Microsoft is working on a new modular version of Windows with AI. It will be similar to Android and MacOS
Microsoft is working on a new version of Windows that will be a modular and customizable version of the OS. The project is called CorePC and is designed to support various form factors.
This is not the first attempt to create a modular OS. Previously, there was Windows Core OS, which also appeared under the name Windows 10X. This system was supposed to be an updated OS without deprecated features and with support for UWP applications. However, she was never released.
As for CorePC, its main feature will be the separation of the system itself, user data and other files. In the current version of Windows, all of this information resides on a single system partition, while CorePC will support multiple partitions. This will speed up system updates, speed up resets, and improve security by making critical sections read-only. A similar approach is used in iPadOS and Android.
Also CorePC will allow Microsoft to make Windows a full-fledged competitor to Chrome OS in terms of size, performance and capabilities.
In addition, a version of the OS, codenamed Neon, is expected within CorePC, which maintains compatibility with legacy applications. Looks like it’s about win32 programs. Finally, a version without backwards compatibility is expected, but with built-in AI and optimization for hardware. This is similar to MacOS with M-series processors. This will allow you to create laptops and PCs that are just as fast and energy efficient.
Of course, these are only plans so far, although, perhaps, development is already underway in the bowels of the company. In any case, the release is still far away, and the situation may change more than once.
Turning on the display of seconds in the Windows 11 system clock reduces the autonomy of laptops
Microsoft recently released an update to Windows 11, which contains a number of new features and functionality. Including the ability to enable the display of seconds on the clock in the tray. At the same time, which is very unexpected, the inclusion of this function, according to Microsoft itself, increases power consumption and, as a result, reduces the autonomy of mobile PCs. The authors of the Neowin portal decided to check if this is really the case. It turned out that this is indeed the case.
The experiment showed that the display of seconds reduces the autonomy of the test laptop by about 1.9%. This is a very minor difference, but the very fact that it exists is interesting. It is also worth noting that the testing format assumed the operation of a laptop without any load, that is, the PC simply stood with the sleep mode turned off and simply gradually discharged.
The experiment with Windows 10 showed an almost identical result, so it’s not about Windows 11 at all. The source does not say what are the reasons for this behavior of the OS.
RTX isn’t just for gaming. Nvidia and Microsoft Show What Benefits Users Will Get With Windows First Adapters
Microsoft continues to exploit the theme of generative AI at an accelerated pace and implement such technologies in its products. Now Nvidia has joined in. At the Microsoft Build event, companies showcased a set of improvements to Windows 11 PCs and workstations with Nvidia RTX GPUs.
The importance of this collaboration is that the same tensor cores in Nvidia RTX video cards, which in most cases are only needed to implement DLSS technology in games, will become useful in other areas.
For example, Nvidia graphics cards will enable the acceleration of the Nvidia AI software stack inside the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL), which allows Linux to run directly on Windows 11. Developers will be able to use Windows PCs for all their local AI development needs with support for deep learning frameworks with GPU acceleration in WSL.
However, here you need to understand that these particular functions are likely to be available only for professional Nvidia RTX adapters, and not for GeForce.
However, the latter will not be left out of work. Nvidia promises to introduce a new low-power Max-Q inference for AI-only workloads on RTX GPUs soon. The solution is to optimize the performance of tensor cores in such a way as to keep the power consumption of the video card as low as possible. Simply put, Nvidia is optimizing mobile graphics cards to perform at their best with AI.
The official ChatGPT app for iPhone became available in Kazakhstan, Lithuania and 40 more countries
OpenAI has announced that its official ChatGPT app for iPhone and iPad is now available in over 40 countries around the world. The app originally debuted in the US last week.
Currently the application can be used in Albania, Algeria, Argentina, Azerbaijan, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Croatia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Estonia, France, Germany, Ghana, India, Iraq, Ireland, Israel, Jamaica, Japan , Jordan, Kazakhstan, Korea, Kuwait, Lebanon, Lithuania, Mauritania, Mauritius, Mexico, Morocco, Namibia, Nauru, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Oman, Pakistan, Peru, Poland, Qatar, Slovenia, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and USA.
The ChatGPT app is free to use, but the ChatGPT Plus service costs $19.99 per month. The same price is offered in the web version. ChatGPT Plus ensures high demand availability, faster response times and priority access to new features like GPT-4. The ChatGPT application requires an OpenAI account.
