Three vendors. Three architectures. Three approaches to GPU design. Join us as we dive into their semiconductor hearts and see how Ada Lovelace, Arc Alchemist, and RDNA 3 contrast and compare.
While chiplets have been in use for decades, today they are the hottest trend in processor tech and at the cutting edge of technology, with millions of people worldwide using them in desktop PCs, workstations, and servers.
PCI Express has been around for 20 years, and with no sign of it being replaced any time soon, we dive into the technology to see what makes it so special.
Let's see if you can spot the difference between a human writer and an AI. We asked GPT 4.0 various tech questions and put them side-to-side with our answers taken from TechSpot explainers.
Welcome to a most fundamental area of computer design: how numbers are represented in hardware! We know that modern computers use and are very efficient at using binary, but wasn't always the case.
With power limits of CPUs and graphics cards climbing ever higher, and news reports of chips hitting sky-high temperatures appearing almost weekly, it seems that now is as good a time as any to ask a simple question – just how hot is too hot for today's PC components?
In this explainer we support with data why testing CPU performance with a GPU bottleneck is a bad idea, so you can have a full understanding of our testing methods when reviewing CPUs.
Today, there are at least 1 million miners for Bitcoin alone. How is this all happening? What role is the miner playing? And how might this change the landscape of computing in the future?
Direct3D. OpenAL. Winsock. You've probably heard of these and you might have even used them before. We're talking about APIs – the golden fleece to programmers around the world. Join us as we explain just what an API is, and take a quick look at where and how they get used.
