    AMD Ryzen 9 3950X Cinebench R15 Performance Spied

    That is pretty quick. There must have been some extreme robust cooling on the chip though. 1.775v is pretty high. If this is true that is. Nice find if it is.

    Hmmm I bought the game on Steam. If they actually do this how the heck am I supposed to get my money back. Hope Steam honors there patrons over this.

    Metro Exodus Ditches Steam for Epic Games Store as Timed Exclusive

    As of right now it is still available on Steam. Supposedly, if you buy before the change over(later today) you will still be able to access through Steam. As a side note a company called Tencent Holdings Limited owns 48% of Epic games. It is a Chinese company and is the largest gaming company...

    NVIDIA Releases GeForce 417.71 WHQL Drivers with FreeSync Support

    Bugged for me. Driver would not install. Could not delete. Every time right or left clicked froze system for a few seconds. Lucky for me I mirror image weekly. M2 3.4 comes in handy at times like this. Really wanted to see if Freesync would work on my 34" Ultrawide 2k LG 144hz freesync monitor...

    More Buyers for AMD Due to Intel CPU Shortages, OEMs Unhappy

    Was thinking about waiting for the 9900k. After looking at the rising costs of 8th gen, I wonder what crazy price the 9900k will be. I think I will give the 2700x a try. Today would be a good day to pull the trigger on it. $310. after promo code ending midnight.

    Intel 14nm Processors Face Shortages

    Not seeing any increase in prices at the Egg. Actually the 8600k,8700k and the 8086k, are on sale. But ya I agree they are hurting themselves with lack of 7nm ability, and probable overpricing of the upcoming i9 release.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX Series Prices Up To 71% Higher Than Previous Gen

    Well for these prices I hope it's as good as my old Sapphire Radeon 9800xt. Which adjusting for inflation cost about the same as the 2080. What a beast it was.

    Intel Intros 660p Series M.2 NVMe SSDs with QLC NAND Flash

    I understand that this m2 3.0x4 drive is slower then many. I decided to test the speed vs my crucial m2 ssd. Here are results. The one on the left is the m2 3.0x4 and the Crucial on the right. They both cost 99 dollars. Write time is a tad slower then advertised. However read time is almost...

    Intel Intros 660p Series M.2 NVMe SSDs with QLC NAND Flash

    Yup looks like a great deal. Already at the egg. Trying to find out if single or double sided. Went to Intel and it does not show the back. Same at the egg. If single probably a good idea to slap a heatsink on it. The 600 is single sided, so the 660p most likely is the same I am guessing...

    PC Hardware to Get Pricier Stateside as 25% Import Tariffs Take Effect Late-August

    So.....what country is the i9 9900k finished at? Malaysia? Obviously you know why I am asking this. I think I may have just answered my own question. Dalian, Liaoning, China. Or it could be Ireland hopefully. Wait do we have electronic tariffs on Ireland?

    Eluktronics Eluktro Pro-X

    It sure would be nice if someone could come up with a comprehensive review on this. Currently at the Egg for an extreme crazy low price. 25 reviews all 5 stars. Seems to need a heat spreader though. Even so, read and write speed supposedly rival the best out there. Come on TPU review this item...
