Nvidia graphics cards are known to now support Resizable BAR technology, which is the same as AMD’s SAM technology.
But are these technologies equally effective? The specialists of the Hardware Unboxed channel decided to check this. To do this, they compared the performance gain from activating Resizable BAR on the GeForce RTX 3070 and from SAM technology on the Radeon RX 6800. The video cards themselves are not equal in performance, but this does not matter for the experiment.
As you can see, on average, AMD’s implementation is slightly more efficient than its Nvidia counterpart. However, even in the first case, the average gain is only 3% (at 1440p), which makes no sense for gamers.
More specifically, the situation is more interesting. Firstly, in the case of an AMD card, the maximum performance gain is significantly higher (19% versus 9%), secondly, the maximum performance drop is also greater, although the difference is less pronounced (7% versus 4%), and thirdly, it should also be noted that there are many more games where SAM activation makes sense. If earlier it was actually only Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, now five more games have joined it, where the increase exceeds 10%, that is, it makes sense.
Huawei introduced an inexpensive monitor MateView SE. 23.8-inch IPS screen for $120
Together with the MateBook 16s laptop, Huawei today introduced an inexpensive monitor. The novelty is called MateView SE. The monitor features a 23.8-inch IPS panel with Full HD resolution and a 75Hz refresh rate. Provides coverage of 90% of the DCI-P3 color space and 100% of sRGB.
The MateView SE is the first Huawei monitor to feature e-book mode, which mimics an E Ink screen for ease of reading. There are two video inputs – HDMI and DisplayPort.
MateView SE is available in two versions. The basic one for $120 comes with a regular stand that only allows you to change the angle of inclination. And the $135 MateView SE features a convertible stand that allows you to adjust the height and switch the display from landscape to portrait mode.
Huawei MateBook 16s unveiled, world’s first Intel Evo laptop with Intel Core i9-12900H processor
Huawei today officially unveiled the MateBook 16s laptop in China. The novelty is presented as the world’s first model based on the Intel Evo platform, which uses the top 14-core Core i9-12900H processor, reaching a frequency of 5.0 GHz. True, it is included only in the most expensive modification, and the simpler versions are equipped with Core i5 and Core i7 processors.
It would seem that the laptop is rather big, and a discrete 3D accelerator should work in tandem with such a powerful processor. But he is not. Therefore, the cooling system without any frills – two wide copper heat pipes and two fans.
The laptop’s 16-inch touchscreen features a 3:2 aspect ratio (resolution of 2520 x 1680 pixels) and 100% sRGB color space coverage. The DeltaE value, according to official data, does not exceed one.
The device configuration also includes a webcam that allows you to record Full HD video, a USB-C port with a Thunderbolt 4 interface (so you can still connect a 3D card), another USB-C, two USB 3.2 Gen 1 and an HDMI video output.
Housing Huawei MateBook 16s – all-metal. The battery capacity was 84 Wh, fast charging technology is supported: 50% in 30 minutes. The laptop is 17.8 mm thick and weighs 1.99 kg.
The base MateBook 16s with a Core i5 processor, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD is priced at $1,045. The cost of the same version, but with a Core i7 processor, is $ 1,195. Finally, the top-of-the-line MateBook 16s with a Core i9 CPU, 16GB of RAM, and a 1TB SSD costs $1,495. Retail sales start June 6th.
The 16-core Ryzen 7000 easily defeated the Core i9-12900K. AMD showed what the future flagship is capable of
So, AMD today really talked about the Ryzen 7000 processors and even showed them in action. For example, how some model in the game reaches a frequency of over 5.5 GHz.
But that’s not all. For example, now we are sure that AMD did not increase the number of cores this time, so the conditional Ryzen 9 7950X will be 16-core. And it was some 16-core CPU that beat the Core i9-12900K in Blender by an incredible 31%! True, AMD’s new products will eventually have to compete with Rocket Lake processors, and not the current Alder Lake, but this does not make the advantage any less impressive.
AMD also confirmed that the new generation of processors will be released in the fall. Exactly when is unclear, but there have been many rumors of a September release.
