Consider myself lucky

Sometime in November of 2020, a couple of months after the launch of Nvidia’s latest 3000 series GPUs, I saw someone on Carousell trying to sell an RTX 3080 from a pre-built gaming pc that he bought. He wasn’t interested in using it. Despite being in a prebuilt, with the GPU used and fixed in... Continue Reading →

NVIDIA GPU shortage to persist throughout 2021

Yesterday NVIDIA announced three new Ampere GPUs, the 3070, the 3080 and the bfgpu, the 3090.

Some clarity to my PC upgrade path

For some weeks now I have come with multiple iterations on my new gaming PC rig. Each iteration is an idea as to how my upgrade path will follow. Some of which became more expensive, some of which became cheaper. Each iteration follows a different idea of what it means for me to upgrade. What... Continue Reading →

I think I can safely say that the tipping point for that decision came about when I impulsively bought 2 EVGA GTX 1070 SC Gaming ACX 3.0 GPU at a relatively competitive price... Continue Reading →

PC Show come and gone

Yesterday I went to the PC show. It was crowded, but not overly so. Surprisingly, it was walkable and I rarely had to squeeze among the throng of crowds. Held in Expo halls 5 and 6, I was impressed by the M1 booth. It was huge. I cannot remember the last time the M1 was... Continue Reading →
