This is the only blog I check on a regular basis, and that's down to Liam doing an exceptional job every single day.
Do you see if those people still return or they also never return to the site? Would be interesting to analyze, whether it's simply updating problem, or rather users leaving one. I.e. for example when deleting, you can set some internal counter about the above.

I was holding out for the RX5500, but it still seems like it's not quite ready for prime time. I picked up the XFX RS XXX RX 570 (not sure if I got all the Xs right) at Newegg for $100. That's a tough price to beat, so I jumped on it.
The performance is solid. I'm only playing at 1080p, so it's good enough for what I'm doing. I'm surprised at how used to the minor stutters I got when using the RX 550 on some older games. Everything is so smooth now.
My only complaint is that it seems to run hot and draw a lot of power. Understandable, when I'm gaming. But at idle, it's drawing at least 35W and that's only if I set power_dpm_force_performance_level to low. The benchmarks and reviews showed a lot less power draw for this card at idle.
