  • So is Ars Technica right about anything else, or is it all crazytown over there?

    House bill would eliminate natural gas. (Ars Technica)

    Crazytown it is then.


  • I previously criticised Intel for making dumb decisions with their upcoming 12th generation platform, but if the latest leaks are accurate they merely did something weird. (Tom's Hardware)

    Alder Lake, Intel's 12th generation desktop family, brings support for DDR5 and PCIe 5.0. But it only supports PCIe 5.0 for the PCIe slots - and no consumer cards support PCIe 5.0 - and not where bandwidth is most needed, on the interface to the chipset.

    But the diagram in that article shows that bandwidth to the chipset has actually doubled, because the width of the band has doubled. It's still based on PCIe 4.0, but now has 8 lanes rather than 4.

    That's fine. You could still potentially saturate that link, but it would take some serious effort. The chipset on AMD's high-end Threadripper motherboards also uses an 8 lane PCIe 4.0 interconnect, so that's pretty good for a consumer platform.

    The weird part is the number of PCIe lanes in total. Between the CPU and the Z690 chipset, an Alder Lake system can have up to 48 lanes of available PCIe: 16 at 5.0 speeds, 16 at 4.0, and 16 at 3.0. But the CPU has 28 PCIe transceivers and the chipset 36, when they are typically designed in blocks of 16.


  • Thunderbolt adaptors aren't likely to "just work" any time soon. (Mat Millman)

    If it's not built into your motherboard you're going to have a bad time.


  • Don't rewrite your project in Rust. (ITNext)

    Or at all. Unless you know exactly why you are rewriting it, have already run a pilot project and measured the benefits, and have someone prepared to pay for it, it's a bad idea.

    Unless you're using Node.js, in which case, no time like the present.


  • Quadranet has filed to have a copyright infringement lawsuit dismissed. (TorrentFreak)

    Quadranet notes that it is not alleged to have infringed upon anyone's IP rights.

    Its customer, LiquidVPN - well, LiquidVPN uses many providers, one of which is Quadranet - LiquidVPN is also not alleged to have infringed upon anyone's IP rights.

    Some of LiquidVPN's customers, or at least, some people using services purchased by some of LiquidVPN's customers, are alleged to have infringed upon IP rights.

    The plaintiffs here seem to be following the Willie Sutton rule. Not to give them any ideas, but if they took that to its logical conclusion they might be able to force dramatic changes on the industry.

    Though they might also simply lose and be forced to pay the defendants' legal bills.


  • Axios is why private citizens should be allowed to own nuclear weapons.
