    XFX Radeon RX 590 Fatboy 8 GB

    Perhaps, I certainly wouldn’t put it past nVidia. However, $425CAD (~$320 USD) shipped for a BNIB 1070ti gives me a lot if performance that i can use right now and not maybe down the road later with driver improvements. With respect to the above HWC had a good article on the 780ti and 290x...

    XFX Radeon RX 590 Fatboy 8 GB

    So glad I pulled the trigger on a 1070ti instead of waiting for reviews on the 590. At its current price it’s just doesn’t seem worth it.

    ZOTAC GeForce RTX 2070 AMP Extreme 8 GB

    I’ve been keeping my eyes out and came real close on a used evga hybrid 1080ti for ~$650 CDN but didn’t want to worry about the pump. I don’t trust buying off kijiji or ebay or want to deal with importing stuff from the US so my options are quite limited (albeit self imposed).

    ZOTAC GeForce RTX 2070 AMP Extreme 8 GB

    I just hope consumers are voting with their wallets and not buying these cards (not aimed at Zotac directly but rather nVidia) at current prices. I’de love to replace my dead 780Ti with something newer than the amd4870 I salvaged, but these prices make that an easy no go.

    Intel Core i7-9700K

    Looks good, if it shows up in a black friday sale it could be quite tempting. Not having read the review fully, does it have hardware fixes for spectre/meltdown or will that come with future chips?

    Swiftech H360 X3 AIO

    Would definately take this over a standard AIO any day, but after my Swiftech h240-x’s pump died I’m too gun shy to get any pump that isn’t a Laing D5. Plus those charts show just how impressive the NH-D15s does if your case can take it and you arn’t after LEDs.

    Intel Core i9-9900K

    Wow, only skimmed through all the performance tables but this CPU looks pretty damn good. Now to go look at pricing... $660 on Newegg Canada, a little bit more than what I paid for the 3930k. I could live with that if I ever move on from my 4790k.

    Need for speed with an Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 CPU

    Only managed 3.65GHz on my q9550, although stable from day 1 and still in use. 5GHz and stable, even on a faster model, seems like quite a reach. Mine was a C1 not the E0 stepping though.

    Remedy Shows The Preliminary Cost of NVIDIA RTX Ray Tracing Effects in Performance

    I’de sacrifice image quality for refresh rate (up to 120-144hz range), not the other way around. I’de rather not sacrifice either though.

    NCIX Database Servers Containing Unencrypted User Data Cause Yet Another Data Breach

    I dunno, as an ex employee they probably have his social insurance number on there somewhere.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition 11 GB

    Nice enough performance but i’ll look for a deal on a used 1080ti instead.

    How do these compare to the 6XX and what justifies the price increase?

    What kind of name is SMACH Z? Is it an acronym for something?
