    Blast from the Past: Creative Announces Updated Sound Blaster Z SE Discrete Sound Card

    The bit stream is reconstructed into a wave (in this case by the sabre chip) and then amplified to line/headphone amplitude levels, there is not much to understand in that sense. Using an internal card will give you a rubbish noise floor because of all the interference inside the case and the...

    Blast from the Past: Creative Announces Updated Sound Blaster Z SE Discrete Sound Card

    Then put it under your desk or use the integrated chipset. This kind of sound card will give you no advantage over what's included in a decent motherboard.

    RISC-V Processor Achieves 5 GHz Frequency at Just 1 Watt of Power

    RISC is a design philosophy (reduced isntruction set computer) as opposed to CISC(complex instruction set computer). RISC(ARM and similar) uses few simple instructions built in on the hardware and then executes the rest as a combination of those. (Pro: power efficiency, smaller size, fast simple...

    Intel Outs the NUC M15 Laptop Kit

    Activision Announces Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time

    I wasn't very impressed with the remastered trilogy, the graphics and sounds were good but they screwed up the controls, making them way less responsive than the originals. The game doesn't feel as fluid as the ps1 games. Let's see what they do with this, but being activision I trust them to...

    Doom Eternal Review-Bombed on Steam After Denuvo Anti-Cheat Inclusion in Update 1

    2016 had a loadout based multiplayer, it's not the same. But then again, most people (including me) play these games for the single player.

    Doom Eternal Review-Bombed on Steam After Denuvo Anti-Cheat Inclusion in Update 1

    There were only a few people playing it, even less now. The fact that it's demons vs slayer probably put off a lot of people who would have liked a pure quake-like death match. That said apparently some people liked it but I don't see the reason for anticheat when there wasn't even a problem on...

    Doom Eternal Review-Bombed on Steam After Denuvo Anti-Cheat Inclusion in Update 1

    I bought the game on release and had a great time with it, it also worked flawlessly until this patch which introduced the unwanted anti-cheat system as well as several bugs and performance issues (I've had minor ones but there are people who had their saves wiped and other sorts of crap). It...
