The authorities and the population of the Norwegian city of Sortland have started a fight with a local mining company because of the noise it makes.

In response to the claims, Kjetil Hove Pettersen, CEO of Norwegian mining farm KryptoVault, revealed that Bitcoin miners in Sortland are using renewable energy and even using the generated heat to dry wood and algae, helping local businesses.

The head of the company, Kjetil Hove Pettersen, accused the media of promoting the protest.

“Usually negative voices get the most media attention, but that doesn’t represent all local opinions,” he said.

Grid owners are happy to partner with miners as they help balance consumption, Pettersen said. However, “in the current climate, there is a political and social cost to speaking out about it,” he added.

“Narratives that we are stifling other industries because we consume (skeptics say waste) so much energy are not true. Sometimes we are accused of inflating energy prices. This is also not true, ”said Pettersen.

The head of KryptoVault listed the benefits of developing mining in Northern Norway: creating new jobs, replenishing the state treasury through taxes and reducing overall network fees for consumers. Pettersen acknowledged that the mining industry still has a lot of work to do to dispel the myths and misconceptions that cryptocurrency mining is harmful to the environment.

The story for the northern country is not new. Back in 2018, people in Norway brought similar accusations against KryptoVault for violating noise levels. It got to the point that one of the residents threatened to blow up the mining center so that silence would reign in the city again.

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.

The Radeon RX 6800 XT can be made as fast

The GeForce RTX 40 graphics cards are already presented and will soon begin to hit the market, and the Radeon RX 7000 will also be released towards the end of the year. But is it worth buying new ones if you can get by with the RX 6000 line, significantly speeding it up?

The Radeon RX 6800 XT can be made as fast as the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.  RMP application introduced

Renowned developer and enthusiast Yuri Bubliy (1usmus) created the Radeon Monster Profile (RMP) application, which allows you to significantly increase the performance of current generation AMD adapters. From the name it is clear that in fact we are talking about overclocking profiles, but not everything is so simple. The author describes his brainchild as a combination of unique settings and voltage parameters. Thanks to RMP, the performance of RX 6000 cards can be significantly improved.

As you can see, for example, Yuri took the RX 6800 XT, the core frequency of which, thanks to the settings, increased by 300 MHz, which provides an increase of 11-13% and allows this card to bypass the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti at least in 3DMark, which even now is almost twice as expensive. At the same time, the profiles are designed in such a way that the operating voltage is reduced by 6%, which allows you not to worry about excessive heating.

The application is expected later this year.
