Revived GeForce RTX 2060 with 12 GB of memory will retail for $ 300? The card must be submitted in January

Published

A GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card with 12 GB of memory, which is expected to be released in January, could cost about $ 300.

The source believes that it is this improved adapter of the last generation that will compete with AMD’s lower-end cards based on GPU Navi 23, because the upcoming desktop GeForce RTX 3050 will allegedly not be able to do this. True, in the near future we will only get a confrontation between the RTX 3060 and the RX 6600, which is approximately equal in features and price. And what and when AMD will release it in a more affordable segment is not yet very clear.

Anyway, the old card will come to the rescue of Nvidia. But the important thing is that those same $ 300 is supposedly the final retail price, and not the recommended value. It is not yet very clear whether it is realistic to achieve such a price in retail at all, but even the RTX 3060 with a recommended price of $ 330 costs at least $ 550-600. That is, the RTX 2060 with 12 GB of memory will be twice as affordable, and in terms of performance, it is inferior to the more recent model by only about 15-20%.

It is also not yet clear if there will be any changes in the RTX 2060 configuration or if everything will be limited to an increased amount of memory. By the way, the original RTX 2060 was introduced just under two years ago with a suggested price of $ 350.

The new Intel processors are likely to be more expensive than their predecessors. There are already prices for two new models in the US

It looks like the new Intel processors will significantly raise the price bar. A large American network MicroCenter has already added a couple of new Alder Lake generation products to its range.

The Core i7-12700K is priced at $ 470, while the top-end Core i9-12900K will cost $ 670. For comparison, the Core i9-11900K has a MSRP of $ 550, and Intel’s flagship model has always cost about the same for many years.

Of course, there hasn’t been an official announcement yet, so we don’t know the recommended prices. But today we have already seen an example from Germany, where the price was also above $ 600.

At the same time, it is hardly worth blaming Intel for such a pricing policy. First, the new CPUs will be much more efficient than their predecessors. And secondly, the same Ryzen 5000 is also not cheap, and it is not yet clear if the Ryzen 9 5950X will be able to withstand in comparison with the new flagship of Intel.

What’s missing in the new MacBook Pros yet? Support for external video cards did not appear here either.

Published

on

As you know, the first Apple laptops on the SoC M1 do not support external video cards. We now know this is true for the new M1 Pro and M1 Max-based MacBook Pros as well.

Despite the presence of Thinderbolt 4 ports, Apple’s new laptops lack support for external graphics cards, and the company has yet to explain this limitation. Perhaps it is primarily due to the Apple Silicon architecture.

Of course, we have already seen that, at least for the M1 Max, using an external video card may be pointless, but we will not mention the M1 Pro and the original M1.

Whether support for external video cards will appear in future Apple laptops with its own platforms is anyone’s guess. It is possible that GPU performance in Apple Silicon will grow at such a rate that discrete adapters will really not be useful in the corresponding bundles.

Recall also that the new MacBook Pro also lacks support for the latest standards for SD memory cards.

Finally, Windows 11 users have the full power of Ryzen processors. Both performance issues have been resolved

Published

AMD and Microsoft have finally resolved both Ryzen and Epyc CPU performance issues when running Windows 11.

Microsoft has already released the patch in the Insider Build, now it’s available to everyone. Recall that it solves the problem of high latency in the L3 cache.

AMD, in turn, has released a patch that solves the problem of UEFI CPPC2 with incorrect work of the task scheduler for processor cores.

In the case of the first patch, you need to install a Windows update, but the second one needs to be downloaded from the AMD website yourself. More precisely, you do not need to download a patch, but a fresh driver for the motherboard chipset – the patch is part of it.
