CD Projekt's apology video and Cyberpunk 2077 update roadmap may not be enough to dissuade angry investors. A multitude of law firms are coming out of the woodwork and giving spurned CD Projekt investors and opportunity to sue the company for incurring material losses from the Cyberpunk 2077 controversy. Following the big bruhaha surrounding the game's performance on last-gen consoles, CDP shares dropped by over 30% and have yet to recover. The lawsuits allege that CD Projekt willfully hid and/or neglected to inform investors and consumers about the state of the game (which, by CD Projekt's own admission, is partially true).

According to our searches, CD Projekt is now being sued by thirteen U.S.-based law firms, per Yahoo Finance:

  1. Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP
  2. Levi & Korsinsky, LLP
  3. Pomerantz Law Firm
  4. Law Offices of Howard G. Smith
  5. RM Law
  6. Schall Law
  7. Rosen Law
  8. Bragar Eagel & Squire
  9. Wolf Haldenstein Adler Freeman & Herz
  10. Gross Law Firm

Palit submits now-postponed GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics cards to EEC

Anthony Garreffa | Video Cards | Fri, Jan 15 2021 7:21 PM CST

NVIDIA might have just "indefinitely postponed" its new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, more on that here -- but in the meantime Palit is still preparing custom RTX 3080 Ti cards.

A new listing on the Eurasian Econopmic Commission website teases multiple new SKUs of custom Palit GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3060 graphics cards. There is a boat load of different SKUs listed in the EEC listing for custom GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics cards.

The list is also joined by custom GeForce RTX 3060, GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, and finally the custom GeForce RTX 3050 graphics cards that will make their way out to gamers in the coming months. It seems the RTX 3080 Ti is in a holding pattern right now until NVIDIA can get more GPUs -- AMD is in a same, and even worse position as there are even less custom Radeon RX 6000 series cards available right now.

NVIDIA 'indefinitely postpones' new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card

Anthony Garreffa | Video Cards | Fri, Jan 15 2021 6:33 PM CST

If you were like me, you were waiting and hoping that NVIDIA would release its new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti with 20GB of GDDR6X memory -- then you'll be disappointed to hear it seems to have been "indefinitely postponed".

Tech Jesus over at GamersNexus said in their new video titled 'NVIDIA Indefinitely Postpones RTX 3080 Ti, Launches RTX 3060 GPU Specs, Ampere Laptops' that the "once inevitable RTX 3080 Ti" wasn't announced at CES 2021 during NVIDIA's all-virtual event.

Tech Jesus explained: "postponement is likely due to the community response to the cards in general, and you can just look at the chat window from the live event, to see why NVIDIA might think it was in poor taste to announce yet another GPU".

SAPPHIRE's new fanless Radeon RX 5700 XT is a silent crypto mining GPU

Anthony Garreffa | Video Cards | Fri, Jan 15 2021 6:13 PM CST

We live in a world where you can't even buy AMD's new RDNA 2-based graphics cards in the Radeon RX 6000 series, so here's a card that you won't want to buy -- as it's focused on the mining market, but it's technologically impressive. Introducing the new SAPPHIRE GPRO X070, a passively cooled Radeon RX 5700 XT graphics card.

The new SAPPHIRE GPRO X070 rocks the Radeon RX 5700 XT underneath, so we have a 7nm GPU with 40 CUs and 2560 stream processors. There's 8GB of GDDR6 on a 256-bit memory bus that is more than enough to get some great GPU compute performance -- cough crypto mining -- through the SAPPHIRE GPRO X070.

SAPPHIRE has the GPU clocks at 1607 / 1755 / 1905MHz for base, game, and boost clocks respectively. There's also a second BIOS that enables "Efficiencyt Mod" which reduces GPU clocks to 1500 / 1700 / 1750MHz for base, game, and boost clocks respectively. This would be perfect for all-day, all-night crypto mining setups.

TSMC promises to fix global auto chip shortage, says it's a 'priority'

Anthony Garreffa | Technology in Vehicles | Fri, Jan 15 2021 5:59 PM CST

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) is starting 2021 off well, with news floating around that it will be making chips for Intel in the near future, record products for 2020, an expanded $28 billion spend on advanced chips in 2021 -- and now TSMC will solve global auto chip shortages.

Volkswagen announced last month that it was worried about the low supply of chips coming in from China would disrupt production for the German automaker, while Honda said it would be closing its UK plant temporarily because of global auto chip shortages.

Never fear, TSMC is here!

TSMC CEO CC Wei explained: "The shortage in automotive supply has become more obvious. In TSMC, this is our top priority. The automotive industry needs a lot of semiconductor components... such as mature technology for sensors and power management. We are working with customers to mitigate the shortage impact".

TSMC to spend up to $28 billion on making next-gen chips in 2021

Anthony Garreffa | Business, Financial & Legal | Fri, Jan 15 2021 5:37 PM CST

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co (TSMC) is going all-in on next-gen, with the company planning to spend $28 billion increasing the capacity of its plants -- amid the most demand for its technology ever.

TSMC said during a recent Q4 2020 earnings call that the company will see a 50% increase in capacity investments in 2021 compared to 2020. The demand for chips is at fever pitch -- AMD with countless products (Zen 3 + RDNA 2 + EPYC + Ryzen Threadripper) as well as the semi-custom designs for the Sony PS5 and Microsoft Xbox Series X/S products, new chips from Intel, chips for Apple, chips for Qualcomm, and chips for many of the world's largest tech companies.

Brian Bandsma, a portfolio manager at Vontobel Asset Management said: "Usually, historically, when you see TSMC's capital expenditure numbers, it's a good leading indicator of how they are seeing demand. They are very conservative about their capital expenditures number. They're not going to be overly aggressive".

Kim Dotcom: Bitcoin to replace USD as world's reserve currency by 2030

Anthony Garreffa | Cryptocurrency & Mining | Fri, Jan 15 2021 5:24 PM CST

Kim Dotcom has come out swinging, with the MEGA founder tweeting out that within the next 10 years "the USD will be replaced by Bitcoin as the world's reserve currency".

He started off by saying "After WW2 the US was the largest holder of gold and other countries linked their currencies to USD. The gold standard is long gone but 61% of all foreign bank reserves and 40% of global debt are in USD. That's why the US had the luxury of printing USD to finance its debt".

But then it swung directly into cryptocurrency as the answer, where he replied to his original tweet saying: "Within the next 10 years the USD will be replaced by Bitcoin as the world's reserve currency. Nations can no longer rely on USD because of out of control US debt and excessive USD printing by the US for its own benefit. The fall of US Empire is near. Experts know and buy Bitcoin".

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is peak smartphone... 2 weeks into 2021

Anthony Garreffa | Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones | Fri, Jan 15 2021 3:55 AM CST

Samsung has made its new Galaxy S21 family of smartphones official, with the new flagship Galaxy S21 Ultra being a truly king level smartphone with some incredible hardware at its fingertips.

We're looking at a large 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED display with a WQHD+ resolution of 3200 x 1440 @ 515 PPI and an adaptive and beautifully smooth 120Hz refrsh rate with HDR10+ certification on top. Inside, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is powered by either Qualcomm's new flagship Snapdragon 888 or Samsung's own in-house Exynos 2100 processor.

Depending on the model, you're looking at 12GB or 16GB of RAM (up from 8GB inside of the normal Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21+ smartphones) while storage options include 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB. There is no microSD card slot on the new Galaxy S21 smartphones, with even the flagship Galaxy S21 Ultra missing out -- I'm sure it's going to be shifted over as a Galaxy Note exclusive in 2021.

Samsung Galaxy SmartTag: you'll never lose your keys ever again

Anthony Garreffa | Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones | Fri, Jan 15 2021 3:33 AM CST

Samsung has just introduced the latest member of its Galaxy family of products, with the introduction of the new Galaxy SmartTag. Check it out:

The introduction of the new Galaxy SmartTag has been in the planning for a while, as it is controlled by the new SmartThings Find service that Samsung launched recently. Samsung's new Galaxy SmartTag uses Bluetooth Low Energy technology, and has a button that lets you start a pre-defined smart home routine -- turning on a light, or your air conditioning for example.

Samsung's new Galaxy SmartTag works just like a Tile tracker, pairing with your smartphone through the Samaung SmartThings app. You can search for the Galaxy SmartTag, and when you get close to whatever the tag is attached to -- a bag, keys, or even something like a Nintendo Switch -- you can tap your phone and the tag will make a noise so you can easily find it.
