LAKE CHARLES — Standing near the empty lot where his house once stood, Ron Thomas said his message for President Joe Biden when he arrives for a visit on Thursday is a simple one: Send help. “Why is Calcasieu Parish not receiving the assistance they’re supposed to receive — the assistance they’re supposed to receive after a storm?” the 50-year-old said, casting a gaze over his former neighborhood in northern Lake Charles, where modest homes of brick and wooden siding in the shadow of Interstate 10 took a beating in the two hurricanes that ripped through southwestern Louisiana last year. It’s a message being echoed throughout the area, from the region’s top officials to the streets of Lake Charles, Louisiana’s sixth-largest city. The region has made much progress in coming back from Hurricane Laura, one of the most powerful storms to ever make landfall in the U.S., and Category 2 Hurricane Delta just six weeks later. But daunting needs remain, and rebuilding in the COVID era … [Read more...] about Storm-weary Lake Charles residents eager to show President Joe Biden that challenges remain

It's no surprise that Intel is working on a new big.LITTLE design for its upcoming Alder Lake processors, due later this year. After its breakup with Apple following the introduction of the Apple M1 chip and the announcement of Nvidia Grace last month, Intel is facing increasing competition in market segments where it had long held a dominant position. This is especially true with one of the largest growing parts of the computer market: laptops. Here, at least according to PassMark Software's CPU benchmark analysis, Intel enjoys nearly 80% of the non-Apple mobile computing market to itself, with AMD struggling to make the kinds of inroads here that it has with desktop CPU market share .

What would be a major threat to Intel's bottom line is losing a sizeable … [Read more...] about Is AMD Zen 5 coming to bury Intel’s Alder Lake?
