It has been about a month since NVIDIA officially launched the GeForce RTX 2080 and flagship RTX 2080 Ti. Having thoroughly tested the cards, we know that the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti in particular is a powerhouse; if you want to see how it compares to other high-end graphics cards, you can check out our numbers right here. Today, however, we are going to dig in a little deeper and see how a pair of GeForce RTX 2080 Ti cards perform when linked together in SLI mode over the new second-gen NVLink connectors integrated into NVIDIA Turing cards... The Most Powerful GPUs Available Today -- Dual RTX... Read more...
NVIDIA is all about its GeForce RTX series with real-time ray tracing and DLSS support right now, but rumors of AMD getting ready to introduce a refreshed Polaris GPU may have prompted to the company to upgrade one of its Pascal parts. So far there has not been any official announcement or fanfare, but a visit to NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1060 product page shows that some models are now shipping with GDDR5X memory. For anyone keeping count, that now makes four different GeForce GTX 1060 models. They include a 3GB model that uses GDDR5 memory clocked at 8Gbps, the original GeForce GTX 1060 with 6GB of...

NVIDIA's "do everything" SHIELD TV is an incredibly potent media streamer + gaming platform, and it already features native support for the Google Assistant. However, the current implementation of voice control with the Google Assistant leaves a lot to be desired and is quite limited in its capabilities. NVIDIA is rectifying this issue with a new update that provides "deeper integration" with Google Home devices currently on your network. You can simply call out to your Google Home and tell it to specifically play a movie or a TV show on your SHIELD. For example, you can say "OK Google,... Read more...
The staggered roll-out of NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX series of graphics cards continues today with the release of the GeForce RTX 2070. NVIDIA and its partners are at the ready with a wide array of board designs at price points starting at $499. We’ve got a somewhat pricier, all-custom EVGA board on tap for you here that’s packing a dual-fan cooler, configurable RGB lighting, and interchangeable colored accents, the EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 XC. EVGA has a few RTX 2070 cards coming down the pipeline with various cooler configurations and clocks. The EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 XC is actually... Read more...
NVIDIA's hardware partners are starting to announce custom cooled versions of the company's GeForce RTX 2070, and soon enough websites will start posting performance reviews. In the meantime, we're left to speculate about performance based on the specs, and whatever leaks there might be. As it pertains to the latter, there is a leaked 3DMark benchmark run that suggests the GeForce RTX 2070 will be faster than the GeForce RTX 1080. For anyone who has not been following the GeForce RTX launch, NVIDIA announced three new cards built around its Turing GPU architecture: GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, GeForce... Read more...
The dust hasn't even had to time to settle on NVIDIA's desktop GeForce RTX series graphics cards, but as we're still exploring the full capabilities of these new parts, there is already chatter of mobile variants laying in the wings. It's not a matter of if, but when, and we could see mobile GeForce RTX GPUs unveiled within the next few months. Why does this matter if, for the most part, Pascal is still getting the job done? Better performance is welcome, even if it's not earth-shattering. More importantly, however, porting the GeForce RTX family over to mobile opens the door to real-time ray tracing... Read more...
Volvo is a name that is synonymous with safety, and the company is taking another step towards making its vehicles even safer by slowly wresting control away from human drivers. Volvo announced this morning that it will be adopting NVIDIA's DRIVE AGX Xavier platform for its future self-driving vehicles. DRIVE AGX Xavier features a single Xavier SoC, which is rated at 30 trillion operations per second (TOPs), while consuming just 30 watts of power. Xavier is an octa-core design that also incorporates a Volta-based GPU with 512 CUDA cores. NVIDIA has also fitted Xavier with a video... Read more...
If the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti are too rich for your blood, the company's "entry-level" GeForce RTX 2070 will launch later this month. Priced from $499 for third-party cards, the GeForce RTX 2070 could find a home in many gaming rigs. Enter the MSI GeForce RTX 2070 Gaming X, which has a dual fan cooling solution, rather than the triple fan cooling solution some RTX 2070 cards utilize (a la the ASUS ROG Strix RTX 2070). The MSI GeForce RTX 2070 Gaming X is a dual-slot video card, which might make this appealing to gamers who need a decent video card that can fit into a... Read more...
Last month, NVIDIA officially launched its next-generation gaming graphics cards with the release of the GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. To coincide with the launch, NVIDIA made available GeForce Game Ready WHQL-certified 411.63 drivers which brought official support for the cards' RTX real-time ray-tracing. Today, NVIDIA is further advancing its GeForce Game Ready drivers with the release of 416.16 WHQL drivers for the new Windows 10 October 2018 Update. This brings the first public release of DirectX Ray Tracing (DXR), which is Microsoft's API for ray-tracing. As NVIDIA notes,... Read more...
In this latest episode of HotHardware’s Two And Half Geeks, Marco, Chris and Dave chat about custom GeForce RTX 2080 cards from ASUS and others, HP’s brand-new sleek and leather-clad Spectre Folio 2-in-1 laptop, the bodacious, camera-strapped LG V40 ThinQ, Origin’s EVO15-S 15-inch thin and light gaming laptop with NVIDIA Max-Q, Microsoft's latest Surface devices and more...

Although NVIDIA just launched the Turing-based GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti last week, its board partners were at the ready with a wide array of custom offerings right out of the gate. We were lucky enough to show you a couple of custom cards from MSI and EVGA in our initial launch coverage, and today we’ve got a brand new combatant to evaluate from ASUS, namely the GeForce RTX 2080 ROG STRIX Gaming OC Edition. As we’ve come to expect from ASUS, the GeForce RTX 2080 ROG STRIX Gaming OC Edition is about as extreme as an air-cooled GPU can get. Of course the card is factory overclocked,... Read more...
NVIDIA's Max-Q technology has only been on the market for about a year, but in that time quite few OEMs have jumped on the bandwagon. And for good reason. Max-Q is, or wants to be, the answer to a problem that has plagued mobile gamers since the first gaming laptop was birthed, spanked, and shipped off into the real world. We are, of course, talking about size. Bigger is not always better, especially in the mobile computing market. Most gaming laptops are bulky, heavy, and short on battery life. With Max-Q, NVIDIA is looking to change this by focusing on what they call the sweet spot when it comes... Read more...
NVIDIA has made it official. The least powerful version of its new GeForce RTX Series of gaming cards will launch on October 17th. The company made the announcement today via Twitter, and the GeForce RTX 2070 Turing-based graphics cards will have a starting price of $499 for third-party cards. If you want an NVIDIA-branded Founders Edition card, you'll have to fork over $599. However, if the GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti represent an accurate readout of pricing, it may be quite some time before we see custom GeForce RTX 2070 cards approach that $499 street price. Custom GeForce RTX 2070... Read more...
ASUS has rolled out some new video cards that are aiming directly at the wallets of gamers everywhere. The new cards include the ROG Strix, Dual, and Turbo GeForce RTX 2070 graphics cards, all of which use GDDR6 memory and include Virtual Link tech that lets gamers using a VR headset connect with one cable. The ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2070 uses three wing-blade fans that have hubs 9% smaller than normal fans along for larger fan blades. That means the fans can move more air than similarly sized fans to keep the card cool. The fans also have an IP5X certification for dust resistance, and the... Read more...
