    Will SME, SEV, and hw SHA be CPU game-changers?

    I guess AMD chose to put AVX-512 and such on the back burner in favor of this. A smart move? So, we have government that gets upset when e-mail isn't private and controlled for it and enterprise (business and government) that gets upset when its data isn't private and controlled. As for the...

    I have had enough with the insufficient stock cooler on my Intel 4790K CPU (mounted on asus Z97-AR mobo in a normal desktop tower case) and want something that is quieter. I had never wanted to get an aftermarket one before because i do not want to take the mobo out just to install a cooling...

    DMI 2.0 vs 3.0

    In my limited understand, DMI is the interconnect between the CPU and the southboard / PCH. 2GB/s in 2.0 vs 3.93 GB/s in 3.0. x4 links for both. These mapping perfectly to the link/channel speeds for PCI-E 2.0 and 3.0 respectively in an x4 configuration. Thus the CPU has a PCI-E 2.0x4 or 3.0x4...

    Build me a VR gaming PC

    PLEASE when you POST threads asking for input on system builds tell us... 1. What YOUR PC will be used for. That means what types of tasks you'll be performing. Used for VR to power an HTC Vive 2. What YOUR budget is. A price range is acceptable as long as it's not more than a 20% spread...

    My CPU actually gets cooler when under load and idles at 65C

    Like the title says, my CPU is getting colder when I subject it to a CPU-Z stress test. Problem: CPU idles at 65C, one time it idled itself up to 98C safety shutoff and BSOD. Under CPU-Z stress test load it drops to 55C. Core Temp and SpeedFan show vastly different temperatures (see SS)...
