Daily Tech News 13 July 2021

Top Story

  • The death toll from the massive Bat Flu outbreak that has paralysed Sydney and most of the state of New South Wales rose sharply overnight.

    To two.

  • AMD's Threadripper 5000 is expected to launch in August. (WCCFTech)

    This upgrades the platform from Zen 2 and PCIe 3.0 to Zen 3 and PCIe 4.0, and also doubles the size of the L3 cache.

    This should provide a healthy performance boost for the 24 and 32 core models, but judging by the new Epyc CPUs the high-end 64 core models will be thermally constrained and won't do much better than the older parts.

  • Speaking of being thermally constrained, my PC just overheated and crashed because it forgot to spin up its fan. So I get to type all this in again.

Anime of the day is Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid from 2017. It's the story of Kobayashi, a horribly overworked Python programmer, who gets drunk one night and pulls a sword out of a dragon and invites it to come stay at her place.

Which it does.

Chaos ensues. But it's the very best chaos. Hand-picked artisanal chaos from the ancient chaos fields of the Andes.
