Video cards are quickly becoming more expensive again. The lowest mark-up on the most expensive AMD model right now

Published

Video cards began to rise in price again. This is especially true for AMD adapters. In this case, we will consider European prices. In the table below you will find the most attractive offers at the moment for each of the current Radeon and GeForce models. That is, the average price will be higher, but at the indicated prices the cards are really available.

RX 6600 XT RX 6700 XT RX 6800 RX 6800 XT RX 6900 XT RTX 3060 RTX 3060 Ti RTX 3070 RTX 3080 RTX 3090
Minimum price for July 31, EUR 680 1000 1100 1375 500 670 820 1160 1895
The minimum price at the moment, euros 640 800 1300 1280 1350 623 717 912 1300 2450

As you can see, almost all AMD video cards have risen in price, and sometimes significantly. The only exception was the top-end RX 6900 XT, which even fell a little in a month and a half. For comparison, the GeForce RTX 3090, on the contrary, has risen in price. And now it is the AMD flagship that is the video card with the lowest markup in percentage terms relative to the recommended price. You need to overpay 35%. On the whole, it is only the RX 6900 XT that did not grow over the past month and a half, and it is not very clear what caused this situation.

As for the rise in price in general, there are several reasons. This is the rise in price of cryptocurrencies, and the tightening of the deficit at the end of the summer.

Greenliant G7200 PX Industrial SSD Lineup includes models up to 7.68 TB

Published

on

Greenliant has unveiled the G7200 PX solid-state drives, which it says will provide enterprise-grade data reliability, high performance, and industrial temperatures (-40 ° C to + 85 ° C). The lineup includes models in 1.92, 3.84 and 7.68 TB. They use TLC 3D NAND memory.

The 2.5-inch SATA 6Gb / s drives are compatible with existing systems and are therefore well suited for upgrades by replacing hard drives with SSDs. They provide sequential read and write speeds of up to 550 and 530 MB / s, respectively. The resource is advertised as being able to perform two complete rewrites per day (DWPD) over a period of 5 years.

Among the advantages of the drives, the manufacturer considers the presence of a data loss protection scheme during a power outage, support for hardware encryption using the AES algorithm with a 256-bit key and guaranteed data erasure without the possibility of recovery, as well as support for hot swapping.

Greenliant 7200 PX preview samples are now available. The company plans to begin mass deliveries by the end of 2021.
