Hit game console Steam Deck tested in Geekbench. Graphics performance – at the level of the budget GPU Nvidia GeForce MX350

After Valve released the Windows 10 drivers for its Steam Deck portable console, someone took the opportunity to not only install Windows directly, but also to test the console on Geekbench. The result is interesting.

Benchmark identified the console as Valve Jupiter – at the time of development, the set-top box just passed under this code designation. The AMD APU on which the set-top box is based is recognized as AMD Custom 0405, the graphics processor is AMD Custom GPU 0405. As for performance, in a test using the Vulkan API, the benchmark rated graphics performance at 14,562 points. Is it a lot or a little?

More like a little than a lot. If we turn to the database of the corresponding test, then approximately the same result is shown by the GeForce GTX 660 Ti and the mobile dGPU Nvidia GeForce MX350. True, if the same MX350 most often needs to display a picture on the screen with Full HD resolution, then the GPU Deck is much easier, since the console screen resolution is 1280 x 800 pixels.

Steam Deck sales started just a few weeks ago, but orders are already scheduled until the third quarter of this year – this fact demonstrates how much the set-top box is in demand among potential buyers.

AMD wants to show how to make ultra-cheap modern graphics cards. Radeon RX 6300 may be getting ready for release

AMD wants to show how to make ultra cheap modern graphics

It seems that in the current difficult times, AMD and Nvidia have decided to play a game of who will release a more affordable graphics card.

AMD wants to show how to make ultra-cheap modern graphics cards.  Radeon RX 6300 may be getting ready for release

AMD already has the Radeon RX 6500 XT and RX 6400 with MSRPs of $200 and $170, respectively. Nvidia only has the $250 GeForce RTX 3050. If someone wants to buy an Nvidia card cheaper, they will have to take something from the old generations. And now we do not take into account the real prices in stores.

But the other day it became known that Nvidia is preparing a GeForce GTX 1630 (although this is still an old generation), now there are rumors that AMD wants to release a Radeon RX 6300.

The information was found in the AMD graphics driver code for Linux. A new adapter with the code name Beige Goby and ID 0x7424 was found there. Beige Goby is the codename for all desktop cards on the Navi 24, i.e. RX 6400 and RX 6500 XT. And this means that the novelty will be built on this GPU.

Sources suggest that this will be the Radeon RX 6300 model, if only because the mobile RX 6300M ​​already exists. In addition, the RX 6500 XT already uses Navi 24 to the maximum, and there is no point in making another adapter between the RX 6500 XT and RX 6400. Thus, the assumption regarding the RX 6300 looks the most logical. Such a card could have 512 stream processors. Of course, the performance will be very modest, but for someone it does not matter.

Given that the RX 6400 is already only $170, the RX 6300 will cost $150 or even less.

Even the mid-range GeForce RTX 4060 will get GDDR6X memory. New rumors about RTX 40 cards have surfaced

Even the mid range GeForce RTX 4060 will get GDDR6X memory

Another piece of data about GeForce RTX 40 video cards has appeared on the Web, and this time it also concerns mid-budget models.

Even the mid-range GeForce RTX 4060 will get GDDR6X memory.  New rumors about RTX 40 cards have surfaced

The reliability of the data is questionable, so it’s worth treating them accordingly, but there are even very few rumors about the same RTX 4060, so these, if only for this reason, deserve attention.

So, according to the source, the GeForce RTX 4060 will be based on the AD106 GPU and will have 4608 CUDA cores. It will also have 8 GB of memory and a 192-bit bus. Moreover, the memory will be GDDR6X, that is, with a high frequency.

The RTX 4070 will be powered by an AD104 GPU with 7608 CUDA cores and the same 192-bit memory bus. But the memory itself will be 12 GB. For Nvidia it is uncharacteristic to use not the widest memory bus in this segment, but here it is worth remembering the greatly increased amount of cache memory in the Ada Lovelace architecture, which will be similar to Infinity Cache in AMD cards. It is he who can allow you to compensate for a narrow tire. In addition, fast memory will partially do this.

The RTX 4080 will get an AD103 GPU, 10,752 CUDA cores, a 256-bit bus, and 16GB of memory, while the top-end RTX 4090 will be based on the AD102 with 16,128 CUDA cores and a 384-bit bus. The memory of the card will be 24 GB.

The TDP of the cards, in the order they are listed, will supposedly be 200, 300, 350 and 450 watts.

In general, the information looks very plausible, and partially coincides with early data from trusted sources, but this does not mean that it is correct.

Intel is finally ready to release its desktop graphics cards

Looks like Intel is finally ready to release its Arc discrete desktop graphics cards. Yesterday, a link appeared on the Intel site regarding the Arc A3 models.

True, the link itself did not lead anywhere, and it was later removed, but most likely this means that Intel is already preparing to launch.

In addition, this fact confirms the early data that it is the junior adapters that will be the first to enter the market, as is the case with mobile cards. AMD and Nvidia always do the opposite.

As a reminder, at first, Arc maps will appear only in China and only for PC builders. Then they will be available in retail, but again only for the Chinese market. And only sometime later this summer they will enter the global market, already together with older models.

Considering that the Radeon RX 7000 and GeForce RTX 40 graphics cards are due out in the second half of the year, and the first ones may appear in the fall, it is completely unclear how and with what Intel adapters will compete. In such a situation, the company will only have to significantly reduce prices.

As for the first models, they should be Arc A310 and A380 with 512 and 1024 cores, respectively.
