    Should the 5700xt be considered one of the greatest of all time?

    So they made a 40 CU part to compete at the high end with a small die? Yeah... No. Whether or not they tried to scale it up and it didn't work is not an argument of whether the 5700xt was a good card or not. The 5700xt was not meant to compete with a 2080.. they may have hoped they could...

    Removing unused leads from PCB

    I've done this before, I just unsolder the wires and solder back in only the ones I need... if you're really bored you can even shorten them up if they are to long. I've even changed out connectors when I didn't have enough of the right kind, just keep in mind the maximum power of your PSU...

    2700 on b550 won’t downclock w/ manual oc

    I was going to say, I'm surprised it even booted! I don't have an answer, just listening in. Did you try installing ryzen master to see if it's possible through there? I just don't know since it's not claimed support anyways.

    Intel Core i9-11900K "Rocket Lake" Boosts Up To 5.30 GHz, Say Rumored Specs

    +2% with a 5.3ghz boost frequency... What's this say about the purported IPC increase? I really expected Intel to start swinging back again by now, seems it'll be another year at least.

    Should the 5700xt be considered one of the greatest of all time?

    It would have been accurate to say AMD did not target the high end, this I agree with. They failed to target/compete with the high end of Nvidia. It is not fair to say a $400 card did not complete with an $800 card, they obviously weren't intended to compete. The fact that it was so close in...

    Should the 5700xt be considered one of the greatest of all time?

    It didn't fail to compete against high end Nvidia cards, that's like saying the 1060 failed to compete at the high end. That's a misleading argument, it was never intended to compete against the high end, it's price point supports this. That said, I do agree this isn't a 1080ti moment from...

    AMD patents GPU chiplet designs

    The only "supposed attempt" to date is the Ryzen CPU line... and it seems perfectly fine to me. MCM hasn't been done on GPU's, the only thing done on GPU's where literally 2 GPU's slapped onto one circuit board. They weren't really integrated, they were just sharing a single PCB. So, you...

    AMD patents GPU chiplet designs

    I'm sure it'll be just the way it's done now... they have multiple CU's on a single GPU with some method of handing out instructions on what to do for each one. If the CU's are spread on a single die or multiple, it's still the same concept, just slightly more latency, which is probably why...

    PSU with fan off mode

    I've got an EVGA model with eco mode... Annoying as crap as it sits at zero RPM and intermittently turns on and off. I'd rather if it just sat at a really low rpm and didn't cycle. Seems more of a gimmick than a useful feature. It does this when I'm not even stressing my PC. It's a 1000w PSU...

    Intel Core i9-11900K "Rocket Lake" Boosts Up To 5.30 GHz, Say Rumored Specs

    I mean, if performance is within a few percentage points and I can choose between 88watts and 200+watts (3700x vs 10700k), I will take the lower power one. Less fans, less cooling required, less heat in my room. If the 10700k was substantially faster for the same $, sure, but it's not. I...

    Suggest me a new mouse.

    I dunno, much cheaper than replacing my mouse every other year... And since I've got a family of 5 (with 6 desktops for when friends come over) it's closer to every 4 months. I paid like $10 for 8 buttons, resolder is like $10... And you don't have to r place the skates if you don't booger them...

    First 3D Printer... Software?

    I use emachineshop for my basic parts (very simple but limited to subtractive machining) and blender for more complex stuff. I tend to use octoprint (on a raspberry pi for remote printing) and matter control (to generate the gcode to copy to octo pi) for the actual printing.

    Anything customizable like the RAT series of mice?

    That's not old man, I still have my R.A.T. 1, although the left click has recently become intermittent. Trying to figure out how to get it open without breaking to put in some kaihli GM 4.0 buttons to give it some new life, although it's terrible for gaming (they put some input filtering on the...

    Suggest me a new mouse.

    I've had bad luck with all products/manufacturers that I've used. My logitech keyboard keys got brittle and all started breaking so that turned me off of them quickly. At least a mechanical switches going bad is common among manufacturers, but keys being brittle and just breaking... Crap...

    Suggest me a new mouse.

    I don't know, I've had similar issues with all brands as well. Had 3 razer mice develop similar issues as well as some other (mad catz R.A.T. 1, i'm looking at you, but I can't figure out how to open this without breaking it!). I did not toss them though, I upgraded the buttons to some Kailh...
