Intel Replaces Consumer SSD Line, Nixes SLC-SSD

2themax Re:Still too pricey per gig for mass storage (165 comments)

Every microATX motherboard I've seen in the last couple of years has four RAM slots. Both AMD and Intel.

Reconfigurable computing is already possible with FPGAs. You can't go and buy commodity x86-type hardware such as CPUs or GPUs just yet, but "soon" (sooner than practical nuclear fusion, later than DNF) it will happen.
