Last week, it was reported that some gamers were having problem with GeForce Game Ready 397.31 WHQL-certified drivers, which marked the first release to drop support for 32-bit operating systems and Fermi-based GPU hardware. Despite the streamlined package with old cruft expunged, many GeForce GTX 1060 owners complained that the drivers resulted in their PCs experiencing reboot loops during install. The issue has been well-documented by users on the official GeForce forums, and NVIDIA has now provided an official response to those that have encounter problems.

The PC gaming market continues to grow, thanks in part to the increasing popularity of eSports. While Lenovo is best known for its Thinkpad and Yoga family of notebooks with legendary reliability and slick form factors, it was time the company got serious about gaming. So, Lenovo took the plunge and launched a new sub-brand at CES this year – Legion. The new Legion family of gaming notebooks include the entry-level Y520, mid-level Y720, and high-end Y920. Lenovo sent over the mid-level 15.6-inch Legion Y720 series for us to check out, which provides a step up in build quality over the entry-level... Read more...
As the most dominant platform for digital game distribution, Steam is a great indicator of what is trending among gamers. It also helps that Valve surveys the landscape each and every month and makes its data available to the public. In doing so, we can see that Steam gamers overwhelmingly chose NVIDIA hardware over AMD or Intel for graphics chores through the end of June 2017.By the end of June, NVIDIA accounted for a dominating 63.61 percent of graphics card usage by Steam gamers. That is more than AMD (20.5 percent) and Intel (15.54 percent) combined, and you can throw the catch-all "other"... Read more...
Last night, NVIDIA made waves with the announcement of the long-anticipated GeForce GTX 1080 Ti for gaming enthusiasts. The new graphics card has a GP102 core, 11GB of 11Gbps GDDR5X memory, and has peak compute performance that is slightly ahead of the Titan X, while offering a $500 lower price tag. But now that a new gaming Titan has entered the fray, what happens with the current GeForce GTX 1080? Thankfully, NVIDIA is instituting a price cut, which sees the GeForce GTX 1080 falling from $599 to just $499 effective immediately. When it comes to the GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition, it will receive... Read more...
NVIDIA hit a home run with its Pascal GPU architecture, which is a savory combination of performance and power efficiency. Depending on the part, there can be some impressive overclocking headroom available as well. That was certainly case when teams of overclockers armed with a GALAX GeForce GTX 1060 Hall of Fame (HOF) Edition graphics cards pushed Pascal past 3GHz, nearly doubling the card's base clock.Pascal GPUs are already some of the highest clocked graphics chips in existence. Getting to 3GHz and beyond, however, is out of reach for the average person. It requires a willing card, overclocking... Read more...
A name synonymous with PC gaming rigs is once again back in the fray with a new high-powered notebook. Today, Dell announced the all-new Alienware 13, which is being billed as the world’s first 13-inch class notebook with VR capabilities. The Alienware 13 may be the smallest notebook in the family (it’s even thinner than the previous generation), but it still packs quite a punch. The machine can be equipped with quad-core H-Series Intel Core processors (up to a Core i7-6700HQ) and most importantly, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GPU. The notebook’s 13.3-inch display can be had in three resolutions:... Read more...
PC manufacturers are increasingly turning their attention to gaming notebooks, empowering them with blazing fast processors and state-of-the-art graphics cards. No longer must notebooks place second fiddle to hulking desktops — instead, mobile warriors can now enjoy the same fruits as their more stationary brethren. Such is the case with Origin PC’s EVO15-S, which is a 15-inch class gaming notebook measures just 0.69-inches thick and weighs just under four pounds (3.96-pounds to be exact). Mobile gamers will be greeted with a 15.6-inch 1920x1080 IPS anti-glare display, that is powered by an NVIDIA... Read more...
NVIDIA just announced a new, cheaper variant of its Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card. While the standard GTX 1060 comes with 6GB of memory and retails for $249, NVIDIA is launching a 3GB variant that costs just $199. All other specs remain the same, which means that you’ll find 1152 CUDA cores, a base clock of 1506MHz, a boost clock of 1708MHz, a 192-bit memory interface and a TDP of 120 watts. NVIDIA does note, however, that the GTX 1060 6GB is on average about 5 percent faster than its new 3GB counterpart. On the other hand, NVIDIA is also quick to point out that the GTX 1060 3GB is...

If you’ve already read Marco’s excellent analysis of the GeForce GTX 1060, then you know that NVIDIA has produced a compelling graphics card for the mainstream market that offers respectable performance and extremely low power consumption (and if you haven’t read the review, you can find it here). And following the official reveal of a new GeForce card came a flurry of announcements from NVIDIA’s graphics partners; all of which are looking corner the market with multiple variants catering to the widest pool of gamers. So far, we’ve seen numerous entries from ASUS, MSI, EVGA and Gigabyte (among... Read more...
NVIDIA and AMD have locked horns on the mid-range battlefield for graphics cards, the latter with its $200 (4GB) and $239 (8GB) Radeon RX 480, and the former responding with its $250 GeForce GTX 1060 ($300 for the Founder's Edition). Of course, it's the custom cards that are most interesting, and though the GTX 1060 is just two days removed from an official unveiling, companies like Gigabyte and ASUS are already teasing their own variants.Starting with ASUS, you can expect several custom versions of the GeForce GTX 1060, three of which it teased on its Republic of Gamers Facebook page. They include... Read more...
NVIDIA is launching an all-out assault on AMD in the PC graphics segment. In May, NVIDIA released the new graphics king: the GeForce GTX 1080. The company followed up on that beastly chip in June with slightly cut down GeForce GTX 1070. That trickledown effect is now reaching the mainstream market with the arrival of the GeForce GTX 1060. The GTX 1060 can be seen as a direct response to the AMD Radeon RX 480, which offers a ton of performance at the $200 price point. While still built using a 16nm FinFET process, the GP106 core on the GTX 1060 features 1280 CUDA cores; exactly half that of the... Read more...
