Fully obeying worldly wisdom “to make a person good, do him bad at first, and then return it to how it was”, Microsoft returns the clock to the taskbar of the second monitor (and subsequent ones too) in Windows 11. The simplest and most convenient feature implemented in Windows 10, For some reason, it disappeared from Windows 11, and users even had to install third-party applications like ElevenClock to display the clock in its rightful place on the second monitor. But soon it won’t be needed anymore.

An old new feature is being tested in the next Windows 11 update in the Windows Insiders channel. Hence, in the custom version, the clock will return to the second monitor’s taskbar after about a couple of months.

Adapter reviews will be published on January 26th. Then it will become clear how interesting the new Nvidia turned out to be. Recall that it has a recommended cost of $ 250 in the US without taxes and 280 euros in Europe, but the real prices, of course, will be much higher.

You can also note a rather funny advertising campaign for the RTX 3050. Nvidia has added the map to the official website, where, among other things, there is such an amusing diagram.

Yes, Nvidia is comparing the RTX 3050 to the GTX 1650 and GTX 1050 with ray tracing enabled. Recall that the last two cards do not support this mode, and the meaning of such a comparison is not very clear. Perhaps the company wanted to show that the new cheap video card is better than the old ones, not only in general, but also in such a context.
