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....

There was a lot of hype and excitement surrounding Vega, the latest GPU architecture from AMD, spearheaded by former Radeon Technologies Group boss Raja Koduri (who is now at Intel where, among other things, is working on a discrete gaming GPU). When it arrived, Vega brought parity to NVIDIA's Pascal architecture, which at the time had been on the market for a year. Looking ahead, there is chatter that AMD's next GPU architecture codenamed Navi will not propel the company ahead of NVIDIA in graphics, either. Navi's existence is not a secret by any means, though most of the details surrounding the... Read more...
It appears ASUS is upgrading its Zephyrus gaming laptop with a six-core Coffee Lake-H processor while maintaining a Max-Q version of NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080 GPU. The upgraded model appeared briefly on an online shopping website in the UK. Though it has since been removed, a Google cache of the listing provides a bunch of information, including the laptop's specs and asking price. To start with, the new Zephyrus GX501 model (GX501GI EI005T is the full model name) boasts a Core i7-8750H processor. That is a significant upgrade over the Core i5-7300HQ and Core i7-7700HQ processor options on the... Read more...
If you're looking for a hulking bruiser of a gaming laptop, ASUS is looking for your attention with its Republic of Gamers G703. This is a beastly machine that looks more like a desktop replacement than a truly portable machine, nonetheless, it is loaded to the gills with high-powered hardware on both the processor and graphics front. For starters, the conductor of this orchestra of gaming goodness is a factory overclocked Intel Core i7-7820HK processor, which is clocked at up to 4.3GHz once you take it out of the box (this represents a 10 percent improvement over stock). ASUS has installed its... Read more...
Last week, we heard some rather interesting rumors that NVIDIA was on the verge of releasing a new member in its Pascal family of graphic cards: the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti. Today, we've come across not one, but two separate sources that seem to suggest that the new GPU is right around the corner. The first comes from none other than Gigabyte, which took to its Facebook page to post the following image: Captioned with "Ti will get you too... eventually...", Gigabyte is obviously riffing off the insanely popular film "It", which is terrifying audiences across the globe. In the image, we see a killer... Read more...
NVIDIA’s Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1080 GPU has been around for over a year now, so there’s isn’t seemingly much that could possibly be done to make us all that excited about the chip at this point, right? Well, someone didn’t get that memo to Gigabyte, as the hardware company has announced a genuinely interesting take on the popular GTX 1080 by putting all of that 4K graphics processing power into an incredibly small form-factor. Meet the GeForce GTX 1080 Mini ITX 8G, which crams all of the ferocity of the standard GeForce GTX 1080 (which measures 26.7cm in length) into to a card that measures... Read more...
We’ve come to expect over-the-top gaming goodness when it comes to ASUS’ Republic of Gamers (ROG) family, and the company doesn’t disappoint with the announcement of the new ROG Chimera gaming notebook. The fact that this massive machine features a 17.3-inch display is nothing new, but it is the world’s first notebook panel to sport a refresh rate of 144Hz. ASUS was one of the first out of the gate with a 120Hz panel on a gaming notebook, so it should come as no surprise that the company is once again looking to push the segment forward. The 17.3-inch panel has a display resolution of 1920x1080... Read more...
EVGA is well known in the enthusiast community for its motherboards, video cards, power supplies and countless other PC peripherals (among other things). The hardware company just announced its upgraded SC17 1080 G-SYNC Gaming Laptop (which is quite a mouthful), but we’ll just call it the SC17 for brevity’s sake. As its name implies, the SC17 features a big, gorgeous 17.3-inch 4K NVIDIA G-SYNC panel, which is much appreciated in this class of gaming notebooks. We’ve been seeing 17-inch notebooks “saddled” with 1080p displays for far too long, so it’s nice to see that EVGA has equipped this notebook... Read more...
Radeon RX Vega is nearly here, and to help get the festivities kicked off early, AMD is taking its graphics show on the road. There are three stops on the tour, the first of which occurred yesterday in Budapest, Hungary. Next, AMD will make a stop at PDXLAN in Portland, Oregon (July 21-23) and the Radeon RX Vega will make its official debut later this month at SIGGRAPH 2017 in Los Angeles (July 30). However, we’re here to talk about what happened at last night’s event in Budapest. For AMD enthusiasts that showed up to get their hands on Vega-based hardware, that were greeted with systems that were... Read more...
NVIDIA this morning announced its Max-Q Design initiative, which allows for ultra-thin gaming notebooks that use high-powered graphics cards like the potent Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1080. One of those laptop that adheres to the Max-Q Design directive is the ASUS ROG Zephyrus. The gaming notebook is just 0.7 inches thick and weighs in at under five pounds. The ROG Zephyrus features a 15.6-inch 1080p G-SYNC enabled IPS panel, which can pump its refresh rate up to 120Hz. Like the Acer Predator Triton 700 that we talked about this morning, the ROG Zephyrus also employs a rather interesting design,... Read more...
We’ve seen plenty of gaming excess over the years when it comes to desktop and notebook systems, but the Acer Predator 21 X definitely comes close to taking first prize when it comes to over-the-top gaming goodness (at least on the mobile side). First announced earlier this year at CES, the Acer is finally shipping the massive 21-inch gaming notebook. The only disappointing aspect, well other than its price, is the display resolution of the machine. Even though the gaming notebook features an expansive 21-inch display, the screen resolution is a somewhat disappointing 2560x1080 instead of 4K. However,... Read more...
If you’re a person that likes to satisfy your high-end gaming needs while on-the-go, Razer has updated its most potent notebook – the Blade Pro -- with the power of Intel Kaby Lake. In this case, it means that you’ll find an overclocked Core i7-7820HK quad-core processor to replace the previous Skylake-based Core i7-6700HQ. Razer has also upgraded the Blade Pro’s memory, providing 32GB of DDR4 memory running at 2667MHz versus 2133MHz. When it comes to the graphics subsystem, things haven’t changed, meaning that you’ll find a potent NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 powering a 17.3-inch 4K IGZO display equipped... 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...
