Steam Deck Release Forces AMD And Valve To Work On Improving Linux Optimization For Ryzen Processors

Published

on

It looks like the Steam Deck may be more powerful by the time it hits the market than it is now. AMD and Valve have teamed up to improve optimizations and make the processor better.

More specifically, work is underway to optimize Linux for Ryzen processors. At the moment, the used ACPI CPUFreq driver is far from ideal. It is not optimized well enough, which degrades the performance and power efficiency of the Ryzen CPU.

The details of the company will be revealed at a later date, but the work of AMD and Valve will lead not only to an increase in Steam Deck performance, but also to improve the overall performance of Ryzen processors running Linux.

The source had all the details about the new Nvidia 3D card, but not the long-awaited GeForce RTX 40 line, but the old GTX 16 series. Now that the cost of video cards has dropped to almost the recommended level, the premiere of the low-powered GeForce GTX 1630 looks strange. However, Nvidia certainly has its own ideas in this regard.

The twenty-fifth version of the 3D accelerator based on the GPU TU117.  The announcement date and all the details about the GeForce GTX 1630 video card, which is unlikely to impress anyone with its parameters

The GeForce GTX 1630 will be based on the old 12nm TU117 GPU in the TU117-150 version. According to the Techpowerup database, this will be the twenty-fifth version of the TU117, if you count the various versions of 3D accelerators for desktop PCs, consumer laptops and mobile workstations.

The TU117-150 will have 512 CUDA cores, the GPU will be paired with 4GB of 12GHz GDDR6 memory via a 64-bit bus. The frequency of the GPU itself will be 1.8 GHz. Due to the truncated bus, the memory bandwidth will be 96 GB / s – even less than a regular GeForce GTX 1650 with GDDR5 memory. At the same time, the TDP of the novelty is still the same 75 watts.

The official premiere of the GeForce GTX 1630 is expected on May 31st. It will probably take place as part of Nvidia’s press event, timed to coincide with Computex 2022. Perhaps the company will announce something more interesting that day. For example, GeForce RTX 40 3D cards. The latest data suggests that they may come out earlier than expected.

Despite the fact that Intel Raptor Lake processors should be released only at the very end of the year, they are increasingly appearing in various benchmarks. Today, the top-end Core i9-13900K lit up in the tests.

The Core i9-13900K showed that the new Intel processors will have a lot more cache.  But the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is still far away

The software data confirms early rumors that the new CPUs will have much more cache memory. In particular, the Core i9-13900K has a total (L2 and L3) of 68 MB of cache. Apparently, we are talking about 36 MB of L3 cache and 32 MB of L2 cache. To be more precise, only large cores will have L3 cache, and small ones will also have L2.

Presumably, each large Raptor Cove core will have 2MB of L2 cache and 3MB of L3 cache. And each cluster of small cores will have 4 MB and 3 MB, respectively. The new CPUs will have eight large cores, and 16 small ones if we are talking about top models. As a result, Raptor Lake will have 55% more cache than Alder Lake.

The Core i9-13900K showed that the new Intel processors will have a lot more cache.  But the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is still far away

However, this will still be comparable only to the Ryzen 5000, which came out a year and a half ago, and Intel processors will still be far from models with 3D V-Cache.

HardwareUnboxed decided to check out AMD’s recent statement that the company’s cards are more profitable than competitors. It turned out it was true.

Nvidia graphics cards are much more overpriced than AMD adapters.  Comparison of current markups for 3D maps appeared

If we are talking about the US market, then the markups for Radeon graphics cards are much lower there than for GeForce adapters. The former are on average 5% more expensive than the recommended price, while the latter are already 24% more expensive.

Of course, for each buyer it is more important how overpriced the card he is going to purchase. We can note the Radeon RX 6500 XT, which is on average 3% cheaper than the recommended price. The prices of the RX 6600 XT, RX 6750 XT, RX 6900 XT and RX 6950 XT also look great. But the RX 6800 and RX 6800 XT are respectively 31% and 23% more expensive than the recommended prices, which makes their purchase look pointless.

As for Nvidia cards, the RTX 3090 Ti and RTX 3080 Ti also boast a zero markup, but on the RTX 3060 Ti it is 40%, and in general, junior adapters are greatly overpriced, and the RTX 3050 has risen in price by 5 over the last month. %.
