'Tis the season to be jolly, and to help get you in a happy state of mind, NVIDIA and its retailer partners are serving up some jolly good discounts on a range of gaming hardware. You can save several hundred dollars on a gaming desktop, and there are some deep price cuts coming to gaming laptops, G-SYNC monitors, and more. Some of the deals are actually Black Friday and Cyber Monday discounts, in that the discounted price cuts will go into effect later this week. However, there are a bunch of bargains you can take advantage of right now. One of is a $20 discount on a SHIELD Android TV streaming media player. NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV - $129.99 at Amazon (save $20) This one is an early Black Friday... Read more...
The evidence that a GeForce RTX 3060 Ti release is right around the bend is piling up. Every day seems to bring a fresh leak or rumor, and today is no exception—purported benchmark scores of NVIDIA's unannounced card have shown up at two different places, those being the Ashes of the Singularity database, and over at Geekbench. Before we get to the benchmark numbers, let's recap the leaked specifications. An apparent GeForce RTX 3060 Ti listing by Manli seemingly confirms the card will ship with 4,864 CUDA cores and 8GB of GDDR6 memory (14Gbps), with a 256-bit memory bus delivering 448GB/s of memory bandwidth. Manli's listing also showed it having a 1,410MHz base clock and 1,665MHz boost... Read more...
Ultrabook laptops are typically not the best performers when it comes to anything outside of casual browsing or light workloads. They may have a decent CPU, but the GPU almost always lacks for people who want to game or do some heavy work, such as editing. Therefore, GPU enclosures are incredibly handy, as you can just plug them into a laptop and have the full power of a GPU at your disposal when needed. Gigabyte has now kicked things up a notch with the AORUS RTX 3090/3080 GAMING BOX, the “world’s 1st water-cooled external graphics” enclosure. The AORUS Gaming Box is equipped with either a liquid-cooled NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 or GeForce RTX 3080 that connects to your laptop... Read more...
It is starting seem like it is no longer a question of whether or not NVIDIA will flesh out its Ampere lineup with a GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, but how many times will the unannounced SKU leak before it gets announced? At least one more time, apparently. The latest leak seemingly reveals a big list of specifications, if the information turns out to be accurate. The only thing we can say for sure is that NVIDIA will eventually get around to launching more Ampere cards. It came out of the gate with three high solutions, including the GeForce RTX 3090 (this generation's Titan RTX, basically) priced at $1,499, GeForce RTX 3080 priced at $699, and the GeForce RTX 3070 priced at $499. Then AMD followed suit... Read more...

The somewhat fractured nature of the real time ray tracing on the PC is coming to a head with the upcoming release of Cyberpunk 2077. We've known for quite some time that CD Projekt Red would support ray tracing effects in Cyberpunk 2077, and the company has been working closely with NVIDIA to enable support on GeForce RTX 20/30 Series hardware. However, we're getting the somewhat disappointing news this weekend that Cyberpunk 2077 ray tracing support will be exclusive to GeForce RTX cards at launch. Some might be a bit confused considering that Cyberpunk 2077 isn't using some propriety NVIDIA implementation of RTX ray tracing. Instead, the developer is using the industry standard DirectX...

EVGA's new GeForce RTX 3090 Kingpin Hybrid Gaming graphics card (24G-P5-3998-KR) is, in a word, boss. It is also expensive, which comes as no surprise—the GeForce RTX 3090 is NVIDIA's flagship Ampere card for consumers (basically this generation's Titan RTX), and the Kingpin Hybrid Gaming edition kicks things up a notch with an all-in-one liquid cooler attached. This is basically for people who not only want the best of the best, but the best of the best of the best, if you can follow all that. And for extreme overclocking attempts. Serving as the backbone is a 12-layer printed circuit board powered by an "extreme power design with extreme overclocking in mind." It sports integrated "Smart... Read more...
Cyberpunk 2077 news has been ramping up quite a bit in the past few weeks -- namely because of a recently announced delay -- but CD Projekt Red is giving us some more insight into the game leading up to its eventual launch. Today, we've getting another glimpse at Night City in all its ray traced glory. The video comes to us from NVIDIA, which managed to get some interviews with the CD Projekt Red team members to talk about what they're doing to bring Night City to life. Interspersed with those interviews are some nice gameplay images of Cyberpunk 2077 running full-tilt with real time ray tracing enabled. In this case, the demo is of course running on GeForce RTX 30 hardware, and... Read more...
It looks as though relief for enthusiasts isn't coming anytime soon if you want one of NVIDIA's highly rated GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards. NVIDIA has cited overwhelming demand as it struggles to not only deliver its own Founders Edition cards to customers, but also GPUs that find their way into custom boards from its various board partners. NVIDA CEO Jensen Huang previous stated that he expected supply issues to last through at least the end of 2020. However, on this week's earnings call, NVIDIA CFO Colette Kress explained that eager customers will be waiting into 2021 for relief. "While we had anticipated strong demand, it exceeded even our bullish expectation," said... Read more...
In September, Apple revealed new App Store guidelines for game streaming apps. However, these rules were not conducive to streaming as they required games to be downloaded first from the App Store. This sort of requirement is not workable, so companies such as Microsoft with Project xCloud and NVIDIA with GeForce NOW sought workarounds. It seems NVIDIA was the first to the pass, as it is now offering GeForce NOW in the iOS browser, Safari. According to NVIDIA, “GeForce NOW transforms underpowered or incompatible hardware into high-performance GeForce gaming rigs.” Previously, only Android devices had the game streaming capability due to Apple’s draconian rules. That changes... Read more...
NVIDIA's A100 based on Ampere was already considered the go-to GPU for high performance computing (HPC), but lest any challengers seek to knock the part off its perch, they will now have to contend with a version that has twice as much high bandwidth memory as before, with a massive 80GB HBM2e memory buffer. Yeah, it's like that. The first version of the A100 with 40GB of HBM2 debuted in May and marked the official introduction of Ampere, NVIDIA's latest generation GPU architecture. It is still available, of course, and boasts 1.6TB/s of memory bandwidth to tackle HPC applications. The latest iteration, however, kicks things up a notch with a lot more memory and more bandwidth. According to NVIDIA,... Read more...
It seems like everybody on the planet is clamoring to build a new gaming PC, and that has left many components in very short supply. That cavalcade of hardware that nobody can get their hands on started in mid-September with the GeForce RTX 30 series, based on NVIDIA's Ampere GPU technology. One just has to look at our review of the RTX 3080 to understand why; NVIDIA turned the stagnant performance to cost ratio on its head for the first time since Pascal way back in 2016. As a result, the cards are just exceedingly hard to come by right now. The supply is so outstripped by gamers' thirst for high frame rates that ASUS' ROG UK Twitter account posted an apology. It says the company understands... Read more...
Earlier this week, Apple dropped a bombshell on the computing world with its new M1 SoC, which is the first in a [likely] long line of custom, in-house Arm chips that will power the company's Macs. The M1 in its current form(s) is available in the MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro, and the Mac mini. When announcing the M1, Apple confirmed that the M1 features an 8-core processor, which consists of 4 high-performance cores and 4 efficiency cores. Apple also explained that there was [up to] an 8-core GPU onboard capable of delivering 2.6 TFLOPs compute for graphics-intensive content creation apps and games. Despite this, Apple didn't really provide us with any concrete performance... Read more...
NVIDIA will no doubt flesh out its GeForce RTX 30 series with more SKUs, though when and exactly what is coming are questions that have yet to be answered. Officially, anyway. Unofficially, there have been numerous leaks and rumors pointing to a GeForce RTX 3060 Ti launching soon, and it looks like MSI is ready with a full lineup. Incidentally, the rumored release date keeps changing. Back in the first half of September, it was suggested the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti would launch in October. Then later in the month, the chatter suggested a November launch. That is still possible—there is more than half a month left—but the most recent rumors now point to early December. If you are looking... Read more...
NVIDIA fired the first shot in the next-gen GPU wars with its Ampere cards, and namely the GeForce RTX 30 series for consumer desktops. Then AMD responded with Big Navi, or its Radeon RX 6000 series, with its own internal benchmarks showing highly competitive performance. So, what's next? NVIDIA might fire a second round of cards, including a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, very soon. We do not know this for sure, of course, because the rumor mill is not always accurate. That said, rumors and leaks related to more Ampere cards have been piling up lately—there's also talk of a GeForce RTX 3060 (and/or a Ti variant), and other models being in the pipeline. Trying to figure out what is real and what... Read more...
NVIDIA no doubt impressed the enthusiast community when it launched the initial members of its Ampere family: the GeForce RTX 3800 and GeForce RTX 3090. Both of those cards offer a significant uplift in performance compared to their GeForce RTX 20 Series predecessors, and they immediately sold out when they launched.  The GeForce RTX 3070 launched later with GeForce RTX 2080 Ti levels of performance, and the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is tipped to launch in early December priced at $399. But NVIDIA is reportedly going even deeper into entry-level territory -- just as it did with previous generations -- by releasing a GeForce RTX 3050. Specs for the card have been revealed by hardware... Read more...
NVIDIA has announced a pivotal partnership today with Hyundai, which will see its DRIVE platform find its way into all of the automaker’s vehicles. This includes the mainstream Hyundai and Kia brands along with the luxury-oriented Genesis brand, which is now starting to gain traction in the United States. That means that whether you purchase a lowly Kia Rio or a top-of-the-line Genesis G80, you'll have access to NVIDIA's powerful in-vehicle infotainment platform within the coming years. According to NVIDIA, DRIVE will be standard in all models starting in 2022, and will power audio, video, navigation and "AI-enhanced connect car services" within the vehicles. NVIDIA is providing...

In September, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 launched and, while they still are mostly out of stock, people who got their hands on one could be looking to customize their rare find. As we reported in our review of the card, the GeForce RTX 3080 is a gaming monster that can get a little hot under the collar. Liquid cooling would solve most heat issues, and EK Water Blocks (EKWB) has you covered. The company's new lineup of liquid coolers look slick, and they even have RGB to boot. After the GeForce RTX 3080 launch, EK released the Quantum Vector RTX 3080/3090 D-RGB, which did not support Founders Edition cards. At the time, EK reported that “will get their own, separate, specifically designed... Read more...
NVIDIA's so-called "BFGPU," the GeForce RTX 3090 has been in short supply since its release last month. The audience for the world's fastest graphics card might be a little limited thanks to its $1,500 MSRP, but that hasn't stopped them from fetching far more than that on eBay. One element that was missing at launch was a large pool of cards from NVIDIA's manufacturing partners. However, thanks to a defective graphics card swap, one Redditor got their hands on a new model from MSI: The GeForce RTX 3090 SUPRIM X. According to the poster "Wet-Goat", they received the card as a swap for the card they'd intended to purchase, an ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 3090 that was defective. This card supposedly...

It does not appear as though Epic Games and Apple are close to kissing and making up, which means Fortnite remains a no-show in the App Store. However, that does not necessarily mean there is no way to play it on an iPhone or iPad device. Fortnite could be making a semi-triumphant return to iOS devices, and without Epic Games conceding its dispute with Apple. And NVIDIA would be the one to thank. Say what, now? NVIDIA does not have a dog in this fight, but it does have a cloud gaming service. I am of course talking about GeForce NOW. The streaming service has been expanding its catalog of games, and also extending its reach, having added support for Chrome OS devices (Chromebooks, mostly) this... Read more...
Will NVIDIA end up adding a GeForce RTX 3060 Ti to its Ampere series? We are unable to say for sure, but the leaks are starting to pile up. One of the more potentially telling indications that a GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is in the cards—and maybe very soon—is the fact that ASUS appears to have registered a whole bunch of models with the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC). The EEC website is one of the better places for leaks, at least as opposed to some random person posting to a random website, oftentimes with a blurry photo or screenshot (yeah, I'm a little jaded with that nonsense, can you tell?). As sometimes happens, unreleased parts get registered with the EEC, then are announced... Read more...
It appears that what we are witnessing here is the very first custom GeForce RTX 3060 Ti cards. In fact, these are actually the very first GeForce RTX 3060 Ti cards of any type that we've seen in the world, and they come to us from Gigabyte. The new cards were first spotted by @momomo_us, who is a notorious hardware leaker on Twitter, on the Saudi Arabian retail site Silicon Valley. So far, we know that Gigabyte will have at least two versions of the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti available: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Eagle RGB 8G Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Gaming OC Edition RGB 8G Both of these cards feature triple fans, and according to the product specs, 4864 CUDA cores along...
