    Ordered some more LEGOs but this time online to spend some VIP points on some freebies. Only wish I can get them at the LEGO store instead of only online.

    Even if he will, it will be like in the next several years, not in 2021. What he could do, build a new factory in a month?

    That is amazing!!! I recall that LEGO Vestas Wind Turbine so it's nice to see a product made by a company you used to work for.
     
    Thank you for the work you do!

    SpiderMan reacted to kvuj in Lord of the Ring(s): Side Channel Attacks on the CPU On-Chip Ring Interconnect (currently Intel only)   
    Summary
    A completely new type of attacks has been devised which are specific to Intel CPUs (it may be possible to port to other CPUs, but requires reverse engineering of a CPU's on-chip interconnect). This whole new class of attack ignores previous ways to prevent such papers attacking CPU architectures (such as disabling SMT, cleansing microarchitectural state when context switching, etc). 
     
    The attack comes from reverse engineering the ring interconnect's protocol in order to reveal the conditions for 2 processes that will incur ring contention. It can be used to leak key bits from vulnerable EdDSA/RSA implementations and also allows the attack to get the timing of keystrokes which can be used to reconstruct passwords.
     
    To protect your program against it, you have to make your code timing-attack free (follow constant-time programming principles).

    My thoughts
    Woohoo, another vulnerability that takes advantages of hardware design, so it can't be patched. Even if we might be tired of hearing about yet another one, the depth and ingenuity of these always impress me. Even if I can't understand everything in the paper, it's a super interesting read and a reminder of the complexity of CPUs.
     
    This type of attack is currently very early in its design so it is unknown how bad it is in the grand scheme of things. I'm not super worried about the consequences of this since it will probably patched quickly in the handful programs needing a fix, but it is always interesting to remind ourselves that hackers will never stop sharpening their fangs. As such the security of systems needs to constantly evolve to keep up with the increased hostility of attacks.
     
    If this decade has thought us anything, is that CPU designs need to recieve extra care during their infancy to protect against such attacks.

    I work as a Senior Process Architect, i work mainly in mould building, so i develop and build new factories based on new technology to build moulds (the things that makes the bricks) so a lot of focus on digital manufacturing, Industry 4.0, physical production and so on. but my role is full setup so it also includes
     
    Financial setup, Organization, Strategy and so on..  (it is in my BIO)
     
    Personally i´ve always been a GIANT LEGO® fan, came from B&O and Vestas as an engineer, and have always sought towards companies where i had some sort of love for the product.
     
    Again everything i say about the product is my opinion and not the opinion of the company i work in, just to clarify.

    SpiderMan reacted to Lurick in What motherboard to buy for Ryzen 5 3600, when there is no GPU in sight?   
    All AMD motherboards have display out ports HOWEVER you need the integrated graphics which is in the CPU itself to use them. Any AMD CPU that doesn't have a G at the end will NOT output graphics otherwise without a dedicated GPU.

    SpiderMan reacted to FakeKGB in What motherboard to buy for Ryzen 5 3600, when there is no GPU in sight?   
    The Ryzen 5 3600 does not have an integrated GPU, so no, you will not be able to get a display from your 3600 without a GPU.

    Definitely try update the BIOS as it will improve stability and compatibility with RAM usually, especially after new processors were released and some boards may/may not support them.

    how much space between the bottom of the GPU shroud and the bottom of the case? As @Fasauceome mentioned, it definitively looks like your GPU is not getting any air.

    It doesn't look like the card can breathe.
     
    The card might have dry thermal paste because it is old

    Have you updated the BIOS since you bought the motherboard?
