Following the official announcement by the company a few weeks ago, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super cards are now officially available throughout the world starting from today. If you are planning to get your hands on the card in Malaysia, one of the places that you can find them is through NVIDIA’s own official store at Lazada Malaysia.

Just like the RTX 2070 Super and RTX 2060 Super cards, quite a number of NVIDIA’s Add-In-Board (AIB) partners have released their RTX 2080 Super cards into the store. Here they are:

RM 3,288: GALAX GeForce RTX 2080 Super EX (1-Click OC)

RM 3,399: ZOTAC GeForce RTX 2080 Super AMP

RM 3,599: ZOTAC GeForce RTX 2080 Super AMP Extreme

RM 3,699: GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2080 Super Gaming OC

RM 3,750: ASUS Dual GeForce RTX 2080 Super OC

RM 3,790: MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Super Gaming X Trio

RM 3,939: GIGABYTE AORUS GeForce RTX 2080 Super

RM 3,999: ASUS ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080 Super Advanced Edition

As per our previous report, the RTX 2080 Super is taking over the role of RTX 2080 as the second most powerful card within the GeForce RTX 20 graphics card series. In terms of performance, the RTX 2080 Super is generally up to 10% faster than its predecessor.

Do note that all the cards above are eligible for a free copy of Wolfenstein: Youngblood and Control which are perfect for them since both games support ray tracing. For further information, just head on to NVIDIA GeForce’s official website.

Alongside its two new smartphones, HONOR also announced a wearable during its launch event, the HONOR Band 5. While it has a familiar silhouette, it does come with a pretty impressive new feature.

The new feature in question is a blood oxygen monitor. The company says that this is important for two reasons. For one, it helps as part of the sleep monitoring feature. Another reason is that it helps detect fatigue. If your blood oxygen levels drop to below 90%, then it’s an indication to take a break, for instance.

Other items on its spec sheet include a 0.95-inch AMOLED 240 x 120 display, and a 100mAh battery that HONOR claims will give the Band 5 a 14-day battery life. It also comes with activity tracking that covers 10 different sports, as well as a real-time heart monitor. There is also a variant with NFC that can be used to make mobile payments.

The HONOR Band 5 is priced at CNY189 (~RM113) and CNY219 (~RM131), for the standard and NFC versions, respectively. The former set to be available in China starting 24 July, while the altter will become available on 29 July. For now, HONOR has not said anything about their availability in Malaysia.

HONOR has officially unveiled the HONOR 9X and 9X Pro. The direct successors to last year’s HONOR 8X, the new smartphones are packed with new features and hardware.

To kick things off, both the HONOR 9X and 9X Pro are fitted with a new 6.59-inch Full HD+, notchless All-View display. Like the OnePlus 7 Pro and Xiaomi Mi 9T, the 16MP selfie camera for the phones now uses a motorised pop-up module.

Specs-wise, both the HONOR 9X and 9X Pro are powered by the 7nm Kirin 810 SoC. Further, the HONOR 9X will sport a dual-camera setup comprising a 48MP main sensor and 2MP sensor. The HONOR 9X Pro shares the same sensors, but it also has an additional 8MP wide-angle camera, making its module a triple-camera array.

The back of the HONOR 9X and 9X Pro is also a thing of beauty sporting a 3D gradient glass design, which refracts and shows off an “X-shaped” pattern when viewed at an angle.

The memory and storage configurations are also different, depending on the models. The HONOR 9X seems to have three variant: 4GB/64GB, 6GB/64GB, and 6GB/128GB. While the HONOR 9X Pro only comes with 8GB RAM, and an internal storage choice of either 128GB or 256GB. Software-wise, both phones have access to HONOR’s GPU Turbo 3.0, and will run on the latest Android 9.0 Pie with EMUI 9.1.1.

Oh, and the battery size in them are also identical at 4000mAh, and considering the stamina of the HONOR 8X, it’s likely that these two phones will be just as impressive.

The only thing missing from the list is the official pricing for both the HONOR 9X and 9X Pro. However, both devices will be making its rounds in China first, followed by a global launch at a later date. The HONOR 9X will be available in Black, Blue, and Red, while the Pro variant will have just two colour, Black and Purple.

Marvel Studios once again stole the show at San Diego Comic-Con when they unveiled their phase 4 slate for not just movies but Disney+ shows as well. Some of the projects include Black WidowThe Falcon and The Winter Soldier, The EternalsShang-Chi and Thor 4 AKA Thor: Love and Thunder. However, the slate does not include the likes of Captain Marvel 2, Black Panther 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 — these films are currently in development and will most likely be part of phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

All of this is very exciting news. But the inclusion of Thor 4 on the phase 4 slate without Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has caused many fans to wonder where exactly the Taika Waititi film fits in the timeline. After all, at the end of Avengers: Endgame, we see Thor pass the proverbial throne of Asgard to Valkyrie before jetting off with Rocket Raccoon and the Guardians of the Galaxy. Now, writer/director James Gunn who will be helming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has cleared the air by saying that Thor 4 will be taking place before the third chapter of Guardians of the Galaxy.

On James Gunn’s Instagram post celebrating Endgame‘s box office success, a fan asked if Thor: Love and Thunder is taking place before or after Guardians of the Galaxy 3. To which the acclaimed director responded with one word: “before.”

Naturally, we now have more questions. I mean did Thor suddenly say “haha! Gotcha. I’m not joining you fools before hopping off the GOTG spaceship?” Well, whatever the case may be, I trust that Kevin Feige and his band of creatives have already thought about how to make everything fit seamlessly.

And if you’re wondering why Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 isn’t part of the phase 4 lineup, it’s because James Gunn is currently working hard over at Warner Bros/DC on his Suicide Squad soft reboot. The director confirmed just as much on Twitter:

“Guardians Vol. 3 IS happening, but I am finishing The Suicide Squad first.”

Thor 4 will be releasing in theatres on 5 November 2021.
