AMD's next-generation Ryzen processors, intended to launch later this year, will include a basic graphics processor so you don't have to add a discrete GPU. That doesn't help anyone building Ryzen right now, though. If you want Ryzen, you need to either buy one of the models that includes a GPU—limiting your maximum... Read more...
NVIDIA's GeForce NOW cloud streaming service added Fortnite today to its already large library of games it supports. The full launch removes the waitlist that existed prior to today, and enables all current and new members with the opportunity to stream the extremely popular battle-royale game on both iOS and Android...

One of the greatest benefits of being a PC gamer is the unfettered backward compatibility. You can load up PC games from the 1980s and 1990s right now on the same machine you use to play Cyberpunk 2077, and they'll run just fine. Moreover, they'll use a lot less power because they don't need to fire up your... Read more...
When NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3080 Ti mobile GPU and Intel’s beefy 12th Gen Core H-Series processors first hit the scene, they tore through the lab here guns a-blazin’. We had the chance to take a look at a couple of killer systems from MSI and Alienware at the time, which maxed-out the platform with... Read more...
There are a great many factors that enthusiast gamers consider when selecting a graphics card for a gaming PC. Despite that, speaking from experience helping others with builds for decades, things like feature support, power efficiency, and acoustics often go by the wayside when there's a significant advantage in...

Every so option, a leak or rumor pops up claiming NVIDIA's next flagship graphics is going to be an absolute beast. Given what we know about the current generation flagships, the GeForce RTX 3090 and GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, that's like saying water is wet and fire is hot. It's the more specific claims that can be...

Nintendo sells consoles based on the strength of its game experiences rather than the power of their processors, but technology marches on regardless, and the venerable NVIDIA Tegra X1 is getting pretty long in the tooth. While its ARM Cortex-A57 CPUs are roughly comparable to the old AMD Jaguar CPUs in the... Read more...
NVIDIA's relationship with the open-source community has historically been a tale of intense on-again-off-again interactions. In recent years, the company has embraced open source more closely as of late, but its past refusal to open-source its graphics drivers, citing trade secrets and proprietary technology, has...

At GTC in March, NVIDIA announced its baddest GPU to date: Hopper H100. Named after US Navy Rear Admiral Grace Hopper, it was announced alongside an upcoming CPU product called Grace. Hopper isn't quite the biggest GPU NVIDIA has ever created—by a scant few square millimeters—but it's certainly the fastest. Until... Read more...
If you're not an overclocker, you may not be aware that graphics cards these days use multiple separate methods to monitor and limit their own performance. It's a constant dance between the boost algorithm perpetually pushing performance to higher levels and the various limiters putting the kibosh on its plans. The... Read more...
The United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has accepted a $5.5 million settlement offer from NVIDIA over findings that it "failed to disclose" in its filings that "cryptomining was a significant factor in year-over-year growth" from its GPU sales. Though NVIDIA submitted the offer, which the SEC... Read more...
The top selling graphics card on Amazon is Gigabyte's GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Gaming OC with a factory overclock and custom 3X Windforce cooling solution. After that, MSI's GeForce RTX 3080 (LHR) is the next best-selling GPU, followed by Zotac's GeForce RTX 3060 Twin Edge OC. And so it goes for the top 10 best sellers—all... Read more...
Artificial intelligence and robotics go together like peanut butter and chocolate. To be truly useful, a service robot needs to be smart enough to perform its assigned tasks, stay out of danger, and not run over its human coworkers in the process. Nearly a decade ago, NVIDIA recognized that the hugely parallel... Read more...
For the first time in a very long time, you can snag a custom GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card at the launch price NVIDIA set for its Founders Edition model when it debuted in September 2020. That's actually a deal, both in this landscape and considering that this is a factory overclocked model with a custom cooling... Read more...
The proliferation of cloud-based game streaming options has helped expand the reach of quality gaming experiences to more devices than ever before. One of those is NVIDIA's GeForce NOW service, and to our point, the latest update (version 2.0.40) adds native support for MacBook, iMac, and Mac mini devices powered by... Read more...
This is a story we've all heard several times by now: next-generation GPUs are going to be even bigger, hotter, and more power-thirsty than the beastly boards of today. It seems like that may be true of some more than others, though. We heard back in the middle of March that NVIDIA could be preparing a top-end Ada... Read more...
NVIDIA has shown it has no intention of relinquishing the GPU performance crown, and we need only look at the recent addition of the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti to be reminded of this (although there could be an ulterior motive there). We'll see how things shake out when NVIDIA and AMD get around to launching their next-gen... Read more...
When a video game loads and runs smoothly without any glitches or weird anomalies, we tend not to think about all the work that went into making such an experience possible. But should a game skip frames and stutter even though it shouldn't on the hardware we're running, or worse yet, crash to the desktop, the range... Read more...
The GPU nightmare might not be over just yet, but every month we get a little bit closer to waking up to a stabilized market. Whether we get all the way there before AMD and NVIDIA begin shipping out next-gen graphics cards remains to be seen, and that presents gamers with any interesting quandary—does it make sens to...

Tell your mother, tell your father, tell your friends and everyone you know, the the Great Graphics Card Shortage of 2020-2022 is finally over! Okay, that's being a tad dramatic, and not wholly accurate. However, the situation is definitely improving, to the point where NVIDIA and its hardware partners have kicked off... Read more...
Over at Igor's Lab, site founder Igor Wallossek has been doing some rather curious investigative testing on the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. By limiting the card's power budget to just 300 watts, Igor has discovered that the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is actually the most efficient Ampere GPU at that power level, and by a... Read more...
AOC has created a new Agon Pro gaming monitor tier among its growing display lineup and its first model, the Agon Pro AG254FG, comes flying out of the gate with a breakneck 360Hz refresh rate for fast-action gameplay. In doing so, the AG254FG earns the distinction of the fastest gaming monitor AOC has released to... Read more...
