Samsung Electronics plans to unveil the Odyssey Neo G8 gaming monitor at CES 2022. It is based on a concave 32-inch LCD panel with 4K resolution (3840 x 2160 pixels). The curvature of the panel is 1000R, and the backlighting is made on miniature Quantum Mini LEDs. They are 40 times smaller than the existing ones, and the word Quantum speaks of the use of Samsung’s patented Quantum Matrix image quality control technology.

The maximum screen brightness is 2000 cd / m22… The brightness level is specified as a 12-bit number, which gives 4096 values. The contrast ratio is stated to be 1,000,000: 1.

The monitor is equipped with two HDMI 2.1 inputs and one DisplayPort 1.4. A handy feature is Auto Source Switch +, which automatically detects when a source is on and switches the monitor to it.

The old GeForce RTX 3060 will still fight. Nvidia is going to reduce the price of this video card and extend its lifespan to combat AMD

Nvidia will extend the life of the GeForce RTX 3060 video card. Reportedly, this adapter will continue to be in service to better deal with AMD’s new products.

created by DALL-E

IT Home resource says that the RTX 3060 will not be discontinued anytime soon. It will have to compete with the Radeon RX 6750 GRE. The latter was released in China at a price of 2200 yuan, that is, about $310, while the RTX 3060 in China costs about $280. At the same time, the AMD card is noticeably more productive, so, as expected, the RTX 3060 may become a little cheaper. True, in this case, Nvidia will create two problems for itself at once: reducing the price of the RTX 3060 will lead to the fact that it will be more attractive and the RTX 3050, which will cost quite a bit less, and at the same time the RTX 4060, which, although a little faster, will already be significantly more expensive than its predecessor . But, apparently, the prospects for good sales pay for all this. Besides, this is still a temporary solution.

Let us remind you that the RTX 3060 leads the Steam statistics, occupying almost 10%, and the RTX 4060 is still far from the success of its predecessor.

Processors have become too multi-core. Default Linux Arm 64-bit core kernel build can’t handle a pair of 192-core Ampere CPUs

Processors have become too multi core Default Linux Arm 64 bit core

While modern x86-compatible processors, thanks to AMD, have reached the mark of 128 cores per CPU, processors based on the Arm architecture have long since crossed this mark, and this has become a problem. As it turns out, the Linux operating system is not yet ready for this.

The question was raised by Ampere, which released its 192-core CPUs on Arm. The problem is that two such processors in one system means 384 cores, and today the 64-bit main Linux Arm kernel build only supports up to 256 cores. To solve this problem, Ampere itself introduced a patch that proposes to increase the Linux kernel limit to 512 cores using the “CPUMASK_OFFSTACK” method. In fact, support can be increased to 8192 cores at once, but the limit of 512 was chosen for the sake of economy, since support for each CPU core adds about 8 KB to the size of the kernel image.

It is reported that without patches, support for more than 256 kernels in Linux will not appear until next year, when Linux 6.8 is released.

That is, you can even connect a GeForce RTX 4090 to Raspberry Pi 5? An enthusiast connected a discrete video card to a single-board PC

That is you can even connect a GeForce RTX 4090

You can connect a full desktop discrete graphics card to a Raspberry Pi 5 single board computer for $60.

That is, you can even connect a GeForce RTX 4090 to Raspberry Pi 5?  An enthusiast connected a discrete video card to a single-board PC

This is exactly what channel author Jeff Geerling implemented by connecting a Radeon RX 460 adapter to his Pi 5. And it all worked. True, achieving this is not so easy.

Of course, the Raspberry Pi 5 itself does not have a PCIe slot, and indeed there are no classic slots at all. But since this is a Raspberry Pi, its capabilities can be expanded with various modules, adapters, and other things.

To connect the video card, the author of the project used the uPCity module, which is not yet commercially available, but will appear in time. In addition, of course, the card needed to implement additional power.

It’s difficult to say whether someone needs such a solution for practical purposes, since the Raspberry Pi 5 was created for experiments, but the ability to connect a discrete video card in itself is already a big plus.
