  1. Just remembered I had this discount code and I'll never use it so why not give it away!? It's for 20% off one item purchased directly from the Logitech store. First person to message me I'll send the code over (Apologies if this is in the wrong forum!)
  2. Take the names with a handful of salt, Sapphire registered them with the EEC as a list of "possible product names" so I doubt that all of them will be used. It's likely that Sapphire just preemptively registered as many names as they could think of because AMD have yet to announce the actual naming scheme.
  3. I thank that's why its a list of "possible product names" there's no way AMD is going to release that many SKUs
  4. Watching that card turn into a supernova under full load would be a sight to behold awful majestic...
  5. I did the exact same thing just before Skylake was released! Bought a 4790k to swap out my 4590 and pretty much 24 hours later Skylake was announced...
  6. Since Nvidia torpedoed the RX5700(XT) launch with the RTX Super series cards its good to hear officially that AMD has products that will compete with Nvidia in the high-end market segment. AMD just held their Q2 earnings call with investors and the like where Lisa Su stated the following. This echoes "leaks" from Sapphire when they registered that massive list of "possible product names" with the Eurasian Economic Commission last month. Although bear in mind that the contents of the list were "possible product names" so I doubt Sapphire will release that many SKUs, and the same goes for AMD producing this many different chips. I'm glad that AMD have more to come from Navi unlike the Vega cards where the 56 and 64 cards were all we got for a while until the VII came along with the 7nm node shrink. Hopefully the higher end Navi cards will give the RTX Super lineup a run for its money, as its possible that these Navi cards were designed to beat/match the regular RXT cards.

  7. 40% more powerful than any other RISC-V chip is an impressive gain, it'll be interesting to see how the rest of the industry reacts to this. However, I doubt the chip will make it out of China as from the article it sounds like the chip is intended solely for the Chinese market. From the rest of the article it sounds like there's been some serious effort put into the design regarding instruction pipelines and bundling of instruction sets. Not to mention the fact that they're confident enough to release the relevant code as open-source on GitHub. Personally, I'm not going to comment on the availability of U.S. technology in China. Aside from that I'm pretty excited about the future of RISC-V chips, if enough companies get behind it then this could be the norm for SoCs. Although I doubt RISC-V will ever push Intel/AMD etc out of the high-end or mainstream consumer market.

  8. Unfortunately, small is the opposite of what I'm looking for. 5.7"+ screen is a must for them, again unfortunately as I think larger phones are quite unweildy! (SO = Significant Other)
  9. My SO has me looking into a new phone for them and I'm torn between two options. Moto G6 or Nokia 7.1 The G6 is cheaper and Motorola a more established player than HMD. But I reckon Android One should keep new features and the like coming which is often a sore point, that and the 7.1's marginally bigger screen. What do you all think? I'm mostly after the device with better value and longevity. (Also open to suggestions of other devices with similar; price range, screen size, storage options) Thanks in advance for help and suggestions
  10. Anyone know exactly what a smartphone needs to be able to output video via USB-C? (I have a Sony Xperia XA1) I thought it just needed USB On-The-Go/Host support but I'm finding a lot of conflicting information. Any help and insight is greatly appreciated
  11. Anyone know where to get spare screws for this board? I'm missing the screw that holds the mPCIe Combo card onto the board and two screws from the cards protective shield thing. Tried contacting ASUS and they said that they don't deal with end users, don't sell replacement parts nor would accept it as an RMA and that it was the reselling store's responsibility, asked in the store and they said it was ASUS' responsibility ... such great customer support. Thanks in advance for the help guys.
  12. So I'm trying to find an AiO that will squeeze into my new case, Silverstone FTZ01. Anyone know the exact dimensions of the CPU block for this AiO? Or can suggest a different cooler for which the block, rad and fan would be 83mm tall or less when 'stacked' above each other? Thanks in advance.
  13. Extremely unlike but does anyone know of any gaming laptops for under £400? Really doesn't need to be anything fancy, MOBA level graphics and low-med settings. Thanks in advance for any suggestions Edit: Also please keep in mind I'm in the UK, so need any suggested laptops to be available there
