AMD investigates reports of abnormal Ryzen 7000 performance in some games on Windows 11 PCs
AMD has released a statement about abnormal performance variations in the Ryzen 7000 processors in some games when running Windows 11 compared to running Windows 10.The company itself noted that it has not yet registered any performance variations in some games depending on the operating system, although complaints do come in.Image source: Resul Kaya/unsplash.com \"We are currently investigating, but based on testing so far have not found a significant difference in gaming performance depending on the OS versions in different work scenarios and with different games,\" AMD reported.According to experts HotHardware portal, they have not observed any anomalies in reviews of Ryzen 9 7950X and 7900X, instead, experts noted the benefits of the new architecture Zen 4 compared to Zen 3.By the way, an interesting feature of these processors is that the second chiplet off (CCD - Core Chiplet Die) can even improve performance in some games.This difference is clearly demonstrated by the example of Metro Exodus, running on a PC with Ryzen 9 7950X running Windows 11 22H2.Image source: CapFrameXAccording to AMD, such things happen quite regularly and may indicate, for example, the need for software optimization.For a fresh platform, which is the Socket AM5, and the new architecture (Zen 4) it is normal to have some problems at first - the main thing is to have them solved later.\"Many factors affect gaming performance, including game engine, processor architecture, graphics gas pedal and memory choices.As new architectures come to market, there are often performance anomalies that must be addressed by the component vendor or game publisher.This is not a new or unexpected phenomenon,\" the company said.Additionally, AMD said that as anomalies are identified, the company will share information about them with ecosystem partners and game developers so that they can properly optimize their products.
GeForce RTX 4090 tested at 8K resolution - 520 FPS in Overwatch 2
GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card was tested in games at 8K resolution.For this purpose, YouTube channel The Tech Chap assembled a new computer based on Ryzen 9 7950X and flagship Samsung TV supporting the appropriate resolution - 7680 × 4320 pixels.Image source: YouTube / The Tech СharIt should be noted that when the flagship graphics card of last generation GeForce RTX 3090 was announced, NVIDIA has positioned it as \"the first solution for gaming in 8K\".However, two years after its release, displays with support for 8K resolution have still not conquered the market.Such solutions remain niche and very expensive.Most display manufacturers produce monitors with resolution up to 4K, sometimes there are 5K models.And 8K is found only in televisions, and they can be considered a rarity.But YouTube channel The Tech Chap decided to see how GeForce RTX 4090 copes with 8K.Test system was equipped with a flagship 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X on architecture Zen 4, motherboard ASUS ROG Maximus X670E Hero and 32 GB RAM standard DDR5-6200.The PC was connected to a 65-inch Samsung Neo QLED QN800B 8K TV for $3500. The graphics card performance was tested in today's demanding games such as Cyberpunk 2077, Flight Simulator, Forza Horizon 5 and others.In Cyberpunk 2077 flagship GeForce RTX 4090 provided 8K speed up to 65 frames per second, but only with activated AI scaling DLSS 3 - without it the game at this resolution did not go.In turn, GeForce RTX 3090 was able to provide only 28 FPS, also only with DLSS.True, the old flagship uses less advanced DLSS 2.1. In Microsoft Flight Simulator the result of GeForce RTX 4090 at 8K resolution was 81 frames per second.Also with activated AI scaling.In its turn RTX 3090 showed nearly twice less result - 46 FPS. In Forza Horizon 5 game the average performance of new flagship in 8K was 76 FPS without DLSS.Also the card was tested in Overwatch 2, where it gave 520 FPS.This is twice as much as the GeForce RTX 3090 at the same settings.DLSS was not used in this test as well. Call of Duty: Warzone and Crysis Remastered also took part in the tests.In the latter case DLSS and ray tracing were activated.GeForce RTX 4090 in Crysis Remastered at 8K resolution showed 65 FPS, and in CoD: Warzone - 117 FPS. Also recall that yesterday published a full review of the flagship graphics card GeForce RTX 4090.The main points from them can be found in a separate article.
Intel Arc A380 graphics card tested for compatibility with 50 games of different years - the result surpassed the expectations
German edition of PC Games Hardware managed to get hold of Intel Arc A380 graphics gas pedal and conducted its full-scale testing.However, journalists didn't focus on the graphics performance of this graphics card, but on its compatibility with popular games, having tested it in 50 projects released between 1999 and 2022.Image source: VideoCardzAt the moment, Intel graphics have serious problems with games using not the latest graphics API DirectX 11 and DirectX 9.As Intel itself said earlier, it's focusing on optimizing Arc graphics for games with Vulkan and DirectX 12.In other words, we should expect very mediocre performance from Arc cards in old gaming tittles.We should clarify that Intel didn't refuse to optimize old games on old APIs.The recently released Arc Graphics Driver 126.96.36.19976 Beta removes a large part of the problems with game compatibility and the functionality of the Arc Control software for managing Intel Arc graphics.However, the company still has a lot of problems and bugs related to its graphics card software to fix.PC Games Hardware notes that most of the games tested on the Arc A380 graphics card, including very old ones, were compatible with Arc graphics, which is a very good result, especially considering that Intel is a newcomer to the discrete graphics market.With problematic games, journalists noticed visual artifacts when using SSAO and HBAO+ anti-aliasing settings, texture problems and freezes.The only game out of 50 that refused to run on Arc A380 was Max Payne 2.This game uses a DirectX 8 API.A full list of tested games and information on their compatibility with the Arc A380 can be found in the table below. Green marked games that work without problems, yellow - bugs, red - critical errors.Source image: PC Games HardwareWhich writes portal VideoCardz, Intel will likely introduce a more productive graphics gas pedals Arc 7 series (A750 and A770) next month.These graphics cards can compete with the most popular models of NVIDIA and AMD current generation.However Intel solutions will not be able to compete with the flagships.Also not too good for Intel is the fact that these companies in the near future will present graphics cards on new architectures, which would complicate the Intel's position even more.
Intel has published tests of the Arc A750 graphics card in 48 games where it beats the GeForce RTX 3060
Intel has shared the performance of the Arc A750 desktop graphics gas pedal in several dozen games.The data was published on the official website.On average, the graphics card was 3-5% faster than the GeForce RTX 3060.Image source: IntelIntel has published an article and video on its website, which paid attention to the Arc A750 video card performance in games running on modern graphics APIs DirectX 12 and Vulkan.According to the company's representatives Ryan Shrout (Ryan Shrout) and Tom Petersen (Tom Petersen), the list of games for testing were projects that are popular on Steam, interesting to players and used by video card reviewers. Gameplay testing was conducted at 1080p and 1440p resolutions.In DirectX 12 games, at 1080p resolution and Ultra quality settings, Intel graphics card was on average 3% faster than GeForce RTX 3060, while in 1440p games at quality settings \"High\" it was 5% faster.In addition, in 1440p the Arc A750 delivered more than 60 frames per second in most selected games.In Vulkan games such as Rainbow Six Extraction, Dota 2 and Doom, the Intel graphics card also looks decent - its performance is on par with the competition.At the same time, performance at 1440p resolution was slightly higher than the GeForce RTX 3060, and at 1080p resolution slightly lower.Intel Arc A750 vs GeForce RTX 3060 in games 7tDzGdLLuqh9YodaEGpX26.jpg See all images (6) aaH62n9Hu2wJDJaoWfjKC6.jpg EMob52zb2YnKW8JpSkWm5.jpg rUzLcb8DWgCrMBcSRpm4f5.jpg WLy4FHtJZ7nv5m7SY2Bb66.jpg Xsy5Lkp6oj6skpKjm9yvu5.jpg See all images (6) Intel is still not disclosing Arc A750 specifications.The gas pedal probably has 24 Xe cores, 3072 shader blocks and 12 GB of GDDR6 memory with 192-bit bus support. Intel used EVGA's GeForce RTX 3060 XC Gaming in the comparison.This is one of the fastest versions of the GeForce RTX 3060 on the market.Its GPU runs at 1882 MHz.Both cards were tested as part of an Intel Core i9-12900K-based PC with 32GB (2x16GB) of DDR5-4800 (Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB DDR5-5200 CL38).These tests were done under Windows 11. Image source: VideoCardz Image source: VideoCardzIt should also be noted that Arc A750 tests used a pre-release video driver, while GeForce RTX 3060 used GeForce 516.59 WHQL driver.As entry-level Arc A380 reviews show, Intel's driver for Arc graphics cards still needs some serious tweaking.Intel admits that Arc graphics perform worse in games on older graphics APIs, so it chose only games running DirectX 12 and Vulkan for comparison.
Intel Arc A730M mobile graphics card is barely faster in games than GeForce RTX 3050
Despite the good performance of Intel Arc A730M mobile graphics card in 3DMark Time Spy synthetic test, where it performed even better than GeForce RTX 3070, in real games the Intel gas pedal was barely faster than mobile GeForce RTX 3050.One of the Chinese insiders has shared information about the new product performance.Image source: VideoCardzWeibo user with a nickname Golden Pig Upgrade has tested Intel Arc A730M in a number of games.These included Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, Metro Exodus and F1 2020.The tests were conducted in two resolutions.Unfortunately, the source did not specify whether the tests used Intel DTT (Dynamic Tuning Technology), which dynamically distributes power between the laptop's CPU and graphics processors.As we found out earlier, when testing the mobile Intel Arc A350M, this technology negatively affects performance, which can be attributed to a software flaw on the part of Intel. Intel Arc A730M in Metro Exodus at 1080p resolution.Source: Weibo Intel Arc A730M in Metro Exodus at 1440p.Source: WeboIn Metro Exodus, the Intel Arc A730M averaged 70fps at 1080p and 55fps at 1440p.High graphics settings were used in both cases.Such performance is higher than the GeForce RTX 2070, which shows 66 frames per second at 1080p resolution, but worse than the GeForce RTX 3060.The latter averages 80 frames per second at the same resolution and graphics settings. Intel Arc A730M in F1 2020 at 1080p resolution.Source: Weibo Intel Arc A730M in F1 2020 at 1440p.Source: WeiboIn F1 2020, the Intel card showed 123 frames per second at 1080p and 95 frames per second at 1440p.By comparison, the GeForce RTX 3050 averages 120 frames per second at 1080p resolution at high graphics settings. Intel Arc A730M in Assassin's Creed: Odyssey at 1080p.Source: Weibo Intel Arc A730M in Assassin's Creed: Odyssey at 1440p.Source: WeboIn Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, the Intel gas pedal averaged 38 (1080p) and 32 (1440p) frames per second.The source also notes that during the tests, almost all games saw short-term significant drops in the gas pedal performance to below 10 frames per second, which may indicate poor software optimization.According to Intel Arc Control Center, the Arc A730M graphics chip was running at 2050 MHz and consumed 92 watts of power.We should add, however, that these figures were observed when running the Furmark test, which doesn't exactly reflect the performance of video cards in real-world conditions. Intel Arc A730M.Intel Arc Control Center data.Source: WeboSo far, everything points to the Arc A730M's performance level being next to the GeForce RTX 3050 and GeForce RTX 3060.The non-optimized gaming performance of Arc graphics cards, as this is not the first such test shows, may be the main reason why Intel is in no hurry with the global release of its discrete graphics cards.
Youtube channel determined the point of buying the new RX 6750XT by comparing it in games with RTX 3070 and RX 6700 XT
advertisingA newcomer to the world of computers may wonder, Why does AMD team release AMD Radeon RX 6*50 XT line of graphics cards, if compared to previous Radeon RX 6*00 XT series it offers nothing but slight increase of GPU frequency and higher bandwidth of video memory? In addition, the new products have a higher price.Wouldn't it be easier to take a product from the old series and overclock it? No less interesting is the question of comparing Radeon RX 6750 XT in gaming applications with the competitor from the \"green\" on the example of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070, since the release of which has been more than a year and a half, which is a lot by computer standards.In the arisen questions we can help to understand the youtube-channel Benchmark, which has done significant work to compare the gaming performance of these graphics cards.Test system was based on the most \"powerful gaming\" processor from AMD - Ryzen 5800X3D, supported by 32 GB of RAM DDR4 with a frequency of 3200 MHz and timings CL14.Apart from 1080p and 1440p resolution, the authors were aiming for 4K resolution which is never achieved by modern video adapters.The comparison was conducted in 11 popular games.Let's see how it all turned out.At 1080p resolution Radeon RX 6750 XT surpasses its predecessor Radeon RX 6700 XT by 6% at 15% higher price.At the same time, the novelty goes almost on par with its \"green\" rival, slightly surpassing it in the minimum frame.It is worth noting that the recommended price (however ridiculous this word combination may seem these days) GeForce RTX 3070 was set at $500, which is $50 less than the RX 6750 XT.But inflation, the semiconductor crisis and the lack of retail video cards at recommended prices, as a phenomenon, do not allow at this stage of testing to set these figures as determinants of the buyer's choice.In 1440p resolution the picture does not undergo significant changes: Radeon RX 6750 XT looks at its younger sister Radeon RX 6700 XT with five percent feeling of superiority, going toe-to-toe with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070.At this stage it is time to recall the burning issue of choosing between Radeon RX 6750 XT and its predecessor Radeon RX 6700 XT.It is obvious that in this case everything is determined by the user's skill.An overclocker will only need to overclock Radeon RX 6700 XT to get the performance of RX 6750 XT.An inexperienced user with the skill of \"overclocking in a minute\" at the risk of having to study ZOPP and warranty regulations later, let him decide how important the additional 6% of the gaming performance is.Although on the surface is the opinion of their insignificance in real use.4K resolution shows that all of our designated participants are not fully designed for games in this resolution.And let RTX 3070 is a little ahead, but all video cards, such not cheap, give the average frame less than psychologically important mark of 60 fps.Here we have to either play with the settings or pay more money to electronics vendors for the model category above.As for the so-called \"utility index\", which determines the ratio of the cost per frame, then it is necessary to consider the western localization youtube channel Benchmark, in which the concept of accessibility is formed by slightly different rules.Plus this index is generated based on recommended prices, which, as we have already established with you, have long been based in the \"fantasy\" section.Nevertheless, even in such a scenario, the price of new Radeon RX 6750 XT does not withstand any criticism.She loses not only Radeon RX 6700 XT and GeForce RTX 3070, but even more productive Radeon RX 6800 XT, closely approaching the RTX 3080, which, as you know, she absolutely does not compete.Absolute leader of the theoretical index becomes videocard RTX 3060 Ti, which could become a bestseller, as in its time GTX 660, if not for its real price, determined by the impact of mining.Of course, the authors channel are not detached from reality and everything is understood, and therefore have repeated the calculation of utility index, but based on the real prices of graphics cards in Newegg.And here the situation changes dramatically.Radeon RX 6700 XT adapter takes the top line in the \"best choice\" category, and Radeon RX 6750 XT begins to feel more than comfortable, showing 26% more utility than RTX 3070.It remains to wait for the appearance of new Radeon RX 6750 XT in the Russian retail and draw the final conclusions.For the post rewardedThis material was written by a site visitor, and he was rewarded.
AMD will release a driver that will significantly boost the performance of its graphics cards in DX11 games
advertisement Different users have different opinions about who supports their products better - NVIDIA or AMD.Some believe that the advantage of drivers from the \"green\" is that they are less problematic and work here and now, while drivers from AMD take a long time to \"improve\".But perhaps both camps would agree that AMD's software support is longer lasting.With every new release of graphics card drivers AMD company strives to improve the gaming performance of their cards, not forgetting about seemingly obsolete models as well.The most vivid example, cited in heated debates is the comparison of performance of GeForce GTX 1060 and Radeon RX 580, when at the beginning the \"green\" product was ahead of the AMD product, and over time became even inferior to it.Yesterday was the launch of new Radeon RX 6950 / 6750 / 6650 XT graphics cards, for which AMD has timed the release of its new driver.At the same time a preview of the next May release was published which will give owners of \"red\" cards some nice surprises.First of all AMD will include a new version of Radeon Super Resolution (RSR 1.1) technology with manual sharpening filter support.The main difference between RSR technology and FSR is that RSR works in all games without requiring developer support.Additionally, a significant improvement in performance of AMD graphics cards in games with DirectX 11 is announced.The improvement could be anywhere from 3 to 17%.Below is a list of already tested games.An interesting point is that some games, not included in the list, show even more impressive results, up to 24%, which is already comparable to switching to a video card from the segment one step higher.The results in the shooter Crysis Remastered are quite revealing.The exact release date of the \"bonus\" driver is unknown, but presumably it will appear before the end of May.Source: VideocardzThe post is rewardedThis material was written by a site visitor, and it is rewarded.
