    Ryzen 9 3950X reviews are live!

    They don't like the fact you are still using x87 based SuperPi benchmark, something AMD CPUs are terrible at, all iterations of Ryzen included as well. While x87 instruction set might be little bit of a legacy thing, the fact is you are one of the few reviewers left using it. That said, you...

    Intel Announces Core i9-9900KS, World's Best Processor for Gaming Made Better

    No. It wont. I don't really post anymore but, I do own (not owned, OWN) every CPU from 80486DX through 8xxx Intel and Ryzen. I benchmark as a hobby, and have for decades, mostly retro benchmarking lately.... anyway, not to get off track too much, but Ryzen is severely deficient at feeding...

    What's the most interesting mid-range card for you?

    RX 580 no doubt. Best deal per g/pixel count per dollar out there (about $2 USD per g/pix), RTX 2060 is close to $7 USD per g/pix. If you use pure pixel pushing power into account and assuming current average pricing. Although craptocoin crash panic selling sorta exhausted itself already, RX...

    Web Cryptocurrency Mining Evolves: Now Keeps Running After Closing Browser

    Malicious javascript is illegal and is what is behind a good chunk of ransomware. All major AV solutions now scan or handle such code as malware.

    Japan's Nexon Attempting to Buy Out EA?

    After what they did to the Battlefield series, what-with CoD-ifying the whole series, removing bots, reducing sandboxiness of each succeeding title, and in general just further consolifying the games, they deserve something like this. I hope our new far east Asian overlords and future owners of...

    Crytek Creating DirectX 11-like Graphics Effects for Crysis 3 on Xbox 360 and PS3

    Somebody said they will try and make the 3rd one a less linear vs v2. Uh huh, yeah right. If PS3 or Xbawks were forced to render something like the tank level from Crysis 1 (aka "Onslaught" level) they would spontaneously combust and burn down everything in a 4 block radius. It is obvious to...
