    2 gamers, 1 box?

    Are you both playing at the same time? Might be easier to just share the same computer the old fashioned way. Time division. Otherwise, having gone through the VFIO method with my 3400G + GTX970, I'd not recommend it for anything that has to "just work." I could simultaneously use the IGP for...

    NVIDIA Bans Reviewer for Concentrating on Rasterization Instead of Ray Tracing

    Now you are further moving the goalposts and shifting blame around.

    NVIDIA Bans Reviewer for Concentrating on Rasterization Instead of Ray Tracing

    Doesn't excuse nor change the post you made.

    How Often do you

    A long time ago with 98, 2000, & XP, I'd reinstall every couple of months. Any longer, and Windows just got slow. I only ran laptops back then, so maybe on a desktop, it wasn't that bad? Vista, I left it there for a while and that install made it all the way to Windows 8 (I think I did a...

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    Yeah, when B&H opened their preorders many hours before launch, I thought it was fishy.

    Updating drivers crashes my rig

    I only have WAGs, so might as well put one up. Maybe fiddle with these settings? Otherwise, congrats on your new card. I'd still check the PSU anyways. Also when the system reboots, are the new drivers installed, or does it roll back to older/default drivers?

    New ASUS X570 BIOS Update [02/05/2021] - Version 3405

    Just updated my X570 TUF wifi to 3001. I don't OC, so I don't know if I'll be of much use when talking about OC stability.

    What do ISP "Middle Men" do?

    Echoing what plugwash said above, CGNAT, perhaps?

    Are there any X570 mobos that supports 16x PCIe 4.0 (GPU) + 4x PCIe 4.0 (NVMe) + 8x PCIe 3.0 (50Gbps NIC)?

    Definitely. It costs quite a bit more, however. I do wish the old 8 and 16 core Threadrippers were still around, but I understand that AMD isn't going for that, anymore.

    Riding on the Success of the M1, Apple Readies 32-core Chip for High-end Macs

    Where? Before the Epic lawsuit and the legally required email disclosures (which revealed Apple gave Amazon a discount), where did Apple claim they would be willing to give discounts on their store's cut?

    Riding on the Success of the M1, Apple Readies 32-core Chip for High-end Macs

    Or consoles. Or any massive number of vendor locked workstations (where a lot of these programs reside). Though the latter is much rarer with SaaS taking over that model (IMO, that was largely accelerated by the death of almost all workstation/server uarchs not named x86). Yay dongles and...

    Riding on the Success of the M1, Apple Readies 32-core Chip for High-end Macs

    Eh, I would challenge anyone to make an Intel/AMD 6 core + 10GbE + 4 TB3 device with internal PSU, in that volume. Outside of the Mac Mini, it just doesn't exist. Dell, HP, Lenovo, ASRock, etc. None of them do anything like it. None of them even have more than 1GbE RJ45, 1 TB3 port (if they even...

    Questions about my Asus motherboard's Wifi+Bluetooth module's Antenna

    99% of the time, the BT antenna is integrated into the PCB of the combo WiFi/BT card, with no connection to external antennas.

    DAN A4-SFX: The smallest gaming case in the world

    in my own testing, the sidepanels needed to be almost 1cm further away to avoid turbulence noise. I eventually just ran with the GPU sidepanel off.
