Samsung is preparing DDR6-12800 RAM, as well as GDDR6 + and GDDR7 memory for next generation video cards

Samsung spoke about the work on the next generation of RAM, as well as the development of memory for the next generation video cards. And in fact, and in another case, speeds and bandwidth will increase. True, new items will not be released soon.

DDR5 RAM is basically just hitting the market, but Samsung is already working on DDR6. Its speed will be 12 800 Mbit / s, as regulated by the JEDEC standard. However, this is not taking into account overclocking, and taking into account its overclocking, DDR6 modules will be able to demonstrate the speed of 17,000 Mb / s. Moreover, at the regulated speed of 6400 Mbps and overclocking to 8500 Mbps, some DDR5 modules actually overclock up to 12,000 Mbps, so DDR6 can easily obey the speed of 20,000 Mbps.

DDR5 just hit the market, before that DDR4 lasted six years. If DDR5 repeats the path of its predecessor, then the appearance of DDR6 on sale should not be expected until 2026.

Samsung is also working on GDDR6 + memory, which will replace the GDDR6 chips found in the vast majority of modern graphics cards. At the moment, only Micron has surpassed the 21 Gbps speed threshold with its GDDR6X chips, but GDDR6 + will be even faster – up to 24 Gbps. This will allow video cards with a 320-bit memory bus to provide memory bandwidth of more than 1 TB / s, and the memory bandwidth of models with a 256-bit bus will reach 768 GB / s.

GDDR6 + will be replaced by GDDR7 at speeds up to 32 Gbps. This will provide 256-bit bus GPUs with 1 TB / s memory bandwidth, and 1.5 TB / s for 384-bit bus models. True, video cards with GDDR7 will appear hardly before DDR6 goes on sale.

Finally, Samsung has confirmed plans to start mass production of HBM3 memory in the second quarter of next year. This memory will be used in graphics accelerators and processors for data centers

Up to 8 XE cores and 6 GB of memory

The database of the SiSoftware Sandra test package has fresh data on the upcoming Arc A40 Pro and Arc A50 Pro graphics cards. These are graphics accelerators for workstations that are designed for engineering tasks.

Up to 8 XE cores and 6 GB of memory

The A50 Pro has a full ACM-G11 GPU with 8 Xe cores (128 execution units/1024 FP32 cores), while the A40 Pro is likely to get a stripped-down version of the chip. The clock frequency is 2.45 GHz.

Both cards have 6 GB GDDR6 memory, indicating a 96-bit memory bus. In this regard, both models are similar to the Arc A380 mobile card, which has almost the same configuration.

Thus, the company continues to prepare its entry-level products. When high-performance gaming and professional solutions based on the ACM-G10 GPU will appear, it is not reported. It is also not yet clear whether the Arc A40 Pro and Arc A50 Pro cards will be available in retail or whether they will appear only as part of workstations.

Earlier, Intel introduced its first gaming graphics card for $150.

Named the likely date of the announcement of the mobile

Qualcomm has updated its 2022 product launch roadmap. And there, among other things, they indicated the likely date for the announcement of the flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. It is expected to be shown on the first day of the Snapdragon Summit event, which will be held from November 14 to 17.

Named the likely date of the announcement of the mobile

Qualcomm also announced the Snapdragon X70 5G modem that will be included with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. It is credited with download speeds of up to 10 Gbps, as well as new advanced features for working in fifth-generation networks.

The processor (SM8550) will be manufactured using TSMC’s 4nm process. It will use a three-cluster layout. The composition is expected to include one super-powerful Cortex X3 core, two productive Cortex-A720 and A710, as well as three energy-efficient Cortex-A510. An Adreno740 graphics accelerator is also expected.

It is assumed that the first smartphone based on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor will be Xiaomi 13, its presentation is expected before the end of 2022.

Are the recommended prices for modern video cards too high? Calculated how adapters are priced based on performance

Are the recommended prices for modern video cards too high

Current generation video cards have been heavily overpriced almost all the time due to scarcity and demand from miners. Now the prices are getting back to normal, but how normal are the prices that are recommended? The source decided to evaluate how fair these prices are in terms of performance.

The source took the GeForce RTX 3070 as a conditional standard, which, according to our colleagues, is fairly priced if we take 4K resolution.

As you can see, there is an even more profitable graphics card – GeForce RTX 3060 Ti. That is, it offers more than its price of $400. As for the rest of Nvidia’s cards, most of them have not gone far from the standard, offering 90-94% price match. But all high cards are heavily overvalued. The same GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, according to such calculations, should cost only $ 814, and not $ 2,000 at all.

As far as AMD cards are concerned, only the Radeon RX 6800 and 6800 XT can be distinguished here, which are very close to 100%. Also, the Radeon RX 6700 XT has a rate of 92%. The rest of the cards are significantly more overpriced, although no model falls short of the RTX 3090 Ti in this indicator, simply because even the RX 6950 XT is almost half the price.

It is worth mentioning separately that the source only evaluated performance in games, so all calculations are rather arbitrary. They do not take into account the non-gaming capabilities of video cards, the same huge amount of memory in top GeForces, the complexity of GPU and PCB production, and so on.
