    300 Nvidia GPUs Seized After High Speed Boat Chase

    "Our movie-like story kicked off with Chinese authorities detaining a fishing boat anchored near Hong Kong International Airport. Men on the fishing boat were swapping cargo over to a speedboat. When authorities approached, the smugglers hopped into the speedboat and fled. While the customs...

    Intel Xe-HPG DG2 GPU's Q4 2021

    Cool but how much and will it be sold out within seconds of launch?

    LG Exiting The Mobile Phone Market

    That's bad because LG and Motorola are two of the cheapest phone companies in the market. Also LG is friendlier when it comes to letting people install custom roms.

    Inside Amazon's Smart Warehouse

    That's because most people had a farm and didn't have to pay property taxes. We can't agree on Unions. We can't agree on minimum wage. Americans can't even have a free health care system. Yet you're worried about the government having control over you? The elite already have control over...

    Best Buy Beta

    Inside Amazon's Smart Warehouse

    This is a great example of why I feel that automation and UBI are the way of the future. I'd rather Amazon fully automate their warehouse's, while paying people a UBI.

    Best Buy Beta

    Good, because they deserve it. Went there the other day to buy a HDMI cable for $80. I complained about the price but the guy assured me that the ones I find online for $8 are poor quality. They deserve to fade away from existence.

    Apple knew it was selling defective MacBook displays, judge concludes

    When did this happen? What products are effected by this? Google'ing shows me issues as far back as 2006 but there are people who have leaking capacitors today.

    "Police bust 'world's biggest' video-game-cheat operation"

    I totally agree but I also know the kind of people that cheat and they aren't interested in improving themselves. Some people need a win to feed their ego, whether or not they earned it. Look at pay to win micro-transactions where some games do give you an edge that other players don't have...

    Customizable controller let's you configure controls

    I have an armchair and just have the keyboard on my lap while using the mouse on the arm part of the chair. The Logitech Dark Field mice works pretty good since it'll work on any surface I use it on. I've tried other lasers and they just don't work as well. The MX Anywhere mouse is what I...

    Apple knew it was selling defective MacBook displays, judge concludes

    I'm not sure but it sounds like the cable isn't able to be replaced due to how Apple built the laptop. This is why it's such a difficult issue since the cost of repair sounds expensive. I'm not sure if Apple soldered the cable to the motherboard of it's glued to the chassis in some way.

    Apple knew it was selling defective MacBook displays, judge concludes

    Judge Edward Davila has decided to let the “flexgate” lawsuit go forward, ruling that Apple should have known that they would fail and yet kept selling them anyhow. “The court finds that the allegations of pre-release testing in combination with the allegations of substantial customer...

    New Arm v9 announced

    That is not a NUC. That is just a small PC. One based on mini ITX. This is a NUC. You don't understand, but the HTC 10 is an unlocked phone. The bootloader is locked on nearly all Android devices. It's not hard to unlock a HTC as HTC has a website dedicated for this. The problem is...

    They're also vastly inferior. Let me know when they can play Cyberpunk 2077. This is why we need something like IEEE to set in and make a standard. It isn't ARM's fault but it is associated with ARM. The fact that LineageOS as well as many other roms exist on multiple devices shows that it...

    New Arm v9 announced

    I think you give something like a NUC too much credit in its ability to play modern AAA games. ARM can do great things but ARM needs standards for security reasons. Android is less secure because all Android devices don't update. Android devices don't update because each device is dependent...

    New Arm v9 announced

    Keep in mind that this isn't an ARM issue but an issue that's associated with ARM. PS4 and PS5 for example are both x86 but do not use a UEFI boot loader. Manufacturers are taking advantage of a new market by making it limited in what you can do, and ARM is just coming along for the ride. I'm...

    I see UEFI as a requirement. Without any booting standards on ARM then Linux could fall apart. Anyone remember this being a huge problem for Linux when Microsoft was pushing for UEFI? Not going to be easy to get people to use Linux when they have to pull teeth. Look at LineageOS for Android...

    We're not just talking about the Raspberry Pi. Most ARM SoC's are in phones and tablets, with the Raspberry Pi making up a very small fraction of the market. The only other device that could have some potential for standardization is Google's ChromeOS, but even that is a hit or a miss. Fact...

    New Arm v9 announced

    Whatever the cause is, the main thing to understand here is that PC gaming is booming. Specifically X86 Windows gaming. The only move towards ARM right now is Chrome, and that's because Chromebooks are cheap. If you count cell phones and tablets then sure, but that's like saying AAA gaming is...

    Old DOS games don't count because they're old... and DOS. You run Linux if you want to get away from Windows. If you're using ARM then you want to get away from software. If you're using ARM Mac then you just want to get away from electronics. For 32-bit, sure. For anything modern and I'm...

    "Police bust 'world's biggest' video-game-cheat operation"

    Then you patch the game. You don't waste tax payers money on police when you could use your money to hire programmers to patch your game. I'm just glad it was China's money. If the cheaters can out perform your programmers then hire better programmers. I don't even like bans. You paid for...

    New Arm v9 announced

    Not really. One major step would be to make an open platform for ARM just like x86's modern day IBM compatible PCs. You still need the software, which ARM does have a lot of software but nothing on the scale of x86 Windows. Did you know there's an ARM Windows? Nobody knows about it because...

    "Police bust 'world's biggest' video-game-cheat operation"

    Not defending cheaters but getting the police involved is going too far. It also doesn't make sense. If someone is cheating then that usually means they're exploiting something in the game. Exploits can be patched, and should be patched. They also said they were providing a service, which...

    There was a rumor that ARM's mali was going to enter the PC market, which means it would have competed with Nvidia. The reason ARM went for sale was because they invested too much into Internet of Things (IoT). Turns out people didn't need toasters and refrigerators that were connected to the...

    And they said socialism doesn't work. But yea this isn't a good thing. Yes cheats suck but this was done to stop others from making their lottery money. Also this sounds like these people weren't cheating but playing for people to help them out. Basically you were paying to have them boost...

    Customizable controller let's you configure controls

    Once you go keyboard and mouse there's no going back. I really appreciate it when emulators like RPCS3 actually include keyboard+mouse support, as I enjoy that better than a gamepad.

    Plenty of shit companies to go around but I'm pretty sure Nvidia is nearly king of the kill on this one. Especially when you need ARM to be as open as possible.

    UK system builder launches "No GPU" range of gaming PCs

    It certainly will do something negative in the market as Nvidia isn't exactly going to let ARM promote Mali graphics. Mali won't go anywhere with Nvidia controlling ARM. Also, Nvidia isn't exactly friends when it comes to relations with others. Did we forget about Nvidia's Geforce Partner...

    GameStop to Sell PC Hardware

    What a lot of people here don't realize is that AMD and Nvidia haven't been making the best GPU's they could make. The RTX 3090 has a memory bus of 384-bit while AMD's RX 6800 XT is using 256-bit. AMD has been really efficient because they aren't even using GDDR6X. Both AMD and Nvidia can go...

    GameStop to Sell PC Hardware

    Yea but that's what you'd expect from hardware as far back as 2013. Also we're taking a console APU and sticking it into a PC. Linux on the PS4 playing PC games works pretty good all things considered.

    GameStop to Sell PC Hardware

    China has different feelings about this. Though this is based on the Xbox One hardware, which is the same as the PS4 but with DDR3 memory. I'd take an Xbox Series X on a motherboard, so long as that memory setup that Microsoft has isn't going to break anything.

    GameStop to Sell PC Hardware

    I'm hoping that DDR5+quad channel memory is enough to push APU's into PS5 performance territory. Assuming Intel does get competitive with their onboard graphics, we could see a back and forth between AMD and Intel, pushing for faster performing APU's. I'm betting on that Nvidia is going to...

    You know Americans got the virus from Europe mostly. That won't happen. We're at the point where Pandora's box is open and can never be shut. Lots of people who haven't paid rent or mortgages will probably be homeless once the restrictions are removed. At some point in 2021 a lot of...
