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...
EVGA's new GeForce RTX 3090 Kingpin Hybrid Gaming graphics card (24G-P5-3998-KR) is, in a word, boss. It is also expensive, which comes as no surprise—the GeForce RTX 3090 is NVIDIA's flagship Ampere card for consumers (basically this generation's Titan RTX), and the Kingpin Hybrid Gaming edition kicks things up a notch with an all-in-one liquid cooler attached. This is basically for people who not only want the best of the best, but the best of the best of the best, if you can follow all that. And for extreme overclocking attempts. Serving as the backbone is a 12-layer printed circuit board powered by an "extreme power design with extreme overclocking in mind." It sports integrated "Smart... Read more...
If there is one thing we can count on whenever hot new component hardware arrives, it's that it will not be long before Dell integrates it into their Alienware gaming systems. So naturally, with the release of Nvidia’s latest and greatest GeForce RTX 3080 and 3090 graphics cards, it was no surprise to see Alienware desktops already shipping out with these cards on deck. The Alienware Aurora R11 we have in our lab today features Dell's highest-performance configuration with an RTX 3090 to create what representatives at Dell are calling a “Benchmark Bruiser.” We will, of course, get to those benchmarks, but first let’s get familiar with this new Alienware machine itself....

NVIDIA's so-called "BFGPU," the GeForce RTX 3090 has been in short supply since its release last month. The audience for the world's fastest graphics card might be a little limited thanks to its $1,500 MSRP, but that hasn't stopped them from fetching far more than that on eBay. One element that was missing at launch was a large pool of cards from NVIDIA's manufacturing partners. However, thanks to a defective graphics card swap, one Redditor got their hands on a new model from MSI: The GeForce RTX 3090 SUPRIM X. According to the poster "Wet-Goat", they received the card as a swap for the card they'd intended to purchase, an ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 3090 that was defective. This card supposedly...

We have seen Gundam-themed PC parts before, and none of them were really up to snuff. At an event in Japan, ASUS Republic of Gamers showed off a solid execution of the Gundam theme. A whole lineup of Gundam PC parts and peripherals were showcased, and they all look pretty slick. If you are a Gundam anime fan, you may have to go to get these parts shipped from Japan and pay a bit of markup to get them. Recently, on social media site BiliBili, a video was posted giving people an up-close and personal look at the show's star: a Gundam-themed NVIDIA RTX 3090. ASUS ROG nailed the execution, as the NVIDIA card looks robotic, but not in an over the top and tacky kind of way. The card is largely... 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...
Finding a GeForce RTX 3080 or GeForce RTX 3090 in stock and at MSRP (or thereabouts) is virtually impossible at the moment, and NVIDIA warns that demand is likely to exceed supply into next year. Bummer. However, it is a different situation if buying a pre-built PC. Case in point, Dell just upgraded its Alienware Aurora R11 and Aurora Ryzen Edition R10 gaming desktops with GeForce RTX 30 series GPU options. The GPUs are custom variants by Dell, with its own designed cooling scheme featuring 10mm copper heatpipes, vapor chambers, and dual axial fans. That also means they look a bit different than a typical Founders Edition model, or even most third-party versions. Not that the aesthetic really... 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...
The Kingpin line of GPUs from EVGA is generally regarded as beastly and over the top. Following the launch of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX Ampere line of cards, this generation will be no different. The GeForce RTX 3090 is getting the Kingpin treatment from EVGA, and holy smokes, it is certainly shaping up to be a beast. Vince Lucido, better known as the man behind Kingpin Cooling, has been working with EVGA on the Kingpin line of cards since the GeForce 780 Ti era. The Kingpin line of cards typically come decked out with robust cooling solutions, superior power phase design, and higher clock speeds than other cards. The GeForce RTX 3090, while already beastly based on reviews such as our own, can... Read more...
Ever since NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang first revealed the GeForce RTX 30 Series earlier this month, excitement around the Ampere-based graphics cards has been incredibly high. So, it should come as no surprise that the launch of both the GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3090 were met with immediate sellouts, much to the chagrin of gamers eager to get their hands on the most powerful 4K (and 8K) capable GPUs. Most simply assumed that NVIDIA was playing fast and loose with inventory when it comes to the GeForce RTX 3080 and the GeForce RTX 3090. There have been wild rumors that NVIDIA was purposefully limiting the number of cards available at launch to manage its margins, or to... Read more...
As promised, the GeForce RTX 3090 launched to retail today, and as expected, it disappeared pretty much right away. But then something a bit unexpected happened. I saw it back in stock, both on NVIDIA's own website and at Best Buy (a few listings, anyway). But was it a mirage? Can you really order one? Or is it truly out of stock? Yes. So here's the deal—the GeForce RTX 30 series is a hit, starting with the GeForce RTX 3080 that launched to retail last week and has been crushing benchmarks, followed by today's launch of the GeForce RTX 3090. The card that came first flew off store shelves, the result of hyper demand by both eager gamers and annoying scalpers armed with bots. This prompted... Read more...
What happens when you take the burly GPU powering the GeForce RTX 3080, enable a couple thousand more cores, widen the memory interface, more than double the memory capacity, boost the texturing capabilities, and outfit the beast with a quiet, oversized, high-performance cooler? Well, we’ll tell you. You end up with the GeForce RTX 3090, or the “BFGPU” as NVIDIA’s CEO Jensen Huang called it during its official unveiling. If you’re unfamiliar with the Doom BFG reference there, we’ll let you look it up. Rest assured, the BF doesn’t stand for Best Friend. Whatever you want to call the GeForce RTX 3090, one thing is for certain. As of this moment, the GeForce... Read more...
When NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang announced the GeForce RTX 3080, he billed it at the company's new gaming flagship. Priced at $699, the GeForce RTX 3080 is twice as fast as the GeForce RTX 2080 and is a 4K gaming champion. But the true flagship of the Ampere family is actually the GeForce RTX 3090, which can drive certain games at 60fps at a stunning 8K resolution. We already knew that the GeForce RTX 3090 would be arriving tomorrow, September 24th, but NVIDIA is further driving that point home with a new blog post. If you thought that it was nearly impossible to get a GeForce RTX 3080 last week when it launched, your fortunes will likely be much worse if you're attempting to purchase... Read more...
It remains to be seen what the demand will be like for NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card, the big daddy of the GeForce RTX 30 series. What I can say is that pricing will start at $1,499, as NVIDIA has already announced. However, some of the custom models from NVIDIA's add-in board partners will cost up to a few hundred dollars more, it seems. In contrast, the GeForce RTX 3080 starts at $699, and has proven immensely popular. NVIDIA and its retail partners quickly sold out of available stock, partly because scalpers and bots flooded the scene. This prompted an apology from NVIDIA, along with a self-imposed Q&A explaining the shortage situation, and a promise to handle things... Read more...
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...
Who wants to see some naked pictures? Of a graphics card, I mean! (Get your mind out of the gutter!). You are in luck, then, because there are some images floating around of NVIDIA's latest Ampere cards, with the cooling shroud removed. One of them shows the GeForce RTX 3090 (pictured above) and the other depicts the GeForce RTX 3090. Those are NVIDIA's top consumer cards at the moment. To recap, NVIDIA initially launched Ampere as a machine learning GPU, in the form of the A100, then followed suit with its GeForce RTX 30 series, including the $499 GeForce RTX 3070 (supposedly faster than a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti), $699 GeForce RTX 3080 (supposedly twice as fast as a GeForce RTX 2080), and $1,499...

Even though none of NVIDIA's newly launched GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards are actually available to buy right now, retailers have begun preparing for when they will be, by going live with product listings. Over on Newegg, for example, there are more than a dozen GeForce RTX 3090 and GeForce RTX 3070 listings. If you are planning to upgrade, you can make things easier by tracking availability with a handy monitoring tool You can do that easy enough through NowInStock.net, a free web service that monitors online retailer sites to see when products come in stock or go up for pre-order. Not just graphics cards or electronics, either, but an assortment of goods—even hand soap. Here are... Read more...
We can tell you all day long and until we are blue in the face that the GeForce RTX 3090 is a monumentally big card, with sheer size to match its beastly specifications. But as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. Fortunately, someone has gathered up the entire GeForce RTX 30 series and plopped them next to each other for a photo shoot. It is easy to spot the GeForce RTX 3090 among the bunch—it is the hulking graphics card on the left, situated next to a GeForce RTX 3080 in the middle, and a GeForce RTX 3070 on the right. Hat tip goes to Twitter user @davideneco25320 for digging the photo up from the web, most likely from China's Weibo forum. It is an Ampere family photo shoot... Read more...
NVIDIA held some virtual briefings yesterday to provide some additional color to CEO Jensen Huang’s GeForce RTX 30 series event from earlier this week. There weren’t many significant new announcements made, but a number of the slides Jensen presented were fleshed-out a bit more, with additional details and a few new visuals revealed, that paint a more complete picture of Ampere and the GeForce RTX 3090, GeForce RTX 3080, and RTX 3070. If you haven’t already read our coverage of the launch event, we strongly suggest checking that out. There overview provided will lay the foundation from some of the deeper details presented here – and the pictures of the cards and Jensen’s... Read more...
It is fair to say that as far as launch events go, NVIDIA's high-anticipated GeForce RTX 30 series reveal was a hit. NVIDIA announced a trio of Ampere cards for the consumer sector—GeForce RTX 3090, GeForce RTX 3080, and GeForce RTX 3070—with specs and somewhat pleasantly surprising prices. It also left the door open for some questions, several of which it addressed in a follow-up question and answer session on Reddit. Several members of NVIDIA's community team coordinated with Reddit to make this happen. Questions were posed to the forum on September 1, and then answers were posted the next day, after NVIDIA had a chance to review them and extract information from the appropriate... Read more...
