Yeah, and as AMD and NVidia are expecting a slump and probably have a lot of AIB stock, you can expect further drops. I only got mine...

Ow, bought this at 379 from Umart a couple of weeks ago. Sucks to be me.
05/08/2022 - 08:27
From a 2600? Sure, but do check out the 5600 first.
04/08/2022 - 09:34
This is why I think the 5600g is an ideal NAS CPU. Enough grunt for your proxmoxes or whatever, and an adequate graphics ability for...

Given that most PCIe for GPU cards is either 3x16 or 4x8 you're technically correct, the best kind of correct. Nonetheless, it's a thing to...

Bitcoin is all custom ASICs now - the spivs buying AMD cards are all Ethereum or similar miners. You can already see the cards being...

Better value per pair-of-cores than the 5600x prices going around.
02/08/2022 - 14:06
Difficult to argue against that, really, just a matter of taste.
02/08/2022 - 14:03
The 5600G has lower clocks, and a lot les cache.
02/08/2022 - 14:02
Different part - the 5600g has no PCIe 4 and less L3 cache. Nothing wrong with a 5600G for something like a NAS though.

Because it's a good time for upgrading current AM4 setups with older Ryzen CPUs.

For productivity stuff, it can be. For gaming, less so.

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X OEM CPU + AMD CPU Cooler (4.6GHz, 6 Cores) $289 Delivered @ HT via eBay
Ebay Tuesday special from Harris - haven't seen a 5600x under 300 for a while
02/08/2022 - 12:56
Was in stock when I pressed "order", a few hours later it turned into "on backorder" so who knows?

As it is, I gave up and got myself a $379 Asus RX 6600 dual from Umart, as the R9 380 I'm using now is very tired. If there's a huge price...
22/07/2022 - 13:26
Eh, fans are an easy fix. I'd rather not use a mining card of course.
22/07/2022 - 11:23
Eh, a significant number seem to not give a shit about that at all. I'd have no problems with a mining card that's been left on, as they...

The hobby miners are already dumping 6600xts for 350 or less, dust covered as they are from running a mining shop in a shipping container.
22/07/2022 - 09:08
I paid 289 in 2019 for an MSI RX580 8GB Armor OC card, and that was overpriced considering how hot it runs. Pricing is still currently...

Six hundred bucks does not pass the spouse-acceptance test for perceived value.

This looks exactly like the sort of case a xenomorph would hide it and then kill you with it's tongue-jaws
21/06/2022 - 13:14
Lol, I was looking at that!
20/06/2022 - 11:52
Yeah, don't really trust those as it doesn't reflect the actual sale price a lot of the time.
20/06/2022 - 11:51
Over the past week I've been monitoring ebay et al, and whilst more cards are appearing the asking prices are so hilarious it's not even...

Ok, went to login to check my order status and my order link just hits the frontpage of the website, and the google sso login I used is...

Grabbed it, as the driver precision screwdriver set I got last time completely shat itself and ate the bloody head forever.
17/05/2022 - 09:43
Been looking at getting into this for a while, and with the coupon I thought I couldn't go too wrong for the price. Ordered one; we'll see...
