Have you been frustrated at the crazy prices being asked for GPUs these days? For many content creators and gamers, even mid-range graphics cards have become prohibitively expensive over the last few years.

If you’re planning a GPU upgrade in the near future, we have some excellent news: Intel’s new Arc 7 graphics cards seem to offer the perfect combination of high power and modest cost. The long-awaited Arc A770 and A750 GPUs offer 32 Xe and 28 Xe cores, respectively, with at least 8GB of memory. Intel claims that the Arc A750 will outperform an Nvidia RTX 3060 — and the best part is that the new card will retail for under $350.

If you’re less interested in building a PC from scratch, and would rather purchase a pre-made system, don’t worry — Intel’s Arc GPUs are already creeping into various readymade machines:

  • The Thermaltake LCGS Quartz features an Intel Arc A750 GPU and will help creatives make better content in less time. AV1 hardware encoding support and Intel’s XMX AI capabilities make 3D animation and editing effortless.
  • The iBUYPOWER SlateHako2120i desktop would make a fantastic choice for gamers who like to live stream their sessions. Intel’s Deep Link technology features built-in background removal, auto camera framing, and plenty of options that make it simple to stream like a pro.

As you can see, Intel’s new cards should add plenty of variety to the current PC landscape, especially at such competitive prices. Whether you’re looking for a killer new gaming rig, a video editing powerhouse, or a content creation beast, these new GPUs are definitely worth checking out.

Truecaller, a well-known app for identifying and blocking spam calls, is enhancing its services by allowing users to create AI versions of their voices. The new feature, available to those with access to Truecaller’s AI Assistant, stems from a partnership with Microsoft and its Azure AI Speech tool, allowing the generation of realistic AI voices that accurately mimic users’ speech patterns and tone.

“This groundbreaking capability not only adds a touch of familiarity and comfort for the users but also showcases the power of AI in transforming the way we interact with our digital assistants,” explained Truecaller product director and general manager Raphael Mimoun in a recent blog post.

When the feature was introduced in 2022, users could only choose from a collection of preset voices. The ability to record one’s own voice represents a significant step towards the complete personalization of the service.
