Over the past month, video cards have significantly risen in price, and Radeon cards are now more profitable than GeForce adapters

Published

Unfortunately, the situation on the video card market continues to deteriorate. Prices are rising both due to the continuing deficit and due to the growth of cryptocurrencies, which leads to an increase in interest from miners.

As the source database shows, all video cards have risen in price over the past month, and sometimes significantly.

Radeon RX 6600 Radeon RX 6600 XT RX 6700 XT RX 6800 RX 6800 XT RX 6900 XT RTX 3060 RTX 3060 Ti RTX 3070 RTX 3080 RTX 3090
Minimum price for October 15, EUR 520 600 760 1250 1290 1300 665 740 940 1300 2670
Minimum price today, EUR 600 670 878 1330 1310 1490 725 810 1050 1400 2850

As you can see, absolutely all models have risen in price, although each in its own way. For example, the RX 6800 XT has hardly risen in price, which is why it is now even more affordable than the younger model. Let’s clarify: these are the minimum prices available in the source aggregator in the European market. Unfortunately, the most affordable adapters from Nvidia and AMD have risen in price by about 10%. In terms of price-performance ratio, the RX 6600 XT is now more profitable than the RTX 3060, as it is both slightly faster and slightly cheaper. And the RX 6800 XT will be the most profitable purchase in the high end segment, as it is cheaper than the RX 6800 and RTX 3080. Most impressive is the almost two-fold difference in price between the RX 6900 XT and the RTX 3090.

Nvidia released the $150 GeForce GTX 1630, and it’s weaker than the $140 GTX 1050 Ti six years ago. There are great reviews of new items

Nvidia released the 150 GeForce GTX 1630 and its weaker

Nvidia has introduced the GeForce GTX 1630, which can be called a severely stripped-down version of the GTX 1650. What is a card so primitive by modern standards capable of? Large reviews have already appeared on the Web, and we will take the TechPowerUp material as a basis.

As you can see, in Full HD, and at higher resolutions, such a card does not make sense, the GTX 1630 is very far behind even the Radeon RX 6400. The junior AMD adapter is ahead by almost 60%, and this is an abyss.

If you look at the average performance in games, we are talking about only 24 fps, that is, on average, the new product is not able to provide proper performance in modern games at maximum settings. Unfortunately, there is nothing in the list of source adapters that even roughly matches the GTX 1630. But if you look at older reviews, you can find that the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti at one time lagged behind the GTX 1650 not as much as the GTX 1630 lagged behind That is, the new Nvidia is even a little weaker than the GTX 1050 Ti. Actually, tests from other sources confirm this.

And here it would be useful to remember that the GTX 1050 Ti was introduced in 2016 and was priced at that time at $140. And the GTX 1630 costs $150. That is, Nvidia in 2022 released a video card of about the same level and at about the same price as six years ago.

Of the rest, only power consumption can be noted. In games, the adapter requires only about 50 watts, and the maximum that we managed to achieve from the card is 71 watts.

The official start of sales is in July, at the same time the recommended retail prices will be announced. In the meantime, sellers are asking for Threadripper 5000WX much more than what they asked for their predecessors. Thus, the 64-core Threadripper 5995WX is offered for $7,030, while the official cost of the Threadripper 3995WX is $5,850. The 32-core Threadripper 5975WX is priced at $3,590, while its predecessor, the Threadripper 3975WX, is officially listed at $2,750.

GeForce GTX 1630 is officially presented GTX 1650 at minimum

Nvidia today officially introduced the budget GeForce GTX 1630 video card. Interestingly, as in the case of the new Intel Arc A380, sales started in China – there the GeForce GTX 1630 can be purchased for 1000-1100 yuan, which is approximately $ 150 (including VAT). Similar money is asked in China for the Radeon RX 6400 and, in fact, the same Intel Arc A380.

Inno3D was one of the first to introduce its versions of the GeForce GTX 1630

The GeForce GTX 1630 is as close as possible to its older sister: it has the same TDP level (75 W), the same cooling system, the same architecture and the same printed circuit board. The only difference is that the GeForce GTX 1630 has a narrower memory bus (64 bits vs. 128, so the memory bandwidth is significantly less – 96 GB / s vs. 192 GB / s) and fewer CUDA cores – 512 instead of 896. If we talk Regarding the marking of GPUs, the GeForce GTX 1630 uses TU117-150, and the GTX 1650 uses TU117-300. The GPU frequency of the novelty was 1785 MHz, the amount of GDDR6 memory is 4 GB.

It is expected that the GeForce GTX 1630 will be even slower than the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, released, for a moment, six years ago. Why Nvidia decided to release the GeForce GTX 1630 right now, when the cost of video cards has simply collapsed, is a big question. However, the wider the range, the better for users. There is no data yet on how much the GeForce GTX 1630 will cost in other regions.

One of the first companies to introduce the GeForce GTX 1630 was Inno3D. The company introduced the new product in two versions – overclocked Twin X2 OC with two fans and Compact – with one fan and standard frequencies.
