Tech News

  • MSI is closing in on my ideal monitor with a 34" ultra-wide 5120x2160 display.  (Tom's Hardware)

    What I really want is a 12800x2880 curved screen so I can have five 2560x2880 apps with one perfectly centered and two on either side.  Right now I'm, um, "making do" with three 27" monitors.

  • A benchmark of what appears to be a 6-core Ryzen 3000 CPU has leaked out as these things inevitably do as launch day approaches.  (WCCFTech)

    Despite having "only" six cores and a slower clock speed, it outperformed the current top-of-the-line Ryzen 2700X on both single and multi-threaded tests in Geekbench 4.  Not by a lot, but 6 cores vs. 8 cores and it still won.

  • I tried that thing where you mount your DigitalOcean object storage as a filesystem.  It doesn't quite not work, but I can't recommend it.

  • Handling 5 million bids per second with a 2ms response time.

    To deliver web ads.  Maybe you're overthinking this, guys.

  • Everything is quiet right now because Computex starts in two days.  Expect a lot more news once that kicks off.

1 I can hardly wait!  My Rzyen 1600X is a huge upgrade over the i5-3570K I was using.  I'm going to wait for at least one full round of reviews but I want something will challenge a 9700K/9900K in terms of clock speed.  (I do have one MMO I play that even with the 1600X and a high-end RTX 2070, still has framerate issues when doing world bosses; apparently it's got some issues involving character models where it's single-threaded, and the only thing that improves that is single-threaded clock speed.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
