    Intel Confirms Soldered IHS for 9th Gen Core Series

    That is in one application. Cores is better than SMT but I'm sure there are applications in which it always is a help. Linux seems better at handling threads than Windows. EDIT: He mentions in the comments how cinebench benefit from SMT (it's a bench program though so not really interesting)...

    Which New GPU Are You Buying?

    Looking for something like a GTX970 or R9 390 or something, so definitely old gen.

    Old headphones broke, looking for new ones.

    And here's the annoying thing when discussing audio gear: there's no universal consensus on what "budget" means. :p

    This had me look up soundstage, and I'm not sure I like it that I did. I'm looking for headphones also and now there's another thing to worry about. :(

    tried to sell TitanXpascal on ebay heres what happened..

    Fair enough, but you did call them bastards for not wanting what you were selling. It's a "downside" with the auctioning system, if you put something out with a low starting price and nobody's interested ... it'll stay at the low price. It goes both ways though, you can score some good deals if...

    €25 for 8GB does not sound like a planned drop.

    Boid - The Social Supercomputer

    But why? SFEOS looks interesting, but what's the point of using blockchain technology for a game?

    What are you playing?

    Just killed the final boss in the Grim Dawn expansion and it was a lot less difficult than I thought it would be. It took about 39 hours. There's one quest I haven't done that involves an end boss in a dungeon and so far I haven't been able to beat it. I think I have to get my defenses up a bit...

    NAND Flash Prices Could Reach $0.08/GB in 2019

    The DDR3 oversupply happened despite alleged price fixing (I'm saying "alleged" because they have been accused of it since forever and have been fined for it several times bit it wasn't as obvious as it is now). And there are more NAND-makers than DRAM makers afaik, and there is actual...

    Valve Apparently Working on Compatibility Tools Allowing Windows Games to be Played on Linux

    Isn't that world pretty fractious? This will require a lot of work on thier part. Would be cool, but I'll not get excited.

    Boid - The Social Supercomputer

    Can I make a blockchain based battle royale game? Capital investors should fall over themselves trying to give me money. I still don't really understand what it is. I've read the wikipedia article, but I still don't get it.

    What is this chip measurement called?

    Yeah this. Electronic components have specs about what kind of performance you can expect at various temperatures (... sort of), but for complicated chips it's sorta meaningless as cooling is intimately related to all electronics.

    It was a mistake. Other sites made the same, but this one hasn't been udated. @Raevenlord Time to update the article and headline?
