    AMD Ryzen 7 1800X 3.6 GHz

    Not sure where you are getting you information. However, I just looked at AMD stocks and from what I can see, they are stable. The jump is Hugh! However, I recommend that if you are going to overclock, even eventually, buy the 1700 non X since it comes with a good cooler out of the box. I have...

    Microsoft Locks System Updates for Windows 7, 8.1 on Ryzen, Kaby Lake Systems

    Oh, I also noticed that there is no news story about how Windows 7 updates are now working extremely fast. In fact, they are faster than I have ever seen them before but, I guess that does not paint MS in a negative light now, does it?

    Microsoft Locks System Updates for Windows 7, 8.1 on Ryzen, Kaby Lake Systems

    Yeah right dude. :D I see it is easier to attack, eh? So, do not buy a Ryzen or Kabylake based CPU then if you want to run Windows 7 or 8.1, perceived problem solved. Heck, I have not read the article yet and I bet you it is really much to do about nothing and all about FUD.

    Microsoft Ending Vista Support April 11th, Says Few Older Computers Ready for 10

    I absolutely loved 64 Bit SP1 Vista. :) In fact, hated the fact that the removed the immediately loading of programs into ram on boot up in Windows 7 without anyway to make it behave like Windows Vista. People would complain about hard drive thrashing because they did not understand why it was...

    Microsoft Adds Ability to Block Win32 Apps from Install on Windows 10

    To believe this, you must abandon all common sense and logic. No, you were not ever laughed out of the forums, almost, you just simply do not have a leg to stand on with this point. I need not explain why because I am sure all those games that you have will explain for me.

    AMD's Upcoming Ryzen Line-up Could Feature 6-Core Chips After All

    And they are not going to be pricing them at some stupid expensive stratospheric prices like Intel does, either. They need market share and sales and pricing this stuff to high will not get them that.

    AMD Readies Ryzen Platform Drivers for Windows 7

    I guess positive AMD news does not bring the egg on face folks out. :D Oh well, for those who still want to use Windows 7, this is very good news.

    Loophole Lets You Freely Upgrade to Windows 10 After Offer Expiry

    You do not need any loophole at all. Just download the Media Creation tool, create a usb install drive, run setup on top of Windows 7 or 8.1, done. The free Windows 10 upgrade is fully available, it is just not being pushed anymore.

    AMD Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Drivers Information Leaked

    Properly working? Fast? You sure are not speaking of the Nvidia control panel which is definitely NOT fast. LOL

    LOL! Yeah, it does not even scale well with High DPI monitors either.

    SSD Pricing to Surge on the Back of NAND Shortages - Stock Your SSD Needs

    I recently purchased 2 x 960GB Sandisk Ultra II's at $182.99 each before taxes. I then transferred my Adata 480GB into my work machine as a secondary driver. (The primary one there is a Sandisk 480GB.) Wondering if this means that the DDR4 pricing will go up as well?

    Microsoft Entering Agreements with Laptop Makers to Block Linux

    Yeah! After all, why the hell should people be able to put food on the table and be paid for the work! The nerve of some people! /s ;) :D

    Global PCle SSD Market to Grow 33.24% by 2020

    Yet, they still will not make any real world, day to day difference over Sata SSD's. (Benchmarks mean nothing.)

    Samsung Announces the 960 Pro and 960 EVO Series M.2 NVMe SSDs

    Perhaps in 10 to 15 years, I agree. :) However, at least for now, the underlying infrastructure of a PC is just far to slow for that. You will notice that for day to day stuff, a PCIe SSD will make little to know discernible difference for now.

    Well, this is the board I have so maybe this is why I have had no issues: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130759

    AMD "Zen" and Intel "Kaby Lake" will Only Support Windows 10 and *nix

    Good reason to put you on ignore, thanks.

    AMD "Zen" and Intel "Kaby Lake" will Only Support Windows 10 and *nix

    You clearly seemed to miss one key point in you rant: If a company has custom built (Not build) images, they are going to purchase the exact same hardware for those images. Otherwise, those custom built images will not work anymore.

    Well, the setup is still pretty good for what you can get out of it. I run my 24/7 as a Windows 10 Pro NAS. (I just used it as a file history backup and backup of my ripped dvd's.)

    ADATA Launches the Ultimate SU800 3D NAND SSD

    Why? Except for benchmarks, the difference between PCIe and Sata for these drives are insignificant. However, Sata 4 would be good but, hard drives do not fully use Sata 3 and SSD's are moving towards the M.2 form factor anyways. (Yes, I know the M.2 supports both Sata and PCIe but, Sata 4...

    MSI Intros GeForce GTX 1060 3GB OCV1 Graphics Card

    I always thought that NVidia users were a murderous bunch. ;) I do think it will be competitive for a short time but, it will be far from a killer of the RX 470 and RX 480. The ram limitation on that card will be reached within a year if not sooner.

    Oh, ok. :D I had not heard of Navi before so it did not click. No problem, we all make mistakes from time to time. :)
