    AMD Confirms its Processors are Unaffected by RIDL and Fallout Vulnerabilities

    Simultaneous Multithreading is the name of the technology Hyper Threading is just branding.

    Sennheiser GSP 550

    Being honest, for 'gaming DSP' purposes if it must be USB, you are much better off with their GSX1000 + GSP 500 rather than the 550 IMO. That being said, you start getting into some very expensive territory, for a set of cans that simply aren't well tuned for music.

    AMD Ryzen 3000 "Zen 2" a Memory OC Beast, DDR4-5000 Possible

    It should be noted it isn't exactly all roses on the other side of the fence. Since jumping over to a 9900K, my G.Skill DDR4 3866 4x16GB Dual Rank kit I can only hit 3200mhz with. On my AsRock X470 Taichi w/ 2700X, I could hit about 3333mhz. I know I'm a unique usecase with full DIMM population...

    Microsoft Plans to Release PowerToys for Windows 10

    For those who want to readd control panel to start\right click, run the below in Powershell as Admin $x is the Base64 encode for Control Panel. Code isn't mine, and you should verify what random code you pick up in an internet forum. Be nicer if Microsoft just gave us a tick box to readd it...

    AMD Radeon RX 3080 XT "Navi" to Challenge RTX 2070 at $330

    Whats this 10% of die space shen, just basic bucket math, you can see that tensor/rt takes up about half of an SM, with SM's taking up about half of the die, you have at least 20% of the die dedicated to making RT work (on the basis that RT is currently too slow to run without supersampling)...

    AMD Radeon RX 3080 XT "Navi" to Challenge RTX 2070 at $330

    I'll still mock the shit out of it, and I own a 2080 Ti. No other way to cut it, image fidelity tanks with them enabled, with the only game I even consider turning on these technologies for being Metro Exodus, with every other implementation not worth the hit to FPS and fidelity. There needs to...

    Noctua NH-U12A

    I've been using U12's on pretty well much everything for years, as its combination of performance and clearance are just outstanding. That being said, Noctua have been teasing for over a year a black nickel plated cooler which is still MIA, and a continuing refusal to adjust to aesthetic trends...

    AMD "Navi" Graphics Card PCB Pictured, uses GDDR6

    Wouldn't be surprised if the memory controller is setup for HBM and GDDR6 - the memory price issue has been a PITA for AMD for a while now, but I can also see semi-custom partners really wanting the simplified layout of a HBM stack for cooling and chassis design.

    NVIDIA GTX 1650 Lacks Turing NVENC Encoder, Packs Volta's Multimedia Engine

    This feels like such an own goal by Nvidia, sigh.

    AMD Wins Back Three Graphics Patents from LG

    I have I think 11 years warranty on mine. First two years have been fine, and being honest, if its irretreviably broken at 12 years, so be it, $100 a year for a fridge isn't the end of the world.

    Why would they though? Windows is their product, and its not like Windows doesn't have competition these days.

    Microsoft Reconsiders: No More Forced Updates in Windows 10

    So many of you guys need to grow up. Just set updates to delay for 1-2 days for security patches, and 5-30 days for feature patches. Wallah, no more broken updates.

    Valve Index VR HMD Details Leak Via Premature Store Page Release, Ships June 2019

    The more leaks that come out on this, the less enthused I'm getting. Inside out tracking + wireless + virtuallink (with options for outside in tracking) are really my minimal buy ins on the tech. Oh well.

    ASUS Rolls Out ROG Swift PG349Q, a 120Hz Curved Ultrawide

    Only two years late, and will likely be priced higher than the competition. Used to be an ASUS fanboi, but got pretty sick of a lack of innovation and ASUS tax.

    Valve Confirms First-Party VR Headset Titled Valve Index, Launches May 2019

    Res+Inside Out Tracking+Wireless (with the ability to enhance precision with light towers and use wired of course, in a price that doesn't cost the same as a mid range PC). Those three things beat most of the adoption issues with VR IMO, so if Valve can do that with combined with its rather...

    RTX and DLSS in Shadow of the Tomb Raider

    A few of those comparison screenshots had scenes looking better with RTX off, and I see DLSS is still murdering image quality. The first probably points at that games need to be better developed with RT in mind, as deficiencies in geometry and light-sources can be overcome with lightmaps...

    NVIDIA to Enable DXR Ray Tracing on GTX (10- and 16-series) GPUs in April Drivers Update

    I'm not sold its decades, neither do I think a dedicated ASIC is needed. What is needed however is to be able to divide FP32 and INT32 units down to the smallest instruction possible, pack instructions into the one unit, and execute at the lowest cost. This will enable units on die not being...

    NVIDIA to Enable DXR Ray Tracing on GTX (10- and 16-series) GPUs in April Drivers Update

    Quite the opposite. DXR promises to shave 1000's of development hours by not having to paint lightmaps. The biggest thing that is currently holding back DX12 though is the Windows 7 install base with no DX12 support, hence the reason why Microsoft just opened up DX12 to Windows 7 on a case by...

    Borderlands 3 Possibly Exclusive to Epic Games Store on PC, Fans Worry Based on Old Tweet

    Might just leave a pro tip to set any stores you dont generally used to delayed startup, thus your boot times shouldn't be quite so shit and first run screen quite so cluttered.
