Sony today officially unveiled the Airpeak S1 drone, which was announced in winter at CES 2021. The novelty turned out to be not cheap: the price is $ 9,000. At the same time, the drone does not have its own camera for video capture, or even a stabilized gimbal for it.

Airpeak S1 is designed for use with Sony mirrorless cameras like A7S III, FX3 or Alpha 1. Gremsy T3 is offered as a gimbal gimbal – and you will have to pay extra for it. Flight autonomy with a camera is only 12 minutes. The drone itself can fly for up to 22 minutes without additional load, but there is little point in such operation.

The developers consider flight stability and wind resistance to be an important feature of the Airpeak S1. According to official figures, the drone remains stable in wind gusts up to 20 m / s (twice as much as the DJI Inspire 2 can afford), and five sets of stereo cameras and an infrared rangefinder are responsible for avoiding obstacles. Experts from the Japan Aerospace Research Agency participated in the fine-tuning of the drone.

The Airpeak S1 is quite fast: it takes 3.5 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 50 km / h. However, this is without the camera installed, and with it the drone will obviously be slower. You can use both the included controller and the Airpeak Flight app for iPhone or iPad (for now), and it even allows you to change the camera and gimbal settings. You can control the drone as one or two. In the second case, one is engaged in flight, the second is in the camera.

In addition to the controller, the Airpeak S1 package includes two sets of blades, two batteries and a charger. Deliveries of the new item are scheduled for the fall, and buyers will also be offered a service contract that will cover repairs from damage from falls.

The performance is 41 MH / s with a consumption of only 66 watts. Nvidia RTX A2000 GPU Shows Mining Efficiency Wonders

Judging by new details that have appeared on the Web, the most affordable Nvidia Ampere graphics card for workstations, the RTX A2000, is perhaps the most efficient 3D accelerator for mining cryptocurrencies, in particular Ethereum.

The Nvidia RTX A2000 is built on a GA106 GPU with 3328 CUDA cores and has 6GB of GDDR6 memory connected to the GPU using a 192-bit bus. Since the TDP is only 70W, the device does not require additional power. It also takes up little space inside the case (or a conventional rig), and only one centrifugal fan is used for cooling.

In general, in terms of design and appearance, you cannot say that the RTX A2000 is great for mining, and yet three such video cards can replace one GeForce RTX 3090, while they will consume less. Optimized for mining RTX A2000 (core frequency raised by 100 MHz, memory – by 1500 MHz) produces 41 MH / s with a consumption of only 66 watts. With a Power Limit of 95% and a fan running at 100%, heating is only 51 ° C.

Nvidia RTX A2000 should go on sale in December, but after such a positive test in mining it will be difficult to buy it – the video card will clearly interest many cryptocurrency miners.

The top discrete Intel Arc graphics card will cost about $ 800, the cost of the model is simpler – about $ 650

The premiere of discrete Intel Arc graphics cards based on the Xe-HPG architecture is expected in the first quarter of next year. There are no comprehensive official details yet, but the company has already given a good price guideline by publishing the conditions of a certain competition, in which two models of Intel Arc 3D cards – Premium and Performance – are the prizes.

A total of 100 prizes will be awarded with Premium graphics cards equivalent to $ 900 each and 200 prizes with Performance graphics cards worth $ 700 each. The price is for a set, which, in addition to the video card itself, includes a subscription to the Xbox Game Pass service for three or six months, as well as branded merchandise.

Subtracting the subscription and merchandise costs from the prize, the Arc Premium 3D card will cost around $ 825 and the Performance 3D card around $ 650. A lot, considering that we are talking, in fact, about the cost price. Given the current deficit, the price can be safely multiplied by one and a half, if we talk about retail. And it turns out that on the store shelf there will not be much difference in price between the same Arc Premium, GeForce RTX 3070 (Ti) and Radeon RX 6700 XT – it is with these models from Nvidia and AMD that the novelty will compete. So what will make users buy an Intel device instead of Nvidia or AMD at roughly the same cost and performance? While this is a big question.

According to the information released, PSG.LGD Dota 2 coach Zhang xiao8 Nina made over two thousand bets on PSG.LGD matches.

The hacker hacked into the account on the website of the Chinese bookmaker, which, presumably, belongs to the trainer of the PSG.LGD Dota 2 roster Zhang Xiao8 Ning. An anonymous post with screenshots appeared on the Zhihu portal.

The screenshots posted by the hacker prove that xiao8 was betting on PSG.LGD. In the screenshots, you can see the same username as in the screenshots previously posted by ex-wife Nina.

The hacker said that between May 2019 and December 2020, the mentor of the Chinese team made 2,444 bets for a total amount exceeding one million dollars. Note that neither PSG.LGD nor xiao8 commented on the situation in any way.

On October 18, ex-wife Nina stated that he has repeatedly made bets on Dota 2 matches, including those of his own team. To confirm her words, she published screenshots of the Xiao8 account from the bookmaker’s website, as well as fragments of correspondence.

However, at the moment, many experts believe that the girl deliberately set up her ex-spouse and, for this, fabricated the necessary evidence against the cybersportsman.
