Isaac Bonga enjoys the call-up, but is growing through the G League grind

first_img Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs SAN ANTONIO — He was supposed to be an “insurance policy.” But as things turned out, Isaac Bonga did get a chance at his first NBA minutes on Friday night.They came in garbage time, as they often do for rookies. But it’s all gravy for Bonga, who at 19 years old is the youngest Laker and has spent most of his time down in the G League so far.He liked the charter flight and the hotel in San Antonio, he admitted. But his tenure with the South Bay Lakers has gone well, too.“I feel G League experience right now is actually doing pretty good,” he said. “The first couple games maybe kinda get used to everything: speed, people over there. But since I’m getting used to it, I’m actually going well so far.” Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersBonga is averaging 14 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.2 steals while shooting 44.4 percent from 3-point range in the G League, where he’s started all 12 of his games. A 6-foot-8 wing, the Lakers hope Bonga can develop into a helpful addition to the backcourt in the future.He got the call-up Thursday as the team was reeling from the loss of Brandon Ingram to an ankle sprain. Lakers coach Luke Walton said he’s monitored Bonga closely in the G League through South Bay coach Coby Karl.“We are confident that if we need him,” Walton said, “he can get out there and help us play some defense and handle the ball a little bit for us.”Bonga said he’s still adjusting to the speed of the American game after playing pro in Germany for the last few years. But fellow countryman Moe Wagner said he’s seen Bonga improve by leaps and bounds since the preseason, when he lacked confidence.When they’re in the same locker room, the two can be seen conversing in German. Bonga said it’s been helpful having Wagner around.

While Hart missed all five of his 3-point attempts, Walton still felt that Hart kept pace with the starting group, for the most part.“His biggest challenge tonight was defensively,” Walton said. “We had him on DeRozan and Rudy, so I thought a lot of his efforts were going there. We can do a better job of getting him more looks, but I thought he looked pretty good with that group.”Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Et tu AMD No Ryzen drivers for Windows 7

first_imgEt tu, AMD? No Ryzen drivers for Windows 7 by Martin Brinkmann on February 09, 2017 in Windows – 33 commentsMicrosoft announced back in January of 2016 that the upcoming chip generations of Intel and AMD would only support Windows 10, and not the more widely used Windows 7, or Windows 10’s predecessor Windows 8.x.It was not really clear what Microsoft meant by that at the time, but we figured it out some time later.  Basically, what it means is that Microsoft does not support these processors on older versions of Windows, and that both Intel and AMD won’t support them officially either.So, no official drivers, and no support for new features that these processors may ship with on older versions of Windows.Some or even all of these processors may work however; a YouTube video was published that demonstrated that Windows 8.x could be installed on a PC equipped with Intel’s Kaby Lake processor (check the link above for the video).Unsupported means that some new features may not work as intended, and that Microsoft, Intel and AMD won’t provide support on devices equipped with these processors if they run Windows 8.x or Windows 7.It was not really clear what AMD’s intentions where with the company’s Ryzen processors. Microsoft did mention back in 2016 that upcoming Intel and AMD chips would not run on older versions of Windows.Information on AMD stances has come to light recently. While AMD appears to have validated Ryzen processors on machines running Windows 7 and Windows 10, the company stated that it would only offer support and drivers for Windows 10 (via Infoworld).PC users who upgrade hardware components on their PCs, and those who want to stay on Windows 8.x or 7, face a difficult decision now.While they may be able to install a Ryzen or Kaby Lake processor on the machine, and run Windows 7 or 8.1 on it, they’d be left alone if they require support. Neither Microsoft, nor Intel or AMD will provide support on unsupported operating system version.So, if you want to run the latest Intel or AMD processors, you need to get your hands on Windows 10 if you want them to be supported officially by those companies.It is unclear if Ryzen processors will perform the same on Windows 7 or Windows 10, or if driver support and better operating system support make Windows 10 beat earlier versions of Windows performance and stability wise.This is something that has to be tested extensively, but it seems likely that without proper drivers and operating system support, performance and stability are probably going to be worse on older versions of Windows.Closing WordsThe decision to limit support for next generation silicon to Windows 10 seems anti-consumer to me. Windows 7 is still the operating system that is most widely used, and that is not going to change in the next couple of years.Did Microsoft convince AMD and Intel to drop support for older versions of Windows? I cannot see any of the two companies drop support for the Windows version with the largest user base. We will probably never know for sure.Now You: What is your take? Why are AMD and Intel supporting only Windows 10 for their next gen chipsets?SummaryArticle NameEt tu, AMD? No Ryzen drivers for Windows 7DescriptionAMD will only support Windows 10 with drivers and support for its upcoming next generation Ryzen processors.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more
