Daily Tech News 17 November 2022

Top Story

  • Twitter workers are now being expected to, well, work. (Ace of Spades)

    A good roundup of events with plenty of juicy links and communists to mock, plus details of the Deep State's determination to get that damn Musk now that he's taken one of their prime propaganda tools away from them.


  • Meanwhile Amazon has started its own massive layoffs of useless communists. (Thurrott.com)

    They're not going to stop supporting communist causes, they're just not going to keep them on their payroll.

    Which I suppose is something. Let them all start vegan organic locally-sourced fair trade coffee shops in Portland.



Tech News

  • Burn them to the ground, sow the ground with salt, load the salty dirt into a rocket, and launch it directly into the Sun.


    And then hit the Sun with a relativistic neutron star just to make sure.


  • One $5000 AMD Epyc CPU outruns two $8000 Intel Xeons. (Phoronix)

    True, it's a geometric mean of 200 benchmarks, both single and multi-threaded, and it doesn't fare quite so well when you only look at the multi-threaded workloads. Still impressive, particularly when we note that this is a 32 core chip in a range that goes up to 96 cores.


  • The Five Essential Keys. (Starlabs)

    PgUp, PgDn, Home, End, and... SysRq?

    Weird, but this is designed to be primarily a Linux laptop rather than Windows.

    Choice of an Intel 12900H or AMD 6800H - similar compute performance but the integrated graphics on the AMD chip are twice as fast, up to 64GB of RAM and 4TB of SSD, a 3840x2400 display (or a 2560x1600 165Hz screen, but since it doesn't have a dedicated GPU that's kind of pointless), two USB-C/Thunderbolt ports, three USB-A, HDMI, microSD, and an audio jack.

    You can even customise the keyboard, but only if you choose the international layout which is kind of awful.


  • The Australian Stock Exchange has cancelled its five year mission to boldly go where no stock exchange has gone before. (The Block)

    The plan was to record all trades on the blockchain. After five years of work they've scrapped the effort at a cost of A$250 million.

    I could have failed to deliver that project in half the time at a quarter the cost. Call me next time, guys.


  • Micron is cutting DRAM and flash memory production by 20%. (Tom's Hardware)

    It takes months for chips to go through the pipeline so this won't affect supply any time soon, but the supply chain may take the opportunity to increase prices. Probably not a lot, though. If the chips were selling well, Micron wouldn't be cutting production.


  • Lenovo is releasing another large, high resolution tablet. (Liliputing)

    The 11" Tab Extreme joins the Tab K10, Tab M10 FHD, Tab M10 FHD Plus, Tab M10 Plus, Tab P11 Plus, Tab P11 Pro - I swear I am not making this up - and Tab P12 Pro in Lenovo's range of full-size tablets with 1920x1200 or higher resolution displays.

    Their sole small high-resolution tablet available outside China, the M8 FHD, was quietly killed earlier this year.

    Not that I am still salty about that at all.
