Until recently, 3B gaming cards were converted into mining ones, but now it’s the other way around. Sapphire Unveils Radeon 6700 Accelerators That Are Surprisingly Similar to the BC-2235 GPRO X080 Mining Model
A day after the leak, indicating the imminent release of the Radeon RX 6700 graphics card, Sapphire, a longtime AMD partner, officially introduced the new product. In technical terms, everything that was said in the previous leak was confirmed: the Radeon RX 6700 has 36 execution units, 2304 stream processors and 10 GB of GDDR6 memory with a 160-bit bus. And here comes something interesting.
The first point: now we can confidently say that the desktop Radeon RX 6700 is an analogue of the mobile Radeon RX 6700M. The parameters are exactly the same, except that the TDP varies significantly: 220 W for the desktop version and 135 W for the mobile one.
The second point: in terms of their parameters (and external design), the Radeon RX 6700 is almost exactly the same as the previously released Sapphire model BC-2235 GPRO X080, designed for miners. It turns out that now it has been converted into a gaming 3D accelerator, although earlier gaming video cards were converted into accelerators for miners. Such an interesting transformation has taken place in the market.
Both Sapphire Radeon RX 6700 3D cards run at 2230 – 2495 MHz and have 80 MB of fast Infinity Cache memory. The set of video outputs is standard: three DisplayPort and one HDMI. Prices have not yet been announced.
Rumor: Nvidia Stops Production of GeForce RTX 3080 GPUs After GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Drops in Price
A steep rise in the value of major cryptocurrencies triggered a cascade of events that resulted in the collapse of prices for new video cards. Many models have fallen in price, including top ones like the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti: with a recommended price of $1,200 (in the US), it is offered by the largest American retailers, Newegg and Amazon, for less than $1,000.
A small price gap between the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and the GeForce RTX 3080 with 12GB of memory has led Nvidia to suspend shipments of GPUs to partners for the latter. So wrote one of the Twitter users familiar with the situation. It is impossible to confirm or refute these words, but in general such a development of events can be considered quite probable.
Up to 8 XE cores and 6 GB of memory: the first information about the Intel Arc Pro A50/A40 graphics cards appeared
The database of the SiSoftware Sandra test package has fresh data on the upcoming Arc A40 Pro and Arc A50 Pro graphics cards. These are graphics accelerators for workstations that are designed for engineering tasks.
The A50 Pro has a full ACM-G11 GPU with 8 Xe cores (128 execution units/1024 FP32 cores), while the A40 Pro is likely to get a stripped-down version of the chip. The clock frequency is 2.45 GHz.
Both cards have 6 GB GDDR6 memory, indicating a 96-bit memory bus. In this regard, both models are similar to the Arc A380 mobile card, which has almost the same configuration.
Thus, the company continues to prepare its entry-level products. When high-performance gaming and professional solutions based on the ACM-G10 GPU will appear, it is not reported. It is also not yet clear whether the Arc A40 Pro and Arc A50 Pro cards will be available in retail or whether they will appear only as part of workstations.
Earlier, Intel introduced its first gaming graphics card for $150.
Named the likely date of the announcement of the mobile processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2
Qualcomm has updated its 2022 product launch roadmap. And there, among other things, they indicated the likely date for the announcement of the flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. It is expected to be shown on the first day of the Snapdragon Summit event, which will be held from November 14 to 17.
Qualcomm also announced the Snapdragon X70 5G modem that will be included with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. It is credited with download speeds of up to 10 Gbps, as well as new advanced features for working in fifth-generation networks.
The processor (SM8550) will be manufactured using TSMC’s 4nm process. It will use a three-cluster layout. The composition is expected to include one super-powerful Cortex X3 core, two productive Cortex-A720 and A710, as well as three energy-efficient Cortex-A510. An Adreno740 graphics accelerator is also expected.
It is assumed that the first smartphone based on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor will be Xiaomi 13, its presentation is expected before the end of 2022.
