RTX 4060Ti Review: Part 1- Pricing and Rasterization Performance

  I’m not going to waste time with a long and fluffy opening. Nvidia has launched the RTX 4060Ti and it has not gone well. By now, must people know the RTX 4060Ti has been a let down in terms of performance for the price. Let’s start off by looking at why. Why are Gamers Upset? “The Dwarves delved too greedily and too deep. You know what they awoke in the darkness…shadow and flame” – Lord of the Rings. The raw performance has been disappointing. The bus bandwidth and memory size has been disheartening. The price to performance has been …

L91 Builds Lazer3D LZX-8

  With the announcement of several smaller RTX 4060 and 4060Ti GPUs, it’s a good time to look at some builds using similar sized cards. I also need to filter through the backlog of YouTube videos I should have posted links for. In this case (Ha!), we have L91, seen above prepping for his career as a F1 Crew Chief, performing a nicely balanced build-up of a Lazer3D LZX-8. Lazer3D is one of the earliest custom builders for the SFF market and is unfortunately often overlooked. However, their cases are quiet good, and have a lot of power packed into …

Jarrod’s Tech Tests RTX 4070 Desktop Against RTX 4070 Laptop With Brutal Results

  Jarrod’s Tech has benchmarked the RTX 4070 laptop GPU against the full desktop version, and the results are not pretty. For those that don’t know, Nvidia uses the same name for their laptop GPUs as their desktop models. However, while the names are the same, the specs are very, very different.

As the laptop GPUs are often used in SFF prebuilt computers, it’s important know the …
