NVIDIA is hoping that applying a hash rate limiter to some of its graphics cards will help get more units in the hands of actual PC gamers, rather than miners, who the company is serving with CMP HX parts. The newly minted GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is one of those cards. It is not a great option for mining Ethereum... Read more...
HP is treating gamers to a handful of new and improved laptop options, including the first Omen to sport a 16.1-inch display, an Omen 17 that promises to deliver desktop-grade gaming on the back of up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 GPU, and the first offering as part of its brand new Victus line "with a distinctive...

Hey, good news everyonethe GPU shortage is over! Just kidding, you still can't find a graphics card in stock (not from a first-party seller at a fair price, that is). I know, I know, what an insensitive intro, my apologies. However, there is actually some good news, related to GPUs. Ethereum is aiming to become much... Read more...
The consensus on the internet seems to be that the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti will be arriving relatively shortly on the consumer market. However, these new cards won't just bring increased gaming performance compared to the GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3070, respectively; they will also deliver... Read more...
It is a miserable time now for securing PC gaming hardware like graphics cards and high-end processors. Securing AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards have been particularly troublesome due to demand from gamers and crypto miners. The supply issue has been compounded by people... Read more...
AMD has not yet ported its second generation Radeon DNA (otherwise known as RDNA 2) graphics architecture to the mobile side of things yet, but you can bet it will happen. A launch might even be right around the corner. Potential proof of this can be seen in a breakdown of AMD's latest GPU driver, which references a... Read more...
Mining cryptocurrency is just one small part of the problem that plagues the semiconductor industry related to chip shortages, with the increased demand for GPU compute power. However, NVIDIA has been catering to this market in hopes of alleviating demand pressure on gaming graphics cards with its CMP HX family of... Read more...
Several of NVIDIA's hardware partners have seemingly tipped the pending launch of a new Ampere SKU for gaming, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. Perhaps the strongest bit of evidence is a recently leaked photo of a pallet of supposed MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Ventus 3X OC graphics cards being prepped for shipment from China to... Read more...
We reported earlier this week that NVIDIA would ship a new revision of the GeForce RTX 3060 desktop GPU -- GA106-302 -- that will put more stringent measures in place to cripple mining for cryptocurrencies like Ethereum (ETH). While the newest GeForce RTX 3060 offerings will likely be the first of these fortified... Read more...
So far, NVIDIA has released just three mobile Ampere GPUs for laptops, those being the GeForce RTX 3080, GeForce RTX 3070, and GeForce RTX 3060. Within each of those main tiers, OEMs have a million and one combinations to work with (rough estimate), leading to a dizzying array of GeForce RTX 30 mobile GPU configs... Read more...
Armed with unlimited funds, we would all opt for the fastest hardware available, cost be damned. Money does not actually grow on trees (not directly), however, hence the need for cheaper options. NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce RTX 3050 mobile GPU will help fill that need, and if recently leaked specifications are any... Read more...
When it comes to OEM system builders, AMD has been a bit like Rodney Dangerfield, in that it sometimes can't "get no respect," to quote the former comedian (RIP). The company's Zen architecture has been a game changer, though, especially its latest generation Zen 3 CPUs. They are so enticing, there is a rumor Razer... Read more...
We loathe to be the bearer of bad news, but MSI has apparently decided it is going to jack up the prices of graphics cards amid tight supply. The silver lining, we suppose, is that actually finding a graphics card in stock is tougher than winning a fight with an armed grizzly bear, using just your bare hands. In other... Read more...
There's a crazy rumor floating around the Twittersphere concerning NVIDIA's dedicated cryptocurrency mining GPU family. As you recall, NVIDIA announced thefour-SKU CMP HX familyof mining GPUs back in February, reportedly based on amix of Turing and Ampere GPUs. The highest performing family member is the CMP 90HX...

It is a pretty safe bet that AMD will introduce a range of mobile GPUs based on its latest generation RNDA 2 graphics architectureessentially a porting of the Radeon RX 6000 series over to laptops. Exactly when and what specific SKUs will launch are both wait-and-see things. While we wait to see what emerges from AMD... Read more...
NVIDIA said that its firstCMP HX GPUswould begin shipping during Q1 2021, and it appears that at least one retailer is jumping the gun on sales. Retailer Microless listed the Palit CMP 30HX (part number NE630HX017J9-1160X) earlier this week but quickly removed the listing. The CMP 30HX isreportedly based on Turing... Read more...
Last week we learned that NVIDIA'sEthereum crypto mining limitermight have possibly been broken. However, we quickly discovered that a GeForce RTX 3060 using theOctopus algorithm with the Conflux alt-coinwas incorrectly cited as mining for ETH. Now, there is more evidence that the inevitable has finally happened... Read more...
When it comes to Ethereum mining, NVIDIA has been getting a bulk of the attention in recent weeks for all the wrong reasons. Its newly released GeForce RTX 3060 has a cryptocurrency mining limiter enabled (crippling performance by up to 50 percent) in hardware/BIOS/drivers, and it's rumored thatfuture GeForce RTX...

In mid-February, NVIDIA announced that it would unleash a new GPU family called theCrypto Mining Processor(CMP HX). To ease some pressure off GeForce RTX 30 supplies, NVIDIA is pushing the CMP HX family as an excellent option for enthusiasts looking to mine for cryptocurrencies like Ethereum. As NVIDIA explained at... Read more...
Before the GeForce RTX 3060 officially launched, NVIDIA made the somewhat surprising announcement that the GPU would have abuilt-in hash rate limiterwhen mining for cryptocurrency. According to NVIDIA, this was done to limit the appeal of the GeForce RTX 3060 to crypto miners and leave more supply for the intended... Read more...
Remember those leaked photos of an upcoming Dell gaming laptop that we wrote about last week?
