Computer fun: how a CPU is made, aspect ratios, case recommendation

A CPU is build in a very strictly controlled environment where the transistors are build by simply building them layer by layer though a process called photolithography. Today we have CPUs in which the transistors are 14nm big. It is an incredible step since the first ICs in 1947, but basically a CPU is build […]

Tech Quickie, in the person of Linus Sebastian, explains that color depth ( or lack thereof) is often the culprit when you find distracting visual anomalies in video content, but because resolution gets marketed so heavily we are mislead into buying the wrong devices. Higher bitrates and better color depth should be also our focus. […]
