    Apple announces Mac transition to Apple silicon

    Some people will try to downplay this but this is a major blow for intel. Performance per watt used to be their strong point.

    Intel's Comet Lake Absence at CES Reportedly Related to Power Consumption Wall

    I remember the time when intel shills roamed this site (and others) making false claims like that. Of course the Q6600 could never go that high on air ...not even close!

    AMD Ryzen 9 3950X Beats Intel Core i9-10980XE by 24% in 3DMark Physics

    I was an intel user and I'm now switching to a 3950X mini itx for my CAD workstation needs. What's interesting to me is that the upgrade path is pretty clear. The ryzen 4000 series is 6-7 months away and will be backwards compatible. How awesome is that?

    NVIDIA Influencing YouTube Tech Journalists' Product-Placements, Alleges Whistleblower

    I wouldn't be surprised if all companies did this. Even if this particular whistle-blower is a con, does anyone really trust the media? I think it's very hard to be subjective in this day and age and all these web "journalists" / "influencers" / "bloggers" need to make a living...

    Intel Core i9-9900KS to Cost around $600

    W1zzard did a review of the 3900X and found that on average it performed worse than the even the i5 9400F in 1440p gaming. https://www.techpowerup.com/review/amd-ryzen-9-3900x/23.html

    Intel Core i9-9900KS to Cost around $600

    Maybe. People are still willing to pay extra for whatever gaming performance advantage they can get. Pay Intel that is... LOL!

    Is competitive gaming importand to you?

    Intel Core i9-9900KS to Cost around $600

    I see this as a gaming specific component, so... - Recycled technology: How? It's just a new addition to the current lineup - Still 8 core: It's more than enough for gaming - High price compared to competition: What competition? The 9900K? Amd can't compete with either in gaming - Still has...

    Intel Core i9-9900KS to Cost around $600

    It's a bit higher than what i was expecting to be honest but still very reasonable for what it is. I wonder what the percentage of high end gamers is, compared to content creators, within the PC desktop market.

    New Information on Intel's Upcoming i9-9900KS Processor Outed - 127 W TDP

    So basicaly a cherry picked 9900K with a decent factory overclock and the best gaming performance on the market right now. If the price is right, it's definitely worth considering. The TDP is a non issue IMO.

    Intel Adds More L3 Cache to Its Tiger Lake CPUs

    Intel can’t compete with AMD in IPC. They’ve lost that battle. The reason you sometimes see higher Single Thread results is because those intel cpus run at higher frequencies and the software running is probably intel optimized. I can’t believe it either!

    AMD Ryzen 9 3900X

    Hi W1zzard! Thanx for the review! I'm a little curious about your findings on the thermal characteristics of the 3900X. A lot of other reviewers seem to suggest that the 3900X runs cooler and for much longer than the 9900K...

    Microsoft to Reportedly Use AMD Silicon on Its Next Gen Surface Devices

    I doubt they'll use AMD in anything Surface as those products are targeted towards Apple Switchers. I never understood why anyone would pay more than 300$ for a computer with intel integrated graphics...

    AMD AGESA Detailed, Fixes Zen2 Boost Issues

    My AMD K6-2 @450Mhz still runs fine. What’s your point exactly? Are you implying that AMD cpus are not as well made?
