- If you missed that $249 fire sale on 12 core AMD Threadripper at Amazon the 1920X is now officially $399. That's a nice discount over the $649 2920X. (PCGamer)
Intel's 12 core i9-7920X is $999.99 on NewEgg.
- The strange case of Nickelodeon vs. the Slime Princess. (Techdirt)
- OpenBSD disabled Intel's hyperthreading by default some time ago. It's looking more and more like this should be widely adopted. Sucks for Intel. But if you're wondering why Intel has been able to deliver better performance than AMD all these years, it is clearly at least partly because they have been cutting corners on the security of their architecture. (Tom's Hardware)
- The catch with Amazon Lightsail: Sustained performance is terrible. About 1/3 of Digital Ocean if you're lucky. If your code is busy, you'll be throttled to 1/20th of a core.
So to get the sustained performance of Rally Vincent (a Ryzen 1700) would cost me $800 per month. And if I need that in one VM, well, tough.
