Amd processors: ryzen 9 5950x and 5900x with high clock rates in benchmark database

The first results for AMD’s upcoming upper class processors Ryzen 9 5950X and Ryzen 9 5900X can be found in Geekbench’s benchmark database. Especially interesting are the details about the clock frequency, because: The 16-core Ryzen 9 5950X reaches a peak of 5.01 GHz and the 12-core Ryzen 9 5950X 4.95 GHz.

The values are 100 to 150 MHz above the maximum boost clock frequencies stated by AMD. Both test results were uploaded from different PCs with different motherboards (Ryzen 9 5950X with Asus ROG Strix X570-I Gaming; Ryzen 9 5900X with MSI MEG X570 Goodlike).

The JSON values from Geekbench show that the processors were able to maintain their clock rates for a good two minutes on individual CPU cores. Only occasionally did they drop back to around 4.8 GHz.

Amd gaming processors: ryzen 5000 well available in germany

About a month and a half after AMD unveiled the Ryzen 5000 aka Vermeer processor family for the AM4 CPU fang, the four models are largely readily available in Germany. 20 handlers can deliver the six-core Ryzen 5 5600X, even more the eight-core Ryzen 7 5800X.

Despite the currently very good availability of the two CPUs, however, all stores exceed AMD’s price recommendations by more than 10 percent: the Ryzen 5 5600X is available from 340 euros, the Ryzen 7 5800X from 500 euros. The RRP’s are 300 and 450 euro, respectively.

The picture is similar for the top model Ryzen 9 5950X with 16 CPU cores: More than a dozen retailers have the model in stock starting at 890 euros. AMD’s recommended price is 800 euros. The 12-core Ryzen 9 5900X stands out with prices starting at around 705 euros – the RRP is 550 euros, 22 percent below that.

Whatsapp on desktop can make voice and video calls

WhatsApp allows users to make voice and video calls in the future even on the PC. So far only messages can be sent. The calls are end-to-end encrypted, like all communication via the Facebook subsidiary and of course free of charge.

Desktop app also allows vertical and horizontal screens, interlocutors appear in a separate window that users can adjust to their screen size. This remains in the foreground.

To make a call via the desktop app, you first have to install it and connect it to your mobile device. For security, this can also be done via biometric authentication, i.e. fingerprint or facial recognition. WhatsApp says it can’t access it. If the desktop app is running, the calls can be started just as easily as in the mobile version with a click on the Horers icon.

Smarthome with home assistant: be careful when updating the mqtt broker

Numerous users of the smarthome server software Home Assistant experienced a surprise: devices communicating with the server via MQTT could no longer transmit data or be controlled from the server. ESP in-house components in particular, but also ZigBee devices, were affected.

This is due to an update to Home Assistant’s MQTT broker. This add-on enables communication between devices using the MQTT protocol. With the new version 6.0.1 However, the automatic detection (discovery) of these devices no longer works as before.

You should not accept this update offer for now.

Wave of warnings: beware of spam mails from 'real' apply'realen' anwalten

At the moment there are a lot of fake warning mails in circulation in the name of real lawyers. The messages contain links to websites that are most likely designed to harvest personal information such as access data. However, a distribution of Trojans could also take place.

The State Criminal Police Office (LKA) of Lower Saxony warns against such mails in a current message. They explicitly point out that the addresses of real lawyers and law firms given as senders are not the authors of the mails.

News says receivers should refrain from using protected movies and protected music. The following is a sum to be paid immediately. To get more information about the case and initiate payment, victims should click on links in the mail. What’s behind the URLs is currently unclear, as the LKA says many sites are already offline.

Fourth mobile network: 1&1 drillisch accepts offer from telefonica

The roll-out of a fourth mobile network in Germany can start: 11 Drillisch has accepted a contract offer from its competitor Telefonica Deutschland for national roaming, the company announced Monday. Final details of the contract are to be clarified by May, but the agreement is already binding.

The cooperation with Telefonica is a prerequisite for Drillisch to build its own network. Germany currently has mobile networks operated by Deutsche Telekom, Vodafone and Telefonica (O2). Drillisch wanted to become number 4. Telefonica had presented its latest proposal as "a competitive final offer that is fair to both parties" . 11 parent company United Internet has to pay rent for the capacity used in the O2 network.

No own grid without roaming

2019 had 11 Drillisch buys frequency spectrum for around 1.1 billion euros for the first time at auction. However, Drillisch did not want to use this for its own network until its cell phone customers were not in a radio hole during the years-long construction phase away from the first locations, but were instead supplied via national roaming.

Google tv basic makes tv dumb on demand

Google is developing a basic mode for its upcoming television platform Google TV. This mode is intended for the variant of Google TV, which will be preinstalled on TVs from brands such as TCL and Sony in the future. It gives users a greatly reduced interface if desired, which locks out smart features like apps, movie or series recommendations and the Google Assistant.

The Basic Mode was discovered by the 9to5Google magazine in a preview version of Android TV 12. Google confirmed to 9to5Google that the feature is primarily intended for Google TV – a rehashed user interface based on Android TV. Manufacturers such as Sony and TCL have already announced that they will deliver future TVs with Google TV.

L+f: the riddle of the missing 9s

The American crypto expert Matt Blaze tells in his blog a highly interesting and probably true spy story. According to this story, spies were provided with instructions via regular radio transmissions. In it, an automaton voice read out numbers in Spanish. The radio station was located in Cuba, the receiver or receivers could be anywhere within the reception range of the shortwave transmitter – in other words, just about anywhere.

The messages were encoded, as usual in the spy field, with the provably unbreakable one-time-pad encryption. To decipher them, one needed the corresponding codebook with the corresponding real random numbers. But Blaze (and apparently others) noticed something odd about the messages: Some of them did not contain 9s. So in the complete announcement there was no "nueve" in front of.
