    RX 580 No Longer POSTing

    according to sapphire's site, some nitro+ models have UEFI bios, others do not or have legacy+uefi, i'm not sure if this is a hardware difference but it most definitely is a bios difference in your bios settings, you may have options for 'uefi' vs 'uefi+legacy', maybe try enabling legacy also...

    System Shut Down By ASUS Surge Protection when Gaming/3D Load

    980ti is more performance & uses more power, it should be seen in reviews, just check shoot, but 1800x is probably kind of a lot more power than 3770... it's not like the asus thing would be wrong if the psu is giving unstable power, but we need to confirm this, you have to look at the...

    AMD to release 7nm Vega gaming card and a Polaris refresh by end of 2018?

    wccf stated vega was for apple, navi is for ps5, the development & launch schedules are based on them rather than amd running its own schedule vega is strange that it only has low end or maximum end, mid with gddr5 is completely missing, that's the main problem with it, that's what 580 should...

    **FIXED** MSI RX 570 4GB issues

    dont (good) miners alter their bios to use very specific clockspeeds & memory voltages/timings/etc? too low memory voltage would be unstable for games but could be fine for mining, you might as well flash an official bios just to be sure since you have a known mining card, it's of use to...

    AMD to release 7nm Vega gaming card and a Polaris refresh by end of 2018?

    mighty, i can answer you (yeesh everyone is so hostile) so you're eager for amd rumors, but how come not for nv rumors? meaning, you accepted what jen said at computex without cross checking the rumors & context, of course he needs to assure press & especially shareholders, it's risky for a...

    Upgrade 2500k

    do you really think there will be a major problem in only two years where multiple games are using so much cpu specific processing that they need more than 4core8thread just to be playable? is this on a 1060? in an age of dx12/vulkan? what about everyone on the 6c6t or 4c4t coffee lakes or...

    Are your Browsers subject to Cryptojacking ? Test within!

    i disabled filters in ublock/umatrix, still says protected in FF, didnt bother trying to disable the addons entirely (edit: or enabling third party cookies), do note that modern secure FF comes with some disconnect (addon) & extra anti-tracking features built in the only other thing i have...

    Upgrade 2500k

    ME is a hassle yes, maybe you can find someone to do it or mod the bios with known settings (because that's all it is, a bios file mod, the hassle comes if you do not have a way to download a bios or recover during a problem, but some mobos have dual bios, brands give you a download, users...
