An enthusiast tested an x86 processor in games that was not released by Intel or AMD

Enthusiast Albert Thomas, also known as Bizude, was able to test a rather rare processor manufactured by Centaur – the Centaur CHA model. This is a solution with eight CNS cores on x86 architecture without multithreading. The frequency is from 2.2 to 2.5 GHz.

The chip is made on a 16-nanometer process technology, has 16 MB of L3 cache, supports AVX-512 instructions and a four-channel DDR4 memory mode. It even has a built-in NCore AI co-processor. The company planned the CHA processor for the server market.

In terms of performance, the enthusiast found that the processor scores 552 and 4141 points in the Cinebench R23 benchmark. That is, in single-threaded mode the processor is approximately comparable to a dual-core Pentium G3220T (580 points), in multi-threaded mode it is at the level of a quad-core Xeon E3-1231 (4409 points).

For gaming tests, we used a system with this processor, 16 GB of DDR4-3200 memory (2×8 GB) and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti graphics card. As it turned out, in Cyberpunk 2077 with the preset DLSS mode, the system produced from 45 to 65 frames per second at a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels at the Ultra quality level.

In Doom (2016), a CHA-powered system delivered frame rates in excess of 60fps at 1440p. Quality settings were not specified. Finally, in Crysis, the computer provided from 35 to 101 frames per second, although the author did not disclose quality settings and resolution.

Centaur is a former subsidiary of VIA, which was involved in x86 processor projects. In 2021, Intel acquired a team of developers and engineers involved in these processors.

The power consumption of the Radeon RX 7000 series graphics cards will not be as huge as that of the GeForce RTX 40

The power consumption of the Radeon RX 7000 series graphics

Rumors are actively attributing huge power consumption up to 600 W and even higher to GeForce RTX 40 video cards. Radeon RX 7000 cards will also consume more than the current generation.

The power consumption of the Radeon RX 7000 series graphics cards will not be as huge as that of the GeForce RTX 40

AMD Senior Vice President Sam Naffziger revealed some details about the RDNA 3 architecture and products based on it. He also touched upon the topic of energy consumption.

The demand for gaming and computing performance is increasing, while at the same time the development of technical processes is slowing down quite sharply. Thus, the power level will only increase. We now have a multi-year roadmap with very significant energy efficiency improvements to offset this curve, but the trend is there.

Performance is critical, but even if our designs are more energy efficient, that doesn’t mean we won’t raise power levels if competitors are doing the same. They’ll just have to raise them much higher than us.

Thus, the Radeon RX 7000 line, despite the previously stated 50 percent advantage (over the RX 6000) in power efficiency, will stand out for its high power consumption simply because of the huge performance boost. At the same time, AMD is confident that Nvidia will have to increase power consumption even higher.

For now, the RX 6000 line is more power efficient than the GeForce RTX 30, although the difference isn’t huge. Previously, there were rumors that the top-end RX 7900 XT will consume 450 watts versus 600 watts in the case of the RTX 4090, but so far these are just rumors.

Who will release the weakest modern video card GeForce GTX

The GeForce GTX 1630 graphics card may hit the market on June 28th. This was announced by the manufacturer of 3D-maps Colorful.

However, the source says that the date may change, and this is quite likely, given that Nvidia has already postponed the launch of the adapter twice.

The GTX 1630 will be the weakest video card from the current Nvidia line if we are talking about new products. Recall that it is based on the TU117 GPU with 512 CUDA cores, has 4 GB of memory and a 64-bit bus.

The performance of such an adapter will be very modest. Previously, there was evidence that the new product will be slower than the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. This means that it will probably be weaker than the latest Intel Arc A380, which is 5-15% behind the GTX 1650.

So far, there are no special details about the new product. It is only known that the console will receive an 8-core and 16-thread Ryzen 7 6800U (Zen 3+) with a frequency range from 2.7 to 4.7 GHz. Integrated graphics – Radeon 680M architecture RDNA 2. The device will also receive a 7-inch display. Also, judging by the published image, AyaNeo Flip will receive analog sticks and rear triggers.

Note that the company has already announced the release of AyaNeo 2, AyaNeo 2 Geek, AyaNeo Air and AyaNeo Slide. The latest version, by the way, is made in the slider form factor. There, a full-fledged keyboard is hidden under the screen.
