Are the recommended prices for modern video cards too high? Calculated how adapters are priced based on performance

Published

Current generation video cards have been heavily overpriced almost all the time due to scarcity and demand from miners. Now the prices are getting back to normal, but how normal are the prices that are recommended? The source decided to evaluate how fair these prices are in terms of performance.

The source took the GeForce RTX 3070 as a conditional standard, which, according to our colleagues, is fairly priced if we take 4K resolution.

As you can see, there is an even more profitable graphics card – GeForce RTX 3060 Ti. That is, it offers more than its price of $400. As for the rest of Nvidia’s cards, most of them have not gone far from the standard, offering 90-94% price match. But all high cards are heavily overvalued. The same GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, according to such calculations, should cost only $ 814, and not $ 2,000 at all.

As far as AMD cards are concerned, only the Radeon RX 6800 and 6800 XT can be distinguished here, which are very close to 100%. Also, the Radeon RX 6700 XT has a rate of 92%. The rest of the cards are significantly more overpriced, although no model falls short of the RTX 3090 Ti in this indicator, simply because even the RX 6950 XT is almost half the price.

It is worth mentioning separately that the source only evaluated performance in games, so all calculations are rather arbitrary. They do not take into account the non-gaming capabilities of video cards, the same huge amount of memory in top GeForces, the complexity of GPU and PCB production, and so on.

Samsung is preparing an ultimate SSD The company teases with

Samsung has started teasing Twitter users with an advertisement for a new SSD. The company does not specify the details, calling the new Ultimate SSD.

Samsung is preparing an

Third-party sources expect this to be a new SSD (or a whole series) with a PCIe 5.0 interface. These may well be models of the Samsung 990 SSD line, which were previously lit up in the databases of regulators.

Samsung previously released the PM1743 PCIe 5.0 SSD for the data center, and it offers data transfer speeds of up to 14GB/s, so you can expect similar numbers from the 990 Pro.

Some motherboards will turn the Core i9-13900K into a power consumption monster. The power limit will increase to 350W

Intel can make the Core i9-13900K even more attractive with a new auto-overclocking mode.

Some motherboards will turn the Core i9-13900K into a power consumption monster.  The power limit will increase to 350W

The source reports that some motherboards based on 700-series chipsets will allow you to activate an increased power limit. In this case, we are talking about a value of 350 watts. For comparison, Alder Lake has a maximum of 241 watts.

The values ​​of PL1 and PL2 for the new CPUs will hardly change and will amount to 125 and 253 W, respectively. But there will also be an opportunity to remove the limit, thanks to which the Core i9-13900K will be able to consume up to 350 watts. In this case, of course, the motherboard will need a powerful power supply subsystem, and the processor will need a productive CO.

CPU performance in this mode can increase by 15%, although this will depend on the tasks. Whether the Core i9-13900KS, which was previously assigned a frequency of up to 6 GHz, will be released under such conditions is now unclear.

Apparently, the picture shows a pre-sale version. Perhaps this is one of the copies for media reviews.

The Ryzen 7 7700X is an octa-core SMT capable CPU up to 5.4GHz with a TDP of 105W. According to leaks, such a processor will cost about $ 300, that is, it will not rise in price relative to its predecessor at the start of sales.

Recall, in addition to this model, a 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X, a 12-core Ryzen 9 7900X and a six-core Ryzen 5 7600X are also expected. Later the line may well expand.
