    Short answer: No Slightly longer answer: https://www.dough.tech/pages/spectrum-monitors but not sure if they are actually shipping product yet and the company has a bit of a history with regards to failed promises, constant and significant...

    this is what was said about FSAA in the first 5-7 years it was around too. And I'd say its been something people dont even think about turning off or on for, hmmm, maybe at least 6 years now? More? I definitely stopped thinking about it with...

    I am giving it the ol' best effort. If they truly announce at CES and have availability within 6-8 weeks... ish... I am definitely on board. But if its a CES sneak peak with no availability until summer then I dont know, it could be RPL time...

    His whole position is just really perplexing. He is saying that relative to the raster increases gen on gen, the raytracing increases are poor, and by 'poor' meaning only slightly outpacing the raster increases. As if somehow the relative...

    Also, its not about the fan noise today, its about the fan noise 4 years from now.

    I would go windows 11 only because I am a very simple user of the OS and that simple functionality is fine in W11. I will also be using an HDR display device and that is one area where W11 is dramatically better tuned than W10.

    Will be the same as its the same panel and windows is still the same.

    No i have a 3 year old LG 34" but would have upgraded to the 38" until all of these OLEDs turned up complicating things. But I am definitely a gigantic 21:9 zealot which is why even though I am eyeballing a C2 it is with definite mixed feelings...

    Im definitely finding myself more and more receptive to the 7900XTX for sure. I think it will ultimately come down to whats available when I pull the trigger on a new cpu (waiiting for Zen4X3D). If the 4090's are readily available I will go...

    I said it before and I'll say it again, the 38" 21:9 form factor is absolutely perfect imo. Its a shame that it hasnt taken off at all. 3840x1600 is a fantastic resolution, but i feel the 38" size could also easily handle 5120x2160 too.

    I thought the answer was pretty clear: A 'reasonably' priced 4080 would negatively impact sales of 3070 to 3090 parts which the channel is stuffed with and struggling to clear through. Nvidias position is essentially "please help us clear the...

    The question is are these issues that should be fixed by Samsung Displays (ther panel maker) or Samsung Electronics (the monitor maker). If the latter, then the hope would be that some other monitor maker who uses the same samsung panel , might...

    I’m putting together a new system for the first time in 9 years and am looking at a 3x 2TB nvme sticks configuration. I would like a board that supports full speed/full lanes on all of them while still having a 16 lane pcie5 gpu slot. I am...

    Zero percent chance of this imo. The 4090 is unassailable right now and nvidia will keep it priced as such (imo). The forthcoming 4080 will be the one to watch to see if nvidia reacts. They *should* because the 7900XTX is going to shit all...

    Good luck, bro! Personally, I’m waiting for Seasonic or Corsair.

    I feel calling it a poor showing is overly critical. And I say this as a pretty much certain 4090 buyer. It would be a poor showing if they priced it a few hundred cheaper than the 4090. It is six hundred dollars cheaper. At a minimum. It's...
  • S
    ahh maybe a bit underwhelmed in actual performance. Was hoping raster would be a bit more competitive... its not bad certainly, but was hoping it would be closer to the 4090 overall. RT performance came in at kind of the worst case scenario...

    Surly replied to the thread Zen 4 and memory speeds.
    so am i at least correct in that the memory speed support is built into the cpu and not the motherboard/chipset? What im trying to avoid is being limited by the motherboard. The socket longevity is much less valuable if essentially need a new...

    New to Zen cpu's and have a question... So I understand that currently the sweet spot for memory performance on Zen 4 is 6000mhz DDR5, with ramped up speeds beyond that not showing significant gains. I loosely understand this is related to the...

    Surly replied to the thread Is the RTX 4090 FE vaporware?.
    Lets see if availability miraculously improves in the next 4-6 weeks... coincidentally when the 7900XT/XTX cards are rumored to be available...
