The canceled GeForce RTX 4080 12GB was tested in 3D Mark. Performance on par with the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti

A week ago, Nvidia sensationally canceled the release of the GeForce RTX 4080 with 12 GB of memory, but this does not mean at all that insiders or enthusiasts could not get access to this 3D card. Thanks to this, in fact, we have the opportunity to evaluate the performance of the canceled model.

The data was published by one of the users of the large Chinese ChipHell forum, which often becomes a source of details about unreleased devices. Remarkably, this same user previously leaked performance data on the GeForce RTX 4080 with 16 GB of memory.

Judging by the screenshots, the GeForce RTX 4080 GPU with 16 GB is represented by 60 computing units and operates at a frequency of 2.61 GHz. Performance on operations with single precision – 42 TFLOPs. In 3D Mark Time Spy Extreme, the video card earned 10,794 points, in Fire Strike Ultra – 13,472 points. This is the level of the flagship of the Ampere line – GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. If we compare performance with the GeForce RTX 4090, then Nvidia’s latest flagship is about twice as fast.

Why are these tests important? Rumor has it that the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB will be released, but under a different designation and with slightly revised parameters. Actually, canceling its release, Nvidia indicated the “wrong name” as the reason. In other words, there is a great chance to see this video card on the store shelf under the designation GeForce RTX 3070 Ti or GeForce RTX 3070. But we already know what it will be capable of.

Phison 8 TB SSD will be sent to the moon

The manufacturer Phison announced that it is participating in a project to create data centers on the moon. This mission is carried out by Lonestar, SkyCorp and Canonical. The launch of this data center is planned for the second half of 2023.

Phison 8 TB SSD will be sent to the moon next year - there will be a data center

According to the company, their 8TB M.2 2280 NVMe drive has passed NASA Technology Readiness Level 6 (TRL-6) testing, which confirms its performance and can be used in space, at low temperatures and in vacuum.

Initially, we are talking about one server. Its storage module will be the size of a book. It will be equipped with SoC on the RISC-V architecture, and the power will come from solar panels. The server will deliver the NOVA-C lander, which is being developed by Intuitive Machines, to the Moon.

Note that this is not the first space mission involving Phison. Earlier, her 8 GB drive was installed in the Perseverance Martian rover. Also on board the ISS is used from a 4 TB SSD.

Earlier it was reported that the European Union wants to place data centers in space.

Not as thick as new Nvidia graphics cards Non Reference XFX

XFX will offer non-reference 3D cards of the Radeon RX 7000 line. Images of the RX 7900 XT Merc 310 model have already appeared on the Web, but we can safely assume that there will also be a similar-looking RX 7900 XTX Merc 310.

The card is made in the usual XFX design. It is very long, but not the thickest by modern standards. It will probably take up less than three expansion slots.

You can also highlight three power connectors (8 + 8 + 8) and the absence of a USB-C port, which is available on new generation AMD reference adapters.

Recall that the RX 7900 will be launched on December 13th. On the same day, reviews of new AMD products will be published. If the new 3D cards prove to be very successful for their prices, Nvidia can reduce the price of the GeForce RTX 4080, because it is 20% more expensive than the top RX 7900 XTX.

Intel graphics cards are drastically faster in some older games

Intel Arc graphics cards, among other things, have rather mediocre performance in older games. But today the company has released a fresh driver that significantly changes the situation, although not in all games.

Intel graphics cards are drastically faster in some older games.  Intel has worked on support for DirectX 9

The company has worked on optimization for some specific games, adding native support for DirectX 9. In particular, it is important to note Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, in which the performance of Arc adapters increased by almost 80%. The company has also worked on the 1% percentile, increasing the rate by up to 2.3 times, which should make the gameplay smoother.

Not all old games have received an impressive performance boost, but Intel can still be commended for continuing to work on its accelerators.
