    ASUS Announces the Use of Liquid Metal Thermal Compound in its 2020 ROG Laptops

    Noticeably, only the Intel CPU gets the liquid metal, not Nvidia dies (or, presumably, AMD dies). How bad are Intel CPUs that liquid metal is now necessary? Also, how much is ASUS sucking up to Intel, that they have to go this far to cool a laptop CPU instead of just using the correct CPU in...

    Scythe Shuriken 2

    For the Node 202, just like the Dan A4, use a Noctua L9i/a with a fan duct. Far less noise and similar temperature results.

    The all-new Razer Blade 15 - built for those who demand more

    There are still 3 Type A ports. HDMI 2.1 is not within the featureset of this laptop, or any computer so far. Optical Keyboard is annoyingly AWOL at this point.

    Editorial Intel Planning 14nm "Ozark Lake" 16-core Processor for Spring 2021

    AMD Processors No Longer Crippled with Latest MATLAB MKL Update

    They make two releases a year, March and September. Not every company panic blows a truckload of patches every week.

    Microsoft Azure Traffic Surges 775% Amid COVID-19 Outbreak

    Glad I'm not the only one who is wondering what the point of Teams even was. Amusingly, the signup page has three options. One of which just redirects you to sign up for Skype. I thought it was a joke, but MSFT is serious. Teams is so bad, they cannot even recommend it for casual use...

    stupid fujitsu 12v only psu 16pin connector

    Luckily, ATX spec is moving to incorporate 12V-Only setups (depreciating the outdated 5V and 3.3V rails/wires from the 24pin plug altogether and beefing up the 12V deliver on the new, smaller plug).

    Intel Adds Game Capture and Broadcasting Features to Graphics Command Center

    I completely agree, it really should. But the Dell XPS 7590 isn't the only one that exhibits this behavior. The Dell Precision 7530 is also affected, too. Only a sample size of two, and both anecdotal. But I err on the side of blaming Dell.

    AMD's Ryzen 5 4600 and Ryzen 7 4800HS CPU Benchmarks Leaked

    Looking forward to either of the ASUS G14/G15 laptops with the 4800HS, 240Hz display (adaptive sync!), RTX2060, and (historically) 70+WHr battery. ASUS also added USB-C charging (as a backup) for the 4800HS models. Add in RJ45, battery charge state control, and clustered function key groups...

    Three Unknown NVIDIA GPUs GeekBench Compute Score Leaked, Possibly Ampere?

    After Apple, the defacto chair of the Kronos group (OpenCL committe/standards body) burned OpenCL - which Apple themselves created - in favor of their own proprietary "Metal," who is going to have faith in OpenCL's development?

    Intel Adds Game Capture and Broadcasting Features to Graphics Command Center

    Depends on your laptop. My junk laptop (known as the) Dell XPS 15 7590 loses battery life doing that.

    CD Projekt Red Now Second Largest Gaming Company in Europe

    Right, a single developer (as in a single human) makes a comment in a forum = "they (implicitly, the whole company)." Very cool.

    ASUS Unveils GeForce RTX 2060 DUAL Mini, Possible RX 5600 XT and EVGA KO Competitor

    Is it actually Dual Link DVI, or just Single Link DVI? New Dual Link DVI cards from Nvidia (I don't know about AMD) are rather hard to come by, nowadays, ever since Nvidia dropped them from the Pascal reference designs (in favor of Single Link DVI). I sold off my last Dual Link DVI screen last...
