    Dubai Airshow takes off with Emirates’ US$15.1b Boeing buy

    THE biennial Dubai Airshow opened yesterday with hometown long-haul carrier Emirates making a US$15.1 billion buy of American-made Boeing 787-10 Dreamliners, as the world’s biggest defense companies promoted their weapons amid heightened tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran.

    Other airlines also are taking part, but missing from the trade show this year is one of the region’s largest long-haul carriers, Qatar Airways, amid diplomatic fallout between Qatar and four Arab nations.

    The Boeing announcement came after over an hour and a half of delays by Emirates amid rumors of a possible Airbus sale involving its A380 aircraft, a major workhorse for the airline. Journalists asked Emirates CEO and Chairman Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum about Boeing’s European competitor Airbus, specifically its A350.
    “We were comparing the two apples,” he said, but found that the Boeing 787 is “the best option” for Emirates “given its maintenance and so on.”

    eGPU Tests Show Big Gains For MacBook Pros, Courtesy of AMD’s RX Vega

    For the past few years, AMD has worked on a new generation of external GPU technology that would use Thunderbolt 3 and offer a better experience. This push got a major boost when Apple announced back in June that the MacBook Pro line would support this functionality. eGPU support is still being built into macOS High Sierra, but it’s now in a sufficient state for testing.

    9to5 Mac took a Mantiz Venus MZ-02 chassis for a spin to find out what kind of performance upgrade Mac users might expect from adopting a high-end GPU. The results are early — hardware isn’t properly identified, and the author may have made a mistake in his hardware configurations, given that he tested Rocket League with vertical sync enabled. While that’s a reasonable option when it comes to how you personally prefer to handle V-sync, it permanently caps performance of any solution at the maximum refresh rate of the monitor. If your GPU can push 500fps and you lock your frame rate to 60Hz, 60fps is all you’re going to get.

    But, with that caveat in place, we can at least say the RX Vega 64 retains enough of its raw performance to smash through what the MacBook Pro 13-inch is capable of delivering. Unigine Heaven isn’t a great test these days — it’s old and synthetic — but it does show a MacBook Pro 13-inch barely breaking 10fps on its own compared with a smooth 65fps for the Vega 64.



    Again, early driver support and imperfect hardware detection makes it clear that it’s still early days to be running out to bet on eGPU performance in Apple systems, but the long-term trend is positive. The chassis in question is expensive, at $400, but includes a power supply, can charge the MacBook Pro while gaming, and has SSD mounting brackets, USB 3.0 and gigabit Ethernet support, and a 550W power supply.

    Digital use to transform China economy

    THE increasing adoption of digitalization in China could lead to a dramatic transformation of the Chinese economy, according to a latest report by McKinsey Global Institute.

    Creative destruction would sweep across almost all economic sectors and enhance efficiency as well as boosting productivity, which would eventually boost the global competitiveness of Chinese companies, it said in the “Digital China” report released yesterday.

    “The creative destruction brought by digital technologies is likely to be more rapid and on a relatively larger scale in China because of inefficiencies in traditional sectors and massive potential for commercialization. Digitization can make China’s economy more dynamic, and enable more Chinese businesses to compete globally and even export “Made In China” digital business models,” said McKinsey Global Institute senior fellow Jeongmin Seong.

    Post NEIGHBOURHOOD HELP Android Apps

    NEIGHBOURHOOD HELP
    _________________________


    Neighbourhood Help is a social app that brings communities closer together, and in the upfront happening and assist each subsidiary in the period of emergencies. A community can be an organization of families vigorous in a street, shop owners, little towns, retirement or gated communities, apartments, or anywhere an organization of people or families to your liking to promote each new.

    By using this app, you will be practiced to easily and suddenly have enough money an opinion each adherent of the group, taking into account the easily reached shove of a button, that you have a Critical or Medical Emergency requiring the groups immediate protection.

    The unique feature in the app is that you pre-photograph album an Emergency statement that your organization members will hear as soon as one of the emergency buttons is pressed. It personalizes the emergency, and your group members will know who has requested instruction and the location of the emergency.

    Critical Emergency (Non-medical)

    The first button is a Critical Emergency that you press later you require the quick reference from the community or energy due to a Critical Emergency. A Critical Emergency can add taking place a flare in the quarters, an intruder in or just about your dwelling, a domestic issue, etc.

    Medical Emergency

    The second button is a Medical Emergency that you press when you require the sudden recommend from the community or action due to a Medical Emergency. There are various reasons you may need to use this button where you may not take demonstration up opinion an approach to the right of right of entry emergency services directly from being incapacitated, unable to speak, etc.

    This app will have enough money some innocent intimates of mind to people who may be busy alone, communities who what more control in their neighborhood, and may restrict or minimize the intensity of the emergency.

    AMD Has Cut the Performance of Some RX 560 GPUs



    When AMD launched the RX 560 GPU, as an upgrade to the older RX 460, it upgraded the specs of the card slightly. Unlike the RX 580 and RX 570, which retained their GPU cores, texture units, and ROP configurations and simply targeted significantly higher clock speeds, the RX 560 actually changed the core configuration from 896:56:16 (RX 460) to 1024:64:16. Now, AMD has apparently changed its RX 560 configuration without giving any sign they actually did so. The RX 560 is now selling in an 896-core configuration; we’re assuming it’s the same 896:56:16 configuration as the RX 460.

    To be perfectly clear: We don’t approve of or condone this practice. It’s not unusual for GPUs to be sold in different memory configurations, but some companies, like VisionTek, don’t even list the core count on their RX 560s on their own product pages. A sufficiently high base clock and turbo boost could compensate for the loss of the texture mapping units and GPU cores, but that doesn’t seem to be what’s happened here.

    It would be one thing if these GPUs were confined to the bottom of the market, or restricted to 2GB configurations, but they aren’t. Browsing Newegg shows plenty of Radeon RX 560s for sale in both 896 and 1,024-core configurations, including an Asus RX 560 with 896 cores for a whopping $140. (There’s an Asus RX 560 that shows on Newegg’s product page as costing $166, but when you click through it’s priced at $129).

    What’s the Best Processor for PC Gaming?



    Choosing the best processor for PC gaming is a rather more complex proposition than it seems at first glance. After all, “best” is not a single metric. The simplest way for us to help you decide would be to link our Core i7-8700K (See on Amazon) review and leave a two-word caption: “This one.” But simply picking the most expensive and/or fastest processor a company offers for consumer desktop PCs, without any coherent rationale behind the choice, ultimately wouldn’t answer the question.

    The truth is Intel and AMD offer a fairly wide range of CPUs at different price points, clock speeds, and capabilities. “Best,” for our purposes, is not defined solely as “fastest,” but contains some performance-per-dollar weighting as well. This is especially true in games, which often don’t scale well above four cores and almost never take advantage of Hyper-Threading. And as for AMD, the company’s Ryzen architecture, which debuted in March of this year, is worth serious consideration. Let’s break down our favorite choices for each company.
