Asus introduced a unique monitor with a frame rate of 500 Hz. ROG Swift 500 Hz received a TN panel
While monitors with frame rates over 240Hz are still rare, Asus took the ROG Swift 500Hz model and showed it. As you might guess, with a frame rate of 500 Hz!
At the moment, the maximum value is 360 Hz, so there is an impressive jump. The monitor is coming out as part of Nvidia’s G-Sync initiative, which means it will support the corresponding technology.
The monitor is positioned as a solution for eSports, which is logical, since the average gamer is unlikely to feel those same 500 Hz.
As for the rest of the parameters, the monitor is based on a 24-inch TN panel with Full HD resolution. Of course, this may seem outdated, but still we are talking about a professional tool, so for potential users, this is not all minuses. But the release date on the market is still unknown. It is possible that the monitor will be released only at the end of the year.
Attacker tried to smuggle 84 SSDs across the Chinese border by hiding them inside an electric scooter
Chinese customs continues to periodically encounter unusual ways of transporting computer components. For example, on March 3, at the Guangdong-Macau checkpoint, an unnamed person tried to smuggle 84 SSDs across the border.
The man hid these same SSDs inside an electric scooter. 84 M.2 drives. were packed and hidden in the steering rack. This is a very convenient place, but the problem is that this method will not help to hide contraband from X-ray inspection. Actually, this is how the man was caught.
The official website of the customs specifies that it was about Kingston drives, but their volume is not specified. It is also worth clarifying that the attacker tried to import the SSD into China.
The most powerful Yoga laptop. Lenovo Yoga Pro Extreme Edition lit up in China with Supernova SoM processor module
In China, the Lenovo Yoga Pro Extreme Edition laptop lit up live – it will be one of the most powerful models in the Yoga line. The device will receive an Intel Core i9-13905H processor, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 Laptop 3D accelerator and 64 GB of RAM. But the most interesting thing is that instead of the usual CPU, the Supernova SoM processor module will probably be installed here.
In January of this year, Asus and Intel introduced the Supernova SoM processor module, which integrates the latest generation CPU and LPDDR5X RAM. The joint “packaging” of these components has a number of advantages: firstly, the physical distance between the RAM and the CPU is reduced to almost a minimum, secondly, the memory operates at a higher frequency, and thirdly, the motherboard can be made more compact.
It is known that the Supernova SoM module will be used in one of the Asus laptops, but it has not yet been released. However, Lenovo also seems to be taking the technology into its arsenal: it is expected to be used in the Yoga Pro Extreme Edition.
Apparently, Lenovo Yoga Pro Extreme Edition will be a 16-inch laptop. The official premiere of new items is expected at a large Lenovo event in China on March 21. Then it will become clear whether Supernova SoM is really used in this model.
Diablo IV tested with GeForce RTX 4090: you can safely play in 8K at maximum graphics settings
After the release of the public beta version of Diablo IV, the first reports began to appear about how demanding the game is on the hardware platform. In general, if a good video card is installed in the computer, then there is nothing to worry about performance: everything will work well at the maximum resolution and graphics settings.
In particular, DSOGaming Diablo 4 was tested using the following assembly: an Intel Core i9-9900K processor, 16 GB of DDR4-3800 MHz RAM and a GeForce RTX 4090. It turned out that such a computer allows you to play with maximum graphics settings at a resolution of 8K and 40-50 FPS.
The beta version of the game only supports DLSS2 technology, if you activate it, then the frame rate will easily exceed the level of 60 fps. Blizzard and Nvidia have announced that DLSS3 will be supported when the final game releases on June 6th, which means that in-game performance will be even better with it.
