    Who said anything about feeling guilty? I'm just glad there's such an economical solution because christ things are getting fucking expensive in techland, and I know he'll love the handheld console...

    Oh yes, of course we want such cards. Sucks to be us. If we're fortunate, we can hold out until GPU mining crashes and we can pick up cheap Amperes. If we're not we can pay 1100 for a real card...

    I surrendered my "never pre-order" principles and pre-ordered a 512GB Steam Deck. I have made an executive decision that this will fulfill my hastily made commitment to get #2 nephew (currently aged...

    The 6500 is a temporary, transitional anomaly IMO. The "sub-$200" market is going to be APUs. Just like I said a while ago, a seperate video card will increasingly become a specialist add-on, in...

    I would also add that I've seen a lot fewer people complaining about issues with B550 boards than I have X570s. As said above, if you're OK with a pair of 16GB DIMMS, and nearly everyone will be,...

    That board should run a 5800X3D perfectly fine. It's the same TDP as a standard 5800X, and doesn't even require a BIOS update compared to normal Zen3s. As Dax said, it's just a 5800X with 96MB L3...

    Yeah the higher end 6000s should have about 3x the GPU power. The ones with 12 GPU cores all seem to be 8c/16t though. Valve had to get their 4c/8t + 12 RDNA2 core Deck APU custom made, but I think...

    Also a very good point



    Also the new 6000 series APUs, which look pretty impressive. 6 or 12 RDNA2 cores on DDR5 will be a huge step up from the Vega core APUs. AMD did say that they won't...

    You are not reading what I am writing. I'm saying that there probably IS a significant correlation, but it is not the sole contributor and there IS a shortage of parts that also play a role.

    Compared to putting that money into a bank account, that's pretty good. $5/day is $1800/yr so "a long time to recoup the investment" on that 3090is, er, ~1 year. Plus you have a very saleable asset...
