Nothing personal, just business. Rumor has it that Nvidia has ramped up production of the Hopper H100 GPU at the expense of the GeForce RTX 4090 due to the fact that Hopper earnings are much higher
At first, before the premiere of the GeForce RTX 4090, insiders said that Nvidia had prepared a large stock of these 3D accelerators and that there were enough graphics cards for everyone. Now it is quite obvious that the GeForce RTX 4090 is in great short supply. And not only in Asia, but also in the US market, which traditionally receives special attention. Why did it happen so?
The Chinese resource MyDrivers writes that the reason for this is the shift in Nvidia’s production emphasis. Simply put, the company gave away part of the production lines on which the GeForce RTX 4090 was assembled to assemble the Hopper H100 professional GPUs.
The point here, alas, is the American sanctions. First, the US effectively banned the sale of high-performance Nvidia and AMD data center graphics processors to China (explaining that they leveled the technological advantage of the US in a potential war with China), and now TSMC, obeying US sanctions, is ceasing production of the Biren BR100, the most powerful Chinese general purpose graphics processor. As a result, the cost of the Hopper H100 in China soared from $11,000 to $33,000! And the SXM version is even more expensive. In fact, it’s harder to find.
For ordinary users, this situation turns into not only a shortage of the GeForce RTX 4090, but also an increase in the cost of a 3D card. In Asia, the overpayment for a novelty reaches almost $ 1,500, but things are no better in the USA either. The source notes that the price situation will only get worse: the GeForce RTX 4090 will rise in price until the end of the year.
Radeon RX 7900 XT and XTX vs. GeForce RTX 4080. AMD Unboxing Photos Revealed
The Radeon RX 7900 graphics cards will be released on December 13, and reviews will be published on the same day. But thematic resources were allowed to share the unpacking today.
Despite the fact that the RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT are as similar as possible on the outside, they are still not identical. The older model has a length of 287 mm and weighs 1.8 kg, while the younger one, with a mass of 1.5 kg, is characterized by a length of 267 mm. By the standards of modern Nvidia flagships, these are very compact solutions. In addition, they occupy only 2.5 expansion slots instead of three or four for the new GeForce RTX 40 products. Actually, the general photo clearly shows how much smaller AMD new products are.
Of the less significant, we can note two power connectors (8 + 8), an air temperature sensor immediately behind the fan, as well as the same three red stripes on the radiator. It turns out that they symbolize the third generation of cards based on the RDNA architecture.
Recall that we have some comparisons of new products from AMD and Nvidia, but so far, unfortunately, not in games.
The $900 Radeon RX 7900 XT outperforms the $1,200 GeForce RTX 4080. But only in one test.
Following the older sister, the Radeon RX 7900 XT also appeared in the Geekbench database, which will be sold at a price of $ 900.
Now we have the results of both new AMD products in the same tests. And if cards from different manufacturers in such benchmarks can only be compared conditionally, then a comparison of cards from the same line is more revealing.
So, the RX 7900 XT scores about 205,600 points in OpenCL, and the result in Vulkan is about 162,200 points.
In the first case, this is exactly the level of the GeForce RTX 3090, in the second, the new AMD is confidently ahead of the more expensive RTX 4080 by $ 300.
If we talk about comparing the RX 7900 XT and XTX, the second one is about 10% faster. Actually, the price difference between them is almost the same, so the cards should be very close in terms of their profitability.
Recall that the price of the RX 7900 XT, according to available data, will compete with the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti. New AMD cards will be released on December 13th.
Not able to fully bypass the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, the RTX 4070 Ti graphics card will cost $ 900
It looks like the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti graphics card that came out of the rebranded RTX 4080 12GB will cost $900.
It is reported that this price has already been named to Nvidia partners. If the new product really costs $ 900, the RTX 4080 will not be able to get much cheaper. Recall, there are rumors that Nvidia will reduce the price of this adapter, but the card costs $1,200. Considering $900 for the RTX 4070 Ti, perhaps the RTX 4080 will drop in price by just $100. However, this is still just a rumour.
It’s also worth pointing out that if you’re looking solely at performance in TFLOPS, as it’s already known for the new card, the RTX 4070 Ti will outperform its older sister, offering 0.04459 TFLOPS per dollar versus 0.04065 TFLOPS per dollar for the RTX 4080. In comparison, the RTX 4090 scores as high as 0.05165.
In terms of actual performance, according to Nvidia’s own slides, the new product will perform on par with the RTX 3090 Ti or slightly weaker, but will outperform the latter when DLSS is activated.
As a reminder, new AMD graphics cards are also entering the market on December 13, and the RTX 4070 Ti will be a direct competitor for the Radeon RX 7900 XT.
