For many, the card raises questions because of the 64-bit bus and 4 GB of memory. At the same time, the first is at least partially offset by the Infinity Cache cache, but the second, as many believe, makes the video card useless even in Full HD. What is in reality?

In reality, as we see, everything is not so bad. In relative terms, the RX 6500 XT performs on average at the level of the GeForce RTX 1650 Super, RX 5500 XT, or RX 580 8GB. The most popular model on Steam, the GTX 1060 6GB, is about 10% behind. The comparison with the RX 580 is very revealing, as the latter has twice the memory and four times the bus. As you can see, these are far from the only factors affecting performance.

Speaking in absolute terms, in modern games at the maximum graphics quality settings, the new product on average provides more than 60 fps. Of course, in some games the figure can exceed 100 fps, but in the same Cyberpunk 2077 we are talking about only 27 fps. Of course, all this applies exclusively to Full HD resolution, for which the RX 6500 XT is designed. As the resolution increases, the card’s capabilities are significantly reduced. And if in WQHD it still remains approximately at the same level relative to competitors, then in 4K UHD it is formally inferior even to the RX 570 4GB, albeit only by 1%. Here it’s just a matter of memory size and bus.

Thus, speaking on average, the RX 6500 XT, despite the amount of memory and a narrow bus, copes with all modern games in Full HD. In most cases, at maximum settings, and only in single projects, it is better to reduce the settings to medium.

Samsung is preparing premium smartwatches Galaxy Watch 5 Pro model

A growing body of data points to Samsung launching the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro smartwatch this year. True, they may be called differently in the end, but this does not change the essence of the matter.

Samsung is preparing premium smartwatches.  Galaxy Watch 5 Pro model will receive a titanium case and sapphire crystal

According to the Ice Universe insider, such a model will differ from the usual one, including a titanium case and sapphire crystal. In addition, we recall that this model will have a much more capacious battery.

As a result, we have at least a more premium and standalone device, but it is not yet clear whether the list of features will be limited to this. The Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will replace the Watch Classic, with the new watch apparently only available in one size.

Ice Universe has provided accurate information about Samsung smartphones and image sensors many times, including recent announcements of new 50MP and 200MP sensors. He was also the first to show accurate images of smartphones with waterfall screens.

AMD will not remain a monopolist in the console market. The next Nintendo Switch will likely use the Nvidia platform again

AMD will not remain a monopolist in the console market

The second-generation Nintendo Switch console, whatever it’s called, looks set to once again be based on Nvidia’s single-chip system.

AMD will not remain a monopolist in the console market.  The next Nintendo Switch will likely use the Nvidia platform again

This conclusion is made by sources based on a new Nvidia vacancy. The company is looking for a tool engineer for game console developers.

Considering that Sony and Microsoft have long opted for AMD solutions, the current Nintendo Switch is based on SoC Tegra, and no other major companies seem to be going to seriously enter the console market, it is most likely that we are talking about the development platforms for the new Nintendo console. True, this may mean that such a prefix will not be released soon.

By the way, the other day Nintendo itself indirectly confirmed that it would continue to use the Nvidia platform in its new console. The company said that it is very important for it to maintain the continuity of generations and implement a smooth transition. And the easiest way to do this is to keep the platform of the same manufacturer.

I must say, while the MagicBook 14 2022 is thin and compact (although the screen bezels could be smaller), it even allows you to play games – and even with ray tracing! The Nvidia GeForce RTX 2050 discrete 3D accelerator is responsible for graphics processing in this model. However, the basic models get by with integrated graphics, and the “middle” version offers a simpler discrete GPU – the GeForce MX 550.

Processors – Intel Core i5-12500H in the base version and Intel Core i7-12650H – in the top one. The amount of LPDDR5 RAM was 16 GB, the amount of SSD – 512 GB.
