  1. I see you guys went for the most efficient "mid-range" build. Well here's a "low-budget" gaming build for even lower wattage, but still passable performance: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Results45/saved/wHMRkL Component Selection Base Promo Shipping Tax Price Where CPU AMD Athlon 200GE 3.2 GHz Dual-Core Processor $49.49 $4.81 $54.30 Buy CPU Cooler Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler $34.99 -$10.00 1 FREE $24.99 Buy Motherboard MSI X470 GAMING PLUS ATX AM4 Motherboard $109.99 -$10.00 1 FREE $99.99 Buy Memory GeIL EVO POTENZA 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory $54.99 FREE $54.99 Buy Storage Hitachi Ultrastar 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive $34.99 $34.99 Buy Storage Intel 660p 512 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive $54.99 FREE $54.99 Buy Video Card MSI GeForce GTX 1660 6 GB VENTUS XS OC Video Card $214.99 FREE $214.99 Buy Case Phanteks ECLIPSE P350X ATX Mid Tower Case $69.99 -$10.00 1 $1.99 $61.98 Buy Power Supply Cooler Master MWE Gold 750 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply $99.99 -$20.00 2 FREE $79.99 Buy Base Total: $724.41 Mail-in Rebates: -$50.00 Shipping: $6.80 Total: $681.21 @ ~350W MAX Overclocking: https://babeltechreviews.com/46-game-overclocking-showdown-the-gtx-1660-super-vs-the-gtx-1660-ti/ https://www.techspot.com/review/1758-amd-athlon-200ge-overclocking/ Side note: Yes there are better CPU/GPU combos (i.e. Ryzen 3/5, Core i3/i5K, RX 5500, GTX 1650S/RTX 2060), but I went for lowest peak wattage with playable 1080p "High" framerates still in mind. Go game and be hulking green!
  2. Well what if Display port 3.0 comes with support for OcuLink at TB3 speeds? Cuz DP aggregation can already net you 10GB/s: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DisplayPort
  3. Oh the dodads one finds while surfing the web. AFAIK PCI-SIG's rival to Thunderbolt ~ Optical Copper Link (aka OcuLink) ~ seem's to have slipped under this community's radar. It currently offers up to 16GT/s when paired with PCIe 4.0 and uses a connector akin to U.2 and Display Port (though flatter/elongated): And for those wondering SuperMicro sells OcuLink-to-SATA cables: https://store.supermicro.com/cable/supermicro-50cm-oculink-to-4-sata-cable-cbl-sast-0933.html More pics: Sources & Resources (my train of research): https://www.reddit.com/r/hardware/comments/48l9f7/can_you_combine_thunderbolt_v3_ports_to_create_an/ https://www.sonnettech.com/product/allegro-usbc-4port-pcie.html https://www.anandtech.com/show/9963/asus-booth-tour-at-ces-2016-10g-switches-external-gpu-dock-usb-c/2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XbowuAFbslI https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/bu3h3i/this_slipped_under_the_radar_pcie_40_will_enable/ http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=auto&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fnews.mynavi.jp%2Farticles%2F2012%2F07%2F17%2Fpcisig%2Findex.html https://blog.fosketts.net/2017/06/22/what-is-oculink/ https://blog.exxactcorp.com/need-know-oculink-technology/ https://www.ixsystems.com/community/threads/the-oculink-port-on-x11sdv-motherboard.72749/ https://www.tomshardware.com/news/what-we-know-about-pcie4,39063.html https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transfer_(computing) https://www.edn.com/electronics-news/4380071/What-does-GT-s-mean-anyway- http://datacenterswitching.blogspot.com/2010/12/gbs-gbs-and-gts.html https://paolozaino.wordpress.com/2013/05/21/converting-gts-to-gbps/ Ah, the more you know
  4. Versus the Galaxy Fold: https://twitter.com/UniverseIce/status/1196772251846107137 https://www.kimovil.com/en/where-to-buy-samsung-galaxy-w20-5g Honestly it looks like the OG models with Apple-ish flat edges and bezels (and maybe a more solid hinge?). And I'll bet if you're diligent enough, you can find both of them on Ebay.
  5. MUTHER RUSSIA: where tech can merge with anything in strange ways. Hell, if was fitted with Koenigsegg Regera or Bugatti Divo (aka twice the torque) it could probably race a Tesla Cybertruck! Admit it: It's both entertaining and refreshing. Meanwhile in London......... .
  6. The Non-Efficient Video Cores are now Highly Efficient
  7. The unofficial Red Magic 3S score comes very close to that 511k mark: https://www.gizmochina.com/2019/09/03/red-magic-3s-records-highest-antutu-score-of-510496-with-sd855-and-12gb-ram/ Maybe even the ROG Phone 2 can reach past 500k with some further software optimization or even manual SoC overclocking. Guides for those that dare: https://www.androidpit.com/how-to-overclock-android https://www.getdroidtips.com/overclocking-android-device/ Yes, you can encode AV1: https://www.streamingmedia.com/Articles/ReadArticle.aspx?ArticleID=130284 They got those results with an old Xeon E3-1505M (Geekbench single-core score of around 5000). In comparison the Snapdragon 8cx/SQ1 isn't too far behind at around 3000 to 4000 so building-in AV1 encoding is looking possible. This however does not take into account processing cores with "optimized vectorization" (whatever that means). So my bad, mobile chips can't do that feasibly just yet. Maybe in a coming years. But the encoding tech does exist.
  8. Here's "D" immensity in its 1000-level glory (pun intended ). But will the name stick? D-immense Specs: 7nm process 4 x A77 + 4 x A55 Mali G77 MP9 GPU 2B+3S+1T APU/NPU up to 64GB LPDDR4X RAM (crap that's a lot) 4K60/HEVC/H.264/AV1 video encoding & decoding (only the latter for AV1) 5G modem up to 4.6Gbps down & 2.5Gbps up WiFi 6 & Bluetooth 5.1 support https://www.anandtech.com/show/15155/mediatek-announces-dimensity-1000-soc-back-to-the-highend-with-5g And the craziest thing to me........up to 80 MEGAPIXELS of combined camera resolution. That's like 2 depth/ambient light sensors ("cameras" that don't really do anything except just that) + a 36MP main camera w/ 8K 30fps video + a 24MP "secondary" camera (selfie cam?) with 4K 60fps video + a 12MP wide-angle camera with 5x optical zoom + a secondary 8MP "regular" camera for other stuff (macro, black-and-white, more selfies, night vision, etc., etc.). Not bad for a peak at what insane SoC features we might see coming from Quallcomm, Samsung, and Huawei in the coming year.
  9. I mean like all the exchanges in collabs & studio tours Linus does (and has in the works) with iJustine........
  10. Since everyone's harping Linus to offer Madison a position in the future (or to hire more female writers/reviewers in general), what are your thoughts on Krystal and her review style? Apparently she's really new to the YT tech reviewers scene racking up over 250k subscribers over the past 2 years. Should Linus give her a studio tour?
  11. How is it that Linus (@ 16:14) doesn't appear to even have one hand on the steering wheel for a few seconds at a time? Does his Chevy Volt have some form of AutoPilot or something? .
  12. Can someone please link me to Madison's original submission video? It popped-up on my YT recommends, but then I forgot to watch it Edit: found it! .
