Up To 26 Percent Faster In Games

AMD has announced the 4th Gen Ryzen 5000-series based on the Zen 3 architecture, including the 16-core Ryzen 9 5950X Ryzen 9 5900X. AMD claims they will offer up to 24 percent increase in performance in games at 1080p.

Also announced is the eight-core Ryzen 7 5800X for $449 and Ryzen 5 5600X for $229, all launching in November. AMD also claims Cinebench single-threaded scores in excess of 630 points, which is a huge amount faster than either current Intel or AMD CPUs.

The new CPUs feature a unified eight-core complex with lower latency – all cores have direct access to the L3 cache resulting in up to 19 percent IPC uplift. AMD claims it will be the biggest update to the Zen architecture yet, with a front to back redesign. Each core in an eight-core complex now has direct access to up to 32MB cache rather than 16MB.

There’s up to 24 percent increase in power efficiency, with a claimed 2.8x better power efficiency than Intel’s Core i9-10900K. The new CPUs will be available in November. AMD also announced that Zen 4 is still on track and will use a 5nm manufacturing process.

I’ll be reviewing the new CPUs when they land so follow me on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook,  Instagram or Reddit for more PC hardware news and reviews.

Valeo Equips Buses and Motor Coaches With a Health Shield Capable of Eliminating More Than 95 Percent of Viruses

Valeo has developed the world’s most powerful air-sterilization system for bus and motor coach cabins.

The system eliminates, upon activation and in a single airflow cycle, more than 95 percent of viruses, including Covid-19, as well as any bacteria or mold present in the air circulating in the cabin.

Irrespective of the source of infection, whether inside or outside the vehicle, Valeo-designed modules are effective throughout the vehicle’s journey with passengers onboard.

The Valeo devices are available as a standalone solution box or they can be directly integrated into a vehicle’s air conditioning system. They use ultraviolet light technology similar to that used in medical and hospital facilities. The UV rays work as both a bactericide and a germicide and can kill microbes such as viruses and pathogens. The rays stop these microbes from spreading and can be used as an alternative to other disinfection methods, avoiding the use of chemical products.

Valeo has created a unique solution integrating a UV light provided by one of the leading global experts in the technology, and a “light labyrinth”, which blocks the UV rays from spreading outside of the metal box, ensuring that passengers are never exposed to them. Only air circulating in the ventilation box is purified by the light.

The Institute of Medical Virology at the Goethe University Hospital in Frankfurt, Germany, confirmed in July the technology’s virucidal efficacy.

The Valeo solution recently has been integrated as original equipment in vehicles manufactured by a Brazilian bus maker. It is designed to be compatible with buses and motor coaches of all types and sizes, air-conditioned or not, and to withstand all weather conditions.

Valeo now plans to bring these systems to markets in Europe, the Americas and Asia. Valeo’s air purifiers also will be offered to operators of vehicles already on
