Formally presenting the processor Ryzen 9 3950X in the middle of the year, AMD at first promised to begin sales in September, but by the end of the third quarter, said that the new 16 cores will hit the market in November. What factors contributed to the adoption of such decisions has been discussed in the news, but the official comments on the subject was predictably miserly. Today took another step processor announcement Ryzen 9 3950X, which last summer was has a price tag "$749", and from this level of AMD over the past few months has gone nowhere. Image source: AMD
State Corporation "Rosatom" launches the project under which is planned the development of the Russian quantum computer. It is also known that the project will be implemented until 2024, and the total volume of financing will amount to 24 billion rubles. To supervise the project office that was formed on the basis of digital block "Rosatom", will be Ruslan Yunusov, previously headed the development of a "road map" for quantum technologies in the Federal program "Digital economy". In addition, the project office will work to attract support in the industrial sector. First of all, we are talking about the companies that may be interested in removing competitive advantages quantum platforms.
Consolidated group of scientists from the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) and ETH Zurich (ETH Zurich) has developed micromachines that can be programmed for complex actions. The use of such machines is enormous: from medical, when the micro-robots will carry out operations in the human body, to use in industry, microelectronics, and even as metamaterials. For example, the surface of the object will allow the team to change their properties in a wide range from slippery to rough and water-repellent to wettable.

Despite the fact that newly released processors Core i9-9900KS and so built on selected crystals, some stores began to select and sell those that is able to accelerate better than others. We recently wrote about a similar practice from the us store Silicon Lottery, and then by well-known German enthusiast Roman "der8auer" Hartung (Hartung Roman) selected the best Core i9-9900KS, which are now sold in a German shop CaseKing. Selected models of the Core i9-9900KS here got to the title prefix of "Advanced Edition" and is available in four versions, which differ in the maximum frequency achieved by all cores in the acceleration, and accordingly in price. Available processors, which ensures stable operation when the frequency of all eight cores from 5.0 to 5.3...
According to Japanese news Agency Nikkei, the sanctions Washington could strike at the Dutch manufacturer of equipment for the production of semiconductor company ASML. From three unnamed sources confirmed to the paper that ASML delayed the delivery of EUV scanners, the Chinese company SMIC. The SMIC is China's largest contract manufacturer of chips, and the fourth largest in the world in this area (fifth if you count contract the Samsung). For US sanctions, the manufacturer remains a priority target, because it not only produces the chips for the largest Chinese companies that have come under sanctions Washington, but still wholly supported by government funds in China.
