Elon Musk wrong? Gasoline Volkswagen Golf has risen in price in Europe by half in recent years

Published

The German source ADAC conducted a market study and found out that new cars are becoming more expensive than buyers expect.

If in 2017 the base Volkswagen Golf could be bought for 20,700 euros, now the dealer will ask for at least 29,569 euros for the simplest version of the hatchback. On average, over the past five years, the price of compact cars in Europe has increased by 44.3%.

This happened for a number of reasons, in particular, due to the fact that manufacturers are reducing the production of budget models in an effort to achieve maximum margins. In addition, they are trying to saturate the equipment with advanced multimedia systems and electronic assistants. In addition, for the same Volkswagen Golf, a 130-horsepower engine is now used, although a 90-horsepower engine was previously available.

The automotive industry has been suffering from a severe shortage of microchips over the past couple of years, and now the main problem has become a sharp rise in the cost of energy resources. Some companies are forced to stop production.

In 2017, the average cost of a new car in Germany was 44,908 euros, and now it has skyrocketed to 53,525 euros (about 19%). According to ADAC, prices will continue to rise.

Earlier, the founder of Tesla and SpaceX, the richest man on the planet, Elon Musk, made another prediction regarding cars with traditional internal combustion engines. He stated: “Soon we will treat gasoline cars the way we treat steam engines today. The residual value of gasoline cars bought today will be much lower than you think.”

Intel unintentionally showed 34 core processors where all the cores are

Intel introduced the Raptor Lake processors, where the flagship is the Core i9-13900K with 8 large and 16 small cores, that is, it has a total of 24 cores. But perhaps Intel has something even more impressive?

Intel unintentionally showed 34-core processors, where all the cores are large

At the Intel Innovation 2022 event, the company demonstrated a wafer with Raptor Lake crystals. Not only are the crystals themselves clearly not the same as those of the new Core desktop products, the label also directly indicates that these are 34-core processors.

The study of the crystals showed that probably all 34 nuclei are large. Interestingly, the Intel booth staff had no idea what kind of CPU it was.

Presumably, these may be processors of the Sapphire Rapids family, which are expected next year. They should come out both in the server segment and in the segment of solutions for workstations. Perhaps the latter will be promoted as part of the Raptor Lake line, although the labeling may simply be a mistake.

The monstrous Core i9 13900KS lit up on the Web and

That same mysterious Intel processor with a frequency of 6 GHz out of the box has already lit up on the Web. And it’s actually called the Core i9-13900KS, as we expected.

Moreover, it immediately lit up in the CPU-Z benchmark, scoring 982 and 18,453 points there in single-threaded and multi-threaded modes, respectively.

In comparison, the Core i9-13900K scores 810 and 14,900 points out of the box, and 945 and 16,880 points when the power limit is removed, according to the results available on the Web. True, you need to understand that in all these cases the results were obtained on the CPU before they were released to the market, so they may be slightly different for serial samples. As for the Core i9-12900K, its upscale score is 825 and 11,320, while the latest Ryzen 9 7950X scores 787 and 15,660.

Under what conditions the Core i9-13900KS was tested is unknown. He, too, could pass the benchmark without power restrictions.

Recall, Intel said that such a processor will be released next year in a limited edition.

Is the cheapest video card of the current generation now

Intel is indeed gearing up to launch the ultra-affordable Arc A310 graphics card. Yesterday the company introduced the flagship Arc A770 and new processors, but the A310 quietly registered on the company’s website.

It has only 6 Xe cores, that is, 768 FP32 blocks. The GPU runs at 2100 MHz, and there is also 4 GB of GDDR6 memory at 15.5 GHz and a 64-bit bus.

The card does not have a price, but with such parameters it cannot be large. In addition, the same Arc A380 is priced at only $140, while the A310 should be cheaper. This will mean that it is the Arc A310 that will become the cheapest current generation video card on the market, since the Radeon RX 6400 and GeForce GTX 1630 (if it can be attributed to the current generation at all) are simply more expensive.
