Despite the fact that modern 3D cards have become much cheaper since the beginning of the year, gamers are not in a hurry to upgrade their PCs. Perhaps many are waiting for even greater price cuts (including on the secondary market), but the latest Steam statistics for April are still relentless: the most popular 3D cards among gamers have long been discontinued.
For example, the leader of the rating, the GeForce GTX 1060, was discontinued in 2019. And although her audience has fallen by a percentage in a month, her first place, at least for one month, is hardly in danger. The second-placed GeForce GTX 1650 gained 0.76% over the month – its share increased to 12.54%. In third place is the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, and its share has grown minimally over the month – by 0.18%. However, due to the fact that the GeForce RTX 2060 lost a little more than a percentage of the audience in a month, the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti managed to climb from fourth place to third.
Where are the modern video cards? In the top 10, there is only one such, if we talk about models for desktop PCs. This is the GeForce RTX 3060 in tenth place. Three positions higher is also the GeForce RTX 3060, but already in the laptop version.
14/16″, 2.8K, 13th Gen Intel Core and GeForce RTX 4050. Raytheon T-Book 2023 Laptop Unveiled
Raytheon is about to release a new 2023 T-Book laptop, which will receive modern Intel processors and an Nvidia graphics card.
Raytheon T-Book 2023 will receive a metal case and will be thin, quiet, performance and long battery life. The screen of the new T-Book will have a diagonal of 14 or 16 inches, the resolution will be up to 2.8K at 120 Hz. Among the ports will be added HDMI, which was not in the previous generation.
The older 16-inch model will receive a digital keypad. Laptops will receive Intel Core H or 13th generation processors, and GeFroce RTX 3050 6GB or GeForce RTX 4050 will act as a graphics card.
Raytheon has yet to announce a release date or price for the new T-Book.
ASRock, Gainward, and Inno3D easily outperformed MSI, Asus, and Gigabyte, while Sapphire was among the worst. Statistics of warranty claims for video cards appeared
One of the largest Swiss retailers of computer equipment, Digitec, shared some interesting statistics regarding warranty cases for various devices and various manufacturers.
For example, you can see that for video cards, ASRock, Gainward and Inno3D are the best in this indicator, which is quite curious, given that these are generally brands aimed at the budget conscious buyer. The same MSI score is six times higher than ASRock, and the worst are Sapphire and XFX. At the same time, Sapphire is the best when it comes to the terms of the settlement of warranty obligations: the company copes on average in just three days, many times ahead of its competitors.
In the case of motherboards, firstly, in general, there are more warranty claims, and secondly, MSI and Asus are already the best here.
However, the situation with the timing of the consideration of guarantee applications cannot be projected onto other countries, while the indicators regarding the frequency of these applications can even be kept in mind, regardless of the country.
AMD wants to make Ryzen 7000 motherboards even cheaper. The company will release two versions of the A620 chipset
AMD can prepare not only the budget A620 chipset, but also its even more affordable version.
Resource HKEPC claims that the A620 will be available in two versions. The Promontory 21 version will appear first, and later another version will come out, possibly on Promontory 22. Since Promontory 21 itself is used in more expensive motherboards, it is not well suited for budget models. And the cheaper Promontory 22 will allow manufacturers to produce more affordable boards.
Technically, there should be no difference from the user’s point of view. AMD has previously promised motherboards for the AM5 platform starting at $125, but so far the minimum prices for models based on the B650 chipset start at about $160.
