    GIGABYTE Aorus Wants to Sell Every Component Inside Your Gaming PC

    Until Gigabyte starts producing their own CPU's it will not be "a 100% Gigabyte gaming desktop". I'm not the one to nitpick on things but this is mentioned two times in this article...

    Cooler Master Announces the MasterBox MB510L

    I don't understand why we went 40 years back in time in case design and now having to unscrew 4 screws every time you want to open your case is the standard. My Cooler Master Cosmos S ain't going nowhere anytime soon. Pulling on a simple lever to unlock the side panel is, like Americans say: the...

    PUBG Ransomware Forces Users to Play PUBG to Decrypt Their Files

    I cannot believe what TPU has become. Encrypting and decrypting all files on a computer is not a joke. A lot of things can go wrong and some of the files might become corrupted and unusable. Anyone who writes for TPU should know better than to advocate something like this...

    European Commission Fines Qualcomm €997M for Abuse of Dominant Market Position

    I don't know why you would say that. Maybe your favorite sport is throwing random "insults" to random people, you know nothing about, hoping that it would stick...

    European Commission Fines Qualcomm €997M for Abuse of Dominant Market Position

    None of this business was being done in the EU but on other continents. Nothing these two did was related to selling of products, it was strictly related to manufacturing. Those royalties were probably related to US patents filed at the US patent office and spoken of between two US companies, on...

    European Commission Fines Qualcomm €997M for Abuse of Dominant Market Position

    Read the article again, this has nothing to do with patents and licensing. I quote from the article above: "Qualcomm paid billions of US Dollars to a key customer, Apple, so that it would not buy from rivals. These payments were not just reductions in price - they were made on the condition that...

    European Commission Fines Qualcomm €997M for Abuse of Dominant Market Position

    Yeah, exactly that's why I was saying this is an extortion tax to be able to sell in the EU. Don't get me wrong, I am not really defending Qualcomm here. I quote from Engadget: "In 2015 Qualcomm was hit with a $975 million anti-monopoly fine in China, in 2016, the Korea Fair Trade Commission...

    European Commission Fines Qualcomm €997M for Abuse of Dominant Market Position

    Yeah but the thing is that Intel has a manufacturing plant in Ireland, hence Intel is a European manufacturer. Those rebates were probably also directed at some European builders. Apple has no such thing, as far as I know, they only have data centers and other businesses in Ireland, no Apple...

    European Commission Fines Qualcomm €997M for Abuse of Dominant Market Position

    Well the thing is that Qualcomm and Apple are American companies that fabricate their products in China. What does the EU have to do with any deal between these companies as long as they only sell their products here and not produce them? What does the EU have to do with Apple an American...

    European Commission Fines Qualcomm €997M for Abuse of Dominant Market Position

    I'm an European but I'm really starting to doubt these EU decisions. A billion from Microsoft, one from Intel, one from Apple, now from Qualcomm. A billion here, a billion there, more and more this starts to look like extortion fees for companies being able to sell in the EU...

    Intel's Patch for Meltdown, Spectre "Complete and Utter Garbage:" Linus Torvalds

    This would be unacceptable for me and a lot of people. Think about it this way: if you lose 5-10% performance on your CPU its like you changed out your CPU for an older generation chip. Even so, let's say it might work for you and me but how about servers with hundreds of CPU's in them? The...

    Intel Announces Root Cause of Meltdown, Spectre Patch Reboot Issue Identified

    When you say "I'm out" and then you come back again that only means one thing: the other person is making you angry. It also means that you are not a man of your word but that's another story. Your every action in this thread proves my words are true and everyone can see it. This article itself...

    Intel Announces Root Cause of Meltdown, Spectre Patch Reboot Issue Identified

    Of course yet again it's someone else's fault. Although nothing in my discourse was in any way or form uncivilized and could have been perceived as angry, once again you project something from inside yourself on someone else. Maybe what I've said has made you angry so in your head I'm the angry...

    Intel Announces Root Cause of Meltdown, Spectre Patch Reboot Issue Identified

    Here you are again projecting your own flaws unto others. This time on the whole humanity. You have made a mistake and were called out for it. What have you learned from this? Maybe try to better yourself? No! Everyone makes mistakes and there's nothing wrong with that. That's what you are...

    Intel Announces Root Cause of Meltdown, Spectre Patch Reboot Issue Identified

    Let me teach you something today. This is the definition of foolish: "lacking good sense or judgement; unwise." Now please tell me which one of us was the one acting foolish. Me, using my judgement to determine that it would be wiser to wait until this is sorted out? Or you, downloading and...

    Intel Announces Root Cause of Meltdown, Spectre Patch Reboot Issue Identified

    My message was not intended for you. I am not boasting about anything. This was my original post on this forum: As you can see I have just said what I am going to do and written the specific windows update number so that maybe other people who want to do the same thing know which one it is. To...

    Intel Announces Root Cause of Meltdown, Spectre Patch Reboot Issue Identified

    Any Windows update can be uninstalled without any negative repercussions as far as I know. If we are talking about a BIOS update, simply flashing the previous one should do the job. As for CPU firmware, I dunno how that works...

    Intel Announces Root Cause of Meltdown, Spectre Patch Reboot Issue Identified

    "OEMs, cloud service providers, system manufacturers, software vendors and end users stop deployment of current versions, as they may introduce higher than expected reboots and other unpredictable system behavior." It seems that my point of view from the start of all this, not downloading beta...

    100,000 PUBG Cheaters to Be Banned Soon, Developer Promises

    No, In my own experience, the biggest cheaters of them all are the Russians. I mean, it didn't even surprise me when I saw that their Olympic team got banned for cheating in real life. That's just who they are...

    BSODs from Meltdown and Spectre Firmware Updates Are Spreading Like the Plague

    Yeah, I am the problem, not that this patch makes your computers BSOD and restart. It's me, that pays hundreds of dollars for 10% more CPU performance and is unwilling to accept something that can reduce CPU performance by as much as 30% and if something like you described were to happen would...

    BSODs from Meltdown and Spectre Firmware Updates Are Spreading Like the Plague

    When, how, why and if that happens, I will deal with it then. I am not the NSA, I have no true sensitive information in my system. I do have a desire for my system to work at its full potential, like it's doing right now. I have yet to see one report of a user on this planet with over 7 billion...

    BSODs from Meltdown and Spectre Firmware Updates Are Spreading Like the Plague

    Some people here laughed at me when I've said I will not download this update. They called me foolish, all kinds of names. Well I can say that after not installing this cancer, my CPU is doing fine and my system is as safe as ever. I have just one question for you: How do you like your gimped...

    Editorial Confessions of a Crypto Miner: The Setup

    I dunno, I wouldn't leave it like that. The PCIE slot might get too loose over time and not make proper contact anymore. Try to put the fan so it covers the video cards perfectly, the CPU doesn't really need that much cooling anyway...

    Editorial Confessions of a Crypto Miner: The Setup

    One of the video cards sits really crooked in that picture. I don't know if it's such a good idea to put a big object on them. The outer video card seems bent in it's socket under the weight of that fan/bucket, whatever it is...

    Leaked AI-powered Game Revenue Model Paper Foretells a Dystopian Nightmare

    Parts of this are already implemented in "f2p" games. I will give you just one example: If you don't play dota 2 for a long time when you come back to it, after the first match you will "win" an item. If you play normally getting an item is very rare and far between but it happens each time...
