Surprisingly, the top-end Leica camera is not the most expensive component of the Xiaomi 12S Ultra to repair. In the event of a motherboard failure, you will have to pay twice as much for it as for the camera
Xiaomi has published a price list for the replacement of individual components of the flagship smartphone Xiaomi 12S Ultra. A cursory study of it suggests that it is better not to break the device, and even better to get insurance – this is provided in China (and Xiaomi 12S Ultra is not sold anywhere else).
So, non-warranty repair of the motherboard will cost $370. Screen replacement is cheaper, but also hits the pocket – $ 265. But the top-end Leica camera, which Xiaomi is so proud of, is only the third most expensive component: only $ 180 will be asked for its replacement. Based on this, one can imagine that in fact the cost of camera components is not as high as one might think. But it includes a 1-inch optical sensor. Another interesting thing: a non-warranty battery replacement will cost $23.5, and a back cover replacement is almost twice as expensive – $44.5.
The cost of replacing any component, regardless of complexity and its location, is quite low – only 6 dollars.
But these new AMD processors already look much more interesting. AMD talked a little about Ryzen generation Strix Point
The Ryzen 8000U/H/HS processors may disappoint with the lack of any significant improvements, but these are not all the new products that AMD is preparing for the 2024 model year. The Strix Point line will be much more interesting.
According to AMD’s slides, this line will also be released next year. It is not yet clear under what name, but based on the principle of naming the company’s processors, it should be Ryzen 8050, where the eight will indicate 2024, and the five will represent the Zen 5 architecture.
Yes, these will be mobile processors based on the new Zen 5 architecture, which should already make them much faster than current APUs. In addition, the iGPU of such processors will be built on the RDNA 3+ (or RDNA 3.5) architecture, but it is not yet clear what improvements it will bring.
If the Ryzen 8000U/H/HS has increased performance by 60% relative to the Ryzen 7000U/H/HS, then the Strix Point will be three times faster.
According to early leaks, Strix Point, unlike the Ryzen 7040 and Ryzen 8040, will have up to 12 processor cores, and the Strix Halo line will offer up to 16 cores, but these will be APUs of a completely different level. Also, Strix Point processors were previously credited with iGPUs with 1024 stream processors versus 768 for the Radeon 780M. Strix Halo will supposedly have 2560 stream processors, which is more than a number of Radeon desktop video cards.
One of the most senseless changes in processor generations, and this time from AMD. Mobile Ryzen 8000U/H/HS presented
AMD will present new Ryzen 8000 mobile processors today as part of the Advance AI event. Materials from the presentation have already appeared on the Internet, so the new products are fully revealed to us.
The new generation is called Hawk Point and, unfortunately, it is almost no different from the Ryzen 7040 line. In fact, models with the corresponding names, for example, Ryzen 7 8840HS and Ryzen 7 7840HS, either differ slightly in frequencies or do not differ at all in basic parameters . There are the same Zen 4 processor cores, the same iGPU based on the RDNA 3 architecture, the same number of cores, cache memory, and so on.
In fact, the only update worth mentioning is the new Ryzen AI core for working with artificial intelligence. If the Ryzen 7000 has such a unit with a performance of 10 TOPS, then the Ryzen 8000 has 16 TOPS. The increase is very large, but the problem is that so far there is absolutely no place to use it.
Thus, the transition from Ryzen 7000U/H/HS to Ryzen 8000U/H/HS can be called one of the most minor and insignificant in all recent years from AMD.
It remains to be added that laptops with new APUs will hit the market in the next quarter.
The Chinese will receive a stripped-down RTX 4090 instead of the banned original version. Details of the GeForce RTX 4090D (Dragon) model began to appear
The GeForce RTX 4090D (Dragon) video card, created specifically for China, generally remains a mystery, but the first details have appeared on the Internet.
In particular, it is reported that the frequencies of this version will be slightly different from the usual one. More precisely, the GPU will operate at frequencies of 2280-2520 MHz versus 2235-2520 MHz.
Also, the MEGAsizeGPU insider says that the number of CUDA cores in the Chinese card will still be less. The RTX 4090D will receive the same AD102 GPU, but cut down. At the same time, the insider says that he already has the exact parameters and even images, but cannot share this yet.
Given that the frequency changes are minor, the main question is how much the GPU will be cut and whether the memory subsystem will be cut.
Insider MEGAsizeGPU previously spoke about the launch of the RTX 4060 and RTX 4060 Ti before the announcement, as well as the release dates for these models.
