  • AMD's new Threadripper Pro 5995WX is up to 40% faster than the current 3995WX. (Tom's Hardware)

    That's a huge jump in performance because these two CPUs have the same number of cores (64) and the same power consumption (280W).

    I would have expected these high-end chips to be limited by the power budget and/or heat and not a lot faster than existing models, but it looks like AMD has been busy the last few months.

  • The Gigabyte Radeon RX 6600 XT Eagle is a graphics card. (Tom's Hardware)

    It's one of the cheapest cards available from the current generation and it works, and it's avail... Well, I can't find it in stock in Australia, but it exists.

  • Google Play turned a profit of $8.5 billion in 2019 on $11.2 billion in revenue. (Thurrott.com)

    I assume that's net revenue - their 30% cut - and not gross payments. But I do have to wonder how you spend $2.7 billion to run a website.

  • I'm tempted to build my new PC in one of these. (Thermaltake)

    It supports two XL-ATX motherboards, dual power supplies, and at least 21 disk drives (I had to look at the parts list to figure that out).

    You can increase that to 31 with a couple of hot-swap SSD cages, but those cost extra. I could have Windows on one side and Linux on the other, and stuff it full of cheap disk drives in a RAID-Z3 config. Bigger and cheaper than any NAS, if you were going to buy a Linux box as well.
