    HTC VIVE FLOW: Android phone driven

    This is very interesting, the specs are not awe inspiring as in resolution refresh rate but form factor looks useful. Power by your phone meaning the headset is lightweight. Controllers? Powered by PC? Tracking?

    If you were able to obtain one, share any secrets and experiences, whenever your new toy or work horse arrives. Anyways first time I've ever used the shuffle at Newegg and what do you know, I was able to buy a Gigabyte 3080 Ti Eagle for MSRP, $1199. Which may not be all that good in the scheme...

    I started to have stability problems with the Ryzen 3960x which got worst over several days. The normal troubleshooting of switching out the 4 sticks of TridentZ 3466mhz 64gb (Hynix) to 4 sticks of TridentZ 3200 32gb (SamsungB), changing out video card, resetting bios, flashing bios twice...

    Sabrent Rocket M.2 2TB PCIe Gen4 QLC performance compared to 1TB PCIe Gen4 TLC

    Just picked up a Sabrent 2TB QLC drive for $280 on sale. Almost picked up two for Raid, which would probably make the PS5 not look so beastly. Then reality hit, I would probably never notice the difference other than a benchmark, unless someone here can explain why it would be a good option...

    AMD's Checkmate

    A fascinating rundown on next gen tech not only in consoles but next gen GPU's. What surprised me was he thinks the PS5 will beat the Xbox One X even with less CU's and has some very solid reasoning behind it. Also what to expect in next gen Nvidia GPU's. While a lot of it is conjecture it is...

    How does Ryzen 3900X game while at 100% CPU usage on all the cores? Over 100fps?

    Pretty damn good to my surprised and yes. Never had any processor able to do this, not even close, usually when CPU is at 100% everything else seems slow, stutters, skips etc. Not with Ryzen 3!. I started to play Wolfenstein Youngblood, never notice that I did not stopped mining Monero, which...

    Manually Overclocking Ryzen 2 3900X

    While I don't normally like to OC using Windows software, this is working out relatively well. Since some call the 3900X having one Chiplet and one Shitlet, OCing those differently may allow better performance overall. Anyways this is my first run using Ryzen Master to OC CCD0 to 4.5ghz and CCD1...

    DX12 Multi-GPU, live and well in Shadow Of The Tomb Raider

    Using two 1080 Ti's, the configuration is in signature. Just using the typical canned benchmark to see if scaling works with two GPU's. Stock clocks, CPU is actually 4.6ghz and is not reported correctly by benchmark. First test is all max settings with SMAA, 2x 1080 Ti'x at 3440x1440 resolution...

    Bought my first ASIC, INNOSILICON A8+ CryptoMaster Mining on Mining Pool Hub with a Cryptonight hashrate of 263kh/s. Each of my Vega FE's and Vega 64 can do a little over 2kh/s each Hash power wise, I am looking at 130 Vega 64s for this algorithm on this one ASIC at 480w, which is less power...

    7nm Radeon Instinct product for machine learning is running in our labs.

    Rather cool that a 7nm GPU is running or working: I wonder what changes to Vega was done besides 1/2 FP 64? Also if a Titan V type card or newer FE could come out of this?
