Advertising platform LoopMe and analyst firm IDC have released the results of a global consumer survey conducted to assess how mobile gaming activity will change after the end of the COVID-19 pandemic. The survey has shown a sharp increase in interest in mobile gaming since the start of the pandemic – 63% of respondents reported increased game time, especially in countries hit hard by COVID-19.

The survey covered 3,850 participants in the US, UK, Japan, Germany, Brazil and Singapore. These countries were selected in such a way as to obtain a mix of countries with high rates of COVID-19 infection and countries with low rates of COVID-19 infection. Data have been normalized to reflect the distribution of the population by country. Respondents were asked about their current gaming activity, as well as their intentions to spend time playing after the pandemic has largely subsided.

More than two-thirds of respondents reported playing mobile games in recent months. A correlation was found between the increase in time spent on gameplay and local pandemic effects (in particular, the death rate from COVID-19 per capita). Three out of four people surveyed said they played for fun or just to pass the time, and 4% said they played to engage in “safe” virtual social interaction. Only 6% did not play before the pandemic. This appears to be related to the age of the “recruits” prior to the start of the pandemic.

According to the survey, it is expected that after the pandemic is largely over (presumably in most countries this will happen at the end of 2022), 75% of the increase in activity in mobile games caused by the pandemic will continue indefinitely.

Largely due to the effects of the pandemic, the global player base of players playing on smartphones or tablets grew by 12% every month in 2020 compared to 2019. As a result, as of the end of last year, the number of mobile gamers in the world reached 2.25 billion people.

Thermaltake has unveiled two new Divider series computer cases. The common feature is reflected in the name – the devices are equipped with fans with customizable lighting. Moreover, you can switch the glow modes (there are 27 of them in total) with a button on the top panel of the case – very convenient. Moreover, proprietary backlight control systems via the motherboard are supported – ASUS Aura Sync, GIGABYTE RGB Fusion, MSI Mystic Light Sync and ASRock Polychrome. And the side panels of both the older model and the younger one are framed with tempered glass 3 mm thick – for the convenience of observing lighting effects.

The Thermaltake Divider 370 TG ARGB is a mid-tower case, and it has excellent compatibility with PC components: you can install a CPU cooler up to 170 mm high, two 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch drives, a power supply up to 230 mm long and video card up to 40 cm long (this is without a radiator installed in front, and if with it, the length of the 3D card is limited to 340 mm). A GeForce RTX 4090 Ti will easily fit into such a case, and there will still be a couple of free slots. By the way, Divider 370 TG ARGB allows you to install the video card vertically – this significantly reduces the load both from the PCIe x16 slot and from the motherboard itself.

To illustrate the possibilities of installing 3D cards, we took the GeForce RTX 3090, but the RTX 4090 Ti will fit here

The Divider 370 TG ARGB is equipped with three 120 mm fans by default: two are mounted on the front panel, one on the back. If necessary, the case can be stuffed with fans (you can install nine 120 mm or five 140 mm fans in total) or LSS (you can install two 360 mm radiators at the same time, one 240 mm format and one more 120 mm format).

Nuungulu, Chairman of the Steering Committee of UNAM’s Master’s Program in Blockchain Technology, opined that by introducing the degree program, the university hopes to “lay the groundwork for the eventual incubation of technology startups from the skills this program will create in the country.”

Blockchain is the future and we thought it was necessary to use this degree as a harbinger in developing these much needed skills in the country and the continent as a whole.

The chairman also revealed that the university is already “embedding” content based on blockchain technology into UNAM’s level 8 programs, which the institution hopes to deliver by next year.
