Until recently, 3B gaming cards were converted into mining ones, but now it’s the other way around. Sapphire Unveils Radeon 6700 Accelerators That Are Surprisingly Similar to the BC-2235 GPRO X080 Mining Model
A day after the leak, indicating the imminent release of the Radeon RX 6700 graphics card, Sapphire, a longtime AMD partner, officially introduced the new product. In technical terms, everything that was said in the previous leak was confirmed: the Radeon RX 6700 has 36 execution units, 2304 stream processors and 10 GB of GDDR6 memory with a 160-bit bus. And here comes something interesting.
The first point: now we can confidently say that the desktop Radeon RX 6700 is an analogue of the mobile Radeon RX 6700M. The parameters are exactly the same, except that the TDP varies significantly: 220 W for the desktop version and 135 W for the mobile one.
The second point: in terms of their parameters (and external design), the Radeon RX 6700 is almost exactly the same as the previously released Sapphire model BC-2235 GPRO X080, designed for miners. It turns out that now it has been converted into a gaming 3D accelerator, although earlier gaming video cards were converted into accelerators for miners. Such an interesting transformation has taken place in the market.
Both Sapphire Radeon RX 6700 3D cards run at 2230 – 2495 MHz and have 80 MB of fast Infinity Cache memory. The set of video outputs is standard: three DisplayPort and one HDMI. Prices have not yet been announced.
Intel wants a “five-year plan” in a year? Next year the company will have three lines of desktop processors at once, as Meteor Lake-S will still be released
Intel seems to have decided to exceed the plan not only in terms of technical processes, but also in terms of CPU lines. It turns out that Meteor Lake-S desktop processors will still be released.
Michelle Johnston Holthaus, Intel executive vice president and general manager of the client computing group, spoke about this. The PC World journalist, apparently not expecting an affirmative answer to his question regarding the fate of Meteor Lake-S, even asked again, and again received an affirmative answer.
So, tabletop Meteor Lake will still be released, and will be released next year. But now it’s not very clear how Intel is going to launch three lines at once within one year. Let us remind you that Raptor Lake Refresh will be released in October, and Arrow Lake is also expected next year. And if previously it was believed that the latter would simply replace the former, now another line is being added to them.
Perhaps Meteor Lake and Arrow Lake will coexist in the same way as in the mobile segment: Intel said that the former will occupy the mid-price segment, and the latter will be available in the upper price segment. And if these lines are released on desktop at the end of 2024, then they will together replace Raptor Lake Refresh. However, such a division will still be unusual, and Intel itself promised to release ARROW Lake much earlier than at the end of next year.
The Huawei Kirin 9000s platform is truly unique. It has a 12-core processor, although it’s far from record-breaking performance.
The Kirin 9000s platform continues to bring surprises, although smartphones based on it have been on sale for some time.
After the latest Huawei flagships received HarmonyOS 188.8.131.52, Geekbench software began to define the characteristics of the new SoC differently. If earlier it was seen as an eight-core solution, now the number of processor cores is indicated as 12.
It’s worth remembering here that AnTuTu initially determined that the platform had exactly 12 cores, however, including two Cortex-A34.
Geekbench, well, indicates the types of cores, but talks about three clusters: four cores with a frequency of 1.53 GHz, two with a frequency of 2.62 GHz and six with a frequency of 2.15 GHz. This information is confirmed by screenshots from the mobile version of the benchmark.
We have not yet seen mobile SoCs with 12-core CPUs. At the same time, the performance of the Kirin 9000s, despite this configuration, is far from flagship by 2023 standards, that is, the cores themselves are not the most powerful.
