Assembla che Passa # 258


Budget Configuration Gaming Configuration Extra Configuration Assembla che Passa is a weekly column that collects the main novelties related to PC gaming hardware and offers three configurations, divided by price range, designed for those who want to assemble or update your machine. As usual, suggestions are welcome and corrections welcome, as long as the tones are adequate. Another tip is to read the paragraphs that present the configurations before battling in the comments.

This week we start from AMD and the novelty of the moment, the Ryzen 4000G processors with integrated graphics on the same CPU die that , although linked to the Zen 2 architecture and not to the Zen 3 arriving with the Ryzen 4000 desktops, promise a great leap in terms of brute power and something more also for the graphics, still based on the old GCN philosophy but revised to improve the consumption. In fact, the computing units dedicated to graphics are decreasing, improving consumption, compared to an advantage of 17% for the 4700G compared to the 3400G. But it is clear that the jump in terms of graphics power is modest, especially considering that it is reduced to 6% with the Ryzen 5 4600G, effective replacement of the 3400G, to reach about 12% more than the 3200G, as regards the Ryzen 3 4300G. It is not on this, however, that AMD aims, satisfied with having the only integrated solutions capable of reaching 1080p gaming, albeit not without compromise.

The goal of Ryzen 4000G is the increase in terms of brute power, obtained by combining the architecture, the Zen 2 with a greater number of cores become 8, multi-threaded, for the 4700G, up to 152% more powerful than its predecessor. A jump from the deep that makes the new GPUS are suitable also loads of professional, multitasking, and video cards to the extreme, with the efficiency of 7 nanometers, which is combined with that of the GPU, ensuring a sense in which processors do not need to raise the bar of graphics in a sector in which AMD has a large advantage. Of course, we would have preferred to see solutions Ships and maybe 1080p without compromises managed by an integrated solution, but with the arrival of Intel Xe and the intensification of the competitive environment it is likely that this will happen by the end of 2021.

In the meantime, the players 'attention is largely directed towards processors Ryzen 4000 of the family Vermeer thanks to' architecture Zen 3 promise to retrieve the last mile compared to the competition, even in games that favor certain characteristics. A promise that we will soon verify, as confirmed by AMD during the presentation of Ryzen 4000G and as stated officially by Rick Bergman, vice-chairman of the department Computing and Graphics made by AMD, has finally spoken explicitly of the arrival of consumer products by the end of 2020. Statements that lead us to hope for an exit in tandem with the new Radeon will have to contend with stiff competition, what confirmed to be a new rumor about a 3080 faster than 20% of a 2080 You with confirming a progress of performance important, but which might surprise us if the rumor circulating for a few weeks, would prove to be true. In fact, it speaks of a 50% performance boost on RTX 2080 You for the card, Radeon Ships 2X peak which, according to an indiscretion, the most recent monterebbe 16GB memory bus to 384-bit, which suggests the use of VRAM GDDR6 and not the HBM2. No price extreme and then to the cards that point to give battle to the competition, which probably will result in a launch up close and personal.

In the case of the GeForce RTX 3000 speaks from time of presentation in August and a launch in September, what is already confirmed several times from march to today, and the reappearance on the pages of Overclocking as a rumor seemingly confirmed by new sources. Nothing new then, for information that we already take for granted from time to time, but the emergence of a re-election is important because the period. These days, with the Covid that is rampant, the risk of postponement is without a doubt concrete, but for now it seems that the plans remain those disclosed in recent months by the various companies, with a September that promises to be a month extremely important for the PC market.

At the doors of autumn, we will see that, in all likelihood, the already mentioned Intel GPU Xe, we will probably something more concrete about the new AMD Ships 2X and we will see ray tracing become a standard, at least for the mid range cards, high and extreme. In addition, with the approach of the end of the year we expect some concrete information on the number of CPU Alder Lake, the first family of Intel processors desktop to 10 nanometers and the first real new architecture of the company for a long time. An important appointment, so, since at that point AMD will be in the midst of preparations for a generational change, and probably will point to 5 nanometers, trying to take advantage of a further slowdown of Intel which, as stated, is not going to come to 7 nanometers until the end of 2022. For this it will be important to the role of architecture, as well as the efficiency and effective of the transistor which depends not only on the production process, in a battle that promises to be epoch-making.

Set a Budget

The configuration budget is aimed at saving but it is said that there is no space for the upgrade where you have interesting perspectives. The proposals in this band include solutions designed for the games at a low technical profile and build oriented to 1080p.

While the Ryzen 3 3300X continues to cost something more than we would like, the Ryzen 3 3100 it become even more economic and is confirmed as one of the most attractive options in the low end, at least for those who watch the performance in the game and not the brute power. In any case, is multithreaded, and can recover a lot of ground on big brother thanks to the edge to overclock pretty good.

with regards To the GPU this week we aim to a greater amount of memory, and this means that we move on to the RX 580 view of the small difference in price compared to the RX 570 8GB which still draws less benefit from the doubling of the VRAM. Also in this case, among other things, we find a model XFX's rather cheap, but we spend something more for one of the better versions, one made by Sapphire.

Configuration Gaming

In the end gaming usually are those components that allow you to tackle the game on a PC without fear and to hold on for some time. The yield of the accounts with the frame rate is just around the corner, but with a good base, you can always sell the GPU is old before it depreciates in value too, so buy a new battery, just in time to tackle the next blockbuster video game breaks the hardware.

Among our favorite options in the new offer, Intel is the Core i5-10400F, strong, of good performance in the game without the need for any overclock, and definitely the most palatable of the Core i5-9400F thanks to the price similar to its predecessor, despite the addition of Hyper-Threading. It is still more interesting with the arrival of the motherboards B460, less expensive Z490.

The decline of about 20 euro in the budget for processor and motherboard, also brings us this week to choose a GeForce RTX 2060, made decidedly more attractive by the arrival of the DLSS 2.0 that ensures that even the 4K with Death Stranding, by setting the technology in the performance mode. Among other things, we can expect a net increase in support for the upscaling NVIDIA, probably destined to move to version 3.0 with the arrival of the RTX 3000.

Extra Configuration

The configuration push has a meaning only for the one who aims at high resolutions, aware that luxury often does not go hand-in-hand with rationality. On the other hand, let's face it, who does not like to have a nice engine under the hood even if there is to adhere to the speed limit?

Close to the competition in terms of performance single thread, the Ryzen 3900X is not the best for gaming in 1080p, but it provides a lot of brute power, is suitable to a configuration that looks to 1440p or 4Ke includes a heat sink sufficient to keep him at bay to the agreement not to engage in the stress test. We do, however, we rely on a fan of high-end, which keeps the processor between 60 and 70 degrees under load.

The imminent arrival of the video cards of new generation of AMD and NVIDIA, buy a GPU at this moment is far from recommended. But it can happen to have acute needs that we'll fill with the end solution definitely high, without, however, flowing into the extreme luxury of the RTX 2080 You. But the RTX 2080 Super ensures, however, framerate is high in 1440p, if the quarry in 4K with several titles, and comes to the Ultra HD with a framerate supported with the titles that they have the support for the DLSS 2.0.
