    AMD-hired Agency in South Korea Teases AMD Ryzen 7 3700X, Ryzen 5 3600X

    Sure, because AMD will sit still for the next two years :rolleyes: Oh, and Intel is with a capital letter.

    Thanks, good review.

    Ryzen 3000 Leaks

    The most interesting thing (if the video is accurate) is that the CCXs are replaced by chiplets and these come in 3 flavours: 4,6 and 8 cores.

    Ryzen 3000 Leaks

    I can't believe we're talking 6 core entry level and 12 core mid range :) It's not even 2 years, more like 22 months, since Zen launched. Remember early 2017? That's right, that's when a 4 core was mid range and the same with HT enabled was high end...

    AMD 3rd Generation Ryzen Confirmed for Computex 2019

    My money is on 2x(2x4) Do you know something we plebs don't?

    Comparative Linux Gaming Benchmarks

    Yeah, Microsoft went rolling with Windows 10 but they don't have the benefit of a Unix architecture. Imagine how Arch would be beautifully perfect with the resources of Redmond :love:

    NVIDIA TITAN RTX Graphics Card Launching Soon

    Games ooze with atmosphere precisely because they're not "realistic" (in the sense that we can easily tell it's a game and not a movie with flesh and bone actors). When we'll be unable to tell the difference the magic will be gone.

    internet security is it worth to buy?

    Yes, but because it's sandboxed the subtitles will be erased on close (but you can save them manually). The sandbox won't allow that (if it's properly configured). The drag n drop will be your action, and you're supposed to be sure that the file is safe before unsandbox it. dunno, do your home work.

    internet security is it worth to buy?

    Sandboxed folders work differently from sandboxed programs (but both can be configured granularly). Ex. you download a video, movie, to a forced sandboxed folder. When you click the video the media player will run sandboxed too. when you close the media player (and thus close the sandbox) the...

    internet security is it worth to buy?

    That's one of what I called "subtleties". For ex. if you click on a torrent link while your browser is sandboxed your torrent client will open sandboxed and the downloads folder will be sandboxed too. This will pose problems because if you close the browser everything inside that sandboxed will...

    MSI Intros GeForce RTX 2070 Ventus Graphics Card

    Two 100mm fans on a 22.6 cm long card is something I'd like to see more often; instead of those 3 fan monstrosities.

    internet security is it worth to buy?

    You can browse always sandboxed and it'll only take one click every time you want something, a downloaded file for ex., out of the sandbox. Same with other sandboxed apps like the e-mail client, torrent client, etc. But, you will have to go thoroughly through the settings and that's a steep...

    That's not how it works :rolleyes:

    internet security is it worth to buy?

    Sandboxie, properly configured and used, is bullet proof and very light. It's not your usual anti virus though, which is designed for the average Joe; but it's worth the learning curve.

    HANNspree Launches HQ272PQD Monitor: 27" HS-IPS, QHD, Quantum Dot, 60 Hz, 5 ms

    This isn't a gaming monitor so I understand the choice of 60 Hz. What I don't understand is the obligation of jumping from 60 Hz straight to 144 Hz :mad: personally I'd be satisfied with an all-purpose 90 Hz, IPS, x1440 monitor. But it seems that there are prosumers (whatever that means) and...

    14nm 6th Time Over: Intel Readies 10-core "Comet Lake" Die to Preempt "Zen 2" AM4

    Intel, as things are, can not pre empt AMD; they're playing defensive.

    AMD 8-core Ryzen APU to Power Sony Playstation 5, Says the Rumor Mill

    True. But why Nvidia's RTX don't have a "remarkably tough launch" when they too bring a technology that is not, definitely not, ready for prime time? because the tech press is too lenient? The consumer buys imbecility?

    3770K bottlenecking Vega64?

    Of course it is. Anything including and after Sandy Bridge is perfectly valid today. And if you have a Sandy Bridge-E like the six core 3930K you're good for some time yet.

    3770K bottlenecking Vega64?

    I find it hard to believe system RAM speed affects game FPS. The GPU works in real time with the VRAM, not the system's; the latter only feeds the VRAM with data. Under specific scenarios (APUs that use system RAM, Ryzen chips that have performance tied up with system RAM) or under specific...

    David Wang From AMD Confirms That There Will Eventually Be an Answer to DirectX Raytracing

    The (too) early jump to ray tracing from Nvidia can play into AMD's hands, if they release a high end, purely rasterization, GPU soon at an affordable price.

    Good review, as usual, but the white on white (mouse/background) of the photos makes it difficult to evaluate the shape and size.
