Is a middle-aged eight-core processor enough for modern games? Compare Ryzen 7 2700X vs Ryzen 7 5800X, Core i7-10700K, and Core i7-11700K

Massive eight-core desktop processors have been on the market for several years now. Is one of the first such CPUs enough for modern games?

The source decided to compare the Ryzen 7 2700X and the more recent Ryzen 7 5800X, Core i7-10700K, and Core i7-11700K. All processors have eight cores, but the oldest and newest models are separated by three years. Not much, and games, as we know, primarily require a powerful GPU. However, in reality, the situation is not so straightforward.

The results tell us that in Full HD at maximum graphics quality settings, the old Ryzen lags behind the new one by an average of 23%, and in some games the gap reaches 35-40%. Let’s clarify: this is with the Radeon RX 6900 XT video card. In the case of Intel processors in Full HD, the difference averages 19%.

If we increase the resolution to 1440p, then the Ryzen 7 5800X is only 13% ahead of the old man, and in 4K the difference drops to 4%, which can be neglected.

Thus, it turns out that modern games are still very sensitive to processors, because even three years was enough for a modern CPU to be far ahead of its predecessor. In the case of 4K resolution, which is actively gaining momentum, there is no point in bothering to change the processor to a more modern one, since everything depends on the GPU.

It is also worth remembering a similar test half a year ago with six-core CPUs. There we saw that in the case of less productive video cards of the level of the Radeon RX 5700 XT and below, even in Full HD, there is no point in the new processor either.

AMD is preparing new packaging for Ryzen 7000 processors

An image of a new packaging for AMD Ryzen 7000 processors has appeared on the network. We are talking about expensive models. The source claims that such boxes will receive processors with a price tag of $500. Most likely, these will be Ryzen 9 models, while Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 may receive different packaging.

New packaging

The announcement of new AMD processors is expected on August 29 at a separate event, and Ryzen 7000 will go on sale on September 15. It is assumed that the prices for them will not differ much from those set for the Ryzen 5000 series.

At the same time, the line will include both processors for the new AM5 socket, and, probably, models for AM4. Such processors are credited with supporting DDR4 RAM, while the main line only supports DDR5. The very fact of the release of such processors has not yet been officially confirmed, but rumors on this topic are circulating on the network.

It is possible that the company will release only a few new CPUs for the old socket, which will be positioned separately from the main line.

Intel introduced Arc Pro A40 and Arc Pro A50 graphics

Everyone is waiting for real gaming graphics cards of the Arc line from Intel, but the company is in no hurry. But today, the range of Intel video cards has been replenished with two discrete models at once – Arc Pro A40 and Arc Pro A50. As the name suggests, they are designed for professional use. However, the characteristics are modest, so this most professional application will be limited.

Intel introduced Arc Pro A40 and Arc Pro A50 graphics cards.  But these are not the models that ordinary users and gamers are waiting for.

Both models have 6GB of GDDR6 memory, support real-time ray tracing and AV1 hardware encoding, and feature four Mini DP 1.4 ports. Arc Pro A40 has a peak consumption of 50 W, this card is a single-slot version, Arc Pro A50 is a dual-slot version, and its peak consumption is 75 W. Performance in the first case is 3.5 TFLOPS with single precision, in the second – 4.8 TFLOPS. For comparison, the performance of the old Radeon HD 6970 (it came out at the end of 2010) is 2.7 TFLOPS.

Intel introduced Arc Pro A40 and Arc Pro A50 graphics cards.  But these are not the models that ordinary users and gamers are waiting for.

Together with discrete solutions, the Intel Arc Pro A30M mobile GPU is also presented – it is in many ways similar to the Arc Pro A40, only there is less memory (only 4 GB GDDR) and the power consumption level is adjustable – from 35 to 50 watts. The new Intel GPUs will appear in off-the-shelf products later this year.

Japan has developed the worlds fastest quantum processor

Japanese physicists have created a two-qubit quantum processor with a record high speed. This was reported by the press service of the National Institute of Natural Sciences of Japan (National Institute of Natural Sciences – NINS). A group of scientists led by Professor Kenji Omori has created a processor based on Rydberg atoms. These particles play the role of qubits – quantum analogues of ordinary bits. This development was based on atoms of rubidium-87, cooled to near absolute zero and located at a distance of one micron from each other.

The last electron of such an atom is moved a long distance from the nucleus with the help of special pulses of laser radiation – ultrashort, but very powerful. Such pulses transfer neighboring atoms to the Rydberg state, make them interact and participate in the calculation of logical operations. As a result, the processor spends only 6.5 nanoseconds per operation, which is about a hundred times faster than previously achieved on other quantum computers based on cold atoms.

An important factor is the ability of the Japanese development to circumvent some of the limitations that exist for quantum computers. The accuracy of the calculations of quantum processors reduce noise from the external environment and the operating laser. But in this case, one logical operation is performed approximately two orders of magnitude faster than noise occurs in the operation of qubits. In theory, this allows you to ignore their effect on the computer. According to scientists, the new development will lead to the creation of quantum computers capable of performing hundreds of millions of operations per second.
