    GIGABYTE X670E and X670 AORUS Motherboard Lineup Detailed

    I'm hoping that we'll see itx board with 10G this time. But seeing only the top atx board gets it I don't have much hope for one that's less than 250€ :/ 2.5G will soon be as fast if not slower than top wifi speed (wifi 7 + same room as the access point)

    AMD Confirms "Zen 3" with 64 MB 3DV Cache for Q1-2022, "Zen 4" Later, PCIe Gen5 + DDR5

    I hope AMD can make the bold move of releasing AM5 as soon as Q1 2022. Their CPU being chiplet, I don't see anything blocking them from releasing an io die for DDR5 sooner than the cpu chiplet, especially considering the IO die will probably use an older/cheaper process. They should even be able...

    Intel's "Alder Lake" Desktop Processor supports DDR4+DDR5, (only few) PCIe Gen 5 and Dynamic Memory Clock

    There's a belief that X570 runs hot because of pcie 4.0, despite derb8aur showing basicaly no difference between pcie gen speed or even if there's a nvme ssd or not The reason would rather be that it's using a repurposed die with a bunch of useless mm² that sucks power.

    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
