At the end of this year, Intel will launch Raptor Lake processors on the market, which will be the development of the Alder Lake line. Despite the absence of any global changes, the new CPUs will be significantly faster.

The Core i9-13900K smashes the Ryzen 9 5950X in the first test, but it doesn't matter.  It is more correct to compare with the Core i9-12900K

According to recent data, the flagship Core i9-13900K can score over 2300 points in Geekbench single-threaded mode. For comparison, the Core i9-12900K is gaining about 1900-2000 points, that is, the new product will be about 15% faster. This is a very good result, although, of course, Geekbench is far from the best benchmark for the CPU.

If we compare the Core i9-13900K with the Ryzen 9 5950X, then the former will be 35% faster already. But here the comparison is not at all appropriate, since in real modern tasks that can load a large number of cores, the current AMD flagship is approximately equal to the current Intel flagship. So, apparently, in real software, the Core i9-13900K will not be so far ahead of the Ryzen 9 5950X. Yes, and such a confrontation does not matter, since even before the release of the new Intel line, its competitor will bring the Ryzen 7000 generation to the market, so completely new CPUs will compete with each other.

Up to 8 XE cores and 6 GB of memory

The database of the SiSoftware Sandra test package has fresh data on the upcoming Arc A40 Pro and Arc A50 Pro graphics cards. These are graphics accelerators for workstations that are designed for engineering tasks.

Up to 8 XE cores and 6 GB of memory

The A50 Pro has a full ACM-G11 GPU with 8 Xe cores (128 execution units/1024 FP32 cores), while the A40 Pro is likely to get a stripped-down version of the chip. The clock frequency is 2.45 GHz.

Both cards have 6 GB GDDR6 memory, indicating a 96-bit memory bus. In this regard, both models are similar to the Arc A380 mobile card, which has almost the same configuration.

Thus, the company continues to prepare its entry-level products. When high-performance gaming and professional solutions based on the ACM-G10 GPU will appear, it is not reported. It is also not yet clear whether the Arc A40 Pro and Arc A50 Pro cards will be available in retail or whether they will appear only as part of workstations.

Earlier, Intel introduced its first gaming graphics card for $150.

Named the likely date of the announcement of the mobile

Qualcomm has updated its 2022 product launch roadmap. And there, among other things, they indicated the likely date for the announcement of the flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. It is expected to be shown on the first day of the Snapdragon Summit event, which will be held from November 14 to 17.

Named the likely date of the announcement of the mobile

Qualcomm also announced the Snapdragon X70 5G modem that will be included with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. It is credited with download speeds of up to 10 Gbps, as well as new advanced features for working in fifth-generation networks.

The processor (SM8550) will be manufactured using TSMC’s 4nm process. It will use a three-cluster layout. The composition is expected to include one super-powerful Cortex X3 core, two productive Cortex-A720 and A710, as well as three energy-efficient Cortex-A510. An Adreno740 graphics accelerator is also expected.

It is assumed that the first smartphone based on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor will be Xiaomi 13, its presentation is expected before the end of 2022.

Are the recommended prices for modern video cards too high? Calculated how adapters are priced based on performance

Are the recommended prices for modern video cards too high

Current generation video cards have been heavily overpriced almost all the time due to scarcity and demand from miners. Now the prices are getting back to normal, but how normal are the prices that are recommended? The source decided to evaluate how fair these prices are in terms of performance.

The source took the GeForce RTX 3070 as a conditional standard, which, according to our colleagues, is fairly priced if we take 4K resolution.

As you can see, there is an even more profitable graphics card – GeForce RTX 3060 Ti. That is, it offers more than its price of $400. As for the rest of Nvidia’s cards, most of them have not gone far from the standard, offering 90-94% price match. But all high cards are heavily overvalued. The same GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, according to such calculations, should cost only $ 814, and not $ 2,000 at all.

As far as AMD cards are concerned, only the Radeon RX 6800 and 6800 XT can be distinguished here, which are very close to 100%. Also, the Radeon RX 6700 XT has a rate of 92%. The rest of the cards are significantly more overpriced, although no model falls short of the RTX 3090 Ti in this indicator, simply because even the RX 6950 XT is almost half the price.

It is worth mentioning separately that the source only evaluated performance in games, so all calculations are rather arbitrary. They do not take into account the non-gaming capabilities of video cards, the same huge amount of memory in top GeForces, the complexity of GPU and PCB production, and so on.
