  • Intel has quietly slipped Tiger Lake B into the sales channel - so quietly that I missed the importance of this yesterday. (WCCFTech)

    Existing 11th generation Intel desktop CPUs are made on their old 14nm process; until now only laptop chips were produced at 10nm. Tiger Lake B represents Intel's first 10nm desktop parts.

    We'll have to wait for reviews to see exactly how this turns out, but the new 11900KB uses 65W at base load, compared to 125W for the 14nm 11900K. It also looks like they've increased the cache from 16MB to 24MB.

    On the other hand, base clocks for the 11900B are a little slower than before.

    The 11500B on the other hand looks like it could be a gem: The power remains the same at 65W, but base clocks are up from 2.7GHz to 3.3GHz, and maximum boost clock from 4.6GHz to 5.3GHz.


  • Intel also has graphics cards on the way. (Tom's Hardware)

    This is great given the ongoing shortage and sky-high prices from both Nivida and AMD. The cards are expected to have up to 512 Xe execution units, which gives us a good idea how fast they will be, because Tiger Lake laptop chips have up to 96 Xe units. The dedicated cards will likely run at a faster clock.

    On the downside, we won't see these until next year, so in the meantime it's either wait or pay the scalper.






Anime of the day is Irresponsible Captain Tylor from 1993. There's 26 TV episodes, followed by a 10 episode OVA series that ran from 1994 to 1996 and wait, where did that come from? A 12-episode sequel called Irresponsible Galaxy Tylor from 2017.

Justy Ueki Tylor is either a supernaturally lucky idiot or a tactical genius, or a little of both. He joins the Space Force to work a cushy job in the pension department, but finds himself on the frontline just as a major war breaks out.

This is one I would recommend to fans of Dirty Pair; it leans a little more into the comedy but it features people good at their jobs being allowed to do their jobs, and the anime itself is clearly a labour of love.

Irresponsible Anime Music Video of the Day



Contains spoilers for the series but they go past pretty quickly and anyway, everyone has motive to try to murder Tylor.


It Fell Off the Back of a Truck Video of the Day



Today's entry makes Dell look good. The Dell system was competently engineered and assembled, it's just that everything was designed to reduce cost rather than to make the system run smoothly.

This system from iBUYPOWER was delivered untested and physically broken.


Bonus Not Actually Junk Video of the Day



Looks at first glance like cheap knockoff rubbish but it's actually a competently-built product that performs exactly as it should.
