    It will be important in the future. There is no current game that is "make or break" with respect to RT.

    We all need a little more of this in our lives. NFT Market Collapses Just As Square Enix Sells Tomb Raider To Bet Big On Blockchain

    HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! If Squenix couldn't get Tomb Raider, Deus Ex, and a damned Marvel license to "perform to expectations", there is no studio to buy or build that is going to save them.

    Windows 10 Explorer will not connect to networked computers

    This has been a constant pain in the ass with Windows 10 on every system. Out of 8 computers on the network, a Win10 system will only connect to 1 or 2 in Explorer to access network shares. Remote Desktop Connection will connect, but Explorer will not. WTF?

    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for AMD, Nvidia, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    Nvidia will allegedly continue 30XX production after the 40XX launch. Different foundries, but memory supply may get tight.

    That's all folks!!

    VQuake with edge AA FTW! I went from a V1000 to a V2200 with a Voodoo 1 then a Voodoo 2. I think it was ATI after that.

    Embracer Group is Buying Square Enix Montréal, Eidos Montréal and Crystal Dynamics for $300 million

    They deserved to lose money on Avengers with their "as a service" and mtx crap. That, unfortunately, may have affected sales of Guardians, even though it was much better received.

    Embracer Group is Buying Square Enix Montréal, Eidos Montréal and Crystal Dynamics for $300 million

    This liberates the IPs Squenix has been ignoring. Their constant claims of "didn't meet expectations" is bullshit and usually is the result of poor marketing or consumer-hostile "features" like microtransactions. It seems like they've been trying to sabotage their western studios.

    Microsoft to buy Activision Blizzard

    So, that's where the feds are going to finally apply antitrust laws? After all the mergers just in telecom and media in the last 5-10 years, now seems like an odd time to remember those laws exist.

    5800X3D gaming review

    https://www.techpowerup.com/review/amd-ryzen-7-5800x3d/16.html Within 1% of the 12900KS. ~7% faster than 5800X, 5900X & 5950X.

    5800X3D gaming review

    On the 1% lows for 1080P, I count 6 wins for AMD, 1 win for Intel, and 4 ties. I care more about 1% lows than averages, because it's the frame rate dips that affect the experience most.

    Gentle Typhoon 120mm 2150 RPM PWM Fans (ADATA XPG Variant) 3 for $57.98

    I read over the weekend that the bearings on the Arctic fans allow the blade hub to slip outside the frame if the fan is mounted to blow upward. A small spacer gives the blades enough room to move freely.

    AMD 6X50 Series Info Leaked

    I've seen that number mentioned for Navi 3, but I don't think AMD is changing it for Navi 2 refresh.
