NVIDIA may be in the news lately mostly because of its AI prowess, but its GeForce GPUs are still vital to millions of gamers worldwide. The GeForce RTX 5090, the presumed flagship of the upcoming RTX 50 series Blackwell GPU lineup, is looking mighty promising according to some recent rumors.  According to a post... Read more...
Some people have claimed that AI is a fad, or a flash in the pan. It's easy to understand the perspective; the hype around the explosion of generative AI feels similar to the hype around previous fads, like 3D TVs or the metaverse. AI isn't a fad, though. It is already transforming every single part of the tech... Read more...
NVIDIA has been blazing an impressive trail in the world of AI and data center products, reaching heights previously unimaginable. This does not mean it has forgotten its roots, which is in consumer gaming products. With the eventual release of its GeForce RTX 50 series GPUs, information is slowly emerging as to what...

The top-end Ada Lovelace graphics processor, the AD102, sports a 384-bit memory interface. In combination with 21-Gbps GDDR6X memory, this nets the Geforce RTX 4090 a grand 1008 GB/second of memory bandwidth. The lower-end GPUs weren't so fortunate, though. AD103, the chip behind the RTX 4080, drops a full third of... Read more...
The cat is out of the bag, NVIDIA is on an absolute winning streak that has taken the world by storm, as evidenced its latest earnings report. Gaming GPUs with the GeForce RTX 40 series mostly held on with good inventory for gamers. Meaning, its data center GPUs are hot commodities, with demand increasing at an... Read more...
Folks who have been around the hardware scene for a while will likely recall that NVIDIA used to release new GPUs every year, even if they weren't necessarily a new architecture. This went on for quite some time, but in the last decade or so, ever since the relatively-long gap between the Maxwell-based GeForce GTX 900... Read more...
A new leak has revealed that NVIDIA’s future RTX-50 series graphics cards, more specifically the RTX 5090, could receive as much as a 170% performance increase over its RTX 40-series predecessor. The leak highlights key performance increases in several vital areas of NVIDIA’s next-generation GPU architecture... Read more...
You probably already know that AMD's most recent Radeon GPUs are created using chiplets: a single GCD for graphics and compute, and then between three and six MCDs for memory access and caching. Intel hasn't released any consumer GPUs using chiplets yet, but its Datacenter GPU Max—that's the part formerly known as... Read more...
NVIDIA internal GPU codenames typically go something like this: first a G (for "graphics" or "GeForce"), then the first letter of the architecture name, and then three digits. The first digit indicates the architectural revision, the second digit marks the chip revision, and then the last digit suggests the specific... Read more...
What's driving demand for NVIDIA GPUs? Intel and AMD have the #1 and #2 supercomputer spots, respectively, and prices on the company's gaming graphics cards are falling as PC gamers are underwhelmed by mediocre generational improvements since Ampere, launched in 2020. Despite those factors, the company is selling GPUs... Read more...
Is it too early to start talking about NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 50 series? Apparently not, as the rumor mill is buzzing about NVIDIA's eventual next-gen graphics card lineup and the underlying GPU architecture that will succeed Ada Lovelace. Naturally we advise taking this all with a healthy dose of skepticism as the... Read more...
