AMD dominating with its Ryzen 5 3600

AMD’s Ryzen success story continues, with a single Ryzen 3rd-gen processor coming close to selling as much as Intel’s entire CPU range, according to the latest statistics from one European retailer.

Naturally, that left Intel on 22% of units sold for August, and once again, AMD wasn’t far off equaling the sales of Intel’s entire range of CPUs with one single Ryzen product – except this time the chip which managed that feat was a different one.
Last month, AMD’s top performer was the Ryzen 7 3700X, but that’s now in second place in terms of individual CPU sales, with the Ryzen 5 3600 taking the top spot. Indeed, the latter actually sold more than all of Intel’s 9th-gen offerings put together.

The tweets also had links that led users to malware-infested sites. While CBS was able to regain access to its accounts, it was unable to figure out who was behind the attacks, until now.

Can Technology Do a Better Job of Finding Bombs?

 With the horrifying images of the Boston Marathon bombing still much too fresh in our minds, and with citywide marathons coming up this weekend in London, Hamburg, and Salt Lake City , law enforcement officers and citizens everywhere are asking how to prevent the tragedy from being repeated. As Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs adjunct professor Abraham Wagner observed last year, on the 11th anniversary of 9/11, there’s “no magic bullet o
