Scythe announces a special edition of its Mugen 5 TUF Gaming Alliance Edition (SCMG-5100TUF) that incorporates RGB LED illumination. This new model will retail in the EU for 49.95EUR.

Scythe Mugen 5 TUF Gaming Alliance Edition with RGB Enhancement
Japanese cooling expert Scythe announces a special edition of the Mugen 5 CPU Cooler as part of the ASUS™ TUF Gaming Alliance series. Outstanding performance with overclocking potential, high cooling efficiency and an exceptionally sophisticated heatsink design are just three of the many advantages the Scythe Mugen series has to offer. Mugen 5 TUF Gaming Alliance incorporates all the features of the acclaimed series and combines them with the unique TUF Gaming Alliance design along with exclusive RGB illumination. For an even more convenient installation, Scythe has implemented the third revision of its Hyper Precision Mounting System for Mugen 5 TUF Gaming Alliance.

Extraordinary Design with RGB Illumination
The new Mugen 5 TUF Gaming Alliance CPU Cooler features a carefully designed top-cover, which incorporates the unique patterns as well as logo of the TUF Gaming Alliance series from ASUS™. The large and translucent surface area in the top-plate is fitted with RGB LEDs. This illumination is further enhanced thanks to the new Kaze Flex 120 RGB fan, offering rich colors and versatile effects. Kaze Flex 120 utilizes eight RGB LEDs inside the ring around the fan motor for consistent and bright illumination. Users are able to take full control of the RGB settings by connecting the fan directly to a RGB-enabled motherboard. This way it is possible to synchronize the colors and effects using the Asus™ Aura or other compatible RGB systems.

Bundled with Kaze Flex 120 RGB Fan
The Kaze Flex 120 RGB fan inherits all the great features and metrics of the series. Thanks to its well-balanced fan speed range from 300 to 1.200 RPM and the PWM support, users are able to adjust the fan speed according to their needs dynamically, using the PWM controller of their motherboard. Kaze Flex 120 RGB is equipped with a high-quality, self-contained liquid bearing (Sealed Precision FDB), which reduces friction and wear to a minimum and offers an average lifespan of 120.000 hours. Yellow rubber pads are integrated into the corners of the fan-frame, in order to prevent any transfer of vibrations.

Easy Installation and Multi Socket Support
Mugen 5 TUF Gaming Alliance supports all major CPU sockets and assures an even easier installation procedure, which has been achieved thanks to the recently developed third revision of Hyper Precision Mounting System (H.P.M.S. III). It is based on a back-plate mounting system with spring-loaded screws for balanced contact pressure. The third revision comes with updated rubber and plastic spacers, which are holding the backplate secured to the motherboard during the installation process. The compatibility list includes the Intel™ sockets LGA775, LGA115x, LGA1366, LGA 2011(v3) and LGA 2066 as well as AMD sockets AM2(+), AM3(+), FM1, FM2(+) and AM4.

Benchmark results of the Ice Lake Core i7-1065G7 popped up in the PassMark database and they show the chip giant's 10nm architecture packs quite a punch. NotebookCheck compared the numbers and concludes the low-power 15W TDP Ice Lake chip outperforms AMD's Ryzen 5 3500U 15W TDP by over 28 percent. With a base clock of 1.3GHz, the Core i7-1065G7 scores 10316 points in PassMark, which makes it also faster than the 35W TDP Ryzen 7 3750H, which scores 9112 points.
More impressively though, the i7-1065G7 also outruns the Ryzen 7 3750H that has a higher TDP of 35 W. The latter chip scored 9,112 in PassMark’s benchmark, which is still some distance from the Ice Lake processor’s published result. The 4-core Intel CPU also demolished both of AMD’s Picasso APUs in the single thread rating, where it scored 2,625 against 1,818 (Ryzen 5 3500U) and 1,899 (Ryzen 7 3750H), respectively. The expected price of the Intel Ice Lake mobile processor is not yet known.

News hit the web that the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition will not be available worldwide. Apparently, this limited edition card will be exclusively sold in select countries.

Overclock3D reached out to AMD and got to hear that besides the US and China, the cards will also be sold in some European countries:
We will be expanding AMD.com sales to more countries, so we expect the 50th anniversary edition will also be available in: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.

Sorry we are not offering global availability at this point. We hear you on the desire. The team is focused on expanding into more regions/countries while making sure we can fully support customers.
This card costs $499, a $50 premium versus the regular Radeon RX 5700 XT. The main difference is that the 50th Anniversary edition has higher GPU clockspeeds.

Word is going around that Intel may have delayed the building of its $11 billion factory in Kiryat Gat, Israel by one year. Israeli newspaper Haaretz claims the decision was made by CEO Bob Swan in effort to cut short-term costs. Oregon Live adds that the similar expansion in Oregon remains on schedule:
The Israeli news site Calcalist reported Wednesday that Intel has postponed plans for its new factory in southern Israel. Haaretz reported Thursday that Intel will delay the project for up to a year, a decision the news outlet attributed to a mandate from new CEO Bob Swan to cut short-term costs.

Mozilla rushed out an emergency patch for Firefox, users are highly advised to install version 67.0.3 as soon as possible. Attackers are actively exploiting the bug, which can be triggered by a type confusion event when manipulating JavaScript objects due to issues in Array.pop. This results in an exploitable crash.

The browser developer says they're aware of targeted attacks in the wild. It seems hackers are using the exploit to steal cryptocurrency:
The bug find is credited to security researcher Samuel Groß of Google Project Zero and the Coinbase Security team. It's assumed that the vulnerability is being exploited to attack cryptocurrency owners, considering where the bug report originated from. Hype around cryptocurrency has risen these past few days, with Facebook officially announcing its own entry this week.

Intel shared details about One API, which features a new direct programming language that will work across Intel's CPU, GPU, AI, and FPGA architectures. A beta version of One API will arrive in Q4 2019.
What's New: Today at Intel's Software Technology Day in London, Intel engineering leaders provided an update on Intel's software project – "One API" – to deliver a unified programming model to simplify application development across diverse computing architectures.

"One API is a project to deliver a set of developer tools that provide a unified programming model that simplifies development for workloads across diverse architectures. As our breadth of compute has grown to include specialized accelerators, Intel will deliver software solutions that allow developers to get the full performance out of the hardware." – Bill Savage, Intel vice president and general manager of Compute Performance Developer Products

Why It's Important: As the world's data-centric workloads become more diverse, so do architectures that process that data. Intel's breadth of architectures span scalar (CPU), vector (GPU), matrix (AI) and spatial (FPGA). These architectures, often referred to at Intel with the acronym SVMS, require an efficient software programming model to deliver performance. One API addresses this with ease-of-use and performance, while eliminating the need to maintain separate code bases, multiple programming languages, and different tools and workflows.

An example of where Intel provides customers with this cross-architecture capability today is Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit, a software developer toolkit that delivers consistent, optimized deep learning inference capabilities across Intel SVMS architectures.

How It Works: One API supports direct programming and API programming, and will deliver a unified language and libraries that offer full native code performance across a range of hardware, including CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs and AI accelerators.

  • Direct programming: One API contains a new direct programming language, Data Parallel C++ (DPC++), an open, cross-industry alternative to single architecture proprietary languages. DPC++ delivers parallel programming productivity and performance using a programming model familiar to developers. DPC++ is based on C++, incorporates SYCL* from the Kronos Group and includes language extensions developed in an open community process.
  • API-based programming: One API's powerful libraries span several workload domains that benefit from acceleration. Library functions are custom-coded for each target architecture.
  • Analysis and debug tools: Building on leading analysis tools, Intel will deliver enhanced versions of analysis and debug tools to support DPC++ and the range of SVMS architectures.

    What Developers Should Expect: Intel will release a developer beta and additional details on the One API project in 2019's fourth quarter.

It can be cooled down about 10 degrees in a closed space, and 30 degrees in an open space. The radiating performance can be increased by 15% comparing with traditional cooling module. Module’s superconductivity – thermally conductive adhesive can effectively accelerate the heat transfer process, so the speed performance won’t be affected by high temperature anymore. CARDEA II uses PCIe Gen3 x4 high speed interface and supports the latest NVMe 1.3 protocol. It has a truly outstanding sequential read/write speed of up to 3400/3000 MB/s, and random read/write speed of up to 180K/160K IOPS.

    With size of a palm and the color of ocean blue, the case of PD400 external solid state drive is solution enhanced. Data can be safely protected with three major protective features: pressure resistant, shock proof and water proof. The sophisticated design is low key and yet tasteful. PD400 only weights 60g, which is highly portable. PD400 uses the latest generation of high speed USB 3.1 Gen1 interface, which is four times faster than general external hard drive in transfer performance. The time for data accessing can be greatly reduced and it can be used more freely at different environments. PD400 is both high performance and tasteful. It is the top choice for external solid state drive that combines convenience, taste and performance.
