Upgrade to mesh Wi-Fi with the Asus RT-AX92U for $50 off

Asus makes some of the best gaming routers around, as the company not only produces excellent hardware, but usually includes software features you don't normally see on consumer-level routers.

Judge says Epic was 'not honest' when it bypassed Apple's payment system in Fortnite

Folding@home's COVID-19 research now runs up to 60% faster on Nvidia GPUs

As of yesterday, Folding@home efforts are being powered up with CUDA support.
