On December 12, Xiaomi introduced its first SSD (external), and at the same time, fundraising began on the collective financing platform for its production. It turned out that the device is of interest to a large number of people, even for a considerable size and a decent price ($95 for 1 TB): 15,980 people participated in the program, which raised $342,740 to launch the SSD.

The company said that the program of collective financing of this product is closed. Everyone who participated in it will receive an SSD for the specified amount, and in retail the device will cost $115.

Along the way, details about the hardware of the SSD became known. So, it uses the Silicon Motion SM2320 controller – at the time of the announcement, the manufacturer called it the fastest single-chip controller for portable external SSDs (with sequential read and write speeds of 2100 and 2000 MB / s, respectively). The memory chips are 128-layer 3D TLC manufactured by Micron.

Are Intel Arc graphics cards going to be the best value for money now? The company claims to have increased productivity by up to 87%

Are Intel Arc graphics cards going to be the best

Intel has released a fresh graphics driver for Arc video cards, which, as the company itself promises, will increase performance by some incredible values.

Of course, not everywhere, but Intel says that in Full HD performance will increase by up to 77%, in 1440p by 87%, and the average increase for older games with DirectX 9, which Arc cards initially had problems with, should increase by 43%. All these figures are valid for the Arc A750, which Intel has just reduced the price to $250.

The growth that Intel promises is really impressive. Under these conditions, the $250 Arc A750 should be the best-value graphics card in the class, as it competes on price with the GeForce RTX 3050 and Radeon RX 6600, which it could previously beat. However, it is better to wait for various tests and evaluate whether such an impressive performance increase really takes place.

How gigantic will these Intel processors be A comparative photo

We have already seen photos of the LGA7529 socket for the new Intel Xeon server processors, and now it’s time to understand how huge the CPUs themselves will be.

In the comparison photo, you can see the LGA4677 socket for the recently released Sapphire Rapids processors and the much larger LGA7529 for the upcoming Granite Rapids and Sierra Forest CPUs.

According to preliminary calculations, the dimensions of the new CPUs will be about 105 x 70.5 mm, that is, they will be about 70% larger than the current generation, which is rather big in itself. For comparison, the dimensions of the monstrous Epyc Genoa are approximately 72 x 75.4 mm. It is quite possible that the new Intel processors will be the largest on the market at the time of release.

The LGA7529 (Birch Stream-AP) platform is expected next year. As part of the platform, Intel is going to release two lines of completely different processors. The first will be Granite Rapids, which will reportedly contain up to 128 large Redwood Cove + cores, and the second will be Sierra Forest, which will have all small cores, but there will be either 344 or even 528 of them.
