    US PC shipments soar 73% in the first quarter as Apple falls from top spot

    HP is the only good laptop with a newer ryzen 5000U series and the convertible / x360 design.. Last I checked anyways which was a couple months ago. Dell had a much pricier ryzen 4000U laptop

    The New ODROID Is A Beast!

    Corsair Flash Voyager 128 GB 3.0 gets 440 MB/s and 210 MB/s (both sequential). There is a 3.2 gen 1 model that gets 430 MB/s read and write seq. The caveat is you need a UASP compatible USB 3.0 port and the mobo driver installed...

    Fusion energy device sets a record by running for 20 seconds

    Why is that foolish? They recently found how to increase food production by 70% by combining algae proteins into plants. Maybe it makes more sense to create a massive panel and export the energy into batteries. There are so many untapped possibilities it will only get better.

    Fusion energy device sets a record by running for 20 seconds

    Literally the entire planet and all life is fueled by the sun, except for a small fraction of geo thermal vents. We simply need to understand the molecular processes that organisms use to efficiently convert this. Nothing is a bandaid and will all work in a synergy. Batteries improve as well...

    Sony removes Cyberpunk from the PS playstore

    I bought an overclocked i7 (runs as good as an 8700k stock) + mobo + 32gb ddr4 memory for $230. But if I'm just upgrading my GPU the $500 3070 has some advantages. Both are good options. If you're talking about 5 years though next gen GPU's will be faster.

    Sony removes Cyberpunk from the PS playstore

    Yea very dumb, it's not like their pc sales would've been bad by any means. Plus they haven't even gotten around to adding ray tracing on rdna2 making it even more pointless to release on consoles. GPU wise it should be able to handle 1080p with raytracing. So now Microsoft jumped on the chance...

    AMD Ryzen in 2021: Warhol, Van Gogh and Cezanne?

    Did I miss something or is 7nm+ being rebranded to 6nm? Or does that have more to do with Samsung's fab? Some of these should be 7nm+

    New feature to calculate 'productivity scores' turns Microsoft 365 into an full-fledged workplace surveillance tool

    It's been part of office365 / azure for like 3 years now. Last I checked (2 years ago) it tells you who you email the most and how much time you spent/wasted per contact. Plus how much time on conf calls, and how much time you spent working more than 8 hours (including reading and answering...

    NVIDIA Ampere to offer 10-20% IPC increase over Turing, 4x RT performance with minimal FPS impact, up to 2 GHz OC clocks, and an overhauled software

    Gotta love competition. Next gen will actually be an upgrade and maybe bring prices down to pre-mining craze. Now it depends how big navi performs to see how nvidia responds

    China Bans Online Gaming and Chatting Internationally

    Stop being so petty with your gaming experience. It's never a positive thing when you hear about human rights getting stomped on like this. I'm equally disgusted with some of the comments here.

    why install patches as soon as they are out. I like to stay a solid month behind, by then the known issues in the cumulative update section will have something or not.

    Intel Core i9-10900K benchmarks have leaked, and it's still slower than the Ryzen 9 3900X

    You realize any security vulnerabilities found are tested against Intel and AMD chips right? Even ARM chips get tested.

    Intel Core i9-10900K benchmarks have leaked, and it's still slower than the Ryzen 9 3900X

    What did you expect from 14nm, they've basically reached the highest clock speed and core count without starting a fire. It'll buy them another 6 months, I guess.

    Security Implications of AMD’s Cache Way Predictors - funding by Intel

    Hmm so JavaScript via web browsers (probably only certain versions). Leaked information seems to be limited. Still seems more secure than Intel's unpatched spectre variant 1 (even upcoming ice lake) The researchers also noted that unlike the Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities, the Take A Way...

    Second Batch of February 2020 Cumulative Updates Out for Windows 10 Versions 1903 and 1909

    You can still make an encrypted connection over 389, the change is two GPO settings that's been available for over 2 years so there's nothing new besides a registry change. You can just change it back and let your unencrypted passwords sync.

    Windows 10 Warning: Anger At Microsoft Rises With Serious New Failure

    What. You don't have 200 txt files full of random PowerShell, Cisco commands, and other random scripts? What if you remember just one part of the command? Search is great for that. If it actually works like it used to.

    Windows 10 Warning: Anger At Microsoft Rises With Serious New Failure

    Actually that's all it needs to do.. Just end the current process so it can spawn with the reinstalled one that will magically work Though I agree with your sentiment lol, would be nice to just have a simple search built into the start menu

    Windows 10 Warning: Anger At Microsoft Rises With Serious New Failure

    There's actually an easy fix for this. Some PowerShell command that reinstalls cortana and all windows store apps. Then killing cortana in task manager and you can search again. Go to method 3, may as well reboot after

    Threadripper 3990X 64C HEDT Outperforms Dual Xeon Platinum 8280 CPUs Costin $20K

    Comparing this to an Intel/esxi combo... Unless your on latest esxi with vsphere 6.7update3 using the better optimized performance mitigation kernel option, guess what happens when an Intel cpu is over 70% usage, you lose performance... 30% if you max the CPU out or 1% for each percentage over...

    Optane persistent memory

    If you have an Intel cpu (certain models) and an m.2 drive using Intel optane drives there's an option to use some of it as system memory (tricks the OS so it sees it as memory anyways). Also supposedly it will survive a reboot and no data lost

    Threadripper 3990X 64C HEDT Outperforms Dual Xeon Platinum 8280 CPUs Costin $20K

    This makes me want to toss all 5 Intel servers into the recycling pile, which still doesn't add up to 128 cores
