    Ryzen 7 3700X Trades Blows with Core i7-10700, 3600X with i5-10600K: Early ES Review

    By what benchmarks? All that I am seeing on the various benchmark sights seem to show them about on par with one being just a few percent above the other back and forth.

    Ditch the credit card form factor and go with an RSA 2FA key fob with the chip / nfc system built in, for each transaction you push the button and input the code. Why is this so hard to do? I have had a 2FA key fob on my Blizzard account for a decade.
