    NVIDIA "Volta" Architecture Successor Codenamed "Ampere," Expected GTC 2018

    Intel's model is actually the reverse. Consumer chips come out first, and HEDT and Server sometime later. Like now their mainstream consumer line is already getting Coffee Lake, while the Skylake is just making its way onto HEDT and Server platforms.

    German Company to Sell Binned Core i7 8700K With 99.9% Silver Heatspreader

    That doesn't mean you can't bin them again. Intel/AMD will do coarse binning and find chips that do 4.7GHz/4.1GHz to sell as 8700k/1800x, but companies like caseking and siliconlottery will sift through those again to find the ones that do 5.0/4.2.

    NVIDIA GTX 1070 Ti Confirmed with Release of MSI Afterburner 4.4.0 Beta 19

    Also yields could have improved between now and at Pascal's launch. 16nm was very new back then.

    German Company to Sell Binned Core i7 8700K With 99.9% Silver Heatspreader

    Caseking sells tray versions of the 8700k which come with no retail packaging at all. I expect they're binning from those. The ones that OC well get the premium+delid treatment, the rest go back in the pile.

    Which download manager gives the fastest speeds?

    Why not? It's free, open-source and works with and accelerates nearly everything. You can even do stuff like feed it a youtube playlist or an instagram page and it'll build a list of all the pictures/videos in that container so you can leech everything.

    Microsoft Lifts "Spying" Components in Windows 10 for Chinese Government Version

    lol the US gov't probably pressured Microsoft into putting in those 'telemetry' features in the first place.

    Intel Announces the Xeon E7-8894 v4 Processor

    I remember my old DOS-era computers. The Power Management chip alone on this thing could probably run most stuff better than a 386. The L1 and L2 is bigger than the total amount of RAM we had then, and the L3 is bigger than old hard drives.

    AMD Files Patent Infringement Complaint Against LG, Vizio, Others

    Even if you independently invent something that's already patented you're still on the hook for violating the patent. The whole point of a patent is 'I invented this first', so the patent holder can monetize his product for 25 years or so. Elisha Gray and Alexander Graham Bell both worked...

    NVIDIA Telemetry Spooks Privacy-sensitive Users, How to Disable it

    Can confirm this. Updated to 375.70 today then went to Sysinternals Autoruns to look for the telemetry stuff. Most of those keys mentioned in the article aren't even present on my system and the only thing I unchecked on the installer was GFE.

    Seagate Launches World's Fastest Hard Drive for Mission Critical Applications

    There's a huge difference between Seagate desktop drives and their 15ks though. I managed a bunch of IBM boxes that ran Seagate Cheetahs and haven't seen a single one of those drives fail.

    Intel Core "Kaby Lake" Desktop Processors First Wave Detailed

    Nah I don't think so. Nvidia is competing against AMD, so when they make a better part than AMD they price gouge. Intel for a while now has been competing only against itself and its older products and there are already set market prices for each level or category. If they raise prices too...

    NVIDIA Announces the GeForce GTX TITAN X Pascal

    The old handset division they sold to Qualcomm a couple of years ago could probably buy them out now.

    NVIDIA to Unveil GeForce GTX TITAN P at Gamescom

    If it's really GP100 then even at $1200-$1700 this will be a bang for the buck part for those who need the 1/2DP.

    MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X 8 GB

    Holy cow! OC performance actually brings it up to par with a (stock) 1080. Very impressed.

    MSI Announces its Full GeForce GTX 1070 Lineup

    So about that GP104-400 in the Gaming X... is it a fully enabled chip but using GDDR5 instead of GDDR5X? I imagine chips than can run all SMs but whose GDDR5X controllers fail validation would fare well in a 1070ti of sorts.

    Lack of Async Compute on Maxwell Makes AMD GCN Better Prepared for DirectX 12

    That's interesting, and now I wonder how well the old Kepler cards do in that DX12 benchmark. Presumably those come with their compute capabilities intact.
