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.

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.
