Some AM4 motherboards may offer multiple M.2 slots supporting NVMe drives. PCIe connectivity may be routed in a couple of ways including limiting GPU x16 connectivity to x8 if excess drives are connected. Does that affect performance? Let's check it out using Gigabyte B550 Aorus Master.
Apple has released a new version of the macOS operating system - Big Sur - as well as new hardware - Mac Mini and laptops powered by Apple M1 ARM silicon. Let's take a look at how well it can run World of Warcraft.
V-slot aluminum profiles are used to construct various mechanical devices including CNC machines, thermal printers and more. There are also PC open case kits that can be adapted and extended to your desires. Let's take a look at what V-slot is and how a V-slot PC case looks like.

Sesto Senso 2 is a motofocuser designed by Primaluce Lab. In comparison to existing ones like those from ZWO or SkyWatcher the Sesto Senso does not use a mounting bracket making it compatible with a wider range of focusers. Lets have a look at the kit and how it performs.
Astrophotography can produce lots of data - wherever it's Solar System imaging creating multiple large AVI or SER files or lucky imaging with DS CMOS cameras on short exposures generating lots of large FITS files. When it comes to processing time can then become a big problem. Lets do some benchmarking of various processing tasks.
Nvidia MODS or
Modular diagnostic software is an Nvidia internal set of tools for GPU diagnostic. Those tools did leak out and are now used by third party repair shops when troubleshooting broken GPUs. Lets take a look what MODS can do and how to use it.
Ray tracing in video games is a relatively new feature that is picking up momentum as more and more games are starting to implement it. This also includes World of Warcraft Shadowlands. Let's take a look at ray tracing features and how WoW implements them.
On 21th of October AMD released new version of Radeon Adrenalin drivers for their GPUs. Support for Shadowlands pre-patch was one of heavily highlighted points of this release so lets check if anything changed.
For Shadowlands Blizzard listed SSD as a minimal requirement. This did frighten a lot of players and in the end SSD ended up as recommended only. How does storage type affect WoW?
