  • Intel's 12900K head-to-head with AMD's 5900X and 5950X. (Tom's Hardware)

    The 12900K wins the single-threaded benchmarks and many of the multi-threaded tests as well. The 12900K seems to be solidly out of stock, but I did find the 12900KF - the version without integrated graphics.

    Intel has finally caught up after four years lagging behind. They are using twice as much power to do so, but that might not matter to you.

    AMD has two updates in the pipeline - Zen 3+ on the Rembrandt APU, and Zen 3D which is the current core with triple the cache, up to 192MB in total.

    But for now, if you want the best single-threaded and gaming performance, Intel is where it's at.

  • POSSE - Publish Own Site, Syndicate Elsewhere. (IndieWeb)

    Now there's a thought.

  • Memory leaks are crippling the new M1 MacBook Pro. (MacWorld)

    I mean, we've all dealt with Chrome deciding to eat 8GB of RAM and needing to be forcibly restarted, or [insert name of Adobe app] eating 16GB and asking for more, but this seems excessive:

  • No! Stop! What are you doing?! You had it right the first time. (Rachel by the Bay)

    The solution to the stated problem is horrifying.

  • Is that a current item? Apparently yes. The Lenovo ThinkEdge SE50. (Serve the Home)

    This is an IoT - internet of things - server. There's a right way and a wrong way to implement IoT. The wrong way is what everyone does, which is to connect the things directly to the internet so that they get hacked instantly and can never be fixed.

    The right way is what this device is for. It's a small, passively-cooled server that is designed to sit between the internet and your smart devices. To that end it has built-in WiFi, four USB ports, four serial ports, six Ethernet ports, HDMI and DisplayPort, and dual audio jacks.

    Inside there's two SO-DIMMs, two M.2 slots, and a 2.5" drive bay.

    It's all powered by an Intel Core i7-8665UE, which while slower than the 1165G7 in my laptop is certainly not slow. It will breeze through the sort of stuff you are likely to run on it - you could manage all your IoT devices and use it as a home theatre PC at the same time.

  • Microsoft is adding more AI features to Office. (ZDNet)

    Well, fuck.

  • And the only man standing in their way is, uh, Henry Kissinger? (Time)

    How is he not dead?

  • The jokes write themselves.
