110 Km/h on an electric scooter on the highway
It was on Reddit that the video of a young woman driving at more than 110 Kh / h on the highway was shared. It was the driver of a car driving behind her who recorded the video, thus proving the excessive speed at which the scooter was traveling.

2/5 for the Intel Arc 380 graphics card
In addition to decent performance at 1080p and an attractive price, the Intel Arc 380 is far from up to par and will have a hard time winning against the RX 6400 for example. Intel offers here a graphics card that does not provide any innovative functionality, its consumption is high and it makes a very unpleasant high-pitched noise. Intel fails to convince us with this Arc 380.

Realme GT Neo 3T: better and less good than its predecessor
You are looking for a gaming smartphone at a low price, Realme once again offers an interesting product with the GT Neo 3T. We like its power, the colorimetry of the screen improved compared to the GT Neo 2, its excellent economy or the stability of the platform and the good control of the temperature. However, we regret that the photo quality has been revised downwards compared to the GT Neo 2 and we note that the charge is slower between 80% and 100%.

Pleasantly surprised by the Nissan Ariya
The Ariya is Nissan’s first electric crossover and this vehicle has won us over overall. In addition to the unsuitable ergonomics of the driving position and a driving assistance system that is a little too loud, Nissan is offering a quality vehicle with a unique design. We appreciate its controlled consumption and the fact that the Ariya can charge in 22 kW on AC chargers and up to 130 kW in DC. Note that the presence of a video mode in the central mirror seemed unnecessary to us and that the classic mirror mode remains our favorite.
