The first rumors about the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 are very encouraging.  The new platform should be energy efficient

Well-known insider Ice Universe claims that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 (SM8550) is already performing very well in terms of power efficiency. The first tests show that the new SoC will be better than the current Qualcomm and Snapdragon 888 platforms in this indicator.

Given that Qualcomm clearly doesn’t have production samples of the new SoC yet, this is very good news. They can especially please those who want to buy the Samsung flagships of the Galaxy S23 line, since, judging by the latest data, all of them in all markets will be based on the new Qualcomm SoC, that is, on Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.

Ice Universe has reported accurate information about smartphones and image sensors from Samsung and other manufacturers many times. In particular, he published the exact specifications of Redmi K40 and K50, as well as Xiaomi 12.

US Army tests Microsofts 22 billion augmented reality glasses

The US military has completed intensive testing of Microsoft’s new multifunctional glasses. The soldiers of the 70th Army wore glasses for three weeks, playing three 72-hour scenarios, including movement towards the enemy, attack and defense.

The results of the test report, which will be published in September, will determine whether the US Congress will approve the next $424.2 million test cycle, as well as whether purchases of the device, which is planned to spend another $21.9 billion, will begin. It should be noted that these 22 billion included not only the cost of the glasses themselves, but also spare parts, as well as technical support services for 10 years.

The glasses are a “head display” of the type used by fighter pilots. From a technical point of view, this is a heavily modified version of the HoloLens glasses. The screen of the device, which is always in front of the soldier’s eyes, displays a map of the area, instructions from commanders and other data (for example, an image of a thermal imager).

Elon Musk already has 100 million followers on Twitter A

Despite the fact that Elon Musk has not posted anything on Twitter for a week, his account on this social network is becoming more popular day by day. He recently passed the milestone of 100 million subscribers. To Cristiano Ronaldo, who is in last place in the top 5 most massive Twitter accounts, Musk is only 1.3 million subscribers.

Just over four years ago, at the beginning of 2018, Musk had only 18 million followers on Twitter, and at the time of signing the recent deal to buy Twitter, Musk had 83.6 million followers on the social network. In other words, Ronaldo will not stay in fifth place for long.

It must be said that Musk is used by Twitter not only as a platform for communication, but also for manipulation – very often his messages influenced the quotes of stocks and cryptocurrencies. And you can also remember his tweet about Coca-Cola and cocaine – he became the second most popular in the history of the platform, having collected more than 4.5 million likes.

Arm didn’t say much about ray tracing in the Immortalis-G715. So far, no tests or full-fledged comparisons have been presented, so it is not yet possible to assess the quality of work and the number of frames per second. At the same time, ready-made solutions will have to wait until 2023. However, Arm still shared a video that demonstrates the capabilities of the new graphics solution.

Previously, a new super-powerful Cortex-X3 processor core was reported. Less productive solutions were also presented.
