    Intel Core i9-12900K 36% Faster Than Stock in Maximum Turbo Power Mode

    In the same power envelope as Rocket lake (or even slightly less), alder lake is delivering big performance increases? That’s good. Power usage can be further optimized by tuning the voltage. Yeah Alder Lake might consume more power than Ryzen (when under turbo and sustained load) but it will...

    Intel Aurora Supercomputer Will Touch 2 ExaFLOPs of Computational Power

    that article is old. Read the newer one. https://www.nextplatform.com/2021/10/27/intel-aims-for-zettaflops-by-2027-pushes-aurora-above-2-exaflops/

    Newegg Canada Jumps the Gun on Z690 Motherboard Sales

    More dmi lanes, pcie5.0, extra m.2, probably more in shipping costs I can see why prices increased. I don’t think $37 is “steep” compared to current 3080 prices over 2080 prices. That is “steep” in my view. Finally, the current pre-announcement Newegg price may not even be the final price.

    GIGABYTE Z690 AERO D Combines Function with Absolute Form

    That is my expectation too. But I guess we’ll know for sure in about 2 weeks or less.

    37 dollars is steep?

    GIGABYTE Z690 AERO D Combines Function with Absolute Form

    Hopefully it has thunderbolt implemented. Like it’s Vision and Designaire predecessors.

    Intel's CEO Blames Predecessors for Current State of the Company, Wants Apple Business Back with Better Processors

    The real question is whether Intel’s manufacturing arm can keep up with his ambitions. If so, then bring it on! Would love to see Intel come back. Just like I was happy to see AMD come back.

    USB-IF Brings New USB Certification Logos to Help Consumers Buy the Right Cables and Chargers

    Customers will find out about it like they find out about other products and services… through advertising, word of mouth, and so on. When USB first came out, a lot of people didn’t know about it (remember PS/2 ports?), yet now USB is ubiquitous, it’s everywhere. When smartphones were first...

    USB-IF Brings New USB Certification Logos to Help Consumers Buy the Right Cables and Chargers

    I suspect that the people who need that type of versatility and connectivity will utilize it first, as they are the types of users who are most likely to “be in the know”, so to speak. And over time consumer awareness will grow as to USB4 is compatible with thunderbolt. I purchased a certified...

    Intel Core i9-12900K "Alder Lake" Beats Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX at Cinebench R23 nT

    I don’t doubt your expertise bro. But I am telling you on my 10th and 11th gen intel boxes, the cpu frequency is volatile, especially if Windows power plan is set to ‘balanced.’ It is always changing. Sometimes it’s at the base frequency (800 MHz) and other times it ramps to the max turbo...

    USB-IF Brings New USB Certification Logos to Help Consumers Buy the Right Cables and Chargers

    How are you going to kick out Intel from the USB-IF, when it was Intel who designed USB in the first place :laugh: ?? Not only that, Intel also donated thunderbolt3 to the USB-IF for USB4 to be able to add pcie tunneling and 40 gbps speeds. Intel also wrote most of the USB4 drivers for the...

    AMD CEO Lisa Su First Woman to Receive the IEEE Robert N. Noyce Medal for Semiconductor Excellence

    Ball is in Intel’s court to come back. Alder Lake being a beast doesn’t negate from Lisa Su’s excellence, and it also does not have anything to do with Lisa Su, other than maybe Zen's excellence inspired intel to come back. Long live x86.

    Intel Core i9-12900K "Alder Lake" Beats Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX at Cinebench R23 nT

    LOL bro you’re using Ryzen for your assumptions? Don’t you realize Intel and Ryzen have completely different cpu power management, and frequency scaling? You can’t claim that someone’s Intel experience of the cpu-z program is invalid, when you’re using Ryzen for your assumptions! On my Intel...

    AMD CEO Lisa Su First Woman to Receive the IEEE Robert N. Noyce Medal for Semiconductor Excellence

    Congrats Lisa Su. AMD’s turnaround has been remarkable. I remember when the stock was around 2.00 a share then it rocketed up to past 100. Very NOICE for my portfolio.
