AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1920X Review
AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper 1950X put a feather in the cap of its high-end desktop aspirations. The company’s new line-up challenges Intel’s best efforts. But, as usual, some of the best value in AMD’s product stack is found in the mid-range models. Ryzen Threadripper 1920X comes arms with 12 physical cores and SMT, enabling 24 concurrent threads fed by 38MB of cache, a quad-channel memory controller, and 64 lanes of PCIe. All of that costs $800, dramatically undercutting the 10-core Core i9-7900X. Based on the back-and-forth we’ve witnessed this year, it appears the Ryzen family of CPUs may have caught Intel off-balance. AMD’s siren call to enthusiasts includes lower prices, more cores, less segmentation, soldered heat spreaders, less expensive motherboards, and a longer commitment to each platform…

New WikiLeaks Dump Uncovers CIA Malware Infecting Windows Boot Sector
WikiLeaks has just revealed another secret CIA project used to compromise Windows systems, this time targeting the operating system boot sector to then allow for deploying more payloads. Codenamed project Angelfire, the hacking tools were aimed at Windows XP and Windows 7 and consisted of 5 different tools that worked together to compromise a system. First of all, it’s Solartime, a malware component whose primary goal is to modify the boot sector to load a second module called Wolfcreek and consisting of a set of drivers that enable dumping other payloads like drivers and applications…

DeepL, nuevo y mejor servicio de traducción que Google Translate
Estemos de acuerdo o no, por mucho que una persona sepa inglés u otro idioma, en algún momento debe recurrir a un servicio de traducción o por lo menos un diccionario que le ayude a saber lo que significa una frase o palabra en realidad. El problema con los servicios de traducción, como Google Translate o Bing Translator, es que traducen de manera literal. Dicho de otra forma, la traducción de ciertas palabras no va de acuerdo con el contexto y al final de cuentas el usuario debe pensar en la manera adecuada de interpretarla. DeepL es un nuevo servicio de traducción de quienes crearon el diccionario multilingüe Linguee, una alternativa a Google Translate y Bing Translator que ofrece mejores traducciones gracias al uso de un súper ordenador y redes neuronales…

AMD’s new budget 8-core Threadripper processor costs $549
AMD’s Threadripper chips are the company’s top-of-the-line desktop processors, offering the best performance and the most cores of any of the Ryzen line of processors. But while they’re not quite as expensive as Intel’s high-end multi-core offerings, the first batch of Threadripper chips weren’t exactly cheap, either. Fortunately for gamers looking for a slightly more affordable option, AMD is releasing a new budget Threadripper 1900X model…

China aims to build a supersonic “flying train” that would put Elon Musk’s Hyperloop to shame
The country’s state-run space contractor, China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation (CASIC), announced yesterday (Aug. 30) that it has started research on a “high-speed flying train” that it says will be able to reach top speeds of 4,000 km per hour (2,485 miles per hour). That is 10 times faster than the world’s fastest bullet train (which is also in China), four times faster than commercial flights, and over three times the speed of sound (1,225 km/h)…

Kaspersky Lab turns the tables, forces “patent troll” to pay cash to end case
In October, Kaspersky Labs found itself in a situation familiar to many tech companies: it was sued (PDF) by a do-nothing patent holder in East Texas who demanded a cash settlement before it would go away. Wetro Lan’s settlement demands kept dropping, down from its initial “amicable” demand of $60,000. Eventually, the demands reached $10,000—an amount that’s extremely low in the world of patent litigation. Kniser tried to explain that it didn’t matter how far the company dropped the demand. “Kaspersky won’t pay these people even if it’s a nickel,” he said. Then Kniser took a new tack. “We said, actually, $10,000 is fine,” said Kniser. “Why don’t you pay us $10,000?” After some back-and-forth, Wetro Lan’s lawyer agreed to pay Kaspersky $5,000 to end the litigation. Papers were filed Monday, and both sides have dropped their claims…

New AMD Processor Families Compare Well to New Intel Processors
After a very long period of near irrelevance in the desktop, high-end desktop (HEDT) and server processor market segments, AMD has released three new processor families based on their Zen architecture that are actually quite competitive with current Intel processor in these three market segments. These are the AMD Ryzen, AMD Ryzen Threadripper, and AMD EPYC 7000 families. We’ll skip the AMD Ryzen desktop processors for now and jump right into the AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors..
