- Intel Core i3-9100F vs. Ryzen 5 1600 AF - Battle of the Budget
CPUs - The quad-core Core i3-9100F was hopeless in
Battlefield V, pretty bad in Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, fairly
useless in The Division 2, and weak in Shadow of the Tomb Raider. When
playing older or less demanding titles such as Far Cry New Dawn, the
Core i3 did well, but so will the 1600 AF or any other hexa-core or
better Ryzen processor.
- The best portable SSDs you can buy right now - It's not
just about how small the device is, how durable it is, or how many
gigabytes of storage it has - the speed of a portable SSD can heavily
influence your satisfaction with it. SSDs in general promise better
read and write speeds than HDDs, so you'll see a general increase if
you're going from one to the other. However, not all portable SSDs perform the same -
even if they advertise similar maximum speeds.
- AOC Releases the AGON AG353UCG Monitor: 35" VA, 3440 x 1440
UWQHD, Quantum Dot, 200 Hz, DisplayHDR 1000, G-Sync Ultimate, 1800R - AOC

1440 UWQHD (21:9) resolution, VESA DisplayHDR 1000 and Nvidia G-Sync
Ultimate. Its native 3440 x 1440 UWQHD (21:9) resolution combined with
the 1800R curvature creates the next level of immersion. The AG353UCG's
visuals pop thanks to Quantum Dot technology, 1000 nits peak brightness
with VESA DisplayHDR 1000, 2500:1 contrast and 90% DCI-P3 coverage.
Finally, the monitor supports Nvidia G-Sync Ultimate, offering HDR with
1000 nits brightness, at the same time eliminating stutter, tearing and
- Android 11 Preview Brings New Messaging Notifications and more
- Google has released the first Developer Preview of Android 11.
The list of features in this version provides a glimpse
of what to expect when Android 11 becomes available to consumers later
this year. Messaging receives the biggest update, with a new dedicated
section of the notifications shade devoted to ongoing conversations.
Messaging apps can also use "bubbles" to float a simple messaging thread window
above other apps. System permission dialog boxes (for access to
location, etc.) now have an "Only this time" option, similar to iOS.
Android 11 also adds native support for secure storage and retrieval of
verifiable identification documents, such as ISO 18013-5 compliant
Mobile Driving Licenses. Call screening apps will now have standardized
access to STIR-SHAKEN data, as well as a new screen that appears after
each call, "to let users perform actions such as marking a call as spam
or adding to contacts.". Also new are better support for pinhole
displays, waterfall displays, animated HIEF image files, and
low-latency video modes. Developers will benefit from new APIs for
machine learning, as well as 5G network status and performance. Android
11 also advances Google's Project Mainline, moving additional components of
the OS into modules that are quickly and easily updated via the Google
Play Store, instead of requiring a manufacturer-supplied full OS
update. The Developer Preview released today is not a "public beta" and
is not intended for consumers; it will only run on certain Pixel
devices and requires manual installation. Separately, Google announced
that Android 11 will enhance Work Profile so that companies issuing
company-owned phones to employees can give employees separate work and
personal profiles on the same device. Companies still control the work
profile and can set device-wide restrictions, but personal data is kept
private from the employer. This feature was previously only available
for personally-owned devices, not company-issued devices. Google is
expected to reveal additional features of Android 11 at its developer
conference in May.
- Google Expands Stadia Support to Gaming Phones, Flagship
Samsungs - Google is expanding the
list of phones supported by its Stadia game-streaming service on
February 20th. Initially supported only on its own Pixel phones, Stadia
will support Samsung flagship Galaxy S and Note series phones (S8 and
newer), as well as gaming phones from Razer and Asus (ROG Phone and ROG
Phone II). For a controller, gamers can either connect a Stadia
controller via USB, or third-party controllers via Bluetooth. Stadia
competes with Microsoft's xCloud and Nvidia's GeForce Now. Like those
other game-streaming services, Stadia runs full console-quality games
on powerful servers in the cloud, streaming video of the rendered
graphics to the user's device. Such services benefit from the higher
data rates and lower latency of 5G networks. Forthcoming 5G SA networks
will further reduce latency and improve data rates.
- The Mandalorian was shot on a holodeck-esque set with Unreal
Engine, video shows - Industrial Light and Magic has published a behind-the-scenes video on
the production of Disney+'s The Mandalorian that gives an illuminating
look at two of the biggest, high-tech trends in film and TV production:

- TikTok Rolling Out Parental Controls -TikTok is rolling out a new feature called Family Safety Mode, which lets

will then let parents set screen time limits, restrict the appearance
of content that may not be appropriate for all audiences, and limit who
can direct message their child. The feature is available first in the
UK, and will begin to roll out to "additional markets in the coming
- MWC 2020 Trade Show Cancelled - The GSMA mobile industry
trade group has cancelled its annual Mobile World Congress trade show
in Barcelona, Spain. An avalanche of companies have pulled out of the
event in recent days, due to concerns over how the international event
could potentially help spread the new coronavirus, even though that
risk is extremely low thanks to quarantine measures put in place by
China and other affected countries, and extensive preventative measures
already announced for MWC. MWC is the largest trade show in the world
for the mobile industry.
- A neural network picks promising antibiotics out of a library
of chemicals - But does it work? Apparently! After using the
network on a small
library of chemicals, it identified 99 molecules that looked promising.
Testing of these revealed that over half inhibited the growth of
bacteria. And, perhaps more significantly, there was a nice correlation
between the score for the molecule generated by the neural network and
its performance when tested against actual bacteria. After a few more
tests, the researchers tackled a big one: a selection from a giant
database with over 100 million molecules (107,349,233 to be exact).
Going through them took the system four days, which is a lot faster
than the "probably never" that it would take to screen that number of
molecules in real life. Not surprisingly, a number of molecules came
out of that screen, and the authors describe a few tests of two of
them. Both were broad spectrum, killing a large variety of bacterial
species—one of them brought growing bacterial cultures to a halt in
only four hours.
