AMD and NVIDIA have 20 Billion Reasons to be mad at Intel – Tech News July 24

Welcome back to paul’s tech news i don’t
know what it was this week you guys a
feeling important of impending
disquietude but something was up there
was an irregularly large quantity of
news that happened just spurting at us
from every direction and while i’m sure
many of us could use a cool shower to
help out with this summer heat i believe
what we are witnessing is something more
a vast conspiracy perhaps to dispense
with nearly a month’s worth of tech news
and a grand deluge to get it all out of
the way so the parties involved can just
take a couple weeks off
unlikely but if i’m able to confirm my
theory i’ll let you know until then
let’s consider these conspiracy theories
where for example did these leaked intel
13600k benchmarks come from how have so
many reviewers come to the conclusion
that the arc a380 sucks what is the
point of having a domestic chip fab
industry in the us if you don’t throw 50
billion dollars at it and perhaps most
importantly when is the appropriate time
to ask my viewers to hit that elusive
and libidinous like button the truth
will be revealed and so much more on
this episode of tech news
excellent
today’s video was brought to you by the
new lightwings fans from be quiet which
combine legendary near silent operation
with optimal performance and of course
rgb lighting control the look of your pc
with up to 20 addressable leds per fan
and choose from standard pwm for airflow
or pwm high speed for use with radiators
and heatsinks they’re available in 120
millimeter and 140 millimeter sizes and
suitable for any build in need of a
functional and tasteful rgb upgrade so
for more on the new lightwings fans from
be quiet click the sponsor link in the
video description okay first off it’s
too damn hot it’s hot in the u.s it’s
hot in the eu and the uk which you have
to define separately these days it’s hot
in other places too i’m sure that didn’t
have easy headlines for me to grab but
before you ask why i’m leading with the
weather on a tech news show allow me to
share a dire warning from nintendo and
valve both the nintendo switch and the
steam deck have difficulty operating at
higher temperatures specifically above
35 degrees celsius or 95 fahrenheit the
nintendo switch may overheat and
automatically go to sleep and the steam
deck may begin to throttle speeds and
eventually shut down if its internal
temperature goes over 100 c or 212
degrees fahrenheit because heavily
populated areas that typically don’t get
that hot are getting up to 40c and above
in the recent heat waves both nintendo
and valve tweeted some reminders and
suggestions for anyone engaging in
mobile gaming while braving the
sweltering outdoors and summer heat not
everyone has an air-conditioned gaming
room with a desktop pc cooled by more
fans than you can count after all but
perhaps this mild inconvenience for
mobile gaming will convince the world to
step up with some much needed solutions
for climate change
now i’m i’m being told that no that
won’t happen and we’re all doomed i’m
probably just kidding though but before
you have a chance to ruminate on it too
carefully let’s pivot to an easy
distraction with more intel raptor lake
leaks this time we have numbers from all
of the important unlocked skus the 13
900k the 13700k and the 13600k wccf tech
pulled info from the geekbench 5 and
cpu-z databases to show the 13600k
possibly a future contender for a
all-around mid-range gaming chip running
at a base clock of 3.5 gigahertz and a
boost of up to 5.1 gigahertz it’s a six
p core and eight e core design for 20
threads total with eight e cores instead
of the four that the 12 600k was set up
with geekbench showed two entries one
that paired the 13600k with an asrock
z690 steel legend motherboard and one on
an asus rg maximus z690 extreme there
were also new entries for the flagship
24 core 32 thread 13 900k and here is
how they match up cpu-z shows a
significant single core lead for the
12th and 13th gen intel cpus over the
ryzen 5000 cpus and that is extended
with these new scores multi-thread
results bring the 5950x up ahead of
intel’s 12th gen cpus but the 13900k is
still on top the 13600k also draws ahead
of the previous gen 12600k by almost
3000 points going from about 7200 up to
over 10 000 and outpacing the 12700k as
well geekbench scores are a bit more
favorable towards intel here the single
core scores favor 13th gen yet again and
when multi-threaded the 13600k comes
within 500 points of the 5950x although
it’s speculated that those results were
reduced a bit with asus multi-core
enhancement and the use of ddr5 memory
hence the boost over the asrock 13600k
results the middle child 13700k has
unofficially debuted in the geekbench
database as well with an eight p core
and eight e core configuration for 24
threads total again that’s four more e
cores versus the 12700k and the raptor
lake variant hit 5.38 gigahertz peak and
5.36 gigahertz on average here’s how
those scores line up versus the others i
just mentioned and yes the 13700k does
appear to outpace the 5950x even in the
multi-core category in this test and as
if to cap off a week of tasty 13th gen
leaks on friday the billy billy user
known as enthusiastic citizen or ecsm
underscore official stated with much
confidence that raptor lake will be
revealed at intel’s innovation event on
september 28th followed by an october
17th launch at least for the case q cpus
and z790 motherboards much like the
alder lake launch it looks like the non
k skus and the less expensive h760 and
b760 motherboards won’t be out until q1
2023 after they’re revealed at ces on
january 5th keep in mind that we’re
still very much dealing with rumors here
versus official announcements but if
these dates hold up then it looks like
raptor lake will drop a couple weeks
after amd’s next gen am5 platform launch
for zen 4 based ryzen 7000 series cpus
the end of the year should be quite
interesting for pc hardware though
intel’s arc a380 desktop gpu has been on
the market for a few weeks now if by on
the market you count a very quantity and
geographically limited debut in china
this means that units have finally made
their way into the hands of a wider
group of reviewers and in particular a
batch of reviews published wednesday
from spain russia and germany have not
been kind to intel’s first arc series
desktop solution performance typically
lags behind amd’s slowest card in the
radeon 6000 series the rx 6400 and
trades blows with nvidia’s
three-year-old gtx 1650 the card is
simply not usable without rebar says
igor of igor’s lab and the genera model
most have been able to acquire appears
rushed and quickly assembled with
thermal pads too thick and too much
thermal paste overall resulting in a not
approved rating from the well-respected
media outlet only the second time such
an honor has been bestowed driver issues
abound as well resulting in poor frame
time performance and an overlay that can
block the entire screen wolfgang from
computer base summed up the review
experienced in the bluntest terms gaming
with intel’s arc 380 even with the
latest driver is like living in the
middle of a minefield playing while
drunk it is completely incomprehensible
how a large and reputable company like
intel can sell such a product so i guess
i went too easy on intel last week
speaking of throwing in tele-bone the
united states senate advanced the chips
act on tuesday allowing the legislation
to proceed with a potential vote for
final approval slated for early next
week the vote was 64-34 in favor of a
slimmed down version of the bill which
would still provide more than 50 billion
dollars in subsidies to u.s chip
manufacturers with intel being one of
the first in line to receive benefits
the bill seeks to further bolster
domestic chip production with tax breaks
to encourage the construction of plants
based in the united states proponents of
the bill say it will help the u.s keep
up with international chip-making
competition particularly versus
companies in china taiwan and japan who
have received significant subsidies from
their respective governments opponents
point out that companies like intel are
not exactly hurting for cash and ask why
taxpayer dollars should be doled out to
boost their business when the economy is
in its current state of disarray if you
want to know what i think
well actually i think both of those are
significant points worthy of
consideration but coming up with the
best solution is unfortunately well
above my pay grade i would like to point
out cnbc’s remarkable choice of stock
imagery in this case though to represent
legislation that could underpin next-gen
chip design for years to come they went
with a picture of an lga 775 cpu from
2005 and yes that’s an a-bit motherboard
remember abit they went out of business
in 2008. one upshot of the chips act is
that chipmakers who actually build fabs
are keen to hitch their cattle car to
that sweet sweet gravy train samsung
coincidentally sent over a massive
proposal on wednesday after the senate’s
procedural vote an austin texas area
build out plan that includes 11 new fabs
a 200 billion dollar investment and up
to 10 000 new jobs
jobs are good i think two of the
facilities would be in austin and 9
would be built 25 miles to the northeast
in taylor which is in williamson county
the earliest any would be finished is
2034 though with others reaching
completion in 2042 in return for their
build-out investment though samsung
would receive just short of 4.8 billion
dollars in tax breaks over the life of
the agreement 4.8 billion dollars ain’t
bad but intel could be on the receiving
end of more than 20 billion dollars in
subsidies if the chips act gets through
congress prior to their august recess
the senate might still make changes to
the bill’s details though which still
aren’t public according to reuters and
there’s a small detail that’s tbd about
whether the bill will support chip
designers or just chip manufacturers you
may have heard of amd qualcomm and
nvidia for example they all design chips
but do not own their own fabs to produce
them they work with companies like
samsung and tsmc to actually produce the
chips intel does own fabs along with
companies like texas instruments global
foundries and micron and intel in
particular could see as much as a 20
billion dollar financial boost if the
bill passes competitors are not so happy
about that although they’re not keen to
go on record with public statements
quite yet an anonymous rep of one of the
fabulous chip design companies at least
said as much you have intel that might
get 20 billion with the chips act plus 5
billion or 10 billion under the fabs act
so 30 billion goes to your direct
competitor and you don’t get a penny
that’s going to cause problems in the
market very true and that makes sense to
me let’s switch gears to something
that’s hopefully less controversial
though although it does still involve
the us government remember ajit pai the
former fcc chair who everyone hated
because he was so obviously in bed with
all the big isps and he had that big
douchey rhesus mug too his replacement
jessica rosenworcel actually wants to
give the public faster broadband
internet by increasing the standards for
what qualifies as minimum broadband
speeds as well as setting new long-term
speed goals for the future the current
broadband standard is 25 megabits per
second down and three up which was last
updated in 2015 the new standard would
be 100 down and 20 up which is way
faster broadband standard definitions
mean that isps can’t say try to sell you
a shitty bonded dsl connection that’s
barely faster than dial up while telling
you that you’re getting broadband
internet a practice that plagues both
rural communities and low-income
neighborhoods those longer term goals
look good too although there’s not a
specific timetable for them yet but the
national goal is 1 gigabits per second
down and 500 megabits per second up
eventually bringing gigabit internet to
all and sundry faster internet is good i
will tolerate no disagreements on this
subject speaking of disagreeable things
we’re getting closer to the end of the
show but fear not there’s still a
lightning round of tech news to go it’s
time for tech briefs i’ve been
monitoring this situation for some time
now monitors and companies making them
who didn’t use to make monitors corsair
debuted their zinnia online in late 2021
with a single model but they’re now
expanding that line with two new 32-inch
displays as of tuesday the 32uhd 144 and
32qhd 240. as the model names suggest
the former is a 4k display with a 144hz
refresh rate and the latter is a qhd or
2560×1440 resolution with a 240hz
refresh rate both feature quantum dot
technology usb type-c connectivity along
with displayport and hdmi and variable
refresh rate compatibility with freesync
premium or g-sync signal inputs the qhd
model is 700 bucks and the 4k model will
cost you a cool grand nzxt also jumped
into the monitor market this week with
monday’s posting of two new models
dubbed the canvas series both feature a
165hz refresh rate and 2560 by 1440
resolution with one 27-inch flat panel
model and one 32-inch curved one there
are some differences between them like
the 27-inch is an ips panel whereas a
32-inch is va but the monitor housing
and stand are both available in black or
white and you can mix and match which
combination you want on the nzxt store
page you can also buy these monitors
without stands if you already have one
which can save you 40 bucks but with the
basic stands the canvas 27q costs 360
dollars and the canvas 32q curved costs
for 30. moving along researchers at the
university of the negev in israel have
introduced satan to your pc no not the
prince of darkness who rules over the
desecration of the underworld but a
devious hack that can pull data directly
from your sata cable over the air by
picking up on the faint radio signals
that emanate from it as it communicates
with a hard drive or ssd at six
gigahertz speeds before you get too
worried there are significant
limitations to this hack signals can
only be read up to one meter away
specific malware must be installed to
modify the file system activity so it
will generate identifiable radio signals
it just wouldn’t work with newer
hardware like an m.2 drive and
practically speaking if you had that
level of physical access to a machine
you could just pull the storage drive
out and make off with it but at least
you’d have a good excuse the devil made
me do it get the behind me theta meta
which used to be called facebook
apparently didn’t check or didn’t care
if another company was already using
that name and now meta xlc a different
meta company focused on vr that’s been
around since 2010 has filed suit against
zuck’s meta company which took on the
moniker on october 28 2021 meta x seems
to have a pretty good point in how the
facebook parent company rebrand has
affected their ability to do business
and despite ongoing communication
between the companies meta platforms aka
facebook has not budged in their
unreasonableness and arrogance according
to the article which appeared to be the
staple character traits that zuckerberg
programmed his robotic replacement with
so many years ago when he departed this
earth in search of more old people to
sign up for his social media platform
speaking of old people it turns out that
we might not all be septigenerians by
the time rockstar finally releases gta 6
in fact buzz about the much anticipated
sequel to gta 5 which launched in
september 2013 has been rampant in the
past couple weeks most notably rockstar
is staffing up with more than 220 job
postings going up just in the past month
while official statements are still
short on specifics rockstar has only
said that they are working on a new
entry in the grand theft auto series as
part of their wind down of additional
updates to red dead redemption online it
does seem like something big is in the
works and we could realistically see gta
6 by 2024 if rockstar’s parent company
take 2 interactive has anything further
to add in the near future it will likely
be discussed when they reveal their
first quarter financial results for the
2023 fiscal year on august 8th now that
i’ve had some time to research though
let’s get back to those suspicious
goings-ons that i talked about in the
intro and it’s big news there will be no
news or no tech news for about two weeks
according to my sources that’s right all
tech news the world over will cease and
things will just be kind of chill and
quiet and peaceful for a couple weeks
sounds good to me it’s a good time of
the summer for a bit of a break should
help us prepare for the veritable orgy
of product launches expected in the
final four or five months of the year so
once again no tech news for the next two
weeks and this series will continue on
august 14th but there you have it guys
tech news for the week indeed for the
next three weeks or so and if you liked
it click that like button or leave me a
comment down below while you’re down
there all the articles i talked about
today are linked in the description if
you’re interested and you can check out

to my channel is always a good call too
thanks again everyone and we’ll see you
again soon
