AMD Radeon Pro W5700 7nm GPU takes on NVIDIA in workstations

AMD Radeon Pro W5700 7nm GPU takes on NVIDIA in workstations

AMD is anything but timid when it comes to its ambitions to conquer the computing market. Not satisfied with challenging CPU giant Intel, AMD acquired ATI to take on the GPU Goliath that is NVIDIA. After shaking up the CPU market with its Zen architecture, it is doing the same with its RDNA architecture and Navi GPUs with moderate success. It is now bringing that success from the consumer graphics card market to the pro industry with the new Radeon Pro W7500, daring to encroach on a market long dominated by NVIDIA.

Google Play Store needs more than AI to make app recommendations useful

Despite trying to paint an image of being a serious, enterprise-friendly corporation, Google is still pretty much the stereotypical geek among the tech giants. It just loves to solve its problems with machine learning and AI, which is understandable given the amount of data it has to wrestle with. But while there are things that can be efficiently solved with advanced machine learning, some things, like recommending apps for users to install and use from Google Play Store, need a bit of human touch.

Macy’s website hacked, customer credit card data stolen at checkout

When you boast to be the world's largest anything, you're practically issuing a challenge not just to competitors but also to criminal elements to try their luck in taking you down. When you are one of the US' largest department stores, you definitely have a large target on your back, tempting hackers to try and make a profit at your customers' expense.

Windows 10 version 1909 November 2019 is rolling out: brace yourselves

Windows 10 version 1909 November 2019 is rolling out: brace yourselves

Since Windows 10 first launched, Microsoft has adopted a release schedule that saw two major Windows updates per year along with rolling fixes and patches as they come. That proved to be rather problematic in terms of software quality and Microsoft stepped on the breaks just a bit to deliver more fixes and fewer features in this year's second and last Windows 10 release. That update has started to roll out to users and, given Microsoft's past history, it might also be a good time to backup your PC and make sure drivers are updated first.

Surface Pro 7 is extremely difficult to repair based on iFixit teardown

Microsoft unveiled quite a number of notable Surface devices last month but there is always an odd one out. The Surface Pro 7 seems to have gotten the short end of the stick this year, being seen as an almost forgettable upgrade. But more than just the meager step up in specs and features, the device is criticized for sporting an already very outdated design. It turns out, that's true inside as well.

Magic Leap One plays Spotify in AR where you left them in the world

After no small amount of delays and a bigger amount of controversy, the Magic Leap One finally leaped into existence last year to bring its own version of augmented reality to real reality. Since then, AR and even VR have somewhat taken a backseat in tech news but that's not to say they're dead.

At 49, however, he wants to be remembered for something else as well: making an impact in the field of Artificial Intelligence.
