  1. GTX 2080 and GTX 2080 Ti release date?

    Well yeah, that would imply AMD can rival them. Ofcourse they won't admit that. It's not usually in direct response, usually they hold onto the Ti cards so AMD can't just release nothing then suddenly come out with one card that tops everything.
  2. GTX 2080 and GTX 2080 Ti release date?

    They are expected in 3rd quarter, I'd say for sure no earlier than April/May. Don't expect the 2080Ti this year. x80ti cards don't really get released until a while after the original 80 is released (so they can keep fresh cards in the market to rival amd)
  3. Sorry to burst the bubble of the people getting hyped, but your forgetting this is STOCK, and AMD are likely pushing these chips as far as they can out the box, leaving very little room for overclocking. Intel however.. leave the 8700k at 3.7ghz stock. 8700ks surpass 4.5GHZ EASILY and most will be able to hit 4.8. 5GHZ is not uncommon either. A 5GHZ 8700K won't be matched by any new Ryzen processor until gen 2.
  4. Hdd spinning at a angle

    That hasn't been a problem for years. Modern HDDs have motion sensors that stop the arm moving around if the PC is being moved.
  5. I've used the Maximus X hero and the Maximsu X Code. Both are fantastic, no problems. Great overclockers, solid build quality and great features. Way better than Gigabyte. I'd also consider the Intel 600P if I were you. For the price of a 500gb 960, you could get a 1TB 600P.
  6. Not a chance. Ryzen's IPC isn't even Skylake level.
  7. Opinions on the razer kraken 7.1 ?

    Steelseries make better headsets,check out the Arctis 5
  8. New rumours about new Nvidia GTX cards

    Given the timegap between Pascal and this gen, I'm expecting a significant performance boost in these cards, just like the 9 - 10 series "30%" jump. I'm thinking the X060 could even match 1080 performance, the X070 being the 1080Ti and the X080 to become the new king. It's what happened with Kepler to Maxwell (780ti = 970) and Maxwell to Pascal (980Ti = 1070). Additionally we've got stuff like new PCIe specifications and new VRAM specifications, to me that says that GPU manufacturers have started to push the limits of PCie 3.0 and GDDR5X, likely with this generation. I'm hoping that the fact I only have 8 lanes for my GPU (nvme ssd takes up 2 out of my 16) won't screw me long term if I buy one of these.
  9. HP Omen 15 vs Dell Inspiron 15

    HP omen is awful, take it from someone who owned one. Dell inspiron isn't that good but it's better.
  10. Asus aura doesn't support cam or corsair products (excluding corsair's memory).
  11. Corsair, quietest fans I have ever used, far better customer service too. I wouldn't advice the X62, the H155i / H155i Pro RGB is far, far better.
  12. H115i and CAM

    No, there isn't.
  13. No, there aren't, If RAM is capable of holding any data, it's randomised and irrelevant and would rely on completely outwards factors like the temperature. If you think a virus can retain inside memory alone, you have no clue how RAM works on a scientific level. Viruses might be able to latch onto RAM if they flash themselves to something like a UEFI, sure. But onto a stick of ram thrown into a garbage bin? That's absurd.
  14. What? That isn't true at all. RAM is volatile. RAM, on a hardware level, is incapable of holding data when deactivated. A virus can't stay in RAM.
  15. Kraken x62 vs H115i

    I didn't even know there was a model without RGB, I have the RGB model.
