NVIDIA is ready to take its GeForce RTX 30 Series further down-market in the laptop segment with the arrival of the new GeForce RTX 3050 and RTX 3050 Ti. The new GPUs cater to mainstream gaming laptops priced from $799. The company says that with the arrival of the GeForce RTX 3050 and RTX 3050 Ti, the number of laptops with GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs has swelled to over 140. NVIDIA is positioning both cards as replacements for the previous generation Turing-based GeForce GTX 1650 Ti. As such, NVIDIA claims that they offer up to a 2x uplift in performance to 60+ fps at 1080p in popular games like Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Watch Dogs Legion, and Control. You'll also be able to hit 144+... Read more...
We've seen plenty of leaks over the past few weeks and months concerning Intel's 11th generation Tiger Lake-H processors and NVIDIA's [thus unannounced] GeForce RTX 3050 GPUs. Today, however, Samsung just put it all out in the open with the announcement of its Galaxy Book and Galaxy Book Odyssey gaming laptops. The standard Galaxy Book features a 15.6-inch FHD display and is available with a variety of processors to cater to a wide range of gamers. At the low end, Samsung makes available Intel Celeron or Pentium Gold processors. However, those with a bit more money to spend can opt for 11th generation Core i3, Core i5, or Core i7 Tiger Lake processors. Base configurations are equipped with 4GB... Read more...
Over the past few weeks, Amazon has been spilling the beans on upcoming ASUS Tiger Lake-H gaming laptops. Today, it's Lenovo's time in the spotlight, and we can't blame Amazon for the leak this time. In fact, it was Lenovo itself that briefly listed the specifications for its upcoming Legion 5 Pro gaming laptop (and made it available for purchase). The Legion Pro 5 is powered by up to a current-generation AMD Ryzen 7 5800H Zen 3 processor. It also has a 16-inch QHD display (2560x1600, 16:10) with a 165Hz refresh rate and is compatible with NVIDIA G-SYNC and AMD FreeSync. However, the more interesting news confirmed by Lenovo's product listing is the appearance of two unannounced NVIDIA GeForce... Read more...
So far, NVIDIA has released just three mobile Ampere GPUs for laptops, those being the GeForce RTX 3080, GeForce RTX 3070, and GeForce RTX 3060. Within each of those main tiers, OEMs have a million and one combinations to work with (rough estimate), leading to a dizzying array of GeForce RTX 30 mobile GPU configs. Even still, NVIDIA is not finished fleshing out its mobile lineup, and a recent leak highlights what to expect from the upcoming GeForce RTX 3050 Ti and GeForce RTX 3050 additions. Before we get into the unannounced parts, let's quickly recap the specifications for NVIDIA's current lineup. Here's a look...

Armed with unlimited funds, we would all opt for the fastest hardware available, cost be damned. Money does not actually grow on trees (not directly), however, hence the need for cheaper options. NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce RTX 3050 mobile GPU will help fill that need, and if recently leaked specifications are any indication, there will be some interesting budget gaming laptops coming out relatively soon. So far, NVIDIA has released three core GeForce RTX 30 series mobile GPUs for laptops. They include the GeForce RTX 3080 (6,144 CUDA cores), GeForce RTX 3070 (5,120 CUDA cores), and GeForce RTX 3060 (3,840 CUDA cores). Factoring in the different power profiles and configurations available to NVIDIA's... Read more...
An unreleased Samsung laptop has found its way to Geekbench, though that alone is not the interesting part. What is interesting, however, is the hardware inside. The unreleased laptop is sporting an Intel Core i5-11400H processor paired up with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 graphics chip. Neither of those parts officially exist (yet). Let's start with the CPU. According to the benchmark listing, the 11th Gen Core i5-11400H is a 6-core/12-thread processor with a 2.7GHz base clock and 4.5GHz turbo frequency. It also features 12MB of L3 cache, and of course is based on Intel's Tiger Lake architecture. It is expected to arrive around the middle of this year when Intel launches its Tiger Lake H45 lineup....

Little by little, NVIDIA has been fleshing out its GeForce RTX 30 series on the desktop, even if the cards are rarely in stock. Now standing four SKUs tall, you can bet NVIDIA is not finished adding to the pile. Less expensive Ampere options are on the horizon (currently the cheapest card is the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, priced at $399), and adding to the deluge of leaks, Lenovo has basically confirmed three more unannounced cards. Before we get to those, let's talk about the current lineup. NVIDIA released the GeForce RTX 3080 on September 17, with a price set at $699. Then a week later on September 24, it released the GeForce RTX 3090 for $1,499. The GeForce RTX 3070 would follow a month later,... Read more...
Ampere is starting to stretch out its legs and get comfortable on the desktop, with a relatively steady stream of models getting retail releases. It started with the GeForce RTX 3080, which launched in September, followed by the GeForce RTX 3090 later that same month. Then came the GeForce RTX 3070 in October, and a bit of a surprise entry earlier this month, the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti. So, what comes next? Better retail availability, we hope. But when you have a shortage of chips and, on top of it all, one of your add-in board (AIB) partners reports that a truckload of GeForce RTX 3090 cards worth in the neighborhood of $340,000 up and vanish, well, it creates a frustrating situation for consumers,...

NVIDIA no doubt impressed the enthusiast community when it launched the initial members of its Ampere family: the GeForce RTX 3800 and GeForce RTX 3090. Both of those cards offer a significant uplift in performance compared to their GeForce RTX 20 Series predecessors, and they immediately sold out when they launched.  The GeForce RTX 3070 launched later with GeForce RTX 2080 Ti levels of performance, and the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is tipped to launch in early December priced at $399. But NVIDIA is reportedly going even deeper into entry-level territory -- just as it did with previous generations -- by releasing a GeForce RTX 3050. Specs for the card have been revealed by hardware... Read more...
I suspect that by the end of this summer, we will finally have some official clarity on what the next round of graphics cards will bring. Reinforcing that notion is a fresh rumor claiming NVIDIA has taped out a pair of mainstream Ampere cards headed for the consumer market, those being the GeForce RTX 3060 and Geforce RTX 3050. They are considered mainstream in the sense that they are not professional graphics cards, like the Quadro series, nor do they fall into that in-between category served by the Titan RTX. They will still cost a chunk of change, though. For reference, the GeForce RTX 2060 launched at $349. It remains to be seen if Ampere will represent a price bump at each model tier. We... Read more...
