NVIDIA's hardware partners are starting to announce custom cooled versions of the company's GeForce RTX 2070, and soon enough websites will start posting performance reviews. In the meantime, we're left to speculate about performance based on the specs, and whatever leaks there might be. As it pertains to the latter, there is a leaked 3DMark benchmark run that suggests the GeForce RTX 2070 will be faster than the GeForce RTX 1080. For anyone who has not been following the GeForce RTX launch, NVIDIA announced three new cards built around its Turing GPU architecture: GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, GeForce RTX 2080, and GeForce RTX 2070. All three feature dedicated RT cores for real-time ray tracing, or more... 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...
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 next generation GPU architecture are scarce at the moment. Navi has been on AMD's roadmap for quite...

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 current generation of Zephyrus GX501 laptops. We should note that Intel hasn't actually released 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 Anti-Dust Cooling (ADC) system to help keep the system cool, so you won't have to worry about cooking... 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 clown, an image of an Aorus GeForce GTX graphics card, the "Ti" moniker, a wallet and a red balloon... 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 just 16.9cmin length. The reduced dimensions thankfully don’t come with a decrease in performance. Gigabyte... 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 (sorry, 4K lovers), a response time of 7ms, and is backed by NVIDIA G-SYNC technology. Moving past... 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 with a resolution worthy of the gaming muscle lurking within. Powering the notebook is a burly... 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 configured with either a Radeon RX Vega or an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card. According to... 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, in which the Aura RGB-backlit keyboard is pushed all the way to the leading edge of the notebook, completely...

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, when it comes to everything else, the Predator 21 X goes completely bonkers with its specs,... 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 with G-SYNC technology. The display is geared towards gamers and mobile professionals alike with... 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...
If you have been itching for a new gaming computer, ASUS has got your back. ASUS’ Republic of Gamers brand announced that the GT51CH gaming desktop, with 7th Generation Intel Core i7 processors and SLI’d GeForce GTX 1080’s, is now available. The GT51CH gaming desktop's Kaby Lake Core i7 processor allows users to run games on the “Ultra” graphics settings and seamlessly watch 4K UHD videos. GeForce GTX 1080 SLI enable beautiful 4K UHD gameplay, and according to ASUS, the GT51CH performed 60% better than a GeForce GTX 980 SLI-equipped system in development tests. The company also claims it was able run Watch Dogs 2 at ‘Ultra’ graphics settings in 4K UHD at 66 fps. The GT51CH is configurable... Read more...
When it comes to over-the-top gaming hardware, Acer knows how to put on a show. Such is the case with the monstrous Predator 21 X gaming notebook, which is set to launch next month. Announced today at CES, the Predator 21 X is the world’s first curved screen notebook, and as its name implies, it measures a massive 21 inches diagonally. While the sheer size of the display is impressive, its resolution isn’t. We were expecting to see at least a 4K (3840x2160) display resolution, but instead we’re greeted with a resolution of 2560x1080. The IPS panel supports a 120Hz refresh rate and incorporates NVIDIA G-SYNC technology. The Predator 21 X includes not one, but two GeForce GTX 1080 GPUs in SLI,... Read more...
Although it will likely be announced next week at the Consumer Electronics Show, the ASUS ROG GX501 has already leaked. However, the first thing that your eyes lock in the apparent lack of a trackpad and palm rest. Both have been tossed aside to make room for the keyboard which takes up that prime real estate on this notebook. What we’re left with is a rather awkward-looking notebook with a huge blank space above the keyboard. Given what’s lurking beneath the surface, we understand this odd design choice. The ROG GX501 packs in a full-fledged NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 GPU, and does so within a chassis that is just over a half-inch thick. That would explain the shuffling of components and ASUS’...

When Gigabyte was making the rounds with its BRIX Gaming UHD small form-factor PC, we were a bit puzzled by the inclusion of the older NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950 instead of the (at the time) readily available Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1060 or GTX 1070. Apparently, we just needed to wait a few more months, as Gigabyte just leaked a potent follow-up that will more than likely be officially announced at CES 2017 in Las Vegas. The BRIX Gaming GT made a brief appearance on Gigabyte’s website before being taking down. However, the product pages were left up long enough for specs and pictures to be scooped up for all to see. Instead of relying on Maxwell-based GPUs, this new SFF PC goes all-in with Pascal,... Read more...
Colorful just threw down the gauntlet on outrageously large graphics cards with a GeForce GTX 1080 model that occupies four expansion slots. Yes, we said FOUR! It needs that much space because it is lugging a liquid cooling contraption on its back to keep things extra chilly. Users can optionally detach the liquid cooling backplate, but what would be the point in buying a specialized card if the plan is to remove the very thing that makes is specialized?Called the iGame 1080 Kudan, the monster sized graphics card is equipped with three cooling fans on the front. Each one sports a gold color border shaped like a gear, a neat effect that makes the card look like a mechanical contraption rather... Read more...
ASUS’ Republic of Gamers division is back at it again with a new gaming laptop. While not as outlandish and as powerful as the ROG GX800 that we discussed earlier this month, the new ROG G701VI is still an incredible gaming beast that can also double as a potent workstation. At the heart of the G701VI is an unlocked and factory overclocked Intel Core i7 6820HK processor, which can be equipped with up to 64GB of overclocked 2400MHz DDR4 memory (32GB comes standard). ASUS is really pushing the G701VI as virtual reality powerhouse, and we can’t really blame the company given that NVIDIA’s top shelf Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1080 is included to handle your gaming needs. Despite the fact that the G701VI... Read more...
OK, ASUS is just showing off now! The company’s Republic of Gamers division just announced the GX800 gaming laptop which exudes excess at every corner. Just look at this beast: it weighs in at a massive 12.6 pounds, while its liquid-cooling module adds another 10.4 pounds to the mix. Complementing its immense girth is an 18.4-inch 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) display with an anti-glare coating (NVIDIA G-SYNC technology is also baked into the display). Powering the ROG GX800 is an Intel Core i7 6820HK processor that can be overclocked from 3.2GHz to 4.2GHz. This leap in performance is made possible using the Hydro Overclocking System liquid-cooling module. Using a proprietary connector, the Hydro Overclocking... Read more...
There’s no question that NVIDIA built a kickass graphics family with Pascal. From entry-level to the enthusiast class, NVIDIA has delivered compelling GPUs at a wide range of price points. Currently at the top of the Pascal totem pole is the Titan X, which pumps out 11 TFLOPs peak compute performance and comes with 12GB GDDR5X memory onboard. Now that NVIDIA has addressed the budget end of the spectrum with the GeForce GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti, it is once again focusing on the premium segment with the upcoming GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. This big brother to the GTX 1080 is rumored to not only take the place of the ferocious Titan X, but also undercut it in price as well. The Titan X has a MSRP of $1,200,... Read more...
