Nvidia and Intel were in cahoots against AMD? Rumors talk about the conclusion of a relevant deal between the companies last year

Published

Curious news about Intel, Nvidia and AMD appeared on the web today. The source claims that one of the OEMs secretly talked about the fact that last year Nvidia and Intel signed an agreement according to which laptops with Ryzen 4000 processors and Nvidia graphics cards older than RTX 2060 could not appear on the market.

Previously, there were assumptions that the reason for the absence of such laptops is that the mobile Ryzen 4000 has only eight PCIe 3.0 lanes for the video card. If the information of the source is correct, in fact, the reason was different. True, of course, when it comes to such data, it is worthwhile to understand that they may still be erroneous, because these are quite serious accusations.

As you know, the appearance of the mobile Ryzen 5000 was initially paired with the announcement of top-end gaming laptops with the most productive 3D Nvidia cards, while the new AMD APUs still have only eight PCIe 3.0 lanes for the graphics subsystem.

If the information of the source is correct, it is likely that some confirmation will appear on the web in the near future. If not, expect direct denials from Intel and Nvidia.

The youngest version of the Samsung Galaxy S23 will be

Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S23 smartphones will use the latest LPDDR5X RAM and UFS 4.0 flash storage. But not all versions.

The youngest version of the Samsung Galaxy S23 will be worse than all other models and versions of the line.  She'll get an older memory

According to insider Ice Universe, the base model of the Galaxy S23 with 128 GB of flash memory will receive UFS 3.1 flash memory. This is just about the younger model, since the S23 + in the minimum configuration will have 256 GB of flash memory, like the S23 Ultra.

As for such a strange difference, it seems that it is not at all Samsung’s desire to save money. As the insider says, apparently, the company itself simply does not produce UFS 4.0 chips with a capacity of less than 256 GB.

At the same time, there are Kioxia 128 GB UFS 4.0 chips on the market – these are used in Xiaomi 13. However, tests show that such memory is significantly slower than the values ​​\u200b\u200bdeclared for UFS 4.0, which, apparently, Samsung decided to use its UFS memory 3.1 in the base version of the Galaxy S23.

Ice Universe was the first to accurately talk about the new trend for smartphones with waterfall screens, about the bangs in the iPhone X, about the new design of the iPhone 14 and Samsung’s 200-megapixel image sensor

GeForce RTX 4090 can now fit into any case where

The host of the Optimum Tech YouTube channel showed and talked about the new Alphacool product, which allows you to radically reduce the size of the GeForce RTX 4090. This is the Alphacool ES water block, which allows you to abandon the standard bulky cooling system.

GeForce RTX 4090 can now fit into any case where there is at least one free slot.  This makes the Alphacool ES water block possible.

The dimensions of the system are only 210 x 150 mm. In PC space, the GeForce RTX 4090 occupies only one slot with it – such a video card can be installed even in a very compact case designed for a Mini-ITX motherboard.

In tests, the water block performed well: the video card, being connected to a 280 mm radiator, heated up to 57 degrees Celsius in the Furmark stress test, heating in games was 53-54 degrees. True, this is in the conditions of an open stand, in a closed case the temperatures will obviously be higher.

The Alphacool ES for the GeForce RTX 4090 is available now for $166 and comes with a heat spreader plate. True, there is one caveat: the device is only compatible with the reference GeForce RTX 4090, as well as four versions of Inno3D production – X3 OC, iCHILL X3, iCHILL Frostbite and iCHILL Black.
