If you have an older iPhone, you can apparently overclock it by moving to France, or at least changing the location settings. According to a recent report out of China, as long as you change the location to France, the performance of its phones will become faster and smoother. The reason for the smoothness is that Apple has been fined by France for the frequency reduction incident. This means that the company can not temper the performance of old iPhones in the country. Worth a try, anyway.

HotHardware looked at how to upgrade your PS5 with an SSD. Sony's PlayStation 5 launched in November of 2020 somewhat incomplete. While the hardware had an M.2 slot to expand the internal storage needed by PS5 games, the software didn't know what to do with it out of the box. Earlier this year though, Sony opened up a beta program with early access to firmware that can use that slot, and we managed to get in.

TechSpot meanwhile listed their best CPU coolers for 2021. Another reason to use water cooling is if you have a slim case that doesn't have the space for a larger air cooler, or even for a fan near the CPU. On the other hand, a pump is much harder to replace than a fan if it breaks, and while rare, the possibility of leaks within an electronic device can be scary. Regardless of which type of cooler you need, this guide will cover many great options at every size and price point.

TechSpot also considered what L3 cache config makes for a fast quad-core gaming CPU. Coming away from that testing, many of you wanted to know how much difference the L3 cache capacity makes with just 4 cores active, wondering if the margins would be even greater. So we’ve gone back and retested a 4-core, 8-thread configuration while adding three more games to the list along with a fourth processor, the 4C/8T Core i3-10105F.

There's been quite a bit of chatter recently about manufacturers silently changing SSD specs, with WD notably saying they will change their behaviour in future. Drive makers have gotten into the unfortunate habit of swapping out key components that can potentially affect the performance of any particular solid state drive model, which introduces a sort of luck-of-the-draw factor for the buyer. Western Digital recently did this with its value-oriented Blue SN550 NVMe SSD. After catching some heat, WD has promised to update the drive model whenever it does something similar in the future. Samsung seem to have changed a controller under similar cirumstances. For more info, check out this thread with some other examples. ExtremeTech refer back to the IBM DeathStar HDDs as an example of how easy it is to lose consumer trust.

Some news catchup..

This year marks 30 years since Linux was created. It's hard to over-state the effect that Linus's original work and the ongoing subsequent community effort has had on the history of computing. Also I liked this nugget: Torvalds announced in 1996 that there would be a mascot for Linux, a penguin. This was because when they were about to select the mascot, Torvalds mentioned he was bitten by a little penguin (Eudyptula minor) on a visit to the National Zoo & Aquarium in Canberra, Australia. Personally I remember buying an InfoMagic 3CD set in around 1994 which got my Linux journey underway. Anyway, there's some logos celebrating the birthday on the LinuxFoundation website.

There was some chatter recently about a 3dfx resurrection, but it seems to have been some kind of prank. So it was intriguing when the Twitter handle @3dfxofficial popped up out of nowhere, claiming to be back in some form and teasing "many exciting announcements" scheduled for today. And staying in character, the Twitter account posed eight presentation slides this morning to explain why it is returning, what products it plans to release, and other nonsense. If you do want some "modern" 3dfx goodness, check out this thread in our Retro & Arcade Forum.

Also on the retro side is this article about using an Amiga 4000 in 2021. Friends, acquaintances and random people often ask me, “What is the greatest computer range of all time and why is it the Commodore Amiga?”. Of course I don’t wait for them to ask me. I just shout out reasons why the Amiga is the best from across the street. Some might say Amiga owners are the original computing fan-boys. I think that’d be insulting to Commodore 64 owners. Still, there’s something about the Amiga that resonates with me in ways modern computing doesn’t. Which reminds me of this Amiga a500 Mini I posted about in the Forums recently.

HotHardware report from Intel Architecture Day. Intel held its annual Architecture Day earlier this week, and it’s safe to say that members of the press and analyst communities were waiting with baited breath for the deep dive disclosures on the company’s next-gen silicon architectures and products that are typically unveiled at the event. This year, Intel gave us a densely-packed view of what it has in store for PC consumers, the enterprise and data centers. From Alder Lake to Intel Arc, Sapphire Rapids, Ponte Vecchio and more, Intel laid down the gauntlet in fair detail on a number of fronts Guru3D have info on Alder Lake and Xe GPUs too.

The ACCC are taking Telstra, Optus and TPG to court, accusing them of charging customers for download speeds they could not provide. The ACCC alleges the companies told customers on FTTN connections they would test the speeds, notify customers if the maximum speed was not met, and offer remedies, but then failed to do so for many of those customers. The regulator has also alleged the three companies wrongly accepted payments for people on higher-speed plans when they could not achieve those speeds.

In the meantime.. Starlink is targeting coverage in your area in mid to late 2021. Soo, any day now? Or, maybe NBN Co will upgrade me to FTTP, as one of the "up to 10,000" of the 1.1 million premises they have said would be potentially eligible. Wait, what? “By calendar year end, the company plans to initiate a small volume launch of FTTN to FTTP upgrades, making up to 10,000 premises eligible to access to NBN Home Fast [100Mbps] and other higher speed services on demand, before scaling the program throughout 2022 and 2023.” In the meantime I barely have speeds above the ADSL I moved onto from dialup about 15 years ago.

This month's Retro Racing is F1 Racing Championship from 2000. Wait, 2000 isn't retro! That's only.. (counts on fingers) oh. Right. Anyway: F1 Racing Championship contains several playable game modes: Single, Arcade, Grand Prix (training, qualifications and warm-ups) and Time Attack. Overall, the game features 22 drivers from 11 teams, and 16 tracks used in the 1999 Formula One World Championship. The multiplayer relies on local area network integration, supporting 22 players to compete simultaneously. A two player split screen mode is also included.

Meanwhile the Retro Let's Play game is Stubbs The Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse from 2005. Stubbs wakes up as a zombie in the middle of Punchbowl, a newly built city in the 50s that has big clunky robots, laser guns, and hover cars. Being a newly animated zombie in this metropolis, most of your time is spent doing zombie things, like eating brains and attacking humans. Stubbs is no ordinary zombie; he has special abilities that he can use after eating enough brains. He tosses his head like a bowling ball and blows up enemies, making them zombies. He can rip his arm off, and you can control the arm like a remote control car. How have I never heard of this game before?

Telstra have announced that all public payphones will be free - assuming you can still find one! Starting Tuesday, Telstra’s bold move, which is expected to lose more than $ 5 million in revenue, will be free from just asking for help from one of Australia’s 15,076 payphones or calling a friend. increase. As part of the telephone payphone overhaul, both local and domestic calls are free, and calls to Australian mobile numbers are unlimited except for the 6-hour call limit. However, consumers still have to pay to make a call abroad. Dicussion here.

An Australian court has ruled that an AI can be a patent inventor. On Friday, the Federal Court ruled in favour of Dr Stephen Thaler, a US-based developer of Device for the Autonomous Bootstrapping of Unified Sentience (DABUS) in his case against the Australian Commissioner of Patents. The Commissioner had rejected Dr Thaler’s claim that his computer program is capable of independent invention and that it has devised several new inventions. But in the first judicial determination in the world of its type, Australian Federal Court Justice Jonathan Beach determined that an AI system can be named as the inventor of a patent.

OCInside have a DIY Nickel Plating Guide. This is how to nickel plate. Nickel-plated surfaces are frequently encountered in everyday life. Furniture fittings, tools and even CPU coolers are often coated with a thin layer of nickel. It protects objects from corrosion and makes them resistant to environmental influences. In the computer area, high-performance CPU coolers are often nickel-plated, as bare copper would otherwise oxidize quickly. In the following nickel plating tutorial on OCinside.de we nickel plate a coldplate and test the nickel plated AIO with liquid metal! Make sure you do your homework on the chemical safety side of things, though!

DIY keyboards are still popular, and OCClub have a guide to lubricating the switches. When I started with custom mechanical keyboards nearly a year ago now, I gave myself the goal of covering it within reasonable extremes. It can be described as a constructive hobby and, like many hobbies, can get very extreme if you decide to take it that far, with examples such as hand wired builds and so-called franken-switches, assembled from the parts of other switches. Lubricating switches I could see being described by some as extreme as it involves disassembling each switch, but it is more approachable than the examples I just gave, and so I have wanted to do it.

TechSpot looked back at 27 years of Need For Speed games. Today, we’ll fasten our seat belts for a quick drive down memory lane and take a look at all the mainstream Need for Speed games – PC & console – from the 1994’s original to Need for Speed Heat released in 2019. A new titles is also in development slated for 2022 as of writing.

I've been following Revenger's Astro City retro arcade project for a while - if you're working on something similar, you might be interested in these retro replica Sega Virtual Fight Stick Pro panels that he's organising. In partnership with San Star Game and thanks to FrancoB from Arcade Otaku, we are releasing a 2L16B panel (2 Player 16 buttons) with or without artwork one can buy. This layout is used by all modern fighting games especially console ones. The panel with artwork included (comes not attached) can now be ordered, you can just order 1 and we need a minimum of 50 total orders in order for them to be produced.
