Up to 60 cores, up to 64 GB of HBM2e memory and price up to $17,000. Intel Xeon Scalable CPU Sapphire Rapids generation introduced

Intel fully introduced the Max Series server processors, which it originally announced back in November, but then many details were left behind the scenes. Now all the cards are revealed.

So, we are talking about the fourth generation of Xeon Scalable CPU, which is called Sapphire Rapids. At the same time, the generation itself includes a huge number of processors divided into different classes, and the Max Series line is actually only one of the classes, and not the oldest and far from the most extensive. Therefore, in general, we will not talk about the Max Series separately, but about the entire Sapphire Rapids line.

So, this is a long-awaited and very late generation of server CPUs relative to Intel’s original plans. It is based on the Golden Cove architecture and is manufactured according to Intel 7 standards, that is, according to the 10-nanometer process technology. Some Sapphire Rapids models have native HBM2e memory up to 64 GB. At the same time, the novelties have a chiplet design and consist of four tiles, although this does not apply to all models.

Despite the fact that previously all leaks and rumors spoke of a maximum of 56 active cores with a physical presence of 60 cores, this turned out to be only partly true. 60 cores are available exclusively in the Xeon Platinum 8490H model, there are also two models from other classes where 56 cores are available. In other cases, there are even fewer nuclei. It can also be noted that the maximum TDP value within the entire line is 350 W, and the amount of cache memory in the third level is a maximum of 112.5 MB. All new items support DDR5-4800 memory and PCIe 5.0.

Relative to the previous generation, the new items look very impressive. Intel talks about the following features:

  • + 53% average performance gain in general purpose computing
  • Up to 10X faster AI inference and learning performance
  • Up to 2x capacity for vRAN workloads at the same power range (5G vRAN)
  • Up to 2x faster data compression with 95% fewer cores (network and storage)
  • Up to three times faster performance in Data Analytics
  • Up to 3.7x performance improvement for memory-bound workloads in HPC (Xeon Max CPU series)

Intel’s new products will compete with Epyc Genoa processors, the older versions of which offer 96 cores, as well as with the upcoming 128-core Bergamo. On the AMD side, there are many more cores on the CPU, a more recent architecture, a thinner process technology and a significantly lower price. So for the 96-core Epyc 9654 they ask for less than $12,000, while the 60-core Xeon 8490H is priced at $17,000. On the Intel side, there is a larger selection of CPUs for different segments and support for multiprocessor configurations. The same Xeon 8490H can be used in systems with eight CPUs, while AMD solutions only support dual-processor systems.

Twitch launched an endless series in the style of sitcoms

On the Twitch platform, they launched the series Nothing, Forever in the style of sitcoms of the 80s. It is notable for the fact that it is completely created using neural networks. Replicas for the series are “invented” by ChatGPT, and DALL-E, Stable Diffusion and Azure Cognitive Services generate a picture, which is then played using the Unity game engine. For voice acting, a speech synthesizer is used.

The series is constantly being created and developed based on the feedback of the viewers. At the same time, even very good jokes sometimes come across, although often the characters speak out of place or even simply remain silent. There are also animation bugs.

Overall, the visuals are similar to the first 3D PC and console games, and the scenes are fairly repetitive.

The series is based on the 1980s sitcom Seinfeld. The series can be watched here. In the future, the authors intend to create other similar projects to compete with Netflix series. They will also be endless, or at least very long.

How so Microsoft A third party developer has already added

Creative Data Studios has developed a plug-in for Microsoft Word called Ghostwriter ChatGPT that adds chatbot functionality to a text editor. The novelty was created without the participation of Microsoft.

How so, Microsoft?  A third party developer has already added ChatGPT to Word

There are currently two versions of the plugin available: $10 and $25. The first is limited to short responses of two paragraphs and uses only the ChatGPT language model. A more advanced one is devoid of such restrictions, it uses all OpenAI models. You can install the plugin through the Office Add-in Store.

In addition, the developers promise an early release of similar plug-ins for all applications from the Microsoft package: Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote. After the release of the add-on pack, users who have already purchased the plugin for Word will receive a discount.

According to Patrick Husting, who developed Ghostwriter, Microsoft will most likely disable Ghostwriter in the future when its own implementation of ChatGPT support is ready. However, this option can still be used.

Earlier it was reported that Microsoft has already added support for the GPT-3.5 model to Teams Premium, which will allow the neural network to listen to conversations, draw notes and plans based on the results. Microsoft also plans to add ChatGPT to the Bing search engine, but there, according to rumors, there will already be GPT-4.

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra vs iPhone 14 Pro Max in a camera battle. Published a large video comparison of the two flagships

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra vs iPhone 14 Pro Max in

Despite the fact that there are still two weeks before the start of sales of Samsung Galaxy S23 smartphones, full reviews of the camera of the older novelty have already been published on the Web. The author of the famous SuperSaf channel compared the Galaxy S23 Ultra camera with the iPhone 14 Pro Max camera.

Unfortunately, although the comparison is voluminous, it is far from being as informative as it happens on some other channels. However, there is still a lot of information.

As you can see, in low light, the brainchild of Samsung shows a wider dynamic range and detail. This is true for all cameras, including the ultra wide and tele cameras. But when shooting video at night, everything is not so clear. At least the Korean smartphone has a lot more noise and slower autofocus.

Of course, Samsung easily wins in the comparison of cameras, because it has two of them at once. Already at 10x zoom, the difference is very noticeable, and the iPhone cannot offer more than 15x at all.

Cinematic Mode on the iPhone clearly looks better, in addition, we can note a fairly significant difference in color reproduction, both in the photo and in the video.
