    Out of no where i started getting a "hum bar" on my TV, specifically when I connect my laptop to my TV via HDMI. (And my PS4 too)

    When googling it says this is a ground issue associated a lot with cable TV, but I don't have a cable box to this TV, or a fiber optic cable in general

    Does anyone know what the likely issue is? When I have nothing connected to the TV and I unplug and replug it's fine. The second I plug in an HDMI to any devoceon any port, I get the scrolling bar moving up on my screen .

    Some other potential troubleshoots here, and an explanation of the most likely culprits (one you already named):

    Connecting the subwoofer to a different AC outlet.

    Otherwise, try to remember anything new or different you've introduced to the setup since the issue was caused, or any electrical changes to your house. Fastest way to isolate the cause is to work backwards like that, most likely.

    Intel makes it a three-way race with AMD and Nvidia on graphics chips
    So this is why Koduri left. AMD was throwing everything into AI, and I'm guessing that wasn't really his specialty of expertise or interest as an engineer.

    Frankly, this doesn't make sense to me at all. It's almost as if Intel predicts its own obsolescence in the CPU race, thanks to the rise of ARM, and sees its future as a competitor to NVIDIA and AMD's graphics wing. The past decade it seemed like they were focused (quite intelligently) on the horizon of low-powered APUs, and the highest per-core or per-thread performance in that space. Everything is shrinking.

    This headline, for me, feels a bit like an indication of a surrender, not an attack; that the ARM semiconductor companies have won that race...except that doesn't make sense at all in the big picture.

    Keep in mind that Intel just lost the (relatively small) market of Mac laptops. Apple is set to take over production of its own CPUs-- actually APUs just like all the Intel processors-- in 2020 with its own "A" series chips that it has been using to drive the iPads and iPhones. That's not a massive market, but it's not slim pickings, either. Below includes the desktop market, too, but MacBooks now make up roughly a 10% share of the global laptop market, and of course laptops now dominate desktop OS computer industry sales:

    I read the new chips that aren't vulnerable to Spectre and the other thing aren't even released yet.

    Not for $100. Some reviewers are even having problems hitting the advertised 5ghz. They're probably just binned 8700k's.
    I'd rather buy an i7-8700k from Silicon Lottery. Same price as the 8086k but it's delidded and guaranteed to hit 5ghz.

    Intel doesn't have that many sku's that make sense anymore. There's only 3 processors that are really worth buying. The G5400 for minimum low end, i5-8400 for mid, and 8700k for high end.
    Even the G5400 can be argued against. By the time you add a GT1030, the R3-2200G become cheaper. The R3-2200G is a little slower than the G5400/GT1030 combo, but it's 4/4 cores which should be better if you decide to upgrade video cards in the future.

    A 290X still competes with an RX580 or 1060 6gb, it's a little slower but not enough to notice a difference. Prices have been dropping down to MSRP levels so keep an eye out. EVGA is having a 10% off sale.
