A graphics card (additionally called a video card, show card, graphics adapter, or display adapter) is a growth card which produces a feed of result images to a display screen device (such as a computer system screen). Often, these are marketed as distinct or dedicated graphics cards, stressing the distinction between these and incorporated graphics. At the core of both is the graphics processing device (GPU), which is the almost all that does the actual computations, yet should not be confused with the graphics card all at once, although GPU is usually used as a metonymic shorthand to describe graphics cards.
Many graphics cards are not restricted to simple display screen result. Their integrated graphics cpu can execute extra handling, removing this task from the main cpu of the computer. For instance, Nvidia and AMD (previously ATI) generated cards that provide the graphics pipes OpenGL and DirectX on the hardware level. In the later 2010s, there has also been a tendency to make use of the computing capabilities of the graphics processor to address non-graphic tasks, which can be done through making use of OpenCL and CUDA. Graphics cards are used extensively for AI training, cryptocurrency mining and molecular simulation.Usually, the graphics card is made in the kind of a printed circuit board (development board) as well as put into a growth slot, global or specific (AGP, PCI Express). Some have been made utilizing devoted rooms, which are attached to the computer through a docking station or a wire. These are referred to as eGPUs.
After the graphics card prices seemed to calm down in the summer of the year, they have been rising rapidly for several months. Both models of AMD as well as NVIDIA are currently offered to usury prices – a bad month for all PC players.
Graphic card prices continue
The hardware crisis continues to hold on and ensures a further price increase in current graphics card models of NVIDIA and AMD. The 3DCenter experts have recovered the sales prices of the graphics accelerators in recent weeks and published their results in a graphic that lets the heart of PC players slide into the pants:
Thus, AMD graphics cards are sold twice as expensive in relation to the EIA, while NVIDIA models are traded 88 percent above the EIA. A look at the price history shows that sales prices have risen constantly in recent months (Source: 3DCenter).
Also worrying is the course of the dashed line indicating as it is the availability of the individual GPUs. The higher the line, the more video cards can be really buy. The problem: The availability of the current graphics card models seems to have fallen again in recent weeks, would also explain the higher sales prices.
And what else happened this week? We summarize the most important news in the NVIDIA HEADLINES for you:
When is there for cheap hardware again?
Not only AMD and NVIDIA suffer from the current hardware crisis, Also Microsoft and Sony feel the effects of selling their Next-Gen consoles. Thus, the Xbox Series X and PS5 already appeared almost a year ago, but can not be easily freely acquired today.
Better as PS5 and Xbox Series X? A console has almost no one on the screen
But when is the bottleneck to chips and Co. finally overcome? AMD boss Lisa su expects the supply at the earliest in the summer 2022 with the demand. Until then, consumers and companies continue to expect delivery bottlenecks.
