MediaTek shows high-end 7nm-soc Pentonic 2000 for 8k120 televisions – Computer – News

That’s depressing. Just make that damn thing 2 euros more expensive. For my part 200 euros or 2000. As long as it works well.

Totally agree. There is a clear difference between manufacturers and how they deal with user experience.
I’m also curious how this will work out in 5 years. If the speed of the interface has been like this from day one, what will it be like in 5 or 10 years, when the car has to be sold? I would leave a car in front of it (and I strongly recommend that everyone do that, explanation follows).

Besides the speed of the interface, there are other quirks that car manufacturers are venturing. For example touchscreen fetishism: there is a trend that buttons in the interior disappear and are hidden in the general control screen. A frequently heard complaint is that, for example, it is not convenient to set the temperature or the volume. It even goes so far that buttons on the steering wheel become touch sensitive, to the detriment of ease of use. Form over function, while form suffers little with a few buttons.

These complaints have been going on for years and for years little has been done about them. Manufacturers that deserve praise in my opinion are Kia and Hyundai. They take a good look at what customers find important and respond accordingly. And with success, what the Kia EV6 and Hyundai Ioniq 5 are really the only electric cars I would recommend. Due to the 800-volt system, they can charge relatively quickly (so they tackle the Achilles heel) and in terms of driving characteristics and operation, they don’t really make any mistakes.

The Ioniq 5 can even pull a neat caravan, another one of the drawbacks that EVs are often plagued with.

Another example is the THP engine, which was used by Citroën/Peugeot/BMW/Mini. This can cause the timing chain to stretch, which means that the valve timing cannot be sufficiently guaranteed and can contaminate it internally. Ultimately you end up with an engine that does not run smoothly or worse: internal engine damage or a chain that breaks and therefore practically writes off the engine. A very nice case of a faulty product where it is legally required that this is solved. But I fear that there are few cases where this is frankly admitted and repaired free of charge and structurally.

I feel the same way about it, but I’ve stopped saying it’s ridiculous. It doesn’t matter: we as customers are sheepish enough to buy it anyway. My advice is: look carefully at everything you buy, because that can save a lot of trouble, especially with cars.

And above all, be critical. Just don’t buy the crap where the screen works slow. That is the only way to convince manufacturers: no sales. We are the customer, customer is king. If you, as a manufacturer, are naive enough to save a few euros on a product of €30,000 or more, and thus saddle the customer with a slow interface: fine. But don’t expect us to be so naive as to fall for that.
