    ASIO, WASAPI, Direct Sound... is there any difference in sound quality?

    AMD Ryzen 9 Vs. Core i3 10100

    Why are you comparing a 5900x to an El cheapo i3 10100/10105? The are not even competition. 5900x should be compared with a 12700K.

    Yep it has a 512 zone local dimming system which means extremely high contrast ratios. Plus it goes searingly bright. I'd have bought this if I hadn't bought a 4k/144 monitor just last month.

    Confusion regarding a pre-owned Headphone Zone order

    Careers and Employment Thread

    I apply on LinkedIn and get a call every single time. In fact my current job was from a LinkedIn listing. Even the previous one was from a LinkedIn listing. In December I got an offer from two of the FAANG companies via the LinkedIn application method.

    Corsair offering inferior PSU as a replacement

    Corsair offering inferior PSU as a replacement

    You will still be below 1kW. 6900 XT even in crazy oc state will consume less than a reasonably oc'ed 3090(~2GHz boost clocks) like mine. The AMD cards this gen are rather tame this present gen. I have an Rx 6800 in my secondary rig and it doesn't even get hot at 2.5-2.6 GHz boost clocks. In...

    Corsair offering inferior PSU as a replacement

    It is more or less same multi-core performance from both. In single core, the 12400f is way ahead.
