Well-known insider Mark Gurman (Mark Gurman) from Bloomberg called the exact release date of the new generation iPad 10 and iPad Pro tablets. According to him, the devices will appear on October 24. The iPad Pro 2022 is expected to feature the latest Apple M2 processor, while the iPad 10 is expected to feature the A14 Bionic chip. At the same time, new MacBook Pro laptops and, possibly, the next generation Mac mini will be presented, the source notes.

At the same time, Gurman assumes that Apple will not hold a full-fledged event, but will limit itself to issuing press releases. Then the new models will simply go on sale. Recall that the insider had previously reported the cancellation of the October presentation of Apple. Also in the week, which begins on Monday, October 24, the iPadOS 16.1 operating system may be released simultaneously with new devices, Gurman believes. Apple has postponed its release, which was originally planned for September, in order to eliminate all the bugs identified during beta testing.

What the new AMD processor is capable of for thin and cheap laptops. Ryzen 3 7320U Benchmarks Appeared

What the new AMD processor is capable of for thin

The network has the first review of a laptop based on the AMD Mendocino processor line.

In this case, we are talking about the recently introduced Acer Aspire 3 A315 and APU Ryzen 3 7320U. Recall that this processor contains four Zen 2 cores with SMT support and a Radeon 610M GPU with 128 stream processors and the RDNA 2 architecture at the core.

Unfortunately, there are few tests so far. In particular, we can evaluate the performance of the processor part only by Cinebench. There is more data from PCMark, but they show about the same picture.

As you can see, in multi-threaded mode, the novelty is approximately at the level of the Core i5-1130G7. The Ryzen 7 4700U is expectedly faster due to the higher number of cores.

Much more interesting is the new iGPU Radeon 610M. It is based on the most advanced RDNA 2 architecture for AMD embedded GPUs, but has only 128 stream processors. For comparison, the Steam Deck has 512 p.p., while the Radeon 680M in the Ryzen 7 6800U already has 768 p.p.

As you can see, a fairly fresh architecture does not compensate for the meager number of computing units. As a result, in 3DMark, the Ryzen 3 7320U loses a lot to all test participants. Unfortunately, there are no solutions with similar performance among them, because even the Ryzen 7 4700U is almost twice as fast.

Thus, the gaming Ryzen 3 7320U cannot be called even with a big stretch. Of course, it is possible to play some old games, but there will be big problems with modern ones. In fact, we even have examples.

As you can see, Forza Horizon 5 can be played at 720p with the lowest graphics settings and active FidelityFX CAS technology. Skyrim works at 60 fps, but at 720p at medium settings and GTA V works in much the same way. That is, you can somehow play, but you have to sacrifice a lot.

It is worth remembering that the same Acer Aspire 3 A315 costs only $ 400, that is, the Ryzen 3 7320U feels very good in this price segment.

Laptop shipments collapsed in October by 40 no demand

According to DigiTimes Research, the cumulative shipments of the five major laptop manufacturers (not including Apple) in October decreased by 13% compared to the previous month and by almost 40% in annual terms. Analysts note that the reduction in demand from ordinary users, enterprises and educational institutions is to blame.

Laptop shipments collapsed in October by 40% - no demand

If we talk about the market structure, then Lenovo is the leader in terms of deliveries, although the advantage over HP is small (alas, specific figures are not given). Dell, in third place, is the only company that managed to increase the volume of shipments, but everything is very relative here: plus only because of the comparison with the low base of September, when demand in the corporate sector sank badly.

And most of all in October, Acer and Asus reduced deliveries: each by more than 20% compared to September. But there is nothing to do with enterprises or the educational sector: the deliveries of these two companies sank due to weak consumer demand.

Analysts note that the combined shipments of Taiwan’s top three contract notebook manufacturers fell 13% in October from September. Separately, it is noted that the supply of Quanta, which is responsible for assembling the MacBook, has fallen sharply.
