    AMD Takes a Bigger Revenue Hit than Microsoft from Huawei Ban: Goldman Sachs

    Help, my smartphone was cheap but now it has enslaved me!

    Windows 10 May 2019 Update 1903 Goes Live

    You are probably downloading to a FAT32 formatted medium frick. That would limit file size in general to 2GBs.

    Do you disable hyperthreading? (poll)

    Page 10. Right under the second paragraph of " Javascript Attacks"

    Windows 10 May 2019 Update has been released to the public

    I'm running it. Drivers now must be Universal Windows Driver. Most things are up to date but I did run into a compatability issue with VJoy, a simple virtual joystick I pump input from my xbox one controller into via a custom written feeder program in order to map the guide button. Guess I'm...

    Rugged Laptop...

    I've been inside both. They aren't. "Matsushita electric" is all over toughbook components, which is strange considering they haven't called themselves that for a while. And they don't even use the same hinge system. Well, that was the case at least when I got out of it about 2015... :laugh:

    Do you disable hyperthreading? (poll)

    I don't agree with forced fixes but I think this one does have the potential to become serious as it's better researched. I'd take this one but leave hyperthreading on. Seems the happy medium. There may be a way to avoid it by using the VMWare microcode experiment driver (freeware) to...

    Do you disable hyperthreading? (poll)

    I'm sorry, is this aimed at me? If you want citations, it's all here: https://mdsattacks.com/files/ridl.pdf Look at "Javascript attacks." I do not know everything. But I read the paper, which is a start (that's also how I discovered my yahoo group ripped their code from here, lol). I don't...

    Do you disable hyperthreading? (poll)

    The paper states that stock browser configurations including webassembly are sufficient. That's every modern browser as they ship. Breaking out of sandboxes is kind of what this does. No, it doesn't. The whole idea of javascript is it runs locally from a website you visited. I am not...

    My brother broke his PS4's hdmi port, could I use it for remote play? (he has a ps4 pro now)

    OT but: I once paid them to resurface a bad game disc and it came back cracked. RIP Star Wars Rebellion...

    Rugged Laptop...

    I have been told avoid on that company, but by people who were literally using their toughbook in a barn and thought the durabook was worse. Kinda an odd use case.

    CoolerMaster MasterGel Maker VS Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut

    I doubt many common pastes have that much seperation frankly. Liquid metal 10 degree difference from conventional paste is my general experience. Consistently. Makes sense since it's actually a ball of metal.

    Looking for a tablet that is rugged.

    CF-5x line is probably more up his alley. "Semi-rugged." Still very tough.

    What bugs are they marketing as features? :confused:

    AMD Confirms its Processors are Unaffected by RIDL and Fallout Vulnerabilities

    There is no more evidence the PSP is a backdoor than the Intel ME. They both are just really bad ideas. Yeah, we aren't mac users but cool story bro. Run MDS tool. You can confirm it and no, it looks like right now it needs a microcode command to enable mitigations. AMD is unlikely to...

    Looking for a tablet that is rugged.

    Yeah, the tablets can be had for A LOT less. Not new though. Let me see if I can't find something for you... Do you mind "gently used second hand?" I saw a guy selling one recently, not sure if it's still around but it was like $500. I'm just unsure how modern it is. Keep in mind gently...
