Intel announced that it has already begun shipping its dedicated Data Center GPU Flex line of graphics accelerators, and at the same time boasted of their performance.
From the name it is clear that the solution is intended for data processing centers. And as a competitor, Intel lists Nvidia A10 – an adapter based on GPU GA102 with 9216 CUDA cores, 24 GB of memory and performance (FP32) of 31.24 TFLOPS.
Intel offers two models: Flex 140 and Flex 170. With Nvidia A10, the company mainly compares the first, but we will start with the second. The Flex 170 has the same TDP of 150W but only 16GB of memory and 16TFLOPS of performance. It is based on a GPU with 32 Xe cores or 4096 FP32 blocks. That is, technically, the Intel solution looks weaker. At the same time, in the tests, the results of which are shared by Intel, it is its cards that turn out to be better, and at times. Here Intel explains everything with the Xe Media Engine. One such unit is capable of processing video in 8K at 60 fps with 12-bit HDR decoding. As for the number of threads, the results can be seen on the Intel charts. Flex 170 has two such engines.
As for the Flex 140, the specifications are more unusual. The adapter is based on two GPUs, while in total it has only 16 Xe cores and only 12 GB of memory. Performance is claimed to be only 8 TFLOPS. That is, two GPUs are twice as weak as one in the Flex 170. But the TDP here is only 75 W, and there are four media engines at all (two per GPU).
Recall that today Intel also introduced the Raptor Lake processors, the Arc A770 graphics card and talked about the CPU with a frequency of 6 GHz out of the box.
Radeon RX 7900 XT and XTX vs. GeForce RTX 4080. AMD Unboxing Photos Revealed
The Radeon RX 7900 graphics cards will be released on December 13, and reviews will be published on the same day. But thematic resources were allowed to share the unpacking today.
Despite the fact that the RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT are as similar as possible on the outside, they are still not identical. The older model has a length of 287 mm and weighs 1.8 kg, while the younger one, with a mass of 1.5 kg, is characterized by a length of 267 mm. By the standards of modern Nvidia flagships, these are very compact solutions. In addition, they occupy only 2.5 expansion slots instead of three or four for the new GeForce RTX 40 products. Actually, the general photo clearly shows how much smaller AMD new products are.
Of the less significant, we can note two power connectors (8 + 8), an air temperature sensor immediately behind the fan, as well as the same three red stripes on the radiator. It turns out that they symbolize the third generation of cards based on the RDNA architecture.
Recall that we have some comparisons of new products from AMD and Nvidia, but so far, unfortunately, not in games.
The $900 Radeon RX 7900 XT outperforms the $1,200 GeForce RTX 4080. But only in one test.
Following the older sister, the Radeon RX 7900 XT also appeared in the Geekbench database, which will be sold at a price of $ 900.
Now we have the results of both new AMD products in the same tests. And if cards from different manufacturers in such benchmarks can only be compared conditionally, then a comparison of cards from the same line is more revealing.
So, the RX 7900 XT scores about 205,600 points in OpenCL, and the result in Vulkan is about 162,200 points.
In the first case, this is exactly the level of the GeForce RTX 3090, in the second, the new AMD is confidently ahead of the more expensive RTX 4080 by $ 300.
If we talk about comparing the RX 7900 XT and XTX, the second one is about 10% faster. Actually, the price difference between them is almost the same, so the cards should be very close in terms of their profitability.
Recall that the price of the RX 7900 XT, according to available data, will compete with the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti. New AMD cards will be released on December 13th.
Not able to fully bypass the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, the RTX 4070 Ti graphics card will cost $ 900
It looks like the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti graphics card that came out of the rebranded RTX 4080 12GB will cost $900.
It is reported that this price has already been named to Nvidia partners. If the new product really costs $ 900, the RTX 4080 will not be able to get much cheaper. Recall, there are rumors that Nvidia will reduce the price of this adapter, but the card costs $1,200. Considering $900 for the RTX 4070 Ti, perhaps the RTX 4080 will drop in price by just $100. However, this is still just a rumour.
It’s also worth pointing out that if you’re looking solely at performance in TFLOPS, as it’s already known for the new card, the RTX 4070 Ti will outperform its older sister, offering 0.04459 TFLOPS per dollar versus 0.04065 TFLOPS per dollar for the RTX 4080. In comparison, the RTX 4090 scores as high as 0.05165.
In terms of actual performance, according to Nvidia’s own slides, the new product will perform on par with the RTX 3090 Ti or slightly weaker, but will outperform the latter when DLSS is activated.
As a reminder, new AMD graphics cards are also entering the market on December 13, and the RTX 4070 Ti will be a direct competitor for the Radeon RX 7900 XT.
