The Intel 13th generation

The Intel 13th generation laptop can up to 24 CPU cores

The Intel 13th generation, is making available the power from its 13.3rd-gen laptop processors into laptop computers — the 24 CPU cores that are worth. Today at CES on today Intel revealed the Core i9-13980HX, which is the top of its mobile range. 

It comes with 24 processors (a combination of eight Performance cores and 16 efficient cores) and a speed boost of 5.6GHz.

 It’s the latest in Intel’s high-performance HX line which was introduced in the year before as a means to boost the power of more powerful laptops. Intel claims that its latest Core i9 CPU is 11 percent more efficient than the top-of-the-line 12900HK in relation to single-threaded applications, and it’s 49 percent more efficient in multi-threaded work (intensive tasks like encoding videos or 3D graphics).

Intel’s 13th-gen HX line of chips scales down to the Core i5-13450HX with 10 cores (6P 4E) and up to 4.5Ghz speed boost. If you’re looking for higher performance, and aren’t averse to a slight hit in battery power, there’s bound to be an HX-compatible chip in your budget. 

The other Intel 13th-gen line is impressive, too. There are the P series of chips designed to be ultraportables with high performance, can be able to handle as high as 14 cores while the CPUs of the U-series that are low-power are capable of 10 cores (2P 8E) with the i7-1365U.

We weren’t very impressed with Intel’s P-series CPUs previously used for laptops such as that of the The XPS 13 PlusThe performance gains were not significant for the majority of tasks, whereas the impact on battery life was huge. 

It’s good to know that Intel has made some improvements to its latest line-up of. Intel also says that select 13th-gen processors will feature VPU (Vision Processing Unit) AI accelerators, which will help to offload tasks such as blurring the background in video calls.

 The absence the VPU is the important drawback to the Intel-powered Surface Pro 9 (and the biggest benefit for that Arm version) So it’ll be great to see some kind of AI acceleration in the coming year.

Another good delight: New low-end processors. Intel quietly ended the Pentium as well as Celeron branding in the year 2000 — recently we’ve discovered that they’ve been replaced by new N-series chipsthat are called Intel Processor and Intel Core i3.

 These chips are mostly focused on education and other basic computing segments, and are only available with E-cores. 

Intel states that the quad-core N200 processor provides 28 percent more performance in applications and 64 percent more graphics over the previous-gen Pentium Silver N6000. Upgrading to the 8-core i3 N-30 gives an additional 42 percent improvement in performance for applications and 56 percent more graphics. 

The Intel 13th generation

We all would like the 24-core model however, better chips at the lower end can be beneficial to youngsters and others who do not require a ton of power.

Apart from laptops Intel has also announced its latest desktop CPUs at CES. They’ll still have 24 cores, similar to the K series’s enthusiast-level chips however they’ll “only” increase to 5.6GHz speed boost, as opposed to 5.8Ghz. 

The company claims they’re 11 percent faster single-threaded performance , and up to 34 percent more efficient when it comes with multi-threaded work. 13.th-gen chips for desktops will be compatible with 700 and 600-series motherboards.

They’ll be compatible with the option of DDR5 and DDR4 memory, which makes the perfect upgrades for current Intel systems.

NVIDIA delivers GeForce Graphics RTX 40 to notebooks

It wasn’t long before the NVIDIA GeForce RTX40 graphics to be available on portable PCs. NVIDIA has released RTX 40 graphics for laptops, which promise huge improvements on performance on low-end models. 

The top-of-the-line RTX 4090 and 4080 GPUs are capable of playing games on three monitors with 60 frames per second.which means you don’t need a desktop in order to fully immerse yourself in a racing or flight simulation.

Even the GeForce RTX RTX RTX RTX RT 4050, 4060 and the 4070 chips are advertised as being more efficient than the RTX 3080. They’re fast enough to provide gaming in 1440p at 80FPS. They’re also said to be two times the speed of the PlayStation 5.

 It’s also more feasible to tackle professional tasks such as 3D modeling or AI-powered media editing on 14 inch laptops, as per NVIDIA.

Its RTX 40 architecture is notoriously heavy on power consumption for desktops, however NVIDIA claims that it is keeping energy efficiency at bay by introducing laptop versions. The DLSS3 AI upscaling is optimized for mobile usage and more fine-grained “tri-speed” controls for memory allows the GPU switch to lower-power RAM states.

 The on-chip memory tweaks(such as increased bandwidth) and low voltage GDDR6 RAM can also help you get the maximum performance from your video equipment.

It will take for a while before purchasing an laptop that has GeForce RTX 40 technology. First RTX 4080, 4090 and models are expected to be on sale on February 8th for a start at $1,999. If you’re looking for an RTX 4050 model you can purchase them on February 22nd for an initial price of $999.

NVIDIA hasn’t provided a complete list of laptops but it is possible to expect the adoption of popular brands such as Acer, Alienware, ASUS, Dell, Gigabyte, HP, Lenovo, MSI, Razer and Samsung. 

It’s still too early to determine whether the GPUs live up to the hype of NVIDIA and promises, but they’ll definitely be welcomed upgrades if you’re already considering RTX 30-based computers.

6. Facebook

Facebook is another major business company founded by a small group of school friends. Mark Zuckerberg, Eduardo Saverin, Dustin Moskovitz, and Chris Hughes founded the company in 2004 while studying at Harvard.

The initial model, Facemash, was an online service that let Harvard students assess the attractiveness of each other. The school was quick to shut it down. However, its popularity led Zuckerberg to revisit the idea with TheFacebook.com.

The site allowed users to upload photos and personal information. The site’s popularity quickly grew. In time, students from different schools joined, and advertisers began to pay for advertising on the website. In 2005, the site became known as Facebook; the rest is history.

Facebook was made public on the 12th of December 2012, with 2.96 billion active monthly users. This parent firm, now called Meta Platforms, has a staggering market value of $206.53 billion.

7. Groupon

You’ve probably heard of Groupon. Since you explored its selections six months ago, the website has been enticed by mailer offers to get discounts on foot massages. It was only sometimes as well-known as it is now.

In 2007 Andrew Mason created a website named The Point to organize local groups with various functions in Chicago. It later led to the creation of an off-site page, Groupon, that promoted local businesses and offered special deals that were only available for a limited time.

The first contract included Motel Bar, a restaurant just down the hall from the office. It was so well-received that other Chicago businesses soon joined the bandwagon, and popularity grew organically.

In 2010 Groupon was operating in cities throughout the United States and had even been able to enter international markets, such as France, the United Kingdom, France, and Italy. By 2022 Groupon will boast more significant than 21 million active customers.
