After the major cryptocurrencies collapsed, the obviously overheated cost of video cards went down. The decline in prices is recorded almost everywhere, and in China, the most active mining region, too.
As a source writes with reference to the owner of a local computer store, recently the cost of many models has dropped significantly. So, the price of the GeForce RTX 3080 reached 18,000 yuan ($ 2,800), and now it is “only” $ 1,900. The cost of the GeForce RTX 3070 has also decreased: it was 10,000 yuan (1550 dollars), it became 7,500 yuan (1160 dollars). At the same time, fewer cryptocurrency miners turn to the store, and the assortment and warehouse stocks have increased.
However, one should not count on a further drop in prices: the deficit of components has not disappeared anywhere, and further stabilization is possible only after it is completely eliminated. That is, only by the end of the year.
Rumor: Nvidia Stops Production of GeForce RTX 3080 GPUs After GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Drops in Price
A steep rise in the value of major cryptocurrencies triggered a cascade of events that resulted in the collapse of prices for new video cards. Many models have fallen in price, including top ones like the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti: with a recommended price of $1,200 (in the US), it is offered by the largest American retailers, Newegg and Amazon, for less than $1,000.
A small price gap between the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and the GeForce RTX 3080 with 12GB of memory has led Nvidia to suspend shipments of GPUs to partners for the latter. So wrote one of the Twitter users familiar with the situation. It is impossible to confirm or refute these words, but in general such a development of events can be considered quite probable.
Up to 8 XE cores and 6 GB of memory: the first information about the Intel Arc Pro A50/A40 graphics cards appeared
The database of the SiSoftware Sandra test package has fresh data on the upcoming Arc A40 Pro and Arc A50 Pro graphics cards. These are graphics accelerators for workstations that are designed for engineering tasks.
The A50 Pro has a full ACM-G11 GPU with 8 Xe cores (128 execution units/1024 FP32 cores), while the A40 Pro is likely to get a stripped-down version of the chip. The clock frequency is 2.45 GHz.
Both cards have 6 GB GDDR6 memory, indicating a 96-bit memory bus. In this regard, both models are similar to the Arc A380 mobile card, which has almost the same configuration.
Thus, the company continues to prepare its entry-level products. When high-performance gaming and professional solutions based on the ACM-G10 GPU will appear, it is not reported. It is also not yet clear whether the Arc A40 Pro and Arc A50 Pro cards will be available in retail or whether they will appear only as part of workstations.
Earlier, Intel introduced its first gaming graphics card for $150.
