Intel cannot solve the problem with increased consumption of Arc video cards in idle time, but explained how to do it to users

Published

Tests of the Intel Arc A750 and A770 video cards showed that, in general, these are good solutions for their money, but not without drawbacks. For example, compared to competitors, Intel’s new products have a slightly increased power consumption under load, and in idle time the difference is about four times. And Intel, apparently, itself can do nothing with it.

In idle, the new Arc consumes about 40-50 watts versus 7-10 watts for competing adapters from Nvidia and AMD. This problem can be solved, but Intel cannot do it, so she explained how users can do it themselves.

Firstly, in the BIOS settings of the motherboard, you need to set the Native ASPM value to Enabled, and secondly, enable the PCI Express root port ASPM and select the L1 Substates value.

In Windows, you need to find the “Power and sleep” section in the system settings, go to the “Advanced power settings” section, select the power scheme used, go to the “Change advanced power settings” item, find the PCI Express item there, go to the Link State item Power Management and select maximum power saving.

How much this will reduce the idle consumption of Arc cards remains to be seen.

Even the $900 RX 7900 XT is enough to compete with the $1200 GeForce RTX 4080. There are tests in 3DMark

Even the 900 RX 7900 XT is enough to compete

As we learned today, reviews of the Radeon RX 7900 video cards will be published on December 12th. But the first tests in normal benchmarks appeared today.

Even the $900 RX 7900 XT is enough to compete with the $1200 GeForce RTX 4080.  There are tests in 3DMark

Both of AMD’s new products lit up in 3DMark. Unfortunately, in the Fire Strike and Time Spy tests, which are quite old, it is still much better than the results in Geekbench.

True, the results of AMD’s new products themselves look debatable. In Time Spy at 4K, there is almost no difference between the RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT, and both cards perform roughly on par with the GeForce RTX 4080.

In Fire Strike, the younger RX 7900 XT is already successfully fighting the RTX 4080, and the older RX 7900 XTX is about 10% faster. Relative to the RX 6950 XT, AMD’s new flagship provides a gain of 25-30%, which is rather modest. And this can be written down as a minus for AMD’s new products, especially against the background of the catastrophically more powerful RTX 4090.

However, keep in mind the prices. The RX 7900 XT, which in both tests is quite suitable for a direct competitor to the RTX 4080 in terms of performance, is cheaper than the Nvidia card by $300 or 25%! And against this background, the lag behind the RTX 4090 is completely irrelevant. And if you calculate the ratio of performance and price, AMD’s new products look much better than the same RTX 4090, not to mention the RTX 4080.

Of course, in games the situation may be somewhat different, especially since these 3DMark tests are very old. But here it is worth noting that, if you look at the comparison of the RTX 30 and RX 6000 cards, the balance of power roughly corresponds to what the cards show in games.

Radeon RX 7900 Video Card Reviews To Be Published Earlier

The Radeon RX 7900 graphics cards will go on sale on December 13th. Previously, it was believed that the reviews would be published on the same day, but now it turned out that they were not.

Radeon RX 7900 Video Card Reviews To Be Published Earlier Than Expected

Reviews will appear on December 12, that is, the day before the launch. This will allow everyone to get acquainted with the new products and decide on the purchase before the start of sales. On December 12, reviews of both new AMD video cards will be published at once.

Recall that the Radeon RX 7900 XT and RX 7900 XTX are priced at $900 and $1,000 respectively. This is in the US and excluding taxes. At the moment, Nvidia has no direct competitors for these new products. The RTX 4070 Ti, with an expected price of $900, won’t be released until January, while the RTX 4080 is priced at $1,200. True, there are rumors that Nvidia will lower the price a little, and even without this the adapter is already available in some places at a price below the recommended one, but it is unlikely that the RTX 4080 will cost $1000 to directly compete with the new AMD flagship.

GeForce RTX 4070 will get as many CUDA cores as RTX 3070

GeForce RTX 4070 will get as many CUDA cores as

Nvidia will release a GeForce RTX 4070 Ti graphics card soon, but it will still be expensive. According to the latest data, we are talking about $ 900 in the US and without taxes. Now we have the first data on the more affordable RTX 4070.

GeForce RTX 4070 will get as many CUDA cores as RTX 3070

The model will be based on the AD104-250-A1 GPU with 5888 CUDA cores, which is the same as the RTX 3070. For comparison, the RTX 4070 Ti will have the same GPU but with 7680 CUDA cores.

Also, the younger card will receive 12 GB of GDDR6X memory with a frequency of 21 GHz, 36 MB of L2 cache and will be characterized by a TDP of 250 W. There is no data on the memory bus, but given the amount of memory, it will probably remain 192-bit.

Nothing is known about performance yet, but the number of CUDA cores on the RTX 4070 will be almost 25% less than on the RTX 4070 Ti, so the performance will definitely be significantly lower.

The information was shared by the insider kopite7kimi, who at one time was the first to accurately describe the parameters of the GeForce RTX 30 cards, and he also described the RTX 40 cards more than once. In general, it is one of the most reliable sources in this segment.
