2022 Lexus IS500 Prototype First Ride: Yep, It’s Got a V-8

  2022 Lexus IS500 Prototype First Ride: Yep, It’s Got a V-8 Those of you waiting for the Lexus IS F sport sedan to return … keep waiting. And we don’t mean that in a vague, open-ended sense. While Lexus has no official plans to bring back the eight-cylinder track-ready F version of its compact IS sedan, it is about to release something that’s at least 90It is basically an IS350 F Sport model with the old IS F's 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V-8 engine in place of the 3.5-liter V-6. Given how today's IS descends directly from the previous-generation model—whose lineup included a full F—the IS500 is kinda, sorta, a new IS F. Having just ridden in a prototype IS500, the capital-F feels are certainly there.

TSMC, the largest chip manufacturer in the world, will raise its prices by up to 20 percent. This is likely to affect the prices of smartphones up to cars. Allegedly, the iPhone 13 could be more expensive.

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing, short TSMC, is the largest chip manufacturer in the world and the group responsible for chips of Apple, AMD, Nvidia, Qualcomm and even a handful of Intel processors. In the midst of the persistent semiconductor crisis, the company will increase prices for its products. According to the Wall Street Journal (WSJ), the company is planning to increase prices for its more advanced chips by about ten percent and for less advanced products by about 20 percent. The new pricing could pass the manufacturers to their customers.

iOS 15: Some features are reserved for newer iPhones

 iOS 15: Some features are reserved for newer iPhones Apple had revealed its new OS version for iPhones with many new features as part of WWDC 2021. However, with the release of iOS 15 in autumn, not all devices receive all functions. A look into the fine print. © Apple iOS 15. The Big Update on iOS 15 brings many new features to a lot of compatible iPhones - even the iPhone 6S and the iPhone SE from 2016 are still in the race. But not all announced new features are intended for all models.

TSMC: Chip price increase could result in more expensive products

According to WSJ, TSMC will increase its chippy tours towards the end of this or early next year. The price increases fulfill a double purpose for TSMC to counter the shortage: At short notice, the higher prices expressed demand and enabled customers who depend on chips to keep the offer. The longer term would help higher revenue TSMC to invest aggressively in new capacities, quotes WSJ analysts.

The Taiwan Industry Blade Digitimes (Paywall) (via Macrumors ) wants to get more details about the price increases. Thus, the prices for sub-seven nanometer process technologies should increase by three to ten percent. Apple, TSMC's largest customer, whose orders make up more than 20 percent of the total wafer sales, will experience a price increase of three to five percent, so the sources.

Before the X5 M, BMW Built a Wild 700-HP V-12 Prototype

  Before the X5 M, BMW Built a Wild 700-HP V-12 Prototype The BMW X5 M, you probably know it well by now. It’s what happens when BMW takes the normal X5 and grants it with supercar power and sports car handling. Since its introduction roughly a decade ago, the X5 M has been changing our perception of what a performance SUV can be. And it was inspired by an ultra-powerful prototype SUV from Munich that was far more bonkers than the X5 M that followed: the X5 Le Mans. © Manufacturer BMW X5 LeMans Prototype 20 Just how extreme was the X5 Le Mans? Completely revised bodywork—including a new hood, bulging fenders, and a lower ride height—give the Le Mans a punchy look.

Study shows bottlenecks: 5 million new cars less by chip deficiency

Chip Deficiency: Apple fights with production of iPads and MacBooks

A15 chip could make the iPhone 13 more expensive

to "mitigate the effects of rising costs for profitability," say Apple's reports to increase the cost of the upcoming iPhone 13 Series . At least observers assume that brand manufacturers like Apple could overlap the rising production costs on end customers.

Already in the course of the announcement of the last quarterly figures, Apple warned that the chip deficiency can affect the iPhone production in the third quarter, which ends in September. Already in the first two quarters iPads and Macs were affected by the bottlenecks .

Whether TSMC customers like Apple overall the higher costs for consumers this year, or only at a later date, is currently difficult to estimate. Some other manufacturers of notebooks and other gadgets have already responded to bottlenecks, as WSJ is watching . Both products of HP and Dell and Asus have already become more expensive. In the next few months, the situation should become even more problematic, especially since not only TSMC reports on production bottlenecks, but draws the problem through the entire industry.

2022 Toyota Corolla Cross First Drive: This SUV Is a Corolla Through and Through .
Meet the 2022 Toyota Corolla Cross, the newest addition to Toyota’s SUV fleet. Not that it bears much of a resemblance to the Corolla sedan from the outside—were we in charge of naming vehicles, we would have called it the Highlandette—but in fact there is plenty of Corolla under the skin and behind the doors. Not that it matters: Toyota's intention is to invoke the familiarity of a name that, for millions of motorists, is synonymous with dependable transportation. © Manufacturer 2022 Toyota Corolla Cross LE Barcelona Red 23 The Corolla Cross fits into the lineup between the entry-level C-HR and the ever-expanding RAV4.
