    The solution is simple. Developers should abandon iOS. We should just let it rot.

    Rumor: AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO Lineup Leaked

    280W TDP for the 12 and 16 core CPUs? I highly doubt that. I don't see AMD pushing higher than 140W on those two CPUs.

    Samsung 980 Pro PCIe 4.0 SSD Rumored to Launch Within Two Months

    With windows defender installed by default on windows 10,you won't see any meaningful improvement. Defender already gimps normal nvme ssds very close to SATA SSDs.

    And Now, a Cyberattack That Uses Fan Vibrations to Steal Data: Air-ViBeR

    ...If someone compromised your airgapped system, and your phone, you have bigger issues than your system varying its fan speed to talk to the phone.

    CEA-Leti Makes a 96 core CPU from Six Chiplets

    The 28nm process is the best cost efficient process. After that the process becomes more expensive, not less. And if you are aiming for both power efficient and cost efficient design, this isn't a bad choice.

    Alleged ASUS AMD X570 Motherboard Price-list Paints a Horror Story

    Oh noes, I have to spend 200$ for a motherboard for a 12-core CPU. Hint, to feed that amount of cores with significant data for processing you will need 16-32GB of ram anyway.

    Windows 10 May 2019 Update 1903 Gaming Performance Tested in 21 Titles, with RTX 2080 Ti and Radeon VII

    Why the fuck are they updating the driver model every 6 months? It is like they want every update to result in bluescreens.

    NVIDIA DLSS Test in Final Fantasy XV

    The game renders in 1440p and DLSS upscales to 4k. DLSS has two modes, DLSS and DLSS - high quality. DLSS renders at lower resolution then upscales, and you get higher fps than if you rendered at native without AA. DLSS HQ renders at native resolution and then applies DLSS to get you to...

    Microsoft Halts Windows 10 October Update Rollout Yet Again, Affects Only Some Intel Users

    "Issue with intel iGPU driver" = 95% of laptops will have this issue. Also, its Microsoft's fault. Why are they changing the driver model daily? Previously they changed the driver model twice, once for XP, once for Vista. Now they are breaking drivers every 3-4 months. Linux drivers last longer...

    Remedy Shows The Preliminary Cost of NVIDIA RTX Ray Tracing Effects in Performance

    The benefits of RTX won't be in AAA games. AAA games already look wonderful. The benefits of RTX will be in low end and indie games. Low end and indie games don't use the graphics card a lot, and RTX allows them to implement global ilumination and great shadows at low production cost. So they...

    Are you gaming in 4K?

    Yes, I got a benq 4k ips monitor for 500euros. I ran it on a gtx 1060 6gb, with upscaling on high end AAA games, but I mostly play 2011-2014 games like War thunder and World of tanks, and the 1060 didn't have any issues running those games. Last month I upgraded to a 1080 ti, since it turned...

    Windows 10 Oct 2018 Update Process Runs Aground with Certain Intel Processors, Fix Released

    Oh, yeah super duper smooth. One of these updates made windows boot on my system for 5 minutes, on a nvme ssd. It did the same for my brother, and several other computers.

    NVIDIA RTX 2080 / 2080 Ti Results Appear For Final Fantasy XV

    I am pretty sure that for multigpunvidia are moving to NVLink, which if done properly will enable better multi-gpu scaling that is transparent to the games. NVLink is similar to multi CPU motherboards with NUMA memory arrangement. (It will add the gpu memories together, and the processors will...

    SD Express is a New Memory Card Standard That Leverages PCIe and NVMe

    SD cards directly on the PCIex slot with pciex hotplugging. Hello blue screen my old friend. Also giving sd cards full physical memory read access is a horrible horrible idea. Say hello to spy SD cards that can record audio, listen to keystrokes, record video output and with a convenient TB...

    NVIDIA Expects Partners to Release 4K, 144 Hz G-Sync Displays With HDR in April

    The point is that text looks great. The point of moving to 4k is to get out of the 80PPI range and move into the 150-250PPI range, which looks a lot better. Especially for text. Text looks the same as if it was printed in a book.
