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...
Look, buying a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti already screams 'I'm a balla', but if you want to scream it even louder, Galax has your back. The company is bringing the bling to NVIDIA's top shelf consumer card by giving it the Hall of Fame treatment. What is the Hall of Treatment, you ask? Think gold trim, but don't stop there. This thing has a freaking LCD, too. The LCD sits on top of the card and offers information on the card's vitals, such as its operating temperature, fan speed, and GPU voltage. Here's how it looks on the previous version, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Hall of Fame: It can also display clockspeeds, the driver version, and other bits, or you can input your own custom text. It's a unique feature... Read more...
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...
