    2016+ CPU/GPU News

    NVIDIA Reveals GeForce RTX 3060: Launching Late February For $329 RTX 3080 = 10 GB RTX 3070 = 8 GB RTX 3060 Ti = 8 GB RTX 3060 = 12 GB Strange things happening over at Nvidia. If you manage to find RTX 3060 at MSRP, you might want to snatch it up. Intel Previews 11th Gen Core Rocket Lake: Core i9-11900K and Z590, Coming Q1 Intel will retake the gaming crown from AMD... barely.
  2. Is DDR5 with on-die ECC the fix?
  3. No TDM mentions in the El Reg comment section yet. ;`(

    Undervolting might be as important as the temperature. Don't overvolt, do undervolt and underclock.

    Anything below 70°C should be fine, over 80°C is usually where thermal throttling will happen (e.g. Raspberry Pi 4), and some parts are designed to run at as high as 90-100°C. Insisting on 50°C is overkill... or underkill.

    The Dark Mod will have raytracing before the year 2077.

    LowSpecGamer is a nice channel. Subscribe or bookmark it. It has a non-U.S. focus which is rare (U.S. gets almost everything cheaper). It's been a slow few months for that channel since the pandemic has jacked up all tech prices, Ryzen 5000 prices are elevated, and desktop Renoir is OEM only. Chips like the 3300X have virtually disappeared. Hopefully things improve next year with a wave of new APUs and more competition from Intel.
  9. It's hard to say what's worse, the greed underpinning the decision, or the blatant lie about "many messages from gamers".

    I didn't say Cyberpunk has full raytracing. I said you could see games rendering everything with just raytracing within 10 years. With the caveat that it will still be sparse ray tracing with a denoising algorithm.

    Real time raytracing is here to stay. RDNA 2 GPUs have it, and more importantly the new Xbox and PS5 have it, so that will be targeted by developers for the next 5-7 years. AMD's GPU implementation has as many "ray accelerators" as compute units (e.g. RX 6800 XT has 72 compute units and 72 ray accelerators), which could mean only one or the other can be active. I'm not sure. Nvidia's Ampere did not increase raytracing performance as much as was expected (about 2x instead of 4x?). I think they can fix it with Hopper, which should be a multi-chip module design. Actually, Hopper, RDNA 3, and

    Don't play any game on day 1. Don't install any OS updates on day 1, etc.
