European aerospace corporation Airbus SE plans to ramp up production of its popular narrow-body aircraft next year despite continued supply chain challenges.

Airbus wants to increase the production of A320 narrow-body aircraft: by the beginning of 2024, the company intends to produce 65 such airliners monthly

In particular, the company intends to increase the production of A320 family liners to 65 per month by early 2024 from about 50 aircraft per month this year, Airbus CEO Guillaume Faury said. The aircraft manufacturer had previously hoped to increase production at a faster pace, but revised the milestones of the plan in July due to supply chain issues.

At the same time, Airbus does not intend to stop expanding production: its plan involves the production of 75 aircraft per month by 2025. This will help the company meet growing demand. Airbus has previously said it does not have the capacity to accept new orders for the A320 until 2028.

At the same time, the company notes that the situation in the weakest link in the supply chain associated with the supply of engines has improved. Airbus suppliers – General Electric Co. and Pratt & Whitney (owned by Raytheon Technologies Corp.) have begun to fulfill their obligations. As a result, the number of aircraft in production waiting for their engine dropped to 10 at the end of the third quarter from 30 in the middle of the year.

However, Airbus does not hope that these problems will be completely resolved next year due to restrictions in the supply of raw materials and labor shortages. “We have a lot of components coming late. The situation will not stabilize until the middle of next year or maybe even longer.Foree said.

Recall that earlier the company reported on the growth of profits and said that by the end of the year it plans to produce about 700 aircraft. Unlike Airbus, the American Boeing is far from being so rosy.

The iQOO Neo 7 SE smartphone, which will be presented on December 2, will receive a very productive platform, albeit not a flagship level.

Latest Dimensity 8200 and 120W charger.  iQOO Neo 7 SE parameters became known

Thanks to the TENAA base, it became known that the new product will be equipped with the Dimensity 8200 SoC, which has not yet been presented. Also, the device will receive a battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh with 120-watt charging. As you can see, this level of charging is becoming more common in mid-range smartphones.

Of course, we do not yet know the prices of iQOO Neo 7 SE, but iQOO Neo 6 SE started at $390. By the way, this device also offered optical stabilization for the main camera, so you can expect it in the novelty.

iQOO Neo 7 SE should also get a 6.78-inch AMOLED screen, 8 to 16 GB of RAM, 128 to 512 GB of flash memory and a 64-megapixel main camera.

Will the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti stay for at least another year? Nvidia is ending production of almost all mid-range graphics cards.

Will the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti stay for at least

Nvidia has decided to completely stop the production of several models of video cards of past generations.

Will the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti stay for at least another year?  Nvidia is ending production of almost all mid-range graphics cards.

We are talking about the GeForce RTX 2060 Super, RTX 2060, GTX 1660 Super and GTX 1660 cards. The source does not have any details, but we already know that there is an RTX 3050 to replace the RTX 2060/2060 Super, but the GTX 1660 cards there are simply no replacements. The source doesn’t mention the GTX 1660 Ti, though, so it’s possible Nvidia is keeping this card alone to close the hole in the sub-$300 segment.

In particular, in Europe now for the GTX 1660/1660 Super/1660 Ti they are asking for about the same money: from about 230-240 euros. At the same time, the cheapest RTX 3050 now costs 300 euros. No more affordable cards will appear in the RTX 30 line, and it’s not worth waiting for cheap RTX 40 cards in the foreseeable future, because even the RTX 4060 is supposedly released only next summer.

For comparison, AMD has a modern Radeon RX 6600 in the sub-$300/Euro segment, which is much more powerful than any GTX 1660, and along with the RTX 3050.

Mutny Continent hosted mobile internet for the first time

VimpelCom (trademark Beeline) announced that it has become the first and currently the only operator that has built infrastructure and launched cellular mobile communications in the village of Mutny Materik.

Mutny Continent hosted mobile internet for the first time

“Mudny Mainland” is a remote settlement in the Komi Republic, the distance to the nearest city is almost 300 km. As part of expanding Beeline network coverage in the region, the operator launched 4G in this village as well. Previously, only voice calls were available to a population of about 900 people, and even then, not cellular, but through Beeline satellite communication channels.

As the operator notes, the launch of cellular communication was complicated not only by the remoteness of the village from other settlements, but also by its inaccessibility. “Mudny Continent” is located on the banks of the Pechora River, it can be reached in the warm season only by water transport or by helicopter, and in the cold season along a temporary road – a winter road.

Director of the Syktyvkar branch of Beeline Konstantin Ikonnikov noted:

Communication is now one of the vital needs, and the mobile Internet allows you to quickly resolve many important issues and gain access to digital services, such as government services. Understanding what social task we are performing, Beeline is building a network even in the most remote and hard-to-reach corners of the Komi Republic and the whole country, despite the rather harsh climate and vast distances. Developing communication in such conditions is always a challenge that we cope with, and the launch of 4G Internet in the village of Mutny Mainland is another confirmation of this.
