No phenomenal iGPU performance boost for the Ryzen 9 7950X3D? Tests from another source did not show them.
The other day, PC Mag resource tested the Ryzen 9 7950X3D processor and found a phenomenal increase in the performance of the integrated graphics core compared to the Ryzen 9 7950X with identical parameters. However, this may have been some kind of mistake, as ComputerBase tests indicate that there is no significant increase.
The resource conducted its tests in benchmarks and games, and almost everywhere the difference is extremely small. Unless in Cyberpunk 2077 it reaches almost 10%. This is a lot, given the identical iGPU parameters in two processors, but PC Mag tests, we recall, showed an increase of three or even four times.
If this was some kind of PC Mag bug, it’s not very clear what it could be. In any case, we need to wait for other tests to put an end to this story.
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.
