The bi-weekly processor podcast from c’t is available …
Turbulence has been raging on the graphics card market for around a year: attractive cards from Nvidia and AMD appeared in autumn 2020, namely the GeForce 3000 RTX and Radeon 6000 series. But the boom in crypto currencies drove prices through the roof. The situation is gradually returning to normal and if Intel finally manages to deliver its “Arc” cards in 2022, the competition could really get going.
But c’t editor Carsten Spille sees indications that attractive 100 Euro graphics cards could become extinct – among other things because integrated graphics processors (IGP) have been greatly improved. Carsten Spille talks about this with c’t colleague Christof Windeck in the 2021/16 issue of “Bit noise: The processor podcast from c’t”.
