Sony announces INZONE brand for gaming hardware including peripherals
After getting rumored for weeks, Sony has finally announced its hardware brand that is not only for the PlayStation consoles but also for other platforms like Xbox and PCs. The Sony INZONE brand will be the Japanese tech giant’s hardware brand for gamers that will comprise cutting-edge hardware like monitors, headsets, and more. On Tuesday, the brand announced its first INZONE monitors and headsets. The INZONE monitors come in different models and offer features like up to 240Hz refresh rate, 4K screen resolution, and 1ms response time. On the other hand, the INZONE headsets come in three different models offering custom spatial audio profile support, 32 hours of battery, and digital noise cancellation. Sony INZONE Gaming Monitors Sony has finally made gaming hardware that’s not just meant for its own PlayStation consoles. The Sony INZONE M9...

Materials challenges and opportunities for quantum computing hardware

F1.large
Combatting noise on the platformThe potential of quantum computers to solve problems that are intractable for classical computers has driven advances in hardware fabrication. In practice, the main challenge in realizing quantum computers is that general, many-particle quantum states are highly sensitive to noise, which inevitably causes errors in quantum algorithms. Some noise sources are inherent to the current materials platforms. de Leon et al. review some of the materials challenges for five platforms for quantum computers and propose directions for their solution.Science, this issue p. eabb2823Structured AbstractBACKGROUNDThe past two decades have seen intense efforts aimed at building quantum computing hardware with the potential to solve problems that are intractable on classical computers. Several hardware platforms for quantum information...

Arm’s confidential computing uses hardware to ensure security

arm 9
Join Transform 2021 this July 12-16. Register for the AI event of the year. Arm introduced its Armv9 chip platform this week as the first major upgrade for its architecture in a decade. And one of the key pillars was “confidential computing,” a hardware-based security initiative. Arm is a chip architecture company that licenses its designs to others, and its customers have shipped more than 100 billion chips in the past five years. Nvidia is in the midst of acquiring Cambridge, United Kingdom-based Arm for $40 billion, but the deal is waiting on regulatory approvals. During Arm’s press event, CEO Simon Segars said that Armv9’s roadmap introduces the Arm Confidential Compute Architecture (CCA). Confidential computing shields portions of code and data from access or modification while in use, even from privileged software, by performing...

Linde and Bluefors to develop cryogenic hardware for quantum computing

cold storage
This week, the Anglo-German-American industrial gas and chemicals maker Linde announced a new partnership with Finnish refrigeration technology maker Bluefors to develop and scale a product for quantum computing cryogenics. So could this rarefied segment of the refrigeration technologies sector become the next version of the still-red-hot investment market for cold-storage logistics? According to an announcement from the two companies this week, Linde will bring to bear its experience as the world leader in large cryogenic installations, combining with Bluefors’ ultra-low temperature interface, which is needed for quantum computing. Together, the companies say, their combined approach will ensure cryogenics are ready for the “next steps” in large-scale quantum computing, in terms of cooling power, efficiency and robustness.
