Not only processors and video cards are in short supply, but also network adapters, audio chips and even power adapters.
Lenovo introduced several new laptop products in China today. At the same time, a company spokesman reported unhappy news: deliveries of new products are delayed due to a total shortage of … everything.
The picture shows the very latest Lenovo products. But not all of them will go on sale in large quantities due to the total shortage of components.
The shortage of central processing units and dGPUs (since we are talking about laptops) has been talked about for a long time, but, according to Lenovo Product Director Lin Lin (Lin Lin), other components – network adapters and audio chips – are also in short supply. And even power adapters! A Lenovo spokesman confirmed that Realtek’s audio components (that is, the well-known audio chips that are used in most motherboards for both regular PCs and laptops) now stretch to 32 weeks, although the usual delivery time is about 25 weeks. It should be assumed that the story is the same with AC adapters and power adapters.
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.

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.
