Intel won’t have really new desktop processors until 2025? The company has postponed the launch of Arrow Lake until 2025
Intel will once again postpone the launch of a new generation of processors to a later date. According to DigiTimes, the Arrow Lake CPU line will not be released in 2024 as planned, but will appear only in 2025.
More specifically, Intel has delayed placing orders for 3nm wafers from TSMC. It is TSMC, and precisely according to the 3 nm standards, that should have produced iGPU tiles for Arrow Lake for Intel. Recall that iGPUs for Meteor Lake, which supposedly will be released this year, will also be produced by TSMC, but according to 5 nm standards.
Intel will place orders for tiles for Arrow Lake only in the fourth quarter of 2024, so the CPUs themselves will not be able to come out before 2025.
And this raises a number of questions. Intel recently promised to release Meteor Lake this year, despite rumors that their launch will be pushed back to 2024. However, Meteor Lake, according to all available data, will not be available in the desktop segment. Previously, all the rumors and leaks indicated that Meteor Lake would coexist in the market with Arrow Lake, and the latter will just exist in the form of desktop CPUs. However, now it turns out that Meteor Lake and Arrow Lake will share at least a year with a little. And it’s unclear what kind of CPUs Intel will be pushing into the desktop space after Raptor Lake or Raptor Lake Refresh, if any appear this year.
Lenovo Legion Y7000P 2023 gaming laptops introduced. Top version includes Intel Core i7-13700H and GeForce RTX 4060 Laptop
Lenovo introduced the entry-level gaming laptop Legion Y7000P 2023. In fact, it is very similar in terms of parameters to the geekbook – Lenovo GeekPro G5000, but the Y7000P is positioned a little higher.
The Legion Y7000P 2023 is equipped with a 16-inch IPS screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, a frame rate of 165 Hz, and a brightness of 350 cd/m2. and covering 100% of the sRGB color space.
In the base there is an Intrel Core i5-13500H processor and a dGPU Nvidia GeForce RTX 4050 Laptop, and in the top version there is a Core i7-13700H and GeForce RTX 4060 Laptop. The amount of DDR5 RAM is 16 GB (two slots, so the amount of RAM can be increased), SSD – 1 TB.
Also in the configuration are Wi-Fi 6 and Ethernet 2.5 Gigabit adapters, a 140 W charger connected to the USB-C port, and an 80 Wh battery. Pricing hasn’t been announced yet, but this model shouldn’t be much more expensive than the GeekPro G5000.
Also today, Lenovo introduced the Lenovo Legion Y900 tablet (with 3K screen and 12,300 mAh battery) and its most powerful gaming laptop, the Legion Y9000P Extreme Edition.
Is it time to finally retire video cards with 2-3 GB of memory? Halo Infinite no longer runs on these adapters
Video cards with a small amount of memory can sometimes still perform well in modern games, if we are talking about the flagship solutions of yesteryear. However, now there is at least one game where accelerators with less than 4 GB of memory simply will not work. This is Halo Infinite.
A fresh patch for this game now simply does not allow you to run it on a PC with video cards that have less than 4 GB of memory. At the same time, such changes are not mentioned in the description of the patch.
It can be noted that the requirement in the form of at least 4 GB of memory has always been in the game, but usually such requirements are conditional. In particular, Halo Infinite ran on inappropriate 3D maps prior to the patch. For example, there are a lot of videos on the Web where the game is tested, including on a GeForce GTX 1050 with 2 GB of memory, which is quite enough to play even in Full HD with minimal graphics quality settings. But there is a much more powerful GeForce GTX 1060 3GB, which feels quite tolerable even in more demanding games.
There is a possibility that the restriction is just a mistake and will be removed soon. But not at all a fact.
