    Blizzard's Battle.net Launcher Receives a Makeover

    Can't have your friends list as a separate smaller window must take up the entire screen to look at it. Amazing how tone-deaf this is.

    Sony Shows Off PlayStation 5 Internals in the Latest Teardown Video

    Complaining about the fan is just wrong Radial fans are better then axial for a heatsink application. In general a radial fan will generate a more concentrated flow and greater pressure but at less volume. Generally radial fans are quieter in the hvac world because the air that gets pushed is...

    Intel 14 nm Node Compared to TSMC's 7 nm Node Using Scanning Electron Microscope

    Marketing to the public, people who actually have to order from a foundry get more useful information. Why do people think samsung had a 7nm process since 2018 because they advertise it to the public even when it's was basically not usable Different logic/i.o/cache/memory all comes in different...

    Intel 11th Gen Core "Tiger Lake" & Xe Graphics Launch Event: Live Blog

    Intel isn't using TDP anymore and AMD 15w is TDP not it's power setting. 4800U is a 12-25w TDP configurable, 15w is the default but the OEM can set it up however they want. The lenovo they use was set up at the 25w TDP. I approve of intel moving away from TDP that number made no sense to anyone...

    Microsoft Flight Simulator Expected to Stimulate Billions in PC Hardware Sales

    Not really strange the game only uses like 4-8 threads and it's mostly just the 1-2 threads doing all the work you can tell how old the base of the game really is. The game was likely just built right on top of the old FSX engine. Intel has the higher clock and still has a slight edge on IPC so...

    Picture Proof of NVIDIA 12-pin Power Connector: Seasonic Ships Modular Adapters

    I wonder how much that 850w recommended is because the 12pin is supposed to be able to carry up to 600w So it's probably not smart to run such a connector on a 600w power supply.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Founders Edition Potentially Pictured: 3-slot Behemoth!

    Halo branding works. Even if it loses them money halo products raise the perceived worth of products downline due to it raising the perceived worth of the brand itself. It's unclear if this what appears to be a reaching product is due to trying to justify RTX/4K and people actually buying new...

    Logitech Says It's Doing Everything it Can to Thwart Webcam Shortages

    120fps based on what? What webcam, streaming or videoweb site even allows 120fps. That's probably because Logitech moved to using the cheaper Chinese made Omron switches many years back from the Japanese ones. Ofc for some reason the chinese ones are rated for 50mil clicks while the japanese...

    Arm Co-Founder Doesn't Think NVIDIA Owning the Company Would be in Its Best Interests

    PowerPC, MIPS, ARM all have pretty wide applications throughout their lifetime. It's just a matter if you can make it work, hardware and software. I would say the biggest thing having x86 as the popular pc processor is software, legacy crap is the reason why windows is popular, it's also what...

    Herman Miller And Logitech G Enhance The Embody Chair To Meet Needs Of Pro Gamers And Streamers

    Ionno if i was a streamer sponsored by logitech i'd be excited if i could get to sit in a Herman Miller chair vs the weird shoulder bolsters on other "gaming" chairs. But yeah weird partnership, Herman miller makes really great long lasting chairs but they come at a really premium price.

    NVIDIA GeForce Now Founders Will Not Be Charged Until June

    Oh geforce now, sell server time and have people run w.e software they own on it. Publishers don't like it because they don't think it lets them make more money, just like they didn't like being able to transfer game keys. I do wonder why nvidia just doesn't try pushing it by just making you...

    NUDEcnc Releases Lapping Tools for Intel DIE & IHS

    People been lapping dies for a long time. The die isn't bare silicon there is a diffusion barrier which has a worse thermal conductivity and puts you slightly further away from the heat producing part. Direct die mounting though is always risky, chip a corner off your old thunderbird cpu while...

    NVIDIA Unveils RTX Voice, AI-based Audio Noise-Cancellation Software

    People just need to buy decent mics and ditch things like wireless headsets which just don't have the bandwidth to do both and stay low latency. This kind of software is probably good for filtering out more static background noise which is a good piece of tech to develop. It's more of...

    NVIDIA Announces New G-SYNC Esports Displays with 360 Hz Refresh-rate

    People really hate progress? If someone wants higher refresh rate why hate, personally i don't like this monitor not for it's 360hz but because it's 1080p and a TN panel. I have my tradeoffs you have yours, i want higher resolution and better color accuracy across wide viewing angles, refresh...

    Intel's Process Roadmap Gets Updated with Plans to go Back to Two Year Cadence

    "new features" does look like someone made a template and couldn't get answers from R&D or who ever they're asking to fill in the blanks. Seems like that's the spot for things like "gate-last" "double-patterning" "finfet" things of that nature. The whole slide reeks of someone was told to make...

    Continuing 14 nm Supply Shortages Lead Intel to Reintroduce Haswell-based, 22 nm Pentium G3420

    This isn't intel hurting much. intel still has operating 22nm fabs, intel still has operating 14nm fabs hell i think they might have a 32nm fab still. Intel's shortage at 14nm is inspite of an increase in capacity year over year it's not like intel just magically forgot how to make their 14nm...

    TSMC on Track to Deliver 3 nm in 2022

    With how intel names things intel's 5nm node would probably mean that it's similar to tsmc's 3nm process. If anything intel can just change how they name things to fit more closely with glo flo/tsmc and samsung and people will claim they've made huge progress.

    Intel Says Its Upcoming Gen12 GPUs Will Feature Biggest Architecture Change In A Decade

    It's strange to see people actively argue against ray tracing in general. I wonder how much of that is the hardware vs how much of it is bad implementation. Like in the days of crysis 2 where you get jersey barriers with thousands of polygons in it's mesh and tessellated water that's placed...
