    Intel Arc Alchemist Xe-HPG Graphics Card with 512 EUs Outperforms NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti

    Geez if you are able to bench using that tool, why not something syntetic or actual in game benchmarks?

    AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT PCI-Express Scaling

    Yes, But the RX580 is pretty much discontinued. You can only buy it 2nd handed. System builders or OEM integrators are'nt going to re-use "old" hardware. If you where a system builder you woud'nt be pairing this with a board thats capable of only PCI-E 3.0. You select a Ryzen with a modest 5x0...

    AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT PCI-Express Scaling

    https://www.techspot.com/review/2398-amd-radeon-6500-xt/ Interesting. SAM was enabled here, offering another 5% rough performance improvement in PCI-E 4.0.

    AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT PCI-Express Scaling

    True, I'm just saying. Some extra performance could always be extracted from hardware, even if you OC the GPU or memory. If you do proper testing it can last for years really. And BTW; even 4Mhz in PCI-E 4.0 terms is quite some hundreds of megabytes a second "extra".

    ASUS Radeon RX 6500 XT TUF Gaming

    Lmao.. I have to laugh so hard on prices being jacked up to the 600$ territory, slapping a 3 fan cooler on it thinking it's big or worth the money. 600$ would net you the fastest of the generation these days. Now even 4000$ would grant you the same. I think all manufactors went the apple...

    AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT PCI-Express Scaling

    Ok i know what i'm going to write is stupid now, but, If you do have a reasonable board, you should be able or capable to increase the PCI-E frequency by either 4 to 12Mhz. You have any idea how much extra bandwidth that provides for a limited card like that? I suggest you try out. Other then...

    Intel Core i5-12400F

    You know thats a 600$ / euro board right?

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 Series Bound for March 2022

    128 Lanes of PCI-E 4. Perhaps you want a lesser core model but with higher frequencies. 10 reasons anyway to think of a TR.

    Comcast Announces World-First Test of 10G Modem Technology Capable of Delivering Multigigabit Speeds to Homes

    Datacaps are imposed to assure that the ISP itself is'nt paying too much to other peerings; basicly from what i understand is that outside certain peerings ISP's have to pay. Perhaps they just charge comcast quite alot. I experience the same too, here in Portugal. I have 1000/100mbit glasfibre...

    AMD Explores Adding Ryzen 5000-series Support to 300-series Chipsets

    The heat output of those server board VRM's is usually no more then 15 to 35W. The cooling is purely because of the passive setup CPU's and GPU's have.

    AMD Explores Adding Ryzen 5000-series Support to 300-series Chipsets

    Have you ever seen a server board? Either AMD or Intel? Did you ever notice such a large setup of VRM's or is the average just "4 phases" ? And while the TDP of such platforms is quite higher (280W), you never seen those things with 12, 14, 16 or even 20 phase setups? Why do you think that is...

    AMD Explores Adding Ryzen 5000-series Support to 300-series Chipsets

    All boards with AM4 socket; can sustain 105W minimum. Even a 50$ board is capable of running the 5950X, a 16 core 32 thread top-end CPU. It's just that; these VRM's obviously will run hot and while running at 90 degrees is perfectly fine, caps around it on the long run cant. When i see boards...

    Two AMD Ryzen 7000 Series Processors Based on Zen 4 Core Appear: 16-Core and 8-Core SKUs

    Afterall, Ryzen's are just disqualified "Epyc's" or "Threadrippers" for that matter. The same tech you see on Epyc is basicly available on Ryzen. It just depends on your work-case and what you need. Need high end workstation stuff? Threadripper. Need enterprise servers? Epyc's. Need a consumer...

    AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT Limited To PCIe 4.0 x4 Interface

    Yep. Lots of engineers these days on these forums, in where their skills obviously exceeds that of AMD mosts professional out there.

    AMD Socket AM5 a "Long-lived Platform": CEO

    It's not so difficult really since the chipset is in the CPU and not on a board, unlike Intel.
