Re: Radeon VII Goes to an ELO Concert!

Re: AMD Navi / RDNA Topic

With the rumor of the Nvidia Super RTX gpu's release, on July 2. and AMD's on July 7.
AMD may have to re-adjust the sale price of these cards, even before their official release.
This competition is great stuff!

Re: Hitching problem on the desktop and games

Unfortunately your board doesn't have a second x4 slot anywhere so you can't move the SSD without incurring a big performance penalty. What do you have for fans in your Define Mini? The Newegg listing shows a 120-mm fan in front as an intake and another in the back as exhaust. Are they both connect...

If you have money to burn put together some tweaking purpose system to experiment with cpu/gpu overclocking ideally, and compete in a few of the major benchmarks. Not a production system. Overclocking has some thrill and Adrenalin into it for sure. Sure it has potential hazard's but I generally feel...

Re: ASUS ROG-CROSSHAIR-VI-HERO Bios Version 3502- Spectre fix?

DancinJack you are correct I applied the new 3502 BIOS, and the InSpectre tool still says its not fixed.
I do get slightly better memory speeds now with an overclock.
But I guess we can just monitor the situation.

Thank you for replying!
It is a dual BIOS card. And I hope It arrives with the latest bios.
I do have a stable system for the rest of the computer, and attached to a UPS.
The card should arrive by Tuesday or Wednesday next week.
I will keep updating the progress.
