Microsoft announced it's blocking the installation of Windows 10 May 2019 Update on systems with external storage solutions like USB devices or attached SD cards. On a support page, the software giant explains incorrect drive reassignment can occur on these systems.

A future Windows 10 build will contain a bug fix. At the moment, there's a simple workaround: disconnect all USB and SD storage devices before installing the update.
Inappropriate drive reassignment can occur on eligible computers that have an external USB device or SD memory card attached during the installation of the May 2019 update. For this reason, these computers are currently blocked from receiving the May 2019 Update. This generates the error message that is mentioned in the "Symptoms" section if the upgrade is tried again on an affected computer.

Example: An upgrade to the May 2019 Update is tried on a computer that has the October 2018 update installed and also has a thumb drive inserted into a USB port. Before the upgrade, the device would have been mounted in the system as drive G based on the existing drive configuration. However, after the upgrade, the device is reassigned a different drive letter. For example, the drive is reassigned as drive H.

Note The drive reassignment is not limited to removable drives. Internal hard drives can also be affected.
The public release of Windows 10 May 2019 Update is expected to start towards the end of May.

Two years ago Microsoft revealed its intention to remove Paint from Windows 10, and move the app to the Windows Store, in favor of the Paint 3D tool. It seems the software giant has changed its opinion as the latest builds of Windows 10 May 2019 Update still have Paint, and no longer have the "Product alert" button that warns the app will soon be moving to the Windows Store.

South Korean tech giant Samsung revealed a 133 trillion won ($115 billion) plan to become the world leader in processors by 2030. About 55 percent of the figure is earmarked for research & development, while the remainder will be invested in production capacity. Samsung is already the biggest maker of memory chips and it seems it's now gunning to dethrone Intel. Overall, the announcement is pretty light on details.
Samsung Electronics, a world leader in advanced semiconductor technology, today announced that it will invest KRW 133 trillion by 2030 to strengthen its competitiveness in System LSI and Foundry businesses.

The investment plan is expected to help the company to reach its goal of becoming the world leader in not only memory semiconductors but also logic chips by 2030. The company also plans to create 15,000 jobs in R&D and production to bolster its technological prowess.

The investments through 2030 will be composed of KRW 73 trillion for domestic R&D and KRW 60 trillion for production infrastructure. Per this plan, investments in R&D and facilities for logic semiconductors are expected to amount to an average KRW 11 trillion per year until 2030.

Word is going around that NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1650 does not feature the Turing NVENC encoder. Instead, this Turing-based card has the less feature-rich multimedia engine of the Volta generation, and lower performance:
Turing's NVENC is known to have around 15 percent performance uplift over Volta's, which means the GTX 1650 will have worse game livestreaming performance than expected. The GTX 1650 has sufficient muscle for playing e-Sports titles such as PUBG at 1080p, and with an up-to-date accelerated encoder, would have pulled droves of more amateur streamers to the mainstream on Twitch and YouTube Gaming. Alas, the $220 GTX 1660 would be your ticket to that.

    NVIDIA announced the availability of gaming laptops with its GeForce GTX 1650 and GeForce GTX 1660 Ti video cards. Over 80 models are on the way, with prices starting at $799.
    2019 NVIDIA today introduced the GeForce® GTX® 1660 Ti and 1650 Turing-based GPUs for gaming laptops, which deliver a major jump in overall performance and power efficiency for today’s most popular games.

    Beginning today, the world’s top gaming laptop manufacturers are rolling out more than 80 models powered by the latest GeForce GPUs, starting at $799.

    “Gamers have an impressive selection of fast, power-efficient and thin laptops to choose from — all powered by our Turing family of GeForce RTX and GTX GPUs,” said Mark Aevermann, director of product management at NVIDIA. “Now is the perfect time to be in the market for a new GeForce gaming laptop, especially for the tens of millions of gamers with older laptops who’d like to experience incredibly fast frame rates in their favorite games.”

    Massive Upgrade Opportunity

    Laptop owners, who typically upgrade after about four years of use, can see enormous performance gains with the newest GeForce GPUs. GeForce GTX 1660 Ti laptop configurations, for example, use the latest technologies to deliver up to 4x the performance for gaming compared with the four-year-old GeForce GTX 960M.

    Additionally, gamers can play at 100 frames per second at 1080p in popular games such as Fortnite, PUBG and Apex Legends.

    “Consumers are spending huge amounts of time on laptop PC gaming, according to new research we recently completed, which is driving them to purchase powerful new systems that can improve the quality of their gaming experience,” said Bob O’Donnell, president and chief analyst at TECHnalysis Research. “Manufacturers are responding to this by evolving multiple aspects of their gaming laptops, from thinness of designs to massive performance improvements in compute and graphics horsepower, such as what the new GeForce offerings enable.”

    GeForce GTX 16-series gaming laptops take advantage of all of the shader innovations in the 12th generation NVIDIA Turing™ GPU architecture, including concurrent floating point and integer operations, unified cache architecture with 3x the L1 cache compared to the Pascal generation, and turbocharged performance using adaptive shading technology.

    The Turing architecture delivers 1.5x instructions per clock and 1.4x power efficiency of its predecessor, NVIDIA Pascal™, which previously set the standard for power-efficient GPUs. As a result, with a power envelope of as low as 60W, GTX 1660 Ti laptops deliver the best performance per watt of any laptop in their class.


    Partner Availability
    GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and 1650 models are available starting today from the world’s top OEMs, including Acer, ASUS, Dell and Alienware, Gigabyte, HP, Lenovo and MSI, and Samsung in the coming months.
