The other day we learned that the Intel DG2-448 video card (448 computing units) should provide performance level of the GeForce RTX 3070 and Radeon RX 6700 XT, and at the same time there will be an even more productive version of the DG2-512.
However, most gamers are buying more affordable 3D cards anyway. So what can Intel do here? The DG2-256 adapter, judging by the first tests, will provide the performance level of the GTX 1050. And against the background of comparing the DG2-448 with the RTX 3070, this seems very strange.
But here it should be borne in mind that the new data was obtained from the Geekbench benchmark, which is not very suitable for testing GPU performance. However, the huge gap between the two Intel GPUs with less than a twofold difference in the number of execution units still looks very, very strange.
However, a similar benchmark result for the GPU DG2-96, which is likely a next-generation integrated GPU, brings a bit of clarity. The card performs at the level of the very old GeForce GTX 460, which in reality will not be, since even the current GPU Xe with the same 96 computing units is many times more productive.
Thus, the test results in this case should not scare us. Instead, they reveal that the DG2-256 has 8GB of GDDR6 memory with a 128-bit bus, while the DG2-96 has 4GB of memory with a 64-bit bus.
For the GeForce RTX 4090, a power supply with a capacity of up to 1200 W is recommended
It’s no secret that Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4090 graphics cards need powerful power supplies, but official recommendations from Nvidia partners vary.
Some manufacturers follow Nvidia’s recommendations for a standard 850W PSU, but many manufacturers list 1000W PSUs as recommended, some even insist on a 1200W PSU.
Asus recommends a 1000W PSU for its ROG Strix graphics card. Asus suggests this because the company assumes that users will be overclocking both the CPU and the GPU. The Gigabyte Aorus Master and Zotac AMP Extreme/Trinity RTX 4090 graphics cards have the same power supply recommendation of 1000W.
MSI, PNY, Galax, and Inno3D recommend an 850W PSU. However, Palit recommends using up to 1200W power supply for its RTX 4090 GameRock graphics card, which is the most stringent requirement among graphics card manufacturers today.
Today we already wrote that the GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card can consume more than 600 watts without any extreme overclocking. And when using the most powerful processors and overclocking, the power of the entire system will be much higher.
The first example that the GeForce RTX 4090 can consume over 600 watts. Card tested at Furmark
The GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card can indeed draw over 600W without any extreme overclocking.
The results of testing new items in Furmark have already appeared on the Web. In the msi-01 base test, the GPU frequency reached 3 GHz, and the power consumption was 426 W, but in the notorious Donut test, the frequency, although significantly lower (2.64 GHz), consumed the card almost 616 W! This test loads 3D cards much more heavily, which, as we can see, has a noticeable effect on power consumption.
In this case, the tests were carried out with a liquid cooler and, judging by the core frequency, in overclocking. Of course, without overclocking and in games, the consumption of the RTX 4090 will never reach what we see in the Donut test, but at the same time, such results mean that this is far from the limit for the adapter, and consumption during extreme overclocking can only be imagined .
Will the GeForce RTX 5090 and Radeon RX 8950 XT have such memory? Samsung to produce 36GHz GDDR7 memory
Samsung at the Samsung Tech Day 2022 event talked about the achievements and plans for its semiconductor business, at the same time touching on the topic of GDDR7 memory for future generations of video cards.
There are practically no details yet, we do not know when such memory will appear on the market, but Samsung indicated its frequency – 36 GHz!
Recall that GDDR6X memory currently runs at 21 GHz in some 3D cards. Of course, in all these cases we are talking about the effective frequency, but this applies to any such memory.
If we talk about top-end graphics cards with 384-bit bus, 36 GHz memory will provide 1.7 GB / s bandwidth! Probably, this will significantly speed up the new generation of 3D maps, even without taking into account new GPUs.
