    RSI - Andromeda (Constellation)

    Even though I'm not an "owner" of the Connie, imho, it is the most versatile ship series in the line-up. Andromeda first, followed by the Taurus. Next up are the Cutlasses (Black) and Freelancers (base model then the MAX). Why? Cargo capacities and potential combat effectiveness.

    Consider that there are likely variants of the Idris based on function. This increases their number. You'd have to have more than one Bengal, Javelin, or Idris and enough combat so adrons and support wessels in a system with which to counter a significant incursion.

    Ongoing Discussion Arctic Cooling sells headphones?

    I used headsets like those in the military for, umm, special purposes. They were comfortable and durable. This is a novelty for them, to be sure.
  7. I was looking at cooling solutions and Arctic Cooling is selling these for $50
  8. I checked just to see how the 2700X fared against the i9-9900K This will not dissuade Intel fans. The i9-9900K is faster, by an overall 16%. Of course Intel does single-core better. Cost for the 2700X - $280 Cost for the i9-9900K - $500 Whilst the 6 core, 12 thread 8700K beats the 2700X in single and quad core performance by about 10%, the 2700X wins on multi-core workloads. PC gaming and desktop performance is generally governed by four or less cores but the 2700X offers unbeatable value for money for workstation users. Although the 9900K has around a 16% effective speed advantage over the 2700X, the Ryzen 2700X offers better value for money for most users.
  9. I upgraded from 2xGTX970 SSC to a single EVGA GTX1070ti Gaming for $400. I go with EVGA because of their cooling tech. When I had the GTX560 and GTX760, I used Arctic Cooling replacement cooler tech. The 60-series GTX cards are ok consumer GPUs, but they were lacking so I started using the 70-series. The 80-series were too costly for me and the 1080's are currently commanding prices a bit too much (imho) for what performance they give you relative to the RTX cards. But, gotta upgrade when you need to or if you can. Not an easy decision. 3 Reasons Why AMD's Radeon 7 Is Such A Big Deal

    At this juncture, I don't think even CIG knows.

    Ongoing Discussion GPU comparisons: GTX1070ti vs RTX2070

    AMD Radeon VII AMD provided benchmarks for the Radeon VII full line up for 2019?
  13. I recently purchased a GTX1070ti and then they come out with the RTX2070. Do I feel gipped? price of the RTX2070 compared to the GTX1070ti: lowest seen prices: $550 vs $360 Nope, not at all. Sure, the 2070 has GDDR6 mem over the GDDR5 the 1070ti has, but the hardware points I worry about have negligible differences. Granted, while the RTX does not depend on CUDA cores so much (the nature of Ray Tracing), I'm not one for the new bells and whistles if I do not have a practical need for them. The above link is just one comparison and I just focused on the technical specs and not actual performance. This second link is a start for that. The benchmarks show a 78% increase in multi-rendering over the 1070ti. The RTX2060 may be someone else's entre to the RTX world, but I have avoided the 60-series nvidia cards as consumer level performance GPUs. Nothing surprising in this graphic: I am not authoritative....
