    3rd gen Threadripper, big fail and missed opportunity for AMD.

    Please buy Intel! AMD needs to die financially again so that Intel can again have huge prices. That was so great. 1. TR is worth every penny for the performance. For some or other weird reason you have the idea that all cores are equal. Really? 2. AMD actually still desperately needs money...

    The End of Blu-ray

    The biggest joke is that DVd will last longer than Blue ray. I have never owned a Blue ray player, neither a Blue ray writer. This technology was too late. I think HD-DVD might have had better luck, since DVD writers are still a thing and even DVD players.

    Ryzen 3000 Processors Listed on Russian Retail Site

    Great news and very believable. AdoredTV has been very accurate lately and it seems AMD has "chosen" him as their primary leaker. Companies actually do this on purpose, since it is free marketing.

    Navi, Vega II, Ryzen 3000 and More AMD CES Rumors

    Please read what I have posted again. My posty is not as much as what AMD has offered in the past, but what they could offer now. The video is about what is coming. I posted in reaction to you. You said that basically after AMD releases a competitive part, you will will wait for nVidia (and...

    Navi, Vega II, Ryzen 3000 and More AMD CES Rumors

    This is what Intel/nVidia fanboys just not get. You have been supporting these guys and they have milked you for what you've got and became very slack in not progressing much and holding back technology. Now AMD comes at last, almost with their final breath and produce some competition and...

    AdoredTV Discusses the Recent AMD Ryzen and Radeon 3000 Series Leaks

    I'm just thinking in the poor fools who invested so much money in a 9900K, with zero upgrade path. What a sad lot that must be...

    EVGA 2080 Ti XC Catches Fire in Spectacular Fashion

    This is final proof. All electronics work with smoke. There is special smoke inside all electronics that makes it work. Once this smoke is released, it will stop working. You can however prevent this from happening by taping all electronic components. Duck tape will work well. This will...

    Intel Core i9-9900K Re-Reviewed, 95-Watt TDP Results

    Nope. The issue is not about what the CPU can do for us, but the impression Intel is officially giving. If they say that this is what it can do as an overclocked cpu, fine. This is not what they did They gave performance numbers as if this is what it is at stock. So yes, I understand your point...

    Intel Core i9-9900K Re-Reviewed, 95-Watt TDP Results

    So many here are just clueless and probably have not even watched the video. They miss the point. Most people do not build their own systems. They buy OEM systems like Dell or HP. These companies know they have to stick to the specs. The issue is that if you ignore the TDP, you lose your...

    Intel Core i9-9900K Processor Shortage Hits NewEgg and Amazon

    This is not a shortage, but a failure to supply. The few they supplied, cannot realy be called a supply. It was just to stop people from waiting for Zen 2, an old trick with paper launches.

    Intel Kills off the 10nm Process

    Charlie responded to Intel's denial and he said that he stands by his report, basically calling Intel out as lying about it.

    Intel Kills off the 10nm Process

    I wonder though if Intel is telling the truth. There are good reasons that they do not want this news to come out. It will hurt their stock price and the investors will be very angry There is no reason why Intel may not announce next year that things did not go as planned and they had to stop...

    Drone Shot Simulates Airplane Collision

    Nope, can't be true, we all saw how a plane went right through a whole building, coming out of the other side. So a little plastic drone cannot even make a dent in a plane's wing. But I do suppose these drones might be a lot stronger than the steel bars of a building, as well as the concrete...
