12-core AMD 3900X - does it need better cooling? by John Savard
The recent announcement of the 3950X from AMD startled me. Unlike the other new Ryzens, it doesn't include a Wraith cooler in the box. Instead, it is recommended that at least a 280mm AIO cooler be used with it. Not being an overclocker, I had to do some web searching to get a feel for what was...

Naval cord passing conciousness to infant (Or passinginformation/software to new computer) by [email protected]
I wonder what it would take to put some software on some new computer with minimal complexity. What I came up with was some simple cord to pass digital information into the new computer with some bits. Perhaps a wait time or some other pattern to recgonize the start of the signal and then dump...

color of ethernet ports? by [email protected]
I have seen pictures of some high-end mainboards, which have a red ethernet port and a black port. The red being a 2.5GBASE-T port. Sombody told me that 10 Gbps ports are blue, but I doubt that. Last place I worked at had a cluster with 10GBASE-T and I am sure it was all Henry Ford black. USB has...

64-core processor, a dream cpu or a nightmare monster ? =DDDD by [email protected]
I am drooling over the idea of having a C64 =D Which in this case would be a C=computer 64=cores ! LOLOLOL. I really want a 64-core computer, which would be capable of 128 threads. I wanted such a parallel computer since 1999 or so, and it has taken this industry almost 20 years to reach that...

DVI v DisplayPort by Peter Johnson[_5_]
I have a monitor connected to my PC using DVI ports on both. But the monitor has DisplayPort capability. Would there be any advantage in installing a video card with DisplayPort capability in the PC and using DP instead of DVI?

Intel halves the price of 18-core i9! by [email protected]
yesiree, 10980XE will be half the price of 9980XE No doubt due to competition from AMD. Although I heard elsewhere that Intel didn't sell that many of the 998OXE, as not enough dies had full 18 cores working. Charge $2000 and that would dampen demand to what they could supply. So have Intel got...

Is it possible to update Windows 7 without adding any Windows 10 "features"? by [email protected]
I just built a new machine. I think I remember reading that Microsoft was adding some of the Windows 10 snooping capabilities to Windows 7 updates. I'm just wondering if that's true, and how to tell which updates to avoid if it is.

New (to me) Rescue Image (Bootable WinPE) by Shadow[_2_]
Won't post in alt.comp.freeware, not sure how "freeware" it is. https://sergeistrelec.ru/ Has just about everything thrown in, and you can add more stuff, but then you would might need to burn it to a pendrive, too big for a DVD. Disclaimer: Nothing broke here, so not tested.
