It’s been a year since Windows 11 became official and going by Microsoft’s new update cycle, the major Windows 11 update aka Windows 11 22H2 update was expected. After releasing the same to the Release Preview Channel, Microsoft has now made the Windows 11 2022 update official for all. The update brings in new features we have heard about previously. Have a look at them.

Windows 11 2022 Update: What’s New?

The new Windows 11 2022 update introduces Tabs in File Explorer, something the tech giant introduced to the beta channel too. The idea is to easily organize all the files. The File Explorer home page will allow quick access to the favorites files, the ability to pin important files, and more. This will be available in October, though.

Sony Updates PS5 with the New “6nm” Oberon Chips

Mid-generation update for video game consoles is an old story, one that can be traced back to the PS2 days, when Sony launched a “slim” version of their console back in 2006. It is something that has been repeated for every console generation since then. So, now that we’re two years into the current console generation, fans are eagerly waiting for what Sony has in store for us this time. But according to many reports, it seems like we are not going to get a mid-gen refresh in the classical sense.

Sony PS5 Gets an Updated Version

Instead, what we are getting is subtle improvements in chip design and the thermal interface, while keeping the larger form factor the same. Teardowns from Youtuber Austin Evans and Angstronomics show us that with the latest model of the PS5 (CFI-1202), Sony has completely redesigned the internals and moved towards a smaller heatsink, different SSD mounting area, and a full redesign of the original motherboard.

But the differences don’t end here, as Angtronimics shows us in their teardown. The new Playstation 5 CFI-1202 is also revealed to have a slightly different APU that is rumored to be the 6nm equivalent of the AMD Zen 2 CPU codenamed “Oberon Plus.”

This move from a 7nm to a 6nm chip has led to a situation where the new PS5 variant has 18.8% more transistor density than the previous iteration and a die size that has shrunk from 300 sq millimeter to just 270 sq millimeters. These improvements when combined, are supposed to increase efficiency and reduce power consumption. We can say that this seems to be largely true, as Evans showed in his video, where the new PS5 consumed 11 watts less than the original “1000” Model.

This is a rather interesting story coming at the heels of a major price bump that Sony has announced for all major regions – with the exception being the United States. Manufacturing advancements usually lead to a decrease in price as the number of raw materials needed for manufacturing decreases with increasing efficiency.

It is further suggested that the new PS5 will cost Sony 12% less to make overall. So is this new update just a way for Sony to increase its profit margins? It seems so, and maybe that is why Sony has been relatively mum about these efficiency improvements. What are your thoughts on the new “Oberon” that the new PS5 ships with? Let us know in the comments below.

Back in April, the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) officially canceled the famous E3 2022 event. Although, it was revealed that the event will return next year. Now, we have official dates for E3 2023, which will kick off in the second week of June.

E3 2023 Dates Revealed

It is revealed that E3 2023 will start on June 13 and go on until June 16 and will be an in-person event. It will take place at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

This time, ESA has collaborated with ReedPop to host E3 2023. For those who don’t know, ReedPop has organized other popular events like PAX, New York Comic Con, Star Wars Celebration, and more in the past.

E3 2023 will invite developers, journalists, publishers, content creators, and more for its first in-person event since the COVID-19 pandemic hit us. It was expected to take place as a physical event this year too but was eventually canceled.

While the reason for cancellation remains unknown, it was probably for ESA to properly prepare for an in-person event instead of going digital.

Registrations for E3 2023 will begin later this year. As for the schedule, there will be digital gaming events on June 11 ahead of the event. The first two days will be mainly for business, the third day will be for business and consumers, and the last day will be consumer-centric.

Details on the gaming event still remain unknown but we expect major companies and developers to participate as E3 makes a return to an in-person setup. So, are you excited about E3 2023? Let us know in the comments section below.
