Intel Core i9 12900K is available in China months ahead of launch

Published

Speculated for release in October, the Alder Lake processor promises the 12th. The big difference of the new family is the use of a hybrid architecture that combines high-performance cores with low-power cores.

Official details are still missing and far from the release time, the top-of-the-line chip in the series, the Core i9 12900K, was sold at very high prices in China this week. Units of the company’s supposedly mid-range B660 motherboards are also sold along with the component, albeit with some restrictions.

The discovery was made by bloggers and leakers @Yuuki_AnSwhere the processor sold for 8,100 yuan (approx. R $ 6,520, in direct conversion) and the motherboard of an unknown model for 7,400 yuan (approx. R $ 5,960). The chip in question is still a qualification sample (QS), a kind of extended test unit close to the product to be marketed, but not yet completed.

Although frightening, the high prices should not represent the values ​​that are demanded by Intel at the launch and should have a good reason – the Core i9 12900K is not sold in units, but in many 100 chips, another reason for the leaker is the CPU not bought apart from the prices themselves.

However, if the components sold are legitimate, it shouldn’t be long before benchmark numbers start popping up across the internet that at least give us an idea of ​​what to expect from Intel’s next generation.

According to the leaks, the chips in the series should bring a significant increase in performance by using P-Cores cores, also known under the code name Golden Cove, for high performance and E-Cores, code name Gracemont, for low consumption.

The desktop range has the Core i9 12900K as the front runner, which supports 8 P cores with 16 threads with 8 E cores, a total of 16 cores and 24 threads. The clocks reach 5.3GHz and there is 30MB of L3 cache with an estimated 125W consumption, but it can reach 228W during heavy workloads.

According to alleged leak tests, the chip would bring a sufficiently large leap in performance to place it with a remarkable 10% lead over the 16-core Ryzen 9 5950X.

Material inspired by running shoes can protect buildings from earthquakes

Published

on

By

Researchers at the Queensland University of Technology in Australia have developed a new material that is able to absorb energy and protect buildings from damage from impact. The inspiration came from observing the compound used in running shoes and viscoelastic foam pillows, NASA’s famous pillow.

The 3D printed product has a synetic absorption capacity that can withstand the impact force of a car at a constant speed of 60 km / h. This bioplastic mimics the behavior of auxetic materials – objects that expand transversely when pulled out and contract transversely when squeezed.

“Instead of flattening out when stretched or swelling when compressed, auxetic materials expand or contract in all directions at the same time, making them very energy-absorbing and resilient,” explains materials engineer Tatheer Zahra, first author of the study.

Because auxetic materials available on the market are expensive, the researchers recreated the geometric shapes of these materials with a 3D printer. The resulting product has sufficient strength to replace steel and fiber reinforced polymer networks commonly used in building construction.

A sample of this 3D-printed material weighing just 180 grams can withstand a force of around 2,500 kg in any direction when it shrinks and absorbs an energy of around 260 joules without showing any structural damage or significant changes to the original shape.

“On a normal scale, the connections embedded in these auxetic 3D geometries could theoretically withstand large shocks or impact energies caused by gas explosions, earthquakes, wind forces, and vehicle collisions,” adds Zahra.

Other advantages

Incorporating the new material into conventional mortar, for example, would protect the auxetic geometric shapes from microorganisms and temperatures above 60 ° C, so that they last almost the entire life of a structure without damage.

3D printing also simplifies material modeling and makes it easy to choose the size or design of each part before running an architectural project with various structures with base load and stress requirements that are used in civil engineering.

“Bioplastics offer a more sustainable, low-carbon alternative to fiber-reinforced plastic or other non-biodegradable polymers. In addition, it is more economical than using available auxetic fabrics, which can cost up to US $ 400 (around R $ 2,200 at current price) per square meter, ”concludes Tatheer Zahra.

Humor fans can now mark the agenda: the new season of It’s Cabral’s fault already have an appointment for the journey. The national comedy with Thiago Ventura, Rafael Portugal, Fabiano Cambota, Nando Viana and Rodrigo Marques starts this Monday (25) in Comedy Central in its tenth season with a rhythm of party and celebration.

Because the latest season marks the show’s five-year anniversary. Comedians have been taking part in this roundtable since 2016 with discussions, games and debates that are not always that serious, but always guarantee a good laugh. And to celebrate the special date, the new episodes will receive unprecedented paintings and receive some special guests.

So much so that the opening chapter introduces the singers Marília Mendonça, Maiara and Maraísa, who lead the As Patroas project. So the trio enters the game to tell stories and partake in the dynamic that creates the irreverent and funny style of. shapes It’s Cabral’s fault.

the promise of Comedy Central is that each of the new season’s episodes has the presence of special guests, but it has not been revealed who they will be. But that doesn’t detract from the shine of the quintet, which is still the big star of the program – and especially the turmoil between them.

The tenth season of It’s Cabral’s fault Premiere at Comedy Central next Monday (25th), from 10 p.m.

How much is a burnt Bugatti Chiron worth? You will not believe

Published

on

By

With a value of around 3.96 million US dollars (approx. 21.98 million R $ at current price), the Bugatti Chiron is one of the fastest, most expensive and most sought-after cars in the world. And its price is absurd, even if it suffers an unexpected attack and is ultimately damaged by fire. Like this?

The curious story took place in the US and was reported by the Royal Exotic Cars YouTube channel and just went viral with the purchase and restoration of damaged supercars. The October 9 post already has more than 223,000 views. And why you will understand now.

As Houston and Tony said in a relaxed conversation, the Bugatti Chiron in question belonged to a hip-hop singer and was a victim of vandalism. Three Molotov cocktails were thrown under the hood and the damage to the super machine was considerable.

The body, windows, seats, instrument panel and part of the wiring were affected, a scenario that led to the insurance company that owns the policy ordering the popular “total loss” of the Bugatti. And what does that mean? Simply put, this means that even if someone is willing to spend a fortune buying and renovating the sports car, they cannot drive it and display it. So as the americans would say what’s the point (or, What is the logic ?, in good ole Portuguese).

It’s for sale … and it’s not cheap

Well, despite the little spoiler we informed that the Bugatti will no longer be drivable even if it is repaired, it is for sale on the Copart Insurance website. And the price to get the damaged sports car from the yard to someone else’s garage is incredibly high.

According to the YouTubers, who told the story of the world, the channel tried to make the purchase itself, but was shocked by the amount demanded by the insurer: $ 1.2 million, the equivalent of R $ 6.6 million.

The broadcaster’s idea was to spend about a third of the amount on the purchase, win it back, and resell it with a good profit margin. However, the “plan” failed because of two simple words in the insurer’s final report: total loss. A little happy ending to a very curious story, don’t you think?
