This week is Stay Smart Online week in Australia. Protecting yourself online has never been more important so here are our simple steps to online safety. Whether you are an individual or a small business, these simple steps can provide strong protection from a range of online threats.

HardOCP have checked out the high-end desktop offerings from Intel and AMD. Intelís never truly had HEDT market competition, until now. I know many of you love benchmarks, and thatís great. There are tons of those out there comparing Threadripper and Skylake-X. Itís not a surprise that Intelís got an advantage due to having both IPC and clock speed advantages over AMD. However, AMDís Threadripper stacks up quite well and offers a lot for the money despite these disadvantages. A system depends heavily on its motherboard, chipset, and features. As is the case with Intelís X299, the processor and the chipset make the platform. With few CPU options per platform, the two are indivisible. As a result, we canít really talk about AMD X399 motherboards without talking about the AMD Ryzen Threadripper itself.

Intel meanwhile have delivered a new superconducting quantum test chip to their research partner QuTech. The delivery of this chip demonstrates the fast progress Intel and QuTech are making in researching and developing a working quantum computing system. It also underscores the importance of material science and semiconductor manufacturing in realizing the promise of quantum computing.

TechSpot compared 6 generations of GeForce graphics cards. With the venerable GeForce GTX 980 having celebrated its third birthday already, in the world of GPUs that puts it squarely over the hill. To further confirm that notion, its successor, the GeForce GTX 1080 is over a year old already and offers 60% more performance. The performance bump in this last generation was very significant and that is why the Pascal-based GTX 1080 remains the GPU to beat unless money is burning a hole in your pocket.
