Dax food delivery robot, a more interactive experience with humans

Daxbot continues to promote the Dax delivery robot, an artificial intelligence-driven robot that follows GPS towards its destination. The market for delivery robots is continually expanding, with restaurants teaming up with tech developers interested in finding new solutions to reach our doorstep.

The Dax robot stands three feet high and is two feet wide and weighs in at a hefty 120 pounds. Storage capacity includes the ability to carry two medium pizzas with drinks. Dax has a 2.5-mile delivery range but has completed a 5K (3.1-miles), so can get in a little extra distance when necessary.

The robot travels at a respectable travel speed of four miles per hour, though could travel upwards of 20 mph without a limiter in place. Built-in cameras and sensors help Dax avoid obstacles and cross streets safely, though can learn and build on the customized DaxOS.

Anthony Garreffa | Video Cards & GPUs | Oct 5, 2022 8:49 PM CDT

Now that Intel's new Arc A770 and Arc A750 graphics cards have been sent to (cherry-picked) reviewers, UL Benchmarks have unleashed a new 3DMark feature test.

The new 3DMark feature test will benchmark Intel's new XeSS, its new AI-boosted upscaling technology that works similar to AMD FSR (FidelityFX Super Resolution) and NVIDIA DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling). The company provides a nifty 3DMark Intel XeSS frame inspector tool, something that lets you check out the comparison between image quality in an awesome interactive side-by-side comparison between native rendering, and Intel XeSS AI-boosted rendering.

3DMark's new XeSS feature test is based on the scene from the 3DMark Port Royal benchmark, which runs two times to show the effect of XeSS on both performance, and image quality. The first run of the XeSS feature test will measure your baseline performance, where it will render the scene with temporal anti-aliasing (TAA) at the native display output resolution.

Anthony Garreffa | Video Cards & GPUs | Oct 5, 2022 7:17 PM CDT

Intel's new Arc A770 and Arc A750 graphics cards have now reached cherry-picked reviewers, but there's one custom Arc A770 graphics card that has my attention: Acer's interesting new Predator Arc A770 BiFrost graphics card.

The new Acer Predator Arc A770 BiFrost graphics card has been picked up, and reviewed by Israeli tech site Plonter.info, with a full review you can check out here. Plonter has a few awesome things here: they're the first media outlet to review the Acer Predator Arc A770 BiFrost graphics card, as well as the first outlet to review a custom Arc graphics card. Congrats, guys!

Acer has built a very interesting card here, with a full custom design with a dual-fan cooler (turbine extract + axial throughput) while it packs the higher chunk of 16GB GDDR6 memory, versus 8GB GDDR6 memory that will come on some custom Arc A770 graphics cards. Intel's own in-house Arc A770 Limited Edition graphics card has 16GB GDDR6, but AIB partners can choose between 8GB and 16GB GDDR6 on their custom Arc A770 designs.

Intel Arc A770 Limited Edition GPU: cherry-picked reviews are now live

Anthony Garreffa | Video Cards & GPUs | Oct 5, 2022 6:38 PM CDT

Intel reached out to me a few weeks ago now asking for my address so they could send me Arc A770 and Arc A750 graphics cards, but after covering Arc negatively -- not just opinion pieces, but sourcing leaks and rumors -- got me blacklisted. Don't worry, Intel promises that I might get a card, one day.

Well, after the tiniest graphics card sampling round in my career, and now Intel's new Arc A770 and Arc A750 graphics cards are in the hands of... well... people who obviously don't push Intel back too much. I think 95% or more of the reviewers who were cherry-picked, were even alive when Intel launched the i740 on AGP... but I digress.

Intel's new Arc Alchemist GPU architecture was initially unveiled close to FOUR YEARS ago back in January 2019, when Intel posted an inspirational video on Twitter that featured ex-RTG boss and now AXG boss Raja Koduri, as well as former Intel CEO Bob Swan. In the video, Intel was recruiting staff, while Raja was saying that Intel was effectively starting from zero in discrete graphics.

Today Brazil's Administrative Council for Economic Defense (CADE) issued an approval for Microsoft's $68.7 billion buyout of Activision-Blizzard. Brazil is the second worldwide regulator to approve the deal. Saudi Arabia's General Authority for Competition issued a no objection certification in late August.

CADE's filing says the regulatory body "approves the merger without restrictions." This is following weeks of testimonials, data-sifting, and direct oppositions from Sony legal counsel. In August, Sony representation said that "no rival can overtake Call of Duty," arguing that exclusivity of the $30 billion franchise could impact Sony's revenues and harm competition.

Derek Strickland | Gaming | Oct 5, 2022 2:42 PM CDT

The new Witcher games and Cyberpunk 2077 sequel will get multiplayer in some fashion, but CD Projekt RED says singleplayer comes first.

Back in 2016, we reported that Cyberpunk 2077 would have multiplayer. Years later, CD Projekt confirmed they were working on a standalone AAA Cyberpunk game while also announcing The Witcher would get multiplayer as well. While official details are light, CD Projekt continues discussing their plans to bring online multiplayer integration into their biggest games.

In a recent company strategy meeting, CD Projekt management says that multiplayer will be a core focus of the company's efforts moving forward. Multiplayer will be designed to "enhance the singleplayer experience," and will be included in Project Sirius, a new Witcher game in development at The Molasses Flood.

Michael Hatamoto | Electric Vehicles & Cars | Oct 5, 2022 11:11 AM CDT

Hennessey Performance has taken the factory Ford Bronco Raptor and heavily modified it to create the all-new VelociRaptor 500 Bronco. Admittedly not something required to do for a new vehicle, though Hennessey prides itself on adjusting and allowing a vehicle to really stand out on its own.

The improved Ford Bronco now has 20 percent more output, including 500 horsepower and 550 lb-ft of torque total. The stock Bronco Raptor delivers 418 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque, so the modifications aren't necessarily needed - but Hennessey just elevates every vehicle that the company touches.

Custom VelociRaptor bumpers are installed, new 10-spoke alloy wheels, custom VelociRaptor 500 Bronco badging, and Hennessey Heritage graphics are added. For the interior, embroidered head restraints and all-weather floor mats are included, along with a numbered plaque.
