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...

Considering the amount of hype that led to the launch of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX series, it seemed obvious that the cards were going to be mighty elusive once they hit retail. That turned out to be just the case, although perhaps less surprising than the lack of availability was the lack of cards being sold for NVIDIA's suggested price of $999. Whether $999 is a lot of money or not depends on your perspective, but for a new top-end graphics card, it certainly isn't what we've expected, given historical trends. Nonetheless, if you are willing to cough up $999, but not $1,200, your options have been truly limited. Fortunately, EVGA seems to understand that issue, and has finally launched an official...

The staggered roll-out of NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX series of graphics cards continues today with the release of the GeForce RTX 2070. NVIDIA and its partners are at the ready with a wide array of board designs at price points starting at $499. We’ve got a somewhat pricier, all-custom EVGA board on tap for you here that’s packing a dual-fan cooler, configurable RGB lighting, and interchangeable colored accents, the EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 XC. EVGA has a few RTX 2070 cards coming down the pipeline with various cooler configurations and clocks. The EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 XC is actually one of the tamer models, that’s clocked similarly to NVIDIA’s own Founder’s Edition.... Read more...
