    Rumor: AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO Lineup Leaked

    No, I think that it's a real smart idea, especially the 12 and 16 core parts, they fill a gap in the TR platform for people that need more PCIe lanes then AM4 got, but don't need, and don't wane pay 1400+ for a 24 core CPU. By now they have high yield rates of dies that can clock much higher...

    Rumor: AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO Lineup Leaked

    If you do 8K video editing on RAW video, you're running out of ram real fast with 120GB/min of data, also in scientific research you have huge data sets, my daughter is doing geographical study, and has run many times against the 512GB limit she has in her 2990WX machine. Not gone say the...

    Rumor: AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO Lineup Leaked

    No, servers and workstations are mostly very different type of products, no serious server admin would ever use a workstation board in his servers, server board are designed to run in racks, next to that the EPYC line and boards are certified for their 24/7 jobs. Next, servers boards are more...

    ASUS Unveils ROG Zenith II Extreme Alpha Motherboard: Improved CPU VRM

    A lot of people are shouting, but have no clue what they are talking about! Nope they changed the VRMs from previous 70A best ones to now 90A best ones, a drop-in replacement. We talking about a $750+ mobo, with VRM that theoretical could deliver 1344W (TDA21472) and that now can do 1728W...

    Alleged Leaked Details on Intel Comet Lake-S Platform Require... You Guessed It... A New Platform

    Properly, but so what, that's only if you load up all the core's doing OCed video encoding or so, my 9700K@5GHz dose do that to, but if i am gaming my whole system 'only' uses 360W including a slight OCed 1080Ti. The only important Nr is performance per Watt, and that ratio is still good with a...

    MSI Preps the J1800I Bay Trail-Powered Mini-ITX Motherboard

    Like i said you can use a PCIe 4x 8x or even 16x card in a PCIe 1x slot, as even a PCIe 1x v1.0 slot will only be stressed for 40% to supply enough data to saturate the Gbit network port. I really dont get why they did not use a at the back open connector so you can fit in bigger cards, or use...

    MSI Preps the J1800I Bay Trail-Powered Mini-ITX Motherboard

    They still could at least leave the backside of the slot open, so that you can install a PCIe 4x or higher in it, as Bay Trail is still fast enough to run a home server, and a PCIe 8x card with 8x SAS/SATA, like the IBM ServeRAID M1015, can be had for $150, and would make fore a cheap low end...

    ThermoLab GOYO CPU Cooler Pictured

    Actually there is no solder used between the aluminum and the copper heatpipe, as the heatpipe gets pushed in to the smaller holes made in to the fins, and just the pressure of the stretched up aluminum is making the heat transfer better. Look no soldering at all, really, no kidding...

    ThermoLab GOYO CPU Cooler Pictured

    No it dose not at least not really measurable, as the coating is so thin you need really specialized measuring tools before you can tell the difference.

    ThermoLab GOYO CPU Cooler Pictured

    Looks like anodized aluminum, so that not a real problem, and even if its pain the insulating value will be extreme low.
