  1. Honestly? This is embarrassing, but I just never noticed.
  2. The M1 Mac Mini was an impressive machine with one major caveat – Apple removed the 10 gigabit NIC. We thought it was because they couldn’t make it work. We thought wrong… Or did we? Buy Apple Mac mini M1 (PAID LINK): https://geni.us/jJPvr
  3. AMD has had APUs for a long time, and in the middle of a GPU shortage, they’re more relevant than ever. So why are the best APUs they’ve ever made not for sale? Buy AMD Ryzen 7 Pro 4750G CPU (PAID LINK): https://geni.us/CxxvS Purchases made through some store links may provide some compensation to Linus Media Group.
  4. VirtualBox doesn't have this feature, no, but Linux KVM / vfio does and is also free. This is what we used for demonstration purposes in the video. If you're already up and running, then not much. You can remove the workarounds and have a "pure" VM, and you won't have to worry about something breaking due to changes in Nvidia's VM detection or what have you. It just makes your life easier, or more accurately, it makes your life as easy as it should have been in the first place. Either they felt it was "weird" to have no audio, they weren't aware the Kona was an EV
  5. For years, Nvidia has tried to artificially block GPU passthrough on GeForce cards, but now they’ve finally made a 180. Could this be the start of a new Nvidia? Buy NVIDIA RTX 3080 GPU (PAID LINK): https://geni.us/Si8kya Buy AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT GPU (PAID LINK): https://geni.us/UsUD Buy a Ryzen CPU (PAID LINK): https://geni.us/SOqq Buy an Intel CPU (PAID LINK): https://geni.us/AM9ILRm Purchases made through some store links may provide some compensation to Linus Media Group.
  6. Apple wasn’t even expected to HAVE an event this Spring, but they surprised us by not only doing one, but announcing new iPads, iMacs, and more! Mac Address video: Buy Apple iMac 24" (PAID LINK): Coming soon Buy Apple iPad Pro 2021 (PAID LINK): Coming soon Buy Apple iPhone 12 (PAID LINK): https://geni.us/fgfF6Y Buy Apple Airtags (PAID LINK): Coming soon Buy AppleTV 4K (PAID LINK): Coming soon Purchases made through some store links may provide some compensation to Linus Media Group.
  7. Photoshop has been around for so long that it’s synonymous with photo editing - So much so that Corridor Digital thinks they can do it with ANY version. Let's put that to the test... Check out Corridor Digital's video: https://youtu.be/8LkUzVexLTU
  8. AMD introduced Smart Access Memory with their Radeon 6000 series, and since then pressure has been on for Nvidia to respond. Now that they finally have, is it enough? Buy Nvidia RTX 3080 GPU (PAID LINK): https://geni.us/967U Buy AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT GPU (PAID LINK): https://geni.us/r1CP0F7
  9. Intel’s 11th-gen Core architecture wasn’t supposed to be on 14nm - But it is. Let’s find out what kinds of trade-offs they’ve had to make to make Rocket Lake take off… Buy Intel Core i9-11900K CPU (PAID LINK): Coming Soon Buy Intel Core i5-11600K (PAID LINK): Coming Soon Buy Intel Core i9-10900K CPU (PAID LINK): https://geni.us/NHuEp Buy Intel Core i5-10600K CPU (PAID LINK): https://geni.us/ItBS3p Buy AMD Ryzen 9 5900X CPU (PAID LINK): https://geni.us/zXQqjfu Buy AMD Ryzen 5 5600X CPU (PAID LINK): https://geni.us/vKAE
  10. AMD can’t help it sometimes. Nvidia makes a mistake and they just have to one-up them. With the timing of this launch, that’s exactly what the Radeon RX 6700 XT is - But could it still be good? Check out the Radeon RX 6700 XT at https://geni.us/8KOEHcP Buy an AMD GPU On Amazon (PAID LINK): https://geni.us/6gEz On Best Buy (PAID LINK): https://geni.us/CSmTN35 On WalMart (PAID LINK): https://geni.us/CSsiAFO On Newegg (PAID LINK): https://geni.us/JpJV1v On B&H (PAID LINK): https://geni.us/MjPA
  11. AMD’s EPYC forms the basis for Threadripper, and with Zen 3, it’s not even a fair fight with Intel anymore. How can Intel turn this around, and can AMD keep it going?
  12. ASUS has made a lot of RoG Phones since they first launched in 2018, and with each revision, it comes closer to perfection… Can innovation really keep moving fast enough to keep a smartphone interesting?
  13. In the middle of a crypto boom and silicon shortage, AMD has announced a new graphics card. Is that really such a good idea right now?
  14. I'll preface this by saying that testing for this video concluded at the beginning of February, before this list was available. Sponsored videos take a while in the pipeline. The games chosen for testing were informed by which games had the best performance improvement with SAM enabled in the RX 6800/6900 reviews. Yes, Nvidia is individually validating specific games, but if the theory is that resizable BAR alone is the reason for performance uplift, games that improve on AMD should also see similar improvement on Nvidia unless the driver is explicitly preventing them from using re
