Fair And Balanced Edition
- The Fairness Doctrine must end now. (TechDirt)
Never tiring of righting wrongs that aren't happening and excusing wrongs that are.
I'm about to drop them from my list of sources as they're rapidly turning into a mirror image of One Angry Gamer.
- Rocket Lake may hit 5GHz. (Tom's Hardware)
This is Intel's 11th generation and it's not Skylake this time, it's Icelake or Sunny Cove or Emu Plains or some such nonsense. Anyway, finally a significantly updated architecture with real IPC gains.
It will apparently be a bit slower than the 10900K in some respects (down from 5.3GHz and 10 cores to 5GHz and 8 cores) but the IPC gains are estimated at 18% so it is better overall for most use cases.
Still at 14nm and still probably eats electricity like a moose eats spirulina, but them's the breaks. It should give Intel a clear lead on single-threaded performance for the time being. Zen 3 will likely overtake the 10900K, but not the whatever they call the new chip is.
- In the interests of creating a safe space for all our readers, we are kindly asking our readers to get fucked. (Distractify)
We in this case is Yahoo, who have just nuked their commenting system because, apparently, people were using it to comment.
- The Chuwi Larkbox now comes with a free mini keyboard / controller / thing. (Indiegogo)
Was thinking about this the other day, because if you just take it and add a very stripped down version of Linux that boots straight into FreeBASIC, you have an instant retrocomputer, except that it has working HDMI and wifi and is really really fast.
Well, almost. I don't think FreeBASIC has an interactive mode; you'd have to write that. But you could do that in FreeBASIC.
- What is ReactiveX? (ReactiveX)
No idea, sorry. I read that page twice and still don't know.
- Ethereum is still fucked.
62 is better than 100, the same way that a .45 to the chest is better than a .50.
