It now looks certain that NVIDIA partners will simply be rebadging and reboxing any GeForce RTX 4080 12GB graphics cards stock as RTX 4070 Ti SKUs. These cards would have been manufactured and prepared prior to NVIDIA's unprecedented unlaunching of the product in response to consumer complaints. NVIDIA partner... Read more...
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) is ramping up its efforts to increase chip production on US soil, and it has plenty of support from both the White House and major wafer customers, including AMD, Apple, and NVIDIA. As part of those efforts, TSMC is more than tripling its initial investment of $12... Read more...
If you weren't a PC gamer when the original Portal released in October of 2007, you probably don't realize the immense impact that the game had. Debuting as part of The Orange Box package, along with the complete version of Half-Life 2 as well as Team Fortress 2, it was arguably the dark horse of the set. Striking... Read more...
NVIDIA finds itself as the sole player in the next-gen GPU market with its GeForce RTX 4090 and GeForce RTX 4080 graphics card, and that will continue to be the case until AMD releases its Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon RX 7900 XT to retail next week. Interestingly, and maybe not coincidentally, NVIDIA just lowered the... Read more...
Did you think "ConnectorGate" was done? Think again, readers. Sure, Gamers Nexus went above and beyond the call of duty testing NVIDIA's 12VHPWR connector adapters for the GeForce RTX 4090 and determined the most likely causes of the failures, and sure, NVIDIA corroborated their findings with its own data. There's... Read more...
You may recall that we reported back in October on an official revision of the GeForce RTX 3060. Far from a rumor, NVIDIA's website was quietly updated to list an 8GB model of the lower-mid-range GPU. Well, Australian tech-tubers Hardware Unboxed (HWUB) managed to snag one of the 8GB RTX 3060 cards and put it through... Read more...
Update: EA has updated its guidance on how to resolve flashing and blinking display issues in Need for Speed Unbound, saying affected users should update their motherboard BIOS, not their GPU BIOS. "We've seen reports of flashing/blinking display issues with folks on high-end PCs (NVIDIA RTX 40-series). After... Read more...
"But Zak," you cry, "there is no GeForce RTX 4070 Ti!" Not yet, there's not, but all information indicates that that's the name NVIDIA will use when it re-launches the un-launched GeForce RTX 4080 12GB. We've seen both rumors and leaks under that name, but what we hadn't seen until now was the GPU that goes on those... Read more...
It's a bit of an open secret, but in case you're not aware, most processors these days are pushed far beyond the "sweet spot" in their voltage-to-frequency curve. That means that you can trim the voltage and reduce power consumption considerably while only dropping a bit of performance. On the already-efficient... Read more...
In an unprecedented move, NVIDIA "unlaunched" the "GeForce RTX 4080 12GB," leaving the extant GeForce RTX 4080—based on GA103, with 16GB of memory—as the singular GeForce RTX 4080 model. This was done pretty late, though, and those chips and even cards were already manufactured. It's a given that NVIDIA will re-launch... Read more...

When AMD revealed its Radeon RX 7900 series GPUs early this month, its presentation focused on comparing against its own previous-generation parts. There were some comparisons to the GeForce RTX 4080 in the press materials, but nothing comparing their parts to the GeForce RTX 4090. That may change may have been made... Read more...
Publicity is a hell of a thing. By all the data we have, incidents of melting 12VHPWR connectors on GeForce RTX 4090s are vanishingly rare. Despite that, everyone knows exactly what Sasa Marinkovic (AMD's Senior Director of Gaming Marketing) is implying with his tweet, which we'll reproduce below. In case you're... Read more...

One of the noteworthy takeaways from AMD's announcement of the Navi 31-based Radeon RX 7900 XTX was its lower power spec (355W) relative to NVIDIA's power-thirsty GeForce RTX 4090. Of course, it's not expected to be as fast as NVIDIA's card either, and in any case, we didn't see the RTX 4090 hit its rated power under... Read more...
Much has been written already, both here and elsewhere, about the issue of melting 12VHPWR connectors on GeForce RTX 4090 cards. If you're new to this topic, the shortest summary is that recent GeForce cards use a new type of auxiliary power connector, and those connectors have been smoking and melting for a few...
