Next year, Qualcomm wants to offer Oryon, a specially developed CPU that will first be used in notebooks. The first features of the new platform now has WinFuture collected. Accordingly, the internally “Hamoa” named chip has 12 cores, uses LPDDR5X and can access fast UFS 4.0.

Qualcomm lifted the veil over the Oryon name just a few weeks ago at the Snapdragon Summit, thereby announcing the designation for future Arm SoCs with their own microarchitecture, which nine years after the Krait 400 CPU in the Snapdragon 800 are back with custom CPUs in the The provider’s portfolio, after only slightly adapted arm designs based on the Cortex CPUs were used recently.

Two variants in development

According to WinFuture The successor to the current Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3, which is used in the Lenovo ThinkPad X13s (test), among other things, will be developed under the internal code name “Hamoa” and should have the model numbers SC8380X and SC8380XP. The numbers match the previous naming, because the 8cx Gen 3 runs internally as SC8280. The “P” variant could represent a more powerful version compared to the base model.

Efficiency cores return

There had already been rumors that the first SoC based on the Oryon CPU would run with eight performance and four efficiency cores. This specific subdivision can WinFuture Although not explicitly proven, the site wants to have evidence of a structure with a total of 12 CPU cores. The still current Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 runs with four Arm Cortex-X1 with up to 2.995 GHz and four Cortex-A78 with up to 2.4 GHz. Qualcomm therefore completely dispenses with efficiency cores. LPDDR5X as the attached RAM and the support of UFS 4.0 are mentioned as further key data of the new chip. With UFS 4.0, the throughput of the M-PHY interface is doubled compared to UFS 3.0 to 23.2 Gbit/s or 2,900 MB/s per line. Since two lines can be used like in the predecessor, the maximum data throughput increases to 46.4 Gbit/s gross or 5,800 MB/s.

Background to Oryon and Nuvia

Background to Oryon: The name refers to Qualcomm’s first custom CPU since Krait, the development of which is followed by the acquisition of Nuvia. Nuvia was founded in spring 2019 by John Bruno, Manu Gulati and Gerard Williams III. Williams III in particular, as the former Senior Director for Platform Architecture at Apple, is considered a luminary of SoC development. Williams III was responsible for all CPU developments at Apple from 2009 to 2019 and ushered in the 64-bit era of smartphones with the Apple A7. He most recently led the development of the Firestorm design at Apple, which is used as a large CPU core in the A14 Bionic as well as in the M1, M1 Pro and M1 Max. Oryon is slated to move into the Snapdragon platforms next year starting with the notebook segment.

Barcelona offers 200,000 euros to the project that reduces the accident rate of motorcycles

Barcelona City Council has launched a challenge for companies, startups, universities and innovation centers to present urban solutions that have as objective reduce motorcycle-related accidents. The chosen projects, which will be applied in the city, are part of the Barcelona Innova Lab Mobility initiative that promotes pilot tests to improve mobility.

Barcelona is one of the European cities with a greater presence of motorcycles and mopeds which represent 33% of the total census of vehicles, and motorcycle drivers account for 86% of the seriously injured, according to the balance of road accidents for the first half of 2022. With the aim of reducing accidents and increasing road safety in the city, these entities have launched this initiative to find and apply innovative solutions on the streets of the city, with the collaboration of the Tomorrow.Mobility show organized by Fira and the EIT Urban Mobility (European Union initiative).

The challenge, launched internationally, counts with an economic endowment of 200,000 euros, which will correspond to a maximum of 80% of the total amount of the winning solutions. The projects can be aimed at resolving the accident rate from behavioral innovation, that is, with solutions related to driving habits, and from technological innovation.

The execution time of the selected proposals is 18 months, of which the pilot phase must be a minimum of six. The proposals must be applicable in a real environment in the short term and must define, in this sense, its deployment space. In addition, it must achieve quantifiable results in relation to the safety of motorcyclists and third parties, which are lasting over time. Its innovative and differential component will also be valued both in the methodologies and resources used and in its execution.

This call is aimed at companies, startups, universities, research centers, technology centers, associations and foundations that have until next March 1 to present their projects. A committee of experts will assess the technical quality of the works presented and will choose the winning solutions that could be applied in Barcelona during that same year. The projects will have international projection with their participation in the next edition of Tomorrow.Mobility, which will be held next November together with the Smart City Expo World Congress at Fira de Barcelona.

Microsoft Teams integrates into Elgato Stream Deck

Elgato Stream Deck

The Elgato Stream Deck is a very interesting peripheral that we had the opportunity to analyze at the time, and that allows you to create different shortcuts and functions that will be associated to each of the available buttons. It allows you to create different usage profiles, and we can switch between them in a very simple way.

For example, we can assign to a button that directly opens a web page, to run a specific application, to perform a specific action and we can also set specific commands and download completely free applications. It is a very interesting solution, especially for professionals who are dedicated to content creation and streaming.

The point is that the Redmond giant has released an official plugin that allows you to integrate an Elgato Stream Deck device with Microsoft Teams. This plugin was announced by the American company earlier this week, but it was officially launched yesterday. The installation process is quite simple, but we can find more information in the official Microsoft forums.

Once installed, we can use the Elgato Stream Deck to access shortcuts and specific functions that will improve our user experience with Microsoft Teams. Thus, for example, we can blur the background in a video call by pressing a button, and we can also assign other specific functions such as raising and lowering our hand, muting ourselves, recording, and even to show live reactions during meetings.

This new plugin enhances the value of the Elgato Stream Deck, making it a very interesting solution for those who work remotely and have to participate in frequent video calls and events. Obviously it is still an excellent option for content creators and streaming professionals as well. I remind you that it is available in different versions, and that the standard MK.2 model with 15 buttons is priced at €149.99.
