    Intel Core i9-10980HK Detailed: 8-core Mobile Monstrosity that Boosts up to 5.30 GHz

    Are they? It would seem that there is no other way. If there's 100% CPU usage that means game problem. As I recall, there are games more CPU bound than others and that is dependent on the game. So if you have 100% CPU usage may not be caused necessarily because a game has a problem.

    Intel Core i9-10980HK Detailed: 8-core Mobile Monstrosity that Boosts up to 5.30 GHz

    We don't see the power usage here for the Intel processor (maybe it has been removed and that laptop is cooled with nitrogen) but we know how AMD 4800H performs and that has been presented here. I'd rather wait for official benchmarks since we dont know how much power this Intel CPU here is...

    Vega 64 in 2020

    Good point with the NV vs AMD but I don't think you can buy a brand new Vega64 now. Maybe some leftovers but I'd bet, OP is talking about a used card. Anyway, I would wait. There is a lot of new stuff coming out and that means previous gen will drop in price for sure.

    Vega 64 in 2020

    At least on ebay the 1660 is cheaper and price starts from $200 1660 Super is more less same price as the Vega64 and I'm talking about brand new 1660 Super.

    Vega 64 in 2020

    I'd wait. I have a vega 64 card and basically it is same performance as 5600 XT. 200 pounds is around $244 add 40 bucks and you get brand new 5600 XT. Is it worth it? to pay $40 bucks less for a used card? If you don't need it don't buy anything. Wait for new graphics from NV and AMD. Either way...

    New Build

    I'm not so sure you are correct with the performance when you look at the difference between gen3 and gen4. The performance difference is very small. The heat the new gen4 drives generate is quite high and you would need some extreme heat-sinks to keep it cool. Is it a good purchase today? Not...

    New Build

    I recommend x570 not because it has PCIe4 but it would be a good solution to upgrade the CPU later on. With the PCIe4 NVME sure but there isn't much difference in performance (gaming and web browsing like OP's going to do with it) and I'd rather wait for more products and better availability but...

    Bitspower Unveils Summit ELX CPU Water Block for AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3000

    Oh. That might be something I will get for my TR's :) It even looks nice and sharp :)

    New Build

    I understand but you are buying new monitor as you've mentioned or at least you want to change it? Graphics card goes along with the monitor. Depending which monitor you wanna get, or at least think of getting that would tell you a bit of the graphics card you may require for compatibility. If...

    New Build

    I wouldn't go for 2080 Super or anything extreme since his goal is 1440p. I'd get x570 for sure and maybe invest in 1TB NVMe drive top notch like samsung 970 pro or at least 970 evo plus and a 2TB storage. With the graphics purchase I'd rather focus on the monitor. Does it supports freesync or...

    Intel Core i5-L15G7 Lakefield Processor Spotted

    OK but it still consumes 7 watts of power and it's faster. That was the main idea and I don't think, if the processor is "bigger" means it is bad or less attractive. Not sure where you are going with this but if you can get a bigger chip, faster than any smaller and slower equivalent when both...

    Intel Core i5-L15G7 Lakefield Processor Spotted

    Still the competition is tough so hope this one can somehow pull this off. In the other terms it is maybe an entry level of a product. Not saying it is bad just have the impression that it is outstanding which so far, in my eyes it is not spectacular. Besides the 8cx Snapdragon consumes 7watts...

    Intel Core i5-L15G7 Lakefield Processor Spotted

    No according to OP. There is variety of laptops but if you focus only on the low power, yeah, maybe but can't say the performance is outstanding in comparison to others' companies offerings. It is OK at most.

    Intel Core i5-L15G7 Lakefield Processor Spotted

    This one we are talking about here scored 756 in single core in Geekbench. Maybe it is not so representative but if we take this approach then basically we can say that about any benchmark. It is slower than ARM here. Maybe it is utilizing not the right core but single core performance should be...

    Intel Core i5-L15G7 Lakefield Processor Spotted

    Yeah. But the territory this CPU is going to be used is mobile which is ARM's area and the latter one is big here and faster. (tablets, phones) What you comparing here is Desktop APU with something designed for mobile. The ARM is beating it in single core by a double and it has same multi...
