A Reddit user bought Nvidia’s most powerful graphics card of 2015 – the GTX TITAN X – and found something unexpected

For its time, the Nvidia GeForce TITAN 3D card was like the RTX 4090 is now – the most powerful, expensive and uncompromising. Unless they burned and the connectors in them did not melt. Now they are far from being as powerful as they were at the time of release, but they are still usable. So, a user of a large American Reddit forum with the nickname “puzzlew” decided to purchase a GTX TITAN X from 2015 for his needs – and he did it. And after the purchase, I discovered an unexpected thing.

It turned out that instead of four video outputs, the video card has only two: one each for HDMI and DisplayPort. How could this happen, given that the PCB number is exactly the same as the official one.

The Nvidia manager assigned to the forum confirmed that the product is quite official, but not serial. It turned out that Nvidia had such an engineering sample of the GTX TITAN X and it even had its own product code 699-1G600-0000-501C instead of the standard 699-1G600-0000-500E. The company has a practice of sending engineering samples of promising 3D maps to its partners for review, and one of these partners apparently sold a sample.

AMD Ryzen 7000 processors have fallen in price in the

AMD Ryzen 7000 processors continue to get cheaper in the US, and from different retailers, and not somewhere in one place. So, prices have decreased on Amazon, and at Microcenter, and on the Newegg site.

AMD Ryzen 7000 processors have fallen in price in the US.  8-core Ryzen 7700X drops $104, top-end 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X drops $210

The best deal on the Ryzen 7 7700X is $345. The processor dropped 104 dollars from the official price. For comparison, for its rival in the face of the Core i7-13700K in the US they ask for $418.

The 12-core Ryzen 9 7900X has fallen in price more – by $ 132: the cost has decreased from the official $ 550 to $ 418. That is, there is just price parity with the Core i7-13700K.

The top 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X dropped $211 from $800 to $589. For the Core i9-13900K in the US, they ask for only a little more – $ 598.

These are prices on the Amazon site, but Microcenter has about the same discounts. At the same time, the Newegg and Microcenter sites have already fallen in price and the latest 65-watt Ryzen 7700 – by $ 10, but nonetheless. Recall that the Ryzen 7000 (without the X index) was presented only in early January.

But the maximum data transfer rates for sequential reading and writing are known – 10 and 9.5 GB / s, respectively. In the picture below, Corsair even compared its current top-end MP600 Pro XT SSD to the MP700. The difference is noticeable.

However, the MP700 will be able to fully realize its high-speed potential only on the latest platforms from AMD (with processor socket AM5) and Intel (based on 600 and 700 series chipsets). The creators talk about the use of 3D TLC NAND memory chips in the SSD and support for NVMe 2.0 M.2.

AMD promised SSDs with PCIe 5.0 support back in November last year, but in fact there are only a few such models on sale.

Obviously, due to its compact size, the cooler’s ability to dissipate heat is seriously limited – it is suitable for cooling Ryzen 7000 processors with a TDP of 65W. The design is a low radiator with two heat pipes and a fan with a diameter of 92 mm. The regular version of the NH-L9a is priced at $45, while the all-black version costs $10 more.
