Sometimes devices fall into the hands of enthusiasts, which were canceled many years ago and did not get into the series. One of the Reddit users managed to get hold of a prototype AMD Vega family card, which never entered the market.

The software identifies the card as Radeon Pro VII, and the Device PCI ID is the same as that of the Radeon Instinct MI60 accelerator, but this is a separate product, just related to those mentioned above.

Under the cooling system is the GPU Vega 20 with four stacks of HBM2 memory with a total volume of 32 GB. Two connectors (8+6) are used for power supply.

Despite all the 4096 stream processors that are available in the GPU configuration, the performance of the card is approximately on par with the Radeon Pro VII, which has fewer active units.

According to available data, the card could have been called the Radeon Pro V420, but in any case, AMD refused to release this product into a series.

Corsair Xeneon Flex 45 OLED foldable monitor goes on sale

Corsair’s new Xeneon Flex gaming monitor has been launched in the US. There are many features here, but the main one is the ability to bend the panel to a radius of 0.8 m. Thus, the user can work on a completely flat monitor, and during the game the panel can be curved for more complete immersion.

The specifications say that Xeneon Flex is more than suitable for games: Nvidia G-Sync and AMD FreeSync Premium technologies are supported, the frame rate is 240 Hz, the pixel response time in Grey-to-Grey mode is only 0.03 s. It uses an LG OLED panel with a peak brightness of 1000 cd/m2. and a contrast ratio of 1,350,000 : 1, so for multimedia purposes (watching movies, for example), Xeneon Flex is also suitable. The resolution of the 45-inch panel is 3440 x 1440 pixels.

Of course, the monitor is not cheap: the cost is $ 2,000. But the main thing is that this is not a concept, but a serial and mass model.

Intel has started the process of retiring processors that were

The 11th generation Intel Core processors are relatively recent by market standards, but the company has already begun the end-of-life process, that is, the end-of-life process.

Intel has started the process of retiring processors that were less than two years old.  Rocket Lake will ship for another year

The latest “Product Change Notice” states that on February 6, Intel started the process of phasing out Rocket Lake CPU production. However, as always in such cases, this does not mean that such processors will abruptly completely disappear from the market. The last batch of such CPUs will be shipped only on February 23, 2024.

Rocket Lake-S processors were introduced in March 2021. They received quite noticeable changes relative to the 10th generation Core, switching to a new architecture for the desktop segment, but at the same time they retained the old 14 nm process technology, thus becoming a transitional link.

This is what Intel traded the Pentiums for One of

Intel Processor processors are just starting to hit the market in PCs and laptops, and today we can see one of the first tests of the CPU Processor N100 at the heart of the Morefine M9 mini PC.

Recall that the N100 has four small cores with a frequency of 3.6 GHz and a TDP of 6 watts. In this mini-PC, the processor is cooled by active CO.

The authors of the ETA Prime channel, unfortunately, did not conduct any large tests and did not compare the new product with other CPUs. So for now we can note a little.

For example, in Geekbench, the processor scores 960 and 2658 points in single-threaded and multi-threaded modes, respectively. Pentium N5105, for comparison, scores 587 and 2078 points, that is, the difference is quite significant.

In 3DMark Wild Life, the novelty scores 2929 points, in Night Raid the result is 4776 points. The authors even tested the mini-PC in games. For example, in Skyrim at minimum settings and 720p resolution, you can get up to 60 fps, and Half-Life 2 in Full HD shows twice as much at maximum settings. Even GTA V at 720p at the lowest settings is quite playable at around 30 fps.

The Processor N100 even allows you to run PSP GameCube and PlayStation 2 emulators.

Of course, such a CPU is not focused on some very resource-intensive applications, but it will still be interesting to look at a comparison of such a novelty and, for example, the old Intel Core i3.
