ASUS has just announced its new GeForce RTX 3080 Noctua Edition graphics card, the second in the ASUS x Noctua family of GPUs.

The new ASUS GeForce RTX 3080 Noctua Edition moves to a dual-fan cooling design, away from the 3 x 92mm fans on the original ASUS TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3080. In their place are 2 x Noctua NF-A12x25 120mm fans that are much quieter, and a heat sink that keeps the GPU, GDDR6X memory, and VRMs much cooler.

Kent Chien (Corporate Vice President and General Manager of the ASUS Multimedia Business Unit) explains: "The synthesis of our custom-engineered unified heat sink and Noctua's famously whisper-quiet fan technology forges a creation that is more than the sum of its parts. This inspiring partnership with a world-class leader in DIY PC cooling establishes a noise level breakthrough for the powerhouse GeForce RTX 3080 Noctua Edition graphics card - and a visual style that you won't find anywhere else".

Twitter's Senior Engineer says Twitter staff are 'commie as f**k'

Anthony Garreffa | Cameras | Mon, May 16 2022 9:28 PM CDT

Twitter would be a real mess to work at right now, as the social networking giant was spun into a whirlwind when the news broke that Elon Musk was acquiring the company. But now... now Twitter's Senior Engineer told an undercover journalist that "Twitter does not believe in free speech". Check it out:

Not only that, but Twitter Senior Engineer Siru Murugesan said: "Twitter does not believe in free speech" to which the Project Veritas undercover journalist said: "What do you mean". Murugesan replied, saying "Elon believes in free speech. He's a capitalist and we weren't really operating like capitalists, more like very socialist".

The Senior Engineer of Twitter added: "like we're all like commie as f**k"

He continued: "Ideologically, it does not make sense like, because we're actually censoring the right, and not the left. So, everyone on the right wind will be like, 'bro, it's okay to say it, just gotta tolerate it'. The left will be like, "no, I'm not gonna tolerate it. I need it censored or else I'm not gonna be on the platform".

Israel to test 'AI floating sun-tracking system' to make clean energy

Anthony Garreffa | Science, Space, Health & Robotics | Mon, May 16 2022 9:11 PM CDT

In what feels like something ripped out of the future -- or maybe out of the multiverse -- Israel's Finance Ministry and the Israel Innovation Authority (IIA) announced they will be testing a new project: an artificial intelligence (AI) floating (yes, floating) system that would generate electricity by tracking the sun.

The new AI-powered floating system is the work of a collaboration between Israeli company Xfloat, which made the system, and Mekorot national water company. The AI system will be floating above the reservoir water, tracking the sun and moving around for the absolute optimal results (power from the sun, onto its solar panels).

Xfloat has designed the system based on machine learning capabilities, sucking in that previous data over time, optimizing its performance continuously. Israel's Finance Ministry and the Israel Innovation Authority (IIA) said that the system has a high power generation capacity and can handle environmental changes and extreme weather.

The new ASUS ROG Strix Scar 15 gaming laptop will see a new flagship model packing the Core i9-12900H (14-core CPU) and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU with a TDP of 150W. ASUS is hosting its new "Boundless: For Those Who Dare" event tomorrow, where we should get the official introduction.

Expect DDR5 memory + PCIe 5.0 support, and what I'm sure will be a monster 1440p 240Hz or 4K 120Hz display. The Intel Core i9-12900H processor inside will be overclocked, smashing up to 5.2GHz inside of a gaming laptop... impressive to see, another thing I want to see is how the thermals are with the ASUS cooling system used on the ROG Strix Scar 15.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090: 16128 CUDA cores, 2x faster than RTX 3090

Anthony Garreffa | Video Cards | Mon, May 16 2022 8:02 PM CDT

The rumor mill for next-gen GPUs runs harder than ever before in silicon history, with fresh rumors on NVIDIA's upcoming flagship GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090: 16128 CUDA cores, 2x faster than RTX 3090 515 | TweakTown.com

The new GeForce RTX 4090 with an Ada Lovelace-based AD102-300 GPU rocking 16128 CUDA cores, 24GB of GDDR6X memory at 24Gbps, and a 450W TDP will reportedly pack twice the performance of the GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card.

This is according to leaker "kopite7kimi" on Twitter, who said: "OK, let's do a new summary. RTX 4090, AD102-300, 16128FP32, 21Gbps 24G GDDR6X, 450W, ~2x3090. I am disappointed with RDNA3. That's all". This lower 450W power news flies in the face of previous 600W power claims... as the RTX 4090 (450W) is now rumored to be twice as fast as the RTX 3090 (350W). That's a huge achievement for only 100W increase in TDP.

Great Sphinx of Giza in Egypt eyes are CLOSED, is it a great hoax?

Anthony Garreffa | Business, Financial & Legal | Mon, May 16 2022 6:53 PM CDT

The Great Sphinx has had the world's eyes on it over the last couple of days, as rumors and speculation suggested that the Sphinx was spotted with its eyes CLOSED. This might not seem like much, but it is very, very significant.

The infamous statue guards over the three pyramids in Egypt, since it was crafted at what we believe in 2500 BCE -- under sand until 1939 -- but now some activists posted pictures of the Sphinx on social media showing that it had "closed its eyes". This phenomenon means that there is a "major event" that will take place in Egypt in the very near future.

As for the Sphinx, it was created with the body of a lion and the head of a human -- which we are to believe is the fact of Pharoah Kafre -- who ruled around 2500 BCE. The above post on Facebook from Mohammed Hassan translated: "There is no comment, the Sphinx has closed its eyes without the intervention of the archeological authority, restoration, or anyone getting close to the eye".
