10-second video clip sold for $ 6.6 million

Published

on

In October 2020, Miami-based art collector Pablo Rodriguez-Fraile spent nearly $ 67,000 on a 10-second piece of art that he could view for free online. He sold the video last week for $ 6.6 million.

The video by digital artist Beeple, whose real name is Mike Winkelmann (in the first photo), was authenticated using the blockchain, which serves as a digital signature to confirm who owns it and that it is the original work.

It is a new type of digital asset known as a non-fungible token (NFT). According to the source, the popularity of NFT has skyrocketed during the pandemic as investors are willing to spend huge amounts of money on items that only exist on the Internet.

Examples of NFTs range from digital artwork and sports cards to bits of land in virtual environments or the exclusive use of a cryptocurrency wallet name, akin to the battle for domain names in the early days of the Internet. Blockchain technology allows items to be publicly authenticated as one of a kind, unlike regular online objects that can be endlessly copied.

According to OpenSea, an NFT marketplace, sales reached $ 86.3 million in February. For comparison: in January it was equal to $ 8 million, and a year ago – $ 1.5 million. The dynamics are clearly shown in the diagram.

Investors are warned that the NFT market could represent a price bubble. As with many new niche investment areas, there is a risk of major losses if the hype dies down. In addition, the marketplace, where many participants operate under pseudonyms, provides an excellent environment for scammers.

However, Christie’s has just begun its first sale of a digital art object. This is a collage of 5,000 pictures, also created by Beeple. Its thumbnail is shown below. Collage exists exclusively as NFT. The rates have already reached $ 3 million. The auction should end on March 11th.

Unlimited by power limits, the Core i9-13900K shows incredible performance, but also consumes more than a HEDT-class CPU

Unlimited by power limits the Core i9 13900K shows incredible performance

The Core i9-13900K processor, in the absence of a power limit, can compete with the monstrous Ryzen Threadripper.

Unlimited by power limits, the Core i9-13900K shows incredible performance, but also consumes more than a HEDT-class CPU

Testing showed that in Cinebech R23 in multi-threaded mode, the upcoming Intel flagship in the regular version out of the box is gaining almost 35,700 points. And this result is already very good, since, for example, the Core i9-12900K scores 27,500 points, and the 32-core Threadripper 2990X scores 30,000 points.

But if you remove the power limit, then the Core i9-13900K is already gaining more than 40,600 points! And this already correlates with the capabilities of the modern 24-core Threadripper 5965WX, and the 32-core Threadripper 5975WX is not catastrophically faster.

The price to pay for this performance will be power consumption. The CPU consumes more than 250 W under load even without any modifications, and in the absence of restrictions, the figure soars up to 345 W! This is more than the same Threadripper 5000 requires.

Recall that the Core i9-13900K will still have only eight large cores, although there will already be 16 small ones.
