There's some really good news for crypto-miners this week, though it could be not-so-good news for gamers again. NiceHash, a crypto mining app developer and service provider, announced they have managed to unlock NVIDIA's Light Hash Rate (LHR) GPUs to reach 100% efficiency. Almost a year ago NVIDIA announced their... Read more...
This is a story we've all heard several times by now: next-generation GPUs are going to be even bigger, hotter, and more power-thirsty than the beastly boards of today. It seems like that may be true of some more than others, though. We heard back in the middle of March that NVIDIA could be preparing a top-end Ada... Read more...
The GPU nightmare might not be over just yet, but every month we get a little bit closer to waking up to a stabilized market. Whether we get all the way there before AMD and NVIDIA begin shipping out next-gen graphics cards remains to be seen, and that presents gamers with any interesting quandarydoes it make sens to...

First, a bit of context. It has been rumored for some time that NVIDIA's next-generation graphics cards for gamers after Ampere, known as Ada Lovelace, will be ludicrously power-hungryto the tune of some 600 Watts. As an aside, AMD's RDNA 3-based Navi 30-series GPUs are expected to be quite thirsty as well. These... Read more...
NVIDIA this week formally added a new flagship graphics card to its lineup, the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. It's essentially a thicker and faster version of the non-Ti model, with more CUDA cores and speedier memory to toss at gaming, content creation, and other graphics tasks. While not for everyone, if you're looking for... Read more...
Let's start this story with a bit of context for people who may not have been following along. NVIDIA's extant GeForce RTX 30 series cards currently top out at the RTX 3090, which can draw up to 431 W in our testing. At this year's CES back in January, Team Green announced the RTX 3090 Ti, based on the same Ampere... Read more...
Popular hardware diagnostic tool HWiNFO is updated regularly to add support for new and upcoming devices. Apparently, the next update for HWiNFO is going to add support for NVIDIA's Hopper, Ada Lovelace, and Blackwell GPUs.

In an online event at the end of the month, the tech company will showcase Intel technologies such as Intel Deep Link, XeSS and more. Intel announced earlier this... Read more...
It's not enough that gamers have to compete with cryptocurrency miners for an insufficient supply of desktop graphics cards, now laptop GPUs could become hot commodities for larger scale mining operations too. Providing a path to that potential outcome, a seller in China is hawking modified desktop GeForce RTX 3060... Read more...
Update (2/24/22): When we wrote about the NVIDIA RTX LHR Unlocker tool on GitHub yesterday, we noted it came with caveats and red flags (see below). It just didn't sit right that it required downloading custom drivers from the developer, which at best would have meant it likely would have ruled out anything but... Read more...
Regular Hot Hardware readers and general hardware enthusiasts probably already know this, but SiSoftware is the creator and maintainer of the Sandra utility for Windows PCs. Originally created as a tool to simply capture and display system information (as Windows' own capabilities in that regard were quite primitive... Read more...
How many quarters in a row can NVIDIA set record highs in revenues? At least one more, is apparently the answer.

A year ago, NVIDIA attempted to shift the balance in the ongoing GPU crunch by discouraging cryptocurrency miners from buying some of its newest GPUs. To do this, the company introduced Lite Hash Rate (LHR) cards, with a hash rate limiter the was supposed to reduce crypto-mining performance. The technology handicaps... Read more...
It looks like Intel wants to make a bigger push into the world of cryptocurrency, though not necessarily with its upcoming discrete GPU launch. Instead, the company is on schedule to discuss a new Bonanza Mine chip at the 2022 International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC), which will run from February 20th to... Read more...
Details about Intel's upcoming Arc Alchemist GPUs continue to emerge as we inch closer to the release.
