  1. Added that to summary, nice catch I somehow missed that when reading the original article.
  2. Summary A University of Michigan team has created and tested a purportedly unhackable chip. Put to the test in a DARPA sponsored bug bounty, against 500+ hackers for 3 months, it remained secure. 'Morpheus' Block Diagram Quotes My thoughts This is fairly topical given all the news about Nvidia's 'unhackable' mining limiters. Although this might have more truth to it, 500+ hackers trying for 3 months doesn't definitively mean 'unhackable' but it's impressive all the same. And it makes me wonder if big tech companies
  3. Can't hurt, although I have paracord sleeved cables on my PSU so not very flat unfortunately.
  4. Thanks for the advice, I did try several variations of this idea and unfortunately none of them work. There's barely enough room for the connector block on the PCIe cable to fit between my 1070 and the inside of the case.
  5. I've been planning a mini-ITX build for a while now, and I've got all the parts I need (carrying over a few parts like my graphics card). Been slowly assembling it during lockdown and when it came to installing the graphics card I realised I messed up planning this build. My graphics card is an MSI GTX 1070 ARMOR OC, which is 140mm wide and the FTZ01 supports cards up to 149.3mm wide. Sounds great, 9.3mm of clearance, well I didn't think about the PCIe power cable... there's no way it'll fit so here I am. Below is an image from the case manual, I've highlighted the specific area wher
  6. Does anyone know a reliable place to get replacement GPU shrouds? I'm planning a minor GPU cooler and case mode that requires trimming the GPU shroud, which also acts as the fan assembly/mount and I don't want to permanently damage the resale value of the card. Specifically I'm after one for a GTX 1070 ARMOR 8G OC. (Picture below) Thanks in advance for any help or guidance!
  7. Just remembered I had this discount code and I'll never use it so why not give it away!? It's for 20% off one item purchased directly from the Logitech store. First person to message me I'll send the code over (Apologies if this is in the wrong forum!)
  8. Take the names with a handful of salt, Sapphire registered them with the EEC as a list of "possible product names" so I doubt that all of them will be used. It's likely that Sapphire just preemptively registered as many names as they could think of because AMD have yet to announce the actual naming scheme.
  9. I thank that's why its a list of "possible product names" there's no way AMD is going to release that many SKUs
  10. Watching that card turn into a supernova under full load would be a sight to behold awful majestic...
  11. I did the exact same thing just before Skylake was released! Bought a 4790k to swap out my 4590 and pretty much 24 hours later Skylake was announced...
  12. Since Nvidia torpedoed the RX5700(XT) launch with the RTX Super series cards its good to hear officially that AMD has products that will compete with Nvidia in the high-end market segment. AMD just held their Q2 earnings call with investors and the like where Lisa Su stated the following. This echoes "leaks" from Sapphire when they registered that massive list of "possible product names" with the Eurasian Economic Commission last month. Although bear in mind that the contents of the list were "possible product names" so I doubt Sapphire will release that many SKUs, a
  13. 40% more powerful than any other RISC-V chip is an impressive gain, it'll be interesting to see how the rest of the industry reacts to this. However, I doubt the chip will make it out of China as from the article it sounds like the chip is intended solely for the Chinese market. From the rest of the article it sounds like there's been some serious effort put into the design regarding instruction pipelines and bundling of instruction sets. Not to mention the fact that they're confident enough to release the relevant code as open-source on GitHub. Personall
