    AMD announces Ryzen 7000 Zen 4 CPUs

    Are you and chameleoneel not mistaking the 6600XT and 6600 with the 6500XT and the 6400?

    Which is the GA107 GPU RTX 3050?

    This market segment really needs Intel to finally launch.

    Will Zen 4 be the real deal and a worthy upgrade from Zen 3

    Sure, sure. And the first X2's. But my point was Zen 4 is just going to be incrementally better, it incorporates all the new bells and whistles but won't be revolutionary like the OP hopes and nor does it need to be. It will be a platform going forward. Unless they pull an Intel and erase it in...

    Far Cry 4, Escape from Monkey Island (Prime Gaming June 1st)

    Ya know I really don't know but assumed. I always got the games I wanted that were on an external platform but avoided any Amazon only as I thought I would loose them as soon as I dropped my trial Prime sub. Sorry if I was steering anyone wrong.

    Crypto Miners, Not Gamers, Were The Primary Buyers of Graphics Cards Since 2021, Almost $15 Billion Worth of GPU Sales Reported

    This makes sense to me as mining usually loves memory, the more and the faster the better. Nvidia's 3000 series high-end are pushing the RAM spec harder then AMD's offerings. Many RAM woes of 3080ti/3090's out there.

    So, am I the only one that AMD treats like a criminal when requesting an RMA?

    It is called designed obsolescence. There is a tipping point for every product where the bean counters cut it off. Research light bulbs. Car makers for example have a cut off point where a flaw can cause so many deaths before they do a recall because of the costs of doing so.

    Far Cry 4, Escape from Monkey Island (Prime Gaming June 1st)

    Games that fall under the Amazon games banner you loose when you drop your Prime subscription. Others, Origin, Steam etc.. you keep as long as you added them to those services.

    Thunderbird ruffled some feathers upon release for sure but Athlon X4?

    Will Zen 4 be the real deal and a worthy upgrade from Zen 3

    As far as I see it everything is ONE step more modern. There is nothing revolutionary there, just a modern logical upgrade. We won't be let down unless one expects some unknown "super" features that make everything previous obsolete. When was the last time we saw that?

    Nvidia GeForce FX 5800 Ultra

    What? This isn't 2005 anymore. We have microwaves now!

    is I3-3750K to i7-7700K a useful upgrade ?

    If that is all you intend to use it for, and you insist on spending foolish money on a new not used CPU, stay with what you got and use the $$ elsewhere.

    Picking a gaming laptop from Costco

    It is a small screen, 1080p is fine. We also have to consider it is 1080p @ 144Hz so that will give that 3070m much longer legs going forward. The goal here is to get 144fps minimum @ 1080p. Not 60fps. Edit: in the future add a nice external 4K monitor/TV and see what performs better.
