Yeah I've Fixed It Now Nobody Saw That Right Edition

  • AMD's CES Ryzen 3000 demo was reportedly power constrained and not performance constrained.  (OC3D)

    That is, AMD specifically chose to show off equal performance at half the power, rather than better performance at equal power.  Exactly how much better performance you'd get at equal power is an open question, because we don't yet know the power/performance curve of these CPUs.  Up to a certain point performance tends to scale linearly with power, but there's always an inflection point where it goes geometric, with power requirements scaling to the cube of the performance increment - or more.

    So if AMD undervolted and underclocked their CPU to reduce power consumption by 30-40% for the demo, they might only gain another 10% when they go to full power.

    Or they could just add another 8 cores.

  • AMD is planning to stack DRAM and SRAM on their CPUs.  (Tom's Hardware)

    A single HBM2 package can now be up to 24GB with 300GB per second of bandwidth, which would be great for CPUs and amazing for APUs.

  • Archive.org is frantically backing up Google+ before it becomes our generation's GeoCities.  (Engadget)

    Um.  Okay, don't know about you, but let's face it, GeoCities was my generation's GeoCities.  Ow, my back.

  • MySpace meanwhile has lost everything uploaded between 2003 and 2015.  (BBC News)

    Everything.

    They blame this on file corruption during a server migration.

    Reached for comment, MySpace said "We apologize for the inconvenience."

  • New Zealand is busy blocking most of the internet including BitChute, Archive.is, Liveleak, Dissenter, and Kiwfarms, which does not, in fact, farm kiwis.  (One Angry Gamer)
