Straight Into My Veins Edition

Top Story

  • AMD's upcoming Rembrandt APU will feature 8 Zen 3+ cores and 12 RDNA2 GPU cores with support for PCIe 4.0, USB 4, and DDR 5 on TSMC's 6nm process unless it doesn't.  (WCCFTech)

    The two big changes are the much faster integrated GPU, and the much faster DDR5 memory support to match.  One isn't really much good without the other.  AMD hasn't released PCIe 4.0 for laptop parts yet because of the increased power consumption, so this will be the first part with that as well.

    These are expected to arrive early next year for both laptops and desktops, with the updated Zen 4 desktop CPUs coming later in the year.  Both will require new motherboards, because DDR5 memory uses a different socket.  (Not unreasonable since it runs twice as fast.)

    Straight Zen 3+ CPUs have reportedly been cancelled, but this will combine Zen 3 CPU cores with RDNA 2 graphics for the first time. The new Xbox and PlayStation consoles have RDNA 2 graphics but use the older Zen 2 cores.

Notice me senpai!

Anime is Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun, a high-school romantic comedy that has that rarest of all traits - it knows when to end, and does.

I like this series because the characters aren't idiots, they just keep falling into the gap between knowing what to do and actually doing it.

1 I remember the scanlation for that, mainly because I had some interest in the mangaka's other title.  (It was partly a delinquent title, and partly a 'save the highschool' intrigue thing.)

Pipeline shutdown says boog to me. 

Either a step in that, or a result of that.

Whether the PRC in bust out mode, commies, uppity criminals, or the federal LEOs discrediting themselves, it would be part of the same cluster of mess that feeds into the boog.

2 "a lady ordered this in person with a completely straight face"
People who order stuff like that don't actually like coffee, although they'll vehemently deny it.

3 Rick, look again: they're not even coffee drinks, they're iced tea concentrate and honey over coconut milk and ice, with whipped cream that also contains iced tea concentrate and honey, and then it gets crazy. By the time this finishes going viral, Starbucks will just call it a "number 17", with a twist of lemon.

4 Search is down on my blog and at Brickmuppet. Does nothing, just refreshes the main page immediately. But seems to work at ai. Maybe servers are different.

5 Pete - I can see the problem, will have that fixed today.

6 On other topic...The reveal of the new outfits for the Hololive-EN members is also bringing into focus their personalities.

I do like Calli's and Ina's new outfits.  Gura stays Gura.  Amelia and Kiara...Well, if outfits reflect personalities, then Kiara is not a surprise.

7 The new designs are very well done.  I particularly liked that Amelia has a new cute fashionable outfit - and is packing heat.

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