GeForce RTX 3080, GeForce RTX 3070, Radeon RX 3090, Radeon RX 3080 and many other video cards will rise in price in the near future

The next generation of Nvidia and AMD graphics cards is a real pain for ordinary users. Not only are they difficult to buy, but also prices are constantly rising. First, due to a shortage of production, then – because of the rushing to new heights of bitcoin and the associated high demand from miners. There are also problems with logistics and customs due to the epidemiological situation in many countries. And now a new misfortune is the lack of memory chips. And it doesn’t matter whether we are talking about GDDR5 or GDDR6 – both are lacking.

According to the source, the rise in price of budget video cards due to memory chips has already happened, and in February we are waiting for the second stage, it will affect models of the middle and higher levels. The source characterizes the situation in the Chinese home market, but it will clearly affect all countries, the only difference is in the time of the effect. In China, price increases for 3D cards are expected after the local New Year, that is, in mid to late February. In other countries and in other territories, prices may rise later, but there is no doubt that devices will rise in price again.

The level of the rise in price is not specified, but it is unlikely that it will be even ten percent. At the same time, it should be noted that the cost of video cards is already greatly overestimated, and even one or two percent of the increase will be sensitive for users.

Interestingly, the price hike is predicted not only for desktop video cards: mobile versions will also skyrocket in price. This means that laptops will also become more expensive, especially gaming ones.

Radeon RX 7900 Video Card Reviews To Be Published Earlier

The Radeon RX 7900 graphics cards will go on sale on December 13th. Previously, it was believed that the reviews would be published on the same day, but now it turned out that they were not.

Radeon RX 7900 Video Card Reviews To Be Published Earlier Than Expected

Reviews will appear on December 12, that is, the day before the launch. This will allow everyone to get acquainted with the new products and decide on the purchase before the start of sales. On December 12, reviews of both new AMD video cards will be published at once.

Recall that the Radeon RX 7900 XT and RX 7900 XTX are priced at $900 and $1,000 respectively. This is in the US and excluding taxes. At the moment, Nvidia has no direct competitors for these new products. The RTX 4070 Ti, with an expected price of $900, won’t be released until January, while the RTX 4080 is priced at $1,200. True, there are rumors that Nvidia will lower the price a little, and even without this the adapter is already available in some places at a price below the recommended one, but it is unlikely that the RTX 4080 will cost $1000 to directly compete with the new AMD flagship.

GeForce RTX 4070 will get as many CUDA cores as

Nvidia will release a GeForce RTX 4070 Ti graphics card soon, but it will still be expensive. According to the latest data, we are talking about $ 900 in the US and without taxes. Now we have the first data on the more affordable RTX 4070.

GeForce RTX 4070 will get as many CUDA cores as RTX 3070

The model will be based on the AD104-250-A1 GPU with 5888 CUDA cores, which is the same as the RTX 3070. For comparison, the RTX 4070 Ti will have the same GPU but with 7680 CUDA cores.

Also, the younger card will receive 12 GB of GDDR6X memory with a frequency of 21 GHz, 36 MB of L2 cache and will be characterized by a TDP of 250 W. There is no data on the memory bus, but given the amount of memory, it will probably remain 192-bit.

Nothing is known about performance yet, but the number of CUDA cores on the RTX 4070 will be almost 25% less than on the RTX 4070 Ti, so the performance will definitely be significantly lower.

The information was shared by the insider kopite7kimi, who at one time was the first to accurately describe the parameters of the GeForce RTX 30 cards, and he also described the RTX 40 cards more than once. In general, it is one of the most reliable sources in this segment.

The Radeon RX 7900 graphics cards will be released on December 13, and reviews will be published on the same day. But thematic resources were allowed to share the unpacking today.

Despite the fact that the RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT are as similar as possible on the outside, they are still not identical. The older model has a length of 287 mm and weighs 1.8 kg, while the younger one, with a mass of 1.5 kg, is characterized by a length of 267 mm. By the standards of modern Nvidia flagships, these are very compact solutions. In addition, they occupy only 2.5 expansion slots instead of three or four for the new GeForce RTX 40 products. Actually, the general photo clearly shows how much smaller AMD new products are.

Of the less significant, we can note two power connectors (8 + 8), an air temperature sensor immediately behind the fan, as well as the same three red stripes on the radiator. It turns out that they symbolize the third generation of cards based on the RDNA architecture.
