Predtopovy AMD Ryzen 3000 series compared with the current flagship
The Wccftech resource published the results of the benchmarks of one of the 7-nm AMD Ryzen 3000 processors on the Zen 2 architecture. Recall, the chip maker will soon announce ten new processors at once. The most productive solution will receive 16 cores on the AM4 platform.
Today's leakage concerns the twelve-core model. An engineering model, codenamed AMD Qogie-MTS, fell into the hands of insiders. The processor operates at a base frequency of 3.4 GHz, and in turbo mode it accelerates to 3.7 GHz. It is noteworthy that the updated chip slightly surpasses the flagship Ryzen Threadripper 1920X, especially in floating point operations. At the same time, the clock frequency and memory bandwidth of the Zen 2 is somewhat lower than that of the Threadripper 1920X.
AMD Ryzen 3000 processors will be shown to the public on May 27.
Render and characteristics of ASUS ZenFone 6 leaked to the network
The SlashLeaks portal published an image of an unannounced ASUS ZenFone 6 along with a list of its technical specifications. According to the source, the smartphone will be equipped with a 6.3-inch display with a resolution of 2340×1080, a Snapdragon 855 processor and a 48-megapixel camera with an additional 12 megapixel sensor. Three configurations of memory will be available to buyers: 4/128 GB, 8/256 GB and 12/512 GB.
Other characteristics and price of new items are not reported.
NVIDIA prepares rival AMD Navi
According to the RedGamingTech resource, NVIDIA is working on an updated line of GeForce RTX 20 video cards. New products will compete with the not yet released 7-nm AMD Radeon Navi chips.
The next generation of GeForce RTX 20 is expected to receive GDDR6 video memory with increased frequency. Probably, NVIDIA is preparing other improvements, but insiders are not yet aware of this. New items, according to the source, will debut two weeks before the presentation of AMD. It is expected that NVIDIA will “pump” the memory bandwidth of the RTX 2070 and RTX 2080 to 512 GB / s, and the RTX 2080 Ti – up to 704 GB / s.
Recall, NVIDIA has already made a similar move in 2016: then the vendor updated the memory of the GeForce GTX 1080 to GDDR5X, and the old card revisions dropped in price and sold for $ 499 instead of $ 599.
Lenovo Z6 Youth Edition with ultra-accurate GPS will show next week
Lenovo Vice President Chan Chang announced the release of Lenovo Z6 Youth Edition on May 22. Presentation of new items will be held in Beijing. Chan Cheng also shared a screenshot with information about the GPS module in the smartphone. Inside the Lenovo Z6 Youth Edition, an HD8040 chip is installed, which sets the location to 38 satellites with an accuracy of 1 meter – the screenshot below was taken while driving at a speed of 57 km / h.
According to the 3C certification center, the gadget supports fast charging with a power of 18 W. Official information about the model will be available in a week.
