    Integral Has Done It Again, Announces World-First 512 GB MicroSD Card

    Now create a U3 version of this.. to guarantee a minimum of 30MB/s write speed. The issues with huge capacities is that they compromise performance for more storage.. but don't forgot, if they only guarantee 10MB/s write speed. then they can guarantee you that you can fill it in at least 14...

    If it doesn't support both lossy & lossless + alpha channels + standard & custom color palette (like 256 colors, 16.7M, HDR 10 & 12bit) then it's not modern enough.

    Intel Could Ditch AMD dGPU Die on Future Core G-series MCMs with "Arctic Sound"

    I wonder if these dGPU's will do good for miners, then a $200 one will be sold for $600.. seriously, if these will only be for pGPU on the MCM is okay, but not a separate GPU card, they will need serious shit to go this high. Raja will have a great FineWine(tm) by then.

    VESA Announces DP8K, HBR-Supporting Cables and Work on Next-Gen DP

    I think for future proof system a single cable should be able to handle: Full USB 3.1 gen2. 4K 144Hz HDR (12bit). This without compression. and things to spare also. With compression, without USB (or with 5gbps USB 3.1 gen1).. it better can handle 2x 4K HDR streams at 120Hz.

    NVIDIA Quietly Rolls Out GeForce MX130 and MX110 Notebook GPUs

    With the new Intel+AMD iGPU the MX150 it self is somehow pointless now, and maybe these new babies will be a hard sell.
