The network has new data about the future A16 Bionic processor for the iPhone 14 Pro/Pro Max. It is alleged that the novelty will receive a powerful graphics accelerator, which will be up to 30% faster compared to the A15 Bionic. This will make the top smartphones of the future lineup much better at video games.
There are no exact specifications yet, but it is claimed that the new generation SoC will be faster and more efficient than current models. The processor part of the A16 will receive 6 cores – 2 high-performance and 4 energy efficient. The new system-on-a-chip will be manufactured using TSMC’s 4nm process and will feature over 20 billion transistors.
The A16 Bionic will also be paired with faster LPDDR5x memory that consumes less power, which should improve the performance of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max despite having a more powerful chip.
At the same time, the base models of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will use the old LPDDR4x RAM. They also promised to use an overclocked version of the A15 Bionic with a 5-core graphics subsystem. The current iPhone 13 models have only 4 graphics cores.
Earlier it was reported that only the Pro / Pro Max models will have 6GB of RAM.
Sony is preparing its own launcher for PC games? PlayStation PC Launcher reference found in Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered
Sony has made it as easy as possible for PC games to enter the market by making them available on Steam and the Epic Games Store. However, perhaps in the future it will have a layer launcher.
A link to the PlayStation PC Launcher was found in the files of Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, which was released on PC just the other day. Now the link does not lead anywhere, but at least it is there, as is the name of the launcher. In addition, references to PSNAccountLinked and PSNLinkingEntitlements were also found there, which may hint that in the future PlayStation games on PC will require a PSN account. Besides, such rumors have been circulating for a long time.
Given that Ubisoft, Rockstar and Activision Blizzard have their own launchers, it’s possible that Sony wants to join them. At the same time, the presence of a launcher does not mean that games will not be available on third-party platforms.
Microsoft admits: Sony PlayStation 4 sold much better than Xbox One
Microsoft has finally admitted that sales of Xbox One consoles were significantly lower than those of a competitor.
At one time, Microsoft stopped sharing data on the number of consoles sold, and we could only be guided by third-party sources. Now the company also did not disclose how many Xbox One in all its versions were sold during the life of the console, but admitted that the PlayStation 4 was more successful.
Sony has surpassed Microsoft in terms of console sales and installed base, selling more than twice as much as the last generation Xbox.
Given that the PS4 sold over 117 million units, the Xbox One sold less than 58.5 million. This is in good agreement with the calculations of various sources, which spoke of 51 million Xbox One.
The famous PlayStation exclusive came to PC with excellent ratings. This is the second most popular project after God of War
Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered was released on PC on August 12th and received a Metacritic score of 87 out of 100. The original game for the PlayStation 4 scored the same amount at one time.
Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered hit 65,000 concurrent players on Steam in its opening weekend, falling short of God of War’s record of nearly 75,000 players. By comparison, Horizon Zero Dawn, the first major PlayStation title to hit Steam, drew 56,557 people at the same time.
The PC version of Marvel’s Spider-Man was perfectly ported by Nixxes Software, which Sony Interactive Entertainment acquired last year. She already has over 9,000 reviews on Steam, 96% of which are positive.
Sony’s new PC strategy is clearly generating good returns for the company. Earlier this year, the company said it had sold 33 million units of its Marvel’s Spider-Man series to date, a number expected to continue to rise in the coming months.
In 10 years, there will be about 70,000 satellites in Earth orbit.
