The GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card is currently the most powerful solution in the world, but in some cases it may not be the best option.

As it turned out, using this adapter as an external video card can lead to a significant drop in performance.

Buy a GeForce RTX 4090 and use only 20-50% of its power.  Tests have shown that it is better not to use the novelty to create an external video card.

The author of the JarrodsTech channel decided to try out the new Nvidia flagship in place with two laptops. The former was equipped with a Core i7-1260P CPU, while the latter relied on the much more powerful Core i9-12900HX. A desktop PC with a Ryzen 9 7950X was used as a reference.

Testing has shown that most games experience a huge drop in RTX 4090 performance when used as an external card. The best result was in God of War, where the decrease was 35%. In other games, the figure was about 50%, and in the worst case, performance dropped by 82%!

Even more interesting was the result when comparing two laptops. For example, in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, a Core i9-12900HX PC turned out to be twice as bad as a Core i7-1260P laptop, although the first CPU itself is much more productive. The author has a version that the Resizable BAR implementation is to blame, but this has not yet been verified.

It is worth noting that a Thunderbolt 3 docking station was used for the tests, but it is not known which one. Considering that Thunderbolt 4 is no faster than the third version in terms of data transfer speed, you can expect the same results with more modern docking stations.

Recall that today we also learned why the RTX 4090 power connectors melt.

The first laptop with GeForce RTX 40 Asus ROG Zephyrus

The first laptop based on the GeForce RTX 40 line of graphics cards has appeared on the Web. The model is called the Asus ROG Zephyrus M16.

Judging by the photo, the new M16 looks little different from its predecessor. In particular, the same thin frames have been preserved, which not every gaming laptop can boast of. For the current model, Asus is talking about 94% display space.

The current ROG Zephyrus M16 is equipped with a Core i9-12900H CPU and offers graphics cards from RTX 3050 Ti to RTX 3080 Ti. We can expect that the new model will have approximately the same configuration, but with new CPU and GPU.

Recall that the announcement of the mobile GeForce RTX 40, as well as the Raptor Lake mobile processors, is expected at CES 2023. A laptop will probably also be presented there.

Will the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti stay for at least another year? Nvidia is ending production of almost all mid-range graphics cards.

Will the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti stay for at least

Nvidia has decided to completely stop the production of several models of video cards of past generations.

Will the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti stay for at least another year?  Nvidia is ending production of almost all mid-range graphics cards.

We are talking about the GeForce RTX 2060 Super, RTX 2060, GTX 1660 Super and GTX 1660 cards. The source does not have any details, but we already know that there is an RTX 3050 to replace the RTX 2060/2060 Super, but the GTX 1660 cards there are simply no replacements. The source doesn’t mention the GTX 1660 Ti, though, so it’s possible Nvidia is keeping this card alone to close the hole in the sub-$300 segment.

In particular, in Europe now for the GTX 1660/1660 Super/1660 Ti they are asking for about the same money: from about 230-240 euros. At the same time, the cheapest RTX 3050 now costs 300 euros. No more affordable cards will appear in the RTX 30 line, and it’s not worth waiting for cheap RTX 40 cards in the foreseeable future, because even the RTX 4060 is supposedly released only next summer.

For comparison, AMD has a modern Radeon RX 6600 in the sub-$300/Euro segment, which is much more powerful than any GTX 1660, and along with the RTX 3050.

Intel has not yet introduced most of the Raptor Lake family, including mobile CPUs. But today the Core i7-1370P lit up on the Web.

When the new Intel processor is really better than its predecessor.  Core i7-1370P parameters appeared

Geekbench indicates that this is a 14-core processor with support for 20 threads, that is, we are talking about six large cores and eight small ones. It is worth noting here that this is a configuration identical to the Core i7-1280P, but the Core i7-1270P has 14 cores. That is, the new Intel CPU will be better than its predecessor, including in terms of the number of cores.

In addition, the frequencies will become higher. The maximum frequency will reach 5 GHz versus 4.8 GHz for the models of the Alder Lake line mentioned above. But the base frequency relative to the Core i7-1280P will increase by 100 MHz, up to 1.9 GHz, but relative to the Core i7-1270P it will decrease by 300 MHz.
