Patience, patience … Nvidia and AMD explain the shortages of graphics cards
Late last year, Nvidia and AMD both launched their new generation of desktop graphics cards. However, quickly, stocks became scarce. So much so that most cards are now out of stock. The two manufacturers, however, communicated on the shortages of graphics cards. Nvidia said stocks will likely remain low throughout the first quarter, while AMD plans to continue selling its cards on its site to avoid a price spike.
Outage resolved at Bouygues Telecom: the 4G network was severely disrupted
This Wednesday, a major blackout affected the Bouygues Telecom network. It is the mobile infrastructures that have been the victims of this failure, particularly 4G. Two breakdowns were in fact revealed, around 8 am, then 11 am, affecting the agglomerations of Lyon, Lille, Bordeaux or Nantes. Finally, in the afternoon, things were back to normal.
Prixtel unveils the cheapest 5G no-obligation plan on the market
After RED from SFR, Free Mobile or B & You, it is the turn of the virtual operator Prixtel to unveil its first 5G package without commitment. And the least we can say is that it offers a very interesting quantity of data / price ratio. The package is indeed launched from 15 euros per month for 100 GB – before going to 20 euros per month after one year – to 20 euros per month for 150 GB (then 25 euros per month) or 25 euros per me for 200 GB (then 30 euros per month). Suffice to say that with such offers, Prixtel is positioned as one of the players with the most attractive 5G package.
