    "Star Trek: Discovery" Renewed for Season 3

    I like the gay androgynous etc themes and don't mind the cameos. When I saw Stacey I thought it was her but in my mind I said no way. (go figure)

    ARM server status update / reality check

    It looks really neat. The new mesh CMN-700 12 x 12 = 144 CMN-600 (old) 6 x 6 = 36 Which I guess implies each 72 core chip is a 6 x 6 mesh. 2 cores per cross point 2 x 6 x 6 = 72 Further a 4 chip module would be 4 x 2 x 6 x 6 = 288 So CMN-700 is 4 x CMN-600 how nicely incremental

    Intel Pressuring Board Partners to remove features from Alder Lake via bios update for "Product Segmentation"

    Ironically the AVX512 was the only reason I wanted one. (programming) I guess I'll just wait till it goes mainstream.

    Cowboy Beebop live action at Netflix!

    I went through almost everything I've seen and it's slim pickings, literally, other than a few that are specifically made for body image. (Ex Princess Jellyfish). Black Clover does have some. Puli Angel Charmy dark hair below. (although Charmy has many forms) Fire Force. Maki Oze. Turn...

    Cowboy Beebop live action at Netflix!

    I kindo like the new Faye. IMO she was way too brooding in the original. Yeah her story was super tragic, but she seems fun now. I felt the original Wild Wild West segways in that new teaser. Maria Murdock near the end, they sure prettied her up. It's an outrage. Yes I'm being sarcastic Edit...

    ARM server status update / reality check

    The Ampere Altra Max Review: Pushing it to 128 Cores per Socket Very unique. Moar Cores / Moar Problems. TLRL: Less L3, cache coherency rears its head, throughput for some things is amazing as is compiling (not linking), transactional java sux.

    Good content in the previews. I saw blacksploitation shaft and domino from mushroom samba, ed in the TV tree, Asimov from red eye. At the very least they're not m night shyamalaning an avatar.

    Cowboy Beebop live action at Netflix!

    I have no problem with the casting. Jet was voiced by a black man (Beau Billingslea) back in the day and for someone who loves the voices of DUB anime the new casting fits. When I hear him in other anime. Ex Rom in "Zero, Starting Life in Another World", I declare that's Jet. He's old now, so...

    AMD Stacked V-Cache

    It does make you wonder. AMD's L3 latency went up, Zen 2 40, Zen 3 46. Maybe just to get better clocks. Or maybe extra logic to work with memory stacked on top of it. Does the cache line increase to 192 or way to 48 ?

    Zen 5 Ryzen 8000 Strix Point APUs to sport hybrid, big.LITTLE-esque CPU architecture on TSMC 3 nm process

    I see a bit of convergence happening here. The latest neoverse and it's MPAM (memory partition and monitoring) show that with large scale processors, housekeeping is more than necessary. The ampre did a great job of prioritizing non-streaming loads memory access, which seemed to allow it to keep...

    Alienware Really Doesn’t Want You to Buy an AMD Ryzen PC

    Ok stop defending them so virulently Straw man. I have problems with anti-competitive behavior. Stop trying to re-frame it, they applied 2 different standards to competing products.

    I have no problem with EVGA or any supplier's choice to carry a product. (As long as they don't pull a Sapphire scalping) I have a problem with non-competitive behavior. If you're so savvy in tech and sales, why are you acting as an apologist for Dell? Convoluting the issue with weird anecdotes...

    Alienware Really Doesn’t Want You to Buy an AMD Ryzen PC

    So if you went to a dealership that sells both BMW and Hyundai and the sales team was only showing BMWs with eco mode on while the Hyundais were allowed to run in sport, (for whatever reasons) you would be ok with that ?

    Binned DDR5 supposedly hitting 10,000 MT/s

    I think a lot is being missed in this latency focus. DDR5 has a bunch of tweaks that make past metrics less comparable. Each DIMM is dual channel with on board circuitry with ECC and management. I only wonder if this can provide some out of order processing. The ROW latency (above) is only one...

    woosh (over your head) The user can't spec single channel 16gb on intel. Yet that is the default on AMD. If default configurations were put head to head, the AMD system would look bad. Moreover, if one were to take those default systems and look them up on a piece of shit propaganda site like...

    Ampere Altra Performance Shows It Can Compete With - Or Even Outperform - AMD EPYC & Intel Xeon

    Insanely well written article. Andrei did such a good job of pointing out the various differences and tying them into the outcomes. Icing on the cake was the explanation for the high memory numbers. Ampere did so many unique things. 64k pages, memory controller provisioning (4x2chan), very...

    Alleged AMD EPYC 7003 128-Core 2P Zen 3 System Cranks Insane Cinebench R23 Score

    M1 was a poor choice to compare with. It over preforms as a 4+4 and under performs as an 8. It is possibly the furthest point of reference sans a mid range quad core. A 4800u scores ~10k which is ~8x the ~80k+ result. (cinebench nice scales) But I can see why the latest buzz needs to be...

    Since this is basically the M thread. Gary Explains - MacBook Air (M1) Real World Performance and Thermal Throttling Test Even if it isn't the best metric, to see two systems a 9980hk (8c16t 2.4-5g) and an M1 (4x4 3g) stutter and burst through the varying workloads is quite telling.

    Alleged Apple M1X Processor Specifications Surface

    But the Renoir APU does more. It provides more interfaces on chip. Other than the neural engine they have basically the same internals sans LLC placement and size. Branding the APU as other is wrong. It's as much a SoC as the M1. So threads are now a bad thing? Less is the new more I guess.

    FP6 MP1 Looks like Renoir has way more on chip. Apple did get rid of the T2 chip though. Edit: ASRock Industrial 4X4 BOX-V1000M Less chips. 2 power, a multimedia, giga lan, and a wireless pci-e module.

    Alleged Apple M1X Processor Specifications Surface

    I'm pretty sure SoC (system on a chip) and APU (accelerated processing unit) are synonymous. I guess if you remove the GPU you can have a SoC that isn't an APU but both of these chips have GPUs so moreover moot. But there is a point to be made here. With regards to power, the 4800u system...
