    Nvidia RTX 4090 power connectors melting?

    Yep. ATX standard should be bumped to 24V (industrial controls voltage). Many more I/O options would then become available for simmers and generally anyone interested in automation via desktop/server systems.

    PlayStation 5 Pro and New Xbox Series S / X Specs and Release Date Leaked by TCL

    Console lifetimes overlap. The PS3/360 uArchs stopped exactly when they were released, not a development advance since. Meanwhile, Core 2 was released in 2006 and saw several successors in Core i3/i5/i7 until a console finally launched in *late 2013* (~8 years after its predecessor) that...

    PlayStation 5 Pro and New Xbox Series S / X Specs and Release Date Leaked by TCL

    I think it beats the 8-10 year cycles of dead end development (Cell/POWER) and lowest-common-denominator tech stagnation that comes of it. How many Intel tick-tocks did PC gaming rack up while development was still targeted at the PS3/360? PlayStations and XBoxes now have more hardware in...

    Re-Thinking (or overthinking) Embedded OOP

    I've been writing some embedded libraries for an ongoing personal project and downshifted to really think about my approach. Particularly, I'm sanity-checking whether an object-oriented implementation for some of this stuff is even a starter, or if my OO approach is worthless. Here's where I'm...

    Intel produces another generation of space heaters

    Still haven’t moved on from my 8086k (generally satisfactory) and 1070Ti (terrible supply). No clue if Windows 11 is supported but I can a) write software and b) play some counterstike.

    I had buyers remourse. Cancelled my MBP 14" order :(

    About to pull the trigger on a 16” Pro Max, 64GB, 32-core GPU, 2TB. Hold my (few) beers.

    Apple announces M1 Pro and M1 Max

    True. I keep being reminded of this every time I run into artificial limitations in automation control software (*cough* Rockwell Automation), specifically the fact that their compiler implements every possible operation as an inline call, which bubbles memory usage upon the simplest...

    Apple announces M1 Pro and M1 Max

    This is weird. If you’re given documented, programmatic APIs to use the hardware, how is it an affront to “computing freedom?”

    Intel has started benchmarking their high end GPU's

    Gotta respond to M1 with something
