Corsair has gotten around to updating its lineup of compact gaming PCs with the latest generation CPU hardware from AMD (Ryzen 5000 series based on Zen 3) and Intel (11th Gen Core chips based on Rocket Lake-S). Just as enticing, both the updated Corsair One a200 and One i200 come equipped with NVIDIA's burly GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card. As we noted in our GeForce RTX 3080 review, the card is nothing short of impressive, delivering extreme performance across the board. It is an outstanding GPU for gaming at 4K and turning on real-time ray tracing effects. It's nice to see Corsair turning to one of NVIDIA's finest (second only to the GeForce RTX 3090) for its refreshed compact desktops. While... Read more...
Earlier this month, NVIDIA announced its CMP HX family of Crypto Mining Processors, which are intended for professional miners looking to make some big bucks. This week, we found out that the entry-level CMP 30HX and 40HX feature the Turing TU116 and TU106 GPUs, respectively.  Today, VideoCardz revealed that the next step up in the family -- the CMP 50HX -- is also based on Turing, specifically the TU102. The CMP 50HX is thus closely related to the previous generation flagship GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.  GeForce RTX 3080 But more interesting is the fact that the top-of-the-line CMP 90HX features the GA102, which means that it's most closely aligned with the current...

The devastating effects of COVID-19 are still being felt throughout the world, and obviously the loss of life is the primary concern. Secondary to that, there is a big economic fallout from the pandemic in certain segments. As such, businesses are doing what they can to survive, which in some cases includes converting spaces into cryptocurrency mining farms. Pictured above is an internet cafe in Vietnam called Internet Cafe Computer Star, which now mines cryptocurrency instead of serving customers. According to the business owner, it is easier to make a buck this way during the pandemic. "Transforming business i the pandemic. Profits are higher than net business, net room owners who want to do... Read more...
There are tons of new laptops being announced today, and Acer is of course is getting in on the action. The company has revealed a couple of new products based around AMD's new Ryzen 5000 processors including the Nitro 5, Aspire 7 and the Aspire 5. The Nitro 5 is perhaps the most interesting of the trio, as it is available in both 15.6-inch and 17.3-inch display sizes. With either display choice, you can opt for a 165Hz QHD panel or a 360Hz Full HD panel. Driving those high refresh rate displays is up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Mobile GPU, which packs quite a punch for laptop gamers (base systems will come with a GeForce RTX 3060). On the processor front, the Nitro 5 can be equipped with... Read more...
We have known for quite some time that new laptops are on the horizon, with certain models pairing AMD's next round of mobile CPUs based on Zen 3 with NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce RTX 30 mobile series GPUs. The combination of Zen 3 and Ampere in a laptop has us salivating. So do the latest benchmark leaks, which highlight a couple of forthcoming ASUS ROG Strix models. ASUS actually has a whole bunch of designs and configurations on tap, if the rash of recent leaks are any indication. Just a few days ago, we wrote about an ROG Zephyrus flexing a Ryzen 9 5900H and GeForce RTX 3080 Mobile GPU in Geekbench. We have also seen a retailer tip the pending launch of a TUF Gaming laptop setup pairing an Intel... Read more...
Some enticing new hardware for mobile form factors is right around the corner. Namely, AMD is getting ready to announce its next round of laptops CPUs (Ryzen 5000H/HS/U), and NVIDIA is prepping a port of its Ampere GPU architecture over to mobile, according to a plethora of leaks and rumors. Waiting is the tough part, but to whet your appetite, a listing on Geekbench highlights an upcoming ASUS laptop that will pair Zen 3 with Ampere. One thing to note about AMD's pending mobile refresh—word on the web is that the Ryzen 5000H/HS/U series will be confusingly split between Zen 3 (Cezanne) and Zen 2 (Lucienne), so consumers will need to pay attention to exactly what they are buying and do...

CES 2021 is less than two weeks away, and the leaks are already starting to flood in. Earlier this week, we informed you that ASUS has several ROG Strix gaming laptops on the way with up to a GeForce RTX 3080 GPU and up to a Ryzen 9 5900H processor onboard.  Now, we're learning about another ASUS gaming laptop that will likely be unveiled at CES 2021: the Zephyrus G15 (GA503QS). The listing for the laptop comes from Amazon China, and surprisingly, is still active even though ASUS has not made any official announcements. Rather humorously, there actually aren't any images of the Zephyrus G15 presented in the listing; instead, there are images of what appears to be a shower curtain.... Read more...
Despite the ongoing availability woes for current-generation GPUs, NVIDIA’s board partners continue to march forward with custom GeForce RTX 30-series designs, that are near complete departures from Founders Edition models. Case in point, the MSI GeForce RTX 3080 SUPRIM X we’ll be showing you here today. Although it is built around the same GPU as NVIDIA’s Founders Edition, MSI went in a completely different direction than NVIDIA's design. While the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Founder’s Edition has a relatively small, notched PCB with a small form factor power connector and a traditional 2-slot width, the MSI GeForce RTX 3080 SUPRIM X is over a foot long, over 5”...

I will readily admit that I am excited about the next round of gaming laptops that loom right around the corner. There are some enticing models on the market already, ones that pair fast AMD Ryzen 4000H and Intel Comet Lake-H CPUs with dedicated GPUs. But the pending launch of mobile GeForce RTX 30 series GPUs has the potential to dramatically bump up gaming performance in laptops, especially with ray tracing turned on. What exactly can we expect? At this point, everything amounts to a leak or rumor. NVIDIA has not yet released, announced, or even hinted at porting Ampere to mobile, but we all know it's coming. What we do not know, however, is what specific mobile SKUs NVIDIA has planned and... Read more...
CES 2021 is nearly upon us, which means that PC manufacturers and accessory makers are gearing up for a wave of new releases. The close proximity of CES 2021 -- which will be all-digital this time around due to COVID-19 -- means that leaks have been coming in at a rapid pace. Such is the case with ASUS' upcoming ROG Strix gaming laptops, which will feature the latest hardware goodness from AMD and NVIDIA onboard. IThome was not only able to obtain some specs for the incoming crop of ROG Strix laptops, but it also snagged some images as well. According to this new leak, the laptops will be offered with up to a Ryzen 9 5900H Zen 3 processor, which will be an absolute beast. Recent leaked benchmarks... Read more...
There's no question that we're getting close to the launch of AMD's Ryzen 5000 Series mobile processors and the upcoming GeForce RTX 30 Series Mobile GPUs. Both product families have been leaking frequently in recent weeks, with the most recent leak coming today with the Acer Nitro 5 AN517. This version of the Nitro 5 (AN517-41-R9S5) features a 144Hz 17.3-inch IPS display (matte) with a resolution of 1920x1080. Powering that display is a mobile version of the incredibly potent NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080. That GPU is a 4K graphics monster, and should have no trouble pushing pixels with ray tracing enabled at the panel's default resolution. The GeForce RTX 3080 is listed with just 8GB of memory versus... Read more...
In the year of preorder hell and delays, trying to snag a GPU is a tough task. Combine that with bots, scalpers, and hundreds of thousands of other people waiting to get their hands on a NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 or AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT just as you are, odds go down even further. To help combat against bots and scalpers, Newegg implemented combo deals that have GPUs in them, so you could get a GPU and some RAM or a PSU for a markup on top of the GPU. Previously, you could return the extra items if you did not need it, but Newegg is cutting that off to the ire of many Newegg customers. In theory, adding extra items to an order to drive up the cost to reduce scalping makes sense. If Newegg retained... Read more...
Razer is introducing a rather intriguing device for us today, and it's a nice departure from the steady stream of gaming PCs that the company typically releases. The company is looking to chop through the desktop gaming market with the Tomahawk modular gaming PC, which is based around Intel's NUC platform. To be more exact, at the heart of the Tomahawk is the Intel NUC 9 Extreme Compute Element card. The Complete Element card contains the processor -- up to a Core i9-9980HK -- memory, and SSD on a single module. This module is then plugged right into the chassis, which makes serviceability and upgrades a quick and simple affair. In this case, the module features a 512GB PCIe 3.0 SSD... Read more...
Ultrabook laptops are typically not the best performers when it comes to anything outside of casual browsing or light workloads. They may have a decent CPU, but the GPU almost always lacks for people who want to game or do some heavy work, such as editing. Therefore, GPU enclosures are incredibly handy, as you can just plug them into a laptop and have the full power of a GPU at your disposal when needed. Gigabyte has now kicked things up a notch with the AORUS RTX 3090/3080 GAMING BOX, the “world’s 1st water-cooled external graphics” enclosure. The AORUS Gaming Box is equipped with either a liquid-cooled NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 or GeForce RTX 3080 that connects to your laptop... Read more...
It looks as though relief for enthusiasts isn't coming anytime soon if you want one of NVIDIA's highly rated GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards. NVIDIA has cited overwhelming demand as it struggles to not only deliver its own Founders Edition cards to customers, but also GPUs that find their way into custom boards from its various board partners. NVIDA CEO Jensen Huang previous stated that he expected supply issues to last through at least the end of 2020. However, on this week's earnings call, NVIDIA CFO Colette Kress explained that eager customers will be waiting into 2021 for relief. "While we had anticipated strong demand, it exceeded even our bullish expectation," said... Read more...
AMD's Ryzen 5000 family of processors and NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 30 Series of graphics cards are among the hottest PC hardware products on the market today -- well, that it is if you can actually get your hands on them, which is a near-impossible at the moment. However, you can get both if you step into Corsair's new Vengeance a7200 Series Gaming PC. Corsair is allowing you to configure the Vengeance a7200 with up to a 12-core/24-thread Ryzen 9 5900X processor along with up to a GeForce RTX 3080 graphics cards. Both are incredibly potent pieces of hardware that will fuel your 4K gaming needs with ease at maximum detail settings. Given that this is Corsair we're talking... Read more...
When it comes to PC graphics cards, NVIDIA has long held the performance advantage despite continued pressure from AMD. NVIDIA ramped up the pressure over the summer with the launch of the GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3090, and today we gave you our review of the GeForce RTX 3070. Hot on the heels of new information regarding an alleged GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, we’re learning that NVIDIA is looking to further expand its GPU stack with a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. As you might have already surmised, this card would fill in a very deep hole in NVIDIA’s lineup between the $699 GeForce RTX 3080 and the $1,499 GeForce RTX 3090. According to reliable hardware leaker kopite7kimi, the GPU... Read more...
NVIDIA already came out and launched its GeForce RTX 30 series, consisting initially of the GeForce RTX 3090, GeForce RTX 3080, and GeForce RTX 3070, two of which we have already ran through the benchmark ringer, with superb performance. The ball is now in AMD's court to respond. That response will come in the form of Big Navi, and some supposedly early benchmarks look promising, at least in rasterized graphics. AMD will officially step into the next-gen GPU ring with its Radeon RX 6000 series, launching next week. Ahead of the launch, AMD teased the performance of its Big Navi offering when announcing its Zen 3 CPUs, showing off a bit of Borderlands 3 gameplay running at a 4K resolution, along... Read more...
NVIDIA would likely be the first to admit that its GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3090 launches were problem prone. With the former, there were glitches and an overabundance of bots snatching up stock which left many enthusiasts without cards in hand. With the GeForce RTX 3090 launch, additional precautions were taken, but stock was still depleted within mere minutes. It's become clear that NVIDIA's online web store simply isn't equipped to handle the immense demand when it comes to its own Founder Edition cards, so the company is looking for some outside help. As a result, NVIDIA announced in a forum post that Best Buy will become its exclusive retail partner in the United States... Read more...
The scarcity of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 series cards has been a source of consternation for gaming enthusiasts and financial temptation for unscrupulous resellers. And it turns out that at least one of NVIDIA's board partners is up to no good as well. It was recently found that a subsidiary of MSI has been reselling NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series cards at huge markups through online storefronts, including eBay. Overnight, a reddit user brought to light the practices of Starlit Partner. On eBay, Startlit Partner had listed an MSI GeForce RTX 3080 GAMING X TRIO GPU for $600 over MSRP at $1,359. Looking through its feedback, the store is rife with additional sales which indicate... Read more...
You would have better luck trying to acquire a bucket of plutonium than getting your hands on a GeForce RTX 3080 or GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card right now, and it would probably be cheaper (compared to what scalpers are asking for these cards). But unless you have a flux capacitor, what are you going to do with plutonium? Get arrested, that's what. Fortunately, EVGA has come to the rescue with a way to reserve a GeForce RTX 30 series graphics card that is both fair and, to quote the old Guinness commercials, brilliant! It is a queue-based notification system, whereby you select an out-of-stock card you want, and as more inventory comes in, EVGA will notify users in the order they requested... Read more...
We've got some not-so-good news for you, if you've been hoping to [easily] get your hands on a new GeForce RTX 3080 or GeForce RTX 3090 this holiday season. During a Q&A with the tech press, following the company's onslaught of GTC 2020 announcements, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang noted, relating to Ampere gaming GPUs, that "demand will outstrip all of our supply through the year." "The demand issue is that it is much greater than we expected - and we expected really a lot." That's a serious bummer considering that the initial supply of GeForce RTX 3080 cards was depleted within a few minutes when it launched on September 17th. Even after NVIDIA and its partners implemented some failsafe... Read more...
