So, the reviews of the Radeon RX 7900 video cards are published, and we can finally understand what AMD did this time.
For consideration, let’s take the material TechPowerUp, as one of the most voluminous. In addition, our colleagues have finally changed the CPU to the most modern one. Since the RX 7900 is aimed at the high end, we will only consider the results in 4K.
So, as you can see, the miracle did not happen. The RTX 4090 AMD new products do not fall very far, but they should not. As the company itself said, the RX 7900 XTX is aimed at competing with the RTX 4080. And here we see that this is exactly the case. We can say that the new items are as close as possible with a slight advantage in the direction of the AMD card. If you look at the results in more detail, you can see that more games were still running faster on the RX 7900 XTX, with five out of 25 games being faster by between 14% and 21%. In the case of the RTX 4080, Civilization VI helped out a bit, where the adapter is noticeably faster than the competitor. Without this game, the final results would be a little different, but in general it is not so important. The cards are very close. But that’s performance without ray tracing. If we consider it, unfortunately for AMD, everything is worse. Here the RTX 4080 is 16% faster than the opponent, and the RX 7900 XTX performs at the level of the RTX 3090 Ti. AMD’s new products, as before, lose more performance when tracing-based effects are activated than Nvidia cards, and the situation has only slightly improved relative to the RX 6000 line. However, ray tracing is not available in all games, and not everyone is interested in it.
As for energy efficiency, here, unlike the cards of the previous generation, Nvidia solutions win. The RX 7900 XTX draws about 10% more than the RTX 4080.
As for the RX 7900 XT, remember that it is $100 or 10% cheaper than the RX 7900 XTX. But at the same time, tests have shown that the latter is much more profitable, since it is almost 20% faster. The youngest of AMD’s new products performs exactly at the level of the RTX 3090 Ti. Unfortunately, there is no RX 6950 XT result here, but apparently the RX 7900 XT is not much faster.
Thus, in terms of price and performance ratio, the older novelty is more profitable. It costs $1,000 (the official price in the US and without taxes), that is, the RTX 4080 with the same or even slightly lower performance is 20% more expensive. We will find out what the real prices and availability of new AMD cards will be tomorrow and in the coming weeks after the start of sales.
Can Nvidia thank you again for another push? Tests have shown that the mobile GeForce RTX 4090 is approximately equal to the desktop RTX 3090
Today, thematic resources began to publish reviews of laptops with GeForce RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 graphics cards, so now we can assess what mobile gaming will be like in the next couple of years.
In the case of laptops, reviews are usually not as voluminous as for desktop graphics cards, so information will have to be taken from various sources. Let’s start with Computerbase, which didn’t test new games in 4K, using WQHD resolution instead. In addition, in this case, there are only tests of the RTX 4090.
In this configuration, the mobile RTX 4090 is identical to the desktop RTX 3090, while the desktop RTX 4070 Ti, which is a relative of the mobile RTX 4090, is only 5% faster. The gaming capabilities of the RTX 4070 Ti and RTX 3090/3090 Ti are well known to us, so we can safely say that top laptops are now capable of handling 4K games without any reservations at maximum graphics settings.
As for the comparison with the mobile RTX 3080 Ti that topped the lineup last generation, it’s better to check out the TechSpot review, which shows that in 4K the new card is on average 58% faster than the old one! This is about the same increase as when moving from RTX 3090 Ti to RTX 4090.
If we talk about the mobile RTX 4080, then it is faster than the mobile RTX 3080 Ti by 25-30% depending on the resolution.
Thus, both new Nvidia mobile graphics cards provide an impressive increase relative to the best mobile solution of the last generation, and the RTX 4090 takes mobile gaming to a new level, because just a few months ago, the RTX 3090, which is now equaled by the mobile RTX 4090, was one of the most powerful graphics cards on the market.
At the same time, as always, it is worth remembering that mobile video cards, unlike desktop ones, can differ greatly due to power limits. The tests above involved cards with maximum limits, but the same RTX 4090, instead of its 175 W, can have a limit of only 80 W, in which case the performance will be completely different.
The first tests of the China-exclusive Intel Core i7-13790F Black Edition processor have appeared
As we already know, exclusive Intel Black Edition CPUs have reappeared in China, which are not available in other markets. And today, a review of the older model Core i7-13790F appeared on the Web.
The Core i7-13790F is identical in configuration to the Core i7-13700F but has 3MB more L3 cache. In CPU-Z, such a processor scores 836 and 12,140 points in single-threaded and multi-threaded modes, respectively. This makes it slightly faster than the Core i9-12900KS or Ryzen 9 5950X.
In China, a novelty is now asking for $ 442, but there may well be a premium for novelty.
A cheaper RTX 40 graphics card will be released in April. GeForce RTX 4070 is credited with 5888 CUDA cores
The line of GeForce RTX 40 graphics cards may be replenished with a more affordable model no earlier than in April.
The Videocardz resource says that it got hold of Nvidia documents, where exactly April is indicated as the launch month of the GeForce RTX 4070.
It is not yet known how much the video card will cost, but it will clearly be cheaper than the $800 RTX 4070 Ti. As for the parameters, at the moment, leaks and rumors say that the card will receive 5888 CUDA cores and 12 GB of GDDR6X memory with a 192-bit bus.
So far we can only guess about performance. That being said, if the leaks are correct, then the performance difference between the RTX 4070 and RTX 4070 Ti will be significantly larger than the RTX 3070/3070 Ti pair, as there is a much larger difference in the number of CUDA cores. At the same time, we recall that the RTX 3070 also has 5888 CUDA cores.
