    InWin Shows Off New Signature Chassis, mini-ITX Chassis, and Cooling Solutions

    The signature case looks eerily similar to this Ikea light fixture:

    AMD "Navi 14" and "Navi 12" GPUs Detailed Some More

    You're lucky to have not experienced any issues. My friend experienced crashes and blue screens with his 5700 XT and needed to roll drivers back to 19.7.2 to get it stable. I myself haven't had anything but bad luck with my 5700 XT - crashing any game to desktop that's more demanding than...

    Suggestions For A New Gaming Monitor

    I'm currently running a 32" 1440p Viotek. Decent performance for the price. My friend just purchased this monitor off Amazon, and the picture quality is solid as well.

    New Lord of the Rings MMO being developed by...Amazon...and a chicken farming - processing company

    A free-to-play MMO. Incoming pipe-weed microtransactions anyone?

    Anime Nation

    I really enjoyed Kakegurui as well. High stakes gambling featuring characters absolutely addicted to the thrill of the gamble itself. The story in season two kept it fresh as well. Sets up for a nice showdown going forward. Plus the games they play are ridiculously absurd. Love it.

    I believe it was Attack Titan.

    AMD Radeon RX 3080 XT "Navi" to Challenge RTX 2070 at $330

    Going to treat this rumor with a mountain of salt. However, is the pricing really that unbelievable? It's not as if AMD will have dedicated hardware for raytracing on these things, nor the RnD costs of the RTX cards to make up. It's plausible at least.

    What are you playing?

    Never played previous From Software titles, however decided to pick up Sekiro for the heck of it. I'm really impressed! The challenge is a nice change of pace from my usual strategy/survival rotation. Also played the BFV battle royale mode. It's not bad, a nice alternative to PUBG with much...

    AMD to Unlock Professional Features for Radeon VII to Blunt RTX 2080's Ray-tracing Edge

    Good move considering they marketed this card for content creators as well.

    AMD Updates Wafer Supply Agreement with GlobalFoundries to Free Itself of "7nm Tax"

    The amendment slide states AMD is free to use any foundry for 7nm and beyond without any one-time payments or royalties. That's freeing themselves from something, would you not agree?

    Lenovo Legion Y44w Ultra-Wide Monitor Hands-on

    Wouldn't be surprised if the blurriness is caused by the lack of light and no flash. You've gotta have a tripod to get perfect pictures in a dim setting.

    NVIDIA Confirms Issues Cropping Up With Turing-based Cards, "It's Not a Broad Issue"

    My friend ended up having to RMA his 2080ti and received a refund instead because of short supply. Not exactly a smooth launch so far.

    What are you playing?

    I've been obsessed with RimWorld lately. That "one more task" aspect always gets me.

    How many people still use sound cards?

    I'm running a Creative Sound Blaster Z right now. It's actually my first soundcard as I'd used onboard previously. I'm able to pick up game sounds much sooner than some of my friends which is nice. Plus the audio experience is richer when doing other things like listening to music or watching shows.

    AMD "Navi" GPU by Q3-2018: Report

    Zen+ is supposedly right around the corner for early 2018. That might explain some of the discounts we've seen lately. Also likely to better position themselves against Coffee Lake. It sounds like your nephew's friends simply go for Intel because they've been touted as the best for years...
