    Questions about Corsair RMX PSUs, and PSUs in general

    Might the RTX 4000 or 5000 series require a 12VHPWR connector, and would a GPU that takes one not be functional with a PSU that doesn't have that connector? Like the current-style pins can't fit into that connector and just operate without the power capabilities-reporting pins? I don't really...

    Questions about Corsair RMX PSUs, and PSUs in general

    So, EVGA Supernova 1000 G6, or Corsair RMx 1000? They're both on sale right now, at all the stores I've looked at. $189 CAD for the Corsair RMx, $179 for the EVGA Supernova G6. They seem to be neck-to-neck in reviews. I'm in a 120v region, which makes the EVGA more palatable, as, apparently...

    Questions about Corsair RMX PSUs, and PSUs in general

    There's a 2021 version of the 1000 watt RMX, and a newer one, presumably 2022. The 2021 version is being price-dumped pretty hard right now. 2021 one: https://www.amazon.ca/CORSAIR-SeriesTM-RM1000x-Modular-Supply/dp/B08R5PH1VY/ Newer one...

    AMD announces Ryzen 7000 Zen 4 CPUs

    The RTX 4080 is rumoured to have a TDP of 450 watts. I hope I can get by with 850 watts. I would prefer to have some decent headroom. I don't feel like spending another $250 CAD for another PSU, though.

    AMD announces Ryzen 7000 Zen 4 CPUs

    Should an 850 watt PSU be good enough for a Zen 4 CPU of comparable SKU-tier to Zen 3's the 5800x and an RTX 4080? Other specs of this hypothetical PC would include an X670 mobo, 64 GB of DDR5 RAM, and 5 storage drives. And perhaps an upgrade to a 3D V-cache CPU when they release. I bought a...

    Duke Nukem Forever (2001)

    I think getting the source code for this is pretty cool and has historical value, since it runs on a modified / upgraded version of UE1 and Epic hasn't released Unreal / UE1's source. I wonder if it holds any prospects for people wanting to modify other UE1 games.

    WD/Kioxia lose 6.5 exabytes of NAND

    Also, in front of Raptor Lake's and Zen 4's releases, when people will be splurging on storage for new PC builds.

    Starfield release date officially announced.

    I think the release date was announced with Bethesda's June, 2021 E3 trailer for Starfield, which it shows at the end of.

    Phil Spencer, Microsoft's Executive VP of Gaming, advocates for game preservation

    I don't think that Nintendo is the gold standard when it comes to emulation. Their Canoe emulator, which is what the SNES Classic uses by default, isn't that great. It's good, it's not great. It has more input lag than other emulators, and it has some sloppy sound emulation (sounds not playing...

    Phil Spencer, Microsoft's Executive VP of Gaming, advocates for game preservation

    Microsoft gaming chief calls for industry-wide game preservation Microsoft's Phil Spencer Wants the Gaming Industry to Embrace Game Preservation Through Emulation Why modern consoles can’t just “run any… older executable” I really like this quote: "I think in the end, if we said, 'Hey...

    Rockstar's most recent update to the Steam version of L.A. Noire added online-only DRM.

    They're a shit company, run by greedy, mindless psychopaths. And with the GTA remasters together with these moves, it seems like they've followed BioWare, DICE, Bethesda, and Blizzard in suiciding their reputation.

    Vicarious Visions to drop its name and fully merge with Blizzard

    Blizzard is needing a lot of new developers because of how many left the studio in recent years. They've been gutted. I think a lot of Blizzard worked on D2R. Diablo 4 was put on hold so the people working on it could instead focus on D2R after the team originally designated to make D2R was...

    The core i9 12900K used 2.3x power than the Ryzen 5950x in official benchmark

    Don't forget that Alder Lake doesn't work with existing versions of some DRM (like Denuvo) and so you won't be able to play a bunch of games with it unless developers update the DRM. I'll be skipping Alder Lake. Wish Zen 4 would get here sooner, though.

    The EU's Court of Justice rules people are entitled to repair their purchased software, and may decompile it in order to do so

    The EU and Australia's highest courts have said people do own their software - even when a publisher claims it is merely licensed. And the US Supreme Court has opined that the first-sale doctrine necessarily must apply to software. But owning an instance of a copyrighted work doesn't give a...

    The EU's Court of Justice rules people are entitled to repair their purchased software, and may decompile it in order to do so

    The European Union's highest court ruled on October 6 that people may decompile their software if necessary to fix its intended function. The Court of Justice previously, in 2012, ruled that people own the specific copies of software that they purchase: "the copyright holder transfers the...
