Intel today unveiled its 13th generation Core processors.The new additions got more cores and higher clock frequencies, but at the same time some models became more expensive.Here we compare the prices of the new and old Intel processors and compare them to the AMD Ryzen 7000, which went on sale today.As it turned out, Intel raised the price only on the youngest of the presented new products, the Core i5 family processors.So, if the last generation Core i5-12600KF chip was priced at $264, the new Core i5-13600KF will cost $294.The difference is a bit more than 11%.The Core i5-13600K has also become more expensive and was priced at $319, whereas last year's Core i5-12600K received a price tag of $289 - the difference is a bit more than 10%.Intel ProcessorPrice, $ProcessorPrice, $Core i5-12600KF264Core i5-13600KF294Core i5-12600K289Core i5-13600K319Core i7-12700KF384Core i7-13700KF384Core i7-12700K409Core i7-13700K409Core i9-12900KF564Core i9- 13900KF564Core i9-12900K589Core i9-13900K589And other processors of the new generation kept the same prices, as their predecessors.The flagship Core i9-13900K, for example, costs $589, and the more affordable Core i7-13700K costs $409.AMD ProcessorPrice, $ProcessorPrice, $Ryzen 5 5600X299Ryzen 5 7600X299Ryzen 7 5800X449Ryzen 7 7700X399Ryzen 9 5900X549Ryzen 9 7900X549Ryzen 9 5950X799Ryzen 9 7950X699We note, Here we should also mention that AMD Ryzen 7000 series processors are on sale today compared to their predecessors, some models are even cheaper.The Ryzen 77700X is priced at $399, $50 less than the Ryzen 7 5800X at the start of sales.And the flagship Ryzen 9 7950X is even cheaper by $100 compared to its predecessor, to $699.
Analysts predict that by early 2023 the gap in the price of DDR4- and DDR5-memory will become insignificant
Contract prices for DDR5, which only for July decreased by 20%, will continue to fall until the end of this year, reports DigiTimes, citing sources related to the memory module manufacturers.They believe that by the end of the current - early next year, prices will approach the optimal point (sweet spot), when the gap between chips DDR5 and DDR4 leveled.Image source: skhynix.comSources of Taiwan resource note that the supply of DDR5 chips in 2021 were limited due to lack of other components - logic and circuit power management, which caused a significant rise in price next-generation memory modules.Now we see the reverse processes: the reduction of the components deficit and the low consumer demand for PCs and consumer electronics, amid negative macroeconomic factors in the 2nd quarter of 2022 led to a decrease in contract prices for DDR5 chips - in July alone they fell in price by 10-15% compared to DDR4.Therefore, the expansion of production will be gradual, given the threats posed by stagnant demand.All of these processes will certainly have a beneficial effect on the DRAM market for the consumer in 2023.However, the spread of DDR5 in the PC segment is expected to be slower than in the areas of industrial and server equipment - prices will still be considered high.
NVIDIA has \"always believed\" that a graphics card should, on average, cost the same as a gaming console
NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang made an interesting point: In his opinion, a GeForce graphics card \"is essentially a gaming console inside your PC.That is, the manufacturer considers its products as the most important part of the computer and the component that has the greatest impact on the gaming process.A direct consequence of this thesis turns out to be the company's pricing policy.Image source: nvidia.com \"We have always believed that the average selling price (ASP) of GeForce should be close to the average selling price of a gaming console.So now it should be $500 or so,\" Mr.Huang said during the company's financial results report.In other words, if people are willing to spend an impressive amount of money on the Xbox, they can also pay very tangible money for a video card for the PC.As the practice of the last two years has shown, NVIDIA is talking about this without any disconnect from reality: for various reasons, consoles and graphics cards, primarily flagship, sold for many times more than the recommended prices and remained in short supply.On the other hand, we would not want the mass, best-selling graphics cards to cost beyond the ability to compete with PlayStation and Xbox last generation.Taking into account the vagaries of modern pricing we can only hope that with the announcement of the new GeForce RTX 40-series models will come to the market at $300, able to offer more than the previous generation graphics cards.Unexpected company position Mr.Huang expressed in response to the question whether the current state of the cryptocurrency market will affect the average selling price of graphics cards.He admitted that prices could go down, but in the long run the trend still seems to be upward.And he suggested to be guided by the prices of game consoles.Just the day before Sony announced that the PlayStation 5 had to raise its price due to inflation.Fortunately, Microsoft is not yet ready to follow its competitor.
Estimated prices and specifications of AMD Ryzen 7000 next generation processors published
The Chinese website Mydrivers has shared with readers its view on prices and specifications of AMD Ryzen 7000 future desktop processors.It's worth mentioning right away that the information, of course, has no official confirmation.Moreover AMD company is free to change prices at any time, up to the moment of new products output, basing on market situation.So, Ryzen 9 7950X will be the flagship of the 5nm TSMC product line.It will replace the current leader Ryzen 9 5950X.The number of cores will still be 16 with multithreading support (32 threads) - these are the minimum expectations.In a more optimistic scenario, the number of cores/threads may increase to 24/48.At the same time, all cores will be full-fledged \"big cores\", without using big.LITTLE technology with a combination of big and small cores like Intel.The maximum frequency in auto overclocking mode can reach 5.4 GHz, which will make the novelty a real numerical monster of the desktop segment.Such a frequency does not seem to be something unattainable, because there are already engineering 8-core samples reaching 5.2 GHz.Consumption scheme should not go beyond the values of 105-170 W (basic and in auto overclocking mode).The price of such a heavy cruiser should be in the $900 range.This is $100 more than the Ryzen 9 5950X, as inflation and other components are taken into account.The flagship is followed by the Ryzen 9 7900X with a 12/24 or 16/32 scheme, depending on what the Ryzen 9 7950X will become.The maximum frequency will be 5.3 GHz, and the consumption is still the same 105-170W.The probable price is about $650.Next are the mass models Ryzen 7 7800X and Ryzen 5 7600X.The first will get 8 cores and 16 threads, a frequency of 5.2 GHz, an estimated thermal power of 105W and a price in the range of $500.The second should be the best budget gamer's choice when it comes to the new generation, with 6 cores and 12 threads under the hood.The frequency is 5.1 GHz, the power is 65 watts, and the price is around $350.Overall, the next generation will offer +500 MHz higher clock speeds for the same consumption package.Leaks attribute the new lineup to a significant double-digit increase in IPC.AMD will change socket to LGA type (AM5 LGA1718), but compatibility with old AM4 coolers will remain.We also expect DDR5-5200 memory support (DDR4 will most likely not be supported) with EXPO memory overclocking technology (similar to Intel XMP), increase to 28 PCIe 5.0 lanes, as well as \"native\" USB 4.0.There will be more lines for NVMe-accumulators, and more USB 3.2 ports.Besides, Zen4 processors are supposed to have iGPU on RDNA 2 architecture, that is so-called \"embedded\".AMD X670 chipset may be chiplet and is a bunch of two B650, made by 6nm TSMC technology.By all preliminary characteristics, the new generation of AMD desktop processors should be revolutionary.The post is rewardedThis material was written by a site visitor, and it is rewarded.
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.
