    And? Still much less power consumption than mining. Also you are completely wrong if you think everyone can make money off of cryptocurrency. That would require you to have a new gpu that is efficient enough to mine it and live in an area where energy costs are low enough to make a profit. Also the gaming industry employs a ton of people if you go from the mouse and keyboard business to game developers not to mention esports players and streamers. If you are going to say that gaming doesn't make money then you would be mistaken.

    Two tests? Dude look at the benchmarks again, it's worse or at best tied with Skylake in most of the game benchmarks, and in several of the other benchmarks it ties with the 9900K. If that's all Intel can muster after five years I'd consider that pretty pathetic.
     
    I don't know why you're so hellbent on fanboying over a multibillion dollar corporation.

    We can all relate to you only being able to afford a 970 because we all learn to accept what we can and can't afford. At the end of the day I think we're all just proud to have built the best pc we can and don't care what somebody else has. However, that's all under normal market conditions. Current conditions seem to be a result of increased demand from ruthless miners so it should be obvious why that's drawing the spite of gamers. To be clear, nobody is asking for your compassion or to share nicely because we all accept the rules of supply and demand, but if you're that incapable of social nuance and can't put yourself in somebody else's shoes then you really are a complete robot brain. 
    Passing the vibe check implies somebody has a more socially conscientious, chill personality, somebody you could stand to hang out with. And yeah on a gut level I think a gamer is more entitled to a graphics processing unit but I won't deny the economic soundness of it all and won't bring it up as a valid argument against mining. Meanwhile you're just regurgitating the same condescending points over and over, lecturing us about needs versus wants, supply and demand, and so and so on like we're still in junior high. I've no intention of ever forgiving mining culture because the kind of personality it attracts doesn't even come close to passing the vibe check. Feeling like I've really said enough on this and I know moonzy will insist on having the last word so whatever.

    The performance is disappointing, it shouldn't be slower than skylake even while GPU limited. Rocket Lake makes no sense unless you're going to use AVX-512, or if you have to build a PC now and can't use a Ryzen CPU because of the GPU shortage.
    I see people trying to excuse the power consumption or performance, its embarrassing for sure if Intel can't get ahead of AMD with a CPU that requires a new motherboard to take advantage of pci-e 4.0, and only compares to a significantly cheaper 5600X.

    It shouldn't be performing worse than the chip from 5.5 years ago in any cases, and the fact that it does is notable and remarkable.

    Blademaster91 got a reaction from FakeKGB in Does anybody know if the GTX series 10s on amazon for 80 bucks are fake or not?   
    Probably fake, most sellers know better considering how even the GTX 10 series GPUs are worth almost what they sold for new, used cards are so expensive because of the mining boom.

    Yeah I see people saying just buy an APU, but good luck finding one at all or for a reasonable price because of the current market and shortages. The 3400g is decent for some light gaming but i wouldn't spend $200 on it.

    Maybe, but I doubt banning mining farms would do much, people would just buy up GPUs to mine in their basement instead which I think is happening anyway because GPUs have been unavailable since last October, except miners which are still obtaining plenty of GPUs.
    Besides the scalpers, mining is likely the main cause of shortages, considering even used GTX 10 series GPUs are worth what they were new on places like ebay.

    I'm no expert on crypto stuff, so I don't comment on it too much, but from what I know about it, I think cryptocurrencies shouldn't exist. I just hate the idea that people around the world are trying to reduce carbon emissions in all sorts of ways, sometimes even investing large sums of money, and then there's a bunch of people burning up a huge amount of power in these computers doing nothing useful at all, just to make what seems to me like a marginal amount of profit. Power that may as well be spent to do actual useful work. Imagine all that energy being used for scientific research for instance.

    Good on them. I wish more governments would do the same. Cryptocurrency is legitimately a problem when it comes to world power consumption and doesn't offer anything of value over normal fiat currency. No need to waste such large amounts of energy and resources on something so pointless. Definitely has a huge negative impact on the environment.

    This is really disappointing, Kingston HyperX headsets are some of the better gaming headsets in my opinion.
    I expect that HP will probably cut cost on the HyperX brand.

    Sure replacing the thermal paste and thermal pads fixes the performance issue, but the average gamer buying a used GPU isn't going to do that, also the only GPU brand I can think of that doesn't void your warranty for taking apart a GPU is EVGA.
