Daily Tech News 21 April 2023

Top Story

Tech News

  • Speaking of a great weeping and a gnashing of teeth Buzzfeed News is shutting down and firing 180 staff. (Variety)

    So, first, Buzzfeed News by itself had 180 staff?

    Second, whatever you think of Buzzfeed, they actually published the Steele Dossier when everyone else was hiding it from view.

  • Is Intel's slowest CPU any good? (AnandTech)

    Yes, actually.

    The 13100F only has four cores and costs around $100 but it is faster than the eight core Ryzen 1700 I was using until last year.

    Faster than the laptop I am typing this on, faster than the Xeon E-2136 I use as a development environment, and not much slower than a 1240P laptop.

  • Speaking of 1240P laptops, I'm thinking of buying an Acer Aspire 7.

    It doesn't have a high-resolution screen, just 1080p.

    The Four Essential Keys aren't in my preferred layout.

    But it has a decent CPU (last year's i5-1240P, if you hadn't guessed), dedicated graphics (just a GTX 1650, but plenty for playing Minecraft on the go), charges over either a dedicated port or Thunderbolt / USB-C, and has easily replaceable DDR4 RAM which I already have 128GB of sitting around. Apart from the Thunderbolt port it has three USB-A ports, HDMI, and a headphone jack - and wired Ethernet, which is becoming a rarity these days. No microSD slot but I can get by without that.

    It's a bit on the big and heavy side - it's a 15" model and the same size and weight as the 16" Gigabyte Aero I like - but it also has the advantage of being around one fifth the price of the Aero.

    Which used to be a lot.

  • The RTX 4070 isn't selling so Nvidia is making less of them. (WCCFTech)

    There's more money to be made selling high-end cards at $30,00 a pop to AI nuts.

    The GPU market is AMD's to scoop up at this point but they haven't released any new cards since the 7900 XT.

  • The Asus Ally handheld game console should squish the Steam Deck in terms of performance. (WCCFTech)

    It has 8 Zen 4 CPU cores vs. 4 Zen 2 cores on the Steam Deck, and 6 RDNA3 graphics cores vs. 4 RDNA2 cores. (RDNA3 is about 30% faster than RDNA2 for a given core count.)

    Price and launch date have yet to be announced.
