Nvidia graphics cards will get even smaller? Nvidia may have limited the production of GPU Ampere to artificially increase the scarcity

Published

on

The situation with video cards is not getting better, and in the near future, at least in relation to Nvidia cards, it may become even worse.

The source claims that the company intends to cut shipments of the Ampere GPU and possibly even temporarily suspend production. At least in the current quarter, we should expect smaller deliveries of video cards compared to the previous one. Numerous sources indicate that this is planned and intentional, and not related to logistical issues or price disputes for Samsung products.

The reasons for this behavior of Nvidia may lie in the desire to spoil the announcement of Intel Arc graphics cards, which is scheduled for early 2022. Recall that Nvidia should have an announcement of GeForce RTX Super video cards and simply updated models at about the same time, but now sources say that the upcoming event may be more than just the announcement of updated 3D maps. True, what else this may be is unclear, because for the RTX 40 line it is still very much the same. In any case, Nvidia wants to strengthen its position against the background of Intel’s announcement, and the additional GPU stock may come in handy so that at the beginning of next year, GeForce graphics cards are simply more affordable in retail.

The source also believes that Nvidia will thus create an artificial deficit during the fourth quarter and will be able to make money on it. The essence of the idea here is that Nvidia allegedly realized that if it continues to produce GPUs at the current pace, then by the second quarter of 2022 there will be a collapse in prices, and the company simply does not want this to happen. Nvidia allegedly decided it made sense to stop production soon or hoard cards, make “enough” money to make profits this year, and then justify higher prices to make significantly more money next year. With the release of a new generation.

The $ 2,000 RTX 4090 will sell well, even if it’s worse than the $ 2,000 RX 7950 XT. But that $ 2,000 for the RTX 4090 won’t be accepted by the market if the RTX 3090’s price is lower than the suggested price ($ 1,499) early next year. So Nvidia plans to prevent this from happening.

That being said, there is some good news. AMD is allegedly going to ramp up GPU production for entry-level and mid-range desktop graphics cards over the coming quarters.

The cooling system for Palit GeForce RTX 2060 Dual series graphics cards with 12 GB of memory includes two 90 mm fans

Published

Palit Microsystems, which calls itself the largest partner of Nvidia in the production of video cards, introduced the GeForce RTX 2060 Dual and GeForce RTX 2060 Dual OC models with 12 GB of memory. As you know, these are improved versions of the well-known model built on the Nvidia Turing architecture. They differ from the original version in the increased number of CUDA cores and doubled the amount of memory. The cards support Nvidia DLSS, Nvidia Reflex, real-time ray tracing and many other modern technologies. Contrary to the letters of the OS in the name, usually indicating factory overclocking, in both cases the base frequency is 1470 MHz, the increased one is 1650 MHz. GDDR6 memory communicates with the GPU over a 192-bit bus, transferring data on each line at 14 Gbps.

The Turing graphics architecture at the heart of the GeForce RTX 2060 is still modern as it offers full DirectX 12 Ultimate support. The GPU configuration includes 2,176 CUDA cores, 34 RT cores, and 272 Tensor cores. The GDDR6 memory is connected to a 192-bit bus.

As for the Zotac board, this is a fairly simple and compact model with a cooling system that includes an aluminum heatsink and a couple of fans. The card is powered by a single 8-pin PCIe power connector. No pricing information yet.

There is confusion in the ranks of the new Intel CPUs: the processor with fewer cores is older than the model with more cores. It’s all about the cores themselves

Published

The heterogeneous structure of Intel processors, when there are fast large and small energy efficient cores, in theory can lead to situations where a processor with fewer cores will be better than a model with a larger one. Judging by the latest data, this situation will take place in Intel’s lineup.

The specifications of the mobile CPU Core i5-12650H show that it has fewer cores than the younger Core i5-12500H. But at the same time, the Core i5-12650H received its number for a reason.

Yes, it has 10 cores versus 12 cores for the younger model. But the ratio is important. While the Core i5-12500H has 4 large cores and 8 small cores, the Core i5-12650H has 6 large and 4 small cores. And for most, if not all, this configuration will be faster.

Judging by what we now know about future Alder Lake, there will be no such confusion in the desktop segment, but still we need to wait for the official announcement of all these processors, which will take place early next year.
