    PNY Quietly Reduces XLR8 CS3030 M.2 NVMe SSD Endurance by Almost 80%

    I see the 4TB one is reporting the previously expected TBW. To me it looks like they try to steer chia miners to the 4TB sku, maybe they have better profit on this one.

    GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 3090 Ampere Eagle OC and Gaming OC Pictured

    My guess is 1.9x is in a RTX context, otherwise 3090 is an absolute monster with +50% IPC or something lol

    Micron Also Announces Development of HBMnext

    HBM2e is scheduled for 3.2Gbps, there's already HBM2 that's available at 2.4Gbps Given what's in the article they never spoke about HBMnext expected bandwidth

    Philips Announces 558M1RY and 278M1R Monitors for Console Gaming

    The article is written by a monkey (honestly those PRs are the worst, they're full of bullshit anyway), on the website it clearly states 120hz, but it's only in DP : HDMI: 3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz, 2560 x 1440 @ 120 Hz; DP: 3840 x 2160 @ 120 Hz EDIT : my bad the 27" is only 23-75 Hz (V) on the...

    AMD "Navi 12" Silicon Powering the Radeon Pro 5600M Rendered

    It's very pricey but still they will not sell much of them at all, so I wonder if they will manage to recoup the development cost (mask and all) I would guess apple pay some amount upfront because all they care is having a maximum efficiency option whatever the price but maybe I'm...

    AMD "Navi 12" Silicon Powering the Radeon Pro 5600M Rendered

    I'm curious about the 2 small chip appart from the hbm die, the same can be found on the volta gpu, and I never found any informations about those, is it the ecc part of the hbm ? It doesn't seem to be connected to the gpu but rather the hbm chip given the way it's shaped Also very nice gpu...

    Kingston Ships 7.68TB Capacity for Industry-Leading High-Performance Data Center SSDs

    It would be great but it seems that it would be a pain for motherboard maker to use this with multiple length support (1 hole for a screw or the plastic holder, whereas 2 or one long for this) In that sense the plastic holder is a great middle ground between cost and usability (they'd argue...

    NVIDIA Underestimated AMD's Efficiency Gains from Tapping into TSMC 7nm: Report

    Navi 1 is way past it's efficiency point, just look at voltages, Turing runs at about 1000mv compared to amd 1200mv on rx5700xt, also remember voltages should go down as you progresses in nodes Nvidia is likely not comparing rx5700xt as it's configured to make those assumption, they know how to...

    A Unification of DisplayPort 2.0 and USB 4.0 Is Underway, Due for 2021

    Turing and Navi already include a controller for usb though (for navi, the only card i've seen with it is the Radeon Pro W5700) USB type c in general lacks uniformity though, especially for desktop where power delivery is non existent on those ports

    Intel 10th Gen Core Desktop Marketing Materials Confirm Core Counts

    It will be interesting to see what die each cpu uses. 10900k will have top tier 10 cores dies since they don't use 10 core on laptop, but the 10700k will surely also use the 10 core die For the 6 cores I guess they'll use defective 8 core from laptop and so on If that's the case this lineup is...
