Today is the last day to opt out of My Health Record. If you're not sure if you want to opt out or not, there's an article here on ABC with some background. Privacy experts are concerned about the system's security, yet health experts are urging Australians to join, saying a connected data system will save lives and reduce medical errors. After January 31, if you haven't chosen to opt out, a My Health Record will automatically be created for you. There's a big discussion thread here in the forums.

Intel have a new 28-core, unlocked Xeon processor. With the most cores and threads, CPU PCIe lanes, and memory capacity of any Intel desktop processor, the Intel Xeon W-3175X processor has the features that matter for massive mega-tasking projects such as film editing and 3D rendering.

TechSpot meanwhile caution people that mobile GeForce RTX GPUs may not be what you expect. Nvidia in revealing specifications for its laptop-bound RTX GPUs shared that base clock speeds for its RTX 2080 cards can vary from 735 MHz (on the Max-Q variant) to 1,380 MHz (for the standard RTX 2080 configuration). By comparison, the desktop RTX 2080 features a base clock of 1,515 MHz. Doing some quick math, thatís a more than 50 percent reduction in clock speed. Presumably, this will have a significant impact on gaming performance.
