Nvidia GPU Partners Ready for First ResizableBAR BIOS Updates for RTX 30 Series Models

Ever since AMD announced its Smart Access memory technology, Nvidia graphics card owners have wondered if Nvidia plans to add this technology to its graphics cards. While support for older generations is not planned, the manufacturer has promised to add ResizableBAR support to RTX 30 series models.

The first was the GeForce RTX 3060 model, for which ResizableBAR support was announced at the time of the announcement. For other models, Nvidia has promised that a corresponding update for the Founders Edition cards will be released by the end of March. While there is no news yet on Nvidia’s website, it looks like some of Nvidia’s GPU partners are already offering BIOS updates for some RTX 30 cards that include ResizableBAR support.

In particular, the source announced the availability of updates for some video cards manufactured by Galax and Gainward in the Chinese market.

The update is not digitally signed by Nvidia, but looks like an official tool. By the way, this is not a BIOS update in the usual sense, but a utility that modifies the existing firmware. According to the source, the modification should work with all RTX 30 video cards. However, he warns that users take all actions at their own peril and risk. Download links are given in the source.

12228 stream processors 384 bit memory bus and 192MB fast cache

Another portion of preliminary details about AMD’s new generation 3D cards has been published on the Web.

12,228 stream processors, 384-bit memory bus, and 192MB fast cache.  Possible characteristics of the Radeon RX 7900 XT

It is assumed that the Radeon RX 7900 XT will be built on the Navi 31 GPU, consisting of one GCD module (the equivalent of CCD in Ryzen processors) with 12,288 stream processors and six MCD modules – each with 16 MB of third-level cache (Infinity Cache) and 64 -bit memory controller. In total, this gives 96 MB of cache memory and a 384-bit bus, but the use of bulk packaging technology will allow each MCD to place another cache chip, as a result, the total volume of Infinity Cahce will be 192 MB.

This is the full Navi 31 configuration, but there will also be a stripped-down version – with 10,752 stream processors and five MCDs – with 160 MB of Infinity Cache and a 320-bit bus. Such a GPU could form the basis of the Radeon RX 7800 XT.

Navi 32 is another contender for the Radeon RX 7800 XT (or more likely the Radeon RX 7800). It predicts the presence of 7680 stream processors, a 256-bit bus and 64 MB of Infinity Cache (there will be no additional cache memory chips). Finally, the Radeon RX 7700 XT can get a monolithic Navi 33 GPU with 4096 stream processors and 32 MB Infinity Cahce and a 128-bit bus.

Intel hinted at the prices of older graphics cards Arc

Intel is still keeping the intrigue and does not name the exact prices for its Arc A770 and Arc A750 video cards. However, it seems that the chipmaker himself hinted at their cost.

As noted, participants in the Xe HPG Scavenger Hunt contest can choose the Core i7-12700K and Core i5-12600K processors as a prize – this is offered as an alternative to the Arc A770 and Arc A750, respectively. Thus, knowing the recommended prices for chips, you can roughly calculate the prices of video cards.

This suggests that the price of the top-end Arc A770 will not exceed $410, and the Arc A750 – $290. Of course, this is just an estimated cost.

Note that the letters received by the participants of the event say that the cards will debut soon, but it will not be specified whether this will happen in the summer. Perhaps they will appear in the fall.

In terms of specifications, the A770 will be based on the ACM-G10 GPU with 4096 cores clocked at up to 2.5GHz. She is promised 16 GB of GDDR6 video memory with an effective frequency of 15.5 GHz, as well as a 256-bit bus.

The Arc A750 version will get the same chip but with 3584 cores. Also, the card will have 8 GB of GDDR6 memory with a frequency of 15.5 GHz and a 256-bit bus.

Ethereum is growing and graphics card prices continue to fall

Nvidia’s flagship GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card has dropped to almost $1,000 in the US, but AMD’s top-end graphics cards are also dropping in price, with the Radeon RX 6900 XT hitting a low this week, dropping to $700. Not so long ago, the Radeon RX 6700 XT was sold for that kind of money.

Formally, the Radeon RX 6900 XT is not the top model in the AMD line, as there is the Radeon RX 6950 XT. But the difference between them is quite small. With its 16GB of GDDR6 memory, 256-bit bus, 5120 stream processors, the Radeon RX 6900 XT will be relevant for a long time to come.

Interestingly, the new price low of the Radeon RX 6900 XT was recorded against the backdrop of an increase in the cost of Ethereum. It can be assumed that by introducing new discounts, sellers are starting to clear out warehouses before the release of the Radeon RX 7000 line of video cards.
