    AMD Ryzen 4000 Renoir Desktop Benchmarks Show Up To 90 Percent Uplift Over Last-Gen Flagship

    There is a pretty big difference in the performance characteristics of DDR and GDDR memory types, I am not so sure that the increase in ram speeds from DDR4 to DDR5 is going to scale as expected. It will help but I don't expect it to be overly stellar.

    AMD Ryzen 4000 Renoir Desktop Benchmarks Show Up To 90 Percent Uplift Over Last-Gen Flagship

    Here's hoping, I was recently excited by that AMD based SBC that has been circulating around but I finally managed to track down pricing and it was more than double what I was expecting so it was a big let down. The Cabinet I built doesn't have a lot of room inside it for anything too large so I...

    My Pi 4 isn't cutting it for the MAME titles I want to be running atm, Gauntlet Legends and Dark Legacy. I may use this as an upgrade for that box.

    Gamemakers Inject AI to Develop More Lifelike Characters

    Fun idea Train an AI to play Sim City, Civilization, and The Sims. Branch that AI into 6 and then train them against each other, then use those AI’s as gods to rule over an MMO everybody plays in. Each of the AI gods is trying to achieve something slightly different and the players are basically...

    Gamemakers Inject AI to Develop More Lifelike Characters

    I would be more interested in AI in enemies. They remember how you were killing them on each play through. Or AI in MMO bosses, no 2 raids alike.

    Texas Instruments makes it harder to run programs on its calculators

    Yeah back in the early 80's Cassio and HP were the de facto calculators used by most schools because they were cheap and could handle like 1-2 variable functions and in HP's case could do RPN, but than in the late 80's TI started lobbying the various textbook printers and got some of their...

    Texas Instruments makes it harder to run programs on its calculators

    He's not wrong though back in the late 80's early 90's TI played some dirty pool and got their calculators worked into the curriculum, and once in it is pretty hard to actually pull that stuff out especially since they continue to lobby to keep their hardware in there.

    Creative introduces the Sound BlasterX AE-5 Plus Pure Edition in a white finish with added RGB effects

    Good RGB LED's don't generate much noise at all its actually one of their nicer qualities so there is no real downside to placing them on a sound card for this sort of thing. The amount of noise they generate is completely insignificant compared to that of your CPU cooler or water pump or any...

    Chinese vendor has repacked a Xeon CPU

    Fortunately for Intel and the like it is extremely expensive to build a fab plant, and there is a lot of design engineering that goes into it that is hard to replicate/steal without the necessary engineering prous. They are probably selling them designs that incorporate newer tech into older fab...

    Creative introduces the Sound BlasterX AE-5 Plus Pure Edition in a white finish with added RGB effects

    I am interested in this a little, but I would need to find a good set of headphones to make use of this card that I actually like the feel of. I'll keep it in mind for my next system build.
