    DDR4 vs. DDR5 on Intel Core i9-12900K Alder Lake

    The 3600 CL16 kit looks like the real winner from these tests. May end up just going with a DDR4 board.

    86 Motherboards Compared for Intel Z690 Alder Lake

    From what I've read (Here) the ALC4080 offers the same sound performance as the Realtek S1220A but does so in a different way. I guess the Strix/ROG line do offer more sound related software but i tend to prefer a more bare-bones approach. I agree the value doesn't seem there.

    Waiting on reviews but for now the ASUS Prime Z690-A looks like the board I'll be settling on.

    Panasonic Unveils SC-GN01 Wearable Immersive Gaming Speaker System (WIGSS)

    I read the headline as immersible rather than immersive. Now i’m just disappointed i can’t wear it in the shower.

    ASUS Launches STRIX-E, ProArt Creator and TUF Pro AMD X570 Motherboards

    Was hoping they’d refresh their X570 Prime Pro with a passive version.

    Intel DG2 Graphics Card Leakers Suggest Performance Similar to NVIDIA RTX 3070 Ti, AMD RX 6700

    Would be great if these rumours turn out to be correct. A third player in the high end GPU market will be nice.

    Intel Core i9-11900K

    Disappointing results to say the least. I can't see any reason for me to get this over the competition.

    How much over MSRP are you willing to spend on your graphics card?

    Will wait until they're under MSRP. Because i'm cheap, stubborn, and my 1070 ti still has lots of fight left in it.

    Intel Launches 11th Gen Core "Rocket Lake": Unmatched Overclocking and Gaming Performance

    Waiting for more reviews on these because Anandtech’s early review didn’t give me a good impression. There are 5800x in stock locally that i’ll get if the 11900k is a dud (comparatively speaking).

    OVH Strasbourg fire

    Have rented OVH servers of varying specs for years to host games on dedicated servers, usually through soyoustart or kimsufi brands and from their Montreal location so luckily not impacted by this.

    Samsung Announces Odyssey G9 2021 Monitor with Quantum MiniLED Technology

    Would probably be a strong monitor if it weren’t for the ridiculous curve. I’de have bought the 27” G7 if Samsung knew how to make it flat.
