Difficulty installing drivers, broken games and performance below the budget GeForce GTX 1650. First impressions of the 3D accelerator Intel Arc A350M

Laptops with Intel’s latest discrete 3D accelerators of the Ark series have gone on sale in South Korea, and one of them, the Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro, has already become the subject of a large review with disassembly and various tests. Thanks to this, you can get an idea of ​​​​the capabilities of the Intel Arc A350M – the simplest 3D accelerator of the Arc line at the moment.

Galaxy Book2 Pro in the NT950XEV-G51A configuration fell into the hands of enthusiasts. This version is equipped with a 12-core Core i5-1240P processor, 16GB LPDDR5 memory, Full HD AMOLED screen. As for the Intel Arc A350M, this 3D accelerator is based on a GPU labeled ACM-G11, connected to 4 GB of memory via a 64-bit bus. By the way, the photos and videos below give a great idea of ​​the layout of thin and light laptops based on Intel Alder Lake-P processors. Pay attention to how the cooling system is organized.

Problems with Arc A350M started at the driver installation stage. First, the drivers for the discrete GPU are not as up-to-date as the drivers for the CPU’s built-in GPU. Secondly, to manage and update the Arc GPU, Intel came up with a separate software that also needs to be dealt with. Thirdly, in Intel’s proprietary graphics control panel (which is not Arc Control), the discrete GPU is displayed as “Unknown 5694” instead of Arc A350M.

In 3DMark tests, the Arc A350M was faster than the GeForce MX450 with a TDP of 25W, but noticeably slower than the GeForce GTX 1650 with a TDP of 50W. The GeForce GTX 1650 is very popular in entry-level gaming laptops, so the Arc A350M is not suitable for these purposes, but it is quite suitable for thin and light laptops. Interestingly, in the real-time ray tracing test, Port Royal Arc A350M earned only 200 points, but it still outperformed the GeForce GTX 1650, which does not support Ray Tracing.

In games, reviewers noted the strange work of the 3D accelerator: its relatively weak loading and unstable frequencies. In some cases, in simple games, the frequency reaches 2.2 GHz and keeps it that way for a long time. There are issues with the games themselves, and some games (Forza Horizon 5 and COD Cold War) didn’t work at all.

In general, despite the fact that notebooks based on Intel Arc GPUs have already gone on sale, the company still has a lot of work to do to finalize these 3D accelerators. As for discrete graphics cards based on GPU Arc, they are rumored to be delayed until mid-summer. And the example of Arc A350M shows why.

Ryzen 9 7845HX is PassMarks most powerful processor and its

The first test results of the Ryzen 9 7845HX mobile processor have appeared on the Web. And it immediately became the most productive PC in the PassMark database.

The novelty scored 46,791 points, while the Core i9-12900HX, which is in second place, is gaining only 35,628 points. If we compare the new AMD product with its predecessors, then the Ryzen 9 6900HX is gaining 24,640 points, that is, the new model is almost twice as fast!

And the Ryzen 9 7845HX is not a flagship. It contains 12 cores, while the Ryzen 9 7945HX will have 16 cores, so the same benchmark should be much faster.

True, the PassMark database does not yet have the new Core i9-13xxxHX, which are also much faster than their predecessors, so it is not clear who will win this confrontation in the end.

Recall, Ryzen 7x45HX represent the most productive AMD mobile processors in the new generation. They are based on the Zen 4 architecture and are manufactured using a 5nm process. We also recently saw what the new Radeon 780M iGPU is capable of in other Ryzen 7000 APUs.

128 core AMD Bergamo processors will be released this half of

AMD’s 96-core Epyc Genoa processors have already been released, and now the company is going to release 128-core Bergamo CPUs. Previously, AMD itself talked about them, and now the company has told when to expect them.

128-core AMD Bergamo processors will be released this half of the year, and the monstrous Instinct MI300 will appear in the second half of the year

Bergamo will be released in the current half of the year, that is, in the next few months. AMD does not yet provide more accurate data. Recall that these CPUs will have the same SP5 performance as Genoa, but the configuration will include only Zen 4C cores instead of full-fledged Zen 4. AMD has not previously said much about Zen 4C, but it is known for sure that these are not small cores, like in Intel, and the core of the same architecture, but with a number of changes.

AMD is also going to release Siena Epyc processors, which will be optimized for use in telecommunications equipment. But there are no details about them yet, except that it is known that they will be released later than Bergamo. Monstrous hybrid specialized processors Instinct MI300 will be released in the second half of the year.

Recall that AMD admitted that it had limited the supply of its products to the market over the past six months, due to which the prices for a number of products were inflated.

Nvidia when will the budget GeForce RTX 40s appear for

Photos of Nvidia GPUs of the Ada Lovelace generation, designed for low-cost video cards, have leaked to the Web.

Nvidia, when will the budget GeForce RTX 40s appear for the desktop segment?  Photos of junior GPUs AD107/AD106 for mobile RTX 4050/4060/4070 hit the Network

In the picture you can see the AD107 and AD106 GPUs. So far, there are no processor data carriers in the desktop segment, but they have already been announced in the mobile segment: these are the RTX 4050/4060 and RTX 4070.

The new GPUs are very compact. The smaller one has an area of ​​about 150-160 mm2, and the larger one has an area of ​​180-190 mm2. In comparison, the AD104, which the desktop RTX 4070 Ti is based on and the mobile RTX 4090 is supposed to be based on, measures almost 300mm2.

The AD107 has 3072 CUDA cores while the AD106 offers 4608 CUDA cores. In both cases, video cards will have a 128-bit memory bus.

Laptops based on graphics cards with these GPUs should hit the market soon.
