Daily Tech News 1 June 2021

Top Stories

  • AMD had their Computex keynote, and announced a few things, some expected, and one not.


  • Ryzen 5000 desktop APUs will be coming to the retail market August 5th. (AnandTech)

    The 5700G is an 8 core / 16 thread part with a 65W TDP and will cost $359. The existing 8 core CPU, the 5800X, costs $449, so that's not a bad price.

    It does run 100MHz slower, and it has half the L3 cache and only PCIe 3.0. On the other hand, it uses less power than the 105W 5800X and has built-in graphics.


  • The Radeon 6000M family - AMD's new generation of laptop graphics - is also here. (AnandTech)

    The 6800M is basically a reduced power version of the desktop 6700XT. The 6700M is a cut down and reduced power 6700XT - 10GB of RAM instead of 12GB, and about 90% of the performance. And the 6600M looks like the leaked specs for the upcoming Radeon 6600.

    It looks like the 6800M isn't quite as fast as the mobile RTX 3080, but it's not too far behind.


  • And finally, AMD CEO Lisa Su put to rest rumours that they were working on 3D chip stacking technology by announcing that 3D chip stacking technology would be going into production this year. (AnandTech)

    Su showed off a version of the Ryzen 5000 with 192MB of L3 cache. The existing high-end parts have 64MB across two CPU chiplets, and the new version stacks another 64MB cache chiplet on top of each of those.

    They reported performance gains of up to 25%. Admittedly that's in one specific game, Monster Hunter World, but 25% is huge and MonHun is huge.

    It also helps with a limitation of newer process nodes. TSMC's 5nm node is about 35% smaller than 7nm, but only for logic circuits. For memory it's basically the same size as 7nm. With die stacking AMD could produce just the CPU chiplets on 5nm and the cache dies on the older and cheaper 7nm process.






Anime of the day is Strange Dawn, animated by Hal Film Maker (who also did Princess Tutu) and distributed by Pioneer in 2000. Mostly.

In fact the English language release by Urban Vision only got as far as episode 8 before the series disappeared without a trace, which is why no-one really remembers it today.

It's something of a cross between the classic isekai story where the heroes are transported to a fantasy world, and Gulliver's Travels. Because the heroes - heroines - are indeed transported to a fantasy world, but the inhabitants are about six inches tall.

Which means that two teenage girls are suddenly vast and terrifying engines of destruction, and everyone is plotting to gain their trust and/or kill them.
