Chip maker Qualcomm announced two processors for low-cost smartphones at once – Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 and Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 models. The company said that models based on 4 Gen 1 will appear first in the fourth quarter of this year. And solutions for 6 Gen 1 are expected in the first quarter of 2023.
The specifications are only partially known so far, it is only reported that the younger model operates at a frequency of 2 GHz and outperforms its predecessor by 15% in terms of processor power and 10% in terms of graphics. This processor uses 2 powerful cores and 6 economical ones. We are talking about support for a 108-megapixel camera. There are Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5.2 adapters, as well as 5G at 6 GHz. Millimeter waves are not supported. At the same time, according to the slides, there will be support for AI, as well as gaming capabilities.
The older model is 35% more powerful in terms of CPU and 40% more powerful in terms of GPU. Frequency – 2.2 GHz. She is also credited with supporting a camera with a resolution of up to 200 megapixels. 4 powerful cores and 4 economical ones are already used here. She is credited with having a Snapdragon X62 5G modem that can operate at frequencies below 6 GHz and millimeter wave. In addition, there is support for Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2.
It is not yet known which smartphones will receive the new processors. It is possible that they will appear not only in phones, but also in tablets.
Earlier it was reported that Qualcomm and MediaTek will produce new platforms at the facilities of TSMC, not Samsung.
Nvidia has created a “video card” with 120 GB of memory. Accelerator H100 will receive a new modification
The Nvidia H100 accelerator in the modification with the PCIe interface can have 120 GB of memory.
So far, Nvidia has not announced such a version, and it is not certain that there will be at least some kind of announcement, since in general the H100 model debuted back in March. But the solution hits the market only now and, apparently, by this time the company has prepared a new version.
Initially, we recall that the H100 was presented in versions with PCIe and SMX with a different number of CUDA cores, but with the same amount of HBM2e memory of 80 GB. The new version will differ from the originally announced one only in memory, that is, the novelty has the same 16,896 CUDA cores. True, since this is HBM memory, an increase in volume also leads to an increase in throughput: from 2 to 3 TB / s. The SMX version has a throughput of 3.35 TB/s due to interface features.
The Nvidia H100 is the first Hopper generation solution. This is a line of accelerators specially designed for computing, and there are no gaming analogues for such cards.
Ryzen 9 7950X at 6.5 GHz consumes as much as a non-overclocked Core i9-12900K
The Ryzen 9 7950X processor continues to impress with advances even before it hits the market.
This time the processor showed how energy efficient it can be even with extreme overclocking. So, the Sampson overclocker managed to overclock the CPU to 6.5 GHz for all cores using liquid nitrogen.
And at such a high frequency, the processor consumed only 270 watts. For comparison, the Core i9-12900K requires about the same amount without any overclocking, just under maximum load. The Core i9-13900K, when overclocked to 6.2-6.3 GHz, requires about 400 watts.
With such overclocking, the new AMD scores more than 48,200 points in Cinebench R23, and in Cinebench R20 the result reaches 18,605 points. There is also a result from another source with overclocking to 6.7 GHz and 50,395 points in Cinebench R23.
Recall that the Ryzen 9 7950X will be on sale on September 27th. Intel on the same day will introduce its Raptor Lake processors, but they will not go on sale until October.
Intel is finally ready to release its top-end Arc graphics cards. Reviews due October 5th
It looks like we finally have the exact launch dates for the older Intel Arc graphics cards.
There are reportedly at least two dates for the Arc A770. First, unpackings of the adapter will be published on September 30, and then on October 5, thematic resources will be able to publish reviews as well.
Earlier, Intel itself said that the Arc A750 will be released along with the A770, so, apparently, the indicated dates are also valid for the younger card. But there is no data about Arc A580.
In addition, it is expected that on September 27, the day of the announcement of the Raptor Lake processors, Intel can share new details about the graphics cards. In particular, to finally name the prices, which she promised to make very competitive.
Recall that the top Arc A770 is reportedly capable of competing with the GeForce RTX 3060 and RTX 3060 Ti.
