Qualcomm is in no rush to bring its flagship Arm-based Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 laptop processor to market. So far, it’s only available on the $1,200 Lenovo ThinkPad X13s laptop that runs Windows. And now his first tests appeared on the network.

Judging by them, Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 is significantly inferior to the latest Apple M2. In Geekbench 5, the 8cx Gen 3 processor scored 1111 points in the single-core test and 5764 points in the multi-core test. The M2 scored 1919 points in single core and 8929 points in multi-core.

That being said, even the M1 in the 2020 MacBook Air delivers the best numbers – 1740 in single-threaded mode and 7731 in multi-threaded mode.

Thus, Apple will continue to dominate the PC Arm processor market. Moreover, at the moment, the Cupertino corporation occupies almost 90% of the computer market on platforms with the Arm architecture in monetary terms.

Earlier it was said about Qualcomm’s plans to release a competitor to the Apple M2 processor, but this will happen only by the end of next year.

Nvidia released the 150 GeForce GTX 1630 and its weaker

Nvidia has introduced the GeForce GTX 1630, which can be called a severely stripped-down version of the GTX 1650. What is a card so primitive by modern standards capable of? Large reviews have already appeared on the Web, and we will take the TechPowerUp material as a basis.

As you can see, in Full HD, and at higher resolutions, such a card does not make sense, the GTX 1630 is very far behind even the Radeon RX 6400. The junior AMD adapter is ahead by almost 60%, and this is an abyss.

If you look at the average performance in games, we are talking about only 24 fps, that is, on average, the new product is not able to provide proper performance in modern games at maximum settings. Unfortunately, there is nothing in the list of source adapters that even roughly matches the GTX 1630. But if you look at older reviews, you can find that the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti at one time lagged behind the GTX 1650 not as much as the GTX 1630 lagged behind That is, the new Nvidia is even a little weaker than the GTX 1050 Ti. Actually, tests from other sources confirm this.

And here it would be useful to remember that the GTX 1050 Ti was introduced in 2016 and was priced at that time at $140. And the GTX 1630 costs $150. That is, Nvidia in 2022 released a video card of about the same level and at about the same price as six years ago.

Of the rest, only power consumption can be noted. In games, the adapter requires only about 50 watts, and the maximum that we managed to achieve from the card is 71 watts.

7000 for 64 cores up to 45GHz AMD Threadripper 5000WX

At first there were rumors about this, then AMD officially confirmed everything: the powerful AMD Threadripper 5000WX processors will go on sale and become available to everyone. As it turned out, the CPU is already available in China.

GeForce GTX 1630 is officially presented GTX 1650 at minimum

Nvidia today officially introduced the budget GeForce GTX 1630 video card. Interestingly, as in the case of the new Intel Arc A380, sales started in China – there the GeForce GTX 1630 can be purchased for 1000-1100 yuan, which is approximately $ 150 (including VAT). Similar money is asked in China for the Radeon RX 6400 and, in fact, the same Intel Arc A380.

Inno3D was one of the first to introduce its versions of the GeForce GTX 1630

The GeForce GTX 1630 is as close as possible to its older sister: it has the same TDP level (75 W), the same cooling system, the same architecture and the same printed circuit board. The only difference is that the GeForce GTX 1630 has a narrower memory bus (64 bits vs. 128, so the memory bandwidth is significantly less – 96 GB / s vs. 192 GB / s) and fewer CUDA cores – 512 instead of 896. If we talk Regarding the marking of GPUs, the GeForce GTX 1630 uses TU117-150, and the GTX 1650 uses TU117-300. The GPU frequency of the novelty was 1785 MHz, the amount of GDDR6 memory is 4 GB.

It is expected that the GeForce GTX 1630 will be even slower than the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, released, for a moment, six years ago. Why Nvidia decided to release the GeForce GTX 1630 right now, when the cost of video cards has simply collapsed, is a big question. However, the wider the range, the better for users. There is no data yet on how much the GeForce GTX 1630 will cost in other regions.

One of the first companies to introduce the GeForce GTX 1630 was Inno3D. The company introduced the new product in two versions – overclocked Twin X2 OC with two fans and Compact – with one fan and standard frequencies.
