    Yo, Bioshock Infinite is one of my favorite games of all time. I like the gameplay, the story, the character, and Elizabeth character actor behind the scene. I don't know when the game is going to come out but please make it quick because the cliff hanger is kinda killing me. I also hope the game studio will not going to bomb this new Bioshock game from all the anticipation and all the good talks before the game launch.

    S w a t s o n reacted to porina in Via are back with new x86 CPU architecture   
    Source: https://fuse.wikichip.org/news/3099/centaur-unveils-its-new-server-class-x86-core-cns-adds-avx-512/
     
    CHA is the codename for the chip (e.g. comparable to Matisse, Coffee Lake) and we don't know what the marketing name for actual product is yet, since this is an architecture reveal, not a product announcement. Centaur are owned by Via.
     
    We see 8 cores with something resembling a ring bus. Quad channel ram should feed that well. The AI copro branches off, as does an interchip link and southbridge including 44 PCIe 3.0 lanes. I recommend clicking through if you want the details on the architecture, but the tldr take away point is that the x86 part of the architecture is competitive to current Intel and AMD designs. They built it ground up, in a way that might be compared to how AMD bought us Ryzen.
     
    So what does this offer compared to Intel and AMD? Note this is targeted at server space, so before you declare it dead against Zen 2 offerings, consider where it is aimed at. This is the first architecture to offer AVX-512 support outside of Intel, although it is only equivalent to a one-unit AVX-512 implementation so wont see the speedups like that of Skylake-X and newer for FP64 heavy use cases. The NCORE AI copro is interesting, and will no doubt form a key part of its reason for existing. This isn't my special interest area, but Intel have VNNI as part of later AVX-512 extensions, so presumably they're going for the same market. As far as I'm aware, AMD have nothing in this area. Someone buying this is not the same person buying Epyc.
     
    Still, it is interesting to see a new design appear in the x86 area. Presuming they're targeting server applications as a profitable area first, if it goes well I wonder if there is room for them to offer cut down versions in the prosumer space.
     
    Edit 15 Dec: I missed it 1st time but the linked article claims this will be made on TSMC 16nm.

    Hell, if was fitted with Koenigsegg Regera or Bugatti Divo (aka twice the torque) it could probably race a Tesla Cybertruck!

    I just hate that they are called passive when it's really active cooling. These cards cant run with only passive heat dissipation but I guess no one wants a new word for heatsink that doesnt have a fan but requires a fan not attached to it to be blowing through it.

    I made that mistake with a Tesla once (even though it did have a case fan right behind it). It went more or less like your profile picture
