    Things are little crazy here:

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Released: TU117, 896 Cores, 4 GB GDDR5, $150

    Not much to add, only to say that comparing to 1660 the difference is huge. I was expecting something around the level of 580

    ASUS and ASRock AMD X570 Chipset Motherboards Listed

    You might be right to believe most people will be happy with PCI-E 3.0. In reality, the move is driven by the computing, in particular AI market. Bringing it to the gaming board probably is just a by product, but lots of “gamers” let me tell you: many. Maybe not the main frame of the school...

    ASUS and ASRock AMD X570 Chipset Motherboards Listed

    I am not sure what makes you think a gaming board cannot do serious work, you need to read more about computing in general, not limiting yourself to the headline. There are tons of homelab builders and even laboratories using gaming grade computer components to run experiments with GPU. Oh...

    ASUS and ASRock AMD X570 Chipset Motherboards Listed

    Quit thinking gaming is the only purpose/use of GPU already. There is a thing called compute.

    Vega 56 to WX Pro 8200

    What's the motivation? I thought now the Pro driver just works with gaming cards. And for the FE, it is a Pro card and shouldn't show too much differences except for the ECC part from 9100 iirc.

    NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang on Radeon VII: "Underwhelming (...) the Performance is Lousy"; "Freesync Doesn't Work"

    The poll is one of the best follow-up I have seen.

    AMD Announces the Radeon VII Graphics Card: Beats GeForce RTX 2080

    Exactly what I think, if they are able to sell lower bin chips at a price similar to a competing product, why not? As the users this may not be a wonderful new product, but it is at least an option.

    AMD Announces the Radeon VII Graphics Card: Beats GeForce RTX 2080

    Depending on the FP64 performance, this can be a hell of a card for compute, though it would have been perfect if it comes with PCI-E 4

    ADATA Launches UE700 Pro USB Flash Drive

    There is really little reason not to get Silverstone MS09 and a so so so cheap SATA M.2 SSD nowadays. I can't be happier with my Intel 545s portal drive.

    NVIDIA Presents the TITAN RTX 24GB Graphics Card at $2,499

    Tesla is still worth it for DP, just not HP anymore.

    Intel Core i9-9900K

    As someone who writes his own code who can do multi threading, there is no hesitation choosing 2700x over this. And then if I game, I can choose 8700k or even 8600k for their almost identical single threaded performance as 9900k. It’s a premium to pay to get the best out of both world; more...

    Intel Officially Launches 9th Generation Processors Including the 8-Core / 16-Thread Core i9-9900K

    That’s one more thing Intel learnt from AMD’s Vega launch, apart from the number of cores and TIM.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Benchmarks Allegedly Leaked- Twice

    It depends on your pocket but with that price jump I can’t say it’s worth it. Especially 1080Ti are now significantly cheaper.
