Choosing Poorly Edition

  • ASRock Rack has a new server motherboard for Ryzen 7000, with dual built-in 10Gb Ethernet ports and 8 SATA ports.  (Serve the Home)

    It's microATX, but if they release a mini-ITX version - and they did for Ryzen 5000 - I'll buy two of them.


  • AMD's 7745HX appears to be as fast as Intel's 13700HX.  (WCCFTech)

    The 7745HX is the low end of the high-end Dragon Range family of laptop chips, with 8 cores; the 13700HX has 16 cores (8P + 8E).

    On the other hand, the 7745HX uses 50W when playing games, which is a lot for a laptop chip, where the 13700HX uses 80W.

    Oh.  That's the same hand.


  • GDDR7 uses PAM3.  (AnandTech)

    GDDR7 is the next generation of memory for video cards, and will be about 50% faster than the latest current GDDR6X (and twice as fast as typical GDDR6).

    PAM3 is more interesting: It's trinary.  It runs at three voltages, -1, 0, and 1.  This allows three bits to be encoded as two signals - there are nine possible values and 0, 0 is treated as an error.

    The upcoming USB 4 v2 (which will hopefully become USB 5 before it arrives) also uses PAM3 to reach speeds of 80Gbps, twice as fast as regular USB 4.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
