Intel’s just DISTRACTING us!

it’s time for tech news
00:06
you’re used to the names geforce and
00:08
radeon for high performance gaming gpus
00:11
but now we have a confirmed brand for
00:13
intel’s challenger arc or is it a rc i
00:16
can’t tell it’s electric it’s not arc
00:18
but the k the other intel repository of
00:20
cpu specs we’re talking arc with a c
00:23
which is the name team blue chose for
00:25
its chips using the z which is not a z
00:27
it’s an xe high powered gpu or zhpg are
00:31
you confused yet
00:33
well thank you
00:35
well there’s one more term to learn
00:37
alchemist which is the code name for
00:38
intel’s first generation arc gpu or
00:41
arcgpu which is expected to perform in
00:44
the same range as the rtx 3070 but
00:46
probably won’t because nothing can we
00:49
can have nice things my own salt the
00:51
branding will be used for both desktop
00:53
and laptop performance gpus which will
00:55
support modern goodies like dx12
00:57
ultimate ray tracing variable rate
00:59
shading and ai driven super sampling
01:02
super smash bros which sounds similar to
01:04
nvidia’s dlss
01:07
deep learning super smash bros while
01:09
we’re hoping to see intel’s gpu this
01:11
year team blue is now telling us to
01:13
expect them in q1 2022 because of course
01:17
they are you thought earth was done
01:18
being a hell world for for once
01:21
no have you been to the interior of
01:23
british columbia it’s mordor
01:27
don’t go there don’t come here earlier
01:29
this year nvidia launched revised
01:31
versions of their rtx 30 series gpus
01:33
with their ethereum mining performance
01:35
reduced by 50
01:37
thanks to an even more unhackable
01:39
limiter well with ethereum surging
01:41
lately one group of developers behind
01:43
the n and b minor program decided to
01:45
make nvidia eat their words again nb
01:48
miner’s new version boosts 30 series
01:50
gpus to perform at 70 of their max
01:52
potential that’s a 20 difference riley
01:55
games maths
01:57
now weather remains financially viable
01:59
to mine on these clearly not unhackable
02:00
cards will be up to the market but you
02:02
think that nvidia and other tech
02:03
companies would stop calling things
02:05
unhackable it’s like telling linus not
02:07
to drop something now the idea is in his
02:09
head
02:10
you’ve already lost
02:11
don’t don’t pack it if there’s gravity
02:14
it’s droppable the boatloads of bad
02:16
takes on twitter may make your head hurt
02:18
sometimes but some people are actually
02:20
getting real headaches thanks to the
02:22
bird app’s latest redesign the new high
02:25
contrast scheme twitter is using for
02:26
visual elements like follow buttons pops
02:29
so much the denizens of the site are
02:31
reporting eye strain and result in
02:33
headaches really annoying considering
02:35
the high contrast scheme also appears in
02:37
dark mode which is specifically
02:40
designed to be easier on the eyes i like
02:44
living in darkness twitter has released
02:46
a statement saying that they’re tweaking
02:48
the new color scheme hopefully the
02:50
changes roll out to everyone soon or
02:52
discourse may devolve to the point that
02:54
the only response anyone can muster is
02:56
simply tweeting ratio until they pass
02:58
out that’s how they go that’s how i go
03:00
to sleep every night
03:02
i mean unacceptable for a public utility
03:04
like twitter now time for the quick bits
03:06
brought to you by drop and
03:08
marvel who have partnered together to
03:10
bring your favorite superheroes to your
03:12
pc setup with limited edition keycaps
03:15
they don’t sound like that the
03:16
collection features heroes such as
03:18
captain america iron man and black
03:20
panther as well as a set based on the
03:22
movie avengers infinity war clearly the
03:24
best one in the series each set features
03:26
heroic elements such as captain america
03:28
star logo or black panther’s mask so
03:30
bring out your inner hero and pre-order
03:32
your set at the link below that’s my
03:34
origin story keycaps made me super
03:37
quick bits you gotta do better than that
03:41
you need more than dad the us highway
03:43
safety administration is not sexy but
03:46
they are investigating something sexy
03:47
tesla cars crashing into parked
03:49
emergency vehicles ouch with 11 such
03:51
incidents occurring since 2018. one
03:53
death resulted and the investigators
03:55
have already concluded tesla’s autopilot
03:58
or traffic aware cruise control was
04:00
enabled in all cases it seems likely
04:02
that tesla will be required to overhaul
04:04
the way autopilot reminds the driver to
04:06
pay attention because it seems like
04:07
right now it might be more of a
04:09
suggestion tesla hasn’t yet commented
04:11
but its stock is down as a result making
04:14
it a good time for a low hanging
04:16
dogecoin joke new rumors are indicating
04:18
google may announce the pixel 5a as soon
04:20
as tomorrow so far it looks like the
04:22
phone will essentially be a pixel 4 a5g
04:25
with a significantly larger 4 680
04:28
milliamp hour battery so it could be a
04:30
compelling choice if you think having to
04:32
charge your phone is a great injustice
04:36
and get this this phone might even have
04:38
a headphone jack
04:40
whoa
04:41
what an exciting new feature in this
04:43
hell world
04:44
that’s the point
04:47
android 12 has a boatload of new
04:49
features but there’s an interesting one
04:50
that’s been spotted in the latest beta
04:52
called camera switches the idea is to be
04:55
able to use facial expressions to issue
04:57
commands to your phone such as smiling
04:59
to open notifications or opening your
05:01
mouth to scroll oh my god can you
05:04
imagine you’re reading something
05:07
it reads faster
05:10
it should make life easier for folks
05:11
with accessibility issues or people who
05:13
just want to excuse to make faces at
05:15
their phones even more than they already
05:17
do that do the duck face and it takes a
05:19
picture it applies filters we’ve already
05:21
got siri ala
05:23
and google assistant but apparently
05:25
they’re not enough as it looks like sony
05:27
may be throwing its hat into the digital
05:28
assistant ring with something no one
05:30
will use the company is sending out
05:32
surveys to gauge customer response to a
05:33
sonos-based smart voice control system
05:36
which i’m sure millions of customers are
05:37
just itching to buy can i please have
05:40
another ecosystem but the move actually
05:42
does make some sense as google and sony
05:44
are currently facing off in a patent
05:46
lawsuit meaning sony might be keen to
05:47
build its own voice assistant that isn’t
05:49
reliant on google
05:53
and the next big retailer to start
05:54
accepting crypto just might be the
05:56
world’s largest walmart the company is
05:59
looking to hire a crypto product lead
06:00
according to its career site hopefully
06:02
this means they’ll take mainstream
06:04
crypto but maybe we’ll also get a great
06:06
value coin that undercuts the rest of
06:08
the crypto market but with everyday low
06:11
prices
06:12
distributed because everyone can afford
06:14
it
