    Nvidia has "Unlaunched" the RTX 4080 12GB

    <ALERT!!!! Incoming video message from Jensen!!!> Hi, I’m Jensen. I’m standing here with my fake kitchen/dining room/outhouse in the background. I’m going to pretend you don’t realize it’s fake, because I’m pretty sure I’m definitely smarter than you. I’m smarter than you because I’m...

    Apple Devices Bricked By Helium Leak

    In the vast majority of cases, it is much cheaper to vent the helium. I totally get that seems crazy, given the high cost of liquid helium and the finite supply, but that's how the numbers work out for those of us running NMR facilities. There are two different situations. (1) When installing...

    Apple Devices Bricked By Helium Leak

    This is interesting. I do at least six NMR magnet fills with liquid helium a year, and my 4 year old iPhone 6 still works fine. It's company issued, so if it would just suck in a little more helium then maybe they'd finally refresh it :-p It's possible that the air handler in the building...

    Tech News from TWit Netcast Network Featuring Kyle Bennett and Patrick Norton

    That was great. Plus, the people I manage at work thought I was on a video-con, so they stopped barging into my office every 10 minutes!

    NVIDIA Pulling Plug on GPP

    This whole thing really gets me thinking. There are a few other top tier tech websites that must also have the connections to know what NVIDIA was pulling. They must have known what was going on, yet said nothing. Only Kyle had the guts to tell us the truth. How am I supposed to trust...

    NVIDIA Pulling Plug on GPP

    I wonder if Dell, HP, and perhaps Intel (due to their AMD licensed GPU) quietly let NVIDIA know that they were considering legal action?

    Apple Allegedly Throttles Older iPhones with Degraded Batteries

    This is happening to my work issued iPhone 6. The CPU frequency is progressively throttles down from 1400 MHz to ~1100 MHz, then 839 MHz, and then 600 MHz by the time the battery is at 80% charged. Actually my phone rearely will run at the rated 1400 MHz anymore. This is a relatively new...

    Most Consumer ISPs are Still Dreadful 2017 Edition

    We recently dumped Comcast and switched to Symmetrical gigabit for $40 a month ($52.91 a month after all the taxes and local city "fees"). And they don't treat me like crap like Comcast did. This is what happens when there is actually some competition.

    Mass Effect Andromeda Benchmarks Thread

    Supposedly using the Battlefield 1 SLI profile enables both GPUs, but there are some glitches. Those with early access and two GPUs might want to give it a shot and report back.

    "...[T]he ten nanometer test chips we're looking at now..." - Howard Marks, NVIDIA

    I have some of that sound deadening foam he mentioned, on the wall in my lab. It works quite well to reduce noise from fans, helium compressors, and various other items. At one point it was looking really dirty so we replaced it. While the walls were bare waiting for the new stuff to go on...

    Amazon Sandisk Ultra 2 960GB $199.99

    Was hoping to get a deal on a 1TB 850 EVO, but I'm just not seeing any right now. Couldn't pass up $175, even though I'm not impressed with the benchmarks. My 4 year old Corsair Force GT still works great, but @ 120GB it's getting to be a pain to manage Windows bloat and programs. This is...

    The Evolution Of Modern Game Controllers

    They did not even mention the Intellivision controller, which tells me they don't have a good grasp of early video game history. The Intellivision controllers certainly had their flaws, but they also enabled the first (small) steps towards more complex game play and strategy. Also, the...

    Asus 7950 DC II (Literally) Caught Fire

    First, let me say that life is too short to get angry enough to yell at the ASUS CR rep on a forum. That said, Raja's comments were very ill advised and reflect poorly on ASUS. More to the point, this is just another reminder that as buyers of higher end PC components, we should do business...

    Positive EVGA RMA Experience

    ASUS Z77 Motherboards - Official Support Thread
