Fresh performance data of Intel Arc A580 desktop graphics card appeared in Ashes of the Singularity gaming test database.It's not the first time this model has been noted there.Last month the card was tested with graphic API Vulkan.In a fresh test, the novelty was tested using DirectX 11 and DirectX 12 graphics APIs.The results turned out to be ambiguous.Image source: IntelNow Intel has disclosed the technical specifications of the Arc A580.The gas pedal is built on the ACM-G10 graphics chip, which includes 24 Xe cores (3072 FP32 blocks), 24 ray tracing blocks, and 384 XMX matrix engines.The declared GPU frequency is 1700 MHz.It has 8 GB of GDDR6 memory with 16 GHz effective bandwidth, 256-bit bus bandwidth and 512 GB/s bandwidth.According to Intel, Arc Alchemist graphics cards are best optimized for DirectX 12 games, with Vulkan APIs offering slightly worse performance.Performance in games based on old DirectX 11 will be the worst.It is interesting that in recent gaming test Ashes of the Singularity our Arc A580 showed mediocre performance not only in DirectX 11 mode, but also with DirectX 12 API.Its performance was significantly worse than when using Vulkan API.In all cases the game test was run at 1080p resolution with average image quality settings.When using Vulkan, the card scored 9,300 points with an average frame rate of 95 FPS.Intel Arc A580 in Vulkin API modeThe card scored 2,800 points in DirectX 11 mode with an average frame rate of 30.6 FPS.In DirectX 12 mode, the card scored 6,600 points and 68.6 FPS.It is interesting that in DX11/12 mode it was worse than entry level Arc A380.Intel Arc A580 in DirectX 11 API modeIntel Arc A580 in DirectX12 modeThe below is a performance comparison table with other graphics cards provided by Tom's Hardware.There may be several reasons for such strange results.Maybe the CPU in the system used to test the Arc A580 is so severely limiting the performance that the GPU, which should be three times faster than the Arc A380, ends up being slower.Another reason could be the lack of optimization of its graphics driver or the disabled Resizable BAR (ReBAR) feature, without which the performance of Arc video cards drops significantly.Another assumption is that the Arc A580 tested, which for some reason has an RI suffix in its name, is a mobile version of a power-limited graphics card.It's also possible that it's not a full-fledged desktop Arc A580, and someone tricked the test into mistaking another graphics card for a desktop model.
Ryzen 7 7700X engineering sample was up to 33% faster than Ryzen 7 5800X in Cinebench R20 test
Chinese tech blogger Extreme Player has shared performance data about AMD Ryzen 7 7700X eight-core processor engineering sample, demonstrated in Cinebench R20 synthetic test.The chip was up to 33% faster than the Ryzen 7 5800X model on the still current Zen 3 architecture.Image source: ExtremePlayerIn Cinebench R20 engineering sample Ryzen 7 7700X, running at 4.5 GHz, scored 773 and 7701 points respectively in single-threaded and multi-threaded tests.In the former, this is 23% more than the eight-core Ryzen 7 5800X, and in the latter, 33% more.In single-threaded performance engineering sample Ryzen 7 7700X surpassed even the current flagship Ryzen 9 5950X - the difference is 19% in favor of news.From earlier leaks we know that the engineering sample of 16-core Intel Core i7-13700K future series processors Raptor Lake scored 814 points in single-threaded test Cinebench R20.In turn, multi-threaded performance of the upcoming Intel novelty is estimated to score 11 243 points in the same test.This is 46% higher than the result of Ryzen 7 7700X engineering sample.

Intel's Arc A580 desktop graphics card made its first mark in the Ashes of the Singularity gaming test
Test data on the Intel Arc A580 desktop graphics gas pedal appeared in the Ashes of the Singularity gaming test database.This model is the first time since the Arc A-series graphics were announced that it's been featured in any test, and there's virtually nothing known about the card in general.Now, all of Intel's attention is focused on the higher-end Arc A7 series gas pedals, and so far only the entry-level model Arc A380 has been found on sale.Image source: IntelThe Arc A580 was tested in Ashes of the Singularity game in the company of an engineering sample of Intel's 16-core processor.Nothing is known about the latter either.It could belong to any of the company's chip series, not necessarily the upcoming Raptor Lake.It is very likely that in this case we are talking about the test platform of Intel itself or one of its partners.Gaming test was run at 1080p resolution with medium image quality settings.The card scored 9300 points with an average frame rate of 95 FPS.While Ashes of the Singularity is one of the first games to support DirectX 12, the Arc A580 was tested using the Vulkan API. Source image: Ashes of the SingularityFor comparison, a GeForce RTX 3060 gas pedal shows between 75 and 95 fps in similar conditions.The test Ashes of the Singularity does not show complete information about the system, so it is unknown how much memory the Arc A580 has and whether the ReBAR function was active at the time of testing.Image source: VideoCardzIt should be noted that the Arc A580 is unlikely to compete with the GeForce RTX 3060.Intel itself has officially announced that this role is reserved for the older Arc A750.Features of the Arc A580 are not yet known.According to rumors, it may have 16 Xe cores and 8 GB of GDDR6 memory.
Engineering sample of Intel Core i9-13900K made its mark in Geekbench test at 5.5-5.7GHz
Engineering sample of future flagship 24-core Intel Core i9-13900K processor again marked in Geekbench synthetic test database.Chip performance was tested on ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 Extreme motherboard.This board is equipped with LGA 1700 socket, and ASUS has recently released a new version of BIOS, which brings support for Raptor Lake processors.At the same time, one of the processor cores automatically overclocked to 5.7 GHz.Note that with the same range of clock speeds work engineering samples Raptor Lake 3rd generation (Raptor Lake ES3), which is already available in China through various closed channels.Image source: GeekbanenchThe chip includes eight high-performance cores Raptor Cove with Hyper-Threading technology and 16 Gracemont power efficient cores without support for this technology.According to Geekbench description, the processor has 36 MB of L3 cache memory.But the amount of L2 cache is incorrect - Geekbench only shows the cache of cores of the same type, and in fact the Core i9-13900K will have a total of 32 MB of L2 cache.Image source: GeekbenchThere were some problems with the system timers during the engineering sample test, so the chip performance data would be unfair to compare with any other CPU already available in the market.Image source: GeekbenchIf we ignore this point, the Core i9-13900K engineering sample was 7 percent faster in the single-core test and 37 percent faster in the multi-core test compared to the Core i9-12900K in the same Geekbench 5 tests.Single and multi-threaded performance of Intel and AMD processors in Geekbench 5.Image source: WccftechThe Raptor Lake series processors are expected to debut this October.Intel is very likely to start first with K-versions of chips with an unlocked multiplier and manual overclocking capability.Processors not intended for overclocking, in turn, will appear on the market a little later.
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.
New AMD Radeon RX 6650 XT fights in gaming tests with NVIDIA RTX 3060
The famous Youtube channel Hardware Unboxed continues to delight its subscribers with timely and relevant reviews of computer components.Radeon RX 6650 XT video card is the latest product from AMD.We decided to compare RX 6650 XT gaming performance with its predecessor RX 6600 XT and its competitor from \"green\" companies NVIDIA RTX 3060.AMD Radeon RX 6650 XT has recommended price of $399 USD which is $20 higher than RX 6600 XT.GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card was once priced at $330.For Russian retailers specified manufacturer prices for a long time have no practical application, but with their help determined by the so-called utility index, that is, the ratio of performance to price.Testing was carried out in ten popular games, resolutions 1080p and 1440p, for gaming in which designed these graphics gas pedals.The system was based on a fresh Ryzen 5800X3D processor with 32 GB of \"RAM\" running at 3200 MHz with CL14 timings.According to the comparison results, in 1080p resolution new Radeon RX 6650 XT has surpassed its predecessor RX 6600 XT by 6%, which is comparable to the increase t ` price by 5%, but the \"green\" competitor RTX 3060 she managed to beat by an impressive 15%.Nevertheless, the authors note that the list of 10 games is limited, and when comparing adapters in a larger number of projects Radeon RX 6650 XT win may not look so convincing, especially if you consider the titles with ray tracing support and greater optimization for graphics cards NVIDIA.Despite this, in terms of utility index the novelty is ahead of both accentuated rivals.In 1440p resolution the picture looks similar, with a slight decrease in superiority over RTX 3060 to 12%.At that in terms of price per frame Radeon RX 6650 XT is still the most attractive purchase compared to NVIDIA product.For post rewardedThis material is written by site visitor and it is rewarded.
