    AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 Processor to Power SMACH Z Handheld Gaming PC

    First report from TGS: https://boilingsteam.com/tgs-2018-smach-z-news-and-upcoming-milestones/ And some footage of a dumb box: BTW, there's another core flaw in this project: they've forgotten about Valve Corp. patent no. US20150105152A1... That's another lawsuit waiting to go kaboom.

    Some program like MCshield for usb protection?

    As I said before, just use KAV. It has basic internet security features, including SSL cert checks, cryptomining malware, bad redirects, malicious/suspicious javascript etc. All you need, in a nice tidy package. Plus, most modern browsers already have built-in security features (nothing...

    Razer Launches Ifrit Headset With #noheadsethair Focus

    That's before you try cheap Razer knockoffs. I have a large mat at the office (2y.o.) and a newer desktop surface. Works good, keeps the color. All you need to do is throw it into a washing machine twice a year.

    Full time Linux user and gamer?

    You can thank hardware/chipset manufacturers, who's directly responsible for driver development. If you want to direct your frustration in the right direction, you can mail a dildo to Netgear, or send a big "Fuck you" postcard to Realtek. None of these complications are related to Linux in...

    Full time Linux user and gamer?

    That's because Linus is not the sharpest hammer in the axe rack. If we ignore proton for a sec, all you need to do is: a) Install proprietary drivers, which you'll probably find popping-up in the tray soon after your first updates get installed b) Install Steam from Ubuntu software center or...

    ASUS RX560-O2G issue

    One of my buddies just brought over 3x RX560 from Gigabyte with the same issue. He used those for mining XMR for a few months, before giving up and ultimately parting out the rig. Cards were fully functional in his PC (Ubuntu+some modded drivers), but the first buyer returned the card within a...

    No Post Debug Code 00

    You can do the following beforehand: 1) take out everything, disassemble the whole system 2) Use compressed air to blow any dust or dirt particles from the CPU socket and RAM, maybe clean all RAM slots with isopropyl alcohol and a toothbrush 3) Start with installing a CPU only. Try to boot it up...

    No Post Debug Code 00

    So, the behavior is the same on your new mobo? Have you asked what exactly did these guys attempted to do? E.g. test it out w/ their parts, flash new BIOS (I mean raw dump via ext. programmer) or replace SPI flash IC in case the old one failed? Those mainstream PC repair shops are awful and...

    Some program like MCshield for usb protection?

    Just install any free antivirus, like Avast or Kaspersky AV (Free version). I personally prefer KAV, because it's very light, does not occupy much resources, and has no ads or annoying popups, like avast. Been using it since the day it released - no complaints so far.

    Full time Linux user and gamer?

    I'd gladly switch to Ubuntu full-time, but I can't. Not because of games, but because most of my work-related stuff (part-time second[...or third] job) only works on Windows. Plus, Quake Champions has no Linux port and is not very good at running though Wine (blank screen or crashes, UI missing...

    Intel to Move Select Chipset Fabrication Back to 22nm in Wake of 14 nm Silicon Constraints

    So, if their 22nm chipsets aren't efficient enough to be sold in US, then tell me please how Z370 or X299 does just fine on 22nm? Or why didn't this energy commission, or EPA, or Greenpeace, or antarctic penguins swept up all of those uber-inefficient Ryzen motherboards w/ 55nm chipsets? Maybe...

    Intel to Move Select Chipset Fabrication Back to 22nm in Wake of 14 nm Silicon Constraints

    LoL. People see 22nm and immediately panic, thinking that all CPUs and SoCs will go backwards. @Raevenlord , you should probably highlight words "chipset" and "H310" in bold, to make it easier for people with attention span of a hamster to jump to proper conclusions without reading the text...

    AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 Processor to Power SMACH Z Handheld Gaming PC

    You are getting confused again. A prototype is an early version of the product which has its core functionality, but may not look the same as the final product. A dumb/empty shell that looks like a final product is called a mockup. Mockups are not prototypes. A shell with a screen and a...

    AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 Processor to Power SMACH Z Handheld Gaming PC

    Possible TGS attendance, possibly by Smach. It all boils down to whether the prototype is ready. "Aiming to present" and "attending fo'reelz" are two different things.
