One of the many announcements NVIDIA during its CES event was the crowning of a new flagship graphics card, the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. Not that the regular GeForce RTX 3090 we reviewed last year is long in the tooth by any stretch, but for those who want the fastest consumer GPU on the planet, the Ti model will soon... Read more...
It feels like cruel irony that around the time PC gaming began to experience a resurgence, the availability of graphics cards fell by the wayside. The pandemic combined with new product launches (including new generation consoles that essentially run on PC hardware) and a global shortage came in like a perfectly... Read more...
Sometimes the leaks and rumors are right on the money. We bring that up because as previously tipped in unofficial circles, NVIDIA today introduced an upgraded version of its GeForce RTX 3080 with more GDDR6X memory on board and a few other goodies. It doesn't appear the card will replace the existing model, but sit... Read more...
Looking back at CES week, a whole bunch of companies came ready with wide-ranging product announcements and concepts, including all the big players—AMD, Intel, and NVIDIA among them. But it also appears as though they all left some products unannounced. Like Intel's Core i5-12490F (probably limited to China) and, if... Read more...
It didn't take long for EVGA to announce a custom graphics card based on NVIDIA's just-announced GeForce RTX 3050, the latest addition to its growing line of Ampere GPUs. And actually we're looking at two models from EVGA, including the GeForce RTX 3050 XC and LGeForce RTX 3050 XC Black, both in a relatively compact... Read more...
There is little to no chance that NVIDIA will unveil its next-generation Ada Lovelace GPU at the Consumer Electronics Show this week, but if past leaks and rumors are accurate, it will arrive later this year. It's also anticipated to bring with it a massive performance uplift. How massive? We won't know until Ada... Read more...
After seeing a purportedly unaltered photograph of an ASUS TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3090 Ti graphics card (shown above, click to enlarge), we are more convinced than ever that NVIDIA will be unveiling a new flagship SKU very soon. That's not to say we have any inside information (we don't) or that there's been an... Read more...
LG offers some sleek and powerful laptop models, but none that it would consider a true gaming laptop. Until now, that is—LG on Monday added a notebook model to its UltraGear family (model 17G90Q) and has dubbed it the company's "first gaming laptop." And like its nimble Gram laptops, it sports a "seriously sleek... Read more...
When or if NVIDIA decides to introduce a refreshed GeForce RTX 3080 with more memory than the original SKU remains to be seen. However, if the upgraded graphics card does come to fruition, it might arrive with a beefier upgrade than just some additional GDDR6X slapped on, according to the latest unofficial rumor mill...

A bevy of product announcements are expected at the Consumer Electronics Show next month, and up until now, it was rumored NVIDIA may use the event to introduce refreshed GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti graphics cards. However, there is chatter that NVIDIA may have decided to postpone those cards. In case... Read more...
We've seen a lot of reactions to Intel's upcoming Arc GPUs among hardware enthusiasts. Obviously, you have your die-hard Intel fans who think Arc will be a "first strike is deadly"-style attack on the GPU market. On the flip side of things, we've also seen a few folks who care so little they probably won't even read... Read more...
Whether you will actually be able to find them in stock or not, NVIDIA is supposedly on the cusp of launching as many as three new GeForce RTX 3000 series graphics cards, including a GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. Should that come to pass, it would supplant the non-Ti version as NVIDIA's flagship consumer gaming... Read more...
Have you tried to purchase a graphics card recently? You have our condolences. Supply remains well short of demand, leading to frustrating situations where scalpers can charge obscene premiums on eBay, and retail vendors can force unwanted bundles on consumers when cards are actually in stock. It stinks, but the... Read more...
Everyone's waiting with bated breath for the GPU shortage to abate, with current models perpetually out of stock and gamers paying out the nose for ultra-scarce hardware just to play a bit of Halo. We might see some relief early next year though, in the form of new GPU releases -- especially if TSMC is right about... Read more...
In the land of laptops, NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3080 ranks as its flagship mobile GPU, but perhaps not for long. There appears to be a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti on the horizon. As we wait, it is making the unofficial benchmark rounds on Geekbench, as part of a new HP Omen laptop configuration with an Alder Lake CPU onboard as... Read more...
Forget for a moment that graphics cards are scarcer than unobtanium. We all know the situation by now, and it's still going to be a bit before things change. That said, new products will continue to manifest. For NVIDIA, that means an eventual GeForce RTX 40 series (if sticking with the the present naming convention)... Read more...
Has anybody seen Dominic Toretto lately? We ask because EVGA has confirmed that a shipment of GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards was recent stolen from a truck en route from San Francisco to its Southern California distribution center, and we can't help but conjure up images from the Fast and Furious... Read more...
Nope, the depressing graphics card shortage is not yet over, and that could be the case throughout 2022 as well. Be that as it may, gamers are actually getting their hands on NVIDIA's latest generation GPUs, as evidenced by latest Steam Hardware and Software survey data. Looking at the numbers, it even appears that PC... Read more...
One rumor that continues to persist is that NVIDIA will be adding more onboard memory to some of its existing graphics cards, both from within this generation (Ampere) and at least one model from its last generation (Turing) stack. The upgraded cards will ostensibly begin to land on retail shelves as soon as December... Read more...
It may seem hard to believe, but NVIDIA's flagship GeForce RTX 3090 is already over a year old. The GPU shortage has definitely messed with our sense of time, as it relates to how long certain products have been on the market. Be that as it may, the top card on the Ampere totem pole is nowhere close to being long in... Read more...
NVIDIA might be getting ready to release a new flagship graphics card based on its current generation Ampere GPU architecture. That distinction currently belongs to the GeForce RTX 3090 we reviewed last year, which is essentially this generation's Titan card. However, rumors have been swirling of a Super refresh to...

Have you tried to buy a graphics card recently? Attempting such a thing is a fast track to frustration, because the damn things are never in stock. Not by first-party sellers and at anywhere close to MSRP, anyway. That's what makes Best Buy's occasional restocks so delightful, and if you're wondering when the next one... Read more...
