Refreshed 2019 Buick Envision Gets Sharper Edges, Optional Nine-speed Transmission

Refreshed 2019 Buick Envision gets sharper edges, optional nine-speed transmission

After 18 months on the market in the United States, the Buick Envision took its place as the third-best-selling vehicle among Buick's eight models, slotting in behind the Encore and Enclave. January sales this year jumped 13.7-percent year-over-year, just a few hundred behind the Enclave. Now, the Chinese-made compact SUV gets a modest makeover, but buyers of the 2019 Buick Envision will need to reach up into the upper trims to access the best of what's new.

The big mechanical upgrade comes with the option of GM's Hydra-Matic 9T50 nine-speed automatic instead of standard the six-speed. However, that appears to be limited to just two of the five available Envision trims: Premium I and Premium II. The base, Preferred, and Essence models stick with the six-speed only.

Kddi And Samsung Break Track Record In High-speed 5g Mobility Test

KDDI and Samsung Break Track Record in High-Speed 5G Mobility Test - FareastgizmosKDDI and Samsung today announced the completion of a comprehensive set of 5G tests which demonstrate the viability and performance of 5G millimeter wave mobility solutions at speeds over 190km per hour which is the fastest record in the world. In addition, KDDI and Samsung also demonstrated a successful handover scenario, with Samsung's 5G device attaching to the 5G base station as it approached the service area, and successfully being handed over to the target cell at a speed of 192km per hour (GPS speed).

The demonstration, which took place at Everland SPEEDWAY in Korea, involved a battery of individual tests to examine the performance of Samsung's end-to-end 5G mmWave technology. Specifically, as a vehicle accelerated from 0 to 205km per hour on the race track between multiple 5G base stations, the test measured and evaluated a variety of metrics, including handover interruption time, uplink and downlink throughput stability, and latency stability (or "jitter").
In February of this year, Samsung and KDDI successfully demonstrated 5G handover capability in an urban city environment at speeds of up to 60km/h on public roads. Both companies are in discussion with 5G trials for multiple 5G service cases. The successful results highlight the potential and capability of 5G to support a wide variety of future service scenarios.
One of the most exciting prospects of 5G technology is the potential for new and highly specialized service scenarios that go beyond traditional smart device connectivity. 5G's ability to deliver on this promise is directly tied to its ability to meet the unique performance needs of a wide number of increasingly-connected industries, from Smart City IoT to Connected Cars and more.

2018 Mazda3 Gets Low-speed Automatic Braking Across The Board

2018 Mazda3 gets low-speed automatic braking across the board

Though the Mazda3 is mostly carry-over for the 2018 model year, Mazda has sweetened the deal on all trim levels ever so slightly with more standard equipment. Most notable is the inclusion of low-speed automatic emergency braking on the base Sport trim. That makes the feature standard on every version of Mazda3, and it's also included on manual transmission models. Touring's big change is the inclusion of the 184-horsepower 2.5-liter engine as the standard powertrain. This means you'll only be able to get the 2.0-liter engine on the Sport trim. Finally, Grand Touring gets a lighting upgrade with self-leveling LED lights up front along with LED taillights and running lights.

Mazda also supplies these additional features while barely changing prices. The Sport trim level increases by $250. The Touring trim actually drops in price by $355 for the sedan, and an impressive $1,555 for the hatchback (when compared with the existing Touring 2.5 trim level). Grand Touring pricing remains the same as the 2017 model year.

Sony A9: More Speed, Less Dynamic Range

Sony a9: more speed, less dynamic range

The Sony a9 is a powerhouse of technology, particularly when it comes to speed and autofocus. But does its image quality stack up? We've taken an initial look at Raw and JPEG image quality and have come away impressed, but how does the a9 stack up in terms of dynamic range?

At the recent launch in New York City, I had a chance to shoot our standard ISO-invariance test but on a real-world scene (our studio scene isn't so portable...). Have a look at the performance below.

Cutting Edge Ram Speed Will Be Twice As Fast

Next-Gen RAM Speed Will Be Twice As Fast

No one at any point longed for their PC to be slower. There’s dependably a consistent drive to get more execution out of the segments that power our machines and the RAM is one of the parts that extremely essential to the whole experience. JEDEC, the association entrusted with setting measures for the business, has affirmed that it’s taking a shot at outline determinations for the cutting edge DDR RAM and that it’s going to be twice as quick as the present era RAM.

In hypothesis, the DDR5 RAM ought to offer twofold the bandwidth and thickness of DDR4 RAM. It will likewise be speedier and more power productive because of enhanced channel proficiency. In the event that history is any sign, the DDR5 RAM will advance toward top of the line PCs and journals first so gamers can take full preferred standpoint of the additional execution that it provides.
