  1. Bottom line more or less same/comparable performance in traditional rendering, but with $50 more for the 3080 over the 6800XT you get -Better Ray Tracing -DLSS 2.0 -Overall better performance in non-gaming task For the moment I would still go with nVidia if you ask me, this sums it up pretty nicely: Credit to Optimum Tech's video. Curious to see how the platform will evolve in the future for gaming, especially considering that both new consoles have an AMD card.
  2. Looking for reccomandation - ideas. In the market for a Laptop under $700, but feel free to push up to $1000 if the idea of having it on sale at Black Friday is realistic (e.g. likely laptops with Ice Lake or Zen+ CPU). Laptop will be used only for web browsing, mail, word, excel. No apple and no tablets / hybrid products. Therefore, pretty much any hardware will fit, but priority is on buid quality. Size anywere from 13 to 15, although 15 with numpad would be preferred. I am tempted to go for the Huawei Matebook D15 series, t
  3. Unboxing and quick test on ShortCircuit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rfS8afbILm8
  4. To be honest I am both super excited and super skeptical about these products and I am looking forward to see actual reviews and performance test. For the moment it just seems "too good to be true". I am not saying that these results are technically impossible to achieve; It just feels reasonable to think that if you would really have something that is SO MUCH better (in any way!) than the what your competitors have you would either sell it for a much higher price (new MB Air is $999 while 5950X alone is $799..) or cut it down and save performance gain steps for future
  5. This means that Razer has now 5 (!) different models on their 13" lineup and despite this it feels like every version is somehow a compromise. I really like Razer because they build using aluminium, I own a Blade Stealth myself, but to me this is really nonsense and at this point it would have been much better to just have a laptop configurator, especially considering that the RAM is soldered to the mainboard and therefore not upgradable for all these models! To sum up (without considering "older" 10th-gen Intel CPU models still on sale at a discounted price by Razer)
  6. Here is de8auer's video, (as usual) one of the most interesting in my opinion. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3CEFQxsgZ20
  7. Nice catch, interesting. I actually remember that Linus said in a recent video that he wanted to do some "home tips videos", I may be wrong but I think it was the video about him installing the Ubiquiti cameras on his house.
  8. Developing and training such networks to make sure they are able to produce reliable result is complex and expensive. In addition to this, you need specific hardware (this is not necessarily expensive) on the end user side to achieve this kind of real time AI upscaling. This is why you don't get it advertised by (say) Netflix. Moreover, they rather invest their money in content creation than in upscaling technologies because for most users the (amount of) entertainment content matters more than the resolution - and anyway ISP in most countries already provide enough bandwidth
  9. "Moving 3D graphics that are far more complex and even have 3rd axis" that you see while gaming are a series of rendered images (-> frames) With DLSS 2.0 the shaders in RTX cards are free to render those images at a (aliased) lower resolution (i.e. 720p to target 1080p, therefore more frames produced in the same amount of time). Meanwhile the card's tensor cores are then used to upscale the image using an AI convolutional encoder in real time. They don't make "details out of thin air", they have an exhaustively trained deep neural network that learns by comparing the
  10. The videos from Roman are always original and super interesting, he is one of my favourite content creators at the moment. That said I think in the end is actually a pretty sketchy solution, if the goal is to have a second system for video capturing and streaming then I think it would be better to get a two-system case. In this configuration the NUC does not have a PCIe slot for capture cards so you are forced to use either USB or Thunderbolt (unless using an M.2 adapter, not sure if it is possible tho), there are no chances to upgrade or swap parts since the CPU is soldere
  11. I have the X27 (and tested the PG27UQ) and I find that the difference compared to HDR400 and even HDR600 monitors is huge. I bought this monitor because I play 4K HDR games at maxed out settings using 98Hz refresh rate with G-SYNC. In my opinion this is the use case that makes these monitor "worthy" (to be clear it is still a crazy, hard to justify purchase), because at the moment you can only accomplish this using one of these two monitors. That being said, there is not an incredible amount of (gaming) HDR content yet and if you are looking for 4K high refresh r
  12. Desk Right Left And yes the headphone cable is not long enough.
  13. You could use that but you need to cut away the unused pin for each header. There are Addressable RGB splitters with 3-pin header on sale, EKWB makes one but is for 6 devices which may result in a cable mess, this one for Cooler Master is for 3 devices https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07HQBCX9L/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_3J86Eb4Z2SZ8H EDIT: BTW I believe you should check if you can daisy-chain the ARGB header of the fans (I am not sure)
  14. Have a look at Rosewill, the RSV-R4000 or RSV-L4000.
  15. Yes, it it supposed to work that way.
