    ASRock Returns to its Roots with Wacky X670 Upgrade Card

    Always like seeing neat unusual stuff like this - I remember my first ASRock board and it was one of those described in the article where it had both AGP & PCI-E, giving me a nice easy upgrade path. I have an ASRock board in my main rig that I just upgraded to, and an ASRock board in my Plex...

    MSI Afterburner Developer Hasn't been Paid for a Year, Product Development in Limbo

    Definitely won't be buying anything from MSI moving forward. They're doing that dude pretty dirty when he has nothing to do with the political issues over there. I use Afterburner every day. If there's a way to send the guy $ while I still have a Paypal account, hopefully TPU can post a follow...

    EKWB Lays Off 25% of Workforce, Blames Lower Watercooling Sales

    Ya I just was pricing out a new CPU block as I'm upgrading in about a week...the block was more expensive with another $25 in shipping versus a Corsair block which is cheaper and has free shipping. I decided to give the Corsair a try this time. Love EK, but I don't think a 40-50% upcharge is...

    RTX 4070 Ti Price :(

    Just gotta keep your eyes open and be patient - not every deal is going to be great as some sellers are trying to recoup losses (don't let them), but they're out there. I picked up a used 2080 Ti a couple years ago with a pre-installed WB for $700 shortly after the 3000 series launched when most...

    RTX 4070 Ti Price :(

    Make use of the 2nd / 3rd hand market. Don't pay ludicrous prices for this stuff.

    Epic Games to Pay $520 Million for Using Deceptive Patterns on Children

    Hah. I'd say I'm shocked but...it's Epic.

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt: FSR 2.1 vs. DLSS 2 vs. DLSS 3 Comparison

    +1 I used to really like CD Projekt Red. Not anymore. When this patch launched, their moderation (see: censorship) squad was running all over Steam zapping threads and posts (not to mention banning people) due to the high number of legitimate complaints and negativity.

    This Week in Gaming (Week 50)

    Ya I do appreciate having updates like this where I can just quickly peruse through the list to see if any new games look interesting so I can potentially wishlist them on Steam.

    What CPU architecture do you use?

    Still cruising fine with my X99 platform / 6950X CPU. Cyberpunk was the first game that actually forced me to overclock in order to ensure no performance drops, so that was my yellow flag warning that it was time to plan an upgrade - I'll be upgrading this Jan / Feb in all likelihood.

    How much would you pay for RTX 4080?

    Yep. I loved how the 3090 Ti pricing went down quite fast when very few people were stupid enough to buy them.

    TSMC 3 nm Wafer Pricing to Reach $20,000; Next-Gen CPUs/GPUs to be More Expensive

    These companies can keep running the costs up all they want. It's not going to affect me a bit. I'm happy to be patient and wait for 2nd or even 3rd hand gear as needed. I will not pay more than I feel an item is worth.

    GPU Sales See Biggest Quarterly Drop Since 2009 Recession: JPR

    Great to see people vote with their wallets.

    Intel Elects Barbara G. Novick to Board of Directors

    Yep. Disgusting company.

    AMD Ryzen 7000 Series Processors Get their First Round of Price Cuts, 7950X at $574

    Yep, that was my first thought. When I was researching what to upgrade to recently the key item that ensured I wouldn't upgrade to Ryzen 7k series right now is the mb & DDR5 prices.
