    Intel "Raptor Lake" Hits 8 GHz Under Extreme Cooling

    Not even top 100 in the world... pathetic waste of LN2. Fantastic job Intel marketing department, maybe next time try this with a product that's actually good.

    USB4 Version 2.0 Said to get 120 Gbps Asymmetric Mode

    Technically Arc does have DP 2.0, which is one of the only things in its favour. :p

    Silicon Power UD90 1 TB M.2 NVMe SSD

    Decent drive, but overpriced; SM should've rather sampled you the 2TB SKU. Would it be possible to add a power draw test similarly to what Anandtech does? The E21 controller should be noticeably more power-sipping than its competitors, which might make this drive a good use-case for a laptop or...

    ASUS Intros VA27ECPSN Business Monitor with Type-C Support and Integrated Dock

    27" IPS is hardly entry-level... entry-level is 23" non-IPS.

    GoodRAM IRDM Ultimate M.2 PCIe Gen 5 SSD Pictured

    SSD heatsinks are the Ford F150 of PCs. You just know that people who use them are compensating for something.

    Apple to Source 3D NAND Memory from Chinese YMTC

    This is a topic about China, not the USA. So take your whataboutism and shove it.

    PSA: Don't overclock your Ryzen systems Bus the 99/100MHz one

    Like others have said, WTF are you doing overclocking FSB in 2022? Spread spectrum doesn't cause this sort of instability because it constantly switches bus speed to arbitrary values. OP had their bus locked at 101MHz constantly.

    ASUS Intros VA27ECPSN Business Monitor with Type-C Support and Integrated Dock

    It's probably correct. "Business" in a product name from any company other than Dell or Lenovo is generally a sign that the product in question is a crippled piece of garbage.

    Apple to Source 3D NAND Memory from Chinese YMTC

    Nice, now when you buy an iPhone you can be guaranteed that you are helping to fund a regime that routinely commits human rights offenses against its citizens.

    Resizable-BAR a Must for Arc "Alchemist," Stick with Other Vendors if you Lack it: Intel

    That isn't and should never be the consumer's problem. Intel is making it their problem. That's not okay.

    Oddball MSI GeForce RTX 3080 with 20GB (320-bit) Memory Sells in China for Under $600

    Yeah, I don't know what to call them... different versions? But that isn't really germane to my point that "GA102-250" makes zero sense in a product stack where higher-number versions indicate GPUs with higher capabilities. Going by the known GA102 versions, that would put it between a 3080 Ti...

    SilverStone Intros FARA 311 Micro-ATX Case with a 5.25-inch Bay

    Who are these mythical deep-dwelling proto-humans who still have ancient 5.25" devices, yet are looking to buy 2022-era chassis?

    Resizable-BAR a Must for Arc "Alchemist," Stick with Other Vendors if you Lack it: Intel

    No, it does not, because A320 does not get reBAR.

    Thermaltake Rolls Out Toughpower GF3 PSUs with PCIe Gen 5 Connector and ATX 3.0 Compliance

    Given that the 750W supports only two "legacy" PCIe 6+2 pin power connectors natively, I wonder if they're going to ship 12VHPWR-to-PCIe adapters with these PSUs, or expect customers to buy them separately?

    Resizable-BAR a Must for Arc "Alchemist," Stick with Other Vendors if you Lack it: Intel

    Commenting without reading "I forget the mb but it lacked rebar", what dedication.
