If you have an opinion on how the For Sale forums are going on OCAU, head over to this thread where clrobbo is running a poll and discussion.

Intel have suffered a major data breach, thanks Rodney. Intel on Thursday was hit by a massive data-breach, with someone on Twitter posting links to an archive that contains the dump of the breach - a 20-gigabyte treasure chest that includes - but not limited to - Intel Management Engine bringup guides, flashing tools, samples; source code of Consumer Electronics Firmware Development Kit (CEFDK); silicon and FSP source packages for various platforms; an assortment of development and debugging tools; Simics simulation for "Rocket Lake S" and other platforms; a wealth of roadmaps and other documents; shcematics, documents, tools, and firmware for "Tiger Lake," Intel Trace Hub + decoder files for various Intel ME versions; "Elkhart Lake" silicon reference and sample code; Bootguard SDK, "Snow Ridge" simulator; design schematics of various products; etc. More info here.

AMD meanwhile continue to gain market share. AMD's Cinderella story continued today with a report from Mercury Research, one of the chip industry's premier market analyst firms, that indicates AMD had reached 18.3% of the overall x86 share and 19.7% of the client market. That's the company's highest share since the fourth quarter of 2013 and the first quarter of 2012, respectively. The company also broke its all-time record for notebook market share.

Intel recently reported record earnings, so it's not all bad news. Kicking off another earnings season for the tech industry, we once again have Intel, who is reporting their financial results for the second quarter of the year. This is the first full coronavirus-impacted quarter for the company and the tech industry as a whole, but if you were looking solely at Intel’s results, you wouldn’t know there’s a pandemic going on: the company posted yet another record quarter, delivering their highest Q2 revenues ever with a sizable profit margin riding on top of that.

TechSpot have a "gone but not forgotten" article series, with 3Dfx Interactive and OCZ Technology some of the first brands covered. In September 2012, founder and CEO Ryan Petersen resigned from the company. Accounting and other legal issues would plague the business over the next year and in late 2013, it was revealed that Toshiba had agreed to buy nearly all of OCZ’s assets for $35 million. Toshiba said it would continue to run the business as a subsidiary called OCZ Storage Solutions. The Japanese tech giant did release some new OCZ-branded drives but ultimately, OCZ was dissolved and absorbed into Toshiba's memory group, later named Kioxia.

It's Woz's 70th Birthday, or at least it is in the USA as I write this, and his website has all kinds of shenanigans happening over the next day or eleven. Join our 11 Days of Wozdom for daily chances to win signed Apple products, merch, and a Twitter shoutout from Woz! Challenges begin Aug 11th after the stream.

Finally, here's an interesting video sent in by w0ng explaining why rollback netcode in games is better than delay-based netcode. I didn't even know what that meant before watching that video but it makes sense now.

Retro Racing August 2020 - 1NSANE (2 Comments) (link)
 Wednesday, 5-August-2020  23:19:40 (GMT +10) - by Agg

This month's Retro Racing game is 1NSANE by Codemasters. Players can drive cars of their choices in either of nine events, which include Capture the Flag, Jamboree, Gate Hunt, Destruction Zone, Pathfinder, Off-Road Racing, Return the Flag, and Free Roam. Highlights for me is the excellent multiplayer mayhem in the capture the flag mode.

Telstra had some DNS issues on the weekend which were, no wait, weren't, caused by a DDoS. "The massive messaging storm that presented as a Denial of Service cyber-attack has been investigated by our security teams and we now believe that it was not malicious, but a Domain Name Server issue. We're really sorry for getting in the way of your weekend plans," the telco posted on social media. Another reason to use and/or

While I'm clearing out the news box, AMD announced some Threadripper Pro CPUs recently, to battle Intel's Xeons in the workstation market. More info on and Anandtech. The top processor, the 3995WX, will offer all 64-cores. It goes above and beyond the traditional top EPYC 7742 (225 W, 2.25 GHz / 3.4 GHz) and even the 7H12 (280 W, 2.6 GHz / 3.3 GHz), by offering more base frequency at 2.7 GHz and a much higher turbo frequency at 4.2 GHz for 280W TDP. These processors might be taking advantage of the same manufacturing update as provided by the recent Ryzen 3000XT processors in order to drive these higher frequencies.

On a related note, anrke pointed out that the 896-core DooM Task Manager from last week is bogus, perhaps unsurprisingly. As I said at the time I couldn't imagine what platform they could be running it on, with that many cores.. oh well. :)

TechSpot look back at the Far Cry / Crysis series. Every once in a while though, a game is made that becomes part of the industry's history, and we still talk about them or play them years after they first appeared. For PC gamers, there's one title that's almost legendary thanks to its incredible, ahead-of-its-time graphics and ability to grind PCs into single digit frame rates. Later on, for providing a decade-plus worth of memes. Join us as we take a look back at Crysis and see what made it so special.

Here's a grownup-size Lego go-kart. Putting hundreds of hours into creating a giant Lego set and then not being able to actually play with it because you’re too tall undoubtedly takes some of the fun out of the process, so this time around Denton made a Lego go-kart large enough for even him to climb behind the wheel.

NASA have launched their Perseverence Rover to Mars. Interestingly, it was actually the commercial launch service United Launch Alliance that provided the launch vehicle and operations. Turns out they've done quite a few launches that way. Also, this is intended to be part of a mission to return samples from Mars for the first time. NASA's Mars 2020 Perseverance rover mission is on its way to the Red Planet to search for signs of ancient life and collect samples to send back to Earth.

Intel's difficulties with 7nm continue. Intel announced today in its Q2 2020 earnings release that it has now delayed the rollout of its 7nm CPUs by six months relative to its previously-planned release date, undoubtedly resulting in wide-ranging delays to the company's roadmaps. Intel's press release also says that yields for its 7nm process are now twelve months behind the company's internal targets, meaning the company isn't currently on track to produce its 7nm process in an economically viable way. The company now says its 7nm CPUs will not debut on the market until late 2022 or early 2023.

NVIDIA meanwhile are breaking AI benchmark records. For the third time in a row, NVIDIA ran a clean sweep of MLPerf's set of AI and machine learning performance benchmarking suite. This time, however, the distinction of fastest GPU went to NVIDIA's A100 Tensor Core graphics solution, which is based on the company's 7-nanometer Ampere architecture that was recently introduced.

Windows 10 recently turned five years old. Windows 10 came out on this day in 2015, the same year that Uptown Funk had reached No. 1. For the first year, Microsoft officially offered the OS as a free upgrade to Windows 7 and Windows 8 users, in pursuit of reaching a billion active devices within 2-3 years. Microsoft ultimately missed its goal, but did get there earlier this year (in March).

Aussie Broadband have apparently booted the 35TB bandit. This week Aussie Broadband’s managing director Phil Britt revealed one user chugged 34TB in a month. Britt said the culprit would soon be hearing from the telco regarding its fair use policy. It’s made good on its promise too, because the bandit’s connection was just cancelled.

It's been quite a while since I've done Retro Misc Pics, and frankly time has completely got away from me this week, so here's the Misc Pics from April 2010, when we apparently had six posts for some reason:

The last Qantas 747 has headed off to the USA for retirement, and they left a message in the sky as part of the final flight. Qantas's last passenger jumbo jet, the Boeing 747, has departed Australia for the final time, with the "Queen of the Skies" leaving one last flourish — drawing a kangaroo over the Pacific Ocean.

TechSpot compare Intel Core i3 vs. Core i5 vs. Core i7 vs. Core i9. Do you need to buy a Core i9 for gaming, and is a Core i3 sufficient for general desktop work? How about upgrading to a Core i5, how much faster is that? Our CPU reviews provide more than enough data to answer those questions, but this review will serve as a great reference for those wanting to compare Intel Core i3, i5, i7 and i9 processors directly.

Meanwhile AMD has released some Ryzen 4000 CPUs for the desktop. Today is a big day for AMD, as the company looks to spread the reach of its powerful 7nm Zen 2 processor architecture to additional segments. We’ve seen Zen 2 make waves in the server (EPYC 7xx2), HEDT workstation (Threadripper 3000/Threadripper Pro 3000), consumer desktop (Ryzen 3000), and the laptop (Ryzen 4000) markets over the past year. The latest extensions of the Zen 2 family are Ryzen 4000 processors targeting the consumer desktop market.

JEDEC recently released the DDR5 spec. Originally planned for release in 2018, today’s release of the DDR5 specification puts things a bit behind JEDEC’s original schedule, but it doesn’t diminish the importance of the new memory specification. Like every iteration of DDR before it, the primary focus for DDR5 is once again on improving memory density as well as speeds. JEDEC is looking to double both, with maximum memory speeds set to reach at least 6.4Gbps while the capacity for a single, packed-to-the-rafters LRDIMM will eventually be able to reach 2TB.

A 15-year-old "hacker" from Western Australia is in some hot water for publishing insecure WA Health pages. An unencrypted pager network had been used by WA Health for more than 12 years before it was accessed by a 15-year-old boy from Mandurah, who published confidential messages for months before police intervened on Monday night.

I dunno what the heck they're running it on, but here's DooM on 896 cores in Task Manager. Playing Doom in Windows task manager. Finally got it working and looking decent! But can it run Crysis?

July Retro Racing - Carmageddon TDR2000 (4 Comments) (link)
 Sunday, 19-July-2020  11:22:24 (GMT +10) - by Agg

The Retro Racing game for July 2020 is Carmageddon TDR2000, from 2000. In Carmageddon, the player races a vehicle against a number of other computer controlled competitors in various settings, including city, mine and industrial areas. The player has a certain amount of time to complete each race, but more time may be gained by collecting bonuses, damaging the competitors' cars, or by running over pedestrians.

I was dismayed to hear that Grant Imahara has died suddenly from an aneurysm, aged 49. He was clearly a great enthusiast and engineer, and always seemed like a genuinely nice guy. Grant Imahara, an electrical engineer best known as part of the build team on the long-running Discovery series MythBusters, died Monday, The New York Times reports. He was 49. A representative for Discovery confirmed Imahara’s death, with the cause believed to be a brain aneurysm. No other details were available. On social media, Imahara’s MythBusters colleagues paid tribute to him. Adam Savage, one of the show’s co-hosts, wrote: “I’m at a loss. No words. I’ve been part of two big families with Grant Imahara over the last 22 years. Grant was a truly brilliant engineer, artist and performer, but also just such a generous, easygoing and gentle person. Working with Grant was so much fun. I’ll miss my friend.”

NVIDIA has apparently overtaken Intel as the most valuable US chipmaker. In a semiconductor industry milestone, Nvidia’s shares rose 2.3% in afternoon trading on Wednesday to a record $404, putting the graphic component maker’s market capitalization at $248 billion, just above the $246 billion value of Intel, once the world’s leading chipmaker.

Westpac have backed Code Camp for Victorian kids stuck in lockdown. Westpac group chief information officer Craig Bright said on LinkedIn that from Tuesday 20,000 places will be made available on the platform for Victorian school children aged 7-12. Eligible students will be given a free, hour-long session on the platform led by an instructor during the extended school holiday period as much of the state reverts to high levels of social isolation due to a resurgence of COVID-19.

On a more positive note, there's some new Far Side comics. I don’t want to mislead anyone here. This corner of the website—“New Stuff”—is not a resurrection of The Far Side daily cartoons. (Well, not exactly, anyway—like the proverbial tiger and its stripes, I’m pretty much stuck with my sense of humor. Aren’t we all?)
