Silicon Lottery Reveals AMD Ryzen 3000 Binning Stats

From Tom's Hardware: Silicon Lottery not only sells binned processors, but it's also a great source of information for binning statistics. The company has recently added the stats for AMD's Ryzen 3000-series processors to its database.

The AVX2 frequency is the highest stable all-core speed the processor is able to achieve under AVX2 workloads. Silicon Lottery emphasizes that the AVX2 workloads are comparable to ones from Intel LINPACK and Prime95 version 28.9 and later. Unfortunately, the company didn't mention the sample size for each Matisse chip.

Instagram is hiding likes. You may be happier in the end

From CNET: Lyndi Cohen's Instagram photos illustrate the power of healthy living. The Australian nutritionist features meals she's prepared for the week and moves gracefully through yoga poses. She also shares side-by-side bikini shots to show how glamorous photos on the social network diverge from real life.

AT&T and T-Mobile team up to fight scam robocalls

From TechCrunch: Two major U.S. carriers, AT&T and T-Mobile, announced this morning a plan to team up to protect their respective customer bases from the scourge of scam robocalls. The two companies will today begin to roll out new cross-network call authentication technology based on the STIR/SHAKEN standards — a sort of universal caller ID system designed to stop illegal caller ID spoofing.

Robocalls have become a national epidemic. In 2018, U.S. mobile users received nearly 48 million robocalls — or more than 150 calls per adult, the carriers noted.

Cooler Master MS110 Review (Page 1 of 4)

As I have mentioned in the previous Cooler Master review I wrote, the MH751, I was able to test drive a Jeep Wrangler and it felt very strange. Prior to that moment, the tallest car I had driven was probably a tie between a Nissan Rogue and a Ford Windstar. From the outset, climbing into the Wrangler was quite the ordeal. Worse yet, the difference of driving the Wrangler compared to everything else I had tried was very noticeable. While the Ford Windstar I had driven was jello-like in its responsiveness and the Nissan Rogue felt more like a taller car, the Jeep Wrangler was a different beast. Even when driving on a straight road, I felt like I had to continually adjust the steering for the car. My colleague Jonathan told me this was because it was a truck chassis, or a body-on-frame design, where the body would sit on top of the chassis. To me, the steering felt disconnected or delayed compared to the movement, but Jonathan assured me this was as expected and something to get used to. When Cooler Master sent us a new keyboard and mouse combination in the MS110, I had to ask if this was a solid package. While I have not used a membrane keyboard at home in quite a while now, the MS110's keyboard claims to be great for such. Similarly, the mouse is said to have a gaming-grade sensor. Is this package the real deal worth getting used to, or are there deficiencies in this set? I guess we will find out as we continue on, so let us proceed!
