    XPG Memory and Solid State Drives Support Latest Intel Z590 Platform

    "News" like this should be supporting TPU with a form of revenue; not Chinese key sellers.

    Intel Core i9-11900T "Rocket Lake" Processor Allegedly Catches Up with Zen 3 in Single-Threaded Performance

    Some quick maths? 4.9GHz vs 4.7GHz max single core boost = 4% difference in clock speeds (being in Intels favour) 1717 vs 1674 is the max single thread score of both CPU's mentioned (being in Intels favour again)... but when we take 1717 (the score of the mentioned 11900T) and reduce it by...

    At Stock All-Core Boost, i9-11900KF "Rocket Lake" Hits 98°C with 360mm AIO CLC Under Stress

    Sensationalised news post that intentionally leaves out any mention of the use of ES/QS sample chips running way above the intended speed (these are not retail CPU's with finalised design specs) with way over spec voltage of 1.4v.... Not much to see here.

    HP at CES 2021: The Future of PC Innovation is Now

    I think TPU missed the ball with this one; you should have got paid for this news post. After all, you did such a good job advertising the upcoming HP products... I think this site deserves some of that ad money. :laugh:

    HP at CES 2021: The Future of PC Innovation is Now

    Is this an advertorial/paid placement or something? 2048 words/nearly 13000 characters/12 pictures.... the average TPU reviews contain not much more than this "press release"... and sometimes has less content by a fair amount? No "press release" needs such a long post about basically...

    GPUs to See Price Increase Due to Import Tariffs, Other PC Components to Follow

    And in other news; water is wet and fire is warm. The new prices and the continued rise in cost to the end user is now the new "norm"... prices only ever will go up and never will return to pre-2020 levels. Acceptance - while hard to logically or financially justify - may be the only...

    I just bought a scalpers 3080.. he he

    I'm not sure it was needed (at the above price) when you already own/owned a 2080Ti.... but, congratulations.

    PC Replacement advice

    I'll repost this here again as I think your post is a little jaded or misinformed(both?): It's got better cable management than half of hobbyists can personally manage.. and it comes backed by a 1 year warranty on the entire rig, which no home-builder can provide either.... for less than...

    PC Replacement advice

    Cyberpower specs: Asrock B450 EVGA GPU EVGA PSU Corsair RAM Looks almost unbeatable for the price if compared to stand-alone components. (who'd have thought we'd be saying that in 2020!?) GMA6600WST promo/cyberpower shot: Edit More digging @ Walmart reviews: A nice unit for a...

    PC Replacement advice

    The above link is perfect for the OP and includes a 2060 which would be a giant leap over the GTX960 in use currently.

    PC Replacement advice

    I'll be reply #16... and so far no one has provided even a basic build to this person and the conversation is now seemingly about IE vs Chrome.... o_O Next it'll be about how his budget isnt good enough as everyone needs a RTX3080, 64GB of DDR4 @ 4600mhz and a 4k HDR monitor, with how the...

    Sharkoon Announces Shark Force II Ergonomic Gaming Mouse

    Budget specs. However, having used the Shark Force 1(not this model) as a stand-in mouse while waiting for a the arrival of something better, the mouse was certainly not 'bad'; just dont expect "Logitech G" levels of performance from #2.

    Corsair HS75 XB Wireless

    Reviewing a (mainly) console product, seems kind of redundant on a mainly PC-orientated site... no? I know Corsair frown upon samples being refused review - or maybe even at a negative/not so glowing result at the end of said review - but come on eh? The award badge has been awarded without...
