Sage Landing at Buderim on the Sunshine Coast“As long-term Sunshine Coast locals and Buderim residents ourselves, we’ve made a conscious effort to design a development that incorporates the best of Buderim living, capitalising on the village lifestyle and the leafy surrounds,” Mr Reed said.“We had long been looking for a site to build a limited number of quality homes within easy walking distance of the village and it’s great to see the sod turned and civil works commencing as Sage Landing comes to fruition.” More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home1 hour agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor1 hour agoSage Landing at Buderim on the Sunshine CoastRay White Buderim real estate agent Lew Pottinger said the commencement of construction marked a significant milestone for both the development and the Buderim housing market as a whole.“Over the past few decades there has been a limited number of subdivisions on top of Buderim, and of these, the majority have centred on expansive homes that require a lot of upkeep in terms of lawns and other maintenance,” Mr Pottinger said.“While Sage Landing’s high-end homes are still spacious enough to accommodate families or couples, the development has been specifically designed to be low maintenance, making it more manageable for occupants.“This isn’t an offering we see every day in Buderim and there really is no comparative product on the market at present.” Sage Landing at Buderim on the Sunshine CoastMr Pottinger said just eight home and land offerings currently remained at Sage Landing.“In addition to the low maintenance properties, one of the biggest attractions for buyers so far has proved to be the privacy the development affords,” Mr Pottinger said.“Sage Landing is very much its own private enclave; however, there are no body corporate costs and the development is still within easy walking distance of Buderim’s cafes, boutique retail outlets and the beautiful Buderim to Palmwoods tramway walking trail, thus combining the best of both worlds.” last_img read more

Blues have the edge

Posted On Sep 20 2020 by

first_img Captain Andy Waterworth put last season’s Danske Bank Premiership runners-up ahead in the 57th minute and Guy Bates added a second in the 73rd minute to leave Linfield in a healthy position heading to the Faroe Islands. It is not looking so good for two of Northern Ireland’s other representatives though, with Glentoran and Glenavon both suffering home defeats. Cup-winners Glentoran were beaten 4-1 by MSK Zilina of Slovakia, for whom Matej Jelic (13), Jakub Paur (20), Lukas Cmelik (59) and Ernest Mabouka (81) struck the goals. Conor McMenamin got Glentoran on the scoresheet, but they face a huge task to get through. Glenavon also have work to do, but not as much as Glentoran, as they were beaten 2-1 by Belarus side Shakhtyor Soligorsk. It looked set to be a bad night for the hosts at Mourneview Park when Mikhail Afanasiev and Dmitri Komarovski put the visitors 2-0 up inside 30 minutes, but Mark Patton’s 86th-minute strike has given Glenavon a lifeline. In-form SSE Airtricity League Premier Division side St Patrick’s were unable to extend their five-match domestic winning streak as they lost 2-1 at Skonto Riga. Saints took a 21st-minute lead through Aaron Greene’s fine volley but the visitors failed to make the most of their chances and ended up paying the price as Skonto snatched victory with goals from Arturs Karasausks (38) and Vladislavs Gutkovskis (65). Cork City were held 1-1 at home by Icelandic side KR Reykjavik, captain Alan Bennett’s 19th-minute strike being cancelled out by Oskar Orn Hauksson nine minutes later, but University College Dublin did manage to claim a victory. UCD, who play in the Airtricity League first division after being relegated from the Premier Division at the end of the 2014 season, were handed a place in the competition when the Republic of Ireland was granted an extra berth for its third place in UEFA’s Fair Play League. And they got off to a winning start as Ryan Swan’s goal on the stroke of half-time earned them a 1-0 home triumph over Luxembourg club Dudelange. There were mixed results for the three Welsh clubs in action, with Newtown picking up a win but Airbus UK and Bala both losing. Bala were beaten 3-1 away by Differdange, although it could have been even worse for the Welsh Premier runners-up as they found themselves trailing 3-0 inside 26 minutes through goals from Omar Er Rafik, Gauthier Caron and Dejvid Sinani before Ian Sheridan pulled a goal back before the break . Broughton also suffered a 3-1 loss. They took a 28th-minute lead at home to Lokomotiva Zagreb through Wayne Riley but then conceded goals to Damir Sovsic (48), Mirko Maric (61) and substitute Marko Kolar (68) and only prevented a fourth thanks to goalkeeper James Coates, who saved a late penalty from Sovsic. It was a better night for Newtown, for whom Jason Oswell scored a stoppage-time winner to give them a 2-1 lead to take to Maltese side Valletta. Luke Boundford’s 40th-minute opener was cancelled out by Jhonnattann midway through the second half but Valletta lost captain Ian Azzopardi to a red card with five minutes to go, and Newtown capitalised through Oswell. Linfield struck twice in the second half to earn a 2-0 win over NSI Runavik in the first leg of their Europa League first qualifying round tie. Press Associationlast_img read more


AMD powers worlds largest most expensive supercomputer

Posted On Jul 27 2019 by

first_imgUS$254.99 TodayYesterday7 days ago30 days ago AMD Ryzen 7 2700X Processor with Wraith Prism LED Cooler AMD has just scored a gigantic deal in that the company will power the next-gen fastest and most expensive supercomputer in the world, with the US Department of Energy buying a new AMD-powered custom supercomputer built by Cray called Frontier.   Frontier will come online in 2021 and is powered with super-fast EPYC processors and Radeon Instinct accelerators that will pump out an astonishing and record-breaking 1.5 exaflops of processing power. The system will be used for various tasks which will include performing advanced calculations in nuclear and climate research, simulating quantum computers, nuclear reactors, and more. The new system will be delivered in late 2021 and turned on and cranking along in 2022 for the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee. AMD has some huge bragging rights here as Frontier has as much processing power as the 160 fastest supercomputers combined — yeah, combined. The Department of Energy has allowed 30 megawatts of power, with Frontier to use pretty much all of it. Inside, we’ll see an abundance of EPYC processors with 4 x Radeon Instinct GPUs each. All of it is connected through AMD’s own Infinity Fabric inside of Cray-made Shasta cabinets with 100 of them installed and each using 300kW of power, combined using 30MW of power. The EPYC processors in question are not the current first- or even upcoming second-gen ‘Rome’ CPUs, but rather next-gen Zen cores. We are probably looking at Zen 3 or Zen 4, where we could see the world of 128C/256T if things got crazy enough on 5nm or 6nm. The GPU in question is the same, as it’ll be a post-GCN GPU that will be coming next year, so expect something very new in both the CPU and GPU inside of Frontier from AMD. Patrick Moorhead, Founder, President and Principal Analyst of Moors Insights & Strategy reached out to me about the new Frontier supercomputer, where he said: “The Frontier supercomputer win is a big deal for AMD for many reasons. It has been years since AMD was inside the #1 supercomputer, all the back to the Opteron days. With Frontier, not only are EPYC CPUs involved, but Radeon Instinct GPUs, too. I believe the DOE chose AMD for three reasons:   Performance of the CPU and GPU piece-parts The combined platform performance of CPU plus GPU enabled via Infinity Fabric Semi-custom silicon capabilities evident with Microsoft and Sony engagements”. $254.99 center_img $273.50 $248.29 Buylast_img read more
