Huawei patents laser charging technology for smartphones

Huawei Technologies has reportedly filed a patent for a laser charging module for smartphones, which would allow people to charge several phones in the same room at the same time.

The module would use invisible lasers to charge multiple smartphone devices within a certain distance, provided they were equipped with a specific sensor.

Reports say the technology is expected to be available within the next three years.

AMD unveils new processor series for desktops

AMD has announced the Ryzen 5000 processors for desktops – the first of its chips to feature Zen 3 architecture.

The company has touted the new Ryzen 5900X as “the world’s best gaming CPU”.

The entry-level Ryzen 5 5600X will be available from the beginning of November, replacing last year’s Zen 2-based Ryzen 3000 desktop chips.

The new chips reportedly offer a 19 percent increase in instructions per cycle, as well as a higher max boost speed.

The company has announced four new Zen 3 CPUs: the top of the line Ryzen 9 5950X model, the Ryzen 9 5900X, the Ryzen 7 5800X, and the Ryzen 5 5600X.

Like AMD, Intel also has new processors coming

Intel has also unveiled details of its 11th Gen Rocket Lake desktop processors, which the company says will be out in the first quarter of 2021.

The new chips are said to be compatible with the Intel 400-series motherboards and are expected to still use the same 14nm process the company has used for years.

The new chip lineup, which some report will be out in March, is expected to offer Intel’s new Xe graphics and integrated Thunderbolt 4 (and USB4) support.
