  • 100GbE just not getting the job done any more?  Mellanox has a dual-port 200GbE card for you.  (Serve the Home)

    This is one of the factors behind the push for PCIe 4.0.  This card - which will not be at all expensive by enterprise standards - needs more bandwidth than a full PCIe 3.0 x16 slot can provide.

    As I've mentioned before, I mostly still work with 1GbE.  Current model servers might be twice as fast as what I have access to, but current model networking is playing an entirely different game in an entirely different stadium.

  • If you need PCIe 4.0 RIGHT NOW TODAY well, tough, but you can pre-order the Raptor micro-ATX POWER9 motherboard for $799.  (Phoronix)

    One PCIe 4.0 x 16 and one x8 slot, dual GbE ports, 5.1 channel sound (?), two memory slots (?!) and supports up to an eight core POWER9 CPU.

  • AMD's Ryzen 2600X MAX and Ryzen 2700 MAX are exactly the same CPUs with the bigger Wraith Max cooler.  (Tom's Hardware)

    For...  I don't know who these are for.  But they only cost a little more than the standard edition.  The 2600X MAX is a good budget overclocking bundle.

  • How the Paris Accords are destroying the planet.  (New York Times)

    In case you were having a good day.

2 It takes almost the last paragraph to hint that Democrats had any influence in Congress in crafting legislation at the time. Democrats had actually taken control of both houses in 2006 and Bush was an unpopular lame duck President yet it was Bush's speech which gets the political blame. (And EU, what about them?)

4 Mauser, that's exactly the vibe I got from it.
