A slide TV manufacturer TCL presented during one of its briefings today has caused no small amount of ruckus online, given that it appears to point towards a next-gen console refresh cycle kicking off next year. There is no evidence that this is actually happening and a great many reasons to think it isn’t.

The only companies that know what Sony and Microsoft’s long-term upgrade plans are for the current console generation are Sony, Microsoft, and the company that designs the SoCs, AMD. Anyone else is speculating. Sometimes a peripheral manufacturer or game developer will let something slip, but development knowledge [...]

Back in the April AMD made news by saying it was “gonna try to make a big splash with overclocking” with its upcoming Zen 4 CPUs. That would be somewhat of a departure from Zen 3, as it’s not exactly known for its overclocking headroom. Now that Computex has come and gone, we’ve been able to see Zen 4 in action.Despite AMD’s statements, it’s not clear how much the overclocking situation has changed. While Zen 4 clearly allows for overclocking, Zen 3 has never impressed in this regard. Zen 4 may not, either.

As a refresher, at Computex AMD showed a prototype [...]

(Photo: Andy Holmes/Unsplash)Sometimes experiments don’t go as planned. Case in point: when some scientists set out on making hamsters more “peaceful” via gene editing, they accidentally made the fuzzy little rodents more aggressive instead. 

Neuroscientists at Georgia State University (GSU) wanted to see how vasopressin, a mammalian hormone, influenced social behavior. They used a relatively novel technology called CRISPR-Cas9—which allows scientists to edit organisms’ genomes—to suppress a vasopressin receptor in Syrian hamsters. The expectation was that preventing the hamsters’ bodies from utilizing vasopressin would result in calmer, more peaceful behavior—but the result was anything but. 

Instead, cutting vasopressin out of the [...]
