Intel Core i5-12400 Overclocked To 5 GHz On MSI MAG B760M Mortar Max, Comes Close To i5-13600K In Games
Intel Core i5-12400 Overclocked To 5 GHz On MSI MAG B760M Mortar Max, Comes Close To i5-13600K In Games

Intel 13th Gen Non-K CPU Benchmarks Leak: Core i9-13900, Core i7-13700, Core i5-13600, Core i5-13500 & Core i5-13400 Tested In Cinebench 1

Intel's Core i5-12400 does wonders when it is overclocked on a motherboard that allows for Non-K BCLK operation such as the MSI MAG B760M Mortar Max.

MSI MAG B760M Mortar Max Overclocks The Intel Core i5-12400 CPU To 5 GHz, Almost Comes Close To Core i5-13600K Performance In Games

A few days ago, it was reported that MSI's upcoming MAG B760M Mortar MAX WIFI motherboard will be amongst the few designs to feature Non-K BCLK overclock capabilities. We got to see a 5.0 GHz overclock on the Intel Core i5-12400 CPU utilizing the motherboard and now we get to see a range of gaming benchmarks where the overclocked chip is put to the test.

The leak which once again comes from the highly reputable chi11eddog, shows us the Intel Core i5-12400 CPU, overclocked to 5 GHz and tested with a GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card at 1440p. Titles including Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs Legion, Final Fantasy XIV, Red Dead Redemption 2 & F1 2022 were used. The Core i5-12400 (5 GHz) was compared to the stock Core i5-13400 & Core i5-13600K CPUs.

As expected, the Intel Core i5-12400 at 5 GHz offered up to 8% better performance in games and even managed to end up close to the Core i5-13600K in games. Now, this is in line with the clocks that were 8.5% higher than the maximum boost on the Core i5-13400 which is 4.6 GHz. These tests show that users with a good Non-K BCLK motherboard can still squeeze out some extra juice from their chips. MSI also offers the B660M Mortar MAX WIFI series which allows for the same overclock capabilities. Anyone upgrading to the newer B760 Max series should expect similar features & get to enjoy the better performance without spending extra on a higher-end chip.

Intel's B760 motherboards & 13th Gen Non-K CPUs will be available in the first week of January, just a week prior to the AMD Ryzen 7000 Non-X CPU launch.

What do you think should be the best price range for budget motherboards?

AMD Ryzen 9 7900, Ryzen 7 7700, Ryzen 5 7600 65W ‘Zen 4’ CPUs Appear In CPU-z Database

The trio of AMD's Ryzen 7000 Non-X CPUs including the Ryzen 9 7900, Ryzen 7 7700 & Ryzen 5 7600 have appeared in the CPU-z database for validation.

AMD Ryzen 'Zen 4 Non-X' CPUs Appear In CPU-z Validation Database: Ryzen 9 7900, Ryzen 7 7700, Ryzen 5 7600

The AMD Ryzen 7000 Non-X CPUs have been listed within the CPU-z validation database which is more or less a confirmation that we will be getting to see how these chips perform, soon! We're already aware of the 10th January launch date while specs and pricing have been leaked a while back.

Back in November, we reported that AMD was working on at least three new Ryzen 7000 'Zen 4' Non-X CPUs, the Ryzen 9 7900, Ryzen 7 7700, and the Ryzen 5 7600. These three CPUs are designed for mainstream users and unlike the 'X' series parts, run at slightly lower clock speeds and deliver far better prices than the 'X' variants too.

There's also a benchmark of the AMD Ryzen 7 7700 posted in one of the validations however this score is pretty low and might be due to the stock DDR5-4800 used on the ASUS ROG STRIX B650-A GAMING WIFI motherboard. With that said, expect a full-on review during the first week of January.

AMD Ryzen 9 7900 - 12 Zen 4 Cores For Just $429 US

The AMD Ryzen 9 7900 will feature 12 cores, 24 threads, and 76 MB of cache (64 MB L3 + 12 MB L3) and will feature a maximum clock speed of up to 5.4 GHz. The CPU will retail at $429 US which is a difference of $120 US versus the Ryzen 9 7900X. While the base clock remains to be seen, the boost clock sees a 200 MHz reduction but given the price point, this 12-core chip looks incredible & I can already see a lot of users upgrading to this sub-$500 US 12-Core Zen 4 chip.

AMD Ryzen 7 7700 - 8 Core Gaming Champ Under $350 US

Next up, we have the Ryzen 7 7700 which will feature 8 cores, 16 threads 40 MB of cache (32 MB L3 + 8 MB L3), and will feature a maximum clock speed of up to 5.3 GHz. The CPU will retail for $329 US which is a difference of $70 US versus the Ryzen 7 7700X which retails at $399 US. The Ryzen 7 7700 seems to be clocked just 100 MHz lower than the Ryzen 7 7700X which is impressive given its 65W power budget. The final TDP should fall around 90-100W given the 1.375x multiplier for the PPT.

AMD Ryzen 5 7600 - Making AM5 Affordable For Entry-Level Builders

Lastly, we have the AMD Ryzen 5 7600 which will feature 6 cores, 12 threads, 38 MB of cache (32 MB L3 + 6 MB L2) and will feature a maximum clock speed of up to 5.1 GHz. The CPU will hit retail at $229 US which is also $70 US lower than the Ryzen 5 7600X which retails at $299 US. The boost clock is 200 MHz lower than the 'X' chip. Based on the above:

  • Ryzen 9 7900 12 Core- $120 US cheaper vs 7900X
  • Ryzen 7 7700 8 Core- $70 US cheaper vs 7700X
  • Ryzen 5 7600 6 Core - $70 US cheaper vs 7600X

Overall, the chips sound like they will offer the best performance per dollar value on the AM5 platform and we will also be looking at cheaper A620 motherboards by the mid of 2023. AMD Ryzen 7000X3D 3D V-Cache CPUs will also be headed to CES 2023 for a full unveil.

NVIDIA RTX 4070 Ti Official Benchmarks Leak Out – As Fast As The RTX 3090 Ti But 40% Of The MSRP
NVIDIA RTX 4070 Ti Official Benchmarks Leak Out – As Fast As The RTX 3090 Ti But 40% Of The MSRP

The NVIDIA RTX 4070 Ti is going to be launching on the 5th for an MSRP of $799 (which is going to be loosely interpreted by the AICs considering the company is not preparing a Founder's Edition for this and only custom models will hit the market). Videocardz has done it again and leaked the official performance figures of the RTX 4070 Ti - although we already had an exceptionally good idea from NVIDIA's official slides of the same card when it was launched as the RTX 4080 12 GB.

RTX 4070 Ti scores 11258 points in TimeSpy Extreme (4K) and 13698 points in FireStrike Ultra (4K)

Long story short, the RTX 4070 Ti is roughly as fast as the older generation NVIDIA RTX 3090 Ti. In gaming, the RTX 4070 Ti is just shy of the RTX 3090 Ti and in rendering applications such as Octanebench, it is actually slightly faster. The official MSRP of the card is $799, which is $1200 less than the $1999 MSRP of the RTX 3090 Ti.

While it might be similar in performance, it is worth noting that the RTX 3090 Ti did have 24 GB of VRAM while the RTX 4070 Ti only has 12 GB of VRAM. The full breakdown of the scores and their relative positions courtesy of Videocardz is given below:

Data courtesy of Videocardz.com TimeSpy
Extreme (4K)
FireStrike
Ultra (4K)
GeForce RTX 4090 19484 24938
Radeon RX 7900 XTX 14883 19465
GeForce RTX 4080 14022 17316
Radeon RX 7900 XT 12707 17288
GeForce RTX 3090 Ti 11312 13987
GeForce RTX 4070 Ti 11258  13698 
Radeon RX 6950 XT 10694 15218
GeForce RTX 3090 10288 12612 
GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 10037 12451
Radeon RX 6900 XT 10012 14362
Radeon RX 6800 XT 9262 12978
GeForce RTX 3080 8894  10843
GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 7402 9339
GeForce RTX 3070 6789 8560
Radeon RX 6750 XT 6320 9001

The NVIDIA RTX 4070 Ti will have 7680 CUDA cores clocked at 2.61 GHz and powered by 12 GB of GDDR6X memory. This means you are looking at a theoratical peak FP32 throughput of 40.01 TFLOPs. Interestingly however, these official benchmarks show that the RTX 4070 Ti will officially be slightly less powerful than the Radeon RX 7900 XT - which is going to have an MSRP of $899. So this is NVIDIA undercutting the Radeon competitor by pricing it to appeal to what is essentially the new mainstream market segment.

GPU FP32 TFLOPs MSRP TFLOPs/$ Value (%)
GeForce RTX 4090 82.59 1599 0.05165 100.0%
GeForce RTX 4080 48.74 1199 0.04065 78.7%
GeForce RTX 4070 Ti 40.09 799 0.05017 97%

While the RTX 4090 sold like hot cakes considering the value proposition it was giving on a TFLOPs/$ basis, the RTX 4080 did not do well at all considering the bad price point. The RTX 4070 Ti is much much closer to the value proposition that the RTX 4090 made and should sell much better as well. This might not be the pricing that gamers were hoping for but it is certainly much better pricing than we have seen in the market for years and should make way for NVIDIA and AMD to start reconnecting with their core audience - gamers.

Rare & Canceled NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 16 GB Prototype Graphics Card Pictured
Rare & Canceled NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 16 GB Prototype Graphics Card Pictured

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 16 GB Graphics Card Spotted Once Again In Gigabyte Listing 1

The much-rumored but later canceled NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 16 GB graphics card has been pictured which confirms its existence.

A canceled prototype for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 16 GB GPU appears in leaked photos

According to previous reports, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 16 GB graphics card only saw prototype stages and never saw a production run. The graphics card was fashioned with the GA104-401 GPU and was similar to the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 8GB with only a few changes. The RTX 3070 Ti 16 GB offered twice the memory and a higher base and boost clock. The card was anticipated to go head to head with the Intel Arc A770 16 GB graphics card but was later delayed and eventually canceled.

Some factors that contributed to the cancelation of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 16 GB card were the oversupply of Ampere chips in the market and the rising cost of materials, especially the GDDR6(X) memory chips.

Now we have the first pictures of the prototype NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 16 GB graphics card from MEGAsizeGPU. The logo, however, reads "RTX 3070," which would not specify that it was the RTX 3070 Ti GPU unless you looked at the specifications of the card within GPU-z.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti graphics card prototype was put through GPU-Z to give us a look at some specifications since none were revealed with the images leaked. The bus interface is a PCIe 4.0 (x16) with 16 GB GDDR6 memory. The bus width is 256 bits and offers a bandwidth of 512 GB/s. The boost clock starts at 1590 MHz and boosts to 1800 MHz.

MEGAsizeGPU, the source of the leaked photos, could not provide any current specifications or benchmarks of the current graphics card. It is speculated that the drivers available on NVIDIA's support page would be compatible with the graphics card. Also, it does raise the question of how this individual graphics card appears outside of NVIDIA's offices. While the 3070 Ti 16 GB was never launched in the retail segment, the successor to the RTX 3070 Ti, the 4070 Ti 12 GB, will see its official launch next week at CES 2023.

NVIDIA Leaks & Confirms GeForce RTX 4070 Ti Specs, Up To 3.5x Faster Than RTX 3080 With RT Overdrive
NVIDIA Leaks & Confirms GeForce RTX 4070 Ti Specs, Up To 3.5x Faster Than RTX 3080 With RT Overdrive

NVIDIA has leaked & confirmed the specs of the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti itself which are in line with everything that we have heard before.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti Is A Rebadged RTX 4080 12 GB, Green Team Claims Up To 3.5x Faster Than RTX 3080 With RT-Overdrive

The specifications, nor the performance of the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti are anything to woo about considering we have seen them on multiple occasions before. As expected, the RTX 4070 Ti will feature the same specs as the RTX 4080 12 GB which was 'Un launched' by the green team. We managed to see some performance figures for the 4080 12 GB which showed performance very close to the RTX 3090 Ti and exceeding in RT heavy titles.

However, the benchmarks NVIDIA has shown so far have relied heavily on DLSS3 and the latest ones go one step ahead and use the RT-Overdrive mode when comparing the RTX 4070 Ti to the RTX 3080. With RT-Overdrive enabled, the RTX 4070 Ti ends up to 3.5x faster than the RTX 3080 12 GB graphics card. Even without RT-Overdrive, the card shows nearly 2x gains but these are once again with DLSS 3 (Frame-Generation) enabled.

Now while these are official performance figures, we want to advise our readers to wait for final reviews that land in the coming week before making their final decisions on whether the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti is worth the price and performance or it's better getting something else.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti 12 GB 'Official' Specifications

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti will utilize the "Ada Lovelace" AD104-400 GPU configuration with 7,680 cores or 60  SMs enabled which is the full-fat SKU. The GPU will be packing 48 MB of L2 cache and features a 192-bit bus interface so that's why we are getting up to 12 GB of GDDR6X capacities. The memory is said to be running at 21 Gbps speeds for a memory bandwidth of 504 GB/s. The card is said to be clocked at a 2610 MHz boost clock however the peak frequency will be higher.

  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti 12 GB "Official" TBP - 285W
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 8 GB "Official" TBP - 290W

For power, the TBP is now set to be rated at 285W which is a 35W decrease versus the RTX 3080 10 GB model and a 5W decrease from the RTX 3070 Ti. The new graphics card is expected to offer better performance than the RTX 3080 but given the specs cut over the 4080 16 GB, there will be a big gap between both models of around 30-40%.

Supermicro W790 Motherboard Pictured, E-ATX Designed Tuned For Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon Workstation CPUs
Supermicro W790 Motherboard Pictured, E-ATX Designed Tuned For Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon Workstation CPUs

Supermicro's next-generation W790 motherboard for Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon Workstation CPUs has once again been pictured, only this time in more detail.

Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon Workstation-Ready Supermicro W790 Motherboard Pictured & Detailed

The Supermicro X13SWA-TF is a next-generation motherboard that was leaked out by Videocardz a while ago. This motherboard is one of the first Intel W790 chipset designs that will offer support for Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon Workstation CPUs which are due for launch in the first half of 2023. This new leak gives us a better and close-up look at the motherboard along with details such as memory and PCIe lanes offered on the two Sapphire Rapids Xeon Workstation families.

The Supermicro X13SWA-TF was listed last month with a price of $960 US. The motherboard features the new LGA 4677 socket (Socket P) which will support the latest Xeon CPUs branded under Intel Sapphire Rapids-WS family. The CPU gets power from an 8+2 phase power delivery which is juiced up by a dual 8-pin power connector layout. The motherboard supports Xeon processors with up to 350W TDPs (supported with SMC dedicated heatsink or water cooler).

As for the memory layout, the Supermicro W790 motherboard features a total of 16 DDR5 DIMM slots, supporting 8-channel memory (2DPC) for up to 1 TB/4 TB of memory (64 GB RDIMM / 3DS). Since the DDR5 memory moves the voltage regulation to the DIMMs rather than being housed on the board itself, we can't spot any DRAM VRMs on the sides of the motherboard like the previous-gen design. In terms of memory speeds, the default DDR5 frequency is set to DDR5-4800 for 1DPC & DDR5-4400 for 2DPC in both 8 and 4-channel memory configurations.

Moving forward to the expansion, the Supermicro W790 motherboard features a total of 6 PCIe x16 slots which should be using the Gen5 protocol since Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon chips offer PCIe Gen 5.0 capabilities. One thing to note is that the Sapphire Rapids-WS Xeon CPU lineup will come in two lines of flavors, the Xeon W-3000 line will feature 112-lane support while the Xeon W-2000 line will get 64-lane support.

There are also three M.2 slots on the board which should be Gen5 compliant too. There are 8 SATA III ports, two U.2 ports, and a good selection of I/O at the back. Supermicro, just like many other manufacturers will be offering this and several other W790-class motherboards close to launch. I/O includes a single 10GbE (Marvell AQC113C) & an Intel i210-AT 1GbE controller on the motherboard along with a share IPMI. Intel will be sharing more information on the Sapphire Rapids WS family in the coming months.

This isn't a huge gain in performance unlike the rest of the Raptor Lake chips which are bringing improved multi-core performance and bigger caches to the table. With that said, Intel may have pricing advantage up its sleeve but that remains to be seen.

Acer and Intel will both be at this year's CES 2023, as well as thousands of other top companies, meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada, between January 3, 2023, to January 6, 2023, where everyone will have a chance to see what will be releasing next year and into the new future. Intel, AMD, and NVIDIA are set to present in the first few days of the show, which is also planned to show live on social media.

AMD Radeon Graphics Cards Offer Better Performance In Windows 11 Vs Linux 6.2
AMD Radeon Graphics Cards Offer Better Performance In Windows 11 Vs Linux 6.2

This year has seen multiple updates to the Linux operating system from AMD, Intel, and NVIDIA when it comes to covering graphics cards in the open-source kernel or improvements in processing power, as well as video codecs, leaks of new technology, and more. That being said, the most recent tests conducted by the Linux Hardware editor and reviewer of the website Phoronix — as well as an entrepreneur, Linux software engineer, and analyst — Michael Larabel, shed light on the AMD Radeon Gaming performance in Windows 11 and Ubuntu Linux environments.

Windows 11 OS Offers Best Graphics Performance For AMD Radeon GPUs Vs Linux 6.2

Larabel used several games available on PC and Linux operating systems. The games were chosen by titles that worked exceptionally well on Steam Play in Linux compared to the Windows 11 experience. In the coming days, Larabel plans to place Intel and NVIDIA under similar tests to find out what performs better, especially entering a new year. Today's focus is on AMD.

The game titles handpicked by Larabel were:

The Phoronix editor also chose three benchmarks for the tests. The first test handles better in Vulkan and OpenGL, while the second and third from UNIGINE are better equipped for OpenGL.

Yesterday, we reported that the Radeon RX 7900 XTX graphics cards were going through isolated but growing issues with overheating and losing performance because of the temperature spikes. It will be interesting to see if this will affect performance. Larabel utilized the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT and the Radeon RX 7900 XTX GPUs for this testing.

The Windows operating system used for testing is Windows 11 Pro Edition, which he mentions was updated with the current drivers available. In contrast, the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT driver used is the Adrenalin 22.11.2 Recommended WHQL driver, and the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTDX used Adrenalin 22.12.2. The difference between the two drivers is that the 22.11.2 Recommended driver offers the latest updates for Navi 2 GPUs, while the 22.12.2 driver offers the latest RDNA 3 drivers.

With Linux, in Ubuntu 22.10, Larabel used Linux 6.2-rc1 alongside Mesa 23.0-devel, offering the best support for RDNA 2 and 3 architectures. The processor utilized for the testing is Intel's i9-13900K CPU with 32GB DDR5-6000 memory on an ASUS PRIME Z790-P WIFI mobo and Solidigm's P44 PRO 2 TB NVMe solid state drive.

Hitman 3 showed higher gains with Windows 11 Pro and the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX, whereas the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT led close to the same performance on Steam Play in Linux and the standard Windows operating system (Windows was seven frames per second faster). The same is said for both frame time and resolution while stressing the game in a 4K environment.

Left 4 Dead 2 was the opposite, with the OpenGL rendering showing a better FPS on both graphics cards from AMD than in Windows 11 Pro. However, Portal 2 jumped back into Windows with both graphics cards, but Linux was a close competition on the newest GPU from AMD. Quake II RTX, especially having NVIDIA-centric ray tracing, was almost identical in Windows and Linux, with ray tracing activated showing the most similarities with it deactivated. Linux did pull slightly ahead of both graphics card tests in the game for the RADV ray tracing driver, which shows the amount of work placed into the compatibility and performance of the driver over the last year. But, once again, in 4K resolution tests, Windows 11 Pro outshined Ubuntu. Strange Brigade also favored Windows 11 Pro over Ubuntu Linux and X-Plane 12.

GravityMark 1.72 benchmarking allowed for the Ubuntu Linux graphics to outshine Windows 11 Pro most of the time, thanks to the RadeonSI Gallium3D driver and Vulkan driver support, including 4K resolution settings. Larabel notes that the UNIGINE Heaven benchmark is slowly becoming outdated but remains relatively faithful to OpenGL native benchmarking. Windows 11 did show the most considerable improvement on the Heaven benchmark tests but flipped in the Superposition benchmarks, only gaining a slight lead over Windows.

Next for the Phoronix editor will be Intel Arc Graphics and NVIDIA's newer RTX 40 series GPUs in the coming days. You can check all benchmark results on his Phoronix website, and you can check out his other projects on his professional portfolio site, MichaelLarabel.com.

AMD Responds To Radeon RX 7900 XTX Thermal Issues, Asks Users To Contact Support
AMD Responds To Radeon RX 7900 XTX Thermal Issues, Asks Users To Contact Support

AMD has finally provided a response on the thermal throttling and overheating issues reported for the Radeon RX 7900 XTX graphics card.

AMD Asks Users To Contact Its Support Team If They Are Facing Over-heating or Thermal Throttling Issues With The Radeon RX 7900 XTX

Earlier this week, we reported that a few users were facing issues with the Radeon RX 7900 XTX graphics cards, the MBA or reference model in particular. The issues mostly had to do with the graphics card overheating and thermal throttling down to lower clock speeds, resulting in a less-than-desired performance in games.

Since our report, multiple users have shown up who are facing the same issues with their AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX reference graphics cards. AMD had previously declined to offer an RMA to a user facing the issue, stating that the card hitting 110C Junction temperature was within normal spec however what isn't normal was the lower performance that was a result of those high temps.

PowerColor stepped in a few days ago to help consumers who bought a reference AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX graphics card and asked them to provide data regarding the card. Now it looks like AMD is also listening to customers and has provided us with the following statement on the matter

“We are aware that a limited number of users are experiencing unexpected thermal throttling on AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX graphics cards (reference models made by AMD). Users experiencing unexpected thermal throttling of an AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX should contact AMD Support.”

Another user on Reddit stated that AMD was offering a refund for the Radeon RX 7900 XTX and not a replacement unit since the MBA variant most likely has limited quantities. It also depends on the region as some get more reference models than others. For example, China got far fewer reference variants than the rest of the world. Now we have yet to see what result comes out after consumers contact customer support but it is good to see that AMD is acknowledging the issue & helping out users who are facing this issue. We will keep you updated once we get more information on the matter.

A Smart Wireless Bandage That Monitors Your Wounds, and Treats Them, Too
A Smart Wireless Bandage That Monitors Your Wounds, and Treats Them, Too

A team of researchers working under the Stanford Wearable Electronics Initiative have developed a “smart bandage” which, they claim, does not only monitor wounds wirelessly, but can actively speed up healing through the application of electrical stimulation. They claim the bandage can cut healing time by 25% and scarring in half.

The flexible, wearable bandage contains a microcontroller, impedance and temperature sensors, a compact antenna for a built-in radio, and an electrical stimulator — in a circuit measuring just 100 microns, or around the size of a single layer of latex paint, in thickness. This is mounted atop hydrogel which adheres to the wound to protect it from the outside world, yet peels away easily when gently heated under an infrared lamp.

Sealing a wound with a hydrogel bandage isn’t new, but it’s the electronics which provide the novelty in the team’s creation: the sensors actively monitor the wound and respond with electrical stimulation when necessary — something which prior research, backed up by the team’s experimental findings, has shown can accelerate wound closure, reduce scarring, and even fight infection, with test subjects healing around 25 percent faster and with 50 percent less scarring.
