    EK Launches a 4-in-1 AM5 Socket Delicacy for the SFF Community

    They are making a big deal about how it's super optimized and designed for only one socket, my theory is they don't want to sound incoherent about that whole thing

    EK Launches a 4-in-1 AM5 Socket Delicacy for the SFF Community

    I think he knows it says AM5 only, but could it easily be hacked to, or even just work as-is with AM4, or with different backplate etc. Sure it's not optimized for it and they might want to advertise it as specifically made for 1 socket, but it might still work with AM4. I wouldn't bet on it...

I'll give AMD that they tend to age better due to improvements with drivers over time. AMD is great, but you'd...

    Displace to Launch Truly Wireless TV Powered by AMD and NVIDIA at CES 2023

    Huh, not for everybody but appreciate the innovation and letting the rich pay for the R&D for this kind of stuff XD I've always liked the idea of the base station separate from the display, easier to manage heat, theoretically base station upgradeable and panel can be re-used and vice-versa...
