    Thinking Outside the DRM: Denuvo Sues Founder of Piracy Group "REVOLT"

    Well said. Denuvo and its partners aren't going to get a single penny from me. No matter how good the actual game is if it is bundled with Denuvo, I'll gladly skip it.

    Graphics Card Shipments Fall On Weak Mining Demand in 2H18; Prices to Remain Hiked

    Despite the cool down for mining, the price of graphics cards is still at its all-time high because of manufacturers' greed. Well, f*ck this shit. I won't be upgrading until the price is back to how it was before the mining boom.

    First Benchmarks, CPU-Z Screenshots of AMD Ryzen Threadripper 32-core CPU Surface

    EVGA Says Goodbye to Driver DVDs

    Premium G-Sync, HDR Monitors from ASUS, ACER Reportedly Launching in Two Weeks

    For me PWM backlight is a straight no buy. DC backlight is always preferred over 144Hz for me as I don't want to trade my pair of eyes for some mere gaming experiences.

    BenQ Intros Zowie RL2755T 27-inch "Console eSports Monitor"

    Nah, it's a Sony certified official PS4 appliance for goodness sake. You gotta add another $100 to its price tag.

    Widespread Cheating in Multiplayer Online Games Frustrates Consumers

    The only online multiplayer FPS game I play now is the good old DoD:Source. Luckily I still have a few active servers on my list hosted by some reputable gaming sites/clans. The game is so old that most hackers have moved on. The existing cheats have mostly been caught by Valve anti-cheats...

    Samsung Announces the 970 PRO and 970 EVO Series M.2 NVMe SSDs

    Intel Optane 905P Series 3D XPoint SSDs Detailed

    I'm fine with the U2 format. It's good to keep such a power hungry SSD off the motherboard. But the price is insane.

    The chart confirms Z370 is a rebadged Z270 as it is listed under 200 series chipset as KBP-H. So no support for cannonlake.

    Looking at the diagrams, I doubt it would fully clear the DIMM 1 slot.
