Why 4 GB of memory in a new graphics card is good, and why the unusual Ryzen 7 5800X3D will be one of a kind. AMD shared new information

Published

on

The head of the gaming division of AMD, Frank Azor (Frank Azor) in a fresh interview explained some of the not very clear moments of the past announcement of the company.

First, he explained why the new Radeon RX 6500 XT has only 4 GB of memory, despite the fact that before that, within the RX 6000 line, the company tried to offer more memory than competing adapters. There were two reasons. First, memory is expensive these days, and AMD had to reduce its size to fit within the recommended $ 200. True, the realities of the market are such that the $ 200 recommended price does not matter. The second reason is miners. A card with 4 GB of memory and a 64-bit bus is simply useless for them. This could make the RX 6500 XT more affordable both in terms of the number of cards in retail and at real prices. In addition, Azor hinted that a modification with 8 GB of memory may come out later.

The second question, which was not initially disclosed, concerns the announcement of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D. Recall that this is practically the same Ryzen 7 5800X, but with lower frequencies and an additional 64 MB of 3D V-Cache cache. The question is, this was the only such CPU that AMD spoke about. And it looks like, at least temporarily, it will really be unique. The company says it first wants to see how the market exemplifies 3D V-Cache technology itself, before expanding its line of similar CPUs. Considering that the discussed processor will be released in the spring, and the completely new Ryzen 7000 will be released in the second half of the year, it is likely that within the Ryzen 5000 line, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D model will remain the only one of its kind. And the choice towards the Ryzen 7 5800X, as a basis, fell because AMD considers it to be the optimal gaming processor.

Azor also spoke a little about the AM5 platform, which will debut with the Ryzen 7000 in the second half of the year. Azor made no direct promises, but hinted that AM5 could become as long-lasting platform as AM4.

AMD Desktop Processor Roadmap Leak Confirms Ryzen 7000 X3D Series Plans

AMD Desktop Processor Roadmap Leak Confirms Ryzen 7000 X3D Series

A supposedly “roadmap” has appeared on the network that shows AMD’s plans for the 2022-2023 Ryzen processor line. And so there are many interesting things.

AMD Desktop Processor Roadmap Leak Confirms Ryzen 7000 X3D Series Plans

First, the Ryzen Threadripper 5000 line will not be replaced until the end of 2023, although a more powerful version is expected after that. Secondly, AMD will continue to sell the Ryzen 5000 series along with the Ryzen 7000 this year and into 2023. The most interesting thing is that there will still be a line of processors with 3D V-Cache memory, they are marked with X3D indexes.

Additionally, AMD’s Ryzen G-Series should also get an update next year, most likely in the form of the Ryzen 7000G series. This part of the image is cropped, but there is clearly not an empty space. Their characteristics have not yet been announced, but it seems that these processors will receive more powerful video chips than the 5000G and 7000 series have. Thus, AMD is clearly not saying goodbye to socket AM4. After all, 4000G and 5000G are announced as solutions until the end of 2023.

It was previously reported that the Ryzen 7000 can be made much colder by scalping it.

Will it be better than the GeForce RTX 3050? Intel unveils Arc A750 graphics card for $290

Will it be better than the GeForce RTX 3050 Intel

For some reason, Intel waited a couple of days and introduced another video card.

Will it be better than the GeForce RTX 3050?  Intel unveils Arc A750 graphics card for $290

The Arc A750 will go on sale on October 12, just like the Arc A770. Technically, this is a pre-flagship solution. Instead of 32 Xe cores, the new products have 28 of them, that is, 3584 FP32 blocks. The adapter also has 8 GB of GDDR6 memory with a frequency of 16 GHz, a 256-bit bus and a TDP of 225 watts. That is, the novelty as a whole is very similar to the A770.

And the price is close. If for the younger Arc A770 they ask for $ 330, then the A750 is priced at $ 290. Thus, the card is 12% cheaper with a 12% lower number of computing units.

Intel also clarified the Arc A770. Contrary to previous reports, the 8GB version will cost $330, while the 16GB version will cost $350. More precisely, for this money, a Limited Edition reference card will be sold, which will only be available with 16 GB.

Intel itself says that the Arc A750 is 53% superior to the GeForce RTX 3060 in terms of price and performance, but at one time Intel said something similar about the Arc A380, but in the end it turned out that there are nuances. In addition, here the company mentions that they are charging an RTX 3060 with a price of $418, which is allegedly the average price of this card on the NewEgg network on September 22. However, there is an RTX 3060 on the same network for $370-$400, so the Intel comparison should be treated with caution.

As for direct price competitors for the A750, according to the same NewEgg network, these are the GeForce RTX 3050 and Radeon RX 6600.

Ryzen 7000 can be made much colder, but it’s risky. Processor needs to be scalped

Ryzen 7000 can be made much colder but its risky

The Ryzen 7000 processors proved to be very productive, but also very hot. Even with liquid cooling systems, temperatures cannot be called low. But there is a way out, even if it is not suitable for everyone.

Ryzen 7000 can be made much colder, but it's risky.  Processor needs to be scalped

The well-known overclocker Der8auer decided to check how much the situation would improve if the cover was removed from the Ryzen 9 7900X. It turned out that this is a very effective way.

When using liquid CO and overclocking to 5.5 GHz on all cores, the temperature was only 70 degrees versus 90 degrees for a conventional CPU with less overclocking. Unfortunately, there are no results without overclocking, but the temperatures will obviously be even lower, that is, already quite within the usual values ​​for most modern processors.

Der8auer used a prototype tool to remove the cover, but a production model should be available later. Of course, this solution is not suitable for everyone, because, firstly, it is risky, and secondly, it deprives the owner of the processor warranty. However, this is still an effective option and it must be borne in mind.
