  • AMD has launched its low-cost Ryzen 3 CPU series, rounding out the mainstream desktop Ryzen lineup for 2017. There are two models, the Ryzen 3 1300X and the Ryzen 3 1200, both of which will be available around the world starting from today. The Ryzen 3 1300X is priced at Rs. 8,899 in India while the Ryzen 3 1200 will cost Rs. 7,599. GST of 18 percent is applicable, which pushes these figures up to roughly Rs. 10,500 and Rs. 8,966 respectively, though street prices can still vary. The company hopes to use low prices to challenge Intel's Core i3 series, which dominates the budget PC space. Both Ryzen 3 models have four physical CPU cores whereas Core i3 CPUs have two cores plus HyperThreading to simulate two more. The formula of more cores at lower prices has worked well for AMD at the high end and mid-range with its Ryzen 7 (Review) and Ryzen 5 (Review) lines respectively, where performance differences can be significant. AMD has called this an intentional disruption of the cores-..

  • Ever since Ford announced it would offer the 10-speed automatic transmission in every engine configuration for the redesigned 2018 Ford F-150, we have been champing at the bit to hear more. When we at The Drive reviewed the 2018 Ford F-150 4x4 with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 and 10-speed automatic transmission not long ago, we were getting approximately 24 miles per gallon on the highway and 19 mpg in the city—well above the rated 17 mpg city and 22 mpg highway it was rated at. Now, Ford has released updated fuel economy ratings for all the new engine and transmission pairings.The most notable new F-150 from a fuel economy standpoint is the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 configuration. When combined with the 10-speed automatic transmission (y'know, then only available combination in 2018), the truck is rated at 19 mpg city and 24 mpg highway with four-wheel-drive, and 20/26 mpg with two-wheel-drive. If the truck follows the same trend as the Ford F-150 we reviewed, it wouldn't be ou..
