Re: Something's different...

by looking that the number of comments in the articles on the front page, you can clearly see that the regulars of TR are no longer around. :( This makes me sad to see. That's because the front page comment system is horrible and why bother commenting on most of it anyway? Agreed that the comment s...

Re: Goodbye TR, it was a great run

The lack of change on the front page (Articles from months ago). I think I am going to bounce as well. I was a lurker for a long time before I joined in 2007. I stopped visiting regularly in 2017 (life changes) and this past year I was only coming on once or twice a month. I decided to jump back on ...

Re: What shows are you recently watching?

I started watching "Legion" a couple month ago. I love that show and find it very entertaining. I binged through the first season in 3 days and when I started watching season 2, I got in 3 episodes and decided I had to go back and rewatch Season 1 again for things I missed because I starte...

I had seen this posted somewhere else and they already picked apart the screenshots to determine it was both an early ES chip (Not a B2 stepping chip) and the results were fake.

Re: Is windows 7 transferable to a new build?

I believe with Windows 7 OEM you can only upgrade the cpu. If you upgrade the mobo M$ might not allow activation on the new motherboard. But I could be wrong.

I wish we could see some real benchmark numbers. All of this hype around BD has started to give me the feeling that it isn't going to live up to the hype. The fact that AMD made changes to the release schedule for BD only a week before its official announcement is very upsetting. I was hoping that b...

Re: Bulldozer Delayed? Again?

I happen to come across a site referencing the same information. I couldn't find it on any legit sites so I was holding off until I read it from something reputable.

Edit: Hopefully the lack of any articles referring to it in the shortbread is a good sign that the information is false.
