    Free Game Alert: Ubisoft's STEEP is free on Uplay, until May 21st

    I bought it a year ago at full price because I love the Alps, skiing, etc. So stuff the 'be grateful' demands. lol. Barely played it. Of course others will like it. Once you have played high detail games it is hard to go back (for me). Enjoy it! :toast:

    Tecware Phantom RGB Keyboard

    @bug "That may a blessing in disguise, because it means you might not actually need to look at the drover's UI at all." Yeah, never again a keyboard without onboard memory for the profiles. My Asus kb was configured during first day and then I uninstalled their unholy "Armour" (cough)...

    Deepest ever dive finds plastic bag at bottom of Mariana Trench

    No need for conspiracy, plastic is all over the news (and waters). Just jump on a boat and see it by yourself. 1st question should be: Is this a fake or certified record immersion? (I don't know, not saying it is or not)

    3 generations of NVM PCI-E SSD's

    3 generations of NVM PCI-E SSD's

    Just added another SSD to my setup and ran benchmarks. I didn't expect this escalation, because the latest is the cheapest and the ... fastest (in all but 2 values) Good old Intel 750 SSD (full PCI-e card) is not the fastest anymore by a large margin, but still has 1 area faster: 4K-64 Read (not...
