    Project Taara: Alphabet's Laser-based 20 Gbps Communication System Transmits 700 TB Over 5 Km

    vanilla 4G has been proven to cause cancer people that spend too much time on their mobiles on calls also have an exponential increase in the chance of having brain tumors but you're right, no one cares until it hits them

    Intel Core i5-12400 Could be the Next Price-Performance King, Beats Ryzen 5 5600X in Leaked Benchmarks

    were those benchmarks run on Windows 11 where MS is gimping Ryzen? I REALLY expect techpowerup to do a proper oranges x oranges comparisson when benchmarking the new Intel gen, and running all tests on Windows 10

    5G takes too long to cook your brain, this tech can just make a hole through it - progress!

    AMD: orders chips TSMC: produce chips, then ships them to AMD and charge $ AMD: put chips in shiny boxes, send it back to TSMC, and charges $$ TSMC: get their silicon back for their servers for twice the price AMD: profit

    AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT: All You Need to Know

    agreed happy I went with the Powercolor 6800 Fighter (non xt), with some undervolting I'm running stock <200W total on my HTPC (great card btw, awesome value in AU/NZ).

    NVIDIA Announces New CMP Series Specifically Designed for Cryptocurrency Mining; Caps Mining Performance on RTX 3060

    With low quality textures I guess. My 6800 16GB have used up to 15!!!GB playing Sotr at 4k ultra + rt ultra + msaa. Many other games here using above 10GB at 4k with everything set to ultra. Buying a new expensive card and having to dial down pq so it doesn’t burst the 8/10GB limitation doesn’t...

    Sapphire Radeon RX 6800 XT Nitro+

    Yes, the 5700XT at launch was barely faster than a 2070, but nowadays it matches the 2070S according to a few recent reviews.

    AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT

    yeah no, if you want 4k at ultra, 10GB won't be enough. DLSS, much like PhysX, will prob be only available on a handful of titles. And it isn't slower, it's about the same while overclocking much more and using much less energy. I also have a Sony X900H 4k@120hz to feed, and a 16GB highly...

    AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT

    if you ever remember, could you please test whether the hw bug present on the 5700 series where PCM sound through HDMI will drop every ~minute for 1 second is still present in the 6000 series? this is a well know issue in the community, never address by AMD (prob due to a hw fault).

    AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT

    Have you read the results properly? https://tpucdn.com/review/amd-radeon-rx-6800-xt/images/metro-exodus-rt-2560-1440.png It's around 10% faster than a 2080 TI on RT

    How is Intel Beating AMD Zen 3 Ryzen in Gaming?

    I had posted my concerns on the 5900X review (and how cheap / sweet spot a 3600 C16 kit is), so I'm very happy that this whole thing has been cleared out. Good job mate.

    AMD Ryzen 9 5900X

    I love TPU for the design / graphics presentation, but this review really dropped the ball. Sorry, 3600C16 memory is dirty cheap now (we're at DDR4 peak, DDR5 next year), and AMD said that this platform could go to 4000 Mhz 1:1 mem/flck, so this piece really feels biased / tuned to protect...

    AMD Navi 21 XT Seemingly Confirmed to Run at ~2.3, 2.4 GHz Clock, 250 W+

    Recent benchmakrs from HW unboxed show the 5700xt tied with the 2070 S, both first parties. The AMD fine wine attacked again (new uArch so of course big gains over time).
