    I start a thread to share various tech news regarding PCs (hardware or software) in order to make WGT experience more accessible to anyone.

    Beyond is right, beyond everyone's budget. £1,679 for a graphics card!!

    1600$ for 4090

    1200$ for 4080

    900$ for a scam 4080.

     

    As for the size:

    30 cm long, almost 14 cm width. Weight: 4 kgs+....

     

    If you want to install such a thing, you have to turn not to a technician but to a constructive company.

     

    Forgot the best part: 450 watts.

    If you go overclocking Scott, you need a high voltage substation connected...

    On another note, OBS 28 version is out with a bunch of new features, for those like playing around with streaming.

    But can you mine Bitcoins with it and have it pay for itself? 😎

    Yiannis, are you still running Windows 7, or have you upgraded to a Windows 11 PC?  Just curious (if you have upgraded) to know what you think of Win 11.  I know you have been (or were) holding on to Win 7 for awhile.

    I went with 10 4 months ago Sam. Win 11 in a couple of years for me. My new PC (which i plan building in a month or so) will have 10 as well.

    For those into streaming, perhaps Prism Live Studio is a good alternative for OBS. Very well built app.

    The next generation of CPUs has landed. AMD opened the dances with Zen 4 aka 7 series. The cheapest (7600) costs about 300 $.

    2 important notes.

    The new cpus need new motherboards, meaning 450,550,750 are not anymore compatible.

    The second thing is that all the new platforms for AMD 5 must work only with DDR 5 ram which are pretty expensive right now.

    The cost of the whole platform is pretty high (cpu + mobo + ram) plus the fact that the new series are power demanding meaning (maybe) a need for PSU change. As for their performance, are top notch.

    We wait Intel's response with 13 generation.
