“Playing on the Intel Arc A380 is like living in a minefield.” Video card reviews show that the device is still very raw

Today, many thematic resources have published reviews of the Intel Arc A380 video card, because today the card is fully launched for sale. True, only in the Chinese market.

We have already met with the performance of new items more than once, so we will touch on this later. Now it is more interesting to read what our colleagues write in the reviews of the novelty.

For example, the author of the channel and website Igor’sLAB marked the adapter Not Approved for only the second time in its history, that is, he does not recommend it for purchase. But here it should be noted that the point is not only in the Arc A380 accelerator itself, but also in its implementation by Gunnir. She, by the way, is still the only one in the world who undertook to release a new Intel product. It is the adapter itself that raises many questions, including too thick thermal pads, excess thermal paste, and so on.

Colleagues at ComputerBase say the Arc A380 is by no means a complete failure, but there are many problems. One of the main ones is drivers.

Playing on the Intel Arc A380 even with the latest driver is like living in the middle of a minefield. There is no other way to describe the past working days with the Arc A380. You don’t even know where to start. In its current state, it is completely incomprehensible how such a large and reputable company as Intel can sell such a product even to one buyer. It’s so bad right now that it’s hard to believe that Intel will be able to bring the quality up to a usable level in the next few months.

The problems lie in very frequent departures. Moreover, the driver can cause problems not only in games, but simply on the Windows desktop. Also, in some games there are constant interruptions, and the activation of Resizable BAR is mandatory, because without it, performance sags even more, and stability deteriorates greatly.

In terms of performance, the Arc A380 is roughly on par with the GeForce GTX 1650 and Radeon RX 6400 on average, but it’s very game specific. Yes, proper overclocking, as we now know, greatly changes the state of affairs, but only a few will do this.

Operating at only 66%, 96-core AMD processors wipe out all competitors. Epyc Genoa test results in Cinebench R23

Operating at only 66 96 core AMD processors wipe out all

The test results of two AMD Epyc server processors of the Genoa generation with 96 cores each have appeared on the Web. According to available data, this is either Epyc 9664 or Epyc 9654.

The CPU was tested in Cinebench R23, and the catch is that this software recognizes a maximum of 256 threads. Two 96-core processors have 384 threads thanks to SMT support. That is, the result obtained in the benchmark reflects only two thirds of the capabilities of the tested pair of CPUs.

Despite this, the processors scored over 110,000 points in multi-threaded mode. In a single thread, the result was 1302 points.

For comparison, one 64-core Threadripper 5995WX gains about the same amount (even a little more), but overclocked to 5.15 GHz using liquid nitrogen. The comparison with the direct competitor Xeon Platinum 8480+ is more interesting. A system with two of these 56-core processors scores only about 68,500 points. True, the source says that there were problems in the operation of these CPUs, so serial processors may show slightly better results. However, in any case, the gap is huge, because even two current-generation 64-core Epyc 7763 score 98,000 points. As a result, it is not yet clear whether the new Intel server processors will be able to somehow withstand the monsters of AMD. In addition, judging by the latest data, Sapphire Rapids-SP will eventually be delayed even more and will not be released until next year.

The specs for almost every Intel desktop processor of the Raptor Lake generation have surfaced online.

Almost all new Intel Core processors will have 14 or more cores.  Specs for most Raptor Lake CPUs revealed

According to this document, we are waiting for 14 CPUs with the number of cores from four to 24, while there will be only one quad-core – Core i3-13100. The next model (Core i5-13400) will have 10 cores, and it will also be the only one, because the Core i5-13500 and a number of older CPUs will already offer 14 cores.

Only the Core i9s will get the new die type, as only they will have a full configuration with eight large and 16 small cores. By the way, the Core i9-13900KS is not in the table, so it really may not be, especially if we recall the recent data on the 350-watt power limit for older Cores.

Overclocked to 6.2 GHz, the Intel Core i9-13900K processor was 60% faster than the current flagship AMD Ryzen 5950X

Overclocked to 62 GHz the Intel Core i9 13900K processor was

The 13th generation Intel Core processors (Raptor Lake) continue to amaze with their overclocking capabilities and, as a result, performance. Another experiment was set up on an engineering sample of the Core i9-13900KF, whose high-performance cores were overclocked to a frequency of 6.2 GHz. The frequency of 5.2 GHz was also the most energy efficient.

Overclocked to 6.2 GHz, the Intel Core i9-13900K processor was 60% faster than the current flagship AMD Ryzen 5950X

In Cinebench R23, this CPU scored 42,790 in the multi-threaded test and 2263 in the single-threaded test – a very good result, especially considering that the tested CPU with lower frequencies – 5.8 GHz (high-performance cores) and 4.7 GHz (energy efficient) . With such overclocking, the Core i9-13900KF turned out to be noticeably faster than both the Core i9-12900K and even more so the Ryzen 9 5950X in a single-threaded test, and in a multi-threaded performance difference is about 50% in favor of the new Intel CPU.

In addition to Cinebench, the overclocked Core i9-13900KF was also tested in CPU-Z. In this test, it outperformed the Ryzen 9 5950X by about 60% in both single and multi-threaded tests. The superiority over the Core i9-12900K in the multi-threaded test is 70%, in the single-threaded test it is already 20%.
