    Why did we abandon hydrogen cars so quickly?

    No it can't - all current aircraft use in-wing tanks, but in order to get that kind of higher energy density requires over 10k psi tanks. You can't do that with anything small enough to fit inside any aircraft wing...

    AMD Reportedly Increases RX 6000 Series Board Partner Pricing by 10%

    But not for all makers - NVIDIA is up! It just shows that TSMC are running into even more supply issues than last year! The console makers also all universally agreed that they can't supply as many consoles as planned! It's going to be another year for fully-vaccinated port/factory/ship...

    Why did we abandon hydrogen cars so quickly?

    There are ten different precise formulations for the gas you put in your car that all sell under the same label., but modem injectors don't need you to mess around with manual Choke. Mass-produced Chemistry has never been an exact science (only "good enough") I'm sure that all of these...

    AMD Readies Radeon RX 6500 XT and RX 6400 Graphics Cards

    At that point, the power limit would completely castrate performance. The card likely uses 50w (based on the dual-slot cooler plus active fan) (and the m.2 connector can only supply 7w). Then, you would have t add the additional overhead of transferring the video output over pcie. Yo really...

    Why did we abandon hydrogen cars so quickly?

    Not in H2 form. The density is so low for compressed H2, the curb weight of a Mirai and a Tesla Model 3 is almost identical. They can't put out nearly the same amount of peak energy of BEVs running that Fuel Cell stack (fine for a commuter car,, but terrible for larger vehicles that have to...

    Intel 12th Gen Core "Locked" Processors Arrive Mid-Jan, Possible Specs Surface

    Because their yields are terrible?

    Why did we abandon hydrogen cars so quickly?

    no, they're not. Consumer fuel Cell efficiencies top-out at around 50%,, and in the end of the day, both store the energy into as buffer battery and use that electricity to drive the wheels. The delivery overhead of the electric network vastly outpaces the combined production costs of clean...

    Intel 12th Gen Core "Locked" Processors Arrive Mid-Jan, Possible Specs Surface

    So, once-again, I called it: 1. There's no availability of their uncut 8 + 8 + 32 eu big boy at anywhere near MSRP two weeks after launch. 2. Intel's waiting 3 months to release the rest of their more-competitive-priced lineup, and the wait for those dreamy Core i3s could be twice as...

    Intel Core i9-12900K E-Cores Only Performance

    Well anyone that concerned about v\cloud density would be better suited porting their software to Arm Neoverse

    Intel Core i9-12900K E-Cores Only Performance

    I told folks who cant stop making love with Alder Lake that the performance in E-core-only servers would be around 60% (these less dense Xeons will all turbo over 4.,5 ghz, so terrible webserver latency). and the lack of SMT means poor database performance And, when you target those isolated...

    Fujitsu Launches New 8Mbit FRAM Guaranteeing Writing Endurance up to 100 Trillion Times

    No, it's not some miracle drug (even though it has it's roots in Resistive Ram, it doesn't have the longevity: SLC Flash: rated for 100,000 writes. https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/architecture-and-technology/optane-technology/delivering-new-levels-of-endurance-article-brief.html...

    Fujitsu Launches New 8Mbit FRAM Guaranteeing Writing Endurance up to 100 Trillion Times

    Not even close - the lifetime writes are the same as existing flash memory. You just get lower latency access times! This is still your only option for nv ram with "virtually" unlimited writes.
