Vaccinations have gradually eased restrictions associated with the pandemic, which has weakened demand for laptops. In the Khrobuk segment, demand fell by 50% altogether. However, factors such as the wave of hardware upgrades in the enterprise segment with the return to offices in Europe and North America, and the desire of brands to start shipping products for the fourth quarter in advance to compensate for port congestion, have led to the laptop market. in the current quarter continued to grow steadily. This allowed the specialists of the analytical company TrendForce not only to confirm their previous forecast, but even to slightly adjust it upward. They expect to ship not 236 million, but 240 million laptops in 2021. This is a record figure, corresponding to an increase of 16.4% over last year.
Chromebooks, which were the main driver of laptop shipments growth in the first half of the year, are now in less demand. This is due to a decrease in the need for distance learning and market saturation. It is expected that in just one year, 36 million mobile computers in this category will be shipped.
144Hz, Ryzen 7 5800H and full-featured GeForce RTX 3060. Xiaomi’s most powerful gaming laptop, Redmi G 2021, available to order worldwide
Third-party retailers have begun offering Xiaomi’s recent innovation, the Redmi G 2021 gaming laptop, which until now has only been sold in China – internationally.
Xiaomi launched the Redmi G 2021 in the Chinese market in September. The model is being promoted as the most powerful laptop ever produced under the Xiaomi brands. In China, a device with an AMD Ryzen 7 5800H processor and a full-featured GeForce RTX 3060 is available for $ 1,085.
Now the global versions of Redmi G 2021 have become available for ordering internationally on several trading platforms at once – it is offered at least on AliExperss and Banggood.
The younger configuration, with Intel Core i5-11260H and GeForce RTX 3050, is offered by AliExperss and Banggood for $ 1,379.99 and $ 1,369.99, respectively. This variation, like the older one, offers a 16.1-inch screen with a 144 Hz refresh rate, 16 GB of RAM and a 512 GB solid-state drive. The older version, with AMD Ryzen 7 5800H and GeForce RTX 3060, is offered on AliExperss for $ 1,689.99.
No, the Apple M1 Max SoC is not capable of competing with the GeForce RTX 2080, but the performance is very high. There were tests of the new MacBook Pro in games
The GPU performance in the Apple M1 Max SoC exceeds 10 TFLOPS, which can be compared with the PS5 or GeForce RTX 2080. But the TFLOPS figure is not directly related to the performance in games. And now we have the opportunity to assess what Apple’s solution is capable of in games.
And it is really capable of a lot. In Tomb Rider, the top-end Apple platform performs at the level of the mobile GeForce RTX 3060. Yes, we are talking about the 70-watt version, that is, almost the slowest. Recall that the RTX 3060 for laptops has a power limit ranging from 60 to 115 watts.
However, we are still talking about a very productive mobile video card of the most modern generation. Yes, you need to wait for tests in more games to put together a more complete picture, but you can state the very high performance of Apple’s solution right now. M1 Pro, by the way, also looks decent. This is roughly the level of mobile GeForce RTX 3050 Ti or RTX 3050.
Of course, the MacBook Pro is not bought for games at all, since the situation with games on macOS is not easy. However, this does not prevent us from evaluating the new Apple SoCs simply in terms of their capabilities.
