    Intel Core i9-11900K

    "SuperPi is one of the most popular benchmarks with overclockers and tweakers. It has been used in world-record competitions since forever. It is a purely single-threaded CPU test that calculates Pi to a large number of digits—32 million for our testing. Released in 1995" ......... Never change...

    AMD Announces the Radeon RX 6000 Series: Performance that Restores Competitiveness

    AMD... they have to get their drivers working proper. I had four Polaris cards (2 x 480, 2 x 580) and one major issue was always software problems. Game breaking bugs, crashes, black screens, you name it, all of it went away by switching to the green team. Again, AMD gfx gear always looks...

    AMD Launches AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Desktop Processors: The Fastest Gaming CPUs in the World

    So my AM4 Gigabyte X370 Gaming 5 is compatible with these Zen3's, or Zen2, or Zen+ even? Yeah, I thought so. The much vaunted AMD "platform longevity" in action. ... .. .

    ASUS GeForce RTX 3090 STRIX OC

    Ouuufffff! Might be worth getting to just see what it does to legacy bechmarks like 3DMark 01 and 03 combined with say a 10900k in 5.3-5.4GHz range on AIO. Non exotic way to grab some HWbot records. Oh yeah, new games, and all that other stuff in the review. Awesome tech! I guess... Not gonna...

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

    Do you remember back in very early 2000s when Microsoft was pushing .NET as clean, pure, rapid and easy to deploy framework to replace the "DLL hell!!!". Oh my! 20 years later and "DLL hell!!!" seems like paradise. .NET interframework version incompatibilities are infamous. Framework itself is...

    NVIDIA GeForce 456.38 WHQL Released: Ampere Support, SLI Finally Dead

    Hmm, I can force SLI profiles on games that have none, both with my 1070's, 980ti's, GTX 580's, 550TI's, etc etc, and still have amazing success and pretty amazing scaling. This seems like more of a corporate "does this help us make more money or less?" maneuvering and obsoletion by force than...

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

    I've been hearing about the multi threaded revolution on desktops "very soon!" for close to 20 years now. I will wait for that in the same way I will/did wait for "VR revolution!" or "PhysX revolution!" or "BIG NAVI!" or any other "just you wait! (insert rnd#-of-years) for the (whatever...

    NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang Says NVIDIA-Branded CPUs Could be Coming

    Can we get some x86 desktop options from nvidia!? Intel has stagnated a bit (14+++++ to infinity) and AMD is re-purposing server stuff for desktop and calling it a revolution (/r/AMD and Ryzen cult crowd will have a word to say about that I bet :rolleyes:). A nvidia desktop option would be nice...

    NVIDIA: GeForce RTX 3080 Reviews Delayed, RTX 3070 Availability Confirmed

    That seems like a legitimate estimate. We are looking at what... 750g of material? Probably nickel plated copper (vapor chamber layout?), non-exotic fans by all accounts, no bling of any kind other than some aluminum trimming (posibly silver painted plastic even). This is not some next-gen...

    NVIDIA: GeForce RTX 3080 Reviews Delayed, RTX 3070 Availability Confirmed

    Techwiz Youtuber nonsense and clickbait aside, as well as questionable "leaks", do we have official info on $150 cooler? I know a little bit about metallurgy and a bit about electronics, so where are the cost #s coming from? (/r/AMD doesn't qualify) Are the motor windings in those fans not...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Looks Huge When Installed

    Got my hands on a Cosmos II 25th Anniversary edition month ago, brand new in box, old stock. Haven't used it for anything yet. I have several old Cosmos 1000 cases but this thing seems much bigger. Might be a base for a 3090 SLI build... not that I play modern games anymore (do user made...

    VisInfo, Visual and Resource Light System Information Utility.

    Idea is to have something compact, portable, and resource friendly, yet compatible with say a single core P100MHz 440BX Win95 machine and all the way up to whatever is sitting on Walmart shelves, circa right now. Something that can fit on a 1.44MB storage envelope. That said, Win9x support for...

    VisInfo, Visual and Resource Light System Information Utility.

    I noticed that many are still using ancient Speccy that has outdated hardware database in order to dump/share their sysinfos, or worse an unholy combination of overly verbose cacophony of open windows of AIDA64/HwInfo/CPUZ+GPUZ stacked upon each other, all in a single screenshot in order to...
