Newegg has rolled out a GPU trade-in program that gives buyers varying amounts of credit on their old graphics cards when purchasing new ones. Ostensibly, this is a move to reduce to e-waste, though we'd like to see the actual buyers who are going around tossing GeForce RTX 3080 and Radeon RX 6800 cards into the garbage bin. Newegg's pat-on-the-back Read more...
Boy, we love the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC). It's not that we do business in their territory, or anything like that. It's just that every filing made with the group is public, and the details are posted on its website. This frequently gives us a sneak peek into possible upcoming products, although we should...

Discrete graphics card shipments are on the rise again and this time it has nothing (or very little) to do with cryptocurrency mining. Instead, the "robustness" of GPU shipments in the second quarter of 2023 can be attributed to the buzz surrounding Starfield, Bethesda's first original IP in 25 years, and other... Read more...
When AMD was first announcing the RDNA 3 architecture around the release of its Radeon RX 7900 XT and XTX graphics cards, the watchword for the new design was "power efficiency". AMD endlessly emphasized that efficiency was the end goal for its new architecture, and promised huge efficiency gains out of RDNA... Read more...
The latest GPU shipment report from the graphics auditors at Jon Peddie Research reveals that add-in boards (AIBs) are selling surprisingly well, even amid grumblings about how the latest crop of graphics cards are priced. According to the report, there was a "significant increase in shipments" during a quarter that... Read more...
UL Solutions, the creators behind 3DMark, have launched a new 3DMark ray tracing benchmark called Solar Bay that is designed to stress test and benchmark GPUs. This new benchmark is different from 3DMark’s other ray tracing benchmarks, like Port Royal and Speed Way in that it supports both Android and Windows PCs. As... Read more...
When Intel originally introduced the Arc graphics card family to us, it was described as including three tiers of cards, just like the company's Core i- family of CPUs originally did. The Arc 3 were to be entry-level GPUs, the Arc 5 were to be mid-range gaming parts, and the Arc 7 were to be performance-class parts... Read more...
AMD officially unveiled its third Radeon RX 7900 series graphics card at ChinaJoy today, known as the RX 7900 Golden Rabbit Edition — or GRE for short.

An incredibly rare 20GB variant of the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti was spotted on the Facebook marketplace where an Australian seller is selling the card for $1100.

Remember the GeForce GTX 280? The "GT200" GPU was a gigantic beast that maxed out the limits of the "Tesla" design it was based on. It boasted 32 ROPs and something almost unseen in graphics cards before or since: a 512-bit GDDR memory bus. Well, NVIDIA could be bringing the half-kilobit bus back when the next... Read more...
Can you believe we're already a quarter of the way into July and past the halfway point of 2023? A new month means a new middle version number for the latest Radeon driver release, naturally numbered 23.7.1.

NVIDIA has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years, as it skirts a one-TRILLION-dollar market valuation.

The latest such allegation comes... Read more...
It turns out that NVIDIA’s RTX 4070 is not carrying the same 16-pin power connector found on other RTX 40 series graphics cards. After careful inspection from Igor at Igor’s Lab, he found that the RTX 4070 Founders Edition and 16-pin equipped AIB partner cards are carrying a modified 16-pin power connector that... Read more...
The Intel Arc A770 Limited Edition is dead, long live the Arc A770!
