AMD says RX 6000 Big Navi will be ‘by far the most powerful gaming GPU we have ever built’

AMD just announced its new Zen 3-powered Ryzen 5000 series CPUs, but CEO Lisa Su didn’t stop there, ending her presentation with a preview of AMD’s other big PC announcement: the company’s upcoming RX 6000 “Big Navi” GPUs, which it’s set to announce on October 28th.

While full details on the upcoming lineup of graphics cards won’t come until later in October, Su is setting expectations high, promising that the RX 6000 lineup offers “by far the most powerful gaming GPU we have ever built.”

Su also offered a brief preview of what to expect from the company’s top-of-the-line Ryzen 5000 CPUs working together with the new RX 6000 series GPUs, showing a short clip of Borderlands 3 running at 4K resolution at over 60fps at “Badass Quality,” along with benchmarks for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (88fps for 4K gameplay at ultra settings) and Gears 5 (73fps for 4K

‘Future of last mile delivery’: Amazon reveals first custom electric delivery vehicle built with Rivian

Amazon is lifting the hood on one of three custom-designed electric delivery vans it built in partnership with Rivian.

The new vehicle is 100% electric and features various technology such as sensor detection, exterior cameras that provide 360-degree views, Alexa voice integration, and more.

“We combined Rivian’s technology with our delivery logistics knowledge, and the result is what you see here-the future of last mile delivery,” Ross Rachey, director of Amazon’s Global Fleet and Products, said in a blog post.

Rachey noted that Amazon is working to build technology that supports physical charging infrastructure and “enhancements and optimization of our delivery stations.”

Teracube 2e is an eco-friendly phone that’s cheap and built to last

Last year, Teracube released what it called a “sustainable smartphone” meant to combat e-waste with a long warranty and replaceable battery. If you didn’t get that one, you can now get its successor for about a tenth of the price of a new iPhone.

On Tuesday, Teracube announced the follow-up to its environmentally friendly phone that we reviewed earlier this year. It’s called the Teracube 2e and it brings along the promise of a four-year warranty and replaceable battery with slightly less RAM and storage than its predecessor for a noticeably leaner $200 price point. 

And if you pre-order now, Teracube is offering an “early-bird special” price of $99 if you just can’t wait for the 2e.

The Teracube 2e comes with a 6.1-inch display.
