Intel to update boxed CPU coolers ahead of 12th Gen Core (Alder Lake) processors

Published

on

It seems that Intel has realized that in order to compete more successfully with AMD in the consumer segment, it needs to offer quality box coolers for its CPUs. AMD now has six of them, including the Wraith Ripper Cooler for top-end Threadripper processors. And they all do a good job with their responsibilities, if we are not talking about significant overclocking. In addition, several have built-in lighting. And now Intel, it seems, is also ready to update its boxed processor coolers – just a month and a half before the announcement of the 12th generation Intel Core processors (Alder Lake).

The photo shows three cooler options – Laminar RH1, RM1 and RS1. The first is for the top models of the Core i9 series, the second is for the CPUs of the Core i7, i5 and i3 series, the third is for the Pentium and Celeron CPUs. The Laminar RH1 and RM1 are even backlit.

It is not yet clear which processors will be equipped with these coolers (for example, not only Core 12, but also Core 11/10 can get them) and when sales start, but this step will allow Intel CPUs to become a little more attractive in the eyes of users. In addition, do not forget that Alder Lake is switching to the new LAG1700 socket, and for some it would be more convenient to buy a CPU with a complete cooler than to look for a third-party solution.

The Core i9-12900K beats AMD’s best processor again. The novelty bypasses Ryzen 9 5950X by more than a quarter

Published

The closer the release of Intel Alder Lake processors is, the more useful tests appear on the web. We’ve already seen an excellent Core i9-12900K score with Cinebench, now it’s CPU-Z.

The benchmark of this software confirms the high performance of the new product. The CPU scored 825 points in single-threaded mode, but unfortunately the result is not visible in multi-threaded mode. It seems that here the Core i9-12900K is close to the opponent.

The latter is the 16-core Ryzen 9 5950X. And in single-threaded mode, it loses, gaining only 648 points. That is, the increase is 27%. Compared to the Core i9-11900K, the gain is also very large – 21%.

Recall that the Core i9-12900K, along with other unlocked processors of the new line, will be released at the end of the year, and the lower CPUs will become available only at the beginning of the next.

Innodisk Delivers First Industrial-Grade PCIe 4.0 Solid State Drives

Published

on

Innodisk has announced the release of PCIe 4.0 industrial-grade solid-state drives. The introduction of 5G networks and artificial intelligence of things (AIoT) increases the requirements for the volume and speed of storage, she said. Increasing the volume to 4 GB and doubling the speed allowed the transition from PCIe 3.0 to PCIe 4.0. The novelties presented by Innodisk, in contrast to similar consumer models, are designed to operate in a wide temperature range – from -40 ° C to 85 ° C.

The drives use 112-layer 3D TLC flash memory. They are TCG OPAL 2.0 compliant, equipped with PCIe Gen4 x4 interface, and support AES-256 encryption and NVMe protocol. One of the notable innovations is Namespace technology, which provides higher read and write efficiency and longer SSD lifespan.

The list of new products includes M.2 2280 4TE (256 GB to 2 TB), M.2 2280 4TG-P (256 GB to 2 TB) and M.2 2280 4TG2-P (128 GB to 4 TB). The manufacturer does not provide prices, speed and resource indicators, limiting himself to the promise that trial samples of drives will be available in October.

EIZO Condor XR1 Card Powered by Dual Nvidia Turing RTX GPUs

Published

on

EIZO Rugged Solutions, which manufactures, among others, ruggedized graphics cards, has introduced a product called the Condor XR1. This is an OpenVPX 6U form factor expansion card for HPC and GPGPU based on Nvidia Turing RTX architecture. There are two types of cards available. One is built on two Nvidia RTX 5000 GPUs, the other is built on two Nvidia RTX3000 GPUs.

With an RTX 5000 GPU (TU104), the accelerator configuration includes 6,150 CUDA cores, 768 Tensor cores, and 96 RT cores. Its performance is estimated at 18.98 TFLOPS on 32-bit floating point operations.

The Condor XR1 supports up to eight DisplayPort ++ video outputs and has dedicated H.264 / H.265 (HEVC) decoders. Each GPU can be individually configured to route to different endpoint configurations, as each PCIe switch also allows paired I / O modules to communicate with the CPU or directly with the GPUs themselves via Nvidia RDMA. The solution is said to be ideal for sensor-intensive applications such as unmanned systems, airborne radars, signal analysis (SIG-INT), electronic warfare (EW), digital signal processing (DSP). It is available in conductive or air cooled versions and supports PCIe Gen 3.0 (16, 8 or 4 lanes). The card is tested according to MIL-STD-810 standards and is offered in both OpenVPX VITA 65 and SOSA configurations.
