    Intel 10th Gen Comet Lake CPU @ 5.3GHz

    Shouldn't portable heaters come out in the fall, not the spring?

    Intel to introduce new ATX12VO PSU spec

    Yubico Yubikey - increasing your authentication for services

    TDP is, unfortunately, a load of baloney. Intel's seem more honest but considerably more useless; their TDPs are basically what the cooling solution needs to dissipate for the chip to only hit the base clock. AMD's TDPs are supposedly what the cooling solution needs to dissipate for the...
