    The Inland PROFESSIONAL 1TB drive is the older one. It uses the E8 controller and is PCI-E x2. The Inland PREMIUM 1TB drive is the newer one with the E12 controller and is PCI-E x4. Microcenter has some confusion on their website with the labeling. The website shows it as Inland Professional but...

    Toyota and Suzuki Announce Electric Car Partnership

    Hydrogen did not fail. The cars are essentially battery electric hybrid cars with a hydrogen fuel cell replacing a hydrocarbon combustion engine. The infrastructure for hydrogen is not here in America yet but hydrogen is going big in Japan. When it comes down to it, all these alternative...

    Epic Games Presents the "Chaos" Physics and Destruction System Demo

    Dude, nice demo but it is making me salivate for RoboRecall2! I use the original to demo VR to people and it gets the WOW response every time. What a slick title.; too bad it was so short.

    Linux Gaming Across 9 Distros [Review in Progress]

    Off topic, but what's with the use of the word "performant" today? Saw this used on an Oculus Rift S article today on another site. Weird.

    Facebook Unveils the Oculus Rift S

    ^^^This is the major reason. Those of us with the original Rift have a fair amount of $ invested in software titles in the Oculus store. Assuming this device can use the same account, I will most likely be getting this as well.

    HP Announces HP Reverb Virtual Reality Headset: Professional Edition

    Well, the Oculus Rift S looks promising. Was hoping for some [H] coverage and treatment on this new release, but with Kyle heading to Intel and killing off the site, I don't know where I'm going to get the real deets on what graphics card will be necessary to run it. Hope your next chapter is...

    I too would have been skeptical of this during the early Renaissance! 496 years ago.

    Anthem Is a Buggy Mess

    EA was pretty good when they released Pinball Construction Set but have gone downhill from there. (n)

    AAA Study Claims Cold Weather Significantly Shortens EV Range

    The battery likes an environment similar to what humans like. If the temp moves too far away from 75F, then the car needs to use energy to run the heating or cooling for the battery itself in order to maintain a moderate temp. Better to have lost some energy than have the battery explode from...

    New Data Dump Contains Billions of Email and Password Pairs

    Don't forget FIDO2. Yubikey5 is a great product to assist with this. PASSWORDS NEED TO DIE! Password managers are not infallible. Articles like this scare me...

    Here Is the ASRock Phantom Gaming X AMD Radeon VII 16G Graphics Card

    I may not be on top of all the details, but no USB-C port for upcoming VR headsets like nVidia has? Thought that was a new standard.

    SuperData Breaks Down the Global Gaming Market

    Looking at those numbers, F2P top 10 all beat the top paid title in revenue. Regardless of what gamers state, the expenditures show to developers where to direct future development. Not looking great for what most here would want. People scoff at spending $60 to $100 on a title up front, but...

    Does this mean Oculus Rift = Oculus Quest when the TPlink device is connected to either and to the user's PC?

    Huawei Launches Kunpeng 920 ARM Server CPU

    ARM RISC architecture is becoming more and more powerful while using less power than x86. Apps compiled for ARM have been working the same or in some cases better than the same apps compiled in x86. ARM really looks to be the future with x86 heading out.

    Nvidia Expands G-Sync Support to Approved Adaptive Sync Monitors

    My understanding is that VRR can be turned on for any monitor. Now, some won't work at all, some will work somewhat (now branded g-sync monitor), others will be certified to work across the VRR spectrum (to be branded g-sync certified) and finally the monitors with the g-sync hardware built in...
