The official sales of the GeForce RTX 3050 graphics card for desktop PCs will start on January 27, its reviews with tests in games will be published tomorrow, but the first such material has already appeared on the Web. It was clearly published ahead of schedule by mistake: the publication was hidden, but some data from the review is provided by the Videocardz resource.
The review compared the GeForce RTX 3050 (tested with EVGA RTX 3050 XC Black) to the Radeon RX 6600, RX 6600 XT, and GeForce RTX 3060. I would also like to see a comparison with the Radeon RX 6500 XT, but it’s not available. However, with regard to games, we can already say that the GeForce RTX 3050 will be faster than the Radeon RX 6500 XT, because it noticeably outperforms the Radeon RX 6600 XT in Watch Dogs Legion.
In the 3DMark test, the GeForce RTX 3050 lost to absolutely all video cards from the comparison, but in games the situation looks different: in Watch Dogs Legion there are even more than 30 fps, but only at Full HD resolution and DLSS enabled. Radeon video cards here are not competitors at all for Nvidia’s new product. In the Control GeForce RTX 3050, at the level of the Radeon RX 6600 XT, but with Full HD resolution and DLSS turned on, the new Nvidia even shows 50 fps.
In general, reviewers indicate that despite the presence of Ray Tracing cores, the GeForce RTX 3050 is not for games with real-time ray tracing. But DLSS support greatly improves gaming performance and is something Nvidia has never been able to offer at this price point.
When the GeForce RTX 4080 and Ryzen 9 7950X3D were placed in a sneaker. Unusual computer Cooler Master Sneaker X goes on sale
More than six months after its announcement, the unusual Cooler Master Sneaker X PC sneaker is finally going on sale. Moreover, the basic version turned out to be much cheaper than previously stated, although the PC is still very expensive.
The cheapest version is the one with Core i7-13700K and RTX 4070 – they ask for $3,500. The modification with RTX 4080 and Ryzen 9 7950X3D turned out to be the most expensive. They are asking 4,700 euros for this one, but in the USA, apparently, it simply won’t be available.
The configuration also always includes at least 32 GB of RAM and a 2 TB SSD. The power supply always has a power of 850 W.
It is difficult to understand from the photo what the dimensions of the PC are, so it is worth noting that it is 650 x 305 x 650 mm.
Almost $5,000 for an Nvidia video card with a 256-bit bus, but 32 GB of memory. RTX 5000 Ada appeared in retail
Nvidia has launched the RTX 5000 Ada graphics adapter. This is a professional solution that should not be confused with the regular RTX 5000, since the latter is a previous generation model.
The RTX 5000 Ada has been available for about a month now, but previously it could only be purchased as part of ready-made workstations. Now it has appeared in retail, although so far, apparently, only in China.
There they ask for about $4,800 for a new product. This is about half the price of the RTX 6000 Ada, but the parameters of the younger model are simpler. The card offers an AD102 GPU, but with only 12,800 active CUDA cores. At the same time, the new product has 32 GB of memory, but a 256-bit bus. Performance (FP32) is 65.3 TFLOPS with a TDP of only 250 W.
Neither in Blender nor in V-Ray can the new Core i9-14900K outperform the “old” Ryzen 9 7950X
The results of testing the Core i9-14900K processor in tasks that can actually load modern multi-core processors have appeared on the Internet.
In Blender, the new product scores almost 560 points, which is 6% more than the Core i9-13900KS. This is good considering that these are technically identical CPUs. The new product is already 8% ahead of its direct predecessor, the Core i9-13900K. However, the Ryzen 9 7950X is still a little faster.
In V-Ray, the new Intel flagship showed a result of 27,790 points, ahead of the Core i9-13900KS by 5% and its predecessor by 8%. But here again the AMD flagship is ahead.
Of course, it was clear in advance that Raptor Lake Refresh would only be a very minor update (except for the Core i7, which will get more cores), but now we can verify this not only through the results from Geekbench.
