Despite the fact that before the release of Intel Raptor Lake processors there are still at least a few months left, there are already a lot of tests and reports on the Web about the performance of the flagship Core i9-13900K model. And now the Chinese (it is in China that engineering samples of the latest CPUs appear earlier than other countries) have tested a simpler and cheaper model – the Core i5-13600K. And he impressed.
For starters, the settings. The Core i5-13600K will be a 10-core processor, with 6 large and 8 small cores. The maximum frequency of the large ones will be 5.1 GHz, which, coupled with an increased L2 cache to 20 MB and a 24 MB L3 cache, in itself promises a significant increase in performance. For comparison, the parameters of the current Core i5-12600K: 6 large cores with a maximum frequency of 4.9 GHz, 4 small cores, 9.5 MB L2 cache and 20 MB L3 cache.
Now – to the results. In CPU-Z, the Core i5-13600K engineering sample was 28% faster than the Ryzen 9 5950X in a single-threaded test. In multi-threaded, he, of course, lost, but lost only slightly. And here you should take into account the fact that all the cores of the Ryzen 9 5950X are the same and operate at the highest possible frequency, unlike the promising Core i5.
The Core i5-13600K ran at a lower frequency in Cinebench R23, but that didn’t stop it from outperforming the Ryzen 9 5900X in the multi-threaded test by about 10%. Once the frequency issue is fixed, the Core i5-13600K may be faster in the single-threaded test as well.
In general, the Core i5-13600K is impressive already now, at the stage of an engineering sample. At an adequate cost (and, most likely, it will be, judging by the Alder Lake CPU), it can become a hit.
Intel wants a “five-year plan” in a year? Next year the company will have three lines of desktop processors at once, as Meteor Lake-S will still be released
Intel seems to have decided to exceed the plan not only in terms of technical processes, but also in terms of CPU lines. It turns out that Meteor Lake-S desktop processors will still be released.
Michelle Johnston Holthaus, Intel executive vice president and general manager of the client computing group, spoke about this. The PC World journalist, apparently not expecting an affirmative answer to his question regarding the fate of Meteor Lake-S, even asked again, and again received an affirmative answer.
So, tabletop Meteor Lake will still be released, and will be released next year. But now it’s not very clear how Intel is going to launch three lines at once within one year. Let us remind you that Raptor Lake Refresh will be released in October, and Arrow Lake is also expected next year. And if previously it was believed that the latter would simply replace the former, now another line is being added to them.
Perhaps Meteor Lake and Arrow Lake will coexist in the same way as in the mobile segment: Intel said that the former will occupy the mid-price segment, and the latter will be available in the upper price segment. And if these lines are released on desktop at the end of 2024, then they will together replace Raptor Lake Refresh. However, such a division will still be unusual, and Intel itself promised to release ARROW Lake much earlier than at the end of next year.
The Huawei Kirin 9000s platform is truly unique. It has a 12-core processor, although it’s far from record-breaking performance.
The Kirin 9000s platform continues to bring surprises, although smartphones based on it have been on sale for some time.
After the latest Huawei flagships received HarmonyOS 126.96.36.199, Geekbench software began to define the characteristics of the new SoC differently. If earlier it was seen as an eight-core solution, now the number of processor cores is indicated as 12.
It’s worth remembering here that AnTuTu initially determined that the platform had exactly 12 cores, however, including two Cortex-A34.
Geekbench, well, indicates the types of cores, but talks about three clusters: four cores with a frequency of 1.53 GHz, two with a frequency of 2.62 GHz and six with a frequency of 2.15 GHz. This information is confirmed by screenshots from the mobile version of the benchmark.
We have not yet seen mobile SoCs with 12-core CPUs. At the same time, the performance of the Kirin 9000s, despite this configuration, is far from flagship by 2023 standards, that is, the cores themselves are not the most powerful.
A year after the start of sales in China, Xiaomi’s 30-inch gaming monitor has finally reached Europe. The price has been announced
Sales of the new Xiaomi gaming monitor began in Europe: in April 2022, this model entered the Chinese market under the name Redmi Curved Monitor 30, but in Europe the device is called Xiaomi Curved Gaming Monitor 30.
The resolution of the curved panel is 2560 x 1080 pixels, the radius of curvature is 1.8 m. Maximum brightness is 300 cd/sq.m., contrast is 3000: 1. The stated pixel response time is 4 ms, AMD FreeSync Premium, Picture- in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture. Video inputs include one DisplayPort, HDMI 2.1 and HDMI 1.4.
In the UK, the Xiaomi Curved Gaming Monitor 30 costs 240 pounds, in Spain – 240 euros.
