Intel, is this video card worth waiting for? Arc A580 lit up in the test

Published

Intel released the junior Arc A3xx cards, promised to release the older Arc A7xx very soon, but seemed to have forgotten about the intermediate model Arc A580. But today we have little information about her.

Thanks to CompuBench software, we can now confidently say that this adapter has 384 Xe-Vector cores. That is 24 Xe-Core cores or 3072 FP32 blocks, which are usually listed as blocks in AMD and Nvidia cards.

The software also says that the GPU frequency of this card is 2100 MHz. In the OpenCL test, Arc A580 is 55% faster than Arc A380, but with a threefold difference in the number of execution units, the result looks strange, so it is probably better not to consider it.

When the Arc A580 will be released, we can only guess. According to available data, the card will receive 8 GB of memory and a 128-bit bus.

Ryzen 7000s are very powerful but very hot Finally published

Literally, the ban on publishing reviews of the new Ryzen 7000 processors has just been lifted, so we can get acquainted with such materials.

For evaluation, we took reviews of all four new CPUs from our colleagues from TechPowerUp.

As befits a large review, the authors took a large number of applications for testing. However, if we talk about modern CPUs with a large number of cores, and especially about flagship models, potential buyers should pay attention to those applications that are important for each of them personally.

If we sum up some general results, then everything depends on the specific CPU.

The Ryzen 9 7950X is by far the highest performing non-HEDT consumer processor in the industry. In almost all applications, it shows the best result and somewhere it can lose to some other new product from AMD due to the lack of optimization for a large number of cores. The Ryzen 9 7950X is on average 25% faster than the Ryzen 9 5950X and 15% faster than the Core i9-12900K. However, in some applications, the difference can reach 30-50%.

The 12-core Ryzen 9 7900X is about 6% faster than the Core i9-12900K and 15% faster than the Core i7-12700K. The eight-core Ryzen 7 7700X is 20% faster than its predecessor (Ryzen 7 5800X), while in a number of tasks the new product manages to bypass even the Core i9-12900K, although on average, of course, the latter is faster. As for the popular six-core Ryzen 5 7600X, it is 25% faster than its predecessor and is often able to compete with the Ryzen 9 5900X, which has twice as many cores! On average, the results are certainly not so impressive, but for those who use certain applications, the Ryzen 5 7600X can be almost a miracle.

In games, as always, everything primarily depends on the video card, but in those modes where the influence of the CPU is somehow noticeable, AMD’s new products show themselves perfectly, bypassing even the gaming Ryzen 7 5800X3D.

However, there is also a fly in the ointment. All this huge performance gain was not in vain, and the Ryzen 7000 added a significant amount to power consumption.

Under heavy load, the Ryzen 9 7950X draws around 235W, versus just 118W for the Ryzen 9 5950X. And even the six-core Ryzen 5 7600X consumes 100 watts. True, this is a lot only against the background of the previous generation Ryzen, since the same Core i9-12900K requires more than 250 watts.

At the same time, if we talk about the average consumption in different applications, everything is better here: only 125 W for the Ryzen 9 7950X, which is completely uncritical and still less than the Core i9-12900K.

New AMD processors heat up accordingly. In the same Blender application, the new flagship heats up to 94 degrees, and this is using the powerful Noctua NH-U14S cooler. And the problem is that even the Ryzen 5 7600X heats up to 88 degrees, and the Ryzen 7 7700X does not lag behind the flagship. Again, in games and more gentle programs, the heating is much less: within 70 degrees. And it’s also worth repeating that this is all a lot compared to the Ryzen 5000, because Intel Alder Lake shows no less heat.

Of course, you need to remember that tomorrow Intel will introduce the new Raptor Lake processors, and it is with them that the Ryzen 7000 will compete. which one will compete is not yet clear. And taking into account the preserved technical process, increased frequencies and an increased number of cores, it is likely to heat up and consume new Intel CPUs even more.

Nvidia has created a “video card” with 120 GB of memory. Accelerator H100 will receive a new modification

Nvidia has created a video card with 120 GB of

The Nvidia H100 accelerator in the modification with the PCIe interface can have 120 GB of memory.

Nvidia has created a

So far, Nvidia has not announced such a version, and it is not certain that there will be at least some kind of announcement, since in general the H100 model debuted back in March. But the solution hits the market only now and, apparently, by this time the company has prepared a new version.

Nvidia has created a

Initially, we recall that the H100 was presented in versions with PCIe and SMX with a different number of CUDA cores, but with the same amount of HBM2e memory of 80 GB. The new version will differ from the originally announced one only in memory, that is, the novelty has the same 16,896 CUDA cores. True, since this is HBM memory, an increase in volume also leads to an increase in throughput: from 2 to 3 TB / s. The SMX version has a throughput of 3.35 TB/s due to interface features.

The Nvidia H100 is the first Hopper generation solution. This is a line of accelerators specially designed for computing, and there are no gaming analogues for such cards.

Ryzen 9 7950X at 6.5 GHz consumes as much as a non-overclocked Core i9-12900K

Ryzen 9 7950X at 65 GHz consumes as much as

The Ryzen 9 7950X processor continues to impress with advances even before it hits the market.

Ryzen 9 7950X at 6.5 GHz consumes as much as a non-overclocked Core i9-12900K

This time the processor showed how energy efficient it can be even with extreme overclocking. So, the Sampson overclocker managed to overclock the CPU to 6.5 GHz for all cores using liquid nitrogen.

And at such a high frequency, the processor consumed only 270 watts. For comparison, the Core i9-12900K requires about the same amount without any overclocking, just under maximum load. The Core i9-13900K, when overclocked to 6.2-6.3 GHz, requires about 400 watts.

With such overclocking, the new AMD scores more than 48,200 points in Cinebench R23, and in Cinebench R20 the result reaches 18,605 points. There is also a result from another source with overclocking to 6.7 GHz and 50,395 points in Cinebench R23.

Recall that the Ryzen 9 7950X will be on sale on September 27th. Intel on the same day will introduce its Raptor Lake processors, but they will not go on sale until October.
