GeFoce RTX 3080 on eBay for just $420. The collapsed cryptocurrency pulled video cards along with it

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%.

Incredible CPU performance or super powerful iGPU. Ryzen 7000 mobile processor details revealed

Incredible CPU performance or super powerful iGPU Ryzen 7000 mobile

The new generation of mobile Ryzen 7000 processors will be much more impressive than their predecessors than the desktop ones, according to recent data.

We are talking about a line of APUs called Dragon Range. Processors in this line will be labeled as Ryzen 70000HX. Now AMD also has such APUs, but they are not much different from other mobile high-end models. Dragon Range will be very different.

As you can see, the source says that within this line, AMD will finally launch processors with more than eight cores in the mobile segment. More specifically, the Ryzen 9 7980HX will have 16 cores, the Ryzen 9 7900HX will have 12 cores, the Ryzen 7 7800HX will have 8 cores, and the Ryzen 5 7600HX will have 6 cores. That is, these APUs will be as similar as possible to desktop ones. True, AMD’s Ryzen mobile processors have always had a monolithic crystal, and that is why they were maximum eight-core. It turns out that Dragon Range will be chiplet. Perhaps, physically, these will be the same desktop APUs, only with reduced power limits. For example, the source indicates the maximum frequencies in the range of 4.8-5.0 GHz or slightly higher. In addition, such APUs will receive iGPUs with 256 stream processors.

AMD will also have a Phoenix line with Ryzen 7000HS processors. These APUs will be more familiar with six to eight cores. The Ryzen 9 7980HS, Ryzen 9 7900HS, and Ryzen 7 7800HS will each have eight cores, while the Ryzen 5 7600HS will have six. In this case, the former will receive an iGPU with 1536 stream processors, and the latter will have a core with 768 stream processors.

The older iGPU, as previously stated and according to the source, will operate at frequencies of 2.6-3.0 GHz, which will provide incredible performance for the integrated graphics core – 9.2 TFLOPS. This could be the level of the mobile GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q.

Despite the smaller number of processor cores, such APUs can also be chiplet-based. The source believes that there will be three crystals: a processor, an iGPU, and some kind of chiplet associated with the memory subsystem. Perhaps it will be Infinity Cache memory.

Weaker than any video card of modern generations GeForce GTX

Images of the GeForce GTX 1630 graphics card have appeared on the Web, which should hit the market tomorrow if Nvidia does not postpone the launch again.

The model is very similar to MSI cards, but this device is from Colorful. The adapter of the BattleAx line received a cooling system with a pair of fans, but the radiator does not have a single heat pipe. However, given the parameters of the GTX 1630, its power consumption will be low.

Ports include HDMI, DisplayPort, and the now rare DVI. To work, the card still requires a six-pin power connector.

Recall that the new Nvidia is based on the TU117 GPU with 512 CUDA cores. She also received 4 GB of memory and a 64-bit bus. The adapter is expected to be even slightly slower than the GTX 1050 Ti.

The new Apple M2-based MacBook Pro has half the SSD speed of last year’s Apple M1-based NGA model

The new Apple M2 based MacBook Pro has half the SSD

Following the release of Apple’s new 13-inch MacBook Pro based on the Apple M2, the $1,300 base model with a 256GB SSD was found to have significantly slower read/write speeds compared to the equivalent previous generation model.

YouTube channel Max Tech and Created Tech tested this version with the Blackmagic Disk Speed ​​Test app and found that the SSD read and write speeds are about 1450 MB/s, which is about 50% slower when reading and about 30% slower when writing. compared to a 13-inch Apple M1-based MacBook Pro with a 256GB SSD.

Max Tech results:

  • 13″ MacBook Pro (M1/256GB) Read Speed: 2900
  • 13″ MacBook Pro (M2/256GB) Read speed: 1446
  • 13″ MacBook Pro (M1/256 GB) Write speed: 2215
  • 13″ MacBook Pro (M2/256 GB) Write speed: 1463

Upon disassembly, the new 13-inch MacBook Pro with 256 GB of memory was found to have only one NAND flash chip, while the previous model had two NAND chips of 128 GB each. This difference probably explains why the new model has a slower SSD: multiple NAND chips in parallel provide faster speeds.

Perhaps this decision is due to lower costs and / or lack of components. Apple has not yet commented on the situation.
