New Technologies That The PC World Embraced In 2019
We have seen major milestones in the year 2019, especially in the PC world. We now have faster PCs that look cool and go easy on the buyer's pocket. Some of these new technologies were meant to improve the overall performance of computers.
More Efficient CPUs And GPUs
AMD made into headlines a lot of times in 2019 with its new CPUs and GPUs. Currently, the company is using a 7nm fabrication to manufacture some of its processors. And this makes AMD components more efficient compared to their Intel and Nvidia counterparts.
A CPU or GPU manufactured using the 7nm fabrication will consume less power and will be less compact compared to a CPU or a GPU built using 10mn or even 14nm fabrication. Besides, these parts will be able to offer higher performance per watt.
Though making a custom PC is already a thing of past, this year it got a lot better. We now have RAM and SSDs with RGB lighting support. Besides, some motherboards offer RGB lighting. Some of these components are now more affordable than ever, and building a colorful PC is no more an expensive thing.
More DDR6 GPUs
DDR6 is the latest standard in the VRAM territory. Compared to a DDR5, a DDR6 memory offers higher bandwidth and is also snappier. Plus, the DDR6 memory is also efficient and consumes less power compared to a DDR5 memory used on graphics cards.
Having a DDR6 memory standard helps manufacturers design GPUs that are more powerful, without increasing the overall form factor compared to previous-generation models. However, as this is the latest technology, a GPU based on DDR6 V-RAM might cost a bit more than a GPU based on DDR5 technology.
SSDs are finally affordable and one should definitely pick an SSD over an HDD as their boot drive. An SSD will offer significantly faster read and write speeds. Plus, one need not worry about mechanical failures. We now have SSDs with their own cooling solution to get sustained memory performance.
CPUs With 5.0GHz Clock Speed
Intel's i9-9900 is one of the first CPUs to run at 5.0GHz clock speed and maintain the clock speed for a long haul. Some of the games and apps still depend on single-core performance, and CPUs like the Intel Core i9-9900 is a great pick for building a gaming PC.
128 Thread Processor
We now have mainstream CPUs with 64 physical CPU cores and 128 hyper threads. These CPUs have great potential especially on a machine that is used to render videos that use multi-CPU core technology.
APU -- a dim that houses both CPU and GPU (a powerful one) is now a reality. These APUs have been extensively used on low TDP laptops to get the best of both worlds. With an efficient APU, a laptop can have a single cooling solution without increasing the overall form factor of the machine as a dedicated GPU is known to take the extra real estate, making laptops bulky.
Trend Of Streaming
Services like Google Stadia were launched in 2019, which enables cloud gaming even on a low-end PC that has a high-speed internet connection. This also means one can game from anywhere anytime they wish.
Besides Stadia, Sony and Microsoft have also launched their cloud gaming service that lets users make their consoles as service to the game from their smartphones.
