    First Comprehensive Review of the Core i7-11700K (ES) Surfaces

    I never once mentioned the 11400F. What I did talk about was the 11700k, because that's the subject of this post, and all my points are vaild. The 11700k apparently uses 20% more power, and is the same speed @1080p in games according to the few benchmarks we've seen. It's only impressive if you...

    First Comprehensive Review of the Core i7-11700K (ES) Surfaces

    Ah yes, your source gives the 10700k at 4k a tiny fps lead in some games from this highly reputable youtuber that has a whole 2k subs who doesn't even do controlled benchmark runs, and the actual in-game benchmarks he does run? 2-4 fps. You understand that one 4k run isn't representative, actual...

    First Comprehensive Review of the Core i7-11700K (ES) Surfaces

    You understand how biased you sound in this post, correct? The 11700k doesn't look like an awful product if you only compare it to Intel's other products, but it doesn't look particularly appealing when you consider AMD's offerings as well. The 11700k compared to the 5800x: 11700k has much more...

    AZZA Introduces CAST Mid-Tower ATX PC Case with Removable Outer Shell and Independent Frame

    Uh, what? With a dust filter, the maintenance on a PC consists of 1. Remove Dust filter. 2. Clean off Dust filter. 3. Put back in. A PC isn't mechanical(except the fans), there's no oil to change or need to lubricate gears, so your car example isn't relevant. The extent of maintenance with a...

    AZZA Introduces CAST Mid-Tower ATX PC Case with Removable Outer Shell and Independent Frame

    ... and I hate it. I legitimately hate open designs, or designs with absolutely no filters(fine mesh is... iffy). In my opinion filters are worth the cost of a few degrees for the convenience of not having to clean the entire PC out every few months.

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

    US Manufacturing coming back is a fantasy that people that ignore economics cling to. Manufacturing jobs in the last 4 years in the US increased by around 450,000((https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/MANEMP). COVID subsiquently eliminated all the gains. Manufacturing under the previous...

    Intel Core i9-11900K CPU-Z Benchmark Score Leaks

    The 5800x is above the 11900k in the multi-threaded graph. If the 11900k is priced above the 5800x, at or near the 5900x's price, it won't even be worth considering in most use cases(assuming 5800x & 5900x are in stock).

    Intel Core i9-11900K CPU-Z Benchmark Score Leaks

    5900x vs 11900k 2.5% Faster than a 5900x single core 34% slower than a 5900x in multi-core. Seems like a... something I guess. This CPU will need to come in at 5800x's price to be competitive as long as there's stock of 5800x's to be had by the time the 11900k releases.

    The Ultimate Zen: AMD's Zen 3 Achieves 89% Higher Performance Than First-generation Zen

    Edit: Got the core count wrong for the 9700k. Hard to compare Intel through 4 Generations. 7700k was a 4/8 Core Part 8700k was a 6/12 Core Part 9700k was a 8/8 Core Part 9900k was a 8/16 Core Part 10600k was a 6/12 Core Part 10900k was a 10/20 Core Part 9700k is 0.2% faster in CPU tests & 2%...

    How is Intel Beating AMD Zen 3 Ryzen in Gaming?

    I'm sorry, but this is getting old. Every post you're comparing the 5600X to the 10700 & 10700k even though I've shown you, clearly, that they are in different price brackets, and are not direct competitors. I've shown you that the 10700 & 10700k are anywhere from 8%(in the best case, and the...

    How is Intel Beating AMD Zen 3 Ryzen in Gaming?

    Are you still going on about the 10700 vs the 5600x? For real? I've been over this with you a few times already. The 10700 is $325(8% more) at B&H right now. That's the lowest it currently is on any normal site such as Amazon, Newegg, B&H, etc. Just because you can find it for less on a few...

    AMD Ryzen 5 5600X

    1. Yes, two CPU's that cost more than the 5600X are sometimes faster than the 5600X. Again, the 5600X is slotted between the 10600k & 10700. 2. The 10700k is not a competitor to the 5600X. How many times do we have to go over this? The 10700k is $375 on B&H, Amazon, Newegg & Best Buy as the time...

    AMD Ryzen 5 5600X

    10700 non-K, because of it's low base clock, is slower in the majority of CPU(-7%) and ±3% in gaming tests on the review itself, and it's more expensive than the 5600X. Great? The 5600X slots in-between the 10600k & 10700 non-k really quite well. It's faster in almost every case than the 10700...

    AMD Ryzen 5 5600X

    I'm not sure why you are comparing a $300 CPU to a $375 one. Clearly the 5600X's competition is the $275 10600k. The 5600X is faster in the cumulative CPU(11%) & Gaming tests(3.8% @720p) than the 10600k. The 5600X is around 10% more expensive. The price is somewhat justified then, is it not...

    AMD Ryzen 7 5800X

    1. 5800X uses less power than the 10900k in gaming. It isn't "OC'd", it's just an efficient architecture with a good boost algorithm. The stock 5800X uses less power than even the 6/12 10600k in most power tests on TPU. 2. AMD can price their CPU's however they want to. 2(a). You're joking about...

    AMD Ryzen 5 5600X

    ±3% is about as good as nothing within the games tested by TPU, verses all games in general. You will see some games where the 5600X is faster, and some where the 10700(non-k) is faster. Productivity gives the 5800X a fairly clear 7% win over the 10700. It's an easy choice if you do any sort of...

    AMD Ryzen 7 5800X

    Does... it need to be? It's within 2% of the 10900k @720p. Some games it will be faster, some games it will be slower. Civ 6, Rage 2, Sekiro & Wolfenstien 2 for example, the 5800x is faster than the 10900k @720p. It's also $100 less than the 10900k.

    Intel Rocket Lake-S CPU Benchmarked: Up to 22% Faster Compared to the Previous Generation

    Intel: "Please don't pay attention to the new Ryzen 5xxx CPU's coming out in a few days and keep talking about us and hold out for almost half a year for our new CPU's." This would be interesting news.. if the CPU's weren't about half a year off, we didn't have new CPU's coming out in a few...

    ASUS GeForce RTX 3090 STRIX OC

    Titan class cards before the Titan RTX & Titan V used to cost $1,200 MSRP. Nvidia doubled the price with the RTX(& V), because they doubled the price of their flagship gaming line. There's only 1 reason to buy an RTX 3090, and that's productivity work that needs more than 10GB, and you also...

    Microsoft Announces Acquisition of Bethesda Parent Company ZeniMax Media

    FPS limit exists because the physics are tied to the FPS. This is an engine limitation that cannot be overcome, or if it can be fixed, not without a massive rewrite. Why would they rewrite an engine that's 20+ years old? No doubt there's a limitation on animation in the engine that creates the...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Founders Edition

    We get it, you don't like AMD and Radeon. You've replied and posted in this thread multiple times ranting about the AMD fanboys that barely exist in this thread. AMD GPU's are a month and a half off, it's not unreasonable for people to wait and see what performance Big NAVI & RDNA2 brings to...

    MSI Releases Optix MAG272C Monitor: 27" VA, 1080p, 165 Hz, 1 ms

    I guess you didn't understand what I was saying. Your 24" 1080p screen has around 12.5% more pixel density than a 27" 1080p screen. 24" 1080p is around the maximum a curved monitor should be because of the pixel density and the relative distance you need to be for the curve to matter. A quick...

    MSI Releases Optix MAG272C Monitor: 27" VA, 1080p, 165 Hz, 1 ms

    Another extremely low pixel density 27" 1080p curved monitor. I called it out on the Asus VG27VQ(which is... exactly the same panel from the look of the specs) and I'll call it out here. It has the same pixel density as a 55' 4k TV, and you won't find many people sitting a few feet away from...

    Epic Games Joins GOG in the Goal to Deliver Universal Ownership of Digital Goods

    This wasn't what you were talking about. I was pointing out that you: 1. Don't need to remember to launch the clients if you use GOG Galaxy. 2. GoG galaxy does exactly what you want, it detects you wanting to run the game and starts both the launcher and the game. It will even close the...

    Epic Games Joins GOG in the Goal to Deliver Universal Ownership of Digital Goods

    GOG Galaxy 2.0 will launch the launcher to the corresponding game, and can close the client automatically after you've stopped playing. It's extremely convenient for games on launchers you wouldn't normally start up. The only client I continue to keep open besides GOG Galaxy 2.0 is Steam...
