Nvidia introduced the GeForce MX550 budget mobile GPU last December. The appearance of ready-made devices with this GPU is expected in the spring, so it would be good to understand now what level of performance it is capable of. The test conducted in PassMark provides a generalized answer to this question.
The GeForce MX550 scored 5014 points, a 35% increase over its predecessor, the GeForce MX450 (3724 points). The result of the mobile GeForce GTX 1650 in the same test is almost 7000 points, but it is clear that the MX550 is much closer to this gaming GPU than its predecessor. So the GeForce MX550 will already allow you to play games: at Full HD resolution and with minimal graphics settings, but still.
The performance of the GeForce MX550 in the 3DMark Time Spy test is 2510 points. For comparison, the integrated GPU of the Core i7-1165G7 scores 1600 points, while the top version scores 2200 points.

A large and complex processor that looks like a little man. Amazon AWS Graviton3 go to market
Amazon today made available AWS Graviton3 processors, which were shown six months ago.
Like the previous models in the series, Graviton3 is server-oriented and created by Amazon itself for its own cloud servers. It contains about 55 billion transistors and is based on the Arm architecture. Relative to its predecessor, the novelty is two to three times faster, depending on the tasks.
But one of the most interesting features of Graviton3 is the design. Or structure. It is not so important how to call it, but what is important is that, as you can see in the photo, the processor crystals are arranged in such a way that they resemble a little man.
There are seven dies in total: the main processor, two DDR5 RAM dies and two PCIe bus dies. Another distinguishing feature of Graviton3 is that it is designed for three-socket motherboards, which is quite rare. Typically, the number of sockets, if greater than one, is a multiple of two.
Asus introduced a unique monitor with a frame rate of 500 Hz. ROG Swift 500 Hz received a TN panel
While monitors with frame rates over 240Hz are still rare, Asus took the ROG Swift 500Hz model and showed it. As you might guess, with a frame rate of 500 Hz!
At the moment, the maximum value is 360 Hz, so there is an impressive jump. The monitor is coming out as part of Nvidia’s G-Sync initiative, which means it will support the corresponding technology.
The monitor is positioned as a solution for eSports, which is logical, since the average gamer is unlikely to feel those same 500 Hz.
As for the rest of the parameters, the monitor is based on a 24-inch TN panel with Full HD resolution. Of course, this may seem outdated, but still we are talking about a professional tool, so for potential users, this is not all minuses. But the release date on the market is still unknown. It is possible that the monitor will be released only at the end of the year.
