    Yeah, just speculating. I'm guessing after some findger pointing, AMD will eventually release a driver that works with it.

    Firefox Hardware Survey Puts AMD Ahead Of NVIDIA In Terms Of GPU Market Share
    https://wccftech.com/firefox-hardware-survey-puts-amd-ahead-of-nvidia-in-terms-of-gpu-market-share/

    The GPU market share as reported by Firefox are as follows:
    • Intel’s integrated GPUs leading at a solid 65.39%.
    • AMD GPUs following at 15.40%
    • NVIDIA GPUs close behind at 14.167%
    Probably Intel Optimus comes into play, many of those Intel laptops also have AMD / Nvidia dGPU's, and Firefox is running on the iGPU due to the low loading.

    This AIO is made for Threadripper, but can it handle it when overclocked?


    Tear-Down: Enermax Liqtech Threadripper Cooler



    I thought this tear down (Jayztwocents) of a water block running for a few months was enlightening, it had developed fractures that could lead to leaks and total failure down the road.

    The fluid apparently cleaned up the internal metals nicely, but a cracked water block @ ~4:10 negates that for me :)

    How well did the Primochill Vue fluid hold up?? Let's tear blocks apart and see!

    Considering the last couple of generations, I would be tempted to say that most machines running an iGPU in this hardware survey that actually has a dGPU installed in them are going to be NVidia.

    That's another great deal, one I wouldn't worry about waiting on at that price. BB's models are usually unique enough they won't be able to price match. And, BB also has a "must be in stock" at competitor rule, so that negates pricing matching in this situation too.

    Someone on Reddit said BB changed their model number so they wouldn't have to price match HP, but he finally got them to. They also told him they would have it on sale on Black Friday.

    Well, I think the parts build out is usually different too, but maybe it is just a part number subterfuge, sometimes. :)

    Yup, the HP sale is a "Pre-Black Friday" "Black Friday" sale, keep watching BB for their BF sale - only problem is they are usually limited to stock on hand, I'd get one now :)
