Disclosed characteristics of Intel DG2 video accelerators / News / Overclockers.ua

German journalist Igor Wallossek (Igor Wallossek) got hold of fresh details about graphics accelerators Intel DG2. According to the chipmaker’s plans, the release of the first video adapters of this family will take place before the end of this year. Through his own sources, Mr. Vallossek found out more precise dates.

Intel Iris Xe graphics card by ASUS

The main focus of the processor giant is on mobile 3D accelerators and plans to launch serial production of junior solutions in October-November. At the same time, top-end GPUs will be sent to the conveyor between mid-December and early March 2022. It will be possible to meet Intel DG2 video adapters in gaming laptops based on Tiger Lake-H and Alder Lake-P processors.

Intel DG2

There is still little information about the desktop modifications of the Intel DG2. To begin with, the processor giant wants to test its strength in the mobile market, and only after that enter the fight with AMD and Nvidia for the market for gaming video cards. Be that as it may, official details about DG2 video adapters will become known in the second half of 2021. The characteristics of 3D accelerators can be found below.

64TB Sabrent RocketQ Battleship PCI-E 4.0 x16 Hard Drive Coming

The American company Sabrent will soon establish the supply of the RocketQ Battleship solid-state drive, the preparation of which became known back in January. The device has a capacity of 64 TB, is made in the format of a single-slot expansion card with active cooling and a 6-pin additional power connector, and PCI Express 4.0 x16 acts as a connection interface.

Sabrent RocketQ Battleship

With its help, the vendor combined eight 8-terabyte SSD RocketQ into a RAID 0 array, achieving sequential read speeds up to 28 GB / s.

Sabrent RocketQ Battleship

If we talk about the cost of such an SSD, then Sabrent is keeping it a secret for now. Considering that one RocketQ NVMe drive with a capacity of 8 TB will cost $ 1299, then a 64 TB RocketQ Battleship will have to shell out more than ten thousand dollars.

The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti video card can already be bought for $ 3,500 / News / Overclockers.ua

It has become increasingly difficult for Nvidia to keep track of its retail partners not selling graphics cards ahead of schedule. For example, entire batches of GeForce RTX 3060 ended up in the hands of “cyberstarters” long before the official start of sales. Now it’s the turn of the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. The most interesting thing is that this model has not yet been presented by the chip maker and, according to the available data, should go on sale only in a month.

MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Suppress X

A UAE retailer offers MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Suprim X graphics card for about $ 3,500. We add that this is not the first time that Middle Eastern stores start selling “hardware” before the official deadline. In most cases, for a novelty that has not yet been released, you will have to pay many times more than its recommended cost. According to unofficial sources, Nvidia itself estimated the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti at about $ 1000.

On the other hand, even if miners and PC enthusiasts from the United Arab Emirates shell out for the MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Suprim X, they will not be able to use it yet. A set of graphics drivers with support for the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is not yet freely available. Nvidia will release it only on the day the new graphics card is released.

Chia Coin Mining Already Used More Exabyte of Disk Space

Over the past weeks, the Chia Coin cryptocurrency has made a lot of noise in the information space, and also led to a shortage of large storage volumes. If, for example, Ethereum miners sweep off the shelves any video cards that are somehow suitable for mining, then in the case of a new currency, SSD and HDD act as “tools of labor”. We add that some manufacturers have already started warning miners about the loss of the warranty.

Mining Chia

The excitement around the mining of Chia Coin has led to the fact that in just a month the total capacity of the drives involved in the mining of cryptocurrency has grown almost tenfold – from 120 petabytes to 1.14 exabytes. Roughly speaking, in April, more than 50 thousand hard drives with a capacity of 20 TB were added to the existing drives.

Mining Chia

The impact of cryptocurrency on the storage market can be judged by Ukrainian retail. Nowadays, most high-capacity HDD models have disappeared from the shelves, and those that are available are offered at an overpriced price.
