Because I Don't Have Enough To Do Edition

Top Story

  • Spun up a virtual server running Ubuntu 22.04 today. So far I have nothing to complain about.  Which is good, if dull.


  • AMD officially announced Ryzen 7000, due "this fall".  (AnandTech)

    Most of the information we already had about it has been confirmed - though the 24 core model turns out to be wishful thinking at this point.

    The base model is 15% faster than the special edition Ryzen 5800X3D, which is good though not huge.  But it will go up to 16 cores where the X3D is limited to 8.

    Onboard RDNA2 graphics are confirmed for all Ryzen 7000 models, and clock speeds up to 5.5GHz.


  • Also confirmed is that dual-chip chipset.  (Angstronomics)

    The chip is call Promontory 21 and is designed by Taiwanese company ASMedia - not a respin of the CPU's I/O chiplet.  It's not a high-end design, but you can simply run two of them to get more I/O.  They daisy-chain so you only get 4 downstream PCIe lanes from the first chipset, and 8 from the second.

    It's a 7W part so it won't need a chipset fan, which was a problem with the AMD's first X570 chips.

1 "It has enabled venture capitalists to do securities fraud as their business."
I shouldn't be nagging retards about things like vocabulary or diction or grammar, yet it's that thing where someone says something that I agree with, but their reasoning is entirely stupid; so anyone who uses the term "venture capitalists" in such a context must have gotten a crayon stuck up their nose when they were 22 and not even drunk at the time.  I would put good money on xem having xeir pronouns in xer email signature slash twitter bio(graphy).

2 He doesn't have his Twitter link on his Youtube channel, but said channel features a picture of him wearing a mask, so you're probably right.

3 OK, I found him on Twitter, and...yes, his pronouns are on his Twitter bio.

4 Boy! was looking at his twitter a dreadful error.  He even retweets Max "I Ate My" Boot, of all the smart and educated things to do.  I just felt a million IQ points suddenly cry out in terror, and then were silenced.
I'll bet I could sell him a black fist ass-plug as a bicycle seat.

5 And now amazon ads will be interesting for a while, I guess.

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