ibVPN in brief: P2P allowed: Yes Business location: Târgu Mureș,Romania Number of servers: 180+ Number of country locations: 50 Cost: $37 (Standard) / $58 (Ultimate) VPN protocol: IPSec (default) Data encryption: AES-256  Data authentication: HMAC-SHA2-256 Handshake encryption:  DHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384 Romania-based ibVPN (Invisible Browsing VPN) does not have a beautiful app. It looks a little dated, in fact.

Intel’s Kaby Lake-G mystery: Why Radeon Vega M may be more Polaris than Vega

But an industry-standard system utility identifies the Kaby Lake-G as having an AMD Polaris bloodline. And we’ve discovered other evidence suggesting the chip’s GPU…
