  • AMD Ryzen pricing leaks, to start at $317 - Ahead of the official launch early next month, US pricing for AMD Ryzen processors has been leaked early, courtesy of online retailer ShopBLT. All three SKUs will be 8-core processors with 16 threads. The flagship AMD Ryzen SKU will be the R7-1800X, with the manufacturing part number 'YD180XBCAEWOF'. The 8-core processor will be priced at $490.29, which is very promising as the chip is expected to be a beast of a performer. Unlike older flagship AMD processors, the R7-1800X will deliver high performance while being highly efficient at the same time. With a TDP of 'just' 95W, the processor is said to be capable of reaching 4.0 GHz out of the box. Its Intel rival, the Core i7 6900K, has a higher 140W TDP and is also a lot more expensive at over $1100. Positioned below the R7-1800X will be the R7-1700X. It too will be an 8-core chip with the same 95W TDP rating as the flagship R7-1800X. The retailer has listed the R7-1700X (YD170XBCAEWOF) at $381.72, which is fantastic value. The third SKU is the R7-1700 (YD1700BBAEBOX), which is an 8-core processor with a 65W TDP rating priced at $316.59.
  • AMD Zen Shrinks x86 Area and Power - Recently at the ISCC, International Solid-State Circuits Conference, it was revealed that the upcoming AMD Zen cores are more compact than Intel's current 14nm x86 core technology. Intel engineers and analysts agreed that the Zen core is clearly competitive, but there are other variables to account for. AMD's decision to use a metal-insulator-metal capacitor has led to a 15% reduction in switching capacitance. This gives Zen an edge with lower operating voltages, greater per-core voltage, and frequency control. Also of note is that there are two eight-core designs running at 3.4GHz with simultaneous multithreading enabled.
  • Intel to Invest $7Billion in Arizona Fab - Intel Corporation today announced plans to invest more than $7 billion to complete Fab 42, which is expected to be the most advanced semiconductor factory in the world. The high-volume factory is in Chandler, Ariz., and is targeted to use the 7 nanometer (nm) manufacturing process. It will produce microprocessors to power data centers and hundreds of millions of smart and connected devices worldwide. The announcement was made by U.S. President Donald Trump and Intel CEO Brian Krzanich at the White House.
  • EVGA iCX Technology - Adding Thermal Sensors and Improved Cooling - EVGA found themselves highly motivated by last years thermal issues that they encountered on many GeForce GTX 1070 and 1080 models. The enthusiast community was alleging that many EVGA branded GeForce GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 cards were exploding due to improper VRM cooling. Catastrophic failures on luxury high-end graphics cards is something that is taken very seriously by everyone and it was determined by EVGA that VRM (Voltage Regulator Modules) temperatures exceeding 110C during stress loading.
  • 11-Drive DRAMless SSD Round Up -  For most of us enthusiasts, we shouldn't even consider DRAMless SSDs with planar NAND. It's true that the drives are faster than a hard disk drive, but when you lean on them with a slightly elevated workload, they can stall, stutter, and deliver a worse user experience than you would get with a spinning mechanical disk.
  • The Patriot Hellfire M.2 480GB Review: Phison NVMe Tested - This is not representative of most real-world workloads and is not reason to disqualify the 960 EVO. In our lightest test of real-world I/O, even the 250GB 960 EVO outperforms the 480GB Patriot Hellfire. For all but the most intense workloads, Samsung's SLC caching will provide better real-world performance than the MLC+Phison combination. And the Samsung drive will draw less power and run cooler while outperforming the Patriot Hellfire.
  • NSA Adds Windows 10 and Surface to List for Classified Use - The company has announced that Windows 10 has been added to the list of NSA's Commercial Solutions for Classified Programs (CSfC). Similarly, the Surface Pro 3, Pro 4, and Book are the only hardware devices running Windows 10 that meet the "high security requirements". Microsoft also says that it has added another layer of hardware security for Surface devices called Surface Enterprise Management Mode (SEMM). This enhanced layer of security allows IT managers in organizations to take ownership, lock down, and modify hardware configurations, networking capabilities and application access within the device firmware. SEMM can be deployed on Surface Pro 4, Book, and Studio. Additionally, the company is also extending device management in Windows 10 by bringing more security settings to MDM solutions with the upcoming Creators Update. 
  • YouTube Live Streaming from Mobile Devices Coming Soon - YouTube has said users will soon be able to stream video live from their mobile phones. The video site already supports live streaming from PCs, and YouTube first promised to bring live streaming to phones last summer. The company has been testing live streaming with select content creators for months to tweak quality, controls, and social interactions when live. YouTube says the feature will first reach accounts that have 10,000 or more subscribers. The feature is simple to use, people need only begin capturing video directly through the YouTube app to go live. YouTube is also introducing Super Chat, a way for viewers and fans to make their comments stand out to content creators. Viewers will have to pay for this added visibility, allowing creators to earn some extra cash. Google says mobile live streaming will reach regular users over time.
  • Russian Police Arrest Lurk Malware Gang Suspects - Russian police just completed their second wave of arrests in a coordinated action to move on the Lurk malware gang, allegedly responsible for using a botnet to target corporate accounts at financial institutions and make off with 1.7 billion roubles (approximately $25 million). Reportedly of 50 previously arrested, 19 have already been jailed. Isn't it amazing how quickly the legal process can work without due process?
  • Google Drive Uses Hash Matching to Detect Pirated Content - Google seems to be okay with you stashing stolen content in your account, so long as you don't share it: "merely storing the file in a private Drive account doesn't raise any red flags." One of TorrentFreak's readers admitted that s/he was unable to share a link to a movie screener-hmm, sharing pirated content using a Google service...what could go wrong?
  • Google Launches Android Wear 2.0 - Google has officially made Android Wear 2.0 available to device makers and the public. The wearable platform has been in preview status since May 2016 and its release has been delayed for several months. Android Wear 2.0 includes a handful of key improvements over earlier versions of the operating system. First, Android Wear apps can now run directly on wearables without a nearby smartphone. Standalone apps will make Android-based wearables more useful on their own. This goes hand-in-hand with added support for LTE data connections built directly into the OS, allowing users to install watch apps directly to their wearable via WiFi or cellular connections. Android Wear 2.0 also adds the Google Play Store, where smartwatch owners will be able to browse for apps via keyword and voice search directly from their wrist. Other features include a circular user interface with swipe-to-dismiss behaviors, one-click Google sign-in, and improved complications. Watch faces, for example, will be able to show data from other apps, such as fitness info. The messaging app gains a significant update, too, thanks to better handwriting recognition, voice controls, and an on-device keyboard. Android Wear 2.0 also supports Apple's iOS so iPhone owners can use Android Wear watches. Last, Android Wear 2.0 brings the new Google Assistant to user's wrists, where people will be able to speak the "OK, Google" command to perform voice-based searches. Android Wear 2.0 will ship on the new LG Watch Sport and Watch Style, which were announced separately, beginning Feb. 10. Google says the platform will reach a number of existing supported devices in the weeks ahead. Some include the Asus ZenWatch 2 and 3; Casio Smart Outdoor and Pro Trek Smart; Fossil Q Found, Marshal, and Wander; Huawei Watch; LG G Watch R, Watch Urbane, Watch Urbane 2nd Ed; Moto 360 (2nd Gen and Sport); New Balance RunIQ; and the Tag Heuer Connected.
  • iPhone 8: Separate Wireless Charger, No Headphone Jack Adapter Included - In an unprecedented move, Apple has decided to give one of its upcoming iPhone models wireless charging capabilities - but be prepared to pay additional premiums, as the feature will only be available on the top model and require an additional accessory since the technology may not be built in. The company has also decided to stop including the Lightning to 3.5mm Headphone Jack Adapter, since nobody uses wired headsets anymore…
  • Microsoft Outlook for iOS Adds Support for Third-Party Apps  - Microsoft has updated its Outlook email application for iOS devices and gave the app the ability to support add-ins. Microsoft says add-ins let Outlook users do more with their email thanks to powers enabled by third-party applications. For example, adds-ins will negate the need to leave Outlook to perform certain tasks, such as translate text, insert GIFs, or save items for safekeeping. Some of the launch partners include Evernote, Giphy, Nimble, Trello, and Smartsheet. Microsoft says add-ins are only available when reading emails for now, but it plans to add support for add-ins to the email composing/replying screens before too long. Moreover, add-ins are being made available to Office 365 subscribers first, with Outlook.com users to follow. Add-ins will be added to Outlook for Android at a later date. Microsoft Outlook for iOS is free to download from the iTunes App Store.
  • Apple Makes New iOS and WatchOS Betas Available to Devs - Apple has made available a handful of new beta builds of its core operating systems. The new releases include iOS 10.3 beta 2, watchOS 3.2 beta 2, tvOS 10.2 beta 2, and Xcode 8.3 beta 2. The most notable new feature of iOS 10.3 is a tool called Find My AirPods, which helps people locate lost earbuds via an audio alert. iOS 10.3 also makes the jump to the Apple File System, refreshes the Apple ID profile, tweaks animations, and provides more details concerning iCloud storage use. WatchOS 3.2 includes two core additions to the platform: theater mode and SiriKit. Theater mode lets Watch owners disable sound and raise-to-wake functions while retaining haptic vibrations for notifications. SiriKit, available to iOS since last year, lets developers add Siri to their own watchOS apps. These new betas are meant for developers. Apple normally makes public beta builds available a day or two after it releases the developer betas.
  • LG Watch Sport Targets Fitness Buffs, Supports Android Pay - LG has announced the LG Watch Sport, which is among the first wearables to ship with Google's Android Wear 2.0 platform on board. The Watch Sport is a circular, fitness-focused smartwatch that can track workouts and health data, such as distance covered and heart rate. The P-OLED screen measures 1.38 inches across and boasts 480 by 480 pixels. The Watch Sport is powered by a 1.1 GHz Snapdragon 2100 processor with 768 MB of RAM and 4 GB of storage. It includes Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and GPS radios, as well as LTE for cellular connections. The watch is able to connect to LTE for calls, messaging, and downloading or accessing apps. The Watch Sport can be used in coordination with a smartphone, sharing the same number so users can always be reached, or on its own even when the associated smartphone is not turned on. Notably, the watch includes NFC and support for Android Pay, so it can be used for mobile payments. It packs a 430mAh battery. The LG Watch Sport costs $380. The LG Watch Style will be available at Best Buy and the Google Store, as well as from AT&T and Verizon Wireless starting on Feb. 10. It will be sold in Canada, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Taiwan, UAE, and the U.K. in the coming weeks.
  • MediaTek's Helio P25 Processor Takes Aim At Dual-Camera Phones  - MediaTek has announced the Helio P25, a mobile processor for smartphones that boosts imaging and video capabilities. The P25 relies on a 16nm FinFET process and includes eight ARM Cortex A53 cores clocked at 2.5 GHz. MediaTek says the P25 is 25% more power efficient than the P20. The P25 is paired with an ARM Mali-T880 GPU clocked at 900 MHz, and boasts MediaTek's Imagiq 12-bit, dual image signal processor (ISP) technology. MediaTek claims the P25 and dual ISP can handle 24-megapixel single cameras or dual 13-megapixel cameras set in a color/mono configuration. This is typically put to use for capturing depth-of-field data to help generate bokeh and other effects. Moreover, the processor and ISP combo can allow smartphones to capture HDR video. Other features of the Helio P25 include support for 64QAM LTE-TDD for faster uploads and LPDDR4x RAM modules up to 6 GB for less-power-hungry multitasking. MediaTek expects the Helio P25 to ship in devices during the first quarter of the year.
  • Sony's Latest Camera Sensor Captures 1000fps Super Slow-Mo - Sony has announced a new camera sensor for smartphones that will make it possible top capture incredible slow-motion video. The dual-layer CMOS sensor includes 1 GB of DRAM, which Sony says allows the sensor to capture and read images much faster. Sony claims the sensor can read 19.3-megapixel images in 1/120 of a second, which is four times faster than most of today's sensors. This has two effects. First, the sensor can snag fast-moving subjects without introducing focal plane distortion, and second, the sensor can boost video capture speeds by a factor of eight. Many of today's smartphones capture slow-motion video at 120 frames per second. Sony's new sensor can capture distortion-free, full HD slow-motion at 1000 frames per second, which will greatly expand what filmmakers can do creatively. The sensor itself captures images up to 21.2 megapixels and 4K video. Sony didn't say when the sensor might be ready for production.
  • Samsung's Battery Blowup Makes Me More Likely to Buy the Next Note - Samsung now has a head start on safety standards that might have prevented this sort of battery blowup before it even started. With the pressure on to cram ever-larger batteries into ever-smaller compartments and no satisfactory standard for safety, you could even argue that battery explosions were inevitable. But Samsung got there first. Samsung will be the first to successfully pick up the pieces. I know Samsung has no choice but to do it right away. It could be a classic case of 'what doesn't kill you makes you stronger': Even though the company may lose $5 billion cleaning up the Note 7 mess, profits are actually up.
  • 'Instant Tethering' Makes Your Pixel A Hands-Free Hotspot - Google has added a feature to its Pixel and Nexus handsets that it hopes will help ease the process of using phones as mobile hotspots. Instant Tethering, as the feature is called, works because both the phone and secondary device (like a tablet) rely on the same Google account and can talk to one another via Bluetooth. "When you unlock a tablet such as the Pixel C, it will notice if there is no internet connection available, and will ask your Pixel phone if it has internet and battery life," explained Pixel Project Manager Omri Amarilio in a blog post. "If it does, we will give you an option to enable a secure hotspot and pair automagically, without even taking your phone out of your pocket." Once you stop using the tablet and lock the screen, Instant Tethering is smart enough to realize the hotspot is no longer needed and will turn it off on the phone in order to save battery life. Instant Tethering is limited to Google devices and works with the Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus 5X, and Nexus 6P smartphones and the Nexus 9 and Pixel C tablets.

  • Action...Avengers: Infinity War - Avengers: Infinity War is the culmination of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe as started in May of 2008 with the release of Iron Man 1, and it really is an unprecedented culmination of a series of films interlinked together, which at the time had never been done before. And for us the important thing is making it all come together. We know they're gonna face Thanos; we've been setting that up since Avengers 1. How do you do that in a way that is unexpected, that pits the Avengers against somebody who is more powerful than anyone they've faced, and yet make them completely unprepared to face them? Well, tear them apart, which is why we did Civil War before Infinity War… Thanos shows us why he's the biggest, the best, the baddest villain that we've ever had, and the most frightening villain that the Avengers have ever faced.

The impressive part is that Gaga did all that and didn't lipsync. Serious dance moves and athletic stuff and she still sang near perfect.

lorcro2000> The impressive part is that Gaga did all that and didn't lipsync. Serious dance moves and athletic stuff and she still sang near perfect.
Yep, impressive performance, entertaining, good show.
She started out as a dancer though so she has an advantage - she's in better shape than most singers - look at Mariah Carey's performance, lol
The only thing that bothered me was: too much makeup.

AMD Ryzen pricing leaks, to start at $317

Looks like a great deal. Let's see some real-world reviews.
You know, you pay a lot more for electricity than the CPU over the years, so AMD's 95W looks great vs. Intel's 140W: Intel heats your room with 45W more while your CPU is at 100%.
I wonder how much heat each of these CPUs dissipate at, say, 15-25% utilization (which you have most of the time - probably).
317 vs. 1100 is a huge gap. You can buy plenty of hardware from ~780 dollars...

gx-x(01:09 PM EST - Feb,13 2017 )
45W can't heat more than 45W can heat... o.O Also, a 1000$ intel CPU is easily beaten by a 200$ intel CPU, so I don't take pricing made for the rich "enthusiasts" very seriously. Same goes for AMD. Lazy people (or people that don't have the "know how") get 9xxx series of CPUs instead of getting the cheapest counterpart and overcloking it themselves and saving 200$ in the process.

Csimbi(07:16 AM EST - Feb,16 2017 )
I thought the TDP is the actual heat that the processor may dissipate under full load.
Since all of that is heat (and not "electricity to be converted to heat"), all of it needs to be dissipated, meaning that the 45W extra is 45W of heat.
