Hope you had a great Easter break! I was away playing in an inline hockey tournament, so thanks to aftahours and Rezin for keeping the news page moving. :)

People are reporting that RX 480s can be flashed to RX 580s - maybe. Essentially, this may allow you to bypass some artificial overclocking limitation with your graphics card, probably by increased voltages on different power states of the card. You should do this at your own risk, and remember, the only guaranteed way of getting an RX 580 is... you guessed it, buying an RX 580. However, this might also give you an extra performance boost, and free performance is always good, right? Discussion towards the end of this thread.

Tweaktown check out 5Gbit Ethernet on an ASRock board. Both of these ASRock motherboards carry one of the latest NBase-T controllers, the Aquantia AQC108. ASRock is the only vendor I know of that is offering 5Gbit networking to consumers, and they also made sure that these two motherboards offered three M.2 slots and extra storage options. Modern storage protocols and devices using NAND provide very high transfer speeds.

Competitive video gamers will be able to win medals at the 2022 Asian Games, thanks tired. The Olympic Council of Asia announced eSports, the name given to competitive video gaming, will be included as an official medal event in the 2022 competition in Hangzhou. In a statement the council said the inclusion of eSports reflected "the rapid development and popularity of this new form of sports participation among the youth".

Phoronix looked at RX 580 Linux performance, and also did some overclocking under Linux. Yesterday I posted the initial Radeon RX 580 Linux benchmarks while now with having more time with this "Polaris Evolved" card I've been able to try out a bit more, like the AMDGPU Linux overclocking support. Here are the ups and downs of overclocking the Radeon graphics card under Linux.
