    What game have you put the most time into?

    According to my Steam account it's CS:GO with 977 hours. But looking back I don't think Steam has always logged hours played? I mean I was playing tons of Counter-Strike even before Steam if I'm remembering correctly. Like CS 1.3 or 1.4. Anyone remember those jump maps in OG CS? For when you got...

    AMD EPYC “Genoa” (Zen4) to feature 96 cores across 12 chiplets, 12-channel DDR5 memory and SP5 (LGA6096 socket)

    The 2020 Year in Physics

    Dark Energy is still the theory for the expanding universe exists? I didn't know black holes eventually evaporate? I thought they'd be around forever and eventually gobble up everything.

    Doom 3 - 16 Years Later: A Retrospective

    Guess the price of 24GB RTX 3090 FE

    Over $2K. Nvidia will have other skus to fill in the lower price points. Sounds like a halo product at 24GB, therefore halo product price.
