    Intel Core-1800 Alder Lake Engineering Sample Spotted with 16C/24T Configuration

    It being scarce will not be a problem for me personally as I don't intend on upgrading my Rig any time soon. When that time arrives I will not be looking at all the first gen products. For someone looking to build a new rig in the coming months it will be a concern I guess.

    Intel Core-1800 Alder Lake Engineering Sample Spotted with 16C/24T Configuration

    I would be more concerned about actual performance than AIDA 64 latency numbers. Comet Lake has better latency than Zen 3 in Aida yet is slower. And with all first gen memory it will most likely be slower than DDR4 at the start. The main thing of DDR5 is to bring more bandwidth.

    Gigabyte Preparing Passively Cooled AMD X570S Motherboards

    Yes it is an Nforce 4 board. I've also owned Nforce 2 boards and never had any fan failures on those either.

    DirectStorage API Works Even with PCIe Gen3 NVMe SSDs

    Interesting I'm not really seeing that on my rig but then again my EVO's are in Raid 0 and not going to break up the raid to test in single drive mode. Would Raid 0 increase RND4k performance I'm not to sure.

    AMD Launches Ryzen 9 5900 & Ryzen 7 5800 OEM Processors

    Kinda par the course when you have a superior product. All companies do this and considering all of these are publicly traded companies if money was left on the table they would have to answer to their shareholders.

    5950X started giving out Whea Buserrors. Looking for OC that would be more stable and what safe voltages to use.

    Based on what I see for your dram calc screen shot you are not importing your XMP into it. You should be using Thaiphoon burner to dump the config from ram then importing that into the dram calc then choose Safe or Fast. Here is mine this section on your screenshot its blank.

    They also didn't specify which version of nvme 1.0e (January 2013) 1.1b (July 2014) 1.2 (November 2014) 1.2a (October 2015) 1.2b (June 2016) 1.2.1 (June 2016) 1.3 (May 2017) 1.3a (October 2017) 1.3b (May 2018) 1.3c (May 2018) 1.3d (March 2019) 1.4 (June 2019) 1.4a (March 2020) 1.4b...

    Rumor: AMD Ryzen 7000 (Raphael) to Introduce Integrated GPU in Full Processor Lineup

    I have old Gpu's that are no longer worth anything that cover this for me no need for an IGpu here.. Still got a radeon 4890 & evga geforce gtx 650 superclocked in a box in the closet for this purpose.

    AMD Launches Ryzen 9 5900 & Ryzen 7 5800 OEM Processors

    Yes they make up for it in volume but OEM's are smart and have more bargaining power than consumers since their orders are so large. The more they pay the less profit they make so its in the best interest to get the deal as low as possible.

    Antec Dark Cube

    I like the look of this case but it find it expensive for all the negatives posted in the review.
