We recently had a Netgear Nighthawk X8 AC5300 Smart WiFi Router give up the ghost when it got stuck in a reboot loop. The good news is that this model was still covered under the devices 1-year warranty, so we figured that we’d contact Netgear customer service and start the RMA process.

Things AMD Needs to Fix
     Fri, Jun 29 2018 | 9:03A | Editorial | PermaLink

We don't believe AMD is a saint, it's still a big company trying to accomplish what most businesses should: make money.
