Elon Musk’s “revolutionary” tunnels near Las Vegas disappointed users

Published

on

According to various media reports, journalists and ordinary users, who have already managed to ride through the tunnels built under the Las Vegas Convention Center, criticized the latest brainchild of Elon Musk.

The main reason for criticism is that, in fact, this is not the revolution promised by Musk, but the most ordinary tunnel. In one of the test races, a speed record was set, which was 185 km / h. At the time of the official launch, a speed of up to 240 km / h was promised.

However, in fact, people are driven at a speed of 40-60 km / h. Therefore, as a result, cars pass the 1.2 km tunnel 3-4 times longer than previously expected. The Boring Company previously stated that these tunnels turn a 45-minute walk into a two-minute ride.

At maximum capacity, The Boring Company plans to use 62 Tesla Model 3, Model X and Model Y electric vehicles, which will be able to carry 5 people (about 4,400 people per hour) at a higher speed. But now there are fewer cars, three people each sit in them, and the driver is at the wheel. All for the sake of safety at the initial stage.

Up to 8 XE cores and 6 GB of memory

The database of the SiSoftware Sandra test package has fresh data on the upcoming Arc A40 Pro and Arc A50 Pro graphics cards. These are graphics accelerators for workstations that are designed for engineering tasks.

Up to 8 XE cores and 6 GB of memory

The A50 Pro has a full ACM-G11 GPU with 8 Xe cores (128 execution units/1024 FP32 cores), while the A40 Pro is likely to get a stripped-down version of the chip. The clock frequency is 2.45 GHz.

Both cards have 6 GB GDDR6 memory, indicating a 96-bit memory bus. In this regard, both models are similar to the Arc A380 mobile card, which has almost the same configuration.

Thus, the company continues to prepare its entry-level products. When high-performance gaming and professional solutions based on the ACM-G10 GPU will appear, it is not reported. It is also not yet clear whether the Arc A40 Pro and Arc A50 Pro cards will be available in retail or whether they will appear only as part of workstations.

Earlier, Intel introduced its first gaming graphics card for $150.

Apples mixed reality headset will be more powerful than many

Apple’s mixed reality headset should get the M2 single-chip system. Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman thinks so.

Apple's mixed reality headset will be more powerful than many laptops.  She will receive SoC Apple M2

Earlier it was said that the headset will receive SoC M1, but apparently Apple has changed the configuration. It is also worth remembering that the current leaks speak of two platforms, and the second will be responsible for processing data from the device’s numerous sensors.

The headset will receive M2 with 16 GB of memory, that is, the performance of the device will be higher than that of many laptops on the market. At the same time, various rumors suggest that Apple has previously encountered the problem of overheating of the headset, so such a powerful platform, apparently, is also a minus.

At the moment, the headset is expected to be introduced in early 2023. It is also likely that for the first time Apple will show it at an event in the fall, but the device will enter the market next year.
