HW News – HDD False Advertising Lawsuit, X570 & Z490 Chipset Cost, Switch Knock-Off

In hardware news this week, we're talking about a class action lawsuit vs. Western Digital, new Intel stock coolers (sort of), a Nintendo Switch knock-off, X570 vs. Z490 chipset cost.
Sponsor: MSI Z490I Unify Mini-ITX (Amazon https://geni.us/j7G9A) Show notes: https://www.gamersnexus.net/news-pc/3591-hw-news-western-digital-class-action-lawsuit-chipset-cost GN got some leaked information on chipset cost from motherboard manufacturers, including information on Z490 and X570 chipset cost (particularly relating to Z390). That discussion point looks into BOM of motherboards and the nature of the higher-priced flagship chipset-bearing boards. Other news items this week include AMD AGESA naming scheme changes, Linus Torvalds building an AMD system for his development and compiling work, ARM updates, a Nintendo Switch clone, ASUS' BFB counterpart (APE), Intel's stock cooler improvement, and WD's lawsuit.
