A user of the American Reddit forum posted a photo of the melted GeForce RTX 4090. As you can see in the picture, the second (after VRM) part responsible for power supply, the 16-pin connector, was damaged.

As you can see in the photo, the connector placed on the board has almost cracked. The same applies to the cable-adapter from four 8-pin connectors to one 16-pin (it is included in the delivery package of the video card). The user says the cable caught fire and melted while he was playing Red Dead Redemption 2.

The victim believes that it is a malfunction of the cable for connecting power to the video card, although the exact cause of the ignition of the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 4090 Gaming OC has yet to be established.

After the start of sales of the GeForce RTX 4090, it turned out empirically that the branded adapter cable, which caught fire in this case, turned out to be quite cumbersome. In many cases, it rests against the side wall of the case, while its wires are bent at a large angle. As a result of this, local overheating of one or more cables may occur, and then what is shown in the photo may occur. However, so far this is just one of the versions of why the fire happened.

Will the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti stay for at least another year? Nvidia is ending production of almost all mid-range graphics cards.

Will the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti stay for at least

Nvidia has decided to completely stop the production of several models of video cards of past generations.

Will the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti stay for at least another year?  Nvidia is ending production of almost all mid-range graphics cards.

We are talking about the GeForce RTX 2060 Super, RTX 2060, GTX 1660 Super and GTX 1660 cards. The source does not have any details, but we already know that there is an RTX 3050 to replace the RTX 2060/2060 Super, but the GTX 1660 cards there are simply no replacements. The source doesn’t mention the GTX 1660 Ti, though, so it’s possible Nvidia is keeping this card alone to close the hole in the sub-$300 segment.

In particular, in Europe now for the GTX 1660/1660 Super/1660 Ti they are asking for about the same money: from about 230-240 euros. At the same time, the cheapest RTX 3050 now costs 300 euros. No more affordable cards will appear in the RTX 30 line, and it’s not worth waiting for cheap RTX 40 cards in the foreseeable future, because even the RTX 4060 is supposedly released only next summer.

For comparison, AMD has a modern Radeon RX 6600 in the sub-$300/Euro segment, which is much more powerful than any GTX 1660, and along with the RTX 3050.

Intel has not yet introduced most of the Raptor Lake family, including mobile CPUs. But today the Core i7-1370P lit up on the Web.

Geekbench indicates that this is a 14-core processor with support for 20 threads, that is, we are talking about six large cores and eight small ones. It is worth noting here that this is a configuration identical to the Core i7-1280P, but the Core i7-1270P has 14 cores. That is, the new Intel CPU will be better than its predecessor, including in terms of the number of cores.

In addition, the frequencies will become higher. The maximum frequency will reach 5 GHz versus 4.8 GHz for the models of the Alder Lake line mentioned above. But the base frequency relative to the Core i7-1280P will increase by 100 MHz, up to 1.9 GHz, but relative to the Core i7-1270P it will decrease by 300 MHz.
