Intel introduced six-core models in 2017 as a response to Ryzen. They are members of the Coffee Lake architecture and were the first desktop processors to offer up to 6 cores and 12 threads in the home segment. Later, the company introduced eight-core models that became part of the Coffee Lake Refresh family. The first generations of coffee processors have already been discontinued, so the time has come for the Refresh series.
The company has released an official document outlining immediate plans to phase out Coffee Lake Refresh. So, on December 7, 2020, the program for the removal of products from production began to work, and from June 25, 2021, the processors will be considered completely out of circulation, and supplies to retailers will not be made.
Full list of processors for discontinuation in the table.
However, this only applies to BOX series processors. For OEMs, support and procurement will continue until December 24 next year. This does not affect the processor warranty.
However, Intel has new processors with similar characteristics, and the next generation of Rocket Lake, according to the company, should set the record for single-core performance. At the very least, the answer to Zen3 from competitors should be a must.
Rumor: Nvidia Stops Production of GeForce RTX 3080 GPUs After GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Drops in Price
A steep rise in the value of major cryptocurrencies triggered a cascade of events that resulted in the collapse of prices for new video cards. Many models have fallen in price, including top ones like the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti: with a recommended price of $1,200 (in the US), it is offered by the largest American retailers, Newegg and Amazon, for less than $1,000.
A small price gap between the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and the GeForce RTX 3080 with 12GB of memory has led Nvidia to suspend shipments of GPUs to partners for the latter. So wrote one of the Twitter users familiar with the situation. It is impossible to confirm or refute these words, but in general such a development of events can be considered quite probable.
Up to 8 XE cores and 6 GB of memory: the first information about the Intel Arc Pro A50/A40 graphics cards appeared
The database of the SiSoftware Sandra test package has fresh data on the upcoming Arc A40 Pro and Arc A50 Pro graphics cards. These are graphics accelerators for workstations that are designed for engineering tasks.
The A50 Pro has a full ACM-G11 GPU with 8 Xe cores (128 execution units/1024 FP32 cores), while the A40 Pro is likely to get a stripped-down version of the chip. The clock frequency is 2.45 GHz.
Both cards have 6 GB GDDR6 memory, indicating a 96-bit memory bus. In this regard, both models are similar to the Arc A380 mobile card, which has almost the same configuration.
Thus, the company continues to prepare its entry-level products. When high-performance gaming and professional solutions based on the ACM-G10 GPU will appear, it is not reported. It is also not yet clear whether the Arc A40 Pro and Arc A50 Pro cards will be available in retail or whether they will appear only as part of workstations.
Earlier, Intel introduced its first gaming graphics card for $150.
