Despite the fact that Intel has already introduced older Raptor Lake desktop CPUs, it is only getting ready to release new Alder Lake processors. We are talking about ultra-power efficient Alder Lake-N CPUs, and today we have a first look at a couple of such models.
They are called Core i3-N300 and Core i3-N305. There is a version that these are the older Alder Lake-N, and the rest will be presented under the new Processor brand, which will replace the Pentium and Celeron.
The most important feature of the new products is that they have eight cores, but these are all small cores. They, recall, do not support Hyper-Threading. Core i3-N305 frequencies are 1.8-3.8 GHz. And such a CPU in Geekbench is gaining 1025 and 4420 points in single-threaded and multi-threaded modes, respectively. For comparison, the high-performance Core i7-8750H gains about the same, and now we are talking only about small cores. Of course, Geekbench doesn’t show real-world performance in apps, but the results so far are encouraging.
Thus, apparently, the new CPUs will be sufficiently productive for their segment, despite the fact that these will be the weakest processors of the Core family within their generation.
OLED monitors are becoming more and more affordable. LG asks $1,700 for 45-inch 240Hz UltraGear 45GR95QE
LG has revealed the cost of the UltraGear 45GR95QE monitor, presented in August: the new product is estimated at $1,700. Pre-orders will begin to be accepted on December 12, real sales will start on December 28.
The UltraGear 45GR95QE features a curved (0.8m curvature diameter) 45-inch OLED panel with 3440 x 1440 resolution, 240Hz frame rate, 0.3ms pixel response time and 98% coverage of the DCI-P3 color space.
The monitor supports Picture-in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture modes, is endowed with a pair of HDMI 2.1 ports, a DisplayPort 1.4 connector, and a USB 3.0 port hub. The device is compatible with AMD FreeSync Premium and NVIDIA G-SYNC technologies.
The 8-core Ryzen 7 5700X dropped to $200 during the US holiday sale. Ryzen 7 5800X has become almost 50% more affordable
Black Friday in the US brought significant discounts on AMD Ryzen 5000 processors. Thus, the 8-core Ryzen 7 5700X model with a TDP of 65 W became available for $100 – on the Newegg site this CPU can be bought for only $200.
Ryzen 7 5800X is also 8-core, but with a TDP of 105W. It is offered for $238, which is $210 (or 46%) less than the official retail price at the time of debut ($449).
Significant discounts on processors of the ninth family. So, the 12-core Ryzen 9 5900X is offered for $349 (minus $202 from the official retail price at the start of sales), and for the 16-core ex-flagship Ryzen 9 5950X they ask for $479.
Less than 3 liters of volume, liquid metal and a discrete graphics card. Minisforum HX99G mini-PC is preparing for release
Minisforum will soon release the HX99G mini PC based on Ryzen 6000 and Radeon RX 6000.
The novelty will largely repeat the HX90G model, offering a more modern APU. More precisely, it is based on the Ryzen 9 6900HX, and for gamers it is more important that the Radeon RX 6600M is used here. All this is cooled by a very massive CO with seven heat pipes, and liquid metal is used as a thermal interface.
Of the rest, two slots for RAM, two slots for SSD M.2 2280 format, a pair of HDMI ports, one DisplayPort, RJ45 (2.5 Gb), USB 3.1, USB 3.2 (x3), USB-C can be noted. The dimensions are 206 x 203 x 68.6 mm, so the new product is a very productive solution in its dimensions.
No pricing yet, but the Ryzen 9 5900HX-based HX90G is $800 as a Barebones kit. The novelty will probably be a little more expensive.
For those looking for more CPU performance for about the same money, Minisforum has the Neptune NAD9 based on the Core i9-12900HX. But this mini PC does not have a discrete graphics card.
