  1. I was trying to find out where did they get this information, but they only say that they got it from an unnamed notebook OEM that they work with. Believe what you want ¯\_( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)_/¯ From actual tests that I've seen, the first real drop in performance occurs once you go down to PCIe 3.0 x4/PCIe 2.0 x8. Even then it was only around 10%, but I haven't seen tests done using the latest generation GPUs. I personally don't expect to see any meaningful differences though. Well, it is a fairly known website in Poland. But as I said above, they claim an OEM that they work wi
  2. Not even close, PCIe 3.0 8x is still enough, especially for mobile GPUs which are slower than their desktop counterparts.
  3. Something like this should suit your needs well. https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07WF6ZQST
  4. Does the bluetooth device show up in Device Manager? Is bluetooth enabled in Windows itself?
  5. Agreed, I still stand by my opinion that the Ryzen 7 3700X was the best value Ryzen 5000 series CPU Sales seem to reflect that. Honestly I think people are way too obsessed with having "the best gaming performance" CPU. If you have a gaming PC and it's well-balanced, meaning that you have an appropriate display resolution to your graphics card, then you're GPU bound and your CPU choice really becomes secondary. For example even with an RTX 3080, the difference between a mere R5 3600 and an i9-10900K is about 10FPS on average at 1440p, which I'm sure you know you won't be noticing ev
  6. I'm confused, I just read a news article today that mentioned Intel's CEO saying that they started 10nm production of upcoming Xeons, but they stick to 14nm for desktop? I wonder if they're going to release an HEDT lineup using this architecture and process node, or if they're going to wait for full 10nm goodness.
  7. A core count decrease? What? It's sad that B460 isn't supported, but oh well - it's Intel after all... At least finally the IPC gains seem promising, though I expected a bit more than "2-9%" performance improvement in games with an almost 20% IPC boost.

    Oh I love this so much 🤣

      Hey brother happy new year! Still no sign of your RTX 3080?! :(

      @i_build_nanosuits Oh man, I didn't notice your message! Happy new year to you and your family too!

      As for my GPU, still no word. I'm so pissed already, but I cannot cancel the order since I paid a low price for it (exactly MSRP).
      And I think it won't be quick, because I ordered the 3080 TUF model that's the "non-OC", since we all know that the "OC" branding is complete BS and the cards are identical. But apparently ASUS sends out pretty much only the OC TUFs, to increase their margins during shortages...

      That sucks :( sorry to hear that...update us once you get it :)

      Take care!

  9. Here's a video comparing performance impact of various settings in CP2077, should answer your question:
  10. Really? You prefer being in a situation, in which if you bought a brand new platform consisting of a top-tier Z170 board and the top-tier CPU i7-6700K, you had no upgrade path whatsoever since day one?
  11. The Gaming Plus Max is a far better board. If it's cheaper, then it's a no-brainer. P.S. Get the Ryzen 5 3600, not the 3600X. You're literally paying for a letter in the name.
  12. 6 days ago, two months have passed since I ordered an ASUS TUF RTX 3080. I ordered it at an MSRP of $699 (plus 23% VAT in EU).

    I still haven't received the card, despite the fact that I ordered it around 25-30 minutes after it went for sale on launch day... Now the same card at the same retailer is priced at around $1050, but at least for a short time it was available to order for the MSRP.

    NVIDIA's CEO saying the RTX 3000 series had a "demand" issue, not a supply one is a giant joke, since they can't even fulfil day 1 orders for over two damn months.


    Since then, seems like online retailers realized they can scalp even more money from people, so when the RX 6800 series cards went for sale, they were never listed at their MSRP, but their prices were hiked up right away. So a reference 6800XT which should be around $50 cheaper than the cheapest 3080, was listed at $915 and then sold out right away.


    Fuck 2020, there's bad news from every possible angle... Let's hope for a better 2021! ;)

      It's like the crypto mining epidemic all over again. Buying all the GPU's and hiking the prices up of whatever's left.

  13. Zotac as well. Galax/KFA2, Inno3D/Colorful, Gainward, Palit, PNY. There's quite a few of them
  14. Best you can do is try ordering an RX 6800 on 25th, when AIB models launch for sale. The best advice I can give you is try getting a model from Sapphire, XFX or PowerColor, as those AIBs have priority in GPU allocation from AMD, as they're AMD exclusive partners. Because of that other brands that also make Nvidia cards like MSI, Gigabyte or ASUS will probably be even harder to get.
