  • AMD announced their things.  (AnandTech)

    All the leaks were 100% accurate.  No sarcasm.

    First item to arrive in Q1 2022 is Milan-X, the new range of server CPUs with up to 768MB of cache.  (Which is a lot.)

    Microsoft published detailed benchmarks comparing Intel, Zen 2, Zen 3, and the new Milan-X servers.  (Tom's Hardware)

    Compared to Zen 3 the new chips are between 2% and 78% faster.

    The interesting thing is that - though they didn't announce it today - AMD are expected to release the same update for desktop CPUs.  It's the same core, just with lots more cache, so some applications will benefit a lot and others not at all, but it will at least provide an answer to Intel's Alder Lake until AMD can ship Zen 4 late next year.

Cupertino Delenda Est Video of the Day

I was rather dismissive of Apple's latest dirty trick, disabling FaceID if you need a screen repair on the new model iPhone.  Louis Rossman in these two videos goes into the details of how this is just one part of a much larger scheme to grind customers into the dirt, and completely destroy independent repair shops.

If we're going to suffer through stagflation and double-digit interest rates again, might as well get totally blitzed and enjoy the ride.
