Despite the fact that Tiger Lake processors entered the market in large quantities not so long ago, Intel has already prepared their updated versions. We learned about the Tiger Lake Refresh line a couple of months ago, and now they are quietly registered in a number of laptops.
MSI Summit E16 Flip Evo is already available in configurations with a Core i5-1155G7 or Core i7-1195G7 CPU. In the first case, the price will be $ 1,500, in the second you will have to pay $ 1,700, and these are not gaming models and they are deprived of discrete video cards.
But we are now more interested in the CPU. For the Core i7-1195G7, the website lists frequencies of 2.9-5.0 GHz, and the Core i5-1155G7 is content with frequencies of 2.5-4.5 GHz. For comparison, the Core i7-1185G7 runs at 3.0-4.8 GHz, while the Core i5-1145G7 runs at 2.6-4.4 GHz. In both cases, we are talking about four cores. That is, the gain is very modest, and the base frequencies have dropped altogether. True, the Core i5-1155G7 graphics core now contains 96 computational units versus 80 in its predecessor. But Intel now has a modern mobile processor with a frequency of up to 5 GHz and a TDP of 12 to 28 watts.
Lenovo has also released the Air 14 and Air 15 models with the Core i5-1155G7.
Not as thick as new Nvidia graphics cards. Non-Reference XFX RX 7900 XT Merc 310 Image Revealed
XFX will offer non-reference 3D cards of the Radeon RX 7000 line. Images of the RX 7900 XT Merc 310 model have already appeared on the Web, but we can safely assume that there will also be a similar-looking RX 7900 XTX Merc 310.
The card is made in the usual XFX design. It is very long, but not the thickest by modern standards. It will probably take up less than three expansion slots.
You can also highlight three power connectors (8 + 8 + 8) and the absence of a USB-C port, which is available on new generation AMD reference adapters.
Recall that the RX 7900 will be launched on December 13th. On the same day, reviews of new AMD products will be published. If the new 3D cards prove to be very successful for their prices, Nvidia can reduce the price of the GeForce RTX 4080, because it is 20% more expensive than the top RX 7900 XTX.
Intel graphics cards are drastically faster in some older games. Intel has worked on support for DirectX 9
Intel Arc graphics cards, among other things, have rather mediocre performance in older games. But today the company has released a fresh driver that significantly changes the situation, although not in all games.
The company has worked on optimization for some specific games, adding native support for DirectX 9. In particular, it is important to note Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, in which the performance of Arc adapters increased by almost 80%. The company has also worked on the 1% percentile, increasing the rate by up to 2.3 times, which should make the gameplay smoother.
Not all old games have received an impressive performance boost, but Intel can still be commended for continuing to work on its accelerators.
The GeForce RTX 4080 12GB is back. First GeForce RTX 4070 Ti unveiled
Rumors that the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB video card, canceled right before the release, will return under the name GeForce RTX 4070 Ti have been fully confirmed. Colorful has completely declassified the RTX 4070 Ti BattleAx Deluxe 3D card, and its specs are exactly the same as those of the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB.
Although the cooler is different from the cooler that Nvidia equips its video cards with, the Colorful RTX 4070 Ti BattleAx Deluxe is the reference model in everything else. It is built on the AD104 GPU and has 12 GB of GDDR6X memory with a frequency of 21 GHz. The base frequency of the GPU is 2310 MHz.
There is only one connector for connecting additional power – a 16-pin one, to which GeForce RTX 4090 users have a lot of complaints. However, the consumption of the RTX 4070 Ti is significantly lower, so it is hardly worth worrying about the melting of the connectors in this case. Colorful doesn’t specify the number of CUDA cores, but it should be 7680, which is exactly what Nvidia claimed for the RTX 4080 12 GB.
According to preliminary data, sales of the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti will start on January 5, immediately after the formal official premiere on January 3.
