    Anandtech: Blink Quickly: Acer’s Predator Triton 500 Gets a 300 Hz Display

    Introduced earlier this year, Acer’s Predator Triton 500 turned out to be a formidable 15.6-inch gaming PC that brought together rather extreme performance and relatively compact dimensions. Starting this Fall, the machine will also get a display featuring a 300 Hz refresh rate, one of the first in the industry.
    The Acer Predator Triton 500 packs Intel’s six-core Core i7-8750H processor along with NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2060 or RTX 2080 with Max-Q into an all-metal chassis featuring a z-height of just 17.9 mm. The system can be further equipped with 16 GB or 32 GB of DDR4 memory, up to two 512 GB PCIe 3.0 x4 SSDs in RAID 0 mode for ultimate storage performance, and all the other things that you come to expect from a gaming-grade laptop.
    In a bid to make the Predator Triton 500 even more appealing to demanding gamers and esports professionals, Acer will offer it with a Full-HD display featuring a 300 Hz refresh rate as well as a 3 ms GtG response time. This LCD will of course cost a premium and will consume a lot of power, but since it is aimed at gamers requiring ultimate experience and performance, these are not the primary concerns.
    Acer has not disclosed exact configurations of the Predator Triton 500 with a 300 Hz display or their prices, but it is natural to expect the laptop to use the fastest GPU possible in a bid to take advantage of the extremely fast LCD.

    Anandtech: Samsung Announces Exynos 980 - Mid-Range With Integrated 5G Modem

    In a surprise announcement, Samsung today unveiled their very first SoC with integrated 5G connectivity. The new chipset isn’t a flagship follow-up to the Exynos 9825 and 9820, but rather a new entry to the mid-range and seemingly a follow-up to the Exynos 9610 chipset. Nevertheless, the new chip brings a slew of new firsts to the market which should help the new Exynos 980 to be extremely competitive with upcoming offerings from Qualcomm and MediaTek.

    The very odd thing about the Exynos 980 is its new naming scheme. This is the first time Samsung has opted for a three numeral scheme in its Exynos line-up which is certainly bound to be a bit confusing at the beginning, certainly also because of similarities in the naming to the Kirin 980. However it’s quite evident that this new chip looks to be a follow-up to the Exynos 9610. I’m questioning Samsung’s naming scheme here and how it’ll play out for its follow-up chips both in the mid-range and next flagship iterations.
    Nevertheless, the new Exynos 980 is the first chip to be announced to come with the new Cortex-A77 CPU from Arm. Whilst Samsung was able to jump the gun here in terms of announcement, we’re still expecting HiSilicon to be the first to market with a SoC with the new CPU in the next few weeks. Samsung’s integration of the new CPU within a mid-range SoC is quite aggressive, particularly seeing that the company lagged behind in this regard in previous generation Exynos SoCs such as the 9610. The A77 cores are clocked in at 2.2GHz which is naturally quite a bit less than what we expect of flagships, but the cores should be extremely efficient in this implementation. The two big cores are accompanied by 6 Cortex-A55’s at 1.8GHz, making this a octa-core SoC.
    The GPU on the Exynos 980 is the same as its last flagship SoCs, a Mali-G76, however this time it’s only in an MP5 configuration which is less than half the cores of its flagship counterpart. I’m expecting the clock frequency of this GPU to be a lot more aggressive than its flagship counter-part, so performance should be more than half, which is actually quite a good performance target relative to Qualcomm’s mid-range SoCs.
    The new chip is also the first mid-range from Samsung to integrate their in-house NPU architecture which the company promotes as augmenting camera capture abilities of the SoC platform.
    The biggest news however is the announcement that this is an SoC with integrated 5G modem. Although we still have to wait out the competition, it might be one of the first SoCs with such integrated connectivity. LTE connectivity corresponds to Category 16/18 with 1000/200Mbps download and upload speeds, enabled through 5CA/2CA connectivity. On top of the LTE connectivity, the chip also supports 5G NR Sub-6 with speeds of up to 2550/1280Mbps. Through E-UTRA-NR Dual Connecivity (EN-DC), the modem can bundle LTE and 5G NR together and achieve up to 3.55Gbps download speeds. This modem looks to lack mmWave capabilities, but given its mid-range positioning as well as global preference of Sub-6 5G connectivity, it looks to be a strategic decision based on cost-effectiveness.
    Also a first, is the fact that the new chip now integrates WiFi 6 (802.11ax). Samsung had started with its own WiFi connectivity solutions last year, integrating them into the SoCs, something we’ve yet to see implemented by vendors in the higher-end flagship SoCs which rely on external combo-chips.
    Finally, the SoC promises ISP camera ability to support up to 108MP sensors, which falls in line with S.LSI’s own 108MP Isocell camera sensor.
    The Exynos 980 is to start mass production by the end of the year and we’re likely to see devices shortly after. Overall, the chip seems unusually competitive for Samsung, showcasing quite a lot of firsts. Along with the new naming scheme, it feels a bit of a strategy shift compared to previous generation mid-range Exynos chips. Hopefully the new design enables Samsung to better compete for design wins outside of Samsung’s own Mobile division.

    Anandtech: It Hurtz a Lot: ASUS's New 300 Hz Laptops

    ASUS has been at the forefront of using displays with extreme refresh rates with its ROG-series gaming laptops. The company was the first to launch notebooks with a 120 Hz LCD in 2016, was the first to release a mobile PC with a 144 Hz monitor, and then the first to produce a laptop with a 240 Hz earlier this year. At IFA, the company is demonstrating the industry’s first laptops featuring a display with a 300 Hz refresh rate.
    Designed specifically for hardcore gamers and esports professionals on the go, the ASUS ROG Zephyrus S GX701 will be the world’s first notebook with a display supporting up to 300 Hz refresh rate and a 3 ms GtG response time. This machine will be available already in October, 2019. In addition, similar LCDs with a 300 Hz refresh rate and a 3 ms GtG response time will be featured on a prototype ROG Zephyrus S GX502 as well as on the 15-inch and 17-inch models of the ROG Strix Scar III.
    ASUS does not disclose the maker of its 300 Hz/3 ms display panels, though it is highly likely that the company uses panels with a 240 Hz native refresh rate in overdrive mode. What is noteworthy is that production 240 Hz ROG Zephyrus S GX701 and ROG Zephyrus S GX502 will feature factory-calibrated displays with Pantone Validation, so in addition to gamers, these machines will also be appreciated by professionals who use color-critical applications.
    When it comes to other hardware used by the forthcoming 300 Hz laptops and other premium mobile gaming PCs from ASUS, the company says that the flagship ROG Zephyrus S GX701 will come with NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2080 GPU clocked up to 1230 MHz at 100W in Turbo mode. Meanwhile, on display will be prototyes of the ROG Zephyrus S GX502 as well as the 15-inch and 17-inch flavors of the Strix Scar III with the 300 Hz display which will use NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2070 GPU with up to 1540 MHz GPU clock at 115W in Turbo mode. Given usage of NVIDIA's graphics processors, the laptops will also support G-Sync variable refresh rate. As these are just prototypes, it will be interesting to see if these make it to market.
    As for other specifications of the new ROG Zephyrus S-series laptops will pack up to Intel's six-core Core i7-9750H processor accompanied by up to 32 GB of DDR4-2666 as well as an NVMe solid-state storage subsystem. Other specifications will be disclosed at a later date, but it is safe to assume that top-of-the-range SKUs will use premium components. Prices will depend on exact configurations.
    The ASUS ROG Zephyrus S GX701, asthe industry's first laptop featuring a 300 Hz monitor, will be available this October, in time for holiday season. The manuacturer promises that similar 300 Hz panels will be available on other ROG machines in 2020.

    Anandtech: Samsung’s A-Series 5G Smartphone: Galaxy A90 5G

    With multiple makers of smartphones launching expensive high-end 5G smartphones this year, it was a matter of time before more reasonably priced 5G handsets emerge. Samsung is among the first companies to introduce a 5G-enabled smartphone that promises not to break the bank. In addition to faster networks support, the Samsung A90 offers a bunch of first-class features, including an advanced SoC as well as premium imaging capabilities.
    Equipped with a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display featuring a 2400×1080 resolution and a raindrop selfie camera module, the Galaxy A90 5G is based on Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 855 SoC accompanied by 6 or 8 GB of LPDDRX as well as 128 GB of NAND flash storage (expandable using a microSD card). Just like other Qualcomm-based 5G smartphones, the Galaxy A90 5G uses Qualcomm’s X50 modem. This is the same SoC and modem that power Samsung’s Galaxy S10 5G handset, so from performance and connectivity perspectives, the Galaxy A90 5G promises to behave just like the range-topping model.
    Imaging capabilities of the Galaxy A90 5G include a 48 MP main camera, an 8 MP ultrawide lens, and a 5 MP depth sensor. Meanwhile, a 32 MP module is used for selfies.
    One of the interesting selling points of the Galaxy A90 5G is support for Samsung’s DeX platform that enables desktop-like experience on Android-based devices (e.g., open up multiple windows, re-size windows, drag and drop content, etc.) when they connected to a PC display or a TV. Of course, proper DeX experience will require an external keyboard and mouse.
    Other notable features of Samsung’s Galaxy A90 5G are a 4,500 mAh battery, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, a USB 2.0 Type-C port for data and charging, stereo speakers, Dolby Atmos support for USB-C headsets, a fingerprint reader, and facial recognition.

    Anandtech: 8K Association Sets Minimal Specs for 8K Ultra-HD TVs

    The 8K Association, a group led by leading makers of TVs and display panels focused to facilitate growth of the 8K ecosystem, this week introduced a list of minimal technical specifications that should be met by a TV carrying an 8K logotype. If the initiative is embraced widely by the industry, it will ensure that next-generation 8K televisions and monitors will offer consistent performance levels and therefore experience.
    While resolution is a key characteristic of any display or TV, it clearly is not the only feature that defines quality and experience they provide. Nowadays, there are hundreds of mediocre 4K Ultra-HD 'HDR'-badged displays and TVs which use cheap panels and backlighting that lack proper bit depth, luminance, and color gamut that are essential for proper reproduction of 4K and HDR content. Such hardware ruins user experience and slowdowns adoption of new technologies by content creators.
    To avoid such a situation in the looming 8K era and develop strict guidelines for next-generation TVs, AU Optronics, Samsung Electronics, Panasonic, Hisense, and TCL formed the 8K Association in January, 2019. Since then, the 8KA was also joined by Astro Design, ATEME, Chili, Innolux, Intel, Louis Pictures, Novatek, Samsung Display, Tencent, V-Silicon, and Xperi.
    Recently, the 8K Association rolled out its first set of specifications covering 8K input parameters, display performance, interface, and media formats. In a nutshell, the 8KA wants an 8K TV or display to meet the following minimums:

    • Feature a resolution of 7680×4320 pixels
    • Support 24p, 30p, and 60p frames per second input framerate
    • Have a peak luminance of at least (a minimum of) 600 nits
    • Support HEVC codec
    • Use HDMI 2.1 interface

    The 8K specification by the 8KA also covers things like bit depth, frame rate, chroma sub-sampling, black level, color gamut, white point, HDR modes, and additional codecs.
    It remains to be seen whether 8KA’s initiative is embraced by other suppliers of televisions and SoCs, but the idea of making 8K Ultra-HD TVs and displays more appealing to the end user by guaranteeing certain experience certainly looks attractive.

    Anandtech: ASUS Unveils ASUSPRO B9 (B9450): A 14-Inch Ice Lake Laptop at 880 Grams

    ASUS announced its all-new ASUSPRO notebook aimed at business users who need rich functionality, advanced security, and ultimate portability. Taking advantage of Intel’s Project Athena as well as Intel’s latest Ice Lake platform, the ASUSPRO B9 (B9450) offers rather ultimate capabilities in a package that weighs starting from 880 grams.
    Traditionally for ASUS’ thin-and-light business-oriented machines, the ASUSPRO B9450-series laptops come in a 13-inch-class magnesium alloy chassis that is 14.9 mm thick and houses a 14-inch NanoEdge Full-HD display with anti-glare coating and ultra-thin bezels. Due to a reworked internal architecture (courtesy of Intel’s Ice Lake platform), the notebook weighs 880 grams when equipped with a 33 Wh battery or 990 grams when a 66 Wh battery is installed. Besides, the new ASUSPRO B9 can withstand MIL-STD 810G tests (probably ASUS refers primarily to drop tests), so it is pretty rugged too.
    Inside the ASUSPRO B9450-series machines is Intel’s 10th Generation Core processors codenamed Ice Lake with up to four cores and advanced Gen 11 graphics. The CPU is accompanied by LPDDR4X memory as well as up to two 1 TB PCIe 3.0 x4 SSDs operating in RAID 0 mode for superior performance or RAID 1 mode for added reliability.
    In line with Intel’s Project Athena recommendations, the ASUS PRO B9450 is equipped with Thunderbolt 3 as well as Wi-Fi 6 connectivity. Furthermore, it has a Windows Hello-capable webcam with IR sensors as well as a TPM 2.0 chip for ultimate security.
    ASUS plans to start sales of the ASUSPRO B9450-series notebooks in the near future. Exact configurations and prices will be disclosed when the laptops are available.

    Anandtech: ASUS ProArt PA32UCG: The Ultimate Mini LED 4K 120 Hz Monitor with HDR 1600

    Content creation is about to change drastically in the coming years as ultra-high-definition displays with wide color gamut, superior refresh rates, and great contrasts become widely available and demand for high-quality visuals increases. Being one of the leading makers of professional monitors, ASUS cannot ignore the ongoing trends and develops professional displays for next-gen content creation workloads. At IFA today, the company announced its ProArt PA32UCG LCD, one of the most advanced professional monitors introduced to date.
    To meet above mentioned requirements for next-generation displays, ASUS (and other makers of monitors) has to use either bright OLED panels with all their pros and cons, or advanced IPS LCD panels featuring full-area local area dimming (FALD) backlighting enhanced with quantum dots (or other methods) for more accurate colors. With its ‘portable’ ProArt PQ22UC, the company decided to go OLED, but with the new ProArt PA32UCG (and similarly-sized LCDs for color-critical workloads), the company prefers IPS panels featuring the said treatments.
    Aimed primarily at game developers, the ProArt PA32UCG features a 10-bit IPS panel of 3840×2160 resolution that offers a variable refresh rate (VRR) between 48 Hz and 120 Hz and is equipped with a Mini LED-based backlighting featuring 1,152 individual local dimming zones and quantum dots. That backlighting enables 1000 nits sustained brightness, up to 1600 nits peak brightness in HDR mode (officially, the LCD carries VESA’s DisplayHDR 1400 badge though), and a very high contrast ratio.
    The ASUS ProArt PA32UCG monitor can display 1.07 billion of colors and reproduce the sRGB, Adobe RGB, DCI-P3, and Rec. 2020 color spaces used for video post-production as well as graphics design nowadays, yet ASUS does not disclose anything about percentage of the coverage. Meanwhile, since the display will come factory calibrated with a Delta

    Anandtech: Intel to Launch Core i9-9900KS Next Month: 5 GHz on All Cores

    At its pre-IFA press event, Intel confirmed that its new enthusiast-class Core i9-9900KS processor will launch in October. The CPU will be very similar to the Core i9-9900K introduced last year, but will feature a higher all-core Turbo frequency when it has sufficient cooling.
    The Intel Core i9-9900KS will feature eight cores with Hyper-Threading running at 4.0 GHz base frequency and boosting all the way to 5.0 GHz on all cores, up 300 MHz from 4.7 GHz in case of the Core i9-9900K. Essentially, the new CPU is just an eight-core Coffee Lake Refresh silicon binned to hit higher clocks when cooling is good enough.

    Intel first teased the Core i9-9900KS ahead of Computex earlier this year, so the product launch is not a surprise. The important thing is that the CPU will finally hit the market this October.
    In a bid to maintain an intrigue, Intel did not disclose TDP of its new product. Besides, the company also did not disclose launch price of its Core i9-9900KS and we are curious to find out how much will the chipmaker want from its new range-topping enthusiast part.

    Anandtech: Intel’s Next-Generation ‘Cascade Lake-X’ HEDT CPUs Due in October

    Intel said Wednesday that its next-generation codenamed Cascade Lake-X processors for high-end desktops will be revealed next month. The company says that the new CPUs will provide a significant boost in performance per dollar when compared to its existing codenamed Skylake-X products, which gives some idea regarding improvements of the chips.
    Intel naturally does not disclose specifications of its processors that are at least a month away, so instead it demonstrated a slide showing relative performance per dollar in content creation applications. According to Intel’s internal testing, its Cascade-Lake-X processors will provide a 1.74x – 2.09x relative per-dollar performance improvement when compared to Skylake-X.
    Trying to figure out exact core count or price points of Cascade Lake-X CPUs from one performance diagram is certainly not a good business. Meanwhile, from Intel’s launch of its 2nd Generation Xeon Scalable products we know that the company offers either a higher frequency, or more cores at the same price when compared to the prior generation products. So, it is reasonable to expect Cascade Lake-X to provide similar advantages compared to Skylake-X. Also, Intel has launched the Xeon W-3200 series based on Cascade Lake, which will offer some similarity to these parts.
    Intel’s Cascade Lake-X processors will use LGA2066 socket and will be compatible with Intel X299-based motherboards with appropriate BIOS and features.
