    Real-Time Ray Tracing Support Comes to GeForce GTX GPUs and Game Engines

    That's what I have been saying as well, but the more I think about it, that should be handled by the CPU now that the core wars has begun between intel and AMD. Best to probably let those extra cpu cores sitting around doing nothing handle it and let the GPU focus on the graphical bits imo.

    Intel Delivers First Exascale Supercomputer to Argonne National Laboratory

    *500,000,000 How does this stack up against the Stanford Folding at Home super-computer? Obviously you can't compare them in their application, I'm just wondering what the flops are comparatively.

    What If Zen 2 Actually Sucks?

    I think the hype train is more about Intel being stuck on their 14nm architecture for another year while Zen is getting a node shrink now after ryzen already got them really close. For the first time in a very long time AMD could very well take the crown away from Intel and it won't take much...

    What Happens When You Water Cool an Air Cooler?

    That's cool, those were a little pricy for me and ended up just saying to heck with it and going custom loop. Definitely heard good things about noctua air cooling fans. I was just talkin about the noise, but your point of only space for a smaller rad does make sense. If you are limited to...

    What If Zen 2 Actually Sucks?

    I think PCIE 5.0 is slated to drop in a year or two as well. DDR5 and PCIE5 are both way more exciting (especially the PCIE) than any of the upcoming CPU's IMO

    Parents Blame Elementary School's Cell Tower after 4th Student Diagnosed with Cancer

    Parents Blame Elementary School's Cell Tower after 4th Student Diagnosed with Cancer

    On a plus note, at least they aren't blaming vaccines and putting the lives of other children directly at risk.

    Parents Blame Elementary School's Cell Tower after 4th Student Diagnosed with Cancer

    This goes back to 2016 so it's gotta be a 4G tower. What sucks is there may be a legit source of carcinogens in the region, but these knuckleheads wanna just blame something that's absolutely safe. Also, whenever I see the word "specialist", especially next to a scientific term, it's a...

    Footage Shows a Click Farm in Action

    What's horrible is I can absolutely see the world's first true quantum computer (sans my tinfoil theory that the gov't already has several up and running that are classified) being utilized for realistically liking and disliking social media garbage. edit: I would have to imagine the U.S., if...

    Gigabyte Factory Tour Shows Motherboard Manufacturing from Start-To-Finish

    I'm actually using a Gigabyte Mobo right now, the Aurous 9 X299 as at the time it was the only board that the VRM's weren't catching on fire and limiting the CPU by throttling. As far as build quality it's actually a really good board, but the BIOS, ugh, it's a hot mess, and don't get me...

    Passively Cooling the Intel i9-9900K

    Never understood the whole passive cooling thing on desktop units outside of the gimmick aspect of it. Need at least 1 fan to white noise out the coil whine. Found that out on my current set up which is water cooled and the rads/pump are about 10 ft away from the rig in the closet (ran tubing...

    Raja Koduri Discusses Leaving AMD for Intel in Interview

    Like others said, they don't have a lot of teeth in reality, and in the few cases that they do, the new company can settle out of court for the previous company to drop charges. Basically intel can stroke a check to AMD to have them void the non-compete if it comes to that.

    ASUS PRIME X299 DELUXE II Motherboard Review @ [H]

    You wrote quad, not 4-way. It's correct, no typo's good to go. Was mostly making fun of myself for just glazing over and then spending 5 minutes trying to find a 4th full PCIE slot. Should have been more clear, my bad.

    IBM's Project Debater AI Takes on a Human

    "Supports 4-way SLI" *Has 3 full-sized PCIE slots* Edit: I know it's nit-picky, wholly irrelevant, and technically correct as I'm sure it can run 4-way SLI with two Titan Z's. Just glanced and saw the 4-way sli bit and thought "hold up, did I miss a PCIE slot somewhere?" And this made me...

    Xing Mobility EV Batteries Use Liquid Immersion Cooling

    No clue which one they are using, but the lowest pour point on the few I looked at as -38 C while most were in the -100 C range. As a guess, since it's pour point and not freezing point, it turns into a sludge or gel at those temps rather than freezing solid. Here are the full specs on all...

    Xing Mobility EV Batteries Use Liquid Immersion Cooling

    On a side note, outside of a little extra weight, why not use the standard pump radiator anti-freeze model of the combustion engine? edit: obviously for a "super-car" squeezing every last little bit out possible is the goal, but just in general, if cooling the batteries has a beneficial...

    3M Demonstrates PC With Submersion Cooling

    I'm not laughing at all. The stupid price of fitting is the only reason I didn't switch to rigid tubing in my last build. Didn't have the stomach to drop another $500+ on fittings when I have something along the lines of $1,000 worth in fittings laying around from previous builds...

    TSMC is Allegedly Apple's Sole A13 Supplier

    If it weren't for the fact that Apple being Apple probably paid extra to jump to the front of the line for 7nm node production I would be inclined to think this would be a possibility. As it stands that 3-4 month period ahead of schedule will be filled with nothing but making these Apple chips...

    3M Demonstrates PC With Submersion Cooling

    lol fine, get a second gallon for the cost of your blocks and tubing. (looks like radiators, fans and pumps are still necessary for this stuff, so it's "only" of similar cost to a custom loop if you stop at 2 gallons)
