Asus, MSI and Gigabyte have raised the cost of their graphics cards

The rise in the value of Bitcoin in August led to an increase in the activity of miners and, accordingly, the demand for video cards. This, in turn, boosted the financials of the three largest 3D card makers, with Asus and MSI up 30% in August, and Gigabyte up more than 25% on a monthly basis. However, this did not save in any way from the increase in prices for their products.

According to the source, in China in September, video cards of these three manufacturers have risen in price by 3-7%, and on average – by 5%. We are talking about the models of the Ampere line, GeForce GTX 10 and AMD Radeon RX 6000. Interestingly, the GeForce RTX 3090, apparently, did not rise in price, as it is said about the increase in the cost of models “GeForce RTX 3080 and below.” On the one hand, the rise in price is not critical – some 5%, moreover, before that, in July, prices were falling much more significantly. But on the other hand, 5% is only a manufacturer’s margin. But there are also distributors, small wholesalers, retail. If at each stage of the chain the price rises by the same 5%, then at the output for the consumer it will already be 20%. In general, everything goes to the fact that video cards will continue to follow the course of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, that is (for now) will continue to rise in price.

GeForce RTX 4080 showed that it can operate at a frequency of 3 GHz, consume 333 watts and not get very hot

The GeForce RTX 4080 16GB video card has already shown what it is capable of in 3DMark, but now we can evaluate other features of the adapter.

It turns out that in the same benchmark, the GPU of this video card worked at a frequency of 3 GHz! The card at the same time consumed 333 watts, but surprisingly, the core temperature was only 61 degrees.

True, we do not have exact data on whether the native cooling system was used or, for example, liquid. There is also no data on whether GPU overclocking took place, although the memory frequency corresponds to the reference value. This fact may indirectly speak in favor of the lack of overclocking, but this is not at all necessary.

In any case, what matters to us is that the GPUs on the RTX 4080 and RTX 4090 can run at 3GHz without extreme overclocking.

It’s no secret that Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4090 graphics cards need powerful power supplies, but official recommendations from Nvidia partners vary.

Some manufacturers follow Nvidia’s recommendations for a standard 850W PSU, but many manufacturers list 1000W PSUs as recommended, some even insist on a 1200W PSU.

Asus recommends a 1000W PSU for its ROG Strix graphics card. Asus suggests this because the company assumes that users will be overclocking both the CPU and the GPU. The Gigabyte Aorus Master and Zotac AMP Extreme/Trinity RTX 4090 graphics cards have the same power supply recommendation of 1000W.

For the GeForce RTX 4090, a power supply with a capacity of up to 1200 W is recommended

MSI, PNY, Galax, and Inno3D recommend an 850W PSU. However, Palit recommends using up to 1200W power supply for its RTX 4090 GameRock graphics card, which is the most stringent requirement among graphics card manufacturers today.

Today we already wrote that the GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card can consume more than 600 watts without any extreme overclocking. And when using the most powerful processors and overclocking, the power of the entire system will be much higher.

The first example that the GeForce RTX 4090 can consume over 600 watts. Card tested at Furmark

The first example that the GeForce RTX 4090 can consume

The GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card can indeed draw over 600W without any extreme overclocking.

The first example that the GeForce RTX 4090 can consume over 600 watts.  Card tested at Furmark

The results of testing new items in Furmark have already appeared on the Web. In the msi-01 base test, the GPU frequency reached 3 GHz, and the power consumption was 426 W, but in the notorious Donut test, the frequency, although significantly lower (2.64 GHz), consumed the card almost 616 W! This test loads 3D cards much more heavily, which, as we can see, has a noticeable effect on power consumption.

In this case, the tests were carried out with a liquid cooler and, judging by the core frequency, in overclocking. Of course, without overclocking and in games, the consumption of the RTX 4090 will never reach what we see in the Donut test, but at the same time, such results mean that this is far from the limit for the adapter, and consumption during extreme overclocking can only be imagined .
