NVIDIA as, yes, we’re going through a chip shortage, and yet the company made a ton of announcements yesterday. Probably the most interesting one is that they will return to make ARM-based processors, which I know, is confusing since they make the chip for the Nintendo Switch. Anyways, this will be called the NVIDIA Grace but it’s not for everyone, unless you’re planning to buy an AI datacenters at some point. However, they also announced that they are partnering up with MediaTek, “to create a reference platform supporting Chromium, Linux and NVIDIA SDKs”. Basically by creating this SDK they might eventually bring GeForce RTX graphics to Chromebooks. MediaTek’s CEO mentions that this partnership will also bring GPU acceleration to the ARM-PC ecosystem, allowing for a boost to the gaming and content creation prowess of these machines while NVIDIA claims they want to create a “new class of notebooks powered by an ARM-based CPU and an NVIDIA RTX GPU. So yeah, we’ll keep you posted on any announcements they make in the future, as that combo is far more interesting on our book. Samsung might adopt this exact technology as well. According to a new report from Galaxy Club, “Samsung is experimenting with the technology for one of their upcoming phones. Now of course, the report doesn’t explicitly mention the S22 Ultra but other than that, the only major candidate would be the Z Fold 3 if they end up skipping the Note, and the Z Fold has never been Ultra about cameras. If you don’t know how this technology works, it basically makes the whole sensor move around when the accelerometer detects shaky hand movements, which serves not just for video stabilization, but also for sharper photography when taking stills on the go. We’re not exactly sure if this is that whole possible partnership that Samsung is reportedly gonna do with Olympus, since their Micro Four Thirds cameras include this. Let’s see how it goes in the end as the S21 Ultra has already proven to be one of the best cameras of the year.
Story of the day:Apple’s next event was, she would tell you April 20th but there were no invites, and Apple’s website showed nothing. Well, now after tons of missed leaks and speculations, we have an official invite for an event happening at 10AM Pacific on April 20th with the caption “Spring Loaded”. And with the amount of products we’re expecting, it actually does sound loaded. Doing a little bit of a recap, we’re expecting AirTags to finally be released after almost 2 years of leaks. We should be getting new iPad Pros that feature mini-LED displays, along with an iPad mini that should be getting a larger display on a similar chassis. I would also really love for that iPad mini Pro to become a reality here by the way, but the rumors seem to make that far fetched. Other than that, another product that might not happen at this event is the third generation AirPods. They’re reportedly going into production until Q3, even if the black market already has the leaked design on sale. Finally, the redesigned iMac might also make an appearance here and that might also mean that we’re getting some new Apple Silicon chips, but with the chip shortage, who knows. Of course, we’re just speculating here but., what Apple products are you waiting for?
