The first chips featuring AMD’s new 3D V-Cache technology have arrived… for servers. AMD says its new EPYC 7003 Milan-X chips have up to three times as much L3 cache as previous-gen processors. And the same technology is coming soon to desktop processors, starting with the Ryzen 7 5800X3D processor which should arrive in about a month.

In other recent tech news from around the web, Imagination Technologies has released an early version of an open source graphics driver for some of its PowerVR GPUs, there’s a new project to create a mobile operating system powered by web technologies that picks up where Mozilla’s Firefox OS left off (it even uses Mozilla’s Boot2Gecko software as a starting point), and nearly eight years after Apple stopped selling iPods, hardware hackers are keeping the portable music players alive… and teaching them new tricks.

Here’s a roundup of recent tech news from around the web.

  1. Half your fucking page is covered by popup modal ads on mobile. You’re also violating the terms of service from your ad provider. They’ve been notified. Have fun with them not paying you this month and banning you if you do it again.

  2. I looked everywhere for a Firefox phone. They were always ‘for developers only’. Sort of like the Ubuntu Touch, or rather “Don’t Touch” phone. I finally found an Orange ZTE Open Firefox phone on Ebay for $30 after it was discontinued. It worked great as a ‘phone’, even internationally. I liked the OS. It ran very well on such low spec hardware. But sadly one day, the app store was discontinued and updates were on longer available. I had to reluctantly toss it after my carrier discontinued it’s frequency bands, saying goodbye to an old friend.
