    Tbf, Cyberpunk doesn't utilize AMD cpu's properly. There's a workaround for this that can add an additional 10% fps by enabling better use of SMT.

    Head of Intel: "Some software runs faster on an Intel because some greedy people were offered cash to write their software with the Intel compiler, the one that secretly detects who's processor it is first before deciding if top speed is absolutely necesary. The benefit is that people can put food on the table. I thought it was illegal to avoid tax and bride people to only use your products. So, pay tax, be honest about how much tax we've actually paid, don't bribe anyone and stop slapping a new number on the same processors every time a tiny competitor launches a new processor. Got it. Thanks for the advice. Why oh why didn't anyone tell me this years ago? There has been a tiny whisper that someone was waving juicy college-student checks near the Dell, Hewlett Packard, Acer, Lenovo dinner tables if they correctly predicted which trucks are going to deliver the wrong processors to their factories. Incidentally, the people around Germany got to see college students Media Markt (Europe's biggest computer seller) take part in the daytime television game show "Guess the Truck". A strong slow aroma drifted over the fence from a neighbour's barbeque that if Intel eliminated their competition then only the LATEST Intel SSD will work with the newest processors but it was smokey sausages. Luckily security cameras caught the students Userbenchmark and PassMark putting their greedy hands into the padlocked Intel cookie jar, again. I don't feel safe any more. Help! Police! Come and get them! Officer, help! He's got me by the neck! I can't breathe. Help! What is that? That's the biggest knife I've ever seen. Even my legs aren't that long. Help! Help! Yeah! I managed to grab the knife off him. No, no, unfortunately, he's got it back again. Helllp!!! I'm too young to die. Oh thank you, officer. You saved me! Yeah, you got him. He's walking off in cuffs now. Good work, boys. I've never been so scared. You criminals never learn. So, the moral of the story is never use deceit to steal from hard-working ordinary people. How could I be so stupid? How is it that Userbenchmark and PassMark make any money? I think I've finally figured it out: the thefts always seem to happen prior to another version release of their software. Now, they claim it's all a coincidence. Yeah right. Coincidence my arse. However, fear not. I think our new ten-million-dollar security system will finish off all of their update plans. So long, guys. It's been nice knowing you. This is a private message for our fanboys ONLY: maybe, just maybe, there's a teeny tiny bit of truth to the idea that someone else might make faster processors? Ouch! Get off my leg. How do you get rid of this thing? Yes, I know, in five minutes' time its mother will need to feed it with a live alligator. Can't it just eat some pizza? I also have a famous mega family but right now I think I need to visit some of my rich uncles, uncle Googie and uncle Amazy, to pass on some of these new tips so that they don't get into trouble with the law. Some people describe Amazy as an ancient alien space coffin. This is a perfect insult. Oh and by the way uncle Amazy is the one who sells all our processors out of his garage, along with several fridge magnets. At least that's what he told me. He says that the garage is where he keeps his 1535 cars but as none of them have worked for the last 14 years he's been getting free rides from auntie Ubee's cars. I really think it's time she starts paying tax too. Oh and you can keep your money too. We don't need any more of it, thank you very much."

    Question for any of you in the know. I have a very old gaming rig. It has an AMD 6950 HD video card. I want to build a new rig but the GPUs are hard to find right now. I was wondering If I was to just get all the other parts of the build, simular to one of the above builds, Would my old 6950 fit in those above or current motherboards? Would the pins be different or other issues? The card still works great, I would be happy to just use my old card in the new build until I can get my hands on a new GPU. If anyone could give me some feedback I would really appreciate it.
