  • As a former Central Office technician for AT&T I cringe at videos like this. We were subject to disciplinary action if we were caught handling circuit boards without our ESD protection wrist straps on. Training videos showed that discharges of only four thousand volts could damage components. Such discharges could not even be felt by the handler. The damage might not be instant but could take months or years before the component failed. The company provided data that showed million of dollars lost on damage caused by ESD. People, don't do what the presenter in this video is doing.

  • Intending to get a Geforce 3080 for my upcoming new system. Planning on powering a 1440P monitor using DLSS to upscale from 1080P so as to still get good framerates despite the raytracing hit, for those games that will support DLSS anyway. That should give me in excess of 60 FPS on pretty much anything we will see for the next few years, and if in four or five years the FPS suffers too much, I'll just drop it down the minuscule notch from Ultra. ;-) In fact I might even right from the start juggle between Ultra and High settings to see how the FPS and graphics experience balance feels for any given game.

  • I've now had two Intel QVLC SSDs and I have to recommend you stay away from them. They;re popular because they're cheaper than the competition and still from a "name brand " but they hit an absolute performance wall if you're moving large files, installing windows, or if it's low on space. PCPer did a review of their first gen NVME drives (I think they're just called the 600p) and showed that in lots of common scenarios they have slower write speeds then mechanical drives, and I hit that problem fairly regularly when I had one. I have a 660p now, hoping they had resolved the issue, but they have not. Once you fill that SLC cache it's painful.
