Sorry, but a card that was overpriced to begin with, and is now MORE than the MSRP, is never a bargain.

The way to understand hybrids is they make fuel consumption round town roughly the same as it would be on the open road between towns…

Have these from full price, well worth the $20 if you can find them, particularly since there are two as opposed to the 1.4m similar price,…

The unfortunate reality is that even with NVidia, the gap in FPS between raster and raytrace is up to a 30-50% loss in performance. With…

Over $400 cheaper than the 4080s, faster in raster, more memory for textures (which is at least as important as RT), and ray tracing is…

Said 100Mbps on the review I saw - either way dual-band isn't good for mesh networking.

> Dual-Band Needless to say, dual-band is not good for a mesh system. The 5Ghz band will be doing double duty as wifi access point…

Microsoft only abandoned cortana after everyone else had.

Firstly, the NVidia super cards are coming out over Jan, with more realistic prices. As such it's expected that AMD will cut prices too.…

In part its because the exchange rate is horrible. However the main thing is the hard disk manufacturers were allowed to merge such that by…

Got a cheap 1TB drive just to see the way it was fake. Firstly, they are extremely slow. It would take hours to write 64Gb, which is right…

4080 is US$100 or AU$200 overpriced, still. Arguably, this late in the generation they should be even cheaper.
09/01/2024 - 08:38
The days of 8GB being enough when the texture sizes are ballooning (for 4k) are over. Even 12GB is probably not going to cut it in a few…

I'm seriously considering Win12, just because of the useful things you could do with some decent inference engine for the heavy lifting.…

Well, people might have use for those PCI x1 slots, the M.2 slots are getting full with NVMe SSDs. Not sure why any numbnuts would downvote…

Well you certainly don't have to change IT hardware because mickeysoft can't support OS properly. To most people I'd say, wait for the…

The way I looked at it, the prices for a GFX card are terrible. However there is little that's really going to change things in the near…

$145 for those that are interested, which is slightly less than I paid for a 5TB portable drive 3 years ago. Should be ~$110 by now.
26/12/2023 - 09:41
Worthwhile noting that it seems MS will set a 45-50 TOPS requirement for Win12, and therefore there is a good likelihood that plug in…

The general issue is the same as AIs - how do you make money out of them? You aren't going to get away with charging a subscription, the…

No Stock = We know how many we ordered, and how many have gone through the checkout. We are out. Low Stock = We know how many we ordered,…

Ahh, so that's the reason for it. I thought it was just aping the yanks again. And all the 'only one coupon per cart' means is two orders…

It's always amazed me that a technology that was specifically built to spread and link knowledge has been usurped by bean counters to put…

*"no worthwhile deals"* That's basically because they can sell them easily - because people recognise the value. And as for upgradability,…

I didn't think anyone was looking at intel's 14th gen? I mean, the 7800X3D is cheaper, generally better in games, has the same number of…

That's a nice $200 motherboard you have there. Shame the AM5 motherboards remain horribly overpriced.

Samsung > Sandisk By a mile. I'd trust Samsung to continue to work. I'd trust Sandisk to lose data.
