These should be the processors for cheap laptops according to AMD. Mendocino APU Specifications Appeared

Published

Yes, dreams of a $300 Steam Deck-level console will not come true just yet. The AMD Mendocino APU specs leaked online, and it does have a relatively simple iGPU.

So, as you can see, apparently, we are still talking not about one processor, but about a line, since the number of processor cores is indicated as “up to four”. That is, there will probably be basic APUs with two cores. But the iGPU will be identical everywhere: with two CU units, that is, with 128 stream processors. This is four times less than in the APU of the Steam Deck console, that is, the performance will be quite modest. It still has to be good, but still it’s a completely different level.

What is interesting is the support for exclusively LPDDR5 (two channels), which will positively affect performance in general and iGPU in particular. And the APU itself will be very compact – only 100 mm2. From the rest, support for decoding AV1 and VP9 can be noted.

Very quiet, but very thick RTX 4070 Ti. Sycom GeForce RTX 4070 Ti Silent Master presented with Noctua fans

Very quiet but very thick RTX 4070 Ti Sycom GeForce

Another video card with a Noctua cooler has appeared on the market. And she’s incredibly fat again.

Sycom introduced the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti Silent Master, which received Noctua fans. As you can see in the photo, without fans this is a two-slot adapter, but with them it already takes up four slots. Actually, there are simply no high-performance models with Noctua fans for at least three expansion slots, although the same Sycom previously released a two-slot RTX 4060 Ti.

Like the lower-end cards, the new product uses Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM fans and a special frame for mounting them, developed by Nagao.

As the name implies, the new product should stand out primarily for its quiet operation. Compared to the MSI model, according to Sycom’s own measurements, the noise level is much lower: 43.6 versus 55.1 dB. Temperatures are also lower, but not as significantly: 74.5 versus 79.3 degrees.

The old GeForce RTX 3060 will still fight. Nvidia is going to reduce the price of this video card and extend its lifespan to combat AMD

The old GeForce RTX 3060 will still fight Nvidia is

Nvidia will extend the life of the GeForce RTX 3060 video card. Reportedly, this adapter will continue to be in service to better deal with AMD’s new products.

The old GeForce RTX 3060 will still fight.  Nvidia is going to reduce the price of this video card and extend its lifespan to combat AMD

created by DALL-E

IT Home resource says that the RTX 3060 will not be discontinued anytime soon. It will have to compete with the Radeon RX 6750 GRE. The latter was released in China at a price of 2200 yuan, that is, about $310, while the RTX 3060 in China costs about $280. At the same time, the AMD card is noticeably more productive, so, as expected, the RTX 3060 may become a little cheaper. True, in this case, Nvidia will create two problems for itself at once: reducing the price of the RTX 3060 will lead to the fact that it will be more attractive and the RTX 3050, which will cost quite a bit less, and at the same time the RTX 4060, which, although a little faster, will already be significantly more expensive than its predecessor . But, apparently, the prospects for good sales pay for all this. Besides, this is still a temporary solution.

Let us remind you that the RTX 3060 leads the Steam statistics, occupying almost 10%, and the RTX 4060 is still far from the success of its predecessor.

Processors have become too multi-core. Default Linux Arm 64-bit core kernel build can’t handle a pair of 192-core Ampere CPUs

Processors have become too multi core Default Linux Arm 64 bit core

While modern x86-compatible processors, thanks to AMD, have reached the mark of 128 cores per CPU, processors based on the Arm architecture have long since crossed this mark, and this has become a problem. As it turns out, the Linux operating system is not yet ready for this.

The question was raised by Ampere, which released its 192-core CPUs on Arm. The problem is that two such processors in one system means 384 cores, and today the 64-bit main Linux Arm kernel build only supports up to 256 cores. To solve this problem, Ampere itself introduced a patch that proposes to increase the Linux kernel limit to 512 cores using the “CPUMASK_OFFSTACK” method. In fact, support can be increased to 8192 cores at once, but the limit of 512 was chosen for the sake of economy, since support for each CPU core adds about 8 KB to the size of the kernel image.

It is reported that without patches, support for more than 256 kernels in Linux will not appear until next year, when Linux 6.8 is released.
