Intel and AMD have been locked in combat ever since Ryzen 7 debuted and put AMD back in the CPU race for the first time in six years. Both companies are prepping to release higher core count processors, but Intel is playing this game fairly conservatively, if recent rumors can be believed. According to VideoCardz leaked presentation, Intel’s upcoming Core i9-7920X will be a 12-core / 24-thread CPU with 16.5MB of cache.

Upcoming Nvidia Driver Will Enable Netflix 4K Streaming, Sort Of

Over the past year, it’s often seemed as if Microsoft and Netflix have done everything they could possibly do to prevent 4K streaming on PCs. While 4K started rolling out on Netflix several years ago, only a handful of smart TVs were supported. The situation has only improved slightly since then. Technically, you can watch 4K Netflix from a PC now, but only if you run Windows 10, use Microsoft Edge, and have a seventh generation Intel Kaby Lake CPU. An upcoming Nvidia driver is going to change that situation ...

Upcoming NASA probe will fly into the sun’s corona

The sun is a giant nuclear fireball that, as a rule, melts anything that comes close. Yet, there’s a NASA plan to send a spacecraft into the sun’s upper atmosphere to get a closer look at it and gather data on coronal mass ejections (CME). The spacecraft is called Solar Probe Plus (SPP), and it’s being designed and built by the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. If all goes as planned, it’ll launch in 2018.
