Microsoft reportedly has a lot of ideas for the name of its revamped IT conference, which will be held in Chicago from May 4-8, and is reportedly sending a list of those ideas to a select number of customers and partners to get their input.

This event might also take over from Microsoft's TechEd Europe conference in 2015, but the company has yet to confirm if that will indeed happen.

Intel has announced its 11th Gen H-series of processors aimed at high-end gaming rigs and portable workstations. Based on Willow Cove core microarchitecture on 10nm SuperFin the new chips feature Thunderbolt 4, Wi-Fi 6E, more PCIe lanes, and PCIe 4.0 on top of the "world's fastest" single thread performance. Over one million of the chips have already shipped and are available in the...
Intel H570 motherboards aren't quite as popular as the more expensive Z590 sibling, but that's for good reason. This slightly less capable chipset is tailored to those who have less budget to spare on a motherboard, but it has more than enough in terms of technology to handle 10th and 11th Gen processors.
