To those of us who were dreaming big when Intel teased a photo of a massive discrete GPU on Twitter, it is time for a reality check—what we saw is not going into a consumer graphics card, no matter how enticing the proposition might seem (from a raw performance standpoint). Intel's graphics boss Raja Koduri, who had... Read more...
Lots of folks are working from home these days, and that means endless WebEx, Zoom, Skype, or other online meeting sessions. When you're not optimally equipped to work from home, especially if you don't have a dedicated workspace, that can be a bit of a mess with lots of background noise happening while you're in a...
