    Overwatch 2 Supports PvE, Coming to BlizzCon

    By supporting China over Hong Kong, Blizzard wont be getting a cent from me. There is only one thing which matters for Blizzard and Activision and that is money. They chose money over freedom so they can eat poop.

    The costs of Intel gaming vs AMD gaming, who wins? Actually Intel this round, cheaper and faster.

    1- You paid $110 for the ASRock Steel Legend Z390. You can buy the ASRock Steel Legend B450 for the exact same price. 2- Since you bought a non-k CPU, it does come with a boxed cooler but a loud and poor performing one. The Ryzen 7 3700x comes with the Wraith Prism which is a decent cooler. Most...

    G-sync on Freesync?

    Windows 7 support ends in 6 months (January 2020). I don't think it's a crappy move by NVIDIA. There is no good reason for them to waste time and money to support an EOL OS. You can still upgrade for free using the Microsoft upgrade tool if you have a legit Windows 7 licence. You can disable...

    Radeon 7 is Released, What Would You Buy?

    I voted "Nothing, I am disappointed with current stack of GPUs" because of the current prices. $700 for the Radeon 7 or $700 for the RTX 2080. Here in Canada, it will probably translate to ~1000CAD... lol Not interested. I don't care if it's 3x faster than the previous gen, I'm not paying that...

    80°C on RTX 2080

    Get the case out of the cupboard for testing purposes, if temps are still this high then it's not the cupboard. If temps do improve then you'll know why it's so high.

    80°C on RTX 2080

    No, it's not. Considering that it only is loaded @67%, it shouldn't hit 82°C. What exact model are you using and what case is it in?

    Need to upgrade for more FPS

    You mention that your FPS dips below 50 when tanks explode, cars crash, etc when your FPS hovers around 60 to 70 when it does not happen. When you FPS drops, 2 things can be happening. 1- Your CPU is bottlenecking (or single channel memory). 2- Your GPU is not powerful enough. 1- If your CPU...

    Need to upgrade for more FPS

    Thus why, I asked if your GPU usage dips (not CPU) when your FPS dips. You can use GPU-Z, MSI Afterburner or similars to monitor your GPU usage. You want to know if your CPU will bottleneck a better GPU then you need to know if it's the CPU or the GPU that is currently causings the frame dips.

    Need to upgrade for more FPS

    Irrelevant, GPU usage is what matters.

    Need to upgrade for more FPS

    When your FPS dips, does your GPU usage also dips? If it does, then you're CPU (or memory bandwidth (Single Channel vs Dual)) limited and if it does not then you're GPU limited.

    It actually is the best looking RTX 2070 I've seen yet.

    TPU Site Issues 2018

    Isn't it what it should do? If you enter a keyword it overrides everything you could have entered in previous fields.

    Works without issues here using Firefox 62.0.2 on Windows 10 1803.

    Intel 600P going bad?

    The only way you'll know for sure it's the drive is by using it in another computer. OR Find another NVMe drive to test your computer.

    Problem with both my HD 7790 and R9 280x graphic cards.

    This is not a R9 280X. This is a R9 280. The BIOS you need is either this one: https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/158557/sapphire-r9280-3072-140508 or this one: https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/162073/sapphire-r9280-3072-140508-3 Try both and see what happens, one of them should work.
