Two new Crucial X6 SSDs differ in price sevenfold

Published

on

Launched last August in 1TB and 2TB models, the Crucial X6 portable SSD lineup has expanded with two more models. It’s a 500GB drive that costs $ 70 and a 4TB drive that costs $ 490.

Like its predecessors, the new Crucial X6 drives are equipped with a USB 3.2 Gen2 interface, which signals are routed to the USB-C connector. However, the larger drive was also faster than the others. It claims a maximum sequential read speed of 800 MB / s, while for the other three models – 540 MB / s.

Devices with dimensions of 11 x 69 x 64 mm and weighing 40 g without consequences tolerate falls from a height of up to 2 m, vibration, exposure to low and high temperatures. A USB-C cable is included. Wider compatibility is provided by the separately sold USB-C to USB-A adapter.

“The sale of SIM cards is really becoming more expensive and meaningless,” MTS will reduce sales of SIM cards and the number of communication stores

The sale of SIM cards is really becoming more

MTS President Vyacheslav Nikolaev said that the company plans to move towards reducing sales of SIM-cards, as well as reducing their points of sale.

It seems to me that now, when the cost of SIM cards has increased by an order of magnitude, it’s time to heal this market. Therefore, from the point of view of sales of SIM cards, it seems to me that the sales volume can now be reduced, especially since for us, ecosystem effects provide very serious advantages in reducing the outflow – this also allows us to take sales more calmly.

“The sale of SIM cards is really becoming more expensive and meaningless,” MTS will reduce sales of SIM cards and the number of communication stores

Nikolaev noted that an increasing number of customers are also moving online, which also allows, in terms of telecom, to reduce the number of their own points of sale.

From the point of view of telecom, it seems to me that this is a very timely issue, and perhaps the right actions will be taken by the entire market. At least we will go in this direction. We hope that colleagues will not be far behind, because selling SIM cards is indeed becoming more expensive and pointless.

As we have already reported, MTS may sell its tower business.

Samsung is preparing an ultimate SSD The company teases with

Samsung has started teasing Twitter users with an advertisement for a new SSD. The company does not specify the details, calling the new Ultimate SSD.

Samsung is preparing an

Third-party sources expect this to be a new SSD (or a whole series) with a PCIe 5.0 interface. These may well be models of the Samsung 990 SSD line, which were previously lit up in the databases of regulators.

Samsung previously released the PM1743 PCIe 5.0 SSD for the data center, and it offers data transfer speeds of up to 14GB/s, so you can expect similar numbers from the 990 Pro.

Intel can make the Core i9-13900K even more attractive with a new auto-overclocking mode.

Some motherboards will turn the Core i9-13900K into a power consumption monster.  The power limit will increase to 350W

The source reports that some motherboards based on 700-series chipsets will allow you to activate an increased power limit. In this case, we are talking about a value of 350 watts. For comparison, Alder Lake has a maximum of 241 watts.

The values ​​of PL1 and PL2 for the new CPUs will hardly change and will amount to 125 and 253 W, respectively. But there will also be an opportunity to remove the limit, thanks to which the Core i9-13900K will be able to consume up to 350 watts. In this case, of course, the motherboard will need a powerful power supply subsystem, and the processor will need a productive CO.

CPU performance in this mode can increase by 15%, although this will depend on the tasks. Whether the Core i9-13900KS, which was previously assigned a frequency of up to 6 GHz, will be released under such conditions is now unclear.
