Finally, it became clear what you can use the mixed reality headset from Apple. It will focus on sports, health and games
Apple’s mixed reality headset may debut as early as WWDC 2023, rumors and leaks about it appeared a few years ago, but only now it has become clear why this device is needed. According to Bloomberg, Apple will position the new product as a solution for sports and games.
Apple is actively working on creating attractive applications that should encourage users to purchase an expensive product in a segment that is completely new for Apple.
In particular, the focus will be on the Fitness + application for sports. The headset will allow users to train while watching a virtual instructor. True, how convenient it will be to do this with a helmet on your head, so far you can only guess.
The company is also preparing the Health app, which will allow users to meditate under some kind of graphic and sound design. Again, it is not very clear why some kind of picture is needed during meditation.
The focus will be on immersive viewing of content related to MLB and MLS sports leagues, and there will also be a special TV application for viewing videos in virtual reality.
The FaceTime service will receive a special version with Memoji-style avatars and virtual conference rooms. In addition, there will be books adapted for virtual reality.
Of course, there will also be ordinary familiar applications like a browser, a contact book, messages, notes, and so on, but adapted for a new device.
As far as games are concerned, things are becoming clearer since VR games have been around for a long time.
A new trend among cybercriminals: there is an attack on teenage gamers
The VTB Bank team spoke about a new trend among cybercriminals. Now malefactors have developed activity concerning fans of computer games. Attackers create sites that allegedly sell popular online games, which in fact turn out to be phishing resources and swindle accumulated money from teenagers.
Fraudsters develop online stores for gamers, attracting them with a big discount for buying games, accounts for them, collectibles, as well as the opportunity to replenish wallets in game stores. They actively promote their sites through search engines, make SMS mailings and create specialized chats in instant messengers to attract gamers. Gamers enter bank card details on the site, but in reality the money is transferred to an electronic wallet or card to scammers.
Most often, through phishing pages, scammers collect phone numbers, bank cards and logins from personal accounts in a banking application / Internet banking, SMS codes to confirm transactions or enter a personal account, passport data, SNILS. Often this information is further used in the framework of social engineering.
VTB Senior Vice President, Head of Digital Business Department Nikita Chugunov explained:
One of the most vulnerable categories of Internet users are children and teenagers who spend a lot of time online without having enough experience or knowledge to foresee danger.
The head of Nvidia promised not to leave gamers and came out with the protection of 8 GB of memory from the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti
Amid the explosion of interest in artificial intelligence, Nvidia’s stock soared to incredible heights, putting the company briefly in the club of companies with a capitalization of over $1 trillion. Against this background, gamers and journalists have a question whether all this will affect the gaming direction. However, the head of Nvidia assured that no one will forget about gamers.
First, RTX was invented for gamers, and for RTX, the most important technology is artificial intelligence. Without artificial intelligence, we wouldn’t be able to do real-time ray tracing. It was impossible. And the first AI project in our company, the main direction of AI was Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS). Deep learning. This is the pillar of RTX.
Second, notice what we’ve done with generative AI. The first application was ACE – Avatar Cloud Engine
Also, the head of Nvidia spoke out in defense of 8 GB of memory in the younger RTX 40 graphics cards.
Remember that the frame buffer is not a computer’s memory, but a cache. And how you manage cache matters a lot. As in the case of any other cache. And yes, the more cash, the better. However, you must compromise on many issues.
As a result, Jensen Huang called 8 GB for the RTX 4060 Ti the right amount. However, as we said today, even the RTX 3070 eventually appeared in serial form with 16 GB of memory.
Video card with a physical switch between 8 and 16 GB of memory. This project was implemented by the authors Paulo Gomes and Casual Gamers
We have already seen video cards with soldered additional memory, but the next project of Paulo Gomes and Casual Gamers is unique. The authors created a 3D map with a physical memory size switch: 8 GB or 16 GB.
The authors took the MSI GeForce RTX 3070 video card, dismantled the native memory chips and replaced them with chips of twice the capacity, so that the card eventually received 16 GB of memory.
Unfortunately, there are no technical details about the project, so how the ability to switch between two memory sizes was organized is unclear. Perhaps two BIOSes are used here. Perhaps later the video will be released on the Paulo Gomes channel, whose specialists were just responsible for the modification.
As for testing, in some games the additional amount of memory was very critical, while some do not notice it, which is logical. Still, the very shortage of 8 GB, which has been talked about so much lately, concerns only some of the most recent projects.
