AMD processor Ryzen 6000: LGA CPU version based on Intel’s model

AMD allegedly wants to say goodbye to so-called pin grid arrays (PGA) in desktop processors. The chip manufacturer has been using this design since socket A for Athlon CPUs, in which the pins for contact with the mainboard are on the CPU. Instead, the upcoming AM5 platform is to switch to a Land Grid Array (LGA). With LGA sockets, the pins for contact with the CPU are located in the mainboard – the processors only have golden contact surfaces. So CPU pins can no longer bend, motherboards are more sensitive.

Microsoft Flight Simulator patch improves performance but causes more crashes

A major update came to Microsoft Flight Simulator this week, with improved performance as one of its main focuses.

In addition, "stutters have been significantly reduced". That all sounds like great stuff, but unfortunately the update has also been causing the game to crash to desktop for some players, even in the menu. That's not so great.
