    Well you should try to adjust somehow, you shouldn't allow fears to stop you from enjoying fish.
    It's annoying but also really worth it for me, especially if you catch your own fish.

    This surprisingly isn't the first time Google has lost their domain. Back in 2015, they lost their .com domain to Sanmay Ved who got a nice payout for this occurring. I hope this individual also gets a nice payout from Google. You'd think that for such of a large company, they'd have auto renew on or more eyes to notice these issues.

    It's fine, all 3080s are configured like that. They tend to be missing certain memory chips. If it works and shows up as 10gb then you should be fine.

    Void Master reacted to Master Disaster in YouTube has added the ability to give 7 days notice for a DMCA takedown   
    They're calling it Scheduled Takedown Notices and once a claimant files one the recipient has 7 days to respond before automatically getting a channel strike.
    The recipient has several options, do nothing, delete the offending video or contact the claimant to try to come to an agreement over the dispute.
    If you choose to do nothing and wait then after the 7 days passes the video will be removed and you'll get a strike but at that point normal rules apply and you can file an official counter claim to dispute under fair use or a misidentification.

    I don't know what to say about this, this seems like a genuinely positive thing from YouTube that will hopefully protect smaller channels from getting strikes unfairly and ultimately keep more people making content for the platform.
     
    Did Google finally do something right by YouTube?

    Void Master 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).

    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.

    Void Master reacted to D13H4RD in Not you too! - Miners looking towards gaming laptops powered by NVIDIA's Ampere GPUs for Ethereum   
    Summary
    In what should really surprise very little at this point, owing to a shortage of GeForce RTX 30-series desktop cards, miners, notably those in China, have started to turn their attention towards newly released laptops with NVIDIA's shiny new GPU architecture, notably for mining Ethereum, which has seen a significant value jump that now sits around the $1600-1700 mark. Given the sheer compute power of NVIDIA's Ampere architecture, even notebook GPUs have proven to be lucrative for cryptomining, even to the point of using it to mine whilst in a coffee shop, making enough to pay for the coffee itself.
     
    Quotes
    Coupled with the incoming Chinese New Year holiday period, if this gains more attention and traction amongst miners, it may be the case that new gaming laptops may also suffer from the supply and price-gouging issues that many desktop parts, notably those from AMD and NVIDIA, have suffered from over the past few months.
     
    My thoughts
    It definitely looks like a pretty bad time to be in the market for any product that utilizes AMD's Zen 3 and RDNA2 architecture alongside NVIDIA's Ampere. With supply chains still reeling from the effect of COVID-19, and now coupled with increasing mining interests (again) plus the typical issues with scalping and price-gouging from retailers, it looks like many of us who either want to build a new system or upgrade an existing one will have to hold out much longer.

    Void Master reacted to Dracarris in It's not only the GPU itself - Some insight on why we can't buy RTX 3000   
    Summary
     Igor's lab published an interesting article that discusses and explains the causes of the RTX 3000 availability disaster that most of us suffer currently from. While mining is apparently part of the issue (surprisingly mostly for the lower-end GPUs), the devil also lays in other details such as the PWM controllers that are apparently very hard to get right now.

     In generally like the insights that Igor regularly provides but I have been especially starving for these infos. It bugged me so hard to be left in the unknown what exactly is the problem behind producing more cards. While we all knew that the GPU itself is a problem, there is apparently much more to it.

    Nope, its not a joke, some genius/nut job modder has created a custom chip for the Super Nintendo to support ray tracing.

    Bubbles2.mp4 Using some pretty damn impressive electrical engineering and an FPGA they were able to create a custom chip they call the SuperRT to handle ray tracing with up to 4 rays per screen pixel. I should add, I'll summarise the post here but the link to the source goes into WAAAAAAY more detail. If you interested in the full explanation then please go have a read through it.

    I'm genuinely amazed at what some people do in their spare time. While GPUs are becoming more powerful every year to cope with new features like RT someone decide to build it into a 30 year old console.
