USB-C Updates, Windows 11 Launch

I’ll do my best to bring you some fascinating news. It’s been a calm week, as it generally is before a big launch like the one we’re about to have. In this article, I’ll discuss what’s up with the new USB-C logos and why you should care, the aforementioned debut of Microsoft Windows 11, and Amazon’s New World, which is now out of beta but doesn’t seem to be ready. Let’s get started on this article, shall we? Isn’t USB just USB?

I mean, as long as the connection is secure, everything should go smoothly, right? In fact, though, this isn’t the case. One of the most important things we had to worry about in the past was getting the plugin to work properly. We needed to know if it was USB 1 or 2, as well as the speeds we were dealing with.

Things have got a little more complicated with USB-C, and with the future USB 4 that keeps the same structure, its time to update the device logos.

That has been the case. The most recent wave of Certification upgrades makes the expectations of the cable or device you’re using crystal apparent. Beginning with Certified USB4, the packaging logo will note the speed, and the port will as well. Don’t forget about the power support, as USB 4 can handle up to 240 watts of power chagrin in addition to data, so make sure everything is in order. The labeling for the certified 240-watt cables will come next, as not just any old cable laying around the house will suffice!

Of course, you’ll have the 240 watts labeling on the certified charger. That one is simple: if the logo is missing, don’t assume it will work.

Unless you have a fire extinguisher and a pension for ruining your technology, that is. Got all that? Isn’t it as clear as mud?

Good. Let’s talk about something that’s a lot clearer now. Okay, this is the last news section where I’ll have to talk about Windows 11’s approaching debut. That’s right, if you’ve had enough of Windows 10 and want to try something different, you’ll be able to do so in a matter of days.

USB-C Updates, Windows 11 Release, New World Continues to Kill GPUs, and More

Windows 11

However, if you’re conservative and want to avoid the big ten like me, it doesn’t appear that you’ll be missing out on much. It doesn’t appear that we’re in for a life-changing event, according to Mark Hachman’s complete review on PCWorld.com, which you’ll find linked in the description. After all, his headline “An unneeded alternative for Windows 10” doesn’t bury the lead and puts it right in your face. That isn’t to say that isn’t good, but it might feel like things are changing merely for the sake of changing.

So, are you ready for Windows 11 or will you wait and see what others have to say about it? So, perhaps you should skip the next news item. In the realm of PC gaming, Amazon’s massively multiplayer online role-playing game The New World has finally arrived, and it’s the largest release of the year so far on Valve’s Steam platform.

During its open beta stage, this game plagued by graphics card-killing bugs, causing quite a commotion. Things should be OK now that the game has gone gold and is available in stores, right?

Don’t hold your breath. All is not well in the New World, according to PCGamesN. It isn’t only EVGA RTX 3090 owners this time. Unfortunately, it appears to be a problem, since further reports of dead GPUs have been received. Killing high-end graphics cards that are currently difficult to obtain is not a good idea. EVGA appears to be the main target once again, although Gigabyte has also been added to the list.

Affected cards, according to user reports, include the RTX 3090. Also the RTX 3080 Ti, 3080, 3060 Ti, and the mobile RTX 3000 Series laptop parts.

Some Radeon owners have reported their GPUs overheating or crashing, although issue does not appear to be fatal. For the time being, I strongly encourage you to avoid this title. Share this information with anyone you know who is excited to play New World. They won’t be surprised if they are locked out. And with that, the calm week comes to an end.

When you see the updated USB-C logos, hopefully you’ll have a better idea of what’s going on. You’ll be able to explain it to your less tech-savvy friends.

Prepare your computers, or don’t, for Windows 11’s upcoming release . Perhaps the upgrade will prevent Amazon’s New World from destroying your graphics card. I wouldn’t put my money on it.
