    stream KODI library to OUTSIDE my home network?

    I dont know how you setup your Kodi on, but if you have your Kodi in VM hosted in PC/server, I think you can setup NAT, with private address for inner network and public address facing outside, which then you can setup PPTP VPN to connect into your server.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Renderings Emerge

    400 dollars still too rich for my taste. especially AIB is known for marked up the price and overlapped price between two SKU is quite common.

    AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Pictured in the Flesh

    400 series is the most versatile board ever, from lowly 2c/4t zen+ cores, up to 16/32 zen 3 let that sink in for a moment.

    MSI's Entire Lineup of AMD 400-series Chipset Motherbord will Support "Zen 3"

    is not surprising seeing MSI support 5000 series across all 400 chipsets, if I recall it correctly when AMD said 3000 series would only work with x570 at that time, MSI have the loudest voice to ask AMD to release the bios to support 400 series as well.

    AMD to Enter the FPGA Market, in Advanced Talks to Acquire Xilinx

    in case you don't get it, he referring to ATI acquisition was valued at 6Bil (5.6 to be precise) which was super-overpaid at that time.

    AMD to Enter the FPGA Market, in Advanced Talks to Acquire Xilinx

    this is the first AMD major acquisition since ATI purchase, I really hope that they don't overpaid it otherwise, they might not even be able to financially recover this time and perish for good.

    AMD Ryzen 5000 "Zen 3" "Vermeer" Launch Liveblog

    if AMD follow their tradition, there will be non X SKU which hopefully shave off another 50-100 unnecessary spending on X counterpart.

    GALAX Confirms GeForce RTX 3080 20GB and RTX 3060, RTX 3060 Matches RTX 2080

    if 3060 = 2080, which I hope 250-300 price range, it would be a very ideal time for 1060 upgrade.

    The Reason Why NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3080 GPU Uses 19 Gbps GDDR6X Memory and not Faster Variants

    err I mean higher clocked G6X one, sorry for missing out the information.

    The Reason Why NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3080 GPU Uses 19 Gbps GDDR6X Memory and not Faster Variants

    let's see if Nvidia allows AIB to put G6X memory since they have much better cooling solution than Founders Edition. if not, then this reason is bs and Nvidia just want to gimp RTX 3080 with memory bandwidth for segmentation purposes.

    Various Custom RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 Graphics Cards Priced in Germany

    what kind of logic is that? high price-tag is the result of monopoly and no competitor on the market. so you are saying that current ryzen cpu should cost as much as intel cpu on pre-ryzen era because it can do some heavy lifting as Xeon and Core X did?

    New workstation for IT/Dev build advice

    since you will be using VM, I would suggest you to use AMD instead as it offer broader range of CPU core counts up to 3950X on AM4 instead of maxed out on 8c/16t with Intel. as for GPU, RTX 3070 will fit the bill nicely as its cost 500 directly from nvidia and also has tensor cores for your AI...

    NVIDIA Announces GeForce Ampere RTX 3000 Series Graphics Cards: Over 10000 CUDA Cores

    my initial reaction when the pricing is revealed is that AMD is so done this time, unless they able to pull some magic from their hat. especially 3070, it will be really hard to beat.

    Ryzen 3700x with ASROCK B450 Steel Legend ATX MotherBoard

    even for normal usage without any overclocking in mind, it's still objectively bad board when compared to similarly priced board that have much better VRM. You spent same amount of money that otherwise that could be spent on higher quality board.

    Ryzen 3700x with ASROCK B450 Steel Legend ATX MotherBoard

    I wouldn't recommend B450 Steel Legend, as its widely known with poor VRM, you cant go wrong with any of decent MSI board like B550 A Pro/Tomahawk Series

    What free multiplayer game is worth playing?

    - CSGO (Free language course included !) - DotA (Bring out your darkest and worst side of you) - PoE (you may want to buy stash tab much later in the game, Ph.D. degree is really helpful to fully understand this game.)
