Well, this is definitely a break from the norm. ASUS has just announced its new Republic of Gamers (ROG) Mothership, which is a desktop-replacement gaming notebook that manages to pack quite a bit of hardware into a truly unique form-factor. At first glance, the ROG Mothership looks somewhat like an all-in-one desktop, as the display sits upright and is propped up by a rear-mounted step-less kickstand. However, you'll then see that it also includes a keyboard that can be attached or used wirelessly. When attached to the ROG Mothership, the keyboard is fully extended and sits at an incline. However, once detached, the keyboard can be folded (basically doubling its height) allowing you to position... Read more...
Well, what do we have here? It looks as though a Chinese hardware OEM has jumped the gun by dishing out some specs on NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce RTX Mobility lineup. The manufacturer in question is CJSCOPE, and the company has revealed specs for its HX-950 GX (15-inch) and HX-970 GX (17-inch) gaming notebooks. According to the company, there will be three Turing SKUs available (at least initially), represented by “Mobility” versions of the GeForce RTX 2060, GeForce RTX 2070 and GeForce RTX 2080. All of the GPUs use the Mobile PCI Express Module (MXM) interface and will be used in rather bulky machines using desktop-class Intel Core i9 processors (which means that... Read more...

We already know that NVIDIA's GeForce RTX family of gaming GPUs are beastly performers, and they are also the first-generation of gaming cards that can handle real-time ray tracing. But that's not all that NVIDIA has up its sleeve with respect to its new Turing GPUs. The company is also touting its mesh shaders, which help to enhance image quality while at the same time maintaining high levels of overall performance. Mesh shading is a programmable geometric shading pipeline that uses what NVIDIA calls cooperative thread groups to create compact meshes on-chip. The main purpose of mesh shading is to offload some heavy computational lifting from the CPU in order to leverage the immense processing... Read more...
The much anticipated, and sometimes controversial, next installment in the Battlefield franchise is here. There are many aspects to the game, like the World War II setting for example, which have gamers questioning whether or not we need yet another FPS set in the same era in history, especially in light of last year's Call of Duty WWII. The thing that has had most of us tech enthusiasts waiting with baited breath, however, is the chance to finally see NVIDIA's GeForce RTX  real-time Ray Tracing effects live, in an actual game. Battlefield is indeed the first publicly available game to use these new DXR/RTX effects and it's exciting to finally see new technology employed, beyond the standard... Read more...
Have you been holding off buying a new gaming laptop in anticipation of NVIDIA's Turing GPU architecture being ported over to mobile? Well, good news—it appears NVIDIA and its OEM partners are getting ready to introduce laptop models featuring mobile versions of the GPU maker's GeForce RTX series in the near future. There has already been (unofficial) chatter of NVIDIA prepping its mobile GeForce RTX series for a launch right before the Consumer Electronics Shows (CES) in Las Vegas next month. While that is not for certain of course, the latest round of leaks suggest it's at least plausible. As spotted by Twitter user and notorious leaker TUM APISAK, there are several mobile GeForce RTX...

Beginning tomorrow, DICE will launch a major update for Battlefield V entitled Tides of War Chapter 1: Overture. That name is quite a mouthful, but the update/patch brings with it a number of new features and even performance updates. As for actual gameplay, there are new multiplayer maps and changes to the core mechanics of the game. There's even a new single-player experience in the form of "The Last Tiger" War Story. This campaign will let you crew a Tiger I tank along enemy lines. You can also partake in action on the new Panzerstorm map (set in the Belgium countryside) during multiplayer outings. Other new features include a Practice Range for getting a handle on all the weapons included... Read more...
UL Benchmarks' 3DMark is adding real-time ray tracing support to its suite of benchmarks thanks to support for the DirectX Raytracing API. The new test is called 3DMark Port Royal and will support any graphics card that is compatible with DirectX Raytracing. UL Benchmarks says that it worked with some of the top tech titans in the gaming industry including Intel, AMD, and NVIDIA to make sure that the benchmark is representative of the performance that we can expect from current- and next-generation hardware. Right now, the only graphics cards that support DirectX Raytracing without being hit with a severe performance penalty is NVIDIA's GeForce RTX family. Currently, the GeForce RTX... Read more...
We have seen a flurry of product launches over the past few months from Intel, AMD, and NVIDIA. While we get to reap the rewards of technology’s ever steady march of progress, their partners have been hard at work ensuring their offerings can withstand the ever increasing demands of bleeding-end hardware, and appeal to consumers at the same time. In this spirit, Gigabyte recently invited us to a launch event in Miami for its newest Aorus branded motherboards, graphics cards, and peripherals. Technically, everything Gigabyte showed us had already been announced, but the presentations did offer a glimpse into many of the engineering and marketing decisions the company has made in an...

At the moment, NVIDIA's current-generation Turing GPU family consists of three graphics cards: the GeForce RTX 2070, RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti. However, according to multiple reports, there will be a new, cheaper entry to the family in the coming months. The alleged entry-level graphics card has shown up in the leaktastic Final Fantasy XV benchmark. What’s interesting is that the card is listed as the GeForce RTX 2060, while other reports have suggested that the card would be called the GeForce GTX 2060 since it wouldn't provide adequate real-time ray tracing performance for modern games (a la Battlefield V). In fact, some have reported that the card might... Read more...
Battlefield V is one of the most highly anticipated games of 2018 and its wide release occurred today. While the game will cost you $59.99 if you purchase it right now, NVIDIA is offering up a deal that is just too good to pass up if you're in the market for the fastest gaming GPUs on the market. As part of its Black Friday and Cyber Monday promotions, NVIDIA announced today that anyone that purchases a new GeForce RTX 2070, GeForce RTX 2080 or GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card will get a free copy of Battlefield V. The promotion is available if you purchase a standalone graphics card or a new desktop PC from a "participating partner" that has one of the above-named... Read more...
Alienware's beastly Area-51 gaming desktop is getting a specs upgrade today with the addition of new second-generation AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors. Alienware began using Ryzen Threadripper last year in the Area-51 when AMD’s HEDT processor lineup was initially launched. This time around, Alienware is providing two additional processor options: the Threadripper 2920X (12 cores, 24 threads) and the Threadripper 2950X (16 cores, 32 threads). For those that prefer to keep the price tag of the Area-51 from ballooning quickly, the first-generation Ryzen Threadripper 1900X (8 cores, 16 threads) is also available. All of the processors find a home on Alienware's custom... Read more...
