  1. Floatplane download file names

    We're aware of the issue. I can't remember the specific reason we're still doing it this way, but there IS one. It's something we WILL fix eventually, but please bear with us Linus
  2. We do know that there are issues with floatplane's presentation, but the reality is that it's not ready for primetime yet, and we'd rather wait until it is to start banging a drum about it. I'm really glad to hear that you've heard about it and that you're interested though

Base clock: 2.9 GHz Turbo Boost: 4.8 Ghz TDP: 45W 9to5 Mac tested thermal throttling by exporting videos from Final Cut Pro X The video was 4 min, 4K, 60 FPS The video exported in 5 mins 30s Throttling was severe enough to knock the CPU down to idle (800MHz) The cheapest Core i9 MacBook Pro is $2,700. If you max out the GPU, RAM, and SSD, the price is nearly $7000 after tax. Fellow tech youtuber David Lee made a video that shows the Mac running Adobe Premiere Pro at clock speeds of only around 2.2GHz rather than the advertised 2.9GHz speed. "Forget about Turbos and all that stuff, it can't even maintain the 2.9GHz base clock, which is absurd. This CPU is an unlocked, over-clockable chip, but all of that CPU potential is wasted inside this chassis, or more the thermal solution that's inside here." New MacBook Pro Keyboard DOES have crumb protection Source 1: https://www.macrumors.com/2018/07/19/apple-confirms-2018-mbp-keyboard-prevents-debris/ Source 2: In an internal document distributed to Apple Authorized Service Providers, Apple has confirmed that the third-generation keyboard on 2018 MacBook Pro models is equipped with a "membrane" to "prevent debris from entering the butterfly mechanism." Publicly, Apple has only confirmed that 2018 MacBook Pro models feature an "improved third-generation keyboard for quieter typing," but many suspected that the silicon membrane was actually to prevent "contaminant ingress" aka crumbs Third-generation keyboards will not be offered as replacements under its service program for 2016 and 2017 MacBook Pro second-generation keyboard repairs Ryzen 3000 series might have more than 8 cores Source 1: 19_blackie_73 https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/949649-ryzen-3000-series-might-have-more-than-8-cores/ Source 2: https://www.techpowerup.com/246100/msi-drops-first-hint-of-amd-increasing-am4-cpu-core-counts MSI may have dropped the first hint that AMD is bringing more than 8 cores to the socket AM4 mainstream-desktop platform, mentioning that their upcoming motherboards based on the AMD B450 chipset support 8-core "and up" CPU in a marketing video. AMD will get its next opportunity to tinker with its CPU micro-architecture with "Zen 2," being built on the 7 nm silicon fabrication process. If AMD decides to stick with the CCX approach to multi-core processors, the company could increase per-CCX core counts. A 50 percent core-count increase enables 12-core processors, while a 100 percent increase brings 16-cores to the AM4 platform. The MSI video confirms that these >8-core processors will have backwards-compatibility with existing 400-series chipsets, even if they launch alongside newer 500-series chipset.

Google fined $5 billion by EU Source 1: SC2Mitch https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/949115-update-google-to-be-fined-5-billion-dollars-by-the-eu-for-breaching-antitrust-laws/ Source 2: https://www.theverge.com/2018/7/18/17580694/google-android-eu-fine-antitrust Google has been hit with a record-breaking €4.3 billion ($5 billion) fine by EU regulators for breaking antitrust laws. The European Commission says Google has abused its Android market dominance in three key areas: bundling its search engine and Chrome apps into the operating system. blocking phone makers from creating devices that run forked versions of Android Google “did not provide any credible evidence that Android forks would be affected by technical failures or fail to support apps.” making “payments to certain large manufacturers and mobile network operators” to exclusively bundle the Google search app on handsets. The European Commission wants Google to bring its “illegal conduct to an end in an effective manner within 90 days of the decision.” Google will need to stop forcing manufacturers to preinstall Chrome and Google search in order to offer the Google Play Store on handsets. Google now says it will appeal the decision.

LPDDR5 is so cutting edge that the standard itself has yet to be completed; the JEDEC standards group has not yet finalized the specifications for DDR5 or LPDDR5. Samsung is targeting up to 6.4Gbps/pin with the new memory. for a typical 32-bit bus chip, that works out to 25.6GB/sec of memory bandwidth. This is a 50% increase in bandwidth over the current LPDDR4(X) standard, which tops out at 4.266Gbps under the same conditions. a high-end phone where 64-bit memory buses are common, you’d be looking at over 50GB/sec of memory bandwidth, and over 100GB/sec for a standard 128-bit bus PC. Samsung’s LPDDR5 has a single 32-bit (x32) memory channel, with 16 banks in that channel the memory still has a prefetch of 16n, the same as LPDDR4 Differential clocking New bill moves to make Net Neutrality a Law Source 1: rcmaehl https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/948841-move-over-fcc-guidelines-new-bill-moves-to-make-net-neutrality-a-law/ Source 2: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-internet/house-republican-backs-effort-to-restore-net-neutrality-rules-idUSKBN1K71F7 Republican Representative Mike Coffman of Colorado is introducing legislation to enshrine net neutrality rules into law.

Fans praised its ability to showcase a wide range of stories, characters and even genres. The Clone Wars was cancelled after Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm, with a final batch of episodes known as “The Lost Missions” airing on Netflix. Characters and story elements were subsequently incorporated into the animated series Star Wars Rebels — and even into the latest film, Solo Yesterday at San Diego Comic-Con, Lucasfilm announced that The Clone Wars will return for 12 more episodes, which will air on Disney’s upcoming streaming service.

This Alternate Mode of USB-C simplifies and speeds up VR setup time, avoiding key obstacles to VR adoption. It also brings immersive VR experiences to smaller devices with fewer ports, such as thin and light notebooks. VirtualLink connects with VR headsets to simultaneously deliver four high-speed HBR3 DisplayPort lanes, which are scalable for future needs; a USB3.1 data channel for supporting high-resolution cameras and sensors; and up to 27 watts of power.

This launch is one phase of Google’s overall Site Isolation project. Stay tuned for additional security updates that will mitigate attacks beyond Spectre (e.g., attacks from fully compromised renderer processes). Site Isolation is a large change to Chrome's architecture that limits each renderer process to documents from a single site. Note that Chrome uses a specific definition of "site" that includes just the scheme and registered domain. Thus, https://google.co.uk would be a site, and subdomains like https://maps.google.co.uk would stay in the same process. As a result, Chrome can rely on the operating system to prevent attacks between processes, and thus, between sites. Site Isolation causes Chrome to create more renderer processes, which comes with performance tradeoffs: on the plus side, each renderer process is smaller, shorter-lived, and has less contention internally... but there is about a 10-13% total memory overhead in real workloads due to the larger number of processes.

All regions experienced some growth compared with a year ago. Analysts say PC shipment growth in the second quarter of 2018 was driven by demand in the business market, which was offset by declining shipments in the consumer segment "In the consumer space... Consumers are using their smartphones for even more daily tasks, such as checking social media, calendaring, banking and shopping, which is reducing the need for a consumer PC.” "In the business segment, PC momentum will weaken in two years when the replacement peak for Windows 10 passes.
