AMD has made a lot of money from the cryptocurrency mining boom and now that boom is coming to an end. AMD noted that 6% the Q2 revenue was due to cryptocurrency but that will not be the case next quarter as mining is not profitable anymore. We can expect the revenue from cryptocurrency to drop to almost zero. The Red team has been doing pretty well and has performed better than analysts predicted. AMD stock price has been increasing since it revealed its financials for Q2 2018. AMD CEO Lisa Su talked about the revenue from blockchain and the following is what she had to say in this regard: For Q2, we were approximately 6% of revenue for blockchain. For Q3, we’re planning very little blockchain. The drop in blockchain revenue is significant but the company was able to make up for it with Ryzen sales. While upcoming revenues from crypto are expected to drop AMD will be able to make up for it as there are upcoming CPUs that have yet to be announced. The AMD B450 motherboards have … [Read more...] about AMD Crypto Revenue To Drop Next Quarter, How Will It Make Up For It?

They are not only functional but they look good as well. You can check out the new Wraith Riper cooler that AMD is bringing to the table in collaboration with Cooler Master. PreviousNext Intel Xeon Scalable CPU coolers have the same old industrial design that we expect from Intel and you get the same black fan with the Blue Intel sticker on top, which is just ugly. Other than that, even … [Read more...] about Intel Xeon Scalable CPU Coolers Are Just Plain Ugly
To celebrate the 35th anniversary of the NES’s launch in Japan (as the Family Computer), I’m counting down the 35 greatest games to appear on NES in the U.S. You can find the first part (from 35-16) here. Now, on to the top 15 … 15. Tecmo Super Bowl (Tecmo, 1991) Football games have changed a lot over the years, drifting toward the full-season career management model of Madden NFL with the occasional unlicensed hyperactive arcade-style experience. There actually are other approaches, though! And right around the time the original Madden was making its mark, Tecmo created a gem of an alternative. Tecmo Super Bowl, the sequel to the beloved Tecmo Bowl, embodies the best of the old-school 8-bit football style. It plays less like a coaching sim than modern football games, yet it nevertheless avoids being an all-out action title, too. By walking the line between the genre’s two extremes, Super Bowl continued Tecmo’s trend of producing top-flight sports games … [Read more...] about The 35 greatest NES games, part 2
