Intel has announced that the Sapphire Rapids Xeon Scalable processors will be introduced on January 10th.

Thus, the company still will not be able to release new items before the end of this year, as promised in the summer. However, originally Intel was going to launch such CPUs about two years ago, so a few months no longer play a role.

On January 10, apparently, the announcement of new products is expected, but it is not clear when they will hit the market. Sapphire Rapids will compete with Genoa generation AMD Epyc CPUs, which will be announced on November 10th. At the same time, Sapphire Rapids will offer a maximum of 56 cores, while the top new generation Epycs will have 96 cores. Despite such a huge difference, Intel recently said that its new Xeons will be better than the new Epycs.

Of course, it is incorrect to directly compare server and desktop processors, but it is worth remembering that Epyc Genoa will be based on the Zen 4 architecture, and Sapphire Rapids will use the Golden Cove architecture, that is, in this both lines are similar to their desktop counterparts Ryzen 7000 and Raptor Lake. At the same time, the Core i9-13900K with its eight large cores is able to compete with the Ryzen 9 7950X with 16 cores, but the former has 16 more small cores. The new Xeons won’t have any small cores, so it’ll be interesting to see if Intel’s 56 cores can take on AMD’s 96 cores.

By the way, there is one more interesting detail regarding both new products. The Sapphire Rapids lineup will include high-end models equipped with proprietary HBM memory that will only be available to select Intel customers. AMD will also have Genoa-X with additional V-Cache cache.

Phison 8 TB SSD will be sent to the moon

The manufacturer Phison announced that it is participating in a project to create data centers on the moon. This mission is carried out by Lonestar, SkyCorp and Canonical. The launch of this data center is planned for the second half of 2023.

Phison 8 TB SSD will be sent to the moon next year - there will be a data center

According to the company, their 8TB M.2 2280 NVMe drive has passed NASA Technology Readiness Level 6 (TRL-6) testing, which confirms its performance and can be used in space, at low temperatures and in vacuum.

Initially, we are talking about one server. Its storage module will be the size of a book. It will be equipped with SoC on the RISC-V architecture, and the power will come from solar panels. The server will deliver the NOVA-C lander, which is being developed by Intuitive Machines, to the Moon.

Note that this is not the first space mission involving Phison. Earlier, her 8 GB drive was installed in the Perseverance Martian rover. Also on board the ISS is used from a 4 TB SSD.

Earlier it was reported that the European Union wants to place data centers in space.

Not as thick as new Nvidia graphics cards. Non-Reference XFX RX 7900 XT Merc 310 Image Revealed

Not as thick as new Nvidia graphics cards Non Reference XFX

XFX will offer non-reference 3D cards of the Radeon RX 7000 line. Images of the RX 7900 XT Merc 310 model have already appeared on the Web, but we can safely assume that there will also be a similar-looking RX 7900 XTX Merc 310.

The card is made in the usual XFX design. It is very long, but not the thickest by modern standards. It will probably take up less than three expansion slots.

You can also highlight three power connectors (8 + 8 + 8) and the absence of a USB-C port, which is available on new generation AMD reference adapters.

Recall that the RX 7900 will be launched on December 13th. On the same day, reviews of new AMD products will be published. If the new 3D cards prove to be very successful for their prices, Nvidia can reduce the price of the GeForce RTX 4080, because it is 20% more expensive than the top RX 7900 XTX.

Intel graphics cards are drastically faster in some older games

Intel Arc graphics cards, among other things, have rather mediocre performance in older games. But today the company has released a fresh driver that significantly changes the situation, although not in all games.

The company has worked on optimization for some specific games, adding native support for DirectX 9. In particular, it is important to note Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, in which the performance of Arc adapters increased by almost 80%. The company has also worked on the 1% percentile, increasing the rate by up to 2.3 times, which should make the gameplay smoother.

Not all old games have received an impressive performance boost, but Intel can still be commended for continuing to work on its accelerators.
