Happy Monday! It's a long weekend, but there's too much technology you need to know on May 27, 2019, from the DGiT Daily newsletter.

1. The big news from Computex: Stop buying a new laptop

Computex living in Taiwan the event for the latest and hottest in the world of computer. While smartphones are not forgotten, the focus is really on laptop, desktop and server technology, and especially the internals that drive these devices.

Given it's a holiday, if you just read one thing, it's like this: If you're thinking about buying a laptop or computer, wait until the week is up To discover all the new devices and how much the new technology will work out.

On the details …

What that means:

  • Many of the major announcements and keynotes at Computex happen before the show floor is open.
  • We have already announced Intel, AMD, NVIDIA, Qualcomm, Arm, and more new technology.
  • The exciting thing for us is that much of this new hardware technology is being announced, but then an armada of devices is being made available within days or weeks with the new technology.
  • For example, NVIDIA has just announced that its powerful Quadro RTX 5000 graphic hardware was purchased for laptops, and announced NVIDIA RTX Studio, a program that certifies laptops that can handle Pro creative loads or games.
  • Straight away, one block of companies announced new laptops that include the new silicon and meet the standards. First, Razer with new Razer Blade 15 and Razer Blade Pro 17 models are completed with 4K OLED screen and the Quadro RTX 5000 – although the final price and availability are not yet known.
  • We know the June issue for the new RTX hardware will also come from ASUS, Dell, HP, MSI, Gigabyte and Acer. So keep on seeing what's coming. But expect NVIDIA RTX Studio certification, specifications like 32GB RAM, and a series of computers focused on creators.

Creators are excited:

  • David Imel from the Android government, on the ground at Computex, told me a YouTuber and a high-end creator, and he's excited about these new designs:
  • "Apple has been used to Pro users for quite some time. And while the laptops are making progress, we are now seeing a real focus of computer makers to design hardware specifically designed for creators. bring, "Imel wrote to me from Taiwan.
  • "From hardware to software, these creator-focused devices see even 100+ creative apps optimizing GPU, including Adobe Premiere, Lightroom, DaVinci Resolve, and more."
  • "I want one so bad"

Intel and AMD news:

  • Intel ran the ground and announced his 10th gene chip "Ice Lake". Its first 10nm processor was manufactured in volume.
  • Apart from being higher and faster, it also supports support for both Thunderbolt 3 and WiFi 6 802.11ax, support for AI processing, while the graphics processing engine has given a powerful leap to games without & # 39; n Dedicated GPU to handle better. It won't be enough for hardcore gamers, but it probably works for casualties.
  • Follow AMD, The introduction of new third-generation Ryzen processes, its first 7nm desk slides. The need to know is that AMD's 12-core, 24-wire Ryzen 9 3900x chip, which at least matches Intel's latest generation Core i9 9920X chipset, but at less than half the price: from $ 499 , compared to Intel's $ 1,189 and above. Oof.
  • AMD also announced that its first "Navi" graphics processor units will be the AMD Radeon RX 5700 series. Navi is the code name for AMD's next-gen graphic architecture.
  • Remember that Sony has chosen AMD and its new Navi silicon to work together for the inside of the PlayStation 5.
  • On June 10, we find full details at an AMD launch.
  • Remember when I said wait until the week is out? Well, it's probably best to wait until June 10 to find out what to do next.

What else?

  • Poor also announced new CPU and GPU architecture: Poor Cortex-A77 continues high-level CPU performance, while the new flagship Mali-G77 GPU is the beginning of a new graphic architecture, now Valhall (not A tap, no & nbsp; in & nbsp; in Valhalla in modern Scandinavian spelling).
  • Android Authority technical writer Rob Triggs has Five things you need to know about ARM's work, including new processing performance, major changes to the GPU, while also being more firmly whispered about machine learning equipment.
  • It's all a little high level – but it's the CPUs and GPUs that will be built to run your smartphone for as little as six months, if you don't. Get iPhone.
  • Expect to be in December, and in a new smart phone early in 2020, in the physical form of the similar Qualcomm in a Snapdragon 865 (or whatever it is called), as the past history of the exemption schedules cease.
