Intel’s Mainstay for Desktop Computers is Intel Core i9

News Techno – The Intel Core X Series is available in various options. However, the series are the most proud of the Core i9 Extreme for US $ 1,999 (about Rp 26.6 million). This chipset is the first desktop processor to offer 18-core and 36-thread.

For the cheapest series, the Core X family starts with Core i5-7640X. This processor is sold for US $ 242 or about Rp 3.2 million which offers 4 cores and 4 threads. Furthermore there is the Core i7 X-Series, which is offered starting from 8-to-16-thread core chips, up to US $ 599 (about Rp8 million).

As for Core i9, Intel offers four models. However, these four models do not include the i9 Extreme that has been mentioned previously. These four types start at a price of US $ 999 or about Rp13 million for 10-core / 16-thread. The highest series sold $ 1,699 or equivalent to Rp22, 6 million for 16-core / 32-thread chips.

All new Core X desktop processors are designed to run on the Intel X299 motherboard chipset. This chipset will be out on partner products within the next few weeks along with the sales of these processors to the market. Talking about architecture, all these Core X chipsets are built on the latest version of Intel Skylake X. While the two lowest-level processors are built with Kaby Lake X architecture. Both are processors with four cores; I5-7640X and i7-7740X.

Turbo Boost technology is also updated by Intel with Turbo Boost Max 3.0. Again, this update is only done in some models of Core X processors only. Intel stressed that additional core on a particular Core X model will improve multitasking performance. While Turbo Boost Max 3.0 technology ensures each core can achieve improved performance. For the record, Intel claims that the Core X series is 10 percent faster on multithreaded performance than previous generations. This series processor is also 15 percent faster on a single thread.

In addition to announcing high-end Core X processors, Intel also gave some updates about the ranks of upcoming eighth generation of mainstream processors. The Rumours is this chipset will be called Coffee Lake.

Previously, this processor is promised to have a performance increase of 15 percent rather than the eighth generation series Kaby Lake. But yesterday Intel announced that its performance increase is even greater, up to 30 percent better than Kaby Lake. It remains unclear when this Coffee Lake chip will appear on the market.

Advertiser Run Away , Youtube Tightens Content Rules

News Techno – YouTube is tightening video content types that video creators can upload on their platforms. There are a number of rules that will filter out hateful videos. Because, videos like this have made a number of advertisers on Youtube escape. These advertisers run away because their video ads appear in hateful videos. This is the concern of advertisers because it will affect the image of their products.

“We heard clearly from the community of creators and advertisers that YouTube should extend the guidelines on what kind of content is friendly to advertisers,” Ariel Bardin, VP Product Management YouTube, told TechCrunch on Friday.

Cases between YouTube, video creators and advertisers, appearing since last year. The highlight of the case came when PewDiePie, the famous YouTube star, displayed an anti-Jewish message on the video she uploaded.

As a result of that incident Disney broke his contract with PewDiePie by stopping the production of the content they are working on together. Not only Disney, a number of international companies such as AT & T, Verizon, McDonald’s, and Honda, follow-up withdraw their ads from YT, according to the Financial Times.

Prohibited YouTube video

In the new rules YouTube mentions in detail what content is inappropriate to run. For the hate category of tone, YT prohibits video content that promotes messages of discrimination, humiliation, or humiliation about SARA, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender, and other discriminatory symbols.

While in the family category, YouTuber is prohibited from describing family members involved in violent, sexual, and other behaviors. The ban even applies even if used for comedy purposes only. Last point, YT content no longer carelessly uses the language of sedition, demeaning, or insulting a person or group of people.

It should also be noted that the new YT rules were created with the intention of recalling advertisers who previously blurred due to their ad spend appearing in hateful videos as described earlier.

That’s why videos with such characters will still be allowed to circulate on YouTube. However, YT will close the hate speech monetization option.

“There’s no way we can make rules that cover all possible video scenarios, we hope this additional information will be an input on content like what the advertisers do not want,” Bardin added.

Creator resistance

The new regulations invite protests from the creators. Some of them get email from YT that has marked some of their videos that are considered to violate the new YT rules.

Creators react and think YT is not as comfortable anymore. Because, once they can be free to upload whatever video they want. They then make a solidarity action in cyberspace with the tag #YoutubeIsOverParty.

However, Youtube confirms that email is a new way Youtube communicates with creators. So they know that their video is not “ad-friendly”. “We are improving our notifications and processes to ensure better communication for our content creators,” YouTube explains via email as written by Mashable.
