The USB port is about to get a whole lot faster—at least for upcoming devices. The USB Implementors Forum (USB-IF) has followed up its announcement of the USB4 Version 2.0 (USB4 v2) standard last month by making the new specifications available to product developers. In addition, Intel has announced the next... Read more...
Today, KIOXIA has announced a new series of datacenter solid state drives. The new XD7P drives follow the company’s XD6 series in using the EDSFF E1.S formfactor for use in cloud and hyperscale applications. The XD7P series is intended for read-intensive applications with low latency requirements across mixed... Read more...
Machine learning research is progressing at an ever-faster pace. We are likely still decades away from reaching the singularity, but AI has already become the buzzword that every tech company is throwing around. Countless AI models exist, but many rely on similar training techniques to develop and refine their... Read more...
Today’s Made by Google Launch event formally introduced the world to an array of new Pixel devices. Extensive information about the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro smartphones has already been shared, or otherwise leaked out, but some new tidbits were covered as well. In addition, the Made by Google team announced the Pixel... Read more...
Intel has its hands in many different areas of semiconductor innovation, design and production. The company is best known for its desktop and server processors, but has also developed new memory and storage solutions, FPGAs, its latest Arc GPUs, and much more. One of its more interesting forays is into the realm... Read more...
NVIDIA announced its new GeForce RTX 40-Series GPUs at its GTC Developer’s Conference two short weeks ago. We have been privy to a deep dive of the underlying Ada Lovelace architecture and have gleaned more details from AIB partners, but now we have a couple cards in hand to share with the camera. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Founder's Edition We Read more...
Intel Arc will be fully out in the open very soon. However you qualify it, we now know the cards will be available a week from now, on October 12th, though reviews will begin popping up tomorrow, 10/5/22. On the eve of this event, Intel’s Tom “TAP” Petersen and Ryan Shrout sat down with Raja Koduri, the Vice President... Read more...
The mouse and graphical user interface are still arguably two of the greatest innovations in computing. They make computers easy to use, but that does not always mean slinging a cursor around is the best use of time. The keyboard still reigns supreme for many Windows tasks, so it is worthwhile to learn how to use it... Read more...

If it isn’t backed up, it doesn’t exist—or so the adage goes. It is vital to have any files that are important to you backed up in at least a few ways. For a long while now, Google Photos has made backing up images to the cloud almost effortless which has made it a popular solution for many. Recently though, some... Read more...
Moore’s Law has been at the beating heart of technology advancement ever since it was first posited in 1965. Gordon Moore coined the golden rule which observes and predicts that the number of transistors in a microchip double roughly every two years. This is largely accomplished by making transistors ever smaller, but... Read more...
The tech industry has been abuzz with chatter about AV1 encoding recently. There are bold claims about how it will revolutionize streaming video, game streaming, and the Internet at large—but what is AV1 and why is it so important? Advantages Of The AV1 Codec AV1 is a (relatively) new video codec designed for video... Read more...
NVIDIA’s brand-new GeForce RTX 4090 GPU is wicked fast. So fast, in fact, that Blizzard feels the need to increase Overwatch 2’s rendering speed limit.
