Intel Readies Arc "Alchemist" A310 Entry-level GPU to Match RX 6400-level Performance

With its desktop graphics card lineup still elusive, the company is planning a new entry-level SKU positioned below the Arc A380 and A350M. Called A310, this chip will be based on a heavily cut-down version of the DG2-128 (ACM-G11) silicon, and offer performance levels somewhere between the Iris Xe MAX (DG1) desktop discrete GPU, and the A350M, with the design goal being to compete with AMD's Radeon RX 6400 and NVIDIA's GTX 1650 in the entry-level space.

At this point the core configuration of the A310 is not known. It is speculated to feature 64 to 96 execution units (EU) out of the 128 present on the ACM-G11 silicon. 4 GB of GDDR6 memory across a 64-bit wide memory bus, could remain standard fare for this card. All of the media-acceleration features of "Alchemist" could be featured, including AV1 decode and encode. The A310 could make for a good combo with future Intel workstation or HEDT platforms with non-gaming visual requirements.The ACM-G11 is built on the 6 nm silicon fabrication process, and so the A310 could come with a low power footprint that doesn't need additional power connectors.

AMD Radeon RX 6400 Launched at $159

AMD formally launched the entry-level Radeon RX 6400 graphics card. At an MSRP of $159, this is the most affordable graphics card from the Radeon RX 6000 series. It is based on the same RDNA2 graphics architecture as the rest of the RX 6000 lineup, and the smallest silicon of them all, the "Navi 23." This chip is built on the TSMC N6 (6 nm) silicon fabrication process.

The RX 6400 shares the "Navi 23" silicon with the RX 6500 XT launched earlier this year. AMD enabled 12 out of 16 RDNA2 compute units on the silicon, resulting in 768 stream processors, 48 TMUs, 12 Ray Accelerators, and 32 ROPs. The memory configuration is similar to the RX 6500 XT, with 4 GB of GDDR6 memory across a 64-bit wide memory bus. This is the same 16 Gbps-rated memory, which means 128 GB/s bandwidth on tap. There's also 16 MB of Infinity Cache. The engine clocks (GPU clocks) are set at 2039 MHz (game) and 2321 MHz (boost). With its given specs, the RX 6400 has a typical graphics power (TGP) of just 53 W, and so cards can do without any power connectors.

BIOSTAR and XFX Release Radeon RX 6400 Graphics Cards

AMD Radeon board partners BIOSTAR and XFX today released their custom-design RX 6400 graphics cards, in what could be a sign that board partners are allowed to quietly release the entry-level GPU. The BIOSTAR Radeon RX 6400 Gaming is a full-height graphics card with a simple aluminium mono-block fan-heatsink, and a lack of any additional power connectors. The XFX Radeon RX 6400 SWFT 105, on the other hand, is a low-profile, single-slot graphics card that may find appeal among the SFF crowd. It appears to be using an aluminium channel-type cooler with a 40-50 mm blower. The RX 6400 is carved out from the 6 nm "Navi 23" silicon by enabling 12 out of 16 RDNA2 compute units (768 stream processors), and comes with 4 GB of GDDR6 memory across the chip's 64-bit wide memory interface. We're hearing that at reference specs, the RX 6400 has a typical graphics power (TGP) of just 53 W, which is how it's able to make do without any power connectors.

Sapphire Radeon RX 6400 PULSE Low Profile GPU Pictured

Sapphire looks set to launch one of the first low-profile RDNA2 graphics cards with the single-slot Radeon RX 6400 PULSE that has recently been leaked by VideoCardz. The card features a nearly identical design to the companies existing low-profile Radeon PRO W6400 product offering a single HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4 port along with an optional half-height bracket. The Sapphire Radeon RX 6400 PULSE features 768 Stream Processors and 12 Ray Accelerators along with 4 GB of GDDR6 memory running at 16 Gbps. The card doesn't require any additional power connectors with a TDP of 53 W which could make it a good option for low-power builds. The Radeon RX 6400 was first announced by AMD in January for the OEM market with DIY market products set to launch in a few days on April 20th.

ASRock Radeon RX 6400 Challenger Pictured

It looks like launch of the entry-level Radeon RX 6400 desktop graphics card is just around the corner, with pictures of custom-design cards surfacing. The RX 6400 Challenger by ASRock, pictured below, features a simple aluminium monoblock fan-heatsink, and lacks any power connectors, as the 6 nm "Navi 24" silicon can make do with under 75 W TGP. The RX 6400 is armed with 768 stream processors across 12 RDNA2 compute units, and a 64-bit wide GDDR6 memory interface, holding 4 GB of memory. The SKU is expected to formally launch on April 20.

AMD RX 6950 XT, RX 6750 XT, and RX 6650 XT Pictured, Launching on May 10

AMD's Radeon RX product stack refresh for Spring-Summer, is reportedly set to launch on May 10, 2022. Here's the first picture of what a reference-design RX 6950 XT flagship, RX 6750 XT, and the mid-range RX 6650 XT, could look like. These reference board designs are essentially identical to the original RX 6000 made-by-AMD (MBA) reference designs, but ditch the two-tone silver+black color-scheme for an all-black scheme with some diamond-cut edges around the fan vents, and some piano-black accents.

At this point it is not known if this refresh sees the Navi 20-series ASICs optically-shrunk to the TSMC N6 (6 nm) silicon fabrication node, or if it's the existing 7 nm ASICs with their total graphics power (TGP) values dialed up to make room for increased engine clocks, and faster 18 Gbps-rated GDDR6 memory chips. It's interesting to see the RX 6750 XT now come with a triple-fan cooler that resembles the RX 6800 (non-XT) cooler in design, if not color. We're not sure if the RX 6650 XT reference design will ever make it to the real-world, or if it's just a concept, and the SKU is an AIB-exclusive (custom-designs only).

AMD Claims Radeon RX 6500M is Faster Than Intel Arc A370M Graphics

A few days ago, Intel announced its first official discrete graphics card efforts, designed for laptops. Called the Arc Alchemist lineup, Intel has designed these SKUs to provide entry-level to high-end options covering a wide range of use cases. Today, AMD has responded with a rather exciting Tweet made by the company's @Radeon Twitter account. The company compared Intel's Arc Alchemist A370M GPU with AMD's Radeon RX 6500M mobile SKUs in the post. These GPUs are made on TSMC's N6 node, feature 4 GB GDDR6 64-bit memory, 1024 FP32 cores, and have the same configurable TDP range of 35-50 Watts.

Below, you can see AMD's benchmarks of the following select games: Hitman 3, Total War Saga: Troy, F1 2021, Strange Brigade (High), and Final Fantasy XIV. The Radeon RX 6500M GPU manages to win in all of these games, thus explaining AMD's "FTW" hashtag on Twitter. Remember that these are vendor-supplied benchmarks runs, so we have to wait for some media results to surface.

Pincered by Russian-Ukrainian War and Inflation, DRAM Price Drop Forecast to Continue in 2Q22 by 0-5%, Says TrendForce

According to TrendForce forecasts, average overall DRAM pricing in 2Q22 will drop by approximately 0~5%, due to marginally higher buyer and seller inventories coupled with the demand for products such as PCs, laptops, and smart phones being influenced in the short-term by the Russian-Ukrainian war and high inflation weakening consumer purchasing power. At present, the only remaining source of demand is on the server side, so overall DRAM stocks will remain oversupplied in 2Q22.

In terms of PC DRAM, PC OEMs are adopting a conservative stocking strategy for orders in 2Q22 due to the Russian-Ukrainian war, which may continue affecting orders during peak season in 2H22, and revising 2022 shipment targets downwards. Additionally, the overall supply of bits is still growing, so the PC DRAM price slump in 2Q22 will further expand to 3~8% and may continue to deteriorate.

Intel Arc A370M "Alchemist" Put Through AoTS

The Intel Arc A370M was put through the "Ashes of the Singularity" benchmark. In two separate runs, the GPU ended up with a score of 3500 and 3600 points in the "Min_1080p" configuration, with an average framerate of 67 FPS in the normal batch. The notebook test-platform this chip ran on consisted of a Core i7-12700H processor, and 32 GB of memory.

3500 points is a rather vague score for this benchmark, given that GPUs from a wide range of market segments attained the similar scores (albeit on very different CPU and memory configurations). The A370M is expected to be SKU that maxes out the smaller DG2 ASIC that physically features 128 execution units (1,024 unified shaders), and a 64-bit wide GDDR6 memory bus holding 4 GB of memory. This A370M should offer roughly twice the performance as the Iris Xe iGPU with 96 EUs found in quad-core "Tiger Lake" mobile processors.

Rumor: AMD RDNA2 6X50 Series Refresh With 18 Gbps VRAM Expected Around April 20th

The rumor mill is attempting to nail down the specific launch date of AMD's purported RDNA 2 series refresh. According to renowned leaker Enthusiastic Citizen over at Chiphell forums, AMD is now planning to launch updated versions of its RDNA2 graphics cards around April 20th or April 21st. It seems that AMD is updating three different SKUs based on the RDNA2 silicon, perhaps in order to increase their market attractiveness (and competitiveness) against both NVIDIA's lineup and Intel's upcoming Arc Alchemist series, which is expected to launch in the next several weeks as well.

The new cards, which are expected to carry updated model names, are currently expected to be the RX 6950XT (a response to NVIDIA's oft-delayed RTX 3090 Ti graphics card), the RX 6750XT (likely meant to compete against Intel's upcoming Arc Alchemist A700 series, and the RX 6650XT. The only available details purport to the RX 6950XT, which is expected to not only carry upgraded 18 Gbps GDDR6 VRAM, but also an increased power limit of 350 W (above the 300 W from the reference RX 6900XT. The other two GPU updates should follow suit along the memory frequency and power consumption increases.

SK hynix Develops PIM, Next-Generation AI Accelerator, the GDDR6-AIM

SK hynix announced on February 16 that it has developed PIM (processing-in-memory), a next-generation memory chip with computing capabilities. It has been generally accepted that memory chips store data and CPU or GPU, like human brain, process data. SK hynix, following its challenge to such notion and efforts to pursue innovation in the next-generation smart memory, has found a breakthrough solution with the development of the latest technology.

SK hynix plans to showcase its PIM development at the world's most prestigious semiconductor conference, 2022 ISSCC, in San Francisco at the end of this month. The company expects continued efforts for innovation of this technology to bring the memory-centric computing, in which semiconductor memory plays a central role, a step closer to the reality in devices such as smartphones.

NVIDIA GA107-based GeForce RTX 3050 is Real, Comes with 11% Lower TDP, Same Specs

When NVIDIA launched the GeForce RTX 3050 "Ampere" based on the "GA106" silicon with specifications that could be fulfilled with the smaller "GA107," we knew that the company could eventually start making RTX 3050 boards with the smaller chip, and they did. Igor's Lab reports that RTX 3050 cards based on GA107 come with a typical board power of 115 W, which is about 11 percent lower than that of the GA106-based cards (130 W).

There's no difference in specifications between the two cards. Both feature 2,560 CUDA cores across 20 streaming multiprocessors, 80 Tensor cores, 20 RT cores, and a 128-bit wide GDDR6 memory interface, holding 8 GB of memory that ticks at 14 Gbps data-rate (224 GB/s bandwidth). The GA106 and GA107 ASICs share a common fiberglass substrate, and hence are pin-compatible for the convenience of board partners, with the latter having a smaller die, so any cooling solution designed for the launch-day RTX 3050 should work perfectly fine with those based on GA107.

PNY Rolls Out its GeForce RTX 3050 Series

PNY announced today the upcoming availability of the latest GeForce RTX 3050 graphics cards under both its XLR8 Gaming and PNY brands. The GeForce RTX 3050 brings the performance and efficiency of the NVIDIA Ampere architecture to more gamers than ever before and is the first 50-class desktop GPU to power the latest ray traced games at over 60 FPS.

Ray tracing is the new standard in gaming and the RTX 3050 makes it more accessible than ever before.

The GeForce RTX 3050 delivers improved throughput and efficiency versus the prior gen, for a huge leap in the performance as compared to the GeForce GTX 1650. Featuring 8 GB of high speed GDDR6 memory, combined with real-time ray tracing, these cards bring unparalleled in-game performance and realism to gamers everywhere. Gamers and content creators will experience boosted-performance with the GeForce RTX 3050, to get the most out of their system.

Intel Arc "Alchemist" PCB Closeup Shows Up on Intel Graphics Discord

Intel put out a clear, close-up picture of its Arc "Alchemist" gaming graphics card engineering sample. This matches with a picture of the PCB rear shot that surfaced in a report by "Moore's Law is Dead." The picture reveals a PCB that's about 3/4th the length of the cooling solution, with the remainder of the cooler's length being used to directly vent airflow from the back.

The PCB reveals a rectangular pad for the GPU, which corresponds with that of the larger "Alchemist" GPU. This is surrounded by what look like eight GDDR6 memory pads for a 256-bit wide memory interface; at least 10 VRM phases of an unknown configuration; and a power input configuration that's made up of one each of 8-pin and 6-pin PCIe power connectors (capable of delivering 300 W including slot power). The PCB shows traces that connect the GPU to all 16 PCI-Express lanes of the PCIe finger. Display outputs include three full-size DisplayPorts and an HDMI. This particular variant of "Alchemist" is rumored to feature 512 execution units (4,096 unified shaders), and at least in SiSoft SANDRA, it allegedly outperforms the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti "Ampere."

AMD Radeon RX 6x50 XT Series Possibly in June-July, RX 6500 in May

AMD's final refresh of the RDNA2 graphics architecture, the Radeon RX 6x50 series, could debut in June or July 2022, according to Greymon55, a reliable source with GPU leaks. The final refresh of RDNA2 could see AMD use faster 18 Gbps GDDR6 memory across the board, and eke out higher engine clocks on existing silicon IP. At this point it's not known if these new chips will be built on the same 7 nm process, or are an optical shrink to 6 nm (TSMC N6). Such a shrink to a node that offers 18% higher transistor density, would have significant payoffs with clock-speed headroom. AMD's RDNA3-based 5 nm GPUs could debut only toward the end of the year.

In related news, AMD is preparing to launch another entry-level SKU within the RX 6000 series; the Radeon RX 6500 (non-XT). Based on the same 6 nm Navi 24 silicon as the RX 6500 XT, this SKU could have a core-configuration that's in-between the RX 6500 XT and the RX 6400, in featuring 768 stream processors across 12 compute units; and 4 GB of GDDR6 memory, which is similar to the RX 6400, but with higher engine clocks. The RX 6500 is targeting a $150 (MSRP) price-point.

NVIDIA "GA103" GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU SKU Pictured

When NVIDIA announced the appearance of the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti mobile graphics card, we were left with a desire to see just what the GA103 silicon powering the GPU looks like. And thanks to the Chinese YouTuber Geekerwan, we have the first pictures of the GPU. Pictured below is GA103S/GA103M SKU with GN20-E8-A1 labeling. It features 58 SMs that make up for 7424 CUDA cores in total. The number of Tensor cores for this SKU is set to 232, while there are 58 RT cores. NVIDIA has decided to pair this GPU with a 256-bit memory bus and 16 GB GDDR6 memory.

As it turns out, the full GA103 silicon has a total of 7680 CUDA cores and a 320-bit memory bus, so this mobile version is a slightly cut-down variant. It sits perfectly between GA104 and GA102 SKUs, providing a significant improvement to the core count of GA104 silicon. Power consumption of the GA103 SKU for GeForce RTX 3080 Ti mobile is set to a variable 80-150 Watt range, which can be adjusted according to the system's cooling capacity. An interesting thing to point out is a die size of 496 mm², which is a quarter more significant compared to GA104, for a quarter higher number of CUDA cores.

Intel Arc Alchemist DG2 GPU Memory Configurations Leak

Intel's upcoming Arc Alchemist lineup of discrete graphics cards generates a lot of attention from consumers. Leaks of these cards' performance and detailed specifications appear more and more as we enter the countdown to the launch day, which is sometime in Q1 of this year. Today, we managed to see a slide from @9950pro on Twitter that shows the laptop memory configuration of Intel's DG2 GPU. As the picture suggests, we can see that the top-end SKU1 with 512 EUs supports a 16 GB capacity of GDDR6 memory that runs at 16 Gbps speeds. The memory runs on a 256-bit bus and generates 512 GB/s bandwidth while having eight VRAM modules present.

When it comes to SKU2, which is a variant with 384 EUs, this configuration supports six VRAM modules on a 192-bit bus, running at 16 Gbps speeds. They generate a total capacity of 12 GBs and a bandwidth of 384 GB/s. We have SKU3 DG2 GPU going down the stack, featuring 256 EUs, four VRAM modules on a 128-bit bus, 8 GB capacity, and a 256 GB/s bandwidth. And last but not least, the smallest DG2 variants come in the form of SKU4 and SKU5, feating 128 EUs and 96 EUs, respectively. Intel envisions these lower-end SKUs with two VRAM modules on a 64-bit bus, and this time slower GDDR6 memory running at 14 Gbps. They are paired with 4 GB of total capacity, and the total bandwidth comes down to 112 GB/s.

Intel Arc Alchemist Xe-HPG Graphics Card with 512 EUs Outperforms NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti

Intel's Arc Alchemist discrete lineup of graphics cards is scheduled for launch this quarter. We are getting some performance benchmarks of the DG2-512EU silicon, representing the top-end Xe-HPG configuration. Thanks to a discovery of a famous hardware leaker TUM_APISAK, we have a measurement performed in the SiSoftware database that shows Intel's Arc Alchemist GPU with 4096 cores and, according to the report from the benchmark, just 12.8 GB of GDDR6 VRAM. This is just an error on the report, as this GPU SKU should be coupled with 16 GB of GDDR6 VRAM. The card was reportedly running at 2.1 GHz frequency. However, we don't know if this represents base or boost speeds.

When it comes to actual performance, the DG2-512EU GPU managed to score 9017.52 Mpix/s, while something like NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti managed to get 8369.51 Mpix/s in the same test group. Comparing these two cards in floating-point operations, Intel has an advantage in half-float, double-float, and quad-float tests, while NVIDIA manages to hold the single-float crown. This represents a 7% advantage for Intel's GPU, meaning that Arc Alchemist has the potential for standing up against NVIDIA's offerings.

AMD to Refresh the Radeon RX 6000 Desktop Series with Faster Memory

AMD is preparing a round of updates to its desktop Radeon RX 6000 series in the wake of RTX 30-series models by NVIDIA, according to Greymon55, a reliable source with GPU rumors. The company could be leveraging faster 18 Gbps GDDR6 memory chips for the task. This wouldn't be the first RX 6000 series products with 18 Gbps memory, as the liquid-cooled MBA (made-by-AMD) RX 6900 XT that's exclusive to OEMs, already comes with 18 Gbps memory clocks.

Mass-production of JEDEC-standard GDDR6 memory chips with data-rates as high as 20 Gbps and 24 Gbps by Samsung is expected to get underway later this year. The company is already sampling these chips, and it's likely that they may feature in the next round of product-stack updates by AMD and NVIDIA. In the run up to its next-gen RDNA3 graphics architecture, AMD is rumored to be working on a refresh of RDNA2 on the new TSMC N6 (6 nm) foundry node that it already leverages for the entry-level "Navi 24" ASIC. This is expected to open up headroom to dial up engine clocks, and possibly support faster memory. As for this latest refresh with 18 Gbps memory, if AMD's naming convention for its mobile RX 6850M is anything to go by, the new SKUs could feature a similar "xx50" model numbering.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 12 GB Edition Rumored to Launch on January 11th

During the CES 2022 keynote, we have witnessed NVIDIA update its GeForce RTX 30 series family with GeForce RTX 3050 and RTX 3090 Ti. However, this is not an end to NVIDIA's updates to the Ampere generation, as we now hear industry sources from Wccftech suggest that we could see a GeForce RTX 3080 GPU with 12 GB of GDDR6X VRAM enabled, launched as a separate product. Compared to the regular RTX 3080 that carries only 10 GB of GDDR6X, the new 12 GB version is supposed to bring a slight bump up to the specification list. The GA102-220 GPU SKU found inside the 12 GB variant will feature 70 SMs with 8960 CUDA, 70 RT cores, and 280 TMUs.

This represents a minor improvement over the regular GA102-200 silicon inside the 8 GB model. However, the significant difference is the memory organization. With the new 12 GB model, we have a 384-bit memory bus allowing GDDR6X modules to achieve a bandwidth of 912 GB/s, all while running at 19 Gbps speeds. The overall TDP will also receive a bump to 350 Watts, compared to 320 Watts of the regular RTX 3080 model. For more information regarding final clock speeds and pricing, we have to wait for the alleged launch date - January 11th.
