    Seems a direct link to the forums is down and just the most basic version is up through the Home Page.

    The servers are getting slammed due to the 3080 review. Little we can do atm.

    Show an article to a fixed amount of visitors, showing others a page with "sorry" and invitation to get back a little later.
    And do not show an article to people without account.
    :cool:

    Purely out of curiosity, how much would a comfortable increase in capacity set you back ? Been a member for a while and never really thought much of what goes on behind the curtains, being the simpleton that I am.

    We're currently running off four servers. A dedicated server costs ~ 1500 EUR + 1200 EUR upkeep a year for hosting, such a server lasts 3 years. In normal and even busy scenarios , we're fine. The problems reside in the fact that everything is built towards a momentum these days with releases precisely scheduled at a certain time. Everybody knows, and everybody started refreshing 15 minutes prior to launch.

    Where you normally need your 100% capacity, releases like today can increase traffic to 1000%~1500% ... so you can keep throwing money at servers for a handful of articles per year that create this effect .. or just sit it out a couple of hours and wait until things normalize. In the end, the issue is that everybody will want to read the content all at the same time spread over a couple of hours.

    We're working on a new Guru3D though, so on the software side of things are going to improve significantly as well, which hopefully helps some with high traffic days.

    Yikes, best I start clicking some more ads again! Although I do already now that they have become a 100% more relevant to stuff I'm interested in so good job on that front. When I win some dosh on lottery, you'll get first dibs on donations!
