“The semiconductor issue will affect us for another eight or nine months.” Volkswagen believes the situation will improve by mid-2023

German car giant Volkswagen says ongoing semiconductor shortages and inventory shortages will continue until the middle of next year, just in time for the arrival of the first Volkswagen ID.4 electric car in Australia.

Volkswagen Australia passenger car director Michal Zaniecki said in an interview with Drive that the outlook for 2023 is starting to look more positive.

The facts today are that the semiconductor problem will affect us for another eight or nine months. And after this period, we will actually start producing ID.4, which is theoretically advantageous in terms of the volume that we want to get here for Australia. So at that moment on him [ID.4] should not be influenced by the level of problems we face today.

Volkswagen Australia says it is working to start production of the ID.4 and its sportier sibling the ID.5 in mid-2023 rather than late 2023, so the first vehicles could hit local showrooms before the end of next year.

Attraction of unheard of generosity US Ryzen 7000 Buyers Get

The American retailer Microcenter, which has recently reduced the cost of 12th generation Intel Core processors, has launched a very attractive promotion for everyone who switches to the AMD AM5 platform. The seller offers buyers of Ryzen 7000 processors of the Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 9 series (Ryzen 5 7600X, of course, does not participate in the promotion) DDR5 memory for free.

And we are not talking about some kind of OEM memory, but about a completely branded G.Skill Flare X5 with support for EXPO profiles. The kit consists of two DDR5-5600 modules with a capacity of 16 GB each. The cost of this memory kit, if purchased separately, is $190 in the US.

Interestingly, the promotion provides another bonus: in addition to a free memory kit, you can get a $ 20 discount if you buy a compatible motherboard from the proposed list. In general, the total benefit if you buy the entire platform (motherboard, processor and memory) is $210.

The US Department of Defense will be the first to receive products on the 18A process from Intel

Intel said that products based on the 18A process technology will primarily be produced for the needs of the US military.

The US Department of Defense will be the first to receive products on the 18A process from Intel

More specifically, the US Department of Defense will be the first Intel customer to receive the relevant semiconductor solutions. Intel already has a contract worth $250 million, and it does not concern the purchase, but for now only the design and development of next-generation chips. The contract for the purchase of such products will bring Intel much more money.

Process 18A is already being actively developed by Intel. The company claims that it will launch related products in 2024, but this, as we understand it, will not affect consumer solutions. When Core processors on such a technical process will appear on the market is still unknown.

The 18A process itself is difficult to correlate with others, which are described in a more familiar form with nanometers. The name of the process technology indicates 18 angstroms, that is, it is 1.8 nm. Given that the Intel 7 process is actually 10nm and the Intel 4 is actually 7nm, it’s likely that 18A can be loosely called 3nm. On the other hand, for quite some time now, the number of nanometers in the name of the process technology says little, and each company considers it differently.

Acer decided to enter the video card market and not with Nvidia or AMD products. Acer has unveiled its first 3D card today and it’s the Arc A770 Predator BiFrost.

Whether Acer will release only Intel cards is still unknown. In this case, we can see a non-reference design, two eight-pin power connectors at once (the reference card has 6 + 8 connectors) and a very unusual cooling system with two fans, which are very different both in size and design. The smaller one is completely similar to the centrifugal one, but it is impossible to say for sure from one image.

There is also no data on the Acer card yet. Recall, Arc A770 has 8 or 16 GB of memory and 4096 FP32 blocks. The card is priced at $330 or $350, depending on the version. Intel also introduced the more affordable Arc A750, priced at $290.
