GeForce RTX 3080 Ti with 12 GB of memory will be released in mid-April. But will it be possible to buy it? And for how much?

According to a source with reference to the Chinese resource MyDrivers, Nvidia will present a pre-top video card GeForce RTX 3080 Ti in mid-April. In the second or third week of the next month. The novelty will receive 12 GB of GDDR6X memory and, to some extent, will repeat the fate of the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti.

As you know, the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3070 are built on the same GA104 GPU and provide almost the same performance both in games and in mining. But only the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is slightly cheaper. And the same will happen with the RTX 3080 Ti: being built on the GPU GA102, it will be much closer to the GeForce RTX 3090 than the RTX 3080. At the same time, the price, of course, will be lower.

The RTX 3080 Ti is rumored to receive 10,240 CUDA cores – a lot more than the RTX 3080 (8704) and just slightly less than the RTX 3090 (10496). It is expected that the GPU frequency of the RTX 3080 Ti will be slightly higher than that of the RTX 3090 (1.5-1.75 GHz versus 1.4-1.7 GHz), but the GDDR6X memory will be half as much: 12 GB versus 24 GB for the older model. Also, the RTX 3080 Ti is assigned a 352-bit memory bus and 80 Ray Tracing cores. The GeForce 3090 has 384 bits and 82 Ray Tracing cores, respectively.

In general, so far, on paper and by rumors, the RTX 3080 Ti looks very promising, but the question of price remains open. The official one will most likely be at the $ 1,000 mark, but the real one can easily exceed $ 2,500, since the usual RTX 3080 is hard to find cheaper than $ 2,000. And, of course, the RTX 3080 Ti with the power level of the RTX 3090 will quickly become a scarce commodity: Bitcoin is becoming more expensive, which means that miners will increase the capacity of their farms. And a new powerful 3D-accelerator will come in handy for them.

Top 10 SSD manufacturers cut shipments by 15% in 2020, according to TrendForce

Published

on

A little more than two months remain until the end of 2021, and TrendForce experts have just analyzed the situation with the supply of SSD modules in 2020. They concluded that the COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the supply of these products. Affected by the disruption of production and logistics processes, which began in the second quarter, when governments around the world began to impose restrictions, in their opinion, necessary to combat the pandemic. As a result, the supply of SSDs to the channel (retail sales) amounted to 111.5 million units, which is 15% less than in 2019. As for the market leaders, the top three remained unchanged: Kingston, Adata and Kimtigo.

Analysts clarify that when looking at the overall solid-state drive market, NAND flash vendors, led by Samsung, accounted for about 35% of total shipments in 2020, with solid-state drive module makers accounting for the remaining 65%. The top ten module manufacturers provide 71% of SSD shipments per channel. Their shares are shown in the press release published by TrendForce in the form of a table:

Third-party retailers have begun offering Xiaomi’s recent innovation, the Redmi G 2021 gaming laptop, which until now has only been sold in China – internationally.

Xiaomi launched the Redmi G 2021 in the Chinese market in September. The model is being promoted as the most powerful laptop ever produced under the Xiaomi brands. In China, a device with an AMD Ryzen 7 5800H processor and a full-featured GeForce RTX 3060 is available for $ 1,085.

Now the global versions of Redmi G 2021 have become available for ordering internationally on several trading platforms at once – it is offered at least on AliExperss and Banggood.

The younger configuration, with Intel Core i5-11260H and GeForce RTX 3050, is offered by AliExperss and Banggood for $ 1,379.99 and $ 1,369.99, respectively. This variation, like the older one, offers a 16.1-inch screen with a 144 Hz refresh rate, 16 GB of RAM and a 512 GB solid-state drive. The older version, with AMD Ryzen 7 5800H and GeForce RTX 3060, is offered on AliExperss for $ 1,689.99.

No, the Apple M1 Max SoC is not capable of competing with the GeForce RTX 2080, but the performance is very high. There were tests of the new MacBook Pro in games

The GPU performance in the Apple M1 Max SoC exceeds 10 TFLOPS, which can be compared with the PS5 or GeForce RTX 2080. But the TFLOPS figure is not directly related to the performance in games. And now we have the opportunity to assess what Apple’s solution is capable of in games.

And it is really capable of a lot. In Tomb Rider, the top-end Apple platform performs at the level of the mobile GeForce RTX 3060. Yes, we are talking about the 70-watt version, that is, almost the slowest. Recall that the RTX 3060 for laptops has a power limit ranging from 60 to 115 watts.

However, we are still talking about a very productive mobile video card of the most modern generation. Yes, you need to wait for tests in more games to put together a more complete picture, but you can state the very high performance of Apple’s solution right now. M1 Pro, by the way, also looks decent. This is roughly the level of mobile GeForce RTX 3050 Ti or RTX 3050.

Of course, the MacBook Pro is not bought for games at all, since the situation with games on macOS is not easy. However, this does not prevent us from evaluating the new Apple SoCs simply in terms of their capabilities.
