The source learned that Hitachi intends to acquire the American software developer GlobalLogic for $ 9.6 billion. If completed, the deal would be the largest acquisition in the history of the Japanese conglomerate.

Recently, Hitachi has been rapidly redeveloping itself, focusing on the information technology and services sector and ditching less promising businesses.

Founded in 2000, GlobalLogic is headquartered in California, providing software development, digital engineering services, IT outsourcing, and research and development.

Currently, 55% of the shares are owned by the company’s management, and the remaining 45% are owned by CPP Investments, which manages Canadian state pension funds, and the Swiss investment fund Partners Group. Hitachi plans to buy back all shares from existing shareholders and transfer the company under the auspices of Hitachi Global Digital Holdings, which oversees Hitachi’s US IT business. The deal is expected to be completed in July.

The metaverse was not invented by Facebook, it is a concept that has been studied for many years, and many companies have taken their first steps to make it more and more sophisticated.

So much so, that there is a couple in India who have decided to celebrate their wedding by reuniting their loved ones in the metaverse, in a digital three-dimensional version of the world of Harry Potter.

The couple will host the reception with Harry Potter as the main theme, and the avatar of the bride’s late father will be in attendance. The wedding will be the morning of February 6, and the reception will be later, in the metaverse, with digital avatars of friends and family.

The project has been made possible thanks to the collaboration of the startup TardiVerse Metaverse, which organizes virtual events on the Polygon blockchain. boyfriend posted On twitter a 45-second video announcing the event.

As you can see, the avatars, in matte black jackets, are standing with Hogwarts castle in the background, so it looks like the thing will be animated. Guests will be able to choose an avatar as soon as they enter, and enjoy the virtual party “incarnating” the character they have decided on (clothes and accessories).

At Bloomberg Intelligence they believe that the market opportunity for the metaverse will reach 800 billion dollars by 2024, and holding events virtually seems to be one of the great niches.

AMD Prepares Radeon RX 6950XT, RX 6850 XT, and RX 6750 XT Graphics Cards with Faster Memory

Published

on

There are more and more rumors on the Web about the release of upgraded AMD video cards of the current line. This will not be a full answer to the GeForce RTX 40, but the “red” 3D accelerators will add about 2-5% performance due to the new faster memory.

AMD Prepares Radeon RX 6950XT, RX 6850 XT, and RX 6750 XT Graphics Cards with Faster Memory

The current Navi 21 and Navi 22 GPUs that power the Radeon RX 6900 XT, RX 6800 XT, RX 6800, and RX 6700 XT are equipped with 16 GHz memory. Meanwhile, the new budget AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT received 18 GHz memory. And this gap, when the budget model has a faster memory than the top one, AMD, according to rumors, is going to close it: the updated models on Navi 21 and Navi 22 will receive 18 GHz memory.

Rumor has it that the new models will be labeled the same as the updated models of the mobile line: similar to how the Radeon RX 6800M became the RX 6850M, the new memory Radeon RX 6900 XT will be called RX 6950 XT, RX 6800 XT – RX 6850 XT, RX 6800 – RX 6850, RX 6700 XT – RX 6750 XT. It is believed that in this way AMD will slightly strengthen its line before the release of Intel Arc Alchemist video cards. Updated Radeon should debut in the second quarter, that is, they will be released exactly no later than June.

Earlier there were rumors that AMD will transfer to the 6-nanometer GPU process Radeon RX 6600 XT and Radeon RX 6700 XT, but so far there is no evidence that the top models, along with faster memory, will receive GPUs on a thinner process technology. At the same time, with the new faster memory, power consumption parameters will change somewhat (it should increase slightly) and prices will rise slightly.
