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...
NVIDIA has something "SUPER" in store for gaming enthusiasts. The company first teased SUPER in the days leading up to Computex 2019, but made no announcements pertaining to this new branding. Over the past few weeks, reports have zeroed in on SUPER referring to a refresh of the GeForce RTX family that was first introduced last fall. A new report is now shedding light on when we might actually see these new GPUs. According to VideoCardz and WCCFTech, NVIDIA is set to announce the new SUPER family as early as next week. However, the report indicates that cards wouldn't actually be available for sale until mid-July. As for pricing, it's expected that the new SUPER... Read more...
We've been hearing quite a bit about NVIDIA's Quake II RTX remake over the past few months, and now it's finally available for download. As its name implies, Quake II RTX is meant to showcase the hardware capabilities of NVIDIA's current generation GeForce RTX Turing family of gaming graphics cards. The GeForce RTX cards are able to tackle real-time ray tracing thanks to their dedicated hardware RT and Tensor cores, and also support Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS). All of that processing power is put to good use in Quake II RTX, which NVIDIA says is the world's first game that is fully path-traced, which means that lighting effects like shadows, reflections, and refractions...

NVIDIA appears to have something waiting in the wings to take on a looming Navi threat from AMD. The company has posted a teaser video for an upcoming product that could be unveiled next week at Computex 2019.  NVIDIA isn't really giving us much to go on with the teaser, but the video is entitled "Something super is coming..." and the word "SUPER" is lit up at the end. So, what exactly does NVIDIA have lined up for gamers with this release? We heard rumors last week that NVIDIA would be releasing a refresh of its Turing-based GeForce RTX and GTX graphics cards. Reports indicated that we'd see boosted GPU clock and GDDR6 memory speeds to further increase performance. NVIDIA’s Turing... Read more...
We could be in for a delightfully wild ride in graphics once Computex and E3 roll around, or perhaps shortly thereafter. AMD will kick things off with a new round of graphics cards based on its Navi GPU architecture, and those could be interesting in and of themselves. Where things could truly heat up, however, is with how NVIDIA responds, and rumor has it the GPU maker is prepping a refresh of its high-end Turing parts. To this point, NVIDIA has focused on bringing Turing to the masses by following up the launch of pricey (and full featured) RTX parts with less expensive GTX models, including the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and GeForce GTX 1660, and more recently the GeForce GTX 1650. All of those cards... Read more...
AMD has already confirmed that the first 7nm Navi-based GPUs will begin shipping in the coming months, which has many gamers excited. "We are well-positioned to grow GPU revenue in the second quarter and through the second half of the year as we expect to introduce our first 7-nanometer Navi gaming GPUs in the third quarter," said AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su during last week's earnings call. Now we're beginning to hear some additional [alleged] leaked details about one of the first members of the incoming Navi family. The rumored Radeon RX 3080 XT will be based on Navi 10 and will reportedly come equipped with 8GB of GDDR6 memory. Other reported specs include a total of 56 compute units and a TDP... Read more...
You may not realize it, but not all GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2070 graphics cards are created equal. We are not just talking about the custom cooling solutions and PCBs (printed circuit boards), but the actual GPUs inside for each model—NVIDIA separates its Turing GPU dies for those models into two categories, or at least that is how things used to be done. Not anymore, apparently. We reported on this separation of GPUs last November. Otherwise known as "binning," NVIDIA up to this point has offered its hardware partners a lower end (and presumably cheaper) variant of a GPU for non-overclocked cards, and a higher-end GPU for models that will be factory overclocked. Here's how things... Read more...
A couple of weeks back, NVIDIA launched the latest edition to its Turing-based GPU line-up, the GeForce GTX 1650. As its name suggests, the GeForce GTX 1650 is similar to the recently-released GeForce GTX 1660 and 1660 Ti, but it is powered by a different GPU with somewhat tamer specifications, which results in a lower price point as well. We’ll dig into the specifics in just a moment. As was the case with the GeForce GTX 1660 and 1660 Ti, there will be no Founder’s Edition version of the GeForce GTX 1650 arriving on store shelves. Instead, NVIDIA is relying on their add-in board partners to seed the market this time around. The card we’ll be looking at today is one the higher-end... Read more...
Intel today launched new 9th generation Core mobile processors, while NVIDIA unboxed brand new GeForce GTX 16 Series Turing GPUs for laptops. As you might expect, OEMs are refreshing their lineups around these new chips, and we got the chance to get some hands-on time with new hardware from ASUS. ASUS ROG Mothership At the top of the lineup is the ROG Mothership, which we first saw in January at CES 2019 with a factory overclocked Intel Core i9-8950HK processor running the show. However, this time around ASUS has upped the stakes with an available 9th generation Intel Core i9-9980HK. This 8-core/16-thread processor has a base clock of 2.4GHz, but can turbo boost...
