    QNAP Unveils the QWA-AC2600 Wireless Adapter

    "The QWA-AC2600 wireless adapter can turn Ubuntu/Linux PCs or compatible QNAP NAS into wireless access points " This is far more than just a NIC. A standard desktop NIC cannot function effectively as a WAP.

    FTC Gives Manufacturers 30 Days to Remove Warranty Void Stickers

    One thing I'm still not sure of: what about serial numbers? Say a product has a sticker with a serial number on (not located above a screwhole, as that runs afoul of the Magnusson-Moss Act), can the manufacturer claim voided warranty if it's removed?

    Intel Scores Another Top AMD Exec - Chris Hook Confirmed to Join Company

    For those interested, here is an article on why non-competes are illegal in California: https://www.rhdtlaw.com/job-hopping-california-right/. And here is the relevant law section mentioned in the article...

    NVIDIA TITAN V Lacks SLI or NVLink Support

    I don't really get most of the complaints in this thread. This is a V100 with a reduced memory bandwidth and priced at a 70% discount. What is the problem here? This isn't aimed at gamers in any way, and is instead designed to be a reduced-price card for those working with deep learning and AI...

    EVGA Introduces Z370 Series Motherboards

    Most of the top 3DMark scores have been made using EVGA motherboards, so I'm not really seeing a problem with the vreg setup. I also have no idea what you mean about M.2s that don't accept SSDs; many companies include Key E slots that only accept WiFi cards or similar, but there are also Key M...

    Crucial Announces the BX300 Solid-state Drive

    A 1TB 7200RPM HDD for my laptop only cost me $60; the same drive in an SSD is still well over $300. That's why people use a small SSD for boot, in my case 250GB, and a larger HDD. Hell, I've bought 6TB HDDs for less than $300. Once the prices come down more they'll be more common, but for now...

    AMD RX Vega First Pricing Information Leaked in Sweden - "Feels Wrong"

    This is correct. A large majority of 1080s will boost themselves to 1900+ without any overclocking at all, thanks to GPU Boost 3.0. I put a 1080 FTW2 in a client's system, and without any changes it was running at 2000 while in Superposition.

    François Piednoël Quits Intel

    For those saying he had to sign a non-compete contract and won't be able to work for any other company, that may not be the case. In California, non-competes are completely unenforceable. Here's a good article on what is and isn't allowed...
