    Noctua Presents NA-TPG1 Thermal Paste Guard for AMD AM5

    LOL Noctua definitely is progressive. I have been paranoid everytime I see those dents on these AM5 guys.

    Xtrfy M42 Wireless

    Maybe I missed some others but I really like the detachable back. I know what the holes are for but they are really also good at collecting dirt. Being able to clean it better is critical.

    GIGABYTE RTX 4090 Goes on Sale in Hong Kong Well Ahead of Time, But it's a Paperweight Until Drivers Release

    Rumor has it they were sitting in the warehouse since Aug, and really just waiting for the 3000 series to clear after the ETH upgrade.

    Toshiba's Double-Transmon Coupler Will Realize Faster, More Accurate Superconducting Quantum Computers

    Can't say I wasn't confused to see this on TPU, even I am from this field.

    GoPro Launches Three New HERO11 Black Cameras That Send Highlight Videos to Your Phone

    The sensor is upgraded and is now larger, I hope this helps solve their low light weakness. PS: Own Hero10.

    Akasa Unveils Updated Maxwell Pro Plus Case with LGA1700 Support

    Really like their cases and their persistent in making them, had an Euler S from long time ago and it was amazing.

    Microsoft Plans Windows 12 for 2024

    This is completely normal, as 11 is at best a repeat of 8/8.1. The actual usable release has been every another version since XP.

    It’s probably redundant to say “in the year”.”

    Time to consider Chia, or simply go PoS?

    ASUS Radeon RX 6500 XT TUF Gaming

    I still remember I paid $249 for my RX 480 in 2016. This shit is like 10% faster than that, asks for $350, in 2022. I call that an insult.

    Kingston NV1 1 TB

    Looking at the relative performance page, it looks like there is no reason to get this over SN570

    Sapphire GPRO X080 and X060 Mining GPUs Based on AMD RDNA2 Navi Architecture Surface

    29 MH/s at 60W isn't really that impressive. I know the price of current GPUs are insane, but just FYI my 3-4 years old Vegas do 40 MH/s+ at 100W or below, and fact is also they were way cheaper when I got them.

    Looks like M1 Max is not that great for hashing Eth

    I remember M1 did like 2 MH/s only, I wouldn't expect M1 Pro/Max to go much faster. Plus the break even will likely take forever, or at least much longer than getting a GPU.

    Intel Core i9-12900K

    Well I do hope it at least makes 5950X cheaper
