When we last visited Corsair, the company had acquired Origin PC to beef up its portfolio when it comes to crafting boutique gaming PCs. Today, Corsair has announced updates to its One and One Pro gaming systems that bring 9th generation Intel Core power to the table along with NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics. Starting off with the new additions to the Corsair One family, we have the One i145 and One i164. The One i145 brings an octa-core Intel Core i7-9700K processor to the table paired with a potent GeForce RTX 2080 graphics card. Moving up to the One i164 will get you an upgrade to the Core i9-9900K (8-core/16-thread) with a flagship GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. No matter which system you... Read more...
NVIDIA has a game studio with the sole task of bringing ray tracing effects to old titles to spruce up their looks. Confirmation of plans to ray trace additional classic game comes from a job listing that the company posted looking for someone to join its NVIDIA Lightspeed Studios team. As for what the name of the game the person who lands the job in the listing will be working on, NVIDIA is mum. All the listing says of the game is that it is a title "you know and love, but we can't talk about it here." NVIDIA has shown off Quake II RTX, but the job listing was posted after that game launched, so the listing isn't for someone to work on that game. Scuttlebutt suggests that the game NVIDIA is...

Gigabyte has launched its latest notebook computer and the machine is aimed directly at the content creators out there. The machine is called the Aero 17, and it has a 17-inch chassis in the same space as some other 15-inch offerings. The chassis is 2.1cm thick and offers a Nanoimprint Lithography embossed surface and CNC aluminum cutouts. Cooling was a big deal for Gigabyte; the machine has two large fans that have 71 fan blades each combined with five full copper heat-pipes and 11 air intake/exhaust vents to keep the available Intel Core i9 octa-core processor cool. The Aero 17 has NVIDIA GeForce RTX Studio certification helping creators to edit 4K video and perform heavy 3D modeling tasks... Read more...
Finnish game studio Remedy Entertainment makes some of the finest-looking, quirkiest games around. Perhaps best known for the Max Payne series (but not Max Payne 3, which was developed solely by Rockstar), Remedy has been publishing its games exclusively on Xbox and PC for the last several years. The studio has delivered interesting, story-driven games more recently in the form of cult survival classic Alan Wake and the more recent sci-fi thriller Quantum Break. Both games featured cutting-edge graphics for their respective times. For that reason, maybe it's no surprise that the studio's latest creation, Control, uses the most cutting-edge graphics technology available today, including... Read more...
One of the most popular games ever made is getting a big-time facelift. At Gamescom, NVIDIA announced it has been working with Mojang and Microsoft to bring real-time ray tracing to Minecraft, the world's best selling video game, transforming colorful, block-filled worlds into richer landscapes with realistic lighting effects. This is Minecraft as you have never seen it before, and perhaps never envisioned. Since Minecraft is not particularly demanding to begin with, NVIDIA has opted to refit the entire game with path tracing, a compute-intensive form of ray tracing. In other words, this is full-scene ray tracing and not a hybrid implementation. NVIDIA did the same thing with Quake II RTX, and... Read more...
The final member of NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX Super-series officially arrives today, the GeForce RTX 2080 Super. In case you missed it, a couple of weeks back, NVIDIA launched the GeForce RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super, to preemptively zing AMD in the lead-up to the Radeon RX 5700 series launch. The GeForce RTX Super-series will supplant and eventually replace their original, “non-Super” counterparts once availability dries up. At the top and bottom of the stack, however, the GeForce RTX 2060 and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti will remain. It is in the meat of the 20-series where the Supers reside, with the new GeForce RTX 2080 Super we’ll be showing you here today leading the charge,... Read more...
NVIDIA dropped a hint that something “Super” was coming just prior to Computex and since then a handful of leaks have let the cat mostly out of the bag. Today, however, we can dispel the rumors, officially reveal what NVIDIA’s got coming down the pipeline, and show you exactly what NVIDIA’s Super branding is all about. NVIDIA is overhauling its Turing-based GeForce RTX line-up with an array of “Super” GPUs, specifically the GeForce RTX 2060 Super, RTX 2070 Super, and RTX 2080 Super. In the short term, like two days from now, the GeForce RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super will hit store shelves. The GeForce RTX 2080 Super is coming in a few weeks though, and... Read more...
There have been a lot of SUPER rumors making the rounds over the past month, with the most recent one indicating that the cards would be announced this week. Now a new rumor claims to have pricing details for the entire lineup of NVIDIA GeForce RTX SUPER graphics cards. At the top of the GPU heap is the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER, which is expected to have an MSRP of $799. This is the exact same price as the current GeForce RTX 2080, but the SUPER variant will have more CUDA cores and higher clocks which would make it an even better value. Next up is the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER, which will reportedly debut at $599. Again, this is the same launch price as the GeForce RTX 2070, with performance... Read more...
NVIDIA has something "SUPER" in store for gaming enthusiasts. The company first teased SUPER in the days leading up to Computex 2019, but made no announcements pertaining to this new branding. Over the past few weeks, reports have zeroed in on SUPER referring to a refresh of the GeForce RTX family that was first introduced last fall. A new report is now shedding light on when we might actually see these new GPUs. According to VideoCardz and WCCFTech, NVIDIA is set to announce the new SUPER family as early as next week. However, the report indicates that cards wouldn't actually be available for sale until mid-July. As for pricing, it's expected that the new SUPER... Read more...
Seeing Keanu Reeves make an appearance at E3 to promote Cyberpunk 2077, an upcoming dystopian role playing game in which he is a part of, was a delightful surprise. Less surprising, but no less welcome, is that developer CD PROJEKT RED is working with NVIDIA to support real-time ray tracing on GeForce RTX hardware (and perhaps other cards as well—more on that in a moment). "Cyberpunk 2077 is an incredibly ambitious game, mixing first-person perspective and deep role-playing, while also creating an intricate and immersive world in which to tell its story," said Matt Wuebbling, head of GeForce marketing at NVIDIA. "We think the world of Cyberpunk will greatly benefit from the realistic lighting... Read more...
Ever since NVIDIA teased that something "super" was in the wings, the Internet has been buzzing with related leaks and rumors, suggesting that the NVIDIA Studio certification program was not actually the big reveal. One of the prevailing theories is that NVIDIA is readying a refresh of its existing GeForce RTX family. The latest chatter adds more fuel to the speculative fire. In case you missed it, NVIDIA two weeks ago posted a short video clip from its "NVIDIA GeForce" account on YouTube with the caption, "Something super is coming..." There wasn't much to the 16-second clip—the camera zoomed and panned around what appeared to be a reflective metal plate with the word "Super" stamped on... Read more...
We've been hearing quite a bit about NVIDIA's Quake II RTX remake over the past few months, and now it's finally available for download. As its name implies, Quake II RTX is meant to showcase the hardware capabilities of NVIDIA's current generation GeForce RTX Turing family of gaming graphics cards. The GeForce RTX cards are able to tackle real-time ray tracing thanks to their dedicated hardware RT and Tensor cores, and also support Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS). All of that processing power is put to good use in Quake II RTX, which NVIDIA says is the world's first game that is fully path-traced, which means that lighting effects like shadows, reflections, and refractions...

NVIDIA on Monday announced a new platform and certification program aimed at making it easy for creators to identify which laptops will suit their needs. It's called NVIDIA Studio, and laptops that bear the badge combine GeForce RTX GPUs with NVIDIA's Studio Stack of specialized SDKs and dedicated drivers to run the top creative applications. In part, this is also a play to extol the benefits of GPU rendering versus trying to accomplish creative tasks on CPU horsepower alone. NVIDIA never misses an opportunity to promote GPUs over CPUs, and this is another opportunity to do that. AMD and Intel might have something to say about that, of course, but from NVIDIA's vantage point, the CPU is no match... Read more...
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...
