Perhaps Intel is again having problems with its new process technology.

Is Intel having problems with a new process technology again?  The company is evaluating the possibility of releasing Meteor Lake CPUs at TSMC facilities

Intel has been mastering the 10 nm process technology for a very long time, but at the moment it has already become familiar to consumers. It has produced Ice Lake, Tiger Lake CPUs, Alder Lake is based on it, and the upcoming Raptor Lake will also be based on it.

But then – sometime in 2023 – Meteor Lake processors are waiting for us, which are very important for Intel. Firstly, it will be the next full-fledged new generation (Alder Lake and Raptor Lake are related), and secondly, these CPUs should be produced using the 7nm process technology. Intel itself has spoken about this more than once, except that now it calls this process technology Intel 4.

According to recent data, Intel is now evaluating the possibility of releasing Meteor Lake processors using a different process technology. We are talking about the standards of 5 nm and the capacities of TSMC. In connection with what Intel thinks about this option, it is not clear, but this may be due to either Intel’s problems with the development of a new process technology, or the fact that TSMC’s solution is simply better.

Whether such a transfer would mean a delay in the release of Meteor Lake is not yet clear. It’s no secret that certain chips are initially created for their release according to a specific technical process, so adaptation may take additional time.

Integrating ChatGPT into Teams will speed up translation from language to language, which will improve productivity and user experience. Premium also announced end-to-end encryption of audio and video calls, and the application itself will be available as part of the Microsoft Office 365 package or separately.

That being said, while most of the smart debriefing features are available today, Microsoft specifies that some of them will not appear until the second quarter of 2023. And some features will only be in the premium version – for example, subtitles with text translation, increased security, and so on. Microsoft Teams Premium will also enable webinars so companies can launch events with registration waitlists, customizable start and end times.

Microsoft launched a 30-day trial of Teams Premium in December 2022 in Early Access. So far, the price is $7 per month until June 30th. Then the cost will rise to $10 per month.

Note that Microsoft is preparing to implement OpenAI technology in Word, PowerPoint and Outlook, and also wants to add the ChatGPT chat bot with artificial intelligence to Bing. In addition, Windows 12 will also receive new AI functions.

Nvidia when will the budget GeForce RTX 40s appear for

Photos of Nvidia GPUs of the Ada Lovelace generation, designed for low-cost video cards, have leaked to the Web.

Nvidia, when will the budget GeForce RTX 40s appear for the desktop segment?  Photos of junior GPUs AD107/AD106 for mobile RTX 4050/4060/4070 hit the Network

In the picture you can see the AD107 and AD106 GPUs. So far, there are no processor data carriers in the desktop segment, but they have already been announced in the mobile segment: these are the RTX 4050/4060 and RTX 4070.

The new GPUs are very compact. The smaller one has an area of ​​about 150-160 mm2, and the larger one has an area of ​​180-190 mm2. In comparison, the AD104, which the desktop RTX 4070 Ti is based on and the mobile RTX 4090 is supposed to be based on, measures almost 300mm2.

The AD107 has 3072 CUDA cores while the AD106 offers 4608 CUDA cores. In both cases, video cards will have a 128-bit memory bus.

Laptops based on graphics cards with these GPUs should hit the market soon.
