  • Nvidia had its big announcement. (AnandTech)

    Lots of stuff, but the most immediately interesting are the RTX 4080 and 4090. (Tom's Hardware)

    The 4090, launching October 12, has twice the performance of the 3090 Ti - from 40 TFLOPs to over 80 TFLOPs - while being 20% cheaper. Which would be more impressive if the 3090 Ti hadn't been priced at $2000.

    The 4080 will arrive in November in two models, with 12GB of RAM and 40 TFLOPs at $900, and 16GB of RAM and 48 TFLOPs at $1200. That's a significant difference; either the 16GB model should be called the 4080 Ti or the 12GB model should be the 4070 Ti.

    While the base 4080 has the same compute power as the 3090 Ti at less than half the price, it also has half the memory and half the memory bandwidth. Nvidia is making up for that by increasing the on-chip cache from 6MB to 48MB (and 96MB on the 4090).

    AMD did that with the Radeon RX 6000 range, and it worked pretty well. The options for doubling bandwidth over the 3090 Ti are pretty much restricted to HBM, which isn't exactly cheap. On the other hand, moving from Samsung's 8nm process to TSMC's 4nm meant Nvidia had a huge number of transistors to play with - up from 28 billion on the 3090 Ti to 76 billion on the 4090 - so using five billion or so on cache was not a hard call to make.

    While $900 for the smaller RTX 4080 looks good compared to the $2000 3090 Ti, it doesn't look nearly so good when compared with the $700 RTX 3080, and gamers don't seem to be happy. It's about 30% more expensive and offers about 30% more performance.

I need to get ready to work out. As I mentioned on the ONT, my councilman wants to do a walk-through of my apartment to see the atrocious conditions at 11:30, so I'm calling in sick today. Extra time for breakfast, reading, and posting.

7 Apparently Intel is rebranding its Celeron, Pentium, and Atom chips as Intel Processors. This should be entertaining. An Intel Processor is an Intel processor while a Core processor is not an Intel Processor but is an Intel processor. I think it would have been a lot clearer if they had rebranded all of them to Can'tAffordCore processors.

9 And, in the interest of actual productive advice, the best deal for storage off a hard drive, is HP 10-packs of USBs. About -$30@10, it's a terrific way to do it. Only problem is they all look the same so invest in paint markers, a file system of some kind involving a list, and a tackle box.

10 The Windows 11 2022 update is in the wild. One of my machines updated and the other for some mysterious Microsoft reason is not allowed to to participate yet. One feature that will be useful is the start menu can now have folders. And because folders are cool, the file explorer apparently now allows folders but I haven't played with that yet. Apparently you can also drag files down onto the task bar. And then there's a host of other things that I don't know about yet.

25 Ive been getting those retro computer pages popping up on Instagram for me the last few days, and it does have me nostalgic for a time when getting a 2x cd-rom drive was something to dream about.

I mean at that time going to a computer store was something to look forward to. Sure it was an hour drive away, but you could see the newest version of Encarta, and it was a trip for ther whole family. Now I want to kill myself even imagining having to go in to a best buy.

This also reminds me, I too probably have half a million unused floppy disks.

My Microsoft co-workers be like , "UNIX, those were the guys that got their balls cut off right?" A few months later I was one of those people. In the end Microsoft was a great career.

Early memory: My aunt has worked for UofL UCS for... 40 years? I was maybe 8ish and she took me in to work on a weekend. It was shadowy. Terminals everywhere, but t was an office environment. Black screens with yellow/amber type. I am guessing IBM 101 keyboards. As I type on the same type of keyboard right now, I am wondering about how memory works. I have no idea why we were there. I vaguely remember it must have been a Saturday because there was no one else there and the main lights were off. Maybe my parents were just getting me out of the house, but my sister was not with us.

33 After seeing that kickstarter amount i looked at the list of highest crowd funding projects, and it seems creating a blockchain doohickey might be as good of a scam as creating a coin itself. There's dozens and dozens of projects that have raised over $20 million or so having to do with creating decentralized this or that, and basically none of them addres anywhere near done.

So I'm guessing Pixy is right, so many of these projects addres just ways to continually get paid as you string everyone along.

Looks like the only projects over like $15 million that actually were completed were the Glowforge and a TV show about Jesus.

34 My new Pixel 6a showed up today. The reason I bought it is for some mysterious reason Google gave me a $300 credit for my Pixel 3AXL which is worth 25 bucks anyplace else on the planet. All said and done this phone will cost me $180. Over the years I've come up with a standard set up for my phones which is really great because if I need to I can just pop the sim out of one and pop it in the next one and boom same environment. The downside is it takes me like six or seven hours to set up a phone. Big rule in life: making something simple to use is hard . So far the Tensor cpu is snappy snd the antennas are noticeably better than what was my daily driver, a Pixel 4a 5G.

70 However, the activities of the BfV running hundreds of right-wing extremist accounts have come to light at the same time that Germany’s left-wing government has labeled right-wing extremism the biggest threat to the country, despite data showing that left-wing extremists and radical Islam pose bigger threats. The country’s interior minister, Nancy Faeser, has launched a 10-point plan to fight “right-wing extremism,” and much like the Biden administration in the United States, has turned the domestic security state against political opponents and labeled them terrorism threats and a danger to democracy. In Germany’s case, the opposition conservative Alternative for Germany party (AfD) is actively surveilled in certain federal states, with membership in the party the only prerequisite for agents being able to read emails and listen in on telephone calls of private citizens.

71 With the BfV operating hundreds of right-wing extremist accounts, the agency argues that it is about “playing a little right-wing radical yourself” in order to gain the trust of other users. The employees of the Office for the Protection of the Constitution are likely to conduct “propaganda” for this and sometimes also commit crimes such as “incitement to hatred.”

81 The Food and Drug Administration has finally acknowledged its response to the US infant formula shortage was caused by a number of problems.

The agency said these included delays in processing a whistleblower complaint about bacterially tainted baby formula from the nation's largest formula factory.

That contamination is believed to have led to the illness of four infants, and the deaths of two.

The FDA seem to have not accepted The Science as it was proven at a genetic level the bacteria that made the babies sick and the bacteria found at the plant are different.

>>The FDA seem to have not accepted The Science as it was proven at a genetic level the bacteria that made the babies sick and the bacteria found at the plant are different.

The baby formula storage was brought about by an amok, out of control, power tripping agency, the fact that it's still going on and has largely fallen out of the public spotlight is telling.

It's even more telling that many donk women seemed to be more motivated and agitated by the fact that their ability to murder their infants has been constrained rather than being able to feed them.

Sad.

right- the idea was, the airship hooks on to the spire at the top of the ES Bldg, a stairway from the airship to the building roof is extended, and passengers would descent the staircase, a thousand feet in the air, down to the building

Trump got results that 70 years of Deep State would not. And I have suffered due to the Left. Unlike under Trump. He is not at all a person to venerate, like the Left and bho, but he did a lot of good in 3 years.

The people writing Star Citizen are making all the classic software development mistakes. They're behind and can't make a deadline, and instead of stripping out some features, or keeping the same features but pushing the deadline (both of which upset customers), they push the deadline and then promise even more features.

They've been doing it for years, and there's simply no way they can deliver what they've promised.

For the 1st time, I'm going spouse-less with the kids, so of course, I worried about missing the VRE train...

I'm gonna collapse tonight, I think...

PS - Note to folks. If you ever move here and want to work in DC, ride the VRE, never the Metro. The VRE is what fed-land rides to work, and thus, it stays very clean and very safe for a public transport service. It helps the ticket takers literally walk the train.

Deputy Hein-Nutz was riding her motorcycle to her job at the Weld County, Colo., jail on Sunday when Octavio Gonzalez-Garcia, an illegal immigrant in his late 30s, blew a stop sign, causing Hein-Nutz to strike the front passenger side of the van Gonzalez-Garcia was driving.
