The shortage of components on the market does not subside, however, this does not prevent manufacturers from preparing new devices for release. AMD is already starting preparations for the presentation of mobile video cards and processors. And something about the new graphics from the red company is already known.
More information about the yet unannounced line appeared on Twitter. Here’s what Patrick Schur, a renowned insider, spoke about the flagship direction of the Big Navi family.
Navi 22 (Mobile) 🧐
– 146 W TGP
– 190-bit wide memory interface (up to 6 memory chips)
– 90 / 110 / 135 W TGP
– 160-bit wide memory interface (up to 5 memory chips)
Die Size: 18.31 mm × 18.27 mm ≈ 334.52 mm²
Package: 40 mm × 40 mm

This Navi 22 comes in two versions – the powerful XT and the simplified XL (these are unofficial names). The older version of the accelerator will have a thermal package of 146 watts. The power of the younger one is not exactly indicated, but it is known that the video memory of the new products will work with 192-bit (there is a typo in the tweet) and 160-bit buses, respectively. At the same time, it is planned to use up to 6 chips on the XT, while in the younger XL up to 5. Perhaps it will be 12 GB and 10 GB of video memory. More than some Nvidia desktop accelerators.
As an insider, it is known that the cache size for SAM will be 96 MB. Also, video cards of this family will be able to offer up to 40 computing processors (2560 streaming).
Frequency indicators have not yet been specified. But the BIOS for models of the cheaper Navi 23 line has already been studied in Igor ‘Lab.
The Germans shared a screenshot showing the main technical characteristics of this family. So, the maximum frequency for such chips is 2350 MHz, which is much lower than that of the desktop brothers. Nevertheless, Navi 23 mobile accelerators have very low heat dissipation – up to 90 watts. It is likely that the older Navi 22 line boasts higher frequencies.
Rumor: Nvidia Stops Production of GeForce RTX 3080 GPUs After GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Drops in Price
A steep rise in the value of major cryptocurrencies triggered a cascade of events that resulted in the collapse of prices for new video cards. Many models have fallen in price, including top ones like the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti: with a recommended price of $1,200 (in the US), it is offered by the largest American retailers, Newegg and Amazon, for less than $1,000.
A small price gap between the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and the GeForce RTX 3080 with 12GB of memory has led Nvidia to suspend shipments of GPUs to partners for the latter. So wrote one of the Twitter users familiar with the situation. It is impossible to confirm or refute these words, but in general such a development of events can be considered quite probable.
Up to 8 XE cores and 6 GB of memory: the first information about the Intel Arc Pro A50/A40 graphics cards appeared
The database of the SiSoftware Sandra test package has fresh data on the upcoming Arc A40 Pro and Arc A50 Pro graphics cards. These are graphics accelerators for workstations that are designed for engineering tasks.
The A50 Pro has a full ACM-G11 GPU with 8 Xe cores (128 execution units/1024 FP32 cores), while the A40 Pro is likely to get a stripped-down version of the chip. The clock frequency is 2.45 GHz.
Both cards have 6 GB GDDR6 memory, indicating a 96-bit memory bus. In this regard, both models are similar to the Arc A380 mobile card, which has almost the same configuration.
Thus, the company continues to prepare its entry-level products. When high-performance gaming and professional solutions based on the ACM-G10 GPU will appear, it is not reported. It is also not yet clear whether the Arc A40 Pro and Arc A50 Pro cards will be available in retail or whether they will appear only as part of workstations.
Earlier, Intel introduced its first gaming graphics card for $150.
Named the likely date of the announcement of the mobile processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2
Qualcomm has updated its 2022 product launch roadmap. And there, among other things, they indicated the likely date for the announcement of the flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. It is expected to be shown on the first day of the Snapdragon Summit event, which will be held from November 14 to 17.
Qualcomm also announced the Snapdragon X70 5G modem that will be included with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. It is credited with download speeds of up to 10 Gbps, as well as new advanced features for working in fifth-generation networks.
The processor (SM8550) will be manufactured using TSMC’s 4nm process. It will use a three-cluster layout. The composition is expected to include one super-powerful Cortex X3 core, two productive Cortex-A720 and A710, as well as three energy-efficient Cortex-A510. An Adreno740 graphics accelerator is also expected.
It is assumed that the first smartphone based on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor will be Xiaomi 13, its presentation is expected before the end of 2022.
