ASRock has unveiled its Radeon RX 6600 XT graphics cards, including what appears to be the first and so far only Mini-ITX model in the Radeon RX 6000 line.

The Challenger ITX model stands out for its compact dimensions. There are no new products on the company’s website yet, but the photos make it clear that the card takes up only two expansion slots, and the length is about 170 mm. In this form factor, it will be a very productive video card.

Computer in “credit card” format. Qualcomm develops Qompute Card concept despite Intel’s failure

Published

on

Qualcomm is reportedly developing a concept called the Qompute Card.

It involves placing all the basic elements of a PC on one small board. This will allow you to easily and quickly update the configuration of such a PC or use such cards by one user in different places on different PCs. Also, a similar solution can find application in household appliances.

The concept is not new at all. Back in 2017, a similar idea for the Intel Compute Card was presented, but the company abandoned it two years later, since it did not receive any distribution in the market.

Qualcomm as a whole makes a very similar decision, except that the heart of such cards will be SoCs based on the Arm architecture. The Qompute Card will also contain the motherboard, RAM and flash memory. That is, all the main elements of the finished device. At the same time, Qualcomm cards may well be significantly smaller than Intel Compute Card, if only because of the different power consumption of SoC Snapdragon and conventional Intel CPUs.

Qompute Card are aimed specifically at computers and laptops. At least the SoC Snapdragon 7c + Gen 3 presented the other day will also be offered as part of the cards. The source adds that Qualcomm is testing configurations for both Windows Arm and Chrome OS. How successful this version will turn out to be, time will tell. So far, all such modularity initiatives have not met with success.

No, GeForce RTX 2060 12GB Founders Edition will not be available at MSRP. The company will not release a reference version of the novelty

The 12GB GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card that Nvidia unveiled the other day will not be available in the Founders Edition.

Initially, the company indicated such a version on its website, but removed it from the description and confirmed to sources that the new product would not be released in such a version.

Thus, the updated RTX 2060 will be available exclusively in non-reference variants. In the current situation, this is a disadvantage, since Founders Edition cards can at least occasionally be bought at the recommended price directly on the Nvidia website or from its partners. Now it turns out that all RTX 2060s in retail will come with huge markups. By the way, we still don’t know the official price for the updated map.
