Cybathlon pits technically assisted pilots against each other

cybathlon.jpg

The Cybathlon is a multi-sport international competition in which people with physical disabilities compete against each other to complete everyday tasks using state-of-the-art technical assistance. It’s basically an excuse to create enhancements in assistive technology and a nice showcase for the current state of the industry. Also, cyborgs competing against cyborgs. Plus the competitions are quite riveting and there’s nothing quite like hearing an announcer get super stoked about somebody stacking cups or putting on a jacket.

Keep going from some videos from the 2020 event, including an event called the Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) Race where pilots with quadriplegia steer a car in a computer game using nothing but brain signals.

AMD confirms that Windows 11 may cause performance degradation of Ryzen CPUs by up to 15% thumbnail

AMD confirms that Windows 11 may cause performance degradation of Ryzen CPUs by up to 15%

媒体这几天连续报道了用户安装微软最新的Windows 11操作系统后出现的一些已知问题,无论是Oracle VirtualBox软件还是浏览器兼容性问题,以及英特尔通信方案的网络联通问题。今天,AMD确认了之前用户的报告说,他们部分位于Windows 11兼容列表里的处理器产品在安装新操作系统后运行某些应用程序时出现了性能问题。 问题要点:Reddit用户axaro1发布了一张截图,显示了AMD和微软修复前的性能差异。AMD建议其用户暂时坚持使用Windows 10,暂不升级以作为变通办法,操作系统热修复即将到来。已知的性能变化影响的领域,如L3缓存延迟可能会增加2~3倍。UEFI CPPC2("首选核心")可能不会优先在处理器的最快核心上安排线程,这是导致性能下降的主因。AMD表示,L3缓存延迟增加,所带来的直接影响是对内存子系统访问时间敏感的应用程序可能会有潜在的影响,以及"预计在受影响的应用程序中的性能影响为3-5%,在常用于电子竞技的游戏中可能有10-15%的异常值"。随着对首选核心性能的影响,在AMD处理器最有效的核心上无法以正确的效力调度线程,某些"对一个或几个CPU线程性能敏感的应用可能会表现出性能下降",以及"性能影响在65W TDP以上的>8核处理器中可能更容易被发现"。为了解决这些问题,AMD和微软已经开始合作准备Windows 11的更新,以及AMD的单独软件更新,这些更新将在本月内推出。微软和AMD计划用文章来更新他们各自的知识库,一旦有了版本号和其他信息,就会提供给用户。AMD表示,在这些问题发生时,建议继续使用当前支持的Windows 10版本,而不是继续使用Windows 11,直到这些问题得到积极解决。要查看Windows 11目前遇到的问题,请参考我们之前的文章,以及微软持续更新的知识库和AMD的支持页面,以了解任何新的解决方法或软件/驱动程序更新。其他公司可能会遇到类似的问题,但在新操作系统推出仅几天后,用户和公司仍在不断发现问题,对于一个新版本的操作系统而言这是非常正常的。
