    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti with GDDR6X to Replace Standard Model with GDDR6

    They probably have an oversupply of 3060Ti chips, but signed a contract to buy lots of GDDR6X? Hazarding a guess here.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 Founders Edition

    Very nice uplift in performance over previous gen, very reasonable power consumption, but price is less than palatable. Unfortunately for us, this trend may continue for the following reasons: 1. rich people/streamer/influencers are moving to PC gaming, 2. cost insensitive companies are getting...

    The TPU UK Clubhouse

    Will be visiting my old stomping grounds in London across Christmas. Not entirely convinced if Rishi will still be the prime minister by then.

    TSMC Cuts Back CAPEX Budget Despite Record Profits

    Most professionals do in fact have an option: they can delay the purchase too, and make do with whatever they currently have. Unless those professionals are aiming for the latest and greatest, in which case they should also have the pricing power to pass on the cost to their customers. For a...

    TSMC Cuts Back CAPEX Budget Despite Record Profits

    We have a lot of say actually. Use phone for 1 more year, buy that budget option, go for the previous gen processors, etc. You can see how Apple is reducing their iPhone 14 orders due to lack of demand. I have no idea how they are going to legislate chip manufacturing and cost though, technology...

    TSMC Cuts Back CAPEX Budget Despite Record Profits

    TSMC is currently the most advanced foundry right now (for certain chip lines at least), they can charge whatever they wish. We as consumers can choose to vote with our wallet.

    First time building in 8 years, need help with new rig.

    13th Gen is likely to be much more powerful than 12th gen. However most of us are still using 9/10/11 gen processors without a bottleneck problem. As for PSU, 850w is plenty of power even for RTX 4090 which may take up to 600w.

    Herman Miller and Logitech G Introduce Vantum, a Modern Gaming Chair Designed for Gamers From the Ground Up

    Unfortunately chairs, like mice, is extremely personal. One person may be raving about it and the other one will hate it from the bottom of their soul.

    Herman Miller and Logitech G Introduce Vantum, a Modern Gaming Chair Designed for Gamers From the Ground Up

    Looks like a cheaper version of Embody. Herman Miller makes great chairs, but if anyone wants an alternative, Steelcase is another great brand.

    USB-C Chargers Are the Future: European Union Signs Common Charging Standard Into Law

    Big fan of this move, I have 2 laptop chargers and a bunch of cables on my desk just to keep everything juiced. If everything can be plugged to the same USB-C port(s) then the number of wires can be drastically reduced and I don't need to keep plugging/unplugging to charge various devices.

    Matter Arrives Bringing A More Interoperable, Simple And Secure Internet Of Things to Life

    The reason why we have so many devices and variants of IoTs is because there are a lot of people who wants something to be connected to the internet, but not everyone wants to connect the same thing. e.g. some people will connect their heating, others will connect their lights. If you want to...

    The USB-IF Announces New Logos, Kills Off SuperSpeed Branding

    This set of logo is actually pretty decent. Now we just have to match 3 different parts (device, cable, charger) to fully utilise anything more than the absolute basic ...

    Depending on how much capacity they booked from TSMC, they will eventually need to move stock.
