CES 2020: NVIDIA Turing Laptops – ASUS 360hz Gaming Monitor !



Leo and Luke are over at CES in Las Vegas this week for all the latest on the newest releases. Today they spent some time with Nvidia to look at the plethora of new turing laptops they are bringing out with partners in 2020.

140 Turing laptops on the market
Around 60 with Max Q

Asus Zephyrus G14:
• World’s first 14″ laptop with RTX.
• RTX 2060 Max Q
• 65W TGP
• Enables new power in the 14” ultraportable form factor, especially with its slender chassis and low weight

HP Omen X 2S:
• Showing off dual-screen laptop, even if the secondary screen is really small compared to the ASUS version
• Both screens can be powered by the Nvidia GPU (not as if 1 has been physically wired to the Intel iGPU only)

RTX Studio and Creators:
***pics – RTX Studio Laptop, HP AIO Davinci AI GeForce, ASUS ProArt, Nvidia Gaugan
• RTX studio makes a lot of sense as creators don’t constantly want driver updates for new games that they don’t care about if just doing Premiere and other Adobe stuff – makes sense
• Showing Adobe Premiere Pro doing video reframing for usage on different screen resolutions (e.g. mobile phone) and using AI with the GPU acceleration to do the task.
• ASUS ProArt StudioBook One Quadro RTX 6000 shows what power can be put inside a laptop. Already seen at IFA but Nvidia confirmed that they worked hard with ASUS to do the design especially for cooling.
o The demo was showing a really heavy CAD image of a person that was rendering when selected and moved. Pushing the CUDA capability of the RTX 6000 Quadro very hard indeed
• HP AIO PC with up to RTX 2080 Max-Q. The system was surprisingly sleek. Using the GPU to do AI-based computation for inserting intermediate frames into slowed down 8K R3D footage. With this mode, the video looked choppy but with the AI smoothing feature, the inserted frames helped smooth motion. A few seconds of this test footage took a few mins to complete the smoothing task on a GeForce power system, Intel iGPU should be far longer, and CPU only was around an hour.
• Nvidia Gaugan is a cool feature that uses AI inference to try to infer what is trying to be drawn on a screen with a pen. Cool feature and useful for artists who need a quick, basic model

LG OLED:
• More new TVs announced – 2020 OLED TVs – and they have G-Sync support with a HDMI 2.1 VRR graphics card. Interesting to see LG catering for G-Sync users inside its TVs.

Acer and ASUS G-Sync Ultimate monitors:
• 4k 144Hz
• 1152 local dimming zones
• HDR up to 1400 nits peak brightness
• G-Sync ultimate
• Really good colours thanks to the local dimming zones. Very high peak brightness.
• Not sure on price, but probably very expensive

ASUS 360Hz gaming monitor:
• Showing the differences versus even 240Hz in some games and the e-sports type game on screen was smoother on 360Hz when viewing things like health bars and names.
• Designed for competitive gamers and enthusiasts of games such as CS:GO
• Showed a CS:GO demo where people could generally improve their shooting performance versus 60Hz monitor

Leo Says 48 – Intel 7nm sounds AWFUL



Leo is back after quite a hiatus, as he was busy getting down a backlog of review samples. He has finally had some time to pass over his thoughts on Intel 7NM, after watching Linus rip them apart. Leo was rather impressed with what Linus had to say.

LEOS notes:
Linus and his XMP video.
Overclocking Core i9-10900K delivers limited returns so restricting DDR4 speed on chipsets below Z490 looks like a kick in the teeth for Intel’s enthusiast customers.

Leo Says 48 – Intel 7nm Sounds Awful

Intel’s recent financial call was a bit of an eye opener

AMD share price overtakes Intel following on from Intel 10nm and 7nm delays

Bob Swan is ‘not pleased with our 7nm process performance’
Intel 7nm is 12 months behind schedule, which will delay 7nm products by 6 months. A few days later Bob Swan reorganised Intel’s structure and Murthy Renduchintala, the Boss of 7nm, found he no longer had a job

Intel Makes Changes to Technology Organization

10nm has been a slow rolling, on-going disaster and now 7nm seems to be going the same way. According to a source for Jim at Adored TV ‘7 is looking worse than 10.’

Intel is due to ship Aurora Supercomputer in 2021

Images: US Department of Energy and Intel to Deliver First Exascale Supercomputer


using Sapphire Rapids and Ponte Vecchio

Intel stated that Ponte Vecchio Xe graphics would be made on 7nm
https://newsroom.intel.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/11/2019/11/Ponte-Vecchio.pdf
Ponte Vecchio is due to ship late 2021 or early 2022
which sounds like 7nm will start shipping too late for Aurora. It sounds like Aurora will be getting the very first Ponte Vecchio graphics so let’s hope they work correctly.

KitGuru: Is the hardware for Aurora still Sapphire Rapids and Ponte Vecchio?
Intel: Aurora is built on Sapphire Rapids and Ponte Vecchio. Sapphire Rapids is a next generation, 10nm-based Xeon Scalable Processor that will offer advances in performance, AI, and other areas. Sapphire Rapids will be the CPU used in the Aurora Exascale supercomputer system at Argonne National Lab. It will continue our strategy of built-in AI acceleration with a new accelerator called Advanced Matrix Extensions (AMX). We expect to start initial production shipments of Sapphire Rapids in the second half of 2021. Our data center GPU design, “Ponte Vecchio”, will now be released in late 2021 or early 2022 utilizing external and internal process technologies combined with our world-leading packaging technologies.

If Intel cannot deliver 10nm Ice Lake Server at the end of 2020, and Intel 7nm is truly even worse than 10nm, it is entirely possible they will have permanently stalled on process.
We have seen Glo Flo get stuck at 12nm and the usual thing is that once a company gets stuck there is no way back.
In Intel’s case moving on from Skylake to to Sunny Cove, Willow Cove and Golden Cove even if it is on 14nm should bring substantial benefits so failing at 10nm and 7nm is far from good but might not be the end of the road for PC enthusiasts and gamers.

Intel 11th Gen Rocket Lake with Willow Cove architecture, PCIe Gen 4 and Core i9 with 8C/16T. The rumour is that 11th Gen Core i7 will have with 8 cores and 12 threads. The fact it will be on 14nm is, relatively speaking, a mere detail.

Intel 12th Gen Alder Lake with DDR5, Golden Cove architecture and a combination of 8 desktop cores and 8 Atom cores.
In Hybrid mode it seems Hyper Threading will be disabled.
If Alder Lake is going to use 10nm Intel needs to get its house in order right now, otherwise we shall be seeing yet another 14nm desktop CPU.
