Daily Tech News 9 November 2021

Top Story

  • AMD announced their things. (AnandTech)

    All the leaks were 100% accurate. No sarcasm.

    First item to arrive in Q1 2022 is Milan-X, the new range of server CPUs with up to 768MB of cache. (Which is a lot.)

    Microsoft published detailed benchmarks comparing Intel, Zen 2, Zen 3, and the new Milan-X servers. (Tom's Hardware)

    Compared to Zen 3 the new chips are between 2% and 78% faster.

    The interesting thing is that - though they didn't announce it today - AMD are expected to release the same update for desktop CPUs, and sooner rather than later. It's the same core, just with lots more cache, so some applications will benefit a lot and others not at all, but it will at least provide an answer to Intel's Alder Lake until AMD can ship Zen 4 late next year.

Cupertino Delenda Est Video of the Day

I was rather dismissive of Apple's latest dirty trick, disabling FaceID if you need a screen repair on the new model iPhone. Louis Rossman in these two videos goes into the details of how this is just one part of a much larger scheme to grind customers into the dirt, and completely destroy independent repair shops.

Party Like It's 1979 Video of the Day

If we're going to suffer through stagflation and double-digit interest rates again, might as well get totally blitzed and enjoy the ride.
