In a year and a half, miners bought out about 20% of all desktop video cards on the market

Miners were indeed a very significant reason for the shortage of video cards last year.

In a year and a half, miners bought out about 20% of all desktop video cards on the market

According to recent data from Bitpro Consulting, over the past year and a half, miners around the world have spent about $15 billion on video cards.

JPR data tells us that in 2021, manufacturers delivered 49 million graphics cards to the market, worth about $51.8 billion. That is, the average sale price of a video card was more than $ 1,050, which is twice as high as, for example, in the third quarter of 2019.

With such data, the source estimated that miners purchased about 14.2 million desktop video cards in a year and a half. However, this number is not entirely accurate, since some miners used special mining cards that are not considered by JPR, while others used gaming laptops for mining. So the actual number of GPUs sent to mining farms may be different.

In any case, even 14.2 million is a lot. Over the same year and a half, about 73.55 million desktop graphics adapters were sold in the world, that is, miners bought out about 20% of all desktop video cards. Considering that the discrete GPU market is currently roughly split between desktops and laptops, it looks like miners have bought back about 10% of all discrete GPUs over the period.

The power consumption of the Radeon RX 7000 series graphics cards will not be as huge as that of the GeForce RTX 40

The power consumption of the Radeon RX 7000 series graphics

Rumors are actively attributing huge power consumption up to 600 W and even higher to GeForce RTX 40 video cards. Radeon RX 7000 cards will also consume more than the current generation.

The power consumption of the Radeon RX 7000 series graphics cards will not be as huge as that of the GeForce RTX 40

AMD Senior Vice President Sam Naffziger revealed some details about the RDNA 3 architecture and products based on it. He also touched upon the topic of energy consumption.

The demand for gaming and computing performance is increasing, while at the same time the development of technical processes is slowing down quite sharply. Thus, the power level will only increase. We now have a multi-year roadmap with very significant energy efficiency improvements to offset this curve, but the trend is there.

Performance is critical, but even if our designs are more energy efficient, that doesn’t mean we won’t raise power levels if competitors are doing the same. They’ll just have to raise them much higher than us.

Thus, the Radeon RX 7000 line, despite the previously stated 50 percent advantage (over the RX 6000) in power efficiency, will stand out for its high power consumption simply because of the huge performance boost. At the same time, AMD is confident that Nvidia will have to increase power consumption even higher.

For now, the RX 6000 line is more power efficient than the GeForce RTX 30, although the difference isn’t huge. Previously, there were rumors that the top-end RX 7900 XT will consume 450 watts versus 600 watts in the case of the RTX 4090, but so far these are just rumors.

Who will release the weakest modern video card GeForce GTX

The GeForce GTX 1630 graphics card may hit the market on June 28th. This was announced by the manufacturer of 3D-maps Colorful.

However, the source says that the date may change, and this is quite likely, given that Nvidia has already postponed the launch of the adapter twice.

The GTX 1630 will be the weakest video card from the current Nvidia line if we are talking about new products. Recall that it is based on the TU117 GPU with 512 CUDA cores, has 4 GB of memory and a 64-bit bus.

The performance of such an adapter will be very modest. Previously, there was evidence that the new product will be slower than the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. This means that it will probably be weaker than the latest Intel Arc A380, which is 5-15% behind the GTX 1650.

So far, there are no special details about the new product. It is only known that the console will receive an 8-core and 16-thread Ryzen 7 6800U (Zen 3+) with a frequency range from 2.7 to 4.7 GHz. Integrated graphics – Radeon 680M architecture RDNA 2. The device will also receive a 7-inch display. Also, judging by the published image, AyaNeo Flip will receive analog sticks and rear triggers.

Note that the company has already announced the release of AyaNeo 2, AyaNeo 2 Geek, AyaNeo Air and AyaNeo Slide. The latest version, by the way, is made in the slider form factor. There, a full-fledged keyboard is hidden under the screen.
