  1. Banned because they can't even center their signature image...
  2. We might get a Zen3+ that will only work on 500 even furthering that fragmentation, but then Zen4 might come out with DDR5 on a new AM5 socket. I doubt they will do the whole AM3+ thing again at this point. There were some pretty major changes from Zen1/+ to Zen 2 in the form of the I/O die being separated from the cores themselves which would definitely cause some pretty creative firmware writing. AMD could have foreseen this with a little bit of thought and made sure all motherboards were using big enough BIOS ROM chips to support all the families, but they were probably thinki
  3. Source Interesting article for those that really like some of the more technical details of mechanical keyboards. It wasn't really a news article so I'm posting it in here instead.
  4. Glad to help, what did you decide on parts wise? Also feel free to post a build log for it here as well.
  5. I didn't see a good breakdown in the article about business/commercial sales vs. consumer sales. Since Laptops were the main chunk of the sales, that would lead me to believe it could have been more businesses and school purchasing laptops for work/school from home purposes.
  6. So for Minecraft, I just found out the hard way that you do not want to run Minecraft in any sort of VM at all. If I had the budget to build a dedicated little gaming host, I would probably grab something like the Ryzen 5 3600x for a nice amount of thread overhead as you can run variants like PaperMC with Dynmap that actually can use more then a couple threads for certain tasks like chunk generation, networking and Dynmap web map generation. I ran a Space Engineers server for a little while a few years back so I don't know how it has changed since then, but the server itself would
  7. Source The source article has a great table of all the current BIOS updates for boards. Most manufacturers have BIOD updated that include the required AGESA to provide basic support for Ryzen 5000 series and MSI seems to be ahead of the game with AGESA BIOS updates already. No news yet on available Beta BIOS Updates from any of the motherboard board vendors yet. It is some poor marketing to still be selling 400-series chipsets that won't support the 5000 series Ryzen CPU's, and lots of already 400-series owners might be a little annoy
  8. Welcome to the site, glad to have you aboard.
  9. Glad to have you here, hopefully we can all build this place up as a great community.
  10. Source NVMe Raid is going to be interesting to see come out. With the sheer amount of data that can pass through NVMe SSD's, it might make sense to offload that processing to some dedicated hardware while also increasing flash density in a system that has unused PCIe x8 or x16 slots. Here's hoping that NVMe Raid is robust enough, but even Marvell themselves seem to be pushing this for use as a boot device. To me, that implies putting the actual important data on other types of redundant storage.
  11. I'm going to guestimate ~200W under continuous gaming loads with peaks up to ~275W. The 350W brick might have just been the next option up. I can't see Sony wasting R&D budget on the Power Supply and would instead source an ODM for that and looking at Laptop power bricks for rough sizes, my 240W Dell power supply is the largest I've seen so 350W might just be the next size that makes sense to design and build at scale to help save money by an ODM. It also helps that it would have a larger safety margin when the power brick gets inevitably thrown behind the entertainment unit along with
  12. Source That heatsink + Liquid Metal is quite nice. Also that large black plastic skeleton/air diverter looks nice and durable too adding some good strength to the structure. That added strength is almost wasted though as gone are the days of bringing your console to a buddy's house or to camp because this console is huge and has some pretty high power draw.
