    Microsoft Reveals Project xCloud: a Vision for Game-Streaming

    I haven't dug into it or tried it yet, but I did see this come across my feed earlier today: Currently only supports controller input, but they may add keyboard and mouse later.

    Intel CPU Shortages Are Expected to Worsen in Q2

    Same, but the corporate IT guy in me just wants it to end. We had a 6 week lead time with replacement PC orders before the shortages hit. Because of the shortages, HP added another 8-10+ weeks to our schedule. It actually got to the point where we stopped replacing PCs unless they absolutely...

    Google Discovers Vulnerabilities in Chrome and Windows 7

    Or the PC was purchased when 32-bit Windows was still and thing and the user never knew the difference. That's going to be a good many consumer PCs and also quite a few enterprise ones as well. I'm still running across 32-bit Win7 in the company that I work for, and it kills me. Some are vital...

    Huawei Launches a Lawsuit in Texas

    Also living in a rural area, I think that the best bet that we'll have for a reasonable wireless solution is something like what AT&T has been testing in rural Georgia. Results sounded quite promising, and they're supposedly close to a commercial launch. That sounds more likely to me since they...

    UK Will Require Age Verification for Porn Sites in April

    Maybe it's just me, but the discussion link on the main page takes you to the news article instead of this thread.

    The End of Blu-ray

    I'm calling absolute BS on the medium dying. I'm sure that it has taken a hit lately, however since there are still large swaths of the US and many other countries that don't have access to broadband internet I highly doubt that blu-ray is going anywhere in the next 4-5 years at least.

    Singaporean Retailer Lists Purported Ryzen 3000 Pricing

    I would assume that as long as power delivery isn't an issue all AM4 should support the higher core count. Considering the power efficiency gains that they achieved with 7nm, that likely isn't a problem for most decent boards.

    "World War Z" Studio: Epic Exclusivity Is "the Best Deal for Players and Developers"

    Well, of course. That's generally why businesses make business decisions. They can make money, cause their competitors to make less money, and help the consumer via lower prices thus garnering good will with the consumer.

    Rumor: Next-Gen Xbox to Be Revealed at E3, Releasing 2020 alongside Halo Infinite

    You also have to factor in that they'll be buying at a steep discount due to volume. Though, I wouldn't mind a SATA expansion slot to drop a 2.5in drive into as opposed to a USB drive.

    Far Cry New Dawn Launches Today

    Well, it is also priced more like an expansion pack than an independent game, so there is that.

    AdoredTV Reviews the Radeon VII

    Oh please, they've already figured out that it goes into the RAM slot instead. Duh!

    Forbes Tries To Game on Linux

    Or if you don't have Steam open on startup, then nothing gets updated. You also have to deal with data caps in certain areas and speed limitations (20Mbps and 40GB/mo before throttling to dialup speed.) Solution would be to just turn off auto update if you don't want to deal with it and just...

    AMD Clarifies Pro Driver Support for Radeon VII

    To my understanding, the "One Driver" initiative is for Pro Drivers to simplify the drivers for business users. If you've got a mix of consumer level and workstation level GPUs deployed, then you have to differentiate between the Pro level and consumer level (Radeon gaming) drivers. With this...

    Intel Xeon W-3175X Is the Fastest Workstation Processor on the Market

    Well, it has been found by the State of California to cause cancer.

    Intel Xeon W-3175X Is the Fastest Workstation Processor on the Market

    I'm curious to see a comparison with the power draw even between the two. Judging by the performance and power draw delta between the two, the Xeon doesn't look terribly efficient. Also, the motherboard for the Xeon is listed at $1800. I know that Gordon said in the video that he would've...

    WannaCry is Still Active in Hundreds of Thousands of Computers

    Company that I work for had a scare with this pretty recently... I would say that manufacturing companies are at a fairly high risk still since their process control networks tend to be populated with older and likely unpatched machines. If the networks aren't setup properly (in my experience...

    Amazon Sets Traps for Package Thieves

    This is actually fairly common for most carriers. I worked for a regional carrier whose main business was pharmaceutical deliveries to hospitals and pharmacies. This was a very frequent practice from the clients. We had the very rare theft by an employee (many drivers were actually independent...
