NEW YORK, September 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Continuing its mission to create a new financial system that works for everyone, DailyPay announces a new no-fee transfer option (1-3 business days). Millions of American workers nationwide will now have a no-cost transfer option so they can pay bills, spend, save, or invest at their own pace. This announcement comes after the recent introduction of DailyPay Friday by DailyPay™, a general purpose reloadable app and card that allows DailyPay users access to instant EWA for free if they upgrade their direct deposit to Friday.

In partnership with major U.S. employers, DailyPay works with businesses to bring financial tools to their workforce by providing employees, many of whom are often unbanked or underbanked, with access to Pay Balance, payment at demand and a much-needed financial lifeline and cash flow. the solution. This service has provided much-needed financial support to workers during the pandemic and may be particularly relevant in providing financial flexibility to so many struggling with high inflation. In fact, 75% of hourly workers have struggled to pay their expenses this year, according to a recent Harris Poll commissioned by DailyPay and Funding Our Future. DailyPay will be rolling out its new one to three business day fee-free transfer option to its user base over the coming weeks.

“It’s all about choice and access,” said Matthew Koko, Vice President, Public Policy, DailyPay. “Our users now have the option of paying a small ATM-like fee for an immediate transfer or a no-fee option for a transfer within one to three business days.

]]> AMD unveils chips for the next wave of cheap, lightweight laptops Tue, 20 Sep 2022 13:00:20 +0000

AMD calls them “everyday mobile” laptops, but another way to look at them is their budget and budget – lightweight, low-power laptops that are always in high demand. In the cycle of processor releases, the chips powering these systems are usually the first of all generations to debut, bearing next-gen names on last-gen technologies.

In this case, the Ryzen 5 7250U, Ryzen 3 7320U, and Athlon Gold 7220U bring notable upgrades to laptop buyers around under $800 (about £700, AU$1,200), including integrated graphics. Current-gen RDNA 2 (Radeon 610M) for more responsive screen rendering and passable gaming at 720p, up to 12 hours of battery life, and better support for Windows 11 features to improve web conferencing, security, and power management.

New laptops with 7020U-series chips should start shipping by the end of the year, and AMD is highlighting the Lenovo Ideapad 1, HP 17, and Acer Aspire 3 as models you can expect to integrate them at that time.

7020U processors use AMD’s recently revised naming convention, which provides better transparency on processor class; the name includes the advertised year, market segment, architecture, class within market segment, and target power consumption (which usually dictates size and weight).

AMD's chart outlining its processor naming convention for 2023 to 2025.


Although not based on state-of-the-art architectures, the new processors are produced using a 6nm process and support LPDDR5 memory. The smaller process automatically confers performance improvements and the LPDDR5 memory is faster than previous generations. They also add support for BGA NVMe SSD, a cheaper, more compact, and more power-efficient form of solid-state storage than traditional slotted SSD (and still faster than non-SSD media), making should increase capabilities, especially in Chromebook, possible. This means potentially much faster app launch.
