United Microelectronics Corporation (UMC), a major semiconductor manufacturer, announced that its board of directors has approved a plan to build a new manufacturing facility in Singapore adjacent to its existing Fab12i 300mm wafer factory. The first phase of the new factory, designed to produce products according to the standards of 22 and 28 nm, will have a capacity of 30,000 wafers per month. The start of production is expected at the end of 2024.

The new factory (Fab12i P3) is said to be one of the most advanced semiconductor manufacturing facilities in Singapore. The planned investment in this project is $5 billion. UMC has been operating in Singapore for more than 20 years, having not only a production facility here, but also a specialized research and development center in the field of advanced technologies. With the expansion of Fab12i, the company’s 2022 capex budget will be revised upwards to $3.6 billion.

The announcement of the plans to build a new factory noted that customers have already signed multi-year supply agreements with UMC, confirming the forecast of strong demand in the coming years for products manufactured using UMC’s 22nm and 28nm technology. The factory will specialize in embedded high-voltage devices, embedded non-volatile memory, RF and mixed signal processing ICs for a wide range of applications, including smartphones, smart home devices and automotive electronics. The company expects the factory to play an important role in meeting the growing demand in these markets and help alleviate capacity shortages.

Diablo IV is even on the iron In Full HD

Diablo IV has already become available for a number of players, and the authors of Tom`s Hardware decided to test the game on different video cards, including very old ones, because the project has low system requirements, and gamers who participated in the beta test reported that the game feels great on older GPUs.

It turned out that even old 3D cards like the GeForce GTX 670 are enough for normal operation of the game in Full HD at minimum graphics quality settings. Even such an adapter with only 2 GB of memory provides more than 60 fps, although the 1% Low indicator drops up to 28 fps. The GTX 1050 performs better, hitting 56 fps and around 40 fps for 1% Low.

At the same resolution, but already at the maximum graphics quality settings, the GTX 1050 is no longer enough, as the 1% Low value drops to 15 fps. But the GTX 970 or RX 570 handles the game without any problems.

In the same mode, but at 1440p resolution, it is better to get something like the RX 590 or GTX 1070, although the activation of FSR 2 allows you to continue using the same GTX 970.

4K resolution traditionally places much higher demands on the graphics subsystem. Here you already need a video card of a level not lower than the Radeon RX 6600, but better than the RTX 3060. For the cherished 60 fps, you will have to buy at least an RTX 4060 Ti or RX 6700 XT.

It is also worth noting that the game does not currently support ray tracing, but soon such a mode will appear, which will increase the requirements for the GPU.

Microsoft is about to completely stop supporting the Cortana voice assistant. Already from the end of this year, support for this application will cease, although the company has not yet announced the exact date.

The next brainchild of Microsoft will go to rest.  The company will stop supporting the Cortana app on Windows at the end of the year.

In general, this was more than expected, since the assistant introduced in 2015 did not gain popularity from the very beginning, and even Microsoft itself quickly stopped somehow promoting it. Now the company has unveiled the Windows Copilot tool, which will offer much the same as Cortana, only bigger and better.

Actually, in Windows 11, initially Cortana did not have any significant place and did not appear when the OS was first loaded.

However, Microsoft notes that the changes will only affect Cortana on Windows, while the assistant will still be available in Outlook Mobile, Teams Mobile, Microsoft Teams display and Microsoft Teams room.

Motorola isn’t even close to being the market leader in foldable smartphones, but its Razr models have proven to be a big draw for iPhone owners.

They are giving up the iPhone.  Motorola reveals 20% of Razr foldable smartphone buyers are ex-iPhone owners

In an interview with CNet, Allison Yi, head of Motorola’s North American product division, said that of all Motorola’s products, the foldable Razr is the most popular among iPhone owners.

This is definitely the family we have the most iPhone users moving to.

It turns out that 20% of Razr buyers are former owners of Apple smartphones. They are probably attracted by the fresh form factor in which the iPhone is not presented and probably will not be presented for a long time. At the same time, we must remember that we are talking about North America, where, in addition to the Razr, only the Samsung Flip is in this form factor.

Motorola recently unveiled its new foldable smartphones, including the revolutionary cheap (in China) Moto Razr 40, but in the US, only the older Razr Plus (called the Moto Razr 40 Ultra in China) will sell for $1,000.
