  • Micron has announced LPDDRX-8500 RAM for mobile devices, embedded systems, and eventually, laptops. (Tom's Hardware)

    Mobile devices can take advantage of this because it can use less power to run a fast narrow bus than a wider, slower one. Not inherently, but because the faster versions use newer designs and lower voltages.

    In laptops this could allow next-level integrated graphics. The Ryzen 6800U already has double the graphics performance of laptop chips, but memory bandwidth limits how far AMD can push that. With 8500MHz RAM (actually MT/s but whatever) AMD could potentially double the onboard graphics performance again.

  • Use one big server. (Speculative Branches)

    And a hot backup at another location.

    I like this approach, coupled with a solution like LXC that lets you silo various parts of your application and dynamically allocate resources. A lot less work than maintaining multiple physical servers.

  • Speaking of multiple physical servers HP has announced its new range of AMD Epyc Genoa systems. (Serve the Home)

    With up to 192 cores, 6TB of RAM, 60 SSDs, and 8 graphics cards.

  • You'll never get rid of the Dane. (Archive.ph / Bloomberg)

    US banks paid an estimated $1.2 billion to ransomware operators in 2021.

Disclaimer: Not Dane from accounting. Though he's pretty hard to get rid of too.
