Sooo, the PC Master Race will become even more exclusive? I'm failing to see the problem.

I wish... But I became way too addicted to modding games ( either with ready downloadable mods, or modding the files myself ) I play and I don't want to be nickle'd and dime'd in some single players games *cough* like Fallout Shelter *cough* when I can just use cheat engine to avoid the payola that would amount to 100$+ in "micro" transactions.

And even if I could do all of the above on consoles, the K&M support still isn't up to par .

At this point I'm seriously considering finding another hobby. xD

That rumored power consumption seems fairly absurd, and I doubt that's accurate. If true, it means they'd require/recommend pairing it with a 1000+ watt power supply, which is ridiculous. It would force the majority of users to also upgrade that as well, which is quite expensive.
If you think a new psu is pricey, just wait till you see how expensive next gen gpu’s.
This ain’t a cheap hobby.

It was an expensive hobby *before* the cost of major components tripled. At these prices, I'm content gaming at medium settings. I like PC gaming, but I don't like it enough to spend 3K on it, when the price should be 1.5K. Better to invest that money and by the time PC components come down, you'll have enough for a really nice PC.

It is very absurd, considering that they're supposed to be shrinking from the Samsung 8nm process (equivalent to TSMC's 10nm) down to TSMC 5nm... Where the hell did that efficiency increase go if they have to double the TDP in order to double performance?

Don't worry, the online retailer will bundle a 1000W PSU with your RTX 4000 purchase, so there's no hassle at all!

You mean will bundle the *Cheapest* 1000W PSU they could find in the "ship to scrapyard" section. Like Gigabyte PSU's ^^

Why not, on top off all the RGB people pointlessly put in their system, you will also get authentic fire, smoke and that sweet sweet burning electronics on fire smell.

Yep, they should sell it as the "immersive edition" ;p

And I'm with RedEye, Immersive Addition should include the Asus ROG Hero Maximus B69 Fire Extinguisher with Wifi Technology (msrp $999.99). Comes with a PCI controller to handle the RGB on the Extinguisher. The Gigabyte ones are OOS, go figure.

Look for the bundle that includes a fire extinguisher.🧯

and on top of everything else - Air Conditioning for the room the setup with the 4xxx GPU series and current/future CPUs.
Everyones situation is a little different, but I wager the majority of these computers are in rooms / dens / bedrooms without good central air or other forms of good AC - so hopefully you enjoy the heat.
