At the time of the announcement of the Radeon RX 6900 XT LC video card, AMD representatives said that this model will be produced in limited quantities and will be supplied only to system integrators and large PC builders. True, a few days later, the Radeon RX 6900 XT LC could already be bought in India, but the regions of Asia are known for their peculiar attitude towards official sales bans, and manufacturers, in turn, cannot do anything about such a feature of the eastern mentality. But now the Radeon RX 6900 XT LC has gone on sale in Europe, which already suggests that AMD has officially given the green light to retail sales of its most powerful graphics card.

The Radeon RX 6900 XT Liquid Cooled Edition by PowerColor (in fact, it is a clone of the reference) is presented in the largest German store Mindfactory. They ask for 1750 euros for it. Also, the video card was listed in the local price aggregator Geizahls for 1680 euros. And, it should be noted, this is not very expensive: some variants of the Radeon RX 6900 XT with standard air cooling are more expensive.

Recall that the Radeon RX 6900 XT LC is built on an overclocked version of the Navi 21 XTX GPU – Navi 21 XTXH. The difference is in higher frequencies: 2250-2435 versus 2015-2250 in the usual Radeon RX 6900 XT. Also, the Radeon RX 6900 XT LC received 18 GHz memory versus 16 GHz for the standard version. Finally, the TDP is increased by 30W to 330W.

Computer in “credit card” format. Qualcomm develops Qompute Card concept despite Intel’s failure

Published

on

Qualcomm is reportedly developing a concept called the Qompute Card.

It involves placing all the basic elements of a PC on one small board. This will allow you to easily and quickly update the configuration of such a PC or use such cards by one user in different places on different PCs. Also, a similar solution can find application in household appliances.

The concept is not new at all. Back in 2017, a similar idea for the Intel Compute Card was presented, but the company abandoned it two years later, since it did not receive any distribution in the market.

Qualcomm as a whole makes a very similar decision, except that the heart of such cards will be SoCs based on the Arm architecture. The Qompute Card will also contain the motherboard, RAM and flash memory. That is, all the main elements of the finished device. At the same time, Qualcomm cards may well be significantly smaller than Intel Compute Card, if only because of the different power consumption of SoC Snapdragon and conventional Intel CPUs.

Qompute Card are aimed specifically at computers and laptops. At least the SoC Snapdragon 7c + Gen 3 presented the other day will also be offered as part of the cards. The source adds that Qualcomm is testing configurations for both Windows Arm and Chrome OS. How successful this version will turn out to be, time will tell. So far, all such modularity initiatives have not met with success.

No, GeForce RTX 2060 12GB Founders Edition will not be available at MSRP. The company will not release a reference version of the novelty

The 12GB GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card that Nvidia unveiled the other day will not be available in the Founders Edition.

Initially, the company indicated such a version on its website, but removed it from the description and confirmed to sources that the new product would not be released in such a version.

Thus, the updated RTX 2060 will be available exclusively in non-reference variants. In the current situation, this is a disadvantage, since Founders Edition cards can at least occasionally be bought at the recommended price directly on the Nvidia website or from its partners. Now it turns out that all RTX 2060s in retail will come with huge markups. By the way, we still don’t know the official price for the updated map.

But they are made not only for the sake of a spectacular appearance. They are said to improve cooling. In addition, the case protects the drive from damage. The description says that the drive can withstand drops from a height of up to 2 m.
