    WARNING.. very contrarian view point ahead - After watching the full version of the first Hardware Unboxed Podcast where HU Steve says he often talks to GN Steve, and then watching GN's Hardware News for Steve's comments on Linus' LTT Forum responses, I am starting to get the vibe that...

    Intel 2022 Keynote

    I went to the link that Intel listed on the slide that Meeho posted looking for actual numbers but none were found. I did find this listed.. Intel apparently used 14th and 15th gen CPUs in this comparison. No wonder Intel got better results than the Ryzen CPUs!! I also thought it was...

    Gamers Red Hot with Fury over Intel Core i7-7700 Temperature Spikes

    Thanks Zarathustra[H] for the message as your comments spurred me on to do some more "investigating".. and interesting about the "forum failure" which I never heard of.

    Gamers Red Hot with Fury over Intel Core i7-7700 Temperature Spikes

    This "Principal Engineer (I Do not Represent my Employer on Twitter)" at Intel doesn't seem to have a problem of overclocking the 7700K.. especially when it is done with LN2.. He is the Intel "principal engineer" who had a problem with Kyle's 7700K overclocking attempts back in January and...

    My guess is it will be cheaper and slightly faster but more power hungry than a 1070

    Disney Will Never Alter or Restore Original Star Wars Trilogy

    I agree with Gordon Mah Ung that Lucas died during "Revenge of the Jedi" and the fake Lucas is responsible for the Ewoks.. "suddenly you get the Ewoks.. what the hell is that?", for Episodes 1-3, as well as changing the original Star Wars. That is why Shatner has no respect for the Lucas...
