AMD will respond to unusual Intel Alder Lake processors with even more unusual Ryzen with full and “defective” cores
All-new AMD Ryzen desktop processors of the Raphael generation, as we now know, will be released sometime in the second half of this year. Perhaps we now have the best idea at the moment of what such CPUs will be.
The block diagram below describes one Raphael chiplet. And the description is very unusual. You can see 16 cores with Zen 4 architecture, that is, AMD with the transition to the 5 nm process technology will double the number of cores in the chiplet. Either this means that the top-end Ryzen models of the new generation will have more than 16 cores (up to 32), or all regular CPUs will have only one chiplet.
Be that as it may, something else is interesting now. You can see that not all 16 processor cores are created equal. However, they do not differ in architecture. It’s just that eight cores work in normal full-fledged mode, while the other eight are limited to a TDP of 30 watts. Not 30 W for each of eight such cores, but a total of 30 W for eight cores. It is reported that energy efficient cores will not always work, but will be connected as needed when the load on the main cores reaches 100%.
Another feature is the 3D V-Cache chip or layer. But the block diagram indicates that in this form the processor will implement the entire L3 cache. Thus, if nothing changes with respect to the current implementation, any new generation Ryzen with one chiplet will have up to 64 MB of L3 cache, and with two chiplets, the volume will increase to 128 MB. Given the division of cores into full-fledged and limited ones, it is quite possible that top-end CPUs will indeed be 32-core.
We will remind, before the release of completely new Ryzen with Zen 4, we are still waiting for the updated Ryzen 5000X3D, which will be released in the spring.
GeForce RTX 4060 will receive one and a half times less memory than RTX 3060. Gigabyte has revealed data for RTX 4070 and RTX 4060
Gigabyte has confirmed the memory capacity of the yet unreleased GeForce RTX 4070 and RTX 4060 video cards. The corresponding adapters have been added to the list of supported ones in the Gigabyte Control Center software.
In particular, it lists RTX 4070 Aero OC 12GB and RTX 4060 Gaming OC 8GB. That is, the older novelty will receive 12 GB of memory, and the younger one will be limited to 8 GB. In the second case, this is quite interesting, since the original RTX 3060 is equipped with 12 GB.
All early data said the same thing. If they are otherwise correct, the RTX 4070 will have 5888 CUDA cores and a 192-bit memory bus, while the RTX 4060 will offer 3072 CUDA cores and a 128-bit memory bus.
If an Intel processor with a TDP of 350 W can consume almost 2 kW, then how much will a Granite Rapids CPU with a TDP of up to 500 W consume? The first details about this line have appeared
Details about the Intel processors that will replace the recently released Sapphire Rapids have appeared on the Web. The new generation will be called Granite Rapids and will indeed be completely new.
These CPUs will switch to the Intel 4 process technology, as well as the new Redwood Cove architecture. As in the case of Sapphire Rapids, only large cores will be included in the configuration of new products. But the most impressive is TDP up to 500W!
Recall that Sapphire Rapids in the face of the 56-core Xeon W9-3495X at a TDP of 350 W can consume up to 600 W of power without overclocking, and with extreme overclocking, consumption can reach almost 2 kW! If the new Granite Rapids have a TDP of 500W, what will be their actual power consumption?
As for the rest, we know about a 12-channel DDR5 memory controller and an LGA 7529 socket. Sierra Forest-AP processors will have the same performance, which will include only small cores.
The insider YuuKi_AnS, who shared the data, was the first to publish a photo of the Sapphire Rapids processor without a cover two years ago, and recently he was the first to reveal the characteristics of the Xeon CPU Max line.
Attacker tried to smuggle 84 SSDs across the Chinese border by hiding them inside an electric scooter
Chinese customs continues to periodically encounter unusual ways of transporting computer components. For example, on March 3, at the Guangdong-Macau checkpoint, an unnamed person tried to smuggle 84 SSDs across the border.
The man hid these same SSDs inside an electric scooter. 84 M.2 drives. were packed and hidden in the steering rack. This is a very convenient place, but the problem is that this method will not help to hide contraband from X-ray inspection. Actually, this is how the man was caught.
The official website of the customs specifies that it was about Kingston drives, but their volume is not specified. It is also worth clarifying that the attacker tried to import the SSD into China.
