Not so long ago, the RTX 3080 Ti appeared in the catalog of the Polish retailer X-Kom, but without the price. And now sellers from Australia and New Zealand have added it to their catalogs, but with prices.
And immediately, what can be noted is a very wide range of prices. The most affordable options are the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Eagle and the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Vision OC, which cost NZ $ 1,732.75, which roughly equals US $ 1,350.
MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Ventus 3X OC is also presented in the catalogs of sellers for the equivalent of 1800 US dollars. Finally, another store offers the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Gaming OC for $ 2,250.
It should be noted that these are preliminary prices, which are not affected in any way by the excitement or shortage of video cards. After the start of real sales, they will probably be corrected, and, most likely, not downward. Sellers also indicate the approximate timing of the appearance of the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti in stores – in one case we are talking about the end of May, in the second – about the delivery of the first batch on May 13. And this is all quite consistent with previously published data: the official premiere of the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will take place on May 18, and sales will start on May 26. Actually, preliminary data on the cost is also confirmed: as reported, for the reference Nvidia will ask for about $ 1,200.
Recall that the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is built on the GA102-225 GPU with 80 computing units, 10240 CUDA cores and a frequency of 1.365-1.665 GHz. The memory bus width is 384 bits, the amount of GDDR6X memory is 12 GB. The important thing is that this model will have hardware protection against mining: when mining Ethereum, the hash rate will be halved. A similar system will appear in all other models in the Ampere line.
Not as thick as new Nvidia graphics cards. Non-Reference XFX RX 7900 XT Merc 310 Image Revealed
XFX will offer non-reference 3D cards of the Radeon RX 7000 line. Images of the RX 7900 XT Merc 310 model have already appeared on the Web, but we can safely assume that there will also be a similar-looking RX 7900 XTX Merc 310.
The card is made in the usual XFX design. It is very long, but not the thickest by modern standards. It will probably take up less than three expansion slots.
You can also highlight three power connectors (8 + 8 + 8) and the absence of a USB-C port, which is available on new generation AMD reference adapters.
Recall that the RX 7900 will be launched on December 13th. On the same day, reviews of new AMD products will be published. If the new 3D cards prove to be very successful for their prices, Nvidia can reduce the price of the GeForce RTX 4080, because it is 20% more expensive than the top RX 7900 XTX.
Intel graphics cards are drastically faster in some older games. Intel has worked on support for DirectX 9
Intel Arc graphics cards, among other things, have rather mediocre performance in older games. But today the company has released a fresh driver that significantly changes the situation, although not in all games.
The company has worked on optimization for some specific games, adding native support for DirectX 9. In particular, it is important to note Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, in which the performance of Arc adapters increased by almost 80%. The company has also worked on the 1% percentile, increasing the rate by up to 2.3 times, which should make the gameplay smoother.
Not all old games have received an impressive performance boost, but Intel can still be commended for continuing to work on its accelerators.
The GeForce RTX 4080 12GB is back. First GeForce RTX 4070 Ti unveiled
Rumors that the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB video card, canceled right before the release, will return under the name GeForce RTX 4070 Ti have been fully confirmed. Colorful has completely declassified the RTX 4070 Ti BattleAx Deluxe 3D card, and its specs are exactly the same as those of the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB.
Although the cooler is different from the cooler that Nvidia equips its video cards with, the Colorful RTX 4070 Ti BattleAx Deluxe is the reference model in everything else. It is built on the AD104 GPU and has 12 GB of GDDR6X memory with a frequency of 21 GHz. The base frequency of the GPU is 2310 MHz.
There is only one connector for connecting additional power – a 16-pin one, to which GeForce RTX 4090 users have a lot of complaints. However, the consumption of the RTX 4070 Ti is significantly lower, so it is hardly worth worrying about the melting of the connectors in this case. Colorful doesn’t specify the number of CUDA cores, but it should be 7680, which is exactly what Nvidia claimed for the RTX 4080 12 GB.
According to preliminary data, sales of the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti will start on January 5, immediately after the formal official premiere on January 3.
