OnePlus 9 could have been released without a box at all – in a blister pack

Published

The OnePlus 9 series smartphones come in a new retail box that is slightly longer than previous smartphones in the series. Although the company also considered an alternative option in which the smartphone could be released in a blister pack.

This information was published by the CEO of OnePlus Pete Lau on his Twitter page. These packages sell USB drives, batteries and various accessories.

Inside is only the smartphone itself without a charger and cable, the package lists the main characteristics of the device, such as a single-chip Snapdragon 888 system, a Hasselblad camera, a 65-watt charger and a 120-hertz screen.

Pete Lau added that the company is not giving up on the “stylish red box”, but believes that such a package would be quite fun. And what do you think?

More than 16 hours of continuous work – this is the autonomy of the new MacBook Pro 13 on M2

More than 16 hours of continuous work this is

Apple laptops, thanks to Apple Silicon processors, stand out for their incredible autonomy. The latest MacBook Pro 13 based on the Apple M2 SoC is no exception.

More than 16 hours of continuous work - this is the autonomy of the new MacBook Pro 13 on M2

The Verge journalist decided to check how long the new MacBook Pro will last in the mode of a full-fledged working system, when there is no goal to squeeze the maximum autonomy out of the PC.

The test started at 20:00. The author launched a browser with a dozen tabs, Spotify and set the brightness to 50%. Later on, the load on the PC increased as additional applications were launched, including Google Docs, After Effects, Instagram, Swift Playgrounds 4 game, PugetBench, Lightroom and so on. It is also worth noting that from 2:13 to 8:15, while the author was sleeping, YouTube was running on the laptop.

As a result, around 12:30 the laptop still turned off. He worked 16 hours and 30 minutes. The load at the same time quite corresponded to some conditionally average. If limited, for example, to the browser and typing, the laptop will probably last even longer.

Are the recommended prices for modern video cards too high? Calculated how adapters are priced based on performance

Are the recommended prices for modern video cards too high

Current generation video cards have been heavily overpriced almost all the time due to scarcity and demand from miners. Now the prices are getting back to normal, but how normal are the prices that are recommended? The source decided to evaluate how fair these prices are in terms of performance.

The source took the GeForce RTX 3070 as a conditional standard, which, according to our colleagues, is fairly priced if we take 4K resolution.

As you can see, there is an even more profitable graphics card – GeForce RTX 3060 Ti. That is, it offers more than its price of $400. As for the rest of Nvidia’s cards, most of them have not gone far from the standard, offering 90-94% price match. But all high cards are heavily overvalued. The same GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, according to such calculations, should cost only $ 814, and not $ 2,000 at all.

As far as AMD cards are concerned, only the Radeon RX 6800 and 6800 XT can be distinguished here, which are very close to 100%. Also, the Radeon RX 6700 XT has a rate of 92%. The rest of the cards are significantly more overpriced, although no model falls short of the RTX 3090 Ti in this indicator, simply because even the RX 6950 XT is almost half the price.

It is worth mentioning separately that the source only evaluated performance in games, so all calculations are rather arbitrary. They do not take into account the non-gaming capabilities of video cards, the same huge amount of memory in top GeForces, the complexity of GPU and PCB production, and so on.

Incredible CPU performance or super powerful iGPU. Ryzen 7000 mobile processor details revealed

Incredible CPU performance or super powerful iGPU Ryzen 7000 mobile

The new generation of mobile Ryzen 7000 processors will be much more impressive than their predecessors than the desktop ones, according to recent data.

Incredible CPU performance or super powerful iGPU.  Ryzen 7000 mobile processor details revealed

We are talking about a line of APUs called Dragon Range. Processors in this line will be labeled as Ryzen 70000HX. Now AMD also has such APUs, but they are not much different from other mobile high-end models. Dragon Range will be very different.

As you can see, the source says that within this line, AMD will finally launch processors with more than eight cores in the mobile segment. More specifically, the Ryzen 9 7980HX will have 16 cores, the Ryzen 9 7900HX will have 12 cores, the Ryzen 7 7800HX will have 8 cores, and the Ryzen 5 7600HX will have 6 cores. That is, these APUs will be as similar as possible to desktop ones. True, AMD’s Ryzen mobile processors have always had a monolithic crystal, and that is why they were maximum eight-core. It turns out that Dragon Range will be chiplet. Perhaps, physically, these will be the same desktop APUs, only with reduced power limits. For example, the source indicates the maximum frequencies in the range of 4.8-5.0 GHz or slightly higher. In addition, such APUs will receive iGPUs with 256 stream processors.

AMD will also have a Phoenix line with Ryzen 7000HS processors. These APUs will be more familiar with six to eight cores. The Ryzen 9 7980HS, Ryzen 9 7900HS, and Ryzen 7 7800HS will each have eight cores, while the Ryzen 5 7600HS will have six. In this case, the former will receive an iGPU with 1536 stream processors, and the latter will have a core with 768 stream processors.

The older iGPU, as previously stated and according to the source, will operate at frequencies of 2.6-3.0 GHz, which will provide incredible performance for the integrated graphics core – 9.2 TFLOPS. This could be the level of the mobile GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q.

Despite the smaller number of processor cores, such APUs can also be chiplet-based. The source believes that there will be three crystals: a processor, an iGPU, and some kind of chiplet associated with the memory subsystem. Perhaps it will be Infinity Cache memory.
