The German antitrust authority today said it has launched an investigation to determine if Apple is abusing its dominance in the market. Earlier, similar proceedings were launched against other American tech giants: Facebook, Amazon and Google.

Based on the new competition law regulations targeting large tech companies, the German Federal Cartel Authority (FCO) intends to assess in the first phase of its investigation whether Apple has a dominant market position.

“Based on the results of the first stage, (FCO) intends in a possible further proceedings to assess in more detail the specific actions of Apple,” the source said. “In this regard, we have received complaints regarding potentially anti-competitive practices.”

The FCO clarifies that one of the complaints came from an association of advertising and media representatives. It concerns user tracking using Apple’s iOS 14.5 operating system.

An Apple spokesman reacted to the report of the investigation: “We look forward to discussing our approach with the FCO and to have an open dialogue on any of their issues.”

GeForce GTX 1630 is officially presented GTX 1650 at minimum

Nvidia today officially introduced the budget GeForce GTX 1630 video card. Interestingly, as in the case of the new Intel Arc A380, sales started in China – there the GeForce GTX 1630 can be purchased for 1000-1100 yuan, which is approximately $ 150 (including VAT). Similar money is asked in China for the Radeon RX 6400 and, in fact, the same Intel Arc A380.

Inno3D was one of the first to introduce its versions of the GeForce GTX 1630

The GeForce GTX 1630 is as close as possible to its older sister: it has the same TDP level (75 W), the same cooling system, the same architecture and the same printed circuit board. The only difference is that the GeForce GTX 1630 has a narrower memory bus (64 bits vs. 128, so the memory bandwidth is significantly less – 96 GB / s vs. 192 GB / s) and fewer CUDA cores – 512 instead of 896. If we talk Regarding the marking of GPUs, the GeForce GTX 1630 uses TU117-150, and the GTX 1650 uses TU117-300. The GPU frequency of the novelty was 1785 MHz, the amount of GDDR6 memory is 4 GB.

It is expected that the GeForce GTX 1630 will be even slower than the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, released, for a moment, six years ago. Why Nvidia decided to release the GeForce GTX 1630 right now, when the cost of video cards has simply collapsed, is a big question. However, the wider the range, the better for users. There is no data yet on how much the GeForce GTX 1630 will cost in other regions.

One of the first companies to introduce the GeForce GTX 1630 was Inno3D. The company introduced the new product in two versions – overclocked Twin X2 OC with two fans and Compact – with one fan and standard frequencies.
