RTX 3060, RTX 3060 Ti, and RX 6900 XT available on Newegg Shuffle

Image Description

Newegg is keeping the streak going with their third Shuffle event in as many days, this time offering RTX 3060, RTX 3060 Ti, and RX 6900 XT graphics cards on March 17, from 1pm to 4pm EDT.

First up is the RTX 3060. There's the MSI Ventus 2X 12G RTX 3060, priced at $479, and the MSI Gaming X 12G RTX 3060 for $509. There is also a Zotac RTX 3060 available for $519. None of the cards have a bundle option, unfortunately, but if you're just looking for the cards, you should be able to save some money.

For the RTX 3060 Ti, the only card on offer is the Asus ROG Strix 8G RTX 3060 Ti, with an option for just the card itself for $669, or bundled with an Asus Tuf B550-Plus ATX AMD motherboard for $816 – assuming you don't mind mixing up Asus ROG component branding in your build.

Finally, for AMD fans there's the MSI Gaming X Trio 16G Radeon RX 6900 XT, which will set you back a whopping $1,599.

How to throw your hat in the ring during Newegg Shuffle drawings

The way Newegg Shuffle works is you sign up for a Newegg account and during the event window, you select the items you want and simply click the button marked "Enter the Shuffle." 

When the event window closes, in about an hour, winning accounts will be drawn from the list for each item and the winners notified at the email associated with the account. 

About 90 minutes after notifications go out, winners will have a roughly four-and-a-half-hour window to follow the link in the email to a secure checkout on Newegg and complete their purchase. If the winners do not complete their purchase in the allotted time, they lose their chance to purchase their item and have to wait until it comes up again in another shuffle and try again.

It definitely isn't a perfect system, but it's better than the wild west shoot-out with bots, profiteers, and Ethereum miners that existed before.

  • Google Chat update will help you get rid of incriminating evidence

    Google has announced that paid Google Workspace users will soon be able to delete Spaces group chats completely from Google Chat.

    According to a new blog post, the search giant is bringing the ability to delete named Spaces in Google Chat to Google Workspace Business Standard and Business Starter editions first though it plans to extend this capability to other versions of its online collaboration tool next year.

    Once this new feature rolls out, creators of a Space will be able to fully delete it along with all of the room tasks, files and attachments not saved elsewhere from Google Chat. Once a Space has been deleted, all of its members will no longer be able to access the space, its files or the member list.

    Deleting Spaces in Google Chat

    In addition to eliminating clutter and making it easier to navigate to frequently used Spaces, the ability to delete a group chat in Google Chat can also be useful for employees concerned that management may be going through their old messages.

    In its blog post, Google points out that this feature is not available for Google Workspace editions that come equipped with the company's information governance and eDiscovery tool Google Vault. If a business upgrades from the Business Standard or Business Starter edition of Workspace to one that supports Google Vault, they will lose the ability to delete named Spaces.

    While this feature will initially be available to Google Workspace Business Standard, G Suite Basic and Business Starter customers, Google plans to make it available to all editions of its online collaboration tool next year.

  • Why Wordle #270 was so hard, according to the experts

    Another day, another irksome Wordle conundrum. Like puzzle #265 before it, puzzle #270 proved a particularly tricky beast for players around the world to reckon with – but not for the same reasons as its predecessor. 

    Once again, TechRadar spoke to Dr Matthew Voice, an Assistant Professor in Applied Linguistics at the UK’s University of Warwick, to find out the granular details behind the problematic answer. We also heard from Shaun Savage, Editor in Chief at Try Hard Games Guides, for more on the troublesome term.

    Naturally, we’ll be divulging the solution to previous Wordle puzzles below, so proceed with caution if, for some reason, you want to stay in the dark.  

    So, ladies and gents, the Wordle answer in question was CATER. Granted, that’s decidedly more obscure than WATCH (puzzle #265), but it’s not exactly a term that demands you dig out a dictionary. 

    Dr Voice previously explained to us that WATCH was a prime example of an n-gram, i.e. a group of letters of a length (n) that commonly cluster together. Again, CATER ends with an n-gram with a length of four letters – a quadrigram – which presents similar problems, on top of some extra word-specific difficulties. 

    It's all in the morphology

    “Looking back at Project Gutenberg's list of common n-grams,” Dr Voice tells us, “you can really see why getting some of today's letters in place isn't necessarily narrowing down the possibilities. ER is the fourth most common combination of any two letters in the whole of the English language, it seems, and TER the twelfth most common combination of three.”

    “That said,” he adds, “I also think it's interesting to think about why 'cater' might not seem like an immediately obvious option to everyone who's got the point of finding _ATER. The answer to this might be to do with our expectations about morphology – the way we combine together different parts of language to make new words.”

    Morphology. Right, we’re following. 

    “ER is a very common bigram partly because '-er' is a highly productive suffix in English. It can be added to the end of most verbs in order to make a new noun, usually to describe someone or something doing the original verb. So 'report' becomes 'reporter' and 'play' becomes 'player', for example.”

    “So we might associate an '-er' ending with nouns in particular. The data for the eleven options to fill the last slot in _ATER bears this out, too: nine of them are nouns, with one adjective ('later') and our solution, 'cater', being the only verb in the group. Players caught thinking of 'verb + -er' words might have overlooked this exception.”

    So there you have it, Wordle-ers. CATER was tricking you with its sneaky bigram, which was subsequently encouraging the mind to think of 'verb + -er’ words (which, of course, does not account for the existence of ‘cater’). 

    This is what we learned from Shaun Savage, Editor in Chief at Try Hard Guides, on the matter of puzzle #270’s internet infamy: “While we definitely see more traffic on days where people need help figuring out what possible words the answer could be – with _ATER, people have a few words that likely came to mind! – we have seen the answer post trend higher in these instances, same with 'watch' and 'dodge'.”

    “This past week's words haven't been too offbeat,” Savage adds. “We have seen steady traffic, but no mega surges like we have for a few words (‘vivid’ comes to mind) that are harder to figure out. The situation with _ATER, though, is that there are lots of possibilities, and all of them fit without specifically trying to eliminate more consonants.”

    Well then, that was two tricky terms in the space of five days. Come on, Wordle, give us and our broken streaks a break...
