No love for PCIe Gen5
A recent leak revealed possible specifications of the upcoming A620 chipset motherboards, suggesting a lack of PCI-Express Gen5.
The Snapdragon Wear 5100/5100+ is coming soon
Qualcomm took to Twitter to tease its next-gen Snapdragon Wear chipset, which is a great move since it has been over two years since the 12nm Snapdragon Wear 4100 and 4100+ were announced.
For a while now AMD users have been complaining that chipset software installation throws out an error where the window would say "AMD Chipset Software is not responding".
Dimensity 1200, Unisoc also made on the list
Netflix has a demanding rule for qualifying to play in HD, HDR, and supported chipsets. The chips from HiSilicon, MediaTek, Qualcomm, Samsung, and Unisoc made it on the list, but surprisingly, Netflix announced official support for Exynos 2200.
Lacks in GPU, 5G, imaging, features
MediaTek Dimensity 9000 got a lot of coverage, and the marketing machine is trying to promote this chipset as a premium. Guess what? Dimensity 9000 is not a premium chipset as it suffers from stitched stock Cortex IP, stock Mali GPU, lack of premium phone design wins, and, most importantly, too optimistic SoC clocks. The clocks, especially the mid-cluster, might get the company in trouble due to the high energy drain.
Running with Ryzen 7 5700G APU
It appears that AMD is preparing a refresh of its high-end X570 chipset as the X570S motherboard was spotted online running with the Ryzen 7 5700G APU.
14nm and USB 3.1
The new chipset that will accommodate the Intel 9th generation Core processors based on 14nm++ has brought two new features. Intel has introduced WiFi integration on the chipset level as well as USB 3.1 gen 2 support out of the box.
B350 with new features
Although AMD's new mid-range chipset has been rumored for quite some time, the latest leak provides more details.
Settlement wrapped in a paper
Last year Nvidia stopped getting so called licensing money from Intel. After five years the financial injection was delivered in total. This all came after the Intel and Nvidia conflict that started over chipsets, but essentially was a settlement that ended up being called licensing. It never was GPU licensing.
