We already know how the GeForce RTX 3080 performs, because the reviews are out (including our own), and simply put it is a gaming monster. Next on tap, however, is the GeForce RTX 3090. While NVIDIA pitches the former as its flagship consumer GPU, it is the latter that truly occupies the flagship space. But how does it perform? Some leaked benchmarks give us an idea, ahead of the card's retail launch next week. The benchmarks come from a variety of sources. One of them includes the Geekbench 5 database, where a GeForce RTX 3090 has recorded a CUDA score of 249,153. For reference, the cumulative average of GeForce RTX 2080 Ti CUDA scores in Geekbench 5 is 162,681. It is not an apples-to-apples... Read more...
NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 20 Series of graphics cards have ruled the roost when it comes to PC gaming performance for roughly two years now. But with the arrival of the new GeForce RTX 30 Series (Ampere), the performance torch is about to be passed to a new breed of GPU monsters. Given that the GeForce RTX 3080 is twice as fast as the old GeForce RTX 2080 at $699, while the GeForce RTX 3070 is faster than the previous flagship GeForce RTX 2080 Ti at less than half the price ($499), there is sure to be some reshuffling when it comes to pricing for these elder Turing-based graphics cards. Luckily, we’re seeing the first movement on the pricing front for the... Read more...
NVIDIA is giving its GeForce RTX 3080 top billing as this generation's flagship graphics card for gaming, a designation that could also be applied to the monstrous GeForce RTX 3090, except that part is basically the newest iteration of the Titan RTX (only not named as such). Can the GeForce RTX 3080 handle the flagship spotlight? Some early benchmarks suggest it can, and with aplomb. We will post our own hands-on analysis with benchmarks and observations as soon as possible. In the meantime, we are left to look at two things—NVIDIA's own performance claims, and leaked benchmarks. Speaking to the latter, NVIDIA claims the GeForce RTX 3070 is faster than the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, and that... Read more...
Stop what you are doing, go into the kitchen, and grab your container of salt. We'll wait. Still waiting. Okay, now that you have gone and grabbed a whole bunch of grains of salt, lets get to the latest next-generation GeForce RTX rumor. According to the recent chatter, the GeForce RTX 3090 will be around 50 percent faster than the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti in 3DMark's Time Spy Extreme benchmark. What is that based on? Well, this is where the salt comes in handy. A pair of established leakers on Twitter posted the information, but without any links or graphs or...anything, really. It is basically banter, presumably on some kind of discovery or inside knowledge. Here is the interesting exchange... KatCorgi:... Read more...
Turn out the lights, the party's over. The Turing GPU party, that is. Well, not officially, but you can assume the party is winding down to some degree, with NVIDIA getting ready to launch a new round of consumer graphics cards based on its Ampere GPU architecture. As it prepares for that day, rumor has it NVIDIA is discounting its GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and several other GeForce RTX 20-series graphics cards. NVIDIA's 7nm Ampere GPU has already arrived, of course, though so far only in high performance computing (HPC) form. A consumer launch is still around the corner. Leading up to the launch, there has been an avalanche of leaks and rumors pointing to next-gen GeForce RTX 3000 series cards, including... Read more...
This may come as a surprise, but there is actually something more valuable than a box of toilet paper and hand sanitizer right now. Over on eBay, NVIDIA's "extremely rare" GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Cyberpunk 2077 Edition graphics card is fetching prices in the range of $5,000. One that sold yesterday reached $5,200, and that did not even include shipping. The buyer had to pay an extra $29.20 to have it shipped, though at least the seller was offering expedited shipping. Still, it is not exactly a value purchase—the MSRP for a regular GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is $999, and the overclocked GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition model runs $1,199 on NVIDIA's website. So, what gives? In collaboration with... Read more...
It doesn't matter if you're playing Call of Duty, Counterstrike, Fortnite, or StarCraft, there's usually a benefit to having the highest frame rates possible when playing games competitively. That requires a couple of things, namely a very fast PC and a 120 - 144Hz or other high-refresh rate gaming monitor. Today, we'll look at the PC components end of that equation and identify graphics cards and GPUs that will help you get the highest possible frame rate out of your rig. However, it goes without saying you'll also need a pretty speedy CPU to drive that card as hard as possible as well. This article could be as simple as telling you to get a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and be done with it. The reality... Read more...
Earlier this morning, both NVIDIA and CD Projekt RED teased the existence of a Cyberpunk 2077 special edition graphics card. Well, NVIDIA didn’t waste any time giving us official details on the fresh hardware that is on the way. NVIDIA says that the limited-edition card is officially called the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Cyberpunk 2077 Edition. As you might have surmised given the name of the card, it’s based on NVIDIA’s existing GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition, and thus carries the exact same performance specifications. The primary differentiator between the two is obviously Cyberpunk 2077’s signature yellow design scheme and custom AL5052 aluminum cooling shroud. It will... Read more...
We all know that NVIDIA will be launching new graphics cards this year, with its next-generation Ampere GPU on the horizon. Before Ampere hits the scene, however, NVIDIA may have a limited edition Turing card waiting in the wings, one that might coincide with the launch of CD Projekt RED's highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 video game later this year. Or perhaps that too will be an Ampere part. Barring another delay, Cyberpunk 2077 is scheduled to launch in September 2020. There's been chatter of Ampere possibly being introduced at NVIDIA's Graphics Technology Conference (GTC) in March, and who knows when actual cards based on the next-gen GPU will land at retail. Either way, NVIDIA is teasing... Read more...
Could this be the year that AMD finally offers up a competitive solution in the high-end graphics space? I'm talking about the very top, where NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 2080 Ti occupies the throne without much threat to its crown. Interestingly enough, a leaked benchmark might possibly point to an unreleased Navi GPU that is faster than NVIDIA's top consumer card. Mayyyyyybe. Forgetting about NVIDIA's Titan RTX and professional Quadro lineup, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is quite simply the best performing graphics card for gaming, with dedicated hardware for real-time ray tracing to boot. It's also expensive, and perhaps not the kind of generational leap in performance some people were expecting, compared... Read more...
Yes folks, there is a such thing as 'professional' overclocking, which may sound like an empty profession on the surface but actually plays an important role. That role is mainly marketing, as companies sponsor and endorse certain overclockers, in hopes of showcasing their products. If you were to take a peak into pro overclocking world right now, you would see a new world record for Port Royal, a ray tracing benchmark that UL Benchmarks recently added to 3DMark. At present, the record currently belongs to none other than Vince Lucido, otherwise known as Kingpin (or "K|NGP|N"), a nickname he derived from his skateboarding days (among other things, a kingpin is a component of the trucks on a skateboard)....

The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is not a cheap graphics card by any stretch of the imagination—NVIDIA charges $1,199 for its overclocked Founders Edition, and set the MSRP for reference models at $999. Hardware partners are free to customize the card and charge what they want, and for Colorful, that meant designing a unique variant that is around $800 more than the Founders Edition model. Colorful is not a brand that is all that popular in the United States, but is active in other markets, such as China. The company recently made headlines around the globe, however, for its iGame GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Kudan, an industrial looking card that would be right at home in a steampunk setting. This is a...

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...
There is an issue with the first round GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards that at the moment appear to only be affecting NVIDIA's overclocked Founders Edition model, a company representative confirmed in NVIDIA's GeForce support forum. The confirmation follows a rash of complaints of GeForce RTX 2080 Ti cards experiencing various issues, from blue screen of death (BSOD) errors to artifacts and other symptoms. "Limited test escapes from early boards caused the issues some customers have experienced with RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition. We stand ready to help any customers who are experiencing problems," forum moderator 'Tim@NVIDIA' stated. Tim went on to recommended that affected users visit NVIDIA's... Read more...
Back in March, MSI launched the Trident 3 compact gaming PC complete with a Kaby Lake-based Intel Core i7-7700 processor and a GeForce GTX 1070 GPU. MSI has taken the opportunity to make a serious upgrade to its compact gaming PC with the help of new hardware that has launched over the past few weeks, and has crowned it the Trident X. The Trident X is available with Intel's new 9th generation Core processors that were announced yesterday. In this case, customers can choose from the 8-core/8-thread Core i7-9700K or the 8-core/16-thread Core i9-9900K. When it comes to graphics options, you can choose from the GeForce RTX 2070, RTX 2080 or the range-topping RTX 2080... Read more...
Slowly but surely, Gigabyte is expanding its lineup of GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and GeForce RTX 2080 graphics cards based on NVIDIA's recently launched Turing architecture. The notable new entries fall under the company's Aorus gaming brand and include four new models in all, with fancy RGB lighting to light up your PC. We poked around and could not find product pages for any of the new cards, though Aorus did tease a handful of photos on Twitter. The photos show one of the new cards sitting in the dark with the RGB lighting turned up. think that there's only a limited choice of RGB color options? Think again! Oh the possibilities..... 😎 😍 ✨ #AORUS #RTX20series #GeForceRTX #graphicscard #GeBeyond... Read more...
The initial focus on NVIDIA's recently launched GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and GeForce RTX 2080 graphics cards has been on how well they perform in games, especially when cranking up the resolution to 4K (3840x2160). That will continue to be a point of interest, though it's not the only one. A fresh set of benchmarks making the rounds highlight how the new cards perform in deep learning workloads. Before we get to the numbers, let's talk about why this matters. As you might already know, the GeForce RTX series pushes consumer graphics cards into new territory. Typically with each new generation of graphics cards, consumers benefit from faster rasterization rendering and sometimes better power efficiency.... Read more...
The embargoes have lifted on sharing performance metrics for NVIDIA's GeForce RTX cards, and if you haven't done so already, be sure to check our in-depth review of the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and 2080 (we also have a deep dive on Turing, if you're interested). One thing we didn't cover, however, is extreme overclocking—the Walmart clerk looked at us funny when we asked which aisle we could find liquid nitrogen. Someone else did, though, and set a new 3DMark world record in the process. His name is Vince Lucido, though you might know him better as Kingpin (or K|NGP|N). For anyone is not familiar, Kingpin is an extreme overclocker who built his first PC in 2001, and began overclocking in 2003.... Read more...
NVIDIA and developer 4A Games have released a video showing over 6 minutes of gameplay footage from Metro Exodus, a story-driven first person shooter (FPS) that will be one of the first titles to support real-time ray tracing. The video is narrated by Benjamin Archard, a rendering programmer at 4A Games. In it, he explains some of the intricacies of real-time ray tracing, and specifically global illumination. As anyone who has been following the GeForce RTX launch already knows, NVIDIA's new generation of Turing cards are built to bring real-time ray tracing to consumers. The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, 2080, and 2070 all feature dedicated RT and Tensor cores, and used in conjunction with Microsoft's... Read more...
At this point, there is a lot of information out there about NVIDIA's next-generation GeForce RTX graphics cards, including details on pricing and availability, and a deep dive into the underlying Turing architecture. All that is really left to know is what kind of performance the new cards will deliver. Reviewers are under embargo at the moment, though a set of leaked results for Final Fantasy XV provide a glimpse of how the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti compares to previous generation cards. What makes this leak data somewhat unique is that the results appear in Square Enix's official Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition database, rather than some random website or web forum. That doesn't mean there isn't... Read more...
Hey, did you hear? NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX graphics cards can do ray tracing! Of course you've heard that, because real-time ray tracing has dominated the narrative. The big question mark, however, is the one that hangs over rasterization performance compared to the previous generation of Pascal cards. That will not be answered until the reviews are in, naturally. In the meantime, the leaks keep coming, and the latest one supposedly shows the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti scoring much higher than a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti in 3DMark. Before we get to the numbers, let's talk about rasterization and ray tracing for a moment. Real-time ray tracing is the future, there's no doubt about that. The current implementation... Read more...
We are on the cusp of the era of real-time ray tracing in games. It effectively begins once NVIDIA starts shipping its GeForce RTX series cards based on the company's Turing GPU architecture, with dedicated Tensor and RT cores underneath the hood, but what kind of performance can we realistically expect? That depends on the situation. As you might already know, real-time ray tracing requires an enormous amount of horsepower. It deals with levels of detail that are beyond the scope of rasterization rendering, and can produce photorealistic visuals. To bring real-time ray tracing to games, companies like NVIDIA are focusing a sort of hybrid implementation, where parts of a scene are ray-traced.... Read more...
