AnandTech reports Intel has published the 38th edition of its ISA Extensions Reference manual. Several things of note were found in the manual, including official confirmation of Alder Lake, a 10nm chip rumored to arrive in 2021. The manual also reveals the BFLOAT16 support will be continued in the upcoming Sapphire Rapids server line.
What Alder Lake (and Sapphire Rapids) gets for instructions includes Architectural LBRs (Last Branch Recording) in order to speed up branches, HLAT (Hypervisor-managed Linear Address Translation), which forces linear address translation, and SERIALIZE, which forces a command to go through a core with all the caches pre-flushed and waits for all buffered writes to have finished before starting. The LBR update helps with performance, the HLAT is primarily for Sapphire Rapids, and the SERIALIZE is to assist with recent security issues.

Twenty years ago, one of the most iconic names in the video card industry was 3dfx. The company was at the forefront of 3D acceleration but lost its edge in the late 1990s. NVIDIA gobbled up 3dfx in 2000 to gain access to the intellectual property (IP) but many enthusiast still have fond memories of 3dfx.

Now there's a 3dfx Voodoo product suggestion on LEGO's Ideas. This is a website from LEGO where fans can suggest ideas for future LEGO collectible sets. To be considered by LEGO, a product needs 10,000 votes. At the moment, the 3dfx Voodoo card has 1853 votes. It would be fun to see this enter production, but would you buy it?
3dfx may have vanished from the industry decades ago, but one creator has had the idea to bring the GPU back in Lego form. For those of you don’t remember, the 3dfx Voodoo was the first mainstream 3D accelerator for gaming systems. The Voodoo family implemented a simplified version of OpenGL that 3dfx called “Glide.” It wasn’t capable of displaying a 2D desktop — you actually connected the Voodoo or Voodoo 2 directly to your existing 2D GPU by an external monitor cable, then hooked your monitor to the Voodoo card.

VideoCardz reports NVIDIA is now allowing its AIBs to launch GeForce GTX 1650 video cards with GDDR6 memory. The site has details about two new GTX 1650 WindForce models from Gigabyte that feature 4GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 8Gbps.
No, this is not a joke. NVIDIA has given a green light to AIBs to launch GDDR6 and Turing based GeForce GTX 1650 graphics cards. The new model is not called the GTX 1650 Ti, although NVIDIA already has one for the mobile market. Instead, the new model with GDDR6 memory will carry the same name (literally) as its GDDR5-based brother. In fact, the only way to distinguish the cards is to look at the packaging for GDDR6 memory information...

Intel's Kaby Lake-G was an interesting experiment. This unique 14nm SoC from Intel combined a Kaby Lake processor with AMD Vega integrated graphics. Unfortunately, the chip didn't see a whole lot of graphics driver updates. Tom's Hardware writes that after 12 months of no updates, Intel is now allowing customers to use AMD's mainline Radeon Software Adrenalin drivers. Kaby Lake-G was launched in 2017 and received its last Intel-validated graphics driver update in February 2019.
Twelve months after the last driver update, Intel quietly issued a new 'driver download' that went unnoticed, but it is merely a PDF that instructs users to head over to an AMD download portal for Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics drivers. The new drivers consist of AMD's mainline Adrenalin 2020 drivers, meaning that Hades Canyon NUC customers can install AMD's latest drivers, thus receiving important performance boosts for new games and the other advantages that come along with new drivers.

The move may seem small, but Intel effectively left its Hades Canyon customers stranded without up-to-date support for a year. That isn't a good look for a company that asks its customers to adopt radical new technologies on a fairly regular basis.

Aqua Computer introduces the ULTITUBE D5, a new glass reservoir with integrated RGB LED lighting. The company will start shipping them next week, pricing in the Aqua Computer webshop starts at 69.90EUR.
Aqua Computer, the German specialist for water cooling systems, introduces a new series of high-quality reservoirs made of glass.

The new ULTITUBE D5 series reservoirs are made in Germany from highly resistant borosilicate glass and offer the possibility to install a pump of the very popular D5 series.

For the first time it has been managed to produce glass reservoirs without additional, mostly irritating, rods or bars. The further components of the reservoirs are manufactured out of Delrin by using CNC machining in Aqua Computers own production facility.

Aqua Computer has gone one step further and integrated a washable stainless steel filter into the bottom of the reservoir. The filter element also provides optimal venting of the system.

A lot has been achieved for the usability of the product. The seals are designed as moulded parts that snap into place on the reservoir and thus always remain in the right place. In addition, the reservoir has an extremely large filling opening with a diameter of 55 mm. The pump can be mounted without tools by simply screwing it on by hand.

In the PRO version there is an optically invisible pressure equalization system integrated in the lid. In this version the reservoir also features an LED ring with digital LEDs. The ring can be connected to the RGBpx system from Aqua Computer or to many mainboards using an optional adapter plug.

The ULTITUBE D5 reservoirs are also available directly equipped with a D5 NEXT pump or a D5 PWM pump from Aqua Computer.

The reservoirs have a diameter of 65mm and are available in lengths of 100,150 and 200mm. The pricing starts at 69.90 Euro. Shipping starts within the next week.

    Spanish-language tech site HD Tecnologia got its hands on slides of Intel's Comet Lake-H presentation. Comet Lake-H is expected to be introduced on April 2, it's a new mobile lineup that promises "desktop caliber performance."
    This flagship CPU features 8 cores and 16 threads with a base clock of 2.4 GHz and turbo reaching 5.3 GHz (‘Thermal Velocity Boost’ is only available on Core i9 and Core i7 SKUs). This processor is also the only fully unlocked SKU in the series, which means it can be overclocked to some degree (which is always tricky on laptops due to thermal and power limitations).

    Reviews of systems with the AMD Ryzen 9 4900HS laptop processor went live yesterday and they show promising results. TechPowerUp has an overview and notes the chip from AMD, which has a 35W TDP, even beats the Intel Core i9-9880H processor, which has a 45W TDP (and 90W cTDP).

    In terms of gaming performance the results are an even split, but in most other applications the 4900HS is the clear winner:
    The 4900HS posts 11.9% higher CineBench R20 score (both chips are 8-core/16-thread) when the Intel chip is bolstered with 90 W cTDP, and a whopping 33% faster when the i9-9980H is at its stock settings, and 54% faster when its capped at 35 W cTDP. It also ends up over 150% faster than AMD's last fastest mobile processor, the 12 nm "Picasso" based Ryzen 7 3750H. The story repeats with CineBench R15 (4900H being 34% faster than stock i9-9880H), 18% faster at Handbrake HEVC, 25% faster at Blender "Classroom," and 35% faster at 7-Zip benchmark. The AMD chip lags behind by 12% in the less-parallelized Photoshop. On creativity apps that do scale with cores, such as Premiere "Warp Stabilizer 4K," the 4900HS is 12.6% faster. Gaming performance remains an even split between the two chips.
