The VirtualBox virtual machine was recently updated to version 7.0.0 and received, among other things, support for Apple Silicon processors, which are used in the latest Mac computers. To be more precise, the system is compatible with the Apple M1 and M2, although it is this feature that has been announced so far only in the beta version.
The developers noted that due to the experimental status of VirtualBox based on the M1 and M2 processors, there may be bugs, reduced performance, and other issues.
In addition, the new version has support for virtual machine encryption, work with the DirectX 11 graphics API on Windows, and support for new APIs on macOS. The new version can already be downloaded from the project website. To run a virtual machine on computers with Apple Silicon processors, select the Developer preview for macOS option.
Earlier it was reported that the media talked about the new MacBook Pro, Mac mini and Apple TV.
Phison 8 TB SSD will be sent to the moon next year – there will be a data center
The manufacturer Phison announced that it is participating in a project to create data centers on the moon. This mission is carried out by Lonestar, SkyCorp and Canonical. The launch of this data center is planned for the second half of 2023.
According to the company, their 8TB M.2 2280 NVMe drive has passed NASA Technology Readiness Level 6 (TRL-6) testing, which confirms its performance and can be used in space, at low temperatures and in vacuum.
Initially, we are talking about one server. Its storage module will be the size of a book. It will be equipped with SoC on the RISC-V architecture, and the power will come from solar panels. The server will deliver the NOVA-C lander, which is being developed by Intuitive Machines, to the Moon.
Note that this is not the first space mission involving Phison. Earlier, her 8 GB drive was installed in the Perseverance Martian rover. Also on board the ISS is used from a 4 TB SSD.
Earlier it was reported that the European Union wants to place data centers in space.
Not as thick as new Nvidia graphics cards. Non-Reference XFX RX 7900 XT Merc 310 Image Revealed
XFX will offer non-reference 3D cards of the Radeon RX 7000 line. Images of the RX 7900 XT Merc 310 model have already appeared on the Web, but we can safely assume that there will also be a similar-looking RX 7900 XTX Merc 310.
The card is made in the usual XFX design. It is very long, but not the thickest by modern standards. It will probably take up less than three expansion slots.
You can also highlight three power connectors (8 + 8 + 8) and the absence of a USB-C port, which is available on new generation AMD reference adapters.
Recall that the RX 7900 will be launched on December 13th. On the same day, reviews of new AMD products will be published. If the new 3D cards prove to be very successful for their prices, Nvidia can reduce the price of the GeForce RTX 4080, because it is 20% more expensive than the top RX 7900 XTX.
Intel graphics cards are drastically faster in some older games. Intel has worked on support for DirectX 9
Intel Arc graphics cards, among other things, have rather mediocre performance in older games. But today the company has released a fresh driver that significantly changes the situation, although not in all games.
The company has worked on optimization for some specific games, adding native support for DirectX 9. In particular, it is important to note Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, in which the performance of Arc adapters increased by almost 80%. The company has also worked on the 1% percentile, increasing the rate by up to 2.3 times, which should make the gameplay smoother.
Not all old games have received an impressive performance boost, but Intel can still be commended for continuing to work on its accelerators.
