NVIDIA Released Resizable Bar For All RTX 3000 GPUs - How to get it and is there a Performance Boost

After the announcement of AMD Smart Access Memory, the NVIDIA team quickly made up the gap and added an equivalent called Resizable Bar. First for their RTX 3060 graphics cards (the basic ones, with no Ti index), and today for the entire RTX 3000 series (including 3060 Ti, 3070, 3080 and 3090). The new technology expands the PCI-Express standard, so that the processor gets access to the entire memory of the graphics card instead of 256 Megabytes chunks.

This should improve the performance in supported games, increasing the average FPS and significantly reducing FPS drops. Now we will tell you how to install it, and if the marketing promises turned out to be true.

NVIDIA Resizable Bar Does Not Affect RTX 3000 ETH Mining Hashrate

Due to the release of the BIOS update with the Resizable Bar support for NVIDIA RTX 3000 video cards, quite some people feared that the hash rate (efficiency in mining) of new video cards will increase, as will the demand from miners. Others think that the hash rate will decrease with a BIOS update. Therefore, we conducted our own testing using the example of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti in ETH mining.

Fans revealed the first Battlefield 6 art, but there is a catch

The fans have been waiting for the announcement of Battlefield 6 since the beginning of 2020 when EA announced the sudden ending of the development of Battlefield V updates.

Rumors range from modern warfare to futuristic battles in the spirit of Battlefield 2142.

Above 4G Decoding is your BIOS's dark horse. What is it and should it be enabled?

In modern motherboards BIOS, you can find the Above 4G Decoding checkbox, and now the Resizable Bar has appeared next to it. And the Resizable Bar was already well explained by AMD – the processor can directly communicate with the card through a couple of big steps, instead of a million tiny ones.

But what then is Above 4G Decoding and is it equal to Resizable Bar? No article on the internet explains the term precisely, but I will try to make the best explanation possible.

Over a month ago, AMD announced an event where they planned to showcase the new BIG NAVI cards based on the RDNA2 architecture. After the event, the prices and key specs of the Radeon RX 6800, 6800 XT and 6900 XT were revealed, but even now we have more questions than answers.

However, there were reasons for that: the company prepared unique content to launch on the new platform!

TSMC is now more expensive than NVIDIA, Samsung and AMD

The market capitalization of the largest semiconductor manufacturer has grown on the back of success in conquering new technological processes. Now Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, where NVIDIA and Apple make their chips, was valued at $306 billion, which is higher than many competitors in this field.

The off-road freight simulator Spintires (2014) and its successor Spintires MudRunner (2017) became the synonym of the best offroad game. But now, despite the complexity and detailed simulation of physics, the popular series has become available on mobile platforms.

Free and Open-Source Godot Engine now supports a new amazing lighting system, that will allow developers to create fully dynamic outdoor illumination. It's called SDFGI (signed distance field cascades global illumination) and offers a balance between quality and performance by dividing the screen space to distance cascades with different accuracy.
