We were hoping to have Intel’s 10th gen HEDT CPUs in this issue, but unfortunately our samples arrived ever so slightly too late to do a proper job of testing, so we’ll have that covered in the next issue. If you’re considering an upgrade to one of these, you’ll also be needing an X299 motherboard – so that’s something we were able to get into this issue. The main motherboard companies are all refreshing their X299 boards for Intel’s 10th gen release and we have a sampling for you to enjoy and consider. “This beast has been rigorously tested and binned by Intel and it’s the best quality silicon the company is able to produce” It’s not all about 10th-gen. After hyping it up at Computex back in June this year, the…

inside apc

APC is Australia’s oldest consumer technology magazine – having been consistently in print for over 35 years, since our first issue way back in May 1980 – and we take that heritage and responsibility very seriously. While our focus is obviously on the personal computer – it’s in our name, after all – the very definition of the PC has changed and shifted markedly since the early 1980s. As such, we touch on many other areas of tech, too, from smartphones and apps to peripherals, accessories, online services and beyond. We have two main goals: to track down the best of modern tech and also to help our readers make the most of it. We’re also an open church in terms of platforms. We know most people aren’t wed to a…

amd launches top-end 16-core ryzen 9 3950x and new threadrippers

AMD is set to close out the year on a high note. As promised, the company will be delivering its latest 16-core Ryzen 9 3950X processor, built with two 7nm TSMC chiplets, to the consumer platform for US$749. Not only this, but AMD has lifted the covers on its next generation Threadripper platform, which includes Zen 2-based chiplets, a new socket, and an astounding 4x increase in CPU-to-chipset bandwidth. The announcement revolves around several parts, in completely different markets: Ryzen 9 3950X, TR 3960X and TR 3970X, new TR40 motherboards, and the budget Athlon 3000G. One key takeaway from the announcements is how AMD is moving the traditional desktop and high-end desktop markets. When CEO Dr. Lisa Su was asked earlier this year what will happen to Threadripper as the mainstream Ryzen…

whatsapp co-founder still thinks we should delete facebook

While it has been almost two years since news of the Cambridge Analytica scandal first broke, WhatsApp co-founder Brian Acton still thinks that users should delete Facebook. At Wired’s 25th anniversary summit, Acton told a crowd that others should make their own decisions about leaving the social network though he stands by his decision to leave, saying: “If you want to be on Facebook and you want to have ads thrust in front of you, go to town.” Acton’s fight against Facebook began in March of 2018 when he took to Twitter to tell others “It is time” followed by the hashtag #deletefacebook. When he tweeted that message, Acton had been away from Facebook for more than a year after he stepped down in 2017 over a disagreement regarding monetizing…
