The deal of the century in the software market. Adobe buys startup Figma for $20 billion

Published

Adobe buys software startup Figma for $20 billion. Adobe will finance the deal partly with shares and partly with cash. Interestingly, against the background of this news, Adobe shares fell by 13% after the opening of the New York Stock Exchange. According to Bloomberg Intelligence’s Anurag Rana, Adobe’s share price is being weighed down by the very high cost of the deal. Indeed, the deal has already been called the largest acquisition in the software development market.

The deal of the century in the software market.  Adobe buys startup Figma for $20 billion

Figma helps to create website and app design from scratch, has a simple interface and extensive collaboration features – users can comment on developments and make changes to the team in real time. The service took off during the pandemic, when many people switched to remote work. Now Figma’s clients include both the largest international companies (Airbnb, Google, Herman Miller and Kimberly-Clark) and private users.

Figma was founded about ten years ago by Dylan Field and Evan Wallace. A year ago, the company was valued at $10 billion, so it’s no surprise that $20 billion seems overpriced to analysts now.

As for Adobe itself, it is experiencing difficult times: since the beginning of the year, its shares have lost more than a third of their value. Investors are increasingly skeptical about the dominance of Adobe’s line of software, which generates about 60% of the company’s revenue, for design professionals. And when the company began to actively promote the relatively inexpensive Photoshop Express for private users and small companies, it immediately ran into fierce competition from Figma, Lightricks and Canva.

The deal is expected to close in 2023 after receiving regulatory approval. After the closure, Field will continue to lead the Figma team, and the service itself will continue to operate on its own.

Intel unintentionally showed 34 core processors where all the cores are

Intel introduced the Raptor Lake processors, where the flagship is the Core i9-13900K with 8 large and 16 small cores, that is, it has a total of 24 cores. But perhaps Intel has something even more impressive?

Intel unintentionally showed 34-core processors, where all the cores are large

At the Intel Innovation 2022 event, the company demonstrated a wafer with Raptor Lake crystals. Not only are the crystals themselves clearly not the same as those of the new Core desktop products, the label also directly indicates that these are 34-core processors.

The study of the crystals showed that probably all 34 nuclei are large. Interestingly, the Intel booth staff had no idea what kind of CPU it was.

Presumably, these may be processors of the Sapphire Rapids family, which are expected next year. They should come out both in the server segment and in the segment of solutions for workstations. Perhaps the latter will be promoted as part of the Raptor Lake line, although the labeling may simply be a mistake.

The monstrous Core i9 13900KS lit up on the Web and

That same mysterious Intel processor with a frequency of 6 GHz out of the box has already lit up on the Web. And it’s actually called the Core i9-13900KS, as we expected.

Moreover, it immediately lit up in the CPU-Z benchmark, scoring 982 and 18,453 points there in single-threaded and multi-threaded modes, respectively.

In comparison, the Core i9-13900K scores 810 and 14,900 points out of the box, and 945 and 16,880 points when the power limit is removed, according to the results available on the Web. True, you need to understand that in all these cases the results were obtained on the CPU before they were released to the market, so they may be slightly different for serial samples. As for the Core i9-12900K, its upscale score is 825 and 11,320, while the latest Ryzen 9 7950X scores 787 and 15,660.

Under what conditions the Core i9-13900KS was tested is unknown. He, too, could pass the benchmark without power restrictions.

Recall, Intel said that such a processor will be released next year in a limited edition.

Is the cheapest video card of the current generation now

Intel is indeed gearing up to launch the ultra-affordable Arc A310 graphics card. Yesterday the company introduced the flagship Arc A770 and new processors, but the A310 quietly registered on the company’s website.

It has only 6 Xe cores, that is, 768 FP32 blocks. The GPU runs at 2100 MHz, and there is also 4 GB of GDDR6 memory at 15.5 GHz and a 64-bit bus.

The card does not have a price, but with such parameters it cannot be large. In addition, the same Arc A380 is priced at only $140, while the A310 should be cheaper. This will mean that it is the Arc A310 that will become the cheapest current generation video card on the market, since the Radeon RX 6400 and GeForce GTX 1630 (if it can be attributed to the current generation at all) are simply more expensive.
