According to unofficial data, SMIC managed to bring the percentage of yield of suitable 14-nanometer products to 95%.

The largest Chinese manufacturer of microcircuits, Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation (SMIC), according to Chinese sources, was able to bring the percentage of output of suitable products manufactured at 14 nm to 95%.

However, some industry observers have expressed doubts about the veracity of these reports, especially since they do not come from the manufacturer itself. Doubts are based on the fact that the share of 14nm products in the total production of SMIC is still too small.

In the last quarter of 2020, sales of microcircuits manufactured at 14 and 28 nm norms accounted for only 5% of SMIC’s total revenue. In the third quarter, their share was 15%. At the same time, the company shipped about the same number of plates (1.4 million), but earned less ($ 980 million). Given the decline in revenue, it is unlikely that the yield rate has increased.

On the other hand, if the yield information is correct, it means that the company is ready to move to tighter regulations. The next step is 10nm technology, but the Chinese company is believed to be moving straight to 7nm technology. This is done to ensure the release of the advanced element base required by Huawei Technologies, which came under pressure from the United States and is deprived of the opportunity to purchase modern microcircuits from foreign suppliers.

At the same time, the ability of SMIC to master more subtle norms is hindered by the same pressure from the United States. The company is blacklisted by the US Department of Commerce and cannot purchase advanced equipment. While it was recently revealed that ASML and SMIC have extended their equipment supply contract until the end of 2021, it looks like SMIC will only be able to expand semiconductor manufacturing through mature manufacturing processes.

Samsung will indeed equip the flagship smartphone Galaxy S23 Ultra with its 200-megapixel sensor for the main camera.

The Galaxy S23 Ultra will indeed get a 200MP camera.  Samsung allegedly confirmed this to its partners

The source claims that Samsung has already confirmed this information to its partners. Recall that we have heard such rumors before. At the same time, it is not yet clear which sensor the Korean giant will use, but rumors said that this would be a solution that has not yet been announced.

The Galaxy S23 Ultra will be the only flagship device with such a camera, but that’s to be expected, as the latest generation S2x Ultra models have always had a different camera than the younger versions. At the same time, it is possible that the Galaxy S23 / S23 + can get 108-megapixel sensors, previously reserved for Ultra versions.

Recall, the other day Motorola introduced the first smartphone with a 200-megapixel camera. The Moto X30 Pro features the first of its kind Samsung ISOCELL HP1 sensor.

Operating at only 66 96 core AMD processors wipe out all

The test results of two AMD Epyc server processors of the Genoa generation with 96 cores each have appeared on the Web. According to available data, this is either Epyc 9664 or Epyc 9654.

The CPU was tested in Cinebench R23, and the catch is that this software recognizes a maximum of 256 threads. Two 96-core processors have 384 threads thanks to SMT support. That is, the result obtained in the benchmark reflects only two thirds of the capabilities of the tested pair of CPUs.

Despite this, the processors scored over 110,000 points in multi-threaded mode. In a single thread, the result was 1302 points.

For comparison, one 64-core Threadripper 5995WX gains about the same amount (even a little more), but overclocked to 5.15 GHz using liquid nitrogen. The comparison with the direct competitor Xeon Platinum 8480+ is more interesting. A system with two of these 56-core processors scores only about 68,500 points. True, the source says that there were problems in the operation of these CPUs, so serial processors may show slightly better results. However, in any case, the gap is huge, because even two current-generation 64-core Epyc 7763 score 98,000 points. As a result, it is not yet clear whether the new Intel server processors will be able to somehow withstand the monsters of AMD. In addition, judging by the latest data, Sapphire Rapids-SP will eventually be delayed even more and will not be released until next year.

The specs for almost every Intel desktop processor of the Raptor Lake generation have surfaced online.

Almost all new Intel Core processors will have 14 or more cores.  Specs for most Raptor Lake CPUs revealed

According to this document, we are waiting for 14 CPUs with the number of cores from four to 24, while there will be only one quad-core – Core i3-13100. The next model (Core i5-13400) will have 10 cores, and it will also be the only one, because the Core i5-13500 and a number of older CPUs will already offer 14 cores.

Only the Core i9s will get the new die type, as only they will have a full configuration with eight large and 16 small cores. By the way, the Core i9-13900KS is not in the table, so it really may not be, especially if we recall the recent data on the 350-watt power limit for older Cores.
