The full transition to DDR5 has been postponed. Even Intel Core 13 (Raptor Lake) processors will be DDR4 compatible

Published

Rumor has it that the Alder Lake platform will be a memory transition, meaning it will support both DDR4 and DDR5, but Intel’s consumer desktop platforms will be exclusively DDR5 from the next generation. But according to new data from a source that has already been marked by a large number of confirmed leaks, nothing will change in the next generation of Intel processors – Intel Core 13 will support both DDR4 and DDR5 – just like the current Alder Lake.

What does this mean? First, this is further evidence that Raptor Lake will retain the current LGA1700 socket and will be compatible with all Alder Lake chipsets – the current Z690, as well as the upcoming H670, B660 and G610. Secondly, Raptor Lake will no longer be as revolutionary as Alder Lake. In fact, by offering twice as many small cores (Gracemont or E-cores), they will only be an update to the current Core 12 platform and nothing more.

As for the users, this is definitely a positive moment for them. Those who already have DDR4 memory do not need to buy expensive (yet) DDR5 memory. There is also little point in buying it for those who are going to switch to Alder Lake, because DDR4 will also serve in Raptor Lake, and in a couple of years DDR5 will finally drop in price to the level of DDR4, then it will be possible to switch to it.

Rumor Nvidia Stops Production of GeForce RTX 3080 GPUs After

A steep rise in the value of major cryptocurrencies triggered a cascade of events that resulted in the collapse of prices for new video cards. Many models have fallen in price, including top ones like the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti: with a recommended price of $1,200 (in the US), it is offered by the largest American retailers, Newegg and Amazon, for less than $1,000.

Rumor: Nvidia Stops Production of GeForce RTX 3080 GPUs After GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Drops in Price

A small price gap between the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and the GeForce RTX 3080 with 12GB of memory has led Nvidia to suspend shipments of GPUs to partners for the latter. So wrote one of the Twitter users familiar with the situation. It is impossible to confirm or refute these words, but in general such a development of events can be considered quite probable.

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.
