Sometime earlier, during the middle of May 2021, researchers from Unisantis Electronics (which includes NAND Flash memory inventor Fujio Masuoka) revealed the new concept of Dynamic Flash Memory (DFM). It is officially introduced as a brand new volatile (power dependent) memory-based system, touted to be the ultimate replacement for current Dynamic Random-access Memory (DRAM) modules.
Intel’s Rocket Lake 11th Gen certainly did not capture the imagination of the DIY crowd even as it finally gets shipped and becomes widely available to consumers. Unlike Comet Lake 10th Gen, which eventually became the best bang-for-the-buck option at the moment, the horrible power consumption of Intel 11th Gen just showed how overstretched its […]

The current global chip shortage has unanimously been one of the biggest cause of despair and frustration for many PC builders in 2021. Having to fall in line with TSMC’s overloaded production lines means that GPU production never satiates demand, price skyrockets, and everyone, including AiB partners and distributors take a cut in order to […]
Performance and activity levels of your PC can vary wildly. These depend on the type of task that it does, the number, and the operational duration of running programs.

TDP, or thermal design power, is a term that is often thrown around by chip manufacturers as metric of performance efficiency over a perceived sustained energy dissipation value. Theoretically, this is absolutely correct. When considering chip designs, there is a considerable relation between power and performance. The higher the TDP, the more energy is required […]
