2021 Toyota Gr Supra Exhaust Comparison | 2.0 Vs. 3.0

2021 Toyota GR Supra exhaust comparison | 2.0 vs. 3.0

Toyota introduced a new four-cylinder Supra for the 2021 model year and improved the six-cylinder model, too. You can read about what's new and how the two drive in our First Drive story, but here we're going to talk about how they sound. The video clip mashup is at the top where you can get a taste of what it's like to be on the bumper and inside the respective Supras one after another. 

The Supra 2.0 is the entry-level option now, and the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder produces 255 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. We know it's going to be cheaper, but we're not sure how much cheaper yet. One big step up from the 2.0 brings us to the 3.0, equipped with a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six engine. Toyota added power for 2021, bringing the output up to 382 horsepower and 368 pound-feet of torque — it previously made do with 335 horses and 365 pound-feet of torque. Both engines are pulled directly from BMW and are used in the Supra's platform mate, the BMW Z4.

Autoblog Midsize Truck Comparison | Toyota Tacoma, Ford Ranger, Chevy Colorado, Jeep Gladiator

LAKE LEELANAU, Mich. — Five years ago the midsize truck segment was a one-horse race. The Toyota Tacoma reigned supreme, thanks to a sterling reputation for reliability, great residuals and a fiercely loyal fanbase. Then in 2014, the second-generation Chevrolet Colorado burst onto the scene, injecting life into the stagnant segment and racking up nearly half a million sales through 2018. This led to the reintroduction of the Ford Ranger in 2019 and the new Wrangler-based Jeep Gladiator, that brand's first truck in nearly 30 years.

Although we've driven them all extensively, it was time to see which of these midsize trucks is really the best. We gathered them for a few days in the forests of northern Michigan. Six of us — four editors and a pair of video producers — were on hand to rate the trucks and document the whole affair. The goal? To determine the strongest one overall, using our bespoke scoring formula to see how each truck measured up in critical areas. These trucks have a tougher task than their full-size brethren. They need to pack comfort and utility into a stylish form, while providing value relative to the Silverado, Ford F-150 and Ram 1500.

New Nikon Mirrorless Camera Leak Offers A Size Comparison

New Nikon Mirrorless Camera Leak Offers A Size Comparison

A few days ago, photos surfaced which seemed to show off Nikon’s upcoming mirrorless camera. It was hard to see the details in the camera, but from what we could tell based on the model holding the device, it seems to be slightly larger compared to other mirrorless cameras, although admittedly this could have simply been a matter of perspective.

However it turns out that might not necessarily be the case. According to photos posted on the Xitek Forum (via Nikon Rumors), it shows off the alleged Nikon mirrorless camera compared against Sony’s A7 mirrorless camera. As you can see in the photo above, the Nikon is noticeably bigger compared to the Sony, although it appears that their sensor sizes are the same.

For its latest comparison test, Motor Trend has put the 2018 Lexus LS 500 up against the BMW 740e, Lincoln Continental, and Genesis G90 — the new Lexus flagship ultimately finished second behind the G90:

Sitting in second place by a nose is the Lexus LS 500. The new LS is worlds better than the version it replaces. It's a compelling, fun-to-drive sedan that makes you feel special. "I'm very pleased with the way it drives, and I really like the design," Cortina said. Yet three things sunk the LS: its tight rear seat, user-unfriendly technology, and sticker price.

Nec Accelerates Machine Learning For Vector Computers

NEC accelerates machine learning for vector computers by more than 50 times in comparison to Spark technologies - FareastgizmosNEC has developed a data processing technology that accelerates the execution of machine learning on vector computers by more than 50 times in comparison to Spark technologies. This newly developed data processing utilizes computing and communications technologies that leverage “sparse matrix” data structures in order to significantly accelerate the performance of vector computers in machine learning. NEC has developed middleware that incorporates sparse matrix structures in order to simplify the use of machine learning. As a result, users are able to easily launch this middleware from Python or Spark infrastructures, which are commonly used for data analysis, without special programming.

NEC’s next-generation vector computer is being developed to flexibly meet a wide range of price and performance needs. This data processing technology expands the capabilities of next-generation vector computers to include large-scale data analysis, such as machine learning, in addition to numerical calculation, the conventional specialty of vector computers. NEC will introduce this technology on July 5 at the International Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Computing 2017 (ISPDC-2017) held in Innsbruck, Austria, from Monday, July 3 to Thursday, July 6.
