AMD Ryzen ThreadRipper 3000 and TRX40 chipsets available from November 19 | rumor

After the Intel Core X 10a gen processors presented earlier this month | Intel Core-X 10a gen and Xeon W-2200: up to 18 cores and half prices | many expect the AMD response with Ryzen ThreadRipper 3rd gen at 7nm (3000 series), expected on the market for November, as confirmed by the company in its latest release | AMD Ryzen ThreadRipper 3000 processors, debut scheduled for November .

According to the recent videocardz report , based on a confidential document apparently from internal AMD sources, the new ThreadRipper CPUs will be unveiled on November 5th together with the next-generation TRX40 chipset . More specifically, the document suggests that on November 5th there will be a so-called "paper launch", an occasion in which AMD will reveal to the public the new line of processors led by the Ryzen ThreadRipper 3990X , flanked by the ThreadRipper 3970X and ThreadRipper 3960X models and the TRX40 chipset.

Two weeks later, on November 19th, AMD will remove the embargo on Ryzen ThreadRipper 3970X and ThreadRipper 3960X processors (with related reviews) and the first motherboards based on the TRX40 platform. As for the top model, Ryzen ThreadRipper 3990X , the specifications will be released only in January 2020 , close to the actual availability on the market.

The aforementioned document does not refer to the technical characteristics of the new chips (number of cores, frequencies, TDP etc.), however, the recent sighting on the Ashes of the Singularity database of the Ryzen ThreadRipper 3960X with 24 cores (link in VIA ) suggests that AMD could present at least 4 models. Here's how the new Ryzen ThreadRipper 3000 lineup could be made up:

Ryzen ThreadRipper 3960X: 24 cores / 48 threads

Ryzen ThreadRipper 3970X: 32core / 64 threads

Ryzen ThreadRipper 3980 (W) X: 48core / 96 threads (?)

Ryzen ThreadRiper 3990 (W): 64core / 128 threads

For the moment, AMD has not commented on the news, so we await further developments and above all direct confirmation from the manufacturer


MediaTek Helio G90, G90T Officially Announced to Help Make Gaming Phones Affordable

The mobile gaming industry has swelled exponentially over the past year, thanks to one battle royale title, witnessing a major shift in what users desire from their smartphones. This led Qualcomm to unveil their first-ever gamer-centric chipset earlier this year. Well, the American chipmaker has since also launched a souped-up variant of its Snapdragon 855 flagship chipset as well.

MediaTek has been rumored to be launching a new chipset to take on Qualcomm’s ever-growing dominance. And well, it’s doing just that with the launch of its first dedicated gamer-centric Helio G90 and G90T chipset. They’ll enable low-latency, stutter-free gameplay and better performance at lower price points.

MediaTek Helio G90 series includes octa-core chipsets, which utilize the Cortex-A76 and Cortex-A55 CPU architecture. These are paired with the Mali-G76 3EEMC4 GPU, with speeds of up to 800MHz. This is higher than even the 672MHz overclock speed of the Adreno 640 GPU in Snapdragon 855 Plus. You can include up to 10GB of LPDDR4x RAM, with peak frequency up to 2133MHz. MediaTek has also bundled a large L3 cache and is offering speeds up to 2.05GHz for smoother gameplay and app performance.

Boasting about the capabilities of the new Helio G90 chipset, TL Lee, General Manager of MediaTek’s Wireless Communication business unit in an official statement said, “With the Helio G90 series, you get a super-fast and responsive display, reduced lag for smoother gameplay – because every millisecond counts in the gaming world. Whether it’s Fortnite, PUBG or other top titles, this chip is a gaming powerhouse.”

One of the most striking features of the Helio G90 & G90T chipsets has to be MediaTek’s HyperEngine game technology. It’s a software feature which is said to ‘tune the entire smartphone for the greatest gaming experience possible.’ HyperEngine is a collection of software features that sees to the fact that the gameplay isn’t hampered in any possible way.

MediaTek Helio G90 will allow the smartphone to connect with two Wi-Fi bands (both the 2.4GHz/5GHz) for improved latency, won’t drop the data connection when you receive a call, and kick in WiFi+LTE concurrency when the network quality starts to degrade. This chipset also packs a rapid response engine to improve in-game action-to-display speeds using touch acceleration.

The HyperEngine also works to deliver optimum performance via CPU and GPU resource management, improving power consumption for longer gameplay times. Finally, it packs support for HDR10 standard with a 10-bit color depth for vivid photos on HDR-supported screens.

Moving past the hardware specs, the Helio G90 series also supports up to 64MP cameras because that’s the latest fad. Phone makers can use multi-camera configurations, with a triple-ISP design backing the hardware. This helps optimize power and performance while also offering night shot mode, AI facial unlock, and much more.

MediaTek hasn’t pointed out the difference in the Helio G90 and G90T chipset, but we’re assuming that it’s got to do with peak clock frequency. We should expect to see phones (possibly, first from Realme) powered by the Helio G90 in the next couple of months. Do tell us your opinion on this gamer-centric chipset in the comments below.

MediaTek Helio G: mobile gaming SoCs should arrive on July 30th

MediaTek's new mobile SoC family dedicated to gaming could be the protagonist of the event that the chipmaker will hold in a few days, on July 30th. The series should be called Helio G (G as Gaming, of course) and a first model has already been sighted. In fact, a teaser published a few days ago spoke of Helio G90 , without revealing any technical details. Also the new teaser, visible here on the side, has a clearly gaming matrix, which supports the theory that Helio G will be the protagonists of the event.

The niche of mobile hardware specialized in gaming is expanding: even if it was not without improved aspects ( updates in the first place ), the arrival of the first dedicated smartphones (including ASUS ROG Phone 1 and 2 , Xiaomi Black Shark 1 and 2 , Razer Phone 1 and 2 ) gave the market a shock that even the chipmakers seem to have noticed. The main advantages of some of the latest SoCs presented, such as Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus and HiSilicon Kirin 810, are found just on the GPU side. Appointment then in a few days to find out how the Helio G. family will be structured.


Apple announces acquisition of Intel's cellular modem business for a billion dollars

Earlier this week, it was reported that Apple would be acquiring Intel's smartphone modem business. Today, Apple announced the billion-dollar deal. The original report was pretty spot-on, with the deal being worth $1B and it including patents, employees, and equipment. The deal is expected to close in the fourth quarter of this year.

“This agreement enables us to focus on developing technology for the 5G network while retaining critical intellectual property and modem technology that our team has created,” said Intel CEO Bob Swan. “We have long respected Apple and we’re confident they provide the right environment for this talented team and these important assets moving forward. We’re looking forward to putting our full effort into 5G where it most closely aligns with the needs of our global customer base, including network operators, telecommunications equipment manufacturers and cloud service providers.”

With this deal, 2,200 Intel employees will join Apple, and the company says that it will now hold more than 17,000 wireless technology patents, now that it has absorbed Intel's patents.

Interestingly, Intel will still be able to make cellular modems, just not for smartphones. That means that if you buy a PC that connects to a 4G LTE network, it could have an Intel modem.

But Intel's entire cellular business has been struggling. Back in February, Intel announced that its 5G modem would be delayed until 2020. After Apple and Qualcomm settled their legal disputes, Intel said it was canceling its 5G plans altogether, just hours later. 5G PCs are coming next year, and Intel clearly won't be a part of that, so while the firm can continue to make modems for PCs, it clearly won't be a part of that next generation.

While today's deal should give Apple what it needs to get involved with 5G without relying on Qualcomm, don't expect to see it this year. After all, new iPhones will be announced in about a month and a half, and this deal won't be finalized until the fourth quarter of this year. 2020 or 2021 seems more likely for a 5G iPhone, and most customers won't have access to the technology until then anyway.


AMD responds to Nvidia with lower prices for its new Radeon GPUs

Last month at E3, AMD announced new Radeon GPUs which threatened to put a dent in some on Nvidia's RTX offerings thanks to their comparatively lower prices. In response to the impending release of AMD's cards, Nvidia decided to fight back with the new RTX Super cards earlier this week, which offer more performance for the same price, save for the RTX 2060 Super.

Now, in a nearly perfect demonstration of why competition is good, AMD has responded to the green team's new offerings by lowering the price of the new Radeon RX 5700 series of GPUs before they're even officially released. In a tweet posted earlier today, the red team announced that the Radeon RX 5700, 5700 XT, and 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition will all start at lower price points than originally expected.

As such, the Radeon RX 5700 will now start at $349, $30 below the original price. The RX 5700 XT will now cost $399 instead of $449, and the RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition will cost $449 instead of $499. That means that each of the cards now matches the prices of Nvidia's RTX 2060, 2060 Super, and 2070 Super, respectively. Here's a rundown of the specs in AMD's cards:

AMD has been gaining some popularity in both the CPU and GPU markets, thanks in no small part to the fact that its offerings usually undercut the price of Nvidia and Intel's competing products. Nvidia's response may have come as something of a surprise, but AMD isn't giving up, and ultimately, that's better for gamers, who now have more choices at more compelling price points.
