    NVIDIA Demonstrates Issues with Non-Validated FreeSync Monitors at CES 2019

    I like that they showed bad freesync monitors! These would be bad on AMD as well. The tech has been easy to do. Nivida was just milking it, and certifying that every G-sync monitor worked good., On the plus side if you order one of these and it sucked, send it back.

    AMD Officially Lowers the Pricing on Ryzen Threadripper First Generation Processors

    Sigh...My 6700K is suffering in my media PC, 2 Silicon Dust HD streams and youtube/netflix are hurting it. Was think about a Ryzen, but the new pricing makes me think about ThreadRipper. Just needs to fit in Thermaltake's V1. So SFF, mini ITX, I'm not sure there are any for ThreadRipper.

    NTSB Revokes Tesla’s Party Status

    I think Telsa does very well. It's not a jump in the back seat type of auto-pilot. Heck even Uber's super system killed someone in my home town and shouldn't have. I agree that the state should be partially at fault, I wonder how long the barrier was broken?
