China Bans Under-18s From Playing Online Games for More Than an Hour a Day
"The gaming banned for minors in china. Now obviously it's a little bit more complicated but it's also not entirely unexpected this new law supersedes twenty nine thousand nine rules that allowed ninety minutes per day and forbade playing between ten pm and eight. Am with the justification back then being that well kids shouldn't be playing too many video games and they shouldn't be up late such that will affect their schooling. Which is i mean fair enough. But whether that is the rule of the state or the role of the parent is something that i think a lot of people would disagree about The twentieth nineteen measures also limited minors monthly spending on games to a maximum of fifty seven. Which appears to be unchanged. This new policy also enforces a policy requiring game companies to require players. Real names when logging it. I mean imagine. Imagine having imagine giving up your minor data protection laws in order to make sure that those miners who companies are now by law collecting information from are not playing too many video. Games that's That's an interesting double edged sword right there. The press release on state media said it is indisputable that indulging online games effects normal study life and teens physical and mental health. I could see that young. Chinese gamers are lashing out at the new rules. One objection sexual consent. It fourteen at sixty and you can go to work but you have to be eighteen to play games. This is really a joke. Know good observation as well. I don't think. I could have put it better myself now to be clear. There's nothing that the chinese government can do to prevent minor from playing a single player game completely disconnected from the internet. If there was. I'm sure they would be trying to figure out how to do that. In fact my understanding is that functionality. Like that could end up being baked into game platforms like the chinese version of steam. So that if you are playing a single player offline game Could theoretically be enforced. But my understanding is there's no actual enforcement or attempt to enforce any kind of rule like that. This is mostly focused on online

"Has performed a nearly silent swap on the wd blue. 'send five fifty much like the recent incidents with a data and crucial. This new nand on the and five fifty has significantly slower. Right speeds wants the cash becomes abso- stated according to extreme tech the average rate speed when the static twelve gig. Slc caches exhausted is as low as three hundred ninety four megabytes per second on the new drive previous would average around six hundred ten after exhausting the cash. That is a huge difference and the problem. actually. I see a couple of problems here. One of them is that this is on drive. The advertisers rate speeds of up to twenty four hundred megabytes per second and the other is that the average user would have no way of knowing that it changed like this has been made until all of a sudden. They go to do something demanding with their drive. And it's just slow and they don't understand why with a twelve gigabyte. Slc cash so. If you guys aren't familiar and slc cash basically takes a component of your mlc or tlc or q elsie nine. So that's how many bits per cell are being stored and it operates it in. Slc or single bit per cell mode. What that does is it. Effectively cuts in half or a third or even a quarter. How much data you can store on that cash component but it makes it perform way better especially for rights and endurance as well actually for that matter all right so that s still see cash super fast but and it's great for you know if you're installing photoshop or something like that and that's going to happen real fast as fast as your cpu can keep up with decompressing the files and and feeding the sst with data to right the problem. Is that as soon as you go to do. Something heavy twelve. Gigs is actually not that much. In the context of let's say for example installing a vigia game like luke off the top of your head. Okay can you think of any games. That are larger than twelve jessica bites. You hit me with one. I can think of a game. That's ten over ten times bigger than that Call of duty called. Denny's notoriously massive Tori last you call of duty games have been like well over one hundred gigs each Way these slc caches. Work is as long as everything you're doing fits within them. Everything is hunky dory. Everything's fast but once you have the and then and then once the drive is idle. It'll flush that cash slowly over time right out to the less performance. Tlc or qc operating mode net hall right so if you were to go and install a massive game for example it is very conceivable that after a short period of time your performance would absolutely tank. And now we're talking as low as about two thirds of the performance that you would have had before the non swap in the real world probably won't work out that way it probably won't affected to that degree because there are other bottlenecks when you're installing a program unless you're just doing a raw file copy but it's not a good look so here is the statement.

"Invidia omni verse twenty six thirty. I don't see a ahead talking. Just click the lincoln the doc. It's time stamped. Maybe everything i said is wrong. What is real question. Mark in the link right below that okay right here oh. This is a completely different video. Alright then oh. Wow yeah that does not look real at all right. So that's the first version that they had right and he says like okay. It's not that great or whatever but once blue jacket guy goes away. Yeah and you get to this. They show like example driving results. The results is in say allow the result is like bonkers and this goes on for a little bit and they show a different a few different versions of this and the like the tuned in versions of what they have is amazing so basically instead of using an actor for a deep fake they're using kind of a decent three d. animation as the source for their what is essentially then a deep fake and then they used a mo cap after god put emotions but then like and this is using a i. Yeah right so machine learning and then you see like how good that is because it looks rather incredible right. Yeah looks great now if you you don't want to click on the second leg. Gimme get your time snip. Oh no i'll click the second link now that i now that i know it's just twenty eight minutes. The problem is just that. I have an having a really hard time seeing the top of my display because of my lights. I actually can't always see the tabs up there blinding anyway. The point is yeah here we go so they. They show that incredible example. Yeah and then they show this. And now i'm like well. That example was so good. I don't know if this person here is actually him or if it's digitally rendered because the previous example is so fantastic but what he's saying is that they they had him like sit there and do these motions. So it's like okay. This is probably actually him and they said that they got these motions and stuff three or four days before the keynote. Which is like wow. That's really not a lot of time. Yeah and then. It shows him constructing at at twenty eight fourteen fifteen. It shows him specifically constructing that fourteen seconds. Seen right okay. So then i think it is the fourteen seconds. Okay yeah there. It is man pretty cool It's it's cool that it's kind of. I wish they were more clear. Yes i it's cool that it's so confusing because securely did a really good job yeah yeah yeah they did they did they really darn good job of it. That headline from tech radar is extremely misleading. I tried to. I tried to lean into it as much as i could. Because when you're when you're looking at this connecting to the metaverse video like i said there's versions there's results that they have like old cow and this is. This is the video that tech was watching to write this article. Okay and the video is a little confusing. Jared's tech just blew my mind. You finish your thought and then i'm a blow your mind and turn it's going to be great. Yeah so i can. Just i can understand why it was fusing tech radar. I think they should change their title but after watching this video i like part of me kind of believed yet. So jared tech says. They need to remake shrek with this. So you basically use the original shrek as your source right for your deep fake and then you create like new higher resolution photo realistic shrek and donkey and fiona farquaad.

The clouds hyper skills. Were doing it. They were putting in no hardware reliever three switches the underlay and then in the data centers just putting the land or nb gre overlays on top of it. So the idea that. Hey white couldn't do this on the white ear network and don't care about. The transport was very intriguing. But you know what they were doing it. For hyper scale is very different than why. St land needed this in. Why the way needed this. So so when. I saw this in two thousand twelve when i started studying seeing startups emergency area.

There's some something something something something. Something something Something something yeah. Epson has some pretty crazy stuff as well. They have thirty thousand lumine.

I'm like kinda down. Oh my goodness goldstein. That if someone buys the gold controlling. Then i'm super down to just take that money and make a steam deck with it like and we'll just keep making gold stuff with the same gold. You could just ask the person who bought the gold controller if they're interested in a gold steam deck. Yeah yeah we have a customer like already ready to go for it. Then whatever kinetic asks. I'm not sure exactly how bad the housing market in candidates but wouldn't take the wall cost about as much as a small apartment in a rural town or a tesla for each of your kids. I mean if you rural enough you might be able to get an apartment for the price of the wall. But you can't watch your apartment not nbc.

"They're gonna get a new graph as far. That is extremely cool now and reasons like this. Are i think one of the reasons why has really strong customer loyalty. They've got a great reputation. They've been behaving this way for a lot of years. Yeah i've told my story about my like mineral oil thing many times all right now. I have to question. Eve wants us to review the spectrum case. So this is there like you know crowds backed you guys remember eve- rate so they made that eve. V surface competitor thing. A lot of people ended up being extremely upset at the way they retreated by eve Their reputation not perfect at this point in time now we covered an early version of the spectrum. This is their monitor and honestly our coverage of it was not particularly favourable but we still had members of our community that were upset that we gave any exposure to them whatsoever even though we acknowledged in the video their history of it being difficult to cancel preorder and they're shipping dates slipping. We said in the video that was estimating ship date of whatever and then we said right in the video that from my experience and what i know about launching products that that is not going to happen but people were upset anyway about us covering it at all. Can you guys tell me what to do. Because it is a it is a consequential product and i would like to cover it. They have sent us a final production unit. Apparently but if you guys don't want me to cover it that's it. It stays on the shelf so of hit me up. Just let me know what we're just going to let the community decide. This is one of those things where we're gonna straw. Poll straw pulled me here. We go cover the eve spectrum. Okay and we're not gonna have any like stupid throwaway. We're gonna have any stupid throwaway turn-up responses or anything like that. I need to know. Do we cover this thing or do we. Not most the i. I don't think i've seen anyone info plan chat. Say anything other than cover it or do it. We'll have to see what the poll result is. You gotta we gotta go to the polls we gotta go to the carols we need to know what the greenlee on the cover it sida. I'm pretty sure you've only painted it to floatplane so far i had twitches well. Okay still waiting for those results. So here's some results rolling in we're looking at. We've got four hundred twenty two votes and so far. Ninety percent of the community says cover it but something to kind of give you guys context for this If ten percent of our community is upset about us covering product that tends to have a significant impact on the videos performance because people will like be mad now whether you should post you should host a role in an in like a pigsty or something as a reference to the company reputation in the mud in the mud. ladies and gentleman and mud's a nice word for what it is. I mean with that said like if the will of the people is that lucky eighty eight percent of them. Want us to do it then. I really think that in the interest of of finding out if a small company can can make a compelling monitor we kind of have to cover it. Then i mean we can include caveat saying look these guys have a real patchy history and you know maybe what we do is we frontload that information. Rather than saying okay. Here's the product by the way. Here are the co caveats. Because that's usually the way that i liked to structure video. I like to say okay. Here's why i'm excited about this. Come along for the ride. Here's the problems i found. That's my that's my general format that i prefer but what i could say is. Here's all the problems i found. Now let's see if it could even possibly be worth rolling not die because this product is that amazing. I guess i have no choice for those wondering eve. Spectrums main claim to fame is just that it's higher fresh raid. It's got support for variable refresh rate that the specs on paper look outstanding. Looked like it was going to be the first hd two point one market to hit but that was before the delivery date slipped again and again and again so it did have some buzz. I just don't really know if there's any buzz. Now but ninety percent of you seem to want us to cover it. So i guess that's i guess that's good. I've never dove into these guys before.

All of sudden does it do to forty hertz or does it do vision. whatever. I don't know right I buying those modules with definitely not make any sense no but we could sell the existing modules so the full so were into it for the investment in this ongoing content but to continually upgrade it might end up not being as cost prohibitive as buying it. in the first place was navy cobra. navy cobra and floatplane is a pain customer k. floatplane customer. Please get the wall and then just milk the content in videos from it but okay. That's what we're trying to do though but we haven't even reached ten videos and ten videos. I think would be like a really rough minimum. I mean. I don't even know if i don't know ten videos would be enough. They'd have to be pretty banger videos. That's that's what. I'm okay. So i'm saying ten videos. I see as a minimum to try to convince other people. Yeah to get you to be able to buy not a minimum to be able to make it worth it If we're going by by next metric we need seventy two videos. Okay well there's other there's other There's there's other options. There's other options. If i wanted to do something. Really crazy Sony has he laser projector. That's i think ten thousand knit peak. Brightness are something ridiculous like that That might be pretty cool. I think that one will run you around. I wanna say No actually don't know. I was gonna say fifty grand but that does not appear to be correct because they have a five thousand nip peak brightness model that is eighty five grand. Okay so luke. Can you at least get on board with this. If i was going to buy a crazy display. I should get a the wall rather than this projector. Because projectors are like never aligned perfectly and the wall was aligned perfectly. So are the panels individually addressable. No i don't believe so. My understanding is the whole thing acts as a single display. So that's where that controller head comes in and then it has those optical links to all of the individual panels that are going to have that awareness of where they're installed so you have a single hdmi input Carrying all of your content and then it's just spread over all the panels and my understanding is supposed to be basically seamless but from meinen james's experience on show floors and stuff like that. You can kind of see it. But i'm hoping that that's something that they've improved for this particular generation and even with previous ones. It was like you had to kind of work at it. When you're not trying to see it you know like if you're trying to see it you can find a seam but if you're not really trying to see it and you're just like watching what's on the thing you don't you don't really notice it from my experience.

It's amazing we're gonna end up developing the screwdriver for free Serious mega pro. Great products local local company than port. Kells they're our neighbors and we are going to do. Let you know what. Let's try something new. Let's do our headline topic second so people who tune into a little bit later. That's the first thing they're gonna see. Why don't we talk about the situation with activision blizzard warnings. Done the prep on this topic. Yes the thousand foot view. Ladies and gentlemen is that activision blizzard's Alleged mistreatment of women and minorities particularly women in the workplace has now gotten to the point where they are being sued by the state of california does not like one complainant is like they were mean to me. This is like hold on canisters like super bad actually through it loop blizzard over the last wild has been lizard accident in general has been in a pretty rough spot it has been described by certain investors as a like a a scheme to just give as massive of bonus checks as possible to bobby conic It's it's most of blizzards. Games have been in some form of decline. They're one of the only developers of a consistent online game that saw a massive decrease in players over the pandemic which is crazy revisit. That point later and like talk about what that means. Actually i'm going to add that to the duck because that is a third filling. How did you manage this. Yeah yeah which is crazy. And like if you're running if one of your may titles is an emo and there was a pandemic where people had to stay inside for obscene amounts of time. And you lost. If i remember correctly this is not in my notes. I think it's like thirty percent of your player. Based what are you doing anyways. Tons of their old guard employees have been quitting. And then now. They're being sued a state of california. She gonna go through my notes more specifically because there's a lot of them and i wanna kinda fire through video game company behind world war captain candy crush. That's the activision. Ken king side of things is being sued over allegations of its frat boy culture and treatment towards female employees a two year investigation into the company revealed discrimination against women specifically pregnant employee's sexual frats retaliation and unequal pay. The company said it was cooperative with the agency in its investigation and that the d. f. e. h. which is the agency looking into this refuse to inform them of certain allegations. It had discovered in cases of misconduct in the past activision blizzard. Inc said action was taken to address issues. This part where. There's going to be a lot of these person going to try to keep going through it but there's quite a few of these things that drive me absolutely nuts. This is one of them If you dive into it significantly more The h has brought up a lot of problems and blizzard has been taking action on them. A now that they are suing them was like whoa. You didn't tell us that we do not wrong. So ridiculous anyways. The company responded to the allegations Oh the company just wanted to allegations by saying that. The picture agency painted was not a blizzard workplace of today. A lot of their comments have been saying that. This was stuff from the past Excited new anti-trust meant trainings. Confidential tip line for employees to report violations and performance based compensation as its efforts improved but the plaintiffs said that the pervasive Frat boy workplace culture continues to thrive women are subject. Some of this stuff is just like to be clear all alleged. Just all alleged covering here. Yes yes yes. That's fair Plaintiff said in the office women are subject to cube crawls which which already sounds disgusting. Yes sir which involves males drinking excessively. Which i know this is a thing in modern web three web. Three point zero offices and stuff. But i've never understood it being able to drink at work very weird to me. I don't drink something that's why but it just seems really odd But males would drink excessively as they crawls their way through various cubicles and engaged in inappropriate behavior towards the women what the investigation also found that male employees showed up to work hungover. Play video games while delegating responsibilities to female employees and joked about rape and their sexual encounters one male supervisor allegedly told a male subordinate to buy a prostitute to cure his bad mood Former senior creative director for the company. Alex afrasiab. I hope i said the right. He has an npr in game..

I'm going to butcher this name but i'm going to try. Vladimir kabosh schick was working at microsoft redmond office testing e commerce infrastructure. I twenty six years. I don't know why this matters key quickly discovered a flaw in the system That he then excellent did he did not report it. You exploit it. He started small. He started off with ten to one hundred dollar codes. He didn't generate really all that many but he was. He was scalping them who selling them two years later only two years later he generated over one hundred fifty two thousand zip codes at evaluation of ten point one million dollars. He flipped those cards For bitcoin and bitcoin for cash and was very quickly living on a seven figure. Lakefront home. i don't know how you could possibly think you weren't going to get caught for that Man suspects just like after a while of not getting caught. He just thinks he's invincible. And then buys a seven figure lakefront. Home i go. I mean you. Chris right hubris nine years in prison for gift card theft. I mean it was ten million dollars of fast. Effectively stole ten million dollars. Yeah that is crazy. Apparently he was responsible. I don't see where this is. Yeah he flips so many cards one hundred fifty thousand cards that were generated or thin- right so he was responsible for global fluctuations in the price of xbox gift cards on reseller markets because he flooded them so all absolutely crazy. That's that is un- freakin real man. Oh what can you do about it. Though right i yeah i mean the second goes into bitcoin. It's it's It's a little difficult to track. I do wonder how exactly he was caught. I don't know if like one of his fellow. Employees comes and visits his home and his like. How'd you get this. But yeah pretty crazy ridiculous. All right i am getting a call from the wife. So i think i'm going to have to go soon. But why don't we try and get through a couple more topics here. Intel and apple are going to be the first to get three nanometer from. Tsmc are they're both lined up as the first customers for the new process which will be referred to as end three and we'll do deployed in late twenty two. It'll offer a ten to fifteen percent performance increase at the same power transistor count a thirty percent power reduction at the same clocks in complexity as well as seventy and twenty percent gains in logic density and ashram density respectively. According to mckay report. Both companies are already testing their tip designs that are being produced using the entry process and it also states intel's apparently preparing at least two products to be made with the process one for notebooks and one for servers. It's possible these will only be more niche products as opposed to intel's mainstream consumer products. But only time will tell apple. Be using and three on an sec in late. Twenty twenty two or early twenty twenty three in the ipad and apparently that will be a new processor Versus the current m one which kind of makes sense. Because i'm one we'll have had. Oh it'll be two years at least two years old by that time. We know that until we'll be outsourcing some ataman zeon based tsmc. So it's a safe bet that these are among those products fascinating. I have one more quick thing to announce on lt store. Do we have a new product. Oh yeah reflective heat sink shirt is here ladies and gentlemen look at this fantastic modeling team. We've got that's right. It's reflective has a reflective lt logo on the back later. This guy this girl this guy look at this other guy. Hey and you can get them now for nine hundred ninety nine also. We have brought back mystery shirts. They're twelve ninety nine and they're a mystery. A lot of them are going to be older and less popular ones or ones that are we only had oddball sizes left and good stuff like that. So hey there you go there a mystery but they're cheaper and i think that's pretty much for the show. I think. I gotta go. Ladies and gentlemen so i'll just do a couple of super chats here. Oh my goodness there's quite a few. But at least. I managed to click the tab so they didn't tell go away Adrian frick recommends a game. The messenger not looking for more games right now though. I got a bunch of them. Got a bunch of them last week. thanks bob costco. Anyone else notice a little linus. Luke's beards disappear going from the interest of the sponsor. Yes that's because the sponsor things are older. Michael says thanks for all the content loved watching the videos. Hey awesome Robert says windows eleven system. Requirements are a mess. Hard to keep up with leaks and discussions and their own tool is still not for users. One hundred percent. The good news is that it's actually launched yet so they've got this stuff figured out. Hunter says the t. pm two point over requirement is gonna put a strain on schools. I can tell you for a fact. My district can't afford slash doesn't want to pay for new positions Yeah that's actually. I really really good point. They do have quite a quite a few years. But i do know that a lot of schools try to stay on the most modern operating system at the release so that that will make that tough. Tomac says live streams.

There should be no reason from a a a personal criminal liability standpoint that it would matter. I would also think though that you'd want you'd want your unread homeys to be people you know and mostly trust anyway but friend friend raid coming soon to lt stores since jimmer famer person. Yeah phonology has that feature the last time that i tried to mess with it. It wasn't exactly the same and be done. It's clunky and theology. Is our mother sinology there. It's not cross platform. So what i want is a way to just do it on something that runs on cheap commodity hardware. Yeah yeah because you like. I just gave the that. Probably i probably put that person down that path. Because i said i would just sell my family. These little boxes but That's that's not particularly what i mean. Like my my brother's pretty tacky my dad's pretty tacky etc. They would probably just wanna use some old computer hardware that had laying around and connect some drives to it like it's they wouldn't want to buy a new senility now. It's like Yeah it's it's if people are saying try explaining that to a judge. I don't have to explain that to judge you guys. Don't think this has ever come up like come on guys. You gotta you gotta use you gotta use your commonsense here all right cool all right. I'll why don't we. Why don't we talk to our sponsors. And then i'll be showing you guys some pictures of my new digs. I'm pretty excited. I have never seen. Let's do it. That luke has never seen. The show is brought heat today by a build. Reebok's need to scroll down to the thing here. There you go reductions a pc builder striving to bring pc gaming to the masses. They have no markup on the parts.

And they spent the vast majority of my precious time a alive on this earth. Talking about stuff that doesn't matter and very little of the time talking about features that engineers actually worked on.
"wan" Discussed on The WAN Show Podcast
"All right. Let's go ahead and roll that into crap. That's not the right thing there and the show is brought to you today by squarespace. Sonic and msi. Yeah all right. Why don't we jump right the hardware unbox topic you know luke. I asked for so little this week. You know what i asked for this week. I asked for a positive win show. That's all i wanted. I wanted to win show. That was just full of good news. So that i could just hearing go boy. Gosh how darn do i ever love. Technology and everything about it and this is all just good stuff that i am excited to tell you about. That is what i wanted. Luke is that what i got. No no that was a return. It was a rhetorical question. I expected you to sit silently like you always do on the show like a good boy but that was. It was not what i got. You wanted you wanted a happy land. Show full of happy topics and i wanted to win. Show where. I would have things to add to it and we got the longest topic. I've seen forever about influence on review wild. I mean your memory is working with them was always pretty good. I think right. Yeah but i. I haven't worked with them forever. But yeah and the thing is with them was totally. Companies are made of people and literally. Nobody that we worked with that. Lg when luke was working on reviews still interacts with us from lg. I mean it's possible. It's possible they're still there but certainly they aren't who we interact with and they probably aren't who hardware unbox was interacting with because i would have known better than to pull this kind of nonsense so hardware. Unbox made a video. I think it was a couple of days ago now yesterday. I don't know it doesn't matter. The point is while they were reviewing twenty seven. Gp eight fifty. So that's their new high performance. Twenty seven inch gaming display their reviewer received a last minute email from l. g. cns okay. Here's where we're going to go off on our first hand l. g. Cns is not technically this same company as lg fix and then while we're at it. Lg display is actually also not the same company as lg electron ix l. g. display makes panels that they then sell to lg electron ix. Oh but wait also other company so. Lg display might make panels say sony. You know how. Sony has a really bright lead. We actually did a video about it recently. It's just an lg second gen panel the same as lg has in their g one. But then sony did their own tuning they had added an additional cooling layer that allows it to get brighter and see they added their own technology to it but at the end of the day. It's so weird right. It's like whoa l. g. l. g. Selling tv's to sony so that they can sell them like but actually lg display is a different company. That does all the rnd on the display side and they'll electric's actually goes and builds a monitor out of it or tv out of it or whatever. The case may be now l. g. cns technically a different company. But if you're a super smart individual with super to brain cells to run together run together to rub together. You can probably figure out that. Lg the agency that works for l. g. separate company is probably a lot closer to lg. Then let's say north strategic another pr company would be too lg right like their office probably is very close. Okay soon and lg s you know probably works mostly are only for lg so basically. It's not uncommon for companies to create spinoff separate portions of their business in this manner. I'm not a hundred percent. Sure why. I mean one benefit. I could come up with immediately off. The top of my head is that it would allow different divisions of the company to use different agencies as they see fit it would allow them to have different Like different salary or different benefits packages for these like you know cheer agency employees versus the like real. Lg employees who worked for l. d. electron lg. It there's there's there's a lot of different reasons. It might be for liability purposes if they were to get sued safer example for some unethical thing that they're agency did on their behalf. It would be great if that was a separate company. So there's a few reasons. I can come up with right off. The top of my head for why a company might want to have a separate agency that is very separate but is actually just named lg but like not displays and not electron. Ix bill a totally different. Lg all right. So let's move on a little bit so l. g. Cns imposed a release embargo on the review. In this last minute email so In our industry usually a review embargo has decided upon before you even get information about the product so invidia or intel this is. This is very typical. In fact i will go find an intel embargo email. Because they're usually pretty by the book about things hi linus. We hope you are well on this day. As part of this thing intel. We'll share some details on. Its latest core processor and connectivity news. If you agree to hold an embargo until seven thirty. Pm pacific time. We can provide the announcement in advance. Look forward to sharing more. And thanks as always for your interest in intel. Very to the point. That's by the book. That's how you want to do these things. It is not usual for a for a company to tell you after. You've already evaluated the products that there's an embargo and there's a couple of reasons for that number one is that they would have no way of preventing you from then publishing it because it was never part of the deal and number two is that it would help. Prevent leaps right. You wouldn't want a bunch of people who don't agree to your embargo to have the product on hand. So why would you want to send it to someone who hasn't agreed here embargo so already there's alarm bells going off here. Right now. Embargo dates can change. But that's usually part of the of the that's usually part of the original. Nda or embargo agreement is they might say okay this is subject to change the push it out. They might pull it in. It doesn't happen such that they pull in the date very often but we have seen it delayed say for example there was a shipping lane. They couldn't actually launch the product on that day. They might say oops guys. Can you hold your review for a couple of days and generally speaking whether we're whether we are actually obligated to through the letter of the law in the agreement or not we would. We would typically comply with something like that. Because it's it's not unreasonable. We understand the symbiotic relationship that the press has with hardware manufacturers for the most part they understand it as well they benefit from us objectively evaluated their product and we benefit from having early access to it so that we can evaluate the product. Okay it's worth noting in this case. Hardware and box never formally agreed to any embargo so while the situation i talked about just now could be a common thing. I mean not common but it does happen from time to time where the terms of the agreement might change and everything's amicable. In this case. There was no agreement. There was just hay badly embargo. Good luck with that. So okay ultimately hardware. Unbox released a very positive review of the twenty-seven gpa fifty with one caveat being that the faster latency mode was quote unusable due to ghosting issues. Now a funny thing about that is. That's a pretty normal thing to observe. Luke had you ever seen a monitor that had like a faster. Ghosting like overdrive setting. That was usable. All terrible essentially garbage anyway. Lg reached out to after the video was released as they believed. The testing methodology was slightly..
An Update on The Trial of Brice Rhodes
"We have three individuals in custody three being charged with murder and the police are hoping that one of them will turn on the others and talk now under question captain. Bryce roads denied any knowledge of what had happened to larry maurice. He did tell cops after talking to them for several hours quote. I need a lawyer man. If you're going to keep all in my face now taylor. The other individual in custody also initially refused to talk and tell detectives what he knew so police are going to turn to this antoine carter the youngest of the three and he decides to help out do the right thing and he tells police. Exactly what happened to maurice. And larry ann wan said that on the night of may twenty-first leading into the twenty second he and bryce roads and the two brothers and jacoby taylor were all hanging out at prices. Rhodes place now remember captain. I said that it was important that bryce roads mom said she was out of town when whatever went down went down ray price as successful and famous rapper guy that he claims to be in. The neighborhood lives at home with mommy. Of course that's because he's spending too much money at the job every stomachs right. So taylor in maurice get into a fight at prices place this is. What's being told to police that. Marie pulled out a knife. Bryce roads hit murray's and took the knife away then an also maintained that larry and maurice had stolen some money from bryce roads. This all these actions leading up to their murder. Now i want to be perfectly clear here captain because it's not clear to me. How much of this is true right. There was an altercation that these two boys stole from bryce roads while since chance at none of that's true but also makes it seem like they pulled a knife and then bryce took the knife away therefore it being some kind of act of self-defence right right because the rest of what an would tell. The police is basically what you mentioned on yesterday. Show that bryce roads afraid that he's going to be implicated for murder by these two young box the he decides the best way to get them not to talk to shut them up permanently and kill
AMD's New CPU Socket Just Leaked
"Man. Do you remember when it was intel. Cpu launches were exciting. Yeah you also remember when. Cps weren't like absolute massive chagas. I was actually expecting you to say no. Because it's been a while why i mean that's true. It's such a weird flip. Remember the twenty six hundred k. Okay like if you if you look back it when you and i started working together which was old longtime over ten years now we we have flipped from all intel news to all. Amd news base basically. It's been such a long time. You think that at least some point in their it would essentially be a time where it was like really notably both and we had a little bit of that. Crossover here there. But it's pretty much just been all intel news or all. Amd news really weird. Yeah we're in the amd era and this is according to a leak from executed fix. Who apparently has a pretty good track record with. Amd leaks that the upcoming amd am five socket will be lga seventeen eighteen. So this'll be similar to most intel and all of amd's threader processors in that instead of using pins on the bottom of the cpu and then little holes in the socket on the motherboard going to use pads on the cpu and then a landlord array of pins in the motherboard itself. So we've actually got a display. Capture this images from at you fix. Cbs's ono now. I've moved other things. That's okay there. We go supposedly this is what. Am five rafael will look like from the bottom. That's right you're seeing it here. I unless you follow at excu exceed exceed q fix on twitter. That's all one thousand seven hundred and eighteen pens
Apple's 40-Core Desktop Is Coming
"Apple's pro desktop could have up to forty course This rumor was broken by mark. Gurman about apple's impending arm plans and there's actually a handful of rumors. Let's get through all of them. So i up. Is that new macbook pros a fourteen inch and sixteen inch are shockingly coming featuring apple silicon. I don't think anybody saw this new. Macs with apple silicon. No no they were going to have the segmented line forever apple silicon and intel living in perfect harmony No no not happening. They have this like doing their own thing in house ever. They're going to have four thunderbolt ports. Hd my and an st card slot meant having hdmi back. How freaking awesome. Is that going to be for all the people that don't have hdmi on their laptop already. Like what an upgrade. I actually ran a dell. Xps thirteen to one as a daily driver for almost a year. I think and that was the thing that drove me most crazy. I thought it was going to be usb like a usb type and from time to time that was pretty obnoxious because my ubt is the taipei and i do like to use a mouse. If i'm actually sitting in doing something for a while at the computer. I don't really prefer wireless mice bluetooth. I find noticeably noticeably. Leg man i just love to see an industry standard for something like logitech slate. Speed properly tried light speed kills really well. Yeah but i mean you need a dongle. They're all taipei. So basically you're stuck with a dog goal no matter what if you want to plug a decent mouse into your laptop. But that wasn't the one that drove me crazy. The one that drove me most crazy most often was not having hdmi. Because you never know if you're going to be somewhere doing something
Intel: Core i5 Will Beat Ryzen 9
"Why don't we jump right into our first topic of the day yesterday. Intel announced their core. I nine eleven nine. Eighty eight k Let's dissect that That processor code a little bit here. So it's an i nine which means the top of their stack. It's got an eleven which means it is eleventh jen. It has a k. in it which means it overclock. -able it is h which means that is part of their h series so those are high-powered mobile chips and it has a nine hundred eighty in it which means it's faster than Something with a lower number like really good wine pairing to a nine hundred. Ti they call it the world's best gaming laptop processor and it's based on their ten meters superfan process and as eight course with a max frequency of five jigger hurts intel promises nineteen percent generation over generation multi threaded improvement. Which i believe could actually see coming. And i expressed gen four makes an appearance. Apparently this really fast with intel including these graphs.
AMD Is NOT Ripping off Intel
"Topic. I can't remember what it is Yes amd is not ripping off intel. Allow me to explain. It would be easy to say. Oh hey wait. Hold on a second i mean. Amd's releasing a hybrid cpu. That just sounds a lot like intel alder lake which is the codename for their twelve generation courses processors which are going to use the us high performance golden cove course alongside power saving grace mont course with the idea being that you get performance when you need it and power saving when you don't but in fact intel is not the first one to have that idea and there's a whole lot else going on with their zen five architecture that has really nothing to do with what intel's doing so first things first then five will apparently be based on. Tsm's threes n three process. Node which i think they. They're just kinda changing up the nomenclature on us. I actually didn't know that they call them. Okay maybe they're not because they're referring to their seven nanometers and seven so. I've just never heard that branding for it before. Go figure so. Their entry process node is to full nodes away from current seven nanometer node with tsmc and has claimed to be one point seven times as dense as five nanometer which is itself one point eight times as dense as seven nanometer. And we're expecting somewhere in the neighborhood of a fifty plus percent Increase in power efficiency compared to seven nanometer. And wow so fifteen percent faster than fifteen percent faster. What would that. What would that be something like thirty five or so thirty five or so percent faster than seven nanometer as well now. Amdi

Isaac newton assisting have discovered a new fundamental force the results are from the fermi national accelerator lab in illinois which has been doing experiments on me.

I'm a professional physics. Comedian i go to the conferences. The experiment involved measuring the wobble of milan's any big magnetic field based on the most current model of particle physics. They should have wobbled at predictable. Rate when scientists recorded wobbling rate. That was faster than expected. They were led to hypothesize enu fundamental force was at play. Of course if you're not on hive like me might not mean a lot but people in the physics community are very excited. They say this finding has the potential to clear up galactic mysteries like dark matter. Look all good. Keep it up guys. Just let me know before you do something that all into a black

"Of a kind. Unoriginal. He will be missed. You would recognize him if you saw him. But if I say that Veteran character actor Bruce Kirby has died. You would? Probably a year ago. Who wan? Um, but we You saw his face. You'd know who he was. He's been on comes of TV shows on guy. I didn't know he was the father of Bruno Kirby. Really? Yeah. Who's dead?

Is there going to be a foldable iPhone?
"Two iphone. Prototypes allegedly allegedly passing internal durability tests at apple. This is pretty exciting. So this is according to taiwanese website economic daily news and according to them tests of an apple designed folding hinge system for two different. Iphones were reportedly recently completed at the foxconn factory in shenzhen china. Would do you think that would mean if it's two different iphones. Do you think that would mean the high end low end of their entire next launch. No i think that would be two different sizes of probably a completely new utterly unique skill. interesting okay and that would be something that even even two years ago. I probably wouldn't have predicted. But if you look at apple's friend over the last three to five years i mean. Do you remember when the iphone was the iphone and apple silly branding where they don't call it an iphone or the iphone. They just call it iphone. You remember when that actually made sense because there was only one iphone. Well that's been dead forever like her lineup. Let's let's pull this up. Let's let's pull this up ladies and gentlemen apple. The apple dot com. Okay wait yes. It was something i was going to screen share. Okay where is it if it was the shroud thing okay. It doesn't matter the point. Is those pull up. Apple dot com so under iphone. You've got iphone. Twelve pro two different sizes iphone twelve two different sizes iphone se. I eleven iphone. Ten are and then you've got this this compare feature so you've gotta you've gotta compare feature because there's so many iphones you need a feature specifically to figure out which how much iphone is enough for you and be clear. I'm not saying that it's a terrible idea or anything to have you know of lots of iphones available for your customers. I'm just saying that. That wasn't apples. Traditional approach with the iphone. The idea was that when you bought an iphone you were getting this this curated this validated experience way. It was something to do with the model y video. I think it doesn't matter over. I'm over it so what's happening. Then is that from lake from whether it's from a developer perspective or a user perspective. The iphone is changing. Currently you can get iphones with all kinds of different sizes all kinds of different capabilities. I mean it wasn't that long ago that you could still get actually no. You can still get an iphone with a touch touch. Id home button like that is. That is a fundamentally very different experience compared to the current paradigm which is motion and excuse me motion. Just your control and using face. Id so two. Three years ago. I would have said no. There's no way that apple that if there's that if there's no way they're going to bring out like a completely separate model of folding iphone now i'm looking at it going. There's no way that they don't because apple if anything has shown themselves to be extremely conservative about forcing their users to change unless they've offered a compelling upgrade option so for example the iphone se still kicking around for people who want touch id and who want a physical button iphone. Twelve mini is something that they finally brought out to address the need free from users for a smaller one. Hannibal iphone and they're very tactical about the way that they do these things they will. They will wait three to four years which they know is a reasonable upgrade cycle for like a non enthusiast. And then they'll go okay. Have we managed to get these guys to upgrade. No all right okay all right. Let's do it. Let's do it. Let's let's continue. Let's continue to support this segment of our customer base. So there's no way that they're just going to bring in a folding iphone and replace the iphone pro. I i don't. I don't buy it but then again i would have also said there's no way they're just going to completely remove touch. Id and say okay. It has to face idea you want high end. You wanna new iphone iphone. That's it you're done. You're out so i kind of talked myself out of it. Maybe maybe the iphone folding iphone fold or whatever they end up calling definitely won't call it that because galaxy full got to come up with a new name. So maybe yeah. Maybe the i fold will replace high end but i i don't know man. It was a yeah. I'm kind of on each side because they don't normally introduce a feature this big without making a sweeping change but they have also been trending in the direction of more phones and more large feature differences between the phone. So i could see them going in either direction.
Everything we know about Marvel’s Disney+ series
"Disney dropped a treasure trove of news. They will really so much new content across their marvel Star Wars in Pixar brands. I gotta break it up over two of these segments. Driving the most excitement are the 10 New Star Wars Syriza coming to Disney Plus, including spinoffs from the Man DeLorean, Clone Wars and Rogue one A. Lando, Cal Rizzi in series and the Shocker while we've known about the Obi Wan Kenobi thing for some time, What we didn't know is that Hayden Christianson is returning to play Darth Vader. Wow, Also the next Star Wars movie will be directed by Patty Jenkins called Rogue Squadron and it arrives in 2023.
US cybersecurity agency warns suspected Russian hacking campaign broader than previously believed
"Definitely stick around for the mandalorian post credits scene. After the season. Two finale by eliana document warning spoilers. For the mandalorian season two finale below disney announced a slew of new star wars shows during an investor. Call earlier this month. Including to directly tied to the mandalorian and asakusa series and a drama called rangers of the new republic. But the studio wasn't done plumbing the depths of the mandalorian ip at the season. Two finale of the hit disney plus show previewed yet another spin off series set for december. Twenty twenty one. The book of boba. The episode itself was jam packed with action. Mando gathered together a crew to save baby. Yoda now technically called grow goo but baby. Yoda sounds cuter from the villainous. Mov gideon boba fett created a diversion for the rest of the gang and then flew off into space. Mando then secured baby. Yoda and the dark. Saber by defeating moth gideon in battle but faced a dire challenge in the form of the dark troopers legal imperial droids then none other than luke skywalker arrived to save. Mando's posse and take on the child as his apprentice for story reasons. It's rather convenient. That boba fett wasn't around for luke's cameo considering that bobo once hunted down and tried to kill luke in his friends that would have made for an awkward reunion. But that's not the last we see of fat in a post credits scene. He and finnick infiltrate the lay job of the huts palace on tattoo wayne. New occupied by some of bogus old sycophants including bib fortuna. They kill nearly. Everyone led a slave escape and make themselves comfortable on. Job is thrown then book of boba flashes across the screen along with the december. Twenty twenty one premier date. The announcement comes just one day after original boba. Fett actor jeremy bullock died at the age of seventy five book of boba.

And obi wan show set between episodes three and four soka centered on jed eye us. Oh catano animated series the bad batch a show called the acolyte from the creator of netflix's russian doll and landau starring the cape loving crusader himself.
A Star Wars and Marvel bonanza
"The price hike. It seemed inevitable. I mean it's still cheaper than netflix and considerably cheaper than hvl. Max i would say if people ask me whether or not get disney plus i tend to say like star wars and marvel. Do you have kids at which point. It's definitely word this the sheer volume of content. I'd say it's ok. Okay no for sure. I mean for me. I've got i've got kids. So disney plaza lock. I think anyone who's got a family. This is this is our ramaz. Get a among the many different streaming options that we have nowadays Let's get into the shows. I know star wars near and dear to your heart. So let's let's go there first. They announced or talked about ten shows. Let's let's break out. What are some of the new shows that you're excited for low because of out vehicle order Talk about soka. I dawson brought the character life in live action for the first time in season. Two of the mandalorian and that that's a lot like a backdoor pilot for this show. It's just like suggested that she had her own adventures. going on. this was not a surprise. It is a delight though. It is an interesting we. I think we talked about this earlier. The you know the fact that not to get too deep spoiler as they chee. She was offered a role to mentor. Baby yoda no. You really need to go somewhere else. They felt like definitely had that back door pilot vibe to because like i'm sorry i'm off to other adventures. I've got my own thing. Got to deal with and allow that did seem like a setup for its own show. I'm actually late my own. Tv show salena catch trade this game and it gave a pretty clear idea of what she was up to not to get into splutters between between that and the rebels finale. From a few years ago we have a good idea what her objectives are for this show. Yeah we don't wanna get too deep into spoilers. Maybe we'll we'll devote a whole episode of that later on this year to speculate on what what that might be both water. Somebody other shows that that were announced. It was the next big one we knew this was coming for a long time but they talked about a little with last night and give us a sense that or confirmed that it was filming next march And that christian hated christiansen was returning as dark later. Very very exciting news. That one definitely took me by surprise. tactic territory hidden christmas activator. That's that's interesting. As opposed to advocate skywalker. Which would suggest that he appeared in flashbacks as anikin. But saying he's vader would suggest maybe that he'll appear in four seasons or something that is unclear. It's definitely it's intriguing. Another property was with a character. That's near to many star. Wars fans hearts landau gets his own show yet. These were ten on the ground because we don't know if it's going to be live action or a cgi animated series. I feel like donald glover should be involved. Because he was so well received solo so fingers crossed that he will be returning and then there are a long list of other ones kind of run through them really quickly because we unfortunately only have so much time on this podcast okay so there was the ropes quadrant movie directed by patty jenkins of wonder woman fang which is really exciting. That's super cool. That'd be a fighter pilots. There's the bat batch which will be a follow up to the clone wars at those cartridge orig- use there. There's adore which is about caffeine door from roquan. There's tyco tgi movie which we still don't know what that's about our coop concert raiders of the republic. Which is set around the time. Line of the mandalorian and could be about current june because she became a marshal of the new republic but again that remains unclear star wars visions which is automated shorts from abbey craters. That's really cool quite different the acolytes which obviously is that almost excited with the malls because that is set in the era of the high republic which is two hundred years before the phantom menace. And it's like about some sort of a dark site warrior and it could reveal stuff about the Era some different cool. So those a lot. I know being a super star wars fan. I want to get your opinion on this. Is this too much star wars. It certainly was too much reward announcement. I think parceled out over several years. It should be okay especially since the movies will be quite so frequent. Like i remember when it was only like six months between the last year and solo that felt overwhelming with tv. It's a little different as so you can kind of watch out. I'm at home in a more relaxed environment. it's a lot of star wars. There's no escaping that. Yeah yeah yeah i mean. Brian made a good point before we start recording that you know a lot of these might be one off shows ryden. Obi wan will probably be a one-off sled that that kind of makes sense that they'd wanna have this pipeline but it was a lot to digest all in really what was about thirty minutes a thirty minute presentation just for the star wars section. They're just kept pumping out one announcement after another rapid fire a lot but also i think that's partly a function of the fact that they're no conventions this year star wars celebration was

Apple M1 Looks REALLY Good
"Let's go ahead and kick off with our first topic today. This was supposed to by random kid. No random kid on the forums reviews are beginning to trickle in about the new max based on. Apple's am one and so far. The verdict even among those who weren't given advance samples is pretty positive. The common factor all reviewers are talking about is just how cool the chimps run. Anthony came to me actually within probably about an hour and a half of getting his hands on the mac minis like the fan doesn't turn up and i was like. Wow that's pretty cool While the macbook air does thermal throttle. It is apparently not a significant hindrance. That's something that anthony has been working on his well. Unfortunately some of the tools that we rely on for measuring cpu power states clock speeds. And all that kinda stuff don't exist because some of them are intel specific tools that run specifically on intel processors and unlike on the pc where they're sort of like diagnostic utilities for absolute days. Many of which are community supported or open source on the mac. There's not a whole lot so when something really fundamental changes like this it can take a little bit of time for well for anything to kind of come out that allows you to dig into it Fortunately though you can measure performance at the very least we do have a thermal camera so there are definitely things that we can do and so far. It's looking pretty good. The mac mini and macbook pro rarely if ever even have to ramp up their fans in order to reach maximum performance and don't seem to suffer from any thermal throttling. That was actually something. That if i recall correctly is speculated but since everything that i say about max is automatically wrong. I don't think i'll be getting any credit for that. I think what i said was perhaps the difference between the mac the macbook air and the macbook pro is in terms of performance is not necessarily going to be core configuration or clocks bees or anything like that but rather just cooling solution and then just allowing it to throttle f. You're doing something that's an like an extended load an attack shows the m one outperforming intel's tiger lake mobile processors which are their latest and says that the m one in its maximum performance designed with a small fan is quote unquote astoundingly good with software support on day. One looking good due to rosetta too. I was really impressed with rosetta. Twos ability to just take ob s which it is amazing the kind of criticism that i faced over that video it was like people were like what kind of benchmark is obese is a benchmark of. Here's a random utility. That's pretty people. Yeah does not have a native That does not have a native version. For 'em one and i'm gonna just install it and see what happens and i'm going to like scream. Capture and like encode video and. it's a very industry. It's it's definitely needs but it is a very industry tool. It is used by almost everyone that does things that obese could be used for so it's like What kind of a benchmark is that. I don't know like interesting. Earn so rosetta to for those not familiar. Apple's x eighty six emulation layer that allows apple silicon macs run software that has not yet been optimized for the new hardware now typically this incurs a massive performance penalty. So if you look at something like emulation even emulating a game cube game. Upc that is many times more powerful than a game cube to play spiderman or whatever so clearly what apple is doing is not emulation in a traditional sense. What they're doing is what is it on the fly like binary translation or something like that. I forget what the term is But it's a- if i recall correctly it's like a type of emulation but what's really interesting is it seems like they have some kind of hardware acceleration for it. So let me see if i can find the source. For this data data memory model mismatch you have to dance. Straight up implemented the x eighty six consistency model on their cores. That's kind of detail that emulation performers for different architecture. That's really freaking cool. So they actually baked in Features that are going to make way better at emulating x eighty six so other on devices would have to fully translate load store from x eighty six to arm compatible functions between memory model mismatch. But m one is able to do without this extra translation step
The Walmart Haul
"First Up, we have a lot of warm products which hopefully remained warm. Before we try them first up. We have Kellogg's brand new waffles in fun flavors. I have to say, I was like freaking out we have two flavors to try today but there was a third flavor we didn't get that was super cute. The flavors were trying our Unicorn which tastes like cotton candy and birthday cake, which is yellow cake with rainbow. Sprinkles. These are not only available at Walmart. They're also at target Safeway and more and what I noticed about these is that they're very large large like the size of rigging frozen waffles do smell amazing they really do. And I, also GONNA say usually frozen waffles tastes the same I have high hopes for these I think these are gonna be different. What are you trying I? What's the Yellow One? Is What the Unicorn? Birthday. Look it looks like a birthday. Okay. Let's go birthday cake. Okay. That tastes like a birthday cake. These are really moist. They taste like cake. That's really good and the stats are really not bad hundred and thirty calories per waffle two and a half grams of fat five smart points. But I want to say one thing like these are not I feel like in the past like four or five weeks, we've tried a lot of frozen waffles. And they're all the same even the ones who trader Joe's that are Pumpkin flavored. There's something about this waffle. That's a little special do agree. Yeah. Definitely, and I was just noticing that you don't need butter or Maple Syrup on that. I mean this is just fine by itself. You know I totally grandma try the Unicorn cotton catches interesting because they have such perfectly deep wells. What do you call those nooks and crannies? what do you call in English mapping it is. Yeah. Waffle House. Yeah. They're really Nice deep-sea coach and a lot of Sierra remade ours pacman. Oh cute wait. What are the little dots in this one? Sheri's berries I think right and cotton candy. I like the birthday cake more. Yes, that's amazing. These are amazing. Kellogg's makes eggo right. But these are not under the eggo brand I. Don't think are they know? They're not. So you don't have to leg that is really interesting for her. Nope you don't have to go your Lego Mike. Okay next we are trying this is a product that I find very exciting and unique foster farms. The chicken people they have a new product called bold bites. They're marketed as kids bowl by. So they're like you get these in the fridge section and they're small individually wrapped packs like pouches of chicken and they come in flavors we have Taco and pizza today and what I really love about these portion controlled. It's sort of like saying, Hey, kids you can snack on chicken like like from being I would just dump this pouch. It tastes good into super on top of a salad it's fifty calories worth-a-chicken. Looks Amazing what are we trying? Why did you get all the fun flavors like Taco, Pizza, I can't open. which WANNA restarting with them pastor, which can open pizza Jamie can open I. Don't have the strength. s these high in sodium. No. Not really right. Three clear to read the sodium for those of us who don't have our reading. It's three fifty, which is not terribly. No this is good. I would not say tastes like pizza but I would put this on a pizza at fifty calories worth. Let's see. We got spicy lally trion. That's good but I feel like it's a stretch to call at pizza. Wait I a little bit of like Italian seasoning. Okay. Yeah. No I like it I like the concept I like creative. Let's try the TACO. Just I'm impressed and it tastes like white meat chicken breast doesn't taste like unidentifiable parts of a chicken. TACO measure making tacos. That is excellent first of all. This is what I would do. I would take those new cauliflower Ortega Taco shells that they sent us same thing and I would just like loaded up and make a chicken Taco out of this. Don't goods while he? Put it over, put it over cauliflower rice and then scuba salsa. These? This is great. This particular flavor. Terrific I don't WanNa give any preliminary ratings but it will rate. Hi.
"wan" Discussed on The WAN Show Podcast
"How much does it playstation five costume? I'm kind of expecting between five and six hundred dollars like one rose two or five fifty. I think this is gonNA. Be a pretty expensive. council launch in Lake. Sure inflation, whatever, but like I yeah I think. The price tag is going to be relatively high I. Think the Blu Ray one is six hundred. I think that people are going to be. I think that what happens is when you start. Building Gaming Consoles. That are basically PC's as you start to get closer to pc like pricing and Sony has absolutely done a lot of work here with their custom chip. Working with AMD timing it just right, so they're taking advantage of a brand new graphics architecture at the time that they're launching They've definitely hit man. The timing is so perfect to line up with AMD's current then to architecture like zen three is probably going to be better, but not in the same way that. was better than than one, and plus like these are very very capable CPU cores. AMD is firing on all cylinders in terms of delivering CPI that have fantastic value, the timing of this thing for it to be as timeless as possible is outstanding. But. This is still PC grade silicon with PC. Grade Silicon yields, these are graphics. are graphics cores. These are DNA to graphics courses aimed is not even shipping yet. These are like these are fresh out of the foundry I would expect. The yields are not amazing at this point in time. I'm expecting six hundred bucks and I'm GonNa. What I'M GONNA go out there and I'm GonNa, make I'm GonNa make guests here and I'm going to say that the digital one is GonNa save you. Man, part of me is tempted to say fifty bucks, but what I also kind of wonder is, if Sony can be making up some of that margin on the back end, knowing that they're going to get digital rather than a physical purchases where they have to bake in retailer margin. Who now that's an interesting thought. What if the all digital version was like way cheaper? Like not, we're not just talking the cost of an optical drive, forty bucks, fifty bucks, sixty bucks, or whatever we're talking like they go okay. We want everybody buying this all digital version. Let's make it like two hundred dollars cheaper like hundred and fifty dollars cheaper. Do you think they could do like six hundred dollars for forty-nine? I don't think they'll do that. You don't think so, let's see. Sorry what's the average number of game? Someone buys because if let's say retailer margin is somewhere in the neighborhood of like ten to twenty percent, so that's six twelve dollars so if they could count on people to buy what six games maybe remember guys not everybody has a massive game collection like thinking back to when we were actually kids than didn't have a lot of money. I had like four games from ice mass. That was it. And like you would rent either games I. Guess Renting's not really an option anymore. Attach rate of nine point six games per cons nine point six games. Okay, so let's say let's say they can assume ten. Then let's let's say they tried to assume ten. So, that would be maybe another hundred bucks. Okay, that's probably a safe bet, but then if they save some costs on the BLU ray drive, maybe they could do one hundred and fifty dollars cheaper, four fifty for an all digital version. Everyone's saying one hundred dollars Max in the chat. You know what I'm. GonNa, do it. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA DO GONNA formalize it. I'm going to say I. Think it's GonNa be one hundred and fifty dollars cheaper I think they're going to count on that. All digital purchases margin. I think they're gonNA. Count on more than just the ten AAA games I think they're going to figure out ways to Sell more digitally to playstation five owners I. Think they're gonNA count on. Attach on attached if things like their do. They did their own headset now. I'm counting on it. I'm on. I'm saying it. Cheaper. What's your? What's your? Bet Luke remember. This is the man show. We can never take back these words unless we like really edem. Really eat them hard. Let me. Tell you crow. Crow is not great. I if it is the hundred and fifty. I wouldn't be like flabbergasted, but I don't think it's going to be one hundred and fifty I would vote against that I. Okay, you can. Go, with like a hundred bucks one hundred, the safe bet, safe bet, La- frontier. Safe Bet Lucas. Safe that after I'm like? No, you need the different council But yeah I think I. Think Probably About one hundred dollars Delta or I think they might do something weird. Do you like seventy? No, no, you can't do that like rule. I don't even know why it matters, but I had this beaten to me when I was working retail pricing like twitter, and that's what that's what we'd call it. We call it a twitter price or between your skew. And I remember one of the one of the classic examples of this was I was talking to my boss about this. This is pretty early in my tenure as a product manager and I was like hey, why are six hundred hoses six hundred and forty was like a weird hard drive. Capacity is the capacity I was like. Wire six hundred and forty terabytes. Or gigabytes drives terrified. Why are six hundred and forty gigabyte drives so unpopular? They're the best cost per gig out of everything in that we carry. And my boss is just like. Yeah. You know what I honestly couldn't really explain it to you. That's what I would buy for myself at home, but five hundred GIG and one terabyte outsell it six to one both of them on either side, even though they are worse value per gig than six hundred and forty, and he's just like. Yeah it. They just don't sell. That's why you have like good better best because you have good so that the people. People, who are you know are going to have to buy the lowest end one don't feel like they're missing out on so much. Because the next one up is not that much better, and you have best because by the time you spend this much as well spend that much. That's how a product works I. Don't make the rules, so there's no way that they would do. Like a seventy dollars difference I will bet my I'll bet my beard on it. You're already betting your beard on shirt sales. You can't bet your beard on that LT STORE DOT COM. Dang.

"Yes, yours probably isn't but for a lot of people most of their stuff. So unless the playstation five is like the centerpiece of your setup. It's kind of hard to make it fit in I. Don't think it's tacky though to have something that looks slightly different. I, I think that is a a WHO IS GONNA. Get Spicy think. Down Boring old person opinion. Did you just okay, boomer me. A little bit, did you in okay boomer? Okay, today was the coolest looking console. coolest looking defined back in the day because you and I come from different days. That Gimme a year Gimme a year. intendo sixty four nintendo sixty four was the coolest console, the clear ones the beer one. Problem. I was not no. No, the problem is that I was nine. To okay past. It still cool. It is how you. Swift! It's cooled. Ones because they're cool. You're right. It's cool, but it's cool to carry around in my backpack as an intendo switch, not cool to have in my like adult living room. Having like adult guests over that are like. Oh that's adorable. Is that your? Is that your kids game station six thousand, or whatever and I'm like Onell? That's actually you know. That that's a six hundred dollar gaming machine that I spend my last three paychecks on like a really. And Look I'm not the kind of person as you know very well. That cares that much about image. I'm just saying that I don't WanNa. Look at it, and if I don't WanNa look at it, people who come into my house probably don't want to look at it there either I don't think it fits in and and the Nintendo. Sixty four remember comes from a different era of gaming. Okay, my only friend, who had an end sixty four K.. Actually I had two friends that had end sixty fours both of them. The game console was not hooked up to the main TV in the living room. It was hooked up in. The basement or in their family room online the secondary crappy TV because it was like the kids TV for playing silly games on while none and dad were. Watching watching boring boring. Boring device exactly because I was nine in their boring ru exactly. So, what a chat said Lucas do. Oh, what a jerk! I don't know I definitely. Hear where you're coming from but I feel like. Hope I hope this is the transition out of that to a certain degree, but not as far as we were at before. Now is a time of change. Their exciting things happening. Okay like this consoles here. Okay, you have a magic genie that can grant you a wish, and for whatever reason you picked the stupidest wish ever because of. The best wish would be to wish for all the superpowers of all the Avengers, all combined but for whatever reason you ask for the ability to have a magic playstation or xbox that plays all games across all platforms. Not thinking straight. Yeah, YOU'RE! You're not thinking straight. Okay, so you wish to have a magic xbox. Playstation. Okay and You're allowed to pick what it looks like okay. Do you pick one that looks like the xbox series x or the playstation? Five position five really? You're stuck with it forever. It plays every game, so there's no reason to ever replace it. You are stuck with it forever. Okay Series X. that's what I thought. That's I think that's what I thought. His Pool White is gonNA show where more the because I'm stuck with it forever. I'm going to have this thing for sixty years now. You have eroded your position Sir I have the high ground. Obi Wan usually wins technically from the low ground. He is technically usually you beats. Could you be slightly more nerdy? Please anikin jumped above him usually wins from the logo anyways, but I. If if it stayed in immaculate condition I would stick with the PS. Forever it is going to like the thing about a box is that it's timeless. Right whereas like. Tower is not very timeless. Yeah and the Saturn. Five mazing, no matter how not timeless it is the. Just becomes. You just compare the playstation five to the Saturn five rocket. In it. Just because something doesn't look like it fits perfectly in the now. It doesn't necessarily mean that it's unattractive. Classics Cool still even if they don't fit in with modern things. With my wife think. Perfect your classic. weathered. Trust me, yeah, yeah, no, I'm not I'm not. Throwing things that yet. She's she's not a great throw, so she could be throwing things at him. She could be missing. You can tell her I said that. For aim is terrible. I've seen her. Try to throw stuff. It's bad. It's bad now. You hear that Emma. Up It's. Time. Massive variety of other positive skills With. If I'm telling you. You said that Luke says you have other skills that make up for it. She has many other make for this playstation. Five that I have that still looks like a playstation five in sixty years, someone comes to my house and goes. Why do you have that? Weird like alien, tower, looking the. In driven thing on a TV for some reason, because it sixty years from now we're not using TV's for games anymore. It's a it starts a conversation I don't know I don't necessarily think that it not looking like a board voice. Sorry, not looking like a boring black box that has no real detail except for holes and a single logo and some fins at the top. and. I'm not like to be clear. The xbox series x is totally fine. On offensive and kind of boring. Nothing it up in someone's house. It would probably it, Erie well with their setup, it would look great. It's like Microsoft learned absolutely nothing from the last generation of trying to be like. You know. Me worked for everything. Was All of the that? Whereas Sony, just like? Yeah, it's for gaming. Yeah and that's and I think that approach in that identity is captured designs of the new consoles I. think that's fair to say. I think that's very fair to say. And I think that also is slightly mirrored. In that as far as I know, I could definitely be wrong here as far as I know. The experts series x always comes drive destroys. I don't know I. I do think so I do think it does come with one. Wait no runners. You know I thought they have streaming. Only edition I haven't been paying nearly as much attention to xbox stuff, 'cause. It's been kinda slow for a bit. Blah Blah Blah. Blah Blah Blah Blah. Firm move. Likely. Yeah okay. I don't think it's been actually confirmed strictly speaking, but it wouldn't surprise me at all. Do you want to speculate on pricing so I said six hundred dollars earlier guys. I was just throwing a number out. There you know. Canadian USD six hundred dollars. Probably I duNno Canadian, would be like four hundred and fifty USD, so I was just throwing a random number out there. What are your expectations? Last time around? If I recall correctly, it was four hundred us for the PS four, and then it was five hundred xbox. xbox one. It came with a connect that. Is that sounds that ring a bell that sound about right? I think so. This is off the top of my head. Guys don't quote me. Don't quote me on that. One acts when it launched costs five hundred dollars but I. The, the the xbox one had dropped in price by the time, the one x came around yet, but that was like the new consul of the time sort of okay, and it costs five hundred bucks all right, so hit me with it..

But I think the community is a whole actually watched it and gets it and if you watch the whole thing it's fairly conclusive okay. I didn't really expect you're going to have additional comments. When asked about it? Cool all right. Well thank you so much guys you guys rock all right so let's move onto subject news. The Rx fifty six hundred x t launch was a bit of a fiasco. I actually clarified it a little bit on the M. I.. Retiring hiring or not. What's going on live stream? But I feel like I should do it more formally here because I did not cover it. Adequately in our launch video of the fifty six hundred x not and I did a very bad job of making the situation better on electric. Yeah so you know what I might watch eight both of those things after the livestream and with that context on it was just hilarious. Terrible terrible so amdi released the Rx fifty six hundred x t on Tuesday the twenty second and virtually everyone's been talking about nothing but the V. BIOS update from zero. So what went down is is we had intended to do are fifty six hundred x t content as like an over clocking experiment with the card. Because we'd Gotten Not in a wink and a nudge that there was a lot of over clocking headroom and I'm not going to say who the wink nudge came from. Because I don't know how much of this communication is indeed but we had like a shot in the ribs and that there was a lot of over probably headed this so we structured the entire video around that and then we like found out about about this vows update we got our card updated. Our numbers are fine. which was why I thought it was not a big deal because I got the sequence of events out of order? I didn't know how how last minute it was and effectively. We were still waiting on a response to find out like what's the deal here. Is this via BIOS. Update a one shot thing on just this one particular card like engineering sample. By the way we noticed that that over clocking headroom that was hinted at to us like well. This seems to take up a lot of it. So what's what So anyway we but we went ahead. We overclock the card we did end. We got better performance numbers with our over clocking testing. And because I didn't know what I didn't realize because I spaced out while Anthony was talking to me about the situation was that. AMD didn't have a coherent aren't plan. For updating some of the cards that would go to end users that were already updated like to me. It was nothing murder because I was like. Who Cares? We we get prelaunch. firmware updates all the time as long as they're available to the end user it doesn't matter because they will never see this pre launch date of the product but in this case ace because updating the BIOS of graphics card is a non trivial matter for most users. Some people were going to end up stuck with with it and so it was kind of a problem because they were GonNa Watch review like ours where we take this card. That's fast stock and even faster over clocked and it was going to be slower at stock doc. Even though it would theoretically have a bunch of clocking had lots of people don't overclock their graphics cards. I don't bother anymore mines. Aw I understand why most people wouldn't. I've just always really particularly enjoyed graphics card over clocking. I don't necessarily know why I also mostly played beat sabre. So he man you were talking about the like literally runs on a quest. We'll know because okay I was talking the how the pulling rates for the tracking which the higher I'll just saying like if there's a min maxing Taber player out there it's probably you. I'm actually really getting pretty good. There's reasonably popular songs that I'm getting close to cracking like top one hundred four I and by the way did Jaden have any response to my significantly tone I did oh I want him to know. Okay well now he. Yeah Yeah I know. Jaden one of Luke's colleagues at floatplane. Technically my colleague as well even does most of the work he he went out of his way to crap on my parade. At Luke's yeah I asked. I asked him if he could do it when I was trying to full Combo Supernova Donovan expert plus and Beats Sabor and anyway. He did it but he did it. Really sloppily quite frequently and my score is nearly fifty thousand in higher than his so And I have full Combo now so there you go. Didn't there's your challenge. Anyway I have I have a screen shot to have a proof screen shot so anthony was super upset about the situation with the fifty six hundred x t because fortunately he had been busy with something else for the two days prior to the via BIOS update otherwise he would have basically had to do is testing twice. Yeah and then because the communication around the situation was so terrible we. We weren't able to message it correctly in our video because they were still like. Hey Yeah let us look into this. What do you mean let you look into it? You know what you're doing now you have to no no now so you just tell us and this is just the kind of sloppy stuff. That is really frustrating for us where it's like just communicate Kate you have one job as pr of well press Wolfson's Y- one job to be there. They're one job is probably to mislead you in that moment. I don't think so what's the point it's GonNa blow up. Yeah but your initial video sounds more positive but my initial video doesn't have to be more or less positive it can just be informative. Yeah Hey hey by the way. There's a handful of cards out there that have this byles. Here's how you update it. I don't have years ago. Don't have a solution to have a solution. BIOS thing yeah they probably suspect most end users even with your video from forever ago. Aren't it can be able to do it. So yeah and upgrading. Viruses skirts is kind of scary. It is realistically you should have A. UPS Most people they have a ups. So that's what happened. I'm sorry I screwed it up. It was not Anthony's fault. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA throw. MD under the bus a little bit here but not directly necessarily meanwhile on team Green Bay launched the art twenty sixty Ko for three hundred dollars just prior to the embargo leftovers fifty five hundred x t at the time. It seemed like A. Hey look at me. We've got a low price twenty six to be Egypt but gamers next is quickly discovered something interesting about it. Unlike previous are twenty sixty s which used the t you one one oh six which is a smaller actual diets a completely different. GPU The our tax twenty six Ko from Vga the specific card used a t you one four derived GPU so this is a bigger ship. It's an entirely different processors. The same aim one. That's in the next twenty eighty and then it's just got some Khuda course. That are fused off in order to hack it back down to artifacts twenty sixty levels of performance and it kind of sounds like bidding which it kind of is these might have been. You know bad to you. Yeah however it has performance implications for applications like blender where improvements are of up to forty seven percent are possible because architecturally. The chip is actually quite different. So it's unknown known whether that GP will make its way onto other sort of bargain basement twenty sixty cards evey. Jay was apparently not aware that they were receiving different. GPS FOR THE KO. But I find that a little bit hard to believe what. How could you possibly not know? That is a pretty engineering engineering centric company. A lot of people think that is one of those like slap a slap our label on it and resell it type of company. Because this in the early days they were more like that. So you know back when I'm talking back when it was like beat F G Vija Asia and I'm trying to remember who the heck else even gene. But the reason why misbehaved G. is entirely why they're taking advantage of their lifetime warranty on Sir. They offered it. I mean it's not my fault. Yeah they were anyway so the point is way back then. It was pretty common for are up just brandon companies to take graphics cards that were made by actual engineering companies. And then figure out some other way to to add value to it whether it was through through game bundles that they negotiated or t shirts that they put in the sticker. A poster in a game or great customer service. Whatever whatever the case may be but over the years I mean if I recall correctly they bought chain tax motherboard? Or was it. I can't remember. They bought epochs parks. It was either epochs are chain tech. They bought one one of them when not motherboard company like ditch there enthusiast division or something like that but they have actual engineers on staff. Now I find it very very hard to believe. Leave that given how deeply involved in the hardware and firmware engineering and like over clocking tools. I find it very hard to believe. They accidentally put the wrong chip or like didn't realize it was a completely different chip on their on their cards because they don't look the same so here hold on a second. That's what I was GONNA say. He's like visually different. Yeah it's not care. Let's find a die shot of a not one of four. Hopefully my screamers here okay. So here's a to you WANNA for. Unfortunately I can't see Douai size. I wish I could To you know six die size so anyway. That's that's the die so to you. WanNa sex is has four hundred and forty five millimeter square to you on. Oh four I size. Five hundred and forty five millimeter square. They are physically different sides. Yeah like if you just like look at them they look different. One of them is bigger. I just I find it very very hard to believe. You're cooler would almost certainly change. I'm not necessarily but the would have to change. It's a different chip hip. So they're more power delivery so one of the things that I think Emerson X.. Is still working on you. Guys should definitely check out his follow up. Coverage of this is whether the six based ones might have more over clocking headroom because it's less power-hungry chip so you might end up being a trade off no one saying saying like don't don't buy dough by it or anything because you know it's like they're both fine..
