    Team T-FORCE Gaming Launches the Next-Gen with Overclockable DDR5 Memory

    The increase is in the supply voltage which is then regulated on module. Goal was likely a more stable voltage at higher voltages with multiple modules.

    AMD Fixes Intermittent USB Connectivity Issues on 500 Series Chipsets, BIOS Update Arrives in April

    You people need to get real. I live in Silicon Valley and I had to do without toilet paper for months this past year and you guys are crying about waiting a couple months for a driver update.

    6900xt degrades below stock speeds within 4 Weeks?

    Simple fact is the OP moved the goal post several times. Fact is you can damage your gpu running Furmark. OP tried to take it back but we all saw him state he ran it overnight. Also running Furmark for an hour on a 750w psu probabably subjected the card to some very large ripple. Most of his...

    TSMC Could Build Six GigaFabs in Arizona

    Arizona has tons of solar power to offset the heat management costs. The other reason it will probably happen is the U.S. Government wants manufacturing here, for security reasons.

    6900xt degrades below stock speeds within 4 Weeks?

    i9 reaches 291w when pushed, plus 619w = OP is unrealistic.

    6900xt degrades below stock speeds within 4 Weeks?

    i9 10900F @5.33GHz and a 6900XT @ 2700MHz on a Be Quiet 750w. " Live by the sword die by the sword."

    CPU Stuck In C3% and will not move. Tried everything. Any advice?

    Check your ports, make sure there's no remote connection that's not supposed to be there.

    Intel Has Fixed its 7 nm Node, But Outsourcing is Still Going to Happen

    Intel 10nm is NOT equal to TSMC 7nm. It's fine for low power parts but is NOT suitable for large high clock chips. The yields are terrible. It also took Intel like 4 yrs to make that 10nm process even viable for notebooks.

    Switching to AMD - questions about a couple of ASRock boards

    I am using a B450 Steel Legend as we speak. Everything the other guy said about it is incorrect pretty much. He obviously got it before AMD got the Ageasa straightened out. Running right now with .950 SOC no problem. You don't need monster VRM's because these chips pull no more than 125w, same...
