In China, miners have started a large-scale sale of video cards. GeForce RTX 3060 is offered for $ 270

Various media outlets record the global sale of video cards by miners in China. Some are in such a hurry to get rid of the equipment that they do not even disassemble the farms – they sell them entirely.

The enthusiasm of miners in China has greatly diminished after the country’s authorities made the mining of cryptocurrency illegal. And now the creators of Ethereum are preparing for the implementation of London – the next network upgrade, the essence of which boils down to the transition from Proof-of-Work consensus to Proof-of-Stake: miners and the computing power they generate will no longer be needed to maintain the network. Consequently, after the introduction of London, scheduled for August 4, most of the crypto-mining equipment is at risk of being unclaimed, so miners are in a hurry to get rid of the video cards right now. And naturally, this situation is accompanied by a strong decline in prices.

Large trading platforms in the Middle Kingdom – Taobao, Bangood, Alibaba and Aliexpress – are inundated with used video cards. For example, the GeForce RTX 3060 can be purchased now for $ 270. At the same time, many laptops with GeForce RTX 3060 went on sale – the same ones that miners bought in hundreds at the beginning of the year, when there were simply no “live” video cards in stores. These laptops are now priced at around $ 1,000 apiece, but prices are likely to drop further. The rest of the Ampere line also dropped significantly in price: if at the peak of demand for the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti they asked for about $ 1,300, now such a video card in China can actually be purchased for the equivalent of $ 370. The GeForce RTX 3070, which has risen in price to $ 1400-1500, can now be bought for $ 500. Of course, all these video cards have done a lot of work for the miners, but some of them are clearly not even half a year old, and under normal temperature conditions, even when working 24/7, they can turn out to be a hassle-free and rather profitable purchase.

It’s no secret that Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4090 graphics cards need powerful power supplies, but official recommendations from Nvidia partners vary.

Some manufacturers follow Nvidia’s recommendations for a standard 850W PSU, but many manufacturers list 1000W PSUs as recommended, some even insist on a 1200W PSU.

Asus recommends a 1000W PSU for its ROG Strix graphics card. Asus suggests this because the company assumes that users will be overclocking both the CPU and the GPU. The Gigabyte Aorus Master and Zotac AMP Extreme/Trinity RTX 4090 graphics cards have the same power supply recommendation of 1000W.

MSI, PNY, Galax, and Inno3D recommend an 850W PSU. However, Palit recommends using up to 1200W power supply for its RTX 4090 GameRock graphics card, which is the most stringent requirement among graphics card manufacturers today.

Today we already wrote that the GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card can consume more than 600 watts without any extreme overclocking. And when using the most powerful processors and overclocking, the power of the entire system will be much higher.

The first example that the GeForce RTX 4090 can consume over 600 watts. Card tested at Furmark

The first example that the GeForce RTX 4090 can consume

The GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card can indeed draw over 600W without any extreme overclocking.

The first example that the GeForce RTX 4090 can consume over 600 watts.  Card tested at Furmark

The results of testing new items in Furmark have already appeared on the Web. In the msi-01 base test, the GPU frequency reached 3 GHz, and the power consumption was 426 W, but in the notorious Donut test, the frequency, although significantly lower (2.64 GHz), consumed the card almost 616 W! This test loads 3D cards much more heavily, which, as we can see, has a noticeable effect on power consumption.

In this case, the tests were carried out with a liquid cooler and, judging by the core frequency, in overclocking. Of course, without overclocking and in games, the consumption of the RTX 4090 will never reach what we see in the Donut test, but at the same time, such results mean that this is far from the limit for the adapter, and consumption during extreme overclocking can only be imagined .

Will the GeForce RTX 5090 and Radeon RX 8950 XT have such memory? Samsung to produce 36GHz GDDR7 memory

Will the GeForce RTX 5090 and Radeon RX 8950 XT

Samsung at the Samsung Tech Day 2022 event talked about the achievements and plans for its semiconductor business, at the same time touching on the topic of GDDR7 memory for future generations of video cards.

Will the GeForce RTX 5090 and Radeon RX 8950 XT have such memory?  Samsung to produce 36GHz GDDR7 memory

There are practically no details yet, we do not know when such memory will appear on the market, but Samsung indicated its frequency – 36 GHz!

Recall that GDDR6X memory currently runs at 21 GHz in some 3D cards. Of course, in all these cases we are talking about the effective frequency, but this applies to any such memory.

If we talk about top-end graphics cards with 384-bit bus, 36 GHz memory will provide 1.7 GB / s bandwidth! Probably, this will significantly speed up the new generation of 3D maps, even without taking into account new GPUs.
