GeForce RTX 3090 Ti: 24 GB of memory @ 21 GHz, TDP 450 W and another new power connector. The card is expected in January

The new top-end Nvidia graphics card may not be called the GeForce RTX 3090 Super, as it was said in the latest rumors, but the RTX 3090 Ti. True, this does not change the essence, but it is precisely this name that new data indicate.

The same data is confirmed by the earlier ones regarding the TDP adapter of 450 W! That’s 100 watts more than the current RTX 3090, and it’s not really clear where this huge difference comes from.

The RTX 3090 Ti could also get a new power connector. And this is not about the 12-pin Molex Micro-Fit 3.0 connector that Nvidia uses in the RTX 30 FE cards, but about a similar, but already 16-pin Molex Micro-Fit 3.0 connector. At the same time, almost no one uses the current 12-pin except Nvidia. In addition, it can transmit up to 600 watts of power, so it’s not very clear why you need to change the connector again. However, this is also still unconfirmed data.

Another change is memory. Its volume is unlikely to increase, since the current RTX 3090 has 24 GB. But at the same time, presumably, the frequency will grow to 21 GHz, and the 1 GB microcircuits will be replaced by 2 GB microcircuits. This will also entail a change in the design of the printed circuit board. By the way, the same new 2 GB microcircuits are credited to the upcoming GeForce RTX 3070 Ti with 16 GB of memory.

Recall that in January next year, Nvidia is expected to release both the RTX 3090 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti with 16 GB of memory, as well as the updated RTX 2060 with 12 GB of memory, which will allegedly retail for only $ 300, which by today’s standards very cheap.

The new Intel processors are likely to be more expensive than their predecessors. There are already prices for two new models in the US

It looks like the new Intel processors will significantly raise the price bar. A large American network MicroCenter has already added a couple of new Alder Lake generation products to its range.

The Core i7-12700K is priced at $ 470, while the top-end Core i9-12900K will cost $ 670. For comparison, the Core i9-11900K has a MSRP of $ 550, and Intel’s flagship model has always cost about the same for many years.

Of course, there hasn’t been an official announcement yet, so we don’t know the recommended prices. But today we have already seen an example from Germany, where the price was also above $ 600.

At the same time, it is hardly worth blaming Intel for such a pricing policy. First, the new CPUs will be much more efficient than their predecessors. And secondly, the same Ryzen 5000 is also not cheap, and it is not yet clear if the Ryzen 9 5950X will be able to withstand in comparison with the new flagship of Intel.

What’s missing in the new MacBook Pros yet? Support for external video cards did not appear here either.

Published

on

As you know, the first Apple laptops on the SoC M1 do not support external video cards. We now know this is true for the new M1 Pro and M1 Max-based MacBook Pros as well.

Despite the presence of Thinderbolt 4 ports, Apple’s new laptops lack support for external graphics cards, and the company has yet to explain this limitation. Perhaps it is primarily due to the Apple Silicon architecture.

Of course, we have already seen that, at least for the M1 Max, using an external video card may be pointless, but we will not mention the M1 Pro and the original M1.

Whether support for external video cards will appear in future Apple laptops with its own platforms is anyone’s guess. It is possible that GPU performance in Apple Silicon will grow at such a rate that discrete adapters will really not be useful in the corresponding bundles.

Recall also that the new MacBook Pro also lacks support for the latest standards for SD memory cards.

Finally, Windows 11 users have the full power of Ryzen processors. Both performance issues have been resolved

Published

AMD and Microsoft have finally resolved both Ryzen and Epyc CPU performance issues when running Windows 11.

Microsoft has already released the patch in the Insider Build, now it’s available to everyone. Recall that it solves the problem of high latency in the L3 cache.

AMD, in turn, has released a patch that solves the problem of UEFI CPPC2 with incorrect work of the task scheduler for processor cores.

In the case of the first patch, you need to install a Windows update, but the second one needs to be downloaded from the AMD website yourself. More precisely, you do not need to download a patch, but a fresh driver for the motherboard chipset – the patch is part of it.
