The Type Of Digest. Mate 20 Pro for 680 euros “naked” Core i9-9900K, impolite autopilot Waymo and unnecessary GTX 1060

This warm autumn evening offer you a regular digest of news missed over the past week that are still very interesting. Drove.

  • As you know, now there are problems with the availability of desktop Intel processors, because of which prices rise. There was a rumor that there are problems with mobile CPU, and even the most simple — family Gemini Lake (“atomic” models). This means that the increase in price in the near future can even the budget laptops on Intel.
  • In the network appeared the test results of Intel CPU generation Ice Lake. This is something that should come in Cannon Lake, but it is unclear exactly when. Tested CPU with two cores and Hyper-Threading. Apparently, it was a model Core i3 line of Ice Lake-U. it is Interesting that the new CPU will be more cache: 50% increase in the volume L1 and half L2.
  • MediaTek has recently introduced SoC Helio P70. I did not write about her individual story, because it’s just the overclocked version of the P60. There is slightly higher CPU frequency and GPU, as well as improved engine AI. Sorry, I was waiting for MediaTek something level Snapdragon 710.

  • Waymo the company claims that it will soon make its self-driving cars less polite. Supposedly now the autopilot is configured for very careful driving, which drivers are sometimes difficult to predict the behavior of such vehicles on the road. To unmanned machines have become more like “normal”, the autopilot will make it less polite. I hope, swearing to teach them not to be.

  • I think you all listened to the stories about the fact that Apple slows down old phones with new versions of iOS. In fact, even before it was possible to find tests to prove it, although that’s supposedly iOS 12, by contrast, does old men more nimble. In General, in Italy Apple was fined 10 million euros for the slowdown of old phones. Another 5 million were fined for the same and Samsung.
  • Analysts believe that in 2019 NAND flash memory will drop even more than this. This means that the SSD will be even cheaper. I don’t know how, but now on a 512 GB can be bought for UAH 2200-2500.
  • AMD stopped releasing graphics drivers for 32-bit operating systems. Latest — Radeon Software WHQL 18.9.3 Adrenalin, released at the beginning of the month. Nvidia, recall, did the same at the beginning of the year.

  • HP EliteDisplay E243d — entertaining monitor, which can connect to the laptop (and not only) through the USB-C and used as a docking station. Because there is the usual USB, RJ45 and even. And support USB Power Delivery, so that the monitor can charge the connected device. Then panel 27 inch Full HD and the price is $ 340.

  • Xiaomi promises to teach smartphones Mi 8 and Mi 2S Mix to remove as good as Mi 3 Mix. So where all the same basic modules, the only difference is, that Xiaomi may do what it promises. It would be cool.

  • Huawei said that the ranking of DxOMark do not have a smartphone Mate 20 Pro, because his score is too high! The company allegedly did not want to hurt their competitors, and therefore did not give approval for the publication of the review. Don’t know how real it is in this case, but this situation was like with the camera the Pentax 645z, so anything is possible.

  • But this color, which experimented OnePlus for OnePlus 6T. But there are again two black and allegedly purple.


  • Xiaomi is preparing a completely wireless headphones. Model Mi AirDots should be very good for the price, well quality the company usually is no problem. The only question is the convenience and sound quality.
  • Recently, Apple became the first company, which reached a capitalization of 1 trillion dollars. Soon after this milestone was reached and Amazon. Only here then Amazon shares went down and now it has surpassed Microsoft. Microsoft has not yet reached a trillion, but it is second after Apple. Its market capitalization — 821 billion, Amazon — 801 billion, from Alphabet — 751 billion.
  • And here is a polished Core i9-9900K. Beauty, isn’t it?

  • In China there was a smartphone Huawei Mate 20 Pro for only 680 euros. How so? He simply deprived podernovo scanner. Well, plus it’s China, baby.
  • Recently, Nvidia has appeared in range of the GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB of memory GDDR5X. Only on the website did not specify the frequency. Let me remind you, there are two versions of 1060 with 6 gigs. The first memory to 8000 MHz and a second memory in the 9000 MHz, only second to very few where sold. And here comes with GDDR5X, which was previously only GTX 1080 and 1080 Ti. One would assume that the GTX 1060 frequency is 10000 MHz, which would be logical. But here came the card Palit GTX 1060 GamingPro OC+ and it turned out that the frequency of 8800 MHz. And it’s kind of weird. I think the situation is as follows. This memory — rejection, not able to operate at 11-12 GHz, that is not suitable for older Nvidia models. In addition, such as this version of GTX is not based on 1060 GPU GP106, and senior GP104. Which in this case, apparently, also a rejection of part of the idle cores. Here’s how I got the “new” version, which is no better than the old one.

  • In 2020, Europe will close the last factory, which produces computer equipment. The Fujitsu factory in Augsburg produces laptops and data storage systems. Production will move to Japan because of what the work will lose about 1,500 people in Germany.
  • Soon the market will be one huge monitor more. Asus is preparing the ROG Strix model XG49VQ with curved panel 32:9. Resolution — 3840 x 1080 pixels. I think special differences from other such monitors will not be as these panels only produce one company.
