In the US, the BestBuy retail chain sells GeForce RTX 30 video cards in a rather unusual way at recommended prices.
Despite the fact that video cards are gradually becoming cheaper, the deficit and impressive margins have not disappeared yet. And even a year and a half after the announcement of the GeForce RTX 30 card, it is almost impossible to buy at the recommended prices.
BestBuy in the US is the exclusive reseller of GeForce RTX 30 Founders Edition cards. And now it seems to be even more difficult to buy such adapters just like that. The fact is that the company launched the BestBuy Totaltech program, within which, for $200 a year, users receive multiple benefits, including free shipping on a number of products, round-the-clock technical support, the ability to return goods within 60 days, and so on. And besides all this, the company decided to add the possibility of buying GeForce RTX 30 FE video cards at recommended prices. Yes, this does not mean that ordinary buyers will not get such cards, but they will probably get it only if they are not bought up by participants in the Totaltech program. Moreover, BestBuy does not limit one user to one card: you can buy much more, as long as they are different models.
However, if we talk about older RTX 30 cards, those very $ 200, even as a one-time overpayment, still fall short of the markups available on the market, that is, it is simply profitable. Including resellers.
When the GeForce RTX 4080 and Ryzen 9 7950X3D were placed in a sneaker. Unusual computer Cooler Master Sneaker X goes on sale
More than six months after its announcement, the unusual Cooler Master Sneaker X PC sneaker is finally going on sale. Moreover, the basic version turned out to be much cheaper than previously stated, although the PC is still very expensive.
The cheapest version is the one with Core i7-13700K and RTX 4070 – they ask for $3,500. The modification with RTX 4080 and Ryzen 9 7950X3D turned out to be the most expensive. They are asking 4,700 euros for this one, but in the USA, apparently, it simply won’t be available.
The configuration also always includes at least 32 GB of RAM and a 2 TB SSD. The power supply always has a power of 850 W.
It is difficult to understand from the photo what the dimensions of the PC are, so it is worth noting that it is 650 x 305 x 650 mm.
Almost $5,000 for an Nvidia video card with a 256-bit bus, but 32 GB of memory. RTX 5000 Ada appeared in retail
Nvidia has launched the RTX 5000 Ada graphics adapter. This is a professional solution that should not be confused with the regular RTX 5000, since the latter is a previous generation model.
The RTX 5000 Ada has been available for about a month now, but previously it could only be purchased as part of ready-made workstations. Now it has appeared in retail, although so far, apparently, only in China.
There they ask for about $4,800 for a new product. This is about half the price of the RTX 6000 Ada, but the parameters of the younger model are simpler. The card offers an AD102 GPU, but with only 12,800 active CUDA cores. At the same time, the new product has 32 GB of memory, but a 256-bit bus. Performance (FP32) is 65.3 TFLOPS with a TDP of only 250 W.
Neither in Blender nor in V-Ray can the new Core i9-14900K outperform the “old” Ryzen 9 7950X
The results of testing the Core i9-14900K processor in tasks that can actually load modern multi-core processors have appeared on the Internet.
In Blender, the new product scores almost 560 points, which is 6% more than the Core i9-13900KS. This is good considering that these are technically identical CPUs. The new product is already 8% ahead of its direct predecessor, the Core i9-13900K. However, the Ryzen 9 7950X is still a little faster.
In V-Ray, the new Intel flagship showed a result of 27,790 points, ahead of the Core i9-13900KS by 5% and its predecessor by 8%. But here again the AMD flagship is ahead.
Of course, it was clear in advance that Raptor Lake Refresh would only be a very minor update (except for the Core i7, which will get more cores), but now we can verify this not only through the results from Geekbench.
