This week, we have news on the Intel i9-12900KS that's prepping to fight the AMD R7 5800X3D. We also have a fair bit of news regarding the RTX 3090 Ti, and changes coming to the ATX specification as we get closer to PCIe 5.0 devices hitting the market.

We also have another entry in the growing modular laptop market, this time in the form of Prime Computer’s PrimeBook Circular. Elsewhere, we have some information on Intel's ATX12VO 2.0 and a new I_PSU% feature, some images of custom RTX 3090 Ti cooling solutions that weigh in at 3.5 and 4 slots, and more. 

As usual, find the news article and video embed below.

This week, we have some news regarding upcoming AMD CPUs, as AMD officially announced its new Threadripper Pro 5000 WX series, and we detail various rumors regarding several new Ryzen SKUs that could put the heat on Intel’s lower-end stack. We also have information about a new Universal Chiplet Interconnect Express (UCIe) that is being backed by big silicon players like AMD, Intel, and Arm, among others.

Elsewhere, we have Intel officially killing off AVX-512 support for Alder Lake-S, Intel preparing a new hardware feature for testing CPU cores, and fresh rumors surrounding Nvidia’s upcoming Ada GPUs that are set to succeed the current crop of Ampere GPUs at some point. 

As usual, find the news article and video embed below.   

News this week is busy as ever, as we’ve got news of EVGA’s upcoming RTX 3090 Ti Kingpin, which Vince “Kingpin” Lucido himself teased on his personal Facebook page. Elsewhere, we have Valve confirming the first shipment of Steam Deck handhelds for late February, a Crysis 4 confirmation, Intel warning users against overclocking its non-K CPUs, and more. As usual, find the news article and video embed with timestamps below.  

Hardware news this past week was busy. Following-up all the CES coverage we posted on the YouTube channel, we immediately landed on the RX 6500 XT launch, Intel making crypto miners, Ryzen 5000 getting X370 support, and more.

More interestingly maybe, AMD is working on "RAMP," an XMP alternative, for its Ryzen platforms. This follows up previous A-XMP and AMP solutions.

This week, we’re diving into a couple of product rumors from Intel and Nvidia just ahead of CES 2022. Intel, for its part, is rumored to be preparing a new KS SKU for its successful Alder Lake-S platform. Nvidia, meanwhile, is rumored to be carving out 4GB and 8GB SKUs for its long-awaited RTX 3050. As ever, take both of these with due salt, but these stories aren’t far fetched, and we won’t have to wait long to see how much truth there is to them. 

Elsewhere, Intel inadvertently offered us a glimpse into its roadmap via a rather revealing set of driver patch notes, and Sony is now selling colored faceplates to deal with the polarizing white color of the PS5 consoles. There’s also news regarding CD Projekt Red, a new design concept from Dell, and a $2,100 motherboard from MSI. 

As ever, find the news article and video embed below.
