Intel is rushing to bring new processors to market. The company told when it will launch Raptor Lake

Published

Intel has roughly described the release schedule for the new Raptor Lake processors. There are no exact dates yet, but Intel says that desktop CPUs should be expected in the fall, and mobile ones will be released at the end of the year.

Intel is rushing to bring new processors to market.  The company told when it will launch Raptor Lake

We build on Alder Lake’s lead with Raptor Lake in the second half of this year and Meteor Lake in 2023. To date, we have shipped over 35 million units of Alder Lake. In the current market, we also see the relative strength of premium solutions. We look forward to building on that momentum with the launch of the next-generation Raptor Lake family of products, starting with our desktop CPUs this fall and moving to our mobile family by the end of the year. The Raptor Lake family will offer customers significant benefits, including double-digit generation-to-generation performance gains and Alder Lake socket compatibility. And in 2023, we will introduce our first disaggregated Intel 4-based CPU, Meteor Lake, which performs well in both our labs and our customers’ labs.

If the launch of Intel means the start of sales, then Raptor Lake will be released even earlier than expected. At least mobile CPUs. Recall that last fall only the older desktop processors Alder Lake K were released. The remaining models of the line became available in January, and mobile solutions had to wait until February. At the same time, recent rumors said that only Raptor Lake K models will also be available from the desktop before the end of the year, but this does not contradict Intel’s statement.

The Raptor Lake announcement is expected on September 28, but it could be nominal. There is also a chance that the new CPUs will significantly rise in price relative to the current generation, as Intel has directly said that it will raise prices.

Intel introduced Arc Pro A40 and Arc Pro A50 graphics

Everyone is waiting for real gaming graphics cards of the Arc line from Intel, but the company is in no hurry. But today, the range of Intel video cards has been replenished with two discrete models at once – Arc Pro A40 and Arc Pro A50. As the name suggests, they are designed for professional use. However, the characteristics are modest, so this most professional application will be limited.

Intel introduced Arc Pro A40 and Arc Pro A50 graphics cards.  But these are not the models that ordinary users and gamers are waiting for.

Both models have 6GB of GDDR6 memory, support real-time ray tracing and AV1 hardware encoding, and feature four Mini DP 1.4 ports. Arc Pro A40 has a peak consumption of 50 W, this card is a single-slot version, Arc Pro A50 is a dual-slot version, and its peak consumption is 75 W. Performance in the first case is 3.5 TFLOPS with single precision, in the second – 4.8 TFLOPS. For comparison, the performance of the old Radeon HD 6970 (it came out at the end of 2010) is 2.7 TFLOPS.

Together with discrete solutions, the Intel Arc Pro A30M mobile GPU is also presented – it is in many ways similar to the Arc Pro A40, only there is less memory (only 4 GB GDDR) and the power consumption level is adjustable – from 35 to 50 watts. The new Intel GPUs will appear in off-the-shelf products later this year.

Japan has developed the worlds fastest quantum processor

Japanese physicists have created a two-qubit quantum processor with a record high speed. This was reported by the press service of the National Institute of Natural Sciences of Japan (National Institute of Natural Sciences – NINS). A group of scientists led by Professor Kenji Omori has created a processor based on Rydberg atoms. These particles play the role of qubits – quantum analogues of ordinary bits. This development was based on atoms of rubidium-87, cooled to near absolute zero and located at a distance of one micron from each other.

Japan has developed the world's fastest quantum processor

The last electron of such an atom is moved a long distance from the nucleus with the help of special pulses of laser radiation – ultrashort, but very powerful. Such pulses transfer neighboring atoms to the Rydberg state, make them interact and participate in the calculation of logical operations. As a result, the processor spends only 6.5 nanoseconds per operation, which is about a hundred times faster than previously achieved on other quantum computers based on cold atoms.

An important factor is the ability of the Japanese development to circumvent some of the limitations that exist for quantum computers. The accuracy of the calculations of quantum processors reduce noise from the external environment and the operating laser. But in this case, one logical operation is performed approximately two orders of magnitude faster than noise occurs in the operation of qubits. In theory, this allows you to ignore their effect on the computer. According to scientists, the new development will lead to the creation of quantum computers capable of performing hundreds of millions of operations per second.

AsRock tested its own Arc A380 graphics card and boasted

AsRock recently introduced its new Challenger ITX graphics card based on the Arc A380 graphics chip. And now, without postponing the matter indefinitely, I made a review on it.

AsRock tested its own Arc A380 graphics card and boasted the results

According to the manufacturer, this is a factory overclocked card with a GPU clock speed of 2250 MHz. However, in real tests it came out. For example, in the Furmark stress test, it reaches 2300 MHz, and in games – 2450 MHz.

Under full load, the fan speed reaches 1683 rpm and the chip temperature is 85°C. The power of the board, according to Furmark, is 54.9 W, which is less than the reference version of the Arc A380, where the TDP is 75 W.

In addition to benchmarks, ASRock has also tested the performance of several games, including popular AAA titles and modern DirectX12 API games. Testing was conducted at 1080p resolution.
