Buy the latest Intel processor and disable some of the cores to be able to play games. Intel has found a temporary solution to the problem with Denuvo

As you know, Intel Alder Lake processors, which went on sale the day before yesterday, have problems with a number of games due to DRM protection. This is mainly Denuvo protection.

And now the details have appeared on this score. First, the game lists have been published. Moreover, it is the lists, because there are two of them: for Windows 10 and for Windows 11. Let’s start with them.

So, 22 games don’t work on both operating systems right now. Some of the games that can be seen in the left column in the first table should start working with the release of the patch for Windows 11, which is expected in the middle of the month.

But in relation to other games, the situation is strange. Intel says it is in talks with game developers to help resolve the issue. At the same time, Denuvo developers report that they sent the necessary patches for problematic games, and all this was ready even before the new CPUs were launched.

In any case, the situation is somewhat inconvenient for Intel. On the one hand, we are talking about only a few dozen games, and on the other, they include relatively fresh and very popular projects, like Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla and older parts of the series, Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order, several parts of FIFA, and so on. … And it is still completely unclear when the situation will improve.

Recall that the problem is explained by the heterogeneity of the new CPUs. The defense in the game incorrectly recognizes small processor cores, perceiving them as a separate system. Why this happens only in a number of games is unclear. But Intel has found a temporary solution: you just need to disable these smallest cores in the BIOS. However, for the latest CPUs, the heterogeneity of which is their main feature, this approach looks strange.

Rumor Nvidia Stops Production of GeForce RTX 3080 GPUs After

A steep rise in the value of major cryptocurrencies triggered a cascade of events that resulted in the collapse of prices for new video cards. Many models have fallen in price, including top ones like the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti: with a recommended price of $1,200 (in the US), it is offered by the largest American retailers, Newegg and Amazon, for less than $1,000.

Rumor: Nvidia Stops Production of GeForce RTX 3080 GPUs After GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Drops in Price

A small price gap between the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and the GeForce RTX 3080 with 12GB of memory has led Nvidia to suspend shipments of GPUs to partners for the latter. So wrote one of the Twitter users familiar with the situation. It is impossible to confirm or refute these words, but in general such a development of events can be considered quite probable.

Up to 8 XE cores and 6 GB of memory

The database of the SiSoftware Sandra test package has fresh data on the upcoming Arc A40 Pro and Arc A50 Pro graphics cards. These are graphics accelerators for workstations that are designed for engineering tasks.

Up to 8 XE cores and 6 GB of memory

The A50 Pro has a full ACM-G11 GPU with 8 Xe cores (128 execution units/1024 FP32 cores), while the A40 Pro is likely to get a stripped-down version of the chip. The clock frequency is 2.45 GHz.

Both cards have 6 GB GDDR6 memory, indicating a 96-bit memory bus. In this regard, both models are similar to the Arc A380 mobile card, which has almost the same configuration.

Thus, the company continues to prepare its entry-level products. When high-performance gaming and professional solutions based on the ACM-G10 GPU will appear, it is not reported. It is also not yet clear whether the Arc A40 Pro and Arc A50 Pro cards will be available in retail or whether they will appear only as part of workstations.

Earlier, Intel introduced its first gaming graphics card for $150.
