AMD video cards are still often more profitable, but GeForces are also getting cheaper. Adapters in Europe continue to fall in price

Published

The video card market is gradually starting to switch to new generation video cards, but the process has just begun and only in the upper price segment. At the same time, the process of reducing prices for adapters of the past generation is partially continuing. In Europe, some AMD and Nvidia graphics cards have fallen significantly in price over the past two months, although some have even risen in price.

AMD video cards are still often more profitable, but GeForces are also getting cheaper.  Adapters in Europe continue to fall in price

As you can see, in most cases, prices have decreased, and somewhere quite noticeably. AMD cards, judging by numerous benchmarks, including our own, and current prices, are still a lot better on average than Nvidia cards. For example, the RX 6600 is much faster than the RTX 3050 and is also cheaper. The same situation in pairs of RX 6650 and RTX 3060, RX 6900 XT and RTX 3080 and many others.

It can also be noted that at current prices, some top-end older generation graphics cards already look pointless, as there are new ones. For example, the RTX 4080 costs the same as the RTX 3090 Ti, but the new one is faster. But in the case of a pair of RX 6950 XT and RX 7900 XT, on the contrary, the first one is much cheaper, and often loses slightly in terms of performance.

Separately, we can note the very much cheaper Radeon RX 6400, which is not even close to equal at such a low price, as well as the RTX 3050, which for its entire existence on the market still cannot noticeably cheaper.

Are Intel Arc graphics cards going to be the best value for money now? The company claims to have increased productivity by up to 87%

Are Intel Arc graphics cards going to be the best

Intel has released a fresh graphics driver for Arc video cards, which, as the company itself promises, will increase performance by some incredible values.

Of course, not everywhere, but Intel says that in Full HD performance will increase by up to 77%, in 1440p by 87%, and the average increase for older games with DirectX 9, which Arc cards initially had problems with, should increase by 43%. All these figures are valid for the Arc A750, which Intel has just reduced the price to $250.

The growth that Intel promises is really impressive. Under these conditions, the $250 Arc A750 should be the best-value graphics card in the class, as it competes on price with the GeForce RTX 3050 and Radeon RX 6600, which it could previously beat. However, it is better to wait for various tests and evaluate whether such an impressive performance increase really takes place.

How gigantic will these Intel processors be A comparative photo

We have already seen photos of the LGA7529 socket for the new Intel Xeon server processors, and now it’s time to understand how huge the CPUs themselves will be.

In the comparison photo, you can see the LGA4677 socket for the recently released Sapphire Rapids processors and the much larger LGA7529 for the upcoming Granite Rapids and Sierra Forest CPUs.

According to preliminary calculations, the dimensions of the new CPUs will be about 105 x 70.5 mm, that is, they will be about 70% larger than the current generation, which is rather big in itself. For comparison, the dimensions of the monstrous Epyc Genoa are approximately 72 x 75.4 mm. It is quite possible that the new Intel processors will be the largest on the market at the time of release.

The LGA7529 (Birch Stream-AP) platform is expected next year. As part of the platform, Intel is going to release two lines of completely different processors. The first will be Granite Rapids, which will reportedly contain up to 128 large Redwood Cove + cores, and the second will be Sierra Forest, which will have all small cores, but there will be either 344 or even 528 of them.
