New Lamps For Old Edition

Tech News

  • Can a high-end enterprise SSD from 2017 beat a low-end one from 2020?  Yes.  Maybe.  Some of the time.  (AnandTech)

    The 2020 model has much more consistent performance at low queue depths.  The 2017 model performs better at sustained heavy workloads because it has far more reserved capacity (overprovisioning).

    New old stock enterprise SSDs seem to be quite common in the marketplace and can be solid value.


  • An Asus BIOS update appears to have leaked the details of four new Epyc CPUs.  (Tom's Hardware)

    Including a 16 core model with all eight chiplets active.  It has 256MB of L3 cache, which requires 8 CPU dies, and a base clock of 3.5GHz.  That might be an interesting part depending on how it is priced, which I guess depends on how many partly-functional CPU dies AMD has on hand.


  • Don't panic about the Great Iowa Caucus Disaster of '20.  (TechDirt)

    Just, when anyone brings up online voting, drown them  (9to5Mac).


  • Chrome 80 is out.  It has stuff.  (Bleeping Computer)

    I'm not aware of anything Google has fucked up with this specific release, and it has the usual swarm of security fixes, so go to it.
