Our headlining item talks AMD semi-custom APUs that will set the tone for the next-gen consoles. After this, we talk about how Der8auer recently posted his RIP GN results (congrats on the score, Roman) and how we need to respond. You can find that on Der8auer's channel. Intel is also in the news, talking about the Spoiler exploit and H10 SSDs. IDC and Gartner are also talking about Intel CPU shortages (again), this time aligning in their beliefs about the wider impact to market.

Only 1.6 GHz? Poor console gamers..

Why do I keep getting shampoo ads on GN videos ?

I can't help but wonder why a vulnerability that requires administrator and physical access to the system is considered a vulnerability at all.
You have much bigger problems when you have security issues with a person that has that kind of access.
Oh man i still remember playing browser games with shockwave. Good times.

The new IE 11 bug is supposedly allow them to take over your pc. If IE 11 is installed and enabled on your device and even if you use another web browser, they too become affected to that IE 11 bug.
About Intel iGPUs, I own a "dual graphics" (Nvidia Optimus) laptop. If I'm not running anything that wakes up the discrete GPU or have no external monitor plugged in, Steam will only record that I have an HD 630 iGPU because the GTX 1070 is on a sleep state. And even if the GTX 1070 is running it will still show that I also have the HD 630 since it still has to "pipe" the GTX 1070 framebuffer to display it on the laptop's screen.

EDIT: I'm pretty wrong, this is the output of Steam's "System Information", and it doesn't even show the GTX 1070 while having two external monitors plugged into mini-DP ports that connect directly to the dGPU (I have the circuit schematics and the only output the HD 630 has is the eDP for the laptop's display):

What kind of recommendation can gamernexus give on cooling for rtx 2070/2080/2080ti cards?
I have a zotac amp 2080, and the cooling is effecticesure, but once those fans pick up more then half their speed they are VERY noisy, I'd like to know if I'd be able to get a decent aftermarket cooler for the card.can we get a video on that?

Shockwave...now there's a name I haven't heard in a long time
Hudson Jackson II
Every day, I find something in the news that gives me yet one more reason to avoid Intel.
shockwave is NOT flash & was extremely rare to see on websites, it was originally used for gpu+storage access
Cnn is Fakenews
Windows 10 has lower adoption rates because it is still GARBAGE!. Garbage Tiles designed for touchscreens, because that what desktop users want.
CPU "Shortage" yeah...shortage. Sure.
Ariel Velasquez
What about MSI and AMD problem with zen 2 support for X370 and B350 Motherboards?
Sean Crees
I mean, why get the 9990XE now when we can just wait for the 9999XXX?
Michael Mast
I ordered some small form factor PCs last year, got them last month thanks to Intel. The AMD variant uses old A9 APUs and they have problems with Igel OS and VMware BLAST :-(
Two topics this time around:

~ RTX Functionality on Pascal: As I do not have a Pascal series Quadro at my disposal to test with the new drivers, it would be nice to know if RTX functionality is capable of working with the Tesla P100 and Quadro P4000 to P6000 and GP100 cards, for if it does and it works extremely well, this might help out in prolonging their lifespan deep into the point where Nvidia, PNY, and Hewlett~Packard are no longer selling Pascal series Quadro and Tesla GPUs, effectively giving them purpose to purchase over their GeForce counterparts from that generation if money is not an obstacle and consumers don't want to get an RTX 4000 or Tesla T4 for the time being.
~ 9990XE: To know now that the 9990XE is no longer confined to the Auction Only market truly shows how important having 05 Gigahertz (Stable) on all cores is to the Consumer and Enthusiast base, this chip is easily one of the hottest and most brutally power consuming that Intel has released (after all, it is simply a heavily overclocked 9940X with extreme wattage and heating issues; wishfully Ice and Meteor Lake X will be significantly more bearable on the power draw here, Skylake was easily the worst of the current era when it came to ridiculous temps and TDP) and will be what'll hold over many people while they wait for Ice/Tiger/Alder and Meteor Lake to come along; the only problem that I worry about with the 9990XE though will be its overall supply, not because of the chip shortage at Intel, but because of Prebuilt Desktops that will have it, I can only imagine how much of these Intel will be pumping out on a normal basis before Skylake X is retired outright and if my worries on this are justifiably proven true, then the 9990XE could remain in a similar spot as the 5775C on Amazon at this time: Reasonably priced at launch, but only badly spiking in cost as it ages over time, effectively making it pointless to purchase when compared to a modern alternative (I can see the Meteor Lake~based 13900K and 13990XE easily being able to deliver far better results than the 9990XE in this regard, come 2023 and '24), it would be a shame if this were to happen but that is a very firm possibility under the current circumstances.

The €12,999 is INCLUDING taxes but likely not shipping. EU companies that sell to consumers are required by law to include taxes in the prices they show.
Christ, Steam survey..... That is giving false info, it counts all PC's also the ones no longer in use. Even 10 year old systems are accounted for, no good representative of current systems.
Talking about AMD making a add for Gigabyte Aorus Intel Z390 MoBo???

AMD Ryzen Precision Boost Overdrive HW News - AMD's Next Console 1 day ago   36:20

This deep-dive explains PBO vs. Precision Boost 2, including benchmarks with test data on differences between stock, PBO, and AutoOC.
Support GN via the store! https://store.gamersnexus.net/

Article: https://www.gamersnexus.net/guides/3491-explaining-precision-boost-overdrive-benchmarks-auto-oc

In this video, we're exploring Precision Boost Overdrive, Precision Boost 2 / XFR, and AutoOC features on the AMD Ryzen 3000 series CPUs. The first half of the video explains the differences between PB2 and PBO, talks about what Precision Boost Overdrive is supposed to do, what features are technically part of (and not part of) PBO, and how the feature is theoretically supposed to be used. The second half talks benchmark data, differences, and about whether it's "worth it" to overclock via Precision Boost Overdrive. Testing uses the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X and AMD Ryzen 5 3600, with the MSI X570 Godlike and Gigabyte X570 Master boards used as the primary test platforms.
