    Clock Tuner for Ryzen (CTR) 2.0 Released, Supports "Zen 3" Ryzen 5000

    I did get the diagnostic results before hitting the Tune button. Went from Silver rated, 24/7 stable(my own independent testing) 4.3Ghz and 4.4Ghz bench stable at 1.325v... To well Bronze rated and 4.3Ghz at 1.325v results in crashes. I could easily bench at 1.300v and 4.3Ghz all core before...

    AMD Updates StoreMI with Support for Threadripper Pro and SSD Partitions

    The original version was a 3rd party software that AMD licensed in a limited fashion. It had some issues... Like the ram drive was live and if you crashed out or lost power, you'd lose or corrupt data. I also believe it was kind of hard on NAND. So the new one has lost some functionality...

    Clock Tuner for Ryzen (CTR) 2.0 Released, Supports "Zen 3" Ryzen 5000

    Be supremely careful. This honestly kinda trash software decided to ram 1.55vcore into my Renoir. I stepped away to have supper and it degraded my cpu noticably. Because fuck me for trusting it couldn't actually go above a fucking reasonable voltage. 1.55vcore is LN2 territory, not ambient...

    Samsung Announces Mass Production of 13.3"-16" OLED Panels for Laptops

    You know 4K panels are bloody horrible for battery life. 4K panels should remain outliers with the majority being 1080 or 1440p on actual portable machines.

    I actually kinda want to buy one... I had the Sony, but yeah it's specs definitely hurt it. Here's some benchmarks they published on the Indiegogo... Pretty impressive:

    EVGA Unleashes XOC BIOS for GeForce RTX 3090 FTW3 Graphics Card

    Still not the vbios they are handing out to their chosen 'few'. This bios will not challenge those at the top, but I guess gesture is nice despite the smoke and mirrors EVGA is engaging in. Just remember this like the 3080 vbios aren't the ones people have been requesting. Those are 800W+...

    G.SKILL Trident Z Royal DDR4-4000 MHz CL15 2x8 GB

    Great review on some nice ram. Just two problems... 1. The ram is gold coloured, when talking about the light bar it's called silver. 2. In the test system setup, the AMD cpu is called a 4000x. Just some minor errors I noticed.

    ClockTuner for Ryzen Version 1.1 Released

    This App is using the same mechanisms that PBO does to adjust things on the fly. It's literally a soft mod for PBO. It changes the clock/volt/frequency tables of PB/PBO.

    AMD GPU gamers only - your opinion on AMD drivers?

    In my experience, they've been solid. The people I know with 'black screen' issues were tied to hardware failures that weren't the card eg: PSU, RAM, mobo, etc. My glitches have been rare, though I was bitten by the VII bugs breaking compute, breaking Edge... LoL I'd say between my Radeons and...

    Intel Alder Lake-S CPU Has Been Pictured

    I was just having some fun. No need to be so serious. I was just pointing out they've been hurling that dirt back and forth for a long time. On the other hand, both of these companies act like they are in kindergarten at times. Sooo.... You have a point. Heh

    Intel Alder Lake-S CPU Has Been Pictured

    AMD mocked Intel for gluing dies together on a package first. Pentium D vs Athlon 64 X2 Then the Pentium 3 returned and paddled AMD so hard they launched Bulldozer.... ROFL

    ClockTuner for Ryzen Version 1.1 Released

    PBO features this uses don't exist for Zen 1 and +. So you'll likely never see this backported.
