As you know, prices for video cards are gradually dropping, and some AMD adapters can already be bought at the recommended price or even a little cheaper. Against this background, the company decided to offer gifts to buyers of its adapters. I’m talking about games, of course.
The Raise The Game Bundle will be available to customers of any AMD Radeon RX 6000 graphics card. The condition is that you need to purchase the adapter between May 10 and August 13 inclusive.
But there is a curious detail in this story. The fact is that such sets of games from AMD and Nvidia do not always give away. Yes, once you could get more than a dozen game discs with a video card, but those days are gone. The current business model implies that manufacturers launch such campaigns with gifts either at the end of the life of a generation of video cards, or at times when sales for one reason or another can dwindle. But AMD only recently introduced the updated Radeon RX 6×50 XT cards, and then did not announce any games. The source suggests that AMD made the decision to launch the kit very quickly and spontaneously. So much so that, having announced its launch, it did not disclose the list of games included in it. And this is a first for the market.
The company only notes that it will give away games worth at least $60, including Saints Row 2022 and Sniper Elite 5. The first will be released only in August, and the second will be available on May 25th. True, AMD does not guarantee any of these games for all cards. That is, for example, she can give both of these games when buying an RX 6900 XT, only one when buying an RX 6600 XT, and neither of them if buying an RX 6400. But in any case, the buyer will receive games worth at least $60.
As the source says, AMD’s new set of games is without precedent. Neither AMD nor Nvidia have released game bundles before, without revealing in detail exactly which games come with which cards. Which, in turn, highlights how weird the current graphics card market is getting, and how quickly AMD has to act to prop up graphics card prices amid the rapid drop in cryptocurrency prices.
The GeForce RTX 3050 can now also be almost fully used for Ethereum mining. Nvidia LHR v3 security cracked 90%
A couple of weeks ago, the LHR protection in Nvidia graphics cards was cracked, which allowed everyone to use accelerators for Ethereum mining at full capacity again. But in fact, then the protection of LHR v2 was cracked, but not LHR v3.
The LHR v3 version is present in Nvidia’s latest releases: RTX 3050 and RTX 3080 12GB. And it is still not completely hacked, but now the NiceHash miner is able to use 90% of the performance of these cards when mining cryptocurrency. It’s not a complete hack yet, but it’s getting very close.
Fortunately, at the moment the cryptocurrency market is in a state of decline, so it hardly makes any sense to buy the same RTX 3050 for mining, which means that gamers need not worry for now.
By the way, a large article has been published on our website with an analysis of methods for cracking Nvidia protection.

AMD will show the world’s first dual-chip chipset in a few days. The company is preparing the announcement of X670E, X670 and B650 chipsets
As soon as we managed to touch on the topic of AMD’s announcement at Computex 2022 a few days later, data appeared on the Web that the company could show us.
Unfortunately, this data does not apply to processors or video cards. It’s about chipsets. Sources say AMD will unveil at least three next-generation chipsets for the AM5 platform during its event. These will be the X670E, X670 and B650 chipsets. Judging by the names, we should also expect the A620, but there is no data yet. It is likely that such a chipset will simply be released later.
Let’s start with the older solution. AMD X670E will be the top chipset, and the letter E in the name stands for Extreme. It won’t differ from the X670 in terms of features and capabilities, but motherboards based on this chipset should provide PCIe 5.0 connectivity to both the GPU and the M.2 slot, or possibly multiple slots, while motherboards X670-based ones may use PCIe 4.0 instead. Whether there will be any other differences remains to be seen.
But the source confirms early reports that the X670 (respectively, the X670E) will be a dual-chip chipset with two identical chipsets called Promontory 21. And the B650 chipset will be the same chip.
