    Battlefield V with RTX Initial Tests: Performance Halved

    I wont knock Nvidia for some brand new tech being not perfect. There's a lot to hate about Nvidia but new tech is not one of them. Push the envelope Nvidia, never stop. Please lower your prices............ we all can't afford 1k GPUs. and all the other BS you do........

    Intel Could Unveil its Graphics Card at 2019 CES

    I don't consider this fast. Like has been said Intel did attempt this before so they know what's involved. Not to mention they have been making iGPUs forever, there's not much of a leap from that to a dedicated GPU. With all their different products I would assume they have nearly everything...

    Artic Silver, or something else....??

    Yeah this is true, where you live matters. Here in Canada Prolimatech's stuff is difficult to get. On Newegg Canada a 5G tube of PK1 is $36 with $15 shipping. A 20G tube of MX-4 is (regular price, it's on sale $5 off atm) $25 with $6 shipping. So yeah where I live there's no point in getting the...

    Artic Silver, or something else....??

    I have no idea if drying out changes thermal resistance of the paste or not, I am not a chemist and neither are you (afaik). So I wont comment on it since I don't know. What I will say is I wouldn't buy a TIM that dries out a lot. Move your PC one time and the possibility of the heatsink to...

    Artic Silver, or something else....??

    Yep, I would say go for whatever you can find on sale as long as it's a well known brand. I would say Noctua's paste is great top tier performer and top tier price same goes with Prolimatech's stuff. MX-4 is a great paste for a middle of the ground price and AC Ceramique as the bulk order :p I...

    Faulty GPU in brand new laptop?

    You repasted a laptop CPU with liquid metal? That's risky. Not sure if Kryonaut is electrically conductive but I know liquid metal is. Yeah reopen the laptopand doub check everything, if it's all good I would check the GPU and CPU to see if there's been a short.

    beyerdynamic Announces the Aventho Wired Heaphones

    lol I would love to see the headphone hit 10hz at audible levels without having to increase levels to max... some bs on freq for headphones these days. My Planar Magnetic headphones manage to reach 25hz and still be audible at normal volumes, I found that to be astounding. My Superlux says it...

    AMD Updates Warranty Policy on AMD Processors and Aftermarket CPU Coolers

    Probably back when they released bulldozer. TDP and heat was an issue and they needed people to use proper cooling lol. Their heatsinks were only ever ok it's the fans that were insane lol. But yeah this could have been a nightmare for PR but a nice quick change. Nice to see.

    Anime Nation

    Man, some great anime starting again. SAO, Steins Gate 0, Food Wars, My Hero Academia. More coming soon like Attack on Titan, another SAO, Fairy Tail. Oh man, at least for me this is a great year for anime. If One Punch Man arrives this year and more DBS I might just cry :P

    NVIDIA P102-100 Cryptomining Graphic Card Surfaces

    You only need the memory amount to fit the dag size which increases in size but very slowly. It's almost exclusively bandwidth and latency of VRAM that increases the performance of ETH mining. It's why people love Samsung RAM on their 1070s, the overclockability is immense giving you more...

There's no game with the number of licensed cars or the ability to win credits to upgrade parts and customize your vehicles on the PC until Forza 7. GoG has...

    Who has TPU´s oldest pc still in use for daily task?

    Parent's daily driver is a Q8200, 4GB RAM and a GTX 460 SE. My brother still uses an AMD Phenom II X6 as well as my friend. My 2500K is getting there in age (EDIT: Just checked Newegg, I bought my 2500K Jan 4th 2012, so it's over 6 years old). Probably wont upgrade until DDR4 comes down in price.

    The "Where to Get a Good Deal On A GPU" Thread

    The GeForce store's prices are good I just don't know if they ever go in stock and they're all blower style coolers. https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/products/10series/geforce-store/ Always check the used market too some people still sell their GPUs at decent prices.

    I redesigned GPU-Z using the Fluent Design Language

    Your design has improved by quite a bit. I am really liking the newest dark theme. I still don't like the large text for the tabs though.
