    AMD "Vega 20" GPU Not Before Late Q1-2019

    That doesn't mean anything. It's an architecture roadmap. Architecture != Gaming products.

    AMD "Vega 20" GPU Not Before Late Q1-2019

    So you're running with the story that Vega 20 which has only been announced as a Radeon Instinct card will be late but won't be late in actuality? Click bait 2/8. Fabricated story 5/7.

    Is that a serious question?

    Chrome 69 Adds Forced Login, Threatens Privacy: How to Fix it

    Isn't the headline false if Google denies the allegations and explains why it appears you're automatically logged in? Yet the headline is written to make people click only to find out it isn't so cut and dry...

    More Buyers for AMD Due to Intel CPU Shortages, OEMs Unhappy

    We're talking about 7nm. There are only two 7nm foundries: TSMC and Samsung so your correction makes little sense. And it's very optimistic to expect chiplet designs when we aren't there yet. The rumors are about massive off-die LLC. However you're adding latency when moving things off-die even...

    More Buyers for AMD Due to Intel CPU Shortages, OEMs Unhappy

    That would be Samsung. No other choices. Generally Samsung hasn't been as good as TSMC though so it could cause problems.

    You could also do it with an APU like 2400G.

    Intel "Whiskey Lake-U" Core Processor Lineup Detailed

    I think you're misunderstanding something. It's 15W TDP at 1.8 GHz. I wouldn't be surprised if it'll surpass 50W when running full boost.

    AMD Announces 2nd Generation Ryzen Threadripper 2000, up to 32 Cores/64 Threads!

    According to the slide Komplett should also take pre-orders so I'm guessing they're just slow to update their site.

    Transcend Releases JetDrive 855/850 PCIe NVMe SSD Upgrade Kit for Mac Computers

    Internally? No. Apple uses a proprietary connector instead of m.2 (or soldered-on drives in the latest Pro models) but if you wish to use it externally with the included enclosure in the one SKU, then all you need is a thunderbolt port.

    Basemark Launches Free Multiplatform GPU Benchmark

    Despite the claim it took two years to make, it's remarkable how fast obvious bugs have been found. If you run the benchmark minimized it'll double your score. That's a terrible design. Tl;dr would not recommend.

    Acer Readies Predator Helios 500 Variant with Ryzen 7 2700 and RX Vega 56

    This will undoubtedly be at reduced TDPs similar to Nvidia's Max-Q. That means lower voltage and lower clock speeds.

    AMD B450 Mid-range Chipset Detailed

    Tl;dr yes. Yes, that should be the case. They're both attached to the CPU as well. The PCI-E config should be based on 24 lanes (16 to GPU, 4 to m.2 NVMe and 4 to chipset). According to the table B450 doesn't allow multi GPU and it limits the lanes available to the chipset and therefore less...
