    MSI GeForce RTX 3050 Gaming X

    The TDP of modern cards have increased significantly since. The current xx50 line-up can no longer be fed exclusively off the PCI-E bus :p

    Intel Core i5-11400F

    Curious, what exactly from their product stack supports avx512? They seem to have a number of products. Thanks.

    Intel Core i5-11400F

    Could this be done strictly in bios, and software/drivers independent unlike Ryzen Masters Eco mode? I world prefer to avoid post boot tinkering with these settings aka Extreme Tuning Utility / ThrottleStop.

    AMD Ryzen 9 5950X

    @Tomgang Makes a lot of sense, thanks for elaborating. I prefer the 5950x approach and design. Going to postpone my upgrade from 4790k a bit (need a GPU as well). @kapone32 I can buy it off you.

    AMD Ryzen 9 5950X

    Well, looking at the temperatures and the power draw, I only like two AMD cpus, 5600x and 5950x. Thanks Alexa. Still surprised that two CCDs run way cooler as a total package, though.

    AMD Ryzen 9 5950X

    5950x consumes roughly the same watts as 5900x, but runs even cooler than 5800x. What gives?

    Improve screenshot function

    I am fine with what we have. HEIC needs plugins and a microsoft account to get the free extension, basically, a bit of a hassle. But whatever :)

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Founders Edition

    You saying, this wasn't rushed? Sure as hell, the leather jacket could of made a better job of supplying more cards to the market. At any rate, lets wait another month and see how AMD handles this.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Founders Edition

    How previously AMD fared in 3dmark? According to leaks, it surely does look mighty. This paper launch sort of proves this point. I expect this to be Zen 2 moment for the AMD graphics card division.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Founders Edition

    Can't wait for the RDNA2 products! I *WANT* 16gb framebuffer, just because.

    Intel CPUs Since Haswell Vulnerable to "Zombieload v2" Attacks, "Cascade Lake" Included

    I believe TSX was disabled later on, at least on some of the Haswell SKUs.

    Sapphire Radeon RX 5700 XT Nitro+ Special Edition

    Thanks for pointing that out. A bit off topic. Now GCN has aged pretty well... 390x 8gb beating 980 ti 6gb @ 1440 medium settings. Nearly on par with GTX 1070 8GB. Looks like, Nvidia is only great for ~3 years and then performance tanks. Next-gen consoles powered by AMD hardware is likely to...

    Winter... X-mas soon :p

    Turing exotic multi-monitor power consumption

    How does Turing fare with non-standard multi monitor setups, power consumption wise, when different refresh rates are involved? e.g. Primary 2K 144 Hz on DP, Secondary 4K 60 Hz on HDMI, Tertiary 5:4 75 Hz on DVI/VGA>HDMI. You get the idea. At least some time ago, this was a problem (high...

    Sapphire Radeon RX 5700 XT Nitro+ Special Edition

    A friend lent me his STRIX 2080 Ti for a week, and this thing has similar power requirements. Just sad, really. Who is buying this over a regular Pulse? Around 2012 I believe. Another question, how many rebrands GCN 1.0 has seen :)
