After the Core i7-11700K went on sale a month ahead of schedule, many reviews of this CPU appeared on the Web. And the majority were not at all happy with the results.
For example, AnandTech benchmarks indicated, on average, a minimal performance gain over its predecessor. However, our colleagues now have a fresh BIOS for their motherboard that could improve the situation.
As you can see, it could have, but did not improve. Formally, with the new firmware Core i7-11700K looks better, but relative to previous results, the increase is on average less than 2%. At the same time, in some applications there is a drop by up to 4.3%, and in some there is still a tangible increase of almost 10%. As a result, the new CPU outperforms the old one, on average, not by 13.5%, but by 15.9%, while the Ryzen 5 5800X is faster than the same reported Core i7-10700K by 22.3%. In games, it makes no sense to talk about any difference at all.
As a result, while the Core i7-11700K does not seem to be a worthy competitor to the Ryzen 7 5800X, especially considering the much higher power consumption. But still, the official launch of Rocket Lake is still ahead, so, perhaps, some more BIOS updates will be released, and the new items will become even slightly better.
There are data on the performance of the mobile processor Intel Core i9-12900HK
A screenshot of a closed laptop test on a 12th generation Intel Core processor has appeared on the network. This is the Core i9-12900HK processor, which will presumably lead the Alder Lake-P lineup. Its configuration includes 14 cores, which are capable of executing up to 20 threads simultaneously. The base frequency of the Core i9-12900H processor is 2.9 GHz.
The processor has the highest performance of any known mobile processor released this year, including Intel Tiger Lake-H45, AMD Zen3 Mobile, and even the Apple M1 Max. Intel’s Alder Lake-P mobile processor series is expected to be unveiled alongside Arc Alchemist graphics cards, possibly at CES 2022.
Intel Core i5-12600K is much faster than the Core i9-11900K in the CPU-Z test and 46.7% faster than the Ryzen 5 5600X
New data on the Intel Core i5-12600K processor of the Alder Lake family has appeared on the web. The CPU was tested in the CPU-Z benchmark in two states: standard and overclocked. And even at nominal frequencies, this processor turned out to be faster than the top model of the Rocket Lake-S line – Core i9-11900K.
The unclocked Core i5-12600K scores 746 points in a single-threaded test and 7058 points in a multi-threaded one. The overclocked performance is, of course, even higher – about 790 and 7200 points, respectively. It turns out that even in the base, the Core i5-12600K is faster than the current flagship Core i9-11900K – it has 682 and 6563 points, respectively.
Also, the Core i5-12600K is much faster than the Ryzen 5 5600X – by 19.5% in a single-threaded test and by 46.7% in a multi-threaded one. However, this raises the question – why is the 10-core Intel CPU compared to the 6-core AMD CPU? Nevertheless, such a comparison is quite acceptable, because, according to preliminary data, the cost of the Core i5-12600K will be at the level of the Ryzen 5 5600X. And this is where AMD and its most popular Ryzen 5000 processor line can be hit hard.
The most powerful Nvidia graphics card for mining turned out to be significantly more expensive than the GeForce RTX 3090. Nvidia CMP 170HX with a performance of 164 MH / s went on sale
We have already written today about the most efficient Nvidia video card for mining, and now we are talking about the most powerful Nvidia video card for mining cryptocurrencies – CMP 170HX. Rumors about this model have been around for a long time, the characteristics are known, but now it is on sale and, finally, the price has become known.
The Nvidia CMP 170HX has appeared in the Vipera online store catalog and is being offered for an impressive $ 4,300. And we are not talking about single sales – there are about 230 video cards in stock.
Despite the high cost, the CMP 170HX definitely makes sense. Firstly, the video card provides a large hash rate – 164 MH / s. Even the GeForce RTX 3090 is not capable of this. This is due to the fact that the CMP 170HX has 8 GB of HBM2e memory at 1458 MHz with a 4096-bit bus. The memory bandwidth is 1.493 TB / s. Secondly, power consumption is lower than that of the same GeForce RTX 3090 – TDP is 250 W (additional power is supplied through one eight-pin connector). So the CMP 170HX is more efficient at mining than the RTX 3090, but it also costs about $ 1,000 more.
The CMP 170HX does not have video outputs and is not intended for gaming, but miners are not interested in the game. But the fact that the video card is accompanied by a 1 year warranty is interesting. It was previously stated that Nvidia CMP 3D cards have a limited warranty of only three months. But here either an exception was made for the CMP 170HX, or Nvidia revised its warranty policy, or the seller assumes an additional 9 months of warranty. In any case, a year of warranty for a purely mining video card, which will definitely overclock and work at the same time in 24/7 mode, is strong.
