Is the title of consumer processor king going to Intel CPUs again? The next tests of the Core i9-12900K show its capabilities

In less than two weeks, Intel will finally unveil Alder Lake processors led by the Core i9-12900K. Multiple leaks suggest it could become the most powerful CPU in the mainstream consumer segment, displacing the Ryzen 9 5950X. And today we can be convinced of this once again thanks to new tests.

For example, a review of the new Radeon RX 6600 video card appeared on the Web, where the unannounced Core i9-12900K was used. Apparently, it was installed in the ASRock Z690 Steel Legend motherboard and worked with DDR4-3866 memory.

As a result, the CPU showed very high performance relative to any existing processor. Of course, 3DMark is not the best way to benchmark CPUs, but this result only confirms the previous ones. Separately, it is worth noting that the difference between the Core i9-12900K and the best Core i9-10900K in this test (so far the best available) is almost 28%. At the same time, in this particular selection, the difference between the best (Core i9-10900K) and the worst (Ryzen 7 5800X) available is limited to only 15%. That is, the increase in the Core i9-12900K by the standards of the test is huge.

There is also a test in the game. This is Forza Horizon 4 in Full HD. Intel’s new product showed 193 fps, and the Ryzen 9 5950X – 189 fps. Firstly, this is a negligible difference, and secondly, in the first case, Windows 11 was used, and in the second – Windows 10, so it is a little incorrect to compare the results directly. There are also results in Rainbow Six Siege (252 fps) and in Shadow of The Tomb Raider (112 fps), but there is nothing to compare with.

So far, it looks like the Core i9-12900K will be able to take away the title of consumer processor king from the Ryzen 9 5950X, at least for a while. We already know that AMD’s new products will be released only early next year.

Top 10 SSD manufacturers cut shipments by 15% in 2020, according to TrendForce

Published

on

A little more than two months remain until the end of 2021, and TrendForce experts have just analyzed the situation with the supply of SSD modules in 2020. They concluded that the COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the supply of these products. Affected by the disruption of production and logistics processes, which began in the second quarter, when governments around the world began to impose restrictions, in their opinion, necessary to combat the pandemic. As a result, the supply of SSDs to the channel (retail sales) amounted to 111.5 million units, which is 15% less than in 2019. As for the market leaders, the top three remained unchanged: Kingston, Adata and Kimtigo.

Analysts clarify that when looking at the overall solid-state drive market, NAND flash vendors, led by Samsung, accounted for about 35% of total shipments in 2020, with solid-state drive module makers accounting for the remaining 65%. The top ten module manufacturers provide 71% of SSD shipments per channel. Their shares are shown in the press release published by TrendForce in the form of a table:

No, the Apple M1 Max SoC is not capable of competing with the GeForce RTX 2080, but the performance is very high. There were tests of the new MacBook Pro in games

The GPU performance in the Apple M1 Max SoC exceeds 10 TFLOPS, which can be compared with the PS5 or GeForce RTX 2080. But the TFLOPS figure is not directly related to the performance in games. And now we have the opportunity to assess what Apple’s solution is capable of in games.

And it is really capable of a lot. In Tomb Rider, the top-end Apple platform performs at the level of the mobile GeForce RTX 3060. Yes, we are talking about the 70-watt version, that is, almost the slowest. Recall that the RTX 3060 for laptops has a power limit ranging from 60 to 115 watts.

However, we are still talking about a very productive mobile video card of the most modern generation. Yes, you need to wait for tests in more games to put together a more complete picture, but you can state the very high performance of Apple’s solution right now. M1 Pro, by the way, also looks decent. This is roughly the level of mobile GeForce RTX 3050 Ti or RTX 3050.

Of course, the MacBook Pro is not bought for games at all, since the situation with games on macOS is not easy. However, this does not prevent us from evaluating the new Apple SoCs simply in terms of their capabilities.
