At this point, it’s not a matter of if, but when NVIDIA will drop its GeForce GTX 1660 Ti on the gaming community. We’ve seen the leaked specifications, board shots, up close TU116 Turing GPU images, retail boxes and even limited benchmarks. Now we’re receiving another round of benchmarks for the unreleased graphics card courtesy of hardware leaker TUM_APISAK. He took to Twitter to post the following benchmark results for the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti in Ashes of the Singularity (AOTS). With all cards running at 1080p resolution with the “Crazy” preset, this is how they stacked up: GeForce GTX 1660 Ti: 4800 GeForce RTX 2060: 5500 GeForce GTX... Read more...
ASUS is cranking up the performance with its latest TUF Gaming notebooks: the FX505 and FX705. Not only are these machines backed by potent gaming hardware -- including Intel Coffee Lake processors up to an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GPU – but they are also incredibly durable thanks to MIL-STD-810G certification. The FX505 comes with a 15.6-inch NanoEdge display, while the FX705 enlarges the display to 17.3 inches. Whichever you choose, you'll be greeted with a Full HD panel with a refresh rate of 144Hz and 100 percent sRGB coverage. As previously mentioned, those display are backed by a GeForce GTX 1060, but the GeForce GTX 1050 is available on entry-level systems. Customers will have a choice... Read more...
NVIDIA's add-in board (AIB) partners are starting to update their product catalogs with updated GeForce GTX 1060 graphics cards sporting faster GDDR5X memory. Palit is the latest to jump on the bandwagon with its GeForce GTX 1060 GamingPro OC+ (NEB1060U15J9-1045D), and unlike the Gigabyte card we spotted yesterday, Palit lists the memory speed and bandwidth. If this is the first you are hearing of GDDR5X memory on a GeForce GTX 1060, don't fret, you haven't been living under a rock. The faster memory was only recently added as an option on the mid-range card, and it arrived without any fanfare from NVIDIA—the GPU maker quietly updated its GeForce GTX 1060 product page to reflect "6GB GDDR5/X"...

Around a week ago, NVIDIA quietly updated its GeForce GTX 1060 product page to include GDDR5X memory as an option, meaning there is yet another version of one of the most popular mid-range graphics cards out there. When would we start to see new cards sport the upgraded memory? Right now, as it turns out. Gigabyte wasted no time implementing GDDR5X memory onto a custom cooled model, the GeForce GTX 1060 G1 Gaming D5X 6G. For anyone who is not familiar with the GeForce GTX 1060 line, it's primarily available in 6GB and 3GB variants, though there is also a 5GB model floating around in China. All of them use GDDR5 memory, clocked at either 8Gbps or 9Gbps. The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti and GeForce GTX... Read more...
NVIDIA is all about its GeForce RTX series with real-time ray tracing and DLSS support right now, but rumors of AMD getting ready to introduce a refreshed Polaris GPU may have prompted to the company to upgrade one of its Pascal parts. So far there has not been any official announcement or fanfare, but a visit to NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1060 product page shows that some models are now shipping with GDDR5X memory. For anyone keeping count, that now makes four different GeForce GTX 1060 models. They include a 3GB model that uses GDDR5 memory clocked at 8Gbps, the original GeForce GTX 1060 with 6GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 8Gbps, a later revision of the 6GB model with the GDDR5 memory goosed to 9Gbps,...

AMD and NVIDIA both support game smoothing technologies that, in simple terms, match the refresh rate of a monitor with the GPU so that frames stay in sync. The former supports FreeSync, an open standard, and the latter promotes its own G-Sync solution. Normally you can't mix and match technologies, though in some circumstances, you can. If you're reading this, you probably know already that to use G-Sync, you need a G-Sync monitor paired with a GeForce graphics card or mobile GeForce GPU. Likewise, enabling FreeSync requires a supported a monitor and a Radeon graphics card or GPU. The lack of interoperability means going all-in with either technology. Over on Reddit, however, user "survfate"... Read more...
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. NVIDIA Customer Care representative ManuelGuzmanNV wrote: We will be releasing a new driver very soon with a fix for this. I... Read more...
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 Y520 without going all-in with the beefier 17.3-inch Y920. The headlining feature of the Legion Y720... 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" (0.35 percent) in there as well.The gap in market share is not difficult to understand. NVIDIA hit a... 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 an even bigger price cut — $150 — taking it down to $549. Likewise, the GeForce GTX 1070 Founders... 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 know-how, and lots of liquid nitrogen—nobody's pushing Pascal to 3GHz on air.The GALAX GeForce... 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: 1366 x 768 (TN), 1920 x 1080 (IPS) and 2560 x 1440 (OLED). It’s the latter touch panel, however, that... 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 GeForce GTX 1060 GPU (6GB). The onboard GTX 1060 also means that the EVO15-S is VR-ready, capable... 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 still roughly 10 percent faster than the AMD Radeon RX 480 8GB. With that being said, two graphics... Read more...
