You would expect processors that come with disabled features to cost less than more-capable models, but according to Intel's latest price list, that standard reasoning doesn't apply to its new iGPU-disabled F-series processors.Intel, despite its continued struggles transitioning to the 10nm node, wowed the CES crowd with some of its new forthcoming tech in areas like notebooks and servers, but the company's announcements were muted in terms of new actual shipping silicon, especially for desktop PCs. The company announced that it would have new 9th-generation processors for the desktop but didn't list the new models or specs.We learned that, aside from the Core i5-9400 that is just a re-packaging of the Coffee Lake processors into a 65W part, Intel's only other new shipping products come in the form of de-featured processors: The new F-series processors lack the integrated Intel UHD Graphics 630 iGPU, as denoted by an "F" suffix on the product name. These chips come packing the same 14nm process and Coffee Lake microarchitecture as their other 9th-Generation counterparts. They also feature the same core counts, TDPs, and frequencies.We previously weren't aware of the pricing on these new models, but Intel's new official price list reveals that the company has set their RCP (Recommended Customer Pricing) the same as their iGPU-equipped counterparts.
Intel released the new processors as a relief valve during the ongoing shortage of its 14nm processors. The incredibly complex chip manufacturing process isn't perfect, so many processors come off the production line with defects. Intel can simply disable cores on a chip, instead selling it as a lower-end model, if a defect lands in a core. It stands to reason, then, that selling chips with disabled integrated graphics would allow Intel to sell chips with defects in the graphics units
We've confirmed that Intel's new processors have the same die as the "normal" versions, so the disabled graphics units are still physically present. We also learned the disabled graphics unit doesn't impart any performance advantages, such as longer boost duration or higher overclocking capability. Simply put, you can expect the same amount of compute performance from these chips as their normal iGPU-equipped equivalents, meaning the only advantage would be that you might actually be able to buy the processors if the normal chips are out of stock.
Vl thật :-s
kylanbac91:Cắt bỏ iGPU xong bán giá tương đương bản không cắt Bọn intel đang sỉ nhục trí thông minh người tiêu dùng à
Kurisu Makise:Bọn nó sẽ tăng giá chip có IGP trong thời gian tới bạn ạ
DOMINATER:giá sản xuất chỉ giảm dc vài $ ko đáng kể, chủ yếu là chi phí đóng gói, kho bãi, vận chuyển, chiết khấu đại lí. Bù lại nó sẽ ổn định và ít tỏa nhiệt hơn. người tiêu dùng có quyền mua bản có iGPU mà
cao9duoi_05:đâu có giảm, chỉ là những con trước lỗi igpu phải vứt đi giờ đóng gói lại bán đường hoàng thôi mà, ez money
fly07:Tăng thêm chi phí vì phải tốn công dis igpu đi. Mà bán giá ngang với mấy con có igpu là làm từ thiện rồi đấy
Intel_Pentium:sao giá không igpu với có igpu lại như nhau là sao nhỉ ? ai giải thích hộ
