Daily Tech News 1 January 2023

Top Story

  • New industries come from crazy people. (Palladium)

    It's an interesting cultural point and the article discusses why so much innovation came from England and later the United States even when key scientific discoveries often happened in continental Europe.

    I wonder how this played out more recently in Japan and Korea. Both countries are socially conservative and tend towards top-down structure, but both had massive social disruptions in the mid 20th century due to, uh, events.

    And yes, the article mentions Elon Musk, though it's from 2021 so it doesn't cover any of the recent brouhahas.

  • Looking to build a new computer for the new year? Supermicro has a heck of a motherboard on the way. (Tom's Hardware)

    This is for Intel's upcoming Sapphire Rapids workstation chips. It has 16 DIMM slots for 512GB of cheap desktop RAM or as much as 4TB of server RAM, four M.2 slots,two U.2 ports,8 SATA ports, six full-size PCIe x16 slots - five of them PCIe 5.0, 10Gb Ethernet, separate 1Gb Ethernet for remote management, 7.1 audio, a bunch of USB, VGA output, and a serial port.

    It will likely cost as much as a good laptop, just for the motherboard.

  • TSMC's 3nm node is already achieving yields above 60%. (Tom's Hardware)

    Samsung's 3nm process is more advanced - they've gone with a transistor design called Gate All Around, where TSMC stuck with the more traditional FinFET - but at last report they were only getting yields of 20%, so their costs will be much higher until they get that fixed.

  • Who the heck is Solidigm and are their SSDs worth buying? (PC Perspective)

    Solidigm is the new brand name created after Hynix bought Intel's consumer SSD division, and yes. The P44 Pro reviewed here falls between Samsung's 980 Pro and 990 Pro in benchmarks, which makes it very fast indeed, and at $220 for 2TB it's not particularly expensive.

Starting the Year Off With a Bang Video of the Day

There's a Taco Bell nearby. I could drive there and back in a day, nearly.

Welcome back.

That scenery at the end is what I see within five minutes' drive in any direction now. Though in some directions you quickly run out of paved road.
