NVIDIA's next-generation graphics architecture for the consumer market is highly anticipated. After all, the current-generation Pascal architecture was launched two year ago, although we've seen some meaningful updates at the high-end over that time period.  Given all the pent-up hype surrounding 12nm Turing GPU architecture, it's understandable that the rumormill is working overtime to try to piece together what NVIDIA has in store. The latest rumors suggest that at the heart of the GeForce GTX 1180 will be a GT104 GPU measuring around 400mm2 with 3584 CUDA cores. For comparison,... Read more...
Lest there was any doubt that ASUS was planning to roll out a new AREZ sub-brand for AMD's Radeon Series graphics cards, it's now official—ASUS announced the new "brand identity" for its lineup of Radeon RX products, explaining that it's derived from Arex, the Greek god of war. It's an appropriate designation, giving that AMD is going to war with NVIDIA over its GeForce Partner Program (GPP). The controversial program rewards add-in board (AIB) partners with a bevy of perks, including marketing funds and special promotions, in exchange for aligning their gaming brands exclusive with GeForce...

Updated 4/17/2018: The article below has been updated with a video from AMD which it hopes will drive its point home. If you've been following the graphics card market during the past few months, then you know about NVIDIA's GeForce Partner Program, or GPP. AMD is going on the offensive against GPP with a new blog post entitled, "Radeon RX Graphics: A Gamer’s Choice" that was penned by Scott Herkelman, General Manager of Gaming. But before we delve into the blog, we need to provide a little bit of background on what exactly GPP is and what it hopes to achieve. NVIDIA says that GPP has... Read more...
We have been hearing rumors of ASUS introducing an AREZ sub-brand for its graphics cards, and specifically for its AMD Radeon Series, and sure enough a visit to the company's website reveals that AREZ is real. While there are no cards listed under the new sub-brand at the moment, it seems pretty clear that ASUS will relegate its AMD cards to AREZ so that it can align is Republic of Gamers with NVIDIA's GeForce Partner Program (GPP). In case you have not been following that whole situation, there is a bit of controversy surrounding GPP, which provides additional marketing and sales support to vendors... Read more...

There was a lot of hype and excitement surrounding Vega, the latest GPU architecture from AMD, spearheaded by former Radeon Technologies Group boss Raja Koduri (who is now at Intel where, among other things, is working on a discrete gaming GPU). When it arrived, Vega brought parity to NVIDIA's Pascal architecture, which at the time had been on the market for a year. Looking ahead, there is chatter that AMD's next GPU architecture codenamed Navi will not propel the company ahead of NVIDIA in graphics, either. Navi's existence is not a secret by any means, though most of the details surrounding the... Read more...
There are more questions than answers surrounding NVIDIA's GeForce Partner Program (GPP), which offers hardware partners a slew of perks and support in exchange for aligning their gaming brands with NVIDIA's products. Beyond a blog post by NVIDIA announcing the program, companies have been willing to discuss the program in detail. As such, it's not clear which companies are choosing to participate, and which ones are not. However, there is a rumor that ASUS has opted to join the program, that it's creating a new AREZ sub-brand for AMD cards. We're taking this rumor with a pound of salt, but according... Read more...
For the most part, graphics card pricing has been out of whack for the past several months, due to both a memory chip shortage and a boom in cryptocurrency mining. It's been depressing for gamers, but the good news is there appears to be light at the end of the tunnel. While graphics cards are still selling for above MSRP, prices are trending downward, and in some cases are significantly lower than just a few months ago. This is true of both AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards. Mid-range and high-end options from both sides are cheaper now than they have been, and hopefully the trend continues...

Acer has announced refreshed Aspire Nitro 5 notebook computers, and while there are no visual changes to speak of, there is plenty going on under the hood that makes this a worth upgrade. The Nitro 5 has been updated to the latest 8th generation Intel Core i5 processors, and versions of the notebook with Core i7 processor will be arriving soon. The machines are aimed at casual gamers and pro users that need power for more complex workloads. "Acer is excited to be among the first to offer the new Intel Core i7+ processors with our new Nitro 5 gaming notebook," said Jerry Hou, General Manager,... Read more...
Two years after the launch of Pascal, the gaming community is eager to see what NVIDIA has in store for its next generation of graphics cards. Luckily for us, SK Hynix may have just given us some additional insight into when NVIDIA's upcoming consumer graphics cards – which include the GeForce GTX 1180 and GTX 1170 -- will launch thanks to comments that were made at GTC 2018. SK Hynix told Gamers Nexus that mass production of its GDDR6 memory (operating at speeds of at least 16Gbps) will take place within the next three months, which puts us on target for June/July. NVIDIA's next generation... Read more...
Of the over 28,000 attendees at NVIDIA’s GTC 2018 GPU Technology Conference, many converged on the San Jose Convention Center this week to learn about advancements in AI and Machine Learning that the company would bring to the table for developers, researchers and service providers in the field. Today, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang took to the stage to unveil a number of GPU-powered innovations for Machine Learning, including a new AI super computer and an updated version of the company’s powerful Tesla V100 GPU that now sports a hefty 32 Gigabytes of on-board HBM2 memory. NVIDIA Tesla V100... Read more...
We were first introduced to NVIDIA's 12nm Volta GV100 GPU architecture back in early May 2017 when the Tesla V100 Accelerator debuted. NVIDIA later extended its GV100 GPU to the Titan V (you can read the HotHardware review here), which is aimed at professional and academic deep learning applications. Now, NVIDIA is ready to unleash the Quadro GV100, which brings Volta GPU architecture to the company's lineup of professional graphics cards. NVIDIA is really throwing down the hammer with the Quadro GV100, as the graphics card has 32GB of HBM2 onboard, which is scalable to a 64GB addressable frame... Read more...
Let's rewind the game tape back to CES 2017; it's at this time that we were floored by the ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ display which measured 27 inches across and featured a 144Hz 4K HDR G-SYNC panel. A few months later, Acer countered with its Predator X27, offering largely the same specs. And after that... crickets. ASUS and Acer never released their draw-dropping displays, with both products seemingly being left in limbo. Now fast forward to today; two separate reports are claiming that the wait will soon be over for these fearsome displays. Both G-SYNC displays, which use an NVIDIA reference design,... Read more...
