Banana Edition

Top Story

  • The fifth shoe of the launch season has dropped with AMD's Radeon RX 7900 XT and 7900 XTX.  (Tom's Hadware)

    The XTX has 96 compute units, up from 80 on the 6950 XT, but each compute unit has twice as many shaders as before, so the raw compute power has increase by 2.4x.

    But not everything has increased by the same amount, and AMD estimates real-world performance will improve by 50% to 70%.  This is similar to what we saw when Nvidia did the same trick moving from the 2080 to 3080.

    Performance per watt is also up by 50%, so power requirements have only increased very slightly - 355W vs. 450W for the RTX 4090.

    The RX 7900 XTX with 24GB of RAM is priced at $999, and the RX 7900 XT with 20GB RAM is $899.  Might as well just go for the faster card with that little price difference.

Tech News

  • Why are AMD's Ryzen 7000 CPUs and motherboards so expensive?  (Tom's Hardware)

    Because they cost a lot of money.  And because AMD wants to make a profit, where it looks like Intel is eating a loss on some of their desktop parts.

  • Let a thousand arbitration demands bloom: I fought the PayPal and I won.  (Singal Minded)

    The trick - same as with Patreon - is that PayPal's user agreement forces you to accept arbitration and not take them to court, but PayPal agrees to cover all costs of arbitration.

    So just do exactly what they tell you to do, and demand that arbitration.

  • The Asus ProArt PA32DC is a professional 4K OLED monitor.  (Tom's Hardware)

    That covers 111% of the DCI-P3 colour space.

    I have a new laptop with an OLED screen, but it's still sitting in a box.  I need to do something about that.

  • They remade Bee and Puppycat.

    It's worse.
