Intel, and already not so bad. A fresh test of the Arc A380 graphics card in a huge number of games showed how serious the compatibility problems are

Our colleagues from the PC Games Hardware resource decided to test the Intel Arc A380 video card, but not in terms of performance, but in terms of compatibility. Moreover, as many as 50 games that were released between 1999 and 2022 were taken. That is, the review turned out to be large-scale, diverse and informative.

As a result, out of 50 games, 36 worked without any problems. Five more projects had some nuances, such as the Vulkan API not working or problems in the menu, but in general they also worked without problems.

Three more games had minor problems: freezes at the beginning of the game, problems with fonts, and the inability to work at resolutions higher than 720p. Five projects already had problems at the texture or artifact level, and one game (Max Payne 2) did not launch at all.

Unfortunately, the source did not do the same research until the release of the latest driver, with which Intel fixed many problems, so it is not yet possible to understand how much better it has become. But in general, the situation does not look catastrophic, as at the start of sales, when many media outlets talked about a large number of games that had serious problems.

The Radeon RX 6800 XT can be made as fast as the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. RMP application introduced

The Radeon RX 6800 XT can be made as fast

The GeForce RTX 40 graphics cards are already presented and will soon begin to hit the market, and the Radeon RX 7000 will also be released towards the end of the year. But is it worth buying new ones if you can get by with the RX 6000 line, significantly speeding it up?

The Radeon RX 6800 XT can be made as fast as the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.  RMP application introduced

Renowned developer and enthusiast Yuri Bubliy (1usmus) created the Radeon Monster Profile (RMP) application, which allows you to significantly increase the performance of current generation AMD adapters. From the name it is clear that in fact we are talking about overclocking profiles, but not everything is so simple. The author describes his brainchild as a combination of unique settings and voltage parameters. Thanks to RMP, the performance of RX 6000 cards can be significantly improved.

As you can see, for example, Yuri took the RX 6800 XT, the core frequency of which, thanks to the settings, increased by 300 MHz, which provides an increase of 11-13% and allows this card to bypass the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti at least in 3DMark, which even now is almost twice as expensive. At the same time, the profiles are designed in such a way that the operating voltage is reduced by 6%, which allows you not to worry about excessive heating.

The application is expected later this year.

Thanks Ethereum Video cards have fallen in price

After the release of the update for Ethereum, the demand for powerful video cards fell sharply. According to game-news24, if until recently video cards of the GeForce RTX 30 family could be sold two to three times more than the recommended price, now prices have dropped sharply, in some cases even below the recommended ones.

Thanks Ethereum.  Video cards have fallen in price

The GeForce RTX 3080, which recently sold for $1,140, ​​is now around $700, but it’s not so easy to find those willing to buy graphics cards now. Previously, miners came to stores with a lot of money and took away all available video cards, but now neither new computers nor video cards are bought.

Miners who decide to sell video cards bought for a year or more are forced to lose money. Sellers expect even more video cards from miners to appear on the market in the near future. Perhaps this will lead to an even greater drop in prices.

A new generation of graphics cards is expected to be released in the coming weeks, boosting demand for older cards. The GeForce RTX 40 will be available on October 12th. The Radeon RX 7000 will go on sale in early November.

Of course, we are not talking about mass sales around the world. The Gigabyte card has been acquired by at least one user in Hong Kong. Unfortunately, neither the seller, nor the price, nor additional details of the transaction are known.

But on the other hand, we can see the card itself in live photos, and at the same time once again make sure how huge the new Nvidia product is.

Unfortunately, you should not expect any test results from the happy owner, since Nvidia has not yet released the required driver. It will become available to everyone only on October 12, when official sales start.
