    EVGA Announces Cancelation of NVIDIA Next-gen Graphics Cards Plans, Officially Terminates NVIDIA Partnership

    I know they won’t, but if they would switch to AMD GPUs i would make the same switch.

    Life and times of Austere Box & Ol' Beastie

    With the new QDOLED panels going into their second generation next year I'm sure we'll see more PC monitors with that tech. Right now it seems to be the cleanest and fastest panel type money can buy.

    I went and re-enabled my old Hydra profiles and got it down to 70c now. Before it was running 1.375v and that had the PL pushed past 200w, now it seems to be hovering around 1.12v and 140w. I'm guessing I have something configured wrong if a full-core load is boosting to that kind of...

    Jeez, I'm not sure why, but my system got a ton of MCM1 and OPN1 units that really slammed the CPU. I checked it this morning and it was sitting at 95c, lord knows how long it'd been there. Weird behavior I haven't seen before from any BOINC project.

    For doing GPU work my client seems to think my computer is always busy and disables it. What counts as "active" for the program?

    Genesis Unveils the Helium 800 BT 2.1 Speakers with ARGB Illumination

    Not too long ago I bought a laptop cooling pad that used an A-A cable to power itself and also allow another usb cable to be plugged into itself so you didn’t lose a port. Have to wonder if I could swap it into this speaker set up or if it would manage to cross pins or something.

    ASUS Previews RT-AXE7800 Router at Computex, 6 Antennas!

    It seems pretty clear to me that the 1 fast port is meant for multi-user and multi-device homes. And isn’t that what WiFi6 and 6E are designed for? Plug in your 2Gbit fiber into the port and let all the kids stream YouTube or download Fortnite while someone streams some 1080p60 sports over iptv...

    Chipped nand chip, will it be ok?

    Yeah as far as I can tell most chips like that are actually a casing for the NAND. I don’t get complaining about their fragility though. Similar components like capacitors around the CPU socket and bare RAM chips on non-heatsinked modules. Just gotta be careful, computers are fragile.

    AMD Readies Radeon RX 6500 XT and RX 6400 Graphics Cards

    IIRC AMD tends to only put a physical 8x connector on their lower end GPUs. I doubt something like a 6400 would be limited by it, but it’s something to look out for, running an 8x2.0 slot.
