Video cards are getting cheaper. EBay prices decline amid rising payback periods for 3D cards from miners

Published

It looks like video cards are starting to get cheaper. At least on eBay. Bitcoin has been trading in the range from $ 30,000 to $ 42,000 for about a month, having fallen there from the mark of almost $ 65,000, and after it, all other cryptocurrencies fell accordingly.

Thus, now the payback period for video cards, through which Ethereum and a number of other cryptocurrencies are mined, has grown significantly, which has begun to be reflected in prices.

Tom’s Hardware, which maintains its own statistics on prices for video cards on eBay, claims that for the first time since February 2021, the market has seen a downward trend in prices for almost all 3D cards. The exception is the Radeon RX 6900 XT, which has risen in price by 1.3% since May. Generally speaking, the changes can be seen in the table below.

As you can see, in some cases, prices fell by more than 10%. Of course, with huge markups, this still does not give us adequate prices, but still, the decline is welcome.

The source also notes a significant drop in the number of video cards sold over the past month. For example, sales of the RTX 3090 dropped 35%, while Radeon adapters saw a 27% drop on average. While the RTX 3060 Ti and RX 6800 XT showed growth of 1% and 9%, respectively. What is the reason for the decline in sales is still unclear. Plus, these are only eBay sales.

Withdrawing money from a VTB ATM using a QR code

The VTB Bank team announced the expansion of the possibility of contactless cash withdrawals at its ATMs.

Withdrawing money from a VTB ATM using a QR code without a plastic card has become even easier

Now bank customers can withdraw funds using a QR code through VTB Online from any debit or credit card. Previously, this technology was used when withdrawing cash from digital cards.

The new functionality allows you to withdraw cash from any debit or credit card opened under a comprehensive service agreement using the VTB Online mobile application. The client needs to scan the QR code located on the main screen of the ATM, then select the card from which the funds will be debited, enter the required amount and confirmation code, after which the cash withdrawal will begin.

The cash withdrawal service at VTB ATMs without the use of plastic cards was launched in 2020. To carry out this operation, users had to first activate the “Cash withdrawal without a card” service in VTB Online, after which the funds on the master account became available for contactless withdrawal. Last autumn, the bank’s customers got the opportunity to withdraw cash from digital cards without connecting additional services in the mobile application, and now a similar technology is available for all customer cards under a comprehensive service agreement.

In August 2018, during the launch of the GeForce 20 graphics cards, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huand jokingly announced the arrival of the GTX 1180 card. Of course, such a model does not exist, but there is another one. Apparently, Nvidia planned to release at least one 20-series card with the name GTX.

A Reddit user under the pseudonym upance22 posted several photos of what is allegedly an engineering sample of the GTX 2080 video card. If this is not a high-quality fake, then such a card was really planned to be released.

According to the source, the card was purchased on eBay for $360, and the seller used it to mine cryptocurrencies. The card has a cooling system and a PG180 board identical to the production version of the RTX 2080.

At the same time, it seems that the engineering version uses a graphics chip with support for ray tracing and DLSS. So it’s the only GTX card capable of doing that.

Note that the original post is already deleted, but some test results are given in the comments. The author managed to run GTA 5 on the system with this map.
