Intel are still without a CEO, more than 6 months after Brian Krzanich resigned. Chairman Andy Bryant told some employees recently that the chipmaker may go with a "non-traditional" candidate, suggesting a CEO from outside the company is a possibility. Whoever is chosen will take the reins at a company thatís churning out record results, but is facing rising competition. The new CEO will have to convince investors that Intelís loss of manufacturing leadership -- a cornerstone of its dominance -- wonít cost it market share in the lucrative semiconductor market.
HardOCP meanwhile have an interview with AMD about their new Radeon VII GPU. Scott Herkelman is Vice President and General Manager of the Radeon Gaming Business Unit at AMD. Scott goes way back in the GPU industry and has worked for VisionTek, BFG Tech, and NVIDIA over the last 18 years. He is also an actual gamer, as I can recall playing Quake deathmatch with him at a few LAN parties. He is now one of the people that is spearheading Radeon products and we had a few questions for him at CES 2019.
BabelTechReviews have an overclocking showdown between the RTX 2060, the Red Devil RX Vega 56 & the GTX 1070 Ti. At stock, the RTX 2060 FE won the majority of the 39 games we tested over the Red Devil RX Vega 56, and it also beat the GTX 1070 Ti. This time, we will overclock all three cards manually each as far as they will go to see where they stand in relation to each other when fully overclocked.
The NSW state government has decreed that all local council meetings must be webcast. The great webcasting decree comes by way of a Model Code of Meeting Practice now being developed by the state to make council proceedings in the 128 local government areas more uniform and open to members of the public - without the public having to rock up at chambers. The big bet is that Town Hall TV will prove such a reality genre hit with the community that people will tune in by the thousand and collectively shame councillors into good behaviour. At least that's the theory.
