Most expensive spell in a World Cup: Rashid Khan goes for 110 runs off 9 overs

first_imgRashid Khan, the world’s No.3 ODI bowler, bowled the most expensive spell in World Cup history at Old Trafford on Tuesday. Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan leaked 110 runs off 9 overs as England amassed 397 for 6 off their 50 overs.Last year, Rashid Khan had become the youngest No.1 in the ICC’s rankings for ODI bowlers. Currently ranked 3rd, Rashid had another spectacular stint for Sunrisers Hyderabad and much was expected from him as Afghanistan geared up for their 3rd World Cup.However, Rashid Khan had an ordinary time in the World Cup before the game against England. He returned figures of 1 for 52 against Australia before picking up 2 for 17 against Sri Lanka. He went for 45 runs without picking up a wicket against South Africa.Rashid Khan was to have a nightmarish game against England on a flat pitch.As Eoin Morgan (148), Jonny Bairstow (90) and Joe Root (88) destroyed Afghanistan, Rashid Khan, their biggest star came under the most serious attack.Rashid Khan gave away 110 runs off his 9 overs to bowl the most expensive spell in a World Cup match. His spell is now the second most expensive in World Cup history.Here are the 4 most expensive spells in World Cup history:0/110 (9) Rashid Khan (AFG) v England (2019)2/105 (12) Martin Snedden (NZ) v England (1983)1/104 (10) Jason Holder (WI) v South Africa (2015)2/101 (10) Dawlat Zadran (AFG) v Australia (2015)Meanwhile, Eoin Morgan hit the 4th fastest hundred and broke the record for most sixes in ODI innings. The record was previously held by Rohit Sharma, Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers.England also broke their own record for most sixes in an innings with 25 sixes as they finished with 397 for 6 off their 50 overs – the 6th highest team total in a World Cup match.advertisementAlso Read | Eoin Morgan hits 4th fastest hundred in World Cup historyAlso Read | World Cup 2019: This India team intimidates Pakistan, says Waqar YounisAlso See:last_img read more

Intel promises faster laptops with Ice Lake chips this year

first_img May 30 • Computex 2019: Every announcement you need to know May 30 • Alienware redesigns its thin gaming laptops and offers OLED Intel still has massive challenges. Among them: a PC processor thrust from rival chipmaker Qualcomm; competition with the convenience and connectivity of smartphones; and the loss of its manufacturing technology lead to Samsung and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp. In addition, Apple is rumored to be considering a switch from Intel processors to Arm chips in its laptops. The consumer electronics giant already uses the Arm family of processors in its iPhones and iPads.In a separate plan, called Project Athena, Intel detailed the changes it hopes to bring to PCs. The company aims to enable a PC with processing power, snappy response and long battery life. Today, PC customers often have to choose which of those are a priority and which they’ll sacrifice, but Athena is designed to deliver it all.Finally, Ice Lake’s new manufacturing processIntel executives, describing their product ahead of the Computex show in Taiwan where Ice Lake’s specs were unveiled, were eager to discuss something other than the Sky Lake designs that arrived in 2015. Back then, Intel had a “tick-tock” approach to chip progress. A tick in one year moved to a more advanced manufacturing process, and a tock the next year updated the fundamental chip design, called its microarchitecture.That system collapsed when Intel couldn’t get reliable results from its new manufacturing process with smaller circuitry. It’s been harder for the chip industry to keep pace with the steady progress charted by Moore’s Law, named for Intel co-founder Gordon Moore, but Intel was stalled on 14nm even as TSMC and Samsung moved ahead.Ice Lake is built with electronics features that measure 10 nanometers — about five times the width of a DNA strand. That size lets the company cram twice as much circuitry into a given area compared with today’s 14nm chips. Intel has been stuck on the 14nm “tock.” The company has refined its 14nm process significantly and offered some rare 10nm chips. Still, Ice Lake marks the first serious arrival of 10nm manufacturing. It also introduces a new microarchitecture called Sunny Cove.”We’ve overhauled the microarchitecture to get better performance out of the box,” said Ronak Singhal, Intel’s director of CPU computing architecture. “Your apps will get faster just by moving to the latest hardware.”Intel’s more optimistic tone is evident.”Intel definitely has more spring in their step than they’ve ever had before,” said Anshel Sag, an analyst with Moor Insights and Strategy. “There’s a lot more ambition and excitement within the company, top to bottom.”Smaller circuitry lets Intel put more electronics on the chip, and one of the biggest beneficiaries here will be those who like Intel’s all-purpose Thunderbolt connector. Adding all that circuitry means Ice Lake chips are significantly bigger than they could have been, though, which means Intel can’t make as many of them from each 300mm silicon wafer it sends through its manufacturing lines.As circuitry shrinks, though, chipmakers pile more and more duties onto processors that previously relied on separate chips. “In our history, we never went through an integration of this size since we integrated graphics on Sandy Bridge,” chips Intel debuted in 2011, said Ophir Edlis, a senior principal engineer.Intel not out of the woods yetIce Lake is a big deal for Intel, but it’s not victory.Intel PC group leader Chris Walker holds a 10nm Ice Lake processor. Stephen Shankland/CNET For one thing, its use of 10nm manufacturing will be limited. Processors for desktop PCs — plugged into the wall for power and thus not needing Ice Lake’s better efficiency — will continue to use the Sky Lake design built on the 14nm process. “10nm has ongoing yield issues,” Kanter said, meaning that an undesirably high fraction of chips don’t meet quality standards.Another challenge is that smartphone chipmaker Qualcomm is eager to sell its own Arm-family processors to make PCs work more like phones with long battery life and connections to mobile networks. Microsoft and others used to living in Intel’s world will likely provide the software support that will require.”Microsoft has tried and given up in the past,” said Avi Greengart, an analyst at Techsponential. “But it really looks like Microsoft is going to make the long-term investments needed for Windows on Arm to succeed.” That support is necessary to get computer makers like Asus, Lenovo, HP and Dell to commit their design and sales teams.The Arm-based Apple questionFinally, there’s Apple. It just upgraded its influential MacBooks to ninth-generation Intel Core processors. But moving to Arm processors, as persistent rumors suggest is likely, would be a major blow to Intel. Apple declined to comment on its plans.With Ice Lake, though, Intel can legitimately say it’s again moving forward, improving power and performance.It expects improvements over Ice Lake’s Sunny Cove microarchitecture — Willow Cove in 2020 and Golden Cove in 2021. Intel’s next-generation 7nm manufacturing process is due to go online in 2021, too, shrinking circuitry further. And its Foveros chip-stacking technology could enable more performance and flexibility.”Things haven’t been as exciting in the processor world for many years,” said Christopher Voce, a Forrester analyst. With Ice Lake, though, “Everything they’ve shown is impressive. They turned it up a notch.”Originally published May 27.Update, May 28, 12:53 p.m. PT: Adds more detail about Thunderbolt. Meet Intel’s Ice Lake processor, due to speed up PCs in 2019 After four years, Intel finally has a new processor design. And it’s something the company doesn’t have to be ashamed of. Ice Lake — officially Intel’s 10th-generation Core processor — clocks in at roughly 18% faster than its predecessor, Intel said. The processor’s graphics speed is 50% to 80% faster, and dedicated circuitry will boost AI software and double video-handling speeds. The new processor also has built-in Thunderbolt support for faster connections to external devices, and a companion chip brings improved Wi-Fi 6 wireless networking. It’s also got better gaming performance, with Intel demoing an Ice Lake laptop playing Destiny 2 at its Computex keynote.The new chip kickstarts Intel’s manufacturing process, which stalled with the previous Sky Lake design. The earlier chip was supposed to be on the market for two years, but Intel instead extended its life with modest tweaks while working through its manufacturing problems. Ice Lake will likely usher in thinner, faster and more capable laptops. Software should also improve to take advantage of the more powerful brains that can run it. Combined, we might actually have a reason to put our phones down and upgrade our PCs.”Is there enough here to catalyze customers into saying, ‘Hey, I want to look at this new laptop?”‘ said David Kanter, an analyst at Real World Tech. “The answer is yes.” Computex 2019 • Share your voice Laptops Computers See All Tags Post a comment reading • Faster 10th-gen Ice Lake laptop chip gives Intel some of its mojo back 0 Computex 2019 May 29 • The outrageous computer cases of Computex 2019 May 29 • The laptops of tomorrow will make us even more productive — and it’s terrifying 16 Photos Qualcomm Processors ARM Asus Dell HP Intel Lenovo Microsoft Samsung Applelast_img read more

Vimeo Becomes Latest Service to Remove Infowars Accounts

first_img Popular on Variety IAC-owned video hosting service Vimeo removed two accounts belonging to Infowars.com for violating its terms of service over the weekend. This latest removal means that Infowars and its founder Alex Jones have now been kicked off three video hosting services.The removal comes after Infowars had uploaded a number of videos this past Friday that had previously been removed from other sites and services. Infowars was also using Vimeo to stream its live programming. Business Insider was first to report the removal.Alex Jones and Infowars have been on the defensive ever since Apple removed the show from its podcast directory a little over a week ago. Facebook and YouTube followed suit soon after, deleting channels and pages associated with the site. Spotify, Stitcher and others also removed the site’s podcasts from their services. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.
