Intel Core i3-8121U in Lenovo Ideapad 330 laptop

The Chinese manufacturer Lenovo, has just introduced its new Ideapad 330 cheap laptop. This new model of the manufacturer will be the first, globally, to mount an Intel Cannon Lake processor. The Intel Core i3-8121U is part of the new processors that will be manufactured using the troublesome 10nm node that Intel has been developing these years ago. It seemed that they were reluctant to go to the market, but we can already see that Intel has solved the manufacturing problems for the 10 nm node. At least enough to start manufacturing some processors of its range of laptops. However, we are scared enough that Intel has not officially introduced these new processors with Intel Cannon Lake kernel.

ASRock Fatal1ty X470 Gaming-ITX / ac: new motherboard for small gaming computers

ASRock Fatal1ty X470 Gaming-ITX ac review

The motherboard manufacturer ASRock has just presented its first gaming motherboard, in mini ITX format, for the AMD X470 chipset. The new ASRock Fatal1ty X470 Gaming-ITX / ac is a very compact motherboard but it has all the necessary additions to make it a good model for that segment of small computers. With the processors with Bulldozer core, few were the brands that dared with the segment of gaming motherboards in mini ITX format. Something that, on the other hand, we consider quite logical, if we consider that the performance in games of these processors, was far from being spectacular. In those years, the brand that “split the cod” was Intel, and for its processors yes that many motherboards came out in this format.

AMD Radeon Vega 20 benchmarks

The first results of the next AMD Radeon Vega 20 graphics card have been filtered in the 3DMark11 benchmark. This new graphical core is a reduction in the manufacturing node of the current AMD Radeon Vega 10 graphics cards to the 7 nm node, with some improvements that would help them gain some performance. We can not deny that the current AMD Radeon RX Vega graphics cards have been a blessing / curse mix for AMD. Its performance has always been far from what users expected from the beginning of them. However, for AMD the ballot has been saved by the excellent performance of its graphical core AMD Radeon Vega 10 in computing operations, which has led it to become one of the most widely used models in cryptocurrency mining.
