    Intel and Wargaming Join Forces to Deliver Ray Tracing to World of Tanks

    They are a scam due to the price tag, not so much the initial dipping toes in water with ray tracing. And tbh, so far I have not seen a raytracing comparison that actually impresses me apart from maybe the Quake remake ;) But on the topic at hand, yeah it seems to just make the shadows that are...

    Bitspower Launches New Summit M CPU Block with OLED Display for Intel and AMD Platforms

    Well if we are going to mention the manufacturing process then any component looks impressive, even those that cost 40 dollars. A temperature sensor and a display, I mean, those really cost nothing at all tbh.

    Bitspower Launches New Summit M CPU Block with OLED Display for Intel and AMD Platforms

    Can anyone explain the costs of these blocks? its a tiny bit of metal with some fins in it, why does this cost 150 dollars. Its it just the niche market, they can ask whatever they want type of deal? Even half of what they ask I would find a bit chunk of change for what you are ultimately buying.

    AMD Announces New Radeon Embedded E9000 Series GPU Models

    you and me both, but before that can happen we will have to see some REAL innovation/improvement in the videocard space. back to single slot would also mean back to much lower power consumption, can you imagine the next high end card running off a single 6-pin?

    Sharkoon Announces the RGB FLOW Chassis

    Has to be designed by a robot and approved by a robot, there is nothing appealing or new about this case, it has zero reason to exist.

    PCI-Express Gen 6.0 Specification to Finalize by 2021

    So when will GPU's just be PCI x4? Seems the bandwith will be more then plenty for now and maybe it can free up some real-estate on a motherboard if its all x4

    Possible XFX Radeon RX 5500 THICC II Pictured

    Really hard to take you seriously XFX when GN completely wipes the floor with your crappy designed cooler and you just keep on using it without any changes... Its disrespectful for your consumers and those that test your product.

    AMD TRX40 Chipset Not Compatible with 1st and 2nd Gen Threadrippers

    honestly, this is pretty sad stuff from AMD, even IF there is a good reason for this it would be nice if they would at least make a 3rd gen Threadripper chip specifically for X399 so those adopters can at least upgrade to that.

    AMD Introduces Radeon RX 5500 Series Graphics Cards

    While I would never pay that much for one considering how quickly they dont perform well at the high end anymore, 600 bucks for a high end pc product has been the norm for a while so I dont consider that too crazy. But again, not something I would pay myself. thats only because of how they...

    MSI Announces the MEG X570 Unify Motherboard

    I think a plastic fan is a LOT cheaper then the (sadly) old-school full on copper arrays we used to have. And sure a fan is a moving part so it can break/die but by that time you probably will have bought a new motherboard already or just replace that with a proper aftermarket heatsink.

    AMD Introduces Radeon RX 5500 Series Graphics Cards

    I would expect the entry level (RTX2060) gaming card to cost 200 - 250 dollars/euro. The mid level (RTX2070) card to be about 350 - 400 - 450. The high level (RTX2080) card to be about 600 dollar. The ultra high end (RTX2080Ti) card to be about 750 dollar. ya know.... like it used to be before...

    NVIDIA Could Launch Next-Generation Ampere GPUs in 1H 2020

    honestly, who cares? prices are way too high anyway, anyone with some self respect would not buy cards right now. guess the one thing that I would be interested in seeing, that imo needs to happen with these cards, is atleast a doubling in ray tracing performance because that is no where near...
