Apple products will move to a new type of displays
Recently Min-Chi Kuo, known for his accurate predictions about everything that happens in the camp of Apple, provided a report. There he spoke about the new products that will be released by the enterprise in the near future. The analyst indicated that six Apple devices are expected to be released, all of which will receive mini-LED displays.
One such device is the 14.1-inch MacBook Pro. It replaces the 13-inch model currently on sale.
The new device, along with a new type of screen, will receive a keyboard with a traditional scissor mechanism. Previously, a butterfly mechanism was used here, which has proven itself not in the best way.
Also, the insider spoke about other gadgets of the firm. These include the 27-inch iMac Pro, 16-inch MacBook Pro, 12.9-inch iPad Pro, 10.2-inch iPad, and 7.9-inch iPad mini.

In conclusion, the analyst said that Yabloko engineers intend to actively promote the use of mini-LED display technology in their products. It provides high contrast, wide color gamut and accurate color reproduction. These screens are also characterized by low thickness, energy efficiency and fade resistance.
Intel Coming Soon 10th Gen Desktop Processors
Recently, a YouTube video from Dell appeared on the network, where the company advertises new XPS Tower computers. The video says they were equipped with 10th generation Intel Comet Lake processors. This is interesting news, since before that such chipsets were only installed in laptops.
At the moment it is known about the release of the tenth series processors by Intel. The flagship is the 18-core i9-10980XE. However, Engadget claims that these are not 10th, but 9th generation chipsets. It also says that the Comet Lake line uses a 14nm process technology, while main competitor AMD has already switched to 7nm semiconductors.
At the moment some of the company's plans are known. In order to compete successfully, they want to reduce prices and increase hyper-threading of the entire line.
The main struggle in the market will unfold between the above product and the Ryzen 9 family of chips. The disadvantage of Intel products is their low energy efficiency. They consume up to 300 watts at maximum load.
AMD will release its fourth-gen Ryzen in Q3 this year, but what Intel's response is is not yet known.
