It appears at least some of EVGA's newly minted GeForce RTX 2060 KO and GeForce RTX 2060 KO Ultra graphics cards are shipping with Turing-based TU104-150 dies, rather than the TU106 dies that other GeForce RTX 2060 cards have used up to this point. It's not clear if this is specific to EVGA, though. In case you missed it, EVGA launched its GeForce RTX 2060 KO models two weeks ago. The cards preceded an official price drop to the regular (read: non-Super) GeForce RTX 2060 family, as NVIDIA has since lowered the cost on its Founders Edition model to $299 on its website. Most custom models on the market are still selling for $330 and up, though we expect that will change in the coming weeks. Why... Read more...
Back in November, we heard rumblings that NVIDIA was looking to give its GeForce RTX/GTX Mobile lineup a "Super" refresh; just as it had previously done with its desktop counterparts. Things have been quiet on that front until now, as we're seeing the first additional evidence confirming the existence of the GeForce RTX 2080 Super with Max-Q Design. Confirmation of this news comes by way of TUM_APISAK, which unearthed a Geekbench entry for the mobile GeForce RTX 2080. In this particular instance, the GPU is paired up with an Intel Core i9-10980HK processor (Comet Lake-H), which indicates that is likely a desktop replacement gaming laptop. Intel announced its Comet Lake-H processors at CES... Read more...
NVIDIA has already unleashed a "SUPER" refresh of its GeForce Turing family of desktop graphics processors across RTX and GTX product ranges. However, according to a new leak, NVIDIA is looking to extend the SUPER loving to its mobility GPUs in the opening months of 2020. AMD announced its Navi-based Radeon RX 5500M GPUs for notebooks back in early October, and it's expected that there will be RX 5700M and RX 5300M offerings flanking it. To counter the threat from AMD, NVIDIA's SUPER refresh on the mobility side is expected to keep it in the driver's seat with respect to performance. Inside information on this new GPU lineup comes from NotebookCheck, which indicates that there... Read more...
NVIDIA is flexing its muscle once again when it comes to artificial intelligence (AI) inference workloads, and this time around, the company is claiming benchmark supremacy in MLPerf Inference 0.5. AI performance is becoming increasingly more important for usage scenarios like image recognition, voice recognition and autonomous vehicles (among other fields). To that end, NVIDIA says that the one-two punch of its Turing-based AI accelerators and the Xavier SoC allowed it to take top honors in all five of MLPerf's inference benchmarks. For its Turing offerings (with a focus on data centers), the Turing GPUs were able to top the charts in both server and offline scenarios on a "performance per processor"... Read more...
NVIDIA is expanding its GeForce GTX family of graphics cards today, with a pair of new Turing-based GPUs. As their branding suggests, the new GeForce GTX 1660 Super and GeForce GTX 1650 Super sit above their “non-Super” branded counterparts in NVIDIA’s line-up, but a notch below GeForce GTX Ti variants. It is only the GeForce GTX 1660 Super that is arriving on store shelves today, however. The GeForce GTX 1650 Super will be arriving at little later in November. NVIDIA is introducing some new driver and GeForce Experience-related features today too, which we will cover in a just bit. We’ve got a couple of GeForce GTX 1660 Super cards on hand, one from Gigabyte and the other... Read more...
A few months ago, NVIDIA dropped a bombshell on us with the revelation that it's working with Microsoft on a real-time ray traced version of the widely popular game Minecraft. Leveraging the dedicated hardware included on Turing-based graphics cards like the GeForce RTX series, NVIDIA is promising some rather dramatic visual upgrades to the notoriously "basic" game with realistic shadows, reflections, and lighting effects. NVIDIA is now giving us performance targets for this upgraded version of Minecraft, which by itself isn't exactly a very demanding game. However, with a handful of ray tracing effects enabled, NVIDIA says that it is targeting performance of 60fps at 1080p with the... Read more...
We've been hearing quite a bit about NVIDIA's upcoming "Super" refresh of its GeForce GTX Turing family of graphics cards. Over the past few weeks, we seen leaks concerning Zotac's upcoming GeForce GTX 1660 Super-based gaming card, and ASUS is already reportedly ready to unleash a number of new SKUs based on the GPU. Today, we're getting some clarification on the final specs for the GeForce GTX 1660 Super thanks to well-connected hardware sleuth momomo_us. momomo_us stumbled across a product listing on a Chinese-based e-commerce site that lists a Maxsun GeForce GTX 1660 Super graphics card. Judging by the images, this is a custom design complete with that looks like a relatively beefy heatsink... Read more...
What is fast becoming the worst kept secret in tech is the pending launch of a GeForce GTX 1660 Super model. NVIDIA has not yet officially announced any such product, but the leaks keep coming. The latest one is a series of what look to be official press renders of a couple Zotac brand SKUs. We will get to those in a moment, but first let's discuss the Super brand. NVIDIA refreshed its higher end Turing cards with Super models shortly before AMD launched its Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon RX 5700 cards. So far there are three Super SKUs. They include... GeForce RTX 2080 Super GeForce RTX 2070 Super GeForce RTX 2060 Super There has been plenty of chatter pointing to NVIDIA refreshing other Turing... Read more...
It appears that we haven't heard the last of NVIDIA's "Super" refreshes for its Turing-based GeForce graphics cards. Earlier this summer, we witnessed the launch of the GeForce RTX 2060 Super, GeForce RTX 2070 Super and the GeForce RTX 2080 Super. Now there's a rumor making the rounds that NVIDIA is looking to spread some Super lovin' to its Turing GeForce GTX cards. This latest rumor comes from MyDrivers, which suggests that NVIDIA is working to deliver a GeForce GTX 1660 Super, which would slot in between the existing GeForce GTX 1660 (TU116-300) and GeForce 1660 Ti (TU116-400). It's reported that the GeForce GTX 1660 Super will use a vision of the TU116-300 die, with the... Read more...
Razer's Blade Stealth 13 is getting a big upgrade this week with respect to its graphics subsystem. Razer is labeling the new Blade Stealth 13 as the world first's gaming ultrabook, which now features a GeForce GTX 1650 discrete GPU with NVIDIA Optimus technology. The previous version of the notebook was available with a relatively puny GeForce MX150 GPU, but the inclusion of the Turing-based GeForce GTX 1650 gives it some much needed graphics muscle. In addition to the graphics upgrade, the Razer Blade Stealth 13 is also rocking Intel's latest 10th generation "Ice Lake" Core processors. In this case, you'll find the quad-core 10nm Core i7-1065G7 processor (25W) with a base... Read more...
The final member of NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX Super-series officially arrives today, the GeForce RTX 2080 Super. In case you missed it, a couple of weeks back, NVIDIA launched the GeForce RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super, to preemptively zing AMD in the lead-up to the Radeon RX 5700 series launch. The GeForce RTX Super-series will supplant and eventually replace their original, “non-Super” counterparts once availability dries up. At the top and bottom of the stack, however, the GeForce RTX 2060 and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti will remain. It is in the meat of the 20-series where the Supers reside, with the new GeForce RTX 2080 Super we’ll be showing you here today leading the charge,... Read more...
Yesterday, we brought you news of a number of third-party GeForce RTX Super cards from EVGA, MSI and Zotac. Today, we've got another round of cards from ASUS and Gigabyte.  ASUS always goes completely overboard with its product releases, and its GeForce RTX Super lineup is no exception. In fact, the company is releasing a total 19 graphics cards based on the new GPUs. For those looking for a GeForce RTX 2060 Super solution, there are seven cards available: ROG STRIX RTX2060S-08G GAMING (OC) ROG STRIX RTX2060S-A8G GAMING (Advanced) ROG STRIX RTX2060S-8G GAMING (Standard) DUAL RTX2060S-08G EVO DUAL RTX2060S-A8G EVO DUAL RTX2060S-8G EVO TURBO RTX2060S-8G EVO If you are of the GeForce...

NVIDIA dropped a hint that something “Super” was coming just prior to Computex and since then a handful of leaks have let the cat mostly out of the bag. Today, however, we can dispel the rumors, officially reveal what NVIDIA’s got coming down the pipeline, and show you exactly what NVIDIA’s Super branding is all about. NVIDIA is overhauling its Turing-based GeForce RTX line-up with an array of “Super” GPUs, specifically the GeForce RTX 2060 Super, RTX 2070 Super, and RTX 2080 Super. In the short term, like two days from now, the GeForce RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super will hit store shelves. The GeForce RTX 2080 Super is coming in a few weeks though, and... Read more...
There have been a lot of SUPER rumors making the rounds over the past month, with the most recent one indicating that the cards would be announced this week. Now a new rumor claims to have pricing details for the entire lineup of NVIDIA GeForce RTX SUPER graphics cards. At the top of the GPU heap is the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER, which is expected to have an MSRP of $799. This is the exact same price as the current GeForce RTX 2080, but the SUPER variant will have more CUDA cores and higher clocks which would make it an even better value. Next up is the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER, which will reportedly debut at $599. Again, this is the same launch price as the GeForce RTX 2070, with performance... Read more...
