Nice report you got there, who paid for it?
In all the past years VR has not been the huge success everybody hoped. And now, magically, within four years, the shipments of kit will almost quadruple? Do they know of the killer-app that a) nobody can live without and b) will pay an arm and a leg for to become part of?
An H100 card does (TDP) 350..700W, depending type and whatnot. So, 1000 of them do 350...700kW. Assuming they are 100% loaded at 24h/365d, would mean 3...6 GWh per year. At a bulk-price of $0.05 per kWh that gives 153...306 k$ per year. This is, of course, not accounting for the servers, network, building and cooling. You might need to triple my estimate to get near energy consumption reality. Now, how expensive was that clinician?
Not to defend the system, not at all. I think it is offensive and obscene to use this amount of energy that is (in total) somewhere in the vicinity of one, two or three million home's energy use, maybe more. Especially problematic seen in the light of our impact and actually should be reducing our earthly footprint...
We don't really need AI/ML to tell us about our collective stupidity. Just take a look on the internet and it should be obvious.
But fear not, we can reassure readers that the content here at The Register is written by sentient beings.
Being "sentient" is in no way a prerequisite for being a natural biological person with any intellect whatsoever.
Therefore, I submit that there is 1) a real chance that El Reg is a blob of binary computers blabbering bullshit beyond believe, 2) a real chance that El Reg is a gathering of a babbling bumbling band of baboons and only magic keeps it together, 3) a real chance that reality is unreal and 4) a real chance El Reg hacks are sentient but do not get the hang of Thursdays.
Let's say, the jury is still out on this one. In the meantime, have a proper Monday beer to pretend it is Friday already.
Ah well, the remaining folks at Twitter probably really are too busy to open up that an email inbox.
They are trying to get rid of their Xcreetions on the toilet. However, the mass has hardened to the maX such that no shit happens. An insider quipped: "We're waiting for an eXplosion. Please don't be near us when it happens.". I fear that no severance will survive the eXcrements.
This is the best and certain Get Rich Quick method to date!

So don't worry: if a stray black hole was ejected in our direction we'd probably already be dead!
Don't worry? The gravity of the situation demands that we panic right away and find a way to move a black hole out of our way, pronto! Hell will be on top of us before you know it and we all die in the process. We need a solution before we all die a horribly stretched and spaghettificated death. The Asylum has created many good inspirational moving pictures to show the way. Time to make it real and do something about that invisible Black Threat we can't see, hear or smell.
I hope they win and Google must pay restitution to any and all EU citizen they hold data about without voluntary and explicit consent where the burden of consent proof will be reversed such that Google is held to having data illegally collected from each EU citizen, unless Google can prove they got voluntary and explicit consent for any and all purposes that Google uses data for.
One is allowed to dream nice dreams, not?
Getting Musk pissed off is a too easy achievement. There are no points to gain from getting Musk being pissed off. You Xcreete, Musk is pissed off. You sneeze, Musk is pissed of. You keep to yourself, Musk is pissed off. You allow yourself to be known, Musk is pissed off.
Just give it up already. And Musk will be pissed off at that too and Xcreete his inner feelings to show how pissed off he is, again.

I wonder how we even managed to live...
We ignorants do not know what we are missing out on until it is told to us ignorants that we are missing out which makes us inevitably feel at a loss of what we do not have and become more ignorant to cope with the situation until we cannot ignore it any longer after which we embark on a shopping spree to cope with our new found ignorance.
Never underestimate the anticipatory magic of Google's algorithms to know where you were/are/will be months from now before you even imagined your whereabouts in your wildest dreams(*).

Using credit card --> anonymity fail. (usually-) Not the credit card company fails, but the company you buy from. Your every behaviour is recorded and analysed for a "virtual you". Stop being naive.
If you want instant gratification by buying stuff, then you must go to a physical shop, pay cash, not have it correlated with withdrawals and prevent from being recorded in and out of the shop.
(online) Retailers do not care about your interpretation of "relation". You are a target to extract money from. If that means using strong X-rays to get to the last nickel,... well, they'll use gamma rays just to be sure to get the last bit of information too.
