The official specifications of the Intel Arc A380 video card have appeared on the network. Judging by them, the graphics chip is made according to the TSMC N6 process technology. The chip is equipped with 1024 FP32 cores (each ??Xe core has 128 FP32 cores) and 6 GB of GDDR6 memory with a clock speed of 16 Gb / s. The data bus is 96 bits, which gives an output bandwidth of 192 GB / s.

The heat pack of the card is in the range from 75 W to 87 W, and the clock frequency, respectively, in the range from 2 GHz to 2.35 GHz. At the same time, Intel also allows the option “above 87 W”, which means that overclocking is acceptable and higher than up to 2.35 GHz. In terms of performance, the Intel Arc A380 GPU delivers between 4 and 4.8 TFLOPs. Combined with XeSS scaling technology, this is enough for 1080p gaming.

At the same time, the first gaming tests from enthusiasts showed a significant lag behind the card in games from AMD RX 6400 and Nvidia GTX 1650. However, official tests give a slightly different picture. Judging by them, the Intel Arc A380 outperforms the RX 6400 in Total War: Troy, Naraka Bladepoint, The Witcher 3 and F1 2021.

In synthetic benchmarks, the results are even better. There, the Intel Arc A380 outperforms even the RX 6500 XT. Judging by everything, the problems of the card are caused by the drivers.

The GeForce RTX 5090 will not repeat the fate of

Back in July, we learned that Nvidia was working on a replacement for the fire-hazardous 12VHPWR connector. And now the first tests of the 12V-2×6 connector have appeared on the Internet, which should replace the 12VHPWR.

The GeForce RTX 5090 will not repeat the fate of the fire-hazardous RTX 4090. Tests of the 12V-2x6 power connector showed that it works even when connected incompletely

The authors of the HardwareBusters channel visited the laboratory of Linewell, which produces power cables, including for video card manufacturers.

Linewell tested the cable with the new connector, and tested it in a format that simulated the most common cause of 12VHPWR melting. At first, Linewell specialists tested it in normal mode for almost an hour, and the connector only heated up to 46.5 degrees. Then the cable was not connected completely, which usually leads to melting, and a power of more than 640 W was applied to it, that is, exceeding the established limit of 600 W. The connector passed the test, heating up to only 41 degrees.

Intel wants a “five-year plan” in a year? Next year the company will have three lines of desktop processors at once, as Meteor Lake-S will still be released

Intel wants a five year plan in a year Next year

Intel seems to have decided to exceed the plan not only in terms of technical processes, but also in terms of CPU lines. It turns out that Meteor Lake-S desktop processors will still be released.

Intel wants a “five-year plan” in a year?  Next year the company will have three lines of desktop processors at once, as Meteor Lake-S will still be released

Michelle Johnston Holthaus, Intel executive vice president and general manager of the client computing group, spoke about this. The PC World journalist, apparently not expecting an affirmative answer to his question regarding the fate of Meteor Lake-S, even asked again, and again received an affirmative answer.

So, tabletop Meteor Lake will still be released, and will be released next year. But now it’s not very clear how Intel is going to launch three lines at once within one year. Let us remind you that Raptor Lake Refresh will be released in October, and Arrow Lake is also expected next year. And if previously it was believed that the latter would simply replace the former, now another line is being added to them.

Perhaps Meteor Lake and Arrow Lake will coexist in the same way as in the mobile segment: Intel said that the former will occupy the mid-price segment, and the latter will be available in the upper price segment. And if these lines are released on desktop at the end of 2024, then they will together replace Raptor Lake Refresh. However, such a division will still be unusual, and Intel itself promised to release ARROW Lake much earlier than at the end of next year.

The Kirin 9000s platform continues to bring surprises, although smartphones based on it have been on sale for some time.

The Huawei Kirin 9000s platform is truly unique.  It has a 12-core processor, although it's far from record-breaking performance.

After the latest Huawei flagships received HarmonyOS 4.0.0.116, Geekbench software began to define the characteristics of the new SoC differently. If earlier it was seen as an eight-core solution, now the number of processor cores is indicated as 12.

The Huawei Kirin 9000s platform is truly unique.  It has a 12-core processor, although it's far from record-breaking performance.

It’s worth remembering here that AnTuTu initially determined that the platform had exactly 12 cores, however, including two Cortex-A34.

Geekbench, well, indicates the types of cores, but talks about three clusters: four cores with a frequency of 1.53 GHz, two with a frequency of 2.62 GHz and six with a frequency of 2.15 GHz. This information is confirmed by screenshots from the mobile version of the benchmark.

We have not yet seen mobile SoCs with 12-core CPUs. At the same time, the performance of the Kirin 9000s, despite this configuration, is far from flagship by 2023 standards, that is, the cores themselves are not the most powerful.
