NVIDIA Lost Intel Key Engineer
This is mainly discussed in the video, but the short part is as follows: GN has received the word from Intel and NVIDIA contacts that Honorable Engineer Tom Petersen will move to Intel. Petersen follows Raja Coduri, former head of AMD's Radeon Group, Chris Hook, former AMD marketer, as well as several former members of the technical media, including Ryan Shrout and Kyle Bennett.
For those who do not follow people in the industry, it's a move you should take care of. Tom Petersen is the advocate of NVIDIA's consumer, partner and media interests and is the main driver for concerns and questions about GPU capabilities. Petersen was largely responsible for building an API for overclocking, building or managing Software Testing Software (FCAT, FCAT VR), GPU Frequency Increasing and Frequency Response, as well as a Critical Point of Contact for both partners and media. NVIDIA's Petersen deviation has two corners: on the one hand, it's exciting, as we now think Intel has more chances to create something competitive, and NVIDIA desperately needs competition to keep its behavior under control; on the other hand, NVIDIA is losing one of its critical team members who have kept it based on reality and consumers. We are not sure how this will affect NVIDIA, but it will certainly be positive for Intel.
ASUS Has Spread Malware
According to Kaspersky Lab, the ASUS Update Utility is hijacked and used to distribute malware ShadowHammer is a malicious backdoor that is masked as a "critical" security update for which is believed to have affected more than 1
The threat was discovered in January 2019, and is believed to have taken place between June and November 2018. Making the attack so difficult to detect was the fact that the Trojan program uses authenticated certificates ("ASUSTeK Computer Inc." ) and was hosted on ASUS servers designed for updates. a message, a legitimate security update, and a diagnostic tool that users can use to see if they are affected. There is no excuse or indication that ASUS ignores the issue too seriously as the press release attempts to master the security firm's findings that detected the attack.
According to Kaspersky, ShadowHammer may be the largest offering. chain attack ever discovered, rivaling Shadowpad and CCleaner attacks.
Processors of Processors of the 9th Generation Switch to New Steps
And ASUS and Gigabyte have prepared BIOS updates for their respective 300th Circuit Boards, Reported to Prepare Platforms for New 9th Generation Processors with New Step
Intel's current generation chips use stepping identifier P0, but will soon switch to stepping identifier R0. According to ASUS, the newer chips using the step identifier R0 will come in the second quarter. So far, there is no indication of what the new step will bring.
Intel uses revised steps to correct "errors" as well as increase the clock and TDP capabilities. Typically, Intel will issue "Specification Update" with detailed changes like this one. So we will certainly know more when the processors are properly put into the wild.
In what was unprecedented for Samsung, the company recently released a statement – or rather a warning – that its first quarter earnings expectations are expected to miss the estimate  "The company expects the range of price reductions in core chip products to be higher than expected," Samsung said. As we noted in our latest episode, memory prices are currently in a "free fall," with prices expected to peak to the lowest levels that have not been seen since 2011
Also, Samsung's income has an impact on the slow search for display panels, which is another significant share of Samsung's business. Prices for both the memory and the display, especially the OLED, are expected to recover in the second half of the year.
As noted by Samsung employees, it has never previously provided a statement before the earnings statements. However, after revising its income guidelines for 4Q18 and again for the first quarter of 2019 due to memory prices, Samsung apparently decided it was time to break its code of silence.

PCIe SSDs Approaching Market Share SATA Parity
According to Secrets in Digitimes PCIe, SSDs are becoming more widespread, ready to grow to 50% market share in 2019 and achieve market share with 2.5 "SATA drives. NAND oversupply and a sharp drop in memory prices to 512GB PCIe SSD prices fell 11% in the first quarter of 2019, and 256GB options had similar prices. During the year, 1TB models are also expected to decrease, further reducing the long-established price discrepancy between SATA and PCIe protocols.
ltel Receives Judgment Order Against Former Engineer
Intel and Micron split into a joint venture to develop a non-volatile memory each company agrees to independently pursue its own interests with non-volatile memory – Intel with Optane and 3D Xpoint, and Micron with QuantX.
Divorce is messy to say, as Intel's former engineer, Doyle Rivers, jumped on Micron, as claimed by Intel IP and business secrets. Intel has subsequently filed a lawsuit against the Rivers, and Rivers, Micron and Intel have been locked in a legal fight since then.
Intel has recently been awarded a court order stating that Rivers "will not hold, use or disclose any Intel's proprietary, proprietary or proprietary secret documents related to 3D XPoint or branded Intel Optane ™ products, including the staff working on these products that he acquired during work for Intel, and which contains information that Intel has not disclosed outside of Intel, except under a non-disclosure agreement that protects its confidentiality. "
In addition, the court order gives Rivers three days to return all the data that may be in his possession, according to Intel's judgment and lawsuit. According to his lawyer, there is nothing in the river that is in danger to go back or hide.
"Mr. Rivers has nothing to return," said Daniel Sacaguchi, a lawyer who protects Rivers. "We continue to accept the position that Intel's claims are heavily exaggerated."
Intel claims that Rivers has left the company with sensitive files on a USB device; River dismisses these allegations, stating that the files are of personal and sentimental value and in no way constitute IP or theft of business secrets. The registry has a detailed breakdown of the events so far, if you want to learn more.
DNC Sequence Successfully Used as a Storage
Obviously, DNA makes a pretty good substrate in memory. Sponsored by DARPA and Microsoft, scientists Christopher Takahashi, Bihlin Nguyen, Karin Strauss, and Louis Cseze with the University of Washington demonstrated evidence of the concept of DNA as a storage medium.
"Our device encodes data in a DNA sequence that is then recorded in a DNA oligonucleotide using a custom DNA synthesizer, pooling for liquid storage and read using a nanoporous sequencer and a new minimal preparation protocol. We demonstrate a 5-byte automated 5-byte modular design cycle that allows expansion as new technology becomes available. "
Using this system, a 5-byte message (HELLO) was successfully written, stored and read without data loss for 21 hours
Scientists have long advertised the potential of DNA as a storage medium and its potential on silicone and Magnetic tape. Scientists and companies such as Intel, Micron and Microsoft have invested in DNA storage. Most archival data in the world is stored on a magnetic tape, but there is hope that someday in the not-too-distant future DNA will become a de facto archival storage technology.
