    1800x no longer carried at my local store.

    I don't play many games but Frame time is much better on 7700K ( lower then 5.0ms ) while running on 1440k@144hz in RainbowSix siege and The Division. This offers very fluid gaming experience in ranked matches. But CPU usage stays at close to 90% in each of these games. I suspect 8700K will do...

    1800x no longer carried at my local store.

    As of early this morning 1800X was listed for $299 and now its no longer available. I am very tempted to upgrade my main system with TR but like yourself I am waiting for TR+ or TR2 (however they will name it). Currently 7700K sufficient for the task at hand. Few weeks ago they were selling...

    1800x no longer carried at my local store.

    Intel Processors to Have "In-silicon" Fixes to Meltdown and Spectre This Year

    So much for the resale value of current processors which is null at this point. And when organizations start to replace those vulnerable processors, ebay will be flooded with used CPU's.

    I got two games for free The Division and Rainbow Six as a promotional items with purchase of a NVidia GFX Card. Both of these games went under appreciated by me for that reason. But recently I started to play rainbow six and realize I have been missing out on such a competitive games which...

    Intel Releases Its SSD 760p to the Wild With Competitive Pricing, Performance

    Intel 600P was sole reason I was forced to upgrade to 960 EVO which has been remarkable. My Samsung 960 EVO excels everywhere 600p lags behind and intel never released further firmware updates. I am in need of a bigger SSD and 760p specs on paper looks promising, but not sure if I am willing to...
