We reported over the weekend that a few different vendors have been teasing their upcoming GeForce GTX 1060 models, which for an unreleased card is quite interesting, but it has helped increase the momentum of NVIDIA's hype train. Now, ZOTAC has decided to get in on the action by announcing its own models that are... Read more...
It's been quite an eventful week since AMD took the veil off of its latest graphics card, the Radeon RX 480. Right out of the gate, murmurs of issues began to surface around the internet, largely focusing on the amount of power that gets pulled through a motherboard's PCIe slot. While AMD acknowledges that this is... Read more...
AMD is working on a driver fix that will address the power draw of the Radeon RX 480, its first Polaris part and a graphics card we determined is easily the best value in its price segment (see our full review for more in-depth coverage). The driver, Radeon Software 16.7.1, is in the final testing stage and will... Read more...
It's been discovered that some Radeon RX 480 graphics cards are pulling more power from the PCI-Express slot than what is allowed by spec, which is 75W. In theory, going over spec could damage lower end motherboards and there have already been some claims of that happening. As a result, AMD is working on an updated... Read more...
Remember that scene when Al Pacino playing the part of Scarface famously said, "Say hello to my little friend!"? Well now NVIDIA is bringing out the big gun in PCI Express form in what it considers the "most advanced data center GPU ever built," the Tesla P100, a crazy fast GPU accelerator based on NVIDIA's powerful...

It's shaping up to be an exciting summer for PC gamers. First NVIDIA threw down the gauntlet with its Pascal cards, the muscular GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070, both of which are faster than a Titan X, and then AMD launched Polaris in mid-range form with the Radeon RX 480. Normally a mid-range part wouldn't be all that exciting, especially Read more...
Building your own computer can be an extremely satisfying experience, but that doesn't mean that anyone has to shrug off potential improvements that would make that experience even smoother, right? Have you ever wanted to, for example, make the motherboard and graphics card into a single unit? If you didn't, the folks... Read more...
AMD launched its very first Polaris-based graphics card yesterday, the Radeon RX 480, and it has the potential to open up VR gaming to a wider audience. That's because it's priced at just $199, making it accessible to a mainstream audience while bringing enthusiast class performance to the VR party. It was an exciting... Read more...

If you work a typical... Read more...
Beyond the occasional nugget from AMD, concrete details about its forthcoming Polaris GPU architecture are hard to come by. We've mostly had to rely on leaked information and rumors, and if the latest leaked roadmap is to believed, Polaris will replace both the Radeon Fury and Radeon 300 series of graphics... Read more...
There's really no such thing as a 'one-size-fits-all' solution when it comes to computing, and that's especially true for professionals who need varying degrees of graphics performance. For that reason, NVIDIA is now offering a version of its Quadro M6000 graphics card with 24GB of GDDR5 memory, twice as much memory... Read more...
We'd all love to wield dual Titan X graphics cards in our gaming systems, but pesky things like mortgages, college funds for the kids, and food bills tend to prevent us from such willy-nilly spending habits. Luckily manufacturers take these things into account and release more pedestrian level graphics cards, as ASUS... Read more...
AMD had lots of great stuff to show off in its suite at this year's CES, but one thing that stood out was a simple box that sat next to a thin notebook: an external graphics card enclosure. Now, we've been seeing this kind of product for many years - including from AMD itself - and not one of them has ever stuck. AMD... Read more...
In advance of what's sure to be a barrage of VR-related product hitting the market over the next couple of months, a VR-focused conference took place last week in Los Angeles. Appropriately called VRLA, this conference covered all things current and up-and-coming revolving around VR. It also included presentations... Read more...
Well here's some fantastic news, many of you reading this need not bother with paying a premium for discrete graphics in your next build!  Do you believe it? That's the exaggerated takeaway from Intel's claim that its integrated Iris and Iris Pro graphics can hang with and overpower 80 percent of the graphics chips on... Read more...
Big things are happening in graphics over at Advanced Micro Devices. That first became clear when AMD elevated Raja Koduri to head up its newly formed Radeon Technologies Group earlier this year, and in the two months since then, he's been busy planning out the future, which he recently discussed with industry...

When it comes to new graphics cards, we're used to talking about things like frame rates and gaming performance at different resolutions. You might think a new dual GPU offering from NVIDIA would elicit similar commentary, but that isn't the case with the NVS 810, a Maxwell-based graphics card with an impressive... Read more...
With all the hype surrounding AMD's use of High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) for its Fury line of graphics card, you would be excused for thinking GDDR5 memory had died and become a footnote. You'd also be wrong. There's still more bandwidth to be squeezed out of GDDR5 memory, and that's what Micron has done. The Boise... Read more...
