To be fair, just brew it! reminded me that an explanation was given. Jeff requested his name be removed from those articles. However, It was supposed to say "TR Staff." I'd forgotten that part of the discussion from when it happened.

Man I miss TR right now. :(

I'm in the market for a new power supply and probably a motherboard for Zen 3 and I just realized I don't know where to look for the information I used to get right here. :(

Where are you guys going to get your info for hardware purchases these days, is there even any like TR left or is it scattered all over the web or just non-existant?

AnandTech by default.
For PSUs, Tom's Hardware is also an option. Bad site design but interesting PSU reviews.
Also JonnyGuru, though they don't review often these days.

Jeff requested his name be removed from the site. The prior discussion is in this thread somewhere, but forum search has been COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY BROKEN since the shift.

edit: Here we go. Thanks, Google!

Well, compared to January or February of 2021, maybe that was a great time. :-?
I still haven't gotten my hands on a Ryzen 9 5900X or 5950X CPU.

Been wondering when I can renew my somewhat not so well aging Vega 64 to, most likely a 6800xt. The Asus Tuf seems to trickle out a few at a time, but its hard since there aren't really many preorder lists available here, its first come first serve after they get in to the stores. But then, paying $1325 for a graphics card isnt my idea of fun. So guess ill have to run the Vega 64 into the ground.

Yeah, pricing for GPUs are just ridiculous right now. Crypto will eventually crash I guess, then there will be GPUs everywhere. But until then...

TR Publishing tried to charge me for subscription again today, like clockwork same as last year. ****, no answer on any email, the phone numbers seems to go to nowhere.

Dude, I think I'd get new cards/new number on the account they are charging, that's such BS.

Yeah, that is pretty much what my bank said. They're sending me a new card and disputing the charge, I don't expect TR to get any money.
