Today you can save over $300 on a gaming desktop from Dell that comes equipped with an Intel Core i7 processor and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card. Dell’s new XPS 8940 SE features an updated design and it comes loaded with powerful processing hardware that’s able to tackle just about any task you throw at it.

Once upon a time (specifically, the early 2000s), certain manufacturers and OEMs were so terrified of what Intel might do to them if they sold AMD products, they went to ridiculous lengths to hide the fact that they did so. Motherboard manufacturers shipped boards without their own logos, in unadorned white boxes. System vendors would format their product lists for 1024×768 at a time when 800×600 was the norm. Set the page to 800×600, and the AMD products would either be shoved below and require scrolling to see, or even shoved to the side, where you wouldn’t notice them at all if you didn’t see the horizontal scroll bar.
Nvidia’s first attempt to block cryptocurrency mining didn’t go well. While the company initially promised a cryptocurrency mining blocker would debut with the RTX 3060, it accidentally released a driver that allowed mining on the card a few days later. HDMI dongles also reportedly proved capable of bypassing the limiter. The plan didn’t work and RTX 3060 GPUs remain hot commodities in the cryptocurrency market. There are reports that Nvidia might be preparing to try again, and that it might re-issue new spins of higher-end Ampere GPUs as well. That’s the word from HKEPC Tom’s Hardware, which reports a new GA-106-302 die spin will replace the current GA-106-300 die powering the GeForce RTX 3060.

Microsoft is rolling out a new beta version of Windows 10 that includes automatic app restarts, new fonts, and the apparent death of Windows Timeline. Really, Microsoft just tossed that in with the “Changes and Improvements” for Insider Preview Build 21359. The company had to circle back just hours after posting the changelog to explain what it’s doing with Timeline. While it’s not completely removing the feature, it’s about to become much less useful. Microsoft added the Timeline view to Windows 10 as part of the April 2018 update, allowing you to sync your activity like file access and web pages across your devices.

You’ve probably heard of , the darkest color black in the world that can absorb 99.9 percent of light. Now, researchers from Purdue University have created , which can reflect almost as much light. Aside from being a neat technical feat, the team believes the new white paint could help address climate change by saving loads of power. Purdue engineers didn’t come out of nowhere with the whitest white ever — they announced a record-setting white color in October of last year, too. That one reflected a paltry 95.5 percent of light, but the new formulation ups that to 98.1 percent.
Sony recently announced it would shut down the online stores for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable, and PlayStation Vita. Gamers with these platforms will still be able to download old titles they previously purchased, but they can’t buy new ones. This news has kicked off a higher-profile discussion of a long-term problem for game preservationists and anyone who likes playing retro titles on original hardware. Consoles such as the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 have an internal CMOS battery to keep the system time. When the battery dies, it trips a switch inside the console that requires the system to connect to the PlayStation Network and confirm the time.
