No I would never do that to you. This weekend, I'm reading two Bujolds and a butcher to read. To give you an idea of how busy I have been, I haven't read Peace Talks or Battle Ground. Intel's DG1 discrete graphics processor is shipping now. (AnandTech) It's not sold as a card or laptop manufacturer. I don't believe that laptops themselves have shipped yet, so no benchmarks. In terms of benchmarks, the Ryzen 5600X is extremely fast. (Tom's Hardware) It's amazing if this is true. (CPUBenchmark) The multi-threaded performance appears plausible, however the single-threaded performance comes as a complete surprise. ALICEPOPKORN It's only one benchmark, and it's possible that this benchmark performs particularly well on Zen 3. Passmark scores are very closely linked to Python performance of code. This makes it a valuable benchmark. If it holds up, AMD's 6 core processor will offer 110% single-threaded performance, and 94% multi-threaded speed compared to Intel's flagship 10900K. It's more efficient than an 18-core Xeon Gold 6140. It would also be a major upgrade over my current Ryzen 1700. You must read the fine print even if it says Ships from and sold by Amazon. No, I didn't burn - this doesn't apply to the model with 400GB that seems to be authentic. If you search for SanDisk microSD cards on Amazon AU, everything smaller than 400GB has that weird disclaimer: - This is an aftermarket of generic part. Ubuntu 20.10 is available, with a Raspberry Pi edition. (Tom's Hardware) It was there and I wanted to be sure. I need to install a new Linux VM on New Spare Laptop because the previous one was a mess. In the case of spare laptops, it appears that Old Spare Laptop has exactly the same problem with its battery as New Spare Laptop. With Old Spare Laptop there's also a loose connection, which coupled with the failing battery means it's unreliable even when it's plugged in. It appears that the issue is in the charger cable and not the laptop. I remembered that I had a different charger with exactly the same plug, so I switched the two and it worked. At the very least, until you disconnect it, at which point it dies instantly. In Hololive news Gawr Gura reached 1 million subscribers and Mori Calliope hit 500k during the same Minecraft collab stream (which I caught live), and Calliope was the number one iTunes album worldwide on the same day. Coco is back to insult her fans, and HololiveCN is being granted independence. The HoloCN girls are being given the full rights to their characters, so they can become independently. China is too dangerous for Cover to want to deal with at the moment, especially with the runaway success of HoloEN. Anemoia is the feeling of nostalgia for things you never experienced. (Wiktionary) Not to be confused with Amemoia which is the way Gura feels about Watson. Huawei has launched their Mate 40 series powered by the new Kirin 9000. (AnandTech) The most notable feature of the Kirin 9000 is a huge Mali G78MP24. My Mediapad M3 has the Kirin 9000 with a Mali T880MP4, which is six times faster than it was before clock speed and architectural enhancements. To buy a Mate 40 would be insane. It's not affordable, and doesn't even include Google services, and the CPU - made on TSMC's new 5nm process has already been discontinued due to US sanctions on Huawei.
