    PC Cases Transformation due to gamers
    • Just compare same quite cheap price Thermaltake Case

      Present model


      With idea to mount HDDs such:


      And previous gen case


      Lot of places to put stuff and keep it near fans. Plus it has nice 3.5"/2.5" build in dock for HDDs on top.

      Quite obvious why marketers love RGB and empty cases - they bring much more profits.

    Capitalism: Crypto scam fading can hurt GPU sellers
    • Including makers of GPU chips

      Nvidia has reported record revenues of US$3.21 billion for the first quarter ended April 29, 2018, up 66% on year and 10% on quarter, with its net earnings shooting up 244% on quarter to a new quarterly high of US$1.24 billion, due partly to robust shipments of mining graphic cards. The company commanded a 70% share of the mining market segment worldwide.

      And GPU Card makers

      Micro-Star International (MSI), Gigabyte Technology, Asustek Computer, and TUL all posted record revenue and profit performances for first-quarter 2018. Gigabyte, for instance, saw its net earnings skyrocketed five-fold on year and 91% sequentially to a record high of NT$1.61 billion (US$53.75 million) for the quarter, while TUL, dedicated maker of graphic cards, also posted record high net profits of NT$313 million and EPS of NT$10.3 for the same quarter.

      Sudden decline in demand for mining graphics cards in April caused TUL's revenues for the month to plunge 80% sequentially to NT$280 million, the lowest since May 2017.

    New Intel CPUs flaw will slow down PC by up to 8%
    • Microsoft and Google are jointly disclosing a new CPU security vulnerability that’s similar to the Meltdown and Spectre flaws that were revealed earlier this year. Labelled Speculative Store Bypass (variant 4), the latest vulnerability is a similar exploit to Spectre and exploits speculative execution that modern CPUs use.

      “If enabled, we’ve observed a performance impact of approximately 2-8 percent based on overall scores for benchmarks like SYSmark 2014 SE and SPEC integer rate on client 1 and server 2 test systems,”

      “We are continuing to work with affected chip manufacturers and have already released defense-in-depth mitigations to address speculative execution vulnerabilities across our products and services,” says a Microsoft spokesperson. “We’re not aware of any instance of this vulnerability class affecting Windows or our cloud service infrastructure. We are committed to providing further mitigations to our customers as soon as they are available, and our standard policy for issues of low risk is to provide remediation via our Update Tuesday schedule.”

      How strange. As soon as manufacturers hit the brickwall and we see lack of real improvements all of a sudden lot of bugs appeared that slowed down existing CPUs, and new ones with fixed of this bugs won't need any real improvements now!
