    Question M.2 NVMe SSD - any expediency for office tasks and gaming?

    Hi guys, I've heard that SSD speed boost through the NVMe protocol mainly applies to sequential data reads/writes (e.g. 4K editing) rather than to random reads/writes (e.g. gaming, office apps). In other words the article claimed that for random reads/writes NVMe is not much faster than SATA...

    [SOLVED] What is the best cpu for the new RTX 3080/3090

    As the title says what would be the best graphics card. Intel doesn’t yet support pcie 4.0 so would an Intel chip become a bottleneck? What about AMD which does support it? Will it make a noticeable difference?

    [SOLVED] Will rtx 30 series need PCIE 4.0

    I just bought a b450 motherboard since I didn't really want to pay more for a b550 or x570 board. I am wondering if the next RTX series will need PCIE 4.0. From my research it looks like it probably won't and also I would only get something like an rtx 3070 or 3060 super.
