It has been widely expected for the past two months that NVIDIA would be releasing a new lower-end graphics card based on its Pascal architecture, and after a few leaks and a lot of rumors, the company finally coughed up the confirmation last week. This release will be a bit of a one-two punch for NVIDIA, as it'll be tackling AMD's Radeon RX 460 and 470 series head-on with its GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, and it also fills an even lower tier with its GTX 1050. The GTX 1050 Ti should prove to be a great 1080p gaming card, with some potential for 1440p gaming in certain titles (most likely MOBA-esque). With... Read more...
If you're a fan of having multiple graphics cards powering your gaming PC, you should be looking forward to what's possible with DirectX 12 and its intrinsic multi-GPU features. In essence, multi-GPU should work beautifully, without any of the caveats we've seen with certain configurations in the past. To give us some insight on what to expect from DX12's implementation of multi-GPU, AMD's Scott Wasson, Senior Manager, Product Marketing at AMD, offers a video walk-through of the technology, putting it in simple terms we can all understand. It's well worth a watch if you are able to afford... Read more...
Rumor has it AMD is planning a dual-GPU graphics card based on its forthcoming Vega 10 architecture that's due out next year. The card will be aimed at the professional market (initially, at least) where it will serve up an impressive amount of power for professional level content creation and things such as deep neural learning and artificial intelligence.In a previous leak that laid out AMD's GPU architecture roadmap, Vega was pegged for a 2017 launch. It's said to feature 64 Compute Units, 24 TFLOPs of 16-bit computing power, and a 225W TDP. Assuming AMD sticks with 64 compute cores per compute... Read more...
AMD's hardware partners are starting to showcase custom versions of its Radeon RX 480 graphics card with fancy cooling solutions, overclocked specs, and bits of bling. We've already seen glimpses of what ASUS and MSI have in store, and now there are leaked images of custom cooled Radeon RX 480 card from XFX.It's equipped with a two-fan cooler that runs the length of the card. XFX's logo sits on the topside and lights up when the card is running, adding some visual flair to the non-reference card. And over on the other side of the card is a snazzy looking backplate with several poked holes, presumably... Read more...
We reported over the weekend that a few different vendors have been teasing their upcoming GeForce GTX 1060 models, which for an unreleased card is quite interesting, but it has helped increase the momentum of NVIDIA's hype train. Now, ZOTAC has decided to get in on the action by announcing its own models that are going to cater to those with SFF builds: two ITX versions of the GeForce GTX 1060. Unfortunately, ZOTAC hasn't been able to actually show us what its ITX models look like yet, but an example of what the company's GeForce GTX 960 ITX edition looked like last generation can be seen below....

It's been quite an eventful week since AMD took the veil off of its latest graphics card, the Radeon RX 480. Right out of the gate, murmurs of issues began to surface around the internet, largely focusing on the amount of power that gets pulled through a motherboard's PCIe slot. While AMD acknowledges that this is happening, it has continued to reassure us all that there's no actual problem. As we reported just the other day, a fix is en route, in the form of an updated driver. That should have been here by now, but AMD is taking its time on this one, and now promises that we'll see it within the... Read more...
AMD is working on a driver fix that will address the power draw of the Radeon RX 480, its first Polaris part and a graphics card we determined is easily the best value in its price segment (see our full review for more in-depth coverage). The driver, Radeon Software 16.7.1, is in the final testing stage and will release to the public within the next 48 hours, AMD said in the wee hours of the morning. The Radeon RX 480 was designed to give gamers a potent and affordable option for VR gaming. Pricing starts at $199 for the 4GB model and $239 for the 8GB variant, both of which represent excellent...

It's been discovered that some Radeon RX 480 graphics cards are pulling more power from the PCI-Express slot than what is allowed by spec, which is 75W. In theory, going over spec could damage lower end motherboards and there have already been some claims of that happening. As a result, AMD is working on an updated driver to fix affected cards. We don't have the tools to check for PCIe power draw, but we've been putting the Radeon RX 480 through its paces with two different BIOS revisions, both at stock speeds and overclocked. After hours of benchmarking, we've yet to run into any stability issues... Read more...
Remember that scene when Al Pacino playing the part of Scarface famously said, "Say hello to my little friend!"? Well now NVIDIA is bringing out the big gun in PCI Express form in what it considers the "most advanced data center GPU ever built," the Tesla P100, a crazy fast GPU accelerator based on NVIDIA's powerful Pascal architecture built on a 16nm FinFET manufacturing process. This is the second iteration of the Tesla P100, the first of which NVIDIA unveiled during GTX 2016 a couple of months ago. Though it's built on a fancy 16nm FinFET process, the GP100 GPU inside the Tesla P100 is quite... Read more...
It's shaping up to be an exciting summer for PC gamers. First NVIDIA threw down the gauntlet with its Pascal cards, the muscular GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070, both of which are faster than a Titan X, and then AMD launched Polaris in mid-range form with the Radeon RX 480. Normally a mid-range part wouldn't be all that exciting, especially when the competition is wielding a couple of high-end solutions, but the Radeon RX 480 is making waves because of its price-to-performance ratio. It's based on a pretty remarkable GPU, one that's smaller than what you might have been expecting. Same goes... Read more...
Building your own computer can be an extremely satisfying experience, but that doesn't mean that anyone has to shrug off potential improvements that would make that experience even smoother, right? Have you ever wanted to, for example, make the motherboard and graphics card into a single unit? If you didn't, the folks at Colorful did, and the result is one of the least colorful motherboards out there, the B150-GP104: To accommodate such a powerful graphics card into a motherboard design, Colorful had to make some obvious tweaks to the overall design. Gone are full-sized PCIe slots, for example.... Read more...
AMD launched its very first Polaris-based graphics card yesterday, the Radeon RX 480, and it has the potential to open up VR gaming to a wider audience. That's because it's priced at just $199, making it accessible to a mainstream audience while bringing enthusiast class performance to the VR party. It was an exciting announcement, but one that lacked product shots. That is, until now.Since a picture is worth a thousand words, we thought we'd give our keyboard a break and share a handful of press photos showing off the new card. Feel free to click on any/all of them to enlarge for a higher resolution... Read more...
We're all lusting over NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card and dreaming of having two of those beasts configured in SLI, but for the more frugal enthusiast, the GeForce GTX 1070 can't be ignored. It's the other graphics card NVIDIA introduced as part of its impressive Pascal launch, and to followup with that, we now have specifications to share. The more affordable GeForce GTX 1070 is a monster card in its own right, one that wields a 16nm GP104 GPU with 7.2 billion transistors. It also boasts 1,920 CUDA cores with base and boost clockspeeds of 1,506MHz and 1,683MHz, respectively, along with... Read more...
Could there be a better way to end the work week than being introduced to a new generation of graphics cards? It appears that's what NVIDIA has in store—the GPU maker sent out a Twitter message inviting the public to tune into a special event that it plans to stream live on Twitch tomorrow. If you work a typical 9-5 shift, you won't have to worry about missing the event live. It kicks off at 6 PM Pacific (9 PM Eastern), so as long as your commute is under an hour long, you should be home in time to see what NVIDiA has up its sleeve. In the meantime, we have some guesses, all of which start with... Read more...
