This week our grumpy hero discusses Intel's plans to release a series of PC's with 5G in H2 2019. He also discusses the 32 lawsuits that they face, and whether AMD should be innocent in the claims. They have also rolled out a series of Spectre Micro code updates for Skylake, Kaby Lake and Coffee Lake processors.
He also discusses the recent EKWB EK Supremacy EVO Threadripper block and how the company admitted the failure in public, but decided not to email their customer base who bought them – a ploy to keep down compensation costs? He also talks about the recent Core i9 8950HK leaks, Intel drones being hacked (yes, its an Intel heavy week for sure).
Anyone waiting with baited breath to see how Nvidia deliver with Turing? Oh yes, he also raises a few points about the recent Corsair H500S reviews that hit the net last week.
