We could be in for a delightfully wild ride in graphics once Computex and E3 roll around, or perhaps shortly thereafter. AMD will kick things off with a new round of graphics cards based on its Navi GPU architecture, and those could be interesting in and of themselves. Where things could truly heat up, however, is with how NVIDIA responds, and rumor has it the GPU maker is prepping a refresh of its high-end Turing parts. To this point, NVIDIA has focused on bringing Turing to the masses by following up the launch of pricey (and full featured) RTX parts with less expensive GTX models, including the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and GeForce GTX 1660, and more recently the GeForce GTX 1650. All of those cards... Read more...
There are two main trains of thought when it comes to updating drivers. One is to always install them right away to ensure you are protected from the latest threats, and that everything is working as intended. The second is to wait a bit to make sure there are not any unintended side effects, like sending your system into a reboot loop (it happens). If you prescribe to the latter philosophy and own a GeForce GPU, you may still want to go ahead and install the latest driver package rather than wait any longer. NVIDIA began pushing out its GeForce 430.64 WHQL driver package last Thursday (May 9), which delivered 'Game Ready' optimizations for Rage 2, Total War: Three Kingdoms, and World War Z,...

You may not realize it, but not all GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2070 graphics cards are created equal. We are not just talking about the custom cooling solutions and PCBs (printed circuit boards), but the actual GPUs inside for each model—NVIDIA separates its Turing GPU dies for those models into two categories, or at least that is how things used to be done. Not anymore, apparently. We reported on this separation of GPUs last November. Otherwise known as "binning," NVIDIA up to this point has offered its hardware partners a lower end (and presumably cheaper) variant of a GPU for non-overclocked cards, and a higher-end GPU for models that will be factory overclocked. Here's how things... Read more...
A couple of weeks back, NVIDIA launched the latest edition to its Turing-based GPU line-up, the GeForce GTX 1650. As its name suggests, the GeForce GTX 1650 is similar to the recently-released GeForce GTX 1660 and 1660 Ti, but it is powered by a different GPU with somewhat tamer specifications, which results in a lower price point as well. We’ll dig into the specifics in just a moment. As was the case with the GeForce GTX 1660 and 1660 Ti, there will be no Founder’s Edition version of the GeForce GTX 1650 arriving on store shelves. Instead, NVIDIA is relying on their add-in board partners to seed the market this time around. The card we’ll be looking at today is one the higher-end... Read more...
About a week ago, NVIDIA released its Game Ready Driver (430.39 WHQL) which fully supports the Windows 10 May 2019 Update. Although the May 2019 Update has already been pushed to the Release Preview ring, general consumers won’t get the update until sometime next month.  In addition to supporting Microsoft’s latest OS release, 430.39 WHQL also added support for seven new G-SYNC compatible monitor along with newly released graphics cards: the GeForce GTX 1650 on the desktop side, along with the mobile versions of the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and GeForce GTX 1650.  Unfortunately, the driver also introduced a rather nasty bug that caused CPU usage to spike erratically...

It seems like ages ago when NVIDIA launched the SHIELD K1 tablet, but it looks as though the company may be looking to make a successor to that discontinued device. Although we don't have any insight what this potential device could look like, references to a new tablet have been uncovered in newest version of NVIDIA's SHIELD Experience software. First spotted by XDA Developers, there are references in the code to a deice codenamed "Mystique." Although the SHIELD K1 tablet and the SHIELD TV both run the SHIELD Experience software, an update for the former hasn’t been released since March 2018. However, references in this latest code make point to a feature called "NvDtExp," which... Read more...
NVIDIA has been fleshing out its Turing GPU lineup at a steady clip since the introduction of its GeForce RTX series, which at the outset consisted of the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, 2080, and 2070. A GeForce RTX 2060 was not far behind, followed by a couple of Turing-based GTX parts, the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and 1660. Now we can add yet another model to the mix—the GeForce GTX 1650. The new addition comes as no surprise to anyone who follows the tech scene, particularly as it relates to gaming and graphics. That's because the GeForce GTX 1650 has been the subject of numerous leaks and rumors leading up to today's official launch. In fact, there is little in the way of surprises. This is the card...

Earlier this year at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2019), NVIDIA launched its GeForce RTX 20 Series mobility GPUs for gaming laptops. These Turing-based mobile GPUs brought top-notch gaming performance and hardware-accelerated real-time ray tracing with the GeForce RTX 2060, RTX 2070 and RTX 2080. Today, NVIDIA is pushing its mobility line-up a bit further downrange to hit better price points with Turing-based GeForce GTX products for laptops with its new GeForce GTX 1650 and GeForce GTX 1660 Ti GPUs. Just as on the desktop side of the equation, this new GeForce GTX 16 Series for laptops forgoes dedicated hardware to tackle real-time ray tracing and tensor cores for DLSS image... Read more...
In case you haven't been keeping up with all things Turing, NVIDIA is reportedly set to announce a new budget graphics card this week. Called the GeForce GTX 1650, this new SKU will sit at the very bottom of NVIDIA's Turing graphics card lineup. With an official launch eminent, it should come as no surprise that retail cards are beginning to leak out of the woodwork. In this case, VideoCardz has unearthed a whole slew of new GeForce GTX 1650 cards from ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI and Zotac. Here's the rundown of the latest bach of cards that have been leaked: ASUS GeForce GTX 1650 Dual OC GeForce GTX 1650 Phoenix OC GeForce GTX 1650 ROG Strix OC Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1650 Gaming OC GeForce...

A bombardment of leaks and rumors suggests NVIDIA is getting ready to unveil a GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card, to go along with other Turing-based GTX cards that have already launched. In addition, there is now reason to believe that a GeForce GTX 1650 Ti variant is in the works as well, with a whole bunch of custom models by NVIDIA's third-party partners ready to go with the new part. Before we get to the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti, let's quickly recap where we are at the moment. NVIDIA's Turing GPU architecture introduced itself to gamers by way of the company's GeForce RTX series, consisting of the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, GeForce RTX 2080, and GeForce RTX 2070. Later on came a more affordable GeForce... Read more...
NVIDIA this week hopped on Twitter to tease an upcoming mobile GPU launch, saying simply, "They're coming," along with a panned shot of a laptop keyboard. Donning our detective caps, we can reasonably determine NVIDIA is referring to mobile Turing GPUs that lack real-time ray tracing and Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS). In other words, mobile GTX parts based on the company's latest GPU architecture. For one, there already exist laptops based on NVIDA's GeForce RTX GPUs, from the likes of Alienware, ASUS, MSI, Razer, and others. That includes Max-Q Design variants, like the Razer Blade 15 with a GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q. So barring a complete surprise from NVIDIA, we are pretty sure what the... Read more...
There have been numerous leaks pointing to an upcoming GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card, and at this point, we would be shocked if it did not exist—there is too much evidence to suggests it does. What we are less fuzzy on, however, is when it will launch and for how much. Perhaps a fresh leak provides some clarification on those things. Source: Videocardz Some GeForce GTX 1650 listings have popped up on Amazon's website in France. The listings show several SKUs from EVGA, including the GeForce GTX 1650 XC Gaming, GeForce GTX 1650 XC Black Gaming, GeForce GTX 1650 XC Ultra Gaming, and GeForce GTX 1650 XC Ultra Black Gaming, priced from €169.99 to €189.99 (~$192 to $215 in US currency)....

Applause broke out from the crowd at GTC 2019 when NVIDIA showcased a modded version of Quake II with overhauled graphics featuring real-time ray tracing and HDR visuals. Quake II RTX, as it is called, looks almost like a completely different game than the original version that launched over two decades ago. It was an impressive demo for sure, but NVIDIA has bigger plans for the mod. "Our goal is to publish an open source version of Quake II RTX," Principal DevTech Engineer and Quake II RTX's lead programmer, Alexey Panteleev, told AusGamers in an interview. That will be a remarkable gift to both Quake II fans and modders alike. Despite its age, there is still a bunch of interest in Quake II,... Read more...
AOC is about to be giving ASUS and Acer some competition into the high-end monitor space with its new Agon AG353UCG. You can probably discern from the model name that this is a 35-inch display, but the devil is in the details. Not only is it big, the Agon AG353UCG sports a fast 200Hz refresh rate, HDR support, and a built-in G-Sync module. At the high-end of the display spectrum, ASUS and Acer have the ROG Swift PG27UQ and Predator X27, respectively. AOC's new Agon display is not trading blows with those panels directly, though there are notable similarities. For one, all three have fast refresh rates and built-in G-Sync modules, and they each can reach an eye-searing 1,000 nits brightness level... Read more...
