A new report claims two power connection standards will be available for the upcoming RTX 4070 based on two different power-limit classes. Igor's Lab claims more expensive 225W variants will reportedly feature the latest 12VHPWR connector, while 200W MSRP RTX 4070 models will be equipped with the older 8-pin power... Read more...
Virtualization-based Security, as the name suggests, is a security system that uses the Windows hypervisor (Hyper-V) to virtualize sensitive portions of the Windows operating system against exploits and malware. One example of VBS is related to Hypervisor-Enforced Code Integrity (HVCI), which uses VBS to create a... Read more...
Intel's Arc GPUs launched in a bit of a rough state, and early reviews were critical of both the cards' inconsistent performance and relatively high power consumption. However, Intel's been working hard to reverse those fortunes in its driver—both the performance and the power concerns. On top of that, the company has... Read more...
NVIDIA is hosting an event at GDC 2023 that will discuss the integration of path tracing technology into Cyberpunk 2077's highly anticipated RT Overdrive graphics mode. NVIDIA's senior developer technology engineer Pawel Kozlowski, and CD Project Red's global art director Jakub Knapik will be speaking at the event... Read more...
Throughout the end of last year and the beginning of this year, Intel finally released its full line of data center-focused Arctic Sound and Ponte Vecchio GPUs, as well as its Sapphire Rapids CPUs. These chips have been a long time coming, but they offer solid performance for high performance compute operations, as... Read more...
"RDNA 4?" you cry, "but RDNA 3 just came out!" Indeed it did, and the release of AMD's Radeon RX 7900 XT and RX 7900 XTX graphics cards just two months ago marked the debut of AMD's third iteration of its RDNA graphics architecture. Despite that, AMD's already talking-up RDNA 4. In an interview with Japanese site... Read more...
For sure, the GeForce RTX 4090, RTX 4080, and RTX 4070 Ti are cool graphics cards, but the value proposition as well as the way the specifications are trending have left some folks wondering what lower-end Ada Lovelace-based GeForce GPUs will look like. Well, we may have our first peek at an upcoming desktop GeForce... Read more...
Previous rumors have suggested that AMD could boost its GPU portfolio by adding a stack of 3D V-Cache, a performance enhancing technique established with its Ryzen CPUs. Now, an engineer with access to micrographic infrared imaging equipment has discovered that the existing Radeon RX 7900 XT GPU appears to be 3D... Read more...
There are many examples of why buyers should beware if they are considering perusing the used market for graphics cards. However, sellers of used, and possibly abused, old graphics cards have hit upon a new technique to deceive GPU hungry folk—painting memory chips to make them look factory fresh. After prolonged...

The latest NVIDIA GPUs require a new 12VHPWR power cable. That means new challenges for anyone obsessed with cable management. As it stands today, 8-pin to 12VHPWR adapters are bulky and the first wave of cards that require them are enormous. But CableMod is coming to the rescue. The company plans to release a 12VHPWR...

A photo of a graphics card PCB with an NVIDIA AD103-301 GPU installed has been shared on a Chinese language tech forum. The image is clear enough to make out the GPU model number moderately easily and, if genuine, shows the PCB in a new breed of GeForce RTX 4080 graphics cards on the way from NVIDIA’s partners. The...

Most of the time, when a graphics card fails, you'll either return it to the manufacturer (assuming it's inside its warranty period), sell it to someone for parts, or simply discard it. You could, however, send it to a repair shop like Germany's KrisFix. Around the world, electronics enthusiasts are starting repair... Read more...
So Intel's first discrete GPUs based on the Alchemist design, known as Arc A770, Arc A750, and Arc A380, have been out for a bit. Since that launch, they've seen significant performance improvements thanks to driver updates as well as the implementation of XeSS in titles like Marvel's Spider-Man, Hitman 3, and Redout...

Judging by the performance of the Radeon RX 7900 XTX, AMD's RDNA 3 architecture is a strong step up over its previous-generation RDNA 2 GPUs. It offers a huge leap in ray-tracing performance as well as improved power efficiency. Improved efficiency is a huge boon in mobile applications, so it's no surprise that AMD is being aggressive about Read more...
NVIDIA is promising a "quantum leap in performance" from the next generation of Studio laptops that employ its newly minted mobile GeForce RTX 40 series GPUs, compared to the previous generation lineup. That essentially means both gamers and content creators will be able to benefit from NVIDIA's latest and greatest... Read more...
NVIDIA's CES announcements were dominated by new product launches. First up was the desktop GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, and there was the new GeForce RTX 4080 tier for GeForce NOW, too. Arguably the most important of the announcements was the launch of Ada Lovelace GPUs for laptops. It's a whole family this time, ranging... Read more...
Here's something most HotHardware readers probably know: the same GPU core is used for many different models of graphics card. Case in point: the GA102 processor is used for every GeForce RTX 3000-series model from the RTX 3080 on up the stack. However, what you may not know is that it can go the other way: sometimes...

AMD's latest GPUs are launching tomorrow (December 13), and you might actually be able to buy one without waiting in line overnight. Kyle Bennett, founder of HardOCP, reports that AMD has prepped a whopping 200,000 Radeon RX 7900 video cards for launch day. That would be a nice change of pace after years of seeing... Read more...
Did you check out our review of the new RDNA-3-based Radeons yet? Those GPUs are extremely high-powered in every sense, and that means that they're out of reach for the majority of the market. Intel's Raja Koduri apparently intends to target exactly that meaty middle, as he recently told a group of Indian tech... Read more...
One of the sticking points hampering adoption of Intel's Arc GPUs has been its performance in older titles, particularly those using much older versions of the DirectX API. You could argue that it doesn't matter whether the card gets 150 or 300 FPS in CS:GO, but some people take that kind of distinction very... Read more...
NVIDIA finds itself as the sole player in the next-gen GPU market with its GeForce RTX 4090 and GeForce RTX 4080 graphics card, and that will continue to be the case until AMD releases its Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon RX 7900 XT to retail next week. Interestingly, and maybe not coincidentally, NVIDIA just lowered the... Read more...
