    Pixel 6 / Pixel 6 Pro

    5a isn’t available thru brick and mortar retailers so the base 6 will have to be the go to for anyone like me that needs a replacement phone that day. I opted to scour Craigslist for whatever new under $300 thing I could get thru tmw on today.

    Pixel 6 / Pixel 6 Pro

    Well, except for the fact my phone constantly vibrates and it won't detect it's SIM android 12 rules. I guell I'll rollback and go to Best buy to play with the demo Pixel 6 options.

    Pixel 5A

    I'll install android 12 on my 3a XL tmw and see how that goes. I'm ok slumming with the phone poors bc my media consumption happens on my iPad. I don't need my entire mobile experience to be phone centric

    Pixel 5A

    I'll wait until I see deals in Dec. Milk the last update and pay off the last few months of my 3a XL. Was waiting to see if there were any early adopter issues.

    AMD pushes back on Tiger Lake with Cezanne mobile CPUs

    My use case still leans towards a desktop is a build bot or remote worker desktop target. Still waiting to see workstation class ryzen laptops with multi name drives, higher ram density, gpu, cooling system that'll maintain long run workloads without excessive throttling

    Pixel 5A

    My brief HTC One ownership makes me wary of heat related component failure. I'll just watch reports from early owners. Not in a rush to pay off the last 4 months of our 3a XLs I did turn off the $/5 month damage coverage bc at this pt, whatever.

    The Snapdragon phone

    Features have hardware impact on performance. Getting regular monthly OS updates is a major quality of life enhancement. There’s a reason why a lot of us own pixels, many were full cycle Nexus owners. Getting stuck for months or longer with a bad update leaves a bad taste in the mouth.

    Pixel 5A

    I got off Spigen cases bc that plastic band on whatever model I had been buying for 3-4 phones annoyed me. Got onto Caselogic cases for the Pixels and no random broken plastic.

    Pixel 5A

    4a owners that have to pay off their handset don't have a massive chipset or screen upgrade to tip them to go thru paying off their phone early. Depending on carrier, it can be a pain.

    Pixel 5A

    That's something to think about today. I think when I checked value with my previous phone they weren't offering much.

    Pixel 5A

    My ex had either a bad anker cable or charging block fry the charging module on her pixel xl. Bubbled face, melted component, etc. I became a real stickler about not buying whatever cheapest charging combo for her to leave a copy everywhere she went after I had it fixed.

    Pixel 5A

    That's exactly what I did with my ex re: phone sizing. Also this whole debate about insurance boils down to it's a waste until you turn it off and crack a screen or toast a charging port module.

    Pixel 5A

    I'm on FI, so I got the 3 diff subscription option scheme today. I guess I could wrap up the year of security only updates and roll with my 3a until pixel 6a launches this time next year. Let's see if my experience degrades after OD updates halt or not like all my other Nexus and Pixel phones.

    3200 DDR4 Doesn't run above 2933 and resets to 2133

    I've run 4x16gb Corsair 3200 lpx on a 1700 and 2600 at xmp on a junk ASRock b450 board. This was right before Win10 18xx Update bios + chipset drivers and try again.

    I've had the same thought. I respect the idea of someone making $ scalping a ticket more than scalping a gpu. https://bocanewsnow.com/2021/06/03/hundreds-line-up-at-boca-raton-best-buy-for-rtx-3080-graphics-card/

    3080Ti Review: Mostly a Neutered 3090

    3090 owners are starting to up their asking $ to match or exceed 3080ti. At this point I'm going to bow out until the market contracts. I want to buy at the bottom for a non essential workflow like gaming, not buy a used car worth of value to play games on a pc.

    That was my immediate reaction. OP is blasting comments as fast as they can but the overarching FU sentiment is there. I can only imagine the eBay message reporting queue is full of sunshine, puppies, and prayers.

    EVGA is giving 24 hour priority queue access to Elite members

    You'd think someone would be learning how WAFs work, add rulesets to augment anti-botting strategies, etc. E-commerce all of the sudden has some learning moments for people that want to dip a toe into more lucrative work.

    Gigabyte 3080 Thermal Pads are Garbage

    I'm thinking longevity isn't so much a design bullet pt in light of current environment. Would you want 30x0 mined on gpus living 3+ years at screwed up miner dump used prices pulling down the next few gens MSRP? The gpus were designed for a narrow use case. Why waste resources supporting...

    What is your "coping" strategy for the time until you can get a latest-model Nvidia/AMD GPU?

    I cope by enjoying free Cod weeks. I've been really enjoying the zombie Outbreak mode. There's something soothing about playing bots and not worrying about hackers or kids rocking 300fps rigs.

    What is your "coping" strategy for the time until you can get a latest-model Nvidia/AMD GPU?

    2022 you buy a 4060ti for msrp. Let the miners drown in 30x0 gpus. Hopefully it scales up to just under a 2080ti equivalent performance.

    Worth water cooling GPU and CPU for more FPS?

    Frame pacing improvements on a BR isn’t something anyone should throw $ at. Various BRs I play have had noticeable problem areas in map updates that either tanked FPS, or lagged frame pacing. Various fixes would help until the next major map update started the FPS circus all over again.

    What is your "coping" strategy for the time until you can get a latest-model Nvidia/AMD GPU?

    2080 super saturates a 1440p 165hz panel at competitive FPS graphics settings just fine. 2060 I’d turn on dlss None of the games I play benefit me if I crank the graphics settings up.
