    Intel to build 2 new fabs

    14nm is still plenty for most uses. Good for Intel to give its design and fab units more independence.

    Rocket Lake Benchmarked by Anandtech - Pleae leave your gaming performance at the door!

    Kind of expected. It all comes down to price and availability. It is far from great but it puts up enough of a fight to stay relevant. p.s. Just saw leaked pricing. If that is accurate I have no idea why anyone will buy this over 10th gen that's often on sale nowadays.

    How can I connect three laptops to a fourth one?

    If his laptops are going to be connected to the internet he will likely be on a lan regardless. If his laptops are not going to be connected to the internet then he can create an adhoc network with just the built in wifi.

    What exactly is the deal with GPUs

    Now is literally the perfect time for Intel to enter the market. However given Intel's recent track record, it wouldn't be surprising that they get their GPUs ready after crypto crashes.

    How can I connect three laptops to a fourth one?

    If you just want to control the 3 laptops from the 4th and use all the displays then Synergy is your best bet. If you want to view all 4 on the 4th then Teamviewer is your best bet.

    Need help in repairing 4 dead GPUs

    Sell them on Ebay. You will be surprised at how much they go for. It is not difficult to repair but few places in the U.S. do. Often times they are shipped off to China for repair. Im not an expert but I sometimes watch repair videos for fun on Youtube. The ones that don't turn on are usually...

    Thanks Elon you screwed us

    Super thankful that I managed to get a 5600XT on sale late last year. Was supposed to be temporary but looks like it is going to be permanent as I've lost hope on getting a better card for a reasonable price. On the other hand I've been mining on all my PCs. Comes out to $10 a day, pays for a...

    China's factory recovery slows in January as COVID-19 returns

    They literally lock down part of a city for a couple dozen cases. So it may not be a 'huge' number of cases but the economic impact is there.

    China's factory recovery slows in January as COVID-19 returns

    I work in Hong Kong at the moment on an expat assignment. The irony is that there is a huge amount of public noise about moving production away from China. But in reality the amount of foreign investment going in is skyrocketing. Companies are moving low value adds from China while investing in...

    GameStop Stock keeps going up no end in sight

    I kinda feel bad for Robinhood. Caught between a rock and a hard place. Their low fee but advanced features model is precisely their undoing. It works well in a normal market and they can keep their margin of error low. However when volatility goes through the roof their clearing house deposit...

    GameStop Stock keeps going up no end in sight

    I work for a bank so I am not allowed to day trade, must hold for 30 days. However if I could I would totally buy some right now. It will likely be a deja vu of that VW squeeze. The other stocks that reddit is hyping doesn't make as much sense, the short interest is just not there. Either buy a...

    Spare 3080...sell it or put it to mining?

    My suggestion is to mine with it but liquidate the coins as soon as you get them and sell the card when coin price drops. It seems very unlikely that 3080 prices will drop enough to outweigh the mining profits in the next 6-12 months.

    Atari VCS Console Finally Set To Release

    Specs is a bit underpar for the $. If they managed to stick in a quad core APU at this price point it would have been very compelling.
