The first GeForce RTX 30 for less than $ 300, also with 12 GB of memory. There are details about the desktop GeForce RTX 3050 Ti

Nvidia has released mobile GeForce RTX 3050 graphics cards for quite some time, but there are no desktop versions yet. This despite the fact that in January we are expecting a lot of new cards of the RTX 30 line, but all of them will be significantly more expensive.

According to the new data, the desktop model RTX 3050 Ti will receive a GPU GA106-150-A1 with 3072 active CUDA cores. This is the same GPU that powers the GeForce RTX 3060. The mobile RTX 3050 Ti is powered by the GA107 GPU with 2560 CUDA cores.

Also, the desktop novelty can have either 6 GB of memory or 12 GB. In this case, the bus is likely to be 192-bit. The desktop GTX 3050 should get 4 or 8 GB of memory and a 128-bit bus.

The source is the insider kopite7kimi, who very often shares information about video cards. He was the first to reveal the characteristics of the older RTX 30 cards long before the announcement. But in this case, he notes that the data regarding the RTX 3050 Ti is a rumor, so this should be borne in mind.

Unfortunately, it’s unclear when the lower-end Ampere desktop adapters will come out at all. Perhaps their delay is due to a shortage of chips, and it is still more profitable for Nvidia to produce GPUs for more expensive solutions. However, AMD has nothing new in this segment either. The upcoming Radeon RX 6600 will be a direct competitor to the RTX 3060. In terms of pricing, there have been rumors of $ 250-270 for the RTX 3050 Ti, which makes sense considering the RTX 3060’s MSRP is $ 330.

There are data on the performance of the mobile processor Intel Core i9-12900HK

A screenshot of a closed laptop test on a 12th generation Intel Core processor has appeared on the network. This is the Core i9-12900HK processor, which will presumably lead the Alder Lake-P lineup. Its configuration includes 14 cores, which are capable of executing up to 20 threads simultaneously. The base frequency of the Core i9-12900H processor is 2.9 GHz.

The processor has the highest performance of any known mobile processor released this year, including Intel Tiger Lake-H45, AMD Zen3 Mobile, and even the Apple M1 Max. Intel’s Alder Lake-P mobile processor series is expected to be unveiled alongside Arc Alchemist graphics cards, possibly at CES 2022.

Intel Core i5-12600K is much faster than the Core i9-11900K in the CPU-Z test and 46.7% faster than the Ryzen 5 5600X

New data on the Intel Core i5-12600K processor of the Alder Lake family has appeared on the web. The CPU was tested in the CPU-Z benchmark in two states: standard and overclocked. And even at nominal frequencies, this processor turned out to be faster than the top model of the Rocket Lake-S line – Core i9-11900K.

The unclocked Core i5-12600K scores 746 points in a single-threaded test and 7058 points in a multi-threaded one. The overclocked performance is, of course, even higher – about 790 and 7200 points, respectively. It turns out that even in the base, the Core i5-12600K is faster than the current flagship Core i9-11900K – it has 682 and 6563 points, respectively.

Also, the Core i5-12600K is much faster than the Ryzen 5 5600X – by 19.5% in a single-threaded test and by 46.7% in a multi-threaded one. However, this raises the question – why is the 10-core Intel CPU compared to the 6-core AMD CPU? Nevertheless, such a comparison is quite acceptable, because, according to preliminary data, the cost of the Core i5-12600K will be at the level of the Ryzen 5 5600X. And this is where AMD and its most popular Ryzen 5000 processor line can be hit hard.

The most powerful Nvidia graphics card for mining turned out to be significantly more expensive than the GeForce RTX 3090. Nvidia CMP 170HX with a performance of 164 MH / s went on sale

We have already written today about the most efficient Nvidia video card for mining, and now we are talking about the most powerful Nvidia video card for mining cryptocurrencies – CMP 170HX. Rumors about this model have been around for a long time, the characteristics are known, but now it is on sale and, finally, the price has become known.

The Nvidia CMP 170HX has appeared in the Vipera online store catalog and is being offered for an impressive $ 4,300. And we are not talking about single sales – there are about 230 video cards in stock.

Despite the high cost, the CMP 170HX definitely makes sense. Firstly, the video card provides a large hash rate – 164 MH / s. Even the GeForce RTX 3090 is not capable of this. This is due to the fact that the CMP 170HX has 8 GB of HBM2e memory at 1458 MHz with a 4096-bit bus. The memory bandwidth is 1.493 TB / s. Secondly, power consumption is lower than that of the same GeForce RTX 3090 – TDP is 250 W (additional power is supplied through one eight-pin connector). So the CMP 170HX is more efficient at mining than the RTX 3090, but it also costs about $ 1,000 more.

The CMP 170HX does not have video outputs and is not intended for gaming, but miners are not interested in the game. But the fact that the video card is accompanied by a 1 year warranty is interesting. It was previously stated that Nvidia CMP 3D cards have a limited warranty of only three months. But here either an exception was made for the CMP 170HX, or Nvidia revised its warranty policy, or the seller assumes an additional 9 months of warranty. In any case, a year of warranty for a purely mining video card, which will definitely overclock and work at the same time in 24/7 mode, is strong.
