    Xerox Corporation Tries To Acquire HP Inc.

    I mean yes and no I guess what you are saying, but at the same time Xerox pretty much invented the OS or at least what Microsoft turned around ripped off and stole essentially.

    Intel 10th Gen Core i9 XE "Cascade Lake-X" Possible Availability Date Revealed

    Oh how I wish Intel would go back to making dual core and quad core chips only...:roll:thanks AMD!

    Rambus Achieves Industry-Leading GDDR6 Performance at 18 Gbps

    It's weird seeing Rambus doing something other than sueing...I'm not sure how I feel about this...

    Biostar Racing X570GT

    Yeah I tend to like MATX form factor compact, but not so compact that it's overkill like ITX and will have to make clear sacrifices. I don't tend to feel like I'm missing much overall between MATX and ATX. Another aspect of MATX is it often has wifi and better LAN NIC's built in than many ATX...

    AMD CEO Lisa Su Talks About 3rd Gen Ryzen Boost Issue in Q3 Earnings Call

    "AMD shares fell around 1.96% on Tuesday and closed the trading day at $33.03. On a YTD (year-to-date) basis, AMD has risen around 78.9% as of Tuesday. In comparison, the S&P 500 has risen around 21.14% YTD. Intel (INTC) and Nvidia (NVDA) have risen 22.4% and 52.3%, respectively, YTD." Seems...

    Microsoft Details DirectX Raytracing Tier 1.1, New DirectX 12 Features

    The human eye automatically culls all that geometric mesh detail it see's that isn't visible instantly which shows how dumb GPU's are still. Another aspect of the mesh shader optimizations is that every pixel saved is a pixel earned so to speak. Can always apply that power and heat waste for...

    Microsoft Details DirectX Raytracing Tier 1.1, New DirectX 12 Features

    These mesh shader optimizations will be key to enabling ray tracing at acceptable performance in complex lighting/shading scenes. At least that's my thoughts on it. Not just that though they'll be really useful for animation as well if they can lumped together and utilized jointly to make...

    InWin 309

    It would look better as a rack/desk case honestly. Would be cool to program some Tetris blocks patterns on it though. Pricey for the gimmick that is though. It's clearly aimed at people with too much money to burn.

    Xiaomi Launches Mi Surface Display Gaming Monitors

    It's actually surprisingly reasonably priced relative to what it offers.

    InWin 309

    That LED matrix display built is is awesome. A rack mounted version would be cool as well and arguably look even better. If this thing can work as a nice 8 band/track music visualizer that's awesome. That and just use the remaining LED's to display some pixel graphics that could change via the...

    Razer Introduces the World's First Optical Laptop Keyboard

    Perhaps just to help reduce bottoming out as well as quicker return. The smaller one might just be to cut down on bottoming out quickly while the larger one is stiffer and bigger for a quicker return.

    AMD TRX40 Chipset Not Compatible with 1st and 2nd Gen Threadrippers

    They've got a long ways to go to match Intel's overall shenanigans however. Honestly I get it with the HEDT platform and with the memory channel changes. I'm sure this HEDT board replacing x399 will probably last a additional generation or two on top of that. It would have been good if things...

    Which 3rd Gen Ryzen chip are you most excited about?

    TR is going to be real interesting. If like the lowest end TR could end up being AMD's highest end gaming chip if they do things correctly. Meanwhile the chips above that might not necessarily offer more in terms of gaming uplift, but offer more in productivity w/o taking anything away from the...

    Ghost Recon Breakpoint PC System Requirements Revealed

    You're looking at the Avg/Max settings in that scenario BTW which is far from the best representation look at the 1% percentile instead where the CPU is of more vital importance and where it impacts frame rates and input lag in a more important way. To put it bluntly a Lamborghini that stutters...

    Xilinx Announces Virtex UltraScale+, the World's Largest FPGA

    Always been a huge fan of FPGA's they are really hype to me because they are reconfigurable. I think we'll see really crazy things with FPGA's in the future from Intel trickle out. I'm pretty sure a lot of audio DSP chips were nothing, but glorified FGPA's if I remember right. Like I believe the...

    Ghost Recon Breakpoint PC System Requirements Revealed

    CPU still has more work to do per frame at higher resolution. On the other hand a lower resolution the GPU bottleneck shifts away toward the CPU side because it can render frames more rapidly thus the CPU utilization increases along with that.

    NVIDIA CEO Says Buying a GPU Without Ray Tracing "Is Crazy"

    Just make 4 chips for R/G/B/Y with something like X many pixels of that color they display each and let a I/O manage them and turn on or off portions of those chips. SLI/Crossfire is too developer dependent let the hardware just calculate how many colors of a particular type are required. GPU...

    NVIDIA Prepares GeForce 436.02 Gamescom Special Graphics Drivers

    I don't bother with GFE cause it's gaudy and offers nothing compelling to me that would make me want to. I'll stick to nvidia inspector and/or reshade if I need "user experience" NVCP I basically only use for resolution/aspect ratio changes or sometimes to adjust the gamma it serves little...

    NVIDIA Prepares GeForce 436.02 Gamescom Special Graphics Drivers

    Yeah there are some pretty gaudy websites and UI's. It could defiantly be worse, but at the same time it is a pretty fair point on just how dated it looks. Just the same how often do you really use it to the point it matters in the first place? I mean there is a bit of a reason why it hasn't...

    AMD Ryzen 9 3900X, SMT on vs SMT off, vs Intel 9900K

    Wonder what happens if you just keep SMT enabled and use MSConfig to limit it to Ryzen Cores. Like what if you limit the SMT to 1 thread per CCX or just use the SMT threads for only one CCX and leave the other untouched? Middle ground compromise perhaps?

    Creative Formally Launches the Sound Blaster AE-7 and AE-9 Audiophile Sound Cards
