Who says you need to leave the house to have fun?

The New Jersey Gaming Enforcement Division indicated that 91,531 Internet gambling accounts have been opened since the state began an Internet gambling trial that began on November 21. What’s more, Internet gamblers opened roughly 20,000 accounts last week alone. Internet gambling was officially opened to the public starting November 25. 

New Jersey casinos that offer Internet gambling stories include Golden Nugget Atlantic City, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino, Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort, Bally’s Atlantic City and Caesars Atlantic City and the Tropicana Casino and Resort. Resorts Casino Hotel could also join the group down the line, but Isai Scheinberg, the founder of PokerStars, their online partner, has been indicted. This resulted in PokerStars being barred from offering Internet gambling for two years.

Though Internet gambling in New Jersey didn’t launch without any bugs or issues, it’s clear that at the very least, there are plenty of people who are willing to shun the glitz and bright lights in favor of their favorite chair the comfort of home. What remains to be seen though, is whether the cash generated by online gamblers will add to the revenue of participating NJ-based casinos, or merely shuffle revenue from those who play in person to those who choose to wager from their desks.

AMD has a new motherboard, but you should avoid it at all costs
The AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D installed in a motherboard.

Alongside Ryzen 9000 CPUs, AMD is introducing a range of new motherboard chipsets. The new 800-series is the typical affair for the most part. The new X870 chipset forces PCIe Gen 5 across both the graphics and storage, and it mandates USB 4, while the new B850 chipset offers optional PCIe Gen 5 for the GPU and mandates it for storage. There's a curious new addition you should avoid, though -- the B840 chipset.

It sounds like a slightly downgraded version of the B850 chipset, and if you believe AMD, it's supposed to sit between B-series boards and the previous A620 chipset. That's not the case. The B840 chipset only comes with PCIe Gen 3 across both storage and graphics, which is actually a downgrade compared to the A620 chipset.
