Intel has disabled DirectX 12 support for several of its processors. Due to the potential vulnerability, the company had to take a rather unusual step.
Intel says some of its iGPUs contain a security vulnerability that could allow privilege escalation for executable code.
As a result, Intel graphics driver 18.104.22.16807 disables DirectX 12 support for integrated GPUs in Haswell generation processors. They are equipped with an Intel UHD Gen7 GPU. Given the very modest performance of the stipulated graphics cores, this step by Intel will not be a problem for gamers. However, it should be borne in mind that applications and games that use only DirectX 12 will not work with the Haswell CPU after a driver update.
The cooling system for Palit GeForce RTX 2060 Dual series graphics cards with 12 GB of memory includes two 90 mm fans
Palit Microsystems, which calls itself the largest partner of Nvidia in the production of video cards, introduced the GeForce RTX 2060 Dual and GeForce RTX 2060 Dual OC models with 12 GB of memory. As you know, these are improved versions of the well-known model built on the Nvidia Turing architecture. They differ from the original version in the increased number of CUDA cores and doubled the amount of memory. The cards support Nvidia DLSS, Nvidia Reflex, real-time ray tracing and many other modern technologies. Contrary to the letters of the OS in the name, usually indicating factory overclocking, in both cases the base frequency is 1470 MHz, the increased one is 1650 MHz. GDDR6 memory communicates with the GPU over a 192-bit bus, transferring data on each line at 14 Gbps.
The cooling system design for the new graphics cards includes two 90mm fans. The mounting plate has a Dual-Link DVI-D, HDMI 2.0b and DP1.4a video outputs connector. The card measures 235 x 115 x 40 mm and occupies two slots in the PC case. It consumes 184 watts. It has one 8-pin PCIe auxiliary power connector.
Zotac introduced the GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card with 12 GB of memory
Like Nvidia’s other graphics card partners, Zotac has unveiled the GeForce RTX 2060 with 12GB of memory. According to the source, Nvidia has “called from the stock” the GeForce RTX 2060 model, increasing the number of CUDA cores and doubling the memory from the previous 6 to 12 GB to meet AMD’s recently unveiled Radeon RX 6600.
The Turing graphics architecture at the heart of the GeForce RTX 2060 is still modern as it offers full DirectX 12 Ultimate support. The GPU configuration includes 2,176 CUDA cores, 34 RT cores, and 272 Tensor cores. The GDDR6 memory is connected to a 192-bit bus.
As for the Zotac board, this is a fairly simple and compact model with a cooling system that includes an aluminum heatsink and a couple of fans. The card is powered by a single 8-pin PCIe power connector. No pricing information yet.
There is confusion in the ranks of the new Intel CPUs: the processor with fewer cores is older than the model with more cores. It’s all about the cores themselves
The heterogeneous structure of Intel processors, when there are fast large and small energy efficient cores, in theory can lead to situations where a processor with fewer cores will be better than a model with a larger one. Judging by the latest data, this situation will take place in Intel’s lineup.
The specifications of the mobile CPU Core i5-12650H show that it has fewer cores than the younger Core i5-12500H. But at the same time, the Core i5-12650H received its number for a reason.
Yes, it has 10 cores versus 12 cores for the younger model. But the ratio is important. While the Core i5-12500H has 4 large cores and 8 small cores, the Core i5-12650H has 6 large and 4 small cores. And for most, if not all, this configuration will be faster.
Judging by what we now know about future Alder Lake, there will be no such confusion in the desktop segment, but still we need to wait for the official announcement of all these processors, which will take place early next year.
