Re: Core i9 vs. The Threadripper Preview

I just don't see how Intel can keep pricing the X/E series stuff as high as they used to anymore. Hoping there are at least small price cuts with the new series of stuff. I really want a 7820X.

Re: DYMT: Imi's Legacy

I didn't even know they had made a movie out of Cell. Stephen King adaptations have been pretty hit-or-miss. I'm hoping the upcoming Dark Tower movies don't fall into the same trap. It will. Just don't go into it expecting the books. If you do, there is virtually no situation in which you wouldn't ...

Re: PS4 Future

Yeah, I doubt you'll see 4K BR support for at least another few years. Xbone Scorpio does/will support 4K UHD only with the upcoming console so at least there's that. Any possibility you'd want to migrate to MS?

Re: Looks like RyZen got caught cheating on benchmarks

I have been using CPU-Z/CPUID since my Socket A days 15 years ago and I wasn't even aware there was a benchmark. I thought it was just an overclock validation and test-bench stress tool. So, I bother looking at the bench tab and see there is in fact a benchmark in there now. How long has that been ...

Re: 1080Ti roundups

I get it man, I do. I suspect, since these cards are just trickling out, you'll have to wait a while if you want a round-up. A few of the criteria you are looking for though can definitely be taken care of just checking the specs (ports/size). While you obviously can't tell default fan curve without...

Re: 1080Ti roundups

Wait a second, are you pairing this with your 1920x1200 monitor(s)?

Chances are you wouldn't even be able to tell the difference, in practice, between MOST of these cards. I'd get whatever has good clocks, good brand, and the best (for me) warranty.

Re: Coffee Lake 6 core, this August with z370 chipsets?

I think Ryzen is an outdated design model to not include an IGP at all, but at least it seems to have made Intel shift some focus away from that area. Let's face it, Intel IGP has been more than adequate for non-dGPU machines since.....Ivy Bridge? We don't need half the die area dedicated to IGP, g...

The i5 during Sandybridge was the best gaming chip. The i5 outperformed the i7 thanks to the HT performing terrible in gaming titles.
