According to Hetzner, the use of the company’s products for applications even remotely related to crypto assets is not allowed.

“The use of our products for any application related to mining, even remotely, is not allowed. including Ethereum. […] Even if you just run one node, we will consider it a violation of our rules, ”the official representative of the cloud provider said in a message.

The statement of the representative of Hetzner caused a wave of criticism in the community. According to Ethernodes, Hetzner accounts for 16% of Ethereum nodes at press time, with Amazon Web Services leading the way.

If the Ethereum community is forced to stop Hetzner’s services, it will jeopardize the health of at least 10% of the network. Some members of the crypto community speculate that Hetzner’s statement was the result of recent U.S. Treasury Department sanctions against Tornado Cash.

The next blow could be on decentralization. The forced search for hosting nodes, in particular the purchase of VPS hosting and VDS server services, will not only reduce the possibilities of location and reach, but also call into question how decentralized the blockchain actually is.

In fact, this situation is not new for the hosting provider. In May 2021, Hetzner banned mining on its servers after users started mining Chia cryptocurrency with their help.

Will the new Intel processors really become much more expensive? Prices for new items lit up a few hours before the announcement

Will the new Intel processors really become much more

Intel Raptor Lake processors will be unveiled in a few hours, but now we have the opportunity to look at prices that may be in line with the recommended ones.

Will the new Intel processors really become much more expensive?  Prices for new items lit up a few hours before the announcement

The fact is that the new items were lit up in the NewEgg store, and marked as recently released. Given the size and status of this network, it is possible that the prices listed there now correspond to those that Intel itself will reveal in a few hours.

And if so, then the same price increase that the company warned about earlier will take place.

  • Core i9-13900K – $660 ($70 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i9-13900KF – $630 ($65 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i7-13700K – $450 ($40 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i7-13700KF – $430 ($45 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i5-13600K – $330 ($40 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i5-13600KF – $310 ($45 more than its predecessor)

Thus, we will get a rise in price by 10-15%. If we talk about competition with AMD, then the Ryzen 5 7600X at a price of $300 is 10% cheaper than the Core i5-13600K, the Ryzen 7 7700X at a price of $400 is more than 10% cheaper than the Core i7-13700K, and the Core i9-13900K at a price of $630 is significantly more expensive than the 12-core Ryzen 9 7900X, but significantly cheaper than the top-end Ryzen 9 7950X. We wrote about the performance of new AMD products yesterday.

10-year-old Samsung Galaxy Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 received Android 13. True, unofficial

We are talking about an early assembly of LineageOS 20, in which a number of functions do not work: NFC, Bluetooth sound transmission during a call, memory card. Known issues are expected to be fixed as the firmware is updated.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 are ten years old, and you should not expect older devices running the latest Android 13 to run smoothly. Both smartphones had flagship specs for their time, but the 1GB and 2GB of RAM in the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 might not be enough for a full system at the moment.

Recall that the basic versions of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 were running Android 4.0.4 and 4.1.1, respectively. Android 4.3 and 4.4.4, respectively, were released as the final software versions for these smartphones.
