Umber Tilapia Edition

Tech News

  • Sienna Cichlid could be Big Navi.  (Tom's Hardware)

    Or not.  It's an AMD GPU and drivers will be included in Linux 5.9, but other details remain elusive.


  • PCIe 4.0 switches!  Get yer PCIe 4.0 switches!  (AnandTech)

    Clearly targeted at the storage market, because they make explicit note of hot-plug support.  Up to 100 lanes and 174GB per second of bandwidth.  Not likely to be cheap though.


  • Intel's C3000 lineup offers a lot of meh for your dollar.  (PC Perspective)

    16 cores for under $400 and using just 24W is the good part.  The bad part is that those are Atom cores.  The other good part is 16 SATA ports and built-in 2.5 or 10GbE.  These are likely to find a home in future products from Synology and Qnap.


  • TechDirt is drunk again.


  • MSI's Creator 15 has Intel's brand new Core i7 10875H which is a shame because it's otherwise a rather nice laptop.  (WCCFTech)

    15.6" 1080p or 4K display, up to RTX 2070 Super graphics, two M.2 slots and two SODIMM slots for up to 64GB RAM, and a bevy of I/O ports including Thunderbolt, HDMI, and wired Ethernet.

    AMD-based designs with Thunderbolt are still far and few between, so that likely guided their choice.  Oh, and all essential keys are accounted for.


  • An image of an Angel becomes an Angel itself.  (Android Authority)

    In this case at least it only bricks your phone rather than transporting you into the past to live yourself to death.

1 Sienna Cichlid sounds like a name for an MSNBC reporter.

2 NPR reporter from the 1990s.  Yeah, she probably got a job at MSNBC later, but we all remember her from when she was on "Wait Wait, Don't Tell Me" telling the deeply insensitve joke about the Chinaman in the dentist office that they later deleted from the archives.

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