    Latest Windows 10 Update Causes Machines with CSVs to Freeze or Lock Up

    At the academic institution I work for, we've had over 1000 Windows 7 and Windows 10 PCs go berserk. Thank gawd I got my institution's IT department to let me somewhat control the PCs of my lab by looking the other way. The entire campus's admin, classroom, instructor office, and most of the lab...

    Explaining the transitive property (of equality) to students this semester without outright telling them what to do: y = 2*x^2 - 4 y = x^2 - 4*x + 1 IF a = b AND a = c THEN b = c They failed to understand this...so, IF 10 pennies = 2 nickels AND 10 pennies = 1 dime THEN 2 nickels = 1 dime...

    NVIDIA TITAN RTX Graphics Card Launching Soon

    From my limited experience, I have noticed that the biggest complainers are the ones that want things handed to them, won't take action to change their situation, and, in the worst cases, screw over their family, friends, co-workers, or even their employers. Whatever lemons life throws at you...

    Sharkoon Launches TG4 and SKILLER SGC1 RGB Midi Tower Cases

    At a quick glance, I thought these were the cases Wally World was using with their OP "Overpowered" Gaming Series...the DTW1, DTW2, and DTW3 systems. Good to know that Wally World scraped really low on the case, PSU, and mobo...

    Extravagant Intel Core i9-9900K Packaging Pictured

    Well, it might be called football in 'Murica due to the sport using a prolate spheroid that is almost a foot long...just food for thought.

    I can pull off a better Jen-Hsun Huang "It just works!": Just plug in -1/12 into ANY sequence that can mimic the infinite sum of the natural numbers (Riemann zeta function for s = -1, the sum of the multiplicative inverses of the antennae of the Mandelbrot set, physics models, etc.) and BOOM! It...

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

    Nah, it doesn't quite work out like that after capital gains taxes. But yeah, it's going to help with my both of my nieces' college funds (no kids on my end...thank gawd) and whatever else they'll need.

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

    I did, there was a brief moment in January of 2016 when I invested 10,000 shares at $1.82/share. I bought another $10,000 worth of shares later that year in July when it was $5.57/share. To this day, I think I got lucky - I weighed the research and risk. There were rumors about their new Zen...

    Analyst Firm Susquehanna: "Intel Lost its Manufacturing Leadership"

    I read the actual sourced page. I recommend reading it. Raevenlord is just simplifying the readability of the actuall EETimes article (though, it is not necessarily shorter). I disagree with the style of the headline though but that is for another time. Basically, Intel is willingly giving up...

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2950X

    Good review. It stays objective. I do not want the ramblings of a tech-obsessed junkie. That is why I came here first. I know that others have criticized W1zzard's listing the price as a con; however, he is consistent on his CPU reviews and he is consistent on calling out HEDT CPU prices. Look...

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

    Yeah, ssdpro is correct in that as of JESD79-4B, there is no 3400 standard. I doubt there will ever be one as JEDEC standards tend to go in 133/266 MHz increments. Maybe a 3466 in the future? Probably with DDR5? Yeah, nice link, efikkan. I appreciate it! Official support is 2933, indeed!

    EVGA X299 DARK BIOS Update Includes In-BIOS Stress Test and OC Robot

    I was seriously looking at ASRock's X299 OC Formula specifically for memory overclocking. Thanks for the head's up on that.

    Gigabyte Launches AORUS P850W and P750W Power Supplies

    Mainly due to annoyance and trying to get better scores on reviews due to better voltage ripple. Those kinds of cables might come into play on tight bends as it is annoying having caps near the connectors and all kinds of hell plays out.

    EVGA X299 DARK BIOS Update Includes In-BIOS Stress Test and OC Robot

    Saw a couple videos on this and it looks very promising and it was pretty darn accurate. It will save quite some time - potentially several hours. Most users will probably just roll with this feature and call it a day. Some of us more OCD people will use this to save us time on the ballpark...

    Minus half of a point for caps on major power cables! If it gets reviewed by Jonny, that is. ^_^

    NVIDIA "GT104" Based GeForce GTX 1180 Surfaces on Vietnamese Stores

    1500 USD is a lot of VND...like 34.4 million dong...that is a lot of dong >_< On a more serious note: it looks to be a sidegrade OR near sidegrade for those with 1080 Ti/Titan X (Pascal)/Titan Xp. The high rollers are going to have to wait until 1Q OR even 1H of 2019 for their replacement...

    Intel CEO Brian Krzanich Resigns - For Having Sex With Colleague

    Relationship? Yes. Sex with a fellow employee? I don't see that anywhere in the story. Have to agree with dj here. The headlines are there for the clickies.
