We’ve already covered Alienware’s new Area-51m R3 and m15/m17 R3 gaming laptop releases, and now it’s time to shift focus to their desktop sibling. We’re of course talking about the Aurora desktop, which is aimed squarely at the eSports market. Liquid cooling – for the processor – has long been a staple of Alienware desktops. However, the 2020 edition of the Aurora is bringing a first for company: liquid cooled graphics cards. The Aurora’s PCIe liquid cooling solution is available with its GeForce RTX 2080 graphics option, and promises a further 19.5 percent temperature decrease along with a 69.2 percent decrease in noise reduction compared...

Ready, set...FIGHT! Well, not quite yet, actually—I'm jumping the gun a bit on the next-generation laptop wars that will pit Intel's upcoming Comet Lake-H processors against AMD's Ryzen 4000 series. It's going to be interesting to see how the dust settles. As we wait, the leaked benchmark scene is providing yet another glimpse of what is to come, this time in the form of a presumed ASUS gaming laptop with a Core i9-10880H processor inside. I say "presumed" because even though the laptop is not labeled in the leaked 3DMark entry (fist bump to @_rogame for spotting the entry), the GPU section lists the vendor as ASUS. There are three possibilities (listed here in order of likelihood)... This... 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...
In case anyone is wondering, NVIDIA is not feeling threatened by AMD's recently unveiled Radeon VII graphics card, which is the first implementation of a 7-nanometer GPU in a consumer gaming product. During a Q&A session with members of the media, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang called the overall performance of the Radeon VII "lousy" and said his company's GeForce RTX 2080, which is priced the same, will "crush" it. NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang At Private Press Q&A With HotHardware And Other Press That's really just barely scratching the surface of what Huang had to say—he railed on AMD's product launch, shared his opinion about FreeSync, and even had something to say about Intel getting into...

Well, this is definitely a break from the norm. ASUS has just announced its new Republic of Gamers (ROG) Mothership, which is a desktop-replacement gaming notebook that manages to pack quite a bit of hardware into a truly unique form-factor. At first glance, the ROG Mothership looks somewhat like an all-in-one desktop, as the display sits upright and is propped up by a rear-mounted step-less kickstand. However, you'll then see that it also includes a keyboard that can be attached or used wirelessly. When attached to the ROG Mothership, the keyboard is fully extended and sits at an incline. However, once detached, the keyboard can be folded (basically doubling its height) allowing you to position... Read more...
ASUS's Republic of Gamers (ROG) Zephyrus family of gaming notebooks is getting another update today in the form of the ROG Zephyrus S (GX701). This machine one-ups the 15-inch Zephyrus S (GX531) with a 17.3-inch 144Hz G-SYNC panel. But the biggest news with the Zephyrus S relates to the GPU that it uses. While its 15-inch counterpart makes use of a Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1060 or GeForce GTX 1070 with Max-Q design, this enlarged gaming notebook relies on NVIDIA's new Turing-based GeForce RTX 2080 with Max-Q design. This is NVIDIA's latest mobility GPU that brings with it real-time ray tracing goodness that is sure to spread to more games during 2019 (Battlefield V was the headlining... 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...
Have you been holding off buying a new gaming laptop in anticipation of NVIDIA's Turing GPU architecture being ported over to mobile? Well, good news—it appears NVIDIA and its OEM partners are getting ready to introduce laptop models featuring mobile versions of the GPU maker's GeForce RTX series in the near future. There has already been (unofficial) chatter of NVIDIA prepping its mobile GeForce RTX series for a launch right before the Consumer Electronics Shows (CES) in Las Vegas next month. While that is not for certain of course, the latest round of leaks suggest it's at least plausible. As spotted by Twitter user and notorious leaker TUM APISAK, there are several mobile GeForce RTX...

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...
Corsair today has announced that it is launching the first in a new lineup of pre-built gaming PCs that fall under the Vengeance brand name. Corsair is providing nearly everything that you need with regards to the system with the exception of a monitor when you purchase the new Vengeance 5180. The Vengeance 5180 is powered by an 8th generation Intel Core i7-8700 processor, which is a hexa-core SKU with boost speeds of up to 4.6GHz.

We all know that Lenovo builds PCs, but did you know it also builds starships? Well, it does now. Lenovo is boldly going where it has never gone before, that being the Star Trek universe with a custom PC molded after the iconic USS Enterprise (NCC-1701). It's apparently a powerful PC, compete with an optional PC in case Scotty wants to beam some original Star Trek episodes. Lenovo posted a short teaser video on Twitter and YouTube. The clip is only 14 seconds long, though that's more than long enough to get excited about its upcoming PC. There are several closeup shots of the system, followed by a full view of the rig. Check it out below... Unfortunately, Lenovo didn't post any specs to social... Read more...
Gigabyte is all over the GeForce RTX launch, including models that will be sold under its Aorus gaming brand.

NVIDIA's new generation of GeForce RTX graphics cards are in the hands of reviewers, and today the NDA lifted on a full and exhaustive breakdown of the underlying Turing architecture, including all the new features and goodies that are underneath the hood. Performance numbers will have to wait for another day, at least officially. Unofficially, there are some leaked scores on 3DMark of the GeForce RTX 2080. What makes this leak particularly interesting is that it purports to show the performance of the GeForce RTX 2080 with a newer GPU driver package, version 411.51, which presumably has been optimized for the RTX cards. The 411.51 driver release is not yet available to the public—NVIDIA... Read more...
If there is one thing you can count on from EVGA, it's that the company will release a barrage of graphics cards whenever there is a new generation of GPUs. Such is again the case with NVIDIA's recent GeForce RTX series launch with Turing inside. EVGA immediately showed off a bunch of custom cooled XC and FTW3 cards, but those were just the tip of the iceberg. Over on Twitter, EVGA's product management director, Jacob Freeman, posted some photos of the company's fleshed out GeForce RTX lineup. Here's a look at one of them: Click to Enlarge The above is EVGA's Hybrid FTW3 three model. As with previous generations of Hybrid FTW cards, the GeForce RTX 2080 model combines a traditional air cooling... Read more...
We have a treat coming up for you all tomorrow afternoon, as we’ll be hosting a livestream chat with Tom Petersen, who serves as the Director of Technical Marketing for NVIDIA. It doesn’t take a cryptologist to figure out what we’re going to be talking about: all things NVIDIA Turing of course. Early last week, NVIDIA announced its next-generation gaming graphics card lineup which includes the GeForce RTX 2070, RTX 2080 and the RTX 2080 Ti. In addition to promising raw gaming performance gains over the previous generation GeForce GTX 10 series, these new Turing cards also bring NVDIA RTX real-time ray-tracing technology and some new image quality features, like AI-powered...

NVIDIA's message when unveiling its GeForce RTX series of graphics card was crystal clear—the era of gaming with real-time ray tracing has arrived, at least on the hardware and API side, with content to follow. That's all well and good, but the big question that is yet be answered is, how well do the new cards perform compared to Pascal? A new 3DMark entry might provide a partial answer. What appears to be a GeForce RTX 2080 or GeForce RTX 2070 graphics card has made another appearance in 3DMark, and specifically the DirectX 12-based Time Spy test. It's not entirely clear which of those cards it is, as the entry lists it as having 8GB of memory and a 7,000MHz memory clock, specs that are... Read more...
This week at Gamescom 2018, NVIDIA held a GeForce Gaming Celebration to unveil its new GeForce RTX 2080 and 2070 series graphics cards, based on its new Turing GPU architecture. The NVIDIA GPU that powers GeForce RTX cards ushers in a wealth of new technologies, enabled by its new processing engines. These new technologies include hardware-accelerated, real-time Ray Tracing and a new form of anti-aliasing called DLSS or Deep Learning Super Sampling, among a few others we can't talk about just yet. What’s interesting about DLSS is that it uses Turing’s Tensor cores to enable a deep learning-powered AI technique to dramatically improve image quality and remove jagged edge artifacts...

Do you think maybe NVIDIA's add-in board partners are excited about the company's GeForce RTX 2000 series launch? You better believe it. Unlike everyone else, NVIDIA's hardware partners have known about finalized specs for a long time so they could prepare custom cards at launch. EVGA in particular has unveiled no less than 16 GeForce GTX 2080 Ti and GeForce GTX 2080 cards, and there will be even more SKUs when the GeForce RTX 2070 hits in October. The more than a dozen SKUs are split evenly between the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and GeForce GTX 2080 (eight each, by our count). Features vary by model, of course. Most of the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti sport a 16 phase power design, for example, while the two... Read more...
NVIDIA just dropped a massive bombshell on the gaming community with its GeForce RTX family of products, which include the RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080 and RTX 2070. If you want to know more about the Turing architecture that underpins these cards and about their ray-tracing performance, we suggest you check out our two previous articles on the Quadro RTX and GeForce RTX announcements, but here's a quick refresher on what separates the three: GeForce RTX 2080 Ti: 4352 CUDA cores, 1545MHz boost clock, 11GB GDDR6 GeForce RTX 2080:     2944 CUDA cores, 1710MHz boost clock, 8GB GDDR6 GeForce RTX 2070:     2304 CUDA cores, 1620MHz boost...
