The Witcher is on track to be Netflix’s biggest TV series of all-time

Several million people have tossed a coin to their Witcher, according to Netflix’s fourth quarter earnings report that just released on Tuesday (January 21). 

According to a letter the streaming service sent to shareholders, some 76 million subscribers watched the first season of the show, making it one of the company’s most popular first seasons ever and, potentially, the service’s biggest show. The numbers are pretty astounding and put the show above some of the decade’s biggest series like Game of Thrones that had over 19 million people watch its final episode. 

Canon will release four full-frame cameras in 2020, new rumors suggest

When we said it’s going to be a rather busy year for Canon, we didn’t quite expect it to be this busy. According to a new report from Canon Rumors, a reliable camera leaks and news publication, the Japanese manufacturer is set to deliver a grand total of four new full-frame shooters this year.

That number can, of course, change as Canon Rumors arrived at this figure by piecing together information from “a few different sources […] mixed with a little bit of common-sense”.

4G isn’t dead yet: this chip will power non-5G phones in 2020

While 2020 is the year we finally get more 5G phones, we’re far from seeing the end of 4G handsets. Qualcomm introduced a trio of new chipsets that will likely ship in this year’s higher-end and mid range phones, proving there’s still plenty of market space for smartphones that don’t hook up to next-gen networks.

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 720G, 662, and 460 are aimed at phones in India, though the chipmaker notes they’ll likely come in phones that arrive in the US, too, according to PocketNow

Intel Tiger Lake release date, specs and news: all the details on Intel’s next 10nm chips

Intel has done a great job of keeping us waiting on big advancements to its processor architecture, but Tiger Lake could start to change that. The first generation of 10nm Core processors was effectively a no-show, and the second generation of 10nm with Intel Ice Lake processors only recently hit Ultrabooks, but stands out as more of an efficient alternative to the high performance Comet Lake processors that still come on Intel’s undying 14nm architecture.

But at CES 2020, Intel gave plenty of attention to its upcoming Tiger Lake processors, so it’s time to start getting ready for the next generation of mobile processors. Especially because Intel will have its competition cut out for it with AMD Ryzen 4000 mobile processors, which verge on desktop performance
