Google has released information about an advancement(originally appeared on DDR3 in 2014 but Google's Project Zero helped mitigate it in 2015) in the Rowhammer exploit they have called Half Double Rowhammer that essentially affects all platforms and memory as it attacks how DRAM functions and therefore no hardware or software can prevent it. Only firmware logic to detect it but the previous mitigations are no longer effective.

As physics would prove, the smaller and smaller the DRAM cells get thanks to advancement in technology, the more effective this exploit becomes as rows of cells are now closer together and therefore more cells can have their bits flipped.
It's quite interesting and worth researching if you want more information on how the attack works.

Google ran into an issue where certain instructions yielded incorrect results. As it turns out, some hardware defects managed to get past testing and caused silent corruption.

Artist is suing capcom for $12million. Apparently Capcom stole multiple images over the course of a few years from one of your books.

As much as 80 images/assets were used without permission.

Quote:
when Devil May Cry and Resident Evil 4 were released in 2001 and 2005, respectively. It seems that Juracek wasn't sure there was copyright infringement at first, but sensitive data from the November 2020 Capcom ransomware attack confirmed her suspicions.

"The file names for at least one of the images from the Capcom hacked files are the same file names as those used on the CD-ROM," reads the lawsuit.

Source I got information from:
https://phys.org/news/2021-06-ultra-...phene-ten.html

Original Source: https://www.cam.ac.uk/research/news/...imes-more-data

University of Cambridge research shows replacing carbon-based overcoats (COCs), with graphene layers(these layers protect the physical platter that stores data) allows for an incredible increase of data density by 10 fold because they are significantly thinner and requires less layers simultaneously. Allowing for significantly larger capacity HDDs all while improving every area of importance from COCs.

Jurassic World Evolution is coming out, A sequel to the 2018 park builder.




Probably just another hollow cash grab by FDev like the previous game to accompany the Jurassic Park movie coming out next year.

Not to sound like a smarta$$ but I was, FDev did the last one prior to Jurassic World Lost Kingdom coming out so it only made sense for them to do the next one too, Plus they built in way way too many limitations into the first game.

No mod support, Island creation was a complete no show, Some mechanics just seemed way too limiting.

Regarding the contents of that article, TSMC isn't as far ahead as people believe. There 7nm is still behind Intels 10nm, they only surpassed Intel with their 7nm+ node.

The best way to measure node advantages across these companies is transistor/mm^2. Still the most effective way to have the best performance is to have the best architecture. All the leading nodes are to close for them to be outright better in every metric. You need smarter architecture to be the best. That's why Nvidia still dominates AMD even though technically it's a 8nm vs 7nm battle. There density is similar so the better architecture wins.

So I call BS on that rumour. Nvidia will work with whoever can provide them enough supply and best price. AMD are contractually obligated to use TSMC and it's not like Intel would open up for them. Leaving them little choice

EA hacked, source code stolen. Including Fifa21 and proprietary frostbite engine code.
