Overclockers have pushed Intel's new Broadwell chip to 5.7GHz

Intel's new 10-core Broadwell-E gaming chip is only a few hours old, but already overclockers have pushed a 3GHz version of the chip to 5.7GHz and they say they're only just getting started.

Overclocking is the process by which software commands and extreme cooling are used to push processors to run faster than they are typically designed to run -- the chip equivalent of putting your foot on the gas and flooring it while keeping your car under control.

At an overclocking event at the Computex trade show in Taipei on Tuesday, large tanks of liquid nitrogen stood on the ready to help overclockers keep the processors cool.

Digital Storm's 34-inch Aura is a gaming powerhouse, thanks to compatibility ...

Earlier in 2016, we saw the launch of a bunch of powerful all-in-one (AiO) PCs, includingOrigin?s Omni and Maingear?s Alpha 34. Now, custom PC-maker Digital Storm is bringing another entrant into the powerful gaming AiO trend with the launch of the 34-inch Aura, an all-in-one that was designed to rock your gaming world with Nvidia?s ?badass? GTX 1080 graphics cardand Intel?s new 10-core Broadwell-E chip?the Core i7-6950X. The Aura was announced on May 31 at Computex in Taiwan.

5 reasons to cut the cord that aren?t about saving money

When I cut the cable-TV cord in 2008, the decision came from necessity. My freelance writing career was just starting, and I couldn?t scrape together enough work to justify an extra $50 per month for TV service.

Eight years later, I?m gainfully employed but still have no desire to become a cable subscriber. While Time Warner Cable has tried plenty of times to change my mind with cheap promo deals?some of which are awfully close to what I pay for streaming-video services?my reasons for being a cord cutter aren?t just about money anymore.

Here are five reasons that I?m happier without traditional TV service, monthly savings aside:

Freedom from the physical cord

With cable, your TV setup is dictated to some extent by the location of the cable cord itself. Want to put your entertainment center on the opposite side of the room, or in a room where there?s no cable hookup? You?ll have to run that cable through the floor or through the walls yourself, or hope that the cable company?s technician will do it for you. It?s a hassle either way, and satellite TV service is even worse: You have to put a dish on your roof and suffer reception problems in poor weather.

10 things you need to know about Intel's crazy 10-core Broadwell-E CPU

Intel?s newly minted Core i7-6950X features a groundbreaking 10 cores. In celebration of this personal-computing milestone, here are 10 things you need to know about this 10-core chip.

1. It has 10 cores, silly

Intel?s new Broadwell-E family is defined by its top dog: the 10-core Core i7-6950X. It uses the same basic ?5th-gen? cores found in laptops of 2015 and is built on a 14nm process. But yeah, 10-cores, man?10-cores. With its Hyper-Threading, that means an insane 20 threads of compute power at your sweaty fingertips.

For those who like to track records, this is the first consumer x86 chip with 10 cores. Before you bark that you?ve been able to get Xeons with 10 cores and more already, that?s true, but Xeons aren?t normally for consumer consumption.

Apple is said to be extending iPhone refreshes to once every three years

Apple is looking to make evolutionary rather than revolutionary changes to its iPhone this year as it extends the major refresh cycle to once every three years, according to a report in Tuesday?s Nikkei newspaper.

The change, which the newspaper said Apple is ?likely? to make, is due to there being little room left for major advances in smartphone hardware?at least until an entirely new technology comes on the scene. As chips get faster and software gets better, the benefits seen by annual upgrades are getting smaller.

Nikkei said this year?s model will look ?almost identical? to the iPhone 6 and have minor changes such as improved camera quality, water resistance and a better battery. The headphone jack is also slated to be removed, it said.

Intel's Broadwell-E gaming CPU is a stunner, offering 10 cores for a whopping...

On paper, Intel?s massive new 10-core?yes, 10?Broadwell-E gaming chips top out at 3.8GHz. But buying one is like purchasing a lottery ticket to free overclocking?without voiding your warranty.

The flagship feature of the new Broadwell-E line is something Intel calls Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0, a technology that tests each individual core on the chip and figures out which one can be safely pushed beyond its normal limits.That?s on top of a 20- to 25-percent improvement overits previous gaming chip, the Haswell-E generation, Intel claims.

?It?s the biggest, baddest CPU we?ve ever done,? said Frank Soqui, the general manager of the enthusiast client platform division at Intel, in an interview prior to the Computex show in Taipei, where the chip was announced Tuesday.

Intel Broadwell-E Core i7-6950X Review: The first 10-core enthusiast CPU is a...

Monstrous. Brawny. Or in the parlance of our times: OP for ?overpowered.? All are apt terms for Intel?s new 10-core Core i7-6950X, a muscular CPU so over-the-top in power, that you?d have to be crazy to need one.

But Intel?s Extreme Edition CPUs have never been about catering to practical need. No, they cater to your desire for raw performance.This time, though, Intel is pushing both performance and your wallet to the very edge with a CPU priced at $1,723.

No, that?s not a typo: $1,723.For just one CPU.

For more details on the chip, read Mark Hachman's deep dive. To find out if Intel?s brutishly powerful chip is worth it, read on.

Qualcomm wants to make kids' wearables a thing

Why should grown-ups have all the fun? Qualcomm has developed a new chipset that aims to build a worldwide wearables market for kids.

Smartwatches for the under-12 set are already popular in some Asian countries, including Korea, providing a way for parents to keep track of their kids when they?re away from home.

Qualcomm hopes its new chipset, called the Snapdragon Wear 1100, will help take that phenomenon worldwide. It?s working with a few partners who plan to release wearables for kids later this year.

The chipset includes GPS for location tracking and LTE support for making calls.

?You?ll always know where your seven-year-old daughter is -- she can always call you. And if she leaves school when she?s not supposed to, you?ll know where she is,? said Pankaj Kedia, head of Qualcomm?s smart watches division, at the Computex trade show in Taipei.

PowerColor's Devil Box graphics dock infuses laptops with hellacious performance

The battle to bring desktop-class graphics performance to your laptop is starting to heat up in earnest. At CES in January, Acer, Asus, and Razer revealed external docks that let you connect desktop graphics cards to your notebook, and now, graphics card vendor PowerColor is jumping in on the action.

The PowerColor Devil Box most closely resembles theRazer Core. Itdelivers desktop graphics to your laptop over a speedy Thunderbolt 3 connection with help from AMD?s newXConnect technology, which was developed in conjunction with Intel. Asus? ROG Station X2 demands a pair of Thunderbolt 3 connections, by comparison, while Acer?s external graphics dock is powered by a mobile graphics chip that can?t be swapped out.

Indian minister holds out hope for Apple stores

Apple may still get to set up wholly-owned stores in India, with the country?s Commerce Ministry promising to discuss the matter with the Finance Ministry that had objected to the proposal.

Indian government rules require that foreign-owned, single-brand retailers source 30 percent of their products locally, but the Indian government had indicated that it could provide a waiver of that requirement for branded stores of retailers of high-tech products. Apple had hoped for such an exemption from the government.

On Monday, Commerce and Industry Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said that her ministry did not oppose providing a waiver to high-tech companies like Apple and would discuss the matter with the Finance Ministry.

Move over, Skylake: Asus' new Surface rival rocks Intel's Kaby Lake chip

The wait for Intel?s Kaby Lake chip will end in the third quarter this year, as the first PC with the 7th Generation Core chip was announced at Computex.

Kaby Lake, the successor to Intel?s Skylake Core processor chips, will be in the Asus Transformer 3 tablet. The device is much like Microsoft?s Surface Pro 4, and will ship in the third quarter starting at $799, according to a blog entry on Microsoft?s website.

The Transformer 3 was among a gaggle of PC and phone products announced by Asus at Computex. No other Kaby Lake PC has been announced yet, but expect Lenovo, HP, Dell and others to follow suit.

New Asus water-cooled laptop doubles up on GPUs and power supplies for insane...

Last year, Asus blew away enthusiasts with the GX700, a crazy Republic of Gamers-branded gaming laptop that featured full-blown water-cooling thanks to a hulking dock that connected to the rear of the notebook. This year, the beast is getting even more badass.

Asus ROG?s keeping the exact details about the GX800 water-cooled gaming laptop close to its chest, but what?s already been announced is intriguing indeed. The laptop will rock ?Intel K-series CPUs? clocked at 4.4GHz and memory clocked at 3.8GHz, according to Windows Central, while the graphics firepower comes courtesy of a pair of unannounced Nvidia GPUs running in SLI. Asus recently teased a gaming notebook more powerful than a Titan X desktop graphics card. Presumably this is it, as that teaser image showed what appeared to be GX700-style water-cooling connectors, and presumably it?ll be rocking a mobile variant of either the new GeForce GTX 1080 or GTX 1070, Nvidia?s incredibly potent (and power-efficient) new graphics cards.

Meet Avalon, Asus's audacious, tightly integrated vision for the future of DI...

The PC?s DIY hardware ethos is both a blessing and a curse on computing. On one hand, the open ecosystem fuels innovation and serves as a major selling point for enthusiasts. On the other, the basic design of PCs hasn?t really changed in decades. You slot motherboards, storage, and various add-in cards into a case and wire them up. That underlying structure helps sustain the universal natural of PC hardware?but now Asus? Republic of Gamers brand thinks it ?can do better.?

At Computex 2016, Asus ROG showed off its Avalon concept PC, a computer that tightly integrates all aspects of the PC for a redefined design, but still supports the platform?s DIY strengths. The end result is a creation largely devoid of wires and something that looks more like a premium stereo system than a traditional computer.

Researchers from Web security firm Sucuri have found a stored cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability that affects all Jetpack releases since 2012, starting with version 2.0.

The issue is located in the Shortcode Embeds Jetpack module which allows users to embed external videos, images, documents, tweets and other resources into their content. It can be easily exploited to inject malicious JavaScript code into comments.
