    PC restarts once or twice before POSTing with default RAM speed and fluctuating CPU Clocks & CPU Voltages

    I have a 3800X and an ASUS X470 Crosshair VII and I recently bought a 4x8GB RAM kit and I had the double reboot and it would also default back to stock RAM speed. You need to disable XMP and bump the speed a step at a time in the memory speed drop down menu in BIOS (if available in your board...

    Intel Core i5-11600K

    The point is, contrary to Wizzard's statement, AMD has not raised the MSRP price as far as I can find, but etailers/retailers have, as in the case of the 5600X for sale on Amazon for $100 more than MSRP. Thus, his comment should have been more along the lines of saying "IMHO the 11600 is a...

    Microcenter still lists 5600X for $299 in store.

    Intel Core i5-11600K

    Further evidence why Intel dropped the ball with Rocket Lake. "If we assume that you can find both the Ryzen 9 5900X and Core i9-11900K close to recommended pricing, Intel really missed the mark with the 11900K's suggested pricing. As the saying goes, there are no bad products, just bad...

    Intel Core i5-11600K

    Really W1zzard? Almost $100 less than 5600X? Somebody have sour grapes about a solid 6 core retailing for $299 MSRP? I don't see jacked up prices, I see retailers raising prices due to demand. AMD RYZEN™ 5 5600X Processor AMD.com AMD Ryzen™ 5 5600X Processor Graphics Model: Discrete Graphics...

    Valid point if you are only wanting to do a DIY build versus buying an OEM computer.

    Intel Core i9-11900K

    Not true, the Ryzen 4000 series APUs and newer 5000 series APUs have more powerful integrated graphics than Intel, however, if you buy an non APU chip from AMD then you are out of luck for GPU. APUs are good enough to play PUBG type games at lower detail levels for reasonable frame rates.

    Intel Core i9-11900K

    Wow, the latest and greatest from Intel ends up in the middle or upper echelon of benchmarks, and in some cases getting decimated by AMD 5000 series, I have not seen such a thing in a long time! I would be afraid of tripping my main 150 amp breaker trying to run that scorching hot CPU! The...

    Intel Launches 11th Gen Core "Rocket Lake": Unmatched Overclocking and Gaming Performance

    When you can buy two AMD desktops for the price of one Intel, it is a can be a no brainer for some businesses. Marketing can talk up onboard graphics for DOTA, Fortnight, etc. for the very casual gamer and AMD lays the smackdown on Intel in this category...

    First NVIDIA Palit CMP 30HX Mining GPU Available at a Tentative $723

    I guess nvidia doesn't want to sell the mining only cards too badly given that rather high price... They would be better off offering them for the MSRP of the normal card they represent. You are not going to break even anytime soon with that hashrate and at that price.

    Intel Launches 11th Gen Core "Rocket Lake": Unmatched Overclocking and Gaming Performance

    AMD was a serious competitor to Intel back in the day, but they made some poor choices around 15-20 ago that lead to Intel growing a lot with the Core architecture. AMD is not in the junior leagues, they are churning out competitive and superior products. They haven’t recaptured the market share...

    Intel Launches 11th Gen Core "Rocket Lake": Unmatched Overclocking and Gaming Performance

    Ugh, that is kind of how you sounded with the “I don’t support monopolies but I’m buying from the monopolistic company anyway because they are offer a product that is priced closer to what I am willing to pay” response earlier. I am attempting to help others who seem to lack any sense of how...

    Intel Launches 11th Gen Core "Rocket Lake": Unmatched Overclocking and Gaming Performance

    About $25 isn’t going to buy you much more of anything else. However, if that is what you can afford then so be thankful for AMD becoming competitive with Inte again and ultimately leading to that CPU being offered for the price that it is. We’re it not for Ryzen, that CPU would be $200 or more...

    Intel Launches 11th Gen Core "Rocket Lake": Unmatched Overclocking and Gaming Performance

    Oh my goodness, stop the presses, breaking news, the AMD 3600 CPU is an apocalyptic 6% slower than the mighty Intel i5-10400! I guess you can't remember that Intel was charging premium prices a few years ago, were you complaining then as well?

    Intel Launches 11th Gen Core "Rocket Lake": Unmatched Overclocking and Gaming Performance

    Is the 3600 a capable CPU, yes. Does it cost a little more than the 10400, yes. Is it a gaming king with framerates, no. Is it a capable gaming CPU, yes. You guys have short memories.... You forget what Intel was doing not all that long ago where they were the more expensive brand and now that...

    Intel Launches 11th Gen Core "Rocket Lake": Unmatched Overclocking and Gaming Performance

    Perhaps, but they are far from that point, it took Intel around 6-10 years to rest on their laurels and become slothful. Just because your understanding of business is lacking doesn’t mean I am defending evil corporations. I have been around long enough to have seen that businesses have to make...

    Intel Launches 11th Gen Core "Rocket Lake": Unmatched Overclocking and Gaming Performance

    That wasn't the case for many years, not until Zen changed the landscape. I personally don't think that AMD is overcharging for the performance. They have a solid, high performance product, they deserve to charge more for that product. Now, market conditions may dictate differently at times, but...

    Intel Launches 11th Gen Core "Rocket Lake": Unmatched Overclocking and Gaming Performance

    Who doesn't want more for their money? Innovating and designing CPUs isn't the easiest task in the world and as transistors get smaller and smaller the cost goes up for the manufacturing equipment to make those itty bitty transistors. Cost will naturally increase as well to cover the R&D and...

    Intel Launches 11th Gen Core "Rocket Lake": Unmatched Overclocking and Gaming Performance

    They are executing on their roadmaps for Enterprise, desktop, and mobile parts. They are firing on all cylinders, for how long is anyone's guess. If you want cheaper and still capable CPUs you can buy last gen parts. I have a 2600x that is light years better than the Athena core Athlon 435...

    Intel Launches 11th Gen Core "Rocket Lake": Unmatched Overclocking and Gaming Performance

    Intel has charged a premium for premium performance for a number of years, it's AMD's turn to make some extra money like Intel did with a superior product.

    Intel Launches 11th Gen Core "Rocket Lake": Unmatched Overclocking and Gaming Performance

    I think the title should end with "unmatched heat and performance that finally catches up to our main competitor who has innovated and past us by at plaid speed." You want to play games and cook dinner?! Look no further than our hot, hot, hot CPUs that can do it all, dinner and gaming at the...

    AMD Curve Optimizer any guides / experience

    Your comprehension of how electricity works is sorely lacking. 1.5 volts is not an issue for CPU. Do high voltage transmission lines burn up carrying 200,000 volts? No, with an exception, when an object gets close enough that electrons jump from transmission line to grounded object, then...

    NVIDIA Announces New CMP Series Specifically Designed for Cryptocurrency Mining; Caps Mining Performance on RTX 3060

    *sigh* So tired of misinformed individuals such as yourself. Did you forget about compression algorithms that reduce memory needed? "For several generations now, NVIDIA GPUs have had a lossless memory compression technique that reduces memory bandwidth requirements. In a nutshell, the GPU will...
