The Best PC Benchmarking Tools (System, CPU, GPU, RAM and Storage)

If you recently purchased or built a new PC, or upgraded an older PC, the most important thing to do aside from stress testing is to benchmark. Whereas stress testing helps ensure the PC is completely stable not only during idle but also during heavy load, benchmarking will help ensure that the PC is operating at the appropriate level of performance for the components installed. As simple issues such as an outdated driver or an improperly configured component may significantly degrade performance, benchmark testing will allow you to quickly catch any issues and to fix them immediately so you can take full advantage of the new hardware that you’ve spent your hard earned [...]

Keylogger Discovered in HP Audio Driver

A keylogging vulnerability has been discovered in HP laptop’s audio driver, says the independent Swiss security firm Modzero.

The security concern stems from the way the audio driver handles inputs from media control keys. The driver process, called MicTray64.exe, records when media keys are pressed and change settings accordingly.

This is harmless on its own, but the problem is that the driver also writes keystrokes to a text file called MicTray.log. If the file is obtained, the attacker can extract personal information such as passwords and credit card numbers.

The situation is made worse when the MicTray.log is not created or doesn’t exist. [...]

Micron, Samsung DRAM Woes Further Constrains DRAM Supply

According to a recent article from Digitimes, two of the world’s largest memory manufacturers may be having a hard time perfecting their sub-20nm DRAM processes. Micron is experiencing low yield rates transitioning into its 1xnm DRAM node, while Samsung had to recently recall a large batch of DRAM modules built on its 18nm process.

Last month, Micron announced that it was planning to spend $1 billion to upgrade its TaiChung fab to 1x nm, aiming to make its chips ready for the market by the end of the year. Due to the lower yields, its products may be delayed.

Samsung on the other hand had to recall more than 100,000 DRAM modules after PC OEMS reported [...]
