    Well of course some variables need to be held constant, but it's not acceptable for products costing hundreds of millions or billions of dollars. Somebody knows.

    I think the CPU makers are playing games by not releasing detailed specs. There should be a graph of the speed vs. number of cores and load.

    I plan to do some heavy Sony testing right before Xmas and then I'll decide what to do on December 30. Most likely I would be building a system in January. At this point I'm not at all sure what it will be.

    But we don't know the frequency that the CPU will run other than one core reaches 4.7GHz and 16 cores operate at 3.5GHz. I'd like to see what 6 cores or 8 cores will do. Does anyone test for this?

    According to all the peoples on the interwebs AMD is great and Intel isn't. However, I'm not convinced that AMD is much faster per core. We'll see soon enough.

    Ryzen

    Cost is not much consideration since I keep computers for many years. I just want more PCIe lanes without all those slow cores. The Ryzen 9 3950X will be compatible in the majority of AM4 motherboards, although in order to take advantage of the 24 PCIe 4.0 lanes on the CPU, an X570...

    Tele conferencing

    We use Skype and it often sucks. WebEx is much better, but I understand it costs more per seat for an organization. I have noticed some smaller companies using the Zoom. It seems OK from the outsider perspective.

    The tower is normally only a half meter away from me, so heat is an issue especially in the summer. :( The electric company congratulated me for using significantly more power last year than similar homes. ;)

    Ryzen

    There is quite a gap between the 105W 3950X and 280W 3960X. 280W is too much power just to get a decent number of PCIe lanes. :(

    I never had those type of phones. Work provided the BlackBerry devices, starting with one that had a crude, gray LCD and then progressing to later models until the iPhone destroyed the BlackBerry.

    It reminds me of a defective CPU in the 1990s that had some calculation errors. How do normal Windows users (not Linulux or game players) know if it works of not?

    I thought the random number was important for encryption functions. The defective CPUs produce a fixed "random" number.

    Backing up memory cards on the go without a laptop

    My NPS-10s units worked fine. ~43,000 images and a few videos. Four copies were made on the two devices and less than the 2TB of each SSD was used. I charged the devices every 2-3 days just to be safe (some places were 100% solar powered with lead batteries and inverters for the 220-240V)...

    There are plenty of 50mm options for Nikon. Why would you use a fast prime like a 28/1.4 for landscapes? Is it really the best choice in that FL?

    Most people have a 24-70 and 70-200 of some sort even if they have primes. The problem with the ultra-wides is the perspective deteriorates rapidly when not level. I prefer the TS/E, Nikkor PC, etc. lenses even if they are not as wide. Shift-stitching is also possible for static subjects to...

    Why, do you want one? 12 mm is not so crazy wide compared to other lenses already and one would expect a shorter Z mount lens to be better with the shorter backfocus.

    I think it depends more on the specific worker and percentage of time saved with a better CPU. You must take into account the level or workers using them, e.g., GS6, GS9, GS12, higher? What are the fully burdened costs?

    Yeah, that's the most likely outcome. I hope it doesn't become an industry standard in my lifetime.

    Mirrorless Cameras (MILC) and Lenses

    S*ny is doubling down on disappointment. The a9 II is massively underwhelming. It basically contains the same sensor as the a9 with some minor updates. Nikon would add an S to the name suffix or Canon an N. S*ny has the nerve to use II. Now there is still that giant gap between 24 and 61...

    I would hope that some users want PCIe lanes and don't need 24 cores, but if there is a cheaply made CPU, then all bots are off.

    Both the AMD and Intel mainstream CPUs are crippled in the number of PCIe lanes. The new Intel Cascade Latex looks like a half-assed upgrade from the 9900x series.

    Maybe ATT is off the Oath now? All these big telco shenanigans are why I mostly use the 3rd party emails. It's just that there are too many old ATT and Verixons emails to find them all.

    Not really. I suppose now it would be best to wait and see how many GHz can be produced with their HEDT CPUs that have a good number of PICe lanes. I keep thinking about that Windows 10 and will need it sooner rather than later.
