Windows 10 support could end early on some Intel systems

  When Microsoft introduced Windows 10 and its "Windows as a Service" model, the company promised Windows users a steady stream of updates to their machines.

Intel Core i9-7900X review: The fastest chip, but expensive

  Intel's latest 10-core, high-end desktop (HEDT) chip—the Core i9-7900X—costs £900/$1000. That's £500/$500 less than its predecessor, the i7-6950X. In previous years, such cost-cutting would have been regarded as generous. You might, at a stretch, even call it good value. But that was at a time when Intel's monopoly on the CPU market was as [...]

Here’s hoping the iMac Pro learns from the Mac Pro’s mistakes

  The iMac Pro is what I imagine Darth Vader's iMac would look like. Andrew Cunningham Cool black accessories (you can't buy them separately, sorry to say). Andrew Cunningham Also imposing from the back. Andrew Cunningham Ports, glorious ports: you get a headphone jack, four USB 3.0 ports, four Thunderbolt 3 ports, and 10 gigabit [...]
