    EVGA GTX 1070 Ti FTW2 iCX 8 GB

    It draws a whopping 15w over stock. I would say it is still a good value considering the good temps, low noise, and great overclocking. As for the 1070ti, it is clear that this card makes more sense to purchase than the 1080. O/c vs O/c, the 1070ti is a match to the 1080 it seems and costs a...

    Mozilla Announces Firefox Quantum Web-browser

    Love it! My main pc only has 8 gb ram so i needed the extra room. I was often over 80% memory utilization with normal use before.

    Raijintek is PC Building Simulator's Newest Hardware Partner

    Aside from building the PC, will you actually be able to USE the PC in PC Simulator? Perhaps you could download PC Simulator on the virtual PC that you built INSIDE of the PC Simulator program.

    Intel Announces "Coffee Lake" + AMD "Vega" Multi-chip Modules

    I feel like this was a message from Intel to Nvidia "you guys are dicks and we don't necessarily need you"

    Intel Core i7 8700K Reportedly Reaches 4.8 GHz Easily, 5 GHz+ Requires Delid

    Agreed! Not sure why it was brought up except to start a flame war. Everyone knew it would be TIM already.

    It's for those that don't need extreme CPU power, but want extreme I/O capability.

    Team Group T-Force Delta RGB 2x 8 GB DDR4

    $190 for 3000 mhz? No thanks. Please start testing Ram in a Ryzen system where the speed might make a performance difference.

    AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 8 GB

    Very nice review, but I don't understand the 'Highly Recommended' part. Zero reason to get this over a GTX 1080: Same Performance, louder, hotter, more power consumption, and likely VERY limited O/C. The Vega 56 performed much better.

    AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 8 GB

    Not bad. Slightly better than a 1070 at 2k and right between a 1070 and 1080 at 4k. Civ 6 definitely needs driver support as Vega loses to a Fury X inn that title.

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X Overclocked to 4.1 GHz With Liquid Cooling

    As if a person who buys a 16 core processor cares about waiting a couple extra seconds for a single thread app. 18 core SKLx at 4.0 ghz? Not likely. There is a reason they dropped thr clocks so much for the 7820x. Even still, the 7980xe is twice as much.

    Intel Core i3-8300 Detailed - First Quad-Core i3

    In most productivity benchmarks I have seen, the 7700k was 50% faster or so than the 7600k. The 8600k should be 50% faster than the 7600k as well.

    8 threads at 4.0 ghz. So basically an i7 7800!

    AMD's Bristol Ridge APUs Released for the AM4 Platform in Retail Channels

    These will be very fun to tinker around with until Raven Ridge releases. I had a lot of fun overclocking the A10-7860k and these should be even better with DDR4. By no means a powerhouse, but still faster than 90% of laptops out there.

    Benchmarks Find Intel Core i7-7700K Better Than i7-7800X for Gaming

    You are still not getting it. Even overclocked to 4.7 ghz, the 7800x would lose to the 7700k at STOCK clocks (4.2-4.5 ghz) For games that were cpu limited, the 7700k crushed the 7800x. So much so, that the author suggested the 7800x might be at Ryzen 7 levels for gaming. So, you have 7800x...

    Benchmarks Find Intel Core i7-7700K Better Than i7-7800X for Gaming

    Yep, plenty of people here are good at being snarky before taking the time to read... The only reason the difference wasn't higher o/c to o/c was that many games were already hitting fps limits. When they were not, the differences were HUGE for 200 mhz.

    Benchmarks Find Intel Core i7-7700K Better Than i7-7800X for Gaming

    The 7800x might still beat the 1800x in other benches buy those are not in the same price bracket. Especially when comparing the 1700/1700x cpus. AMD is also guilty of taking a 'step back' with there insane Vega power consumption.

    Liquid-cooled AMD Radeon Pro Vega Frontier Edition Power Draw Tested

    440 watts at the card! That is pathetic, AMD. What kind of PSU is needed for crossfire and an O/c 1700x - 1200 watts?? Curious to see how that would compare to Fury X trifire in performance and power usage....

    Benchmarks Find Intel Core i7-7700K Better Than i7-7800X for Gaming

    With the 8700k coming out, the 7800x joins the 7740x and 7640x as completely useless Skylake-x products. Perhaps they will show a SLI benchmarks where the extra pci-e lanes of skylake-x will offset the dismal gaming performance, but I won't hold my breath.

    Intel to Launch Multiple Six-core CPUs on Coffee Lake Architecture, i5 Lineup

    Welp, we don't even know cpu/mb prices for the coffee 6-core, o/c ability, etc so maybe we can think before making a blind statement. I have a feeling you speak before thinking as well.... No doubt Cofee 6-core will be better at gaming than Skylake-x 6 core. That chip may actually lose to...

    Benchmarks Find Intel Core i7-7700K Better Than i7-7800X for Gaming

    "I triple checked the numbers though and they are indeed accurate. Interestingly this is reminiscent of what we saw when comparing the, the 8-core Ryzen 7 1800X for example was much much slower than the 7700K. In fact, given what I'm seeing here, the 1800X might actually be faster than the...
