Venus Optics has released details on the Laowa Argus line of lenses, which will include four models with a maximum aperture of f / 0.95, designed for different photo systems. They all focus manually.

The manufacturer held an online event dedicated to new products in China, but did not have time to repeat it in other regions, and the thematic sites were already full of leaks. As a result, it was decided not to make official presentations, and publish the details without much fanfare.

The first model is the Laowa Argus 25mm F0.95 Micro Four Thirds system. It provides a field of view equivalent to a 50mm EGF on a full-frame sensor and consists of 14 elements in 8 groups, including one aspherical element, two ultra-low dispersion elements and three high refractive index elements. The nine-blade aperture ranges from f / 0.95 to f / 16. The minimum focusing distance is 25 cm. Filters with a diameter of 62 mm can be attached to the lens. The largest diameter of the objective itself is 71 mm, length – 86 mm, weight – 570 g. This model should appear on sale in the fourth quarter at a price of about $ 530.

The GeForce RTX 3060 8GB is a “terrible anti-consumer move”. There was a full-fledged testing of a stripped-down video card

The GeForce RTX 3060 8GB is a terrible anti consumer move

Some time ago, Nvidia introduced the GeForce RTX 3060 with 8GB of memory. And today we can evaluate its performance for the first time.

The GeForce RTX 3060 8GB is a

But first, let’s recall that the new version differs from the original not only in the amount of memory, but also in a narrower bus (128 bits versus 192 bits).

And if 8 GB of memory is almost always enough for modern games, then a narrower bus in the case of this adapter becomes quite critical. Tests show that in Full HD the new version is on average 17% slower than the original. At 1440p the difference grows to 18%. That is, it is quite a lot.

Yes, the gap from the RTX 3050 is still very large, and Nvidia does not have other current cards in this segment, so the release of a simplified RTX 3060 at the right price can be regarded positively.

The problem is that so far the RTX 3060 8GB is sold at a slightly lower price than the older sister, which makes buying the younger one impractical. However, if the price falls as a result, the stripped-down novelty will quite find its buyer. In the meantime, the authors of Hardware Unboxed called this video card “a terrible anti-consumer move by Nvidia.”

Intel explained where it will take many billions of dollars

Intel, as you know, plans to build new factories in the US, like a number of other semiconductor giants. However, such projects require huge costs.

Intel said the Arizona factory would cost $30 billion to build, but the company would not finance the entire project itself.

Intel explained where it will take many billions of dollars to build a new plant in the US

Back in August, Intel entered into an agreement with the Canadian company Brookfield Asset Management, with which together it will finance the construction of the plant. Those same 30 billion dollars in this case will be divided almost equally. Intel said that a similar approach will be applied in future projects. Such a decision, along with subsidies, will allow reaching the same level of costs as in the case of building a factory in Asia.

Intel said that the market already felt a high level of interest in such projects, so the company will have the opportunity to attract both old and new partners in the future. The company also notes that Europe is also going to pass laws that will allow companies to receive subsidies and build new factories in this region.

GeForce GTX 1060 finally retires. GTX 1650 tops Steam stats, though it depends how you count it

GeForce GTX 1060 finally retires GTX 1650 tops Steam stats

The Steam stats have been updated, and there are tangible changes again.

GeForce GTX 1060 finally retires.  GTX 1650 tops Steam stats, though it depends how you count it

The GeForce GTX 1650 knocked the GTX 1060 off its pedestal in one big leap to become the most popular 3D gaming card… if you just look at the table.

Recall that with the release of the RTX 30 line in Steam statistics, mobile and desktop cards of this generation began to be displayed separately, while before that they were all displayed together under one name. Thus, the GTX 1650 takes 6.27%, and the RTX 3060, if you add the mobile and desktop versions, takes 8.04%, so the RTX 3060 is the most popular video card among Steam gamers, and will probably remain so for more for a very long time.

Returning to the castling in the table, the GTX 1060 has been in first place for the last couple of years, if not more, but this card has not been on sale for a long time, and the GTX 1650 is still available. In just one month, the newer card gained 0.66 percentage points while the GTX 1060 lost 1.85 percentage points for some reason. By the way, the RTX 2060 also sank very strongly (by 1.46 p.p.), and the share of the desktop RTX 3060 fell by 2.06 p.p., which is very strange.

In terms of processors, AMD’s share jumped 3.88 percentage points over the month to 32.87%. The most popular on Steam are six-core CPUs with a share of 33.52%, the share of processors with four cores is 30.07%, and eight-core processors occupy 19.19%.
