    AMD Radeon RX 6950 XT, RX 6850 XT, RX 6750 XT ‘RDNA 2 Refresh’ Graphics Cards Rumored For Q2 2022: Navi 21 & 22 GPUs With 18 Gbps Memory

    Couldn't care less about Ray Tracing... I don't play a single game that even supports it. Hopefully, I won't have to buy a new GPU until after the next product cycle late this year. /6600XT works just fine for 1440p gaming

    Is it worth upgrading to Windows 11?

    I've already got a ghost image of my boot drive, but will update it. The CTD issue is weird and has been happening on/off for several years. Never while gaming or running any productivity app - only happens 1-2 times a month when playing a YT video... best guess is that my 6600XT runs out of...

    Is it worth upgrading to Windows 11?

    My Win10 system for work/play (Ryzen 5900/32gb) is now pushing me with nags to install the Win11 update... Gaming performance in W11 is about identical to W10? I suppose MS Office performance is same. How is memory handling? I sometimes get CTD's when playing YouTube videos

    EKWB Lays Off 25% of Workforce, Blames Lower Watercooling Sales

    Every two years or so, when I do upgrades, I'll say to myself 'time to build a W/C'... and then I look at build prices, gasp... just lazy out and put in a good AIO /has Lian Li Galahad 360 - replaced the crap LL fans and went 6-fan push-pull and get silly low temps on my 5900X /14 fans total :p...

    "Star Trek: Discovery" Renewed for Season 3

    I think wokeness ought to be this generation's Godwin Law... the first poster crying racism, sexism, ****ism, equity, etc (and anyone dredging up Gamergate) automatically loses the thread and must stand in a corner with a dunce cap on ;)

    5800X3D official specs listed on AMD web site

    Sticking with my 5900X. I'd like to ride with AM4 for at least another year before I start thinking upgrades again.

    Starlink Public Beta About to Happen?!?!

    Do it! We're thinking about doing the same, getting out of Houston and trying to find a nice quiet corner of the hill country that hasn't already been discovered and become unaffordable, so we might consider Arkansas, Missouri, Colorado or even Maine for our retirement. She wants to rescue...

    Firefox Gurus... how can I disable 'You have new Updates' nag in the Registry?

    I like Brave... but FVD Speeddial doesn't run in it, as of the last time I checked. At the moment I'm just looking for a registry hack to mute FF's constant attempt to dial home

    Firefox Gurus... how can I disable 'You have new Updates' nag in the Registry?

    When Firefox recently disabled FVD Speeddial (which is essential to me) I had to back up to a prior version of FF and then I disabled automatic updates in FF setup. Now I'm getting an unacceptable level of 'nags' every time I open a webpage reminding me to Update - How can I turn these reminders...

    HardOCP.com: Status Quo is No Mo

    Ack... unfortunately, I think you're going to be right on this one. It might easily become a world where Gamer's Nexus and Hardware Unboxed become unprofitable.... while Linus grows and branches out with his own cooking lines of air fryers and a daytime talk show, and such :/ /starting to really...
