This week we have a selection of hardware, game development, science, music and movies, all handpicked by Janos Szabo.

AMD/Intel Marketshare 2020

Ever since Ryzen was released, Intel’s market superiority – at least on the ‘do-it-yourself’ desktop market –  is disappearing. The average selling price (ASP) is higher for AMD, which means that people are willing to pay more for an AMD CPU. On the other hand, sales have even gone up so AMD got a bigger share of the market.

Depths of Field Effect

A very interesting video about tinkering with depth of field in Unity. It makes it easy to understand how DoF works in games. Personally the subject is one of my favourite when it comes to game development.

The Earth Has Been Spinning Faster Lately

I’m still unsure if that will affect our lives in any way or not. Surely, 1.5 seconds isn’t a lot…unless you need to dodge a bullet for example. The Earth was slowing down until last year then it sped up actually. Is that because of global warming or something else?

Blob Opera

The only purpose of this – I guess – is to turn off for a few minutes. Super Funny. Blob Opera is a machine learning experiment from Google and David Li. You can play four opera voices in real-time and record it.

This is a post in the Last Week in 5 Links series. We share a lot of interesting videos, articles and other types of content in our internal chat. We thought some of the info we come across could come in handy for others too. So each week we post five of the links we shared between ourselves in the previously selected by one of our team.

If you have any comments, ideas or personal experiences, feel free to share with us. We are curious to hear new ideas, solutions, and perspectives regarding the above. Don’t forget to follow us on our social media!
