- I have systematically examined today's tech news
and according to my calculations it is indeed hype.
- [Man] Yay.
We've already been talking a lot about
processor releases this year
but we might actually be getting
yet another one as rumors indicate
that a refreshed Ryzen 3000 lineup will launch
before the upcoming 4000 series.
A possible report from the chip help forums indicates that
AMD might be rolling out three chips
with boosted clock speeds,
a Ryzen 9 3900 XT, Ryzen 7 3800 XT and a Ryzen 5 3600 XT.
The timing of this release does raise some questions.
It's unclear whether AMD is just trying to give Intel
a little bit more competition against the 7th gen chips
or if there might be a slight delay with Zen 3.
Either way you might wanna wait a little bit
before buying Ryzen unless you just really crave that
new CPU smell
'cause I can tell you it smells good.
And there's now a possible release date
for the new graphics cards
coming from team green and team read.
A report from Digi time
suggests that both NVIDIA's and peer consumer GPU
and AMD's big Navy lineup should be out in September
just in time for you to be forced to ignore them
because you have to do homework.
- [Man] I hated doing homework.
- I just didn't do it.
- [Man] He's losing it.
- Although this report is unconfirmed,
it does match up with the other rumors we've heard
especially as September marks
the end of the year's third quarter,
which has previously been given
as a possible release window.
So it might turn out that our fears of big tech releases
being delayed due to the pandemic were unfounded
but you can't blame us for being scared.
I mean, I didn't really think leather jacket man's
whole bit about cooking up
the world's biggest graphics card.
Was that funny?
Is this is a joke to you Jensen?
This is our kitchen set.
You get out.
- [Man] He copied us.
- How dare he.
You know how iOS solid has historically been
pretty tough operating system to jailbreak.
I mean especially in comparison to Android.
Well, one clever group of hackers has just bucked that trend
as the uncover group has jail broken
all phones that use iOS 11 and later and yes,
that includes iOS 13.5
which was just released a few days ago.
How could you jail break a baby?
You disgust me.
Apparently uncover found a zero day bug
that was able to bill a jail break around
and the good news is that if you're an iPhone enthusiasts
that wants to open up the operating system
while still keeping security features
for apps you find useful like Apple pay,
the jail break actually does leave those alone.
It's pretty cool news,
but it also makes me wonder
if Apple's security standards are slipping a little bit.
I wonder if someone on their security team
is going to be put through the juicer.
- [Man] I don't wanna see that.
- I think you do.

Yeah, I need bits.
Quick, quick bits in here.
Get here stop.
- [Man] Okay.
- I don't know what you're laughing about,
it's an important thing that we need to.
- [Man] All right I'll get him.
Oh jeez he's angry.
- Hello Gordon.
Graphing calculators are about to get less fun
as if that could happen right?
- [Man] That's impossible.
- Texas instruments is no longer supporting
some popular apps based on either C or assembly code.
It's apparently to prevent cheating,
but the change means that many math programs
and games like Doom will no longer work.
If you use a program that you think might be effected
your only recourse for now is to not update the firmware.
But if you're really bored,
think writing a naughty word upside down
with numbers should still work.
- [Man] I checked, still good.
- Still good.
Speaking of good, Linus Torvalds
announced a new version of the Linux kernel this weekend,
but he also made a big announcement
of a more personal nature.
As he switched to an Threadripper 3970X
for his desktop computer.
What did you think it was?
This means it's the first time in around 15 years
he's used AMD as his daily driver rather than Intel.
It also means I owe some people
a lot more money due to some bad bets.
Halo 3 will be coming to PC early next month

It's great news for PCMR members
who have a physical reaction
to the thought of touching an Xbox.
- [Man] Nasty.
- Nope, you don't have lots of titles in the Sonic series
have been subpar to say the least after the blue hedgehog
16 big glory days.
Sega has announced that future installments
won't come out as quickly so development team
can take a little bit more time to relax
and make sure the games are actually good.
Sometimes gotta go fast, isn't really the correct approach,
especially when it comes to Sonic '06.
Fun facts, they went fast and they split the team in two
- [Man] And it didn't work.
- Oh no.
- [Man] I have never played a single side.
Not a single one?
- [Man] Nope. - Never.
And as for our American viewers.
