The overwhelming majority of modern microprocessors and microcontrollers are based on ready-made building blocks – IP-cores, which bring to life one or another architecture and a set of instructions. This allows for faster design and compatibility. Intel dominates processor architecture for computers with its x86 instruction set, while Arm holds a similar place in the market for SoCs for smartphones.
However, the markets for personal computers and smartphones are approaching saturation, while the market for IP cores is entering a new era. At least that’s what William Li, a research analyst at Counterpoint Research, said, “The global IP core market is approaching an inflection point as the share of semiconductor content in the solution increases, and there is a need for a varied and open approach to computing resources, memory, security and other architectures. “
The analyst explains that this demand is mainly driven by the growth of advanced applications such as smart devices with artificial intelligence, 5G communications, supercomputers and autonomous cars. It is expected to “drive product value growth in the chip design and intellectual property licensing industry.”
Counterpoint Research predicts that the global market for licensed IP cores will grow by an average of 11% per year in the coming years and will reach $ 8.6 billion by 2025. Today the market is dominated by companies such as Arm, Synopsys, Cadence and CEVA. At the same time, Arm occupies more than a third of the market due to its extremely high share of mobile devices. At the same time, the RISC-V open instruction system and processor architecture, introduced in 2010, is gaining momentum. The fact that the world’s largest developers, including MediaTek, Qualcomm, NXP and SiFive, have already released solutions based on RISC-V makes this architecture a “rising star”. Its strengths include the benefits of open source, lower power consumption, security features, and less dependence on political friction.
The Core i9-12900K beats AMD’s best processor again. The novelty bypasses Ryzen 9 5950X by more than a quarter
The closer the release of Intel Alder Lake processors is, the more useful tests appear on the web. We’ve already seen an excellent Core i9-12900K score with Cinebench, now it’s CPU-Z.
The benchmark of this software confirms the high performance of the new product. The CPU scored 825 points in single-threaded mode, but unfortunately the result is not visible in multi-threaded mode. It seems that here the Core i9-12900K is close to the opponent.
The latter is the 16-core Ryzen 9 5950X. And in single-threaded mode, it loses, gaining only 648 points. That is, the increase is 27%. Compared to the Core i9-11900K, the gain is also very large – 21%.
Recall that the Core i9-12900K, along with other unlocked processors of the new line, will be released at the end of the year, and the lower CPUs will become available only at the beginning of the next.
Innodisk Delivers First Industrial-Grade PCIe 4.0 Solid State Drives
Innodisk has announced the release of PCIe 4.0 industrial-grade solid-state drives. The introduction of 5G networks and artificial intelligence of things (AIoT) increases the requirements for the volume and speed of storage, she said. Increasing the volume to 4 GB and doubling the speed allowed the transition from PCIe 3.0 to PCIe 4.0. The novelties presented by Innodisk, in contrast to similar consumer models, are designed to operate in a wide temperature range – from -40 ° C to 85 ° C.
The drives use 112-layer 3D TLC flash memory. They are TCG OPAL 2.0 compliant, equipped with PCIe Gen4 x4 interface, and support AES-256 encryption and NVMe protocol. One of the notable innovations is Namespace technology, which provides higher read and write efficiency and longer SSD lifespan.
The list of new products includes M.2 2280 4TE (256 GB to 2 TB), M.2 2280 4TG-P (256 GB to 2 TB) and M.2 2280 4TG2-P (128 GB to 4 TB). The manufacturer does not provide prices, speed and resource indicators, limiting himself to the promise that trial samples of drives will be available in October.
EIZO Condor XR1 Card Powered by Dual Nvidia Turing RTX GPUs
EIZO Rugged Solutions, which manufactures, among others, ruggedized graphics cards, has introduced a product called the Condor XR1. This is an OpenVPX 6U form factor expansion card for HPC and GPGPU based on Nvidia Turing RTX architecture. There are two types of cards available. One is built on two Nvidia RTX 5000 GPUs, the other is built on two Nvidia RTX3000 GPUs.
With an RTX 5000 GPU (TU104), the accelerator configuration includes 6,150 CUDA cores, 768 Tensor cores, and 96 RT cores. Its performance is estimated at 18.98 TFLOPS on 32-bit floating point operations.
The Condor XR1 supports up to eight DisplayPort ++ video outputs and has dedicated H.264 / H.265 (HEVC) decoders. Each GPU can be individually configured to route to different endpoint configurations, as each PCIe switch also allows paired I / O modules to communicate with the CPU or directly with the GPUs themselves via Nvidia RDMA. The solution is said to be ideal for sensor-intensive applications such as unmanned systems, airborne radars, signal analysis (SIG-INT), electronic warfare (EW), digital signal processing (DSP). It is available in conductive or air cooled versions and supports PCIe Gen 3.0 (16, 8 or 4 lanes). The card is tested according to MIL-STD-810 standards and is offered in both OpenVPX VITA 65 and SOSA configurations.
