On February 1st, Samsung Unpacked will be a big event in the US, during which the company will present the latest innovations – Galaxy S23 phones and laptops. Everything is already known about phones (there is even data on prices), and now details about mobile computers have arrived.
The new flagship of the Samsung notebook line will be the Galaxy Book 3 Ultra, and its parameters are at the level of top solutions from Asus, Lenovo, MSI and other companies, but at the same time, the large 16-inch Samsung notebook will be very compact.
Galaxy Book 3 Ultra will receive a top-end Intel Core i9-13900H processor, 32 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and a 1 TB SSD. This model will also have discrete graphics – in the form of a GeForce RTX 4070 with 8 GB of its own memory. The device will receive a 16-inch AMOLED panel with a resolution of 2880 x 1080 pixels.
The Galaxy Book 3 Ultra will also receive a 76 Wh battery, a 136 W power adapter, Windows 11 preinstalled, and four AKG speakers with Dolby Atmos support. The thickness of the device will be 17 mm, weight – only 1.8 kg.
Together with the Galaxy Book 3 Ultra, the Galaxy Book 3 Pro will be released, and in two versions – with screens with a diagonal of 14 and 16 inches (in both cases there will be AMOLED panels with a resolution of 3K).
The Galaxy Book 3 Pro is equipped with Core i5-1340P and Core i7-1360P processors, 16 GB of DDR5 RAM, and a 1 TB SSD. There will be no dGPU in these laptops.
The 14-inch model will receive a 63 Wh battery. The thickness of the case will be only 11 mm, and the weight of the device is 1.2 kg. The 16-inch model will receive a battery with a capacity of 76 Wh, the body thickness will be 13 mm, the weight of the device is 1.6 kg. The Galaxy Book 3 Pro will come with a 65W power adapter.
AMD classic: Ryzen 7 7700X drops even further and now costs less than $300
Ryzen 7000 processors continue to get cheaper. Now several major foreign chains are offering the eight-core Ryzen 7 7700X for $299.
Recall that AMD initially priced this CPU at $400, then the company lowered prices for all new items, and this model began to cost $350. Now we have another decline, although it may be temporary.
Discounts also apply to the Ryzen 9 7950X, Ryzen 9 7900X and Ryzen 5 7600X, but in their case, the prices simply fell back to those that AMD set back in November, while the Ryzen 7 7700X fell even more.
Whether this offer will be available globally and how long it will be active is unclear. But let’s recall that yesterday AMD itself admitted that for the past six months it has deliberately limited the supply of its products to the market, which is why prices were inflated.
In addition, we recall that the unique Ryzen 7000X3D will soon enter the market.
Are Intel Arc graphics cards going to be the best value for money now? The company claims to have increased productivity by up to 87%
Intel has released a fresh graphics driver for Arc video cards, which, as the company itself promises, will increase performance by some incredible values.
Of course, not everywhere, but Intel says that in Full HD performance will increase by up to 77%, in 1440p by 87%, and the average increase for older games with DirectX 9, which Arc cards initially had problems with, should increase by 43%. All these figures are valid for the Arc A750, which Intel has just reduced the price to $250.
The growth that Intel promises is really impressive. Under these conditions, the $250 Arc A750 should be the best-value graphics card in the class, as it competes on price with the GeForce RTX 3050 and Radeon RX 6600, which it could previously beat. However, it is better to wait for various tests and evaluate whether such an impressive performance increase really takes place.
How gigantic will these Intel processors be? A comparative photo of LGA7529 and LGA4677 sockets has appeared
We have already seen photos of the LGA7529 socket for the new Intel Xeon server processors, and now it’s time to understand how huge the CPUs themselves will be.
In the comparison photo, you can see the LGA4677 socket for the recently released Sapphire Rapids processors and the much larger LGA7529 for the upcoming Granite Rapids and Sierra Forest CPUs.
According to preliminary calculations, the dimensions of the new CPUs will be about 105 x 70.5 mm, that is, they will be about 70% larger than the current generation, which is rather big in itself. For comparison, the dimensions of the monstrous Epyc Genoa are approximately 72 x 75.4 mm. It is quite possible that the new Intel processors will be the largest on the market at the time of release.
The LGA7529 (Birch Stream-AP) platform is expected next year. As part of the platform, Intel is going to release two lines of completely different processors. The first will be Granite Rapids, which will reportedly contain up to 128 large Redwood Cove + cores, and the second will be Sierra Forest, which will have all small cores, but there will be either 344 or even 528 of them.
