The USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF) has published new specifications for USB4 v2.0. As expected, the standard will be able to provide data transfer rates up to 80 Gb / s in both directions. This is twice as much as the first version of USB4 and Thunderbolt 4.

Speeds up to 80Gbps are available on the new active USB Type-C cables. The existing passive ones will only be able to provide 40 Gbps. At the same time, it is possible to transfer data at speeds up to 120 Gb / s in one direction. In the other, it will be up to 40 Gb / s. That is, the total throughput in both directions is a maximum of 160 Gb / s. Finally, the possibility of data transfer at speeds up to 20 Gb / s within the USB 3.2 standard is declared.

Declared full backwards compatibility with the first version of USB4, USB 3.2 and USB 2.0. Also, the new standard supports DisplayPort 2.1, which makes it possible to output 4K video at up to 240 Hz or 10K at 60 Hz. In addition, power for the display can also be transmitted via the same cable – support for up to 240 W of power is declared. You can even power your laptop from the monitor.

The first solutions with USB4 v2.0 support are expected in 2023, but there is no exact date yet.

Intel explained where it will take many billions of dollars to build a new plant in the US

Intel explained where it will take many billions of dollars

Intel, as you know, plans to build new factories in the US, like a number of other semiconductor giants. However, such projects require huge costs.

Intel said the Arizona factory would cost $30 billion to build, but the company would not finance the entire project itself.

Intel explained where it will take many billions of dollars to build a new plant in the US

Back in August, Intel entered into an agreement with the Canadian company Brookfield Asset Management, with which together it will finance the construction of the plant. Those same 30 billion dollars in this case will be divided almost equally. Intel said that a similar approach will be applied in future projects. Such a decision, along with subsidies, will allow reaching the same level of costs as in the case of building a factory in Asia.

Intel said that the market already felt a high level of interest in such projects, so the company will have the opportunity to attract both old and new partners in the future. The company also notes that Europe is also going to pass laws that will allow companies to receive subsidies and build new factories in this region.

GeForce GTX 1060 finally retires. GTX 1650 tops Steam stats, though it depends how you count it

GeForce GTX 1060 finally retires GTX 1650 tops Steam stats

The Steam stats have been updated, and there are tangible changes again.

GeForce GTX 1060 finally retires.  GTX 1650 tops Steam stats, though it depends how you count it

The GeForce GTX 1650 knocked the GTX 1060 off its pedestal in one big leap to become the most popular 3D gaming card… if you just look at the table.

Recall that with the release of the RTX 30 line in Steam statistics, mobile and desktop cards of this generation began to be displayed separately, while before that they were all displayed together under one name. Thus, the GTX 1650 takes 6.27%, and the RTX 3060, if you add the mobile and desktop versions, takes 8.04%, so the RTX 3060 is the most popular video card among Steam gamers, and will probably remain so for more for a very long time.

Returning to the castling in the table, the GTX 1060 has been in first place for the last couple of years, if not more, but this card has not been on sale for a long time, and the GTX 1650 is still available. In just one month, the newer card gained 0.66 percentage points while the GTX 1060 lost 1.85 percentage points for some reason. By the way, the RTX 2060 also sank very strongly (by 1.46 p.p.), and the share of the desktop RTX 3060 fell by 2.06 p.p., which is very strange.

In terms of processors, AMD’s share jumped 3.88 percentage points over the month to 32.87%. The most popular on Steam are six-core CPUs with a share of 33.52%, the share of processors with four cores is 30.07%, and eight-core processors occupy 19.19%.

Over 60 reviews have already been published for all versions, including 37 articles for the PlayStation 5, which received 76 points out of 100 possible. The PC and Xbox versions received 75 points each.

Below are quotes from reviews of various publications:

The Callisto Protocol is the true sequel to Dead Space that we never had, and Glen Scofield had to return to the horror genre.

Jeux Actu (90/100)

The Callisto Protocol gave me nightmares. This is the best horror game of the year and a bright new contender in the survival horror genre.

Gfinity (90/100)

The Callisto Protocol, for all its tension, cannot hide the horrors within.

Wcftech (72/100)

Bloody and grim, The Callisto Protocol doesn’t go against the horror formula, but instead uses all of its beats and clichés to tell a dark sci-fi story laced with menace.

PC Gamer (79/100)

A fantastic looking game that builds a great sci-fi world only to destroy it with nasty combat missions.
