Why then is the GPU in the Exynos 2200 so weak? Xclipse 920 is probably a direct relative of the Steam Deck console graphics core

Samsung smartphones on SoC Exynos 2200 came out, and it became clear that it really is not able to fully compete with the top new products from Qualcomm and MediaTek, and sometimes even manages to yield to its own predecessor. The main culprit is the Xclipse 920 GPU.

Why then is the GPU in the Exynos 2200 so weak?  Xclipse 920 is probably a direct relative of the Steam Deck console graphics core

This GPU may be the closest relative of the GPU in the Steam Deck console, new data has revealed. The Exynos 2200 GPU goes by several names: Voyager, Mariner, RDNA2 GPU, or officially Xclipse 920. But the core data indicates that it is also referred to as MGFX0 (M0). And more importantly, the chip data is linked to the Van Gogh Lite firmware. AMD Van Gogh is the code name for the APU on the Steam Deck. So it’s likely that the Xclipse 920 is a stripped-down version of the GPU in the Van Gogh APU that serves as the heart of Valve’s console.

Recall that the console GPU has 512 stream processors, while the Exynos 2200 has 384. But we also know that the Steam Deck is the most powerful solution on the market in its class, which cannot be said for sure about the Exynos 2200.

The exact reasons are still unknown. Many are inclined to believe that the reason for this is the too low frequency of the GPU in the SoC. The RDNA 2 architecture was originally designed with an eye on maximum power efficiency at very high frequencies. In this case, the frequency of Xclipse 920 is 1300 MHz. But the bottom line is that the GPU frequency in Steam Deck lies in the range of 1000-1600 MHz, which is also very low for RDNA 2. But the console looks great.

By the way, the source also talks about the MGFX1 (M1) GPU, which under the name Xclipse 930 may appear in the Exynos 2300. That is, Samsung will continue to use AMD graphics cores. But for MGFX1, the number of stream processors is listed as 512.

Sony will not let you enjoy the old games to

As part of the updated subscription service Sony PS Plus will be available, including projects for PS3. But due to the very specific architecture of the processor of this console, the games will be available in the cloud service.

Sony will not let you enjoy the old games to the fullest.  PS3 projects within PS Plus will be released without add-ons

And now it became known that such games, unfortunately, will not support add-ons. DLC may someday be added, but at first you definitely shouldn’t expect them.

For example, Asura’s Wrath, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, Crash Commando, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West and a number of other games received various kinds of add-ons at one time, for some projects there were a lot of such DLCs. But within the framework of PS Plus, it will not be possible to try them out. The source also publishes a list of PS3 games, but we published them a week ago, when Sony itself did this.

As a reminder, today we also learned that some classic games will work even worse on the new consoles than on the original PlayStation.

Some classic games on the PlayStation 5 will not work

Yesterday we got our first look at the classic PlayStation game available as part of the new PS Plus subscription for PlayStation 5 owners. Today, new details about such games have appeared.

Some classic games on the PlayStation 5 will not work as well as on the original console.  All because of the PAL standard

In particular, it turned out that a number of games work with a frame rate of only 50 Hz and according to the PAL standard. For example, this applies to Ape Escape. At the same time, the original game on the PlayStation worked according to the NTSC standard, which makes the gameplay feel smoother.

We know for sure that not all classic PS Plus games will work on PAL. For example, Siphon Filter and Abe’s Odyssey work according to the NTSC standard. However, unfortunately, all Sony Japan Studio games will be the same as Ape Escape.

A complete list of all the games available on PS Plus has also appeared, but for now only for the Asian region. You can get acquainted with them at this link, but in other regions the list may be slightly different.

Now the SSD in PlayStation 5 seems to be slow

It’s been literally a year and a half since the launch of the PlayStation 5, which, among other things, impressed with its ultra-fast SSD. But a lot has changed in the market in a year and a half.

Now the SSD in PlayStation 5 seems to be slow.  Apacer showed drives with speeds up to 13,000 MB / s

Apacer showcases next-generation PCIe 5.0 SSDs with read/write speeds of 13,000 and 12,000 MB/s respectively!

Recall that the Sony console has an SSD with a speed of about 7000 MB / s, that is, the new Apacer will be almost twice as fast.

The Apacer AS2280F5 drive does not stand out in any way. It has a heat sink, but overall it’s just an SSD. There is also the Zadak TWSG5 model, which is distinguished by the addition of graphene and aluminum to the cooling system.

There are no other details yet. In particular, the company does not name the controller used, but it could be the Phison E20.
