    Bad design: VRM cooling made by marketing
    • image

      From Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Xtreme.

      Issue here is not only chunky heatsinks with small surface area. But this guys cut them with RGB shite, so only working part of heatsink is small bottom one with top one having almost no use due to extreme distance from heat source.

      Also usage of heatpipes.

      To work normally heatpipe must have one end being hot and another being cool where coolant condenses back, this is whole point of it's usage.
      If you just connect two same VRM areas (with same temperature) by heatpipe all you do is making cooling worse and spending money without reason.

    Meet the future - how most MB will look in 5 years time
    • image

      This one is for Xeons.

      Yep, 2 CPUs, 6 channel memory for both. 7 full size slots can be absent in cheap consumer MB, but all else will be same.

      Intel and AMD still want to trick people, just watch new 16 core AMD testing guides and how reviewers will tell you how nice is to have 2 channel memory (if you properly select benchmarks) . :-)

    Quality of Ricoh top management
    • “Currently, mirrorless is a newcomer, so of course many users are very interested in the new systems, they want to use [them],” Ricoh marketing general manager Hiroki Sugahara tells Imaging Resource. “But after one or two years, some users who changed their system from DSLR to mirrorless come back to the DSLR again.”

      And it is our only hope :-)

      It will be no Ricoh cameras soon.

    Capitalism: SAT score will change depending on your race, living place and income now
    • This fall, 150 colleges will start using this new metric, designed to capture students’ socioeconomic status and give context to test scores, according to The Wall Street Journal. The College Board is using a number of environmental factors that influence a student’s home and school life—including neighborhood crime rates, housing values and vacancies, the community’s average educational attainment, and poverty levels—to calculate this disadvantage level, which is scaled from 0 to 100 and is based on census data from each student’s neighborhood. Scores above 50 points indicate that the student has had to navigate more obstacles than average to get an education or have access to college, while scores below 50 signify students who have enjoyed more advantages than most of their peers. While students don’t see or know their score, admissions officers will be able to see an “environmental context dashboard,” which breaks down all the factors that go into the score.

      It is nice thing to say that instead of making real changes in life and bringing real equality they just want to change numbers. Bring more diversity. Idiots.

    Intel keeps slowing down older processor releasing holes
    • Intel has disclosed vulnerabilities called Microarchitectural Data Sampling (MDS) that apply to desktop and notebook computers with Intel CPUs, including all modern Mac computers.

      Although there are no known exploits affecting customers at the time of this writing, customers who believe their computer is at heightened risk of attack can use the Terminal app to enable an additional CPU instruction and disable hyper-threading processing technology, which provides full protection from these security issues.

      This option is available for macOS Mojave, High Sierra and Sierra and may have a significant impact on the performance of your computer.

      Testing conducted by Apple in May 2019 showed as much as a 40 percent reduction in performance with tests that include multithreaded workloads and public benchmarks. Performance tests are conducted using specific Mac computers. Actual results will vary based on model, configuration, usage, and other factors.

      And

      Microarchitectural Data Sampling (MDS) is already addressed at the hardware level in many of our recent 8th and 9th Generation Intel® Core™ processors, as well as the 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processor Family. For other affected products, mitigation is available through microcode updates, coupled with corresponding updates to operating system and hypervisor software that are available starting today.

      It is quite obvious that Intel story that they only recently became aware about it is bullshit, as we clearly see that this time all impact is on older processors and suddenly new ones do not have this "new" issue.

      It is also becoming clear why Microsoft are so eager to install Windows 10 with its automatically installed updates on all older PCs, as this will allow pair to gradually slow down your computer.

      Make sure to expect more of similar things during this year. If Intel will keep killing speculative predictions more they could drop performance further 20-30%. Next can be some hole in vector instructions to disable them for older CPUs.
