ASUS + Noctua = quietest RTX 3070 on the market!

Published

on

Apparently, ASUS joined Noctua to bring an RTX 3070 graphics card to the market a little differently than usual. We are talking about a card with an efficient cooling solution, but above all very quiet. After all, this is Noctua’s branding image. Well … that and the fact that I love the brown color.

ASUS and Noctua have teamed up to create a super-quiet RTX 3070. to develop

So seeing ASUS partnering with other companies isn’t big news, as we’ve seen boards from the global PC giant with water coolers from EK in the past. But with Noctua?

well after EEC (Eurasian Economic Commission), ASUS has already registered a model called “RTX3070-8G-NOTCUA”. But that’s really all we know, at least for now. There are still no big details about the cooling system of this “special board”. Or whether this will be the only version released as part of the partnership between the two companies.

When asked when asked, ASUS said that there wasn’t much that could be said about the new products, but that the announcement date was getting closer. It is important to keep an eye on what is to come.

A notice: The above image is just a rendering. It cannot have anything to do with the final product.

What do you think of this partnership? Have you been able to buy a board with this type of design? Please let us know what you think in the comments below.

Inexpensive fuels. Is everything really equal to the liter?

Published

on

By

Given the current fuel price crisis in Portugal, to tell the truth, much is due to the heavy tax burden we have on our shoulders in Portugal, although it is a consequence of events on European territory. We have very good people who choose to fill up with petrol or diesel, and only at “low-cost” stations!

Which begs a question … What are “low cost” gas stations and fuels?

Well, we have the pumps from as an example Prius, from Intermarche, gives Auchan, from sweet drop, etc … That fuel is sold a little below the ‘normal’ market price.

That is, the term inexpensive It deserves its name because it is cheaper and because it is sold outside the networks of large gas stations such as Galp, Repsol, BP, Cepsa and others.

In case you didn’t know: All fuels sold in Portugal are refined in Sines (formerly also in Matosinhos). The same refinery that supplies Galp, BP or Cepsa also supplies Prio or the hypermarket pumps.

In short, fuels without additives (Simple), which are the most commercialized fuels in Portugal, are all the same. In addition, it must also be mentioned that all petrol stations on national soil are properly checked.

So are ‘low-cost’ fuels bad for our cars or is everything tailored to the liter? It is precisely on this subject that we have a curious study by Deco.

Inexpensive fuels. Is everything really equal to the liter?

In case you didn’t know, Deco has a very interesting study on the use of ‘premium’ fuels and ‘low cost’ fuels with the always famous title “Everything is the same as the liter“. (shortcut)

Because according to the above information and the results of the same study, everything is actually the same as with the liter!

We are talking about a study based on 4 types of diesels which are a less refined fuel than gasoline and therefore more likely to cause problems for injectors, filters, etc.

However, the fuels used in the study were the market leaders at the time.

  • Galp Gforce
  • Galp Hi-Energy
  • Jumbo (now Auchan)
  • Intermarche

How was the test done?

Well, Deco got their hands on four identical cars, new, and each of them used only one of those fuels and covered 12,000 kilometers during the test.

The idea was very simple! After the 12,000 kilometers driven in the four cars, everything was dismantled to see the effects of each fuel on the main components of the car.

In addition, the average autonomy of each of these cars was also noted to see if the promises of “more KMs” were really true or not.

Conclusions?

No significant differences were found within the engine or within the tank. In the area of ​​consumption, there was only a difference of 0.13 liters per 100 km between the best and worst case. A negligible difference, as incorrect tire pressure alone can have an impact of 5% on fuel consumption.

In short, the promises of lower consumption, fewer pollutant emissions and more engine protection with future savings are nothing more than pure marketing, according to Deco. To invoice the end user a further ten cents per liter.

Besides, what do you think of all of this? Do you agree with these observations and studies? Let us know what you think in the comments box below.

OneDrive: solve synchronization problems with Windows!

Published

OneDrive syncs with Windows 10 and Windows 11 to back up our files in the cloud. However, sometimes there can be issues that prevent OneDrive sync from working properly. A reset can solve all situations.

OneDrive: solve synchronization problems with Windows!

OneDrive works great, but like other apps, nothing is bug-free. Although they are rare, they sometimes run into problems and it is even necessary to reset the app to fix the syncing problems with Windows.

Am i losing files?

No. Everything that is stored on your PC stays on your PC. Likewise, what is on OneDrive remains on OneDrive. What happens is that existing connections are terminated. In fact, the main purpose of resetting OneDrive is to disconnect and reconnect. However, don’t worry because this process isn’t that complicated.

But before we reset, we can try something else.

If you’re using Windows 10, right-click the OneDrive icon and choose the Close OneDrive option. If you are using Windows 11 there is only one more step required. So right click, then click Help and Settings and choose the option to Close OneDrive.

A window will appear asking if you really want to close OneDrive. Just click the Close OneDrive button.

To reopen OneDrive just use Windows search and write OneDrive. After the right hand side, just click Open and that’s it. The method is the same for Windows 10 and 11.

If that doesn’t solve the problem then we really need to roll back.

The process is very simple. First enter and in the Windows search. Then click Open on the right.

Put after the run window

%localappdata%MicrosoftOneDriveonedrive.exe /reset

Then just click OK.

Then OneDrive will be closed. Then we just go to Windows Search and write OneDrive and run that app again.

However, OneDrive is available for mobile platforms. You can find it in the Play Store here.

Gmail just got a free upgrade! Already found?

Many thought that due to all of the communication platforms we currently have, emails were going to end. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth. E-mail continues and with it platforms such as Gmail. In fact, it is one of the most powerful email systems out there. It’s not all perfect, however, despite the fact that Google is constantly striving to improve what doesn’t work well. By the way, behold, Gmail was eligible for a free upgrade that saved us from serious errors!

Gmail just got a free upgrade! Already found?

When we send an email without the promised attachment, it can be quite annoying, much worse than sending a message with sensitive content to the wrong person. Especially when it’s a colleague. Such mistakes can be embarrassing, but they can also cost the company we work for, especially if we make a mistake and inadvertently share personal information with a third party.

It’s true that we have broadcasts on some platforms, including Gmail. However, this doesn’t always work.

Now, Gmail is going to implement a few ways to keep us from being too fooled about sending emails to multiple people at the same time. For example, if we now add someone to the recipient list, their email addresses or names will also appear with their profile pictures. That way, we can see who we’ve added instantly and more visually.

In the meantime, the people we have already added will be flagged for whom there is no way to send the message to the same person twice.

But there is more news. It is possible to have a special name for people in our bucket list and those are the names that other people will see. In other words, it’s a way of masking the real names.

In addition to what I mentioned, those who use Gmail at work have even more advantages. This is because people outside of the company are flagged so that work information is not sent to outside people. At least by mistake.

These messages are already reaching all users.

Remember, the Gmail app is available to those who use it on mobile devices on Load game and further Appstore.
