The first top-end Nvidia Ampere graphics card you can actually buy? GeForce RTX 3080 Ti received hardware and software protection from mining

Published

The day before yesterday we wrote that Nvidia is going to transfer the budget GeForce RTX 3060 video card to the new GA106-302 GPU – it will implement hardware measures to limit mining, which, together with software, should make the video card completely unprofitable for use by cryptocurrency miners. And, according to the source, the same has already been done for the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti.

This model also uses a different GPU – GA102-202 / 302 instead of GA102-200. The mass production of this GPU has already begun, and the appearance of the serial GeForce RTX 3080 Ti on the market is only a matter of time. Based on the engineering samples of this model, it became clear that there is protection against mining and it really works: you can use CUDA cores in game processes, but not when mining cryptocurrencies (specifically, Ethereum).

Interestingly, the new and old versions of GeForce RTX 3080 Ti have the same device identifier, which allows you to install the BIOS version without protection against mining, but in this case the video card simply will not boot: PCI device identifiers are different, and it is simply impossible to rewrite them. (they are set at both software and hardware levels). As for the software level, a more comprehensive protection against mining has already been implemented in the beta version of the driver for the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti.

In general, if this time Nvidia really succeeds in making the video card unusable in mining processes, then the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti may become the first top-end Ampere model that can actually be bought. Considering that for the GeForce RTX 3070 they are now asking about $ 1,300 (or even more), the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti offered for the same money will turn out to be a much more profitable purchase for games.

Kingstons first hardware encrypted touchscreen external SSD introduced compatible with any

Kingston introduced the IronKey Vault Privacy 80 SSD lineup. This is the company’s first OS-independent external SSD with a touch display and hardware-based data encryption. Kingston IronKey Vault Privacy 80 is compatible with Microsoft Windows, macOS, Linux, Chrome OS and any other operating system that supports USB storage. The line includes models with a capacity of 480 GB, 960 GB and 1920 GB, the manufacturer offers a three-year warranty and free maintenance.

IronKey Vault Privacy 80 is FIPS 197 certified with a 256-bit XTS-AES key and is able to protect user data from brute force attacks and BadUSB hijacking. Among the options – the ability to set multiple passwords (administrator / user), the choice between PIN and passphrase, setting password entry rules (length from 6 to 64 characters, alphanumeric combinations). The device will automatically lock if it is not used for a set period of time, and if the password is entered incorrectly 15 times in a row, then a crypto-erasure of the data will occur (all security keys are deleted). Kingston IronKey Vault Privacy 80 can also work in write-protect mode to prevent malware from entering. With all this, the drive is quite compact: its dimensions are 122.5×84.2×18.4 mm.

The GeForce RTX 3090 Ti video card, despite its status and limited supplies, did not just reach the recommended price, but fell below it faster than all other models in the line.

The huge and incredibly voracious GeForce RTX 3090 Ti can already be bought for less than the recommended price.  EVGA offers these cards for $1,900

EVGA decided it was time to sell the new product for $1900, which is $100 less than the recommended price. For this money, the FTW3 RTX 3090 Ti Black model is offered without factory overclocking, but with a large cooling system that is no different from those used in the company’s faster cards.

So far, EVGA is the only one selling the RTX 3090 Ti at this price, but there are already quite a few offerings in the US for $2,000. However, it’s not a fact that there are many who want even $ 1,900, given that this is a high price in absolute terms, as well as the fact that there is not much time left before the release of GeForce RTX 40 cards.

The Ryzen 9 7950X will be able to run at

Two days ago, AMD formally unveiled the Ryzen 7000 processors without giving much away. But she showed the new CPU at 5.5 GHz and the game Ghostwire: Toyko. And now it became known that there was no talk of overclocking then.

The Ryzen 9 7950X will be able to run at 5.5GHz for multiple cores without any overclocking.  AMD reveals demo details at Computex

The company has confirmed that the 16-core processor has not been overclocked, meaning 5.5GHz is in line with the specs. It is also worth mentioning here that the demonstration stand included Asetek liquid cooling, but this does not mean at all that such a frequency for this CPU will be achievable only with similar COs.

Moreover, the frequency of 5.5 GHz was achieved not by one core, but by several, but there are no details. AMD said that under load, the frequency fluctuated between 5.2-5.5 GHz for several cores. That is, ordinary users who buy such a CPU should also count on this.

As for the name of the CPU, AMD itself, of course, does not name it in any way yet, but most sources talk about the Ryzen 9 7950X, which is logical, since AMD has not changed the principles of naming its CPUs for a long time.
