  • Threadripper 2 pricing accidentally leaked, looks set for around $1500 for 32 cores.  This is less than what Intel currently charges for their 16 core i9 chip.

  • Build your own 10MHz 6502!  Perfect for that C256 project you might be working on.

    It uses around 700 CLBs in a Xilinx FPGA, which is pretty tiny.  A low-end FPGA can have 15,000 CLBs and cost $15.

  • Facebook and Google are battling the EU in a contest over who sucks more.

    Hard to tell who's winning at this point.

  • TLBleed is a problem.  So far it's only been confirmed on Intel; it seems to revolve around sharing the TLB between threads on a core.  I don't know if that's the case on AMD, IBM Power, or Sparc chips, all of which support multiple threads per core.
