Tests of the latest MacBook Air laptop based on the M2 single-chip system have begun to appear on the Web. And this SoC shows its power: in the Geekbench benchmark, the laptop scored almost 1900 points in a single-threaded test and almost 9000 points in a multi-threaded test. And that was more than enough to beat the Mac Pro desktop workstation.

This, however, is about the basic version of the Mac Pro with an 8-core Intel Xeon W-3223 processor, but this is also significant. Especially given the price, the MacBook Air is asking $5,000 less. Speaking specifically about the results, the workstation is gaining 1000 and 8000 points in Geekbench, respectively. And even the more expensive Mac Pro with a 12-core Intel Xeon W-3235 CPU isn’t much faster in the multi-threaded test, with about 12,500 points.

Tested at 1080p and 1440p in 50 games using DirectX 12 and Vulkan graphics APIs. Based on benchmarks, the A750 is 3% faster than the RTX 3060 in DirectX 12 games at 1080p. It’s also about 5% faster at 1440p.

In games with Vulkan, the Intel card is about 4% faster than the RTX 3060 at 1080p and about 5% faster at 1440p.

As for specific games, in Resident Evil VIII the A750 has a frame rate of 160 FPS, while the RTX 3060 has a frame rate of 133 FPS. In Dolmen, the figures are 263 FPS for the A750, but the RTX 3060 has a higher level – 347 frames per second.

Earlier it was reported that in the Cotrol game, the Intel card outperformed its competitors.

AMD is preparing new packaging for Ryzen 7000 processors

An image of a new packaging for AMD Ryzen 7000 processors has appeared on the network. We are talking about expensive models. The source claims that such boxes will receive processors with a price tag of $500. Most likely, these will be Ryzen 9 models, while Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 may receive different packaging.

New packaging

The announcement of new AMD processors is expected on August 29 at a separate event, and Ryzen 7000 will go on sale on September 15. It is assumed that the prices for them will not differ much from those set for the Ryzen 5000 series.

At the same time, the line will include both processors for the new AM5 socket, and, probably, models for AM4. Such processors are credited with supporting DDR4 RAM, while the main line only supports DDR5. The very fact of the release of such processors has not yet been officially confirmed, but rumors on this topic are circulating on the network.

It is possible that the company will release only a few new CPUs for the old socket, which will be positioned separately from the main line.

Intel introduced Arc Pro A40 and Arc Pro A50 graphics

Everyone is waiting for real gaming graphics cards of the Arc line from Intel, but the company is in no hurry. But today, the range of Intel video cards has been replenished with two discrete models at once – Arc Pro A40 and Arc Pro A50. As the name suggests, they are designed for professional use. However, the characteristics are modest, so this most professional application will be limited.

Intel introduced Arc Pro A40 and Arc Pro A50 graphics cards.  But these are not the models that ordinary users and gamers are waiting for.

Both models have 6GB of GDDR6 memory, support real-time ray tracing and AV1 hardware encoding, and feature four Mini DP 1.4 ports. Arc Pro A40 has a peak consumption of 50 W, this card is a single-slot version, Arc Pro A50 is a dual-slot version, and its peak consumption is 75 W. Performance in the first case is 3.5 TFLOPS with single precision, in the second – 4.8 TFLOPS. For comparison, the performance of the old Radeon HD 6970 (it came out at the end of 2010) is 2.7 TFLOPS.

Together with discrete solutions, the Intel Arc Pro A30M mobile GPU is also presented – it is in many ways similar to the Arc Pro A40, only there is less memory (only 4 GB GDDR) and the power consumption level is adjustable – from 35 to 50 watts. The new Intel GPUs will appear in off-the-shelf products later this year.
