The range of AMD 3D accelerators for professional use has been replenished with the inexpensive Radeon PRO W6400 model. It is priced at just $230. For comparison, standing one step above the Radeon PRO W6600 is priced at $650.
The Radeon PRO W6400 is built around the simplest Navi GPU, Navi 24, which is also used in the recently introduced Radeon RX 6500 XT consumer graphics card. The GPU is manufactured using TSMC’s 6nm FinFET process. It has 12 execution units and 768 stream processors, single precision performance is 3.5 TFLOPS.
The Radeon PRO W6400 received 4 GB of 16 GHz GDDR6 memory, 16 MB of fast Infinity Cache and a 64-bit memory bus. The novelty is endowed with two DisplayPort 1.4 connectors, supports PCIe 4.0 interface (four lines) and is characterized by a TDP of 50 watts. The Radeon PRO W6400 occupies only one slot in a PC case.
Even before the release of the Radeon PRO W6400, it was clear that this video card would compete with Nvidia’s budget 3D card for professional use T600. In the slides of the official presentation of AMD’s new product, there is a comparison with the Nvidia T600, and we can say that these models are comparable in performance.
A new era in the Windows mobile game console market. GPD has already received the Ryzen 7 6800U APU for the Win Max 2 console
With the release of Ryzen 6000 mobile processors, equipped with very powerful iGPUs, a new era of Windows handheld game consoles is dawning.
The Aya Neo 2 console with Ryzen 7 6800U was unveiled yesterday, and now GPD has boasted that it has already acquired a batch of the same APUs, so GPD Win Max 2 test models based on this platform should be ready by June. Judging by the entry, the company did not expect that it would be able to get the processors so quickly.
GPD Win Max 2 was introduced back in March, but with a Core i7-1280P processor, but its graphics subsystem is no match for the iGPU in the Ryzen 7 6800U.
As a result, before the end of the year, at least two more portable set-top boxes with Windows that can handle modern games should appear on the market. True, apparently, in both cases we are talking about a Full HD screen, which creates an additional load on the GPU. For the same Steam Deck, the resolution is HD.
Nvidia unexpectedly updated the drivers for the “abandoned” GeForce GTX 600 and GTX 700 (Kepler). Users are advised to install the update
Nvidia has stopped updating Game Ready drivers for the GeForce GTX 600 and GTX 700 (Kepler family) since version 470, but now the company has made an exception and released a security update for them as part of the latest driver 473.47.
Nvidia points out that a number of nasty vulnerabilities have been found in previous versions of drivers for “abandoned” video cards. In the CVE (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures) database of well-known information security vulnerabilities, they are rated 7 on a 10-point scale. Therefore, users of older graphics cards are advised to upgrade to the latest Game Ready driver. It is noted that the vulnerabilities have been fixed both in drivers for old video cards (Kepler in this case) and in drivers for new ones. For the latter, the WHQL driver number 517.77 is provided.
Samsung waited six months to bring the world’s first 240Hz 4K monitor to market. Odyssey Neo G8 coming soon
Back at the beginning of the year, Samsung introduced the Odyssey Neo G8, the world’s first 4K UHD 240Hz gaming monitor.
Despite the fact that almost six months have passed, the monitor has not yet entered the market, but it should soon.
According to Samsung’s Twitter post, the monitor will be available soon. True, there is no hint of a launch date, and the price remains a mystery at all. However, the device will definitely not be cheap.
Recall that the Odyssey Neo G8 is equipped with a 32-inch Quantum Mini LED curved panel with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels. The radius of curvature is 1000 mm. The monitor supports AMD FreeSync Premium Pro, HDR10+ and Nvidia G-Sync. The maximum brightness is declared equal to 2000 cd / m2.
