An affordable GeForce RTX 3060 Ti-level card with 16 GB of memory is no longer so affordable. In the US, the Intel Arc A770 is being resold for $750 – more than twice the official price.

The retail release of the Intel Arc A750 and A770 video cards could be rejoiced at: even if they are not very powerful, and have problems with drivers and performance in certain games, they are inexpensive. Casual users and gamers unencumbered with funds have more choices – and that’s always a good thing. But, as it turned out, these models have become scarce.

An affordable GeForce RTX 3060 Ti-level card with 16 GB of memory is no longer so affordable.  In the US, the Intel Arc A770 is being resold for $750 - more than twice the official price.

This is evidenced by the site eBay. Dealers have already become active on it, offering to buy brand new Arc A750 and A770 – of course, more expensive than the official cost. Moreover, in the case of the older model, the markup is shocking: it is offered for 760-780 dollars! With an official price of $350.

Arc A750 are sold for 415-710 dollars, but on average for about 430. Here the mark-up is not so impressive: at the official price of 290 dollars, the difference does not reach two times. But still, of course, there is nothing good in this situation.

The most interesting thing is that in the US, prices for video cards have dropped so much that for the same $ 750 you can buy a completely new and much more powerful GeForce RTX 3080. Or Radeon RX 6900 XT.

666 W and two potentially dangerous 12VHPWR connectors at once. Galax GeForce RTX 4090 HOF unveiled

666 W and two potentially dangerous 12VHPWR connectors at once

Galax has fully introduced the GeForce RTX 4090 HOF graphics cards.

There are two models: OC Lab and OC Lab Plus. But in any case, we are talking about the most powerful RTX 4090 on the market and, as a result, the most productive graphics card in general. True, with a caveat.

The fact is that the novelty has two modes of operation. The standard GPU frequency is 2520 MHz for both versions. In Performance mode, the core frequency of OC Lab rises to 2595 MHz, while for OC Lab Plus it already reaches 2625 MHz. And that’s lower than the Asus ROG Strix OC or MSI Suprim Liquid at 2640 MHz. But here the power limit in this mode rises to a symbolic 666 watts. At what frequencies the GPU will work in this mode in real conditions, it is not clear, so we need to wait for the tests. But from the point of view of the power limit, there is no equal to the novelty. By the way, 666 W is more than the allowable 600 W for the new 12VHPWR connector. But everything is explained simply: the new Galax products have two such connectors. True, this means that the risk of incorrectly connecting the power is doubled.

As for the rest, we can note the complete display and a length of 344 mm.

Even the $900 RX 7900 XT is enough to compete with the $1200 GeForce RTX 4080. There are tests in 3DMark

Even the 900 RX 7900 XT is enough to compete

As we learned today, reviews of the Radeon RX 7900 video cards will be published on December 12th. But the first tests in normal benchmarks appeared today.

Even the $900 RX 7900 XT is enough to compete with the $1200 GeForce RTX 4080.  There are tests in 3DMark

Both of AMD’s new products lit up in 3DMark. Unfortunately, in the Fire Strike and Time Spy tests, which are quite old, it is still much better than the results in Geekbench.

True, the results of AMD’s new products themselves look debatable. In Time Spy at 4K, there is almost no difference between the RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT, and both cards perform roughly on par with the GeForce RTX 4080.

In Fire Strike, the younger RX 7900 XT is already successfully fighting the RTX 4080, and the older RX 7900 XTX is about 10% faster. Relative to the RX 6950 XT, AMD’s new flagship provides a gain of 25-30%, which is rather modest. And this can be written down as a minus for AMD’s new products, especially against the background of the catastrophically more powerful RTX 4090.

However, keep in mind the prices. The RX 7900 XT, which in both tests is quite suitable for a direct competitor to the RTX 4080 in terms of performance, is cheaper than the Nvidia card by $300 or 25%! And against this background, the lag behind the RTX 4090 is completely irrelevant. And if you calculate the ratio of performance and price, AMD’s new products look much better than the same RTX 4090, not to mention the RTX 4080.

Of course, in games the situation may be somewhat different, especially since these 3DMark tests are very old. But here it is worth noting that, if you look at the comparison of the RTX 30 and RX 6000 cards, the balance of power roughly corresponds to what the cards show in games.

Radeon RX 7900 Video Card Reviews To Be Published Earlier

The Radeon RX 7900 graphics cards will go on sale on December 13th. Previously, it was believed that the reviews would be published on the same day, but now it turned out that they were not.

Reviews will appear on December 12, that is, the day before the launch. This will allow everyone to get acquainted with the new products and decide on the purchase before the start of sales. On December 12, reviews of both new AMD video cards will be published at once.

Recall that the Radeon RX 7900 XT and RX 7900 XTX are priced at $900 and $1,000 respectively. This is in the US and excluding taxes. At the moment, Nvidia has no direct competitors for these new products. The RTX 4070 Ti, with an expected price of $900, won’t be released until January, while the RTX 4080 is priced at $1,200. True, there are rumors that Nvidia will lower the price a little, and even without this the adapter is already available in some places at a price below the recommended one, but it is unlikely that the RTX 4080 will cost $1000 to directly compete with the new AMD flagship.
