    Possible NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090, RTX 3080, and "TITAN Ampere" Specs Surface

    Problem is humanity hasn't invented cryogenic sleep yet...so what are you going to do during 4 years? ;) 4K TVs are already invading our living rooms from quite a while with no juice for feeding them

    Cyberpunk 2077 Delayed Again: Now coming November 19th; Previews Coming After June 25th

    it makes sense, I think it gives time for RTX3000 OEMs to release their custom SKUs. usually they come more or less 1month after the founder edition announcement. RTX2080 was released mid-sept, RTX2070 mid-october. they seems to follow the same timeline. and Cyberpunk is the big teasing for...

    AMD Ryzen 7 4700G is "Renoir" Desktop AM4 Processor: 8-core/16-thread with "Vega" iGPU

    interested by this CPU/APU to drive a 4k TV for the 2D and light 3D couch games from Steam. my only concern is that no later upgrades possible as it will be the last gen with this socket. B550 will last only 1 generation if I am not mistaken ?

    In Win Releases the B1 Mini-ITX PC Chassis

    Nice case ! gonna buy it as soon as it's available in China to sit in my living room as new HTPC. still running reconverted 9800M GTS (4K nok) was going for the Chopin...but the look of the B1 is more appeling to me for my living room. I like the way they manage the mid-transparency of the...

    Editorial Microsoft DirectX 12 Ultimate: Why it Helps Gamers Pick Future Proof Graphics Cards

    Thank you guys for writing this article. I liked it. I love the hype regarding RTX. we are all gamers here. we all love nice graphics. they certainly improve the game experience, most of you started like me on DOS games or even earlier. so when we see the jump from that time this is just like...

    AOC Reveals Two New UltraWide Monitors, CU34G2 and CU34G2X: 34" 21:9 VA, 3440 x 1440, up to 144 Hz, 1 ms, 1500R, FreeSync

    Honestly 34" widescreen 3440x1440 is really a life changer. Best upgrade I did since 10years. 100hz is already great improvement compared to 60hz and already a little hard to achieve with a good GPU due to the beefy resolution. but well, it really worth every penny. love it.

    Nice review Darksaber ! Thank you 1 or 2 questions I'm asking myself : - Why the front face is so well treated for dust filtration, while the rear face does have so many holes everywhere...I actually have the same concept on my Bitfenix prodigy and always wondered why. - How is directed the...

    This looks like an amazing product to drive a 4K TV in living room and for game sessions during biz trips or friends/familly visits on weekends and holidays. would be great to have a noise test and more inputs regarding CPU/ram/GPU/price I'm pretty curious about the inner layout too. The box...
