The large Range Rover 2022 SUV, the fifth generation of the series, was unveiled this week, with changes to the car but immediately recognizable lines and lines.
According to Range Rover, the idea was to create an SUV that looked like it was crafted from a single piece of dense material. The glazing is flush and the lighting is designed to be hidden until it comes on. It is based on Land Rover’s new flexible modular architecture known as MLA-Flex.
Initially, buyers will have a choice between a V8 gasoline engine and an in-line 6-cylinder engine. The 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 has 523bhp. and develops 749 Nm of torque. He will be able to accelerate the car from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.4 seconds.
Later, the line will be replenished with a mild hybrid. It combines a turbocharged in-line six-cylinder engine with a 136 hp electric motor. with a total output of 395 hp and 550 Nm of torque. Range Rover estimates that it will be able to travel up to 100 km only on electricity from a 38.2 kWh lithium-ion battery. An all-electric Range Rover will arrive in 2024.
Integrated chassis control takes over all-wheel steering and gives the new SUV a turning radius of 11 meters. This is actually less than any other Land Rover model. Added active electronic roll control for stability. There is also a fully independent air suspension, active rear differential with locking and intelligent all-wheel drive. Terrain Response 2 offers six drive modes and a custom mode for unique settings.
The interior has also been improved. Apart from the extra seats in the third row, there are plenty of new materials: for example, if you don’t need leather, there are new premium textiles. Options include 1600W Meridian Signature Sound System with headrest-mounted speakers, Active Noise Cancellation and Adaptive Cruise Control with Power Steering. The Versatile Loadspace Floor option has a movable floor panel, while the Tailgate Event Suite option adds tailored leather cushions, lighting and sound.
The car has a curved infotainment diagonal of 13.1-inch curved touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as integrated Alexa and SiriusXM 360L. There is also an optional 13.7-inch display.
The center touchscreen features haptic feedback for the first time, while the optional rear-seat entertainment system includes two 11.4-inch screens. They have HDMI inputs and can also connect to the SUV’s Wi-Fi hotspot for streaming content.
The new Range Rover 2022 will start at $ 104,000 for the Mild Hybrid SE or $ 11,000 for the long-wheelbase 7-seater version. The most expensive Range Rover First Edition and Range Rover First Edition LWB cost between $ 158,200 and $ 163,500, respectively.
Deliveries are due to begin in the spring of 2022.
Ryzen 5 2400 and GeForce GTX 1060 are required to play the “best game of all time” at Full HD resolution. Requirements for the PC version of God of War published
The developers of God of War, recognized in October this year as the best game of all time, have published the system requirements for the PC version – it will be released on January 14. In general, to play at Full HD resolution and a frame rate of 30 fps, an average PC performance by today’s standards is sufficient: with 8 GB of RAM, a quad-core Core i5-6600K processor and a GeForce GTX 1060 video card. “Is a completely different story.
Ultra is 4K resolution and 60fps frame rate. This requires a processor of at least Intel Core i9-9900K or AMD Ryzen 9 3950X, 16 GB of RAM and a video card of at least GeForce RTX 3080. “Intermediate” quality settings High and Performance require video cards GeForce GTX 1070 and GeForce RTX 2070, respectively. For all quality levels, one thing is invariable – the presence of 64-bit Windows 10 and 70 free gigabytes on the SSD.
AMD credited with ordering 4nm processors from Samsung
Historically, AMD has worked with two semiconductor contract manufacturers: TSMC and GlobalFoundries. According to the latest report from Gokul Hariharan, an analyst at JP Morgan, AMD may soon bring in another manufacturing partner to release the processors. The point is that AMD can start cooperation with the South Korean giant Samsung and use the proprietary 4LPP technical process, which is the second generation of technical processes based on the use of 4 nm standards. It has been selected for AMD APUs for Google Chromebooks – mobile computers that require low power consumption to maximize battery life.
AMD may take this step in late 2022, since Samsung’s 4LPP process technology will be available in mass production by then. This means that the first AMD APUs from Samsung could hit the market in late 2022 or early 2023. Of course, the cooperation between the two companies can be much broader. AMD is allegedly evaluating the possibility of using Samsung’s 3nm manufacturing processes to launch other products from different segments in 2023 or 2024. The parties have not yet entered into appropriate agreements, therefore, the information provided by JP Morgan should be taken with a grain of salt.
Why are Intel Z690 motherboards so expensive? Named a component that has risen in price three times in comparison with Intel Z590
Motherboards for Intel Alder Lake processors based on the Intel Z690 chipset have noticeably increased in price compared to their predecessors: the most affordable models are estimated at about $ 250, and the cost of the top ones reaches 2,000 euros. But if everything is clear with the top-end ones, then with the basic and middle-level models – not very much. Did the revised power subsystem, DDR5 and PCIe 5.0 support lead to this?
Not really. The support for DDR5 and PCIe 5.0 had practically no effect on the price, but the power subsystem really came out more expensive. Intel Z690 uses IMVP 9.1 specifications instead of IMVP8 and uses SPS instead of DrMOS converters. Taken together, all the changes have resulted in each phase of the power supply of the Intel Z690 costing twice as much as in the Intel Z590.
Interestingly, the chipset itself is almost on a par with its predecessor: $ 50 – the price of Intel Z590 and $ 51 – the cost of Intel Z690. But there is one component that has tripled in price! And alas, without this component in any way. It’s about the socket itself. Surprisingly, about half the number of contacts has led to a threefold increase in the cost of the socket. If the processor socket for the LGA115x CPU cost about five dollars, then the LGA1700 cost 10-15 dollars, and this is the wholesale price when ordering a very large batch of chipsets.
