    AMD FSR FidelityFX Super Resolution Quality & Performance

    Results look encouraging. Good work from AMD. Looking forward to see FSR on AAA titles.

    Intel DG2 Graphics Card Leakers Suggest Performance Similar to NVIDIA RTX 3070 Ti, AMD RX 6700

    Shortage does not affect your release schedule. AMD kind of hinted at a 2022 update of their CPU and GPU. While you can say it’s vaporware and you may not be able to get it when it’s announced, but isn’t it the same for most gamers when it comes to the RTX 3000 series. Just the announcement of a...

    NVIDIA to Invest At Least $100 Million in UK's Most Powerful Supercomputer

    Nvidia is already an ARM licensee and able to produce SOCs based on ARM processors even without the acquisition. Apple have no share in ARM, but is still successful in delivering the M1 chip. Likewise for Qualcomm.

    Intel DG2 Graphics Card Leakers Suggest Performance Similar to NVIDIA RTX 3070 Ti, AMD RX 6700

    Whether this is true or not, I think it won't matter much since I think this product is only launching very late this year if not next year. That leaves it with a year or less before it will be competing with the RTX 4000 and RX 7000 series, which will be way out of its league to compete. So...

    Corsair Announces Three New All-In-One Liquid CPU Coolers

    I don't know what's new really. Looks pretty much like the same AIO from the last few generations, other than some fluffy marketing. I've used Corsair H100i Pro before and came out thoroughly disappointed with it. Not only did it got beaten by a Scythe Fuma 2 in terms of cooling performance, the...

    Google Selects 3rd Gen AMD EPYC Processors to Launch First Tau VM Instance

    Another "Ouch" for Intel. Google recently announced that they are adopting their own custom processor, and now follow up with another news about switching to AMD. In both cases, Intel continues losing business.

    NVIDIA to Invest At Least $100 Million in UK's Most Powerful Supercomputer

    I am not sure if pleasing UK is enough for them to complete the acquisition. What is a 100 mil investment considering the money that Nvidia earns each year, and relative to the 40 billion price for ARM? Feels like Nvidia is just throwing in a bone and see if the UK watchdog will bite. Truth is...

    Team Group Steps into the New DDR5 Era, Launches Team Elite DDR5 DIMM

    No reason to jump over to DDR5 so soon. I feel its likely performance will actually regress in some cases. The increase in frequency is not great, but the increase in the memory timings is more than 2 fold.

    Intel Iris Xe DG1 GPU from ASUS Tested

    To be honest, low end cards like this have very little point to exist when APUs are getting increasingly powerful and have the ability to support up to 3 displays at one go. Unless one requires even more display support by the GPU, I am not sure why pay extra for very little benefits. Correct me...

    AMD FSR Supporting 7 Games at Launch, 12 More Games to be Added in the Near Future

    And how many titles supported DLSS when it was first launched? To date, I think the number have gone up to above 50, but that's after 3 years of its existence.

    Facebook Will Trial Showing Ads in Oculus Quest Games

    Anything that Facebook owns, you should not be surprise that it will make use of every possible opportunity to, 1. Take your data/ information for them to use and sell, 2. Post advertisements To avoid that, just avoid anything Facebook and affiliated to Facebook.

    Schenker Announces XMG Core M21 Gaming Laptop with Core i7-11800H and RTX 3060 and CPU Undervolting

    There is no dispute about the potential benefit that undervolting can bring to the table. I certainly would like the feature, and as someone pointed out earlier, I really wanted this feature in my last Intel based gaming laptop from Clevo, but it is not available without flashing the system with...

    AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT LC Specs Confirmed: 12% Higher Core and Memory Clocks, 10% Higher Power

    If I am going for low noise, I think I would prefer a bigger radiator because 2x fan running at lower RPM is going to be less noisy than a single 120mm fan running at high RPM. I would consider a 120 AIO only if there's space constraints. Anyway, it is good to know that the 120mm AIO will be...

    Schenker Announces XMG Core M21 Gaming Laptop with Core i7-11800H and RTX 3060 and CPU Undervolting

    While it’s nice to have the ability to undervolt laptop processors, Schenker basically just acknowledged that, 1. Intel Tiger Lake pulls too much power, and consequently is going to run too hot, 2. They had to compromise cooling to make the laptop light and slim. So by allowing you the option...

    AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT LC Specs Confirmed: 12% Higher Core and Memory Clocks, 10% Higher Power

    I think it’s possible for the 120mm radiator to keep up, but that’s assuming you don’t load the GPU for too long. Under sustained load, the water temp will keep increasing without sufficient surface area to help it lose the heat. Which ultimately will cause the temps to rise. I agree that for...
