Raspberry Pi demolished by monster 128-core ARM CPU! (20:53) ~ Jeff Geerling by JasonCarswell in RaspberryPi

I would use arm64-v8 based laptop with linux if gaming with steam or lutris worked on it. I Used some python and c coding ages ago and I liked linux.

Linux build script was so interesting to play with, everything was so simple like typing ./configure and make, building for specific hardware etc.

But I only study engineering now, for it matlab is enough coding for me.

I highly recommend the RISC laptops. The ARM Macbook doesn't get all hot and loud from the fans when you build a program or run heavy software, it's really very nice, My intel macbook would get so hot on the bottom I'd flip it upside down when doing a build that took a few minutes. I don't think I'll go back to the x64 architecture in a laptop, I really hope we get some other options soon besides macbooks or those fake tablet-laptop surfacebook things

I am waiting to replace my macbook m1 with something else that runs an ARM based RISC processor but I can run linux on

I am waiting for ryzen 8000 based laptop with ddr5, usb 4 and pcie 5. The apu will blow away some external graphics card, my 5800u is limited by 15w tdp...

Ok, I admit thats cool AF, but this comparison is hardly fair. I looked up that chip and it costs $5800, while the best Rasperry Pi's are like $200. I'm probably not gonna look at that to self host a small website, that looks like enterprise hardware. Pretty amazing tech tho, server farms would use way less electricity on those I would think.

Spoiler: Doesn't run Linux.

Cool that they even have a buck-boost converter on board so it can run from 1.3V to 5.5V efficiently (on the schematic I even see control of the converter's mode to make it more efficient for light loads versus heavy loads). This is made to run really low-power.

I want to get some for my niece and nephew, so they can learn to geek out.

As for myself, I might consider getting some to maybe build FreeNAS type things with some of my many hard drives and network them with a server to share all the information that wants to be free. I could make my own bamboo cases and everything. But I'd need a little funding and a lot of motivation and time.

I'm still waiting for the next design revision for the RP4 that fixes some of the overheating issues. All of my RP3's work fine with just the needed heatsinks, and of course I don't use them for gaming, but rather just for running presentations and playing media. :3

The only thing I own is an RPI3. I haven't bothered with torrenting anything years. I guess I'll try that as a last ditch effort if I can't find anywhere else.

Why not a torrent site? If you own the game, you are allowed to download a copy of it.

Hmm, I thought size mattered with this model and would have assumed they'd drop the gpios, flip the USB port 90 degrees and thus making it half the height/size.

Drop the ethernet, bump the price to 20 for the top model and include the Wifi module and you got a stew I'd eat.

Good to know.

/s/FLOSS/comments/mki/wireguard_a_floss_application_and_communication/

WireGuard is a free and open-source software application and communication protocol that implements virtual private network (VPN) techniques to create secure point-to-point connections in routed or bridged configurations. It is run as a module inside the Linux kernel and aims for better performance than the IPsec and OpenVPN tunneling protocols. ~ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WireGuard

Wireguard is way easier to set up, and much faster.

Show notes:

" I replaced my 3 inch PVC vertical hydroponic setup with this new 1.5 inch design which is easier to maintain, uses less water and energy, and practically doubles my marketable production. This version produces 133 heads of lettuce or comparable 8.5 inch green vegetable and contains an additional 18 sites for larger plants such as herbs and kale, for a total capacity of 151 sites . I currently harvest 22 quality plants weekly. I raised my system to 15 inches to allow for more nutrient (Chilled homemade nutrient on YouTube) storage, which is currently approximately 45 gallons (container volume 54 gallons). I engineered and built my own lighting system to accommodate the height of my towers. I used 6 inch vent pipe and LED light bulbs with a 20% reduced lumen output and 30% increase in energy savings per fixture over my previous 4 bulb T5 fixtures. With the light bulb rebates my cost for each fixture was under $50, vs. $135 for the T5 fixtures with bulbs. I hung my lights vertically to access my plants easily. I am continuing to run my lighting during off peak hours via timers to save energy and money, and my this system is partially powered with renewable energy via the 9.1kw PV solar system we had installed for our home.
