It seems that more than one batch of problematic Radeon RX 7900s has hit the market.

Thousands of problematic Radeon RX 7900 XTX hit the market.  AMD also suspects a vapor chamber

One of the users who faced the problem of strong heating of the RX 7900 XTX shared an email sent to him by AMD.

It says that AMD was going to make a new official announcement last night, but for some reason this did not happen. However, the statement came out today and will be reproduced below. More importantly, AMD is suggesting that the reason lies in the vapor chamber, as a well-known overclocker has already shown, and that four to six batches, that is, thousands of 3D cards, have already hit the market. In this case, we are talking exclusively about reference cards.

It is also reported that system integrators have already returned hundreds of adapters to AMD, and these too were only reference models. However, for some reason, the problem is described as if it only affects the RX 7900 XTX, although numerous tests and reviews indicate that the RX 7900 XT also has the same problems.

As for AMD’s statement, it contains the following text:

We are working to determine the cause of the unexpected performance issue with AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX graphics cards. Based on our observations to date, we believe the issue is related to the cooling system used in AMD’s reference design and occurs in a limited number of cards sold. We are working to resolve this issue for the affected maps. Customers experiencing this unexpected limitation should contact AMD Support

Recall that earlier enthusiast and insider Igor Wallossek (Igor Walllossek) faced the same problem on the RX 7900 XT, and found other shortcomings in the cooling system.

Major Indian retailer Reliance Retail has implemented support for digital rupee payments in one of its Freshpik stores and plans to expand this experience to all formats of the network.

One of the largest retail chains in India, Reliance Retail, began accepting digital rupees as part of a pilot project.

V Subramaniam, chief executive of Reliance Retail, noted that the adoption of a central bank digital currency (CBDC) is in line with the firm’s vision of providing “choice” to Indian consumers. The executive also emphasized that this initiative gives the firm the opportunity to offer an alternative payment method in its stores.

To make a purchase, customers only need to scan a QR code.

“Indians will get another efficient and secure alternative payment method” — said the top manager.

The deployment of CBDC was made possible through collaboration with ICICI Bank, Kotak Mahindra Bank and Innovative Technologies.

Plans for the country’s CBDC were laid out by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on October 7, 2022. The country’s central bank has identified various factors, including the potential positive and negative impact of the digital rupee on the country. According to the RBI, one of the motivations for creating a CBDC is to reduce the operating costs of managing cash.

It seems that Samsung took into account the problems with the Galaxy S22 line of smartphones and did not repeat them in new devices when it comes to cooling systems.

Well-known insider Ice Universe has published a visual comparison of the approximate sizes of cooling systems in each flagship of the past generation and the new one.

As you can see, all systems have become noticeably larger, and in the younger model, instead of a graphite film, an evaporation chamber has appeared.

Whether this is enough for the new products not to overheat and not throttling so much, tests will show, but the performance, as we can already see, is really good. Recall that today we also saw a comparison of the Galaxy S22 Ultra and S23 Ultra cameras.

Ice Universe was the first to accurately talk about the new trend for smartphones with waterfall screens, about the notch in the iPhone X, about the new design of the iPhone 14 and about Samsung’s 200-megapixel image sensor.
