    Intel Hit by a Devastating Data Breach, Chip Designs, Code, Possible Backdoors Leaked

    "Allegedly devastating"? :ROFLMAO: Couldn't resist. This could be bad for Intel on several legal fronts I imagine, if there are notes/comments or some evidence that points to management knowing about security concerns from speculative execution for example, and choosing to use those designs...

    Huawei-Powered Desktop PC Tested, Eight-Core 7nm Kunpeng 920 Processor

    A whirl, sure. But I'd never perform actions on it tied to money or private information. The real question is, is there a company that isn't going to beat Intel to 7nm!?

    Mixer shutting down, partnering with Facebook Gaming

    This broke Sunday from the only black person to work at Mixer during a 2 year period: I believe decision making upper management got a taste of bad PR as result of alleged racism, combined with their struggles and lower dent into Twitch's...

    Intel is still fighting a 10-year-old €1.06 billion antitrust fine for CPU rebates

    There need to be provisions with these cases that if defendant fights and appeals and does everything in their power to drag it on, there will be stricter penalties that kick in and drastically increase fines. This is ridiculous system abuse and utterly goes against common sense to defend tho...

    Halo: The Master Chief Collection Is Coming to the PC

    They actually released MCC for PC back then yes, but stated that games would be ported to PC over time, starting with Reach and probably in chronological order. So CE was just released, and if you purchased the MCC pack you should have it in your library! I'm going to wait for a sale on MCC...

    Intel Says It Won’t Regain the Lead until 5 Nm

    That's the part of the plot they don't want you to think about, and probably (just my guess) why 10nm didn't come out full force. The shrink helps improve efficiency of the entire part, but they NEED new architecture because they know exactly how riddled with security holes their existing...

    Best Eight-Core CPU Battle: AMD Ryzen 7 3800X vs Intel Core i7-9700K

    I'm not defending the article from OP, or attacking your reasoning here Dan_D but as I lurk around the internet, I don't see the same logic applied when comparing AMD & nVidia GPUs and I find that both curious and disappointing. This was to be a short two or three sentence post, but the more I...

    Arstechnica: The Mandalorian was shot on a holodeck-esque set with Unreal Engine, video shows

    Sure, but people who act have spent years mentally preparing, adjusting and adapting for green rooms, this is something new and at face value I would agree admittedly better. As is, they have to immerse themselves into the scene mentally, which is mostly separate from the filming process. How...

    Arstechnica: The Mandalorian was shot on a holodeck-esque set with Unreal Engine, video shows

    So like video games, where only the player FoV is drawn we're trading that in for the camera FoV? That's cool. I wonder if that helps or is a distraction to actors and actresses, depending on how drastic the resolution drops. Will be interesting to hear about this technology from their perspective.

    Google moving the data of its UK users to avoid strict EU privacy laws

    I don't care only because the information itself cannot be used to injure or harm myself...and I cannot speculate on a future scenario that exists in which it could. I'm not going to tell another they cannot feel differently, but I'm also not going to enable/encourage that thinking since it's...

    Google moving the data of its UK users to avoid strict EU privacy laws

    The real issue is that laws seem to be written with corporations in mind, even though at face value it is pro consumers. An easy solution to your specific statement? Make it so that the law applies to where the user is located/data is generated, not stored. UK data should fall under UK...

    Gamers are ditching Radeon graphics cards over driver issues

    What's funny to me is that I experienced the black screen issue on my Vega64 & Radeon VII, but eventually 'solved' it. Highest bid gets the solution*!! *Solution may only be applicable to my system. Positive resolution for other systems not guaranteed. All transactions final. (don't read...

    VMware Updates per-CPU Pricing Model

    I originally used harsher language as I was drafting my post, but being outside the circle entirely, I was not sure that's a fair statement. Personally, I am NOT a fan of arbitrary limits - which is what I see VMWare doing here. Could make a lot of analogies, but I think we all understand the...

    VMware Updates per-CPU Pricing Model

    The new messages in-line thread notification appears to be lagging behind Alerts considerably, at least ten minutes. Has it always been like that?

    Intel is losing against AMD

    Giant is subjective from my perspective as an [H] consumer, Intel just happens to be standing on a foundation of ill gotten cash. Most of what Intel has done in their CPU+++++++++++++++++ market is stumble, and they've remained relevant and 'on top' because of said cash. They've had genuine...

    Nvidia / Jensen trying to kill off the AMD FreeSync Branding? The F-ing #%$@ Suckers!

    It's not much ado about nothing, it's much ado about potentially something. Which was the message I took from AdoredTV's YT video bringing light to what could be GPP2. Is it? Not enough information, and not enough brands have made similar changes to support this opinion. Is it not? Too many...

    Epic paid $10.5 million upfront for Control exclusivity

    It's not a hurricane, but even if it were the issue many have is that it's being forced on them in a shady manner by paying for exclusivity and with a poor solution in place, AKA the actual EGS that has no justified reason to be a decade behind Steam in terms of features and capabilities.

    Intel Internal Document Details How It Will Counter the AMD Threat

    Intel Internal Document Details How It Will Counter the AMD Threat

    You haven't for the PC, but both the Xbox One and PS4 you own run on AMD, and the next generation of each console will also be AMD! Intel knows exactly how important mindshare is, one of the biggest positive unquantifiable returns of the practices that eventually lead to a lawsuit against them.
