NASA reported that June 24 will be a rocket launch SpaceX Falcon Heavy with some two dozen satellites. The launch is scheduled for 6 a.m. Moscow time (11 nights Eastern time USA). The rocket will be lifted from the complex. Kennedy in Florida. The start is mainly carried out maintenance tasks of the Ministry of defense, but will also include four scientific missions of NASA. The Agency stated that the test under the new program will help in the future to improve the design of spacecraft and their characteristics. SpaceX Falcon Heavy in one of the previous runs
According to the rating companies WPP and Kantar, the most valuable brand in the world was Amazon. It is noteworthy that during the year the value of the brand increased by 52 %, reaching $of 315.5 billion, This means that Amazon pushed Google and Apple from the top of the ranking, where they remained for 12 years. Second place in the annual rating of the most expensive brands BrandZ, which is created by advertising company WPP and research Agency Millward Kantar, Apple is valued at $309,5 billion Closes the three leaders of Google, which was valued at $309 billion.
As previously reported, today was the official presentation of the new smart watches, Xiaomi Amazfit Verge 2, which represent a good alternative to the more expensive counterparts. The device is Packed in a Zirconia ceramic casing, which is complemented by leather strap, giving the new product a more stylish look. The developers equipped the novelty with a round AMOLED-display with a diagonal of 1.39 inches which has a resolution of 454 × 454 pixels. The display supports multiple mapping options of the dial, and from mechanical damages it is protected by special tempered glass. From moisture and dust the gadget is protected in accordance with the international standard IP68.
Today one of the main users of LTO tapes for long-lasting and relatively inexpensive storage of digital archives have become producers of films and TV shows. The tape can simply be put on the shelf and use the record only when necessary. For example, if you need to do updated (remastered) version of the film. To store it all on hard disks is possible only on a relatively short-lived RAID arrays with constant fabulous electricity bills. And everything was more or less stable, while Sony and Fujifilm ― two today the sole manufacturer of tapes LTO ― started a lawsuit over the rights to patents on the production technology of ribbons.

Samsung has unveiled its new gaming monitor, called the Samsung C27RG5. The novelty, according to the manufacturer, is the first curved monitor with a refresh rate of 240 Hz. New monitor built on a 27-inch curved panel type VA with a resolution of Full HD (1920 × 1080 pixels). Of course, it's not the highest resolution for such diagonal, but due to its high frequency of 240 Hz monitor Samsung C27RG5 more likely to be interesting to fans of shooters and other games where the most important are high FPS and not the resolution.
Tonight, along with 16-core processor Ryzen 9 3950X and Radeon RX 5700 series, AMD also introduced three new technologies designed to improve the performance of most of these graphics accelerators. We are talking about technology FidelityFX, Image Sharpening and Radeon Anti-Lag. The first two technologies are quite similar in essence, but differ in implementation. And FidelityFX, and Image Sharpening is designed to improve image clarity in a variety of games. That is, these technologies are designed to remove or at least reduce the intensity of that "soap", so hated by many players. It is noted that the use of these technologies has almost no effect on the performance of graphics cards.
Network sources report that the line of gaming smartphones Vivo iQOO may soon be replenished with another representative. We are talking about the device iQOO Youth Edition (iQOO Lite), some details of which became known. According to recently appeared on the Internet image, the new model will be based on Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. In addition to ample performance of the processor, the device will get 6 GB of RAM and a built-in hard drive 128 GB. The autonomy provided by battery capacity of 4000 mAh.
In connection with the return flight to the moon in a road map for National management of the USA on Aeronautics and space research (NASA) seems quite appropriate that portion of the story also returns, as astronomers were able to find a long lost module "Snoopy" Apollo 10 mission. This module, named after the cartoon dog Snoopy, was used by the Agency during the mission of Apollo 10, the purpose of which was to conduct all operations necessary for the implementation of landing a man on the moon, except for the final stage. Without the mission, Apollo 10 would not be successful in the lunar mission Apollo 11.
The large number of modules back camera installed now serial smartphone, is five — we are talking about Nokia 9 PureView, launched in February this year. Other flagships such as the Samsung Galaxy S10+ or Huawei P30 Pro, can boast a maximum of four cameras. However, Sony apparently plans to continue the race for the number. According to blogger Max J. (@Samsung_News_), the Japanese manufacturer is preparing to release a mobile phone model equipped with a six-fold rear PV panel. This image does not reflect the real design of the future smartphone Sony Xperia with camera gear
Global astronomical software Breakthrough Watch and the European southern Observatory (ESO) announced the holding of the first observations using the latest receiver NEAR on the Very Large Telescope (VLT). Tool NEAR, or Near Earths AlphaCen in the Region, is designed to search for exoplanets in neighboring star system of alpha Centauri. And we are talking about objects located in the "habitat" of their stars. In other words, such planets could theoretically contain water in liquid form — and it can create conditions for the development of life.
South Korea was one of the first countries, which started commercial use of networks of the fifth generation. High demand for smartphones with support for 5G and aggressive promotion strategy of doing their job. Network sources report that this week the number of users of 5G networks in South Korea will exceed 1 million people. Recall that commercial use of 5G networks in South Korea began in April of this year. Statistics say that in the middle of last week the number of users of 5G networks is approximately equal to 800 000 people. Since then, the number of users has reached 900 000 people, and this week will exceeds the level of 1 million subscribers.
As expected, today AMD has officially unveiled its hybrid processors for desktop systems of new generation. Novelties are members of the family of Picasso, which until then was only mobile APU. In addition, they will be the Junior model among the chips Ryzen 3000 at the moment. So, desktop PC AMD, so far, only two new models of hybrid processors: Ryzen Ryzen 3200G 3 and 5 3400G. Both of the chip include four core architecture Zen+ and the older model also has support for SMT, that is, the ability to work on eight threads. New hybrid AMD processors are made using 12-nm process.
Anticipating the event Horizon of the Next AMD Gaming, Intel tried very hard to convey to your competitor's desire to compete in gaming performance, clearly doubting that the new desktop processor family, Ryzen 3000 have the chance to surpass "world's best gaming CPU" Core i9-9900K. However, AMD decided to answer this call and through his presentation showed the results of testing the flagship models Ryzen third generation in some, mainly network games. The slides presented by the Executive Director of AMD Lisa su (Lisa Su), leaves no doubt: AMD believes that Intel is groundless, and the crown could go to her chips, as they are able, if not to circumvent, at least not to yield to the solutions of a competitor of the same class in real problems. Thus...
With the Development of processors and platforms in the framework of the initiative to build new supercomputers at the European components of the international consortium of European Processor Initiative (EPI). Recently EPI has presented Eurocommission the first processor design, which will be the main for future HPC platforms of local production. The first was model Rhea EP271x with integrated FPGA-matrix. In early specifications were also plans to introduce more and ARM cores, but their presence (or absence) is not reported. Mass production of the new car will start later, and the first machine based on Rhea EP271x should appear in 2021. In a few years, is expected to achieve exaflops level of performance, that is, to compete with the American and Chinese...
