AMD today officially announced its new notebook APUs. There are 12 new products in total, they are divided into two lines. The flagship Ryzen 5000H includes models with a TDP of 35-45 W (Ryzen 9 5980HX and Ryzen 9 5900HX support overclocking, so the TDP is even higher than 45 W) on the Zen 3 architecture, but the Ryzen 5000U line includes models on both Zen 3 and on Zen 2, but the TDP value is the same for all models – 10-25 W.
Why it was necessary to make such a mix from APUs on different architectures within the same series, it became clear only now: models of the Lucienne family (Zen 2) are cheaper than Cezanne models (Zen 3) – they will be used in inexpensive laptops. In general, mobile Ryzen 5000s gained 19% in terms of IPC and received twice as much cache memory. All characteristics of the new products are presented in two tables below, but we will dwell on the flagships in more detail.
Ryzen 9 5980HX and Ryzen 9 5900HX each have 8 processing cores and support multithreading. The amount of cache memory L3 was 16 MB, L2 – 4 MB. The Ryzen 9 5900HX has a base frequency of 3.3 GHz, with a maximum of 4.6 GHz. The base and maximum frequencies of the Ryzen 9 5980HX are 3.4 and 4.8 GHz. The TDP for them is listed as 45+ watts, since only these two models support overclocking. It, of course, will largely be determined by the cooling subsystem of each particular laptop, but in general for high-performance mobile workstations or gaming laptops, this is an interesting opportunity. Note that Ryzen 5000H will compete with Intel Tiger Lake-H35 CPUs, but there are only three blue processors in the series, while AMD has six.
AMD Ryzen 5000H APU specifications are as follows:
|Ryzen 9 5980HX||Cezanne h||Zen 3||8/16||3.4-4.8||16||8/512||N / A||45+|
|Ryzen 9 5900HX||Cezanne h||Zen 3||8/16||3.3-4.6||16||8/512||N / A||45+|
|Ryzen 9 5900H||Cezanne h||Zen 3||8/16||3.3-4.65||16||8/512||N / A||35-45|
|Ryzen 9 5900HS||Cezanne h||Zen 3||8/16||3.1-4.5||16||8/512||N / A||35-45|
|Ryzen 7 5800H||Cezanne h||Zen 3||8/16||3.2-4.4||16||8/512||2.0||35-45|
|Ryzen 5 5600H||Cezanne h||Zen 3||6/12||3.1-4.1||8||N / A||N / A||35-45|
And this is how the characteristics of the Ryzen 5000U look like:
|Ryzen 7 5800U||Cezanne u||Zen 3||8/16||2.0-4.4||16||8/512||2.0||10-25|
|Ryzen 7 5700U||Lucienne U||Zen 2||8/16||1.8-4.3||8||8/512||1.9||10-25|
|Ryzen 5 5600U||Cezanne u||Zen 3||6/12||2.3-4.3||12||7/448||1.8||10-25|
|Ryzen 5 5500U||Lucienne U||Zen 2||6/12||2.1-4.0||8||7/448||1.8||10-25|
|Ryzen 3 5400U||Cezanne u||Zen 3||4/8||2.6-4.0||8||6/384||1.6||10-25|
|Ryzen 3 5300U||Lucienne U||Zen 2||4/8||2.6-3.85||4||6/384||1.5||10-25|
All of these APUs are manufactured using the 7nm process technology. Ready-made devices based on them will go on sale in the near future, but, according to rumors, at first Ryzen 5000 laptops will be in short supply.
Not as thick as new Nvidia graphics cards. Non-Reference XFX RX 7900 XT Merc 310 Image Revealed
XFX will offer non-reference 3D cards of the Radeon RX 7000 line. Images of the RX 7900 XT Merc 310 model have already appeared on the Web, but we can safely assume that there will also be a similar-looking RX 7900 XTX Merc 310.
The card is made in the usual XFX design. It is very long, but not the thickest by modern standards. It will probably take up less than three expansion slots.
You can also highlight three power connectors (8 + 8 + 8) and the absence of a USB-C port, which is available on new generation AMD reference adapters.
Recall that the RX 7900 will be launched on December 13th. On the same day, reviews of new AMD products will be published. If the new 3D cards prove to be very successful for their prices, Nvidia can reduce the price of the GeForce RTX 4080, because it is 20% more expensive than the top RX 7900 XTX.
Intel graphics cards are drastically faster in some older games. Intel has worked on support for DirectX 9
Intel Arc graphics cards, among other things, have rather mediocre performance in older games. But today the company has released a fresh driver that significantly changes the situation, although not in all games.
The company has worked on optimization for some specific games, adding native support for DirectX 9. In particular, it is important to note Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, in which the performance of Arc adapters increased by almost 80%. The company has also worked on the 1% percentile, increasing the rate by up to 2.3 times, which should make the gameplay smoother.
Not all old games have received an impressive performance boost, but Intel can still be commended for continuing to work on its accelerators.
The GeForce RTX 4080 12GB is back. First GeForce RTX 4070 Ti unveiled
Rumors that the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB video card, canceled right before the release, will return under the name GeForce RTX 4070 Ti have been fully confirmed. Colorful has completely declassified the RTX 4070 Ti BattleAx Deluxe 3D card, and its specs are exactly the same as those of the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB.
Although the cooler is different from the cooler that Nvidia equips its video cards with, the Colorful RTX 4070 Ti BattleAx Deluxe is the reference model in everything else. It is built on the AD104 GPU and has 12 GB of GDDR6X memory with a frequency of 21 GHz. The base frequency of the GPU is 2310 MHz.
There is only one connector for connecting additional power – a 16-pin one, to which GeForce RTX 4090 users have a lot of complaints. However, the consumption of the RTX 4070 Ti is significantly lower, so it is hardly worth worrying about the melting of the connectors in this case. Colorful doesn’t specify the number of CUDA cores, but it should be 7680, which is exactly what Nvidia claimed for the RTX 4080 12 GB.
According to preliminary data, sales of the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti will start on January 5, immediately after the formal official premiere on January 3.
