The Eisblock Aurora Acryl GPX-A Radeon RX 6800 Nitro + waterblock, designed for the Sapphire Nitro + Radeon RX 6800 OC video card with 16 GB of GDDR6 memory, has appeared in the Alphacool catalog with the mark “new”.

The base of the waterblock is made of copper and nickel plated. On the inner side of the base, in the area adjacent to the GPU, there is an array of microchannels formed by ribs 0.6 mm wide. In the description, the manufacturer notes that the improvement of heat transfer is facilitated by a decrease in the thickness of the thermal interface to 1 mm. The thickness of the base itself has been reduced from 7 mm for the previous generation models to 5.5 mm. Coolant flow has been optimized to improve cooling of all components, including memory chips and voltage regulators.

The lid is made of transparent plastic and is decorated with addressable lighting. The dimensions of the water block are 143 x 260 x 24.5 mm. The kit includes a 118 x 260 x 6 mm aluminum plate to be attached to the back of the PCB. It distributes thermal and mechanical loads, and also improves the appearance of the video card.

Users in China have a special love for Xiaomi Mi 6: many still believe that the company has not yet released a flagship that can replace this model. As a result, users still have a fairly large number of Mi 6s in their hands, which means that there are enough devices for experiments. The pictures below show the result of such an experiment.

One of the users managed to install Windows 11 on ARM on Mi 6. Of course, the system does not work super fast (the OS loads for more than a minute, some menus inside the OS itself take several seconds to load), but in general, Windows 11 on Mi 6 is quite efficient.

Operating profit for the year decreased by 28%, to $ 1.3 billion, net – by 33%, to $ 1.1 billion.

During the quarter, the company paid out $ 1.5 billion in dividends to shareholders.
