Gigabyte is expanding its ever-growing laptop family with a couple of new product lines, including the 15.6-inch G5 series and 17.3-inch G7 series. Collectively there are half a dozen SKUs evenly spread out between the two, all six of which pair an Intel 12th Gen Core i5-12500H processor with one of three different... Read more...
When it comes to GPU upgrades, there are two frames of mind right now. One is to wait for next-generation models to manifest, as both AMD and NVIDIA are on track to release new GPUs this year. The other is to choose not to participate in the waiting game and take advantage of recent price drops on a current-generation... Read more...
It's been a long and frustrating road back to widespread GPU availability at prices anywhere close to MSRP, and at this point, we're all clamoring for AMD and NVIDIA to release their next-gen graphics cards. Those are coming, though exactly when still remains to be seen. Related, there are rumors that NVIDIA may end... Read more...
Gamers in need of a GPU upgrade face an interesting quandary—buy a graphics card now, with prices having finally started to approach MSRP levels, or wait for next-generation models, including NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 40 series based on Ada Lovelace. Those who decide to go the latter route may have to wait a little bit... Read more...
For a frustrating minute (figuratively), it seemed like graphics cards would never be in stock at anywhere close to MSRP levels ever again. It's been depressing, to say the least. But over the course of 2022, prices have been steadily falling and are now at the point where the average cost for both GeForce RTX 30 and... Read more...
For the first time in a very long time, you can snag a custom GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card at the launch price NVIDIA set for its Founders Edition model when it debuted in September 2020. That's actually a deal, both in this landscape and considering that this is a factory overclocked model with a custom cooling... Read more...
It wasn't that long ago that we were all using regular old spinny disks for storage. Time was, you really wanted to use dedicated hardware for RAID arrays to get the best performance. Plugging them into your motherboard and using software—or worse, firmware—RAID was seen as the inferior, poor man's option. Using a... 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 quandary—does it make sens to...

Tell your mother, tell your father, tell your friends and everyone you know, the the Great Graphics Card Shortage of 2020-2022 is finally over! Okay, that's being a tad dramatic, and not wholly accurate. However, the situation is definitely improving, to the point where NVIDIA and its hardware partners have kicked off... Read more...
Galax's collection of Hall of Fame OC Lab Edition graphics cards are stunning beauties, and not just on the outside. Japanese overclocker Duck OC managed to get his hands on the latest variant, the Galax GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Hall of Fame OC Lab Edition, and promptly removed the water cooling block for an impromptu...

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...
It took a minute, but the wait for NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3090 Ti to arrive is officially over. NVIDIA announced the launch of its new flagship graphics card today, calling it the "very fastest GPU on the planet." NVIDIA's referring to the consumer space, of course, and will get no argument from us—up until today, that... Read more...
The number of gamers chugging along on pre-RTX graphics hardware is disheartening, but it's impossible to blame the gamers themselves given the state of the market in the last few years. Whatever theory you subscribe to, whether it's the fault of miners, coronavirus, scalpers, malicious market manipulation, or some... Read more...
Unofficially, NVIDIA is expected to launch its GeForce RTX 3090 Ti graphics card next Tuesday, March 29. Should that happen, we'll have concrete details to share in just a matter of days. Until then, the bulk of information is still coming from the leaks and rumors scene, which today supposedly exposed MSI's Suprim X... Read more...
NVIDIA kicked off its GTC 2022 event this week with a flurry of announcements, highlighted by its Hopper GPU architecture and 144-core Grace CPU Superchip. It was an absolute blitz, in terms of everything unveiled so far. Adding to the pile, NVIDIA is expanding its lineup of workstation GPUs with the RTX A5500 in... Read more...
At the heart of every autonomous machine, modern industrial robot, and automated manufacturing apparatus is some form artificial intelligence. These things are amazingly complex, too—not only are there models to train, but there are sensors to interpret and reactions to formulate. NVIDIA has been at the forefront of... Read more...
It seems increasingly likely NVIDIA will launch its GeForce RTX 3090 Ti on March 29, some two and a half months after teasing the new flagship consumer graphics card at the Consumer Electronics Show. We don't have any first-hand knowledge of a March 29 launch, but there's plenty of smoke, and you know they say about... Read more...
It's been around two months since NVIDIA teased a new flagship graphics card at CES, the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, so where the heck is it? Last we heard from NVIDIA is that it would be in touch when it has more information to share. Officially, there's nothing new to offer up. Unofficially, however, the new flagship is... 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...
The GeForce RTX 3050 8GB, as we (and everyone else) reviewed it, is based on the GA106-150 GPU. That's a cut-down version of the very same GA106 GPU used in the RTX 3060 and the professional-grade RTX A2000. If that's the case, then why does it come with a PCIe 4.0 x8 interface instead of the x16 interface that those... Read more...
Back at CES, NVIDIA announced a flurry of new mobile and desktop GPUs, including a new flagship SKU—the mighty GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. There was not a whole lot of information to share at the time, other than a few TFLOPs numbers and the promise to share more details by the end of the month. It's been about a month and a...

Best Buy restocks are your best chance at scoring a Geforce RTX 30 series graphics card at MSRP, but the latest one carried a $199.99 caveat.
