PS/2 vs USB Keyboard and why Logitech K120 belongs in trash ! by [email protected]
Hello, In this video I prove why PS/2 keyboards are better for typing and gaming. https://youtu.be/fQxe7MXUYOo In short: PS/2 drivers are optimized and use less CPU cycles and thus will remain responsive in HEAVY CPU GAMING USAGE. Logitech K120 USB Keyboard has BAD drivers and TINY annoying...

2-in-1 RAM adapter by SC Tom
Years and years ago, there used to be these adapters that you could plug 2 sticks of RAM in to increase the amount memory in each slot (had some on an old 386 or 486 PC). Are they still being made that would work on DDR3 RAM, or are the newer memory speeds making that unstable? I have a number...

new Threadripper 3900 memory access modes? by [email protected]
I read a review at wccftech, which has this intriguing sentence: With memory access modes, users can select between UMA (maximum memory bandwidth) and NUMA (lowest latency) modes. So what is going on? I guess there are 2 memory controllers which are married to a CPU die, but can be linked to act...

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...

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...

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...
