  • Gigabyte has announced its new Brix Extreme range of NUCs.  (Liliputing)

    Mostly these are 4 and 6 core Ryzen 7035U chips - that is, Zen 3 CPUs with RDNA2 graphics.  Adequate but hardly groundbreaking.

    But the last model is a Ryzen 7840U: 8 Zen 4 cores and 12 RDNA 3 graphics cores.  This is one of the first 7840U devices I've seen; mostly manufacturers have been using the slightly faster but significantly more power-hungry 7840HS, or the rebadged Ryzen Z1 Extreme.

    Anyway, apart from the CPU it offers two SO-DIMM slots for a nominal 64GB of RAM, though 96GB should work, one M.2 slot, two HDMI ports, mini DisplayPort, USB-C with DisplayPort (so a total of four monitors), plus another USB-C without video, and five USB-A ports.  And 2.5Gb Ethernet and a headphone jack.

    If that's not enough there's a tiny expansion bay where you can add a module for another 2.5Gb Ethernet port, a second M.2 slot, and for some reason, a serial port.

    Prices were not mentioned.


  • AMD's Radeon RX 7600 is now available at Micro Center for $229.  (WCCFTech)

    It's not a high-end card, but that's not a high-end price.


  • Amazone just sent a Dear John letter to users of its Honeycode service.  (Honeycode Community)

    This was a platform that allowed people who didn't understand how to build applications to build applications that they didn't understand.

    The results were rather predictable.
