“The strategy is to strangle China.” The US is preparing to tighten restrictions on the supply of chips to China

The Biden administration plans next month to expand restrictions on US supplies to China of semiconductors used for artificial intelligence systems and chip manufacturing, Reuters reported.

A senior Commerce Department official declined to comment on the upcoming move, but said, “The strategy is to strangle China, and they’ve found they can do that with chips.”

The Commerce Department intends to publish new rules based on restrictions announced earlier this year in letters to three US companies – KLA Corp, Lam Research Corp and Applied Materials Inc. The letters, which the companies publicly acknowledged, forbade them from exporting chip-making equipment to Chinese factories that make advanced semiconductors with sub-14nm process technology unless the sellers obtained licenses from the Department of Commerce.

In addition, letters were sent to Nvidia Corp and Advanced Micro Devices last month instructing them to suspend shipments of some artificial intelligence computing chips to China unless they receive licenses.

Sources said the rules are likely to include additional measures against China. Restrictions are subject to change and rules posted later than expected. The new rules are believed to potentially apply to companies trying to challenge the dominance of Nvidia and AMD in AI chips.

Intel Corporation and startups like Cerebras Systems are targeting the same advanced computing markets. Intel said it was closely monitoring the situation, while Cerebras declined to comment. Dell Technologies, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, and Super Micro Computer make data center servers containing the Nvidia A100 chip. Dell and HPE said they were monitoring the situation, while Super Micro Computer did not respond to a request for comment.

Definitely one of the best remakes of the decade

Electronic Arts and developers EA Motive have released a gameplay trailer for the Dead Space remake, which is based on the Frostbite engine and will bring improved gameplay.

According to the plot, the events of Dead Space unfold on board the Ishimura ship. Engineer Isaac Clark is confronted by Necromorphs – the dead crew members of the Ishimura, resurrected and turned into monsters.

Definitely one of the best remakes of the decade

The video, which lasts more than two minutes, is full of gameplay elements: battles with necromorphs, exploration of the Ishimura, scenes in weightlessness.

User response has been very positive, with some of the reviews listed below:

  • Definitely one of the best remakes of the decade.
  • The new graphics are great and the weightless effect from Dead Space 2 looks phenomenal
  • I never thought that I would have to subject myself to such horror again, and yet here we are.
  • I’m excited about the remake. This game has become a legend
  • The intro to this game is still one of the creepiest in history.
  • I’m fucking excited about the remake
  • Everything about this game is amazing. Sound effects, atmosphere, voice acting, enhancements and game mechanics… all of it. I will definitely buy it

Nobel Prize in Chemistry awarded to three scientists for “development of click chemistry and bioorthogonal chemistry”

Nobel Prize in Chemistry awarded to three scientists for development

The 2022 Nobel Prize in Chemistry has been awarded to a group of scientists – the Americans Caroline Bertozzi and Barry Sharpless, as well as the Dane Morten Meldal. This was announced on Wednesday by the Nobel Committee of the Royal Academy of Sciences.

Scientists became laureates for “the development of click chemistry and bioorthogonal chemistry,” the committee’s reasoning statement says. As the secretary of the Nobel Committee announced, in this way the researchers contributed to the functional way of building molecules.

This year’s Chemistry Prize was awarded not for something super complicated, but for work on something that, on the contrary, is easy and simple. Functional molecules can even be created directly”, commented Johan Okvist, Chairman of the Nobel Committee for Chemistry.

This is the second Nobel Prize for Sharpless. In 2001, he already became its laureate together with William Knowles (USA) and Ryoji Noiori (Japan) for the discovery of catalysts for the production of so-called mirror molecules necessary for pharmaceuticals. This time, Sharpless took the first step by coming up with the concept of click chemistry, which is a form of simple and robust chemistry where reactions occur quickly and avoid unwanted by-products.

Soon, he and Meldal, individually, introduced what is now considered the crown jewel of click chemistry—copper-catalyzed azide-alkyne cycloaddition, an efficient chemical reaction that is in widespread use today. It is used in pharmaceuticals, for DNA mapping and the creation of materials adapted for specific purposes.

Bertozzi took click chemistry to the next level by developing click reactions within living organisms to map important but elusive biomolecules on the surface of cells called glycans. Its bioorthogonal reactions proceed without disturbing the normal chemistry of the cell. All over the world, these reactions are used to study cells and monitor biological processes. With their help, scientists have been able to increase the targeting of anti-cancer drugs that are currently undergoing clinical trials.

500 fps in Overwatch 2 at 1440p and Ultra settings

A few hours before the release of Overwatch 2, Nvidia published an infographic in which they presented performance data for various current models of their video cards in the game. Of course, all the attention here is on the new GeForce RTX 40 (Ada Lovelace) models.

According to Nvidia official data, the GeForce RTX 4090 is the only model that, at a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels and ultra settings, can provide frame rates in excess of 500 fps. The result is, of course, impressive. And it is even more impressive against the background of the GeForce RTX 4080, which is one step lower with 16 GB of memory – this model is capable of only 368 fps under the same conditions. However, both of these models are suitable for 360-Hz monitors.

The performance gaps between the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB, RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 are not that big anymore, but still noticeable.

Nvidia recommends using the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti when playing games at Full HD resolutions above 360Hz, while the GeForce RTX 3060 can be used with Full HD monitors that support 144Hz.
