More and more users of new Macs based on the Apple M1 SoC are reporting an alarming problem with their devices’ SSDs.
According to MacRumors, this problem is more common among those users who write large amounts of data to SSDs. Shortly after the purchase, they are faced with the problem of rapid degradation of the SSD.
In the most severe cases, Macs based on the Apple M1 SoC are reported to lose 10 to 13% of their maximum total bytes written (TBW).
Flash memory in solid state drives allows data to be written a specified number of times. The software ensures that the load is evenly distributed over the memory cells of the drive, but there is a time when the drive has been written so many times that it can no longer reliably store data. It is normal for SSDs to degrade or wear out, but SSDs shouldn’t deplete their ability to store data as quickly as new Macs do.
One user reported that his Mac used up 1% of its SSD in just two months, while another computer with a 2TB SSD lost 3%. Many users agree that newer Macs lose the ability to store data faster than previous models.
So far, Apple has not commented on the situation in any way.
JetStream are back. Palit GeForce RTX 4080 and 4070 Ti JetStream graphics cards unveiled – and they have one notable difference from the competition
Palit returns to the production of JetStream video cards. More than two years after the release of the GeForce RTX 3070 JetStream, the company introduced the GeForce RTX 4080 and 4070 Ti JetStream. These models differ from analogues in the absence of RGB backlighting.
At one time, manufacturers of various hardware were so carried away by the introduction of backlighting into everything that is possible that now its absence is already perceived as a “trick”. On the other hand, the frequencies here are completely standard, and from this point of view, the lack of backlight is more of a savings factor.
Video cards look almost the same – and rather modestly. However, they are long – 329 mm (after all, there are three fans) and rather thick (they take up 3.1 slots). It is possible that dual-fan models will also appear in the JetStream series, but already based on the GeForce RTX 4070 or GeForce RTX 4060. The cost of new products has not yet been announced.
MSI CreatorPro X17 HX powerful mobile workstation introduced. With Core i9-13980HX, GeForce RTX 3500 Ada Laptop and Mini-LED 4K display
After Nvidia officially announced new mobile 3D workstation accelerators based on Ada Lovelace architecture yesterday, MSI today unveiled its flagship CreatorPro X17 HX workstation with such graphics. More specifically, the laptop uses a dGPU GeForce RTX 3500 Ada Laptop with 12 GB of GDDR6 memory.
Display – Mini-LED with a diagonal of 17.3 inches, a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels and a frame rate of 144 Hz. The display meets the requirements of the DisplayHDR 1000 standard and provides coverage of 100% of the DCI-P3 color space.
There are four slots for installing RAM, with a maximum of 128 GB of RAM. There are also two M.2 SSD slots, one of which supports PCIe 5.0.
Laptop configuration includes IR webcam, SteelSeries customizable RGB keyboard, fingerprint scanner, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.3, and 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet, four Dynaudio system speakers, two USB-C ports with Thunderbolt 4 , three USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-A, one each Mini DisplayPort and HDMI 2.1.
The battery capacity is 100 Wh. Notebook dimensions – 397 x 330 x 23 mm, weight – 3.3 kg.
Nvidia says its Grace CPU Superchip is twice as fast as x86-compatible processors for the same power consumption
Nvidia said that its Arm-based Grace CPU Superchip processor in tests with real workloads shows a twofold increase in performance compared to x86-compatible CPUs in the same range of power consumption. With which processors Nvidia compared, it is not specified.
The company says these figures mean data centers can handle twice as much peak traffic for the same power consumption if they switch to Grace. Or they can cut their energy bills by almost half while maintaining productivity.
Nvidia itself says that Grace provides such results thanks to three main factors. Firstly, these are 72 Arm Neoverse V2 cores in one CPU (Grace CPU Superchip, we recall, contains two CPUs on one board), and secondly, in fact, the combination of two such CPUs via the NVLink-C2C interface with a bandwidth of 900 GB / s , third, the use of server-class LPDDR5X memory.
