    [quote<]IBM AI wins debate against human champion @ New Atlas[/quote<] It sounds like this is kind of like a particularly fancy search engine? It sounds like the AI is providing a summary of the best available thinking on a subject, not actually thinking itself. I suspect that if this AI were released on the actual Internet, instead of drawing on the info in the curated database IBM assembled for it, the result would be something like this: [url<][/url<]

    If you want a lot of gorgeous desktop space and don’t care too much about gaming, one of LG’s 34″ 1440P 21:9 monitors is up on Newegg for $500. I had a predecessor to this model, and LG really knows how to make vibrant, defect-free panels. Just don’t expect a lot of gaming fluidity out of the response times or limited FreeSync range.

    [quote<]NVMe SSD storage performance: Intel Z370 vs. AMD X470 @ TechSpot[/quote<] That's actually a pretty unexpected eye-opener. I'll quote the conclusion and recommend reading it: [quote<]Using what is now a fairly typical high-performance NVMe SSD it’s possible to reduce read performance by as much as 50% on an AM4 motherboard if you install it in the wrong M.2 slot. For the most part throughput will be reduced by at least 10%, and quite often a 20% reduction will be seen.[/quote<] TL;DR: If you want high performance from NVMe on your AM4 motherboard, double-check that it's going to the CPU and not the chipset.

      I haven’t kept an eye on motherboard reviews since I’m not in the market for one right now, but how common are dual M.2 slots on X470 motherboards anyhow? I know they were pretty rare, at least at launch, on X370 motherboards.

      • LocalCitizen

      the manuals state quite clearly that secondary M.2 are PCIe 2.0 x4 , not PCIe 3.0 x4. so the limit on NVMe speed is expected.

      now if you use one of those cheap NVMe x2 SSDs, you are pretty much back to SATA speeds on those M.2 slots

        Well. For sequentials, perhaps. Your random performance is still going to be far better due to the superior NVMe protocol, of course, heh.
