    Listings in the product database of the ECC reveal that NVIDIA is working on yet another Turing-based card without RTX, the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti. This new model will offer a performance level between the GeForce GTX 1650 and GeForce GTX 1660, resulting in something that will be comparable with AMD's Radeon RX 580.

    For comparison, the GTX 1650 has a MSRP of $149 and the GeForce GTX 1660 costs $229. There's a pretty big gap between these two cards and the GTX 1660 is about 13 percent faster on average than the RX 580.

    The GTX 1650 Ti is believed to be based on a new TU117 variant with 1024 CUDA cores, 32 ROPs, and 64 TMUs, in combination with a 128-bit memory bus and 4GB GDDR5 memory clocked at 8000MHz. This results in memory bandwidth of 128GB/s.

    In terms of power efficiency, the difference between the GTX 1650 Ti and the RX 580 will be massive:
    Should NVIDIA be able to pull the feat of keeping the same 75W TDP between its Ti and non-Ti GTX 1650 (as it did with the GTX 1660), that could mean that a 75 W graphics card would be contending with AMD's 185W RX 580 - a mean, green feet in the power efficiency arena.

    Microsoft send out a warning that Windows 7 patch KB4493472 is causing trouble with various anti-virus tools. Distributed as part of this month's Patch Tuesday rollout, the update causes Avast, ArcaBit, Sophos, and Avira antivirus software to fail to start of become unresponsive. Microsoft is working on a fix an ETA is not known.

    In a separate statement, McAfee claims Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 devices may also be impacted.
    “Changes in the Windows April 2019 update for Client Server Runtime Subsystem (CSRSS) introduced a potential deadlock with ENS,” McAfee says. “McAfee is investigating this issue and will resolve it in a future update. A Proof of Concept (POC) build to test a fix is currently available. Escalate a Service Request to Technical Support to obtain the POC.”

    The workaround, according to the McAfee, is to “disable any access protection rule that protects a service.”

    TSMC CEO CC Wei said revenue of 7nm chips is expected to climb to over 25 percent of total wafer revenue in the second half of this year, a slight increase versus the 22 percent it currently accounts for. The increased demand is generated by a surge in smartphone sales, as well as the HPC, IoT and automotive markets.

    The foundry is now offering N7 Plus, which is 7nm with EUV, volume production, and intends to start risk production of 6nm (N6) chips in Q1 2020. The N6 node is an improvement of the N7 process, it has the same design rules and allows a 18 percent higher logic density.

    Wei also revealed that volume production of 5nm is scheduled for the first half of 2020. He expects the ramp of 5nm will be slower than that for 7nm:
    As for TSMC's 5nm process technology, development is well on track with customer tape-outs starting this quarter, Wei noted. The company expects to move the node to volume production in the first half of 2020. TSMC regards 5nm as "a large and long-lasting node," We added.

    Nevertheless, TSMC intends to be "more cautious" about its 5nm capacity ramp-up, Wei indicated. The initial ramp may be slower than that for the N7, but the foundry will manage to ramp up the N5 "quickly," Wei said.

    Taiwanese foundry TSMC said it expects its revenue to total $7.55 billion to $7.65 billion in Q2 2019, a drop of 2.6 percent to 3.9 percent versus the same period a year ago, and 6.4 percent to 7.8 percent more than the first quarter of the year.
    "While the economic factor and mobile product seasonality are still lingering as we move into second quarter, we believe we may have passed the bottom of the cycle of our business as we are seeing demand stabilizing," said company CFO Lora Ho.

    "In the first quarter, our business was impacted by the overall global economic condition which dampened the end market demand; customer inventory management to digest excess inventory in the semiconductor supply chain; and high-end mobile product seasonality," Ho continued. "Meanwhile, the net effect from the photoresist defect material incident also impacted our first quarter revenue by about 3.5%."
    TSMC also shared that 7nm now makes up 22 percent of its total wafer revenue, and that 16nm and more advanced accounted for 42 percent of the total.

    Tom's Hardware reports NVIDIA will release a new GeForce driver on April 23 that will add support for seven more G-Sync Compatible monitors.

    Here's a list of the screens that will be added next week:
  • Acer KG271 Bbmiipx;
  • Acer XF240H Bmjdpr
  • Acer XF270H Bbmiiprx
  • AOPEN 27HC1R Pbidpx
  • Asus VG248QG
  • Gigabyte Aorus AD27QD
  • NVIDIA automatically enables adaptive sync for displays on its G-Sync Compatible list. Other FreeSync panels may also work flawlessly, but if your screen isn't on the list you'll need to manually activate the feature.

    To support the rebuilding of the Notre-Dame de Paris, Ubisoft announces it will be donating 500 000EUR to aid the restoration of the cathedral. Furthermore, Ubisoft is temporarily giving away free copies of Assassin's Creed Unity. As you may have heard the past couple of days, this game features a very detailed 3D model of the Notre Dame.

    Details on how to get your free copy via Uplay can be found over here. This offer lasts until April 25th, 2019 at 09:00 (your local time) and the game will forever remain part of your Uplay games library.
    As the smoke clears on the events that unfolded on Monday at the Notre-Dame de Paris, we stand in solidarité with our fellow Parisians and everyone around the world moved by the devastation the fire caused. Notre-Dame is an integral part of Paris, a city to which we are deeply connected. Seeing the monument in peril like this affected us all.

    In light of Monday's events, we will be donating €500,000 to help with the restoration and reconstruction of the Cathedral. We encourage all of you who are interested to donate as well. In addition, we want to give everyone the chance to experience the majesty and beauty of Notre-Dame the best way we know how. For one week, we will be giving Assassin's Creed Unity away free on PC, for anyone who wants to enjoy it. You can download it now for Uplay PC here: http://assassinscreed.com/unity-notredame/

    When we created Assassin's Creed Unity, we developed an even closer connection with this incredible city and its landmarks – one of the most notable elements of the game was the extraordinary recreation of Notre-Dame.

    Video games can enable us to explore places in ways we never could have otherwise imagined. We hope, with this small gesture, we can provide everyone an opportunity to appreciate our virtual homage to this monumental piece of architecture.

    Will Intel not be making its own GPUs? A photo on the Twitter feed of Raja Koduri reveals Intel's GPU head visited a Samsung fab in South Korea around the time that the latter announced its 5nm EUV process.

    Next, a rumor is floating around that Intel is one of the customers who ordered samples for Samsung's 5nm node. All this sparks speculation that Intel may tap Samsung to manufacture its Xe discrete GPUs.

    Anyway, take it with a grain of salt, but the timing is definitely curious. Intel's third try at discrete graphics is expected to hit the market in 2020. The chip giant will target the server market but will also have a consumer version.

    AnandTech had a call with Intel and received new details and fresh insight into the chip giant's interconnected future, which involves the combining of chiplets, the EMIB technology, and Foveros. It's too much too condense so you can read the full piece over here.
    The other element to our discussion was a reaffirmation of comments made previously by Dr. Murthy Renduchintala, Intel’s Chief Engineering Officer and Group President of the Technology, Systems, Architecture and Client Group. Ramune stated that chiplet technology and packaging technologies are designed to run asynchronously to Intel’s current manufacturing processes. Ultimately the goal here is to apply the technologies to the process currently available, rather than fixing development and tying development to a single node strategy. As we’ve seen with how Intel’s 10nm development has progressed, this disaggregation of product and technology is going to be an important step in Intel’s future.

    VideoCardz heard the suggested retail pricing of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 is $149. However, this is the price of the reference model, which doesn't exist, so most cards on the market will likely be a bit more expensive.

    The GeForce GTX 1650 is based on the Turing architecture and 869 CUDA cores, no RTX, and 4GB GDDR5 memory. Rumors indicate a base clock of 1486MHz and a Boost of 1665MHz.

    If the rumor mill is accurate, you can expect this launch on April 23.

    Which one will you buy?
