Excerpt from the purchase advice: current developments in the hardware sector
The year is coming to an end and the Christmas business is just around the corner! Manufacturers are once again keenly courting buyers, and the new GPU/CPU generations are tempting some gamers and professionals to upgrade. After months of dry spells, life is finally coming back to the PC hardware segment. Time for an update.
On the graphics card side, there are now three valid manufacturers, because in addition to the well-known GPU giants Nvidia and AMD, Intel is also joining them this year with the Arc series. Nvidia is currently making headlines with the new Ada Lovelace generation, thanks to the Geforce RTX 4090 24 GiB and RTX 4080 16 GiB. The extremely high-performance GPUs are primarily equipped with at least approx. 1,470 euros or proud approx. 2,200 euros primarily intended for extremely demanding users and enthusiasts – in addition to significantly more powerful ray tracing performance, Nvidia also relies on the so-called frame generation within the third iteration of DLSS upsampling. Meanwhile, AMD is launching the new Radeon RX 7000 series cards, starting with the RX 7900 XTX 24 GiB and the cheaper XT variant with 20 GiB, which will be released on December 13th. Due to the Ethereum merger and the resulting profitable GPU crypto mining operations, GPU prices are no longer overpriced across the board. With Nvidia, however, Ampere remains in the stable, relatively high price range (about the RTX 3080 10 GiB for about 780 euros), while AMD’s RX 6000 series GPUs are comparatively pleasantly priced (for example the RX 6800 XT 16 GiB for 680 euros).
Intel offers the processors Raptor Lake and AMD with Ryzen 7000 currently a high-performance new offer in the clock range of partly over 5.0 GHz. With Intel’s Alder or Raptor Lake, the memory generation can still be selected by selecting the mainboard version, with AMD’s Zen 4, on the other hand, only DDR5 instead of DDR4 is possible. Both circuit board bases would have it in terms of price, but with Raptor Lake you can save even more older Socket 1700 boards than with the AM5 motherboards with a new socket.
