PsiQuantum, a pioneer in photonic quantum computing, announced a partnership with semiconductor contract manufacturing company Globalfoundries. The subject of cooperation is the creation by 2025 of a photonic quantum computer of 1 million qubits.
PsiQuantum was founded in 2016 by four British university physicists who moved to California and were able to raise $ 215 million in funding for their developments. The company’s first quantum computer was named Q-1.
According to PsiQuantum, the capabilities of Globalfoundries factories in the US and Germany are being used to create integrated photonic microcircuits.
“We are now at a stage where we have overcome critical obstacles to building a quantum computer with a million qubits, the scale required for all known useful commercial applications,” says Jeremy O’Brien, General Manager director of PsiQuantum and professor at the University of Bristol.
PsiQuantum’s choice of photonics allowed quantum computing to be performed at room temperature, which is a significant advantage over electronic systems requiring ultra-low temperatures.
The blogger built a gaming computer into the toilet to play Counter-Strike: Global Offensive on it
Modern gaming systems allow you to run games not only at home, but also on the street. This is implemented by powerful gaming laptops, portable consoles and smartphones. However, enthusiasts sometimes create original solutions that no company has come up with.
A blogger named Basically Homeless recently turned his own toilet into a gaming computer, and its basic functionality was not violated. To do this, he built a backlit game system into a porcelain toilet bowl, and built a cooling fan into the top cover.
The configuration uses an Intel Core i7-12700 processor, a Z690I Unify mini-ITX motherboard, 64GB of G.Skill Trident Z5 RAM, and an Asus-made Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card. An MSI Optix monitor with a frequency of 240 Hz was placed on the wall. On this system, the author was able to play Counter-Strike: Global Offensive on a computer.
“Now I know more about plumbing than I ever thought I knew.“, – the author specified.
And earlier, another blogger leaked the console version of STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl to the network.
The consumer PC is on a whole new level. New generation Mac Pro on SoC M2 Extreme may be presented at the end of the year
The new Mac Pro on the M2 Extreme platform may be presented before the end of this year.
Journalist and insider Mark Gurman supplemented his data regarding this PC. He says that Apple may announce the Mac Pro at the end of this year, but it will be available for sale early next year.
Moreover, the new Mac Pro was allegedly ready a few months ago, and Apple could have released it with a platform from the M1 line, but decided to postpone the launch until the SoC M2 Extreme is ready.
What will be the M2 Extreme is not yet clear, since it has no analogues in the M1 line. But earlier there were rumors of 40 CPU cores and 128 GPU cores, which is just twice as much as the M1 Ultra, so that’s exactly what the new Apple platform could be. Given the performance of the M1 Ultra, one can only imagine how impressive the capabilities of the new Mac Pro will be.
But what will be the new Mac Pro itself, while there are not even rumors. Considering the transition to Apple Silicon, the new product may lose a lot in the ability to update or change the configuration by the users themselves.
The last “enemy” PC in Apple’s lineup will soon be replaced. The new Mac Pro will receive SoC M2 Extreme
The last PC in Apple’s range will move to the Apple Silicon platform in the foreseeable future.
Journalist and insider Mark Gurman says Apple is working on the M2 Extreme SoC that will power the all-new Mac Pro. If we talk about the current line of Apple PCs, this is the only model left on the Intel CPU. You can also remember the iMac Pro, but now Apple does not sell it at all, and it is unclear whether this model will ever return in a new form.
Two platforms are being prepared for the new Mac Pro: M2 Ultra and M2 Extreme. Whether the M2 Extreme will be two M2 Ultras combined is still unclear, but the M1 Ultra is two M1 Maxs combined. In any case, of the new SoCs, Apple has only M2 so far.
If you recall the early data, then the Mac Pro was credited with a platform with 40 processor cores and 128 GPU cores. This is just twice as much as the M1 Ultra.
