The sensational spring story of how Intel forgot to release a graphics driver for Rocket Lake-S processors did not repeat itself this time: Alder Lake-S received the driver just in time. It runs as 184.108.40.20628 and is the first version of the graphics driver for the Core i5-12600K, Core i7-12700K, and Core i9-12900K. It is compatible with Windows 10 and Windows 11 OS starting from Windows 10 20H2.
Interestingly, Intel in the description of the first version of the driver indicates that the integrated GPU Alder Lake-S has problems in the games Dark Souls 3 and Forza Horizon 4, as well as the GFXBench benchmark. There may also be “anomalies” when you disconnect and connect the video cable while watching Netflix. Apparently, an updated driver should be expected soon with the elimination of these problems.
$ 5,000 Nvidia graphics card with no DirectX support or video outputs. A detailed review of the CMP 170HX has appeared
The Nvidia CMP 170HX is a unique graphics card, and today we have the opportunity to take a look at its full review.
Recall that the CMP 170HX is a specialized video card for mining. Only, unlike other adapters in the line, this one is based on a GPU that is not intended for the consumer market.
The heart is a huge GPU GA100, but in the case of the CMP 170HX, it seems that partially defective chips are used. Firstly, there are only 4480 active CUDA cores (out of 8192), and secondly, there is only 8 GB of memory against 40 or 80 GB of Nvidia A100 accelerators. But this is HBM2e memory with a bandwidth of 1.5 TB / s! As a result, Ethereum mining performance exceeds 160 MH / s.
We can learn some very interesting things from the review. For example, the GPU along with the memory is covered with a giant heat-distribution cover. Perhaps the largest among video cards. And the CMP 170HX is not only devoid of any video outputs, but in general it is not technically capable of running games, or even speeding up any calculations, since there is no support for the DirectX or Vulkan APIs and calculations with CUDA support do not work. In Windows, the card is defined as an RTX 3090, and it is allegedly even loaded by the system, but it is not clear what exactly, since applications cannot use the accelerator.
It remains to add that such a card costs about $ 5,000.
Linux kernel code already knows about AMD 96-core processors
The latest Linux kernel patch has received the first confirmation of the existence of AMD processors with 96 cores.
More precisely, it talks about the new AMD Family 19h 10h-1Fh and A0h-AFh CPUs, which can contain up to 12 chiplets. Recall that each chiplet currently contains eight cores.
The code does not indicate which processors this information applies to, but, of course, we are not talking about consumer Ryzen. In this case, we are dealing with either server-side Epyc or Threadripper. And with regard to the former, everything agrees with the data of AMD itself.
Recall that the company recently talked about the Epyc Genoa processors on the Zen 4 architecture, which will just have up to 96 cores. As a result, we now know that the new Epyc chiplets will still contain eight cores, but the number of chiplets will increase. And in Bergamo processors, their number should reach 16 at all, if AMD does not change the chiplets for these CPUs.
Dual processors, dual 4K Sony Micro OLED screens, eight cameras and Mac-like performance. Apple headset is expected in the fourth quarter of 2022
Recently, rumors have become more frequent regarding Apple’s upcoming mixed reality headset. Prominent analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of TF International Securities describes it as a standalone device that does not require an iPhone or Mac connection.
The mixed reality headset will feature two 4K Micro OLED displays from Sony, as well as two processors. The main processor will have the performance level of the Apple M1 single-chip system, and the auxiliary processor will process information from the sensors.
It is also reported that the headset will receive up to eight cameras that will be used in augmented reality applications. In addition, the device can be used as a full-fledged gadget for virtual reality applications.
Previous rumors have indicated that the headset will weigh just 200-300 grams. At the same time, how much the device will cost is still unknown: a very wide range is called from 1000 to 3000 dollars.
It is confirmed that the device could be released as early as the fourth quarter of 2022.
