Intel promises that the top-end Arc graphics cards will be introduced and hit the market very soon. But when exactly, he does not specify.
We are talking about models Arc A750 and A770. The company itself claims that the older model in terms of performance will be between the GeForce RTX 3060 and RTX 3060 Ti, which is fully consistent with the very first rumors and leaks from last year. In addition, Intel says that in terms of performance with active ray tracing effects, the A770 will be able to compete with the RTX 3070.
Arc A770 will be available on the market in two versions: with 8 and 16 GB of memory. The Arc A750 will always have 8GB of storage.
As for the launch, although it will take place very soon, the cards will only be available in certain countries and in limited quantities. But at least Germany is one of these countries. By the way, Intel admitted that launching the Arc A380 initially only in China was a bad idea and did not work at all.
How the current generation Arc cards will compete with the new Nvidia and AMD adapters, which will also enter the market soon, Intel does not comment.
Lenovo is preparing a gaming laptop of the IdeaPad Gaming line, which, firstly, does not work under Windows, and secondly, does not have a discrete graphics card.
The full name of the novelty is the IdeaPad Gaming Chromebook, and here it is already clear that Chrome OS acts as the OS. But the operating system here is just one of the oddities of this gaming laptop. The second, as already mentioned, is the lack of a discrete graphics card. What’s more, it’s not just some Ryzen 7 6800U, whose iGPU is so powerful that such a laptop could hardly be called a gaming laptop. Instead, Intel processors serve as the heart here: Core i3-1215U or Core i5-1235U. Recall that their graphics cores are very modest in their capabilities, so you don’t even have to think about some modern demanding games. Moreover, the laptop also has a screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, which creates an additional load on the GPU.
As a result, it is completely unclear why the laptop is gaming, but here even the design is the same as in other Lenovo gaming models.
As for the rest of the parameters, the novelty is equipped with a 120-Hz IPS screen with a diagonal of 16 inches, a 512 GB SSD, 8 GB of RAM, a pair of USB-C ports, a pair of USB-A, microSD, Wi-Fi 6 and an aluminum cover.
Price data is not yet available.
The real cost of the GeForce RTX 4090 in the US has become known. At least MSI and Asus have prepared options for the recommended $1600
Sales of the GeForce RTX 4090 will not start soon, but sellers are already ready to offer users the latest video cards. In particular, on the American platform Newegg there are already about a dozen models from MIS, Gigabyte and Asus with prices.
Apparently, in the US it will really be possible to buy a GeForce RTX 4090 for the recommended $ 1,600, MSI and Asus have such options. Moreover, MSI has a version of the GeForce RTX 4090 and is not much more expensive – for $ 1650. What’s more, the same company has an all-in-one liquid cooling option for $1,750. Given the TDP of the GeForce RTX 4090, this option may be in high demand, as it should be more efficient than a regular air one.
It is also interesting that the cost of the most expensive option – Asus ROG – does not exceed $ 2,000. However, these are prices in the USA, and in Europe the story is different.
The GeForce RTX 4090 will not repeat the fate of the RTX 3090 and will be available at a recommended price from the first days. The cards are already lit up in European stores
The GeForce RTX 4090 will go on sale on October 12, but the cards are already in stock in stores in Europe. At least in the Proshop chain, which is one of the largest in the region.
Prices for the new Nvidia flagship start at 2,000 euros. Recall that in the US the card is valued at $ 1,600, but this is without taxes. But the above European price is not a result of the seller’s greed, as the recommended price of the RTX 4090 for Europe is 1950 euros.
Liquid-cooled models can be bought for 2300-2400 euros, and the most expensive are Asus Strix cards with a price of 2530 euros.
The Proshop network does not even offer to place a pre-order yet, but now you can be sure that the prices will be at the recommended level, except that the recommended price for Europe is very high in itself.
