The Ryzen 5 7600X has two CCD chipsets. But is it possible to turn such a 6-core processor into a 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X?

German overclocker Roman Hartung, aka der8auer, opened up a 6-core Ryzen 5 7600X processor and found something very interesting under the cover: two CCD chiplets and an I / O Die. The configuration is just like the flagship 16-core Ryzen 9 7950 (AMD has 8 cores in each chiplet)!

It’s amazing, of course. The next step was to check the performance of all three components. To do this, small copper bars were made, which were installed on each of the three components, and their heating was determined using an infrared camera. As it turned out, only one CCD heats up.

And now the most important question is why AMD needed to install two chiplets on the 6-core Ryzen 5 7600X, when one is more than enough. While there is no exact answer to it, but there are two options.

First: one chiplet is defective. Roughly speaking, this is how AMD turns defective 16- or 12-core processors into 8- or 6-core ones. Actually, the practice is not new and is used all the time in the semiconductor industry. But there is also a small chance that the second CCD is blocked for some reason. And then, as soon as an unlocking algorithm is found, such a 6-core CPU can be turned into at least a 12-core one. And then everything in the 16-core. There were also examples of such a successful unlock (or free upgrade) in history.

Will the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti stay for at least another year? Nvidia is ending production of almost all mid-range graphics cards.

Will the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti stay for at least

Nvidia has decided to completely stop the production of several models of video cards of past generations.

Will the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti stay for at least another year?  Nvidia is ending production of almost all mid-range graphics cards.

We are talking about the GeForce RTX 2060 Super, RTX 2060, GTX 1660 Super and GTX 1660 cards. The source does not have any details, but we already know that there is an RTX 3050 to replace the RTX 2060/2060 Super, but the GTX 1660 cards there are simply no replacements. The source doesn’t mention the GTX 1660 Ti, though, so it’s possible Nvidia is keeping this card alone to close the hole in the sub-$300 segment.

In particular, in Europe now for the GTX 1660/1660 Super/1660 Ti they are asking for about the same money: from about 230-240 euros. At the same time, the cheapest RTX 3050 now costs 300 euros. No more affordable cards will appear in the RTX 30 line, and it’s not worth waiting for cheap RTX 40 cards in the foreseeable future, because even the RTX 4060 is supposedly released only next summer.

For comparison, AMD has a modern Radeon RX 6600 in the sub-$300/Euro segment, which is much more powerful than any GTX 1660, and along with the RTX 3050.

Intel has not yet introduced most of the Raptor Lake family, including mobile CPUs. But today the Core i7-1370P lit up on the Web.

Geekbench indicates that this is a 14-core processor with support for 20 threads, that is, we are talking about six large cores and eight small ones. It is worth noting here that this is a configuration identical to the Core i7-1280P, but the Core i7-1270P has 14 cores. That is, the new Intel CPU will be better than its predecessor, including in terms of the number of cores.

In addition, the frequencies will become higher. The maximum frequency will reach 5 GHz versus 4.8 GHz for the models of the Alder Lake line mentioned above. But the base frequency relative to the Core i7-1280P will increase by 100 MHz, up to 1.9 GHz, but relative to the Core i7-1270P it will decrease by 300 MHz.
