In recent days, Bitcoin, along with the rest of the cryptocurrency, has collapsed in price, and graphics cards have followed.
Adapters are getting cheaper both on store shelves and on sites like eBay. For example, the GeForce RTX 3080 can already be found there for as little as $650, up from $900 just two weeks ago, and some miners are selling farms of six of these cards for as little as $2,500, which is less than $420 per adapter! Just a few months ago, the RTX 3080 was hard to find for less than $1,000.
Prices for new cards are also falling even further, although on average in the US and Europe they are already very close to the recommended ones.
The same RTX 3080 new in the US is now selling for $770, the RTX 3070 can be found for $560, and the RTX 3050 has dropped to $300.
In the case of AMD adapters, which almost always had lower markups anyway, we are often talking about prices below the recommended values. For example, a brand new RX 6650 XT sells for $380 at an MSRP of $400, while the RX 6600 can be found for $290 when it should be $330.
On average, all video cards have fallen in stores by 2% over the past two weeks, but prices on eBay have fallen by 10%. At the same time, among the new cards, RTX 3070 and 3070 Ti fell the most since June 1 (by 7%), and on eBay, the Radeon RX 6950 XT collapsed in price by 21%.
The Huawei Kirin 9000s platform is truly unique. It has a 12-core processor, although it’s far from record-breaking performance.
The Kirin 9000s platform continues to bring surprises, although smartphones based on it have been on sale for some time.
After the latest Huawei flagships received HarmonyOS 18.104.22.168, Geekbench software began to define the characteristics of the new SoC differently. If earlier it was seen as an eight-core solution, now the number of processor cores is indicated as 12.
It’s worth remembering here that AnTuTu initially determined that the platform had exactly 12 cores, however, including two Cortex-A34.
Geekbench, well, indicates the types of cores, but talks about three clusters: four cores with a frequency of 1.53 GHz, two with a frequency of 2.62 GHz and six with a frequency of 2.15 GHz. This information is confirmed by screenshots from the mobile version of the benchmark.
We have not yet seen mobile SoCs with 12-core CPUs. At the same time, the performance of the Kirin 9000s, despite this configuration, is far from flagship by 2023 standards, that is, the cores themselves are not the most powerful.
A year after the start of sales in China, Xiaomi’s 30-inch gaming monitor has finally reached Europe. The price has been announced
Sales of the new Xiaomi gaming monitor began in Europe: in April 2022, this model entered the Chinese market under the name Redmi Curved Monitor 30, but in Europe the device is called Xiaomi Curved Gaming Monitor 30.
The resolution of the curved panel is 2560 x 1080 pixels, the radius of curvature is 1.8 m. Maximum brightness is 300 cd/sq.m., contrast is 3000: 1. The stated pixel response time is 4 ms, AMD FreeSync Premium, Picture- in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture. Video inputs include one DisplayPort, HDMI 2.1 and HDMI 1.4.
In the UK, the Xiaomi Curved Gaming Monitor 30 costs 240 pounds, in Spain – 240 euros.
The Core i9-14900KF is extremely slightly ahead of the Core i9-13900K and significantly behind the Ryzen 9 7950X3D. The results of the new Intel CPU have appeared in PassMark
The Core i9-14900KF processor appeared in the PassMark benchmark database and immediately became the leader in the single-threaded performance rating.
Despite the fact that technically the Core i9-14900K/KF is a complete copy of the Core i9-13900KS, apparently there are some settings related to power limits. As a result, the new model is still a little faster than its predecessor, although this is unlikely to be noticeable in practice.
But in multi-threaded mode, which is much more important from a practical point of view, everything is more interesting: the new product differs vanishingly little in performance from the Core i9-13900K, and is even inferior to the Core i9-13900KS. And all of them are noticeably behind the Ryzen 9 7950X3D.
