    ASUS Reveals Its GeForce RTX 3060 ROG STRIX Graphics Card

    I have a 6800 and in apex I'm locked to 144fps. came from a V64 which didn't do 144 fps at 1440P at 300W, now total board power sits between 80-100W at 144fps.. like vega isn't a good comparison but damn it's efficient!

    Scalping Locust Swarm Takes Out Ryzen 5000 Inventory, Same Fate Awaits Radeon RX 6000

    from what I see the amd cpu's are priced at MSRP in australia. your AUD is worth less than USD, you have 10% gst, a tax which is added often in USA, in arizona that would be 9% or so. however, there is a lot of australia tax for no reason yes, but double... hardly

    ASRock Announces AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Support for its AMD 500-series Motherboards

    It's how it should be done imho. not try to keep everyone happy and give out shitty quality bios cause they're stretched too thin. most people on older boards like that ain't gonna be buying the first round either due to pricing, once updated products come out with some lower msrp's, lower perf...
