Graphene is one of the most fascinating natural materials in the 21st century. What makes graphene incredibly special is its tensile strength, conductivity, weight and thinness. With a height of just a single atom arranged in a hexagonal lattice, graphene enables limitless possibilities in applications. It’s the same material that’s found in aerospace aircrafts of NASA.
It’s incredible how much the semiconductor space, specifically in desktop computing, has changed over the past few years. Intel has been a dominant player for the better part, until AMD’s Zen and subsequently Zen 2 architecture came into the picture. For the longest time, quad-core processors ruled the roost. Now we’re talking six, eight, ten cores, and more. Most importantly, prices have been driven down to the benefit of consumers.
MSI is first out of the gate to announce custom graphic cards based on NVIDIA’s just-launched new generation GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs. The second generation of RTX represents the “greatest innovation leap in the history of gaming GPUs,” says NVIDIA. MSI will roll out two RTX 30 Series-based product lines—the flagship Gaming Trio and mainstream Ventus series.
