Because of the increasing market demand, AMD said that they are planning to increase production of graphics cards which are currently in short supply. Recently they launched RX Vega GPU that you simply can not buy anymore because of the raising popularity inside of the crypto mining community. AMD admitted that their Radeon cards were also in short supply and said that the “guilty ones” were exactly the mining applications. Therefore, the company promised to increase production and said that they are hoping to satisfy the growing demand without disappointing any of its customers. “The graphics channel is very low, and we are certainly working
If you are a liquid cooling fan, and specifically like All In One (AIO) liquid cooling systems due to their versatility, easy installation and maintenance free operation, then you know that one of the names that immediately comes to mind is Corsair, with their Hydro Series of compact, yet powerful cooling systems for CPUs. In fact, Corsair’s commands a leading market share and is rumored to make for almost half of annual revenue for their now former OEM supplier, Danish-American Asetek. Yet during this year’s Computex Taipei, Corsair had a surprise for all of us expecting the usual redesign of their well-known AIO cooler. This time
It is estimated that in 2015 over 88 million new cars were bought. Almost 53 million came out of just six manufacturers: Toyota, Volkswagen Group, General Motors, Renault-Nissan, Hyundai and Ford. If you add five million from FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles), that’s almost 60 million vehicles. It is of no surprise that traditional PC and mobile names such as NVIDIA, Qualcomm, Intel all see the automotive industry as a key battlefield. Tens of millions of processors promise advanced telemetry, self-driving or automated driving capabilities, new level of infotainment, and ‘always online’ vehicles. In a research document called Automotive Safety and Autonomous Driving Service, ABI Research put out a
Back in early December 2015, AMD invited their preferred media partners to brief them about the new company structure, where Radeon Technology Group (RTG, also known as ATI 2.0) will continue to bring products to market under the AMD banner until the (almost inevitable) spin-off occurs. In a run-up to CES 2016, which takes place in Las Vegas, NV, AMD made a formal announcement introducing the Polaris GPU architecture. In a video bewlo, Raja Koduri (head of RTG) spoke of innovation that was enabled by a logical transition from planar transistors (single-gate, i.e. 2-D) to multi-gate (i.e. 3-D) technology, with a variant of 3-D transistors being called FinFET. If
The AT&T carrier version of the Google Nexus 6 and has been found to be SIM-locked and a tethering check built into the ROM.
Anonabox was supposed to be an open sourced anonymizer that enabled people to quickly and easily browse the internet anonymously — except it was all a farce.
Enthusiasts are on a never ending quest to find better cooling for their CPUs. Air cooling is the norm these days, but affordable water cooling systems are becoming more affordable. Water cooling is the next step and can provide great cooling effectiveness. There are two ways to install a water cooling system into a computer. They are piecing together a system from individual parts, or a “closed-loop” system. Closed loop water cooler contains the block, pump, and radiator in a sealed loop (that usually require no maintenance). Many companies are now coming out with their own closed loop systems for enthusiasts. Today we will look
In case you never heard about AVC, this company is a well-known large OEM/ODM manufacturer of cooling equipment. If you own a retail boxed processor from either Intel or AMD, chances are that in the past or present, you had AVC-built cooler bundled with the CPU. As company description explains, this company has extremely long lead-times, needed for implementation into designs of computers from manufacturers such as Dell, HP, Acer and many others. If we take into account that the mainstream Nehalem platform (Lynnfield and Clarkdale processors, probably branded as Core i3 & i5) is set to debut this summer, it’s no wonder that i5
