The first smartphones with Wi-Fi 7 will be released this year - the standard itself has not yet been approved

The Wi-Fi 7 standard has not yet been approved, but devices with its support are already appearing on the market.
The first smartphones to support the new Wi-Fi will hit the market before the end of this year, all thanks to the new MediaTek Dimensity 9200 chip.
At the moment, the most progressive in this regard are considered gadgets and network equipment that support Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E.Image source: mediatek.comThe new high-performance mobile processor MediaTek Dimensity 9200, as compared to its predecessor demonstrates a 10% performance gain in multi-core loads, a 32% increase in performance on graphic tasks, as well as a decrease in energy consumption by 25%.But in terms of communication capabilities, one of the biggest advantages of the new single-chip platform is the new one.
In particular, the new standard offers connection speeds of up to 30 Gbit / s, compared with the current Wi-Fi 6E 4.8 Gbit / s, but the average speed of the Internet is now much lower.
Even Wi-Fi 6E, which involves using the 6 GHz band in addition to the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands already present in Wi-Fi 6, is not widespread.
However, smartphone owners on the Dimensity 9200 will be ready for Wi-Fi 7 networks when compatible hardware begins to appear.

Intel Core i9-13900K overclocked to 8812.85 MHz, an all-time CPU frequency record

The new Intel Core i9-13900K flagship processor went on sale today and set a new all-time overclocking record of 8.8 GHz.
Thus, the previous record, held for 8 years, was broken.
The new achievement probably won't last that long.Image source: HWBOT / ElmorThe previous world record for the highest CPU overclocking frequency was set in 2014.
That CPU turned out to be the AMD FX 8370, released the same year.
At that time, the chip was overclocked on a single core to a frequency of 8722.78 MHz.In all the time past, none of the presented Intel processors could not even come close to the previous record overclocking representative of the ancient AMD FX series.
That all changed with the release of the new Raptor Lake series processors, the flagship of which can automatically overclock up to 5,8 GHz on 1-2 cores out of the box.The leaks of recent months clearly hinted that the Core i9-13900K has a huge potential for overclocking.
It was obvious that the processor was capable of conquering higher clock frequencies.
But few expected that the new chip which just went on sale would immediately set a new world overclocking record.An enthusiast with the nickname Elmor from Sweden entered into the HWBOT database his result of an extreme overclocking experiment with the Core i9-13900K using liquid nitrogen.
The overclocker managed to overclock the chip on a single core to a frequency of 8812.85 MHz, which is an absolute world record.
The ASUS Z790 ROG Maximus APEX motherboard was also used in the test system.
Source image: CPU-Z ValidatorNo less interesting detail is the fact that the last 12 years in setting new world records win systems based on ASUS motherboards, which will be a separate reason to be proud of this Taiwanese manufacturer.

AMD processor plans: Ryzen 7000 with 3D cache will be released soon, and Threadripper and APU on Zen 4 - by the end of next year

AMD has shared with partners plans for desktop processors in 2022-2023 - a \"road map\", not intended for the public, appeared on the web.
Judging by the presented plan, AMD intends to continue releasing Ryzen 5000, 4000G and 5000G processors under Sunset AM4, and the powerful Ryzen Thredripper 5000 will not get successors until the end of 2023.AMD plans to introduce a new generation of high-performance desktop processors, which will replace the current Ryzen Threadripper 5000, only by the end of 2023.
Their name, as well as details about the characteristics, are not specified.
According to previous rumors, the new items were codenamed Storm Peak, and will probably go on sale as Ryzen Thredripper 7000.
We can assume that these processors will get Zen 4 cores, DDR5 and PCIe 5.0 support, and other Ryzen 7000 features.Also, AMD will continue to produce and sell Ryzen 5000 and 5000X3D processors in parallel with the new Ryzen 7000 at least until the end of 2023.
Also, AMD's slide confirms that the company is preparing Ryzen 7000X3D processors, which will be equipped with additional 3D V-Cache.
Note that Ryzen 7 5800X3D is currently the only desktop processor with extended 3D V-Cache.
And it is one of the company's fastest solutions for gaming, overtaking in some cases even the newly released Ryzen 7000.
So maybe the release of Ryzen 7000X3D processors will allow AMD to strengthen its position in the gaming area.Finally, AMD plans to update Ryzen G-series desktop hybrid processors, which feature quite productive integrated graphics, by the end of 2023.
They will probably join the Ryzen 7000G series and offer a combination of Zen 4 cores and RDNA 2 or RDNA 3 graphics.
At the same time AMD will continue to produce the current desktop hybrid Ryzen 4000G and 5000G processors, even after the release of new products.
Thus it turns out that at least until the end of 2023, the Socket AM4 platform will not lose relevance.

Intel made the Core i5-13600K 10% more expensive than its predecessor, but kept the prices of the new Core i7 and Core i9

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 unveiled the 13th generation Core processors - up to 24 cores and up to 5.8 GHz

Intel unveiled the 13th generation Core desktop processors, also known as Raptor Lake, as part of its Innovation event.
The new chips have a new architecture, more cores, and higher frequencies than their predecessors.
At the same time, some models went up in price.Raptor Lake processors, like their predecessors, use hybrid architecture, combining a powerful P-core and energy-efficient E-core.
The former are based on the new Raptor Cove architecture, and are distinguished by their increased L2 cache size.
Alder Lake has 1.25 Mbytes of L2 cache per core, while the new products have 2 Mbytes of L2 cache per core.
There are six models in total: the flagship Core i9-13900K and Core i9-13900KF, the average Core i7-13700K and Core i7-13700KF, as well as more affordable Core i5-13600K and Core i5-13600KF.
All of them have an unlocked multiplier and belong to the more advanced and expensive Intel solutions.
Recall that models with the suffix \"KF\" differ only in the absence of integrated graphics, but all other features they have identical to conventional processors.
Announcement of more affordable Raptor Lake processors, deprived of overclocking capabilities, is expected later.Senior Core i9-13900K has 24 cores and support 32 threads, as well as a total of 32 MB of L2 cache and 36 MB of L3 cache.
The eight cores here are high-performance Raptor Cove.
Their base frequency is 3.0 GHz, all together they can automatically overclock to 5.4 GHz, and the maximum frequency provided by the Thermal Velocity Boost technology for 1-2 cores is 5.8 GHz.
Another 16 cores of the flagship are energy-efficient Gracemont cores.
Their base frequency is 2.2 GHz, and the maximum frequency is 4.3 GHz.
The Core i7-13700K processor has eight P- and E-core each, which ultimately provides 24 threads.
The previous flagship Core i9-12900K has the same configuration.
The new Core i7 has a maximum clock speed of 5.4 GHz.
Finally, the Core i5-13600K has six P cores and eight E cores, offering 20 threads.
The clock speed of these processors can automatically go up to 5.1 GHz.
As for performance, the slide above shows Intel comparing the Core i9-13900K to its predecessor Core i9-12900K in games.
As you can see, in most projects, the newcomer is faster - in some places even by 20 percent or more.
Intel also compares the Core i9-13900K with AMD's old flagship Ryzen 9 5950X.
Intel's novelty in games delivers a higher average FPS by 6 to 58 percent, depending on the project.
In addition, Intel cites a comparison with the best gaming processor of the last generation competitor, Ryzen 7 5800X3D.
And in some games, the latter turns out to be faster or on par with the new Core i9-13900K! Intel also cites a comparison of the Core i9-13900K, Core i9-12900K and Ryzen 9 5950X in various professional applications from Adobe and Autodesk.
New Intel product outperforms old flagship AMD by 16 to 69%.Along with the new CPUs, Intel has also introduced new 700-series chipsets, and motherboard manufacturers will release new solutions based on them.
At the same Raptor Lake will be made in the same LGA 1700 chassis, as the current Alder Lake.
New products will be compatible with motherboards based on the Intel 600-series system logic.The most affordable of the currently available Raptor Lake - Core i5-13600KF - priced at $294.
By comparison, last year's Core i5-12600KF cost $264.
At the same time, the flagship Core i9-13900K costs the same as its predecessor - $589.
Sales of the Intel Core 13-generation processors will start on October 20.Also Intel has promised to release a limited series of processors next year, which can automatically overclock up to 6.0 GHz.
We are probably talking about the Core i9-13900KS.

Xeon E5-1660 v3 processor review from AliExpress: overclocking the Chinese way

Xeon E5-1660 v3 processor review from AliExpress: overclocking the Chinese way

Xeon E5-1660 v3 processor review from AliExpress: overclocking the Chinese way

Platforms based on obsolete Xeon processors and Chinese motherboards, which are sold in abundance on the well-known cross-border trade platform, is a truly immense topic.
We touched it twice and both times made sure that the server processors of 7-8 years ago do not look competitive at all against the background of modern CPUs.
However, as it turned out, this is far from being the end of the story.
Finally and irrevocably convince the adherents of old Xeon that the processors with microarchitectures which are four or five generations behind are not able to provide the level of performance typical of the current Core and Ryzen, we have not succeeded yet.
Every time the adherents of CPUs from the past begin to appeal to the fact that among numerous Xeon for LGA2011-3 platform we should choose some other model, so that it would be able to get on the same level with Core i5 and Ryzen 5, if not with Core i3 of Alder Lake generation by its performance.Frankly speaking, it becomes more and more difficult to believe it, because we tested quite a few different models of Xeon E5 v3 and v4 series.
Among them were both comparatively high-frequency and multicore variants, processors both on Haswell microarchitecture and on Broadwell, and all of them were notably losing in performance to modern low-cost CPUs.
However, so far we haven't tried to overclock server processors from AliExpress, and such a claim from fans of old Xeon really seems justified.
We did not want to leave anything unsaid in our tests, so we decided to return to the topic of Chinese server CPUs once again and see if overclocking can somehow help them.
At the first glance, overclocking of old Xeons does not seem to be useless: low clock frequency is really one of the factors restraining their gaming performance.
But it should be mentioned straight away that overclocking of old Xeon is not the same as overclocking of modern overclocking CPUs.
Firstly, most Xeon E5 v3 and v4 have a locked multiplier, which is logical for server processors.
Therefore, a special Xeon model will be required to increase the frequency above the default value.
Secondly, the majority of Chinese LGA2011-3 motherboards, which are currently available on the market, either do not support overclocking at all or support it rather conditionally.
So in addition to certain processor models, you also need a special board.
And only using a combination of the right equipment will it be possible to overclock Chinese Xeon.So to get an overclocking platform based on Xeon you will have to spend a bit more effort and money.
But we went all this way and are ready to tell you if the result is worth the money invested and if an overclocked Xeon from 8 years ago can be considered as the \"terror of modern CPUs\".⇡#Xeon with overclocking: what is itAlthough the statement that there were instances with an unlocked multiplier among previous generations of Xeons sounds rather strange, it is true.
Nowadays, Intel no longer allows such oversights, but in 2014, when Haswell-EP server processors appeared on the market, some of the released models did turn out to be capable of overclocking.
Apparently, this happened because Intel used the same semiconductor blanks for Xeon E5 v3, designed for single-processor configurations, and overclocking Core-X.
Obviously, the company expected that no one would think to overclock Xeon, but eventually this hidden feature became known, and now it is the source of inspiration for some fans of systems on old server CPUs.Based on the above, it is easy to conclude that overclocking may have the Xeon E5 1600 v3 series - they are maximum similar to the high-performance desktop models.
These processors are based on a simple semiconductor chip LCC (Low Core Count) and can not work in pairs (and fours), because they lack the interprocessor bus QPI.
And among the Xeon E5 1600 v3, you do find a few models with an unlocked multiplier: the six-core Xeon E5-1650 v3 and the eight-core Xeon E5-1660 v3 and E5-1680 v3.
In fact, these models are similar to well-known to enthusiasts Core i7-5930K and Core i7-5960X Extreme Edition with the only difference that they have a slightly different purpose, so they were released in much larger quantities, which are now sold on the Chinese aftermarket for relatively low prices.
For example, six-core Xeon E5-1650 v3 can be found on AliExpress for 4-4, 5 thousand rubles, Eight-core Xeon E5-1660 v3 sells for 6-7 thousand rubles, and Xeon E5-1680 v3 costs about 11.5-13 thousand rubles.
The most popular solution for budget builds in this range is Xeon E5-1650 v3, but we chose more expensive for detailed study

Tomorrow AMD will start selling Ryzen 7000-series processors, which not only bring the new Zen 4 architecture, but, more importantly, the new Socket AM5 platform.
And today specialized resources have published reviews of new processors and here we give only the main results of the tests.
In brief: the new products are much faster than their predecessors and can compete with Intel Alder Lake on an equal footing.
But will this be enough to compete with Raptor Lake in the future? But first, let us remind you that AMD has now introduced four new generation processors: the six-core Ryzen 5 7600X, the eight-core Ryzen 7 7700X, the 12-core Ryzen 9 7900X and the 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X flagship.
All of them use Zen 4 cores and are made according to the 5-nm process technology.
The new platform brings a LGA socket called Socket AM5, as well as support for PCI Express 5.0 and DDR5 memory.All reviewers note a significant increase in both single-core and multi-core performance compared to Ryzen 5000-series processors.
The processors in many (but not all) synthetic tests and applications Ryzen 9 7950X and Ryzen 9 7900X were faster than Core i9-12900K.
And in some places the current Intel flagship was even behind the Ryzen 7 7700X.
Synthetic test and applications 01.jpg See all pictures (12) 02.jpg 03.jpg 09.jpg 04.png 05.png 06.png 07.png 08.jpg 10.jpg 11.jpg 12.jpg See all pictures (12) On the other hand the junior Ryzen 5 7600X was ahead of Core i5-12600K without any surprises, but it did not make any bigger claims.
But, to be fair, we should note that in some applications even the flagship Ryzen 9 7950X was weaker than the Core i5-12600K.
But those were isolated cases.Games 01.jpg See all images (17) 02.jpg 03.jpg 04.jpg 05.jpg 06.jpg 07.jpg 08.jpg 09.jpg 10.jpg 11.jpg 12.jpg 13.jpg 14.jpg 15.jpg 16.jpg 17.jpg See all images (17) For gaming tests, you can see some differences between reviews.
So, according to The FPS Review, in most games Ryzen 9 7900X and Ryzen 5 7600X prove to be weaker than Alder Lake chips including Core i5-12600K, and also inferior to the \"gaming king of AMD\" of the last generation - Ryzen 7 5800X3D.
But the difference turns out to be quite insignificant.
Similar results show the novelties in the hands of TechPowerUp.
And Tom's Hardware reports that on average in games only overclocked to 5.1GHz Core i9-12900K chip is able to compete with the new AMD Ryzen 9 7950X and Ryzen 5 7600X.
With standard settings AMD novelties are faster.
Note also that not in all games the flagship is faster than other AMD novelties.
As you can see from the table below, Ryzen 7 7700X is better than flagship in many gaming tests from ComputerBase.
Even more interesting is power consumption of Ryzen 7000-series processors.
We should point out that new Ryzen 9 CPU's TDP has been increased to 170W, compared to 105W of their predecessors.
In turn, the new Ryzen 7 and 5 got TDP of just 105W.
As a result, at full load Ryzen 9 7950X consumes 247W, and Ryzen 7 7600X - only 99W.
In games, consumption is much lower on average.
In all cases, the new Ryzen consumes much less than competitors - the same Core i9-12900K is able to \"eat\" up to 285 watts.
But compared to its predecessors Ryzen 5000 series, consumption has increased.
At the same time Ryzen 7000 turned out to be quite hot.
At maximum load with a powerful air cooler Noctua NH-U14S Ryzen 5 7600X temperature was 88 °C, while Ryzen 7 7700X, Ryzen 9 7900X and Ryzen 9 7950X reached 94 °C.
At the same time in games the figures were more acceptable: 70, 71, 76 and 76 °C, respectively.
Here we should also add that automatic overclocking mechanisms, if the cooling system allows, are able to raise Ryzen 7000 frequency above standard values - for example, when cooling with a 280mm cooler I managed to achieve a peak frequency up to 5.85GHz.
But on average gaming frequencies keep around 5.5GHz, which is much higher than its predecessors.
In the end we would like to say that tomorrow Intel will unveil the Core 13th generation processors.
According to rumors and leaks, they may be much faster than the current models of the 12th generation.
So, the fact that AMD has caught up and slightly overtook (not everywhere) Intel Alder Lake processors may not be enough to successfully compete with the upcoming Raptor Lake.
Whether this is true, we will find out quite soon.
