    New Speculative Execution Bug Allegedly Affects Intel CPUs

    Either buy bottle of Vodka, or don't read scary news. Rowhammer is old stuff, this vulnerability was there for a long time. If you are datacenter you can run around in circles screaming why didn't we bought Atom, then look at performance per electricity per installed CPU figures, lack of ECC...

    Cryptocurrency Mining Slowdown Could Lead to GPU Price Cuts

    Netflix May Be Losing $192M per Month from Piracy, Cord Cutting Study Claims

    Is Netflix the same service that has 4x higher price in czech republic than in Australia? I heard from a girl that was in both countries and compared prices of some movie streaming service. Also I know before that service appeared nobody gave a damn about all theirs obscure movies freely...

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Turing Specs Allegedly Leak: 1.4GHz Base Clock, 4GB GDDR5

    64-bit with GDDR6 and passive cooling would be actually decent. (when cheap) But they would probably will not replace low end by 512 CUDA cores with 4 GB GDDR6 64-bit for 70$ with big heatsink 63$ for a "normal one slot cooling with fan". That would make too much sense

    Beamdog is "Looking Into" Neural Network Texture Upscaling

    Step 1. take old game. Step 2. get some upscaling algorithm for textures, thus avoid paying to artists to actually make better and high res images. Step 3. sell the game for full price even when it's remake, funnily years ago modders did similar texture and exe modifications free of charge. Step...

    GTX 1660Ti reviews out

    Compare STRIX vs STRIX, and compare GTX 1060 6G pricing half year ago with GTX 1660Ti pricing now. Sellers want to get rid of GTX 1060 6G cards before GTX 1660 would be released, thus they dropped prices quite a bit.

    GTX 1660Ti reviews out

    I just found that some of GTX 1660 Ti were not fit as merchandise. (Because they didn't came with working driver on DVD.) Looks like NVidia didn't want to leak performance before release, and kinda violated the law. People without ability to download driver are hosed.

    More 1660 TI Pictures Emerge as Launch Nears

    All these cards have 192-bit interface, thus all these cards gets 3/6 GB RAM. NVidia no longer does what I have on my GTX 660. Connect 3x2 RAM chips to 192-bit, 2x1 to 128-bit. (8 chips 2 GB RAM. They probably used single 192-bit controller with ability to work as 128-bit controller when it...

    Is my SSD dead?, Can I recover anything?

    How long it lasted and how many TB read/written? As a rule ALWAYS copy important data to other drive when you use SSD. Doing that once per 14 days means you lose only 14 days of work/important stuff. Normally it would mean failure of components between NAND and MB, but some SSD are known to use...

    Are there any reasons you WOULDN'T buy a high Core Count i9(12c+) discounting Money?

    You can use it to play Witcher 3. (Of course RAM controller was on chipset and it only supported DDR2 which had bad write rates.) But it was great for emulation. These in poverty overclocked E5xxx, or E7200/E7300. These who had money to make custom water cooling overclocked Qxxx. PS2 emulation...

    Intel's 8th Generation Core Family - Coffee Lake (LGA 1151, 6C/12T)

    When you want to show a screenshot from CPU-Z, it's smart idea is to prevent CPU downclocking before making a screenshot. I'm so hardcore overclocker, looking at a CPU running at defaults is giving me weird feeling. Are really people who are doing that? Then I remember, majority of them, I just...

    Latest news on Broadwell?

    Not Summer. Intel has its release buckets, and the earliest release bucket is end of August/early September. I expected HW-E at Novermber/December release bucket. And considering Intel would want to have some mainboards available, we would probably see some MB info leaks first.

    Large cache means data would stay in the cache. More cores as well would be great, but it also means higher power consumption, or HW locked thermal limits. I'd want both 128 MB L4 cache AND more cores. There is never enough cores. Actually I'd want also caches optimized for high power...

    What would they use after DDR4?

    Intel's TIM

    That's a Conroe, which must be incredibly worn out. Better idea might be to get Wolfsdale. Of course if you have watter cooling, 65 nm CPU would allow easier heat removal. Also it's DDR2 RAM speed limited. Better overclocking needs FAST RAM.

    Haswell-E Q3

    8 cores would be for 1000$ don't worry about it. Users complained about miniscule differences between X and K CPUs, Thus Intel would create K 6 cores for 600 $ and X 8 cores for 1000 $. Actually I wonder if there would be 4 core HW-E.
