Short And Sweet Edition
- More leaks of Radeon 6000 specs from recent driver updates. (WCCFTech)
In raw numbers, Navy Flounder - the 6700 XT - looks to be 30% faster than the current 5700 XT, and Sienna Cichlid - the 6900 XT or whatever they choose to call it - to be 130% faster. Dimgrey Cavefish will be the new low-end card and will probably run somewhat faster than the current RX 5700 (non-XT).
These numbers put the 6900 XT at about 75% of the raw TFLOPs of the RTX 3080, but the RTX 3000 series increased TFLOPs more than it did game performance, so AMD looks to be in the 3080 ballpark.
It could all be nonsense, but the numbers are plausible. We already have full specs for the RDNA2 chips in the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, and these line up pretty well with those designs.
- PyPy 7.3.2 now supports Python 3.7. (MorePyPy)
The 3.7 version is marked alpha, though it's considered stable outside of specific new Python 3.7 features.
- The return of Fiber Channel: Kioxia (Toshiba) is sampling SSDs that plug directly into 25Gb Ethernet. (Serve the Home)
Each drive has dual Ethernet ports for redundancy.
Fiber Channel itself is still around and according to Wikipedia can now hit speeds of 256Gbps, which is quite a lot.
- San Francisco's Metropolitan Transport Commission is thinking of requiring tech workers to work from home. (NBC News)
"Preferably from a different state entirely," they added. "California is fucked."

What a crybaby. I spent the last year and a half in a crowded-ish environment (four-story apartment "tower" in an urban environment) working from home. In Texas, which isn't any kind of walkable Mecca, either (although if your needs are fairly limited, where I lived in North Dallas actually kinda was.)
