By the big sale 618, which started in China, not only TVs, smartphones, laptops and tablets fell in price, but also accessories. Particularly processors. So, for example, the cost of the boxed version of the 6-core hit Ryzen 5 5600X has dropped to its lowest level ever – to 1,000 yuan ($150). At the same time, the price of the CPU at the start of sales was 2200 yuan – $ 330 at the current exchange rate.

The Ryzen 5 5600X is actively competing for the consumer with the latest 6-core Core i5-12400F, and it has also fallen significantly in China: at the start of sales, the Core i5-12400F was offered for 1500 yuan or $ 225, now it can be purchased for 1060 yuan ($ 160 ). It turns out that now, taking into account the discount, the cost of the Core i5-12400F in China is lower than that of the same processor in the US when purchasing a wholesale batch (at least, judging by the official Intel Ark database). It is important to note that in the case of the Intel CPU, we are talking about a boxed version with a cooler in the kit.

Core i5-12400F differs from the older models of the Alder Lake line in that all of its cores are large. Therefore, there is no discrepancy between the number of cores and threads: there are 6 and 12 of them. The maximum frequency in Turbo mode is 4.4 GHz, the L2 and L3 cache sizes are 7.5 MB and 18 MB, respectively. The characteristics of the Ryzen 5 5600X are well known to everyone, since the CPU was released a long time ago – in November 2020. It is also capable of performing 12 threads, the frequency varies between 3.7-4.6 GHz.

AMD is asking 6500 for its most powerful processor yet

AMD has finally revealed the official prices for the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 processors. Recall that they are now available as part of ready-made workstations, but later this year they will also go to retail.

AMD is asking $6,500 for its most powerful processor yet.  Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 CPU Pricing Revealed

So, the prices for the CPU are as follows:

  • Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX – $6,500
  • Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5975WX – $3,300
  • Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5965WX – $2400

Thus, new items are significantly more expensive than their predecessors. For example, the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3995WX started at $5,490, while the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3975WX was $2,750. There was no 24-core CPU in the previous line, so it will not work to compare prices here.

Also in the new line there are more models with 16 and 12 cores, but their prices have not yet been named.

Recall that the Ryzen Threadripper 5000 line is represented exclusively by Pro models. There will be no regular versions, but instead, the Pro models will go to retail and anyone can buy them.

AMDs revenue will be hit hard by the success of

Analysts at Morgan Stanley believe that AMD’s revenue from the sale of desktop processors will fall by a considerable 26% by the end of the year.

AMD's revenue will be hit hard by the success of Intel's new processors.  Ryzen desktop CPU sales to fall 26% year-on-year

There are several reasons for this. First, the success of competing Intel Alder Lake processors. Secondly, and directly related to the first point, AMD’s lack of new desktop processors in 2022. The current Ryzen 5000s have been out for over a year and a half, and while they compete quite well with Intel’s new products, AMD still needs to cut prices. Thirdly, the market as a whole is also to blame, in which there is a drop in demand.

In the second half of the year, AMD will release completely new Ryzen 7000 CPUs, but for most of the year AMD has to make do with old processors, so the new ones simply do not have time to offset the drop in sales as a whole for the year. However, already in 2023, analysts expect AMD’s revenue to decline by only 2%.

At the same time, we can recall that AMD continues to increase its share in the processor market, that is, its sales are generally growing.

New Intel video driver gets support for Arc A770M and

Intel has released new beta drivers for Intel Arc Alchemist Discrete Desktop and Mobile GPUs and 12th Gen Intel Xe-LP Integrated Graphics. One of the innovations there was support for mid-range and high-end A770M and A550M gaming graphics cards, which may indicate their imminent appearance on the market.

In addition, Intel has made it possible to disable built-in performance optimizations for applications. At the moment, the drivers are optimized for the 3DMark Timespy and Port Royale test applications, so the video cards show their power well in them. However, for the same reason, these data are not included in the overall statistics of the UL Benchmarks organization.

There is also support for Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, F1 2022 and Arcadegeddon as part of the Game On program. And in some games, bugs have been fixed. The list of projects with fixes looks like this:

  • Metro Exodus: Enhanced Edition (DX12);
  • Horizon Zero Dawn (DX12);
  • F1 2020 (DX12);
  • Crossfire (DX9);
  • Euro Truck Simulator 2 (DX11);
  • The Sims 4 (DX9);
  • Ghostwire: Tokyo (DX12).

Earlier it became known that a discrete Intel graphics card can also be “registered” in the Ayaneo Next II portable console. True, that will most likely be Arc A350M or A370M.
