NVIDIA appears to have something waiting in the wings to take on a looming Navi threat from AMD. The company has posted a teaser video for an upcoming product that could be unveiled next week at Computex 2019.  NVIDIA isn't really giving us much to go on with the teaser, but the video is entitled "Something super is coming..." and the word "SUPER" is lit up at the end. So, what exactly does NVIDIA have lined up for gamers with this release? We heard rumors last week that NVIDIA would be releasing a refresh of its Turing-based GeForce RTX and GTX graphics cards. Reports indicated that we'd see boosted GPU clock and GDDR6 memory speeds to further increase performance. NVIDIA’s Turing... Read more...
For people that like to carry a thin-and-light notebook around with them, but might on occasion need some extra graphics horsepower either for games or professional work, external GPU enclosures are a blessing. Rather than be limited by a meager Intel IGP, for example, you can toss in a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti into an enclosure to instantly boost your GPU capabilities. Razer announced today that is launching the new Core X Chroma external GPU enclosure. At first glance, the most noticeable change over the standard Core X is the addition of Razer Chroma RGB lighting in the lower front of the enclosure and internally. In addition, the 650-watt power supply has given way to an uprated 700-watt... Read more...
NVIDIA has an obvious vested interest in seeing ray tracing technologies take off in a big way, both in the way they are adopted by developers and implemented into games, and how it is all received by consumers. To further showcase what ray tracing can do, NVIDIA has released some demos, and the best part (depending on your perspective) is that they run on past generation Pascal hardware. That's right, the latest examples of ray-traced visuals do not require a GeForce RTX series graphics card, though RTX hardware (RT and Tensor cores, essentially) will still offer the best experience. More on that in a minute, but first let's have a look a video NVIDIA put together that describes the different... Read more...
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that the battle royale game genre has exploded in the past two years. Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) kicked off the festivities, then Fortnite took the ball and ran with it. Now, a new challenger has entered the fray – Apex Legends – and has quickly amassed 50 million actives users (and counting) in just a month since it was initially released. With this in mind, eSports professionals and mainstream gamers alike are looking for any way possible to gain an advantage over the competition in these intense battle royale slugfests. It used to be that 60 fps was the holy grail for gamers looking for smooth, stutter... Read more...
The next installment in the Metro game series is here and for those not familiar, this game franchise is based on author Dmitry Glukhovsky's series of Metro novels that started with Metro 2033 back in 2005. As far as the written lore of the game is concerned, the first installment in the genre was Metro 2033, which was then followed by Metro Last Light (and Last Light Redux) and today we'll be looking at the latest release, Metro Exodus.    Like other releases in the Metro series, Metro Exodus follows a post-apocalyptic story line that takes place in the former Russian Federation, where the world has mostly been wiped out in a nuclear holocaust. Your character is Artyom, a... Read more...
If you're of a certain age, then Quake 2 probably holds a special place in your heart. From its [at the time] state-of-the-art graphics, to its robust LAN multiplayer component, to its frequent use as a benchmark for graphics cards, Quake 2 built up quite the following. Quake 2 was released over two decades ago, but is now being given a modern makeover, courtesy of real-time ray tracing. A group of developers has released what they call QUAKE II PATHTRACED or Q2VKPT. It is being billed as a proof-of-concept exercise to show what can be accomplished in future games with fully-realized real-time ray tracing effects. And the good news is, you can play it right now on GeForce RTX cards. As you can... Read more...
We've seen a lot of Hot Hardware this week at CES 2019, including a few desktop and notebook systems from CyberPowerPC. We have the feeling that the company is really into Thor and Asgardians in general, because the first system that we bumped up against was the Ragnarok. The Ragnarok features a massive E-ATX chassis that can be equipped with a dual-chamber power supply, each with their own separate power button. That second power supply can be used to power a separate Mini-ITX system mounted within the chassis.  Ragnarok Powering the [primary] system is a 9th generation Intel Core i9-9980XE processor that is backed by a Gigabyte X299 Designare motherboard. Also thrown... Read more...
In case anyone is wondering, NVIDIA is not feeling threatened by AMD's recently unveiled Radeon VII graphics card, which is the first implementation of a 7-nanometer GPU in a consumer gaming product. During a Q&A session with members of the media, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang called the overall performance of the Radeon VII "lousy" and said his company's GeForce RTX 2080, which is priced the same, will "crush" it. NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang At Private Press Q&A With HotHardware And Other Press That's really just barely scratching the surface of what Huang had to say—he railed on AMD's product launch, shared his opinion about FreeSync, and even had something to say about Intel getting into...

Dell didn't just set out to build an incredibly fast gaming laptop with its latest Alienware offering -- it wanted to build the world's fastest mobile gaming rig and it has likely succeeded magnificently. Witness the Area-51m, which is a beastly machine that is factory overclocked and designed to handle pretty much any game that you throw its way. More importantly, the Area-51m is immensely upgradable, with customers being able to swap out their GPUs and the onboard CPU. Speaking of the graphics card, the Area-51m can accommodate NVIDIA's new real-time ray-tracing graphics cards, topping out with the GeForce RTX 2080. These GPUs are affixed to a module which can be [relatively] easily removed... Read more...
We've already covered a number of new laptops that are packing NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX mobile GPUs, which brings real-time ray tracing to the gaming laptop sector. The new GPUs are available in three SKUs: RTX 2060, RTX 2070 and RTX 2080. At this time, there is no mobile counterpart to the RTX 2080 Ti. According to NVIDIA, the latest crop of GeForce RTX-equipped laptops come equipped with WhisperMode, Battery Boost and G-SYNC technologies. In addition, nearly 20 of the new notebooks that have been announced feature a Max-Q design (RTX 2070 and RTX 2080 SKUs) to enable thin, quiet, and efficient laptops. With that being said, here's a quick and dirty rundown of all the laptops announced with... Read more...
GeForce RTX 2060 rumors began circulating soon after the launch of the initial batch of cards. Some of the news suggested that NVIDIA would do away with the RT and Tensor cores in the more mainstream-targeted RTX 2060, and omit support for real-time Ray Tracing and DLSS as a result. Well, as it turns out, those rumors couldn’t have been more wrong. In fact, the new GeForce RTX 2060 we’ll be showing you here today is based on the very same Turing TU106 GPU that powers the higher-end GeForce RTX 2070, with a handful of tweaks, of course. Just like its x60-branded predecessors, the GeForce RTX 2060 offers the very same features as its higher-end counterparts, but the GPU is pared down... Read more...
As has been the tradition for the last few years, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang got on stage in Las Vegas to host the company’s annual pre-CES keynote. Though Jensen’s last few CES keynotes have featured a myriad of AI, Deep Learning, and autonomous vehicle related news, this year’s keynote focused almost solely on gaming and the advanced brought forth by the company’s Turing GPU architecture. The talk began with a brief history on rasterization on how fidelity has improved over the last decade and a half, before pivoting to RTX technology and a discussion about how AI and ray tracing will usher in more photo-realistic imagery moving forward. To that end, Jensen showed a new... Read more...
Acer announced that its upcoming Predator Triton 500 and Predator Triton 900 gaming laptops will come equipped with NVIDIA's GeForce RTX graphics processors. In addition to the high-end hardware, these systems both have special features that help them to stand out from the competition. We got our first look at the Acer Predator Triton 900 last year, which features a unique convertible design. The notebook's 17.3" 4K IPS display uses a specialized CNC-machined Ezel Aero hinge that connects to the center of the display on its left and right sides. The display can be set just like a normal PC, or it can be rotated and set into tablet mode. "We are pushing the envelope on what a gaming notebook can... Read more...
Today is NVIDIA GeForce RTX Mobility day, which means that a number of announcements will be coming down in the coming hours regarding the new mobile-centric gaming GPUs. The latest company to announce new products based around the new family of GPUs is Dell, which is pushing both the Alienware m15 (our full review) and Alienware m17. The Alienware m15 and m17 are two peas from the same pod, with the former being built around a 15-inch display, while the latter makes use of a 17.3-inch display. No matter which notebook you select, you'll have the choice of a 1080p (up to 144Hz on the m15) or 4K display panel. The m17 also offers a third option: a 2560x1440 panel with a 120Hz refresh...
