  1. Selective focus looks awesome! Thanks for the competition guys
  2. Wish I had saved up a little while longer and gotten the 780 rather than the 760 I have right now. I'm happy with the 760 but in hindsight, I would love to have spent the extra money for the 780.
  3. Higher price =/= better CPU. They're both effectively the same chip with the major differences being that the 5930k can be overclocked and the Xeon supports ECC memory (which doesn't matter unless you've got a server). I'd take the 5930k even if it were more expensive than the Xeon. With the consumer grade CPU's the Xeon's lack iGPU's and are not overclockable but they are a fair bit cheaper hence it can make sense in that range but with these two CPU's choosing the Xeon makes no sense whatsoever. Edit: Good to see that you've decided on the 5930k
  4. I have no intention of turning this into a lengthy argument over what is a highly debatable topic. Just brought it up as I do agree with his claim of performance degrading. I have my opinion and you have yours.
  5. Has it occurred to anyone that it may be that she does in fact have a relationship with the author and she has only stated that she doesn't to be a part of sensationalist news?
  6. Hugo Barra (Xiaomi's VP) spoke about why Xiaomi don't put micro SD card slots in their flagships anymore and to be honest, he makes a great point as to why.
  7. @LinusTech I've been looking to get the iFixit Pro Tech Toolkit with the discount from the WAN Show but shipping to Australia is so damn expensive! The toolkit is $54.95 USD with the WAN Show discount but shipping is almost half of that at $23.85 USD. Is there anything you guys can sort out with iFixit to make it affordable for your Aussie viewers?
  8. As cool as this is, it seems irrelevant with USB C already coming out. It's a greatly improved port that's reversible, robust and has better performance.
  9. I don't get how this is innovative. You need the lamp to give light to your workstation in the first place which then requires said light to generate electricity... Not sure they thought this through. Even if the lamp collects energy through a window, it won't be enough at all to cover the cost of the panel and/or the inverter. It seems like people are trying to put solar panels on everything these days. Then they just label it "Environmentally Friendly!" and sell it for far more than you should pay for. Solar panels are great but not on everything.
  10. Btw just to point out that PwC are huge! One of the world's biggest consulting companies (2nd behind Deloitte) and they are regarded very well in the industry. Their industry research is not to be taken lightly. My take on this is just that PC gaming is moving far too quickly for consoles to catch up. But with cloud gaming becoming a thing and subscription based gaming being a part of the future, you just can't write consoles off. They're much more cost effective and are just better for casual gamers who don't want to break the bank for a few hours a week at most.
  11. I actually think there's not many great game streamers. My favourite is GameGrumps and they're amazing but there aren't very many who are really good.
  12. IMO a lot of game streamers don't deserve their audience, in particular Pewdiepie. I really like PCPer. Those guys put a tonne of effort into their content and they regularly have industry experts on there plus they have fantastic knowledge of underlying technology. As much as people talk about their bias towards Nvidia, I think they give AMD quite a fair chance too. Also Hardware Canucks are great too. Edit: With regards to Tek Syndicate, I find their stuff is decent. There are times when their content can be useful and other times when they have this very elitist attitude towards the top
  13. It looks great but I think the biggest gain from this will be consistency. There will always be some cards that are binned better than others but the difference between them will reduce. Who knows, we might end up at a point where all GPU's are made almost exactly the same with the same OCing capabilities. That would mean factory overclocks can get much closer to the reasonable limits of each card!
  14. AMD always seems to deliver on marketing but not on implementation. I get it that they don't have as much R&D funds to work with as Intel or Nvidia do but they seriously have to stop promising this and that through marketing and put a product out that does well without having set so many expectations of their products. I really want to love AMD but they need to re-focus and stop playing like the underdog while trying to over-market their future products.
