In a recent interview, AMD explained the benefits of its new SmartAccess Storage (SAS) tech which it debuted at Computex. The company also confirmed that not all NVMe SSDs are SAS ready.
Intel is in its infancy in the discrete graphics card market and as such, its Arc Alchemist GPUs as well as last gen DG1 have certain issues which are related to its DTT and PCIe 4.0 respectively.
While Nvidia has already added PCIe 5.0 power support to its recently launched RTX 3090 Ti, the company is reportedly skipping the addition of PCIe 5.0 bus support on its RTX 4000 Ada Lovelace GPUs.
AMD's new Navi 23-based budget cards, the Radeon RX 6500 XT and the RX 6400 are limited to just four channels of PCIe bandwidth. The cards also lack AV1 decoding and H.265/ HEVC encoding support.
Thanks to the ongoing Cyber Monday and Black Friday sales, NVMe SSDs from Corsair, Gigabyte, and Samsung are all selling for excellent prices. We have made a compilation of the best deals.
Intel's Alder Lake-S compatible 600 series motherboards may not all feature the new PCIe 5.0 technology according to a new report. The motherboard models seem to not indicate this difference clearly.
