    HDMI 2.1 Specification Sets New Resolution Standard

    That's not even a cogent argument. A TV I bought a decade ago will still work. A TV I bought 20 years ago will still work. Converting to digital source from analog source has less than nothing to do with making people upgrade "every few years" since of these digital standards we're talking force...

    HDMI 2.1 Specification Sets New Resolution Standard

    How does that have literally anything to do with digital vs analog in display tech? That's complete nonsense.

    Damn, they've just leap frogged ahead of DisplayPort.

    Intel to Remove Legacy BIOS Support from Motherboard UEFI in 2020

    Isn't the only way to use USB installation media is if you have CSM enabled? That's my only issue with this as I've never been able to get it to work on any of my machines without CSM enabled.

    NETGEAR Launches Two Gorgeous Ethernet Switches for Your Home or Office

    It's literally explained in the article that some people may want something that looks better than what they currently offer. Especially if they can't or do not want to place their switch in a closet or something. I for one appreciate switches that have the cables coming out the back instead of...

    EA Forces Shut-Down of Fan-Run Servers for no Longer Supported Battlefield Games

    The issue at hand seems to be that they were distributing basically cracked/modified versions of the game to utilize non-Gamespy servers, not the fact that they were using fan run servers in and of themselves. I don't know if possible but if they could find a way to enable network support...

    NZXT Introduces the H Series Cases

    Just set the top fans to be intake instead. It's what I do in my Air 540 with my H110 cooler.

    lmao, are you fucking kidding me? My computer case needs to be connected to the cloud now too?

    Optane 900P SSD, Successor to the Intel 750 Series

    None of these would work in a portable since their form factors are U.2 and PCI-e add-in cards. Looks like Intel is still avoiding the M.2 form factor.

    Core i7-8700K Reviewed by Lab501

    There's only two reasons to use TIM over solder between the die and the IHS: 1) It's cheaper 2) The die needs to be big enough to not have to worry about it cracking after applying the solder to it You know where neither of those reasons matter when it comes to CPUs? In the HEDT market where...

    Piriform Hacked, CCleaner August Versions (v5.33.6162) Injected, Compromised

    No one believes Windows 10 is the most flawed because it isn't true. In every single technical way, Windows 10 is far harder to compromise than Windows 7 ever was or will be. The same was true for Windows 8. Ever since Microsoft began giving a shit about security of their system with Windows...

    Piriform Hacked, CCleaner August Versions (v5.33.6162) Injected, Compromised

    Glad I install CCleaner through Chocolatey for the referenced reason in the article about it not having a default automatic updater.

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1900X Core Configuration Detailed

    I'm not saying they can't, I'm saying I don't think AMD wants to. If you look at how the 8-core is laid out like that, I'm not sure they'd want to add 2-cores to one of the active dies, or 1 core to each active die to achieve the 10-core layout. Time will figure that out, but I don't see them...

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1900X Core Configuration Detailed

    By disabling cores and their associated cache architecture in series of 2. You can't do that to get to 10 cores.

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1900X Core Configuration Detailed

    I don't think we'll be seeing 10-cores because each CCX alone is 4-cores each. You can't get to 10 that way without doing some funky partial CCX disabling.

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1900X Core Configuration Detailed

    It makes perfect sense when you consider that Intel Skylake-X platform has 6-core and 8-core models at the base. This provide an 8-core model to compete with those cheaper HEDT chips as well as providing all the benefits the X399 platform offers that the X370 doesn't.

    AMD to Enable NVMe RAID on X399 Threadripper Platform

    Doesn't really matter how many use it - it's something AMD gets to shove in Intel's face with their VROC bullshit and having to buy a fucking dongle just to get it to work. Any feature they can use against their giant of a competitor is a good thing.

    Alienware Introduces AW3418DW and AW3418HW Ultrawide, Curved Displays

    Curved displays with an Ultrawide aspect ratio are awesome. Curving other monitors with like a 16:9 ratio is pointless due to the shape of the monitor itself. Really fills your FoV on an Ultrawide though.

    NVIDIA at Gamescom 2017: ShadowPlay Highlights, Ansel AI Style Transfer and More

    Ansel is some really cool tech and I wish more applications - even outside of games - would take advantage of it. Taking a screenshot right out of the buffer is a simple idea but brilliant. I don't use it a ton, but I've gotten some really beautiful vista shots in The Witcher 3 at exceedingly...

    Microsoft Windows Mixed Reality Push to Include Steam Support, Halo VR

    The fact this won't need a bunch of IR blasters set up around your room/desk makes this quite a tantalizing offer. Looking forward to seeing reviews of the production units and how well it can still motion track without external points of reference. If it's using any similar tech to HoloLens it...

    G.SKILL Announces New DDR4 Specifications for AMD Ryzen Threadripper

    Can the memory controller even overclock to handle 3600Mhz? I thought 3200 was the highest anyone has been able to get it?
