Processors have become too multi-core. Default Linux Arm 64-bit core kernel build can’t handle a pair of 192-core Ampere CPUs

While modern x86-compatible processors, thanks to AMD, have reached the mark of 128 cores per CPU, processors based on the Arm architecture have long since crossed this mark, and this has become a problem. As it turns out, the Linux operating system is not yet ready for this.

The question was raised by Ampere, which released its 192-core CPUs on Arm. The problem is that two such processors in one system means 384 cores, and today the 64-bit main Linux Arm kernel build only supports up to 256 cores. To solve this problem, Ampere itself introduced a patch that proposes to increase the Linux kernel limit to 512 cores using the “CPUMASK_OFFSTACK” method. In fact, support can be increased to 8192 cores at once, but the limit of 512 was chosen for the sake of economy, since support for each CPU core adds about 8 KB to the size of the kernel image.

It is reported that without patches, support for more than 256 kernels in Linux will not appear until next year, when Linux 6.8 is released.

It became known which video card the worlds smallest liquid cooled

Tecno brought to MWC 2024 the Mega Mini Gaming G1 mini-PC, which it called the world’s smallest liquid-cooled gaming PC with a discrete graphics card. The press release did not contain information about the video card, but now there is information.

It turned out that the mini-PC received a GeForce RTX 4060. There is no indication that this is a mobile version, although this cannot be completely ruled out. The Videocardz resource suggests that this is the RTX 4060 Laptop.

But if it’s a desktop adapter, that’s also pretty good considering the dimensions. In addition, the RTX 4060 consumes little power and supports DLSS 3. Mega Mini Gaming G1, let us remind you, has Thunderbolt 4 and Oculink ports, so you can connect an external video card to it without any problems.

MSI introduced the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti Super video cards as part of the Expert and Aero lines.

Both cards are quite unusual. The Expert models are distinguished by the design and construction of the cooler, which is similar to the coolers of the Nvidia Founders Edition reference cards. That is, one fan is located on the front, and the second is on the back.

The Aero model, in turn, is equipped with a “turbine”, that is, a cooler with a centrifugal fan. Let us remember that Nvidia actually prohibits the release of such RTX 4090 models, but the ban does not apply to younger models. However, there are few such adapters on the market, since for the average user, a “turbine” means, first of all, an increased noise level.

These cards are not yet on the MSI website, so it is unknown whether factory overclocking takes place.

The most powerful gaming laptop under 1400 from Xiaomi has

Xiaomi continues to reveal details about the Redmi G Pro 2024 laptop, which the company itself defines as “the most powerful gaming laptop under $1,400.”

This time the company announced that this model has four expansion slots: two SO-DIMM and two M.2. Support for 48 GB memory modules gives a maximum RAM capacity of 96 GB, and a maximum SSD capacity of up to 8 TB! Many gaming laptops from famous world brands have much more modest expansion options (or none at all, if we talk only about RAM).

Xiaomi has announced that the Redmi G Pro 2024 is the company’s first laptop with an Ice Cooling system that can handle 210W. This should be enough to cool the Intel i9-14900HX (up to 55 W) and GeForce RTX 4060 Laptop (up to 140 W).

The laptop received a screen with a resolution of 2.5K, a frame rate of 240 Hz, and a maximum brightness of 500 cd/sq.m. and coverage of 100% sRGB color space. Like many gaming laptops, there is built-in RGB lighting.

The official premiere of Redmi G Pro 2024 will take place on March 4 in China, and the price will be announced at the same time.
