Daily Tech News 25 May 2023

Top Story

  • Another day, another mid-range video card launch. Today it's AMD's Radeon 7600. (Tom's Hardware)

    This is basically an RDNA3 respin of the previous generation's 6650 XT, with 2048 shaders and 8GB of VRAM on a 128-bit bus. That's the same memory configuration that hampers yesterday's 4060 Ti from Nvidia, and really isn't acceptable on a video card that costs $399.

    The reason I'm willing to cut AMD some slack here is that their card costs $269.

    Which even in these trying times is still less than $399.

    Personally I'd buy the current 6700 over the 7600 - it's the older RDNA2 architecture, but has 10GB of RAM on a 160-bit bus, giving it a bit of an edge. But the 7600 is an okay card at an okay price.

    Which is to say that it's a miracle of modern technology, with 13 billion transistors in a chip smaller than your thumbnail, and we should be amazed that it exists at all, never mind that it's available so readily and so cheaply.

    (My first computer had a Motorola 6845 video chip running at 3.5MHz and could be persuaded to display somewhere between 10 and 12 colours if you were really persistent.)

Unfamiliar Kettle Video of the Day

So it looks like our electric dolphin left VOMS because (a) another company waved a lot of money at her and (b) that other company has basically left its Japanese operations in the hands of a former drug-dealing Yakuza dragon who is close friends with said dolphin.

I heard the name mentioned over the past week but I've been too tied up with work to keep up to date with Vtuber corporate hijinks even when it involves some of my favourite talents.

Disclaimer: Voice, check. Kettle, check. Dayo, check. English/Japanese, check. Nope, no idea who she is.
