    Intel Core i5-12400 Could be the Next Price-Performance King, Beats Ryzen 5 5600X in Leaked Benchmarks

    According to other news, DDR5 will be expensive at start and for a while, if they don't release DDR4 mainboards for them, then the system as whole will be pricier with Intel than as with AMD. I like cheap(ish) systems with best P/P ratio.

    ASUS and Noctua Announce ASUS GeForce RTX 3070 Noctua Edition Graphics Card

    I don't spend this much money on a VGA card, but i would rather buy this than putting any water (cooling) near my PC.

    Intel Core i9-12900K Single-Thread Performance Allegedly 27% Faster Than Ryzen 9 5950X

    True, since how well made was their Sandy Bridge Core CPUs, and after that year after year they saw how AMD couldn't really compete, they started to slow down until Zen, or at least they didn't improve their fabs as fast as TSMC. But i'm curious what Intel can do with a new-ish architecture...

    Intel Core i9-12900K Single-Thread Performance Allegedly 27% Faster Than Ryzen 9 5950X

    And lets hope that cheaper processors also get the efficient cores too, without asking extra for them too. To be fair Global Foundries was AMD, before they divided themsleves to R&D and production/manufacturer companies, so in a way they hold themselves back, because they couldn't make the...

    NVIDIA RTX 30 SUPER Series Specifications Rumored

    I don't really like the idea of a gaming laptop, for high(ish) performance even for pc we need properly cooled case with large heatsinks on cpu, on vrm and on vga too and big fans, for quiet operation at least. Not to mention they sell it under the same name and offer different performance. But...

    I don't really care about its color because my case is closed, it could be regular green PCB too, just let me have it :D Though black would go for everything.

    Dutch and Portuguese Shops Leak AMD Radeon RX 6600 Pricing

    That's how i see it and my hope too. I don't like when a company is in the saddle and increases their prices, because they can (get away with it). But lately both the greens and reds are doing it.

    Intel Core i9-12900K Single-Thread Performance Allegedly 27% Faster Than Ryzen 9 5950X

    I'm more curious about i5-12400 cpus, with cheaper chipset/motherboard and with more affordable DDR4 memory slots. How will those compare to Zen2-3s and to 10-11th Gen i5s..

    AMD Radeon RX 6600 Reviews Set to Release October 13th

    Sadly they only sell expensive ones I'm not willing to buy a card for more than 250-300, and find those somewhat expensive as well.

    NVIDIA RTX 30 SUPER Series Specifications Rumored

    The sarcasm is strong in this one. But you're probably right, they will announce it for ~200-250, but shops will sell for 500 of course, and not directly form Nvidia so they could sell for double the money. And be it at near MSRP. The 3060 12gb wouldn't be that bad a card for me if I could...

    DRAM Prices Projected to Decline by 3-8% QoQ in 4Q21 Due to Rising Level of Client Inventory, Says TrendForce

    Aren't GPU / VGA card makers doing the same? 1 company increases prices, then the other follow suit. Why don't some organization start checking those kartel suspicious companies too?

    AMD Radeon RX 6600 Reviews Set to Release October 13th

    Why not make reference cards so people could actually buy them from AMD at reasonable prices..? No wonder prices all over the place, when AMD has this attitude, the same goes for nVidia.
