A few features have been scaled back and the S20 FE has slightly worse cameras, a lower resolution screen, and less RAM. But it remains a relatively high-performance phone with lots of

Is an Intel Core i3 okay for gaming? | Ask an expert

Q: Will an Intel Core i3 processor work for playing games? If yes, will it work if the PC only has 4GB of RAM?

Compared to flagship processors with eight or more cores, contemporary quad-core Core i3 CPUs may seem too weak to handle games. If you have an older Core i3 chip with just two cores and four threads, it might seem even less capable.

But you don’t need to have mid-tier gear for PC gaming. (In fact, we built a $300 gaming PC using a processor that’s more budget than a Core i3 processor.) Your rig won’t be anywhere near as fast as if you had a Core i5 part, but you can still pair it with a graphics card. We suggest selecting a similarly affordable graphics card, with $150 to $200 as the maximum spent. Then tweak the settings until you find a good balance between visual

Microsoft told, ‘We’re not happy’ by GitHub contributors to open-source .NET Core WPF

It’s been two years since Microsoft open-sourced Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), its .NET Core UI framework for building Windows desktop applications, but contributors aren’t happy with how Microsoft has handled the project. 

Microsoft open-sourced WPF, along with Windows Forms and the Windows UI XAML Library (WinUI), in December 2018 on GitHub. It open-sourced WPF after discouraging developers from porting WPF apps to .NET Core from .NET Framework. 

Now a Microsoft survey among its GitHub community reveals how satisfied contributors are with its handling of WPF, and other open-sourced projects, including Windows Forms, ASP.NET Core, the .NET runtime, .NET software development kit (SDK), .NET Entity Framework (EF) Core, and the .NET Roslyn compiler platform. It gained 191 responses.  

Contributor satisfaction is fairly positive for four of the five repositories covered in the survey with the exception of WPF. Eleven contributors to WPF are either ‘extremely dissatisfied’ or ‘moderately dissatisfied’ with the

The “Synergistic Core” of the Human Brain?

A new preprint makes a bold claim: that “synergistic interactions are the fundamental drivers of complex human cognition”

What does this mean, and what are the implications for neuroscience?

Authors Andrea I. Luppi et al. of the University of Cambridge study a new aspect of brain organization: synergy between brain regions. Some networks of the brain are more synergistic than others, and synergistic networks tend to be involved in complex cognition.

So what is synergy? Luppi et al. define it in accordance with the mathematical framework called MMI-PID. Two variables are said to have a synergistic interaction to the extent that the future state of both variables can only be predicted from the past state of both variables together, not from the past state of either variable alone.

As an example, consider two balls moving in space. The two balls might or might not collide. If we know the current

Japan’s SMEs Continue To Be At The Core Of Semiconductor Production Toward The Age Of 5G

The ongoing application of 5G as the standard network for communication devices will have a greater impact than just being able to upload photos to social media faster. The improved connections and communication that 5G brings can help control your car and your electrical appliances, monitor the environment and even help perform medical surgery remotely. As we witness 5G needs semiconductors that respond to the higher communication speed and frequency, it may be worth noting that crucial parts of the semiconductor manufacturing process continue to be originated with small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Japan.

Chemical Purity behind High-level Semiconductor

Small is beautiful in today’s 5G world and the circuits of a semiconductor are measured in nanometers, or millionths of a
