Deepcool @ CES 2016

If you haven't heard of Deepcool before, after this CES, you will probably be trying to find someone who sells their products here in North America. Deepcool brought some interesting designs to their suite this year. One of such is the Tristellar case and by looks alone one could almost say it was out of a Star Wars movie. The graphics card is contained in the top one of the three "wings", while the PSU is in the lower left "wing" and lastly the ITX motherboard and CPU are housed in the lower right. There is also enough room to stick one of Deepcool’s liquid coolers in the case as well.

The Images will show the Tristellar S white case however this is a special Bill Owen MOD case with only 50 made globally; the normal version of the case comes in black.

The Genome which will be hitting the market later this year is more than just a case, it's an extreme liquid cooling system. The case and liquid cooler are designed to fit seamlessly together all the while bringing some interesting design elements in along the way. The cooling solution is a 360mm radiator with 3 PWM fans, a helix reservoir, and all the while using the new captain design CPU block and pump. Depending on the final price when it hits the market it really could be worth looking at when building a new rig.

To top it all off DeepCool was demonstrating a PSU that was liquid cooled which is something not too many people have worked on. Who knows if it will become a mainstream item or not, but it's always cool to seem something new and different.

Qualcom Chip Flaw Exposed 900 Million Android Users

There has recently been four new security holes in Qualcomm chips that power everyday Android devices and this is not good. Not good at all. The exploit could enable a malicious person to bypass permissions and run whatever they wanted - without the user knowing. Qualcomm makes about 65% of the world's smartphone chips - so this is a huge deal. The upside is that three out of four holes have already been patched, and the last one is coming very soon. The downside is that if your carrier doesn't push the update - you won't get it automatically. Nexus owners will be getting this patch much sooner however.

This situation highlights the inherent risks in the Android security model. Critical security updates must pass through the entire supply chain before they can be made available to end users. Once available, the end users must then be sure to install these updates to protect their devices and data.

AMD Zen CPUs coming in 2017

AMD is getting their Zen CPUs ready for a fight with Intel in 2017 in the high-performance ring. AMD had been in the mid-range market for a while but they want the high performance CPU market to be theirs, which for the last decade has been dominated by Intel. Only time will tell how these new CPUs compare to the high-end Intel chips, but if nothing else it might help drop the prices which is a good thing for consumers. Engadget has the story.

A block away from Intel's Developer Forum in San Francisco, AMD brought together a select group of media and analysts to make one thing clear: Its long-awaited Zen processor actually exists, and it's on track to ship early next year for desktops. Surprisingly, the company is aiming directly at the high-end PC gaming market, whereas its last few chips appealed more to budget builders.
