16 PCIe 5 lane, simultaneous support for DDR4 and DDR5 memory. Details on Intel’s top Z690 chipset for Alder Lake processors

Published

Details about the top chipset for Intel Alder Lake processors – Intel Z690 – have appeared on the Web. There is a lot of new here. First, the chipset simultaneously supports both DDR5-4800 MHz and DDR4-3200 MHz memory. So, in some cases, the transition to a new platform will be carried out without the need to purchase expensive DDR5 memory. Each of the channels is designed for two RAM modules.

This is how an engineering sample of an Alder Lake processor looks like, designed to be installed in a new LGA1700 socket.

The second news concerns support for the PCIe 5 interface – it is implemented through the controller of the Alder Lake processor itself. A total of 16 lines are provided if they fall on one device, or 8 lines if there are two devices. The chipset separately provides up to 12 PCIe 4 lanes and up to 16 CPIe 3 lanes. And this is a big step up from the Rocket Lake processors. This configuration of the chipset means that the user can install up to four fast SSDs with PCIe 4 interface (12 lines of the chipset are supplemented by four lines of the processor controller) without the need to use the PCIe 5 bus, which can be completely given to the video card.

The Z690 also received an updated DMI interface (DMI 4.0 instead of DMI 3.0, it accounts for 8 PCI lanes), Wi-Fi 6E / 7 support is announced. Recall that the official premiere of the Z670 and CPU Alder Lake is expected on October 27.

Will it be better than the GeForce RTX 3050? Intel unveils Arc A750 graphics card for $290

Will it be better than the GeForce RTX 3050 Intel

For some reason, Intel waited a couple of days and introduced another video card.

Will it be better than the GeForce RTX 3050?  Intel unveils Arc A750 graphics card for $290

The Arc A750 will go on sale on October 12, just like the Arc A770. Technically, this is a pre-flagship solution. Instead of 32 Xe cores, the new products have 28 of them, that is, 3584 FP32 blocks. The adapter also has 8 GB of GDDR6 memory with a frequency of 16 GHz, a 256-bit bus and a TDP of 225 watts. That is, the novelty as a whole is very similar to the A770.

And the price is close. If for the younger Arc A770 they ask for $ 330, then the A750 is priced at $ 290. Thus, the card is 12% cheaper with a 12% lower number of computing units.

Intel also clarified the Arc A770. Contrary to previous reports, the 8GB version will cost $330, while the 16GB version will cost $350. More precisely, for this money, a Limited Edition reference card will be sold, which will only be available with 16 GB.

Intel itself says that the Arc A750 is 53% superior to the GeForce RTX 3060 in terms of price and performance, but at one time Intel said something similar about the Arc A380, but in the end it turned out that there are nuances. In addition, here the company mentions that they are charging an RTX 3060 with a price of $418, which is allegedly the average price of this card on the NewEgg network on September 22. However, there is an RTX 3060 on the same network for $370-$400, so the Intel comparison should be treated with caution.

As for direct price competitors for the A750, according to the same NewEgg network, these are the GeForce RTX 3050 and Radeon RX 6600.

Ryzen 7000 can be made much colder but its risky

The Ryzen 7000 processors proved to be very productive, but also very hot. Even with liquid cooling systems, temperatures cannot be called low. But there is a way out, even if it is not suitable for everyone.

Ryzen 7000 can be made much colder, but it's risky.  Processor needs to be scalped

The well-known overclocker Der8auer decided to check how much the situation would improve if the cover was removed from the Ryzen 9 7900X. It turned out that this is a very effective way.

When using liquid CO and overclocking to 5.5 GHz on all cores, the temperature was only 70 degrees versus 90 degrees for a conventional CPU with less overclocking. Unfortunately, there are no results without overclocking, but the temperatures will obviously be even lower, that is, already quite within the usual values ​​for most modern processors.

Der8auer used a prototype tool to remove the cover, but a production model should be available later. Of course, this solution is not suitable for everyone, because, firstly, it is risky, and secondly, it deprives the owner of the processor warranty. However, this is still an effective option and it must be borne in mind.

Ryzen Threadripper 7000 processors have been spotted online for the first time. An unknown 64-core model has found its way into the [email protected] database, and so far we only know about the number of cores and architecture of Zen 4.

If the 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X turned out to be incredibly powerful, then how will the 64-core Threadripper be?  First Ryzen Threadripper 7000 spotted online

The software itself indicates 128 in the “number of processors” column, but in fact it is about the number of threads.

If the 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X turned out to be incredibly powerful, then how will the 64-core Threadripper be?  First Ryzen Threadripper 7000 spotted online

Ryzen Threadripper has always been as close as possible to Epyc server CPUs and previously always matched them in terms of the maximum number of cores. However, we know that 96-core Epyc Genoa CPUs are waiting for us this year, but it’s not a fact that the older Ryzen Threadripper 7000 will also receive 96 cores.

That being said, even 64-core Zen 4 should offer phenomenal performance for the class, given what the 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X is capable of.
