American retailers have significantly reduced the cost of Ryzen 5000 processors for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but the discount season did not end there: the local company Micro Center once again lowered the cost of Ryzen 5000 – CPUs fell to record levels.
So, if on Black Friday the hit 6-core Ryzen 5 5600X cost $ 280, now you can actually buy it for only $ 250. Other members of the family also fell in price. So, for example, the Ryzen 5 5600G is offered for $ 220, the cost of the eight-core Ryzen 7 5700G dropped by $ 80 to $ 280. Ryzen 7 5800X costs 330 dollars in the US, Ryzen 9 5900X – 470 dollars, but the price of the flagship Ryzen 9 5950X remained at the same discount level – 700 dollars.
Despite the fact that the Ryzen 5000 is still more expensive than Intel’s Alder Lake counterparts, the competition in the segment has once again intensified. Firstly, the Ryzen 5000 can be installed in a cheap motherboard based on the B550 chipset, and secondly, they work with inexpensive DDR4 memory.
The top Intel Arc Alchemist graphics card on the DG2-512EU GPU turned out to be faster than the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti in the benchmark
In the SiSoftware Sandra database, Intel’s top 3D accelerator of the Arc Alchemist line based on the DG2-512EU graphics processor was noted. Earlier we already wrote that Intel saw this model as a competitor to the Radeon RX 6700 XT and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070, but judging by the benchmark test, the most powerful new-generation Intel graphics card turned out to be faster than the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti.
The test result of the Intel 3D card is 9017 Mpix/s. For comparison, the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti has 8369.51 Mpix/s, the Radeon RX 6700 XT has 7910.91 Mpix/s. But the Radeon RX 6800 with a score of 10607.29 Mpix/s is unattainable. Interestingly, the result of the base video card of the Alchemist line, Arc A380 on GPU DG2-128EU, is 2956.10 Mpix/s. That is, its productivity is exactly three times less than that of its older sister.
According to SiSoftware Sandra, Intel’s top-end Arc Alchemist 4096 graphics card has up to 2.1 GHz stream processors, 4 MB L2 cache, and 16 GB GDDR6 memory. The memory bus is 256-bit.
According to the latest rumors, discrete Intel Arc Alchemist GPUs will be released before the end of the current quarter, but these will be mobile versions. And discrete solutions will go on sale in the second quarter.
