Daily Tech News 9 May 2021

Top Story
  • AMD's upcoming Rembrandt APU will feature 8 Zen 3+ cores and 12 RDNA2 GPU cores with support for PCIe 4.0, USB 4, and DDR 5 on TSMC's 6nm process unless it doesn't. (WCCFTech)

    The two big changes are the much faster integrated GPU, and the much faster DDR5 memory support to match. One isn't really much good without the other. AMD hasn't released PCIe 4.0 for laptop parts yet because of the increased power consumption, so this will be the first part with that as well.

    These are expected to arrive early next year for both laptops and desktops, with the updated Zen 4 desktop CPUs coming later in the year. Both will require new motherboards, because DDR5 memory uses a different socket. (Not unreasonable since it runs twice as fast.)

    Straight Zen 3+ CPUs have reportedly been cancelled, but this will combine Zen 3 CPU cores with RDNA 2 graphics for the first time. The new Xbox and PlayStation consoles have RDNA 2 graphics but use the older Zen 2 cores.





Notice me senpai!

Anime is Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun, a high-school romantic comedy that has that rarest of all traits - it knows when to end, and does.

I like this series because the characters aren't idiots, they just keep falling into the gap between knowing what to do and actually doing it.
