NVIDIA Launches GeForce RTX 3050 and RTX 3050 Ti for Laptops
Coinciding with today’s launch of Intel’s Tiger Lake-H CPUs for high performance laptops, NVIDIA is also using the occasion to launch their latest lineup of laptop video cards, the GeForce RTX 3050 and RTX 3050 Ti For Laptops. Based on NVIDIA’s newest and smallest Ampere GPU, GA107, the RTX 3050 series finally rounds out the rest of NVIDIA’s laptop offering, introducing a mobile video card that’s better suited for mid-power systems, and cheaper than RTX 3060 to boot. Laptops featuring the new RTX 3050 video adapters will be available today, with all of the major vendors set to ship laptops using NVIDIA’s latest laptop adapter in short order.
NVIDIA’s xx50 tier of laptop video cards has traditionally been the company’s high-volume/low-...
1 jIntel Launches 11th Generation Core Tiger Lake-H: Eight Core 10nm Mobile Processors
Ever since the launch of the first series of Intel Core 11th Generation Tiger Lake processors aimed at the ‘U-series’ 15 W market, Intel has teased us that there was another design being produced in the wings. While the Tiger Lake-U was built for portability, battery life, and integrated graphics, the Tiger Lake-H series would double the cores, and be the partner for premium mobile gaming as well as on-the-go muscle. Today is the launch of this new platform, and Intel is promoting over 1 million Tiger Lake-H processors shipped to partners and 80 devices coming to market.
1 jUsing a PCIe Slot to Install DRAM: New Samsung CXL.mem Expansion Module
In the computing industry, we’ve lived with PCIe as a standard for a long time. It is used to add any additional features to a system: graphics, storage, USB ports, more storage, networking, add-in cards, storage, sound cards, Wi-Fi, oh did I mention storage? Well the one thing that we haven’t been able to put into a PCIe slot is DRAM – I don’t mean DRAM as a storage device, but memory that actually is added to the system as useable DRAM. Back in 2019 a new CXL standard was introduced, which uses a PCIe 5.0 link as the physical interface. Part of that standard is CXL.mem – the ability to add DRAM into a system through a CXL/PCIe slot. Today Samsung is unveiling the first DRAM module specifically designed in this way.
1 jBest Intel Motherboards: May 2021
For users looking for a new Intel motherboard, we have good news! Moving into the middle of Spring we seem to be experiencing wider positive availability of Intel's 500 series motherboards in retail channels. Despite some criticism from media and users, Intel's Rocket Lake processors still provide decent levels of performance, with plenty of features for gamers, content creators, and enthusiasts. There are a wide variety of options for users to select from, not just on current 500 series chipsets, but also in 400-series chipsets. There are also other variables to consider, such as the segment of processor selected by users, which makes all the aforementioned chipsets suitable for both 11th generation and 10th generation processors, and i...
1 jSupermicro: We Put Two 10nm Ice Lake Xeon LGA4189 Sockets on an ATX Motherboard
Usually, when vendors release dual-socket motherboards, this is typically done on larger form factors such as extended ATX (E-ATX) and even larger ones such as SSB-EEB for server form factors. Supermicro looks to buck the trend and has recently listed a pair of Intel motherboards with dual LGA4189 sockets, designed for Intel's latest Ice Lake 3rd Gen Xeon Scalable processors.
Both the Supermicro X12DPL-NT6 and X12DPL-i6 conform to the ATX form factor and have a very similar design. The key metrics include support for two Intel 3rd generation Ice Lake Xeon processors but also eight memory slots between the two, indicating that each processor runs in only quad-channel mode. This is important as some enterprise situations do not require ...
1 jGIGABYTE Z590 Aorus Tachyon Review: Built for SPEED
One of the most unique models on the Z590 chipset is the GIGABYTE Z590 Aorus Tachyon. While it functions as a 'relatively' normal day-to-day motherboard, the main focus is on extreme overlcoking. Building on the design of its previous XOC models, which are part of its long lineage of performance-inspired designs, the Tachyon has just two memory slots that have been designed to shorten the distance between the memory and the CPU for improved latency and overall performance. The PCIe slots are also designed to allow for massive GPU coolers as well as ancilliary power connections for graphics benchmarking. Other features include an extensive toolkit for overclockers, plenty of premium controllers such as 2.5 Gb Ethernet, Wi-Fi 6E, and a pre...
1 jAMD's Wi-Fi 6E Module: The RZ608
One of the elements of building a complete end-to-end solution means having all the components under one brand. The complexity of modern gadgets means that having everything made under one company is near-on impossible - especially with the wealth of IP and patents in every small segment of the modern electronic device. To facilitate the appearance of uniform branding, companies will often rebrand the components under their own name. Introducing the AMD RZ608, a Wi-Fi 6E 2x2 wireless module!
2 jIntel’s Integrated Graphics Mini-Review: Is Rocket Lake Core 11th Gen Competitive?
In the last few months we have tested the latest x86 integrated graphics options on the desktop from AMD, with some surprising results about how performant a platform with integrated graphics can be. In this review, we’re doing a similar test but with Intel’s latest Rocket Lake Core 11th Gen processors. These processors feature Intel’s Xe-LP graphics, which were touted as ‘next-generation’ when they launched with Intel’s mobile-focused Tiger Lake platform. However, the version implemented on Rocket Lake has fewer graphics units, slower memory, but a nice healthy power budget to maximize. Lo, Intel set forth for battle.
4 jThe Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 15-Inch Review: Refreshing Ryzen
Over the years, Microsoft’s Surface team has become quite a driver of innovation in the PC space. While the original Surface Pro was mostly just a curio, Microsoft continued to iterate through designs, and eventually found their breakthrough product with the very popular Surface Pro 3 convertible tablet. Since then, Microsoft has been able to further build off of the Surface brand's success with additional and interesting designs, including the Surface Book with its detachable display, the Surface Studio all-in-one, and the Surface Pro X which pushes the Surface Pro design into a new, more modern take on the convertible tablet.
But with a burgeoning brand, Microsoft has also developed some more conservative devices under the Surface fam...

That, along with other more technical improvements, can lead to a decrease in transistor size, enabling the future of semiconductors.

1 hConcept images imagine iOS 15, iPadOS 15 with multi-user support and moreWhat you need to know Apple will likely announce iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 during next month's WWDC event. A new concept imagines what those two updates could offer, including an always-on display. Whether any of this will be part of the updates announced next month, nobody knows. If everything goes according to the usual cadence we can expect Apple to announce iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 during next month's WWDC.

This official London Tube art is getting mercilessly trolled on Twitter
Art is famously subjective.
It divides opinion. What one person may find boring another may find beautiful, and vice versa.
All that being said, a newly unveiled art installation by British artist David Hockney in London certainly seems to have united people.
Commissioned for a city tourism campaign, and revealed on Twitter on Tuesday by London mayor Sadiq Khan, the artworks are on display at Piccadilly Circus Tube station:
Brilliant work from David Hockney in Piccadilly—the first of a series of major art projects we’ve commissioned as part of our brand new #LetsDoLondon campaign. Lots more to come very soon! #DavidHockney pic.twitter.com/djW8BGSNuu

1 hFor more spicy sexts, try sending voice notes
May is National Masturbation Month, and we're celebrating with Feeling Yourself, a series exploring the finer points of self-pleasure.
After many pandemic months of not dating or even meeting people in real life, I missed specific aspects of other humans: banter, shared interests, touch.
