Exploring the 5G! Big Chinese makers test Samsung chips on their handsets

Samsung has evolved quite a bit throughout the year to manufacture its chips for smartphones that want to make use of 5G technology as a way of connecting. The recent popularization of it is beginning to be reflected among the world's largest mobile phone manufacturers, to the point where South Korean equipment is being tested by several companies in their handsets, mainly in China.

The 5G is one of the solutions found by the technology market to meet the growth in the need for faster and stable connections, since nowadays, most users perform more activities using mobile data than WiFi networks.

However, the application is still in the test phase and the full implementation should take a few more years, especially if we take into account the fact that several cities in Brazil still have 3G as the standard.

Regardless of this situation, smartphone manufacturers are modernizing to handle most of their customers residing in places where the 5G is going to take effect soon, so the search for the best modem options on the market compatible with this type of connection comes growing every day.

According to reports from the Digitimes newspaper , major Chinese manufacturers such as Oppo and Vivo are buying samples of the Samsung 5G chipset to find out if South Korea has been able to develop the best solution for the industry so far. that the company has developed the Exynos 5100 modem, the Exynos RF 5500 and the Exynos SM 5800 power management chip in 2019 to serve this market.


Microsoft predicts AI to contribute $5 trillion to global GDP growth, among other advantages

Microsoft has made many moves centered around the importance of artificial intelligence (AI) in the recent past. These include a partnership with General Assembly to curb the skills gap in AI, detailing of its innovations in AI to help the environment, and the release of a book that takes an in-depth look at the role of AI in manufacturing.

Now, the tech giant is once again highlighting the importance of AI, with the release of a new report in collaboration with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), explaining how AI can help reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and assist with an overall growth trend of gross domestic product (GDP) worldwide.

The applications of AI tech in four areas have been signified in the report, namely - agriculture, water, energy, and transport. If properly made use of, investment in these areas would help increase the global GDP by up to $5.2 trillion by 2030 - which amounts to roughly a 4.4% increase. Simultaneously, the report indicates that global GHG emissions may be reduced by up to 4% in the same timeframe.

Interestingly, about two years ago, PwC predicted that AI will contribute $15.7 trillion to the global economy by 2030. Given the aforementioned statistics, it looks like the firm has slightly tempered its expectations regarding the growth.

Economic benefits are expected to be seen predominantly in Europe, East Asia, and North America, with each region seeing a bump of up to 5.4%, 5.1%, and 4.2% respectively. With regards to GHGs, the greatest fall is predicted for North America with a 6.1% decrease. The Sub-Saharan Africa region, meanwhile, would reportedly have only 0.2% less emissions in comparison. More detailed statistics can be viewed above.

Furthermore, it is also explained that regions with AI growth and adoption 'blockers' in place will see less of an economic growth. However, if progress is made to eliminate these blockers, noticeable change would emerge on the positive end.

The energy sector is expected to feature the highest increase in annual GDP contribution ($2.6tn) as well as the greatest decrease in annual GHG emissions among the four sectors. More information regarding each sector can be viewed in the following image.

Nearing the end of the report, Microsoft states that the aforementioned expectations are only possible if there is increased collaboration among AI tool creators and users, and a shared sense of responsibility. This would ultimately lead to AI successfully reaching its "full potential" to help our planet in the most beneficial way possible.


TSMC announces first research for production of chips with 2nm process

As it prepares to start production of Huawei kirin 985 with 7nm + EUV process, TSMC is already studying helping Apple develop its 5nm processors . Now, to the surprise of the market, the Taiwanese manufacturer announced that it already thinks of 2nm .

In a statement sent to the international press, TSMC announced that it has already initiated the first research for the development of chips that will be produced at 2nm. According to the company, the measure is seen as essential for reaching global leadership with technology.

However, despite early initiatives in the area, TSMC also made it clear that 2nm chips will only hit the market by the middle of 2024 . Over the next few years, the Taiwanese will be concentrating on producing 7nm and 5nm chips for partner companies.

The company also revealed that the first studies are already being done at the Science and Technology Park of Southern Hsinchu in Taiwan. In addition, some goals have also been established :

2020 - launch of processors with 5nm

2021 - Development of 3nm

2022 - Mass production of chips in 3nm

2024 - chip launch with 2nm

For the technological advance to become a reality, TSMC said it has more than 7,000 engineers in its structure, some of them already studying how to produce 2nm chips. With this, the Taiwanese expects to launch the first processor with the technology and to overcome a series of competitors in the new market that must be formed.


iPhone of 2020 can count on 5nm chip for efficiency never seen

Although the 2019 iPhones have not yet been officially presented to the world, something that is expected in September, new forecasts for Apple's future devices are coming to light next year thanks to the plans unveiled by Taiwanese TSMC chip maker ..

The Apple supplier has confirmed that it plans to start the production volume of chips with 5-nanometer lithography during the first quarter of 2020, offering transistor numbers 1.8 times higher than that found in 7nm chips, in addition to counting up to 15 % increase for the transmission speed of information on the chip.

According to TechWeb , TSMC still wants to go beyond the next few years aiming to build nanochips with only 3-nanometer lithography for the year 2022.

While TSMC and Apple work hand in hand to bring the 2020 iPhones to the market with a 5-nanometer chip, it looks like Qualcomm will work with Samsung to manufacture its Snapdragon 865 processors with Samsung's proprietary technology, 7 nanometers.

That means that, most likely, Qualcomm's next-gen chip will still offer the same lithographs used in its processors this year, and as a result may cause Apple to take the lead and make iPhones of 2020 will be the first smartphones to adopt the new 5-nanometer lithograph in their chipsets.

Of course, it is still too early to guarantee any information, but with TSMC already preparing to manufacture such chips on a large scale, it is very likely that some company has an interest in using them. Despite this, it is very likely that Apple will continue to adopt 7nm chip manufacturing with the 2019 iPhones.



At this E3 game show, LG quietly released the UltraGear Nano series of e- sports displays. Compared with the same type of products, this series is the world's first IPS gaming screen with a response speed of 1ms, and also supports up to 144Hz refresh rate and 98% DCI-P3 color gamut. More importantly, LG also added an RGB ambient light to the display, which interacts with the displayed game screen to give the player a more immersive gaming experience.

The LG UltraGear Nano series of e-sports displays are available in 27-inch and 38-inch versions, both with a screen ratio of 21:9 and a curved screen design, with the difference of the former resolution of 2560× 1440, compatible with NVIDIA G-SYNC and supports HDR10. The latter has a resolution of 3840×1600, built-in NVIDIA G-SYNC processor, certified by VESA DisplayHDR 400 and overclocked to 175Hz.

In addition to outstanding screen quality, the LG UltraGear Nano series of gaming displays also features a range of features optimized for the game. Features such as dark balance, self-contained crosshairs, and tear-proof screens allow players to make more precise operations in FPS games.

The two monitors will be available for sale in the North American market in early July, and LG has not yet announced their specific selling prices.
