Apparently the top 1% of NBN users consume 1TB per month. NBN Co chief technology officer Ray Owen said during his keynote at the Broadband World Forum in Berlin that the top 14 per cent of end-users are consuming half of all data on the network. Owen also said that 4.4 million premises are now activated and that the NBN broadband access network is carrying around 30 petabytes of data every day, which is the equivalent of about 15 trillion pages of printed text.

Maybe they could store all their downloads on WD's new 15TB HDD, although you're more likely to see it in a datacentre. As an addition to the industry’s first 14TB SMR HDD family, the 15TB enterprise-class Ultrastar DC HC620 host-managed SMR HDD reflects another industry first, continuing our tradition of delivering the highest capacity enterprise-class HDDs in the market.

Also from the Press Release pile: IBM are acquiring Red Hat. "The acquisition of Red Hat is a game-changer. It changes everything about the cloud market," said Ginni Rometty, IBM Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "IBM will become the world's #1 hybrid cloud provider, offering companies the only open cloud solution that will unlock the full value of the cloud for their businesses. Discussion in this thread.

We think of GPUs as being for gaming, but of course they are also used for 3D rendering. Techgage looked into AMD Radeon ProRender performance, while LegitReviews looked at GeForce RTX performance in RedShift's benchmark. Techgage follow up with GeForce RTX in Octane, Redshift and V-Ray. We don’t have Quadro RTX in the house for testing (yet), but we do have GeForce RTX, and in case you were wondering: they do in fact work just fine for workstation use. We’re pitting the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, 2080, and 2070 (among eight others) against OctaneRender, Redshift, and V-Ray.

Meanwhile BabelTechReviews have an RTX 2070 vs GTX 1080 overclocking showdown using 35 games. Aside from its obvious better “looks” and backplate of the all-metal build of the Founders Edition versus the more plastic-looking and raw PCB back of the Black, is the Founders Edition worth $100 more in overclocked performance? We are also going to compare the overclocked performance of our two RTX 2070s versus the GTX 1080 Founders Edition to see how it fares when fully overclocked.

Self-driving cars have taken another step, with Tesla rolling out Navigate on Autopilot. Navigate on Autopilot is an active guidance feature for Enhanced Autopilot that, with driver supervision, guides a car from a highway’s on-ramp to off-ramp, including suggesting and making lane changes, navigating highway interchanges, and taking exits. It’s designed to make finding and following the most efficient path to your destination even easier on the highway when Autopilot is in use.
