Soon, Intel and AMD processors can be compared not only by the number of cores and frequency, but also by AI blocks. Intel Reveals Meteor Lake CPU Details
Intel once again decided to talk about how unusual the upcoming Meteor Lake processors, expected towards the end of the year, will be.
In particular, Intel recalled that Meteor Lake will have a VPU (Versatile Processing Unit) for working with AI, but now the company has revealed more details. Using the unique disaggregated architecture of Meteor Lake processors, Intel and Microsoft will provide users with new AI-powered features, including new multimedia features such as automatic reframing and scene edit detection in Adobe Premiere Pro, as well as more efficient machine education. Recall that the Ryzen 7040 processors already have an AI block, but so far there is no mass implementation of the use of such a module. Perhaps, in the case of new Intel CPUs, cooperation with Microsoft on this issue will help to implement something much faster.
Actually, now Intel itself highlights several more areas where the VPU unit can become useful:
- ONNX Runtime support via OpenVino-EP and DirectML-EP
- More efficient machine learning based on WinML/DirectML to accelerate neural VPUs and GPUs
- Microsoft Studio effects including background blur, automatic eye framing, voice focus
Intel also notes that it is going to ship millions of Meteor Lake CPUs to the market over the next year, but still does not say when to expect the first products or even an announcement.
Nvidia has figured out how to overclock monitors to over 1000 and even over 2000 Hz. ULMB 2 technology introduced
Nvidia has introduced G-Sync Ultra Low Motion Blur 2 (ULMB 2) technology, which should make the image on the monitor even clearer.
Nvidia itself speaks of an effective motion clarity frequency of over 1000 Hz, and this should not be confused with frame rate, since there are simply no panels on the market with such a frame rate.
Technologically, ULMB 2 is about the same as the original ULMB technology, which appeared in 2015 and, due to the shortcomings of monitors of those times, did not gain popularity. We are talking about backlight strobing technology, which means that in ULMB 2 the monitor backlight turns on only when each pixel has the correct color value. The idea is to not show the pixel transition, but only show them when their color is accurate. To solve the problems that come with this approach, Nvidia figured out how to control the response time depending on where the vertical base is. Nvidia calls this “vertical dependent overdrive”.
As a result, the very value of effective motion clarity according to the Nvidia formula turns out to be four times higher than the actual frame rate of the monitor. That is, in the case of a panel with a frame rate of 360 Hz, the Nvidia indicator will be 1440 Hz. The company claims that such a monitor will offer the same smoothness and clarity as a non-ULMB 2 monitor with a true 1440Hz frame rate.
The technology is not only presented, but already available. At least two monitor models already support it: Acer Predator XB273U F and Asus ROG Swift 360Hz PG27AQN. They will soon be joined by the 540Hz Asus ROG Swift Pro PG248QP and AOC Agon AG276QSG G-Sync. In the case of the first, it turns out that the effective frequency indicator due to ULMB 2 will be 2160 Hz.
HKC Huike’s first 500Hz monitor introduced
HKC Huike has announced its first QHD display capable of up to 500Hz refresh rate.
The photo shows a PC game reaching 499 frames per second. According to HKC Huike, the display uses HMO (High Mobility Oxide) panel technology and supports variable refresh rates from 40Hz to 500Hz.
The display is equipped with a 27-inch screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. It also offers a wide viewing angle, supports 1500:1 contrast ratio, 1ms GTG response time, and provides 100 percent DCI-P3 and 100% sRGB color space coverage.
Release date and prices have not yet been announced.
31.5-inch 4K screen, Core i9-13900H and GeForce RTX 4050 Laptop in an ultra-slim design. Lenovo Yoga Air 32 is a unique all-in-one PC
Lenovo has introduced a rather remarkable all-in-one computer to the home market in China: Yoga Air 32 features a powerful hardware platform and an ultra-thin body (11.6 mm).
Monoblocks with discrete GPUs can be counted on the fingers, not only is the processor the most powerful in the line, and quite a gaming GPU, but also the case is very thin. True, all this causes a considerable cost – $ 2,400! The Yoga Air 32 has a simpler version – without a discrete GPU. They ask for 1980 dollars for it.
Yoga Air 32 is equipped with a 14-core Intel i9-13900H processor, 32 GB of LPDDR5-6000 memory and a 1 TB SSD. The discrete graphics is the GeForce RTX 4050 Laptop. The IPS screen is characterized by a diagonal of 31.5 inches and a resolution of 4K. It complies with the HDR600 standard and covers 97% of the DCI-P3 color space. Among the interface connectors are HDMI 2.1, USB-C, USB-C with Thunderbolt interface, USB-A. The monoblock also received webcams with infrared illumination for the Windows Hello function and four speakers with Dolby Atmos support.
The Lenovo Yoga Air 32 is currently available for pre-order in China, with retail sales starting May 31st.
