Ten Core Toaster Oven Edition
- Intel's Comet Lake is here. (AnandTech)
The i9-10900K is usefully faster than the i9-9900K. Largely due to having ten cores rather than eight. It's specced with a 5.3GHz top boost clock but a 280mm radiator is not enough to ever actually reach that.
Despite not hitting the rated boost clock, it did hit 254W sustained under load, compared to 144W for a 3950X. But for multi-threaded workloads the 3950X runs rings around the 10900K.
Other than that, well, it's Skylake on 14nm. It's not actually bad unless you care about power consumption in which case it is very bad indeed.
- If you're more interested in Linux, the 10600K and 10900K get a workout there too. (Phoronix)
The 10900K does compete fairly well with the 3900X. Only problem:
But at least according to the RAPL framework reporting based upon the Intel CPU metrics recorded, the actual peak power consumption of the CPU went as high as 380 Watts in extreme cases.That's at stock speeds, not overclocked.
- Engineering samples of Zen 3 are already showing up. (Tom's Hardware)
Not early samples either - these are hitting 4.6GHz boost clocks. Release is rumoured for August / September which doesn't give Intel much time before they get clobbered yet again.
- Windows terminal has hit 1.0. (Microsoft)
With critical features such as... Animated GIF backgrounds and CRT simulation.
- ZFS vs. RAID. (Ars Technica)
ZFS wins. It can needs some tuning on spinning rust, but it allows that tuning - live, in production, on arrays already in use.
Terminal's tabbed consoles is pretty nice: you can mix command prompt, powershell, and (IIRC) bash all in one window.
