    How can you still use your old 128 and 256 GB SSD drives?

    Windows Storage Spaces if you want to combine them into 1 pool If you have spinning drives in the system. Use them as a cache drive with PrimoCache. 128GB or 256GB of write cache can make a spinner feel amazing.

    PlayStation 5 Pro and New Xbox Series S / X Specs and Release Date Leaked by TCL

    Was the PS5 Pro the one that will actually be sold in stores? I’ve been waiting for that one.

    AMD announces Ryzen 7000 Zen 4 CPUs

    I also like this feature. Not every computer needs a dedicated video card. And with video card prices being what they are it sucks spending at least $150 extra just to get a desktop image. Plus with iGPU it means you are free to use full lane PCI slot for something like a NVME adapter. My CPU...

    We all need a little more of this in our lives. NFT Market Collapses Just As Square Enix Sells Tomb Raider To Bet Big On Blockchain

    The idea of the computer and the idea of something being unique cannot co-exist together. The entire purpose of a computer is to copy. You can’t stop the signal.

    That's all folks!!

    Sounds like a interesting book. Lucky 381 people. The 3Dfx splash screen is one of coolest things I have seen in computers. It was always exciting to see that thing switch on. :cool:

    Intel launches AV1 Video encoder and decoder for processors with more efficiency and less power

    This is a competitor for h264/h265, not a replacement for QuickSync hardware encoding right?

    ‘Jack Dorsey’s First Tweet’ NFT Went on Sale for $48M. It Ended With a Top Bid of Just $280

    Even when Jack was on Joe Rogan 4 or 5 years ago, it was pretty obvious that the girl that was on there with him was playing the role of handler. Especially if you are going to have a guest like Tim Pool on at the same time.

    16TB M.2 SSD!

    100% real, just note that because of the USB protocol interacting with the aluminum case, that actual formatted space may be significantly less than what is advertised. Significantly……..

    Intel opens new Fab, moved up 18A process.

    Similar to what was mentioned previously, the company I work for manufacturers the actual wafers here in the United States. But then we ship the wafers to Asia to get diced up and put in the black packaging. Lots of good paying jobs here in the states, but ultimately the chips do end up in Asia.

    Intel opens new Fab, moved up 18A process.

    Nice try, it’s in Portland. Not the USA. We had a ex-Intel guy recently join us here in Texas. He just straight up moved to Texas and THEN looked for a job in the semiconductor industry. Getting out of Portland was more important to him than having another job lined up. I can’t imagine that...

    ‘Jack Dorsey’s First Tweet’ NFT Went on Sale for $48M. It Ended With a Top Bid of Just $280

    Jack may have been a hostage to the machine. He has historically tweeted things that were questionable in the context of Twitters general practices. And he is already starting to open up now that he is no longer the face of twitter. We will see.
