One of the interesting elements to Intel’s unlocked 28-core Xeon W-3175 processor launch was that the motherboard options to support this processor were minimal. At present only ASUS and GIGABYTE have shown designs for it, and the GIGABYTE model is still a few months from production. As a result, most reviewers ended up with the ASUS ROG Dominus Extreme for the chip. At the time of the launch, the MSRP for this motherboard was not yet determined – ASUS had told us that the units they had shipped were only to OEMs at this point, and they were still looking into retail availability. Ultimately in our review, we guessed that the motherboard would be around $1500. It would appear that Newegg is now listing the motherboard at $1800.

If every letter has a special meaning for a feature in a product, and a product portfolio offers a mix and match of those features, then eventually a combination of letters will end up with a secondary meaning. Today we’re seeing the beginning of the Kentucky Fried version of Intel: in the latest changelog to AIDA64, a well-known utility for system identification and testing, the company behind the software has added in the hooks and details for the Core i9-9900KFC. This CPU is as-yet unannounced by Intel. Software houses like the one behind AIDA, as well as OEMs, have to design software (and hardware) in advance of future products, and so they need to know the specifications and details in advance as well. It just so happens that sometimes.

Western Digital has published a register-transfer level (RTL) design abstraction of its in-house designed SweRV RISC-V core . The SweRV core is one of several RISC-V projects the company as undertaken as part of their effort to spearhead the ISA, its ecosystem, and foster their own transition away from licensed, royalty-charging CPU cores. In accordance with the more open design goals of RISC-V, the publication of the high-level representation of SweTV means that third parties can use it in their own chip designs, which will popularize not only the particular core design, but also the RISC-V architecture in general.

Storage bridges are an important part of computing systems. Currently popular external bridges allow storage drives (hard drives or SSDs) to talk to computing systems over USB or Thunderbolt 3. While Thunderbolt 3 is a premium Intel-only interface for now, USB 3.1 Gen 2 has emerged as a credible mass-market high-performance alternative. We recently reviewed the MyDigitalSSD M2X M.2 NVMe SSD Enclosure that allows a PCIe NVMe SSD to be accessed over USB. Today, we will be looking at another product having the same functionality - the Plugable USBC-NVME. The key difference lies in the industrial design of the casing, allowing the M.2 SSD to be installed without the need for any tools. Its thermal characteristics are different. Read on for our

Starting last year , LG seems to have made a marketing strategy out of teasing features about their upcoming flagship devices. LG continues this strategy with today’s reveal of an interesting aspect about the upcoming LG G8 ThinQ, which we expect to be unveiled at MWC in Barcelona on February 24 th . For the G7, LG had teased the capabilities of the new generation LCD screen, revealing its brightness characteristics as well as its customisation options. While the screen was indeed very bright, it was rather handicapped by bad colour calibration as well as high base power consumption. The LG V40’s OLED screen showed great picture quality characteristics, however again suffered from even worse base power consumption issues, resulting in quite.

Intel has submitted a proposal to Irish authorities for the expansion of its manufacturing site near Leixlip. According to the plans, Intel is exploring the construction of a brand-new building – one larger than their previously proposal – which in particular strongly hints that the chipmaker would be installing EUV lithography equipment. Intel originally received permission to build its new fab on the west-side of its Leixlip campus back in 2017. However the company never began construction, as it did not have a strategic plan in place for boosting manufacturing capacities. Last year the company formally decided to significantly boost its manufacturing capacities by building new fabs in Oregon, Ireland, and Israel, as well as to furnish it.

Thunderbolt 3 has enabled a number of interesting use-cases that were simply not possible with earlier high-speed external interfaces. The technology allows for four lanes of PCIe 3.0 to become available over a USB Type-C interface, which can be further combined with power, DisplayPort video, and other forms of data. As a result, one of the most prominent use-cases for Thunderbolt 3 has been using it to attach an external GPU. DIY enthusiasts have previously tried this with Thunderbolt 2 enclosures, but, there was no official support from the vendors. This changed with Thunderbolt 3 and the creation of an official eGFX standard. These days, a number of eGFX enclosures are already available in the market. For today's review we're taking a lo.
