  1. Zen 4 CPU prices fall dramatically, Ryzen 9 7950X at $574 WWW.TECHSPOT.COM Retailers have cut the prices on all Zen 4 CPUs this month. Europe and China saw prices fall by almost 30 percent for all... This is what prices should have been at launch IMO.
  2. These two benchmarks show what's going on here. Occasionally really great performance on newer titles, terrible on older ones. One thing this review missed is that Arc scales really well at higher resolutions and with RT. Digital Foundry covers that pretty well. I think they're starting to show promise. Still a long road ahead, but they'll get there eventually.
  3. Samsung unveils 5-year roadmap for processors, reaching 1.4nm by 2027 WWW.TECHSPOT.COM Samsung has long been one of the leading developers of semiconductors and processors, including being the first foundry to produce 3nm chips for its mobile devices. The...
  4. Nvidia announces GeForce RTX 40 series GPUs based on Ada Lovelace architecture WWW.TECHSPOT.COM According to Nvidia, an RTX 4090 with DLSS 3 is up to four times faster than an RTX 3090 Ti running DLSS 2, and... RT performance getting a major boost as expected.
  5. SSDs are about to get a lot cheaper as NAND prices plummet WWW.TECHSPOT.COM Analyst firm TrendForce writes that its latest investigation shows the NAND flash market failed to experience its... Good news for consumers is always welcome.
  6. Intel says it isn't abandoning Arc graphics cards, is working on the next generations WWW.TECHSPOT.COM Underwhelming performance, problems with DirectX11, and the need to enable Resizable Bar have been some of the... Definitely the right strategy IMO but also definitely a bumpy road. I'm sure it will pay off eventually.
  7. Intel Arc 3 A380 vs. AMD Radeon RX 6400 | TechSpot WWW.TECHSPOT.COM Here's another look at the Intel Arc 3 A380 GPU, but this time on a 51 game benchmark against AMD's $150... Maybe not completely horrible start, but definitely not good. It will be interesting to see how long it takes them to clean up this driver mess.
  8. Are Intel Arc graphics cards dead on arrival? WWW.TECHSPOT.COM Igor Wallossek of Igor's Lab writes that he has spoken to some dealers, potential distributors, and manufacturers in the European area about Intel's Arc cards, and there... Finally, a 1050Ti replacement... kinda... TLDR: As I understand it, there are two main reasons these new GPUs are struggling so much. One, Intel took a unique architecture approach that can be described as Intel going wide where competitors go tall, or vice versa. And the second reason being that, in part due to their unique architecture, the drivers and game optimization is down right terrible. Intel vastly underestimated the complexity of driver implementation, and they are realizing that they're years behind and offer no incentive to devs to optimize for their hardware. I think Intel will keep pressing on until they get it right, but it could be several years before they get there.
  9. Ukraine shuts down Russian bot farm operating one million fake accounts that spread disinformation WWW.TECHSPOT.COM The SSU writes that the farm's goal was to discredit Ukraine's leadership and destabilize the country's social and... Interesting to see some details about these bot farms. Lets not dive into politics please. Alt source: Ukraine takes down 1,000,000 bots used for disinformation WWW.BLEEPINGCOMPUTER.COM The Ukrainian cyber police (SSU) has shut down a massive bot farm of 1,000,000 bots used to spread disinformation on social networks.
  10. Rumored flagship Nvidia Lovelace card to pack 48GB of GDDR6X, 18,176 CUDA cores, and 800W TDP WWW.TECHSPOT.COM Regular leaker kopite7kimi posted a tweet about what he appropriately nicknamed "the beast." The card is... If this is where the 800w rumors are coming from, that's makes it more reasonable.
  11. You can replace DLSS with AMD FSR 2.0 in Cyberpunk 2077 with this mod WWW.TECHSPOT.COM According to its author, enabling FSR 2.0 via the mod just about doubled their 4K performance on a GTX 1080, to 45 fps. And, as you can... Mod link: FidelityFx Super Resolution 2.0 at Cyberpunk 2077 Nexus - Mods and community WWW.NEXUSMODS.COM FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.0 for Cyberpunk Very cool, hope to see this in more games, officially or via a mod. It's interesting that DLSS and DSR are so similar that it's this easy to add support for one when support for the other is already there. FSR has only been up on github for a few days. Update: Unofficial FSR 2.0 mod arrives to several more games including Dying Light 2, RDR 2 and Death Stranding WWW.TECHSPOT.COM After modders added FSR 2.0 to Cyberpunk 2077 by replacing the game's DLSS implementation, they...
  12. EU adopts Digital Markets Act, possibly forcing Apple to allow sideloading WWW.TECHSPOT.COM The European Commission adopted the Digital Markets Act (DMA) and the Digital Services Act (DSA) this week... I hope this kind of thing gets adopted everywhere.
  13. China has a renewed plan to make a homegrown OS that could replace the need for Windows WWW.TECHSPOT.COM According to a South China Morning Post report, the Chinese government is spearheading the development of a... Seems like the only way this could take off in China would be if they banned the sale of Windows... which seems like something China might do eventually.
  14. https://www.techspot.com/news/94980-elon-musk-tesla-spacex-face-258-billion-lawsuit.html
  15. Russian users report that they can't download Windows 10 and 11 WWW.TECHSPOT.COM Users in Russia are currently unable to download Windows 10 and 11 ISOs and installation tools from Microsoft's... Easy to get around with a VPN, but I'd still hate to be a gamer in Russia these days, or just be in Russia at all.
  16. Upcoming emulator plugin will add ray tracing, motion blur, widescreen support and more to classic N64 games WWW.TECHSPOT.COM Darío teased some of what is already possible on Twitter, noting that the project is still several months away... https://twitter.com/dariosamo/status/1532736513183731713?s=20&t=AyQ6tOBGeBC_iET1SBTjug Looks pretty cool.
  17. AMD confirms Ryzen 7000 CPU running game at 5.5 GHz was not overclocked WWW.TECHSPOT.COM This week has seen AMD show off its upcoming Zen 4 architecture at Computex. One of the exciting demos... Quite an impressive clock speed jump. I did not expect 5ghz+ from Ryzen.
  18. Microsoft "hybrid loop" shows the foundation for AI-powered client / cloud computing WWW.TECHSPOT.COM If there's ever a place where you're likely to hear the direction that computing and applications are headed, Microsoft's developer-focused Build conference is probably it. True to... Sounds like Microsoft is going to remain competitive in the cloud space. Not at all a surprise.
  19. EA is trying to sell itself to a streaming giant, according to reports WWW.TECHSPOT.COM About $100 billion has been spent on game studios and publishers in the past year. Microsoft spent the majority of... Already knew about Ubisoft, but surprised to hear EA also wants to be acquired. Maybe they should merge and someday we can have Tom Clancy's Battlefield for maximum monetization.
  20. AMD files patent to automate DRAM overclocking WWW.TECHSPOT.COM Memory overclocking isn't a new practice in the PC community. For years, enthusiasts have pushed the limits of... If this works well, this could be really useful.

  22. India tells VPN, cloud, and crypto companies to collect user data or face imprisonment WWW.TECHSPOT.COM As reported by Entracker, the new national directive from India's Computer Emergency Response Team, known as... Kinda defeats the purpose of a VPN...
  23. Windows 11 users can now adjust Auto HDR on a per-game basis WWW.TECHSPOT.COM Microsoft recently announced an update to the Windows 11 Game Bar, which adds an Auto HDR Intensity slider. The... Will have to try this out. List of games that support Auto HDR - PCGamingWiki PCGW - bugs, fixes, crashes, mods, guides and improvements for every PC game WWW.PCGAMINGWIKI.COM
  24. Nvidia said to be testing an RTX 40 series GPU that needs up to 900 watts WWW.TECHSPOT.COM With the RTX 3090 Ti graphics card, Nvidia squeezed the last bit of performance it could from the Ampere... I've seen a few mentions of Nvidia coming out with some really power hunger cards in its next lineup. This is the first I've heard about anything this high though.
