Discrete Intel Iris Xe graphics card in 17 games against many competitors. What is a mobile GPU natively capable of?

Published

A large informative test of the discrete video card Intel Iris Xe (DG1) from Asus has appeared on the Web. Many reviews of this adapter previously could not boast of a large number of competitors for comparison – the new one does not have such a problem, although some Tiger Lake mobile processor with a similar iGPU is still missing.

In this case, the source tested the games in two resolutions and modes: 720p with low graphics quality settings and 1080p with medium ones.

As you can see, in the first case, the Intel video card produces on average more than 60 fps, that is, it easily copes with modern games with a large margin. In the second, the performance drops by more than half, but 29 fps was also enough for a completely comfortable game. It would be, because this is an average result, and here it is very important to look in more detail.

For starters, it’s worth saying that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla didn’t launch at all. But there are also a number of games where the performance is noticeably below 25 fps, that is, it simply won’t work. This includes Cyberpunk 2077, Borderlands 3, Dirt 5, The Division 2, Microsoft Flight Simulatior, Horizon Zero Dawn, Metro Exodus, and Watch Dog Legion. That is, out of 17 games, 8 will not be able to play due to low performance, another one did not start at all, and two more are on the verge of playability. Those average 29fps were mainly due to a few games where the performance was very high.

As a result, we can state that Intel Iris Xe is generally not suitable for modern games in Full HD at medium graphics quality settings, and it is not a fact that it is suitable at low ones. But at 720p at low settings, performance is enough even for Cyberpunk 2077, albeit end-to-end.

As for the comparison with other GPUs and iGPUs, the discrete Intel graphics card, having mobile roots, competes just with the integrated graphics processors of mobile APUs and the old GeForce GT 1030. Even the core of the desktop Ryzen 7 5700G is significantly more productive, not to mention the GeForce GTX 1050.

Greenliant G7200 PX Industrial SSD Lineup includes models up to 7.68 TB

Published

on

Greenliant has unveiled the G7200 PX solid-state drives, which it says will provide enterprise-grade data reliability, high performance, and industrial temperatures (-40 ° C to + 85 ° C). The lineup includes models in 1.92, 3.84 and 7.68 TB. They use TLC 3D NAND memory.

The 2.5-inch SATA 6Gb / s drives are compatible with existing systems and are therefore well suited for upgrades by replacing hard drives with SSDs. They provide sequential read and write speeds of up to 550 and 530 MB / s, respectively. The resource is advertised as being able to perform two complete rewrites per day (DWPD) over a period of 5 years.

Among the advantages of the drives, the manufacturer considers the presence of a data loss protection scheme during a power outage, support for hardware encryption using the AES algorithm with a 256-bit key and guaranteed data erasure without the possibility of recovery, as well as support for hot swapping.

Greenliant 7200 PX preview samples are now available. The company plans to begin mass deliveries by the end of 2021.

Published

on

EK, which recently released EK-Quantum Velocity² waterblocks specifically designed for Intel LGA 1700 processors, announced that the original EK-Quantum Velocity can also be used with the new processors. The base of the waterblock is large enough to make good contact with the CPU heat spreader. The only part required for installation is the rear panel.

It is available free of charge in the EK online store and will also be available free of charge in the major EK retail partner stores.

The manufacturer makes a reservation that only one LGA 1700 panel is available from the store for free. If a customer needs to update multiple PCs, please contact our EK support team.

The mounting holes on boards with an LGA 1700 socket are located at the top of a 78 x 78 mm square, but some boards have double mounting holes that also support 75 x 75 mm. This means that all LGA 115x and LGA 1200 processor cooling solutions are compatible with the new processors. The list of waterblocks compatible with the EK-Quantum Velocity Backplate – LGA1700 is as follows:

  • EK-Quantum Velocity – Copper + Plexi
  • EK-Quantum Velocity – Nickel + Plexi
  • EK-Quantum Velocity – Nickel + Acetal
  • EK-Quantum Velocity D-RGB – Nickel + Plexi
  • EK-Quantum Velocity D-RGB – Nickel + Acetal
  • EK-Quantum Velocity D-RGB – Nickel + Frosted Plexi
  • EK-Quantum Velocity D-RGB – Full Nickel
  • EK-Quantum Velocity Strike D-RGB – Black Nickel + Black
  • EK-Quantum Velocity Strike D-RGB – Matte Black + Silver
  • EK-Quantum Velocity Honor D-RGB – Black Nickel + Stars & Stripes
