Found the cause of overheating flagship smartphones? Experts believe that the very architecture of Arm processor cores may be to blame

Published

Modern top-end single-chip systems for smartphones are known for their hot temper. This became the norm last year, and with the release of Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Exynos 2200, the situation has only worsened. However, perhaps the problem is not with Samsung and Qualcomm at all?

Found the cause of overheating flagship smartphones?  Experts believe that the very architecture of Arm processor cores may be to blame

According to industry analysts cited by the source, the very design of Arm’s reference processor cores causes performance and thermal issues.

Currently, the Qualcomm Snapdragon and Samsung Exynos platforms are used in most flagship Android smartphones, and these devices have issues in terms of heat, performance, and power consumption. The application processors were developed by Arm, the same problems were confirmed in both products manufactured by Samsung Electronics and TSMC, and therefore it can be said that the cause is not the manufacturers, but the developer

However, some experts believe that overheating problems are the result of a combination of various factors, such as manufacturing processes, CPU configuration, peripheral components, and the performance of the smartphone itself.

The Apple A platforms are also based on the Arm design, but Apple and Arm are customizing the processors for iOS use. On the other hand, Samsung and Qualcomm are developing single-chip systems for use in various smartphone models from various manufacturers, and those processors that use the design without any changes seem to have problems.

At the same time, it is worth noting that at least the Dimensity 9000 does not suffer so much from overheating, and in the Exynos 2200 the main problem is not the processor part at all, but the GPU, which in this SoC has nothing to do with Arm, since it is based on the AMD architecture.

We waited two months and we will wait another two weeks. AMD told when it will release a new driver for Radeon RX 6000 and other cards (older)

We waited two months and we will wait another two

AMD top manager Frank Azor, who is responsible for the direction of gaming solutions, promised users of 3D cards Radeon RX 6000 and older a new Adrenaline driver: it will appear within two weeks.

The situation, if not extraordinary, is rather strange: since the release of the Radeon RX 7000 line, the company has consistently updated the driver for them four times already, while for models based on the RDNA2 architecture (that is, the Radeon RX 6000) and older, not a single driver has been released.

In general, the company adheres to the strategy of releasing a unified Adrenaline driver for all models of its video cards (at least for those based on the RDNA3 and RDNA2 architectures), and Frank Azor once again confirmed this. But only recently the implementation of this strategy has stalled.

The GeForce RTX 4060 Ti can be 20-25% faster than the RTX 3060 Ti. Tests of Nvidia adapter based on GPU AD106 appeared

The first test results of an Nvidia video card based on the AD106 GPU in its full configuration have appeared on the Web.

What this model will be called is still unclear, but based on early leaks, it could be the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti. True, those very leaks attributed to it a little less CUDA cores, that is, the GPU will be slightly cut.

So, the AD106 configuration allegedly includes 4608 CUDA cores. Also, the specified video card has 8 GB of memory and probably a 128-bit bus. Tests in AIDA64 are not related to reality, but the results in 3DMark are already more useful.

The GeForce RTX 4060 Ti (let’s call it that for convenience) was compared with the RTX 3070 Ti and RTX 2080 Super. You can see that the new product, depending on the test, is either a little faster or a little slower than the RTX 3070 Ti. We can say that there is parity between the cards. At the same time, the TDP of the novelty is 180 W versus 290 W for the RTX 3070 Ti.

According to the leaks, the RTX 4060 Ti will receive not 4608 CUDA cores, but 4352 cores, that is, about 5% less. Accordingly, the performance may be a little less, but here the situation will also depend on the frequencies. Either way, if the information is correct, the RTX 4060 Ti will be about 20-25% faster than the RTX 3060 Ti. However, at the same time, you need to understand that the new product can be more expensive, because so far in the RTX 40 line, this is exactly the situation relative to the RTX 30.

Nvidia quietly released the most powerful version of the GeForce RTX 3060, but it only has 6 GB of memory

Nvidia quietly released the most powerful version of the GeForce

Nvidia seems to have quietly released another version of the GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card. A version with the GA106 GPU in its full configuration has been added to the TechPowerUp database.

Nvidia quietly released the most powerful version of the GeForce RTX 3060, but it only has 6 GB of memory

That is, such an adapter has 3840 CUDA cores versus 3584 cores for the regular RTX 3060. By the way, the mobile RTX 3060 just has the same 3840 CUDA cores, but due to significantly lower frequencies, of course, it cannot compete with the desktop version.

The source says the new RTX 3060 is already in use in some off-the-shelf PCs from Asus, Dell, MSI and others. At the same time, such a card may not appear in retail.

Interestingly, the memory capacity of the new modification is only 6 GB, that is, half as much as the original card. As a reminder, there is also a retail RTX 3060 with 8 GB of memory and a 128-bit bus, which was introduced at the end of last year.

How critical 6 GB of memory will be for the RTX 3060 is difficult to say without tests, but the mobile versions have exactly this amount of memory.

The source suggests that the new version was released in order to get rid of the GA106 GPU stock faster.
