Problems with instability of 13th and 14th generation Intel processors also affect laptops

Instability issues with 13th and 14th generation Intel processors that previously affected desktop PCs are now affecting laptops. Alderon Games founder Matthew Cassells reported on Reddit that Intel laptop processors are also prone to crashes and instability.


Intel commented on the situation via Digital Trends, saying that instability in 13th and 14th generation mobile processors is not related to problems with desktop processors. The company says symptoms such as system freezes and crashes can be caused by a variety of software and hardware issues. Intel recommends that users experiencing issues contact their system manufacturer for assistance.

Despite Intel's claims, many users and experts are skeptical of these claims, fearing that instability problems may be more widespread than the company admits.

Xbox faces difficulty in funding marketing in Europe, losing ground to PlayStation

Competition between Xbox and PlayStation in the console market is fierce, but Xbox faces serious challenges in funding marketing, especially in Europe. Michael Flatt, Xbox marketing director for EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa), said the brand has to "improvise a lot" to attract marketing funds, unlike PlayStation, which has significantly more resources.

Flatt noted that despite Xbox being one of the world's largest companies, the reality in the marketing field is completely different. PlayStation "spends more than us." PlayStation has marketing dollars that Xbox doesn't, forcing Flatt's team to be more budget conscious.

Xbox's marketing strategy relies on Game Pass, but the lack of large media budgets means the team has to be "persistent" to secure the necessary funds. Rumors suggest a possible reduction in marketing focus on Europe in favor of the US and other regions.

Xbox's "improvised" approach and freedom to experiment allow the brand to develop ideas beyond financial constraints. However, comparison with PlayStation's powerful marketing campaigns is disappointing for the team, which is working hard to compete in the market.

AMD Ryzen 9000 "Zen 5" prices: 9950X for $499, 9900X for $399, 9700X for $299, 9600X for $229

Estimated prices for AMD's Ryzen 9000 "Zen 5" desktop processors have been revealed, and if correct, the flagship Ryzen 9 9950X chip will cost $499. The information comes from an Anandtech forum member who claims to know a BestBuy employee. The Ryzen 9000 processors are reportedly already in stock and will be available for purchase on July 31st.

9950X 499 9900X 399 9700X 299 9600X 229

According to the source, prices for processors will be as follows:

  • Ryzen 9 9950X – $499 (versus 7950X MSRP of $699)
  • Ryzen 9 9900X – $399 (versus 7900X MSRP of $549)
  • Ryzen 7 9700X – $299 (versus 7700X MSRP of $399)
  • Ryzen 5 9600X – $229 (versus 7600X MSRP of $299)

These prices may change closer to the official launch. If they are confirmed, AMD will offer very competitive solutions against Intel, especially given Intel's problems with the performance and stability of their desktop processors.

If these prices hold up, the 9-core Ryzen 9950 16X would be a bargain compared to Intel's Core i9-14900K and Core i9-14900KS. The $7 Ryzen 9700 299X also looks attractive, especially since it beats the Ryzen 7 7800X3D, the best gaming chip right now. Ryzen 5 9600X for $229 will be a good solution for the mid-range AM5 segment.

The motherboard market expects a full recovery by 2024 thanks to new processors from AMD and Intel


The motherboard market, which has slowed in recent quarters, is poised for a full recovery by 2024. This is due to the preparation of major brands such as ASUS, ASRock, Gigabyte and MSI for the launch of new processors from Intel and AMD.

The main reason for the decline was the lack of consumer interest in new generations of products and the lack of new products. However, this has begun to change thanks to the hype around AI and the anticipation of new platforms from Intel (Arrow Lake) and AMD (Ryzen 9000).

According to DigiTimes, Taiwanese motherboard makers - ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI and ASRock - have started to see a recovery in shipments. Demand peaked in 2020-2021, but in 2022, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and decreased demand, supplies fell by 30%.

Since mid-2023, the market has been showing recovery. Launch of AMD AM5 platforms with Zen 5 chips (Ryzen 9000 "Granite Ridge") and upcoming launch of Intel LGA-1851 for Core processors Ultra 200 "Arrow Lake" creates a new peak season, the main driving force of which is innovation.

ASUS, Gigabyte and MSI are expected to ship 2 to 3 million motherboards in the coming quarters, with total shipments reaching 38,80 million units, up 50% from 2022.

AMD's LLVM compiler is ending support for 3DNow!

AMD's LLVM compiler has stopped supporting the iconic 3DNow! instruction set, which was first introduced with AMD K6-2 processors, to compete with Intel.


3DNow! Instruction Set was introduced in 1998 and was intended for multimedia and graphics applications, competing with Intel's MMX instruction set. 3DNow! made it possible to improve floating point calculations, which was especially important for 3D graphics and video processing. Support was built into the x86 architecture, making it easy to use without the need for modifications.

However, over time, 3DNow! was replaced by more powerful SSE extensions, causing it to become obsolete. Despite this, AMD's LLVM compiler continued to support 3DNow! Until recently.

3DNow! Instruction Set was supported only by AMD processors, starting with the K6-2 (1998) and up to the Bulldozer family (2011). SSE, which was first implemented in the Athlon XP in 2001, has become more popular and effective.

Interestingly, the 3DNow! all may still be available in LLVM compiler assembly code, but the major options have been removed, marking the official end of support for this instruction set.

SpaceX will offer ultra-high-speed Internet up to 8 Gbps

SpaceX is preparing to offer a new service based on its Starlink satellite network, providing ultra-fast Internet with download speeds of up to 8 Gbps in remote areas without terrestrial infrastructure. Starlink satellite Internet operates through a network of ground stations connected to the global network via optical lines, and satellites in orbit act as data relays.

Starlink 2

In January, SpaceX launched its Community Gateways plan, which allows internet service providers to provide high-speed connectivity to entire communities or businesses. As part of this proposal, SpaceX will build the provider a ground complex that provides broadband at speeds of up to 10 Gbps.

A new Mobile Community Gateways service will be introduced soon, expanding Community Gateways capabilities to the most remote regions such as islands or archipelagos. SpaceX will begin offering ground stations with large antennas that provide Internet via radio.

SpaceX Vice President Michael Nichols released speed test results from Jacksonville, showing that Starlink could deliver up to 8102 Mbps using Mobile Community Gateways. The first such station was built in Unalaska, Alaska, and successfully provides Internet to local residents. SpaceX plans to implement mobile gateway technology on military ships and aircraft.

The creation of such stations will cost $1,25 million, and the monthly fee will be from $75, depending on traffic.
