- Chipmakers to carmakers: Get out of the Stone Age. (Fortune)
Carmakers to chipmakers: Your old chips actually fucking worked. Well, not worked as such, but failed in documented ways. It takes years to validate a new design, and not taking the time to do that validation could get people killed.
- Why is Elizabeth Holmes facing criminal charges when other tech CEOs aren't? It's because she's a wxmxn, isn't it? (NPR)
Because she's a wxmxn who engaged in fraud that could have killed people, yes.
- A review of AMD's "new" 4700S CPU. (Tom's Hardware)
This is actually a a broken PlayStation 5 chip with the graphics cores disabled. It has up to 16GB of soldered-in GDDR6 memory - much faster than DDR4 - but the PlayStation was never designed to support a separate GPU so it only has 4 lanes of PCIe 2.0, which is kind of crap.
It's an adequate desktop CPU but useless for gaming. But if the price is right and you're not planning to play games it might work fine.
- AMD hit 16% market share on server CPU sales in the last quarter. (WCCFTech)
Up from basically 0% five years ago.
- Forget machine learning, return to inverse FFT. (Revue)
A simpler approach to eliminating Moiré patterns, and one that actually works.
- A raytraced Minecraft clone running on a budget FPGA. (GitHub)
Pretty basic but kind of neat. It's a 16-bit CPU running at 32MHz, but has hardware designed to run the game's graphics and physics.

I really need to understand what the hell is going on in there someday. Geometrically - because geometry is where some of the weirdness that it causes is.

Sometimes you don't want the smallest transistors - sometimes you want them to handle some abuse.
