Intel aims to become the second largest semiconductor manufacturer in the world by 2030. To do this, she will have to bypass Samsung, which now just occupies this very second place.

Intel wants to be number two by 2030.  The company spoke about its plans for the market of contract manufacturing of semiconductors

For itself, Intel has been producing semiconductor products for a very long time, but last year the company created Intel Foundry Services and, as part of a new strategy, announced that it would become a contract manufacturer, that is, it would produce products for other companies, such as Samsung or TSMC, which leads now this market.

Our goal is to be the number two foundry in the world by the end of the decade and we expect to achieve leading foundry margins

We don’t have exact figures from Intel at the moment, but the IFS division earned $576 million this year. With the completion of its acquisition of Tower Semiconductor in early 2023, Intel will increase its IFS division’s annual revenue by approximately $1.5 billion annually. After the deal is completed, Intel will rise to seventh or eighth place in the market, but in terms of revenue, it will still be significantly inferior to Samsung Foundry, or even more so to TSMC. The last two now occupy 16.3% and 53.6% of the market, respectively. But UMC and GlobalFoundries, which are in third and fourth places, respectively, occupy only 6.9% and 5.9%.

At the moment, Intel can not compete with Samsung and TSMC in terms of modern technical processes, but Intel has very serious plans. According to its roadmap, the 18A (1.8 nm) process technology should be mastered as early as 2025, while Samsung and TSMC plan to ship such products only in 2026. However, the difficulties with the development of 10 nm standards, which Intel still remains the most modern, make us be more careful about the company’s plans.

The first unofficial iPhone 14 Pro Max with a waterfall

A Chinese modder who runs the Fix Apple Twitter channel posted photos and videoshowing the iPhone 14 Pro Max with its side-curved waterfall screen.

The engineer confirmed that in order to create such a modified iPhone 14 Pro Max, he had to replace the middle frame of the smartphone and install a new display. At the same time, the touch screen retained its performance, but it is still unknown how Dynamic Island works and whether the Face ID module has retained its performance.

He also added that he is ready to make such a modification on request, but the price for such a procedure is not advertised. It is also unknown how much time is spent on such a rework.

The person who runs the Apple fix channel claims to have worked as an engineer at Apple and Huawei. On his page, there are many photos and videos showing the insides of the iPhone 14 Pro Max, as well as upgrading the smartphone to install two SIM cards.

The first Tesla trucks with megawatt charging have been delivered

Tesla made the first deliveries of its Semi truck to customers on Thursday evening, five years after the unveiling. The online presentation showed trucks adorned with the liveries of Pepsi and Frito-Lay, a snack food subsidiary of PepsiCo.

Tesla Semi was shown as a prototype in 2017. Then Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced that production would begin in 2019. At the same time, during today’s presentation, Musk did not say how many trucks were delivered by PepsiCo and how many cars were produced in total.

The all-electric truck features an unusual design in which the driver sits in the center of the cab rather than on the side. Tesla boasts about the truck’s power, saying it accelerates much faster, even when fully loaded, than traditional diesel-powered trucks. During the presentation, a video was shown showing how a fully loaded Tesla Semi accelerates up a steep hill and overtakes other trucks.

Because the Tesla Semi doesn’t have a multi-speed transmission like diesel trucks, it’s also much easier to drive. According to Musk, the truck can travel 800 km on a single charge. It has three electric motors, one of which drives the truck most of the time, while the other two are used primarily for acceleration and hard traction. According to the Tesla leader, the truck can pull up to 37 tons.

The trucks were announced to support megawatt ultra-fast chargers, however it was not announced how long it would take to recharge the truck. These chargers will also be available for use by Cybertruck drivers when the Tesla pickup goes on sale, Musk said.

Interestingly, the Tesla Autopilot system, touted in the first presentation five years ago as a great benefit for long-haul truck drivers, was not mentioned during the new presentation.

The GeForce RTX 4060 and Radeon RX 7600 will have

The latest flagship graphics cards from Nvidia and AMD do not support the PCIe 5.0 interface, but it may appear in simpler graphics cards. According to the latest data, models with AMD Navi 33 and Nvidia AD 106 GPUs will receive PCIe 5.0 support.

The GeForce RTX 4060 and Radeon RX 7600 will have something that the GeForce RTX 4090 and Radeon RX 7900 XTX don't have.  They will receive support for PCIe 5.0

The most likely production models based on these GPUs are the Radeon RX 7600 and GeForce RTX 4060, respectively. Both will be released next year, presumably, their debut may take place at Computex 2023, which starts on May 30. Full support for the interface is out of the question – for these models, eight PCIe 5.0 lanes will be enough.
