    Release date for the Asus ROG PG279QM?

    Only thing I don't like so far about this monitor is that the coating is noticeably more grainy than my other monitor when viewing anything with a white background

    Release date for the Asus ROG PG279QM?

    Under the monitor settings, Image -> Variable backlight. I would check that you don't have this turned on it was turned on by default for me and when my cursor was on a black background I could see a vertical column of backlight from the top to the bottom of screen. Kind of just looked like...

    New Alienware Q3 2020

    I bought a AW2721D and it came with bad backlight bleed. But also another issue where there was a faded colour band running all the way down the right hand edge of the screen. Decided to order a second one to see if that was any better, has less backlight bleed which is nice although still...

If the price was truly increased to balance the supply and demand I would guess the price would be much much higher unless the stock levels are better than everyone is expecting. If its the choice of...

    [SOLVED] MSI RTX 3080 low-ish Time Spy score in comparison to others?

    I've got the ventus 3080 and it gets 16500 graphics score on stock settings. I am still using a 4690k though so not if it that is causing a lower score (am at or almost at 100% cpu when running the benchmark), waiting for the new ryzen release and will be picking up one of those to replace...

    So I have been testing out the new card I just received and decided to test some cryptocurrency mining (etherium). There seems to be an issue with what I can only guess is either the memory or memory VRM overheating and causing thermal throttling as this is a memory intensive application. I...

    ** NVIDIA RTX 30 SERIES NOW ONLINE AT OVERCLOCKERS UK (3090 / 3080 / 3070) **

    I managed to get in an order in around 14:30. My first attempt the payment was declined. Second try went through a few minutes later. If I compare the order numbers between the two I can see there was 60-65 orders being made per minute around that time!
