When NVIDIA launched its first trio of Turing GPUs – the GeForce RTX 2070, RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti – the headlining feature of the cards was their support for hardware-based real-time ray tracing. We’ve seen titles like Battlefield V and Metro Exodus make full use of real-time ray tracing to deliver ultra-realistic reflections, water effects, and shadows (among other visual effects) to enhance the gaming experience.  The effects look amazing, but they require beefy hardware to extract acceptable performance. But given that ray tracing technology has been commoditized within DirectX 12 as DirectX Raytracing (DXR), it will soon possible for... Read more...
NVIDIA is looking to expand its presence in the high-performance workstation market with new systems that are specifically geared towards data scientists. More specifically, the machines are designed to accelerate data analytics, machine learning, and deep learning tasks that are becoming increasingly more important to a number of sectors including the finance, retail, and insurance fields. The new GPU-Accelerated Data Science Workstation reference platform makes use of dual Turing-based Quadro RTX 6000 or RTX 8000 GPUs delivering as much as 96GB of memory and up to 260 teraflops of peak compute performance (thanks to the high-speed NVLink interconnect). Backing that immense amount... Read more...
NVIDIA is attempting to push the industry forward (and simultaneously make a profit, of course) by implementing dedicated ray tracing hardware into its latest generation Turing GPU, a feature that is a staple of its GeForce RTX series. Since launching its RTX lineup, however, NVIDIA has also made available a cheaper version of Turing that lacks real-time ray tracing and DLSS hardware, and it appears yet another model is about to enter the fray. After having recently launched the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and GeForce GTX 1660 (in that order), there are rumors of a GeForce GTX 1650 to follow. It seems like a foregone conclusion at this point. Lest there be any doubt, though, an entry for an MSI GeForce... Read more...
As it pertains to graphics cards, quite a bit has changed over the past year or so. Had you been in the market for a GPU around this time last year, you would have been staring at inflated price tags for practically every mid-range and high-end option on the market. Fast forward to today and things are looking much better, thanks to the cryptocurrency market sinking like the Titanic, and new GPU launches. NVIDIA's newest generation Turing GPU architecture has been especially helpful in spurring better prices, at least in certain segments. Sure, the initial GeForce RTX series launch hit gamers with sticker shock, but then came the GeForce RTX 2060, which is still the least expensive RTX model... Read more...
We are only a couple of weeks removed from the launch of the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and NVIDIA is already at it again. This time around, we have yet another affordably-priced, Turing-based GPU to show you all, the GeForce GTX 1660 – sans Ti. As its naming suggest, the new GeForce GTX 1660 is very similar to its more-powerful counterpart; they’re both based on the same GPU, but a few cores and other components have been disabled in the GTX 1660. A handful of other changes have been made with the GeForce GTX 1660 as well, which push the card down a rung in terms of performance, but also bring down the price. We have a couple of GeForce GTX 1660 cards on tap for you here, one from EVGA... Read more...
The NVIDIA Titan RTX is a GPU with somewhat of an identity crisis. The card is based on a fully-enabled Turing TU102 GPU, and is technically the most powerful graphics card in NVIDIA’s current line-up for gaming. If you hit NVIDIA’s site and check out the Titan RTX’s landing page, however, it isn’t being targeted at gamers. NVIDIA’s site makes statements like, “TITAN RTX frees you to work at the full speed of your creativity” and “[TITAN RTX] provides a fast and simple start to exploring GPU-accelerated data science workflows on your PC.” The words “game” or "gaming" do not even appear on the Titan RTX page. Although some folks... Read more...
It is very likely that NVIDIA has more Turing-based GeForce GTX graphics cards up its sleeve, and rumor has it that two of the upcoming models include the GeForce GTX 1660 (non-Ti) and GeForce GTX 1650. As it pertains to the latter, a new listing in the 3DMark benchmark database may have revealed some key specs. Frequent leaker and Twitter user @TUM_APISAK posted a screenshot of the entry, which shows the GeForce GTX 1650 paired with an Intel Core i7-9750H processor. Of bigger interest than the testbed, though, are the clockspeeds and RAM—the listing indicates the GeForce GTX 1650 wields 4GB of presumed GDDR5 memory. Past leaks peg the memory bus at 128-bit, and with a 2,000MHz effective... Read more...
Although the Turing-based GeForce RTX 2000 series hit store shelves first, it was about a week before their initial unveiling that NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang took to the stage and announced the Quadro RTX family of workstation-class GPUs, targeting professional graphics applications. As of today, Quadro RTX series consists of four graphics cards, ranging from the monstrous Quadro RTX 8000 with its 48GB of GDDR6 to the Quadro RTX 4000, which targets more mainstream content creation professionals. It’s the later that we’ll be showing you here today. Looking at the Quadro RTX 4000 in light of some of NVIDIA’s other pro-graphics cards, it would appear to be a rather tame solutions....

The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti was one of the worst kept secrets in the tech industry, as specs and retail card leaks kept leaking on a continual basis. Last week, we were finally able to get a true glimpse of what this "budget" card can do and it dominates the Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1060 while offering comparable performance to the GeForce GTX 1070. However, the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti isn't the only cut-down Turing-based card coming from NVIDIA. Word on the street is that it will be joined by the lower-spec’d GeForce GTX 1660 and GeForce GTX 1650. A new report from DigiTimes claims that is has confirmed not only the pricing of the news new gaming cards, but also their launch... Read more...
In case you missed it, NVIDIA launched its [widely leaked] GeForce GTX 1660 Ti this morning, and we've got a full review which you can check out right here. As most are well aware of at this point, the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is based on NVIDIA's Turing GPU architecture, albeit without Tensor or RT cores, meaning that you don't have dedicated hardware for real-time ray tracing. With that being said, the GeForce RTX 1660 Ti is being positioned as a replacement for the GeForce GTX 1060, but as our benchmarks bore out, it is actually more comparable to the GeForce GTX 1070. And with a price of less than $300, the card represents a pretty compelling bargain for those that game at 1440p and below.... Read more...
NVIDIA is expanding its Turing-based GPU lineup today and pushing its latest graphics architecture down into a more affordable price point. Although it does share some similarities with its predecessors, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti we will be showing you here is unlike all of the other Turing-based GPUs that have launched to date in a few meaningful ways. The fact that the card is branded a GeForce GTX, rather than a GeForce RTX, hints at the biggest difference – the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti doesn’t support NVIDIA’s RTX real-time ray tracing technology. What the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti does do, however, is incorporate all of the architectural efficiencies of Turing into an affordable... Read more...
In an effort to sell more GPUs, it is widely believed that NVIDIA is getting ready to launch new Turing cards that lack RT and Tensor cores, recycling its previous generation "GTX" designation in the process. Most of the chatter, however, has been on the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and GeForce GTX 1660. Those may not be the only new GTX cards on the horizon, though—there could be a GeForce GTX 1650 right around the corner as well. As with the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and GeForce GTX 1660, the GeForce GTX 1650 presumably features a Turing GPU underneath the hood. Also like those cards, the lack of certain hardware means it will not be capable of real-time ray tracing or Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS),... Read more...
The only thing getting leaked more often than Samsung's Galaxy S10 lineup (which launches today) is NVIDIA's rumored GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics card. Well, technically it is a rumored model, but it seems pretty clear it exists at this point. Adding to the list of leaks is yet another set of press renders depicting the unannounced card. In addition to various others that we have seen so far, Zotac is also readying a couple of new GeForce GTX 1660 Ti cards, a Twin Fan edition and an Amp model. Both cards feature a Turing GPU underneath the hood, though it's presumably a new version that lacks RT cores and Tensor cores, hence the GTX designation instead of RTX. It's said the Amp edition uses a... Read more...
One of the staple features of NVIDIA's recently launched GeForce RTX series is something called Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS). It promises to deliver better performance in games that support it, though many have noticed that images tend to look blurry at lower resolutions when DLSS is turned on. What gives? NVIDIA addressed that question in a recent Q&A article, and also touched on a number of other related topics. If you are curious about DLSS, the Q&A is a good place to start (hit the link in the Via field below). Andrew Edelsten, Technical Director of Deep Learning at NVIDIA, discusses what DLSS is and how it works. In short, it extracts large samples of aliased frames from games,... Read more...
It appears as though MSI is ready to go with several versions of NVIDIA's not-yet-announced GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics card, all it is waiting for is an formal unveiling. We heard rumblings that might happen today, though if not, we anticipate it will be soon. In the meantime, more leaked photos and press renders are finding their way to the web. To quickly recap, the rumored GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is said to be based on a version of NVIDIA's Turing GPU architecture, but without real-time ray tracing and Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) support. Recent pictures of a naked GeForce GTX 1660 Ti showed a GPU die that is physically smaller than RTX silicon, which leads us to believe it will lack... Read more...
There has been an abundance of leaks pertaining to NVIDIA's as-yet unannounced GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and GeForce GTX 1660 graphics cards, and though the new GTX parts are not yet official, all of the evidence suggests they do in fact exist. If you need further convincing of this, the weekend provided it, in the form of more leaked retail box images and press renders. We'll start with the Galax card, because it is the most interesting one of the bunch. Reddit user Rukey_Lob posted several images of the Galaxy GeForce GTX 1660 Ti packaging, including shots of the front, side, and the text on the back. While this sort of thing is not immune to Photoshopping, it is a bit more difficult than spoofing... Read more...
February 15th is fast approaching, which is the rumored launch date for NVIDIA's Turing-based GeForce GTX graphics cards. According to a report late last week the family will include the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, GeForce GTX 1660 and the GeForce GTX 1650. Today, further confirmation of the new Turing gaming cards comes to us via the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC). Both MSI and Gigabyte issued filings for a slew of GeForce GTX 1060 Ti graphics cards, which were spotted by VideoCardz. The upcoming releases include the following from MSI: GeForce GTX 1660 Ti GAMING Z 6G GeForce GTX 1660 Ti ARMOR 6G OC GeForce GTX 1660 Ti VENTUS XS 6G OC GeForce GTX 1660 Ti GAMING X 6G And...

Shortly after NVIDIA initially launched the first wave of high-end Turing-based GeForce RTX cards, EVGA announced a dizzying array of new graphics cards featuring the new GPU. With that in mind, it should come as no surprise that EVGA did the same when NVIDIA expanded the GeForce RTX family with the more main-stream, GeForce RTX 2060. EVGA already has three RTX 2060s in its line-up, two short-board, single-fan offerings, and a larger, dual-fan model with a GPU that’s clocked significantly higher than NVIDIA’s reference specifications. We’ve got the card in the middle of the stack to show you here today, the EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 XC. This card has a somewhat uncommon form factor,... Read more...
It appears that Apple isn't the only company that is issuing revenue warnings for its most recent quarter; NVIDIA has added its name to the list as well. The company announced today that it has revised its revenue guidance for fiscal Q4 2019 from $2.7 billion down to $2.2 billion. The reason for the downward trajectory in revenue is twofold. For starters, NVIDIA says that its gaming business was impacted due to "macroeconomic conditions" in China. This was also one of the factors that Apple cited as a reason for its revenue shortfall. According to NVIDIA, demand for its gaming GPUs in particular took a hit. More importantly, demand in general was also soft for its brand-new Turing-based... Read more...
Here’s a rather big bombshell that could shake up the graphics market. A new report has alleged pricing for the rumored NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics card, and it looks quite appealing. According to sources that have spoken with HardOCP, the GeForce RTX 1660 Ti, which is said to be based on a de-contented version of NVIDIA's Turing GPU, will have an MSRP of $279. The graphics card is reportedly set to launch on February 15th. But that's not all, those same sources indicate that a standard GeForce GTX 1660 will arrive a month later priced at $229, while an even lower spec’d GeForce GTX 1650 will arrive priced at $179. While all of these cards will feature a Turing... Read more...
While NVIDIA's GeForce RTX family of products has garnered the bulk of the attention in the gaming graphics community over the past few months, we have been hearing some rumblings about another incoming family of Turing-based graphics cards. Rumors have been suggesting that NVIDIA is working on a next-generation GeForce GTX family that will slot under the current GeForce RTX family. The latest report calls out the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, which will allegedly be based on the familiar Turing GPU architecture that underpins the GeForce RTX cards. However, it will have its ray tracing (RT) cores disabled to provide some product differentiation between it and its pricier siblings. ... Read more...
ASUS's Republic of Gamers (ROG) Zephyrus family of gaming notebooks is getting another update today in the form of the ROG Zephyrus S (GX701). This machine one-ups the 15-inch Zephyrus S (GX531) with a 17.3-inch 144Hz G-SYNC panel. But the biggest news with the Zephyrus S relates to the GPU that it uses. While its 15-inch counterpart makes use of a Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1060 or GeForce GTX 1070 with Max-Q design, this enlarged gaming notebook relies on NVIDIA's new Turing-based GeForce RTX 2080 with Max-Q design. This is NVIDIA's latest mobility GPU that brings with it real-time ray tracing goodness that is sure to spread to more games during 2019 (Battlefield V was the headlining... Read more...
