Daily Tech News 2 February 2023

Top Story

  • AMD's Ryzen 7000X3D lineup has prices and schedules, with the top-of-the-line 7950X3D due on February 28th at a price of $699. (AnandTech)

    If you've been following along, you might notice that this is exactly the same MSRP as the regular 7950X, making the X3D version something of a bargain. But if you've been following along, you might notice that Micro Center will sell you a 7950X and 32GB of DDR5-6000 RAM for under $600. Assuming you live somewhere with a Micro Center because that's an offer designed to get you into the store, and not available for delivery.

    Still, it's basically a stealth price cut - AMD trying to avoid sabotaging its perceived value while tacitly acknowledging that the market ain't what it was and won't be for a while.

    And it's likely to be the fastest desktop CPU around for a couple of years. Intel's Meteor Lake range should be out this year but may be only for laptops, and AMD isn't expecting Zen 5 to be ready until next year.

  • Mission accomplished. (BBC)

    That tiny deadly radioactive thingy - a quarter inch wide lost in a state encompassing a million square miles - has been found. 120 miles from its starting point it fell out of the truck and rolled off the road.

    Fortunately with suitably sensitive detectors it glows like a furnace and it had not in fact lodged in the tyres of a passing car and disappeared to parts unknown, so a few days scouring the highway waiting for the clicks to turn into a scream was enough to hunt it down.
