Jeep Wrangler Magneto – electric SUV with manual transmission and transfer case

Published

on

Jeep has unveiled the Wrangler Magneto SUV concept, which combines an electric powertrain with a manual transmission.

It sounds strange, but in fact, the car as a whole is quite unusual. Externally, this is actually a regular Wrangler Rubicon, which is known for its off-road capabilities. It is simply impossible to preserve these very possibilities with the classic placement of electric motors on the axles, so Jeep took a different path.

In the Wrangler Magneto, the electric motor is located in the place of the internal combustion engine, that is, under the hood. It powers the conventional, albeit modified, Wrangler transmission, combining a six-speed manual transmission and a two-speed transfer case.

To keep the powertrain familiar from petrol versions, Jeep engineers also had to tune the electric motor to match the original 3.6-liter V6. As a result, the electric power plant produces 285 hp. and 370 Nm of torque, and the power and torque curves differ only slightly. At the same time, of course, the kickdown allows you to get everything at once, thanks to which the car accelerates to 96 km / h in 6.8 seconds.

The car has four battery packs. One is located in the place of the fuel tank, the other is installed across the frame, the third is nestled in the upper part of the engine, and the fourth is installed in the rear compartment for things. The total capacity is 70 kWh. As a result, the car, which was already difficult in the original, weighs 2.6 tons.

Now the Wrangler Magneto is going to be tested in difficult conditions. As already mentioned, while this is a concept, but it may well turn into a production car.

The performance is 41 MH / s with a consumption of only 66 watts. Nvidia RTX A2000 GPU Shows Mining Efficiency Wonders

Judging by new details that have appeared on the Web, the most affordable Nvidia Ampere graphics card for workstations, the RTX A2000, is perhaps the most efficient 3D accelerator for mining cryptocurrencies, in particular Ethereum.

The Nvidia RTX A2000 is built on a GA106 GPU with 3328 CUDA cores and has 6GB of GDDR6 memory connected to the GPU using a 192-bit bus. Since the TDP is only 70W, the device does not require additional power. It also takes up little space inside the case (or a conventional rig), and only one centrifugal fan is used for cooling.

The performance is 41 MH / s with a consumption of only 66 watts. Nvidia RTX A2000 GPU Shows Mining Efficiency Wonders

In general, in terms of design and appearance, you cannot say that the RTX A2000 is great for mining, and yet three such video cards can replace one GeForce RTX 3090, while they will consume less. Optimized for mining RTX A2000 (core frequency raised by 100 MHz, memory – by 1500 MHz) produces 41 MH / s with a consumption of only 66 watts. With a Power Limit of 95% and a fan running at 100%, heating is only 51 ° C.

Nvidia RTX A2000 should go on sale in December, but after such a positive test in mining it will be difficult to buy it – the video card will clearly interest many cryptocurrency miners.

The top discrete Intel Arc graphics card will cost about $ 800, the cost of the model is simpler – about $ 650

The premiere of discrete Intel Arc graphics cards based on the Xe-HPG architecture is expected in the first quarter of next year. There are no comprehensive official details yet, but the company has already given a good price guideline by publishing the conditions of a certain competition, in which two models of Intel Arc 3D cards – Premium and Performance – are the prizes.

A total of 100 prizes will be awarded with Premium graphics cards equivalent to $ 900 each and 200 prizes with Performance graphics cards worth $ 700 each. The price is for a set, which, in addition to the video card itself, includes a subscription to the Xbox Game Pass service for three or six months, as well as branded merchandise.

Subtracting the subscription and merchandise costs from the prize, the Arc Premium 3D card will cost around $ 825 and the Performance 3D card around $ 650. A lot, considering that we are talking, in fact, about the cost price. Given the current deficit, the price can be safely multiplied by one and a half, if we talk about retail. And it turns out that on the store shelf there will not be much difference in price between the same Arc Premium, GeForce RTX 3070 (Ti) and Radeon RX 6700 XT – it is with these models from Nvidia and AMD that the novelty will compete. So what will make users buy an Intel device instead of Nvidia or AMD at roughly the same cost and performance? While this is a big question.
