It appears at least some of EVGA's newly minted GeForce RTX 2060 KO and GeForce RTX 2060 KO Ultra graphics cards are shipping with Turing-based TU104-150 dies, rather than the TU106 dies that other GeForce RTX 2060 cards have used up to this point. It's not clear if this is specific to EVGA, though. In case you missed it, EVGA launched its GeForce RTX 2060 KO models two weeks ago. The cards preceded an official price drop to the regular (read: non-Super) GeForce RTX 2060 family, as NVIDIA has since lowered the cost on its Founders Edition model to $299 on its website. Most custom models on the market are still selling for $330 and up, though we expect that will change in the coming weeks. Why... Read more...
Earlier this week we brought you news that EVGA is launching a cheaper GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card to deliver a knockout punch to the AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT before it even launches. Unfortunately, we didn't have the full picture when our original story went to press. But now everything is coming to light, things are looking much better for gamers, and this could spell trouble for AMD. EVGA has announced that the previously discussed GeForce RTX 2060 KO is actually a series, and not just one card. There will actually be two cards in the series: EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 KO EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 KO Ultra The former is the lowest spec'd of the two, and features a boost clock of... Read more...
This week, AMD announced the new Radeon RX 5600 XT graphics card, which it has proclaimed is the “Ultimate 1080p Gaming Card”. At its heart is a Navi-based GPU delivering 36 compute units, 2304 stream processors and 7.19 TFLOPs compute performance. More importantly, AMD is touting that the Radeon RX 5600 XT delivers superior performance compared to the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti at the same $279 price point. Needless to say, NVIDIA isn't about to take this development sitting down, and word on the street is that it is countering with price cuts for the entry-level RTX GPU: the GeForce RTX 2060. This revelation comes to us via WCCFTech, which laid hands on EVGA's GeForce... Read more...
We recently had the chance to spend some time with the folks at Maingear HQ and built a beautiful, water-cooled AMD Rzyen 3000-based rig. That system was destined for Dave’s lab and has become his daily workhorse – in fact, that rig produced the video you’ll see below. Not long after we took that trip to Maingear though, my personal rig started acting up. I have been rocking an Ivy Bridge-based system for about 7 years now that has made it through multiple OS upgrades and served me quite well. I had been planning to build a new rig for many months, but my current rig had been so reliable, and my personal and professional workloads so intense, I just couldn’t pull the trigger....

AMD's Ryzen 3000 series processors have made a positive impact on the PC enthusiast market, the likes of which we haven't seen in years. From a performance-per-dollar standpoint, AMD's disruptive Zen 2 architecture offers a strong value proposition for new desktop PC builders from all walks of life and for many use cases including gaming, content creation and other workstation-class requirements. In fact, we were so impressed by Ryzen 3000 series processors in our launch review, that we decided we needed to have AMD's new architecture in our production flow here at HotHardware. This also presented us with an opportunity to call upon a few industry friends like Maingear Computers, Gigabyte, EVGA... Read more...
Earlier today, we presented you with our review of the GeForce RTX 2060 Super and GeForce RTX 2070 Super. You can think of both cards as a preemptive strike against the yet-to-be-released Radeon RX 5700, Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition.  Although we suggest that you read our review to get a full idea of how the new Super cards perform, there should probably be some cause for concern from the AMD camp. With that being said, the first round of cards from NVIDIA's OEM partners have been announced, and should be hitting store shelves within the next few weeks. This afternoon, we have entries from EVGA, MSI and Zotac. You should already be familiar... Read more...
Surprise! Amazon is taking preorders for a pair of "Super" variants of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX series graphics cards that have not yet been officially announced. They include the EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 Super XC Gaming and EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 Super XC Ultra Gaming, priced at $599.99 and $499.99, respectively. Officially, these cards do not exist yet. Rumor has it NVIDIA will unveil Super models of its GeForce RTX 2080, 2070, and 2060 next week on July 2, with availability to follow shortly after. The 'leaked' listings on Amazon support that notion—both product pages indicate a release date of July 9. It should also be noted that these listings are actually by Amazon, and not a third-party...

We are only a couple of weeks removed from the launch of the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and NVIDIA is already at it again. This time around, we have yet another affordably-priced, Turing-based GPU to show you all, the GeForce GTX 1660 – sans Ti. As its naming suggest, the new GeForce GTX 1660 is very similar to its more-powerful counterpart; they’re both based on the same GPU, but a few cores and other components have been disabled in the GTX 1660. A handful of other changes have been made with the GeForce GTX 1660 as well, which push the card down a rung in terms of performance, but also bring down the price. We have a couple of GeForce GTX 1660 cards on tap for you here, one from EVGA... Read more...
NVIDIA is expanding its Turing-based GPU lineup today and pushing its latest graphics architecture down into a more affordable price point. Although it does share some similarities with its predecessors, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti we will be showing you here is unlike all of the other Turing-based GPUs that have launched to date in a few meaningful ways. The fact that the card is branded a GeForce GTX, rather than a GeForce RTX, hints at the biggest difference – the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti doesn’t support NVIDIA’s RTX real-time ray tracing technology. What the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti does do, however, is incorporate all of the architectural efficiencies of Turing into an affordable... Read more...
There has been an abundance of leaks pertaining to NVIDIA's as-yet unannounced GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and GeForce GTX 1660 graphics cards, and though the new GTX parts are not yet official, all of the evidence suggests they do in fact exist. If you need further convincing of this, the weekend provided it, in the form of more leaked retail box images and press renders. We'll start with the Galax card, because it is the most interesting one of the bunch. Reddit user Rukey_Lob posted several images of the Galaxy GeForce GTX 1660 Ti packaging, including shots of the front, side, and the text on the back. While this sort of thing is not immune to Photoshopping, it is a bit more difficult than spoofing... Read more...
Shortly after NVIDIA initially launched the first wave of high-end Turing-based GeForce RTX cards, EVGA announced a dizzying array of new graphics cards featuring the new GPU. With that in mind, it should come as no surprise that EVGA did the same when NVIDIA expanded the GeForce RTX family with the more main-stream, GeForce RTX 2060. EVGA already has three RTX 2060s in its line-up, two short-board, single-fan offerings, and a larger, dual-fan model with a GPU that’s clocked significantly higher than NVIDIA’s reference specifications. We’ve got the card in the middle of the stack to show you here today, the EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 XC. This card has a somewhat uncommon form factor,... Read more...
EVGA boldly entered a new product category and launched its first sound card at CES, the aptly named EVGA Nu Audio. The Nu Audio card represents the culmination of a few years of co-development efforts with the folks at U.K.-based Audio Note, makers of high-end audio reproduction equipment. Unlike many sounds cards that tweak and massage source material to produce various effects, EVGA’s goal with the NU Audio card was strictly on quality and playing back source material as close to how the original creators intended, with minimal filtering. To that end, the NU Audio card is packing nothing but top-notch components, right down to its Nichicon solid-state capacitors and audio-grade resistors.... Read more...
EVGA showed off a new motherboard at CES simply called the Z390 Dark. This board was designed with an emphasis on performance and overclocking, and it was recently used by Finland Overclocker Juhani Luumi to set a new 8-core CPU world record on Cinebench. True to its name, the Z390 Dark motherboard is predominantly black, but the board is accented in gold. Thermal performance of the board was a key focus of this boards design, and EVGA placed large heatsinks over the Z390 chipset and the power regulation circuitry. There are a total of 17 digital VRM power phases on the board, all but one of which are devoted to the CPU to ensure a stable flow of power. The board has several overclocking features...

EVGA announced that it will enter the sound card market with its NU Audio card. EVGA partnered with a UK corporation known as Audio Note to engineer and produce the card, and the company claimed that the high quality of this card's components allow it to produce lifelike audio. The NU Audio sound card has a rigid metal exterior that is fairly plain in appearance. The company's name is inscribed alongside the product's name on the card's side in RGB LED lights that support 10 different display modes. At the heart of the card's design is an XMOS xCore-200 DSP that helps to efficiently process the audio and remove the strain from the host processor. A high-performance AKM AK4493 32-bit DAC that...
