    AMD President and CEO Dr. Lisa Su Bestowed with GSA Exemplary Leadership Award

    DR. Lisa Su is the best thing that happened to AMD in over past decade. I remember when she replaced Rory as CEO and everyone had high expectations from her. Truly an asset to AMD.

    Remember when "Building Your Own" Made Financial Sense ?

    Only reason I would buy DELL or any other prebuild system is because of one stop Warranty/Tech Support. Something my parents would love to have. When something goes wrong in custom build system they will not have to deal with troubleshooting, diagnosis or repairs. There are many reasons to pick...

    Intel Announces "Forward-Looking" Architecture Event to be Held December 11th

    Glad Intel is selling us something more then a Quad Core processor for a change. Think its time for INTEL to ditch Core architecture altogether and move beyond to something new.

    NVIDIA Confirms Issues Cropping Up With Turing-based Cards, "It's Not a Broad Issue"

    My point being the larger GPU require more complex manufacturing process thus probability of a defect increases. Yield to die size ratio is not proportional. That is why new GPU start off with smaller nodes e.g. 2080/2070. In this case they rushed 2080 Ti on released date unlike previous...

    Intel Core i9-9900K

    Excellent point, thank you for reply. At this point INTEL can take a lesson from AMD's Gold plated Solder used in RYZEN.

    Intel Core i9-9900K

    "9900K, which will automatically drop clocks when it senses too much power draw. For example when set to 5 GHz all-core, with some extra voltage, as soon as you put a serious multi-core load on the CPU, the clocks will drop instantly to around 4 GHz.

    AMD Athlon 200GE 3.2 GHz

    I need to replace my Core 2 Duo X6800 along with nFORCE 570 SLIT-A motherboard which is still an excellent gaming machine when paired with GTX 1050 Ti. This seems like a good cheap alternative. Memory prices are the main reason I have not upgraded yet.

    Intel Plans To Split its Manufacturing Group Into Three Segments

    I for one say Sohail Ahmed has done great job keeping Intel this far ahead of competition since 1984 but unfortunately one cannot hold a position forever.

    GIGABYTE Z390 OC Guide Suggests Intel 9000 Series Processors Will Run Hot Even With Custom Watercooling

    Those are indeed high temps, 92c is pretty high for merely 5.0Ghz OC. 10nm cant get here soon enough since 14nm is on its last leg. Gigabyte recommends setting TjMAX to 110C so the CPU wont throttle?
