Linux kernel code already knows about AMD 96-core processors

Published

on

The latest Linux kernel patch has received the first confirmation of the existence of AMD processors with 96 cores.

More precisely, it talks about the new AMD Family 19h 10h-1Fh and A0h-AFh CPUs, which can contain up to 12 chiplets. Recall that each chiplet currently contains eight cores.

The code does not indicate which processors this information applies to, but, of course, we are not talking about consumer Ryzen. In this case, we are dealing with either server-side Epyc or Threadripper. And with regard to the former, everything agrees with the data of AMD itself.

Recall that the company recently talked about the Epyc Genoa processors on the Zen 4 architecture, which will just have up to 96 cores. As a result, we now know that the new Epyc chiplets will still contain eight cores, but the number of chiplets will increase. And in Bergamo processors, their number should reach 16 at all, if AMD does not change the chiplets for these CPUs.

Skoda Luniaq lunar rover presented with transparent aluminum windows and six wheels

Published

During the Czech Space Week, Xtend Design unveiled the Luniaq lunar rover, inspired by the Skoda Enyaq.

This electric rover will be able to carry up to four astronauts. Luniaq will be built on the NASA MMSEV (Multi-Mission Space Exploration Vehicle) platform, which has already been used to build other lunar rovers.

The Luniaq will receive large windows that allow it to assess the situation with a 180-degree viewing angle. Moreover, the windows are made not of glass, but of transparent aluminum, which is also more resistant to micrometeorites than glass. Layers of polyethylene add extra protection against radiation, and a lower front window allows drivers to view the moon’s surface directly in front of the vehicle.

The Luniaq will be equipped with stereoscopic cameras to scan the area and acquire 3D images, allowing for remote control of the vehicle. Michelin Tweel technology will be used to make large soft wheels.

Sustainable development can enable us to keep moving forward and expand the biosphere to other places in space. We would like to inspire people on how we could continue to progressively develop our technologies and one day live and travel in places other than Earth. Humanity is technically advanced enough that it becomes just a matter of our motivation and funding. A new era of electric mobility could continue throughout the solar system and beyond.
