    Another, another Zen 2 Leak

    Still cooler than an i9-9900k with +100mhz OC
  2. Somehow AMD will beat Intel to market with USB4 baked into a chiplet given Intel's recent track record. /sarcasm

    Apple Will Award Teen Who Discovered FaceTime Bug

    Well handled by Apple for sure.

    Death of the Lightning port

    Check out the Audeze iSine LX with the Bluetooth adapter cable for $249.

    Apple Kills Google's Enterprise Development Certification

    Wanna know my search history for free...? 60% Pornhub, 30% how to remove strange viruses, 10% facebook and LTT. It's a joke people.

    Asrock Unveils Phantom Gaming X Radeon VII 16G

    As far as we can see all AMD GCN cards have very good compute power... crypto mining is a good example of that. RX performed well for gamers and compute alike, and Vega has been very successful for compute workloads.

    Death of the Lightning port

    I'm not sure... To my knowledge it's not a restriction of OLED. I was under the impression that the reason iPads aren't OLED yet is the cost of an OLED screen of that size. Probably not such a big deal running into 2020 as the cost has likely decreased significantly since they would have had those in development.

    Death of the Lightning port

    Well money aside (licensing fees for Lightning acessories), the reason they designed it was they wanted a port that was durable, thin, and user-friendly which USB-C mostly is. They could also replace the fees earned off Lightning by locking devices that don't use their chipsets like the LAM2 chip for external audio processors in Lightning connector headphones which they could easily adapt to USB-C. However with the onset of BT 5.0 and 5.1, I don't see wired headphones continuing to be a thing for mobile applications (unless you're using a DAP).

    Death of the Lightning port

    Apple is reportedly testing an iPhone with USB-C instead of it's propriety Lightning connector. I'd say it's a safe bet that the replacement iPhones coming will forgo the Lightning connector for USB-C given the move to USB-C for all other Apple devices. As a long-time Apple user, I'm excited for the move. There are a lot of great USB-C devices out there and since accessory manufacturers tend to follow Apple's lead it will hopefully lead to a wider range of USB-C accessories for all phones, computers, etc. Now we just have to get them to update all their keyboards, mice, and other first party accessories to USB-C. P.S While you're at it Apple, please give VRR 120hz screens https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-01-30/apple-is-said-to-prep-new-3-d-camera-for-2020-iphones-in-ar-push

    Need recommendation for new Ryzen CPU

    Just buy the Ryzen processor that fits under your $200 budget. I'd personally wait for the 3000 series as it looks like it will be a significant upgrade for gaming with IPC improvements and clock speeds. I'd go Ryzen 2600 if I was going to buy now.
  11. I would say it's inevitable... I'd also say this interview from CES 2019 alludes to it. https://www.anandtech.com/show/13909/ces-2019-amd-ceo-dr-lisa-su
  12. Lisa has basically confirmed that there will be up to 16c/32t Ryzen processors in this interview: https://www.anandtech.com/show/13909/ces-2019-amd-ceo-dr-lisa-su
  13. Somewhere in AMD they'll have an engineering sample of a SoC using Zen + Vega on HBM2.

    Nvidia cuts revenue projections by $500m

    It's a combination of the following having weaker performance than predicted, rather than just one: Chinese gaming card sales Data center Turing card sales Excess inventory

    Nvidia cuts revenue projections by $500m

    It's literally the first sentence of the opening paragraph and quoted directly from the release in my post.
