If you have an NVIDIA GPU in your Windows rig – like the new Super family of GeForce RTX graphics cards -- now might be a good time to update your graphics driver to the latest version. NVIDIA has pushed out a new update for its graphics drivers that address a total of five security issues within Windows. The least serve of the security issues is CVE‑2019‑5687, which involves taking advantage of the kernel mode layer handler (nvlddmkm.sys) for DxgkDdiEscape. It is possible to obtain improper permissions which can result in a denial of service attack. The most sever exploit, with a CVSS V3 base score of 8.8, is CVE‑2019‑5683. According to NVIDIA, it involves a vulnerability in... Read more...

NVIDIA has always incorporated a cornucopia of performance metrics into its GeForce Experience software allowing users to monitor GPU clock speeds, boost performance and capture game footage (among other things). Now, the company is introducing a new utility into its software suite called FrameView. FrameView is being announced alongside NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super -- you can read the HotHardware review here. The utility gives you a wealth of information in the form of an overlay on your display, although it specifically zeroes in on measuring performance and power utilization of your current graphics hardware.  As you are playing or benchmarking a game,...

NVIDIA appears to have something waiting in the wings to take on a looming Navi threat from AMD. The company has posted a teaser video for an upcoming product that could be unveiled next week at Computex 2019.  NVIDIA isn't really giving us much to go on with the teaser, but the video is entitled "Something super is coming..." and the word "SUPER" is lit up at the end. So, what exactly does NVIDIA have lined up for gamers with this release? We heard rumors last week that NVIDIA would be releasing a refresh of its Turing-based GeForce RTX and GTX graphics cards. Reports indicated that we'd see boosted GPU clock and GDDR6 memory speeds to further increase performance. NVIDIA’s Turing... Read more...
A couple of weeks back, NVIDIA launched the latest edition to its Turing-based GPU line-up, the GeForce GTX 1650. As its name suggests, the GeForce GTX 1650 is similar to the recently-released GeForce GTX 1660 and 1660 Ti, but it is powered by a different GPU with somewhat tamer specifications, which results in a lower price point as well. We’ll dig into the specifics in just a moment. As was the case with the GeForce GTX 1660 and 1660 Ti, there will be no Founder’s Edition version of the GeForce GTX 1650 arriving on store shelves. Instead, NVIDIA is relying on their add-in board partners to seed the market this time around. The card we’ll be looking at today is one the higher-end... Read more...
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...
Huawei is perhaps best known as the second largest smartphone manufacturer in the world. The Chinese company recently surpassed Apple's marketshare despite difficulties cracking the U.S. market. The company has enjoyed strong demand for their products internationally, thanks to competitive pricing and premium designs. We have previously reviewed Huawei's MateBook X Pro and Matebook D notebooks and found both to be solid values and worthy of recommendation.  At CES this year, Huawei introduced its newest ultrabook, the Matebook 13. We took it for a spin to see how it compares to Huawei's other offerings, and the competition. The MateBook 13 comes standard with a Intel Core i5-8265U clocked... Read more...
Post launch, NVIDIA’s board partners ramped-up their custom GeForce RTX designs relatively quickly. It’s not uncommon for some of the larger, premiere partners to have custom cards ready on launch day, but with the GeForce GTX series, some of them had literally dozens of different cards at the ready. Gigabyte didn’t hit the ground running quite as hard as some others right on launch day, but WOW has the Taiwanese manufacturer since hit its strike and shipped a wide array of GeForce RTX cards. The company’s website lists no less than 26 GeForce RTX 20-series graphics cards, including everything from small form factor mini-ITX models, on up to factory-overclocked, water-cooled...

NVIDIA has been busy getting Game Ready drivers for Windows PCs ready for the launch of the highly anticipated Battlefield V from Dice and EA. Battlefield V launches on November 20 and NVIDIA notes that ahead of the game launch, its driver to support DXR ray tracing is also now available for download. NVIDIA says that its Game Ready Drivers are typically available on or before launch day for major titles, to give GeForce gamers the best experience possible, though some wondered if ray tracing would be supported day 1. This announcement apparently brings things a bit more in focus.  The reason NVIDIA launch drivers so close to the launch of the game is to give engineers at the company... Read more...
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...

A few weeks back, at an event just prior to the Gamescom kick-off in Cologne, Germany, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang officially unveiled the company’s initial GeForce RTX 2000 series graphics card line-up, based on its new Turing GPU microarchitecture. Jensen discussed a number of the cards’ new features and capabilities, including real-time hardware accelerated ray tracing, a new deep learning assisted anti-aliasing technology dubbed DLSS, and he covered some specific speeds and feeds regarding the upcoming GeForce RTX cards themselves. Many other deeper technical details regarding the Turing GPU microarchitecture were kept closer to the vest and revealed only to smaller group of... Read more...
Despite the fact that NVIDIA has kept tight-lipped about its upcoming Turing-based GeForce graphics cards, it really does seem like the worst-kept secret by this point. More information is starting to trickle out, and unfortunately for NVIDIA, its own partners are doing that leaking. Today, we learn of the specs of the so-called GeForce RTX 2080 Ti - notice the "RTX" there in place of "GTX". If it proves true, and it seems more and more likely that it is, then the GTX name is gone - at least in the high-end. At the professional graphics conference SIGGRAPH, which took place in Vancouver last week, NVIDIA claimed that RTX was the most monumental shift in graphics since the introduction of CUDA...

To the delight of anyone who's been eying a new graphics card for a while, there seems to be a definitive end in sight to the price-gouging supply/demand effect in the GPU market. In recent months, mining has seemingly died down quite a bit, as a result of cryptocurrency values likewise taking a major turn for the worse. Currently, crypto values are low enough that for the vast majority of people, mining is much less lucrative than it was even just a few months ago, with the most ardent miners continuing along in hopes that the value of their coins of choice increase over time. Some of those miners may not even be using GPUs, but instead dedicated ASICs, lifting even more load off of the GPU... Read more...
After a seemingly endless period of being unable to find a modern graphics card in stock without having to pay an outrageous markup, supplies are finally stabilizing to the point that we're starting to actually see "sane" pricing creep into the mainstream. NVIDIA is touting this good fortune for gamers and has its full range of GeForce GTX 10 Series Founders Edition cards available from its online store. The Founders Editions of the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti ($699), GTX 1080 ($549), GTX 1070 TI ($449), GTX 1070 ($399), and GTX 1060 ($299) are available to ship within a week's time, limit 2 per customer. Just a few months ago, GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1080 Ti graphics card were selling for over... Read more...
