    Pirated 4K Release Suggests iTunes DRM May be Breached

    Phil Spencer Comments on Developer Acquisitions and PC Gaming Plans

    Phil is great. Too bad his boss done't give a shit about consumer computing in any way. Xbox is the last bastion of cool stuff for regular people to use that Microsoft has. The rest is focused on selling cloud AI bullshit to corporate users, which is a growth area, but doing so at the neglect...

    Volvo Reveals the New Polestar 2 Electric Performance Vehicle

    You can emulate lower power by not stomping on the pedal. or, in a Tesla set acceleration to "chill," AKA "Grandma's Camry Mode" But that won't get you 500 miles of range. However, with my S100 I can easily do the rate 335 on road trips. Which, TBH, exceeds my bladder capacity. So it's not an...

    NVIDIA Stock Tanks 15% as the Company Cuts Q4 2019 Financial Guidance

    I think it's unlikely but within the realm of possibility. AMD needs to bring the same heat to NVIDIA that they have to Intel. $1200 flagship "consumer" GPUs are just insane.

    Here Is the AMD EPYC "Rome" C-Ray Demo

    Intel Seconds per core: 0.54 AMD seconds per core: 0.44 So a bit less than 20% faster with about 14% more cores? So at least in this case AMD seems to have an IPC win... So, AMD keeping the pressure on. Which is good for all of us. Really hope new consumer CPUs close or surpass the IPC gap...

    NVIDIA's First 65-Inch 4K HDR Gaming Display Arrives in February for $4,999

    I assume you can turn that off like on a real display. But this sounds like it's not HDMI 2.1 compliant. That is a bug fucking fail right there for a new display in 2019.

    NVIDIA's First 65-Inch 4K HDR Gaming Display Arrives in February for $4,999

    LOL. GSync in my living room? Sound bar? With a $5k display? Son, get some real speakers. Jesus. Call me when this is an OLED. '19 LG panels look amazing.

    Metacritic: Xbox One Didn't Have a Single Positively Reviewed Exclusive in 2018

    Meh. Horizon 4 is very good. Sea of Thieves got good. But generally, yeah, XB1 has some poor exclusives. However, for titles that are cross-plat? X1X is the way to go (exception: PC, of course). Evaluation after evaluation: titles available on multiple consoles play better on X1X. And XBL is...

    Chinese Hackers Are Targeting U.S. Military Contractors

    NYC Politician Wants to Ban Cashless Restaurants

It's a businesses being fucking stupid issue. Someone with a giant wad of cash should go nuts at one of these places then pay with cash and...

    Ubisoft to Censor Rainbow Six Siege to Appeal to Asian Territories

    "Asia" is pretty damn big and it not some homogeneous culture. I doubt this was to appease Japan. They're aiming at the lowest common denominator here. Probably China and South Korea for the "adult" themes. Singapore for gambling. The skulls and stuff, dunno.

    Intel Core i9-9900K 9th Generation CPU Review @ [H]

    If you're a streaming and are rocking an RTX card you'll get perfectly excellent results with NVENC. Not sure the value prop here beyond epeen megahurts. It is the fastest benchmark running CPU currently available. It's also way over priced. I'll just say this: the benchmarks posted show the...

    Intel Core i9-9900K 9th Generation CPU Review @ [H]

    Yeah, I think they're running on the ragged edge of what the current process can do. I was hoping for more. My decrepit 5930k is still chugging along at 4.5, no worries. Given the price and intended market segment I'm surprised this has an iGPU. Intel GPUs are the appendix of gaming rigs...

    Some Intel Chipset Production Rolled Back to 22nm

    Yet TSMC is solidly doing 7nm now? WTF Intel? I guess this is what getting lazy in the face of no perceived competition does. I've been solidly in the Intel camp for a long time (haven't run AMD since AthlonXP). 7nm Zen 2 could be great. If AMD closes the IPC gap I don't see why any...

    30 Minutes of Internet Access Costs Vacationing Family $13,470

    I have never had DATA work in airplane mode. And I have NEVER gotten data while at altitude when it's on. MAYBE on approach and then not sustained. What magic phone allows you to pull a fucking GIG at 35,000 feet off a cellular network?

    3D-Printed Gun Advocate Given Green Light to Distribute Plans to Others

    This genie will never get back in the bottle. I wonder how many folks will blow their hands apart with a chap-ass printed "gun?" LOL.

    Tesla Is About to Feel the Heat as Electric Car Manufacturers Roll Out New Cars

    They also don't want to sell them since you won't be coming in for service, which is where they make their money. A normal dealer has ZERO incentive to move EVs. Plus, most dealers a clueless about them. Disclosure: I own a Model S100D.

    Tesla Is About to Feel the Heat as Electric Car Manufacturers Roll Out New Cars

    Of the ones coming, the Porsche is the most intriguing. But here's what's missing: the charging network. CCS is not widely deployed. Like the other EV folks the Germans launch is half-assed. But the cars look great. Disclosure: I own a Model S100D.

    NVIDIA Controls AIB Launch and Driver Distribution @ [H]

    The real solution to this is for AMD to up their game and get in nvidias face at the top end. They need to do the nvidia what they're doing to Intel. At 4K (which is what I run at) the best AMD offering is on par with the 1080 while costing a little bit more (Asus Strix on amazon, R64 is $50...
