    Axiomtek Unveils MANO540 Mini-ITX SBC

    I don't understand how can this be called SBC. It requires ATX PSU to function. SBCs only require 12V input. If they call this a SBC, then every other mATX, ATX, E-ATX motherboard is also a SBC.

    QNAP Launches 6 Port Unmanaged Switch QSW-2104 Series, Featuring 10GbE and 2.5GbE

    Mikrotik (CRS305-1G-4S+IN) with 4 SPF ports costs 120 eur~ This one with only 2 SFPs costs 3 times more? And this one doesn't have PoE on the 2.5gig ports as far as i can see, so it can't justify its costs.

    Chia Farming Already Causing SSDs to Fail at Scale, Storage Device Shortages on the Horizon

    But theres no surprise here. TBW declared for the SSDs are some magical perfect work scenario nobody knows about. In reality even "sequential" 10GB+ file write gets write ratio of 5x and more. No wonder they die fast because when you buy a drive with 300 TBW label, you only get about 100TBW if...

    Cerebras Updates Wafer Scale Engine on 7 nm - 2.6 Trillion Transistors, 40 GB Onboard SRAM, 850,000 Cores, 12" Wafer

    I think you wouldnt care that much about yields when you can sell single sheet system for million or more. I mean, it costs like 50USD or so to print chips on single wafer, so even with 5% yield rate you would only need 20 wafers before you get the perfect one. Thats only a kilo of USD. Selling...

    be quiet! Introduces Fully Modular Pure Power 11 FM, Upgrades SFX and TFX Models

    The previous TFX models were FSP rebrands at +20eur price. This does look like it is going to be another rebrand. The worst part about all this, is that FSP PSUs are not available. They are all sold out, while BeQuiet still has stock. It seems like FSP doesn't want to sell their brand products...

    I also have SX8200 and SX8200 Pro. There is no noticeable difference in performance, however, there is noticeable difference in degradation. non Pro version seems to degrade much much faster when given many little files to write to it. sx8200 480GB version, 9,2TB total host writes @ 92% health...

    NVIDIA Announces Financial Results for Fourth Quarter and Fiscal 2021

    Revenue from gamers is most likely somewhere around 5%, while the rest 95% of "gaming" market is of course miners. Also, limiting the hash rate on gaming GPUs will increase their revenue even more. Just look at the specs. 320W mining card does less hashes than 320W gaming card. I bet they will...

    HP to Acquire HyperX Gaming Peripherals Brand from Kingston, Which Retains Memory Business

    They are only selling the Brand, because there are no products to sell. We all know that products are generic coming from same factory in china with custom logo on them. Just like million other companies do.
