    Supercomputers usually run on a UNIX distro.

    Ah. Makes sense. Liquid helium cooling?

    With Summit, US Regains Leadership from China in TOP500 Supercomputers Listing

    [citation needed] sorry, but no single chip could possibly use 25 Megawatts (or, more power than both the Titan and Summit supercomputers combined). If you put 25 megawatts through a single microchip (let's say 1 square inch in size), no amount of cooling in the world could prevent that from...

    With Summit, US Regains Leadership from China in TOP500 Supercomputers Listing

    More importantly, will it run Crysis? The US government mainly uses the Titan (and now the Summit) for simulating nuclear decay in stockpiled nuclear weapons and the decay of used fuel from reactors. Probably also Signal Intelligence and Cryptogrophy work, but that kind of stuff is...

    EVGA Introduces New and Innovative Products at CES 2016

    I do like the case but the claim "First PC Gaming Case Designed for GPU Cooling" is crap. Both Lian-Li and Silverstone have sold cases in the past with an unobstructed airflow path between the intake fans and the PCI slots. That being said, if the case comes in under $200, it'll be at the top...

    Creative Unleashes The X-Fi Sonic Carrier

    wait, $5000 for a sound bar?!?!?! You could build an actual 7.1 surround sound system that could blow that out of the water for that much money.

    Thermalright Intros Le Grande Macho CPU Cooler

    i've had a Macho hung on the vertical on my mobo for 3 years now. No warping, cracking or loss of contact with the CPU. Not really a problem. Still the best cooler you can buy for less than $80.

    Jonsbo Announces the UMX3 Micro-ATX Chassis

    Looks good. Like full window side panel. But, does look just like the cases Rosewill has been selling on Newegg for a while. Probably the same OEM.

    PowerColor Launches Radeon R9 390 X2 Devil13 Dual-GPU Graphics Card

    Huh, they must have been trying to clear inventory, and have since jacked the prices back up as supplies started to dwindle.

    PowerColor Launches Radeon R9 390 X2 Devil13 Dual-GPU Graphics Card

    They were about that price on Newegg about a month ago. If you search around enough, you should be able to find one in the $650 to $750 range.

    PowerColor Launches Radeon R9 390 X2 Devil13 Dual-GPU Graphics Card

    Previous Devil 13 (290X X2, so basically the same card as this new Devil 13, only with 8GB instead of 16GB) was $1500. So if it is the same price, it'll be kind of the opposite of a good deal, especially considering a 295X2 can be found for $650

    PowerColor Launches Radeon R9 390 X2 Devil13 Dual-GPU Graphics Card

    Just find the benches for the previous 290X Devil 13 card. On anything below 4K (2X 4GB as apposed to 2X 8GB on the new card) they should be about the same, seeing as how it's basically the same card. Even looks like it uses the same heatsink and comes with the same free mouse. I assume they...

    really like it. Wish it was $50 cheaper though. :(
