The mobile first-person shooter Camp Guard was used as a demonstrator. This game has about 2 thousand models and hundreds of textures. Both companies have optimized the drivers so that the system can support ray tracing and high frame rates. An example of how the system works can be seen in the video below.

In addition to ray tracing, Variable Rate Shading technology was also used, which makes the gameplay smoother.

At the same time, everything has been tested at a resolution of 720p at 60 FPS. The video showed lighting and shadows from objects, as well as dynamic transparent water with correct light refraction.

It is not yet clear which games and when will receive support for this technology, however, most likely, by the time the first smartphones on Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 are released, several projects will already be available.

Moto X40 and Honor 80 are expected among the first models.

Music from NFT tracks plays just like any other audio files.

“Winamp has always been about accessibility and innovation, and today we are proud to launch the very first standalone player that reads NFT audio and other existing formats,” Winamp CEO Alexander Saboundjian wrote in the official release.

The latest version of Winamp allows music lovers to link their MetaMask cryptocurrency wallet through the Brave, Chrome or Firefox browser with Winamp. Users can then connect their favorite track as an NFT file.

In addition to audio, Winamp also supports video files based on the ERC-721 and ERC-1155 standards. So far, the novelty is supported only on the Windows operating network, but in 2023 the company plans to expand the line to other ecosystems.

In an upcoming update in early 2023, the Winamp developers plan to implement a dedicated service for artists and users. It is expected that direct sale of tokens will become available, as well as the organization of concerts through the services of the player. It is expected that the update will immediately be cross-platform.

Winamp is one of the oldest PC music players, created in 1997 by Nullsoft.

The Twitter Blue subscription will cost 7 but not on

The media reported that Twitter decided to change the price of the Blue subscription. It will cost $7, but you will have to pay $11 in the App Store right away to offset the 30% commission that Apple takes. Such a commission is valid for the first year, then it drops to 15%. It is possible that the subscription price will also drop in the coming December.

Earlier, Elon Musk has already spoken out against Apple for such a high commission and said that the corporation threatened to remove Twitter from the App Store. Later, after meeting with Apple CEO Tim Cook, Mac said there were no such threats. In addition, earlier the businessman postponed the launch of a paid subscription, fearing the same high commission.

Thus, when paying through the web version, the price will be significantly lower, although it is not yet clear whether these are just plans for the future or a ready-made scenario.

Earlier it was reported that after Musk bought it on Twitter, many employees of Tesla and The Boring Company, as well as some of the billionaire’s relatives, went to work.

This screen should be on all phones Reviews of Realme

The journalists of the Gizmochina resource most of all praise the new screen, arguing that this should be in every smartphone. Recall, the new Realme is equipped with a curved OLED display with a very narrow frame. But it is also one of the first devices on the market that supports PWM at a frequency of 2160 Hz. Thanks to this, the use of a smartphone should not cause discomfort for people who are sensitive to flicker.

Our colleagues also note a low weight of 180 g, but Realme achieved it quite simply: both the case frame and the back cover are made of plastic.

The performance of the smartphone is very high, as it has a new Dimensity 1080 SoC, which is slightly faster than the Dimensity 920.

As for the rest, the novelty has a decent 108-megapixel camera, a lot of memory, excellent autonomy and good software (Android 13 with Realme UI 4 shell).
