There are plenty of ways to bling out your PC with an LED light show. You can install LED fans, cold cathode tubes, LED strips, and a few other options. Still not enough? Than perhaps you'll be interested to know that NVIDIA, for the first time ever, has begun selling GeForce GTX SLI LED bridges in 2-Way, 2-Way Spaced, and 3-Way Spaced configurations. You may have seen these same LED bridges in configured systems that were showcased during NVIDA's 24-hour PC gaming event called GAME24. Now's your chance to own one. The bridges are designed for GeForce GTX cards with SLI support -- specifically,... Read more...
By now, you know that Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan graphics are here. (Check out our in-depth look here.) Maingear is one of the system builders to get in early on the technology, and it’s touting GTX Titan in three systems, ranging from the space-conscious Potenza to the muscle PC SHIFT. Maingear's Potenza is a space-saver. The Potenza is a mini-ITX gamer (see our review) that takes up a mere 7.4 x 9.25 inches on your desk, so it’s not surprising that the system includes only one GTX Titan-based card. Maingear installed the motherboard so that hot air from the cards exhausts at the top... Read more...
In a surprising turn of events, NVIDIA-built graphics cards have begun popping up at Best Buy stores across the nation. This is decidedly odd for a company that's made billions of dollars designing GPU products while leveraging board partners to bear the cost of manufacturing and marketing them, but NVIDIA confirmed that this new Best Buy partnership is a new direction for the company. "NVIDIA and Best Buy are working together to offer PC customers the opportunity to experience firsthand the latest in PC technologies right inside Best Buy stores," a company representative said. "As part of this... Read more...

In the conclusion of our coverage of the Radeon HD 4850 and 4870 launch, we posted this statement, "...dare we say a $300 graphics card represents an excellent value, from a price point perspective? These cards are definitely going to put significant price pressure on NVIDIA's GTX 200 series." At the time, the GeForce GTX 280 and GTX 260 were selling for upwards of $650 and $400 respectively, and ATI's newly released Radeon, which performed somewhat better than the GTX 260, was introduced at "only" $299.Of course, NVIDIA quickly responded with a hefty round of price cuts that brought the GTX 280's...

NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 200 series of graphics cards have undergone a significant price reduction since they first debuted.  At the time, NVIDIA flexed its GPU muscle with a high-end, single GPU graphics design that their primary competition (AMD) could only compete with by throwing two GPUs at the problem.  As such, NVIDIA initially priced their flagship GeForce GTX 280 at a significant premium; $649 upon its introduction on launch day.  Would you believe us, if we told you back then, that these cards would be selling for $200 dollars less in only about two months time?  Journey...

It looks like the news we broke last week regarding GeForce GTX 200 series pricing has already taken effect at a couple of on-line retailers.  We just did a quick search at NewEgg and found that a handful of GeForce GTX 260 cards are priced between $299 and $339, which puts them right about on-par with the roughly $310 Radeon HD 4870.  Although, the least expensive of the bunch (MSI's $299 GeForce GTX 260) appears to have already sold out.Many GeForce GTX 280 cards have also dropped in price too.  As you can see here, the $499 we quoted last week was right on the money, and a number...

Over the last couple of days, there have been some rumblings around the web that NVIDIA is planning to drop the price of their recently launched GeForce GTX 260 and GTX 280 cards in response to AMD's potent, and more affordable, Radeon HD 4800 series.  The actual numbers quoted have varied, but today we heard some news directly from multiple NVIDIA board partners that pricing on the GeForce GTX 280 may actually be dropping to as low as $499--a significant drop from the $649 launch price. Unfortunately, we were unable to confirm a price for the GTX 260, but we suspect it will hover somewhere... Read more...
NVIDIA has taken the wraps of their latest high-end GPU today and we've got complete coverage for your, from architecture to some impressive benchmark numbers we're sure you'll all enjoy. While the GT200 does borrow heavily from previous generation GPU architectures, it is simply in a class of its own at the moment.  And as you'll see, the jump in performance is similar to what we've all gotten use to and experienced again, when the GeForce 8800 GTX was first introduced.  The first two cards based on the GT200 GPU architecture are the GeForce GTX 280 and GeForce GTX 260.  As their...

NVIDIA has held  a dominant position in the high-end GPU space ever since the introduction of the G80 architecture back in November of 2006.  When the G80 first arrived in the form of the GeForce 8800 GTX and the pared-down GeForce 8800 GTS, the cards were clearly superior to anything else at the time in terms of both performance and features.  As time has passed, rival ATI has closed the gap somewhat with the Radeon HD 3800 series, and has even surpassed NVIDIA in some ways, for example with  DX10.1 and native HDMI with audio support, but through it all NVIDIA offered enthusiast...
