    Intel CPUs Since Haswell Vulnerable to "Zombieload v2" Attacks, "Cascade Lake" Included

    I was exaggerating heavily poking fun of Intel that by the time all of these "glued together" vulnerability fixes get done with and added up you'd end up with a CPU that's about 4% as capable as it was originally sold and marketed as to consumers.

    Intel inside now with 4% of the performance you paid for.

    Xerox Corporation Tries To Acquire HP Inc.

    I mean yes and no I guess what you are saying, but at the same time Xerox pretty much invented the OS or at least what Microsoft turned around ripped off and stole essentially.

    Biostar Racing X570GT

    Yeah I tend to like MATX form factor compact, but not so compact that it's overkill like ITX and will have to make clear sacrifices. I don't tend to feel like I'm missing much overall between MATX and ATX. Another aspect of MATX is it often has wifi and better LAN NIC's built in than many ATX...

    AMD CEO Lisa Su Talks About 3rd Gen Ryzen Boost Issue in Q3 Earnings Call

    "AMD shares fell around 1.96% on Tuesday and closed the trading day at $33.03. On a YTD (year-to-date) basis, AMD has risen around 78.9% as of Tuesday. In comparison, the S&P 500 has risen around 21.14% YTD. Intel (INTC) and Nvidia (NVDA) have risen 22.4% and 52.3%, respectively, YTD." Seems...

    Microsoft Details DirectX Raytracing Tier 1.1, New DirectX 12 Features

    The human eye automatically culls all that geometric mesh detail it see's that isn't visible instantly which shows how dumb GPU's are still. Another aspect of the mesh shader optimizations is that every pixel saved is a pixel earned so to speak. Can always apply that power and heat waste for...

    Microsoft Details DirectX Raytracing Tier 1.1, New DirectX 12 Features

    These mesh shader optimizations will be key to enabling ray tracing at acceptable performance in complex lighting/shading scenes. At least that's my thoughts on it. Not just that though they'll be really useful for animation as well if they can lumped together and utilized jointly to make...

    InWin 309

    It would look better as a rack/desk case honestly. Would be cool to program some Tetris blocks patterns on it though. Pricey for the gimmick that is though. It's clearly aimed at people with too much money to burn.

    InWin 309

    That LED matrix display built is is awesome. A rack mounted version would be cool as well and arguably look even better. If this thing can work as a nice 8 band/track music visualizer that's awesome. That and just use the remaining LED's to display some pixel graphics that could change via the...

    Razer Introduces the World's First Optical Laptop Keyboard

    Perhaps just to help reduce bottoming out as well as quicker return. The smaller one might just be to cut down on bottoming out quickly while the larger one is stiffer and bigger for a quicker return.

    AMD TRX40 Chipset Not Compatible with 1st and 2nd Gen Threadrippers

    They've got a long ways to go to match Intel's overall shenanigans however. Honestly I get it with the HEDT platform and with the memory channel changes. I'm sure this HEDT board replacing x399 will probably last a additional generation or two on top of that. It would have been good if things...
