For Sale – Gigabyte GTX 1080 G1 Gaming 8GB with Xbox One controller and adapter

I am selling my GTX 1080 bought at the start of Dec 2016 as I haven’t used it in months – it just sits in my tower not even being used.

The graphics card comes with the box and an Xbox One Wireless Controller and adapter that is compatible with Windows 10.

All items are still within warranty.

I would prefer a pickup and can shave some off the listed price as a result of this.

Microsoft just upped its multi-million bet on quantum computing | ZDNet

Microsoft has tipped several million dollars into a new quantum computing R&D lab at Copenhagen University, Denmark.

Microsoft has signed a multi-year deal with the university to collaborate on the development of a general-purpose quantum computer. Microsoft’s staff will be working with the university’s Niels Bohr Institute.

The institute is headed up by professor Charles Marcus, one of four scientists Microsoft hired last year to accelerate its bet that it can create a scalable quantum computer.

Marcus runs the institute’s Center for Quantum Devices (QDev) and the partnership establishes the university as a Nordic outpost of Microsoft’s US-based quantum research lab, Station Q. QDev will be home to Station Q Copenhagen, alongside Station Q labs at the University of Sydney, Purdue University, and Delft University.

Instead of conventional transistor’s on or off state, represented by 1 and 0, a quantum computer’s bits, called qubits, are based on quantum particles and can be both on and off at the same time. That characteristic offers the potential for far more powerful computers.

Microsoft is betting that topological quantum computing holds the key to creating a stable qubit. Topology, or the mathematical study of shapes and space, is gaining more attention among quantum computing researchers.

As noted in Nature, Microsoft’s approach aims to encode qubits in a quasiparticle called ‘non-abelian anyons’ that emerge from interactions inside matter. It hopes to use their topological properties, which make qubits more stable, to create its general-purpose quantum computer.

According to Copenhagen University, Microsoft now has over a dozen employees located there and expects the team to grow as they work toward developing a topological quantum computer.

On top of the multi-million dollar investment, Microsoft has also agreed to “significant” quantum research funding at the university.

“The critical pillars for successful and productive quantum research already exist at the University of Copenhagen — an aligned vision between Microsoft and the university, an exceptional team of top quantum researchers, a broad and deep pool of post doctorate and student talent, and a solid baseline of facilities and equipment dedicated to quantum research,” said David Pritchard, chief of staff for the Artificial Intelligence and Research division at Microsoft.

Wanted – Surface pro pen

Hi I am looking for a pen for my surface pro 3. My present one has a sync problem for some unknown reason, even after I changed all the batteries.

Please let me know what you got!

Broken one considered, I know I only need the top end, which is the Bluetooth part.

Many thanks

For Sale – GTX680, 1150 mATX motherboard, 4GB DDR3, G1620, ITX case

EVGA GTX680 2GB graphics card with EK waterblock. The waterblock came with the card (2nd hand) and I never used it (I ran it with a Kraken G10), it’s discoloured and not sure if it even works so am essentially throwing it in for free. After a quick google it’s probably just staining which could be easily cleaned. No original cooler. £50 posted.

Asus B85M-E 1150 motherboard. Works perfectly and even allows a slight overclock on K processors with the right BIOS. I’ve been running this with a 4770k for a couple of years and it’s never skipped a beat. No accessories or even IO plate with this one, hence the price. £25 posted.

4GB (2x2GB) Micron/HP DDR3 1333MHz. £15 posted.

Intel Celeron G1620 1155 dual core CPU. Used this in an HTPC for a few years, works great. £12 posted.

Compucasde 8K07 mini ITX case with 120W internal PSU. This is great, the smallest ITX case I could find with an internal PSU (I hate external power bricks). Can fit a 3.5″ drive and a slimline optical drive (or 2.5″ SSD if you can live without proper mounting). £25 posted.
