AMD has already confirmed that the first 7nm Navi-based GPUs will begin shipping in the coming months, which has many gamers excited. "We are well-positioned to grow GPU revenue in the second quarter and through the second half of the year as we expect to introduce our first 7-nanometer Navi gaming GPUs in the third quarter," said AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su during last week's earnings call. Now we're beginning to hear some additional [alleged] leaked details about one of the first members of the incoming Navi family. The rumored Radeon RX 3080 XT will be based on Navi 10 and will reportedly come equipped with 8GB of GDDR6 memory. Other reported specs include a total of 56 compute units and a TDP... Read more...
You may not realize it, but not all GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2070 graphics cards are created equal. We are not just talking about the custom cooling solutions and PCBs (printed circuit boards), but the actual GPUs inside for each model—NVIDIA separates its Turing GPU dies for those models into two categories, or at least that is how things used to be done. Not anymore, apparently. We reported on this separation of GPUs last November. Otherwise known as "binning," NVIDIA up to this point has offered its hardware partners a lower end (and presumably cheaper) variant of a GPU for non-overclocked cards, and a higher-end GPU for models that will be factory overclocked. Here's how things... Read more...
Acer is ready to take PC gaming to the next level with a brand-new entry into its high-end Helios family of laptops. The company today introduced the Helios 700, which is sure to turn heads due to its trick keyboard. Rather than stay stationary like just about every other laptop on the market, the Helios 700’s HyperDrift keyboard actually slides out towards you. This allows the Precision Touchpad and palm rest to sit at a more ergonomic angle. Acer says that by moving the keyboard closer towards you, the user is able to keep a comfortable distance away from the 17-inch display. The sliding keyboard also has an added benefit of improving airflow for a cooling system that already incorporates... Read more...
Zotac rarely misses an opportunity to crank out a new mini PC, and so it is no surprise that its newest model, the Magnus EC52070D, pairs an 8th generation Intel Core processor with NVIDIA's newfangled GeForce RTX 2070 based on Turing. The end result is a miniature box that punches above its weight class. We have not tested this particular model, though we have played around with several previous generation Zbox machines. It always amazes us the level of power that can be crammed into a comparatively small chassis. In this case, the Magnus measures 8.86 (L) x 7.99 (W) by 5.04 (H) inches. It's not Zotac's tiniest enclosure, but is certainly dwarfed by traditional desktop towers, even compact ones.... Read more...
Inno3D is bringing some serious chill to NVIDIA's recently launched GeForce RTX graphics cards with Turing underneath the hood. Following up the release of its iChill Frostbite variants that come with a pre-installed waterblock for integrating into custom liquid cooling loops, Inno3D is rolling out new iChill X3 Jekyll models with split air cooling personalities. So for only the GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2070 have been given the iChill X3 Jekyll treatment—there's no mention of a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti variant. Named after the famous novella "Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," the iChill X3 Jekyll models feature a switchable cooling system, allowing users to choose between three... Read more...
Inno3D is giving NVIDIA's recently announced GeForce RTX series graphics cards a chilly reception. We mean that literally—as in, the company has introduced a line of GeForce RTX models with custom liquid cooling blocks attached, making it easy to incorporate these new cards into systems with existing water cooling setups. The new liquid-cooled cards are part of Inno3D's iChill Frostbite series. There are three models—iChill GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Frostbite, iChill GeForce RTX 2080 Frostbite, and iChill GeForce RTX 2070 Frostbite. Each one sports a full-length waterblock with inlets and outlets for connecting water cooling hoses. "The iChill Frostbite is built with pure copper and is... Read more...
EVGA is one of the few companies to release multiple GeForce RTX series cards based on NVIDIA's reference specs, and at reference price points (an important qualifier). That means you can actually buy a GeForce RTX 2070 for $499.99, rather than pay a premium for NVIDIA's own overclocked Founders Edition model, or any of the several overclocked SKUs by NVIDIA's add-in board (AIB) partners. EVGA, for example, sells an overclocked GeForce RTX 2070 for $569.99. As it turns out, there might be more of a difference than just the out-of-the-box specs. More on that in a moment. For anyone who has not been following the GeForce RTX launch, NVIDIA released three cards: GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, GeForce RTX... Read more...
Hardware manufacturers and resellers have been known to inadvertently tip upcoming and unannounced releases, and for a moment, it looked Gigabyte had done exactly that. To promote the launch of NVIDIA's RTX graphics cards, the company advertised that anyone who purchased an Aorus GeForce RTX 2070 Ti or GeForce RTX 2070 would receive a limited edition Aorus t-shirt for free. The only problem is the GeForce RTX 2070 Ti does not exist. No, seriously, it doesn't actually exist, not even in secret, Gigabyte said in a Reddit thread devoted to the topic. While it initially seemed that Gigabyte accidentally revealed an upcoming RTX model, the company is adamant that it was just a typo, not a slip-up.... Read more...
The staggered roll-out of NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX series of graphics cards continues today with the release of the GeForce RTX 2070. NVIDIA and its partners are at the ready with a wide array of board designs at price points starting at $499. We’ve got a somewhat pricier, all-custom EVGA board on tap for you here that’s packing a dual-fan cooler, configurable RGB lighting, and interchangeable colored accents, the EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 XC. EVGA has a few RTX 2070 cards coming down the pipeline with various cooler configurations and clocks. The EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 XC is actually one of the tamer models, that’s clocked similarly to NVIDIA’s own Founder’s Edition.... Read more...
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...
NVIDIA has made it official. The least powerful version of its new GeForce RTX Series of gaming cards will launch on October 17th. The company made the announcement today via Twitter, and the GeForce RTX 2070 Turing-based graphics cards will have a starting price of $499 for third-party cards. If you want an NVIDIA-branded Founders Edition card, you'll have to fork over $599. However, if the GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti represent an accurate readout of pricing, it may be quite some time before we see custom GeForce RTX 2070 cards approach that $499 street price. Custom GeForce RTX 2070 cards will have 2304 CUDA cores with base and boost GPU clocks coming in at 1410MHz and 160MHz respectively.... Read more...
ASUS has rolled out some new video cards that are aiming directly at the wallets of gamers everywhere. The new cards include the ROG Strix, Dual, and Turbo GeForce RTX 2070 graphics cards, all of which use GDDR6 memory and include Virtual Link tech that lets gamers using a VR headset connect with one cable. The ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2070 uses three wing-blade fans that have hubs 9% smaller than normal fans along for larger fan blades. That means the fans can move more air than similarly sized fans to keep the card cool. The fans also have an IP5X certification for dust resistance, and the fan controllers support a 0dB mode that stops the fans altogether when possible. ASUS fits the Strix... Read more...
Running multiple graphics cards in SLI or CrossFire was once a point of emphasis by NVIDIA and AMD, respectively, though not so much any more. Will that change NVIDIA's newly announced GeForce RTX cards? Here's the thing—both the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and GeForce RTX 2080 support NVLink to chain together two or more cards, but it appears the GeForce GTX 2070 does not. A visit to each of the new card's product pages on NVIDIA's website essentially confirm this. There is an NVLink tab on the two higher end cards, but not on the more 'affordable' GeForce RTX 2070's product page. Furthermore, the NVLink description clearly leaves out the GeForce RTX 2070 while mentioning both of the pricier parts.... Read more...
After an epic week of leaks, NVIDIA's GeForce RTX family has finally been unveiled. There were no real surprises given that we've already seen the specs and various cards from OEM partners, but the new Turing family is no less impressive. As its name implies, the GeForce RTX cards are all about bringing real-time ray-tracing to gamers, allowing for more realistic scenes with proper lighting and shadowing effects for more accurate character and object models in games that will support the technology. As expected, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is the mack daddy of the family with its whopping 4,352 CUDA cores. The family is further fleshed out with the GeForce RTX 2080 (2,944 CUDA... Read more...
