    CPU for VM Heavy Build.

    Just to play a sort of devils advocate you might want to also think about future proofing. It seems as if Zen 2 will be on par with the 9900k and if you want PCIe thoughput PCIe 4.0 will help. Also because the 2700x is cheeper you could invest the difference in storage if you are on a budget.

    The 2018 Butterfly Keyboards still have a problem

    I have some experience using these keyboards and as long as they don't have any dust I prefer the butterfly switches to Apple's older ones. They definitely have more tactile feedback, or at least it feels like they do. They definitely are more like mechanical keyboards Than the previous ones and I think that is what they were aiming at.
  4. The reason why Ryzen doesn't have iGPUs on the higher side is that they won't fit on the die. They take up the space of a whole CCX so that is the reason why ZEN APUs don't have more than 4 cores.

    Could this be used to eliminate the notch?

    Samsung was actually hurt by the low sales of the iPhone X.

    How to be motivated to go to the gym?

    There is no better time to start again than now. Walking is great and while it may not be the most effective method of exercise just getting outside is good.
  7. With the closing IPC gap of zen 3. The Ryzen core counts will definitely help with streaming.

    Apple REFUSED to Fix our iMac Pro

    Not sure if it is too late to post this, but I think that Apple is able to repair this but unwilling. LTT has given apple an especially hard time and it seems that their iMac pro video was viewed a lot. Apple may have deliberatly been trying to send Linus a message to not buy their products again, believing that getting rid of years worth of bad reviews in the future was worth a few video rants, especially due to youtube's algorithm burying older videos. When I think about this sometimes I feel like i'm onto something. Other I feel like i'm just stupid and conspiratorial.
  9. I have the TG version, however it has great cable management and cooling so I think the same applies to the non TG version.

    Intel buying out AMD rumors

    There are precedents for monopolies like these and not much is done.

    Vega VII Naming

    A lot of people have been talking about the Radeon VII and its name's meaning. 7nm or Vega II are the most popular explanations. Does anyone else think that it is sort refering to the rx 7xx sieries, like vega 56 and 64 were rx 6xx, or is it just me?
