Shadow of the Tomb Raider has NVIDIA's new RTX technology

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: 56 mins ago

NVIDIA has just announced at its GeForce Gaming Celebration event that Shadow of the Tomb Raider will include support for ray tracing technology under its new GeForce RTX range of graphics cards.




An exclusive new video was shown off at the show showcasing the RTX-powered Shadow of the Tomb Raider and it looked truly incredible. The lighting, shadows and overall detail are out of this world, almost like a global graphics upgrade. We need to have some hands-on time with Shadow of the Tomb Raider with both RTX on and off for our own opinion, but man that demo was mind blowing.


More to come!

Battlefield V will have NVIDIA's next-gen RTX technology

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: 1 hour, 4 mins ago

DICE and NVIDIA have both announced during the GeForce Gaming Celebration event in Cologne, Germany that Battlefield V will ship with support for RTX, NVIDIA's new ray tracing technology capable on their next-gen GeForce GTX 20 series cards.




DICE had an new video powered by RTX in Battlefield V, where a flamerthrower blowing flames over soldiers and the wet groundcovered in water. You can see 100% more detail thanks to seeing the flame in the reflection of the water, or in the reflections of windows on the buildings on the street. Even the tip of the gun and the metal around the gun reflects the perfect light from the fire and other light in the image.


NVIDIA calls it the "magic of ray tracing" and they're right... it's day and night.


I'll update this post soon with a video of it, as you really need to see it with your eyes and not words on a screen. It's actually f***ing incredible, and I'm a cynic.


Battlefield V open beta September 6.

NVIDIA announces GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080 and RTX 2070

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: 1 hour, 32 mins ago

NVIDIA has officially announced its next-gen GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards, here in Cologne, Germany at their huge GeForce Gaming Celebration event.




The new GeForce RTX 20 series graphics cards are using their next-gen Turing GPU architecture, something the company has been working on for the last 10 years. The new Turing GPU architecture has ray tracing technology at its heart, hence the use of RTX in the new branding.


This is the biggest GPU release for the company in its history, representing the largest leap in performance courtesy of the truly out-of-this-world Turing GPU architecture.


The new GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is the new flagship Turing-based graphics card that will come in at a huge $999. For that, you're going to get the Turing GPU with 4352 CUDA cores, and 11GB of GDDR6 on a 352-bit memory bus. The GPU is clocked at 1635/1545MHz for base/boost, respectively. You'll notice that the RTX 2080 Ti has its GPU clocked lower than the RTX 2080, but it has much more CUDA cores (4352 versus 2944).




NVIDIA's second RTX graphics card is the GeForce RTX 2080 that is knocked down to 2944 CUDA cores, 8GB of GDDR6 but a lower price of $699. The RTX 2080 has its GPU clocked at 1800/1710MHz for base and boost, respectively. It will roll out with a 215W TDP.




The last card is the GeForce RTX 2070 that will cost $499, with 2304 CUDA cores and the same 8GB of GDDR6 as the RTX 2080. NVIDIA will have less CUDA cores on the RTX 2070 with it clocking in with 2304 CUDA cores, and a 185W TDP.


NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 is incredible quiet, with CEO Jensen Huang saying it is "1/5 the audio levels of GTX 1080 Ti". JESUS!!!

Monster Hunter: World moves 10 million sales worldwide

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 1 hour, 43 mins ago

Shortly after its PC release this month, Monster Hunter: World has topped a new sales milestone. How much higher can it go?




Capcom's juggernaut online action RPG has taken the gaming world by storm; Monster Hunter: World has now sold 10 million copies globally, the publisher today announced. The multiplayer service game, which was in development for four long years at Capcom, helped the company's first quarter profits spike by a huge 647% while pinning down its formula for continued growth and success.


"Monster Hunter: World, the best-selling title in company history, achieved this 10 million-unit milestone following the titles' PC release on the globally accessible Steam platform, allowing the game to appeal to a wider fan base spread across a greater number of regions, and in combination with continued robust sales of the home console version of the game even now, more than six months after its release," Capcom wrote in an announcement post.


While Monster Hunter: World's success shouldn't push Capcom towards more service games--these releases are massive undertakings that take years and years of careful and meticulous work--it will strongly reinforce a multi-platform push. As such we should see nearly all of the company's major games launch on both the PC and home console market, especially when it comes to wholly-owned IPs.

ZOTAC GeForce RTX 2080 Ti AMP! Edition rumored to cost $1199

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: 5 hours, 44 mins ago

We know so much about NVIDIA's about-to-be-announced GeForce RTX series graphics cards, but one of the largest pieces of the puzzle is missing: price. Well, it looks like we could be paying between $700-$1200 for the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti if the leaked pricing from VideoCardz is right.




The site is reporting from information from ElChapuzasInformatico that the ZOTAC GeForce RTX 2080 Ti AMP! Edition will cost a rather large $1199, while the RTX 2080 AMP! will cost $839. This might sound insane, but it makes sense. NVIDIA has a lot of GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards left in the channel and will need to get rid of them.


Why price the new cards at $699 max (RTX 2080 Ti) if it truly is a huge leap in performance over the GTX 1080 Ti? What would the GTX 1080 Ti be priced at tomorrow? $299? The new pricing is big... but we will have confirmation in the coming hours hopefully.

By: Jak Connor | More News: Gaming | Posted: 8 hours, 56 mins ago

Players are going to be absolutely stoked to know that EA are going to be allowing for ballers to customize and create their very own basketball courts in NBA Live 19.

Even though this is not a fundamental gameplay change, the new great customizational ability players have with the "Create Your Court" will no doubt grant some higher levels of immersion. Players will be able to enjoy their games much more when they are playing on a court they customized specifically to their wants. NBA Live 19 will be available on September 7th. For further information regarding NBA Live 19, visit the official NBA Live 19 website here.

The post-apocalyptic world of Flotsam, scavenge and build

By: Jak Connor | More News: Gaming | Posted: 9 hours, 56 mins ago

After the world has gone full apocalypse the remaining survivors need to rebuild and they can only do that from what they find floating on-top of the water, introducing you to Floatsam, the garbage town builder.




Floatsam is a garbage town survival game that allows for players to scavenge the ocean for remains of the once beautiful city. Players will be required to acquire any debris that float by to further build their small town and survive.


Floatsam is being developed by Pajama Llama Games and is published by Kongregate. According to Kongregate's Director of Production Kevin DuPuy "Flotsam is a really fun project; the game's vibrant atmosphere brings a lot of character and personality to the often-grim survival genre. From building food trucks in your floating garbage town to everyone's favorite character 'Steven' the seagull, Pajama Llama has somehow made a post-apocalyptic, fight for survival setting that is both colorful and inviting."

NVIDIA says 'we know you know' about next-gen GeForce RTX

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: 10 hours, 59 mins ago

"You know. We know you know. You know we know you know", this is how NVIDIA opens up their latest blog post that is headlined NVIDIA's Jensen Huang to Kick Off GeForce Gaming Event Ahead of Gamescom 2018.




If that's not confirmation that NVIDIA is about to drop the GeForce RTX series, I don't know what is. Well, I guess I do since we've covered every single rumor and leaked photo or detail on the new cards, something you can check out on our constantly updated post on the new GeForce RTX series.


In the blog post, NVIDIA says that the upcoming GeForce gaming event that kicks off tonight here in Cologne, Germany (I'm here, and will be there tonight) will be "loaded with exclusive, hands-on demos running on the hottest upcoming games, presentations from some of the world's biggest game developers and some spectacular surprises".

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti FE with dual-fan cooler leaked

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: 11 hours, 15 mins ago

The latest rumor is that NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition graphics card will feature a dual-fan cooler, a first for a single-GPU graphics card from the company.




VideoCardz is behind the leak once again, pointing out that the GeForce RTX logo is upside down in the image above for "promotional purposes". Anyway, we should expect the RTX 2080 Ti FE to be a possible exclusive through NVIDIA's own store, making it unavailable to retailers and etailers across the world.


We're expecting the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti to be unveiled today during the GeForce Gaming Celebration event, with the RTX 2080 Ti to rock the TU102 GPU with a huge 4352 CUDA cores, 11GB of GDDR6 RAM on a 352-bit memory bus, what we should expect to be NVLink, and the new VirtualLink connector for next-gen VR headsets.

Horror title SCORN delayed until sometime in 2019

By: Jak Connor | More News: Gaming | Posted: 11 hours, 56 mins ago

Ebb Software, the developers behind the upcoming first-person horror title SCORN have announced that their game will sadly be delayed to 2019. It isn't all bad news though.




For those that don't know, SCORN is an atmospheric first-person horror adventure title that will propel players into an isolated world designed to fiddle with the players mind. The world is nightmareish and different scenarios will entice the thought of "is this real or is this a dream."


The developers behind the title, Ebb Software have announced on the Steam Listing that the title has to be delayed to 2019. This is due to the development company receiving a substantial investment "We managed to sign an excellent deal with the great investment fund and acquire additional funds for the development of Scorn." The delay is so the company can come at the title with a fresh look and give players an overall better experience now that they can build a much more higher quality game. If you are interested in checking out SCORN, visit the official Steam listing here.
