I have TUF B550m for three days, but PCIe 4.0 is not working :( My 3070 + 5600x is working only PCIe 3.0 x16 or 4.0 x8. If I turn on 4.0 x16, graphic cart start to be very slow. I can´t explain it. I tried everything. :-/

Upgrading a desktop is not pointless... ...but upgrading as often as new generations of hardware are released, that is most definitely pointless for the vast majority of users. Yearly upgrades? Get out. I would love to see an estimate of how much resources were wasted world-wide by gamers buying new hardware pointlessly.

I still use a late 2012 27” i7 iMac. It originally came with a 1TB Fusion Drive but today it has 9TB of internal storage, 1TB SSD and 8TB HDD. I also upgraded the internal AirPort WiFi/Bluetooth card to a latter generation one with ac WiFi. It runs great.

As someone with a 1080Ti... I see no reason to upgrade unless it's a 3080 MINIMUM. Everything else is not enough of a performance increase to justify. That's without even taking into consideration the inflated prices; That's just the nail in the coffin. No yeah; I think I'll be fine. Maybe I can get a good used 3080 in a year or two.

I can't say this is not the Lambo I enjoy. A guy unafraid to show his mistakes then shows Atari Frogger level educational material. It hits me in the face Lambo because I know this is your way of playing nice when what you really wants to do is put Scalpercorp on ice. Lambo I'm IEEE , take short walk with me , I know what you're really after , performance through the rafter , filling us with joy and laughter , well played.

CS:GO has smaller texture packages.. There's a lot less clutter, no hair movements, no large amounts of clutter on the screen that moves around, leafs, and whatnot.. So it is, essentially, a lot better at just moving those textures and inputs around, if it just gets more space to do it in.

My theory is, it’s not that cs:go utilizes the lanes well, it’s just that you’re able to hit such high frames due to its low demand that in order to hit those 400+ frame rates, you’re transferring so much more data per second.

A *theory* is an idea that is well understood and supported by data. It's as close as science gets to "fact" or "truth". You're talking about a hypothesis. I understand that colloquially, theory is used in place of the word hypothesis, but to literally say "A theory is just a theory" is to completely ignore the primary meaning of the word theory.

Maybe they should start using a bit of putty at the bottom to hold it in place. That would have avoided it dropping to the ground at 0:46. That's what gamersnexus does if you hadn't noticed in shots of motherboards and cpu's in b-roll footage.

It would actually make more sense to test it with lower grade cards with less on card memory (instead of those top of the line ones, where they have so much of it that they can fit almost all of assets required by entire levels) in more open world games that do a lot of streaming...
