Top SSD Samsung 990 Pro can lose “health” before our eyes. In a few days, the indicator may decrease by several percent.

It looks like the Samsugn SSD 990 Pro SSDs may be suffering from some sort of lifespan shortening issue. Or at least the test software thinks so for some reason.

Neowin portal editor Robbie Khan, just a couple of days after purchasing the said 2TB SSD, discovered that Samsung Magician software indicates that 99% of the drive remained healthy. Perhaps this would not have been a problem if, after another day, the indicator had not dropped to 98%, and after a couple of days, even to 95%. As an example, Khan mentions other Samsung SSDs he has in stock that are showing 99% after a year and a half.

On the Web, Khan found other complaints about the similar behavior of the Korean giant’s new top drives and decided to contact the service center.

A few days later, he received a response, where it was said that everything was in order with the device. The letter from Samsung said that the drive had been reset to factory settings, but a quick test showed that, firstly, the health of the SSD was still at 94%, and secondly, that the drive was only formatted, but not reset.

Khan later discovered that not only were there many such complaints on the Web, but there were also those where, when writing only 2 TB, the SSD health indicator dropped to 64%. Samsung has not yet made any official comments on the situation.

Against these AMD processors will be the Intel Processor CPU

Notebooks based on AMD’s Mendocino line of APUs are beginning to appear on the market. And a review of the first such model has already appeared on the Web.

We are talking about a laptop Acer Aspire 3 (A315-24P-R758B) worth $400. For this money, the buyer will receive a 15-inch mobile PC with 8 GB of LPDDR5 memory, a 128 GB SSD and a Ryzen 3 7320U APU, which includes four Zen 2 cores at up to 4.1 GHz and a Radeon 610M GPU with RDNA 2 architecture, but only 128 stream processors.

Unfortunately, the authors of the Liliputing site did not test the system in any real applications for work, but on the other hand, Mendocino APUs are not focused on some kind of heavy load.

In benchmarks, as we can see, the Ryzen 3 7320U processor shows itself approximately at the level of the Core i5-1130G / 1135G7, but the graphics core loses to all test participants, and noticeably. For games, such a laptop can only be used if these same games are very undemanding and / or old.

At the same time, the author of the article noted that in everyday tasks in Chrome, GIMP, Irfanview and LibreOffice, the new Acer behaves very well, and there is no particular difference with much more expensive laptops.

As for autonomy, it is at an average level. In particular, watching YouTube at 60% screen brightness completely drained the laptop in seven hours.

At the same time, this Aspire 3 model offers Wi-Fi 6, USB-C 3.2, Bluetooth 5.2, HDMI 2.1, USB-C charging and an 18.8 mm thick case with a weight of 1.78 kg.

It is worth noting that laptops with Ryzen 3 7320U and other Mendocino APUs play in the same price segment, where there will be models on the new Intel Processor CPUs that have replaced Celeron and Pentium.

Nvidia how many thousand dollars will such a video card

It’s not yet clear if Nvidia will release a GeForce RTX 4090 Ti graphics card, but a new Titan model seems to have a chance. At the very least, what is likely to be the new Titan has been featured on some sort of bill of lading.

Nvidia, how many thousand dollars will such a video card cost?  In the Network appeared indications of the possibility of a new model of Titan with 48 GB of memory

You can see that we are talking about a card with board number PG137 and 48 GB of memory. Firstly, a board with this number had previously appeared in rumors of a relative new Titan, and secondly, just 48 GB of memory was always attributed to the new Titan. This is not proof yet, but more weighty arguments.

Interestingly, the memory is listed as GDDR6, not GDDR6X. Of course, the first one can also be very high-frequency, but still the second one has higher frequencies.

According to all the leaks, the new Titan model can get the AD102 GPU in full configuration with 18,176 CUDA cores and 48 GB of memory with a 384-bit memory bus. True, the same thing, with only 24 GB of memory, is attributed to the RTX 4090 Ti models, and it is not clear whether Nvidia needs two very similar cards. It is also hard to even imagine how much the new Titan could cost. For example, the Titan RTX came out in 2018 and cost $2,500, while the RTX 2080 Ti on the same GPU was asked for $1,000.

Intel had just launched its Sapphire Rapids server processors, and a photo related to the next generation of Sierra Forest has already appeared on the Web.

One of the photos shows the protective cover of the processor socket of the board designed for new CPUs. And you can see that we are talking about the LGA-7529 connector. Recall that the number indicates the number of contacts. By comparison, Sapphire Rapids are LGA-4677, meaning there will be a massive increase in pin count.

Such a huge number of contacts is likely due to the fact that these CPUs, according to leaks, will have a huge number of cores. The latest data was about 344 or even 528 cores! True, these are all small nuclei, but the number is somehow huge.

According to Intel itself, Sierra Forest will be manufactured using the Intel 3 process technology, and such CPUs will be released next year.
