Timing Is Everything Edition
- Intel has pre-announced its Sapphire Rapids server CPUs with the high-end 56 core models priced at $12,980. (WCCFTech)
Available some time next year.
- AMD has announced its Epyc Genoa server CPUs with the high-end 96 core models priced at $11,805. (Tom's Hardware)
- And AMD's new 64 core chip is faster than two of Intel's current top-of-the-line 40 core chips. (Phoronix)
And 64% faster on average than AMD's own previous 64 core model, which is even more impressive. A substantial part of that comes from the inclusion of AVX512, so check the individual benchmarks if you're not running number crunchy workloads.
- The Raspberry Pi shortage is coming to an end. (Tom's Hardware)
Probably within a year.
- Investors are preparing a $9.4 billion bailout for money pit FTX. (WCCFTech)
- The FBI pulled a no-knock raid on the operator of an Area 51 conspiracy nut website.
This is totally normal behaviour from a completely trustworthy agency.
- In a shocking turn of events, WeWork is closing 40 unprofitable locations. (New York Times)
I thought they went belly up last year.
- When Netflix announced four more seasons of Rick and Morty all at once I was - let's just say, dubious. I had enjoyed it right up until the last episode of season 3, which wasn't a great ending.
But I've been catching up, and they have not ruined it. Couple of weak episodes, bunch of great ones. Recommended.

AMD: Okay, but we'll do it janky and half-assed.
Also AMD: Guess what! Turns out that a janky, half-assed implementation works better.
