It's a terrible time right now for gamers and DIY PC enthusiasts who are looking to build up a new gaming PC. The problem isn’t that the hardware available now is sub-par; we have some fantastic CPUs and GPUs on the market. Unfortunately, as it has been widely reported, the problem is that cryptocurrency miners are gobbling up all the graphics cards, leaving many gamers unable to find a card for an even remotely reasonable price. When you can find a graphics card, the prices are usually multiple times higher than  MSRP. The problem is that supply right now isn't meeting the demand and... Read more...
GPU juggernaut NVIDIA is flying high after announcing blowout financial results for the previous quarter, and so are shares of NVDA in after hours trading as a result. Hot on the heels of reporting a record $2.91 billion in revenue during the fourth quarter, investors responded by sending shares of company up more than 12 percent, offsetting the 5 percent drop in share price for the day before the closing bell today, in what was otherwise another bloodbath on Wall Street. "We achieved another record quarter, capping an excellent year," said Jensen Huang, founder and chief executive officer... Read more...

The side effects of the recent price gouging on GPUs from AMD and NVIDIA is now filtering down to sites that use affiliate links to generate additional revenue. One retailer in particular, Newegg, is cutting off the Video Card category for affiliate linking. Newegg attributes this change in policy to the fact that "Bitcoin has gone mainstream." "The limited nature of these cards have caused a shortage in which supply can never meet demand and thus many users are actively buying these cards as soon as they go in stock," writes Newegg. "So, this means effective in 7 days from now all VGA cards will... Read more...

NVIDIA appears to be gearing up to deliver some new GPU flavor to the mobile gaming market. The only thing we know about this new graphics engine right now comes from a Linux driver changelog that calls out added support for a "GeForce GTX1050 Ti with Max-Q Design." There are no tidbits about clock speeds or other performance details noted in the changelog. The deal with Max-Q Design GPU in laptops is that they are essentially desktop-equivalent configurations but designed to be more power efficient and with better cooling design that allow longer sustained performance over time with quieter...

EVGA typically uses CES to showcase a handful of new or upcoming products, and this year’s show was no exception. EVGA’s suite was packed with an array of graphics cards, motherboards, cases, peripherals, and new cooling products that squarely target enthusiasts, do-it-yourselfers, and gamers. Among the products on display were a monstrous 2,200W power supply and hydro-copper K|NGP|N GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. Above is a quick look at a few of the stand-outs featured in EVGA’s suite. The EVGA 2,200W SuperNova P2 power supply will supplant the company’s previous 1,600W model at... Read more...
Although NVIDIA officially unveiled its Volta-based GV100 GPU over seven months ago, and an unwitting intern may have leaked pictures of the card we’re going to show you here today shortly thereafter, the NVIDIA TITAN V featuring the GV100 GPU began shipping just this past week. The NVIDIA TITAN V targets a very specific audience and is designed for professional and academic deep learning applications, which partly explains its lofty $3,000 price tag. Unlike NVIDIA's previous-gen consumer flagship, the TITAN Xp, the TITAN V is clearly not designed for gamers. But since it features NVIDIA’s... Read more...
Make no bones about it, the new TITAN V is a monster graphics card. We know this from the spec sheet alone—the NVIDIA TITAN V is rocking a Volta GPU underneath the hood, along with a whole bunch of redesigned Tensor cores for deep learning workloads. Looking beyond the spec sheet, a user on Reddit has assembled a collection of links to some early, unofficial benchmarks of the TITAN V, and boy-oh-boy is it fast. We say "unofficial" because there is always the chance these benchmarks are fake. We do not know how many of these cards NVIDIA might have shipped out to reviewers, but however... Read more...
NVIDIA caused a great disturbance in the Force recently, as if millions of gamers suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. We fear something terrible has happened, and they might not be able to get their hands on the glorious Star Wars TITAN Xp Collector’s Edition cards that were announced a few days ago, but arrive today, alongside EA’s Star Wars Battlefront II.Fear not young Padawan. If you can’t gaze upon a Star Wars TITAN Xp Collector’s Edition with your own eyes, we will do our best to convey what it’s like to game on one of these limited edition beasts and witness its customized,...

It's definitely been in interesting week in the world of tech, and during that time, NVIDA issued another blockbuster earnings report. NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang recently talked about his company's quarterly earnings and hit many other topics during an new interview. During the chat, Huang was naturally asked about the biggest news to happen in the GPU market in recent memory: Intel's adoption of AMD graphics for its Kaby Lake-G family of processors.  When asked if this new AMD-Intel partnership would cause NVIDIA to alter its future GPU plans, Huang fired back, "Not really. I think it... Read more...
PC hardware aficionados are no doubt aware of the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti we will be showing you here today. Prior to last week’s official announcement by NVIDIA, information about the card had been leaking for weeks – see for yourself. If you haven’t been keeping up on the scene, the GTX 1070 Ti is NVIDIA’s latest Pascal-powered graphics card for enthusiast gamers, that’s meant to slot in between the GeForce GTX 1070 and GTX 1080, and take down the recently released AMD Radeon RX Vega 56.For the purposes of this article, we got our hands on a pair of GeForce GTX 1070 Ti cards, a Founder’s...

As long as we have been able to cram multiple video cards into our computers, the branding from NVIDIA and AMD had been the same. NVIDIA calls its multi-GPU tech SLI and AMD has coined theirs CrossFire. With the release of the new drivers to allow gamers to put multiple Radeon RX Vega graphics cards inside gaming PCs, that CrossFire branding has been shelved. When AMD announced the new drivers there was no CrossFire mentioned at all, and so PC World asked why. An AMD rep said, "CrossFire isn’t mentioned because it technically refers to DX11 applications. In DirectX 12, we reference multi-GPU... Read more...
Abnormally high GPU pricing has been an issue for a long time now, but things really hit a peak when AMD launched its Radeon RX Vega series last month. Immediately, the graphics cards were nearly impossible to find, and those that were in stock were found with seriously inflated prices - sometimes with a nearly $200 premium due to price gouging merchants playing the supply and demand game. Unfortunately, it also appears that consumers looking at picking up an NVIDIA graphics card are also now starting to feel the burn of a higher street price. While AMD cards are often sought out first... Read more...
