During the June announcement of Windows 11, Microsoft introduced the ability to work with Android applications as a key feature of the new operating system. Later it became known that this Windows 11 feature was postponed for at least several months, but sooner or later it will still be finalized and implemented in the OS. Its work is mediated by an emulator developed by Microsoft together with Intel. It is a common application called Windows Subsystem for Android, and it’s even available in the Microsoft Store already. Some of the users have already managed to run the Geekebnch test using the emulator, and now we have the Android equivalent of Windows 11 performance.
The emulator is defined as an 8-core Qualcomm platform paired with 4-6 GB of RAM (the amount of RAM in the emulator depends on the amount of RAM in the computer itself). The best results in the emulator tests are 695 points in a single-threaded test and 2432 points in a multi-threaded one. This is the level of the Samsung Galaxy S20: it has 764 and 2569 points, respectively. So you don’t have to worry that Windows 11’s performance might not be enough to open any Android application.
48-core CPU, 160-core GPU and 384GB RAM. This could be the platform of the new Apple Mac Pro
Apple has already migrated almost all of its PCs to its own single-chip systems, but it remains an open question what the company will be able to offer for the new Mac Pro. The new data says it will be SoC M2 Extreme.
The Macwolrd resource does not have any fresh data on this, but our colleagues decided to guess what the new platform might turn out to be, based on how Apple created the M1 line of solutions.
In particular, since the M2 has eight CPU cores, ten GPU cores, and 24GB of memory, the M2 Pro can get 10 CPU cores, 20 GPU cores, and 48GB of memory.
M2 Max in this case will offer the same CPU, but already 40 GPU cores and 96 GB of memory.
The M2 Ultra will have 24 CPU cores, 80 GPU cores, and 192GB of memory, while the M2 Extreme in Max Pro will have an incredible 48 CPU cores, 160 GPU cores, and 384GB of universal memory. What size such a platform will have and what performance it will provide is hard to even imagine.
True, there have already been rumors that the Mac Pro will receive a platform with a 40-core processor and a GPU with up to 128 cores, although this is impressive.
New Logitech Mice and Keyboards for iPhone and Mac Introduced, Including First Mechanical Keyboard
Logitech has announced a line of new mice and keyboards specifically designed to work with Mac computers. The list includes Logitech’s first mechanical keyboard optimized for Mac.
The $150 MX Mechanical Mini Keyboard for Mac has a Mac-designed layout with tools to customize keyboard shortcuts with Logi Options+. The keyboard features quiet, low-profile, backlit typing switches. It’s available in space gray or light gray and connects to up to three Apple devices using the Easy Switch feature.
Logitech is also bringing a new blueberry color to the K380 Multifunction Keyboard for Mac, which works with Mac, iPad, and iPhone. It is offered for $40
Logitech has announced a $100 MX Master 3S mouse that allows you to scroll 1000 lines per second and also has an adjustable DPI level (from 1000 to 8000). The mouse received quiet buttons and can connect to three devices at the same time.
Another mouse – Lift for Mac – is designed to place the hand in a natural position at an angle of 57 degrees. Logitech says this design puts less pressure on your wrists while you work and keeps your hand in a more natural position.
The latest novelty costs $70.
Black and White LCD, Wi-Fi, and $249 Mechanical Keyboard Pre-Order: Unique Writing Computer Introduced
Modern PCs and smartphones have long become universal devices that allow a lot. But AstroHous seems to think that dedicated systems are better. The developers have introduced a portable device called Freewrite Alpha, which is designed for writers. This is a kind of modern “reissue” of electric typewriters and word processors.
The novelty is equipped with a monochrome LCD display measuring 6.5 by 1 inch, which is enough to display from 2 to 6 lines of text at a time, depending on the font size. Alpha also has a full-size mechanical keyboard on Kailh Choc V2 switches, a USB-C port for charging a 4200 mAh battery, an 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi adapter, and some modern features, including basic text editing, cloud sync and autosave.
Note that Freewrite also has more advanced models with E ink screens, but the price is higher. The Alpha is available for pre-order for $249 and will retail for $349 in Summer 2023.
The main advantage of the device can be considered its instantaneous activation, which is sometimes important for writers. There’s also support for Freewrit mail and third-party services, including Dropbox, Google Drive, and Evernote.
The design of the Freewrite Alpha is inspired by classic devices from the 1980s and 1990s such as the AlphaSmart, Cambridge Z88, and TRS-80 Model 100. AstroHous plans to only sell English layout versions at this time, but other language options may be added if there is demand. .
