    Intel Core i7-1165G7 "Tiger Lake" Mauls Ryzen 7 4700U "Renoir" in Most Geekbench Tests

    10900k scores higher in single core GB 4.4.2, so no miracles to be had here. Just a test that performs a lot better on intel for whatever reason combined with avx-512 (which is almost completely absent in all actual pc software people use).

    AMD B550 Chipset Motherboards Start Selling

    It’s cheaper to manufacture. Not everyone has limitless budget or needs pcie4.

    LG's 48-inch OLED Gaming TV with G-SYNC Goes on Sale This Month

    That’s actually quite worrying for people who calibrate to dark room environments and watch rec.709 footage. If the panel is truly only 10bits and the peak brightness of the panel is 800 nits, you get less than 7bits of grayscale gradation if calibrated to 80 nits (standard value for dark room...

    LG's 48-inch OLED Gaming TV with G-SYNC Goes on Sale This Month

    Brightness and colour gamut are quite separate things. 8bit is ok for brightness of up to ~80nits in a dark room, any brighter and you can easily see (greyscale) banding in dark scenes. If we assume the same ”dark room” setting, in order to raise the maximum brightness without introducing...

    Comprehensive Core i9-10900K Review Leaked: Suggests Intel Option Formidable

    The CCX topology change just means better IPC in some applications, and is thus included in the possible ”20% IPC increase”. (application specific)Performance = (application specific)IPC * clock speed, there is no CCX topology in that equation. 20% increase in IPC and some 200MHz in clock...

    Comprehensive Core i9-10900K Review Leaked: Suggests Intel Option Formidable

    Their puget bech results are off by about 20% for the AMD systems when compared to benches run by puget itself. Seems a bit iffy.

    Ryzen 7 3700X Trades Blows with Core i7-10700, 3600X with i5-10600K: Early ES Review

    65W indeed, just with a +- 170% margin. :’-)

    AMD Processors No Longer Crippled with Latest MATLAB MKL Update

    Then your best bet is waiting for apple laptops with apple cpu’s. Intel is not going to integrate wifi or 5g to their cpu’s.

    AMD Ryzen 9 4900HS Torpedoes Intel's Core i9 Mobile Lineup, Fastest Mobile Processor

    check the keys more carefully. That model is customized to the uk market, and should have ISO layout but does not. All they did was split the left shift and even that split line looks like shit.

    AMD Ryzen 9 4900HS Torpedoes Intel's Core i9 Mobile Lineup, Fastest Mobile Processor

    It will be outdated in 2021 when the next gen AMD mobile chips get here. Nothing new and better is coming between this and then in the mobile space.

    Intel Processors Hit with LVI Security Vulnerabilities, Mitigation Hits Performance Hard

    There are a lot easier attack vectors that can be utilized for unpatched systems. For example the openSSL vuneralbilities from a year ago. Do you think that should have been left unpatched as well?

    Intel Processors Hit with LVI Security Vulnerabilities, Mitigation Hits Performance Hard

    Do you imply that the inspectre tool does not work? You can also make hardware changes to limit the number of mitigations that are loaded when the OS starts.

    Intel Processors Hit with LVI Security Vulnerabilities, Mitigation Hits Performance Hard

    Well then use the old kernel until the new one is faster with mitigations than the old one without mitigations. Gentoo works as well, if you wish to have better control over what security patches you wish to have in your computer. As for windows you can use inSpectre tool to make your computer...

    Intel Processors Hit with LVI Security Vulnerabilities, Mitigation Hits Performance Hard

    How insane can you get? If no bug bounties are present, the findings could be sold on the black market instead. Now the work is effectively incentivized making the black marked angle a lot more difficult to pursue. The mitigations are important in this scheme, as otherwise we will end up with...

    Researchers Find Unfixable Vulnerability Inside Intel CPUs

    Yes, the CVE states that that method does require physical access. The attack vector however is visible even without it, they just haven’t had the resources to make a proof of concept(s) yet which are necessary for the CVE’s. ”We think there might be many ways to exploit this vulnerability in...

    What a sick burn! Too bad that this allows for things to happen even without physical access.

    Researchers Find Unfixable Vulnerability Inside Intel CPUs

    Read the original article. Physical access is not required. The first proof of concept needed it, but they think that it is possible to work around that limitation. Lots of things yes, but things that are virtually undetectable by any means less so. Also one can argue that the risk is ”0” for...

    Researchers Find Unfixable Vulnerability Inside Intel CPUs

    The article is not correct in this regard. Local access should be enough, as in able to execute some code with raised privileges. So you are safe if you never execute 3rd party code. Time to disable that javascript from your browser.

    Pure 12V PSU Standard, Named ATX12VO, Debuts Later This Year

    Then don’t use sata devices? They already get a cable from the motherboard, big deal. U2 is a better alternative anyway.

    FSP at CES 2020: A Next-Gen Pure 12V PSU, and a UPS That Wants to See the World

    Legacy ports don’t have the cc pin used to communicate power delivery config to host, so the split would work without a hitch (the pd chip would just default to 5V and stay dormant). TI also has a two port variant of the same chip in the same size as far as I know, so only one extra chip per two...

    FSP at CES 2020: A Next-Gen Pure 12V PSU, and a UPS That Wants to See the World

    http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/slvsf34/slvsf34.pdf This one would be $2 and I’m sure there are cheaper options available. You just pass through the cc pins to it and it handles the power delivery independently from the other communication stuff already present with any usb3.x host controller. 5A max...

    FSP at CES 2020: A Next-Gen Pure 12V PSU, and a UPS That Wants to See the World

    If we skip the 20V option at this point because it’s not efficient to produce, we would need just a new 9V regulator and a plane for that, everything else already exists on motherboards. A single 8pin eps gives 336W and two would suffice as a replacement for the 24 pin while providing silly...
