MediaTek at its Executive Virtual Summit 2020 on Tuesday unveiled the Dimensity 700 as the latest 7nm 5G chipset for “mass-market” smartphones. The new system-on-chip (SoC) comes over three months after the Taiwanese chipmaker brought the Dimensity 720 as a solution for mid-range 5G phones. Alongside the new Dimensity SoC, MediaTek launched two new chipsets for Chromebooks — the MT8195 and the MT8192. The company also teased its plans to bring a new high-end, 5G-supporting SoC for smartphones that would be based on 6nm process technology and include ARM Cortex-A78 cores.Architecture-wise, the MediaTek Dimensity 700 SoC is quite similar to the Dimensity 720. The chip includes two high-performance ARM Cortex-A76 cores at a maximum clock speed of 2.2GHz, along with six Cortex-A55 cores at 2.0GHz. It is also capable of being paired with up to 12GB of LPDDR4x RAM at a frequency of 2,133MHz and UFS 2.2 two-lane storage, along with up to 1Gbps transfer speeds.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – Unlike the Dimensity 720 SoC that comes with an ARM Mali-G57 MC3 GPU, the Dimensity 700 SoC includes a slightly inferior Mali-G57 MC2 GPU. This might be a move to save some cost.Nevertheless, the Dimensity 700 SoC supports full-HD+ display with up to 90Hz refresh rate. The chip is also capable of supporting up to 64-megapixel primary camera sensors, along with artificial intelligence (AI) camera enhancements, such as AI bokeh as well as AI colour and beauty features.In terms of connectivity, the MediaTek Dimensity 700 SoC comes with a 5G modem that supports carrier aggregation to deliver up to 2.77Gbps download speeds and seamless handover between two 5G connection areas. There is also dual-5G SIM support that will allow users to have two 5G networks on their smartphones simultaneously. For power efficiency even on 5G networks, the chipset includes MediaTek 5G UltraSave that is touted to intelligently manage the operating mode of the 5G modem to enhance battery life.- Advertisement –last_img read more

first_imgThree London boroughs that currently jointly manage £2.3bn (€2.9bn) in local authority pension assets are to review their resource-sharing arrangement.The London borough of Hammersmith and Fulham (H&F), which in May’s local elections went from being run by the Conservative Party to being a Labour Party borough, said a review of all its joint services with two neighbouring councils would look to improve performance.The borough currently jointly administers a number of its services with Westminister and Kensington and Chelsea councils, which have local authority pension schemes (LGPS) worth £880m and £630m, respectively.Hammersmith and Fulham’s own £763m LGPS currently shares a treasury department with the two other councils, with the officers conducting the required due diligence for all asset management and other mandate awards. However, decisions on where each individual fund should invest remains with the local council, although all three have a number of providers in common.The review will be led by Andrew Adonis, a transport secretary under former Labour prime minister Gordon Brown.A spokesman for H&F confirmed that all areas of cooperation would be reviewed, including the tri-borough treasury set-up, but said it was too early to provide details.In a statement on the review, the council said it would examine the potential for widening its model of cooperation beyond the three local authorities.Adonis stressed the need for value-for-money arrangements due to the restricted budgets facing councils.“The tri-borough arrangements are innovative but it is right that, after more than two years of operation, there is an independent review,” he said.“I hope we will be able to compare and contrast with other effective organisations and offer some useful insights and proposed ways forward.”In a report presented at H&F’s most recent pensions committee, the council noted it was happy with the “benefits of resilience and sharing of ideas” since the tri-borough treasury team had been in place since 2012.“It is also leading to more competitive fees from external providers through joint procurement and common mandates where they are appropriate for each fund,” it said.In addition to cooperating on investment management matters, two of the boroughs are undertaking a joint tendering exercise to appoint a new custodian, while all three are advising London Councils on the proposed launch of a London-wide common investment vehicle (CIV) for the capital’s LGPS.A move away from the cooperative approach on pension matters is unlikely despite the review, as the three councils have often been championed as an example of how cooperation can lower costs for the LGPS.Additionally, the Department for Communities and Local Government recently concluded a consultation that looked at greater efficiencies within the LGPS, with one of the suggestions being the launch of a limited number of LGPS-wide CIVs.last_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on February 4, 2013 at 11:48 pm Contact David: dbwilson@syr.edu | @DBWilson2 It’s a grueling stretch of the season for Syracuse. Away games, home games, then away games again. The Orange has finally played some close games, games against tough competition and games of different styles.It’s a stretch that’s yielded some losses, but also some memorable moments. And it continues Tuesday.“We’re in the midst of a few short turnarounds and we’ve just got to keep our bodies warm, keep moving, stay healthy,” SU head coach Quentin Hillsman said, “and I think that’s the most important thing.”When No. 24 Syracuse travels to Cincinnati on Tuesday for a 7 p.m. tipoff, it will be the Orange’s (18-3, 6-2 Big East) seventh game in the past three weeks. Every Saturday tip during the stretch has been followed by a quick turnaround on either Tuesday or Wednesday. On Tuesday against the Bearcats (8-13, 0-8), though, will be the first time a road game has followed a home tilt during the stretch.The quick turnaround also provides a quick change of styles. Saturday’s opponent, Providence, is a team that likes to push the pace. Cincinnati, on the other hand, slows the game down. The Bearcats rank at the bottom of the Big East with 52.7 points per game and, despite being win-less in the conference, sit in the middle of the pack in scoring defense, allowing 58 points per game.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut none of that fazes SU. It just plays its style.“We’re looking to do the same thing night in and night out. We’re looking to play Syracuse basketball,” guard Carmen Tyson-Thomas said. “We’re looking to push the tempo, get offensive rebounds, look high-low and run our scheme, so regardless if the team plays faster or slower, we’re still going to do stuff the same way, we still look at it like another game.”For much of the season, the Orange has adjusted well. It has started slow at times, but has always found a way to pull out of its early game slumps. Both of the games Syracuse has lost during this recent stretch came against teams that received votes in The Associated Press Top 25 Poll. Those aren’t the games the Orange is worried about.It’s the slow starts against Seton Hall and the Friars. Games in which SU should be in control throughout, but often doesn’t take over until the end of the first half.“When we play down to the level of our competition, or we play to the level of Providence or any other team, we’re not being ourselves. It’s tough for us to play,” Tyson-Thomas said. “But when we bring Syracuse basketball to the table we do very good.”Depth and defense have let the Orange play the way it wants.Even with three players, including two rotation staples, sidelined against the Pirates, SU played 11 different players. Back at full strength against PC, Syracuse played 14 players. Nine played more than five minutes.“We can put five in, five out any time on the floor and because we’ve been able to do that, that’s a really good team,” Tyson-Thomas said.Syracuse held SHU to 34 points last week. The defense forced 27 turnovers against the Friars and grabbed 13 steals in the first half alone. Even the interior defense shined. SU center Kayla Alexander blocked four shots, accounting for more than half of the Orange’s six rejections.“Defense played a big role in that, too,” Alexander said after Syracuse’s win against PC. “ … Defense momentum leads to offense, too.”Cincinnati should provide the Orange a chance to do more of the same. The Bearcats’ lowly offense should be stifled even more against a stellar SU press. Syracuse’s deep bench should once again carry it during a rigorous stretch.That is, as long as it controls the game.Said Hillsman: “I’m really happy with where we are and we’ve got to continue just to build on this season and build on it before we go and get ready against Cincinnati.” Commentslast_img read more
