  1. Very impressive work. Everything looks very solid. I watched the video with the trigger tesying and i understand what you try to achieve, but i find the clicks too noisy. I bought a Razer keyboard with mechanical keys and it was too noisy for me. I'm trying to play at home, with the wife reading or trying to sleep in the other room. Those loud clicks don't work. I returnex the keyboard two days later and replaced it with a Corsair K70, with hybrid "red cherry" keys that still have a very good feel to them, but are significantly more quiet. I understand that you try to acbieve that military feel and trigger pull weight, but military weapons don't always have the best triggers. Just look at the huge market for lighter, enhanced AR-15 triggers and you will see how many people like lighter than millspec triggers. Just an observation. I'm window shopping for new controllers and those loud clicks are too much for me as a casual gamer.
  2. Do you think all this companies would stop production and change capacitors if it was just a driver issue? And how do you know the auto boost was not tamed down?
  3. Another Zen3 leak. It's a leak, so take it with a grain of salt. AoS benchmark shows Ryzen 5800x outperforming the 10900k. https://wccftech.com/amd-ryzen-7-5800x-vermeer-8-core-16-thread-zen-3-cpu-benchmark-leaks-out/ Question to mods. Why was the a thread about CPUs merged with a thread about GPUs? Makes no sense.
  4. I don't think they can perform miracles, but TSMC's 7+ nm node is superior to the Samsung 8nm, that Nvidia is using. So theoretically a card with 80 compute units, on the 7+nm node could get close to Nvidia level performance.
  5. This Nvidia launch was pretty messed up. A lot of issues with crashes and no stock. They just released a new driver to fix issues with this crashes, but many people think they'll just limit the maximum boost the cards can achieve. Their last two series did follow Intel's pricing strategies and while their cards are fast, they are not exactly power efficient. Just look at the huge jump in power consumption over last generation. Lot of people will have PSU issues with this cards.
  6. What is certain is that all this huge cards with axial flow cooling design do create a lot of dead areas with poor airflow. Nvidia really did good with this cooler design. The blower fan, in the back of the card has a huge exhaust and the front fan moves the air behind the card. It is warmer air than the ambient temperature, but it's still cooler than the temperature of a working CPU or ram module. That blow through fan will also help with keeping the m.2 SSD's cool under the graphics card.
  7. Desktop Zen3 Ryzen CPUs will be announced/released next week and there are rumors that the 12 core Ryzen 5900x will come with 5.0 GHz boost clock and 150W TDP. The CPU is also rumored to bring a 20%IPC improvement, on top of the 400MHz boost advantage over the 3900x. https://wccftech.com/amd-ryzen-9-5900x-vermeer-12-core-24-thread-cpu-allegedly-up-to-5-ghz-150w-tdp/ Exciting times indeed. 😀 I'm very curios about the gaming performance of Zen3. If they are really great i may be tempted to swap my 3950x.
  8. Some youtubers are saying AMD may land a 16 GB card with traditional gaming rasterization performance betwen 3080 and 3090, but weaker at ray tracing. If they can manage that, they will move a boat load of them. Exciting times. Can't wait to see the reviews and benchmarks. My last Radeon was made in Canada, back when ATI was a Canadian Company. After the dirty tricks pulled by Nvidia with this last two series, i may buy an AMD card just to give Nvidia the finger.
  9. Some new leaks hint AMD's Big Navi may be a decent card, even for 4k gaming. Some people in the comments are trying to guess the possible performance, based on released information and many think RTX3080 performance level is within AMD's reach. And this cards will have lower power requirements, due to more advanced TSMC 7nm+ node. Add to that16GB of GDDR6 and, if priced right, this cards could bring backhat good old Radeon. https://videocardz.com/newz/amd-navi-21-to-feature-80-cus-navi-22-40-cus-and-navi-23-32-cus " This GPU would allegedly feature up to 80 Compute Units (5120 Stream Processors if each CU has 64 cores). The variant listed in macOS11 appears to have a boost clock at 2050 MHz with Navi 21A variant and up to 2200 MHz with Navi 21B variant. With a boost clock of 2200 MHz, the Navi 21B would have a shader performance of 22.5 TFLOPs. For comparison, with NVIDIA’s new dual SM architecture, the GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card has a maximum FP32 throughput of 29.8 TFLOPs.
  10. There's a 20GB 3080 coming out after AMD's release. Don't know how it's going to be called or what else is boosted on top of the extra memory.
  11. I got mine when it was released, back in 2010, so i don't know what is available now at 2560×1440. Mine has only 60Hz refresh rate and i overclocked it a bit. I may swap it for a 4k screen soon. If you get a 1440p screen get at least 27 inches. 27 to 35 inches is a good size for 1440p. You can also look at Ultra wide screens. 3440x1440. Quite a few Il-2 players swear by them. You'll get a bit of performance hit compared to 1440p, but you get a lot of extra real estate. If uou get ultra wide, 34-36 inches is a good size for that resolution.
  12. Steve at Gamers Nexus is tearing Nvidia up for their RTX 3090 8k gaming claim.😅 https://youtu.be/Xgs-VbqsuKo
  13. My last Radeon was a 9700Pro, made by ATI, back when ATI was a Canadian company. This time I'll see how will play out. I wouldn't mind an AMD card if the performance is there.
