MSI called the cost of the GeForce RTX 4080 “poor”. Instead, the company recommends GeForce RTX 4070 Ti

The day after the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti went on sale, MSI Gaming’s Twitter page posted the following message: “NVIDIA GeForce 4070 Ti is now on sale in our MSI store! Experience the power of Ada Lovelace architecture at a “not as bad as the 4080” price! Obviously, MSI is not happy with the cost of the GeForce RTX 4080 and recommends gamers to pay attention to the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti instead.

The reason for MSI’s dissatisfaction is probably not the price of the GeForce RTX 4080 per se, but that it is not declining – unlike other models that are gradually becoming cheaper both in the US and in Europe. This is especially true for the Radeon RX 7900 XT.

In turn, the difference in cost between GeForce RTX 4080 and GeForce RTX 4090 is not as big as the difference in performance. Therefore, having the amount sufficient to purchase any of these models, the choice in favor of the older one looks more obvious. All in all, the GeForce RTX 4080 is in its niche, as MSI pointed out in a Twitter post.

Are Intel Arc graphics cards going to be the best value for money now? The company claims to have increased productivity by up to 87%

Are Intel Arc graphics cards going to be the best

Intel has released a fresh graphics driver for Arc video cards, which, as the company itself promises, will increase performance by some incredible values.

Of course, not everywhere, but Intel says that in Full HD performance will increase by up to 77%, in 1440p by 87%, and the average increase for older games with DirectX 9, which Arc cards initially had problems with, should increase by 43%. All these figures are valid for the Arc A750, which Intel has just reduced the price to $250.

The growth that Intel promises is really impressive. Under these conditions, the $250 Arc A750 should be the best-value graphics card in the class, as it competes on price with the GeForce RTX 3050 and Radeon RX 6600, which it could previously beat. However, it is better to wait for various tests and evaluate whether such an impressive performance increase really takes place.

How gigantic will these Intel processors be A comparative photo

We have already seen photos of the LGA7529 socket for the new Intel Xeon server processors, and now it’s time to understand how huge the CPUs themselves will be.

In the comparison photo, you can see the LGA4677 socket for the recently released Sapphire Rapids processors and the much larger LGA7529 for the upcoming Granite Rapids and Sierra Forest CPUs.

According to preliminary calculations, the dimensions of the new CPUs will be about 105 x 70.5 mm, that is, they will be about 70% larger than the current generation, which is rather big in itself. For comparison, the dimensions of the monstrous Epyc Genoa are approximately 72 x 75.4 mm. It is quite possible that the new Intel processors will be the largest on the market at the time of release.

The LGA7529 (Birch Stream-AP) platform is expected next year. As part of the platform, Intel is going to release two lines of completely different processors. The first will be Granite Rapids, which will reportedly contain up to 128 large Redwood Cove + cores, and the second will be Sierra Forest, which will have all small cores, but there will be either 344 or even 528 of them.
