Keep in mind that regardless of platform, there are some things to keep in mind for presentation. For example, listing description, photos, and packaging up your graphics card are important and take time.
\"RTX\" simply refers to the ray tracing abilities of the newer graphics card model. It isn't an entirely different category of card so much as it is the successor to the previous GTX generation. There isn't really a reason to buy the older GTX cards aside from cost if you're looking to get a budget GPU option.
All of this work is definitely going to prove helpful in building the 2nd generation discrete GPU and graphics card lineup known as Arc Battlemage. While Tom can't talk specifics yet, he did state that the bulk of their design team (both architecture and software side) is now working on it and the architecture itself will feature some cool new technologies and most importantly, it will address some of the issues discovered on the architecture-level on Alchemist GPUs. These issues wouldn't have been there if Intel already had a first generation out but now that they do, they can fix those and make Battlemage work even better right off the bat.
Obviously, I am not going to disclose new dates for Battlemage or specs but I can say that the bulk of our design team, both on the architecture and software side, are working on it and progress is accelerating and moving along quite quickly. There are some cool new technologies that I want to talk about that I won't but let's just say that Battlemage is our 2nd generation discrete graphics card, it's moving along as expected and the bulk of our team is on it.
There's been an acute shortage in the supply of graphics cards over the past couple of years, but some signs indicate it might change for the better. Unfortunately, buying a graphics card remains a mammoth task in early 2022, and the situation is so bad that even scalpers are struggling to get their hands on graphics cards, let alone end-users.
Circa 2022, there are very few ways of buying graphics cards, with the coveted items remaining MIA at most online and offline retailers. Still, Newegg Shuffle is one way to get graphics cards at reasonable prices, while subscribing to various online tools and channels can also help with that. All of that notwithstanding, the situation remains grim for gamers and DIY PC builders.
While NVIDIA's Chief Financial Officer Colette Kress has said that the company expects its graphics card supplies to improve by the second half of 2022, there are now indications that it might happen sooner than expected. While the global chip shortage is one of the main reasons for the acute scarcity in the availability of graphics cards, it was compounded by cryptominers buying up GPUs in bulk as cryptocurrency prices kept soaring throughout the past year. Now that crypto prices are moving south, sales of graphics cards have also started to go down, suggesting that demand from the crypto-mining sector might be dwindling. This is having a cascading effect on prices, with Tom's Hardware reporting that graphics card prices on eBay have also started taking a nosedive.
According to the report, the RTX 3090 price fell almost 10-percent between late December and late January, while the RX 6900 XT price fell as much as 20-percent. Meanwhile, the RX 6800 price fell a whopping 65-percent during the same period. Overall, if the trend continues, prices should rationalize even further in the coming months, making it possible to buy graphics cards at MSRP before the end of this year. Of course, many things have to fall in place for that to happen, but it is undoubtedly on the cards for the first time in over a year.
As explained by Digital Trends, the chip shortage is partly due to the unavailability of ABF substrate, a critical component in the manufacturing of CPUs and GPUs. The substance is primarily supplied by one single Japanese company, leading to the supply crunch. Both Intel and AMD are now trying to get new suppliers to return to a semblance of normalcy where people do not have to pay through their noses to get their hands on new processors or graphics cards. According to industry insiders quoted by Taiwanese publication DigiTimes, the ABF substrate shortage would start to normalize by summer 2022, so if crypto prices remain in check, graphics cards might soon be easier to find and at reasonable prices.
It has been discovered (translation) that \"many retailers\" in Germany are selling Nvidia GeForce GT 440 graphics cards in GeForce GTX 660 clothing. As well as the obvious packaging and presentation deception the VGA BIOS misreports the spec of the fake cards, however other tools on your PC will be able to see through that digital deceit.
These 'bargain' graphics cards have been benchmarked and offered up about a quarter of the performance of a real GTX 660. That tallies with the GT 440's much reduced shader count, and use of slower DDR3 memory, among other poorer specs of the Fermi generation GF106.
The cards were apparently bought direct from China by German wholesaler Kosatec and sold on \"to numerous German online stores,\" including Jacob Elektronik. Heise.de reports that the original listing for these 'Nvidia GTX660 4096MB Bulk' graphics cards was accompanied by a picture of a retail GTX 660 card from ZOTAC (as above). Since the discovery of the fakery ZOTAC has threatened legal action.
When Kosatec was pressed for the original source of its 'Nvidia GTX660 4096MB Bulk' stocks it responded that it received them direct from manufacturer Point of View. However further investigation by Heise.de reveals that POV deny both selling the cards and that the cards are of its manufacture: the serial number naming scheme doesn't match POV's scheme.
Now it seems that Nvidia is on the case. It should be able to find where the chips fitted to these cards came from using the serial numbers found upon the GPUs. While we await the outcome of that investigation, if any is made public, Heise.de says buyers should return their 'Nvidia GTX660 4096MB Bulk' graphics cards to retailers for refunds.
Since late November the value of Ethereum (ETH) has tripled. This cryptocurrency is the most popular one among GPU miners. We have heard many stories where miners in China are queuing up to NVIDIA board partner factories in hopes to buy graphics cards in bulk. Some AIBs agree to sell cards directly to them because those clients pay more (usually 1/3 more than any distributor) and they get limited or no warranty at all.
At SellGPU, we are always looking to purchase used laptops and desktops of all shapes and sizes, including the newest models with state-of-the-art graphics cards, processors, and memory, as well as older and more basic versions. Beyond old laptops, we also buy other devices and computer parts.
For example, Dell will buy processors from Intel and graphics cards from AMD, then assemble them into pre-built PCs. Dell buys directly from the manufacturer in bulk through routes not accessible to the average consumer.
OEM hardware is exactly the same in capabilities and performance as its retail counterpart. Storage drives, optical drives, and PCI expansion cards are the most common types of components offered for sale as OEM. But many other products may be offered this way in limited numbers.
However, the hardware usually doesn't ship with extra components, even those critical to the hardware's operation. OEM computer processors, for example, may not ship with fans. An OEM video card or hard drive often doesn't ship with the cables or adapters needed to use it. That's because a usual OEM buyer will secure these in bulk separately.
There may also be restrictions on the warranty. When compared to a retail warranty, the length offered might be reduced or non-existent. This is because it's expected that the system manufacturer will provide it. For example, if the AMD graphics card in your Dell computer malfunctions, you contact Dell for support, not AMD.
Cashout Kings is but one of several groups that specialize in bulk buying from scalpers. We found at least four other groups on Twitter that also promise to buy up consoles in exchange for cash. And apparently, the services have been in a demand.
Several tech media outlets including VideoCardz and Wccftech subsequently suggested that the mining farm was set up specifically for mining Ether. The reports also cited a recent fun video by Bilibili user Fish Pond F2pool showing how easy it is to mine crypto on a laptop equipped with a new RTX 3060 graphics card. Using a laptop plugged into the wall socket at Starbucks, the user reportedly mined 0.00053 ETH (worth an estimated $0.89) in around two hours.
As with any finished product, a lower price tag means more modest components inside. Higher priced workstation PCs have large storage drives (or faster solid state drives), more powerful CPUs, come equipped with more system memory, and may have a discrete graphics card or two. The types that scale best are probably the cheapest workstation-class desktops, which cost less because they ship with room on the motherboard for expansion. They have free PCI-e and DIMM slots for adding components and upgrades later.
If you happen to find bundles of graphics cards sold for impossibly low prices in the near future, regardless of their apparent source, beware their source. Make sure you understand their entire provenance, from original sale to use to secondary sale. If the seller cannot provide any sort of proof that a graphics card wasn't used in a mining operation, it's probably best to pass.
