Two years later, Nvidia is offering almost the same RTX 3080 but more expensive? Full-fledged tests of the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti appeared

The GeForce RTX 4070 Ti video card will go on sale tomorrow, and today we can evaluate what Nvidia has done this time.

Two years later, Nvidia is offering almost the same RTX 3080 but more expensive?  Full-fledged tests of the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti appeared

There are already a lot of reviews on the Web, but we will turn to one of the TechPowerUp materials, as one of the most voluminous. Our colleagues tested several cards at once, but the results are as close as possible, since there is not a big difference in frequencies. Recall that the reference RTX 4070 Ti FE does not exist.

The RTX 4070 Ti should be considered primarily as a 4K resolution solution, but it makes sense to use such an adapter in 2K as well.

As you can see, at a lower resolution, the RTX 4070 Ti performs on par with the RTX 3090 Ti, outperforming the RTX 3090 by almost 10% and trailing the Radeon RX 7900 XT by about the same 10%. That is, if we compare the new Nvidia product with the RX 7900 XT, AMD’s solution is 12.5% ​​more expensive, but not that much faster. In 4K resolution, the situation is changing not in favor of the novelty. It’s already getting much closer to the RTX 3090, with the RTX 3090 Ti taking the lead, apparently due to the wider tire. The difference with the RX 7900 XT also grows, but only slightly.

It also makes sense to compare the RTX 4070 Ti with the RTX 3080. The bottom line is that the former came out with a price of $800, while the latter debuted for $700. That is, we can say that the RTX 4070 Ti is a direct successor to the RTX 3080, based on the price. And here we see an increase of 21% in 2K resolution and only 16% in 4K. Based on the target resolution, it turns out that two years have passed and Nvidia is offering a graphics card instead of the RTX 3080, which is 14% more expensive and 16% faster. Yes, if you find fault, the RTX 3090 at the start cost $1,500, and now they are asking for only $800 for the same performance, but then even Nvidia itself said that the RTX 3090 is a solution for enthusiasts formally instead of a Titan card, and the gaming flagship is RTX 3080.

That is, it turns out that the RTX 4070 Ti right now offers very good performance for its money, because even now they are asking for almost the same money for the RTX 3080, however, if we consider the card not by itself, but in combination with all factors, then it turns out that, by and large, Nvidia offers almost the same thing as two years ago at almost the same price.

Of course, we should not forget that the RTX 4070 Ti has an advantage in the form of DLSS 3. This technology is only present in a few games so far, so it’s hard to call it a full-fledged trump card, but still it cannot be ignored.

The RTX 4070 Ti also has an unconditional plus – its energy efficiency. The Ada Lovelace architecture is head and shoulders above Ampere in this matter, so as a result, replacing the RTX 3090 in games consumes only about 285 watts, which is even less than the RTX 3070 Ti, and the RTX 3090 requires almost one and a half times more.

Are Intel Arc graphics cards going to be the best value for money now? The company claims to have increased productivity by up to 87%

Are Intel Arc graphics cards going to be the best

Intel has released a fresh graphics driver for Arc video cards, which, as the company itself promises, will increase performance by some incredible values.

Of course, not everywhere, but Intel says that in Full HD performance will increase by up to 77%, in 1440p by 87%, and the average increase for older games with DirectX 9, which Arc cards initially had problems with, should increase by 43%. All these figures are valid for the Arc A750, which Intel has just reduced the price to $250.

The growth that Intel promises is really impressive. Under these conditions, the $250 Arc A750 should be the best-value graphics card in the class, as it competes on price with the GeForce RTX 3050 and Radeon RX 6600, which it could previously beat. However, it is better to wait for various tests and evaluate whether such an impressive performance increase really takes place.

How gigantic will these Intel processors be A comparative photo

We have already seen photos of the LGA7529 socket for the new Intel Xeon server processors, and now it’s time to understand how huge the CPUs themselves will be.

In the comparison photo, you can see the LGA4677 socket for the recently released Sapphire Rapids processors and the much larger LGA7529 for the upcoming Granite Rapids and Sierra Forest CPUs.

According to preliminary calculations, the dimensions of the new CPUs will be about 105 x 70.5 mm, that is, they will be about 70% larger than the current generation, which is rather big in itself. For comparison, the dimensions of the monstrous Epyc Genoa are approximately 72 x 75.4 mm. It is quite possible that the new Intel processors will be the largest on the market at the time of release.

The LGA7529 (Birch Stream-AP) platform is expected next year. As part of the platform, Intel is going to release two lines of completely different processors. The first will be Granite Rapids, which will reportedly contain up to 128 large Redwood Cove + cores, and the second will be Sierra Forest, which will have all small cores, but there will be either 344 or even 528 of them.
