A galaxy has been discovered whose core emits plasma jets 50 times larger than the galaxy itself

Large elliptical galaxy NGC 2663 lies 93 million light-years from Earth. Astronomers from the University of Western Sydney have recorded that its core releases relativistic jets (plasma jets) characteristic of the vicinity of supermassive black holes.

A galaxy has been discovered whose core emits plasma jets 50 times larger than the galaxy itself

As scientists note, these jets (they are also called jets) turned out to be 50 times larger than the galaxy itself. The team studied NGC 2663 using the ASKAP interferometer, which consists of 36 radio telescopes.

The work showed that jets of astonishing length – more than a million light years – emanate from the center of the galaxy. Such relativistic jets are produced by interactions of extreme magnetic fields with the matter of an accretion disk surrounding a black hole or a neutron star.

They look like a pair of narrow streams of plasma flying out of the object’s poles at speeds comparable to the speed of light. Astronomers have concluded that the galaxy NGC 2663 is surrounded by accumulations of invisible gas, which are condensed and heated by powerful jets.

According to scientists, intergalactic matter enters the galaxy, feeding a supermassive black hole at its center. The more mass and rotation a black hole gains, the more powerful the jets it creates become.

Intel unintentionally showed 34 core processors where all the cores are

Intel introduced the Raptor Lake processors, where the flagship is the Core i9-13900K with 8 large and 16 small cores, that is, it has a total of 24 cores. But perhaps Intel has something even more impressive?

At the Intel Innovation 2022 event, the company demonstrated a wafer with Raptor Lake crystals. Not only are the crystals themselves clearly not the same as those of the new Core desktop products, the label also directly indicates that these are 34-core processors.

The study of the crystals showed that probably all 34 nuclei are large. Interestingly, the Intel booth staff had no idea what kind of CPU it was.

Presumably, these may be processors of the Sapphire Rapids family, which are expected next year. They should come out both in the server segment and in the segment of solutions for workstations. Perhaps the latter will be promoted as part of the Raptor Lake line, although the labeling may simply be a mistake.

The monstrous Core i9 13900KS lit up on the Web and

That same mysterious Intel processor with a frequency of 6 GHz out of the box has already lit up on the Web. And it’s actually called the Core i9-13900KS, as we expected.

Moreover, it immediately lit up in the CPU-Z benchmark, scoring 982 and 18,453 points there in single-threaded and multi-threaded modes, respectively.

In comparison, the Core i9-13900K scores 810 and 14,900 points out of the box, and 945 and 16,880 points when the power limit is removed, according to the results available on the Web. True, you need to understand that in all these cases the results were obtained on the CPU before they were released to the market, so they may be slightly different for serial samples. As for the Core i9-12900K, its upscale score is 825 and 11,320, while the latest Ryzen 9 7950X scores 787 and 15,660.

Under what conditions the Core i9-13900KS was tested is unknown. He, too, could pass the benchmark without power restrictions.

Recall, Intel said that such a processor will be released next year in a limited edition.

Is the cheapest video card of the current generation now

Intel is indeed gearing up to launch the ultra-affordable Arc A310 graphics card. Yesterday the company introduced the flagship Arc A770 and new processors, but the A310 quietly registered on the company’s website.

It has only 6 Xe cores, that is, 768 FP32 blocks. The GPU runs at 2100 MHz, and there is also 4 GB of GDDR6 memory at 15.5 GHz and a 64-bit bus.

The card does not have a price, but with such parameters it cannot be large. In addition, the same Arc A380 is priced at only $140, while the A310 should be cheaper. This will mean that it is the Arc A310 that will become the cheapest current generation video card on the market, since the Radeon RX 6400 and GeForce GTX 1630 (if it can be attributed to the current generation at all) are simply more expensive.
