    Netflix raises prices on standard and premium plans

    show was great.. then some one started tripping on acid when they made the final episode.. made absolutely no sense. we all knew it was going to at some point anyways.. problem is people have no self control and allowed it to happen. i only pay for 2 streaming services and it's going to stay...

    Netflix raises prices on standard and premium plans

    same boat as you, never had any intention of watching that movie so it was never going to effect whether or not a cancelled.. that being said i agree that it's over blown given there were far worse child exploitations shows on regular tv that no one has said a damn thing about. i'll probably...

    Starlink Public Beta About to Happen?!?!

    unlikely, most areas intentionally limit dialup to 33.6k and have been for 20+ years because they don't want to spend the money upgrading it.

    [TechSpot] Quad 3090 tested in a workstation

    that was the whole point of the 3090.. they were losing sales of their workstation cards to the RTX titan.. RTX titan at 3k dollars was a whole lot easier to sell to accounting than an RTX 6000 or 8000. :P

    IHS lapping, is it worth it?

    terrible comparison given how neutered intel kept their stock clocks on their cpu's up until the 10k series thus making IHS lapping/liquid metal useful. on AMD however there is no advantage to it unless you're doing sub ambient temps.

    Department of Justice Files Antitrust Lawsuit Against Google

    on the surface maybe, but the difference with them shoving explorer down everyones throats back then was that they were also trying to force a web standard change that made netscape and other browser incompatible. edge is the same shit as chrome with their own UI so it's a whole different thing..

    Price cuts after 11/05/20?

    except they only cut those prices when there was no availability and then immediately released the 9900KS for more than the 9900K was even though it was impossible to buy a normal 9900K., then all of a sudden they announce the price drop for the 9980XE only for there to be no available stock in...

    Mom's PC... buy b450 + 3400G now? or wait for 5000g?

    even at 4k120hz she's never going to know the difference and movies/tv shows will never be 120fps. if she has been using a llano cpu for this long a 3400g and even 3200g would be an insane upgrade. hell you could probably throw a 2200 or 2400g in there and it would be a night and day difference...

    Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020

    nvm i retract what i wrote, was still reading through that thread, completely different from what i was thinking.. figured it was similar to what ortho does in xp but it's just replacing the building models which makes sense that googles is better since it's 3rd party provided imagery and not AI...

    Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020

    it's very region based, some of the image sets from google are better than bing and some are worse, it's not 100% one or the other. even in XP11 i have some areas that are stitched together using map images from 3-4 different sources. royal pain in the arse to do but looks insanely better.

    ASUS ROG Strix B550-A Gaming vs. TUF Gaming X570-Plus (Wi-Fi)

    the 550a and 550f are pretty much the same board, just different colors. as far as the x570 plus vs 550a/f it really comes down to the price and features you want and what you're willing to compromise for that each might not have over the other. about the only major features the 550f have over...

    Age of Empires 3: Definitive Edition

    nope, have zero plans of playing it.. AOE3 was terrible and ultimately killed the AOE franchise for the last 15 years. so if you haven't played AOE3 but have fond memories of AOE and AOE2, do yourself a favor and skip it.

    Price cuts after 11/05/20?

    given intel's history the likely answer is no.. now if they swallow their inflated ego then there might be a chance you see "rebates".

    Silverstone New Products (PSUs/Cases/Accessories)

    Happy 15th birthday F.E.A.R.

    i originally said the same thing earlier but it had been so long since i'd played i started second guessing myself that it happened in the game so i deleted my post, lol. i even knew it was coming because my uncle told me and i still jumped out of my seat when it happened.

    Understanding AMD mobo and nvme behavior for my new 5950x mobo

    it depends on the motherboard manufacture but usually it's only the 2nd or 3rd m.2 slot(depending on board) that shares lanes with either 2 sata ports or the 4x slot. since asus doesn't actually list this in their guide i'm not sure specifically how they handle it on their boards, probably can...

    don't get the panels, they don't work correctly in fs20 yet. hell they barely worked in xp11, requires to many damn scripts to setup because logitech is a worthless ass company that doesn't support their products. if he really wants to get into flying and not just something to do for a short...

    NVIDIA Allegedly Moving Ampere to 7nm TSMC in 2021

    agree on the late next year part, the 20 series release cycle in my opinion was a one off and only because the 2080 wasn't faster than the 1080ti. if it had been then they would of stuck to the 10 month release cycle for the 2080ti.

    NVIDIA Allegedly Moving Ampere to 7nm TSMC in 2021

    TSMC already produces the A100 chip for the enterprise sector so they wouldn't have to retool anything but it would significantly drive up the cost of ampere if they did. samsung producing it is likely why they were able to cut the price by 40%

    Will the 5900X or 5800X be your next gaming CPU?

    probably 8c/16t with 5600x clocks OR they just decide to kill the sku for this series because of the RX5700 confusion.

    Will the 5900X or 5800X be your next gaming CPU?

    that's what i was hoping the 5800x was going to be with the 5700x being the 8 core but looks like that's not going to happen.. :(

    Any advice or help would to figure this problem out would be greatly appreciated

    never messed with samsung C die but i'd try bumping the voltage to 1.38v and see if it stablizes. you can also try disabling gear down mode and see if that helps. you can also try bumping SOC voltage from 1.1 to 1.12v and see if that helps as well.

    it's not that.. i ran into a similar issue with a friends 1080ti that would randomly throw the B2 error code, i've never been able to figure out why it does and still does after being in that system for almost a year now. out of the blue it'll just decide that it no longer wants to be detected...

    Will the 5900X or 5800X be your next gaming CPU?

    that's a meaningless metric in the grand scheme of things.. the xbox 1 and ps4 both had 8 core processors in them and the vast majority of games never used more than 4. on top of that 1 of the 8 cores on the xbox 1 was purely dedicated to OS and apps. so based on your theory all games released...

    Will the 5900X or 5800X be your next gaming CPU?

    because clock speeds yo, they're everything.. ;) but yeah i agree the 5600x will be close enough and i've stuck with the x600 chips with each series for that very reason.
  37. S

    Will the 5900X or 5800X be your next gaming CPU?

    i'll probably go with the 5800x and sit on that for the next 3-4 years, don't see anything coming out after that's going to make a drastic difference in performance and DDR5's going to take a couple years before it's worth upgrading to. keep an eye on retail, you'll likely see some random...

    Radeon 6000 series speculation

    AMD Confirms Zen 3's Performance Is Monstrous and Speculation Thread

    all of them won't have it until January for 400 series. wishful thinking because the APU's are custom monolithic dies while zen 3 am4 is using the same IO die and memory controller that zen 2 used. other than the cores, there's really nothing in the 4700g that's similar to zen 2 am4.
