    Intel i7-3700K vs AMD Ryzen 7900x ?

    These are the two CPUs I'm considering. I realize the Ryzen 7700x is more of a direct rival to the 3700K but price-wise right now they are very similar, and still not too far apart in specs. I'm coming from a very old system, so whether Intel or AMD I'll have to buy a new mobo as well. I do not...

    Noctua D15S socket compatibility

    I bought this cooler last year for an AM4 build that I didn't get around to. Now I am seriously considering an Intel build instead. The box does not list compatibility for an LGA 1700 socket (for an 1-7 13700K). Is there a bracket I could get to make it fit? Or will I have to buy a whole new...

    AsRock no longer supporting ECC memory in AM5 boards?

    Thanks. AsRock supported ECC with AM4 in their bios/UEFI. It's actually listed and and you can choose to enable it. It does correct errors, it just doesn't create any error logs to show you. It runs in the background. The QVL memory specs on all their AM4 boards were listed as supporting ECC and...

    AsRock no longer supporting ECC memory in AM5 boards?

    Just had a look at the AsRock website and their new AM5 boards don't support ECC memory, like the AM4 boards did. Is this because DDR 5 RAM has built in ECC memory?

    Does anyone know any rumors/speculation about the 4060 ti? - Price? - Release date? - Power draw? - Improvement % over 3060 ti?

    Why is Nvidia better than AMD for video editing?

    Thanks. I also just noticed in the Puget graphs that there is a 3060 with 12 GB. Kind of strange that AMD scores are that low when Apple used AMD GPUs in their Macs for so many years. I guess AMD must have created drivers specifically for Final Cut Pro since FCP is pretty fast.

    Why is Nvidia better than AMD for video editing?

    Interesting. Thanks for all the replies. Is there an Nvidia 3000 series card with more than 8 GB of vram? It's the amount of vram that partly made me interested in AMD.

    Why is Nvidia better than AMD for video editing?

    The consensus sees to be that Nvidia is better (or at least faster) than AMD for video editing. I was just curious about why that is? The mechanics of it. Is it the clock speed? The cuda cores? The drivers? etc. I don't game, but would rather support AMD than the greedy green team. So, even...

    Ryzen 4 Reviews Are Out.

    Thanks, so do you happen to know whether the 7700x and 7900x have one or two CCDs?

    Ryzen 4 Reviews Are Out.

    In Zen 3 the 8-core 5800X ran hotter than the other R7's and even R9's. This was apparently because of the CCD placed on the same chip or something. Now from what I gather, all the new Zen 4 R7's and R9's run hot (around 95°C). Will the 8-core 7700 also run hotter than the rest of the new Zen 4...

    Thanks for that. Makes sense now.

    EVGA no longer making GPUs!

    Also Jayz I don't quite understand who Andrew Han (EVGA CEO) was talking to. Steve from GN made it sound like he had an exclusive interview with him. But Jayz sounded like it was an interview with many tech channel hosts.

    What kind of plug is this?

    Thanks! Didn't know exactly what it was called.
