Intel is slated to launch its first gaming desktop graphics card this year. More precisely, apparently, several models are waiting for us at once.
It is not yet clear what it will be called, but it is usually now called DG2 or Xe-HPG. Apparently, the chief graphic engineer of Intel Raja Koduri today accidentally or not very much lit an engineering sample of a new video card.
In fact, it is impossible to say for sure, but, firstly, there is a certain test device in the photo, which may well be an engineering image of a new generation adapter, and secondly, Koduri in his message just talks about testing something new, and thirdly, you can see 3DMark on the screen with the DirectX DXR subtest, and the current generation of Intel adapters does not support ray tracing.
In any case, from the interesting, it can also be noted that Koduri recalls how in 2012, in the same Intel laboratory, he tested processors with GPU Iris Pro 5200, which were equipped with a separate eDRAM (Crystal Well) memory. Such GPUs were part of some Haswell processors. Koduri claims that the new solution is 20 times more productive.
And this is the most interesting thing. On the one hand, the 20x performance gain is not small. On the other hand, almost 10 years have passed. It is hardly possible to find any intelligible fresh comparisons of the Iris Pro 5200 with something modern, but if we turn to the old tests, then this iGPU performed almost at the level of the discrete GeForce GT 640, yielding to it by about 10%. If you try to multiply the performance of the latter by 20 times, you get something like the GeForce RTX 2080 or almost the RTX 3060 Ti. Of course, these are extremely approximate and very arbitrary estimates, but there are no others yet.
If Intel is preparing a video card of this level, even if it will be an older card in the line, and the rest will have lower performance, it is still very interesting, because most users just need far from the most expensive 3D cards.
The most powerful embedded AMD processors. Ryzen Embedded 5000 Not Shown Yet, But Already Available
Advantech unveiled AIMB-522 motherboard with unseen Ryzen Embedded 5000 embedded processors.
The motherboard itself is not of particular interest, but the CPUs are curious. If usually embedded CPUs are based on mobile devices and are noticeably inferior to desktop ones in all respects, then the Ryzen Embedded 5000 almost in everything corresponds to the usual consumer Ryzen 5000.
In total, the line includes four processors: Ryzen 5950E, Ryzen 5900E, Ryzen 5800E and Ryzen 5600E. At the same time, the younger two are almost identical to consumer counterparts, and the older two offer slightly fewer cores.
As you can see, the Ryzen 5950E has 12 cores versus 16 for the Ryzen 9 5950X. The Ryzen 5900E already has only two fewer cores than the Ryzen 9 5900X. But the base frequencies for older CPUs are exactly the same, although the maximum ones are not indicated.
The names of the CPUs are also valid here, as these are processors based on the Zen 3 architecture.
$870 OLED 2.8K 90Hz screen, Ryzen 7 6800H, three USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 ports, and slim aluminum chassis. Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro 14 2022 Ryzen Edition available for order in China
Retail sales of the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro 14 2022 Ryzen Edition in China will start tomorrow, but the device is already available for pre-order. And it’s better to really hurry up, because pre-ordering the device will cost much less. For example, the base version with a Ryzen 5 6600H CPU, 16GB LPDDR5-6400MHz RAM, and a 512GB SSD is now available for $800 and retails for $960. The Ryzen 7 6800H pre-order version is $870, retail is $1,035.
Now all the key parameters of the laptop have become known. So, Mi Notebook Pro 14 2022 Ryzen Edition received an OLED display with a diagonal of 14 inches, a resolution of 2880 x 1800 pixels, a frame rate of 90 Hz and coverage of 100% of the DCI-P3 color space. For a model without a discrete GPU, there is a fairly powerful cooling system – with two fans and two heat pipes.
The interface connectors are represented by three USB-C 3.2 Gen 2. The device configuration also includes a backlit keyboard, a 56 Wh battery, and an all-metal case. The laptop is 14.9 mm thick and weighs 1.4 kg. The package includes a power supply with an output power of 100 W.
GeForce RTX 3090 Ti drops $1,000 in US price in a couple of months
The official cost of the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti in the US is $2,000, but the top models, with a more efficient cooling system and, moreover, overclocked, sold more. For example, the EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti FTW3 cost $2,150. But now the price has fallen, and much.
There are three models in the EVGA RTX 3090 Ti FTW3 lineup, and the base (non-factory overclocked) is now available in the US for $1,150.
Interestingly, a month and a half ago, the very same $2,150 was asked for a video card, three weeks ago the cost dropped to $1,500, and now another reduction is $250. The other two models (already overclocked) of the series are also priced lower: the Ultra version in the US is offered for $1,200, and the Black version for $1,400.
