Elon Musk has repeatedly said that few children are being born now and this could be a big problem – for the United States. But in many other regions (mainly Asian) there are no problems with fertility, and in general it is growing on the planet. Already this year, the world’s population will exceed the mark of 8 billion.

On November 15, the world's population will exceed 8 billion people.

No one knows exactly when the 8 billionth inhabitant of the Earth will be born, but the UN decided to consider November 15 as a conditional date for this event.

I must say that after the Second World War, in the second half of the last century, the world’s population began to grow rapidly. If at the beginning of the last century about 1.65 billion people lived on Earth, and in the 60s a mark of three billion was taken, then over the past 50-60 years the population has grown by 5 billion people. On average, a billion per decade. Well, by the middle of this century, while maintaining the current growth rate, there will already be 10 billion people on Earth. However, by that time, the colonization of Mars will already (perhaps) begin, so that the Earth will not have to take the rap alone.

Will the new Intel processors really become much more expensive? Prices for new items lit up a few hours before the announcement

Will the new Intel processors really become much more

Intel Raptor Lake processors will be unveiled in a few hours, but now we have the opportunity to look at prices that may be in line with the recommended ones.

Will the new Intel processors really become much more expensive?  Prices for new items lit up a few hours before the announcement

The fact is that the new items were lit up in the NewEgg store, and marked as recently released. Given the size and status of this network, it is possible that the prices listed there now correspond to those that Intel itself will reveal in a few hours.

And if so, then the same price increase that the company warned about earlier will take place.

  • Core i9-13900K – $660 ($70 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i9-13900KF – $630 ($65 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i7-13700K – $450 ($40 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i7-13700KF – $430 ($45 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i5-13600K – $330 ($40 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i5-13600KF – $310 ($45 more than its predecessor)

Thus, we will get a rise in price by 10-15%. If we talk about competition with AMD, then the Ryzen 5 7600X at a price of $300 is 10% cheaper than the Core i5-13600K, the Ryzen 7 7700X at a price of $400 is more than 10% cheaper than the Core i7-13700K, and the Core i9-13900K at a price of $630 is significantly more expensive than the 12-core Ryzen 9 7900X, but significantly cheaper than the top-end Ryzen 9 7950X. We wrote about the performance of new AMD products yesterday.

10 year old Samsung Galaxy Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 received

Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 smartphones received Android 13, but not official – as part of the LineageOS project and LineageOS 20 firmware.

10-year-old Samsung Galaxy Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 received Android 13. True, unofficial

We are talking about an early assembly of LineageOS 20, in which a number of functions do not work: NFC, Bluetooth sound transmission during a call, memory card. Known issues are expected to be fixed as the firmware is updated.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 are ten years old, and you should not expect older devices running the latest Android 13 to run smoothly. Both smartphones had flagship specs for their time, but the 1GB and 2GB of RAM in the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 might not be enough for a full system at the moment.

Recall that the basic versions of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 were running Android 4.0.4 and 4.1.1, respectively. Android 4.3 and 4.4.4, respectively, were released as the final software versions for these smartphones.
