Intel offering ARC Alchemist GPU to AIB partners

9 hours ago
Intel logo
Japanese tech site ASCII had an interview with Intel graphics chief Raja Koduri. VideoCardz offers some of the highlights. First up, Koduri reveals Intel picked the TSMC N6 process node for the Xe-HPG-based ARC Alchemist GPUs because the Intel 7 did not have sufficient production capacity yet.

Probably the most interesting thing is that Koduri reaffirmed that there will be custom-design versions of the ARC series. Intel is reportedly already sampling the ARC Alchemist to board partners.
By far the most interesting part of the interview is the question about custom card launch based on Arc Alchemist GPUs. As revealed earlier through leaks, Intel is already offering its reference design to board partners. Intel had actually confirmed this leak during its drone show. Exactly the same design, which was first shown by Moore’s Law is Dead, is now expected to be offered to board partners who may or may not use it for their cards, alternatively, they might want to adopt it for their own semi-custom versions.

Partners and I think there will be a differentiation of ODM, and that will lead to the ultimate customer interest — Raja Koduri
ARC Alchemist is expected to hit the market in Q1 2022.

Video card prices going up again

9 hours ago
German tech site 3DCenter updated its AMD and NVIDIA GPU retail price trend tracker and it's not good news. While prices are still down significantly versus the peak seen around May 2021, they've been increasing again for several months now. Availability is getting worse and this is resulting in higher prices. In Germany and Austria, the price of Ampere and RDNA2-based video cards is now about 8 percent higher than in August 2021.

VideoCardz reports AMD's Radeon RX 6600 XT is now inching closer towards the 600EUR mark, far higher than the official MSRP of 379EUR. The site also writes that NVIDIA is not even mentioning the GeForce RTX 3050 to its AIB partners anymore so it seems that model won't make it to the market.
A noticeable point in the graphics card market in September 2021 is the end of the attempt to keep the Radeon RX 6600 XT close to 500 euros – the card is currently tending towards 600 euros and could end up there quickly if availability continues. This means that even the Radeon RX 6600 XT, with its already high list price, now also has a price exaggeration of at least + 45%. — 3DCenter

Lian Li Q58 ITX case supports 280mm radiator

3 days ago
Lian Li has a new case for the small form factor market. The Q58 is a 14.5-liter ITX chassis that aims to provide maximum expansion room. The interior supports both SFX and ATX form factor power supplies, an up to 280mm watercooling radiator, and a triple-slot video card of up to 320mm long.

In the US, pricing starts at $129.99 for the black Q58. Lian Li charges an extra $10 for the white variant. The base models feature a PCI Express 3.0 riser card. For an extra $20, Lian Li offers Q58 cases with PCI Express 4.0 riser card.
LIAN LI Industrial Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of chassis and PC accessories, announces a new addition to its small form factor line up with the Q58, a compact case with enormous versatility. Available in black or white, the Q58 features split side panels made of mesh and tempered glass which can be interchanged to the user’s look and cooling preference. At only 14.5 liters, the Q58 is compatible with an impressive list of hardware, with support for SFX and ATX power supplies, up to 280 radiators, 320mm long and triple slot thick graphics cards, and still enough room for 4 SSDs.

14.5L ITX Case with Enormous Versatility
The Q58 comes equipped with the necessary mounting brackets for both SFX and ATX power supplies, providing versatile cooling compatibility for powerful components. In both SFX and ATX mode, the Q58 supports Mini-ITX motherboards and large triple-slot GPUs of 320mm in length. In SFX mode, the Q58 can support up to two 120/140mm fans or 240/280 radiator at the top and a 120mm fan at the bottom. In ATX mode, the Q58’s cooling compatibility is reduced to one 120/140 fan/radiator at the top and a 120mm fan at the bottom. All fan power and LED cables can be connected with a 5v addressable RGB and PWM hub located at the rear of the case.
To alleviate the lack of onboard storage of Mini-ITX motherboards, the Q58 can support up to four SSDs, or three SSDs and one HDD. The first mount is a toolless and hot-swappable SD card style bay at the front of the case. While one SSD can be mounted behind the motherboard tray in SFX PSU mode, and another one at the bottom of the case in place of the 120mm fan in both SFX and ATX PSU mode, the top of the case fan/radiator bracket can also be fitted with a storage expansion bracket to hold either a 2.5” SSD or a 3.5” HDD.

Stylish Yet Functional
The black Q58 sports a unique look with a dual-tone finish aluminum front panel, while the white version features a minimalist all-white front panel, a white silkscreen on the glass panels, and silver thumb screws to offer a harmonious look. Both the right and left sides of the Q58 are split with a bottom fine mesh panel and dark tinted tempered glass panel (black version only, the tempered glass panel on the white version is clear). All four panels are removable for easy access to the inside of the case and interchangeable to change the look and performance of the case. Users can decide whether they want an all-mesh side for better airflow or all glass to better display the hardware.

Additional Accessories
A dual-LED strip kit, available in black, white, and sold separately as an additional accessory, can be attached to the top and bottom of the right and left side panels to complement the look of the case. In addition, users can decide to change their Q58 tempered glass side panels to mesh with the Q58 Mesh Kit, available in black and white.

4 days ago
INTC logo
Phoronix discovered Intel is working on a new CPU firmware update mechanism that will not require a reboot. The feature is primarily aimed at the server market, the intended purpose seems to be to prevent downtime of servers. Presumably, the Xeon Scalable "Sapphire Rapids" processors will be the first to support it. It's unknown whether this feature is coming to the consumer market too.
"Intel Seamless Update" is a forthcoming feature for Intel platforms seemingly first being exposed by their new Linux kernel patches working on the functionality... Intel is working on being able to carry out system firmware updates such as UEFI updates but doing so at run-time and being able to avoid the reboot in the process.

Intel Seamless Update is targeting customers that have high service level agreements (SLAs) around downtime. With system firmware updates generally requiring a reboot and that can take down services for several minutes and thus potentially impact any SLA or otherwise just inconvenience users of those services, Intel Seamless Update is their forthcoming approach for being able to handle it during run-time. Such firmware updates could be motivated by bug fixes, security fixes, or performance enhancements.

    CHERRY MX 10.0N RGB low-profile keyboard is just 22mm tall

    6 days ago
    Cherry cooked up an ultra-low profile mechanical keyboard with the CHERRY MX LOW PROFILE RGB SPEED switches. The board has per-key RGB LED illumination, a metal base, USB-C connectivity, and 8MB onboard memory. The keys lettering is laser etched and varnished, for high durability. Cherry says the MX 10.0N RGB will ship towards the end of this month. It has a MSRP of 149.99EUR.
    The CHERRY MX 10.0N RGB is a premium mechanical keyboard, yet as slim as modern office keyboards. This is made possible by the CHERRY MX LOW PROFILE RGB SPEED switches, which are exclusively manufactured in Germany. With an overall height of just 22 mm, you can type ergonomically and comfortably even without a palm rest. This slim elegance stands in stark contrast to the sturdy and solid metal housing. The fold-out base is also made entirely of aluminium. As a special feature, it folds back automatically as soon as you lift the keyboard. Whether with or without the stand, the keyboard is always stable and non-slip on the table.

    Powerful lighting
    All keys feature an RGB LED with up to 16.8 million colours. In addition to ready-made effects, you can also choose your own colours or illuminate individual keys. Choose from exciting colour effects or subtle single-colour illumination – all without installing any software. However, if you want to program even more individual effects, macros and professional settings, the CHERRY Utility Software is a powerful program available at no extra cost.

    "State of the art" electronics
    With 8 MB of integrated memory, the keyboard remembers your last settings – even if it has been unplugged in the meantime. Anti-ghosting prevents the occurrence of “ghost keys”, i.e. characters that are outputted when several keys are pressed simultaneously, even though they were not pressed at all. Thanks to full key rollover, you can press an unlimited number of keys simultaneously and no input is lost.

    Original CHERRY switches
    CHERRY MX LOW PROFILE RGB SPEED switches withstand more than 50 million presses per key. Despite the low height, you’ll immediately feel the inimitable MX feel with every keystroke. The switching characteristic is linear, i.e. without a click and without noticeable resistance. The switching point occurs already after a pre-travel of only one millimetre. It is not necessary to push through to the floor. This not only increases the reaction time but also ensures that every keystroke of the extra flat keys is registered. A decisive advantage, not only for gamers but also for everyday office use.

    A keyboard for all those who want "more"
    Thanks to its robust construction, extremely long durability and adjustable illumination, the MX 10.0N RGB is not only suitable for power users, gamers and enthusiasts but also for industrial applications and frequent typists. The low-profile mechanical keyboard fits anywhere, making it versatile.

  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 getting a 12GB re-release in January 2022?

    1 week ago
    NVDA logo
    Strange and potentially troubling news as VideoCardz picked up whispers that NVIDIA is working on a new variant of the GeForce RTX 2060. Allegedly, the green team is planning to launch a 12GB GDDR6 memory edition of the RTX 2060 in January 2022.

    The original RTX 2060 has 6GB and was launched in January 2019. The fact that NVIDIA is re-releasing a 12nm Turing GPU seems to hint that the firm expects that for the foreseeable future, the supply of current-generation mid-range cards will remain poor.
    According to our sources, NVIDIA is now planning an updated RTX 2060 GPU based on Turing architecture. A model known as PG161 would feature 12GB GDDR6 memory and the same TU106-300 GPU, except with a KX postfix. Thus, the card would only see a change in doubled memory capacity compared to RTX 2060 6GB which launched in January 2019. NVIDIA has allegedly told board partners to anticipate this card by the end of this year, possibly in January, depending on how quickly they can be manufactured.

    NVIDIA RTX 30 SUPER refresh to be revealed at CES 2022

    1 week ago
    NVDA logo
    Citing Twitter posts from Greymon55 and a video from RedGamingTech, VideoCardz provides an update about what to expect from NVIDIA in 2022. To make a long story short, it looks like a refresh of Ampere is in the cards for an early 2022 announcement. This will be the RTX 30 SUPER series, which is believed to feature a new RTX 3090 SUPER flagship as well as configurations based on the brand new GA103 GPU:
    NVIDIA RTX 30 SUPER refresh is now rumored to include GA103 GPU, a completely new Ampere processor that would give NVIDIA more options with configurations, especially for the mobile market. It may find its way to desktop series as well, but this has not been mentioned in any leak so far. The rumored RTX 3090 SUPER is more than likely to use GA102 GPU still, just with more cores and higher performance through optimizations.
    Additionally, there's some speculation that the RTX 40 "Lovelace" series may be launched around October 2022.
