We have repeatedly written that “non-overclockable” Intel Alder Lake processors can be overclocked – for this you need to get an appropriate motherboard based on the Z690 or B660 chipset. There are already results of successful overclocking of a variety of Alder Lake CPUs, and now the source has published the result of overclocking the exclusive six-core Core i5-12490F processor. The exclusivity of the CPU lies in the fact that it is presented only in the Chinese market.
The Core i5-12490F maxes out at 4.6 GHz, but the BCLK OC feature allowed us to bump the clock up to 5.7 GHz, about a quarter. The voltage also had to be increased. As you can see in the screenshot, it was 1.696 V. There is an assumption that the excellent overclocking potential of the Core i5-12490F is due to the fact that this CPU, unlike the six-core Core i5-12500, is built on a Core i7 chip with partially disabled cores.
The GeForce RTX 3050 can now also be almost fully used for Ethereum mining. Nvidia LHR v3 security cracked 90%
A couple of weeks ago, the LHR protection in Nvidia graphics cards was cracked, which allowed everyone to use accelerators for Ethereum mining at full capacity again. But in fact, then the protection of LHR v2 was cracked, but not LHR v3.
The LHR v3 version is present in Nvidia’s latest releases: RTX 3050 and RTX 3080 12GB. And it is still not completely hacked, but now the NiceHash miner is able to use 90% of the performance of these cards when mining cryptocurrency. It’s not a complete hack yet, but it’s getting very close.
Fortunately, at the moment the cryptocurrency market is in a state of decline, so it hardly makes any sense to buy the same RTX 3050 for mining, which means that gamers need not worry for now.
By the way, a large article has been published on our website with an analysis of methods for cracking Nvidia protection.
Redmi Note 11T Pro+ will get the best 144Hz flat screen. Together with the smartphone will present Ryzen Edition Redmi Book Pro 2022
Lu Weibong, President of Xiaomi Group China and CEO of Redmi, posted new teasers of the upcoming presentation on his Weibo social network page.
The first teaser is dedicated to the Redmi Note 11T Pro + smartphone, which is equipped with a flagship flat LCD screen with a ratio of 20.5: 9 and support for an adaptive refresh rate (7 values) of the image up to 144 Hz. Also, the screen provides reliable eye protection and supports Dolby Vision.
Lu Weibing said that Redmi Note 11T Pro + will be equipped with the best display in its class, and we tend to believe him, because this has happened before in the Redmi line.
Redmi Note 11T Pro+ is also confirmed to be equipped with fast LPDDR5 RAM and improved heat dissipation technology.
The presentation of the novelty will take place on May 24, along with the smartphone, the Ryzen Edition Redmi Book Pro 2022 laptop will be shown, the teaser of which was also published by Lu Weibing.

AMD will show the world’s first dual-chip chipset in a few days. The company is preparing the announcement of X670E, X670 and B650 chipsets
As soon as we managed to touch on the topic of AMD’s announcement at Computex 2022 a few days later, data appeared on the Web that the company could show us.
Unfortunately, this data does not apply to processors or video cards. It’s about chipsets. Sources say AMD will unveil at least three next-generation chipsets for the AM5 platform during its event. These will be the X670E, X670 and B650 chipsets. Judging by the names, we should also expect the A620, but there is no data yet. It is likely that such a chipset will simply be released later.
Let’s start with the older solution. AMD X670E will be the top chipset, and the letter E in the name stands for Extreme. It won’t differ from the X670 in terms of features and capabilities, but motherboards based on this chipset should provide PCIe 5.0 connectivity to both the GPU and the M.2 slot, or possibly multiple slots, while motherboards X670-based ones may use PCIe 4.0 instead. Whether there will be any other differences remains to be seen.
But the source confirms early reports that the X670 (respectively, the X670E) will be a dual-chip chipset with two identical chipsets called Promontory 21. And the B650 chipset will be the same chip.
