Intel May Cut Prices in Response to AMD Ryzen 1700 Launch

Sometimes companies cuts the prize for its product to boost its sales or sometimes it is forced by the competitor. Intel is gradually cutting down the price for its popular Core i5 and i7 chipsets processors in order to remain competitive in the market after AMD launch of new processor line up. AMD Ryzen has simply taken the industry by storm with highly competitive pricing which can do a lot more damage for the Intel within a short while.

New Pricing for Intel Core processors

Intel has slashed the prices for its Core processor range in a dramatic fashion. The Core i7-7700K has fallen from $380 to $300, Core i-7600K from $270 to $200 while Core i5-6600K dropped to $179 from $270. The adjusted price after the launch of the Ryzen series has emerged on the Micro Center but there is no confirmation it has been done by Intel or is it a part of Micro Center promotion. This pricing can only be seen on the Micro Center website but same isn’t true for the Amazon website where prices had remained unchanged.

Currently AMA has seized multiple spots on the Amazon’s top selling microprocessor lists which were earlier populated with the Intel Core series offerings. In the month of October last year Intel had as many as 12 microprocessors in the top 15 list with an average price of $264. AMD only had three slots for itself during the same time with its X-6300, FX 8350 and FX 8320 processors. Today AMD holds 6 slots in the list while Intel is having just 9 for itself. This shows that the competitive pricing followed by the AMD is helping it in improving the sales on the Amazon.

Pricing plays a crucial role in the sale of processors

The pricing present at the Micros Center can be stated as the new normal or stable pricing for Intel processor for some time to come. Apart from a number of factors comes into play when something thinks about a particular bran do processor. As per user need it can be easily assumed that people will go for the Ryzen 7 1700 when they have to deal multi-threaded applications and parallel workloads. If the user is looking for a single threaded performance along with gaming then Core i7-7700K is the best choice.

Intel has been quick to cut the price of the Core i5 series which suggests a pre-emptive move before AMD launches the new Ryzen 5 counterparts. If a customer is looking for a processor which can offer credible multi-threaded performance along with a decent single threaded scaling then Core i7-6800K is a better option. But on the pricing front people might get tempted to opt for Ryzen 1700K as it is $40 cheaper than Intel’s $550 pricing for 6800K variant. Quite interestingly AMD is keeping a strong hold over multiple slots in the top-selling CPU lists which are certainly going to show in its Q1 earning at the end of March.

Intel may be prepping new Core i5, i7 processors to attack AMD Ryzen

AMD will launch its new Ryzen in early March, and Intel is continuously making changes in order to give a good competition to AMD. Intel seems to be taking an intelligent move otherwise the chip that AMD is about to launch will turn out to be a potent threat to Intel. In 2003, Chipzilla was made to develop the Pentium 4 Extreme Edition so that they can survive in terms of the threat from Athlon 64, which is still known for wounding up so many winning games and several number of benchmarks for the consumers. Intel is concerned that they do not have to repeat the same situation, or they have to face the consequences if AMD would point change in prices that to in such a way that it might out run existing product stack of Intel.

Intel has also added Hyper-Threading to the family of Pentium, to avoid any risk of losing the market. We know that it is not common for a company to ramp up a faster version of core that to within a time period of just two months. This is generally heard to be done when a competitor launches their version of faster chip. But, since AMD is almost at the verge of presenting a vital architectural revision, so it is understandable on the part of Intel that why it is bent on propagating new launches of its own.

This can be viewed in a different way as it is all about manipulating all the competitors of the market by arranging them in a line so that they rage a war even if they do not have a great business plan in their mind. For more than a decade, Intel maintains a stable desktop plan. Pentium chips are known to be standing on modern Core architectures, but they move with a very low speed that too without Hyper-Threading. Whereas, Core i3 chips maintain a much faster speeds, along with Turbo frequencies, and Hyper Threading. Core i5 gives the same speed as Core i3 but are equipped with four cores that too without HT, whereas Core i7 are the highest ranks Cores of Intel that includes a HT back.

Intel have already lost the ground by switching on to Hyper-Threading in terms of its newly developed processors, but it would not be same as the difference that lies at the high speed. The difference between chips of Core i5 and Core i7 stands banal if Core i5 includes HT with it. Research have revealed that it does not really matter that how many Cores Intel go on increasing it will cost them the same price. and even if Intel is planning to make any changes, it is obvious that they do it on their own timeline instead of AMD’s.

Before reaching to any conclusion we need to keep in mind that this is not the time of Good Oi Days, when the frequency of CPU will flow almost like any liquid. Thus, necessary changes should be made in keeping this point in mind.

Leaked Details, If True, Point To Potent AMD Zen CPU

It has been more than a year that the potential new about the next-generation CPU architecture from AMD, and it has been code named which known as Zen however it is running in the fantasy of the fans of the company as well as among the people who are looking for more efficient competitor when compared to Intel. The technical configuration can differ, but all geeks should be ready to see the next generation chip full of wallop. The leaked slide is only a part of the highest-end part.

Even though the slide has manage to capture more than required focus, details of the chip might have drastic changes in terms of what it appears now and how it will be at the time of the launch. For instance, the leaked slide itself might not be accurate.

Reports from Fudzilla indicates that this new CPU will be able to offer nearly 16 Zen cores, in which each of the core will be further supporting 2 threads out of the total 32 threads. Rumors also suggest that this new core will be using Simultaneous Multithreading, which is completely opposite to the Clustered Multi-Threading on which the AMD has debuted as part of the Bulldozer family and has been in use for the past 4 years.

Every core has been backed up by 512K of L2 cache and with 32MB of L3 cache will be seen throughout the entire core. This clearly depicts that the L3 structure has been inspired from the Bulldozer. If AMD will be come over from the cache there might be a improvement in the performance. The new integrated GPU will also be offering double-precision floating point at every 1/2 single-precision speed.

Is it too good to be believed? 

The CPU layout shown in the leaked slide makes a lot of sense to everyone. People can clearly see at the modular part and AMD part wherein the Zen module consists 8 threads and 2MB of L2, some unbelievable L3 cache as well as of 4 CPU cores,. Nevertheless, what has been able to raise eyebrows among all the fans includes 64 lanes of PCIe 3.0, HBM interface, and quad-channel DDR4.

The reason being, the highest end servers from Intel pack comes with 32 PCI-Express lanes and even though the Quad-channel DDR4 is available, Intel can only support 4x DDR4-2133. You have to believe that HBM has arrived and the day is not far when it will integrate with servers and desktops since 16GB of HBM memory makes a whole lot of difference. However the Zen’s 512GBs memory interface is one of the most important achievements. This CPU is expected to be unveiled in another 12 to 18 months in the world of server.

AMD will be able to create history if they are able to meet the power consumption and IPC targets. Still the details have not yet been confirmed. It is expected that in coming days it will be big if company will be able to launch the device with 64 lanes of PCI-Express, a totally revamped CPU, integrated graphics processor and 16GB of HBM memory.

AMD Released Warsaw Opterons With Lower TDP

Warsaw Opterons
AMD have officially presented two Warsaw Opterons 6338P and 6370P. As expected, both are specified with 99 Watt TDP, the clock rates are correspondingly lower than that of the 115 -watt models published earlier in 2012. Without much notice, AMD has released two new Opteron models namely 6338P and 6370P.

Both server processors are compatible with the LGA socket G34 and are at a TPD of 99 watts higher performance per watt than their offer Abu Dhabi predecessor mentioned. The new CPUs are identified by the suffix P, arrange themselves but apart from that in the existing Opteron 6300 - a naming scheme: The 6338P over clocked under load with 2.0 to 2.5 GHz and the 6370P reached 2.3 to 2.8 GHz.

Thus, the Warsaw models are the slowest 12 - and 16-core Opteron processors in the line-up, only the Opteron 6366 HE is clocked even more lower. The relatively low frequencies and the mature 32- nanometer manufacturing allow AMD to specify the Warsaw chips with 99 watts, thereby increasing the efficiency will be higher than the 115 -watt models.

Calculation with base clock at baseline provides the 6338P a meager 3 percent higher performance per watt than the 6344, with turbo is 12 percent. Compared to the Abu Dhabi Opterons; the Warsaw processors increased efficiency in 2P and 4P servers.

The Warsaw processors use the older Piledriver architecture, two so-called Orochi. This will be connected in the MCM process by HT links on a carrier. This also results in the four- channel memory interface, bringing the chips are well suited for RAM - intensive applications in a comparatively low server.

AMD Plans Future Processor

Early next year , the company Advanced Micro Devices namely AMD will introduce next generation processors called Kaveri which are based on a microarchitecture Steamroller with fine engraving 28 nanometers. AMD is focused in the coming years APUs: "Kaveri" chips come in 2014, "Carrizo" models in 2015. The term APU means " Accelerated Processing Unit" . Special feature of them are the processors accommodate an integrated graphics solution.

 The fact that the market accepts the Combined chips, proved last Microsoft and Sony’s Playstation 4 and the Xbox One count of AMD APUs - both game consoles sold in the first few days over a million. In the coming years , AMD plans seem to expand its market share. The findings of a recently published roadmap that shows AMD's processor plans for the next few years.

Thus, following the current "Richland" APUs the "Kaveri" generation will Start from 2014 with improved chip architecture called "SteamrollerB". Also in terms of integrated graphics , there are new features , the advertising announcement "Next Gen AMD Radeon Graphic" suggests that it is the same architecture as the new AMD graphics cards. Functions such as "Mantle" and "True Audio" are likely to be available . A common memory controller for processor and graphics part is to speed up internal communication.

AMD continues to focus on the FM2 + socket. But that also means that there is still memory of the third generation will be used which is good for all upgraders. When AMD introduced the Even more uncertainty there is in the next- generation APU "Carrizo" . According Roadmap; AMD continues to use the current "Bolton" chipset. The maximum power dissipation is specified at 65 watts - certainly a result of the reduced to 20 nanometer manufacturing process. Depending on how the value is customizable.

One question remains , however: What happens to the processors without integrated graphics solution , such as the " Vishera " series for the AM3 + socket? Furthermore, the source provides information on the possible Carrizo successor. In connection with the code name "Basilisk " appear first rumors. One says that AMD Basilisk for a new processor socket with DDR4 support (presumably FM3) imagines.

New AMD Catalyst Graphics Driver Version 13.11 Beta 9.4 For Linux and Windows

AMD has announced the new AMD Catalyst Graphics Driver Version 13.11 Beta 9.4 for Linux and Windows. In cases, no revolution, just bug fixes and other minor improvements. This is the day; AMD put online certified WHQL drivers of its Catalyst 13.11 Windows release. From them, we hardly know anything, except that they bear the Radeon R9 290 and 290x. No doubt the official version now comes with the cards, which is expected to integrate the patch at the ventilation management.

Anyway, the company just announced that it posted its Catalysst 13.11 Beta 9.4. On Windows, it is understood question of support for the latest news, but also fixed a bug on Radeon R9 290 and 290x, which involved the loss of image or appearance of a black screen. The CrossFire support for Call of Duty; Ghosts has been improved while the Enduro technology profiles have been updated. Support for mobile chips is so far behind, through a dedicated driver.

Again, Linux is not forgotten. Indeed, the latest official drivers date from the end of May, and it is the Catalyst 13.4. Again, it come Catalyst 13.11 Beta 9.4; a unified numbering does not hide big change. Indeed, there is good support for Radeon R7 / R9, although the recent R9 270 missing in the official list, but only a few bugs is fixed. Level managed distributions; it generally lacks the latest versions. It is indeed a question of Ubuntu 13.04 but not 13.10, OpenSuse 12.1, but not 13.1, etc. The Linux kernel is, he supported up to version 3.12.

AMD announces eight-core FX-9590

This week was not only a stage for numerous gaming innovations, including fresh hardware seen in Los Angeles for the first time the light of the world. AMD, for example, presents the five-gigahertz monster FX 9590. The most popular chip maker AMD is particularly proud of to their new FX-9590. Because the processor based on the Piledriver architecture is the first of up to five gigahertz clock frequency. This is the new record reached the eight-core but only in Turbo mode, the default clock is 4.7 GHz. Disadvantage of the immense computing power, the priority is to inspire enthusiasts is the up to 220 watts power consumption. The Intel competitor takes less than half of the power, and also their own predecessors are much more modest. Their second chip rookie is named FX-9370. It is clocked at 4.7 GHz, but this is also consume up to 220 watts. The extreme power consumption places less demands on motherboards. Home users are likely but hardly the itch, because the new processors from AMD targets exclusively to OEM partners like Acer and Hewlett
