    Initial AMD Technical Assessment of CTS Labs Research

    Don't expect too much of administrative privileige. Admin priv can't do everything, but a Secure Processor/Management Engine can.

    Next Major Windows 10 Update Named "Spring Creators Update"

    I'm so eager for this release, for the Windows Subsystem for Linux bug fixes. And I can't understand why you have to upgrade entire Windows or kick in Insider, just to upgrade WSL or Edge. This is stupid.

    AMD Ryzen 2000 Series "Pinnacle Ridge" Roadmap Leaked

    There are SEVERE INDISCREPENCIES in figure 2, in which it claims 2400G & 2200G to have 10MB cache. But in reality, those chips only have 6MB of cache. If these were real AMD slides, then they should be charged as commercial FRAUD. I doubt the credibility of this leak, or someone in AMD is real nut.

    Mobile Coffee Lake CPU Scores Rear Their Head on Geekbench

    No, Intel only guarantees a sustainable all-core 2.2GHz. And the highest possible sustainable all-core should be around like 3.8-3.9GHz. Your milage may vary anywhere between those values, depending on your system's cooling capability.

    SEC Warns Tech Execs Not to Trade Stock When Investigating Security Flaws

    In retrospect, Mr. Krzanich's decision seems to be pretty bad, because the stock price got even higher after the reveal of the vulnerabilities.

    NVIDIA Turing is a Crypto-mining Chip Jen-Hsun Huang Made to Save PC Gaming

    Oh, grabbing cash from mining industry, sounds good to me, except that is completely non-sense. This is as ridiculous as to say somebody exploits Wall Street fund managers. They calculate expenditure/income to extreme, and you want to cash-grab them?

    Intel Sees Promise of Silicon Spin Qubits for Quantum Computing

    Yes, silicon-based quantum computing, they finally mentioned it to the general public. Intel has been researching on this for quite some years. EDIT: well they finally made it out, 2-qubits real functioning system

    Colorful Responds to the About Page Saga with a "We didn't do it"

    Yes, and did they outsource their inspection/quality control to the same company?

    Imitation is The Sincerest Form of Flattery... That Colorful Can Show EVGA?

    Guess what, the same government, persecuted and killed "intellectuals" merely 40 years ago. Back then, there was a slogan from chairman Mao, "The more knowledge one has, the more anti-revolutionist he is". Intellectuals were classified as "shitty ninth-rate scums" (plain translation). There...

    Imitation is The Sincerest Form of Flattery... That Colorful Can Show EVGA?

    I would only like to say "typical". In China, most companies, except some IT tech giants which truly deal with internet, consider website development a nuisance and a tedious task. After their near-non-existent IT department finished it, their boss, whose English vocabulary is within a hand's...

    Samsung Confirms Reports of ASIC Mining Chip Production at Its Factories

    ASIC-resistance is not that it stops on ASICs. It just prevents ASICs getting unreasonably fast, via methods like RAM dependence. If an improved ASIC can mine faster than a GPU, by choosing appropriate RAM, changing cache hierachy and optimizing pipeline, and it comes in mass quantity, then it...

    Various AMD Ryzen "Raven Ridge" Models Put Through 3DMark

    Then it would require a dedicated 200W-TDP-capable motherboard, or else it will smoke mainstream motherboards. And better some GDDR or HBM on board.

    Various AMD Ryzen "Raven Ridge" Models Put Through 3DMark

    I'm not sure about how these chips will work out in PUBG 1080p gaming market, which they seems to just barely handles it.

    US Lawmakers to Pull Up Intel, ARM, Microsoft, and Amazon for Spectre Secrecy

    How do you ever know Intel does not work from Day 1? Did you work there? Linux kernel community has been known to be extremely conservative when it comes to performance-degrading patches in the past decade. This KPTI which almost busted the performance of kernel call must have been a last...

    AMD Ryzen 5 2400G Smokes Core i5-8400 at iGPU Performance

    Typo: Coffee Lake-D does not exist, it is Coffee Lake-S (Socketable)
