In the photo below, you can see a very unusual Intel processor that never hit the market.

This Intel processor never hit the market.  A photo of a strange sample of the Cannon Lake-Y line appeared

The photo shows a Cannon Lake-Y CPU with an unusual three-chip layout. According to the documents, the first die is the processor part itself, the second is the chipset, and the third, because of which the CPU is unique, is a McIVR – a multi-chip integrated voltage regulator.

This processor belongs to the Cannon Lake line, which in general has a very unusual fate. These were the first consumer 10nm Intel CPUs to hit the market. But the fact is that only one model entered the market – Core i3-8121U. This is a dual-core processor with a disabled GPU and low frequencies. It ended up appearing in just a few laptop models and in the Crimson Canyon NUC, and then Intel abandoned the idea of ​​\u200b\u200breleasing this line, and Ice Lake became the first 10nm line to fully enter the market.

The imprinted CPU labeled Special Semples is likely a thermal test piece, as there are adhesive tapes left on the chips to secure the thermocouple.

AMD is preparing a graphics card with 2 GB of

AMD seems to have prepared another ultra-budget graphics card. There was no announcement of the novelty yet, but it has already been registered in the latest driver.

AMD is preparing a graphics card with 2 GB of memory and a 32-bit bus?  Radeon Pro W6300 already registered in the company's driver

The model is called Radeon Pro W6300, that is, it is a professional accelerator. It has an analogue in the form of a mobile card Radeon Pro W6300M, and you can also expect the appearance of the gaming RX 6300, especially since there have already been rumors about it.

Specifications are not yet known, but it is expected that both professional and gaming new items will receive 2 GB of memory with a 32-bit bus and 768 stream processors. These are the characteristics of the mobile Radeon Pro W6300M. Of course, this is the card of the most basic class, but it is still more productive than most integrated GPUs.

How much such an adapter might cost is anyone’s guess, but an RX 6400 with the same GPU but 4GB of memory and a 64-bit bus costs $160.

Nvidia, where are the normal prices for inexpensive video cards? In Europe, prices fell by half of the Radeon RX 6000 models and just two RTX 30 models

Nvidia where are the normal prices for inexpensive video cards

Despite the fact that a few months ago the average prices for video cards were at the level of recommended values, individual models have room for cheaper prices and they are getting cheaper.

Nvidia, where are the normal prices for inexpensive video cards?  In Europe, prices fell by half of the Radeon RX 6000 models and just two RTX 30 models

In particular, affordable AMD models were actively getting cheaper in the first half of the year and now they are generally not getting cheaper, but the more expensive ones continue to fall.

RX6400 RX6500XT RX6600 RX6600XT RX6650XT RX6700 RX6700XT RX6750XT RX6800 RX6800XT RX6900XT RX6950XT
Minimum price on July 26, euro 169 189 279 374 399 439 469 559 659 749 869 1173
Minimum price for today, euro 169 199 269 375 359 429 469 497 589 679 769 899
GTX 1630 RTX 3050 RTX 3060 RTX 3060 Ti RTX 3070 RTX 3070 Ti RTX 3080 RTX 3080 Ti RTX 3090 RTX 3090 Ti
Minimum price on July 26, euro 175 309 379 469 569 669 779 999 1323 1449
Minimum price for today, euro 175 300 379 459 578 679 799 999 1050 1199

For example, as you can see, the Radeon RX 6950 XT, instead of 1173 euros a couple of months ago, now costs only 900 euros, and this is the most productive AMD card and, together with the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, one of the most productive on the market in general. At least until the start of sales of the RTX 4090. At the same time, just a couple of months ago, the RX 6900 XT cost the same as the RX 6950 XT now, the RX 6800 XT, like the RX 6900 XT, and so on.

Things are not so good with Nvidia cards. Here, only two top models fell in price, however, both are very significant. The situation is worse with other adapters. For example, the popular RTX 3060 is now worth as much as the significantly more powerful RX 6650 XT, and the RTX 3080 Ti is 100 euros more expensive than the RX 6950 XT.
