Computers are devices endowed with calculation capabilities that far exceed the effort made by a common computer, so they are used for highly complex tasks.
In that sense, United States and China They currently hold the top positions with the most powerful supercomputers.
However, it seems that Europe wants to change this situation in its favor and create a supercomputer with a performance at the level of the best in this field.
The European High Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (ECAP) He is the one who has been awarded this mission for which he will receive financial support from the EU with an amount of 250 million euros.
Through this money, the construction of a high-end supercomputer equipped with capabilities that will allow it to carry out up to billion operations per second.
Also, the EU hopes that over time the use of supercomputers will spread to the private sector and not just something carried out by employees of industry and administration.
Added to this, the organization in charge of the project will seek that this supercomputer has sufficient capacity to carry out a level 1 quality measurement that gives you the potential to enter the Top500.
In addition, it is intended to create a hardware for this equipment that surpasses the performance of the fastest supercomputer in the world currently located in Japan.
There is no doubt how complex and challenging it will be for Europe to make this project a reality, taking into account the opponents to beat who lead the Top500 list represented by the Tianhe-2A from China, followed by the supercomputer US Department of Energy Summit. and on top of everything is the Fugaku from Japan with 442 petaflops per second (Pflops / s).
It is worth mentioning that within Europe there is a country that already has a supercomputer on this list. Its about HPC5 Dell PowerEdge belonging to the Italian energy company ENI spa covered by Nvidia which occupies the eighth position and has a score of 35.5 Pflop / s.
In regards to this new project, Europe wants the resulting supercomputer to provide a performance that exceeds twice the Fugaku, as well as an area of 700 square meters to house its structure and 100 Gbit / s in broadband connectivity.
Whatsapp allows you to “quietly” leave a group
The WhatsApp team is working on a new feature that will allow users to “silently” leave group chats.
Currently, when someone leaves a group chat, WhatsApp announces it to all members of the group. Now it is impossible to quietly leave the group so that all members do not know about it. But soon this may change.
The thematic resource WABetainfo drew attention to the innovation in the beta version – when a user leaves a group, only group administrators receive a notification. When a group member opts out, a dialog box appears that says “Only you and the group admins will be notified that you have left the group.”
Americans are more satisfied with the old and very primitive LG smartphone than the iPhone 11 Pro Max. ACSI rating published
The American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) has published a press release on the satisfaction of Americans with certain brands and devices. In this document, we are most interested in smartphones.
And here the leader was the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. It could be said that this is unexpected, since in the US Samsung is still about half behind Apple in sales, but in fact a year earlier, the Samsung device was also in the lead in a similar list, and two years ago the company’s smartphones occupied all the first three places.
Be that as it may, the flagship of 2020 became the leader, which at the time of release was scolded for various shortcomings and features. Unexpectedly, LG Aristo 3, unknown outside the US, took second place. Moreover, this is a budget smartphone in 2019 on the SoC Snapdragon 425! How he even got on the leaderboard is completely unclear. Closes the top three iPhone 11 Pro Max.
Also on the leaderboard are HTC U12+, Pixel 4 and iPhone XR. In general, the list turned out to be as diverse as possible.
If we talk about brands, here Samsung and Apple share the first line of the rating with 80 points each. The top five also includes Google, Motorola and LG.
The photo allows you to compare the dimensions of all models of the iPhone 14 line and the dimensions of the camera units
A photo of covers allegedly intended for Apple’s new generation smartphones has appeared on the Web. The authenticity of the image cannot be verified, but in general everything looks plausible.
The two larger cases are for iPhone 14 Max and 14 Pro Max. The other two are made for the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro.
The difference in camera cutouts indicates that the lower models are likely to retain the two-sensor configuration, while the older ones will get three. At the same time, if we compare these cases with cases for current models, it becomes clear that the dimensions of the camera blocks will grow again, which allows us to hope for even better photos and videos. Recall that numerous rumors suggest that the older smartphones of the new generation will receive new 48-megapixel image sensors for the main cameras.
