    What If Zen 2 Actually Sucks?

    I like analysis. It's like a form of entertainment that doesn't make you dumber. And on YouTube of all places. What are the odds? Anyway if in real practice the only advance would end up being significantly higher clock speeds than I get out of my R7 1700, then I'll take it.

    Windows 10 Will Uninstall Incompatible Updates

    Can't wait for some random OEM system to be hit by a bug that automatically uninstalls a working driver. Preferably networking, lol.

    Denuvo 5.6, Used in Metro Exodus, Has Been Cracked in Five Days

    Good. Now if the developer patches out Denuvo together with some performance optimisations (or simply adds in more detailed settings), then I'll consider playing the game.

    Global Foundries May Be Sold

    Hopefully none of the top manufacturers will gobble it up. There's value in spreading these techs around. GloFo might still have some tech in their portfolio that might be tasty to the major actors though. Otherwise there's relatively easy money to be made in making chips on existing nodes...

    NVIDIA on DLSS: "It Will Improve over Time"

    Interesting how they now mention that if the framerate becomes too high, then DLSS stops working because it can't keep up. Yeah, this kind of tech belongs on consoles.

    Yes, Rian Johnson Is Still Working on His "Star Wars" Trilogy

    We should have accepted it already when Lucas mis-edited the first trilogy. It was never going to get better. To be fair I didn't mind Rogue One as a one-off movie. If they could make another like it but without any franchise tie-ins that are there only for the money grub then I'll watch that too.

    Google Backtracks on Chrome Modifications That Would Have Crippled Ad Blockers

    That's something. Not that I would stop expecting the Chrome development team to give us surprises at any instant. They eventually had me give Firefox a chance and I'm surprised to say I'm not going back to Chrome/Chromium any time soon at home as things look so far.

    AMD Says Partners Are "Free to Develop" Custom Radeon VII GPUs

    Expect some only if the manufacturers can get the chips and a lower price than could currently be expected, AND they're getting indications from AMD that Navi might slip further. To be having some new SKU to offer is almost always better than not to. The reference cooler seems to either be...

    Wendell Answers Questions About AMD Threadripper Regression Testing

    Video material is pretty much always less dense with information just compare TV news and written news since forever. I like having the audio, as I'm too busy at work for either and off work I enjoy the option of not reading anything off a screen.

    HyperX Sets DDR4 Overclocking World Record at 5608MHz

    The thought ocurred to me to think up some "funny" value for what the CAS latency might have been. But I would not have guessed as high as 31 off the cuff. Engineering sample CPU might be worth to note.

    Facebook is Allegedly Focusing On a Small AR Headset

    Something like this could well become a significant thing in workplaces. I just don't think that even there will people feel comfortable with it being a Facebook product. Their reputation may well be beyond recoverable.

    Take-Two Interactive to Pay NBA up to $1.1 Billion in Licensing Fees

    This should be about 90 % of the cost of making the next seven games. It's all covered by sales and then the extra fees for unlocks is pure profit. The rising cost of lining pockets to avoid regulation is a pittance

    AMD "Gonzalo" APU Could Feature 8 Zen Cores and Navi Graphics

    I largely despise using laptops for my personal computing, but one of these in a shell like a Lenovo ThinkPad has a small chance of winning. Would have to be using Zen 2 though.

    CVAA Regulations Affecting Multiplayer Chat Just Went Into Effect

    All it takes in most games is a few options in line with the color blindness already available in many products with reasonable UX design. Cry about that in any multi million dollar production and we know what to expect of the user interface in general
