This week, we have even more news on the ongoing developments regarding Nvidia’s proposed purchase of Arm. This time, however, we’re talking about Arm customers that actually support an Nvidia takeover, as opposed to Arm customers who object to the deal. Other big news includes Intel’s announcements at ISC 2021, where the company offered new details on its upcoming Sapphire Rapids Scalable Xeons and its Ponte Vecchio GPU.
Other news items include some new details regarding Windows 11, such as Microsoft testing older CPUs for compatibility and hopefully a much improved PC Health Check App in the future. There’s also news from TeamGroup on the DDR5 front, mining GPUs hitting the used market, Samsung’s 3GAA process, and more.
At GN, we took a deep dive into Noctua’s long awaited fully passive cooler, the Noctua NH-P1, and included our use of Schlieren photography. We also reviewed the Lian Li Odyssey X, and detailed EVGA’s first AMD motherboard and AMD’s Hydra overclocking tool in a special HW News video.
