Well, Shit Edition
- Yet another outage with this damn server. The automated restart almost worked. It silenced the alarm but didn't actually bring the blogs back to life.
- We're gonna need billions of solar panels to extract carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and combine it with hydrogen extracted from water to turn it into fuel. (Casey Handmer)
Or trees. Because that's what trees do.
- SpaceX has broken the launch record it set in 2021. (Space.com)
With five months left in the year.
- That idiot who thought a Google chat bot was sentient has been fired. (Big Technology)
For breaching a confidentiality agreement, not for being an idiot. Unfortunately. Because we had a teachable moment here.
- Intel's 13700k is basically a 12900k. (WCCFTech)
Which is good if you mostly care about getting eight fast CPU cores, not about the slower efficiency cores, because you should get 12900k performance for a lot less money.
Unless Intel suddenly decided to increase CPU prices. (The Verge)
- Intel's W9-3495 will offer a 56 core workstation CPU running at... Oh. (Tom's Hardware)
Running at 1.8GHz.
Though that might be (a) an engineering sample, (b) the minimum clock speed when running all cores with AVX512, or (c) both.
No, he discovered it had appeared to display such a sense.

Intel: Right, raise the freq and tell more lies about the thermals. That way our Newâ„¢ chip really obviously beats AMD in a bunch of benchmarks that run for 1 or 2 minutes (tops) and we can score a win!

"The CPU showed minimum clock speeds of 5289 MHz and max clocks of up to 5381MHz."
