    Team T-FORCE Gaming Launches the Next-Gen with Overclockable DDR5 Memory

    The increase is in the supply voltage which is then regulated on module. Goal was likely a more stable voltage at higher voltages with multiple modules.

    AMD Fixes Intermittent USB Connectivity Issues on 500 Series Chipsets, BIOS Update Arrives in April

    You people need to get real. I live in Silicon Valley and I had to do without toilet paper for months this past year and you guys are crying about waiting a couple months for a driver update.

    6900xt degrades below stock speeds within 4 Weeks?

    Simple fact is the OP moved the goal post several times. Fact is you can damage your gpu running Furmark. OP tried to take it back but we all saw him state he ran it overnight. Also running Furmark for an hour on a 750w psu probabably subjected the card to some very large ripple. Most of his...

    TSMC Could Build Six GigaFabs in Arizona

    Arizona has tons of solar power to offset the heat management costs. The other reason it will probably happen is the U.S. Government wants manufacturing here, for security reasons.

    6900xt degrades below stock speeds within 4 Weeks?

    i9 reaches 291w when pushed, plus 619w = OP is unrealistic.

    6900xt degrades below stock speeds within 4 Weeks?

    i9 10900F @5.33GHz and a 6900XT @ 2700MHz on a Be Quiet 750w. " Live by the sword die by the sword."

    CPU Stuck In C3% and will not move. Tried everything. Any advice?

    Check your ports, make sure there's no remote connection that's not supposed to be there.

    Intel Has Fixed its 7 nm Node, But Outsourcing is Still Going to Happen

    Intel 10nm is NOT equal to TSMC 7nm. It's fine for low power parts but is NOT suitable for large high clock chips. The yields are terrible. It also took Intel like 4 yrs to make that 10nm process even viable for notebooks.

    Switching to AMD - questions about a couple of ASRock boards

    I am using a B450 Steel Legend as we speak. Everything the other guy said about it is incorrect pretty much. He obviously got it before AMD got the Ageasa straightened out. Running right now with .950 SOC no problem. You don't need monster VRM's because these chips pull no more than 125w, same...

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

    Nvidia has pretty much forced AMD into these markets, as we know any success by them will be not be shared with others.... i.e. proprietary tech.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 with AMD Ryzen 3900XT vs. Intel Core i9-10900K

    You are delusional. You don't even make sense. Asside from Epic is like saying asside from Xeon. You have ThreadRipper for desktops. Dell and HP are all selling AMD equipped servers. Clock for clock AMD has HIGHER IPS and LOWER power draw than Intel. Intel's process allows for higher clocks...

    AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Driver Update, Boost & Performance

    Good start..... need some more bug fixes. First update is out already. You REALLY need to run AMD uninstaller(auto runs in safe mode) first. Performance gains for Navi, but nothing for 590. Well of course the 590 has been out for 4 yrs already seeing as how it is just a 480 on a better process...

    Are you having issues with Radeon Adrenalin 2020?

    This is not just another driver but whole new UI and tons off settings that were never available. You might have to tweak it a bit but once you get it setup it's great. I can adjust the VRAM voltage and timings on my RX 580. It is really a huge step forward in bringing all the controls quickly...

    2700X boosting beyond 4.3GHz on its own?

    In my case I believe I had cpuz and hwinfo running, along with an insider preview build of W10. Also on a new bios so I dont believe I had the HPET enabled and spread spectrum was probably on. That cpuz sub did load the cpu, but somehow captured the speed as it was returning to idle. I have not...

    Amidst Intel CPU Shortage Woes, Dell Reportedly Looking Into AMD Alternatives

    Oh yeah, but remember guys...... The Desktop is dead! 5 yrs ago all the experts were claiming the death of AMD and the whole desktop market was coming to an end. Now neither one can make enough chips. ! :toast:
