    USB-c to 2.5G Ethernet adapter $30 with coupon

    How about affordable unmanaged switches capable of 2.5? Of 5.0?

    Intel Rocket Lake-S Platform Detailed, Features PCIe 4.0 and Xe Graphics

    Sounds reasonable. I withdraw my outrage.

    Intel Rocket Lake-S Platform Detailed, Features PCIe 4.0 and Xe Graphics

    2.5GBASE-T and 5GBASE-T They're basically the same technology applied to 100mbs and 1gbs connections respectively. If it's got 2.5 why wouldn't it be 5?

    3.2TB SSD for $240

    Damn... If I could fit 4 of these in a 2012R2 box that serves as a ESXi NFS datastore. It would be a big improvement over half a dozen spinning disks.

    Tesla Unveils Radical Cybertruck.

    Tesla has good margins on their cars. The company was in the red for so long because they have huge CAP-EX and OP-EX while getting product lines up and running. It's less of an issue now that the model 3 is being produced full tilt, followed by the Y. But GF1 expansions, GF3 construction and...

    Tesla Unveils Radical Cybertruck.

    Right. And Panasonic isn't investing in more equipment in GF1, even though Tesla is battery-constrained. GF1 has open space in it still, for Tesla to set up their own manufacturing process for batteries. Especially since the Maxwell process is supposed to consume something like 1/4th to 1/8th...

    Tesla Unveils Radical Cybertruck.

    Currently, yes. But the honeymoon is over and they both know it. That relationship is going to end within the next 3 years I'm willing to bet. https://ir.tesla.com/news-releases/news-release-details/tesla-completes-acquisition-maxwell-technologies - Maxwell for their dry electrode and higher...

    Tesla Unveils Radical Cybertruck.

    Stock is way down. I really REALLY should have trusted my instincts and sold before before the market closed. Then I could have bought back in and picked up another 10% of shares. Well, I think that they'll sell. Every single one they make. I think it also means that the 3-motor version is...

    Next gen PS5, close to 2080 level

    Dude, let it go. Just because it's not released doesn't mean it's imaginary. Was the mid engine Corvette imaginary 6 months ago? Do you think Sony and AMD just sit down and whip out a console in a week? Bet you they've been working with AMD regarding Ryzen in console for longer than ANY version...

    Intel 660p M.2 2280 1TB PCIe NVME SSD - $84.99 w/ code NEFPCA96

    It's in the same ballpark as the other best priced 1TB nvme drives. I wouldn't run databases or a bunch of VMs off it in production. But some more space for a Steam drive like most of this forum is looking for?? Hell yes.

    Google data center switching to AMD?

    Yea, I'm in the boat hoping for another glut of decent server parts for cheap.

    Google data center switching to AMD?

    At some point it makes more sense to actually replace servers which are ~6 years old. Speed and power savings, without having to build a new DC around it. In that case, I would say they're replacing. I doubt they're pulling out Intel chips that they just installed.
