    Macbook Pro with 5600M experiences: Future-proofing before ARM comes?

    With the news of the ARM switch coming I am in an interesting position. With the release of the 5600M now available and a MUCH better option than the 5500M I am very solid to pick one up soon. Before the "you can get more for less" here is what I can address: I am a designer by trade and...

    Dust off your bookmarks, help with an x58 overclock!

    So I magically came into possession of a new 1080 founders and I am THRILLED! (replacing my 780ti in all its glory) However, I suspect my i7 950 is a little bottlenecking in some of the games in keeping me from clicking everything over to ultra and watching the beauty. So I decided in the...

    I cannot seem to find a simple answer to this question! Anyway. So I found in my next display search, some talk brewing over whether a monitor is a true 8-bit vs 10-bit.
