“Intel continues to push the envelope for desktop gaming with the new 12th Gen Intel Core i9-12900KS processor. Based on Intel’s 12th Gen performance hybrid architecture, this processor can hit 5.5 GHz on up to two cores for the first time, giving the most extreme gamers the ability to maximize performance,” said Marcus Kennedy, general manager of Gaming, Creator & Esports Segment at Intel.

The unlocked i9-12900KS processor is the ultimate processor for enthusiasts and gamers who want the fastest processor available. With 16 cores (eight Performance-cores and eight Efficient-cores) and 24 threads, and up to 5.5GHz max turbo frequency, 150W Processor Base Power, and 30MB Intel Smart Cache for even more gaming power and performance,” the company said in a statement.

Key features and capabilities of the i9-12900KS include:

  • Up to 5.5 GHz max turbo frequency with Intel Thermal Velocity Boost.
  • Intel Adaptive Boost Technology for improved gaming performance by opportunistically allowing higher multi-core turbo frequencies.
  • 16 cores (eight P-cores and eight E-cores), 24 threads, 150W Processor Base Power, 30MB Intel Smart Cache, and PCIe Gen 5.0 and 4.0 support.
  • Up to DDR5 4800 MT/s and DDR4 3200 MT/s support.
  • Chipset compatible with existing Z690 motherboards with the latest BIOS recommended for the best gaming experience.

The i9-12900KS processor allows gamers and overclocking enthusiasts to take performance to the next level.

This special edition processor will be available beginning April 5th with a recommended customer price starting at $739. It can be found at retailers worldwide as a boxed processor and integrated into systems from Intel’s channel and OEM partners.

TEAMGROUP Launches ELITE PLUS DDR5 Memory Modules

Published

on

TEAMGROUP has launched the ELITE PLUS DDR5 Desktop Memory with a brand new heat sink design to effectively increase reliability. Furthermore, TEAMGROUP has announced a new frequency of 6,000MHz for ELITE DDR5 to further increase operating performance and deliver an ultra-smooth user experience.

ELITE PLUS DDR5 Desktop Memory is equipped with a sleek, simple, and asymmetric aluminium heat sink that has been specially designed to be non-conductive and to protect against scratches, acids, rusting and rotting to provide full protection for the DDR5 module. ELITE PLUS DDR5 Desktop Memory is also equipped with a 1.1V standard working voltage which further reduces energy consumption for each unit of bandwidth compared to the 1.2V in DDR4, providing a more efficient power usage.

The DDR5 module is equipped with PMICs for effective power distribution, reliable power supply, and minimal noise interference. The IC supports on-die ECC, a feature that self-corrects DRAM cells for enhanced stability and reliability by reducing risks of information errors. The ELITE PLUS DDR5 modules are designed to be perfectly compatible with Intel and AMD systems and come with three frequencies: 4800MHz, 5600MHz, and 6000MHz, in single/dual channel options from 8GB to 32GB of storage capacity to satisfy a wide range of user demands.

CORSAIR Launches VENGEANCE RGB DDR5 Memory

Published

on

CORSAIR has announced VENGEANCE RGB DDR5 memory, equipping the celebrated VENGEANCE RGB, a top choice for performance enthusiasts, with DDR5 technology. Optimised for the latest gaming PCs and workstations, and available in black or white colour options, these modules deliver sensational DDR5 performance with stunning RGB style.

Launching initially in speeds up to 6,400MT/s and capacities up to 32GB (2x16GB), with frequencies up to 6,600MT/s and 2x32GB kits available soon, VENGEANCE RGB DDR5 lights up your system with a modern new design illuminated by brilliant RGB while delivering the higher frequencies, greater capacities, and faster performance of DDR5.

VENGEANCE RGB DDR5 boasts dynamic, individually addressable ten-zone RGB lighting, encased in a panoramic light bar that wraps around the top of each module. The result is a seamless light array – highly visible from a wide range of angles – illuminating your system with vivid lighting effects. Powerful CORSAIR iCUE software enables customizable RGB lighting control for detailed, synchronized lighting with the rest of your iCUE-compatible setup – or unlocking even greater immersion with real-time RGB lighting integration when playing select games.

iCUE also saves custom Intel XMP 3.0 profiles to control your memory’s performance by app or task for maximizing efficiency, as well as controlling onboard voltage regulation to achieve more finely-tuned, stable overclocking than previous generations which relied on only motherboard BIOS control. With these software features at your command, you can take your system to unprecedented levels of performance on 12th Generation Intel Core processors and select Z690 motherboards.

As with all CORSAIR DDR5 memory, VENGEANCE RGB DDR5 modules are built with only hand-sorted, tightly-screened memory chips to ensure consistently high frequencies, atop performance PCBs for excellent signal quality and stability. Cooling these chips is a stylish solid aluminium heat spreader that efficiently conducts heat away from your memory while complementing your system’s modern aesthetic. A limited lifetime warranty grants you peace of mind that your new memory will last throughout your PC’s lifespan and future upgrades.

When it comes to cutting-edge memory performance and mesmerizing RGB to match, CORSAIR lights the way with VENGEANCE RGB DDR5. CORSAIR VENGEANCE RGB DDR5 Memory is available immediately from the CORSAIR webstore and the CORSAIR worldwide network of authorized retailers and distributors. CORSAIR VENGEANCE RGB DDR5 Memory is backed by a limited lifetime warranty, alongside the CORSAIR worldwide customer service and technical support network.

AMD Announces Zen 4 Dragon Range and Phoenix APUs for 2023

Published

on

AMD has released an updated roadmap detailing the chipmaker’s Zen 4 plans. Dragon Range and Phoenix are mobile Zen 4 APUs that will replace AMD’s existing Ryzen 6000 (Rembrandt) product line. Dragon Range will power enthusiast gaming laptops, whereas Phoenix targets thin and light gaming devices. Surprisingly, AMD didn’t specify what process node or the type of graphics that Dragon Range and Phoenix could be using. For reference, Rembrandt is on TSMC’s 6nm manufacturing process and wields RDNA 2 graphics.

According to the AMD, Dragon Range will feature the “highest core, thread, and cache ever for a mobile gaming CPU.” Although AMD didn’t specify just how many Zen 4 cores, rumor has it that Dragon Range could potentially sport up to 16 cores, which would be insane for a gaming or workstation laptop.

Feature-wise, Dragon Range and Phoenix arrive with PCIe 5.0 support. The former, however, leverages DDR5 memory while the latter is on LPDDR5 memory. Ex-Anandtech editor Ian Cutress has confirmed with AMD that the Zen 4 chips’ “exact mem support may include other technologies to be announced later.” Furthermore, since the APUs compete in different segments, they adhere to specific thermal limits. Dragon Range, for example, features a TDP of 55W and higher, whereas Phoenix plays within the 35W to 45W range.

AMD has already given the hardware world a small teaser of Ryzen 7000 (Raphael), so we already know the processors will arrive before the end of the year to replace the Ryzen 5000 (Vermeer) stack. Like its other Zen 4 brethren, Raphael boasts support for PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 while debuting with a 65W+ TDP.

Raphael will hit the shelves in the second half of the year, and if AMD’s illustration is accurate, we may be looking at a late launch in September. In a nutshell, Raphael brings Zen 4 to the mainstream market, commanding TSMC’s 5nm process node and a new AM5 platform. Unfortunately, the AM5 platform may be costly for consumers as we’ve confirmed with multiple sources that Raphael only supports DDR5 memory, which currently carries a hefty premium.
