For almost a year, cryptocurrency miners have snapped up all the graphics cards they could get their hands on. That was a financial windfall for Nvidia and AMD, the leading makers of consumer graphics cards. Both reported soaring profits their last two quarters.

But on Thursday, Nvidia reported its financial results for its second fiscal quarter, which ended on July 29. The results were pretty good overall, with strong demands for Nvidia products for AI and data center applications. However, cryptocurrency-related demand has cratered.

"Our revenue outlook had anticipated cryptocurrency-specific products declining to approximately $100 million," said Nvidia CFO Colette Kress. "Actual crypto-specific product revenue was $18 million."

Disenchantment review: Groening’s new Netflix toon is off to a bloody good start

Our review of Matt Groening's new TV series went live before its formal premiere on Netflix today. We're reposting the review as a reminder: You can now watch all ten episodes of Disenchantment's first "half-season," and we're happy to confirm that the episodes we didn't see in advance are solid. In particular, they tie up the plot threads we complained about in the review below. Give it a stream and join our discussion!

"The Simpsons meets Game of Thrones" sounds like one of those Netflix ideas generated by bots (a tactic that Netflix has employed in the past). That kind of experiment, as cute as it sounds at first blush, could flop if it stitches two dissimilar series together in messy fashion. But the team behind Disenchantment, the first Matt Groening animated series since Futurama launched in 1999, seems blissfully unaware of hot TV trends—and is all the better for it.

Groening's first-ever non-network series debuts on Netflix on August 17 as a 10-episode "half-season," and we've reviewed seven of those episodes ahead of the formal launch. From what we've seen thus far, Disenchantment wins by establishing friendships between unique, likable characters—and then leading them to their basest urges.

HBO picks up Watchmen live-action TV series, will debut in 2019

Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' groundbreaking comic series Watchmen is set to emerge once more on the pop-culture stage—this time as a live-action series on HBO.

The channel's announcement pegs the series' launch for "2019," with no news of a narrower window nor any hint about how many episodes to expect. It rounds up the series' massive cast, as has been teased in various reports over the past year: heavy-hitters Jeremy Irons and Regina King will headline the series, and the likes of Don Johnson (Miami Vice), Frances Fisher (Unforgiven), and Louis Gossett Jr. (Roots) round out the cast. Those actors' characters have not yet been confirmed.

Today's news is careful to describe the show as "Damon Lindelof's new series," as the co-creator of Lost and The Leftovers has helmed this HBO version since its pilot episode was officially greenlit by HBO last September. Earlier this year, Lindelof posted a five-page essay on how this series will (and won't) stray from the source material:
