It looks like the AMD Ryzen 8000 processors based on the Zen 5 architecture will be able to make a small revolution in the x86-compatible CPU market. At least, according to recent leaks about the performance of future CPUs.
According to these data, even engineering samples show some incredible level of performance. For example, the 16-core model, which will likely be called the Ryzen 9 8950X, scores around 49,000 in Cinebench R23. In comparison, the Ryzen 9 7950X scores around 38,000 points. This is an impressive 29% increase, and this, we recall, is an engineering sample!
The 12-core model is gaining 36,000 points, that is, the conditional Ryzen 9 8900X will be at the level of the Ryzen 9 7950X. The eight-core model scores 23,000 points, while the six-core model scores 17,000 points.
Interestingly, back in April, former AMD architect (and not only) Jim Keller, who was also involved in the development of the first generation Zen architecture, shared information about about the same performance boost that the Zen 5 architecture would supposedly provide.
If reality even roughly matches these leaks and predictions, Zen 5 will go down in history as the architecture that brought one of the biggest (if not the biggest) performance gains over the previous solution.
The Radeon RX 7800 XT can be made to consume only 200 W of power, and at the same time it will still not lose to the GeForce RTX 4070 in terms of performance
The Radeon RX 7800 XT video card, at its price of $500, performed well against the RTX 4070, which costs $600. However, the latter is much more energy efficient. Tests from the Techtesters channel have shown that, if desired, an AMD card can also be made much more efficient.
It turned out that the consumption of the RX 7800 XT can be lowered to the level of the RTX 4070, that is, about 200 W. Moreover, even in this mode, AMD’s new product is not inferior to its competitor. True, an Nvidia card can also be undervolted, but this was not done in this test.
As for the performance loss of the AMD adapter, Gigabyte’s overclocked RX 7800 XT consumes 40% more power than the version with a reduced power limit, while the former performs only 9% better.
Laptops with Intel Core Ultra processors will cost a pretty penny. Models will start at over $1,500
Intel will release Meteor Lake processors in mid-December. And although it is not yet clear when exactly the first laptops will go on sale, judging by recent data, these very first laptops will be very expensive.
At the last event, Intel showed laptops from both its own brand and Acer models. Apparently, Acer will be one of the first to equip its mobile PCs with new CPUs. And the prices of these mobile PCs are expected to exceed $1,500.
More specifically, prices in the Taiwan market are expected to exceed NT$50,000, which is about $1,560 at current exchange rates. True, this is already taking into account taxes.
The UDN resource also confirms that most laptops with Core Ultra processors will be released in 2024.
Thus, apparently, the Core Ultra models will occupy the upper price segment, while in the middle and lower there will be models from the Raptor Lake Refresh line.
Intel will bombard the market with processors of different generations. Arrow Lake, Lunar Lake, and Panther Lake will be released in 2024
Intel today introduced Meteor Lake mobile processors, which it calls a revolutionary step forward. In addition, Intel spoke about the next generations of its CPUs.
In total, over the next year we will see three: Arrow Lake, Lunar Lake and Panther Lake. Of course, this does not mean that Intel will replace three generations of processors in a year.
Arrow Lake will be available in both desktop and mobile segments. On desktop, they will replace the Raptor Lake Refresh line, which will be released in October. In mobile, apparently, Arrow Lake will coexist with Meteor Lake, a game in the segment of higher-performance solutions. Such CPUs will be produced partly at Intel facilities using the Intel 20A process technology and partly at TSMC facilities using the N3 process technology.
Lunar Lake processors, as it turns out, will be similar to Meteor Lake in that they will be available only in the mobile segment. It is unclear whether this division is temporary or whether Intel will now continue to divide its CPU lines in this way. Lunar Lake will also be released next year. Given that this is technically a replacement for Meteor Lake, perhaps late next year.
Panther Lake will be available in both the mobile and desktop segments, that is, they will replace Arrow Lake. But in this case, it is unclear why they should also be expected in 2024, because the same Arrow Lake in this case will be relevant for less than a year.
