Microsoft updates Windows 10 desktop icons

Par : James Dawson — 23 février 2020 à 16:46

Ever thought the Windows 10 desktop was looking a little tired or drab? Well, Microsoft obviously thinks so since the company announced this week that it is updating the appearance of the Windows 10 desktop with new icons.

Since Windows 10 launched it has featured icons that were a bit of a mixture between old and new. Microsoft has decided it is time to give the Windows 10 desktop a refresh and bring a fresh new appearance with some updated modern-looking desktop icons.

Microsoft has already updated the icons for applications such as Word and Excel from the Microsoft Office suite. The new Windows 10 desktop icons will attempt to replicate that style to bring the appearance of the operating system into the new decade, with a bold and more up to date, modern look.

To modernise the overall style of the Windows 10 desktop, Microsoft is updating all the default application icons bundled with Windows 10, such as Paint, Calendar, Calculator and Skype etc, as well as adding new desktop icons for folders, Windows store and more, to make the appearance of the operating system more streamlined and synchronised with the Office apps icons and the new Microsoft Edge browser icon.

The updated icons are already available in a Windows 10 preview 19569 build for Microsoft Insiders. Regular Windows 10 user can expect to receive the update featuring the new icons in the following months.

KitGuru says: how do you guys like the look of the Windows 10 desktop at the moment? Do you think it was time for a refresh of the appearance and what do you think of the new icons that Microsoft is bringing to Windows 10?

Ryzen 5 3600 vs. 3600X: Which should you buy?

— 23 février 2020 à 16:26
We were among the first to review the Ryzen 5 3600 and at $200 we found the 6-core, 12-thread processor a crankin' good deal. In short, it murders the 9600K in core-heavy productivity benchmarks and was right there for the gaming tests. But without question the most popular question we received afterwards was: should you buy the Ryzen 5 3600 or the 3600X?

Intel collaborate with QuTech to outline new quantum control chip

Par : James Dawson — 23 février 2020 à 15:28

Intel has collaborated with QuTech this week, to outline key technical features of a new cryogenic quantum control chip codenamed “Horse Ridge” through a research paper unveiled at the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) in San Francisco.

The research paper released by Intel and QuTech details features of the Horse Ridge chip that addresses a number of challenges faced in building a quantum computer that is powerful enough to demonstrate practicality, flexibility, fidelity and scalability. The integrated SoC design uses Intel’s 22nm FinFET Low Power CMOS technology with four integrated RF channels in a single device.

Each channel is capable of controlling up to 32 qubits and divides the total bandwidth into a series of non-overlapping frequency bands, meaning Horse Ridge can potentially control up to 128 qubits in a single device for efficient scaling. Intel has also optimised the multiplexing technology, to enable the system to scale and reduce errors from “Phase Shift” which helps quantum systems to automatically adapt and correct when controlling multiple qubits with the same RF line to improve fidelity.

“Quantum researchers work with just a small number of qubits, using smaller, custom-designed systems surrounded by complex control and interconnect mechanisms. Intel’s Horse Ridge greatly minimizes this complexity. By systematically working to scale to thousands of qubits required for quantum practicality,” said Jim Clarke, director of quantum hardware, Intel Labs.

Horse Ridge is capable of covering a wide range of frequencies which means it can control both superconducting qubits and spin qubits. Intel is exploring ways to use silicon spin qubits that have the potential to operate at high temperatures up to 1 kelvin. This research will allow devices to integrate silicon spin qubits into Horse Ridge to create a solution that delivers the qubits and controls in one package for improved flexibility.

KitGuru says: This new technology from Intel could greatly simplify the complex electronics required to operate quantum computing systems in the future, allowing a faster setup time and improved efficiency. What do you guys think of Intel and QuTech’s Horse Ridge design?

Samsung begins mass production of 7nm EVU chips at new production line

Par : James Dawson — 23 février 2020 à 11:51

Samsung announced this week that mass production of 7nm extreme ultraviolet (EUV) chips for partners at its cutting-edge fabrication line at Hwaseong in Korea has begun, with its first batch of products produced at the fab expected to be delivered to customers in the first quarter of 2020.

The Hwaseong manufacturing line named V1 broke ground in 2018 and began testing wafer production during the second half of 2019. The V1 line will be Samsung’s first production line dedicated to manufacturing EUV chips using the company’s 7nm process node and below.

Currently, the V1 manufacturing line is producing 6nm mobile chips alongside the 7nm process. Samsung claims it will continue to invest in research to adopt finer circuitry and will manufacture products based on a 3nm process node at the Hwaseong V1 production line in the future.

“As we ramp up production, the V1 line will enhance our ability to respond to market demand and expand opportunities to support our customers,” said Dr. ES Jung, President and Head of Foundry Business at Samsung Electronics.

By the end of the year, Samsung will have invested $6 billion USD in the Hwaseong fab, according to the company’s plans and total capacity coming from 7nm and lower process node will be triple that from 2019. Combined with the S3 line in Hwaseong, the V1 line is expected to play a huge role in meeting the growing demand throughout the industry for 7nm and lower foundry technologies.

With its V1 line in Hwaseong now up and fully functional, Samsung has a total of six foundries in South Korea and the U.S, that includes five 12-inch lines and one 8-inch line.

Discuss on our Facebook page HERE.

KitGuru says: The announcement of Samsung beginning mass production of 7nm EUV chips at its V1 line in Korea will be welcome news for the industry which has had shortage scares in the past, lets hope that the latest worry about the corona virus doesn’t affect the production of Samsung 7nm EUV chips.

Intel Comet Lake-S desktop processors spotted for sale

Par : James Dawson — 23 février 2020 à 10:34

Earlier this week, details of Intel’s 10th generation desktop F-series processor SKUs were leaked out online and it seems that now there has even been listings of the new processors spotted for sale in some European online stores.

Even though Intel has still not officially given us a firm release date or a hint of pricing for its new 10th generation desktop processors codenamed Comet Lake-S, it is expected that they will hit the online shelves sometime within the next eight weeks. However, it seems as though a couple of Czech/Slovakian distributors may have jumped the gun and listed the new CPUs for sale already.

The listings were first noticed by serial CPU leaks specialist momomo_us on Twitter a couple of days ago and include new Pentium, Core i3 and Core i5 processors. Pricing in the premature sale listing didn’t include VAT and whether the prices accurately represent what they will be at the official launch remains to be seen.

However, it could give us an indication that when the processors finally release in the UK, the Intel Core i5 10600 non-K version may be priced around £260-£280, which is similar to how previous generation Coffee Lake processors were priced at launch. The most glaring omission from the listing was the missing core i7 and core i9 SKUs and there was no sign of any unlocked K series CPUs listed either.

We assume that the listing has now been taken down, but since a retailer has now actually listed them for sale, whether this was on purpose or not, it gives us a good indication that the official release is very close and could be a little earlier than some may have been expecting. Since this is still not an official listing, we could see prices adjust depending on the situation at launch.

PowerCore+ 26800 PD 45W Review – Anker’s Nintendo Switch Portable Charger

Par : Aernout van de Velde — 23 février 2020 à 10:00

Anker Powercore + 26800 45W

Anker is among the best brands for power banks and back in 2018, it released the officially Nintendo-licensed 'PowerCore Speed 20100 PD Nintendo Switch Edition'. Following this portable charger's success, the company released a more compact version, the 'PowerCore 13400 PD Nintendo Switch Edition'.

I reached out to Anker to enquire whether there was an opportunity to review one of their Nintendo-licensed power banks, but due to both of the above-mentioned chargers not being available at the time, I was asked to review Anker's first premium power bank with 45W PD - the 'PowerCore+ 26800 PD 45W' with 60W USB-C wall charger. Let's find out how this colossal-capacity charger performs when using the Nintendo Switch.

The following items are included in the box:

- PowerCore+ 26800 PD
- 60W USB-C wall charger
- USB-C to USB-C cable
- Travel pouch
- Welcome guide

Design and features

Let's start off by pointing out that this charger hasn't been officially licensed by Nintendo, but aside from offering much higher capacity and energy transfer rate, the internal specs don't really differ from the officially Nintendo Switch-licensed PowerCore Speed 20100 PD and PowerCore 13400. Like its smaller relatives, the PowerCore+ 26800 offers full Power Delivery (PD) support, allowing the Switch to charge while playing.

While the PowerCore Speed 20100 PD, and especially the PowerCore 13400, can be considered quite compact, this can't be said about the Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD. Weighing approximately 1.1lbs, its substantially heavier than the Nintendo Switch and fairly large as well - 180 x 81.5 x 22mm. Then again, the PowerCore+ 26800 packs a massive 26800mAh battery, resulting in a less portable charger that is best carried separately from the Switch.

On the bank itself, we find a 45W USB-C port alongside two 15W USB ports and a led indicator sporting 10 lights to indicate how much power remains. Anker's premium offering has a strong metal body, but please be advised that metal objects can easily leave permanent scratches.

Anker PowerCore + 26800 PD 45W


According to Nintendo, the battery life of the original Switch model is approximately 2.5 to 6.5 hours, while the battery inside the updated Switch model lasts considerably longer on a single charge -  roughly 4.5 to 9 hours. For the Nintendo Switch Lite, the battery life is approximately 3 to 7 hours.

The use of a portable charger can greatly extend the playtime in handheld mode, and the additional playtime gained depends on the capacity of the charger. In general, higher capacity results in more playtime, but the faster charge of the 26800+ PD slightly lowers the amount of available capacity.

While Anker has listed the capacity of the power bank to be 26,800mAh, the actual capacity available to devices is always less due to differences in voltage and energy loss during transfer.

Using the PowerCore+ 26800 PD on my original Switch model resulted in roughly 11/12 hours of additional playtime. This was when using somewhat more demanding titles such as Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey and DOOM. During testing, the Switch's Wi-Fi connection was enabled and I didn't cut down on brightness. When using the 26800+ with the new Switch model or Switch Lite, players will experience even more additional playtime.

When playing less demanding games with Wi-Fi disabled, and turning down brightness, more additional playtime will be gained.

The 26,800mAh battery allowed me at least 3 full recharges of my Switch and there was still some juice left in the Anker after that. This leftover, however, didn't allow for another full recharge.

Anker's premium offering charges Nintendo's hybrid platform under all gaming conditions. While playing a game, the charger completely recharges in the Switch in approximately 3.5 hours. In sleep mode, roughly 2.5 to 3 hours is required to top the Switch off.

The Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD 45W comes with a 60W USB-C wall charger which allows you to fully recharge the power bank within 3.5 hours.

Another interesting thing to note is that this 45W PowerCore is also able to power the Switch dock for playing in TV mode. While I don't advise using third-party chargers for the Switch dock, it does show just how powerful Anker's premium portable charger is.


Overall, the Anker PowerCore + 26800 PD 45W is one of the best portable chargers currently available. If offers amazing capacity and allows users to fully recharge their Switch while gaming within 3.5 hours. Anker's premium offering, however, isn't as portable as the officially Nintendo-licensed Anker products and I would only recommend this offering over the considerably less expensive Nintendo-licensed PowerCore Speed 20100 PD and PowerCore 13400 if you're in the market for a charger that is also able to power your Switch dock or other high-powered devices.

Dreams (PS4 Pro) Review – The Unattainable is Unknown

Par : Kai Powell — 23 février 2020 à 00:47


MediaMolecule is such an interesting edge case in the gaming industry. When not making charming titles like Tearaway, they're building the foundation for creation tools and packing them up within the premise of an all-ages video game. We saw this time after time with the LittleBigPlanet series, although most creations in that were limited to a two-dimensional space. Now, after years of teases and early access testing, the full version of Dreams is upon us.

In truth, when I sat down to start plotting out my review for Dreams, I didn't know where to start. Whenever I play titles like LittleBigPlanet or RPG Maker, I'm always taking the role of a consumer rather than a producer. I leave it to the more talented and creative types to craft experiences on these platforms and quietly reap the rewards once a new creation is uploaded to the internet. There's a small moment of pride any time I log into a platform and find out that one of the creators I follow has uploaded a new experience.

Dreams opens with a three-hour playable showcase called Art's Dream. If you've seen the pictures of the jazz ensemble from previous demos of Dreams, that's where it has all culminated. This series of Dreams showcases a wide range of genres that are supported in Dreams: action platformers, on-rail shooters, point-and-click adventures, and even a couple of rhythm sequences. It's all a pretty novel experience and worth giving a play once you pick up a copy of Dreams (plus the collectibles you earn carry forth into new stamps and items to mess around within the creation mode). If all you're looking for is what MediaMolecule has packed on the disc, Dreams isn't the right purchase for you because you'll be finished with the on-disc experiences within a day. It's the lasting power of exploring the Dreams of other creators that really gives this title its true potential.

What makes Dreams such a powerful platform for creativity is that, to quote the late Zombocom, "You can do anything.. Anything at all. The only limit is yourself.". This mantra is no less true today than when I first heard it two decades ago. Genres that I didn't think possible to be created with a PS4 controller were suddenly in my hands. One moment I'm solving puzzles from The Witness, another I'm listening to a musical composition of Gwyn, Lord of Cinder recreated with a single piano in Dreams.

Finding new Dreams to enjoy is part of the curation that MediaMolecule has put together in Dreams. Just loading into the DreamSurfing main page offers players a plethora of choice: winners of the first annual IMPY awards, new and trending dreams, community jams, various collections, and more all the way down to granular individual tags. If you're ever unsure with what to play, there's even an Autosurf function to load up a random assortment of Dreams that curates as you give each one you're experiencing a quick thumbs up or down.

Early on, and this is coming after a somewhat lengthy Early Access period in Dreams, many experiences in the Dreamsverse are still works in progress or early proofs of concept. For every complete experience that I enjoyed, I would find another two or three that are slowly building up. This gives me hope for the future and what Dreams may come, but those that want to jump in and start exploring the creations may want to hold off for a short while. Or, in the meantime, you can pick up a copy of Dreams and begin creating your own experiences with Dream Shaping.

The only thing that can hold you back in Dreams from unleashing your creativity is knowing how to work with the tools you're given. Dreams offers three control schemes for the creative mode Dream Shaping: dual analog sticks, motion control via tilting the DualShock 4, and two Move controllers. Each of these have their own unique strengths and weaknesses but I found myself slightly hindered with trying to navigate between windows and note charts when I tried to create a simple saxophone loop. Having support for keyboard and mouse would alleviate much of the control issues myself, but I'm just an outlier when it comes to controls in general. After seeing people make full demos of Fallout 4 with only the controllers that came with their console, I'm a believer that Dreams can come true once you learn how to use the controllers to their fullest potential.

MediaMolecule doesn't pick up the player and throw them into a pool of untapped potential. Nearly every tool in the Dreams toolbox comes with a series of video tutorials that guide you along as you learn the ropes. There are no grades or right answers to these tutorials and no in-game instructor is going to call you out for deviating from the videos. These exist as a picture-in-picture video merely meant to guide you along and help to spark creativity by explaining how a tool works and how to put it to use. Master Class tutorials that show up later on cover the concepts of Dream Shaping in greater depth and showcase how to use multiple concepts to set up a scene or element.

Dreams is only in its infancy at the moment and I fully expect to see the full potential of the platform take months to achieve. However, even days after its official release, there are already a great number of Dreams that give me hope for the platform. Even multiplayer and PlayStation VR support are both in development and should arrive sooner rather than later. This is one creative platform that I hope persists for a long time and even makes its way onto next-generation consoles. If you've had a great idea for a game, stop dreaming how to do it and do it instead (in Dreams).
