Tech News

  • AMD's Threadripper 2990WX Ultimate Sewing Silk And Satin Edition is 53% faster than Intel's competing Core i9 7980XE Waffling Whiffenpoof.  On Cinebench, specifically, but that's a solid use case for this chip.  (WCCFTech)

    The Threadripper WX range is not for everyone due to price and memory latency; unless you really need all those cores and your application isn't latency-sensitive, you'd be better off with the Threadripper X or just a Ryzen 2700X.  But for those who need what it delivers, it does seem to deliver.

    Threadripper 2 embargo lifts today, so expect a flood of reviews shortly.

  • AMD's rumoured 2600H and 2800H 45W mobile APUs just got leaked by HPPDF  (Via Reddit)

    As noted previously, this is all the same APU chip; it's just configured at anything from 12W to 65W depending on the application.  And it's a good choice for an all-in-one like this - though I'll stick with my Dell Inspirons and their eight-core Ryzen 1700s thanks.

  • Well, actually...  Apple is only the first company to reach a $1 trillion value if you don't adjust for inflation.  And ignore state-owned groups like Saudi Aramco and PetroChina.

    The Dutch East India Company ($7.4T), Mississippi Company ($6.3T), and South Sea Company ($4.2T) all dwarf the maker of overpriced digital fashion accessories.  (Motley Fool)

    True, all three of those companies peaked during bubbles, the South Sea Company infamously so.  But then, the iPhone X starts at A$1579 and doesn't even have a headphone jack, so don't talk to me about bubbles.

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