  • Big Data is dead. (Mother Duck)

    There was a movement early this millennium toward sophisticated solutions for managing big data - datasets too large to fit on a single machine. The article notes that depending on your platform this might not have been that large at the time: The original virtual server offering from Amazon came in a single size with just 2GB of RAM.

    Today you can get an EC2 instance with 24TB of RAM and 448 CPU cores. Sure, it costs $150,000 per month, but... Actually that's kind of a lot. Still probably cheaper than staffing up an entire team of engineers to manage your big data platform.

  • The Razor Blade 16 is terribly expensive but not terrible. (Hot Hardware)

    It has a 3840x2400 screen, an Intel 13950HX (8P plus 16E cores), 32GB of RAM, a mobile RTX 4090 with 16GB of VRAM (basically a 4080), and dual 1TB SSDs.

    It lacks the Four Essential Keys and costs over $4000. On the other hand it's very fast, surprisingly quiet, and has an adequate amount of memory and storage.

  • The desktop RTX 4070 and 4060 are expected by the middle of the year. (WCCFTech)

    As always, it comes down to price. The current generation of video cards are all overpriced, except perhaps Intel's A750 at $250.

  • AMD's Ryzen 7040 laptop chips don't have PCIe 5.0. (Tom's Hardware)

    Which is not in any way a surprise. There's little point to PCIe 5.0 anywhere right now, and all it would do on a laptop is decrease battery life.
