There has been much speculation about the next series of graphics cards from NVIDIA for quite some time, and now one of them seems to have appeared in the TechPowerUp GPU database, along with some specifications. It is the GeForce GTX 1180 now listed, and according to TPU it uses a GV104 GPU, which means it is derived from the Volta architecture...

It looks like the news from last week about ASRock's Phantom Gaming graphics cards not being for sale in Europe was not entirely accurate. That news came from the German Tom's Hardware review of one of the cards, when a company representative inquired as to how the review unit was gotten, and then saying it was AMD that told ASRock to not sell t...

After the discovery of the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities went public early this year, it is not surprising security researchers have continued to explore the speculative computing algorithms these vulnerabilities were present in for more issues. Thus far, apparently eight new vulnerabilities have been found that Intel CPUs are susceptible...

This is likely a bit embarrassing for Microsoft, as security researchers discovered its patch for Windows 10 to protect against the Meltdown vulnerability itself had a vulnerability. The researchers discovered calling NtCallEnclave would return to the user space the full kernel page table directory. In other words, if that call is made the whole...

For months now, Intel has been making moves demonstrating a serious interest in entering the discrete GPU market, from hiring Raja Koduri from AMD's Radeon Technologies Group last year to its first day-0 driver for its integrated GPUs released last week. Now, according to TweakTown's sources, Intel has completed the first steps in making its dGP...

At the end of March, ASRock entered the graphics card market with its Phantom Gaming cards, which use AMD's Polaris GPU. Unfortunately if you live in the European market, the company is not allowed to sell them there because AMD has not agreed to allow them to, according to an ASRock Sales Manager. This was discovered after ASRock reached out to...

According to a post on NVIDIA's blog, the company has ended its GeForce Partner Program (GPP). This is the program Kyle Bennett of [H]ardOCP published an article on back in March where he states his sources, who required anonymity to speak with him, and the documents he saw painted a very different picture of GPP than what NVIDIA stated publicly...

For the release of the Windows 10 April feature update, Intel released its first Day-0 GPU driver. While those of us running AMD and NVIDIA GPUs are familiar with getting new drivers the day of some important release, whether it is a game or operating system update, Intel has a reputation for waiting potentially months after a release to update ...

While many of us celebrate and enjoy the speed SSDs give us, the fact remains that for storage capacity, the traditional HDD is the more economical option. That is until a hard drive fails on us, and then we want to swear to only use more reliable SSDs (if only we could afford the multi-terabyte versions). Cloud storage company Backblaze uses ov...

While it only represents a sample of all computers, the Steam Hardware Survey can be a source of information on what hardware and operating systems are used by gamers around the world. Unfortunately, since August 2017 the data has been inaccurate due to an over counting issue with cyber-cafes, but now fixes have been put in place.

If you look a...

While this is certainly not the kind of news any company wants to give, it also appears to not be as bad as it could be. Twitter recently discovered a bug in its system for storing passwords that produced an internal log of all passwords, unmasked. While there is no evidence the passwords left Twitter's systems or were misused, the company still...

Last year AMD demonstrated the potential of combining components within dies and between dies to make powerful CPUs. With its Infinity Fabric, the distinct Zeppelin dies in the Threadripper and Epyc processors are able to work together, making 16 core/32 thread consumer products and 32 core/64 thread server products possible, and within the Zepp...

Thursday is upon us, with a few items to get you closer to that weekend. We have a look at the Fractal Design Meshify C Mini Dark TG case, sporting a tempered glass side panel that's nice and smoky to obscure what you have inside and that should look quite good with some interior lighting. For those after fast storage, and a lot of it, there's a...

If you have tried to build or upgrade a computer in recent months, you undoubtedly noticed the high price of some components, such as the graphics card. While many attribute the inflated costs of graphics cards to cryptocurrency mining, another factor has been the cost of DRAM chips, which impacts graphics cards, system RAM, and mobile devices. ...

15 People Arrested in China for Selling PUBG Cheats

The game Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds has been banning people for cheating, as is common with video games. PUBG has taken it a step further, however, as the developers are arresting the creators of the cheats. These cheats contained Trojans (and who knows what else) that enabled the creators to steal user information. PUBG is actively targetin...

Last week AMD shared it had a 7 nm Radeon Instinct card in its lab, and apparently someone there decided to run 3DMark11 with it. Compared to the 14 nm Vega Frontier Edition, it does lose with a graphics score of 26,323, compared to 28,938, but it is also an engineering sample with early drivers, so if/when we see new results, the scores will mo...
