The US is struggling to create a Chip 4 technology alliance to weaken China, but so far it has not been successful

Published

The Chip 4 technology alliance is part of a US strategy to expand access to vital chips and weaken Chinese involvement on trade and national security grounds.

The alliance is expected to include the United States, South Korea, Japan and Taiwan. It offers a forum for governments and companies to discuss and coordinate policies on supply chain security, workforce development, R&D and subsidies.

A year after the announcement, the four countries have yet to finalize plans even for a preliminary meeting. Concerns include a likely Chinese reaction, reluctance to include Taiwan in the intergovernmental forum, and continued tensions between South Korea and Japan.

Sujay Shivakumar, senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies think tank in Washington, said the US “needs alliances to strengthen its supply chain” and “breathe” to recapitalize its industrial base in the sector. He added that the Chips 4 initiative was also designed “in part to slow down China’s progress in chip development.”

In July, Chinese Commerce Department spokeswoman Shu Jueting warned that the US was “damaging and splitting” the global semiconductor supply chain through the Chips 4 alliance, which she said could exacerbate supply chain problems if it were “discriminatory and exclusive.”

Resistance from China, which accounts for 40% of global IT production and remains the most important source of key components and materials, has alarmed several regional governments and chip manufacturers.

The head of Samsung Electronics’ semiconductor division, said last week that Samsung had “taken its concerns” about the initiative to the South Korean government. A US official said that South Korea, the most reluctant of the potential members of the alliance, expressed concern that the initiative would “impair the competitive balance among some of the major chipmakers.” South Korea also fears that Washington might be tempted to use the initiative to give American rivals Intel and Micron a competitive advantage.

Japan and South Korea have also shown a reluctance to engage at the governmental level with the formal group that includes Taiwan.

Intel unintentionally showed 34 core processors where all the cores are

Intel introduced the Raptor Lake processors, where the flagship is the Core i9-13900K with 8 large and 16 small cores, that is, it has a total of 24 cores. But perhaps Intel has something even more impressive?

At the Intel Innovation 2022 event, the company demonstrated a wafer with Raptor Lake crystals. Not only are the crystals themselves clearly not the same as those of the new Core desktop products, the label also directly indicates that these are 34-core processors.

The study of the crystals showed that probably all 34 nuclei are large. Interestingly, the Intel booth staff had no idea what kind of CPU it was.

Presumably, these may be processors of the Sapphire Rapids family, which are expected next year. They should come out both in the server segment and in the segment of solutions for workstations. Perhaps the latter will be promoted as part of the Raptor Lake line, although the labeling may simply be a mistake.

The monstrous Core i9 13900KS lit up on the Web and

That same mysterious Intel processor with a frequency of 6 GHz out of the box has already lit up on the Web. And it’s actually called the Core i9-13900KS, as we expected.

Moreover, it immediately lit up in the CPU-Z benchmark, scoring 982 and 18,453 points there in single-threaded and multi-threaded modes, respectively.

In comparison, the Core i9-13900K scores 810 and 14,900 points out of the box, and 945 and 16,880 points when the power limit is removed, according to the results available on the Web. True, you need to understand that in all these cases the results were obtained on the CPU before they were released to the market, so they may be slightly different for serial samples. As for the Core i9-12900K, its upscale score is 825 and 11,320, while the latest Ryzen 9 7950X scores 787 and 15,660.

Under what conditions the Core i9-13900KS was tested is unknown. He, too, could pass the benchmark without power restrictions.

Recall, Intel said that such a processor will be released next year in a limited edition.

Is the cheapest video card of the current generation now

Intel is indeed gearing up to launch the ultra-affordable Arc A310 graphics card. Yesterday the company introduced the flagship Arc A770 and new processors, but the A310 quietly registered on the company’s website.

It has only 6 Xe cores, that is, 768 FP32 blocks. The GPU runs at 2100 MHz, and there is also 4 GB of GDDR6 memory at 15.5 GHz and a 64-bit bus.

The card does not have a price, but with such parameters it cannot be large. In addition, the same Arc A380 is priced at only $140, while the A310 should be cheaper. This will mean that it is the Arc A310 that will become the cheapest current generation video card on the market, since the Radeon RX 6400 and GeForce GTX 1630 (if it can be attributed to the current generation at all) are simply more expensive.
