Daily Tech News 26 January 2022

Top Story

  • The new mobile chips from AMD have started showing up in benchmarks.

    The Ryzen 6900HX is reportedly 11% faster on single-threaded tests and 28% faster multi-threaded than the 5900HX. (Tom's Hardware)

    Which is interesting because it's basically the same Zen 3 core, just built using TSMC's 6nm process, which is really just a tweaked version of 7nm. The performance gains seem to be efficiency gains - the older chip was limited by the heat and power constraints of a laptop, and the newer chip less so.

    If this benchmark bears out, it puts Zen 3+ laptop chips on par with current Zen 3 desktop chips, at less than half the power consumption.


  • Intel's Core i9 12900HK is even faster. (Tom's Hardware)

    But it takes the opposite approach. If you read past the shiny benchmark scores and get to the battery life test, when comparing the same Alienware laptop with 11th and 12th generation Intel CPUs, the battery life has dropped from 4h31m to 2h58m.

    A huge 17" laptop is going to spend most of its time parked on a desk anyway so that might not matter to you, though you should expect 12th gen laptops to run hotter and louder as well as faster.

7 Morning, folken!

I loved the ONT story about the CA advocate of electric cars who couldn't manage to charge her electric car. Very much like these rabid vax people who turn around and get COVID. We used to call that being hoist on your own petard. Heh, heh, heh. . . .

Up early to work out, though I don't feel much like it. Chekov the Ailing Codger Cat is eating again -- at least he devoured the Rx food from last night and a bit of people tunafish I left on a separate plate. His gabapentin will now go onto his inner ear skin instead of as a crushed pill in his food. I hope this works.

You got to saddle up your boys, you got to draw a hard line. When the gun smoke settles we'll sing a victory tune. And we'll all meet back at the local saloon.

73 Chip shortages are expected to last into the second half of 2022 says the US Department of Commerce.

I'm trying to figure out what business finds this information useful and actionable.

If your business relies on semiconductors, then your supply engineers, if they are worth keeping as employees, already have written countless reports on the matter. If they haven't then management hasn't been doing their jobs in forecasting production and sales.

Some bland announcement by government drones who are usually the last to know about supply chain issues, have no skin in the game since their paychecks will cash no matter if the world is operating under Trump or is a massive inferno; they can't possibly understand the myriad of relationships, nor the plethora of injections of chaos and FUD that governments poison commerce with on a daily basis.

81 I have been trying to understand supply-chain woes as of late, and what I knew yesterday is obsolete today.

Just trying to understand Turkey's problems in their inability to secure enough natural gas this season. The dominos that fall, combined with myopic political decisions that are guaranteed to make a bad situation worse.... (sigh)

We should start a dead pool on countries.

I was thinking about this question for the last week in view of the globally collapsing supply chain. A highly complex mixture of long term policies (eg. Green Energy) to moment by moment knee jerk reactions (eg. Vaxx or Be Canceled) that tear up everyone's near and far plans and effect individuals and whole nations.

I'm thinking that the Great Reset is a diversion. Each nation is a member of the Jim Jones cult. Though different, we all are drinking the same poison.

90 Even the approaches to "Why is the Supply Chain Failing" are wildly different based on whatever expert you are listening to at the moment. And even this expert, if he is honest (or trying to keep an audience who is seeing the dissonance), will probably be making day-by-day alterations if not wholesale changes..

The chief problem I see is that we falsely assume that people are good actors and work under good intentions - sort of the Ayn Rand model, and that government is the key problem. Rand didn't seem to fully grasp the concept of regulatory capture, and the tail wagging the dog. Rand also didn't fully grasp the concept that people hate to work and would rather have the grift of someone else's money do the work for them.

I don't know how that can be fixed, or how to tie off the hemorrhage from bleeding the entire body dry.

Doing so would send an important signal that no one is exempt from the rules - even if they are celebrities and have lots of Twitter followers. It's a message many people in our society need to hear right now.
People like Palin are, by every definition, extremely influential. When they're not required to follow the rules put in place to protect the public - like when they're allowed to eat in a restaurant without producing a vaccine card - it sends an especially powerful signal to their followers that such behavior is OK.

-The author's additional example is all of the other democrats who flaunt these rules that they themselves put in place. Just kidding. No, it is the FB Xcheck system the "whistleblower" exposed that allowed republicans to spread vaccine misinformation.

100 For example, I've been haunted by the near destruction of Texas from last February's deep freeze. Allegedly customers of ERCOT were literally minutes from a collapse that would have destroyed the grid that would require weeks and months to restore. I couldn't imagine a few days without power and seeing the chaos, let alone depending completely on China to supply the transformers and other major power equipment to a region that went Mad Max weeks earlier especially since it takes upwards of a year or two to get custom transformers.

The former United States doesn't make them anymore. Just like we don't even make our own aspirin. The vulnerabilities we have to China is like the vulnerability that Jerusalem had to Nebuchadnezzar and later in 70AD to Rome. It takes nothing to sow chaos, and a siege to complete the destruction.

111 I don't know anything about Joe Rogan except that he speaks critically of the gene therapy, yes?

Former MMA fighter, later announcer, later stand-up comic, later podcaster who has interesting guests and who knows to ask an open-ended question and then shutting the heck up to let the guest speak.

I guess this format is appreciated by a wide and diverse audience. Sort of the exact opposite of Rush Limbaugh, with the only thing in common is that the two had large audiences based on a relationship model. They both felt genuine.

This is what makes Rogan dangerous. He is influential because people trust him and the guests, by association are considered trust-worthy.

It also helps that having both Dr. Peter McCullough and Dr. Robert Malone on providing well articulated counter narrative of The Establishment's depopulation effort to strike fear and hatred in the Orchs.

112 The Texan debacle last winter was especially egregious, because they are largely on their own grid system. Naturally the nutbars in the "news" tried to turn this around bass ackwards.

The failure or inability to supply natural gas through pipelines to gas-fired generators was pointedly idiotic beyond compare.

It was hilarious, by removing coal the simplest and most durable power source to keep the rest of the grid functioning they made in functionally a glass cannon.

115 This is what always gets me about power grids. That you can have a failure which "destroys the entire grid that will take months to restore".

Mostly because of frequency issues. For example, Texas legislature invited Big Tech in to cause irreparable harm to the grid by adding chaotic and unreliable wind and solar. Wind and Solar are not timed well on the grid and thus need gas fired peaker plants to maintain voltage and frequency. Early on there was a mismatch because too much unreliable, not enough fast acting CSGT. (we had reliable coal and nukes that don't respond well to change in demand).

Frequency mismatch causes heat, heat causes breakdowns in the insulation and cooling fluids (made inefficient due to EPA regs). When you blow a transformer of the size needed in major distribution areas, you need a custom replacement which takes a year to design, order, build, transport and deploy.

February's demand would have produced a frequency mismatch which would have destroyed a lot of transformers.

119 The failure or inability to supply natural gas through pipelines to gas-fired generators was pointedly idiotic beyond compare.

Home heating/cooking gets first dibs on natural gas. This is a huge reason why governments are banning natural gas in new construction.

The National Weather Service predicted the exact opposite weather for February so many power generators, after last summer's beat-down, scheduled with ERCOT to go offline for maintenance. With temps predicted to be in the 60s and 70s this would have been an ideal time.

Then we find out that the NWS's obsession with jacked climate and weather data makes their prediction algorithms absolutely worthless if not catastrophically dangerous. That is why the NWS forecasts are pure junk and have dropped greatly in quality over the years.

That is not exactly true, FERC is its own government and operates without any practical oversight - specifically to avoid political abuse.

The problem is, that over time, like any bureaucratic organization, activists infiltrate and cause whole new dysfunctions and pathologies. Sec of Energy Rick Perry fought to get FERC to allow on-site fuel storage but FERC told him to pound sand. FERC was also asked by ERCOT for special dispensation to spin up "non compliant" power generators. FERC told them to fuck-off.

FERC would rather see catastrophic failure and mass death than allow a two week increase in CO2 and SO production.

Made it to work -- not that it was all that onerous, no flooding rain or anything. I stopped to fill up: $28 for 8.6 gallons (4.5 of those were ethanol free, so more expensive than the regular E10). The big Buick is remarkable as to how little fuel it uses for its size.

I'm considering calling in sick tomorrow and Friday. Once upon a time, as some of us remember, employers wanted you to come in even if you had yellow fever. Now, if you mention so much as a sniffle, "Stay home!!! Stay home!!!" So it won't be difficult to manage. My boss has little on his calendar, with something marked "Travel" for most of the day Friday. And the items I'm trying to clear off my desk and computer can wait until Monday.

Its complicated. You could have conservative people brought in and get the "Don't Name The Fuel" sort of policies due to an undeveloped and unsophisticated understanding of "free market forces".

"Don't Name The Fuel" is a policy that prohibits energy reliability councils to reward on-site storage of oil and coal to power generators because the Free Market thinkers at FERC would consider that local policy putting a thumb on the scales of market competition.

Then you have appointments made by Leftist regimes and you get the "Low CO2 numbers are more sacred than life itself" suicide cabal in bureaucratic positions of power.
