    Which Gaming monitor? LG 42 C2? AW3423? Or AW3821?

    Had a good look at the 42 and 48 last week and if your desk isn't 10k, the 42 is great. 48 or 55 is tempting as can be used for entertainment down the line and also further from desk so my sound stage imaging is less affected. The AW is great but has its downsides. The input lag is high enough...

    Is this peak idiocy in case designs?

    It's quite unique. Looks like the inspiration for it came from the McLaren F1 of hifi speakers.. B&W Nautilus Glass side panels can eat a dick. Always paranoid breaking them and they get finger prints and dust shows so easily.

    Rumors of ARC's cancellation...

    Yeah was going to say, this isn't the first time they canned a card/GPU early. staknhalo to be fair, AMD actually wasn't totally wrong on Volta, if you consider that they never released a consumer product line.

    eVGA Supernova 16OOw P+ $199

    This is the key factor here IMO (assuming good psu quality), glad to see someone thinking that way.

    Boost wireless - extender vs antenna

    Raise the AP up to ceiling height. Do a site survey at the wall where it drops out. Switch to clearest channel. If this doesn't work then slap a cantenna together, wokfi or some off shelf ptp dish based antennae and you'll be fine at that distance. Literally lifting AP up and aligning it and...

    How well would a vintage Lian Li case like this deal with modern hardware?

    Yeah lot of old cases had hose holes. OP: I run a 20 year old case with modern hardware. The main limitation as pointed out is fans/airflow. Water cool, dremel or choose a case with large mesh/open rear and you can sort of fudge it. I just stuck 2x180mm fans loose inside and luckily the front...

    AMD GPU Roadmap: RDNA 3 With 5nm GPU Chiplets Coming This Year

    Was same with 7nm. Chiplets are tiny with high yield, it'll be ok.

    Do you think it is worth spending $60 about to upgrade old laptops with SSD drives instead of Hard Drives ?

    Yes it's the best possible thing you can do if you have enough ram.

    High framerate and OLED

    Interface is a big part of it but yes fpga and associated hardware needed to drive panel also is an issue. C2 also does 138hz OC, same guts.

    High framerate and OLED

    In case of 4k it's actually the interfaces that are the limitation unless you want 6bit colour..

    I I'm coming from skylake so I get the same sort of jump now, enjoy the jump when you get there. Chiplets are going to be epic for gpus this year.

    New EU rule will require all phones and electronics to use a standard charger

    Good, the amount of times not having 'insert correct apple/USB variant' here has caused issues before, makes this welcome.

    How can you still use your old 128 and 256 GB SSD drives?

    Use my old ocZv3 for video editing output and temp workspaces etc. Also has os backup boot.

    AMD announces Ryzen 7000 Zen 4 CPUs Roadmap update from shareholder meeting. A slightly obfuscated one in terms of time, but better than none. New uarch coming in 2024, could be some exciting jumps there - let the...
