AMD has announced a pure GPU part of their AMD Instinct MI300, the MI300X, which uses CDNA 3 GPU tiles and is aimed at the LLMs market. It is set to be a powerhouse for processing the largest and most complex of LLMs, with a massive 192GB of memory capacity.
💻 The AMD Instinct MI300X is a pure, high-performance GPU that uses CDNA 3 GPU tiles and is designed for the largest of models.
🤝 AMD’s MI300 series gives them an advantage with a united memory architecture and plenty of bandwidth between the CPU and GPU tiles.
📈 The MI300 family is set to ship later this year, with the 128GB MI300A APU already sampling to customers, and the 192GB MI300X GPU set to sample in Q3 of this year.

Everything is working properly, despite possible concerns.
too many options can lead to decision fatigue, but offering a few specific options actually increases the chances of booking a meeting. The data showed that offering three time slots instead of ten increased the booking rate by 25%. It seems that too many options can be overwhelming and lead to indecision, but offering a just a few specific options allows for easy decision-making. Summary
The best time to schedule meetings is on Monday at 11am, with the five highest booking rates for meetings being on Mondays or Tuesdays in the first half of the day. Offering three specific time slots for a meeting instead of ten increases the booking rate by 25%.
When building or rebuilding packages for your Linux distribution, you need two sorts of isolation (binary build area vs package source area and entire build process vs regular user environment). These isolations ensure consistency and ease rebuilding or reproducing builds. RPM does not provide hermetic builds but sbuild is a collection of tools in Debian that facilitates it.
💾 Binary build area isolation ensures the package source area is separate and can save from potential problems that may arise without it.
🔬 A hermetic build environment with the entire build process isolated from the user’s environment variables, state, and peculiarities of installed packages, provides consistency and accuracy to the build processes.
👥 RPM and Debian packages do not provide hermetic builds out of the box; mock for RPMs and sbuild collection of tools for Debian can facilitate it.

have been deprecated or removed in JupyterLab 4.0, including compatibility with some older extensions and the ability to connect to remote kernels using SSH tunnels.Summary
JupyterLab 4.0 is now available and offers faster rendering of large notebooks, an upgraded text editor, new features for document search, a new extension manager, accessibility improvements, and updates to development tools. Some features have been deprecated or removed.
💻 JupyterLab 4.0 is much more efficient than JupyterLab 3 when working with large notebooks, rendering only the parts that fit in the browser viewport for faster performance.
