The effect that cryptocurrency mining has had on the graphics card market has been so extreme, very few people could have predicted it. GPUs that were as easy to purchase as a gallon of milk became as hard to find as the hottest deal at Best Buy on Black Friday. In addition to the rarity, inflated pricing has been a real issue as well, with many GPUs costing twice as much (or more) than their intended MSRP. A $649 GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, for example, can currently be had as "cheap" as $900, and that's a relative bargain compared to some of the other pricing we've seen. It's not hard to find the same...

Recently discovered vulnerabilities present in practically every processor manufactured in the past two decades have caused quite the headache, for both companies like Intel and AMD, and end users who have to balance software patches with performance penalties. Just when we thought we could exhale (even if just a little bit), security researchers from Princeton University and NVIDIA have found new ways of exploiting Meltdown and Spectre, and upcoming hardware changes might prove futile to these new methods. The researchers outlined their findings in a paper (PDF) titled "MeldownPrime and SpectrePrime:... Read more...
NVIDIA's Pascal architecture has been underpinning its GeForce series of gaming GPUs for nearly the past two years – it’s high time for an upgrade. We've heard rumors of a GA104 GPU called Ampere that is supposed to underpin a new GeForce GTX 2000 series of graphics cards. But there's another wrinkle in speculation of NVIDIA's next-generation GPU equation that was recently invoked by Reuters. The publication says that NVIDIA has another new GPU incoming codenamed "Turing," and makes just a passing reference to the GPU, noting, "The new GPU gaming chip, code named Turing, is expected...

When AMD announced its earnings last week, the company made it a point to indicate that it would boost capacity in order to address the GPU supply strain caused by booming cryptocurrency mining demand. Yesterday, it was NVIDIA's turn to release earnings -- which it knocked out of the park, by the way -- and it too is looking to address GPU supply problems. NVIDIA CEO and founder Jen-Hsun Huang during his company's earnings call brought attention to the woes gamers (and cryptocurrency miners) are facing when attempting to purchase a Pascal-based graphics cards these days. "We're working really hard... Read more...
We are at the tail end of the work week, so let's cap things off with a juicy rumor, shall we? Or maybe it better to refer to this as wild speculation. Whatever you want to call it, chatter on the web suggests that NVIDIA is preparing a next generation GPU called "Ampere," and that NVIDIA will officially introduce new graphics cards based around Ampere in or around April. Wouldn't that be something? This feels more like a shot in the dark to us. It certainly is not leaked information. The rumor traces back to a German-language website, 3DCenter, which posted an article with information plucked... Read more...
GPU juggernaut NVIDIA is flying high after announcing blowout financial results for the previous quarter, and so are shares of NVDA in after hours trading as a result. Hot on the heels of reporting a record $2.91 billion in revenue during the fourth quarter, investors responded by sending shares of company up more than 12 percent, offsetting the 5 percent drop in share price for the day before the closing bell today, in what was otherwise another bloodbath on Wall Street. "We achieved another record quarter, capping an excellent year," said Jensen Huang, founder and chief executive officer... Read more...

The side effects of the recent price gouging on GPUs from AMD and NVIDIA is now filtering down to sites that use affiliate links to generate additional revenue. One retailer in particular, Newegg, is cutting off the Video Card category for affiliate linking. Newegg attributes this change in policy to the fact that "Bitcoin has gone mainstream." "The limited nature of these cards have caused a shortage in which supply can never meet demand and thus many users are actively buying these cards as soon as they go in stock," writes Newegg. "So, this means effective in 7 days from now all VGA cards will... Read more...

CES 2018 has come to a close, and so begins the arduous wait, for some of the exciting devices we saw, to come to market. The Consumer Electronic Show held in Las Vegas, Nevada is where companies come to tout new wares and announce upcoming products and technologies. While some of the cool tech that was shown leaves us with that "shut-up and take my money" feeling, it’s often not retail-ready, with months of lead-time separating consumers from getting their hands on the geek goodness we spied last week. For those who couldn’t attend the show, it can be difficult navigating the CES myriad... Read more...
NVIDIA appears to be gearing up to deliver some new GPU flavor to the mobile gaming market. The only thing we know about this new graphics engine right now comes from a Linux driver changelog that calls out added support for a "GeForce GTX1050 Ti with Max-Q Design." There are no tidbits about clock speeds or other performance details noted in the changelog. The deal with Max-Q Design GPU in laptops is that they are essentially desktop-equivalent configurations but designed to be more power efficient and with better cooling design that allow longer sustained performance over time with quieter...
