80 cores at 3GHz, 310W of power and an incredible 44,000 Geekbench score. Ampere Altra Max Q8030 processor tested outside the server

The well-known overclocker Der8auer got a very unusual processor for the next test. This is the Ampere Altra Max Q8030, an 80-core server processor based on the Arm v8 architecture.

The monstrous CPU runs at 3 GHz, has 128 PCIe 4.0 lanes and an eight-channel DDR4-3200 memory controller. And it turned out that this is an incredibly productive processor.

At least in Geekbench, which was used by the author for testing. It should be said right away that under such a load, the CPU consumed up to 310 W of power, warming up to 70 degrees.

In the benchmark, the processor scored a very modest 882 points in single-threaded mode, but an incredible 44,425 points in multi-threaded mode! For comparison, the Core i9-12900K scores just over 17,000 points, while the 64-core Ryzen Threadripper 5995WX is already able to score 40,000 points, which was previously a record. Actually, it remains so, if we talk about consumer (albeit conditionally) processors, but in the absolute standings, the Ampere Altra Max Q8030 is 10% faster.

Intel hinted at the prices of older graphics cards Arc

Intel is still keeping the intrigue and does not name the exact prices for its Arc A770 and Arc A750 video cards. However, it seems that the chipmaker himself hinted at their cost.

As noted, participants in the Xe HPG Scavenger Hunt contest can choose the Core i7-12700K and Core i5-12600K processors as a prize – this is offered as an alternative to the Arc A770 and Arc A750, respectively. Thus, knowing the recommended prices for chips, you can roughly calculate the prices of video cards.

This suggests that the price of the top-end Arc A770 will not exceed $410, and the Arc A750 – $290. Of course, this is just an estimated cost.

Note that the letters received by the participants of the event say that the cards will debut soon, but it will not be specified whether this will happen in the summer. Perhaps they will appear in the fall.

In terms of specifications, the A770 will be based on the ACM-G10 GPU with 4096 cores clocked at up to 2.5GHz. She is promised 16 GB of GDDR6 video memory with an effective frequency of 15.5 GHz, as well as a 256-bit bus.

The Arc A750 version will get the same chip but with 3584 cores. Also, the card will have 8 GB of GDDR6 memory with a frequency of 15.5 GHz and a 256-bit bus.

Ethereum is growing and graphics card prices continue to fall

Nvidia’s flagship GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card has dropped to almost $1,000 in the US, but AMD’s top-end graphics cards are also dropping in price, with the Radeon RX 6900 XT hitting a low this week, dropping to $700. Not so long ago, the Radeon RX 6700 XT was sold for that kind of money.

Formally, the Radeon RX 6900 XT is not the top model in the AMD line, as there is the Radeon RX 6950 XT. But the difference between them is quite small. With its 16GB of GDDR6 memory, 256-bit bus, 5120 stream processors, the Radeon RX 6900 XT will be relevant for a long time to come.

Interestingly, the new price low of the Radeon RX 6900 XT was recorded against the backdrop of an increase in the cost of Ethereum. It can be assumed that by introducing new discounts, sellers are starting to clear out warehouses before the release of the Radeon RX 7000 line of video cards.

The Core i9-12900KF is a 16-core processor with 8 high performance cores (Golden Cove) and 8 energy efficient cores (Gracemont). Large cores are overclocked to 5.2 GHz. The third level cache is 30 MB, the TDP level is 125 watts. The Core i9-12900KF is fully consistent with the Core i9-12900K, with the only difference that it has the integrated graphics core disabled.
