If you were one of the many who lashed out on a GTX 1080 Ti, you might be annoyed to see it trumped by the new Titan Xp. Wait, can we still say "trumped"? Hrm. Not content to let the original Titan X Pascal languish after the launch of the GTX 1080 Ti, Nvidia has fully unleashed the GP102 GPU under the hood of that card and upgraded the Xp with 12GB of 11.4 GT/s GDDR5X memory. More on Kotaku and HotHardware.

Back before web forums, we old nerds hung out on Bulletin Board Systems - and ArsTechnica have resurrected one. Today, many can be forgiven for thinking that the digital communications revolution kicked off during the mid-1990s, when there was simply an explosion of media and consumer interest in the World Wide Web. Just a decade earlier, however, the future was now for the hundreds of thousands of users already using home computers to communicate with others over the telephone network. The online culture of the 1980s was defined by the pervasiveness of bulletin board systems (BBS), expensive telephone bills, and the dulcet tones of a 1200 baud connection (or 2400, if you were very lucky).

FunkyKit had a fun time at Maker Faire HK 2017, with day 1 and day 2 coverage.

TechSpot wonder if Ryzen performs better with AMD GPUs. Since our initial review we've been looking at Ryzen from a few different angles. But there's a rumor going around that Ryzen's gaming performance is better than we think... if you use a Radeon GPU. Curious to see if there is any truth to the story, we put together a test designed to eliminate GPU bottlenecks and see what happens.

LegitReviews meanwhile checked out the balanced power plan for Ryzen systems. Earlier this morning we were surprised with an e-mail from AMD offering a preview of a new Ryzen Balanced power plan for Windows that is said to improve performance on Ryzen processors. We pushed some of the things we were working on today off the agenda and started testing the new Ryzen Power Plan to see what performance gains were to be had.
