Intel will release two discrete graphics cards in early 2022. One will compete with the GeForce GTX 1650 Super, the second – with the GeForce RTX 3070 and Radeon RX 6700 XT

A few days ago, an insider said that Intel is considering the GeForce RTX 3070 and Radeon RX 6700 XT as competitors to its DG2 discrete graphics card (of the Alchemist family). The slide provided by the source now confirms this data, but also reveals details on TDP, pricing and the second DG2 graphics card, which will be two notches down.

As you can see, Intel is preparing two variants of DG2 for desktop computers. The TDP of the top version will be 175-225 W, and it is it that is recorded in the competitors of the GeForce RTX 3070 (as well as the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti) and the Radeon RX 6700 XT. Moreover, Intel expects that the top-end DG2 will also compete with the Radeon RX 6600 XT and the possible Radeon RX 6500 XT. Accordingly, the price niche of this model is emerging: the cost of the top version of the DG2 will range from $ 330 to $ 500. And most likely closer to the upper border. But this is the price recommended by the manufacturer, and in order to get the real market price in the current deficit, it can be safely multiplied by at least one and a half.

The second variant of the DG2, entry-level or basic, features a TDP of 75W. Intel believes that it will be able to compete on an equal footing with the 100-watt GeForce GTX 1650 Super. This model is in the price range from $ 100 to $ 200, but in this case, the cost of the new item is likely to be closer to the upper limit.

Intel’s Arc series graphics are due out in the first quarter of 2022. They are built on the Xe-HPG (Alchemist) architecture and will be manufactured in the N6 process by TSMC.

Will it be better than the GeForce RTX 3050? Intel unveils Arc A750 graphics card for $290

Will it be better than the GeForce RTX 3050 Intel

For some reason, Intel waited a couple of days and introduced another video card.

Will it be better than the GeForce RTX 3050?  Intel unveils Arc A750 graphics card for $290

The Arc A750 will go on sale on October 12, just like the Arc A770. Technically, this is a pre-flagship solution. Instead of 32 Xe cores, the new products have 28 of them, that is, 3584 FP32 blocks. The adapter also has 8 GB of GDDR6 memory with a frequency of 16 GHz, a 256-bit bus and a TDP of 225 watts. That is, the novelty as a whole is very similar to the A770.

And the price is close. If for the younger Arc A770 they ask for $ 330, then the A750 is priced at $ 290. Thus, the card is 12% cheaper with a 12% lower number of computing units.

Intel also clarified the Arc A770. Contrary to previous reports, the 8GB version will cost $330, while the 16GB version will cost $350. More precisely, for this money, a Limited Edition reference card will be sold, which will only be available with 16 GB.

Intel itself says that the Arc A750 is 53% superior to the GeForce RTX 3060 in terms of price and performance, but at one time Intel said something similar about the Arc A380, but in the end it turned out that there are nuances. In addition, here the company mentions that they are charging an RTX 3060 with a price of $418, which is allegedly the average price of this card on the NewEgg network on September 22. However, there is an RTX 3060 on the same network for $370-$400, so the Intel comparison should be treated with caution.

As for direct price competitors for the A750, according to the same NewEgg network, these are the GeForce RTX 3050 and Radeon RX 6600.

Ryzen 7000 can be made much colder but its risky

The Ryzen 7000 processors proved to be very productive, but also very hot. Even with liquid cooling systems, temperatures cannot be called low. But there is a way out, even if it is not suitable for everyone.

Ryzen 7000 can be made much colder, but it's risky.  Processor needs to be scalped

The well-known overclocker Der8auer decided to check how much the situation would improve if the cover was removed from the Ryzen 9 7900X. It turned out that this is a very effective way.

When using liquid CO and overclocking to 5.5 GHz on all cores, the temperature was only 70 degrees versus 90 degrees for a conventional CPU with less overclocking. Unfortunately, there are no results without overclocking, but the temperatures will obviously be even lower, that is, already quite within the usual values ​​for most modern processors.

Der8auer used a prototype tool to remove the cover, but a production model should be available later. Of course, this solution is not suitable for everyone, because, firstly, it is risky, and secondly, it deprives the owner of the processor warranty. However, this is still an effective option and it must be borne in mind.

Ryzen Threadripper 7000 processors have been spotted online for the first time. An unknown 64-core model has found its way into the [email protected] database, and so far we only know about the number of cores and architecture of Zen 4.

The software itself indicates 128 in the “number of processors” column, but in fact it is about the number of threads.

If the 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X turned out to be incredibly powerful, then how will the 64-core Threadripper be?  First Ryzen Threadripper 7000 spotted online

Ryzen Threadripper has always been as close as possible to Epyc server CPUs and previously always matched them in terms of the maximum number of cores. However, we know that 96-core Epyc Genoa CPUs are waiting for us this year, but it’s not a fact that the older Ryzen Threadripper 7000 will also receive 96 cores.

That being said, even 64-core Zen 4 should offer phenomenal performance for the class, given what the 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X is capable of.
