Samsung Electronics today announced the construction of a new semiconductor manufacturing facility in Taylor, Texas. According to the South Korean giant, the $ 17 billion investment in the US “will help stimulate the production of advanced logic semiconductor solutions that fuel next-generation innovation and technology.”

The new venture will produce advanced process technology chips for applications such as mobile communications, 5G, high performance computing and artificial intelligence.

The laying of the foundation is planned for the first half of 2022, and the date for putting the facility into operation is the second half of 2024. The Taylor site will cover over 5 million square meters. It is expected to become a key among Samsung’s global semiconductor manufacturing sites, alongside its newest production line in Pyeongtaek, South Korea.

Taking into account the above amount, Samsung’s total investment in the United States since the start of operations in the country in 1978 will exceed $ 47 billion. Samsung currently employs over 20,000 people in the United States.

Samsung has postponed the launch and even the start of the development process of the new flagship Galaxy Tab S9 tablets.

The source says that the company originally planned to start development in December, but now it has been postponed until next year. That is, new models will not be able to come out at the beginning of 2023. Recall that the Galaxy Tab S8 line debuted in February.

When exactly the new tablets will be released is unknown. Perhaps they will be presented at the end of August at the Unpacked event, where new folding smartphones are usually announced.

Changes in Samsung’s plans are due to the situation in the market. In particular, falling demand for mobile devices and PCs.

The decline in demand is also expected to disrupt Samsung’s plans to manufacture and ship tablets this year. Late last year, the company set a target of 400,000 S8 Ultra models, 900,000 S8 Plus models, and 1.2 million base Tab S8 models.

The iPhone 14 Pro Max performed great but still fell

DxOMark specialists tested the power subsystem of the iPhone 14 Pro Max.

The device earned 133 points, taking 15th place in the overall rating. For comparison, the iPhone 13 Pro Max scores 136 points.

Considering that the iPhone 13 Pro Max easily put any flagship of last year on the shoulder blades, the iPhone 14 Pro Max is unlikely to disappoint anyone with its autonomy.

If you look at the results in more detail, then there is some noticeable difference just in points for autonomy: 151 points for the new model versus 156 points for the previous model. In more familiar terms, this is 2 days 17 hours and 2 days 20 hours of work in the source test. At the same time, the devices are charged almost identically.

It looks like there are more and more games with high PC requirements right before our eyes.

A Plague Tale: Requiem, out October 18th, requires a GeForce RTX 3070 or Radeon RX 6800 XT in Full HD only!

GeForce RTX 3070 or Radeon RX 6800 XT just to run the game in Full HD.  The recommended requirements for A Plague Tale: Requiem are amazingly high.

Such requirements are specified for 1080p and 60 fps at maximum graphics quality settings. What kind of PC, according to the developers, should be to launch the project in 4K at 60 fps, one can only guess. This is probably where the GeForce RTX 4090, which comes out a few days before the launch of the game, comes in handy. Moreover, A Plague Tale: Requiem just supports DLSS 3.

As for the rest of the requirements, the recommended ones are a Core i7-8700K or Ryzen 5 3600 CPU and 16 GB of RAM. The minimum ones (to run in Full HD at 30 fps and the minimum graphics quality settings) indicate the Core i5-4690K and AMD FX-8350, and the video cards are suitable for the GeForce GTX 970 and Radeon RX 590.

It is always worth remembering that very often system requirements are indicated with a very large margin, and in practice, games work without difficulty on significantly less productive PCs. However, in this case, the requirements are really amazing. For comparison, Cyberpunk 2077 has almost identical minimum requirements to those of A Plague Tale: Requiem, but only the GTX 1660 Super and RX 590 appear in the recommended ones, but not the RX 6800 XT.

Recall that yesterday we also learned the system requirements of the Dead Space remake, which also turned out to be surprisingly high.
