    The show off your tech related purchase thread

    Yeah, I can't wait. I'm hoping the 8700K lasts me as long as my 4970K did, and my 875K did before that...

    I'm about to get my laptop repaired at Best Buy...

    IMO, taking a computer to Best Buy or any of the big box electronics/office supply stores is like taking your car to Jiffy Lube to get it repaired. They tend to do the least amount of training possible before sending the people out to start working on customer's computers, and if you're lucky...

    'Grand Theft Auto' publisher Take-Two opens an indie label

    The term "Indie" to me always meant they were "independent" of the major publishers. If you are just a game studio that was formed, and is owned by, a major publisher, you can't be Indie.

    Good bye 4790K, you've been a good CPU old friend!

    forcing core speeds up with cad software

    If it is only using 1-20% with the clock speeds that low, raising the clock speeds isn't going to help one bit. The program simply isn't asking the GPU to do much work, so the GPU doesn't need to raise the clocks. If it is at 20% load at 600MHz, then it just going to drop to 10% load at...

    forcing core speeds up with cad software

    Is the CAD software even using GPU hardware acceleration and hitting 100% GPU usage? If the CAD software isn't using or maxing out the GPU at its current clocks, then the GPU won't raise the clock speeds.

    AMD Issues Official Statement Regarding RX 560 Silent Downgrade

    I used to watch this TV show called To Catch a Predator. It eventually had to go off the air though, because every time they would catch a new predator and shame them on national TV, they had to spend so much time listing all the other people that had also been caught so they didn't appear...

    AMD Issues Official Statement Regarding RX 560 Silent Downgrade

    I'm just going to quote myself for people that don't bother to read, easier than repeating.

    Started building with a intel 286. Last build was a z87 raid10

    I'd say if you were going the HEDT route, then you would probably want to look into X299 instead of the dead X99.

    AMD Issues Official Statement Regarding RX 560 Silent Downgrade

    Re-read my post, then try again. I'm not going to keep repeating myself.

    AMD Ryzen 2800X

    Hopefully they address the chipset shortcomings too.

    AMD Issues Official Statement Regarding RX 560 Silent Downgrade

    Again, nVidia made the specs clear enough that you can use just the memory amount and type to determine the card. Just look at you own screen shot. Notice how nVidia only lists one memory size for each of the 3 versions? DDR3 1GB = Fermi, that is the only one of the three versions that has...

    Android too fast at updating it's Builds

    Releasing updates often to keep the OS secure is a good thing. The issue is the carriers dragging their feet to release the updates to their customers. I know a major cause of that is the carriers highly customizing Android with their own launch, and they have to test and make their custom...
