Another 3DCenter diagram showing the change in the cost of video cards by month indicates that the most favorable time to buy a 3D card this year was in January and July, and at the moment users are forced to pay for video cards, in fact, twice as much official cost. More precisely, as of November 21, the markup for AMD Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards is 90%, for GeForce RTX 30 graphics cards – 95%.

This chart reflects the dynamics of price changes for Radeon RX 6000 and GeForce RTX 30 graphics cards in Austria and Germany, but the situation is no better in the United States. The difference, perhaps, is only that the prices there are denominated in dollars, not euros, but the margin is about the same.

According to HardwareUnboxed, all Nvidia graphics cards went up in October. And almost all of them now, except for the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, are offered twice as expensive as the official recommended prices (RRP). GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is more expensive than RRP by about 60%. On average, Nvidia 3D cards went up 6% on eBay in October – and now they are (again, on average) 113% more expensive than the RRP.

Even a year after the release, the Radeon RX 6000 and GeForce RTX 30 graphics cards cost twice as much as they should.

AMD video cards on eBay also added in October – they have risen in price by 9% and are offered at twice the recommended retail prices. Despite the fact that the Ethereum rate has declined in the last couple of weeks, it is still at the annual high. At the moment, for 1 ETH, they give about $ 4350. So it is extremely doubtful that video cards will start to fall in price in the near future.

No, GeForce RTX 2060 12GB Founders Edition will not be available at MSRP. The company will not release a reference version of the novelty

Published

The 12GB GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card that Nvidia unveiled the other day will not be available in the Founders Edition.

Initially, the company indicated such a version on its website, but removed it from the description and confirmed to sources that the new product would not be released in such a version.

Thus, the updated RTX 2060 will be available exclusively in non-reference variants. In the current situation, this is a disadvantage, since Founders Edition cards can at least occasionally be bought at the recommended price directly on the Nvidia website or from its partners. Now it turns out that all RTX 2060s in retail will come with huge markups. By the way, we still don’t know the official price for the updated map.

But they are made not only for the sake of a spectacular appearance. They are said to improve cooling. In addition, the case protects the drive from damage. The description says that the drive can withstand drops from a height of up to 2 m.

24-core Intel Raptor Lake processor (Core 13) lit up on the web

Published

on

Intel has not yet released all the processors of the Alder Lake family (Core 12), and the next generation flagship, Raptor Lake, has already appeared on the Web. It is expected that these processors will be released by the end of next year and will differ from Alder Lake in more cores and slightly increased frequency.

In this case, there are 24 computing cores – 8 large (new generation, Raptor Cove) and 16 small (current generation, Gracemont). Only large ones support multithreading, so the CPU allows 32 threads to execute at the same time. The processor was tested on a platform with DDR5 memory, but according to rumors, Intel in the next generation of the CPU will retain the ability to choose the type of memory – DDR5 or DDR4. The workflow and socket will remain the same as for Alder Lake.
