Xiaomi has started selling the second generation of the 120W charger, which is suitable for recharging smartphones, laptops and other devices.
Last year, Xiaomi launched the flagship smartphone Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra, which comes with a 120W charger. A second generation of branded charging with the same power is now available in China for $ 38.
This power supply allows you to charge the 4500 mAh battery up to 41% in just 5 minutes and 100% in 23 minutes. The Xiaomi Mi Charger 120W adapter is equipped with ten intelligent protection systems: short circuit, overcurrent, overheating, overvoltage and undervoltage, and so on.
The manufacturer claims that with the original Xiaomi cable, this power supply allows you to safely charge most laptops with a USB-C connector, and also emphasizes that you will no longer need other adapters while traveling. The body is made of non-flammable matte white plastic with glossy inserts.
Xiaomi today also unveiled the new next-generation Mi Air Charge wireless charging technology, which allows you to charge multiple devices at the same time without the need for cables or a wireless charging cradle.
What the new AMD processor is capable of for thin and cheap laptops. Ryzen 3 7320U Benchmarks Appeared
The network has the first review of a laptop based on the AMD Mendocino processor line.
In this case, we are talking about the recently introduced Acer Aspire 3 A315 and APU Ryzen 3 7320U. Recall that this processor contains four Zen 2 cores with SMT support and a Radeon 610M GPU with 128 stream processors and the RDNA 2 architecture at the core.
Unfortunately, there are few tests so far. In particular, we can evaluate the performance of the processor part only by Cinebench. There is more data from PCMark, but they show about the same picture.
As you can see, in multi-threaded mode, the novelty is approximately at the level of the Core i5-1130G7. The Ryzen 7 4700U is expectedly faster due to the higher number of cores.
Much more interesting is the new iGPU Radeon 610M. It is based on the most advanced RDNA 2 architecture for AMD embedded GPUs, but has only 128 stream processors. For comparison, the Steam Deck has 512 p.p., while the Radeon 680M in the Ryzen 7 6800U already has 768 p.p.
As you can see, a fairly fresh architecture does not compensate for the meager number of computing units. As a result, in 3DMark, the Ryzen 3 7320U loses a lot to all test participants. Unfortunately, there are no solutions with similar performance among them, because even the Ryzen 7 4700U is almost twice as fast.
Thus, the gaming Ryzen 3 7320U cannot be called even with a big stretch. Of course, it is possible to play some old games, but there will be big problems with modern ones. In fact, we even have examples.
As you can see, Forza Horizon 5 can be played at 720p with the lowest graphics settings and active FidelityFX CAS technology. Skyrim works at 60 fps, but at 720p at medium settings and GTA V works in much the same way. That is, you can somehow play, but you have to sacrifice a lot.
It is worth remembering that the same Acer Aspire 3 A315 costs only $ 400, that is, the Ryzen 3 7320U feels very good in this price segment.
12 MP, 2.8K OLED touchscreen, Intel Core i7-1250U, 12 hours battery life. The latest convertible laptop Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air 13 has already fallen in price in China
Xiaomi started selling the new Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air 13 convertible laptop only at the end of October, with a few early buyers able to pre-order the device for $685, after which the recommended price rose to $835. Now the price has been reduced for all buyers to $725.
The device is about 12mm thick and features a 13.3-inch OLED touchscreen with a resolution of 2880 x 1800 pixels. Thanks to the 360° dual hinge design, users can change the shape of the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air 13 as they wish.
The screen displays more than a billion colors, is characterized by a peak brightness of 600 cd / m2, covering 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. The screen has a protective glass Gorilla Glass and recognizes touches at 10 points at the same time.
The novelty is equipped with 10-core Intel processors of the latest generation – up to Core i7-1250U. The amount of LPDDR5 RAM was 16 GB, the amount of solid state drive – 512 GB.
The laptop features a quad-speaker system with treble and bass separation combined with Dolby Atmos 3D surround sound technology. With a thickness of 12 mm, the laptop weighs about 1.2 kg. Battery life is about 12 hours. It takes 48 minutes to charge up to 50% via USB-C.
The laptop supports displaying pictures from a smartphone for easy information sharing.
Laptop shipments collapsed in October by 40% – no demand
According to DigiTimes Research, the cumulative shipments of the five major laptop manufacturers (not including Apple) in October decreased by 13% compared to the previous month and by almost 40% in annual terms. Analysts note that the reduction in demand from ordinary users, enterprises and educational institutions is to blame.
If we talk about the market structure, then Lenovo is the leader in terms of deliveries, although the advantage over HP is small (alas, specific figures are not given). Dell, in third place, is the only company that managed to increase the volume of shipments, but everything is very relative here: plus only because of the comparison with the low base of September, when demand in the corporate sector sank badly.
And most of all in October, Acer and Asus reduced deliveries: each by more than 20% compared to September. But there is nothing to do with enterprises or the educational sector: the deliveries of these two companies sank due to weak consumer demand.
Analysts note that the combined shipments of Taiwan’s top three contract notebook manufacturers fell 13% in October from September. Separately, it is noted that the supply of Quanta, which is responsible for assembling the MacBook, has fallen sharply.
