    AMD Unveils its Most Powerful Semi-custom SoC for a Chinese OEM

    GDDR have higher throughput/faster but also have higher latency than DDR and for daily PC that's used for something like web browsing and office use isn't latency more important than higher bandwidth since lower latency=more responsiveness

    NVIDIA Releases GeForce 398.82 "Game Ready" Drivers

    The reason I updated the driver is because in this driver sometimes when browsing the driver is stopped working for some reason although the occurrences has been reduced significantly on recent Firefox release. Looks like I'll just keep using this driver on my Windows 7 PC forever :shadedshu:

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1180 Bare PCB Pictured

    With DRAM shortage and brand new GDDR6 combined, it's gonna be one expensive card. I have no doubt it will be priced higher than 1080 until AMD release something to counter it

    NVIDIA Releases GeForce 398.82 "Game Ready" Drivers

    This driver always fail to load on Windows 7 after restarting for the second time (the first restart being mandatory restart when installing), using DDU and reinstall won't solve the problem, in the end DDU it again then reinstall old driver (version 390.77) and voila running OK just like before

    MSI Drops First Hint of AMD Increasing AM4 CPU Core Counts

    Not surprising if AMD actually bring 12 core to AM4, their server division need the core increase to offer more options and by trickling it down they also increasing the consumer product range It's a win-win situation

    TechPowerUp Processor Survey Results: The Ryzen Effect is Real

    I was considering Ryzen but since I got my Skylake for relatively cheap so I decided to stay with it for as long as it can run 1080p60, maybe 4K60 when $250 GPU can run it smoothly

    Xbox Architect Rob Wyatt Joins the Atari VCS Team

    I don't mind another console on the market but they're gonna need some serious money to lure developer into building for their platform while at the same time making their own exclusive, otherwise they're gonna have a bad time just ask Sega for that

    What a great time for power user right now, from Intel you got 28C/56T monster with 6-channel memory and from AMD you got 32C/64T beast The 5GHz Cinebench from Intel is kinda spoiling the fun though
